I do adore small town romance. Its one of my favorite theme on romance. I was expecting something sassy, rom com on And Then One Day. The story is promising such swoon worthy childhood crush turns lover. Especially with a touch of forbidden romance.

Well the sassy part I got it. The rest if it is... off. The characters are immature. Even for NA audience, I need something with more depth. And the job issue is really stupid. I mean, not be able to get a job is just ridiculous. And just because of

Magnolia Sound has to be my all-time favorite series by Samantha Chase. There is something about this town that draws me in every time. The best word I can come up with is easy to describe the series and its stories. They are fantastic lazy afternoon reads, not too dramatic or emotional but yet very heartfelt and captivating.

Courtney and Dean were sweet and sometimes passionate ;) with lots of laughs and just plain magic! There’s nothing like a friend to lover story for me. And this one was spri

Reviewed for a Book Nerd, a Bookseller, and a Bibliophile.

And Then One Day is the 4th installment of the Magnolia Sound series and Samantha has now introduced us to Scarlett's older brother Dean and her best friend Courtney.

Courtney has had a huge crush on Dean for years and Dean has been too blind to notice. This was a very interesting story that starts off with a wham, bam, and thank you ma'am and turns very hot and heavy.

There are moments when Dean and Courtney are too cute for words and ot

And Then One Day by Samantha Chase is book four in her Magnolia Sound Series. The previous book is All the Befores.
Courtney is about to leave town, just after the wedding of her best friend Scarlett. She needs a new home, a new job and somehow a new life too. Her secret crush on Dean, Scarlett's oldest brother leads her nowhere and she has to move on.
Dean likes Courtney just fine, but he's a bit of a loner and words are not his tool.

I love visiting Magnolia Sound! A wonderful best friend's brother romance! The Magnolia Sound series has been amazing so far, and this was another great addition to the lineup. This was the first time that I loved the male character more than the female. Don't get me wrong, I adore Courtney, but she definitely had her immature moments, lol. Thank goodness for alcohol and it's ability to allow the truth to come out...enabling feelings to be revealed that otherwise probably wouldn't have seen the ...more

Dean sure likes to give his woman heart attacks, “you’re supposed to come take a shower with me,” he said from directly behind her. She all but jumped out of her skin at the sound of his voice." Dean needs to give his woman a talking to at times, “are you telling me you don’t even feel bad about making me do all the work?” Dean asked. “Need I remind you how this was all your idea?” I liked this book, I liked Dean. ...more

Oh Dean, how I love thee! As Scarlett’s big brother he has never really thought of her best friend Courtney as anything more than just that, his little sister’s best friend. Courtney on the other hand has been crushing on Dean since she was a teenager despite the fact that he always seemed out of her reach.
Well buckle up and hang on as Samantha Chase tells this thoroughly entertaining and enjoyable story of how things finally change for Dean and Courtney. It is equal parts sweet, charming and s

And Then One Day is the fourth book in the Magnolia Sound series by Samantha Chase. Dean is Scarlett's brother from In Case You Didn't Know and Courtney her best friend. The genre is one of my favorites and I had a good time reading it.

Scarlett was a sore spot in this book. I was not a big fan of hers in her book and things got worse in this one. She was manipulative and her overall attitude left a bitter taste in my mouth. I loved seeing her and Mason as a couple and how they live in their hap

Life as Courtney knows it is about to shift so she decides that it is time for her to embrace a different future rather than just leave everything status quo. She has made plans to leave town after her best friend’s wedding and hopefully leave the feelings she has for Dean, her best friend’s brother behind. But first she enjoys one wedding kiss which leads to a steamy night with Dean however it won’t change her plans, will it?

What in the Sam HELL??

A fade-to-black sex scene? Is that what we're doin' out here folks? In 2020???

Coincidentally, my first DNF (at 18% after that fade-to-black bullshit) of 2020 as well.

Look, I realize that there is an audience for "clean and wholesome" romance novels with little to no sex in them but I ain't it. I like my romance to have some boom boom in it. I'm not talking whips and being tied up or painting bodies with syrup and freaky shit like that but I like a little action.

Reading a Samantha Chase book is like visiting familiar friends.  If you're into the Magnolia Sound series, you're going to love this one.  If you haven't read any of them yet, you're in for a treat!  You can start with And Then One Day because it's a standalone ... and Ms. Chase's writing is so good that she brings you up to speed with the series even if you start beyond the first book.
The synopsis gets it right ... Courtney and Dean have been secretly crushing on each other for years but haven

We’ve watched Courtney as everyone around her found their HEA. She has been the fun friend, the girl who loves having a good time and encouraging others to take a risk on love. It’s not so easy when she’s trying t

As always, I love the Magnolia Sound, NC setting and catching up with the some of other characters in the series. I enjoy how Samantha Chase writes from the perspective of the two main characters. That way you get to know what is going on in each of their minds. And Then One Day is the story of Courtney Baker, dental hygienist and BFF of Scarlett Jones Bishop and Dean Jones ...more

After the death of his mum he became the one his brothers and sister came to to fix their dramas. And as an adult is still the same… but one night, one drunken comment will change forever.

BFF’s sibling romances are my all time favorite romance trope. Even if you yourself never crushed on your siblings’ bestie (or your bestie’s sibling), doesn’t just the thought of something slightly forbidden, but not in an icky way, make you want to know more?
Courtney definitely knew what she was doing when she started crushing on her friend Scarlett’s older brother Dean. That man made me need to fan myself in more than one occasion! Yes, he was also sometimes frustrating, as those brooding, not

Courtney was even more awesome than I had hoped! Meeting her in Mason and Scarlett's book as Scar's best friend gave me high hopes for this spunky, take-charge gal. She turned out to be a well-rounded character that had plenty of self-doubt to go with her sass. She was easy to relate to, especially as she hunted for a job - she wanted to do what she loved and what she had worked hard for, not just something to pass the time.

This series is a delight. The other couples stories have all alluded to Courtney and Deans story, but it is finally here and I am so excited! At first glance it seems the standard crush on best friends brother, but we quickly see that there is more to the story as their backgrounds and current life situations are shared.

As with all SC stories I was swept up in the community and characters life’s. Courtney is shown to be more loud and the life of the party and Dean is shown as more then just the
