Sandy is the seventh and final book in the Vested Interest series by Melanie Moreland. I have loved this series from the first word of the first page, including The Contract series where all of the characters cross over. It is fitting that the final book focus on Sandy, not only the assistant to the team of men who lead BAM, but their adoptive mother, confidant, even therapist at times. They are a family. And now it is time for Sandy to get her own Happy Ever After.

Oh my gosh! I absolutely loved, loved, loved this book!! Sandy’s story is amazing! This series has been one of my absolute favorites! For the guys at BAM, Sandy is the glue that holds their little family together. She is fierce, tough and tells it like it is, but she loves these men and their families like no other. Through good times and bad, heartache and pain, through their completely bonehead decisions in their relationships, Sandy has mothered them all. But Sandy has faced tragedy and lonel ...more

I don't want to write this review.

If I do, it is admitting this series is over and I refuse.

From the perspective of a alpha/beta reader, this has been an incredible series to watch grow. It was only ever meant to be one book - Bentley. But I got my way when I asked (read this as begged, pleaded and bartered) that Aiden the studly but silent smartass VP of security needs a story. That turned into well it can't just be two books but three. But then we (I am dragging her fans with me because I wa

I was always curious to know more about Sandy, because like Bentley says, she is the glue that holds everything together. And in this book we get to know her and everything that made her the person she is.

This one was the most adorable story thanks to Jordan, he is a GENTLEMAN. He is the man all women desire. He allows Sandy to get her life back at her own pace.

Sandy is still in the past, she lost the love of her life an

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 STARS

This book was so heartwarming and so sweet that it brought tears to my eyes! I loved how Sandy carries herself with class and a loving strength with an ability to put all the BAM boys with their meddling in their place. This is the final book in the Vested Interest series and Melanie has penned a perfect conclusion. Sandy by Melanie Moreland is an EPIC romance that will join the ranks of the BIBLIO-ARISTOCRACY!!!

When I picked up the book Bentley, I had no idea what I was in for. I knew I liked the name and I liked the cover.

I had never read anything by Melanie at that point.

I was floored. I fell in love with the book and my love for the BAM world was born.

Nothing, though, could have prepared me for the end of this series. Blah blah you’ll need tissues to wipe your tears. Whatever. I’ll need nothing. Yeah, I needed the whole damn box!

Sandy is the glue that holds them together. It was high time for her

Aah,what a sweet beautiful read, and the perfect end to the Vested Interest series. Sandy has been a major influencer in all the Bam boys’ lives, and it was truly wonderful to get her perspective on the boys and their company, and to see her get another shot at love following the death of her husband, which we did in fact witness firsthand in Reid’s book. Now three books further along Sandy gets her own story, and possibly her own happy ever after, you’ll have to read the book to find out. With ...more

I shed tears of happiness with the final book in the Vested Interest series. Sandy has been the common denominator in each book. I was ecstatic to find out that Melanie Moreland was closing the series with her book. This story is beautiful and heartfelt. The author delivered an epic conclusion with appearances from each of the Vested Interest boys and their significant others. This is truly a read that will have you all up in your feels. Sandy love story is one I will not forget. The love they g ...more

I have waited patiently for Melanie Moreland to write Sandy's story and it is a bittersweet read. Finally getting Sandy's HEA is a wonderful and highly emotional story that was such a great read it should have more than 5 stars, pulling at our heartstrings and making me cry more than once. However, now it leaves me with the sense of loss to realize the series is over and the BAM boys are finished. It's like saying goodbye to your favorite family that you will miss terribly - but at the same time ...more

Sandy is the seventh and final book of the Vested Interest series. I’m sad that the series has ended now. The author amazed me with every book. Every book (just like Sandy) is filled with emotions, love and beautiful moments. I fell in love with every character and every couple. I was glad the previous couples appeared in this novel. The epilogue was just so beautiful and a great ending of the series.

It’s time for the BAM-mother, Sandy, to find love. Sandy lost her husband a few years ago and sh

I'm not crying you're crying. Ok, maybe I am a little. I received Sandy ARC from Melanie's reader group. Right off the bat Melanie goes right for the readers tears. Sandy has been such a large part of each book in the BAM series and this second chance mature romance is what we all needed to say goodbye to the BAM boys. This book makes me want to start the series all over again to just relive the love, struggle and strength each character has. I enjoyed that each character makes an appearance in ...more

Love Again
I have enjoyed getting to know Sandy throughout the Vested Interest Series. She is the matriarch of the BAM clan and a force to be reckoned with. Sandy is a straight shooter, a nurturer, and strength personified. Ms. Moreland did a fantastic job with this second chance at love story.

The friendship and attraction between Sandy and Jordan was effortless. It warmed my insides and blanketed me in comfort. Their love story was swoony and emotional and buoyant. I loved seeing all of these c

Wow just wow, an amazing story from Melanie. I will say that this story made me cry and laugh. Sandy has always been the rock for the BAM boys, but she is grieving. Jordan also works for the BAM company and has had his own share of grieving. When should the mourning period end? When should one start living, loving, and being happy again? There is no answer to this question but Melanie Sure found a way to break my heart and put it together in Sandy. I will miss this series but it was definitely a ...more

The one that holds them all together, the one that they consider their honorary mom. While Sandy never had any children of her own, she does have a stepson, grandchildren that treat her as such and then there’s the boys of BAM. They each became her unofficial adopted children. Her family grew even more when she decided to love again after losing her husband and who she thought was the same only love of her life. Jordan waited in the background knowing that he and Sandy could become alive again t ...more

If ever there was a heartache waiting to be found, Moreland proves without a shadow of a doubt, she knows just where to look. Sandy forces the heart to stop and take notice. It's raw, inspiring and haunting. I found myself lost in the vulnerable, tortured by the painful and inspired by the hope. Moreland will leave your heart spent, but empowered by the unpredictable, beauty of love. ...more

‘Sandy’ is about an unusual heroine – Sandy is a woman in her 50’s. Jordan, the hero, is also in his 50’s. If you’re familiar with books in the fantastic BAM series, then you know who Sandy is, and likely remember Jordan too.

The opening scene in this book actually gave me chills and real tears too, all within the first few pages. I cried again several times in this story, all different types of tears – happy ones, sad ones, tears of frustration, exultation, and remembrance. As somebody who was

Sandy’s official title may be the office manager for BAM, but she is so much more. Not only does she ensure that the company is a well-oiled machine, but she has been there for each of the men when they needed someone the most. When her husband passed away, he left a huge hole in her world and she is now beginning to consider meeting other men, but love is not on her radar.

Jordon is not only her co-worker and friend, but his wife has passed away as well. He is drawn to both Sandy’s beauty and he

This is the last book in the BAM Vested Interest Series and I am not ready to let them go.

I feel like I know the characters so well having read from the beginning with Bentley so this one had me emotional from the outset. The story of a mature relationship, both Sandy and Jordan have known love and loss, but are ready to move forward and try something new. Sandy deserves to be happy, we've watched her look after each of the BAM boys in her own way and it was good for the focus to be wholly on h

Sandy and Jordan’s love story is about taking a chance to love again after the both lost their spouses, it’s their second chapter of their lives.
While Jordan has been ready to ask Sandy out she hasn’t been quite ready, finally she’s ready to take the step and start dating, Jordan doesn’t give her a chance to find someone else. I loved how caring Jordan is and the ease their relationship seems to be. A little hiccup with Sandy wanting a take a step back but Jordan s little angry though patient. T

Throughout this entire series, Sandy has been a prominent feature. The mom to all of the amazing characters I love so much.

I can't think of two characters that deserve a HEA more than Sandy and Jordan. They deserve to share all of the love they have with others and continue to grow this family they've created.

I had said that the epilogue for It Started with a Kiss was the greatest epilogue of all time. And that was true. Until I read the epilogue for Sandy. I have never felt so reluctant to fini

The BAM boys have built a very successful empire with the help of one woman: Sandy. Sandy has been their office manager, friend, confidant, and mother-figure. She has been the driving force behind their business and their personal lives for a long time. Now that she has lost her beloved husband, the roles are reverse and she needs their support through this next stage in her life, especially when she meets someone who awakens her heart and makes her long for romantic love again.

I have to admit, Sandy is the sweetest of all. Her story is min drama/ twist and yet really sweet. Having another chance in love in her 50's is heart warming.

Even this book is short, do not under estimate Miss Moreland capability to bring so much tender and sweet moment alive.
Now I am ready for the second generation of BAM.

I don't think I have ever cried so much reading a book. I cried at the beginning during a story, and enjoyed the middle and cried buckets at the end. I could connect so much with this book and I think it is probably because I am recently widowed myself and Melanie put all my feelings into this book about Sandy which made me connect so much with it. It all started with the three boys and ended with so much more and large families that all loved with all their hearts. A must read ...more

I've been waiting with anticipation for Sandy's story. She is the woman that takes care of all the men of BAM. She is their surrogate mother who loves and nurtures them like the children she never had while helping them run their empire. It is with bittersweet feelings I review this book as it is the final one in the Vested Interest Series and I am not ready for them to end.

Sandy's husband Max has been dead for over a year and she had taken care of him for the last few years as he had a debilita

The woman who kept the BAM boys in line and loved them like her own finally got her story!. This is the last book in the Vested Interest Series, and it was the perfect ending. While I hope MM will still write us little stories in the future, this book gave me the happy ever after I needed. This series holds a very special place in my heart.

Sandy, while still working hard and never missing a step, she is still grieving over the loss of her husband. She couldn't move on or hasn't even thought of

WOW... how do you say goodbye to a book series that you loved! AWESOME story to an awesome series! Sandy was the glue to the group and it was nice to see she ended the series on a happy note!

5 star Review Sandy (Vested Interest #7) by Melanie Moreland

Have you ever dreaded reading a story because you know that once you have finished, a series that you love will be complete? That is the position I found myself in when I started Sandy, book seven and the final book in the Vested Interest series.

The men and women of BAM have become a family to me. Every time I read one of these books I know I am in for an entertaining and riveting read which will draw me in and have me totally invested

I am gutted this series is over, that this is the final story. But I am so happy that we are ending with Sandy’s story. She is the linchpin of the Vested Interest series. Sandy has been there from the start. Before there was BAM, Sandy was there. Sandy was the guiding light for all our BAM boys and their tech genius, her favourite, the son she never had.
There was so much emotion in her story. There were tears more than once but every one of them was worth it. This is a fabulous story. I love Sa
