Sweet and clean romance coming right upKaren Rock knows how to write sweet romances I'm glad to see her joined up with Harleuin It's a perfect fitI like books where friends turn into something Kayleigh and Niall have been friends for a very long time but after a tour in Afghanistan with some very dark memories haunting him Niall has chosen to keep his distance and hide away from the world Kayleigh doesn't understand his distance and tries to find a way back into his life Niall is keeping secrets but as per usual secrets have a way of coming outKayleigh and Niall seem to be polar opposites Where Niall is reclusive and on edge Kayleigh is determined and full of energy and hope She pushes forward mostly unwaveringly Kayleigh's relationship with her grandpa was super sweetIt is that strong base of friendship that keeps Niall and Kayleigh coming back trying to work things out Niall is a bit of a bonehead but he eventually figures things out Thank goodness One of my favorite thoughts from the book is that the best gift we can give to those who have gone before us and to those who have given their lives in defense of our freedom is to live our lives fully and gratefully This is an easy reading sweet contemporary romance There was no sexual content or swearing It was simply a good escape Everyone knows you can't program love It's meant to happen naturally and no voodoo spell or drink this magical potion is going to land you into the arms of the one and only But just maybe a new app can well that's what Kayleigh Renshaw thinks when she comes up with the idea of a brilliantcompatibility app but the app's not for her to find love it's only meant for others of the lonely life world to discover their true love she'll keep playing it safe it 's the right thing to do The app is the wave of the future and the best kind of matchmaking software money can buy All she needs to make it work is a programmer to help her bring the idea to the market And she knows the perfect rope me in am yours for the taking to work the magic needed But there's a catch because Mr work my magic Naill Walsh is not only Kayleigh's former best friend but also the one that has been avoiding her since his return from Afghanistan She can't uite seem to figure out if it's just her or if something far darker is holding him back Can she gain access to his mind and discover what lies hidden behind his lazy all is well smile or will she end up running away from her best friend when the truth is revealed?I have been a huge fan of Karen Rock's truly inspirational reads since her first book This author manages time and time again to take a everyday situation and turn it into such a vivid and realistic story that it is as if the characters are not simply a name on the page but right there in front of you going through the worst time of their lives or finding their very own happy ever after And this time was no different During this read I found myself thinking this is not a book these are not just characters this is not just a story this is real lifeIn this read I felt each and every single drop of emotion as if I was the one living it The fear and anger Naill goes through at the loss of friend the rage he feels at not knowing if what he is doing is the right thing or if he is simply mucking up again The heartache and feeling of being completely torn between honor towards her family and the man she has come to love that poor Kayleigh has to face I than once pulled out the tissues and bawled like a baby The character of Naill was such a heartbreaking one that I simply wanted to grab hold of this man and just hold him I felt so sad for him and what the demons he had to face and it reminded me of all the warriors of war out there that sadly I see each day They come home with nightmares flashbacks and truly go through hell trying to try and re learn life without thinking of what happened out on the battlefield Some never even find the courage to crawl out from the hell they hide behind and simply fade away from the world But then there are those like Naill who find a purpose to live again and this author reminded me that there is always hope and a way out The scars never go away but with someone by your side they do get better and just a little easier to handle The character of Kayleigh was so sweet and so kind and just wants to make the world smile I adored her so much and I saw myself in her all the way It is a far nicer feeling to make people smile then sad So yes I totally adored Kayleigh She was so strong and courageous it made me so proud and I truly wished she could be real because I know for darn sure we would be best friends Her not wanting to forget her family and the honor anyone would have for one's family made me sad not because I don't believe in honor for I definitely do but because it made it so much harder for her to try and accept what happened to Naill It is never easy to chose between being angry because of loss and learning to accept what happened and to instead fill your heart with love and not regret and hate Through this character the author showed me that if we do go with the I cannot accept what you caused option then we will be pretty much as good as the walking dead You will be left behind from the world and find yourself alone and in a pretty dark place incapable of loving others I am taking away so many powerful messages from this read but the one that comes to light the most throughout the read is that we should never hide Not from the world not from those we love and never from those we have lost The world does not count because they are not ones that determine out happiness we are The ones we love are the ones that will always be there for us no matter what so don't push them away And those ones we have lost will never truly be gone the memories of the times you sent together will always be there and those can never be taken away so don't let the ghosts of the past hold you back smile and wave at them each day and thank them for looking down on you and giving you a chance to liveI highly recommend this read for all fans of romance reads The book is such an inspirational read you will find yourself having a new zest for life no matter what the circumstances you are facing might be You will want to push harder and harder to find a way out of what ever you might be needing to face A truly remarkable magical blow me away bawl my eyes out make my heart soar have anyone and everyone believe in romance read 55 star review Together they rescue each other This book got me from the opening line it is addictive highly entertaining and swoon worthy all at the same time Karen Rock delivers a brilliantly touching novel that will leave you wanting and breathless all at the same time Rock has a way with words that will leave her readers enchanted with her story and falling in love with the characters over and over again Rock delivers a storyline that is sweet romantic funny and heart warming all at the same We all have that friend back in the day that the friendship was always on the border of being than friends or just friends and I think this is where Rock touches her readers the most The friendship between the two is such a foundation for such a great storyline and the characters are both so likeable it is hard not to root for them Rock does a wonderful job in creating a story that will leave you wanting and turning the pages at all hours of the night to find out what is going to happen nextI loved the fact that Kayleigh Renshaw didn’t let her cheating ex boyfriend hold her back after all he did tell her she would be back I loved how she stood up to him and stood her grounds Her fiery personality didn’t let him keep a grasp on her and allowed her to do what she felt was right I love strong female characters who don’t put up with the BS that some characters in other books do and leave me screaming at the them Kayleigh was the oppositeI definitely recommend this book to anyone who wants a good read and a heartwarming tale that will leave you yearning for the friendship that could of would of might of been You can't program loveor can you Kayleigh Renshaw has come up with the idea for a brilliant compatibility app a new kind of matchmaking software All she needs is a programmer to help her bring the idea to marketand she knows exactly who she wants But Niall Walsh—a code whiz and her former best friend—has been avoiding her since he returned from Afghanistan In spite of their history and some sparks that go beyond friendship he's proving reluctant Is it her or is something darker holding him backWholesome Romance New York City Internet Dating Clean Romance War Veteran Wounded Hero Karen Rock is becoming a favorite author of mine I love her Heartwarming stories I was very drawn to both of the the main characters in this story I know something of how war can haunt those than have been there My dad served in Vietnam His memories will always scar him Because of this I could understand Niall's character It was inspiring to watch him overcome some of this darkness and move on with his life I enjoyed Kayleigh's spunk and courage to do hard things She was breaking out of her comfort zone We all have to do that sometimes I could really relate to these characters as they struggled to open up and trust one another I really felt like a part of their lives Karen wrote another beautiful story I received a copy in exchange for an honest reviewAs soon as I hear of this book I knew I wanted to read it not only is it written by Karen Rock but the plot also sounded really interesting Main character Kay is developing a compatibility app and I liked how the technology was incorporated into the story at it's core it's still a romance story but the app gave it a nice flavourFrom the first page I knew I was going to enjoy this book I really like Karen's writing style and I liked Kayleigh from the moment she stood up to her old boss and decided to make her own choices She's such a strong character finally taking a chance and fighting for herself I could easily relate to Kayleigh as I've been in sort of the same position before and also started my own company and I know the doubts that go along with it I also liked Niall there was one thing he kept a secret from Kayleigh almost the whole book and I just knew it was going to be an issue I wish he would've told her earlier but then there would've been less drama towards the endThe romance was done well and believable Kay and Niall where childhood friends and after some years apart they meet again I have a soft spot for friend to lovers stories and I thought the trope was handled well in this book Their romance was sweet heartfelt and believable I also liked the side character Karen really knows how to make you feel for the side characters and animals in her books as well I loved the two cats that played a role into the story My favourite side character was Josh the misunderstood angry child of Beth and Chris It was amazing to see him change and grow throughout this book and the scenes with Niall and Josh where really sweet and well writtenTo conclude I really enjoyed this book the story was interesting and the pace matched the story The main and side characters where well developed and I could easily relate to Kay The romance was sweet and believable Someone Like You is a sweet novel about 2 characters who rediscovered themselves through their loveIt’s a pure romance novel with funny moments Moreover it features the conseuences of war; conseuences affecting the soldiers’ families and also conseuences affecting the soldiers themselvesIt also speaks about how people view themselves Kayleigh is a woman who has suffered from grief A woman who takes care of everyone she loves A woman who was betrayed and hurt by her fiancee A woman who never really got to see her true self A woman who only saw what her delusional arrogant asshole fiance saw Niall suffers from survivors guilt and guilt in general He doesn’t see himself as a hero or as a good man He sees himself as a cruel grumpy anti social man who has nothing to offer to anyoneKayleigh uses that betrayal to prove to everyone that she’s not weak and she can make it on her own Niall’s wake up call is when he is really left alone That’s when he realizes that he doesn’t want to be alone He doesn’t deserve to be alone They meet again after all those years they fall in love with each other once and they discover themselves They rely on each other and they learn to see themselves as the other doesIt’s a really beautiful story well written with wonderful charactersThe only reason why I don’t rate it with 5 stars is the lack of intensity I wanted something stronger a highlight of some sort I honestly enjoyed the book very much but it didn’t have that spicy something It is a good book just not an extraordinarySo 4 Gorgeous Stars go to Someone Like You Rating 4 12 starsI received this book for review from Harleuin and the author I was not compensated nor was I reuired to write a positive review The opinions I have expressed are my own This author shows her readers what returning vets must be feeling This story can also be an affirmation not to give up on any of the soldiers who seem to have trouble adjusting to being home But patience has to be your friend because anything worth fighting for may take some time on your part And they just may need a little push from a loved one to get them to feel a part of something againKaren shows the reader that you don’t need sex to have a great book – you just need to be able to feel a connection between the two main characters She also shows the reader that you may think you know someone and then they turn around and walk all over you but you need to be strong enough to show how much of a better person you are and don’t stoop to their level It was a great read from start to finish and a great incentive to read of this author’s work This is the first book I've read by Ms Rock and I can honestly say that I will be looking forward to reading It's the story of Kayleigh and Niall two childhood friends that reconnect as adults Both are suffering hardships and heartbreak can they fight through their pain and see the love that sparks between them? Niall a veteran is suffering from survivor's guilt will Kayleigh help him overcome that guilt? Kayleigh is struggling professionally she needs Niall's help to make it but will he believe in her enough? She also seems to be the rock that holds her family together but who holds her up? Watching these two grow and recognize what is between them was enjoyable and believable I felt connected to both characters and felt their feelings made me laugh and cry a real winner in my book This isn't a steamy romance filled with sex scenes but a clean beautiful story of two people falling in love Received copy for honest review
