    One Reply to “Apart at the Seams”

    1. Apart at the Seams is more along the line of Women's Fiction, with a touch of romance. Unfortunately this book is pretty dull, and the characters, specifically the heroine, and her live-in immature boyfriend are very one-dimensional. Not even the possibility of a new love interest for the heroine, Arianna can spruce up the plot or save it. Half way through, the story became very boring and Arianna's non-stop complaints about her life was tiresome. Ethan comes and goes without any real purpose ot [...]

    2. Arc provided by Belle Books through Netgalley This is the first book that I have read by this author, so I had absolutely no idea of what to expect writing wise.Honestly, I just wanted an engaging contemporary romance to read, while I chose my next fantasy book.I'll come out and say it, _since this affects great part of the story_ but I almost DNF this one.The beginning was troublesome, the middle was longh, so the only thing that redeemed it was basically the final part.How it starts:Normally w [...]

    3. Sometimes being comfortable is just as scary as change. Arianna has a fulfilling life as a single mom, a career in the fashion world and a loving boyfriend. Now, Ethan can be like her second kid but knowing him for most of her life has perks. She thinks everything is peachy until a friendship blooms with a stranger. She questions everything. Can she handle the emotional challenges? This was a smooth and lovely read. I gave it 4 stars because I didn't really feel her emotions. Lots of beautiful c [...]

    4. I read Melissa Ford's other two books, "Life from Scratch" and "Measure of Love" and enjoyed this one as much as the others.Arianna, Rachel's friend from the previous books, is at the centre of this story. Arianna is juggling the responsibilities and demands of being a single mom, a girlfriend and an aspiring fashion designer. She is living with Rachel's brother, Ethan. That in itself brings on a new set of worries and issues. She begins a friendship with a man and begins to develop feelings for [...]

    5. I got sucked into the third part of a book series. The first two focus on Rachel and her divorce and food blog; the second on Rachel getting engaged in Adam and the third, which I think I liked the best, looks at the same time frame as book two from the perspective of Rachel's best friend Arianna. We see numerous events from a totally different viewpoint as well as hear about Arianna, her son, her boyfriend and her ambitions.

    6. To be honest, i only read 35% of book. It was just taking too long to take off. I think the author did a good job of building the characters. I was hoping the story would pick up the pace and reel me in but it just wasn't happening.A copy of this book was given to me by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    7. I've not read the other books by Melissa Ford, but I'm now compelled to do so. I love her writing style - it held my attention from the first page. I admit I was sort of pulling for a different ending right up until the last 30 pages or so. But then my heart was swayed and I felt myself cheering for the heroine. Great read.

    8. *ARC FOR HONEST REVIEW*Loved this book! Great summer read! You will want to read all of Melissa Ford's books after reading this one. Very talented author! Well written easy to follow love story.

    10. This was my favourite of the trilogy! I loved being able to see the story from Arianna's perspective. I also enjoyed that the storyline wasn't predictable. I thought I saw where it was going & was then left with my jaw in my lap.

    11. After having read Life from Scratch and Measure of Love from Rachel's perspective, it was interesting to read her friend Arianna's perspective. I enjoyed the story about a career oriented woman trying to juggle between the launch of her creative career and the needs of her boyfriend and son.

    12. I always feel as if in need to finish up a series, so I checked out this third book in a trilogy. Told from the perspective of the best friend, it was interesting to see the differences on the story.

    13. I really enjoyed the final book in this trilogy. I like the concept of the side-by-side sequel, getting to know what was going on behind the other side characters from book 2.
