All We Knew



For Hunter and Sara, getting married was easy. It’s staying together that’s the true test of love…

Hunter Cabot deeply loves two things: the international tea company he’s helped his father build, and his wife, Sara. From the moment he first saw her wide smile on their college campus years ago, Hunter fell hard. Yet now, with other family members pushing to sell the thriving business and Sara grieving their failure to start a family, he’s suddenly facing the crushing loss of both.

The relentless ambition that Sara once admired in Hunter is now driving them apart. Each missed doctor’s appointment, neglected dinner date, and family squabble accentuates their differing priorities. Still, Sara struggles to create the home life they’d envisioned, until unsettling developments—both personal and professional—push them to the breaking point.

When love is put to the ultimate test, can Hunter and Sara stop fighting each other long enough to fight for their marriage?


My Review

All We knew is a captivating novel about family secrets, lies, and broken promises. This is also a novel about the power of forgiveness and how it can soften and heal even the hardest of hearts.

Sara Cabot longed to have children. But after years of trying to get pregnant, even with the help of medical intervention, motherhood, remained just a dream for her. Sara and Hunter both felt that their relationship was a strong one. They thought that they would be able to weather just about anything, but when Sara’s desire to become pregnant became an obsession, and Hunter’s passion for the family business came before Sara, a wedge was driven between them.

The characters in this book are well-developed and intriguing. Sara was my favorite; her loving personality won me over right from the start. Hunter, however, took a bit longer. Although Hunter loved Sara and tried to please her, his strong desire to succeed, had him placing his work before his wife’s needs, again and again.

This book has wonderful lessons, woven seamlessly, into the fabric of the story, giving the novel depth and meaning. Some of the thoughtful topics covered in this book are forgiveness, empathy, compassion, and compromise. One of the hardest things for a person to do is to see themselves in a clear, honest, light. But, when they do, anything is possible.

Thank you, Montlake Romance and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy.

Don’t Miss Jamie Beck’s Newest Release, Coming 8/22/17!

Before I Knew is an Emotionally Raw, Compelling, and Touching Novel. 


Before I Knew, is an amazing story about, starting over, second chances and honesty. I was immediately caught up in the story’s plot and drawn into Alec and Colby’s lives. This is the third novel that I have read by Jamie Beck, and I loved it. It’s compelling, well-written and emotionally raw. I didn’t want to put it down.

Alec Morgan has loved Colby Cabot-Baxter since childhood. His brother, Joe, the athletic one, however, was the brother who won Colby’s friendship. The Morgan’s and the Cabot family have been friends for years, but that all changed, when Joe died. Joe had acted on a foolish dare, which ended his life; Mark Baxter’s dare. Alec’s family blamed Colby’s husband, Mark Baxter, but Alec knew it wasn’t entirely Mark’s fault. Not by a long shot. Three months after Joe’s death, Mark committed suicide. Both Colby and Alec were riddled with guilt. They both were hiding secrets and lies of omission. Colby had never told her family and friends about Mark’s secret. If she had, would Mark still be alive? Possibly.

Secrets of omission can be just as damaging as outright lies. Alec wanted to come clean with Colby, but he just couldn’t spit the words out. He has loved Colby for forever, and now that he had her in his arms he didn’t want to crush his chance of making her, his. Alec just knew that their relationship would end if Colby discovered what he was hiding. But, secrets and lies of omission have a way of unearthing themselves, and the fall-out is never pretty. Can Colby and Alec’s relationship survive, when the inevitable happens?

Before I knew, is a brilliant beginning to The Cabots Series. I’m looking forward to reading more by this talented author.

Thank you, Montlake Romance and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy. I loved it!

*Unexpectedly Hers* by Jamie Beck


Don’t Miss Jamie Beck’s Newest Captivating Romance. I loved It!

Emma never thought that using Wyatt Lawson, the snowboarding, gold medalist, as an inspiration for her debut novel would hurt anyone. But, that was before Wyatt decided to stay at her Inn for a month. Emma tried her best, to keep her book fantasies, work and Wyatt’s flirtations separate and under control. Sterling Canyon was a small Colorado town, and it wouldn’t do to have gossip buzzing around, especially if anyone discovered that she was writing an erotic novel.

Emma was tired of being responsible for everyone else’s happiness. What about her own? Writing, was her way, of letting her wild side run free. But, what if Wyatt found out that he was the main character in her book? Emma would die of embarrassment; Wyatt would be furious, and their budding, more than friend’s relationship, squashed.

Unexpectedly Hers is a very enjoyable read, captivating and well-written. Thank you, Montlake Romance and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy.
