    Beauty and the Biker is the first book in Beth's Impossible Dream series. I loved it. It has magic, passion and heart. Bella is a sweet librarian who likes fairy tales. Joe is a former under cover cop from Chicago who has seen too much pain. They meet in Nowhere, Nebraska and somehow they connect. They bring out the best in each other and I loved their journey. I am really looking forward to the next books in the series with the other Inseparable...

    I LOVED THIS BOOK! And it's not because I'm biased and love the sweet quirky author(if you've been lucky enough to meet Ms. Ciotta you know what I mean)She is what she writes- you can see every bit of her personality on the pages she so beautifully crafts(yes, I'm gushing like a total fan girl). This is a strong start to this series. I laughed, and cried. Filled with humor, heart and touch of mystery, this is a truly magical book. I didn't want i...

    Beauty and the Biker is about a woman named Bella who is an upbeat, loveable and down to earth good person who looks on the bright side of things. In this story, Bella ends up falling in love with'the biker', Joe Savage, a man who is haunted by his past which in return makes him a recluse. As Ciotta writes, he is 'the badass loner' but 'scary gorgeous'.I loved the relationship between Bella and Savage. You have your good girl and your 'bad' boy, ...

    4.5 stars!What can I say except that Beth Ciotta has done it again with the start of this new series. Take a jaded ex-cop from Chicago named Joe Savage and stick him somewhere in Nebraska next door to the optimistic ray of sunshine named Bella Mooney and you have Beauty and the Biker. This story will delight readers as Ms Ciotta delivers another story with her signature blend of quirky humor, friendship, family, a dash of suspense, and of course ...

    In all of my years reading romance I have never read an intro between hero and heroine like this. I literally had to put my kindle down as I realized what was about to happen to wrap my brain around it. Absolutely hilarious!!! Now I want to dress up as Bella for Halloween, I've got the mower, just need that ball gown, some colorful sneakers, and a bright colored bag...good to go! Writing a character as good, sweet, and cheery as Bella is hard to ...

    Ciotta is my go to author for quirky, sweet reads. I have a hard time believing that anyone is as sweet or innocent as some of her heroines, but I enjoy reading Ciotta's stories. Bella is sweet and overly chirpy, yet doesn't cross the line into annoying. I smile as I read her interactions with others. Joe is more of a badass. he wants to push others away, and has PTSD (in my opinion, it is never called that in the book), from his work as an under...

    I loved this story! I have been a fan of Beth Ciotta's for some time now, always looking forward to her stories, and this one further solidified my adoration for her storytelling. The story is fun, upbeat, optimistic, a little magical but with enough edge, drama, twists and turns to make me unsure as to how it was eventually going to play out! Just when you think you know where things are going, surprise detour. This story touched on some persona...

    "Beauty & the Biker" by Beth Ciotta - this was an enjoyable and fairly light read. The Hero, Joe, is a man that lives with dark memories from his time as a cop, and Bella, our heroine, is a children's librarian that is the ultimate Ms. Optimist. I found this story to be uplifting and positive, although, I have to admit, Bella's overly sunny outlook on life did grate on my nerves at times. I did enjoy when she got riled up but, it didn't last and ...

    Beauty and the Beast is a fun read. Beth Ciotta has come up with a great first book of a series called the Impossible Dream #1. The book takes place in Nowhere, Nebraska with two main characters that need each other. I love some of the scenes in the book, but by far my favorite was the opening scene for Bella Mooney and Joe Savage. (Yes there is a play on words for their names - there has to be!)Bella is the children’s librarian in the small to...

    I was so excited for this new series to come out, and I was not let down. I enjoy the works of Ms. Ciotta because of her well-written, multi-dimensional characters, story lines that weave in and out of each other to involve those characters, and of course the buzz I get off of the happy ending. This book promises that it will be another series of all of this and more. One thing I especially love is that the characters are (mostly, except for the ...

    I have to admit that I was so disappointed when I found out Beth Ciotta's Cupcake Lovers series wouldn't be continuing, but if it has freed her up to tackle this Impossible Dream series then I'm 100% on board. I finished up Beauty & the Biker last night and was almost too giddy to fall asleep! There wasn't anything that I didn't like about this series premiere. Bella and Joe were such a case of opposites attract, but at heart had so many common q...

    I receive and ARC copy of this book. I loved this book. I am a fan of Beth Ciotta's Cupcake series and got hooked on her books. This has marking of another great series. This is another great love story of the bad boy and the girl with rainbows over her head. I love her circle of friend the Inseparables who were friends from early childhood. It will be interesting to see how these girls stories play out in the next stories in the series. I loved ...

    I absolutely loved this book! It's just so lovely and sweet, and yet has other elements as well -- a little suspense, family drama, friendship, etc. All in all, it's well rounded and everything weaves together beautifully! I adored it & seriously can't wait for the next book in the series!! I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review, but that in no way sways my view -- I love Beth Ciotta's books regardless!!

    Sweet, charming, funny and magical are just a few words to describe the first book in what looks to be a great new series. While the romance develops extremely quickly, it goes with the whole fairy tale like story. Bella brings light into Joe's darkened soul, and Joe brings Bella out of her comfort zone with her writing. Loved the supporting cast of characters, can't wait to read Chrissy's story which is next in the series!4.5 starsARC received i...

    Good but ......I'm in the minority on this read. It was good but I had a hard time connecting with the characters. The book also had an overall sadness to it that I didn't anticipate. Joe and Bella spent more time apart than together. I'm happy that they got their HEA but it took a long time to get there.

    Really enjoyed this book. This is the first time I have read any of Beth Ciotta's books and will be looking forward to reading the next one in this series. The whole book was cute and funny. What I call a "feel good" book. A very good HEA book!
