  • Claire Robinson
    3 - "The past doesn't matter. Because I know what I see now." Stars.More Than a Feeling is one of those books I didn’t love, but I didn’t hate it either. This is the first book I have read from the series so you can certainly read it as a standalone. There is no doubt Sara Richardson can write a great story, but I personally had a few niggles with her characterizations in this one.The big one for me, and the main clincher for the whole story ...

    I really wanted to like this book, but unfortunately I just couldn’t connect with the characters. I liked Ruby, and the way she was with all the foster kids, but I got very annoyed with her at times. She would get angry at Sawyer, understandably so, and would want nothing to do with him, but then when she sees him again her anger just fades away because he’s so gorgeous and she’s so attracted to him. Ugh. Sawyer wasn’t a bad character, b...

    MORE THAN A FEELING is book three in the Heart of the Rockies series by Sara Richardson but it’s the first book of this author that I’ve tried. I’m a sucker for these kind of small-town stories and I found myself enjoying this one a lot. Richardson is able to capture the sweet and sexy all into one perfect package and it’s safe to say that I will be trying more from this author.The heroine of this story Ruby James is an interesting charac...

    Love couldn’t have a more beautiful backdrop….Where is the Walker Mountain Ranch and how can I get there as quickly as possible? I’ve only been to Colorado once, too many years ago to count, but any memories I have seem to have crawled into the pages of this series. Solid, dependable people who are real—loving, compassionate and as flawed as anyone as they struggle with all that life can throw at them. Sawyer Hawkins embodies all of those...

    The first thing that drew me to this series was definitely the covers but the more that I got into the stories the more the characters just jumped out at me. This book was no different and I'm so glad to finally get Ruby's story! If you read the previous books you remember that Ruby just showed up one day out of the blue and started working for the Walker mountain ranch. Now she has been the chef there for a year but things are coming up missing ...
  • Ann Lorz
    This is the first book I've read by Sara Richardson but it won't be the last. I really enjoy this story. It's well-written with complex characters, a charming backdrop and a heartwarming story. I really wished I started this series at the beginning. I felt like I was missing something from all the interaction of the prior characters from the first two books. I will make sure to start her next series at the beginning. I really enjoyed Sawyer and h...

    Ruby is my kind of hero. She learns to overcome her fears. And she has a lot of them.She has some secrets that she didn’t want to share. She lived in foster care when her mom got put in jail. She had a man who would beat her and she lived in fear until one day she got out. When she runs she finds herself on the Walker Ranch. She works hard. She made some girl friends. But she finds an attraction to a man and doesn’t know what to do about it. ...
  • Myst
    There was definitely some chuckles in this with the rolling pin incident and the ATV. It is a interesting story but it feels drab to me, I shuffled through each chapter. Which is sad as I normally like battered women finding her backbone stories. Loved how she finally got her backbone. I would definitely keep an eye out for this series but I can not see myself doing a click and buy, I can see myself borrowing via overdrive. Find it strange that t...
  • Cindy
    Love this series. The setting is wonderful and the characters are interesting. The problems faced by the characters are realistic and draw you into the story. Great writer.
  • Cyndi Becker
    Leave it to me to fall head over heels in love with a series and new to me author on book three in the series. More Than A Feeling (Heart Of The Rockies#3) is one of those contemporary romance books that reminded me why I love the genre so much. Every element of a great story is tucked in the pages of this book. There's a bit of mystery, some angst, a second chance at love, and the ability for two people to help to mend themselves and each other....
  • Char (1RadReader59)
    This book revolves around Walker Mountain Ranch and those associated with it. Namely the owners of course: Bryce and Avery Walker with his mother the head chef Elsie. She seems to be the heart and soul of the place with the love that keeps it glued together. Then there’s Bryce’s cousin Sawyer Hawkins but also he is his best friend. Right now they are in a transition period close but Sawyer is on the back end of a messy divorce. Because his wi...
  • Misty (Red's Romance Review's)
    Ruby James has never known true love or what it feels like to be loved by someone wholeheartedly, and to be honest she's not even sure she'd be able to recognize it if it was right in front of her. But that doesn't stop her from believing that it does exists...just maybe not for her! After spending most of her young life in the foster care system and being passed from family to family and never finding that special family connection she has alway...
  • Bec_BookMagicReviews
    after what her ex put her through, Ruby James needed to find a place that made her feel safe, and it seems she's finally found that place in Aspen, Colorado. Working for the Walkers is the best thing to happen to her, but when police officer Sawyer Hawkins starts asking personal questions, she doesn't know what to do. Because if anyone found out she was on the run, it could put them in danger and she's not about to let anyone get hurt.When he's a...

    Check out more of my reviews on at Home. Love. Books. - The best place to find your next book! http://www.homelovebooks.comSo I wanted to really like this book, but I have to admit that it reminded me a lot of a couple other books I had read with similar storylines. I will say that I really do love small town romances, and I do like the storyline of someone on the run or who has changed their identity, it always adds an extra layer of interest f...
  • Veronica of V's Reads
    4.5 StarsThis is the third book in a series, but can be enjoyed as a standalone. I want to also note what may be a trigger warning: the plot centers on a domestic violence survivor who fled her abusive fiance just a year before. There are some recollections that are troublesome, but no graphic depictions.When Ruby James arrived in Aspen a year ago she knew no one and was luckily able to find shelter with the loving family at the Walker Mountain R...
  • Catherine (The Sassy Bookster)
    MORE THAN A FEELING is such a jubilant story of strength, courage and love that is sure to leave a smile on your face and warmth in your heart. Ruby James and Sawyer Hawkins are two people running away from their pasts. For Ruby, Walker Mountain Ranch has become her refuge from a life filled with fear and pain but an attractive police officer has given her reason to hope that she can find happiness again.For Sawyer, Aspen is the place where his d...
  • Jennifer Zorko
    I have been waiting for Ruby and Sawyers story since the first book in this amazing series. Like with all of the other books this one can be read as a stand alone. I have read them all and enjoy going back time and time again to revisit friends and family from the previous books. This book is about trusting and having faith, finding inner strength and standing up for what you believe in. It is the amazing story of Ruby and Sawyer.Ruby James is hi...

    Rosalie's review posted at Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews3.5 starsMore Than a Feeling is a third in the series, but the first that I have read. The cover was gorgeous and immediately pulled me in. Not even having read the other two in the series prior, I was able to follow this plot wonderfully.Ruby James, the main character, is running from an abusive relationship and has done everything that she possibly can (taking over someone else's identity ...
  • Deanna
    *ARC provided by Publisher in exchange for a fair and honest review*More Than A Feeling is an emotional read, particularly at the beginning, with my heart absolutely breaking for Ruby and what she’s had to go through in her life. It’s no wonder she’s lost her belief in magic (and love), with what she’s experienced. But even as afraid and hurt as she is by her past, she still has the ability to hope, she still has the ability to pick herse...

    Read the full review on Bookaholics Not-So-Anonymous.Note: This ARC was provided by Forever Romance in exchange for an honest review.I've been a fan of the Heart of the Rockies series ever since I first read No Better Man last year, my enjoyment increasing with each new book added. I've been wanting to read Sawyer and Ruby's love story for some time, and theirs is a second chance romance of sorts, both having been burned by love the first time ar...

    More than a Feeling, is my first introduction to author, Sara Richardson and I am thrilled by what I discovered among the pages of this book! In fact this title alone is the only book that I have read so far this year that I couldn't put down for more than a minute as I loved every minute of the story itself-Beautifully detailed, alluring and heartwarming this is one of the best-written contemporary romances that I have had the pleasure of readin...

    The emotional turmoil at the beginning of the story pulled me in, and the story continued to enchant me, until the very end.It was so easy to feel connected to the characters, to their struggles, burdens from the past, and triumphs of the present. All the characters, including the supportive cast, were well described, with deep characteristics, and attributes that were easy to admire. They were the kind of people you want to spend time with, the ...
  • Deanna (A Novel Glimpse)
    More Than A Feeling is the third book in the Heart of the Rockies series, but is easily read as a standalone romance. It was the first book I've read by Sara Richardson and I was impressed with her writing style. I would put it in the same category as some of my favorite contemporary romance authors (Shalvis, Higgins, Kantra -- to name a few). This story was filled with interesting and engaging characters. Ruby was a woman struggling to leave her...

    As soon as I started reading this one, I could not put it down. The author hooks you from the start. Well, she hooked me anyway. It 's a really addictive novel with well-developed and very realistic characters with which is easy to be in tune. It 's a funny story but with some sad and tormented moments.Ruby and Sawyer must constantly come to terms with their past. Ruby works at the Walker Mountain Ranch, here she finally has found a place she can...
  • books are love
    Overall liked. I love Sawyer but Ruby I did have a few issues with. Mainly because of her treatment to Sawyer although they give us some hysterical moments her way with him for alot of the book don’t like.Ruby is a complex character with a painful past that has her running. This past has her skittish and afraid of a good guy Sawyer and because of how she acts he begins to wonderfu about her and looks into her. She is kind and caring though.We b...

  • Tina Lee Harris
    3.5 starsThis was the first book that I have read by the author, third in the series and can be read as a standalone. I enjoyed the characters, the story and the setting. Ruby James has had a hard life. She knows what it feels like to be down and when she has had enough, she plans her escape. Although she is not sure where she is going, anywhere far away would be great. She ends up in Aspen, Colorado. She can be anyone she wants here. But she has...
  • Ineffable Book Blog
    More Than a Feeling is the perfect weekend read... Or the perfect read any time! I really loved the concept of the book even though the blurb is vague, yet this adds to the surprises present within the novel. More Than a Feeling is definitely a tale of happenstance and finding love when you least expect it (and maybe even when you least want it). Each of the characters in this novel are going through challenges within their lives and throwing lov...
  • Cathy
    "More Than a Feeling by Sara Richardson. Ruby and Sawyer - what a pair! Ms. Richardson has written a tale that has deep emotion and heartfelt love. She touched my heart with both Sawyer and Ruby's stories. Ruby has had it rough but still tries to find a reason to smile. It's hard for her to trust but Sawyer seems to get through. Despite having his own heartache, he's a caring and kind man that, oh, is also super sexy. Together, they are terrific ...
