    There's no other way to put it.I'm disappointed.At the beginning the slowness didn't bother me because it was a (well written) slow burn "romance". In fact, I was pretty excited and I was loving it. But then at 50% still nothing was burning and I've begun to lose interest.There was no sexual tension. None. No build-up. I feel like saying "I felt nothing!". Every emotion I had was never related to them as a couple.This is not an enemies-to-lovers ...

    A must-read NA novel that can be read as a standalone or part of the fabulous CONTOURS OF THE HEART series. This novel tackles some tough issues. It's eye-opening and will break your heart as well as make you swoon. Smart, sexy, and beautifully written. Expect the unexpected! This novel has depth, compassion, and a window into this world reminding us that hatred is poison and love can transform. BRAVE reminds us all to stand up for what's right. ...

    Worth the waitTammara Webber once again proves to be a masterful storyteller and the Queen of character development. It's been a long while since I've been unable to put a book down until it was finished. The characters are likeable, the story is engaging, the issues aren't shied away from. All that and the chemistry is between Erin and Isaac is palpable. This is going to be re-read, and often.

    I'm trying not to be disappointed, but I am. I know I shouldn't compare books but Easy is still a favorite book of mine. I'm talking multiple re-reads so that makes it shiny and important to me. This story lacked all the shine and sparkle. I'll even shorten that last word and tell you that the spark between the two characters wasn't all that spectacular either. I wasn't invested. The butterflies in my stomach didn't come out to play. So I'm giv...

    This is a quiet little book that slowly builds things. The romance is subtle, which works really well. As much as I liked the romance I liked Erin working on figuring out her life. I liked the couple of times that she talked about things with Issac, he gave her some great advice. I was almost to the end of the book and not much had happened, leaving me wondering how things would end. Then Issac comes in with some game changing info, some of which...

    This was beyond disappointing. Utterly heavy-handed, way too much detail about things completely disconnected from the plot while glossing over things I would’ve cared to read a lot more about to make me more connected to Erin and Isaac and their relationship - which didn’t even happen until the last chapter and epilogue, and in a completely dissatisfying way, I have to add, and by then I barely bothered reading it thoroughly. The mark was sa...

    It has been a long, long time since I’ve read a Tammara Webber book and coming back to one is a reminder of ‘Contours of the Heart’ as one of the first few books that actually made me aware of the then-emerging New Adult (sub)genre that had suddenly scored big hits with so many people. As the rocky relationship between Isaac Maat and Erin McIntyre emerges in the first few chapters however, what I’d evidently also forgotten is Webber’s s...

    Okay let's see:- enemies to lovers-opposite-this cover-blurb-heroine from previous books all of that got me to swoon really hard, and be all like I want to read it, badly.This had everything to be extraordinary romance book. Great hero; smart, courageous, honorable, handsome. Likable heroine, yes she is privileged, but I liked her. She also was very smart and I did not find her annoying. At all. I liked the plot line and slow burn of this story. ...

    I'm thrilled that we finally received Erin's story. She was a favorite of mine from previous books in this series, and I thoroughly enjoyed her journey is this book. While I understand her personal growth was the focus of the story, I did feel the romance was lacking, leaving me feeling a bit disappointed at the end.

    This was Very Good. This whole series is good, and I'd forgotten how much I enjoy it. I was surprised at how late in the book the romance started, but that's sort of in line with this series, in that the main stuff is always about the protagonist anyway. Since it's set in 2014/2015 there are a fair few conversations about Ferguson and Tamir Rice which feel better a few years removed, but were still a little pointed, BUT I like that Webber tried, ...

    Beautifully Brave This was worth the beautiful wait. I adore everything about the words that Mrs. Webber always gives us. I loved Erin in easy, but this story was wonderful, from the dedication to the acknowledgements. To find these characters that are hurt and damaged and trying to find themselves and love is always beautifully done. These two wonderful people were struggling, but they found what they needed in each other. It made my heart so ha...

    Just about as perfect as you can get. I couldn't have enjoyed this more. I missed the male POV at first but I soon learnt what was in Isaacs head because he was so candid with Erin. Love. Love. Love.

    Originally posted on Smitten by Books Reviews blog . 4.5 Top PickI was introduced to Tammara Webber’s books by way of Easy, which was easily one of the best (if not best) book I read that year. I was so delighted and impressed by it, I immediately devoured her entire backlist, which was the Between the Line series. At this point I’m even more impressed. Easy wasn’t a one-off. Ms Webber is a talented storyteller and a wonderful writer. I wi...

    A really good sequel to this emotional series! I also liked how this story tackled social issues in the US along with the growing affection of Erin and Issac.

    I had been waiting on this book so long, I forgot why. I even forgot who Erin was. I had to ask a friend! That makes me sad because Brave and Tammara Weber's entire Contour of the Hearts series is so good! I love her writing and the world she has created.Brave was a slow burn romance. The characters, Erin and Isaac, started off as co-workers. Isaac was Erin's boss, and he wasn't her biggest fan. This spurred Erin into action. Their feelings built...

    The moment I saw the cover, I was excited. I really enjoy reading about multiracial couples and I wish there are more in fiction. I really enjoyed Easy and thought this would be just as good. Well there was good and bad. The good had to be the fact that Erin is curvy and not ashamed of her sexuality. Sex to her is something she enjoys and she does not out up with racist or sexist comments. Loved when she put guys in their place. Happy that she di...

    “I don't know where I'm going yet, but it's a big wide world, and I'm too young to give up and throw in the towel on my life.” After waiting over two and a half years, the next book in Contours of the Heart series was finally released. Y'all, I've been dying to get my hands on this book ever since Tammara Webber announced a release date. Not gonna lie, I really had my doubts about whether or not Webber would ever release this book, but once ...

    It has been more than two years since the last book in the Contours of the Heart series but Erin McIntyre is still a character I remember. Erin has finished University and has started working for her Dad at his construction/custom home company. Erin had plans for her future that didn’t include working for her father in a position created just for her. But Erin wants to prove herself to her father to the people around her including her new boss ...

    5 STARS!While I enjoyed Easy (book 1) and then Sweet (book 3) even more, Brave has now become my favorite and only 5* read in the Contours of the Heart series. On top of combining two of my favorite tropes within romance (slow burn and enemies-to-lovers,) Brave contained some of Webbers best writing. Erin can be remembered from her friendship with Jacqueline in Easy, but Isaac was new and absolutely fabulous. I loved his unreadable surly and broo...

    I love Easy (Contours of the Heart, #1), and have read it multiple times. Brave follows along years after, and I liked the glimpse into some familiar old characters. In the beginning, I wasn't sure what I thought. Erin going home to work for her dad, and the set up of not getting along with her boss. But the tension there was fun ... I loved seeing them try to resist each other, and the times they spent out of the office, seeing another side. All...

    For some odd reason my review was deleted??? Anyways I DNF at about maybe half way through mostly because it was very slow and didn’t keep my attention but more because it also pissed me off. There’s a scene in the book where Erin is surprised by where Isaac went to college because Wharton I think it was? Is a difficult school to get into much less graduate from. So she rightly wondered why he worked at her fathers company when he could be so...

    I loved Tammara Webber Easy so much. I ripped through all of her other books, and then I patiently waited two years for this book. In reading the afterward, I’m glad she took the time to write this book, to do the research for this book. To poke at the harder questions of this book. This book was Tammara Weber but more. It was everything I love about her style, but deeper, and more seamless. It didn’t require another book to explain the actio...

    Brave is book #4 in the Contours of the Heart series. It can be read as a standalone. Brave features Erin McIntyre who was a secondary character in Easy. Easy, (Contours of the Heart #1) is one of my favorite books. I have not read it in a while and could not remember Erin right away. Erin has flash backs that gave me the connection of her character.Erin has graduated college and has returned home. She begins working at her father’s company, Mc...

    There were some great moments in the book but I had to read through 3/4 of the book to get to it which... I’m still not understanding what that was about. The climax seemed rushed and completely out of nowhere. A good portion of the book was wasted on focusing on her ex that passed away. In another book this would have been fine but it just seemed like an unnecessary subplot that truly had next to nothing to do with the story at all. Honestly, ...

    Erin parecía tan segura de sí misma en Easy y Breakable, que el encontrarnos con ella sumida en una depresión un tanto cogida por los pelos (o eso me pareció a mí), resulta un tanto chocante.Isaac resulta ser bastante calmado y dueño de si mismo, a pesar de las circunstancias. Y precisamente por eso, lo sentí un personaje lejano, poco real.(view spoiler)[ Eché de menos el que Erin se enfrentase realmente a su abuelo y a la actitud racista...
