Managed (VIP, #2) by Kristen Callihan

Managed (VIP, #2)

It started off as a battle of wits. Me: the ordinary girl with a big mouth against Him: the sexy bastard with a big...ego.I thought I’d hit the jackpot when I was upgraded to first class on my flight to London.That is until HE sat next to me. Gabriel Scott: handsome as sin, cold as ice. Nothing and no one gets to him. Ever. He’s a legend in his own right, the manager of the biggest rock band in the world, and an arrogant ass who looks down hi...

    I needed a day or two to think on my rating. Don’t get me wrong, I loved this book. I just wasn’t sure if it was I had a really good time reading this or I loved this so much that I’ll never forget it kind of read.The writingOne thing's for sure, Kristen Callihan can write no wrong. I’m in awe of her ability to write so effortlessly. Her words, sentences and dialogues just flow naturally, the way good writing should. Her ability to evoke ...

    The five stars are for, well:1. Each and every character in this breathtaking book2. Sophie Darling aka "Chatty Girl", and Gabriel Scott aka "Sunshine". The best Book Couple of 2016!3. The laughter. Oh Gosh, the laughter...4. Kristen C, for creating Sophie, who has to be one of the funniest and most lovable female characters of all time. 5. The Rock Stars. Come on, I mean who writes Rock Stars as secondary characters? Only KC, and she totally mad...

    *****FIVE STARS*****{ARC Generously Provided by Author}I didn’t have a home until she came into my life. She gave me one without hesitation as if she’s been waiting for me all this time, knowing I was meant to be hers. I touch her cheek just to remind myself she’s real. Yet again I am left in awe of the writing talents of Kristen Callihan. I don’t think there has been a book that I’ve read of hers that I haven’t loved. MANAGED was one...

    He isn't cold or unfeeling. He's just hiding. I want that unleashed - all that strength and simmering emotion he holds beneath the surface. ➦Okay. So. I'm delighted to read a story about a hot arrogant man in a suit any day. Gabriel here also has an accent so... naturally, le #swoon.➦This series revolves around the band Kill John and it's members. Gabriel is one of the guys but he isn't a musician - he's the band manager. And although he thi...

    ****4.5 STARS****Let us first talk about sexy ass Gabriel for a moment please….This man is beautiful, just fucking beautiful. It’s really not fair if you think about it. He has the sexist accent (as far as us American think).I’m a sucker for a British accent – I even my my husband read some of Gabriel sentences so I could listen to his words come out of another Brit’s mouth. I’m sure he wants a divorce now!!!But here is the thing, Gab...

    *****5 Stars***** “I wasn’t prepared to need you this much. I don’t know who I am anymore if you aren’t with me.” One word springs to mind when I think about this book and that is AWESOME! The dialogue in the book is quick witted, the characters have a charm about them and their banter was superb. This was an incredibly hilarious read and I was constantly laughing out loud (and I mean that, literally). After falling madly in love with t...

    5 Chatty Girl's Sunshine StarsReview @ Vanilla & Spice BooksGabriel "Scottie" Scott is "Kill John's" band manager. He is the person who keeps things in order. His firm control over all aspects of his friends' musical carrier is also symbolic for the control he has over his emotions. Guarding his heart has become second nature to Gabriel and the walls he has built around it are impenetrable. It is not that he doesn't feel but admitting is what giv...

    This book was absolutely delicious. Delicious!I FLOVED this story. Gabriel Scott was so damn yummy in his beautiful suits and cufflinks. Sophie Darling was such a fun character and the perfect balance to Gabriel's very structured persona. I just adored them together. The sexual tension between the two of them was absolutely palpable and I craved it! The touch of angst toward the end seemed a bit ridiculous, but I don't shy away from angst in a bo...

    4.5 Stars1st things first. Gabriel Scott is a GOD and I need him to be real a person so I can claim him and smother his stuck up, snooty, sexy self in my love.I’ve always adored Kristen Callihan’s writing and Managed was no exception. This book focuses on Gabriel “Scottie” Scott, manager of the band Kill John (whose lead singer is the hero from Idol – VIP Book #1 ) and Sophie Darling, who was one of the most sweetest, sassy, and outsp...

    5++++++++++++++++++++++ "You're my warmth" starsGoodreads should have a special feature for this kind of books. The "there are not enough stars in the sky to rate this book" feature. That's the only rating that would do this novel justice.It was so, so, so good. Tugged at all the right strings. I knew I'd love Gabriel from book 1 and not just because of his resemblance to mr. God Among Humans himself. His character was outstanding, so round and l...

    …I think I started Managed with rose coloured glasses on.***4.5 Stars***After reading Managed, I’m trying to imagine how I would react if David Gandy sat beside me on a flight to London. OH MY LORDY!! Besides major heart failure (and possibly some drooling), I can honestly say that I would probably pretend to be asleep through the whole flight. See, even though I think Mr Gandy is ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS, I know there is NO WAY IN HELL I’d have...

    5+ stars!Review at Of Pens and Pages.Sophie Darling is on a flight to London for a job interview, and it seems luck is going her way when she gets upgraded to first class. She also gets seated next to someone who could be on the cover of GQ. Handsome, English, but standoffish, Gabriel "Scottie" Scott, the manager of one of the biggest bands in contemporary music, finds himself seated next to a bubbly and vivacious blonde on a seven-hour flight.

    How do you know that you feel relaxed-happy with someone? How can you tell that you have this rare feeling of safeness?1. When you sleep with her with complete abandonment, oblivious about what is happening to the outside world.2. When you eat from her plate like it is the most natural thing. 3. When you feed her, because you are worried about her and you want her to feel good.Gabriel Scot does not like socializing, but then he meets Sophie who i...

    It is not often that a heroine over shadows a hero in a book and becomes the character I liked the most. But Sophie was such an amazing character that I honestly still would have loved this book even if Gabriel wasn't in it. Now don't get me wrong, Gabriel was still a great character and I loved him. Yet it was Sophie that took me from liking this book and made me love it. She was fun and colorful and had me smiling through the majority of this r...

    3.5 StarsOverall Opinion: I feel like this deja vu for me in regards to how I felt about the first book, Idol. I LOVED the first part of this book! I loved the witty banter, the chemistry, the grumpy hot H and the awkward funny h! I was on my way to having a 5 star read! Then, sadly, it fizzed out. I got antsy about waiting for them to actually get together. While I loved their friendship and their banter, I just wanted them to get it on ;)! It ...

    Girls, if you don't have a Gabriel Scott please put up an add and look for one!This is my second Kristen Callihan book and I think I found a new favorite. After reading Killian's story everybody told me that Gabriel's will be so much better, with more drama, steamier scenes and a more delicious package. Well thank you so much, everyone was right!!! Gabriel and Sophie meet on a plane, during one hell of a bumpy ride. Sophie seat is changed to VIP,...

    OMG I laughed so hard!! I laughed so many times, in so many ways, and for so many really fantastic reasons. My fave scenes took place on the plane early in the book. Those scenes were off-the-charts hilarious to me. When Gabriel and Sophie meet on that plane ride... it just really set the tone for their relationship and this story. I really just enjoyed every minute of this book!I didn't have a favorite character because both mains were awesome. ...

    4.5 Sunshine Stars****soooooo ahhh Scottie... I love Kristen callihans books they always great reads for me, I get addicted to her words, high on the chemistry between the characters, and then add that with a music band you get fireworks. I just love this series so much. Plus Scottie Scottie, who doesn't just love a broken hero??!! I remembered Scottie back in Idol as the cold hearted, tough manager of Kill John yet I kind of wanted to read him ...

    3 HERO IS STIFF SHIRT STARS First I will say Yay I loved the heroine. Her name is Sophie Darling and she is a complete darling and I loved her. She is sassy, funny, and more than capable of giving as good as she gets. She is very sexually experienced and makes no apologies for that. “I have sworn off hookups, as I’ve concluded they’re bad for my mental health. I’ve dealt with too many dick biscuits to continue with casual sex”She made m...

    I love this series. All characters are to fall in love with! Great story, damaged hero, smooth-tongued and funny heroine. What's not to love? Probably just the wait for the next book!About the plot: It started with a flight from hell. Sophie Darling is flying to London for a job interview with a small amount of information for who she will be working. She is a photographer and works in social media. When she gets upgraded to first class, couldn't...

    ☆☆☆☆4 Chatty Girl Stars☆☆☆☆ Gabriel Scott and Sophie Darling were not your ordinary couple. Their banter was foreplay, the attraction that they had for one another was palpable, and when these two got together? It was freakin HAWT. But make no mistake, Gabriel was not the easiest person to be around and managing one of the biggest rock bands in the world came with a lot of responsibility and a reputation for him being known as a ...

    Oh wow!! I just finished up Gabriel and Sophie's story, and I LOVED it!! Maybe I was in the right kind of mood for this; but I literally don't have any complaints about this one. Honestly, this is a story I could read over and over again!! I fell in love with everything about these two! Their banter was hilarious, and the build up to their sex was absolutely divine!! By the time they finally did the deed, I was on the edge of my seat drooling!! H...

    :::4.5 Stars:::I felt like Kristen Callihan gave me everything I wanted in a hero. That asshole type attitude, with that subtle hint of a dangerous undertone, handsome as sin, polished hero that took my breath away! Call me shallow, but yes I Sher am a sucker for the British accent! Yep #noshame! Gabriel Scott is simply breathtaking. He's not one to mess with. His standoffish attitude and his distant and cold demeanor makes even the hardest edge ...

    “I am a cold man.” Frigid indeed. Gabriel “Scottie” Scott, manager of the infamous rock band Kill John, is known for his controlling nature and icy demeanor. In “Idol”, book one of the VIP series, he did not give me the warm and fuzzy ‘oh so easy to fall in love with’ feeling. Regardless, his detached persona totally fascinated me. When “Managed” popped up on my kindle, I could not wait to jump into this story to see firstly...

That feeling when you remember the book and all you can do is smile so wide and if only my face could be transformed to any emojis then mine would be a BIG LIKE and the a smiling face with heart shaped eyes. And not just only that, MANAGED ruined my reading time table. I c...
