    I'm a sucker for 2nd chance romances but I'm really picky with them. Like Goldilocks, they have to be just right (for me) or they tank tragically. No Place Like You sadly, tanked for me. It had a slow start, the characters never really engaged me and the romance was too subtle for me. I don't mind slow burn but there needs to be a spark . It might be instant and intense or it might be tame and blossoming but give me something to build on. I felt...

    Thanks to NetGalley and to St. Martin’s Press for providing me an ARC copy of this novel that I freely chose to review.Although I am not a big reader of romance, this novel is an example of what I think is a subgenre of it, the romance that takes place in the world of music and musicians. The setting of the novel is a small imaginary American island called Cloud Bay, off the coast of California, best known for a music festival and for being hom...

So when Zach Harper returns with plans to launch his own solo career, Leah is certain that she is the producer he needs to make him a huge success in his own right.

For this, he would enjoy the sabbatical year taken by his band.Getting back to the island that brings him so many painful memories may be the beginning he needs to make peace with the past and delineate what he wants for his future. And one of ...
  • Heather
    This is the third book in the Cloud Bay series but it can very easily be read as a stand-alone novel. Having read the other books in the series, I was expecting Zach to be a complete jerk. While he did have his moments, overall he was a rather likeable guy. Leah has always had a crush on Zach so when he comes home for a short stay, she proposes a no-strings fling for whatever time he is home for. But what always happens during these flings happen...
  • Tracy- OMGReads
    A sweet, slow burning second chance, No Place Like You was an interesting read. It is the third book of a series, but can be read perfectly as a standalone. Zach and Leah had one night together, and then he took off for stardom. He returns home to a newly divorced Leah, and still a heaping if chemistry between the two. I had a bit of trouble falling in love with Zach. He felt very pushy at times, but then would melt your heart. Leah was a determi...

A small island brought to the world’s attention by a rock group that settled there and created a venue for the annual rock festival “Cloud Fest”.

    No Place Like You-3rd Book in the Cloud Bay Series by Emma Douglas- Like this series a lot. When Zack comes home to Cloud Bay he didn’t know what to expect from his family. He wasn’t expecting a big welcome home, because he left them high and dry not too long ago for the big event in town. Seeing Leah again he just wasn’t prepared. He walked away a long time ago from her and his family. Leah hasn’t forgotten Zach Harper. Now he’s back h...

    If you like series books read in order, you'll want to go back and read the prior two books in this series. If you just like a good rock star reunited with the woman who used to be the girl he left behind story, this is a great place to start. Zach and Leah both carry emotional baggage and hide behind the professional images they have built over the years since they parted. They agree to a no-strings fling, but we all know how that doesn't work o...

I haven’t read the previous romances in the series and didn’t have a problem following along with the various characters.No Place Like You is a small-town reunion romance. Musician Zach Harper and Leah Santelli got together on her eighteenth birthday when she propositioned him, then he left. Fresh from a divorce, Leah sees complications when she realizes Zach has returned, but she also sees an o...

    This is going to be a hard review to write. I almost gave up several times (and read four other books after I started this one), and gave myself until the 50 percent mark to get into the story. And it was right at that point in the book things finally picked up and held my attention.A quick synopsis: Zach is the son of a famous rock star, who is on his way to becoming just as famous as his father. However, the band he’s been a part of for the p...

    Read December 2017This is the third book in the Cloud Bay series about the Harper family but can be read as a standalone, however better enjoyment would be to read the series in order. This is Zach’s story. Zach Harper is back in Cloud Bay to refocus his musical career after his band broke up when the lead singer quit. Now looking to record a solo album he heads back to where he can think clearly and find new inspiration. He has another reason ...

    Lucky for me, St. Martin's included me on the release of this book by Emma Douglas, No Place Like You.  Because I had read Book 1, Need You Now, and Book 2, A Season Of You, I knew I wasn't going to miss Book 3!  While you can read No Place Like You as a standalone, since I already knew the background, I'm betting it would be a better read all the way around if you would read them in order.  Just my opinion.... but read on......In No Place Li...

    I fell in love with this crazy, loving and very real family – the Harper’s. They are children of a legendary rock star and this has shaped the way they think, feel and act. This is very much true for Zach Harper. He is an emotional person but is not very good at showing those emotions. While he has tried his hardest to run from his Dad’s legacy and not be like his Father, he is finding himself more and more like him. This tends to scare him...

    I have enjoyed this series and have been looking forward to Zach's story. For some reason I had a disconnect with Mina's story but Zach's was spot on. Zach is the only son of rock legend Grey Harper and while that might seem awesome to most Zach has had a hard time finding his own place outside Backlight's shadow. Having fled the island village of Cloud Bay to make a name for himself Zach leaves behind friends and family is his wake that only wan...

  • Linda Walters
    I have to say that the story does kind of start off slow. I know it does take time to develop the characters and set up the story and it does do that. But for quite a while it seems set at a slower pace. I guess that is some of the reason for my giving it a lower rating. It just didn't draw me in as much as I would have liked. I did give it 3.5 Stars on Amazon (kind of my own take on their ratings.The emotions of the main characters are pretty we...
