Reviews Athica Lane (Carpino, #3)

  • Stacey is Sassy
    It’s one of THOSE books…You know the books where you forgo eating and sleeping to just read one more chapter? Athica Lane is one of those book. One negative (POSITIVE) of my kindle is the ability to be able to read without having a light on. So when hubby does his usual - tuck me into bed before he goes back to work a bit more - routine, instead of going to sleep like a good girl, I turned that sucker back on and kept reading. Now I’ve fini...

    5 (my favorite book of 2015) starsFrom the opening paragraph to the very last page, I was immersed in the world of Cam and Paige. It was a wonderful world to be in, a world I didn't want to leave, and a world I will be revisiting many times. It takes a lot for me to add a book to my favorites shelf. It has to be something special. It has to be a book I will want to reread many times. I have to fall in love with the Hero. It has to be MY perfect b...

    4 StarsOverall Opinion: This was a cute, funny, and sexy read! I found it by looking in the lists on GR for books similar to Kristen Ashley. I am definitely a KA fan, but none of her books that I haven't read sounded all that appealing at the moment and I was in the mood for the family oriented, alpha H, and sweet h type story -- and I got it! I was happy I tried it, because it was just what I was looking for. That being said, it did have some th...

    There were so many things to like in Brynne Asher's Athica Lane that it pains me to give a low rating. Let's start with the good. This author was really, really funny. The first person pov of the h was hilarious. The H was not as interesting and certainly not as likable.When 26 year old caterer and blogger Paige Carpino looks at divorced father of two Cam "big brick wall" Montgomery, she swoons not at his hard pecs, his piercing blue eyes or his ...

    So when I found out about this book and that it was being released at the end of September and I wanted it now. I felt like Not ony did I WANT IT BUT I NEEDED IT AND I CRAVED IT. So the cheeky monkey that I am. I asked Ms. Asher if I could have a copy and she said So I got my happy dance on But I had to wait a whole week. I was in pain. PAIN! But then on Saturday I received it and COULD. NOT. PUT. IT. DOWN. Unfortunately RL got in the way....

    Paige Carpino was having an okay day until some asshole bumps into her and spills his soda all over her shirt and then doesn't even apologize. After telling the guy off, she leaves and goes about her day, doing her best to forget about the crazy hot jerk. She never expected to see him again, and definitely not at her sister's front door to pick up his two kids that Paige was watching. Cam Montgomery never though he would see the sassy woman that ...

    Arc offered in exchange for an honest reviewReview originally posted on Alleskelle Blogs. 4.5 STARS!When hot, single dad, Cam Montgomery gets a taste of Paige Carpino, his busy and complicated life takes on a whole new sweet and spicy flavor. But can the sweetness he craves withstand the bitterness of past heartache and current chaos swirling around them? One thing is for sure, if anyone can make Cam's lif...

    Oh god was this book long for nothing!!! Literally no reason. The story is actually really good but Holy crap the OW drama and her OM drama was just not working here.Lots of Angst loads of drama and the kids from the children of the corn! Creepy how perfect they are here. I have to say I have awesome kids and they don't always get along. That's just weird! Yikes! Ok but all that aside I enjoyed the book just I would not read it again. The sex was...
  • Ivy Deluca
    Full review posted on The Carpinos get better and better : I’ve enjoyed the earlier books in the series and seeing that Paige was the heroine for this book certainly drew me in. The Carpinos are a slightly crazy but fun, loving family who step up and protect their own and nowhere does that shine through as well as it does here. Ms. Asher has managed to grow as an author which each book and I’m excited...
  • Liv ☾
    ✱5 STARS!✱☾This book was actually insane! I was on the edge of my seat the entire time because of Brian and was completely tricked at the end, I'm still not over it.☾The story centers around a single dad named Cam, with two adorable children named Jordy and Cara. Cam is very closed off, "grumpy" as Paige would say, and dedicated to his children. He meets Paige when they bump into each other - literally and he spills Dr. Pepper on her whit...

    3.5 ✫ I liked this book. The author has a style of writing that reminds me very much of another author I usually enjoy reading. The speech patterns, the minutiae detail, the crazy almost insta-love, the crazy OTT Alphas, the crazy/weird OTT family/friends, the crazy OTT ex's....when you are in the mood for OTT...this stuff is awesome. I liked Paige way more in her own book than in the previous books as she always seemed like an immature, bratty...
  • Mindy Lou's Book Review
    So incredibly good! I loved that this author gave us quality time with this couple together. Very little was spent apart. I really enjoy seeing a couple be a couple and not have a push and pull for the whole story. Cam is going onto my favorite Alpha list. He's a single dad and that's just hot how good he was to his kids. He was dominant but not overly so. He took the care of Paige and the kids seriously. Paige is also one of my favorite heroines...

    This is my first book by Brynne Asher and I loved it!I haven't read first two books in the series, but I was able to connect all the pieces together since this can be read as a standalone. I highly recommend it!

    5 All Alpha Stars! Paige Carpino is the “baby” of the Carpino Clan. Paige is awesome, I loved her character, she’s fun, honest, outgoing, and has a beautiful heart. Drifting after college and working at the family law firm she finally finds her calling in catering and food blogging. Cam Montgomery is all A.L.P.H.A. He’s a former high school and college star football player who went on to become a high school math teacher, football coach, ...

    I beta read this one and freaking adored it. The Carpino Series is at the top of my favorite series list. I was excited to get Paige's story and Cam was the perfect grumpy alpha male. He definitely went overboard with his alphaness a couple of times but that's never bothered me, and he just made you forgive him in the end. I loved how Paige handled his kids, well all the kids really. She gets saint status just for her willingness to pitch in for ...
  • Jamie
    I really liked this easy steamy sweet read.. with big and loud families, kids, a teeny touch of angst, a super sweet H and total alpha/sometimes asshole H. The writing style was very Kristen Ashley-ish. If your a fan of KA you know how her H's are always growly and speak it very short sentences..... Cam is just the same. An wowza is he HAWT. Yep, this was a good one. I had a big smile on my face most of the time and I liked the little bit of susp...
  • Michelle [Helen Geek]
    10/01/2015 -- So, I read the blurb on this one and it appealed to me. I'd read some comments that this author is "very KA like." Not always a selling point. If she writes characters that I like, if she can tell a simple story with enough logical detail to keep me engaged, if she can incorporates children, pets, or "down to earth" people I can think about, I'm all in. However, if she writes a paragraph that is circular, says nothing and makes the ...

    3.5 StarsIt wasn't bad, but it wasn't amazing either. I loved book 2 but this was just okay for me. Personally, I didn't really like how high-handed the H was with the h. He bossed her around and whatnot which was supposed to be all "alpha" but it was just annoying. The biggest issue I had was the h being a virgin. She was 26 years old and a virgin for no other reason than she had not found anyone to give it to. I hate it when authors pair an exp...
  • Raine
    Wow!!I loved this last book of the series! I'm hoping it isn't the last book, but looking at the published date I'm afraid it is. I cried the most reading this book out of all the three in the series. I thought Cam was the perfect foil for Paige. And Cam's two kids, Jordy and Cara, were wonderful. We get to see many characters from the previous books like Rosa, the Carpino family along meeting Cam's family which rivals the Carpinos but...

    This series has got better and better. All of the little things that just prevented the first two in the series from being great were fixed in this, it was a bloody fab read that I struggled to put down.This is Paige' s story. She's the talented cook who has never had a serious boyfriend. She's suffering from a severe case of dadmiration (love it!) after swooning after her sister's neighbour, Cam and his kids. So we got a great love-hate, turning...

    Here’s Why I Loved This Book . . . I’m going to just come out and say it . . . Athica Lane, Book #3 is my favorite in the Carpino Series. I loved it! This series just gets better and better. That’s quite an accomplishment because it isn’t always the case when a writer reaches book number three. Where some authors fall short of their goal, Brynne Asher drop kicks this book over the goal posts for a huge win. (Hint – Hot Alpha Male is a f...
  • Suzanne (Lily)
    A good one :) I received a complimentary copy of this book from the Author in exchange for an honest review. Athica Lane is a good mix of romance, angst, suspense and drama. With an initial slow build to a solid story that kept me entertained and on edge. The intensity of the drama is kept isolated allowing the romance to remain the focus of the story and the kind of book that made you smile more often than not. Although part of a series, IMO At...

    I love a hot, growly alpha male and a spunky heroine that doesn't take his crap. And it got this with Paige and Cam. Throw in a nosey family and friends and a catch up with previous characters and I'm a happy girl.I love how Paige and Cam met, fireworks from minute one when she ends up wearing his drink and was un-hap-pee about that and makes it known. And of course hot, growly, grumpy Cam is so unapologetic! Yep, fireworks from the start.Paige i...

    1 chapter in and the Heroine (Paige) is starting to annoy me with all her "I'm so perfect" talk. Some examples so far:"I can do nothing but gaze down at my chest that would at least get meinto the finals of a wet t-shirt contest on spring break in college, if I was in college, which I’m not""Yep, I would totally make it to the finals, if not place in the top three""I’m covered in dark sticky fountain drink while trying to cover up my wet-t-sh...
