  • Eve (Between The Bookends)
    I honestly have little to say about this book because nothing much really happened. They meet. They date. They have sex. They fall in love. They meet the parents. His Mom is a bitch for five minutes. The end. Throw in an underdeveloped mystery plot with a baddie you could see from a mile away, and two cute pets, and you basically have the entire plot. I mean, it was OK. It was sweet, but my tastes have changed as of late and I need a li...
  • Mindy Lou's Book Review
    I did a re-read with the audiobook and the narrator was fantastic! I loved this just as much as I did the first time I read it. This was filled with so much sugary goodness. It's low angst, funny with a protective alpha and a sweet heroine that you can't help but love. This is my favorite type of a light read. It's stress free but still delivers what I want in a book. Tyler is a take charge alpha who knows what he wants and he wants Leah. Leah is...

    Great start to a new series!I really enjoyed this sweet, heartfelt book that made me smile so big! Leah was so bright and cheerful, i couldn’t help but adore her (and her best friend Cassie). And Tyler…Sigh…He was delicious and simply perfect and just made for Leah. Their chemistry was undeniable and the steam was through the roof. "You look amazing. You’re always beautiful and always have a way of stopping my breath and giving it back to...

    This was such a fun and sweet read and with all the angst I have been reading lately, this was just what the doctor ordered. Tyler and Leah were extremely funny and cute together...and did I mention HOT, they were definitely HOT. Tyler was everything one would look for in a book boyfriend... all delicious alpha goodness !! Now I am gonna be honest here and say that I normally like a bit more angst in my story and a bit less sugary goodness, but i...

    NOW LIVE!Amazon US * Amazon UK Audio "re-read" 12/14/19 Catching Him is full of Aurora Rose Reynolds' usual sweetness and was a fun book to read. It was easy in that it didn't have a ton of drama or angst that overshadowed the romance between Leah and Tyler, and I really enjoyed that. There was some mystery thrown in with an unknown person coming after our main characters, but honestly I could have done without that. It didn't add anything to the...

    I've read two Aurora Rose Reynolds books before this one and have yet to understand the hype of the author. This one looked like it was going to be a cute, fun romance, so I decided to give the author one final chance. Everyone in Emerson's life wants her to settle down, but she hasn't found the right man yet. But when her cat breaks into her neighbor's house and she comes face to face with the hot new neighbor, Emerson is smitten. Tyler takes an...

    Everything was going great. The H is the h’s new neighbor. It was cute first meet. And when her dinner burns while she goes off after her cat, the H takes her to eat out. I was excited for their dinner but all the scoop we get about the dinner is while the h is thinking about it the next day. No live details. And then the next day she has a date with a guy who was her ex, which she don’t want to go but it was pre planned mostly by her mother ...

    This book feels like home! I was in desperate need of a story that I could just chill with, assured I’d get all the alpha goodness I love as well a tiny touch of drama and all the swoony-ness I desire. I found it here.The meeting between Tyler and Leah was hilarious, fun, cute and a bit sexy considering what Leah was not wearing. I love when a cute meet leads to a bit of embarrassment on the heroine’s part and that’s exactly what happens. B...

    This was one of THE most boring books I have ever read in my life. Wtf was this? Where was the plot? The chemistry? The intrigue?Just bland and boring, really nothing else to say
  • Carmen Rae
    Aurora Rose Reynolds is an auto one click insta read author. She writes the best romance. Every single one of her books has everything I need to make the book unputdownable. You have a feisty, intelligent heroine; an over the top, growling, protective alpha; no relationship angst or drama; and enough going on to keep the book interesting. I just love her writing so much.So this book was everything I could have expected. Leah was an awesome leadin...

    4.5 starsI'm a huge fan of Aurora Rose Reynolds and the stories she writes. While Catching Him was sealed up nicely for Leah and Tyler, I smiled and laughed throughout their story. Their meet cute was enough to keep me reading. Leah has a sweet disposition but I also found her to be a very naive. The strong bonds she has with family and friends also made her extremely likeable. That being said she isn't afraid to use her voice when needed. Her gr...

    [3/5] I don’t know what I was expecting but I’m kinda underwhelmed. Unfortunately, this just wasn’t for me. There’s nothing wrong with the story, the characters are great and the plot was decent. It was just pretty average for me. There wasn’t anything necessarily special that stood out and I didn’t feel super connected with the book which is why it took me so long to get though it. I’m sure heaps of others would adore this but I’...
  • Hannah
    This was super cute. The two main characters actually talked to each other instead of assuming what the other is thinking - which is always a plus in my eyes. Adding the fact that they are super into each other and cutely so, a focus on family, and two really brilliant pets, this was really lovely. I wasn't as much into the B-plot of them being victims of arson and burglary but it didn't overshadow the main storyline.Content warning: Arson, Burgl...
  • Kayla Brunson
    As usual, I enjoyed this one. ARR is one of my go to romance authors. I always know that I’ll get an alpha romance and low angst. Two of my favorite things in a romance novel. I did enjoy Leah and Tyler’s romance. It was sweet and really made me smile. I love that Tyler made sure that Leah got to know him before he made his move. Leah wanted someone that showed her that they were interested and wasn’t playing games. Well, that’s exactly w...

    3 FLUFFY STARS - I wanted something with more Bite The hero in this – Tyler Duncan is a take charge alpha and the heroine Leah Emerson – sweet and kind. Tired of the type of mean she has found herself dating, she is now looking for a man who knows what he wants.I really wish the author had provided dual POV from the get go, we don’t get Tyler’s POV until the 57% mark.This little read is super low angst, and was an easy and light read, but...
  • Tijuana *Book Twins Reviews*
    Leah and Tyler are too stinking cute! The story is super sweet, fun, and low on angst. If you’re looking for a quick fun read that’s hot and sweet, I highly recommend this book from one of my favorite authors. What I Enjoyed Most:The beginning was funny and cute. Super cute pets lead to a chance meeting between these two lovebirds. I particularly loved their pets. If only my fur baby was as obedient as Bruce. LOLEvery woman wants a man like T...

    Aurora Rose Reynolds has done it again! She continues to deliver feel good romances that leave you swooning and drooling over her sexy alpha men. My favorite series by her has been and will always be The Until series and Catching Him has the elements I love from The Until Series making it an ultimate home run in my opinion. A Must Read for her fans!
  • Jennifer
    ARC received for reviewAt first I wasn't sure if I was going to like this. It seemed like Tyler didn't want to move out of the friend zone. In the end, it was a really sweet romance with a nasty ex and potential nasty mother-in-law. Great epilogue. Now does her bestie get a HEA with the hot detective?
  • Jemima jamir aka Sentranced Jem
    This is what happens when you have high expectations... you either soar with flying colours or fall flat.Catching Him fell flat.The amount of times I had to come back to finishing this book was a chore.The story was the most mundane boring yawn. Everything was so...hmm... predictable?
  • Alecia (The Staircase Reader)
    Aurora Rose Reynolds has an unbelievably fast way of always sweeping me off my feet. I can lie and tell you I have no idea why, but the truth always lies within her alpha males. These men are hot, sweet, and a tad bit protective. They’re everything that dirty dreams are made of and Tyler just surpassed them all!About Catching Him:Catching Him is the first book in the How To Catch An Alpha series by Aurora Rose Reynolds.

    It is a problem when you think Bruce the dog and Mouse the cat are more charming than the main characters in the book. Tyler is a douche bag who cannot string more than two sentences together without dropping f-bombs on every single page. I got so tired of all his swearing ( at least come up with different swear words, geez) that by the end I was the one who did not give a single f*** about the rest of the book.
  • Missy's Book World
    Great start to the series. Can't wait for the next book. You can never go wrong with a Aurora Rose Reynolds book they are always great.
  • MamaBear2019
    One of my biggest pet peeves is when someone needs to bring up someone's dating past!! UGH!!! Especially when it is a family member. But Tyler shut it down. I love when the H sees the h and he knows exactly what he wants and is willing to put in the time. I loved this couple and their relationship and the cute pets! I hope to get a story of her Best Friend and his sister.
  • Maria...
    This was a nice reading! I think the author did a great job and didn't leave unanswered questions or situations that didn't make sense! Which I liked it a lot and it was a great change since the last books from her left me with a mehhh feeling. The book had the usual recipe that this author use for her other books as well. But it was a sweet story!
  • Nicolette (FallingOverBooks)
    ARC received thanks to publisher & Netgalley.pretty cute but it felt like something the author has already written.
  • Paula
    I can't believe I'm saying this but I wanted more drama, wait, scratch that, I wanted some drama. It went too smoothly.
