Roses For Sophie Reviews
Oh wow. This book really touched me. I'm not sure how to describe it because it was tender and moving, but there was some real passionate heat and definitely humour that made me laugh. For me it had it all - laughter and tears and deep emotion. Also even though the couple were super wealthy, they were believable. I'm really sorry I'm finished this book because I enjoyed it so much.
This is another great read sensual and emotional as Sophie Hamilton mining heiress comes to terms with loving someone who does not love her oh they have a lot in going for them trust respect passion because billionaire Logan Jackson does not love and when he needs a wife to make it look good for a child custody case and Sophie is trying desperately to make her grandfather happy fate steps in and these two pair up and this begins a very sensual but rocky path to a beautiful HEA this one will have you smiling and needing tissues loved it .
Yes! Fantastic read. I read this hot on the heels of Echoes of the Heart - the latter which I purchased for 99c from Amazon. The stories are very different, as are the characters and that in itself is refreshing. In this story (a stand alone yet follow up of Sophie who was a character from Echoes of the Heart) I loved the sensitivity of the hero, Logan, who was just gorgeous and very alpha but still sensitive to Sophie's needs. Too often, the alpha males are too caustic or arrogant. (Jake from Echoes of the Heart bordered on that description for me initially even though he redeemed himself nicely and early on in the story). Logan - Sophie's hero - has arrogance but in a likeable larrikan sort of way. (I could definitely fall for him even without his millions :) )Sophie was strong too and I loved the dialogue between them. Sometimes it made me laugh, other times it was so deep it was just beautiful. Loved it loved it loved it!!! I read a lot of Presents books and although this author isn't writing for Presents, she definitely has that style of voice - especially with the strong alpha heroes and the billionaire style.I've decided that my top three authors in contemporary romance with the presents flavour are Montgomery, Marinelli and Morey! The Ms have it ladies! The reason I would give Montgomery the slight edge is that her stories are a little longer than the normal "Presents" books and seem to have twists and I enjoy that. The twist in Roses for Sophie came early on, and I didn't see it coming straight away.
I really enjoyed Roses for Sophie. The chemistry was immediate between Logan and Sophie, but entirely believable. One thing I really loved was that they were both from the same social sphere, and of relatively similar wealth, so there was no real power imbalance. I liked that they both understood what each other's world was like. Sophie's fears and vulnerabilities showed me that even the ones we think shouldn't have anything to worry about are just like the rest of us. I am very much a fan of the dark, damaged billionaire, but I do have to say I really enjoyed that Logan wasn't one of the moody bunch.Despite the relative speed with which their romance developed, I understood these two and it made sense to me that they would fall in love like that.The glimpses of Sydney and the gorgeous Hunter Valley added something special to the story. I will have to go back and read Jake and Amanda's story now. Note: The publisher provided me with an Advance Reader Copy of this title via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Australian playboy billionaire Logan Jackson is needs a wife fast. He has to change his playboy image. Logan's best friends dies and he is fighting for custody for their daughter. Logan doesn't view marriage in a good light. A marriage of convenience is the right solution. As fate steps in. Logan knows he wants Sophie as his wife. Sophie Hamilton has to prove that she can be the general manager of her grandfather's mining company. Her grandfather's match matching is getting in the way. She has to show her grandfather that she is in a relationship therefore, she will be fine without a marriage. This book was a charming and smoking hot story. I really like this book. I would love to read more on this story. I received a complimentary copy from the publisher thru NetGalley for an honest review.
What a great book. It starts with the 'really?" premise of two mining superstars (a billionaire and a billionaire-in-waiting) needing to marry, fast. But this *is* romantic fantasy and Alyssa J. Montgomery makes it work... The 'really?' becomes a 'wow' so you're carried away in the unfolding story. The hot romance includes the lovely language of flowers - in this case, roses - a beautiful touch. I love Alyssa J. Montgomery's books - they are rich in emotion, conflict and passion. When you finish, you feel like you're 'really' gotten your teeth into things. Roses for Sophie is terrific. Thanks, Alyssa!
This women can write.I enjoyed Roses For Sophie. I enjoyed this authors story-telling. She just has a way of capturing you with the way she tells her story. Its easy to the mind, its captivating. You can sense that Aussie Western flare. I also enjoy a read when it involves a confidant cocky male fighting for a sassy sophisticated heroine. It had just the right amounts of heart, soul and romance....I wont go into details, but i truly enjoyed the story and this authors writing style!I would like to thank the publisher at Netgalley for kindly providing the Arc in exchange for an honest review.
Roses for Sophie is one sexy read! Montgomery's characters are wounded and seeking what has always eluded them, love. Daringly they face obstacles, the kind money can not solve. Sophie takes center stage in her own love story, matched by Logan's fierce determination to have her. Roses for Sophie is the perfect beach read this summer. I was a fan of Echoes of the Heart and hope to see more in the series.
Really enjoyed this series and these characters. Enjoyed following the characters through the three books and really enjoyed this last one. The characters were warm and funny and the reader roots for all of them. Highly recommend all three books.
Australian billionaire and mining magnate Logan Jackson needs a wife. He’s about to be embroiled in a bitter custody battle, trying to win custody of the young daughter of his closest friend. Logan has a bit of a playboy past and he knows that he’s more than able to take care of Charlotte financially. What he needs to prove is that he has a stable and loving home life for her as well, with a woman who can give all the appearance of being a supportive wife and mother figure.Sophie Hamilton needs a fiance. Her beloved grandfather, who raised her after her own parents were killed in an accident, is about to make a decision on who he will hand control of the family mining company to: her or her cousin Felix. Sophie has been determined that it should be her for years. But her grandfather also wants to see her married and happy, with something else in her life other than work.Logan and Sophie are both looking for something temporary – an image to project in order to placate or make someone else happy. But when they meet by chance – a case of mistaken identity – the sparks fly between them. Sophie has been married before, to someone she cared about but didn’t love and swore she’d never marry again unless it was for real. Logan doesn’t really believe in love but thinks you can make a marriage work with other things, such as friendship, trust, sexual desire. Logan and Sophie have common goals but the end-game they see is different. After they both get what they want, will they go their separate ways or choose to stay together and build what they have for real?Roses For Sophie can be read stand alone but also follows on in a way from Montgomery’s previous novel, Echoes of the Heart, which focuses on Sophie’s ex-husband. I haven’t read that but I assume that Sophie features in it in some way, just as her ex-husband appears briefly in this novel. I don’t really think I lacked for not having read it and I think this is more than capable of standing alone.I have to admit, I found Logan really annoying and pushy at first until the circumstances of their meeting became more clear. From then on I actually quite liked him as a character and I appreciated what he was trying to do. His friend and his wife had been killed in an accident and they’d expressed their wishes to Logan that he take custody of their only daughter should something ever happen to them. What little family they do have is untrustworthy and Charlotte is currently in the care of her grandmother, who is fighting Logan for permanent custody, mostly to get at the wealth Charlotte has inherited. Logan knows that not only can he take care of her financial inheritance and grow it, rather than waste it, but he can also provide the little girl with a better home life. His sister has made him see however, that a wife would definitely help his case. Sophie on the other hand, doesn’t need a husband so much as a lover who looks like becoming a husband, in the eyes of her grandfather. He wants to see her settled and happy in her personal life as well as her career and Sophie knows that she doesn’t have time to wait until she meets the elusive one. She needs to make her grandfather think that she’s found that person. Sophie is unprepared for the whirlwind that is her grandfather though and I think the old bloke outsmarts her pretty good.I liked Logan and Sophie together but somehow this story managed to feel rushed even as their conflict felt a bit drawn out. Sophie wanted proper love, Logan thinks you can have a marriage without it, despite it already being pretty obvious that they are both in love. They also don’t know each other very long either and when Sophie is told some things by her no-good cousin, she jumps to some pretty weird conclusions, assuming Logan was marrying her for her grandfather’s company despite the fact Logan could buy and sell it many times probably with his own wealth. Logan does do a stupid thing which doesn’t really help make him look innocent in his motives either but Sophie’s reaction is a bit overly dramatic. I think a lot of it is supposed to be tied up in a heartbreak she experienced when she was young but that’s only briefly explained and I didn’t really get the feeling it should still play such an important role in her life. It was definitely time to ‘let it go’.Forced or arranged marriage is actually one of my favourite romantic tropes and I enjoyed this although I think I’d have liked it more if they’d actually had to spend some time being married first. I think that might have taken the edge off the rushed feeling and also given them more time to actually fall in love and so Sophie’s reaction wouldn’t have felt so over the top. I expected Charlotte to actually play a larger role in the story as well, given she was Logan’s primary motivation for finding a wife but instead she really only appears in a scene or two almost at the end of the book, so you don’t really get to see how Logan copes with taking custody of a small child either which was something I thought would’ve been interesting. All in all this was a quick and pleasant read and I think I might go and track down Echoes of the Heart now which, from the glimpse I got of the couple in this book, sounds as though it might be fun.
