    1. Sometimes love is sweeter the second time around. I'm thrilled how my second short story of the day turned out to be a success, especially since I struggled to connect with the previous story I'd read earlier.This was my first time picking up anything by Rachel Gibson and I'm happy to report that it was a positive experience. I'm not sure why I hadn't tried her before, but I think I might have been under the impression that I'd be reading bargain-priced-grocery-store-style-basic contemporary rom [...]


    2. 2.5 Stars This is not something I have come to expect from RG. It was a nice little story but I felt no connection/tension between H/h and there really isn't any romance - instead of reading their interaction over the week they got together we are just told that time of them seeing each other every day has gone by! We got a beginning, we got an end (of sorts!) but where was the middle??


    3. Blue By You is a second chance romance, and wonderful story with so much passion packed into just 144 pages. It's my first experience with Rachel Gibson's writing, and it most certainly will not be my last!ARC provided by Avon Books in exchange for an honest review.

    5. You take what you get and you don’t throw a fit! But I wanted to because this was only a short 100 page novella!! Sweet and sexy romance with some sizzle in a second chance at love (22 years have passed since the h/h, who are 40 & 43, have seen each other). The characters and their story drew me in with a setting in the deep south and I think there could easily have been a full novel. A bit disappointed that it's not. However, this is the introduction to a new series by Rachel Gibson.



    6. Firstly I think the product description is a bit misleading. Blue and Kasper didn't have a 'fiery teenage love affair' they had a one night stand when she was 18 and he was 21. I didn't get the impression Blue had tried to 'block him from her mind' and that she still had feelings for him because the one night stand had taken place 22 years ago!I have always been a fan of Rachel Gibson but her last few books have been disappointing. She did a similar thing last year, release a novella before her [...]


    7. Blue by You is the sweet contemporary love story. You have a hot Marine, Kasper in it. What can go wrong? Rachel Gibson is one of my favorite authors and I saw this one I was so excited! Kasper and Blue had one night stand during their teenage years and now after 22 years, they meet again! Only thing, I felt their journey together was rushed and wished their family history was shorted in order to give Kasper and Blue a nice slow paced relationship! "I know you said you're a grown woman, but do y [...]


    8. I loved these characters. Blue and Kasper are both funny and smart-mouthed and believably Southern, and the chemistry between them sizzles. I loved that they are both over forty and that, although they have lived full lives, they have not forgotten their brief time together. In fact, I love Blue and Kasper and their story so much that I think they deserve more than five chapters. I want them to have their HEA, but this HEA happens too quickly for me to believe in it.For readers who have never re [...]


    9. Started good and I liked the characters. Unfortunately, it was too short to develop the story. The beginning held my interest and then the wrap up/ending. The part where the relationship should have been fleshed out and developed was missing. 2.5 stars.


    10. A short story of love by an author I have not had the pleasure of reading. Instantly I was transported back to my roots. From the sound of a screen door closing, to the thick air the afternoon heat brings, I was transported to another part of this great earth. One of the best parts in my mind the deep south.The slang was a welcome reminder to me: water headed babies, catawampus, and sugar mouth slang I had long forgotten that brought a smile. Blue and Kasper reunite and within the story transpor [...]


    11. The premise of Blue By You roped me in – lovers reunited, family mansion, set in a (slightly) unusual setting for contemporary romance. Plus, Rachel Gibson is typically fabulous. But…Blue was too short. There was a good bit of time given in the book to the flashbacks, and in a short story, it gave even less time for them to discover each other as adults. Their romance happened so quickly – I would have loved to see a bit more tension, perhaps some additional ‘conflict’ that would have [...]


    12. Blue by You an eBook novella by Rachel Gibson was released this week. I read this book in one sitting and while I love RG's writing, I have trouble with her novellas. She does such a beautiful job with her characterizations and storytelling that she pulls you in and you want MORE, way more than 100 pages. I loved these characters, but would have been over the moon if this story was expanded into a full length book. I would buy it guaranteed.This story centers around Kasper and Blue two descendan [...]


    13. 3.5/5 starsBlue By You was an enjoyable quick little read filled with passion and steamy goodness! I'm normally not a fan of novellas, just because I don't feel there's enough room for ample buildup and development between characters. However, Blue By You ended up working as the two MC's were not meeting for the first time around in the present. Kasper and Blue had actually met each other as teens and were attracted to each other then. Blue has never quite been able to forget the one night she s [...]


    14. Blue By You by Rachel GibsonPublication Date: September 3, 2013Reviewed by: Reading In Pajamas/ DawnRated: 3 StarsREVIEW:Not one of my favorite Rachel Gibson books. As a novella the book was fast paced and the plot lacked depth. I think Rachel Gibson could have made this a full length book and added more characters and more of a story line. Blue and Kasper were young lovers that reunited after many years apart. The sex was good.but the book was very predictable. I'm rating this 3 stars, only bec [...]


    15. Yes, this was a QUICK read, but it was so stinking cute. I loved that it was a second chance romance for two divorced people who had once found something special in each others arms long long ago. I was so excited that after meeting the VERY yummy, Kasper Pennington in RUN TO YOU, the upcoming release from Rachel Gibson, that we were going to get to see him find a HEA, and he dids was super sweet and just what I needed.Love RG.She is rollin out the kick butt romancesep em coming girl!!


    16. Come ooooooon Tiny book and such a good story I love this matured characters with i loved you forever stories. And she write a Novella!!!! First she writes book Not so often. I wait for her books so much and writes a NOVELLA!!!!!!!!!!! Rachel Gibson writes book which are funny, romantic, little drama and lots of good steamy scenes. I am so disappointed in this i so wanted it to last for little longer :( but still a good one thought it was dying to finish and was hurrying up as if something was a [...]


    17. I enjoyed that romance and the main characters.Alas the novella format with about 70 pages left me slightly frustrated and hungry for more. I would have liked more depth to the characters, more insight into their past together, after and the rekindling of their attraction, as I sometimes felt those two were just impersonation of all the Southern Belle and Beau cliches. Not much more. While they really had potential to be much more than that.


    18. This would have been much better had it been a book. Gibson's storyline is strong and her leads engaging (and delightfully old: the heroine is 40, the hero, 44.) But the book ends unsatisfyingly abruptly and thus has an unbelievable HEA.


    19. I really enjoyed this beautiful story about Blue. I loved the story line & the in depth surroundings of the Cajun life of their most beautiful homes & the way of their parties & even the food they ate. The beautiful houses they lived in in such old times. Well done. A lovely short romance.


    20. เรื่องปูพื้นหลังได้ดีมาก สองตระกูลเก่าแก่เจ้าของไร่ในรัฐภาคใต้ มีประวัติยาวตั้งแต่ก่อนสงครามกลางเมือง และจนถึงปัจจุบันสองตระกูลนี้ก็ยังเป็นคุ่แข่งกันอยู่ คือเราชอบแนวการ [...]


    21. I don't know why but I expect short books to captivate my attention from the first 3 or 4 pages. And this book didn't, even though I gave it more than 4 pages to judge on. I read 20 pages and I felt nothing. So I'm not going to continue reading it.



    22. Well that was just the worst. Two people from slave-holding old New Orleans families who still live on their family plantations and feel no twinge of guilt or shame or weirdness over benefiting from their slave-holding roots? Yeah, not gonna root for those turdmuffins to find happiness. Throw in poor character development, thin plot, and a bunch of typos and you've hit the payload for thoroughly annoying me. To quote the coaster on my desk, "Stop petting my peeves."


    23. This is the first in the Military Men series. I think Kasper appears in or is mentioned in other books in the series which I have read out of order.


    24. A novella, so short and quick is the name of the game.I did not like either character. It was a boring story and missed the humor usually present in Gibson's books.



    25. Truly, Idaho. Boise, Idaho. Lovett, Texas. And most of all, Seattle, home of the Chinooks Hockey Team. These are all that places that Rachel Gibson has made me wish I lived in. She has this ability to really bring the book setting to life and make you feel like you're in the story. After reading this book, I want to go to New Orleans! I admit that Run To You wasn't my favorite Rachel Gibson book, so I don't really remember Kasper in that book. But, since she is my favorite author and I've read e [...]


    26. Good story but way too short. Blue and Kasper had first met when Blue was eighteen and Kasper was twenty-one. She had just graduated from high school and he was home on leave from the Marines. Their families had been feuding for two centuries, so neither had met before they encountered each other at a friend's party. Blue was fascinated by him, seeing all the things she had been warned about - "stay away from those rascally corrupt and sugar-mouthed Pennington boys." When she had a few minutes t [...]
