Review of The Way the Story Goes by Samantha Chase


It's time to escape winter and return to Magnolia Sound with THE WAY THE STORY GOES from New York Times bestselling author Samantha Chase. This is one enemies-to-lovers and small town romance lovers won't want to miss!


Thriller writer Mia Kingsley has been hit with a serious case of writer’s block and she needs a little peace and quiet. A beach front property in Magnolia Sound seemed like the perfect escape and just the change of scenery she needs to get the words flowing again. That is, until her noisy neighbor starts running power tools and blasting music at all hours of the day and night. Before long, the next victim in her story starts to bear an uncanny resemblance to the contractor next door.

Austin Coleman never wanted to come back to Magnolia Sound. But sometimes, life takes an unexpected turn and the only way to get back on your feet is to go home. His plan is to avoid all things connected to his past, and renovating a beach house in the off-season is just the way to do that—there’ll be no neighbors and no distractions. Or so he thought until he almost maims his sexy neighbor with a flying sink. Despite his best efforts, trouble follows everywhere he goes.

At first she wanted to kill him. Now she wants to kiss him. Sometimes you just have to wait and see where the story goes.

My Thoughts… Author, Mia Kingsley, heads to Magnolia Sound to be near her best friend and to get away from the craziness of Boston.    She moves into an amazing house on the beach.   The house next to hers is being remodeled and the noise is making her crazy, leaving her unable to concentrate on working.    Then she meets the contractor, and it is not just the noise that is leaving her unable to work, she cannot get Austin Coleman out of her thoughts.

Samantha Chase is a queen of writing fun and sassy romance stories.   The characters are never perfect, their stories are never easy, and the love that grows is always strong and true.    Austin and Mia are both dealing with people who have put them down their entire lives.   People who expected more from them and were never happy with what they had to do.   They both have learn to accept that other people’s opinions should not force them to make decisions.   They are both adults and very able to make their own choices and deserve to find their happiness.   

I love Mia and Austin together.   They have not come from the same worlds, yet it does not matter.   The two of them together are perfect.   It is when the outside world gets involved that things get messy.   I enjoyed how they were together, I liked how they opened up to each other.   The trust between them gave me hope that no matter what had happens until the outside world starts giving their opinions.    They came together, they talked, they trusted, they fought, and they loved.
