HASH(0x9a0acc0c) out of 5 stars Stayed up all night to finish it. 8 Dec. 2015

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Could not put this down! I had pre-purchased this book and noticed as I was going to bed that it downloaded at midnight. I thought I'd read a few chapters before bed. BIG MISTAKE. There was never a good place to stop reading! My heart just hurt for these characters and at times I was tempted to jump ahead to see how they make it work, because I there was too much pain to wade through before they got there. For me, the characters were well-drawn and I totally understood what was keeping them apart emotionally.

On the outside, this is a secret baby book, but the baby isn't secret for long. As I read through it, I thought it was more of a Beauty and the Beast story, because while the hero is fabulous looking, he's a beast inside, and it takes a special, patient, loving woman to tame what ails him. A truly fabulous read (and worth losing sleep over).

By romanticreadsandsuch - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
David has not had the most nurturing upbringing – his dad is pretty intense and has more than his fair share of pride. He seems like a pretty ruthless man and has been David’s main family since he was 9 & his mom left. David blames her for abandoning him and he’s put up some thick walls when it comes to romance.

Meeting Maria throws him for a bit of a loop, especially when he starts falling for her. Of course, he handles that very poorly but fate has another twist in store for him :) While David continues to try to keep things unemotional, it’s very hard to resist Maria’s love of life … and having her in his life every day, shaking things up, isn’t helping. She’s nothing like he’s used to but that has to be the best thing for him because that man needs some major softness in his life.

I will say I was just a tiny bit confused over how much emphasis Maria put on gaining her independence and not being babied, instead wanting to be needed. I’m not sure if I just didn’t get it or if maybe it needed a little more something. She’s got her own career and has been saving money, which seems pretty adult for a mid-20s person … and maybe that’s it. I get the idea she still lives at home and her parents are pretty conservative, so perhaps it is just a little quarterlife crisis going on – she’s looking for something all her own, separate from her big, boisterous family.

Just like Letters From Home, Rhodes again delivers a romance full of warmth and humor. And I love that we have more siblings out there just waiting to meet their match!

(It’s been a while since I ready the first book in this series, but it didn’t really matter and I’m pretty sure it won’t matter if you haven't gotten to it yet.)

By Sapphyria - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Outside the Lines is a fully captivating novel by Beth Rhodes. Maria Rodriguez is suffocated by her family. They hover, make her decisions, and their treatment of her makes Maria feel inferior. When she meets David March, he's the breath of fresh air she's been craving. He lets her be her and appreciates everything about her.

Then, in a blink of an eye, he's gone.

Maria soon discovers that their nights of unbridled passion has thrust her and David into parenthood. In order to hide it from her family, she embarks on an across country trip to find out what happened to David. What she finds when she gets to his home is nothing like she expected. Who is this David March and what did he do with one that Maria loves?

David suggests a marriage contract that will provide their unborn child with both parents. They will live together but there won't be any emotional attachment. Coming from a close-knit, warm family, Maria doesn't know she can handle this type of cold, impersonal relationship.

David is no stranger to cold relationships devoid of intimacy. After is parents divorced, he never saw his mother again until after he turned 18. His father is 150% all business. The woman who wants to be his wife is only a trophy and David has no feelings for her. Then Maria walks back into his life. He can make this contractual, he just knows it - except his heart may have other ideas.

Beth Rhodes has written a wonderful second book in her Love Beyond Reason series. The dialogue of her characters is fluid, understandable, and smooth. There aren't any uncomfortable sections or areas that I felt needed to skip. The author provided enough background and details to convey the story but not so many that it felt cluttered or over-embellished.

Outside the Lines is a fantastic book about complicated families, heartbreaking pasts, and hopeful futures. The story is realistic and evokes the reader's emotions - excellence. By Chapter 2, the emotional content had me feeling Maria's pain at David's callous words. By Chapter 3 I knew this book was going to be a 5 star hit.

I enjoyed every moment of Maria and David's story.

HASH(0x9ae05984) out of 5 stars Never before has Maria done something against the rules or that would make people disappointed in her 10 Dec. 2015
By steamy book momma - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This is the second book in this series however I don’t think that you have to read one to read this one. This book broke my heart at times. Maria Rodriguez finally did something just for herself. Never before has Maria done something against the rules or that would make people disappointed in her. They called her sister Maria in school. David March was just in town on a get away from his life when he met Maria. They had an instant connection and he even met and hung out with her family and then he just left. Shortly after Maria found out she was pregnant. Maria doesn’t tell her family and decides the first person who should know is David. So she finds out where he lives and heads off to tell him. But, when she gets there she doesn’t find the David she knows and fell in love with. What’s worse is when she tells him she is pregnant his first plan after thinking for a bit is that they should get married. It is what would be best for the baby. While he says there would be no stepping out and things, he also says that there would be no emotional attachment either. Will Maria be able to handle a marriage like that? How long before she gets hurt loving a man who doesn’t love her back? Will David be able to keep his emotions out of the relationship? After it’s not like he doesn’t feel anything at all for Maria. I felt so bad for David. He has an extremely difficult childhood. His mother left when he was 9 and after she didn’t try and contact him till he turned 18. He was so hurt by what had happened with his mother that he refused to let anyone really in to hurt him again. He ran from what Maria made him feel and almost lost her in the process. Maria isn’t the baby of the family however that is exactly what her family treats her like. They baby her and over protect her. Part of her thought she could get some independence by marrying David. Maria wants to be needed, wants to care for someone. This baby despite being a surprise is just what she wants; someone who will need her. What she doesn’t realize is David needs her, he doesn’t realize it either right away. Both their families aren’t crazy about what they did. I really enjoyed this book. To me the book was fairly sad because of everything David went through and how it affected his current life. The book was hopeful however. Maria changed David’s life in more ways than he can count. She helped him so much. I look forward to reading more books in this series in the future. The characters are wonderful and I look forward to reading more about them in the future. Another great job Beth Rhodes.
I was given this book in return for an honest review.
HASH(0x9a54e7a4) out of 5 stars Families are complicated… 10 Dec. 2015
By diducky - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Maria Rodriguez and David March came together for a summer of fun, freedom and love. When they part ways, and then reconnect, they each have a much different take on what that time actually meant. Maria believed she had found the love of her life but soon realizes that David was, in reality, much different than the man she had known. Caught between misunderstandings and different expectations – both their own and their families – they have a lot to sort out before their unplanned family grows.

This was a slow starting story for me as much of the history between Maria and David was glossed over in the beginning. I didn’t really understand all the conflict and drama that was suddenly happening. David was actually kind of a jerk and not very likable at all. He wasn’t cruel or abusive but just very cold and standoffish. And his behaviour after the summer just didn’t sign not romantic hero material. No, not all. Maria, on the other hand, seemed to weather each blow as best she could, trying to balance her unborn child’s needs, her own, and even those of the stranger she fell in love with. Lots of uncertainty leading to misunderstandings, leading to drama, leading to conflict…
Lots of drama, some a bit over the top, but I really found myself getting into the storyline and the characters. At the end I realized that I cared about them. Both seemed to grow and mature as they worked through their problems – always a good sign! My first book by this author and certainly not my last…

One of my favourite quotes - “Don’t ever stop thinking with your heart, Maria. It’s what brought you to me, and I need you.”
