"No Love Allowed: "

" Evangelista takes a familiar story of young love and makes it fresh." VOYA

"Given the growing awareness towards understanding the stigmas, issues and concerns surrounding mental illness, I find it refreshing that this book doesn t preach about what to do or how to be it just tells a story of two people who fall in love and who just also happen to struggle with issues that deserve a place to be talked about." -Whatsageek.com

Wow. I loved this. LOVED it. Kate used a deft touch, getting Didi just right. I m looking forward more in this series because all the main players deserve their own stories. Read this book. You will NOT be disappointed. - Christine Ashworth, Swoon Reader

It s like a modern fairy tale. - Camelle, Swoon Reader

The romance was incredible. There was also a great set of secondary characters. Nathan was my favorite. And I'm so thrilled that he's going to get his own story too. I can't wait for it. The perfect YA contemporary romance for me. It had humor, romance, awesome characters and great writing. Pretty much everything I want in a book. - Stephanie (Bookfever)"

Natasha and Jackson used to be inseparable. Natasha thought he was her one true love, but then Jackson left without saying goodbye. He broke her heart. Jackson wanted to make it as a DJ, which is why he left Dodge Cove. He's successful at what he does, but there's no light and happiness in his life without Natasha. He regrets leaving everything he loved behind for the sake of his career and is going back to his hometown to make amends. However, Natasha doesn't want to spend any time with him. Will Jackson be able to make things right or has he gone too far to be allowed a second chance?

Natasha is a sweetheart. She's treating everyone with kindness and respect, until they hurt her. She's stubborn and doesn't want Jackson to approach her. He made her feel depressed and miserable and she isn't looking for a second round of utter devastation. Jackson made a selfish choice and I was sad for her because of how much she suffered. When Jackson realizes Natasha is much more important than fame and fortune it might be too late. I loved that he keeps trying to make things right and admits that he's been incredibly stupid. He clearly learned an important lesson, but at a terrible price, his heart. It's an amazing subject for a story and I read No Second Chances in one sitting because I couldn't wait to find out what would happen between Natasha and Jackson. It's obvious they still love each other, but is that enough?

Kate Evangelista has an easy flowing writing style. Her love stories are all interesting and unique, which is something I really like. Dodge Cove is a gorgeous setting and I enjoyed reading about it very much. I love how versatile Kate Evangelista's characters are.

I'm sure that, had I read the other books in this story, and having been already acquainted with some of the characters in this book, I would have been chomping at the bit to read this story.

As it is, this is a book which is read perfectly well as a standalone, but would no doubt be enhanced by reading books 1 and 2 first.

That said, this wasn't a bad story. It felt like a much shorter book than the number of pages imply, given that it was such an easy read.

There was little drama, although I did feel that the characters and their interactions were grounded in reality. The humour and the dialogue all felt very organic.

For me, this is a book to read when you want a light, entertaining distraction.

I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Be on the lookout for the grand gestures! Yes–plural! 20 May 2017
By April ~ The Reading Belles - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
For someone who has just read a Kate Evangelista book, I’d say my first time was okay. This book is the third in a series with characters from previous books, living in the same place–Dodge Cove, and is a standalone. There were things though that may have been clearer to me had I read the first two books but it’s not something that really bothered me.

Jackson “DJ Ax” Mallory’s been living the life DJ-ing his way to the world post-Dodge Cove. It’s his dream to make music after all and being so young, he had to give up the one thing that brings life to his music–Natasha Parker. He knew he broke her heart when he left but he never really comprehended how miserable, broken she had been. One encounter in Amsterdam turned his whole world upside down and made him realized two things: she didn’t want a second chance with him anymore and he’s determined to win her back whatever the cost.

Jackson and Natasha have already established their chemistry from the first few pages of the book. They’re childhood sweethearts so the book was peppered with a lot of cutesy memories of them together. I am so glad it’s not done in flashbacks but more like they’re reminiscing what they did in the now. Both characters’ feelings for each other were heartfelt–even the hurt, the frustration, the confusion. The narrative and pacing of the story helped to make the emotions pop.

Jax is a successful DJ now and despite that, he still felt lost because he doesn’t have the love of his life. He knew he wanted Tash back even when all of Dodge Cove people were mad at him for what he did. The thing I liked about Jax was his drive to make Tash forgive him, maybe even love him again and all the ways that he did to do just that (which were all very unique, by the way).

While Tash is a character I didn’t really connect with that much, she’s kindhearted, compassionate with people around her and not the prima donna type of girl despite her elite status. She wasn’t herself when Jax left her. After a year of trying to heal the wound of the past, Jax is back and she still hated him. That feeling still resurfaced even when Jax did his best job on doing a few grand gestures. I understood why she still had doubts and why she needed a more concrete reason to justify his intentions.

The story was predictable and cliche but I liked the creativity of the grand gestures and the way it was written. I think I would’ve liked it even better if both characters had an in-depth conversation about their relationship. Like a mature talk, perhaps? It was like it’s only on the surface and not explored well.

There was also a scene by the end where Tash attended a party in a maxi dress and then the people carried her, passed her on to get to the stage to see Jax. And I was like… woah girl??? Um… you’re wearing a maxi dress???

Quoting from the book:

Yet she found herself dressing up anyway, choosing a maxidress and flats and braiding her hair.

Then…

Sleeveless guy shared a look with Dreadlocks, and they both grinned. In one heave, they hoisted Natasha onto their shoulders. She squeaked in surprise.

“What are you doing?” she asked breathlessly. “Put me down!”

“Pass her forward,” someone shouted from below her.

As if on cue, a multitude of hands supported her weight.

Overall, I think it’s a fun book and others may enjoy reading this more than I did.

Kate Evangelista has an easy flowing writing style. Her love stories are all interesting and unique, which is something I really like. Dodge Cove is a gorgeous setting and I enjoyed reading about it very much. I love how versatile Kate Evangelista's characters are. They have different character traits and they're a colorful group of people, but they have a few things in common as well, they love their hometown, they are incredibly talented and they have goals. I like that they are quite grownup for their age and that they have serious plans for the future. It's one of my favorite things about the Dodge Cove series. No Second Chances is another fantastic story about this fascinating setting. It's a terrific moving and romantic story and I highly recommend it.
4.0 out of 5 stars Curb your second chance romance cravings with this one! 18 May 2017
By Natasha Anne - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
If you are looking for a light-hearted, funny read about second chances romance filled with grand gestures and Harry Potter obsession, look no further, you have arrived at the right destination.

Quick fun fact: My name is Natasha and my baby brother was almost named Nathan at birth! But... my mom thought otherwise and decided on Jarod. If you read the book, you'd also know that Natasha and Nathan are twins in the story. What a strange coincidence right?! Sadly, I'm no debutante and I certainly do not have a great sense of fashion :P

With the random fact aside, off with my review!

One look at the cover and blurb and I'm expecting some sort of bawl your eyes out kind of second chance romance, the first few chapters did sound promising, but when the Harry Potter reference made its appearance, I lost it.

YES, it was predictable. YES, it was cliched in every sense, but I have to give credit to Evangelista's writing because I snickered, smirked and swooned at Jax's multiple attempts to win back Natasha, . Jax's creativity knows no boundaries and I'm blown away by the length he is willing to go (of course being a billionaire helps to achieve some of that craziness) to prove that he wants Natasha back for real, literally. And God, Natasha's family did not give him an easy time. (Fav secondary character - Albert)

But in all seriousness, Jax was a romantic at heart and I love how vivid the writing was when it comes to describing their relationship. Although I wished that the author described their past even more and delve deeper into the heartbreak, it was a funny read filled with aww-worthy moments and holy-crap scenes.

Thoughts after finishing the book: I hope my boyfriend won't take my word literally the next time I asked him to bring me the stars (and that was actually my favorite scene in the book). Is that a spoiler?! I hope not! *insert close eyes emoji*
3.0 out of 5 stars No Second Chances ARC Review 17 May 2017
By Jordan @ The Heart of a Book Blogger - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
~~~Review posted on The Heart of a Book Blogger~~~

No Second Chances is the final companion novel in the Dodge Cove Trilogy. I read No Love Allowed (review here) and No Holding Back (review here) last year, and I was excited to read Natasha's story next.

Natasha and Jackson were inseparable until Jackson left one day without a word to anyone. Jackson thought he could leave Dodge Cove without looking back in order to pursue his dream of becoming a successful DJ. Even though he has achieved his goal and had become a world-famous DJ, he realizes how much he needs Natasha and heads back to Dodge Cove in order to get her back.

Natasha was devastated after Jackson left her. A year later, Natasha's finally starting to get back to her normal self when Jackson pops back into her life. Still angry and not ready to forgive him, Natasha makes the grand statement that Jackson would need to "stop time, defy gravity, and bring down the stars" before she could forgive him. But what she doesn't know is Jackson is willing to do just that—the impossible—in order earn her forgiveness and win her back.

Jackson's grand gestures were fun and creative. I wasn't expecting these grand gestures when I first started reading the book, so I enjoyed seeing how they all played out. Even though these were a fun additions, I think Natasha and Jackson still needed a more serious conversation about their relationship. I hate to say it, but some parts seemed to be just a little too childish. I also enjoyed the cameos of the previous characters from the Dodge Cove Trilogy and glad they were incorporated.

Overall, I didn't enjoy No Second Chances as much as the other two books in the Dodge Cove Trilogy, but it was still a fun read.

4.0 out of 5 stars A solid conclusion to the trilogy 17 May 2017
By Inah (The Bibliophile Confessions) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I dove into this book knowing only one thing, that it's going to be about Natasha. I trust Kate Evangelista's writing enough that I know I'll end up loving this book, like I did with No Love Allowed and No Holding Back. I saw how this trilogy started and I'm a little sad that it came to a close. That being said, this was a solid conclusion to the trilogy. Although, technically speaking, the books can be read as standalones. Still, I am going to miss Dodge Cove!

Four chapters into the book and I already felt really emotionally invested with the characters and the story. The book started really well. I loved Natasha since the first book, she's my favorite character and I loved her even more as I read this one. Jackson was lovely too! I have to admit that I really didn't pay attention to him from the last book well, since he left Natasha (sisters before misters, yo!) but he definitely surprised me.

I read this book in one sitting, and it's a pretty fast and light read. I wish I could've seen more into the story though. I felt like there could be more depth in terms of Natasha and Jackson's break up. I don't know if it was just me, or almost everyone seemed forgiving towards Jackson. Also, the conflict between Jackson and his family could've been explored further. Honestly, I think this book has a bigger potential, but I'm still glad that it delivered pretty solid.

Overall, I really enjoyed reading this book. It made me smile for a solid two hours of reading. I definitely recommend this book, and the rest of the trilogy in case you haven't got to them yet! It's a great mix of romance, drama, and friendships!
