4.0 out of 5 stars Life on a Ranch 25 May 2017
By Peach - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This was an enjoyable read set against the backdrop of a ranch and I liked reading about managing and living on the ranch. However, the couple was frustratingly dense when it came to feelings for each other. Gracen and Slade were best friends and have known each other since they were kids. They got along well and enjoyed each other’s presence whether it was just fishing or cleaning the stalls. However, they were both very insecure when it came to romantic feelings for each other. Each did not feel like he or she was the one. There was enough drama in the book that made it interesting.
5.0 out of 5 stars A billion stars if it were allowed... Heart wrenching and healing 19 May 2017

There are no words to describe this book or what it will do to you emotionally when you read it. There is not a person alive with a heart that won't be broken and then mended back together by this phenomenal book... There isn't a heart string it won't pull, or an emotion you won't feel. Happiness, love, friendship, sadness, hurt, anger, disgust, healing, and more... In the end all is over come and they get the HEA they deserve....
5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't put it down! 20 May 2017

What it Takes will suck you in! I couldn't put it down! The story of Gracen and Slade is beautiful. I'm always a fan of the friends to lovers stories, but the emotions the author is able to invoke through the story are truly full spectrum! Some tough subjects are captured beautifully and written with such grace. Wonderful book!
5.0 out of 5 stars Review: What It Takes by Sonya Loveday! 18 May 2017
By Kendall - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I was really, really excited when I received a copy of this book! I was able to get a sneak look at the cover when I was visiting the author, so this made me even more excited to read the book and the story behind the amazing cover! I started my ARC as soon as I had the chance and it only took me a few sittings to read! I zoomed through it lol! The plot was interesting and had a lot of romance in it! There were a few very hot scenes too! The romance between the two main characters was also very beautiful and real! The plot also had plenty of action and suspense in it! These two aspects had me desperate to read on and find out what was going to happen next! I also wasn't expecting there to be any suspense, so it was a nice surprise because I love the plot of any book to have romance, action and suspense in it! The plot also developed at the perfect pace! The only complaint that I have about this book is that it wasn't long enough lol! I felt like I had just started reading this book and then I was finished it lol! The characters were also amazing and made this book even better! Gracen was the main female character, and in this book she went through a lot! She went through loss, abuse, hurt! I obviously don't want to say too much about any of this in case of spoilers lol! Gracen was a strong character though and she powered on and kept going! I admired this a lot about her! I also connected with Gracen all the way through this book and I loved her character! She was such a genuine and lovely person that went through some horrible and rough patches in her life, but she was always surrounded by people that loved her! Slade was the main male character and also the main love interest of Gracen! Slade made a very difficult choice in this book, but he did it because he thought it was the right thing to do! It was very easy to see that he had deep feelings for Gracen and that he always had, but he thought he was doing what was best for himself and Gracen! I loved Slade a lot in this book! He was seriously hot and was perfect book boyfriend material! I loved the way he was with Gracen too! He was protective of her, but that was completely understandable! Slade also went through a lot of realisation in this book about the people that he should be surrounded by and about where he really belonged! I loved that this book was written from both Gracen and Slade's point of views! I was hoping that it was going to be after I read the synopsis, so I'm really happy that it was! It helped me connect more with both characters and it also allowed for more things to happen in the plot as the characters spent quite a bit of this book apart! I'm not sure if this book is a standalone, but I'm at least hoping that it's the beginning of a series! I would love another book for Gracen and Slade, even though the ending of their story was beautiful, but there were also a few secondary characters in this book that I could see books for, so I really hope that the author gives them books! The cover for this book is also stunning! I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it and the cover is perfect for the book! I love how well it represents the book! Big thank you to Sonya for a copy of What It Takes!
5.0 out of 5 stars Love a good cowboy read.... 18 May 2017
By Mandy @ I Read Indie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Finding the guy who would steal my heart and make me walk with my head in the clouds because my feet couldn’t find the ground wasn’t too much to ask for. Having someone hold me close and dip their head in to kiss my neck as we slow danced wasn’t either. I wanted that so bad; I craved it.
**

This was my first book by Loveday and I have to say it was a great read. I have promoted her books in the past and the covers have pulled me in. But I never had the time to read because of other commitments. Thankfully that wasn't the case with this book. I immediately signed up once I read the blurb. And so very glad I did. I look forward to more books by this amazing author.

I adored the main characters but did not adore their confusing way of thinking when it came to one another. I hated that they thought they knew the other so well, but couldn't figure out that the love they shared for one another was the real deal and not just one sided. I know they didn't want to lose the friendship, but honestly, it was plain as day. I internally screamed at them, willing them to hurry and figure it all out before it was too late. And then too late came.

**
But there were times when I saw him out of the corner of my eye and it left me breathless. He was everything I was looking for, but couldn’t have because I knew I wasn’t it for him.

Poor Gracen goes through so much in this book. If she would have found her happily ever after with Slade at the start, then there would have been no story to tell. But watching her endure heartbreak and pain just about broke me. She didn't deserve it. No one does. I felt the author handled everything wonderfully; even giving info at the end for those that may need it.

Another character I became quite attached to was Lucy, Gracen's dog. I am pretty sure I have never loved a character's pet, like I do her. Sweet and smart as a whip, Lucy stole the show several times.

I absolutely enjoyed this amazing, quick read. It keeps you pulled in and has you never wanting to put it down. So yeah, it’s unputadownable!! And I am looking forward to more stories to come from this book. Maybe Lex will get a turn next? 5 Stars!
