  1. Melissa Brown is a new to me author who has given an intense, passionate, and emotional love story filled with angst My emotions were all over the place reading Kate and Evan s story and I loved every minute of it The writing is very good and flows smoothly It s loaded with great dialogue and an added bonus is each chapter alternates between the H h POV The hero is sexy as sin The heroine is very lovable The love scenes are scorching and intimate The story pulls you in at the beginning and never [...]


  2. 3 Angsty Stars I know I m in the minority but I didn t love this book The plot was well fleshed out and captivating but, frankly, there was nothing particularly original about it At times, I also struggled with the prose feeling somewhat forced and simplistic but that didn t hurt my overall enjoyment of the story I really like the heroine and felt sympathetic toward her, but I didn t care much for the hero I ll admit that his groveling was good, but by that point it was too little, too late Over [...]

  4. For the past two years, I ve been totally absorbed in the melodramatic, angst ridden world of digital romance created mostly by indie authors Their stories are usually written in 1st person POV and sometimes as is the case here in dual 1st person POV IMO this is by far the best POV to tell a story from because the reader is privy to what is going on in the minds of both hero and heroine It effectively does away with the WTF moments and thus brings a new vulnerability to the hero that, until now, [...]


  5. Unpopular opinion Alert And Rant I am so sick of NA reads They supposedly love someone yet they can t keep their di ks in their pants This is One of my biggest pet peeves ever But all the reviewers on this book never mention it and give it 5 stars and call it an epic romance and how swoon worthy and romantic and wonderful he is and I am like wtf A romantic swoon worthy hero would have talked it out and kept his pants zipped like the h did Just yuk I hate these type of stories and i wish i never [...]


  6. LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVED.love loved I think I got enough loves in there What a perfect story for Evan I fell for him in Bouquet Toss and I was so excited he was getting his own story, but I had no idea it would be anything like this I loved Kate and Evan together, their relationship was a mix of sweet, hot, and sassy on Kate s part and all came together for one hell of an adventure Definitely not a perfect relationship by any means and there will be times you yell at both of them, but they have [...]

  13. The second installment in Melissa Brown s Love of My Life Series, Champagne Toast delivers a punch in the gut, a swooning romance and a testament to true love I was emotionally invested in the story of Kate and Evan simply because I felt their pain as they tried to maneuver through what they both believed was a relationship doomed from the start Melissa Brown fluently expressed every emotion through Kate and Evan s words and thoughts When an author s words move you enough that you swear you can [...]

  16. 4.5 starsLast KissLuckyThere s something about this book that just draws you in, when I first read the blurb of this one I was excited to read it, the book trailer Champagne Toast Trailer was just squeeeee I know I shouldve read Bouquet Toss first but I just had to bypass and jump right in Im a huge sucker for second chance love stories and this one doesnt disappoint Evan is a sweetie, I mean really even if I had no prior background on him He just wins I adored him he was all heart,I was about t [...]


  17. 4.5 StarsCheck out reviews at realitybites letsgetlostsMy Thoughts A true romance story If you are looking for a book that gives you that warm, fuzzy butterflies in your gut feelingis is your book Although Champagne Toast has some references to Bouquet Toss, it is a stand alone book CT is told through both Kate and Evans point of views I love this because I get to see and feel the deep emotion I felt for these characters The were very relatable Their faults were out there along with their stren [...]


  18. I really liked this Evan was a great Hero LOVE HIM Kate lots of fun and sass as a heroine Typical heroine though where you want to punch her a few times for being so fucking stupid Some people aren t fans of the whole back and forth with the future of the past I like it when the story starts at the mark so we know they are broken and we have to go back to the past to find out what happened to them to break so we can then get to them being complete at the end example Think Avoiding Responsibility [...]


  19. 4.5 stars Really, really liked this one Love me some romantic drama but hate the angst Angst here was well written and didn t have me anxiously speed reading ahead to find out what would happen with Evan Kate but satisfying enough to let me enjoy how it played out Both Evan Kate were evenly flawed but likeable which is rare for me to like both H h and the story with its emotional ups and downs developed at an even believable pace Alternating POV s which I always enjoy and a very HEA for Evan Kat [...]


  20. I m not sure what I love Melissa Browns writing or her love of 80 s movies I was given the gift of one of the best movie scene ever insert one large boom box and one love sick John Cusack in The Bouquet Toss and now I am gifted with The Breakfast Club Sweet Throw in a NKOTB reference and I knew that this book had The Right Stuff.In the follow up to The Bouquet Toss, The Champagne Toast brings us Evan Evan Maxwell and Kate Armour fell hard and fast for each other while attending college Their on [...]


  21. So glad I picked up this book I was so certain I would love the background on Evan and Kate I had made up my mind that it would take a while for Kate to work her way into my system Well that took about 5 sentences I think I fell harder for Kate than Evan did Evan actually lost some serious ground, it took him a while to dig himself out of that hole.I loved the start and the end of the book, but I felt a bit cheated in the middle I know it was all for the good of the story but I wanted my HEA lik [...]


  22. EVAN Boom Now that I ve got that out of the way, let me tell you about Melissa Brown s Champagne Toast I was introduced into Melissa Brown s world of writing when I found a hidden gem of a book called Bouquet Toss Little did I know how much my reading world would be rocked So needless to say, I was freakin giddy like a school girl when I found out there would be another book following Bouquet Toss I remember messaging Ms Brown, telling her how much I enjoyed Evan s character in Bouquet Toss And [...]


  23. First things first, middle aged, heterosexual males with Hemingway complexes were not on Ms Brown s radar when she was penning this book I m about as far from the target audience of this novel as you can get That being the case, I liked it I really liked it Champagne Toast works incredibly well when the reader is drawn into the hearts and minds of Kate and Evan These characters are fully formed and fleshed out early enough in the story that not only does the reader feel that they get to know the [...]


  24. I LOVED this book It was full of angst and romance, and the writing was beautiful Evan and Kate were a great couple that you couldn t help but root for one minute and want to kick them in one or both of their arses the next Both together and apart, they were at times likable and at other timest so much This is my kind of contemporary romance, and I loved the use of the timeline and back and forth POV s to tell their story This is my first Melissa Brown read, and I can t wait to read Note I didn [...]


  25. I thought Melissa Brown had outdone herself with Bouquet Toss, but WOW, she knocked this one straight out of the park This is the second book in her Love of Your Life series and it does not disappoint Evan is a man that you can t help but fall in love with I adored him and ached with him during his journey with Kate Melissa can write some serious love scenes without making them graphic to the point of many erotica novels Her words flowed beautifully through this story and I was blown away Reflec [...]


  26. I loved the story of Evan I wondered about him in Bouquet Toss and I just knew he was a perfect storyline It was good to see Kate come into her own.on her own So I guess the break with Evan was a part of her life lesson to be able to stand on her own and recognize her talents and her qualities Why is it though that the man always gets to date and screw around, but the female does not TWO YEARS and she remains Celibate Really So stereotypical and so not fair.All in all a great read job Melissa


  27. I loved this book.The story line was a breath of fresh air It didn t involve Billionaire playboys w a BDSM fetish or characters that had unrealistic heavy baggage They were the true couple next door type A couple you could relate to which made a huge pull on my heart while I read it No eye rolling here.


  28. I read the sample of this book After reading it I was hesitant to buy the book I didn t like how the sample jumped around in time Bout, because of the reviews I read I decided to purchase the book I am SO glad I did This book was awesome I pulled at my emotions through the entire book GREAT READ


  29. It quotes The Breakfast Club that sound like a winner to me I really enjoyed reading this book it was a breath of fresh air I wish that it had a second part.


  30. Review originally posted on Talk SupeChampagne Toast is a very well written romance with characters who have great chemistry and an angst driven story that ll keep you transfixed from the very beginning till the very end where our main characters finally reach their happily ever after Evan and Kate s story was emotionally telling and realistic and I enjoyed every minute of the highs and lows of their romance You were my first and only love, and you ripped my fucking heart to shreds You demolishe [...]
