    1 thought on “Up to Me

    1. 3.5 starsI'm not sure I have ever read such an easy going and funny with his quick retorts hero before, Gray was really a delight to read. Gray keeps his job secret from Ella and the way it directly affects her could be seen as a huge betrayal but with how Gray works to help Ella, it was never a huge turnoff for me. Ella had her own, understandably, issues but she didn't feel as strong as a character as Gray. Together, Gray and Ella were a delightful fun, teasing, and cute couple. Their dialogue [...]

    4. *A copy of this book was supplied by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review*For no reason other than my own reading preferences, the steamy insta-lust-at-first-sight between testosterone fuelled Alpha Male, Graydon Locke, and the sassy/sweet Ella Mayhew, didn’t do it for me. But…the writing was so good that I pressed on past the first few chapters to see how this author’s ‘corporate predator falls for small town owner of failing target business’ storyline would evolve. I’m glad t [...]

    5. A new small town romance series, and it starts off so good! I like the way that Barth's heroes are super-sensitive guys that are able to keep their Alpha-manhood at the same time. It makes for refreshing reading!B+Full review posted here: thebookpushers/2014/06/25/

    6. After being practically driven out of town because of his father's actions, corporate hitman Graydon Locke loathes small towns.

    9. Originally posted on Adria’s Romance ReviewsAuthor Christi Barth brings the charm of a small town romance while adding quite a bit of humor and conflict to make Up to Me an enjoyable, light read.Graydon Locke’s job is to go undercover, assess businesses and if necessary, recommend it for closure, all while avoiding discovery by residents.

    10. Carina PressJune 23, 2014Up to MeShore Secrets series Book 1I was lucky enough to be given a review copy from the publisher through NetGalley. I'm a huge fan of Christi Barth and was excited to start reading her new series.I loved Ella from the very first page. She has had to heavily rely on her friends and her hometown since her parents were killed 3 years ago, yet is still such a strong person. I could tell that Ella didn't really trust herself completely to make decisions when the book starte [...]

    11. Small-town pride rules deep in the first book of the Shore Secrets series. Graydon Locke really had no idea what he was in for when he went on assignment to check out Seneca Lake’s beloved hotel. He didn’t know he would fall head-over-heels for the hotel’s owner, which really puts him into a super complicated situation. Gray and this town have their secrets, and secrets always make themselves known eventually, don’t they?I very much enjoy reading contemporary romances set in small towns. [...]

    17. Up To Me by Christi Barth is phenomenally emotional. A story with a strong start, what a brilliant way to start off this series.Gray is a sexy catch that quite honestly shocked me a few times throughout reading Up To Me. His own battle within himself is not easy, but after learning what Ella has under gone how was he to finish his task? I adore Gray’s quirkie side he had me smiling a few times. I would have liked to meet his mother, I must admit.Ella is an absolute love. I got everything Ms. B [...]

    18. Two-haiku review:She's made big mistakesHe plans hotel takeoverBut should he do it?Loved the locationBeen to Fingerlakes a lotA bit far-fetched plot

    19. I truly enjoyed Ella and Gray's story. It was witty, funny, emotional and was hard to put down at times to do things like eat, sleep Can't wait to read more by her.

    20. What a great love story. I cannot wait to see what happens next with Ella and Gray! Their story just unfolds thoughtout the pages. I found myself rooting for Gray in the end and it was spectacular!

    21. I was provided an e-ARC by the author in exchange for an honest review.Nowadays, contemporary romance, or romance in general is a genre that I tend to avoid. Specifically because it is so predictable! Up To Me was quite a refreshing surprise. The author, Christi Barth, takes up all the old elements, and makes something new and interesting out of them. Discovering the way she portrays her story and the details entwined within, is a pleasure. Though the novel has some painful moments, it contains [...]

    22. A well written and perfectly paced story that pulls you in from the start. Ella isn't sure what she wants to do with her life as it is until she runs into Gray and sees what they both can make of a good thing. A must read story of love and family and friends to help you along.

    23. Up to Me is the first in a new series from author Christi Barth. A fan of Christi’s, I am always excited to get my hands on a new release from her and Up to Me was no exception. Now that I’ve finished it I give it my vote as my favorite Christi book yet. It was phenomenal!Graydon Locke has made a living blending in and being observant. It’s his skill at excelling at these two things that has made his job as an undercover business analyst of sorts a successful one for him. Although if he’ [...]

    24. Slick‘s review posted on Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews4 STARSReview copy provided for an honest reviewSo I’m pretty excited about Christi Barth’s new Shore Secrets series and the first book Up To Me. One thing I’ve always appreciated about this author is her quirky characters and it looks like this series has a whole town full. This book had an interesting plot with the hero on a mission to decide if his company should do a hostile takeover of the heroine’s family hotel. The thing is w [...]

    26. The opening of this book (the voice, characters, setting, set-up) loved it. I read the first chapter and was SO excited. Woo Hoo! Future 5-star review material, baby!Unfortunately, no. Up to Me started strong and meandered to a pace that just about killed me. It was like getting in a sports car and being forced to drive 20 MPH. Beyond that, it just didn't make sense. So much of it. It was like the author forgot the premise and occasionally remembered and threw a bone at the reader. Unfortunately [...]

    27. To read this review and others like it check out my site at homelovebooks Two things stuck out to me when I read the synopsis of the book, one it took place at a hotel, and because I used to work at a hotel I was intrigues, and secondly that Gray was undercover and therefore deceiving everyone he met. It's easy to see how Gray being undercover would make thinks a bit tricky for him, and the anticipation for when everything would be revealed was definitely one of the more excited aspects of the b [...]
