    Sometimes love is sweeter the second time around. I'm thrilled how my second short story of the day turned out to be a success, especially since I struggled to connect with the previous story I'd read earlier. This was my first time picking up anything by Rachel Gibson and I'm happy to report that it was a positive experience. I'm not sure why I hadn't tried her before, but I think I might have been under the impression that I'd be reading bargain-priced-grocery-store-style-basic contemporary r Sometimes love is sweeter the second time around.

I'm not sure why I hadn't tried her before, but I think I might have been under the impression that I'd be reading bargain-priced-grocery-store-style-basic contemporary romance. And maybe this wasn't all that far off in style, but I don't care because I honestly enjoyed Blue by You. It was : Cute Funny Sweet Sexy ...and managed to fit my current mood perfectly. Kasper and Blue met when she was 18 and he was 21. Their instant chemistry fueled a passion-filled experience. Then before Blue could even process what had happened, Kasper was gone. Over two decades later, these two cross paths again. The magic is still there, but Blue doesn't feel like she's able to open her heart up to the man who broke it once. I don't always like flashback scenes, but Kasper and Blue's original meeting was handled in such an intense and beautiful way that I was completely caught up in their chemistry. The first stirrings of young love is a feeling which so many of us can relate to. By allowing us to see the past, it guides the reader to dare to hope for what could be. I was drawn right back into Kasper and Blue's love affair when they met again, even though twenty two years had passed. Because I knew the past, I was invested in wanting their lives to come full circle. "You make me ache," he whispered against her cheek. The "deep south" setting felt like a third character and the history of the rivalry between Blue and Kaspar's families was downright amusing - think Hatfields and McCoys. The relationship was built on teasing banter, and was revived on teasing banter. These two were quite the pair. "Believe it or not, we have better things to do at Dahlia Hall than gossip about your family." "Like marry your cousins and make big-headed babies?" Weren't the Pennington men supposed to be sugar-mouthed? "That hasn't happened in a hundred years!" Or so. It was kind of a touchy subject. It's rare that I find a short story which manages to include enough detail to make for a rewarding read. Blue to You managed to do this and leave me satisfied when I was finished. I will definitely be looking to read more Rachel Gibson in the future after being impressed by this short little gem of a story.

    2.5 Stars This is not something I have come to expect from RG. It was a nice little story but I felt no connection/tension between H/h and there really isn't any romance - instead of reading their interaction over the week they got together we are just told that time of them seeing each other every day has gone by! .....We got a beginning, we got an end (of sorts!) but where was the middle??

    Blue By You is a second chance romance, and wonderful story with so much passion packed into just 144 pages. It's my first experience with Rachel Gibson's writing, and it most certainly will not be my last! ARC provided by Avon Books in exchange for an honest review.

Very few romances in that neck of the woods. Very nicely done. Okay, now for those annoyances: 1 -- What the hell did I just read?!! It was rolling along nicely and then ... I love you. I love you too. The End. WHAT?? Seriously? Did the author not know this was going to be a short story or what?? Very poor planning. Almost like they decided to cut down a full length book and make a short. Had to get the HEA in before the end. An awful shame. TERRIBLE! 2 -- Ditto what I said in #1. 3 -- Ditto what I said in #1 & #2!! I feel cheated. I've read shorts by this author and know, KNOW, she can do these well. This one SUCKED!!

    Anne OK

    You take what you get and you don’t throw a fit! But I wanted to because this was only a short 100 page novella!! Sweet and sexy romance with some sizzle in a second chance at love (22 years have passed since the h/h, who are 40 & 43, have seen each other). The characters and their story drew me in with a setting in the deep south and I think there could easily have been a full novel. A bit disappointed that it's not. However, this is the introduction to a new series by Rachel Gibson.

    Novela corta contemporánea ambientada en Louisiana. Un reencuentro luego de 22 años entre un ex soldado y una dama sureña. Muy dulce, sin complicaciones ni dramas. Valoro que sea una pareja madura (40 ella y 43 él). No le pongo más estrellas porque prácticamente no tiene trama ni conflicto, pero me dejó con una sonrisa en la boca. Un par de escenas hot.

    Firstly I think the product description is a bit misleading. Blue and Kasper didn't have a 'fiery teenage love affair' they had a one night stand when she was 18 and he was 21. I didn't get the impression Blue had tried to 'block him from her mind' and that she still had feelings for him because the one night stand had taken place 22 years ago! I have always been a fan of Rachel Gibson but her last few books have been disappointing.

I have always been a fan of Rachel Gibson but her last few books have been disappointing. She did a similar thing last year, release a novella before her next full length novel. Whilst last years novella was good, the full length novel disappointed and this year the novella has disappointed! It started well as the author writes good characters but it went downhill fast for me after I read of what happened 22 years ago as it then became totally predictable.The sex scenes in this book were a bit lacking as the author normally writes a good sex scene but not only that, both the teenage sex scene and the ones 22 years later featured no mention of contraception?! Blue and Kasper's families have had a two hundred year old fued. They had always been taught to stay away from each others families. That is until Blue and Kasper met and had an instant attaction but after their one night together, Kasper did something that let Blue down. Fast forward 22 years and both are living back in their family homes. Kasper has been married and divorced twice with no kids and Blue has been married and divorced with a 15 year old son (who doesn't feature in this book). I think the author should have taken out some of her descriptions of Blue and Kasper's homes and family histories and concentrated more on their 'love story'. After they re-connect it was very rushed with more telling than showing. I know it's a novella so we don't get to know how their HEA panned out...how did Blue's Son react? How did their families react? Also Kasper telling Blue he regretted not having children but that he would like her to have a few of his children when she's aged 40?! (not impossible I know but still?!). Most puzzling of all after Kasper's declaration..why had it taken him so long to tell Blue this when he had been living back in New Orleans for 5 years?! In all honesty I think this book would have worked much better as a full length novel. There is a teaser at the end for the new full length book which features characters from her last book but after reading the teaser, it hasn't really stirred my interest. It may be time to move on from Ms Gibson I fear...

    I loved these characters. Blue and Kasper are both funny and smart-mouthed and believably Southern, and the chemistry between them sizzles. I loved that they are both over forty and that, although they have lived full lives, they have not forgotten their brief time together. In fact, I love Blue and Kasper and their story so much that I think they deserve more than five chapters. I want them to have their HEA, but this HEA happens too quickly for me to believe in it.

For readers who have never read Rachel Gibson, “Blue by You” is a quick, inexpensive introduction to her style. My guess is that many such readers will be delighted with her characterization skills and her ability to craft a sizzling love scene and will be ready to check out her upcoming novel Run to You. But I suspect most Gibson fans will share my longing for Blue and Kasper’s story to be more. See full review at Just Janga: http://justjanga.blogspot.com/2013/08...

    Started good and I liked the characters. Unfortunately, it was too short to develop the story. The beginning held my interest and then the wrap up/ending. The part where the relationship should have been fleshed out and developed was missing. 2.5 stars.

    The premise of Blue By You roped me in – lovers reunited, family mansion, set in a (slightly) unusual setting for contemporary romance. Plus, Rachel Gibson is typically fabulous. But…Blue was too short. There was a good bit of time given in the book to the flashbacks, and in a short story, it gave even less time for them to discover each other as adults.

She does such a beautiful job with her characterizations and storytelling that she pulls you in and you want MORE, way more than 100 pages. I loved these characters, but would have been over the moon if this story was expanded into a full length book. I would buy it guaranteed. This story centers around Kasper and Blue two descendants of New Orleans plantation families that have been feuding for generations, they had a past encounter years ago, but reconnect and their sexual chemistry ignites a fire that draws them together, but will they be able to overcome the obstacles to avoid history repeating itself? I love the banter from Kasper's grandmother, the opening scene in graveyard when she is confessing to Blue's grandmother's grave had me smiling and laughing. While reading this novella I kept picturing scenes from Gone with the Wind and it made me want to go to New Orleans and visit one of these old plantation homes (hence, proof that RG can tell a great story-even in 100 pages). Please don't let me dissuade you from purchasing this novella, it like everything else Rachel Gibson writes is a good read. I am giving it 3.5 Stars and I think for any RG fan you will want this novella for your collection. COMING SOON FROM RACHEL GIBSON:I had the pleasure of reading Rachel's next full length book, Run to You, set for release on September 24th. I will be reviewing that book next week, but let me tell you, Rachel Gibson is back on her A game. Run to you is FABULOUS, AWESOME, AMAZING... can you tell I loved it? I love most all or Rachel's books in general, they are all on my read and re-read shelves. I think Run to You may be my new favorite of all her books! I highly recommend pre-ordering it now! (At the time of this posting the Mass Market Paperback for Run to You was available at an INSANE pre-order price of only $4.79 (subject to change-Click here to pre-order Run to You).

I'm normally not a fan of novellas, just because I don't feel there's enough room for ample buildup and development between characters. However, Blue By You ended up working as the two MC's were not meeting for the first time around in the present. Kasper and Blue had actually met each other as teens and were attracted to each other then. Blue has never quite been able to forget the one night she spent with Kasper Pennington, even though she knows their families are great rivals. 22 years later, she is surprised to come face to face with the good-looking former Marine. The only issue with this novella I had was the case of insta-love. I can understand the two being attracted to one another when they were younger and even now years later, but to make declarations of love in such a short amount of time without really having gotten to know one another again? I didn't find that entirely believable. I realize it is a novella and that there's not that kind of room for development, but I still felt it was too rushed. Don't get me wrong- I loved their passion together! It was seriously hot. I also loved that it was set in New Orleans, because you really got that Southern hospitality feel and that Rachel is such a descriptive story teller! A cute, fun, light read- as long as you don't mind some insta-love!

    I enjoyed that romance and the main characters. Alas the novella format with about 70 pages left me slightly frustrated and hungry for more. I would have liked more depth to the characters, more insight into their past together, after and the rekindling of their attraction, as I sometimes felt those two were just impersonation of all the Southern Belle and Beau cliches. Not much more. While they really had potential to be much more than that.

    This would have been much better had it been a book. Gibson's storyline is strong and her leads engaging (and delightfully old: the heroine is 40, the hero, 44.) But the book ends unsatisfyingly abruptly and thus has an unbelievable HEA.

The story is only about 100 pages in length. For what it is, this story does a good job of drawing you in. The heroine and hero live on neighboring, former plantations in Louisiana. They each come from illustrious southern families who are no longer wealthy but still hold the vestiges of a long standing feud in their bones. Blue Butler is a 40 year old divorcee, with a 15 year old son who we do not meet in the story. She has sunk the money from her alimony into refurbishing her old family home and the accompanying slave quarters and has opened them up for tours. Her neighbor is Kasper Pennington, a 43 year old, twice married, former sniper, who was in the Marines. He too is refurbishing his old home, financing it through his construction business. Kasper and Blue have a brief but intense history. Twenty-two years ago, they had an assignation that ended abruptly. Now, they’re back at the “scene of the crime” and have met again. Will they pick up where they left off or will festering sore feelings keep them apart? As I mentioned, this story does pull you in very well for such a short tale. However, I definitely wanted more. Kasper’s grandmother and Blue’s son would have been welcome additions to the plot. The little we do get of the grandmother is the one of the best parts. The story develops over a few days. Even though an intensity of attraction was established, I would’ve liked a longer timeframe to enjoy this couple and give their re-acquaintance more room to breathe. I’d give this a B.

    Well that was just the worst. Two people from slave-holding old New Orleans families who still live on their family plantations and feel no twinge of guilt or shame or weirdness over benefiting from their slave-holding roots? Yeah, not gonna root for those turdmuffins to find happiness. Throw in poor character development, thin plot, and a bunch of typos and you've hit the payload for thoroughly annoying me. To quote the coaster on my desk, "Stop petting my peeves."

    This is the first in the Military Men series. I think Kasper appears in or is mentioned in other books in the series which I have read out of order.

    A novella, so short and quick is the name of the game. I did not like either character. It was a boring story and missed the humor usually present in Gibson's books.
