    Dear Eyelids,I am so sorry that you are having a difficult time staying open today. To be completely honest with you, it is not my fault. I blame Ella Jade. I could not put Something More down no matter how much my head was telling me I needed to go to sleep. -MeSeriously, I could not put this book down and am running on fumes. I do not know what it is about her writing that sucks me in so completely. Magic maybe. I am not even a huge contemporary romance fan, but this is the second book I have read by her and I am completely addicted to her books now. I plan to get each and every one of them.I think what makes this book special is a combination of things. The first is that you have completely warped situation. Seriously, you fall in love with a woman who you in turn find out is carrying your brother's child. Warped, yet riveting. Then you have the dynamics of the brother's relationship, which was strained and almost more paternal than brotherly. You add to that a young and in someways very innocent young woman. She is a combination of intelligent, fiesty, and who tends to make some really bad decisions. I know I did not do it justice. The only thing I wish is that their was an epilogue. Not because it needed one, but because I just really wanted a glimpse of the future 5 years later. Do I love the characters? Not really. In some ways I do not even like them that much, but I am invested in them and have this need to know more. It was this drive that kept me up until 3am when I should have been sleeping. If you love contemporary romance, unusual pairings, and a bit of heat this book is probably for you. Please do not get this book if you are under 18. It really is for grown ups ;).

    The reason I gave this book 5 stars is how wonderfully written this story is. Yes, it does drag a little bit. But it is what is needed in this book if that makes sense. After everything that the Callahan family has put Claudia though and now she is pregnant with Gavin's child she really wants nothing to do with them. Gavin wants nothing to do with the child but she needs her job and the benefits that come with it, so she can give her child some kind of life. What she doesn't expect was for Brody to walk into her life and start making it worth something more. But will the bun in the oven make him regret spending time with her? I voluntarily read an advance reader copy for my honest review.

    This is a really sweet, well written story. Claudia and Brody are a great couple. Brody is the sweetest guy and his brother Gavin is a complete douche. Claudia and Brody are not an obvious match and they have issues to work out but they really do work together. There are lots of complex issues in this book, lots of complicated family issues. Love is what makes life worth living and that is what Brody and Claudia were missing, and what they find when the find each other. They get their happy ever after.

    A really sweet love story with a twist. Reminded me a bit of the movie 'Sabrina' but with a baby. Gavin is a huge douche but Brody more than makes up for his horrible treatment of Claudia. Can't wait to see what Ella Jade has in store for Gavin in the sequel.I received an Advanced Reviewers Copy from the author for voluntary review consideration.

    This book was extremely sweet and romantic. The relationship between Claudia and Brody was basically love at "first" sight. I say "first" because they actually knew each other since Claudia was a child but never paid attention to each other. Knowing this made the amazing speed of their true love more realistic.The good? Very sweet story. Brody and Claudia were pleasant and likable. As were some of the background characters. The villains of the piece were appropriately creepy and unpleasant. Claudia was painfully young and clueless in this story and while I sometimes wanted to shake her, I remember being that incredibly young and clueless, too. I did want to find out what happened to them. And they were very sweet together. Brody was a saint. I've never met a guy that mellow. He was smart, devoted, forgiving, and good at business. He came across as much older than Claudia though they weren't really that far apart.The not-so-good for me? That's behind the spoiler cut. (view spoiler)[ For me, some of the graphic sex scenes felt necessary, and some felt like the editor said, "Add more. No, wait, more". My least favorite part was the ending. Gavin's attitude was the main source of conflict in the story. After all Gavin's whining, the threats and anger, the guy simply changes his mind about *everything* he ranted about for the whole book? For no apparent reason, unless it was the total shock of Brody saying something mean back? Snap. Done. What? I was disappointed. It was too easy. After the way Gavin acted throughout the whole story it seemed totally out of character for him to suddenly turn into a mellow, sort of mature guy, because we never saw him be nice until then. I thought it was a trick, but no, everyone went on their merry way and all was perfect.(hide spoiler)]Despite my issues with the parts I mentioned I do recommend this for people looking for a very sweet mild read with some graphic sex tossed in. I'm sure there are a lot of people for whom the bits that bothered me won't bother them at all.Note that I did win a copy of this book in a blog hop.

    LOOOOVE IT!!! Chicas súbanlo a su lista de pendientes, se los super recomiendo, TIENEN que leerlo y no se van a arrepentir, yo no lo pude soltar hasta que lo terminé smile emoticonMe fascinó cómo la autora creó cada uno de los personajes…El tema es complicado pero supo llevar muy bien la historia y todos los personajes tienen su toque real y eso me gustó.Estoy segura que muchas autoras hubieran hecho mucho drama con la trama o con los personajes pero Ella Jade la supo manejar SUPER bien y eso hizo que la historia me encantara. Brody es uno de los personajes más hermosos que he leído. Es todo un príncipe y en serio que con cada página me enamoraba más y mas que ahorano se que voy a leer jajajaja… No recuerdo haber leído a otro personaje como él y no quiero describirlo porque si pongo todas sus cualidades sería dar spoilers… prefiero que lo descubran poco a poco pero realmente me encantó su personalidad:)Creo que hubiera sido más feliz con un epílogo pero aún así le doy 5 estrellas!definitivamente voy a buscar más de ésta autora

    What an amazing story between Brody & Claudia, a story I wouldn’t change one word, one paragraph, one page. Claudia picks the wrong brother in the beginning and ends up pregnant. When Brody finds her asleep in a guest room he can’t turn away, he’s drawn to her and vows to be there for her. As she gets to know the older brother she has some hard choices to make, walk away before it becomes too much or tell him the whole truth about Gavin and her baby.What a read and a beautiful heartfelt romance, the perfect book boyfriend, Brody. Claudia is one independent woman and I loved her strength as well as her honesty. I LOVED the reaction Brody had when he learns the truth and everything that happened after, darn it, I loved everything he did before as well....sigh swoon sigh swoon is not enough. The honesty between them and how they work together, expressing their feelings and emotions puts this book apart from the rest, I even got a bit misty eyed at times with the emotions flowing. Along with the steamy sensual scenes, the amazing characters and their relationship, the story and plot, the beautiful romance, made it hard to put down and a read you don’t want to miss. Worth more than 5 stars !!

    Claudia and Brody's romance was sweet. Brody being protective of Claudia after finding out she was expecting his brother Gavin's child. Gavin was deplorable to both Claudia and Brody. Gavin does not want the baby but tries to use the baby as leverage (or blackmail) over Brody to get what he wants. In the end it was a surprise to me that Gavin did a 180 degree turn and was now on board with giving Brody what he wanted. The story abruptly ends without explaining what really caused the change in Gavin. I wished it would have explained that more and how it affected Gavin's relationship with his girlfriend Mona. Also Gavin's mother Angela (Brody's stepmother) also made a 180 degree turn when she found out the truth. She was portrayed as a wicked employer to Claudia and then warms up to her. Again a little more explanation would have been good. All in All it is a decent read except towards the end where I just had a lot of questions. I voluntarily received an Advanced Readers Copy.

    I loved Claudia so much! She is in such a difficult position. She falls in love (or what she believes to be love) with someone she's known for years. Unfortunately what she believed to be a fairy tale romance blows up in her face - epically. While accidentally napping when cleaning a room, Brody sees her and is taken with her immediately. Brody doesn't see or notice the "class" discrepancy despite her working as a maid in his stepmother's home and he being in charge of the entire estate. She can't seem to get past it, but Brody is persistent. There is a triangle between Claudia, Brody and Gavin, but I wouldn't call it a love triangle. (Brody and Gavin are stepbrothers). This was a riveting tale and had me turning the pages quickly. I highly recommend this book.I received an advanced reader copy of this book for a voluntary and completely honest review.

    Something MoreA modern day Cinderella with a twist. Passionate, endearing, sexy, and a no nonsense hero. Her mistake will be his greatest gift. Claudia and Brody found each other and their struggles only made their love for each other stronger.Claudia is a great strong independent but struggles to believe that she deserves Brody and what he can offer her. Brody knows what he wants and nothing is going to stop him.I want to throttle Gavin, he is so selfish and such a spoiled brat but I also could feel his pain can't wait for his story. I received an ARC in exchange for a fair and honest review.

    This was a really good read. Would like to see another book about the Callahan family set a little further in the future just to tie up some loose ends. Loved the romance between Claudia & Brody and loved to hate Gavin & The Evil Queen. I received a free copy of this book and voluntarily chose to review it.

    Claudia may have started out with the wrong Callahan brother, but Brody doesn't care that she's the hired help. He wants Claudia, the whole package deal. Claudia is trying to do the right thing, but she can't fight her feelings for Brody. This twisted romance was amazingly sweet and antagonistic in turns. But through it all, they stood by what they wanted. I loved it!

    Wow! This was such a great story! It took me on an emotional rollercoaster, one I didn't want to get off of. Claudia and Brody were perfect for each other. I couldn't stop reading until I was at the end. It was very well written and a definite recommend from me.*I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book. This is my honest review.*

    I freaking devoured this book. I was hooked from the beginning. I love the story and Brody & Claudia. I hated Gavin. Something More is a swoon worthy story and filled with raw emotions. I could feel the connection between Brody and Claudia. I didn't want their story to end. I need more of them. I can't wait to see if Gavin can redeem himself. You'll want to read Something More.

The more she gets to know him, the harder she falls.The only thing that could shake up this couple is the secret Claudia has been keeping. But Brody has a secret of his own... he's in for the long haul and this isn't going to keep him away.Something More is a sweet, sexy, heartwarming romance that will captivate the reader from start to finish. Brody proves over and over again that he's a hero you can fall head over heels for.

I love that she didn't wilt under the pressure of having a baby on her own.The passion between Claudia and Brody sizzles of the pages. Their love grows over time and remains strong and true despite outside disruptions. Something More is a brilliant love story that can't be missed.

    THERE IS A SPOILER!!! I loved this book, however I did not like the ending. I kept on hoping that there was going to be a different ending than what I thought Ella Jade was going to write. Overall though, the book was great. I really enjoyed the two brothers' characters and Claudia. In the end, Gavin gave up his rights to his baby and Brody will be his father while Gavin will be his uncle. I just don't agree with that, for the baby's sake. The child, Jason, deserves to know who is real father is in the long run. Brody would raise him as a step child, but I think Gavin should still see Jason as his child. Not saying Jason should live with him on weekends or anything like that, but just so Jason knows his real father. I work on a mother/baby unit at the hospital, so I think that's why I thought so deep in this book.

    fairy tails can come trueIf you have read so many books you can predict the outcome and your looking for something different you must read this book. This book came highly recommended from a very reliable source and she couldn't have been more right. Brody is the all time price charming and he goes above and beyond the call of duty to prove his love for his sleeping beauty. There is not a character in this book you won't fall in love with even the evil queen of the book will have you by the end and you won't want to put it down once you start reading it I know I couldn't and when I finished I had to smile cause after all fairy tails can come true and your Prince Charming is out there waiting to rescue you

The way Ella wrote the characters and how the story line went I couldn't put the book down! this book will keep you in the edge of tour seat rushing to turn the page to find out what happens next! At first I did not like Gavin I thought he was just a spoiled rich kid who was ignorant and had no heart, but at the end of the story I had a change of heart! Now Brody! he is so sweet, caring, loving, and just so yummy!!!!! they way he treats Claudia is amazing and makes me falls more in love with him, especially bc a lot of men wouldn't do what he does! this is definitely a book I will be reading again and recommending to everyone!!!!

    How do you say no to an Ella Jade book? You don’t! :) I wasn’t sure how I was going to feel about Claudia. I could see the train wreck coming from a mile away with Gavin. Brody on the other hand, Oh my word. Is there anything hotter than a man that loves you no matter what your mistakes are? That is sexier than anything on the planet. I despise siblings that are vindictive and spitful. That is exactly what Gavin is. I wanted to reach through the pages and smack him around! The way that he treated Claudia was horrible, especially since it takes two to tango.I will never say no to a review of Ella Jade’s because she always brings me in and reminds me why I love to read.

    It was a really great story. Totally loved Brody. The only thing I had a problem with is how unrealistic Gavin's sudden change of heart was. It didn't seem to fit at all with his personality. Maybe if we saw more of the story from his point of view he would have been easier to understand. The story wasn't really about him but that one part bothered me.

    Liked the story, but felt that it needed just a bit more of an explanation as to how the events at the end came about... along with an epilogue to see how things worked out because of it. All in all, a great quick read for those who believe that sometime you find the right people at the wrong time.
