      *****FIVE STARS*****ARC Generously Provided by AuthorI didn’t have a home until she came into my life. She gave me one without hesitation as if she’s been waiting for me all this time, knowing I was meant to be hers. I touch her cheek just to remind myself she’s real.Yet again I am left in awe of the writing talents of Kristen Callihan. I don’t think there has been a book that I’ve read of hers that I haven’t loved. MANAGED was one of my most highly anticipated books of 2016 becaus [...]

    4. He isn't cold or unfeeling. He's just hiding. I want that unleashed - all that strength and simmering emotion he holds beneath the surface.➦Okay. So. I'm delighted to read a story about a hot arrogant man in a suit any day. Gabriel here also has an accent so naturally, le #swoon.➦This series revolves around the band Kill John and it's members. Gabriel is one of the guys but he isn't a musician - he's the band manager. And although he thinks of the band as his family he still keeps everyone a [...]

    5. ::: FULL REVIEW NOW POSTED ::: “The second you are out of my sight, I want you back where I can see you.”*SWOOOOON* This sexy opposites-attract romance begins on a plane, is set against the backdrop of a rock band's tour, and I just loved it!! The snappy, witty banter kept me laughing, the heart-warming romance kept me swooning, and the healing and hotness rounded out the story so well. To be honest, there's probably more great banter in the first few chapters than in most whole books!! The [...]

    6. ****4.5 STARS****Let us first talk about sexy ass Gabriel for a moment please….This man is beautiful, just fucking beautiful. It’s really not fair if you think about it. He has the sexist accent (as far as us American think).I’m a sucker for a British accent – I even my my husband read some of Gabriel sentences so I could listen to his words come out of another Brit’s mouth. I’m sure he wants a divorce now!!!But here is the thing, Gabriel knows he is sexy as hell but he doesn’t giv [...]

It's Live!!Why is it the most wonderful experience we can haven also cause us to feel so much painIt must be the universal question because in Real life as well as in Fictional Lifehaving experienced Love, leaves the biggest mark on us all.

    8. *****5 Stars*****“I wasn’t prepared to need you this much. I don’t know who I am anymore if you aren’t with me.”One word springs to mind when I think about this book and that is AWESOME! The dialogue in the book is quick witted, the characters have a charm about them and their banter was superb. This was an incredibly hilarious read and I was constantly laughing out loud (and I mean that, literally). After falling madly in love with the first book in this series, “Idol”, I just cou [...]

    9. 5 Chatty Girl's Sunshine StarsReview @ Vanilla & Spice BooksGabriel "Scottie" Scott is "Kill John's" band manager. He is the person who keeps things in order. His firm control over all aspects of his friends' musical carrier is also symbolic for the control he has over his emotions. Guarding his heart has become second nature to Gabriel and the walls he has built around it are impenetrable. It is not that he doesn't feel but admitting is what gives other people an in to hurt you.I know witho [...]

    10. This book was absolutely delicious. Delicious!I FLOVED this story. Gabriel Scott was so damn yummy in his beautiful suits and cufflinks. Sophie Darling was such a fun character and the perfect balance to Gabriel's very structured persona. I just adored them together. The sexual tension between the two of them was absolutely palpable and I craved it! The touch of angst toward the end seemed a bit ridiculous, but I don't shy away from angst in a book and it was quickly resolved. This contemporary [...]

    11. 5++++++++++++++++++++++ "You're my warmth" stars should have a special feature for this kind of books. The "there are not enough stars in the sky to rate this book" feature. That's the only rating that would do this novel justice.It was so, so, so good. Tugged at all the right strings. I knew I'd love Gabriel from book 1 and not just because of his resemblance to mr. God Among Humans himself. His character was outstanding, so round and loyal to the man we'd come to know in Idol, yet surprising. [...]

    12. The five stars are for, well:1. Each and every character in this breathtaking book2. Sophie Darling aka "Chatty Girl", and Gabriel Scott aka "Sunshine". The best Book Couple of 2016!3. The laughter. Oh Gosh, the laughter4. Kristen C, for creating Sophie, who has to be one of the funniest and most lovable female characters of all time. 5. The Rock Stars. Come on, I mean who writes Rock Stars as secondary characters? Only KC, and she totally made us fall in love with themW, I CHOOSE JAX! (Yes, bec [...]

    13. …I think I started Managed with rose coloured glasses on.***4.5 Stars***After reading Managed, I’m trying to imagine how I would react if David Gandy sat beside me on a flight to London. OH MY LORDY!! Besides major heart failure (and possibly some drooling), I can honestly say that I would probably pretend to be asleep through the whole flight. See, even though I think Mr Gandy is ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS, I know there is NO WAY IN HELL I’d have the courage to talk to him. What if…I was 20 ye [...]

    14. How do you know that you feel relaxed-happy with someone? How can you tell that you have this rare feeling of safeness?1. When you sleep with her with complete abandonment, oblivious about what is happening to the outside world.2. When you eat from her plate like it is the most natural thing. 3. When you feed her, because you are worried about her and you want her to feel good.Gabriel Scot does not like socializing, but then he meets Sophie who is a very friendly, lively, social girl:And after t [...]

    15. It is not often that a heroine over shadows a hero in a book and becomes the character I liked the most. But Sophie was such an amazing character that I honestly still would have loved this book even if Gabriel wasn't in it. Now don't get me wrong, Gabriel was still a great character and I loved him. Yet it was Sophie that took me from liking this book and made me love it. She was fun and colorful and had me smiling through the majority of this reading experience. For her alone I would be recomm [...]

    16. Title: ManagedSeries: VIP #2Author: Kristen CallihanRelease date:November 14, 2016Cliffhanger: NoHEA(view spoiler)[Yes (hide spoiler)]I've been a huge fan of this author for some time now, she's an auto-buy for me. But this particular book was one of my most highly anticipated reads this year. After reading Idol, the cranky band manager Scotty with the movie star good looks had me completely hooked and begging for his full story. He's snooty, he's got a fortress around his heart, and a tongue li [...]

    17. 5+ stars!Review at Of Pens and Pages.Sophie Darling is on a flight to London for a job interview, and it seems luck is going her way when she gets upgraded to first class. She also gets seated next to someone who could be on the cover of GQ. Handsome, English, but standoffish, Gabriel "Scottie" Scott, the manager of one of the biggest bands in contemporary music, finds himself seated next to a bubbly and vivacious blonde on a seven-hour flight. Even after paying for two seats, he has no choice b [...]

    18. OMG I laughed so hard!! I laughed so many times, in so many ways, and for so many really fantastic reasons. My fave scenes took place on the plane early in the book. Those scenes were off-the-charts hilarious to me. When Gabriel and Sophie meet on that plane ride it just really set the tone for their relationship and this story. I really just enjoyed every minute of this book!I didn't have a favorite character because both mains were awesome. But if I was forced to choose, it would be Gabriel. I [...]

    19. Girls, if you don't have a Gabriel Scott please put up an add and look for one!This is my second Kristen Callihan book and I think I found a new favorite. After reading Killian's story everybody told me that Gabriel's will be so much better, with more drama, steamier scenes and a more delicious package. Well thank you so much, everyone was right!!! Gabriel and Sophie meet on a plane, during one hell of a bumpy ride. Sophie seat is changed to VIP, next to Gabriel's, leaving them to cope with each [...]

    20. 4.5 Sunshine Stars****soooooo ahhh Scottie I love Kristen callihans books they always great reads for me, I get addicted to her words, high on the chemistry between the characters, and then add that with a music band you get fireworks. I just love this series so much. Plus Scottie Scottie, who doesn't just love a broken hero??!! I remembered Scottie back in Idol as the cold hearted, tough manager of Kill John yet I kind of wanted to read him unravel, come undone and fall for someone who is worth [...]

    21. 3 HERO IS STIFF SHIRT STARS First I will say Yay I loved the heroine. Her name is Sophie Darling and she is a complete darling and I loved her. She is sassy, funny, and more than capable of giving as good as she gets. She is very sexually experienced and makes no apologies for that. “I have sworn off hookups, as I’ve concluded they’re bad for my mental health. I’ve dealt with too many dick biscuits to continue with casual sex”She made mistakes but she owns up to them and tries to make [...]

    22. I love this series. All characters are to fall in love with! Great story, damaged hero, smooth-tongued and funny heroine. What's not to love? Probably just the wait for the next book!About the plot: It started with a flight from hell. Sophie Darling is flying to London for a job interview with a small amount of information for who she will be working. She is a photographer and works in social media. When she gets upgraded to first class, couldn't believe her luck. Until the moment she has to sit [...]

    23. 4.5 Stars1st things first. Gabriel Scott is a GOD and I need him to be real a person so I can claim him and smother his stuck up snooty sexy self in my love.I always adore Kristen Callihan’s writing and Managed was no exception. This book focuses on Gabriel “Scottie” Scott, manager of the band Kill John (whose lead singer is the hero fromIdol – VIP Book #1) and Sophie Darling, who was one of the most sweetest, sassy, and outspoken heroines.The sexual tension in this book was NO JOKE. I w [...]

    24. Th-The. The COVER!!!! --------------------------------------------- Release Date?? Release Date!? RELEASE DATE!!!! NOVEMBER 14,2016!! ----------------------------------------------(June 09, 2016)SCOTTTT SCOOTTIEE SCOTTIEE BOY!We will be together soon!

    25. 3.5 StarsOverall Opinion:I feel like this deja vu for me in regards to how I felt about the first book, Idol. I LOVED the first part of this book! I loved the witty banter, the chemistry, the grumpy hot H and the awkward funny h! I was on my way to having a 5 star read! Then, sadly, it fizzed out. I got antsy about waiting for them to actually get together. While I loved their friendship and their banter, I just wanted them to get it on ;)! It took until 73% for them to kiss for the first time!! [...]

    26. ☆☆☆☆4 Chatty Girl Stars☆☆☆☆Gabriel Scott and Sophie Darling were not your ordinary couple. Their banter was foreplay, the attraction that they had for one another was palpable, and when these two got together? It was freakin HAWT. But make no mistake, Gabriel was not the easiest person to be around and managing one of the biggest rock bands in the world came with a lot of responsibility and a reputation for him being known as a hard ass. But little does he know that one plane rid [...]

    27. Oh wow!! I just finished up Gabriel and Sophie's story, and I LOVED it!! Maybe I was in the right kind of mood for this; but I literally don't have any complaints about this one. Honestly, this is a story I could read over and over again!! I fell in love with everything about these two! Their banter was hilarious, and the build up to their sex was absolutely divine!! By the time they finally did the deed, I was on the edge of my seat drooling!! Ha ha, seriously.I was zoned right into the moment [...]

    28. :::4.5 Stars:::I felt like Kristen Callihan gave me everything I wanted in a hero. That asshole type attitude, with that subtle hint of a dangerous undertone, handsome as sin, polished hero that took my breath away! Call me shallow, but yes I Sher am a sucker for the British accent! Yep #noshame! Gabriel Scott is simply breathtaking. He's not one to mess with. His standoffish attitude and his distant and cold demeanor makes even the hardest edge person come undone. And guess what? I LOVED HIM!!! [...]

    29. “I am a cold man.”Frigid indeed. Gabriel “Scottie” Scott, manager of the infamous rock band Kill John, is known for his controlling nature and icy demeanor. In “Idol”, book one of the VIP series, he did not give me the warm and fuzzy ‘oh so easy to fall in love with’ feeling. Regardless, his detached persona totally fascinated me. When “Managed” popped up on my kindle, I could not wait to jump into this story to see firstly, if I could warm up to his character and secondly, m [...]

    30. 3.75 -really enjoyed it- StarsI am normally super impatient when it comes to slow burn books, but because the sexual tension and smouldering looks were scorching hot in this story, I didn't mind the burn as much as I thought I would. I really enjoyed myself with this story and would have given it a solid 4 stars, had it not been for the final conflict twist and the mediocre HFN (view spoiler)[although we do get a proposal in the end, so I won't complain as much (hide spoiler)].Told in dual, firs [...]
