My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Stepping It Up by Bea Stevens is the second book in the Liberty Lawrence series .The trials and tribulations of Libby continues in this fun book. She is now working as a reporter for the Daily Chronicle but is having a hard time getting into the system at work. Her boss runs everywhere and she is not feeling very welcome.
I am glad to read about Libby again. She is full of fashion and has a habit of falling into odd situations. This is a fun read that had me laughing at the exploits. This can be read as a standalone but trust me start with book one to get the back story of the characters. The characters are more developed in this book and have all grown on me. Also, the story flows and moves quickly. This is a great read to get away from the everyday. I look forward to more Liberty Lawrence in the future.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Best Foot Forward by Bea Stevens is the The Liberty Lawrence Series . Liberty aka Libby is a fun, fashionista who works in a hotel. What happens when there is a theft and she has a possible suspect in mind? In steps a handsome officer working the case that she finds herself being attracted to more and more. This is a cute, lighthearted story. If you are label conscious you will find that you are familiar with the brands that she is mentioning. Despite that I find Libby to be a fun character. This story made me laugh which I really enjoyed. There are some silly escapades but I grew to care about what would happen with Libby. Also, when I finished the book I was already wanting to jump to the next book.

Stepping it Up (The Liberty Lawrence Series book two) By Bea Stevens
4 STars!!!!

I just found myself getting lost in this book. I couldn’t put it down. I found the author’s writing style to be quite addictive. I really found the characters to be realistic and relatable. I really found myself routing for Libby. I really enjoyed how the author was able to entwine enough drama and just a hint of romance to keep you glued to the pages.

I like how Libby is down to earth and how her character feels real. The drama that unfolds in the book just adds to it and keeps the reader interested. I also like how Libby and James have their ups and downs and how they really pull out of them and seem to grow stronger. I was a bit anxious when it came to James’ ex but it seems that even that drama couldn’t bring them down. I will definitely be reading more from this author and hopefully this series.

My rating: 5 out of 5 stars

This is a wonderful book. There is drama, mystery, romance, and humor all throughout. The story is sweet and flowed very nicely.

Liberty or as she is know by her friends, Libby, is a good friend and a hard worker, but she gets on my nerves sometimes. She is very self conscious when it comes to dating, and she overthinks everything. I love that she wants to investigate the theft for real with her best friend Cassie, and they seem to be on to the person responsible, until there not.

I really like Detective James Harper. At first I thought he was going to be a jerk, but then he turns it all around on me and makes me love him. He doesn’t believe Libby when she tells him who she thinks the thief is, due to her having a very personal issue with that so called thief.

Connor. Libby’s boyfriend Conner also works at the hotel and has recently been spotted hanging out and being way too friendly with the bar maid Bianca. I believe Conner thinks he is God’s gift to women for the way he acts and some of the suggestions he makes regarding his relationship with Libby and his relationship with Bianca!

The ending had me smiling. I was surprised at who the thief turned out to be and the way Libby’s life was turned around. The ending was a beautiful wrap up to such a good book, I could not put it down. I would definitely recommend this book!

My rating: 5 out of 5 stars

The second book in the Liberty Lawrence series is just as great as the first book. This book can be read as a stand alone but, I think it’s better to read the first one too, to get the background of some of the characters like Tom, Cassie and James.

In this book it seems that Libby is in all sorts of trouble and is getting the blame for everything that happens. She is now working for the paper and is going after stories with her partner Dave. She can’t stand working in the department she is in because there are some snotty girls and then Dave she has to deal with, the only bright side, she gets to be near her friend Tom. Libby still overthinks everything, as she usually does, and gets into trouble more than a couple times with jumping to the wrong conclusions.

When she meets James’ ex-wife Suzanne things start looking grim for her future relationship with him. There is a nice loud argument between Suzanne and Libby at a gala that turns things from bad to worse and, it seems Suzanne will be sticking around because she is trying to sell her and James’ house, but she doesn’t realize she is being conned. James has to spend a lot of his money and time on this case and it is wearing on his relationship with Libby.

James’ ex wife Suzanne is a real piece of work and some of the things she says or thinks she is owed makes me want to slap her. I can definitely understand Libby’s frustration with the situation, but also I am confused why it is taking so long for James and Libby to push forward with their relationship. I loved this second installment and have a feeling there will be a third, and I can’t wait to see what happens next with this hot mess they are all in!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What can I say, I fell madly in love with this series from the get go. Liberty is one of those characters that is completely relatable and you have no choice but to love her on site.

Her new job is a reporter and unfortunately its not all cracked up to what she thought. Chandler, the guy she’s supposed to shadow runs everywhere which prove to be rough on her shoes. Not only that, but he sneaks off without her. The girls in the office don’t necessarily like her plus she crushes on doesn’t seem to notice her.

These book are seriously addicting and completely relatable. I’m impatiently tapping my foot for book 3!

Best Foot Forward is the first in the Liberty Lawrence series by Bea Stevens. This was such a light – hearted, fun, enchanting, perfect binge read for the weekend book. I was completely captivated from the get go and was so excited to jump into book 2 next.

Liberty has to be one of my favorite Heroine’s. She loves her fashion but she has a clumsy side that us so easy to fall in love with. She is the junior manager at a London hotel where her boss’s office has had a theft. She’s quite positive she knows who it is but the hot as all get out detective doesn’t really care what she has to say about it.

There was not one thing I didn’t love about this book. Miss Stevens did a beautiful job setting up the building blocks for this series and I’m dying for more!

My Rating: 4 of 5 stars

Stepping It Up (The Liberty Lawrence Series #2) by Bea Stevens was a fun light hearted read that was both entertaining and a little bit crazy.

Picking up close to where the last book left off, we follow Libby once again on her mischievous adventures and her quirky way of navigating life. This time she’s at a new job, trying to workout a new relationship and trying not to get caught in anything that might get her caught up into something messy like in the first book.

Like the first book, the writing is solid, the flow smooth and the tone matched the atmosphere. I found that Libby had more character development in this book, and I actually enjoyed her character even more. Sure there are some predictable moments, but nothing that made me like this book less. As this is book two I do suggest reading the first book, as there is needed background and character intros that will help guide you in this read.

Overall I had a time reading this book, it was a perfect weekend read that left me all happy and fuzzy on the inside. So please take my high recommendation and my stamp of approval, that you will fall in love with this quirky rom-com.

Happy Reading

Stepping It Up, The Liberty Lawrence Series Book 2 by Bea Stevens

5-Stars

Stepping It Up by Bea Stevens is the second novel in a series following the life of Liberty Lawrence. This novel continues the story from the first book and I do not recommend reading it as a standalone. She starts a new career in this novel and it was wonderful following her as she adjusts to her new position and also to her new romance with James. There were many surprises in this novel for her. I love her character. She is fun, caring, practical, and funny. Some of her comments had me laughing out loud. This was such a sweet easy romance to read and get lost in as well as having a little mystery in it. I look forward to following this character I. This series and reading more from this author.

After thoroughly enjoying the first book in this series I was really looking forward to reading book 2 and I absolutely loved every second of it! I thought it was just as well written and the story was great. I was hooked from the very first page and was completely swept up in the author’s writing.
I still absolutely love Libby; she is such a funny and genuine character to read about. I love that she still had her obsession with shoes and fashion. Again, she provided a lot of entertaining moments and I really do think the author has created a wonderful character – this is one of those books I can imagine being made into a really enjoyable chick flick!
I am so excited for book 3! I cannot wait to read more about Libby and her entertaining life!!
