The Way You Are ( Carolina Connections Book5) by Sylvie Stewart is the fifth book in the the Carolina Connections series.i recommend reading the other books in this series as well ,although this can be read as a standalone.

I have to say I have a slight obsession with Sylvie Stewart’s Carolina Connections series. They are the BEST laugh out loud books that have a whole ton of heart that I have read in a long time. Each one of these books can be read as a standalone but I HIGHLY suggest reading them all!

I loved Brett. He’s up for having a relationship but just can’t find the right woman to fill that spot so he takes up time by living the bachelor life and playing baseball. Liv is a die hard fan and is a loud one at that. Her heckling has made Brett turn his attention on her and the sparks flew BUT she has a boyfriend. Being friends is all he’ll get but the attraction is undeniable.

I loved the characters and the witty banter they have. This was a delicious and hilarious slow burn that everyone needs to read!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Way You Are, by Sylvie Stewart, is the fifth book in the Carolina Connections series. This new adult/college romance was a fun and enjoyable read. Liv and Brett were hilarious in their interactions, friendships and overall beings – it was hard not to find these two characters unforgettable. A great addition to the series, The Way You Are, fit perfectly with Liv and Brett’s personalities. The camaraderie between friends was a riot and some of the hi-jinks were outrageous. However, there were serious points/parts within the story and the author over laid those with the humor perfectly. Sylvie Stewart knows how to deliver an exciting and pleasing story!

This is book five in the series The Carolina Connections but it can be read as a stand-alone. This is an easy going romance with not too much drama. I’ve been reading some intense books lately and this was a nice respite. This is my first book from this author and it was quite enjoyable. I will be looking forward to reading more of her books. The main characters were well rounded and likeable ( maybe not so much Troy). The secondary characters were interesting as well. I’m assuming they were in the books prior to this one. I liked that Brett wasn’t portrayed as a Greek god/ billionaire stud. He was good looking and fit but he was also pierced and tattooed yet wasn’t a “bad boy”. He was respectful, smart and had a good job. He is a walking contradiction. All this to say that I loved him. Luv was great, she made me laugh on several occasions. They both had amazing personalities with chemistry that continued to build throughout the story.

I was delighted with the baseball aspect of the story. I love baseball and football so when I get to read a book that involves either sport, I am thrilled. The humour and witty banter definitely made this a fun read. I highly recommend it.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Way You Are by Sylvie Stewart is book five of the Carolina Connections series. This book is Liv and Brett’s story. Once I started reading, I couldn’t put the book down.

Liv is smart and knows want she needs out of life. When she meets Brett, she immediately friend zoned him. She has her boyfriend and baseball, she’s good. That is until she realizes she’s starting to crush on him. Brett is used to being friend zoned. He’s always the friend. This time however, it’s not going to work for him. He has feelings for Liv and he won’t be just the friend. Will Brett get Liv to take him out of the friend zone?

I loved these characters and found myself rooting from them right from the beginning. They experience so many different emotions and turmoil, it was hard not to feel that with them. This book was great and I’m glad I read it!

The Way You Are by Sylvie Stewart is the fifth book in the Carolina Connections series. I loved this book for so many different reasons. First I loved Tambo, Liv’s dog. He made me smile every time.

Second I loved Brett, he wasn’t the stereotypical leading male character. He wasn’t a giant who’s muscles had muscles. What he was is a caring man who knows how to treat a woman. Any Mom would be proud to have him date their daughter.

Liv was funny and a proud baseball fan (Go Cubs!) who doesn’t allow anyone to intimidate her, well almost anyone.

It was great catching up with everyone and seeing where they are now in their relationships. I hope the next book comes out soon.

Number 5 in this series and I am still hanging on every word this author writes! Yes they can be all read as a standalone but they are all equally as amazing so highly recommend them too.
I love nothing more than a friends to lover’s story, I think friendship can be such a good base for a relationship sometimes and this story was just the most perfect example of that. Ms Stewart always manages to make me fall in love with her characters, they are always genuinely nice people and they feel like you are reading about your friends. I loved Olivia, she was so sweet and funny, and I can see why Brett was so enamoured with her! Brett, bless his heart, you could really tell how much Olivia meant to him, and in my opinion they were so perfect for each other. They had a really good chemistry that was genuine and not over the top, I was secretly rooting for them the whole way through. As with all of this authors books you can count on the secondary characters being brilliant and they were – they all add something to the story that make it so much more enjoyable to read.
As always I cannot wait to read more from this author in the future – she is definitely one of my go to authors!

Nice guys winning PLUS snort inducing laughter EQUALS winning combination. Stewart had me engaged immediately and I instantly was rooting for our “good guy” to get the girl. I absolutely loved the plot and the character development. I love a good book that makes me laugh. Relatable and fun, this book is a must read and one you will have a hard time putting down. Loved it.

5 Stars

I have read so many of this authors books and I think all of these in this series…I love them all..when I saw this one it was a no brainer….and it just might be my favorite of all of them…Well for today it is, I think in a small way each one holds that title.

Brett was awesome, so sweet and carried the friend zone title well, until he didn’t LOL Liv I think is my favorite kind of female lead..She had me cracking up and these people made me want to know them.

I love this author and her writing always grabs me at page 1 and I don’t want to put the book down and this one was no different, I read it in one sitting and actually tried to slow my reading so it wouldn’t end. I really want to go back and read all of these again back to back. I can’t recommend this book and this series and this author enough.

I will be the first in line for the next one.

Awesome!!

The Way You Are (Carolina Connections, Book 5)The Way You Are by Sylvie Stewart
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I couldn’t wait to get my hands on ‘The Way You Are.’ It kind of snuck up on me and my newsfeed as a new release just three days before it was to go live and thus hit my kindle and I have to say it was a long three days. But, I was grateful that I didn’t have a longer anticipation time lol. I absolutely adored the first four Carolina Connections Novels. Noting that this is the fifth book in the series, these are all written in a way that they could be read as standalone’s. However, the characters from the previous books also make guest appearances here and there, so that is a bonus!

‘The Way You Are’ was such a funny read. It balanced the perfect amount of romance and comedy just like we are used to seeing from Sylvie Stewart. This is partly why I absolutely can’t help but one-click everything from her. Of course the romance had the zing that made you want that tall glass of wine and a fan. Sylvie has a knack for that slow burn build up too! I could honestly gush about the writing for days but…. onto the goods.

OH, Olivia, Liv… I loved her. Sometimes I wanted to yell at her and others I wanted to cheer for her. A lot like she hackle all those players. Liv loves her baseball. She loves her boyfriend. At least she thinks she does. He is perfect. The ballplayer of her dreams. But, there is her best friend that is starting to look really good. Like, not just friend zone good.

Brett gives up. He really likes Liv. But there is that friend zone. He is infamous for it and really it’s just made it to the point where he is just focusing on his career and enjoying what and who he does have in his life at the moment. What will happen when his chance finally comes and the prince charming messes up big-time?
