Stepping It Up (The Liberty Lawrence Series Book 2) by Bea Stevens – Review by Tracy Wilkin

Stepping It Up (The Liberty Lawrence Series #2)Stepping It Up by Bea Stevens
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Stepping It Up is book two in the Liberty Lawrence series by Bea Stevens. Even though this is the first book I have read by this author, and I have missed book one, I have read nothing but good feedback on this series, and knew I would enjoy it regardless of what order I read the books.

Libby is a reporter with a sassy, quirky outlook on life. She feels a bit isolated in her new job, and is having trouble connecting with colleagues and superiors. This story shines a light on so many dilemmas, starting a new job, trying to make a good impression on the bosses, finding love, and so much more. I had many moments of laughter, frustration on behalf of Libby, contentment, astonishment. I was constantly impressed, speechless and out of breath. Never did the author give me a moment without something dramatic to read. A never ending plethora of pleasure. 4 stars.

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.

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.

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

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!!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Stepping It Up by Bea Stevens is a four-star read that will twirl you round. This is the second novel in the Liberty Lawrence series and it’s just as if not more charming and funny as the first one in the series, I would recommend you read them in order as you do get to meet a lot of characters and you get the most when you read them all, the underlying nuances that you may otherwise miss. Libby is so much fun, I don’t identify with her in many ways apart from the clumsiness and the shoes. It’s light hearted and witty and overall very fun, she tells a great story and one you will enjoy.

Stepping It Up is Book 2 in the Liberty Lawrence Series, but can totally be read as a stand-alone but to be honest with how enjoyable this book is you wouldn’t want to skip book 1.
This is a such a fun, Light-hearted romantic comedy read you can’t help but be intrigued and captivated with this read.
I absolutely loved Libby second time round, she seems even more relatable and lovable. This book is a feel-good read that is funny, captivating and utterly brilliant from start to finish. Bea Stevens has created such a wonderfully written book that flows, has incredible characters and a plot that is great throughout.

I can’t wait to see what other journeys this author takes us on, this is a read not to be missed!
