The Way You Are (Carolina Connections Book 5) by Sylvie Stewart – Review by Maura Harper

The Way You Are (The Carolina Connections, #5)The Way You Are by Sylvie Stewart
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the fifth book in the “Carolina Connections” series and can absolutely be read as a stand-alone.

As with the other stories in this series, THE WAY YOU ARE is a classic rom-com. The story has a great group of friends, romance,new beginnings, and a dog that is almost bigger than the MC.

This is a quick story with a smart woman, a not “classically alpha guy”, a couple of ball players, and a character who (like me) is obsessed with Olivia Newton John.

I absolutely recommend this author, this books and this series.

The Way You Are By Sylvie Stewart, A Carolina Connections Novel

5-stars

This was a sweet and hilarious romance. I could not put this book down. I loved both Brett and Liv’s characters. This book can also be read as a standalone. From friend zone to crush, mixed in with a little baseball, the two have their own battles to handle a long the way. The storyline was easy to follow and I loved that Liv was a vet. Brett’s personality was awesome. He reminds me a lot of my husband. Excellent novel!

4 Stars

The Way You Are by Sylvie Stewart is the fifth installment of The Carolina Connections series. This story is a romantic comedy about Liv and Brett. Liv is not only beautiful, she smart and her boyfriend is a local baseball player. She meets Brett at one of the local baseball games her boyfriend and cousin was playing. Brett is handsome and always placed on the “friend zone,” girls always see him as great friend. As the saying goes, girls can’t be friends with boys, might just backfire on Liv and Brett. Will the opportunity arise for these two to finally hook up? Sylvie Stewart writes a seamless storyline that captures you attention from the beginning, from the chapter titles to the sarcasm. Characters are well developed and easy to hate or love, depending who they are in the story. I have read other books from this series and I enjoyed reading this installment. I recommend reading from the first book to learn more about each of the characters that are represented in each book.

Five Stars

The Way You Are is the fifth book in The Carolina Connections series by Sylvie Stewart. This book can be read as a standalone, but I don’t have one reason why you would want to skip the first four. They are all excellent reads with all the feels, and this story is no exception. This book had me hooked from the very first page and I stayed up half the night finishing it (definitely worth losing sleep over). This book features Liz and Brett’s story. It is witty and sweet, heartwarming and heartbreaking at time. I’m totally drawn to these characters and Ms. Stewart really makes you feel like you are right there with them. I love it when a book makes me laugh out loud or reach for a tissue and this book fitthat requirement. This is my favorite of the series so far, and I really can’t wait to see what Sylvie Stewart will dream up for us next.

5 out of 5 stars

The Way You Are is the fifth book in the Carolina Connections written by Sylvie Stewart and I have read every book in this series and I loved them. Ms. Stewarts writing just gets better with each story/book. The characters are crazy but fun crazy that feed of the crazy. They are well developed and we even get to see our favorite couples from the first few books.
Brett MacKinnon, is a nice guy and a frequent resident of the friend zone. He has terrible taste in woman. So when Brett hears this tiny little girl with the booming voice he goes and talks to her. He is determined to ditch the friend zone and show her he is boyfriend material. Too bad the position’s already been filled by a ball-playing caveman who could flatten him with his pinky.
LIV: There are really only three things she needs in life: sex, baseball, and winning. Her hot boyfriend and season tickets take care of the first two, while she always do her best to cover the last. So developing an unexpected crush on a new friend is more than a little inconvenient. She doesn’t have anything but friendship to offer Brett, but with the way he looks at her, and makes her feel things he has her wishing she did.
BRETT: Has been put in the friend zone so often, they’ve got a sandwich named after him. You’d think he’d be used to it by now. But when it comes to the delectable Liv and he will pull out all the stops to show her he is the guy for her.
Can Brett get out of the friend zone what will it take for Liv to see him more than a friend? You will have to read this great book to find out.
I highly recommend this book/series…

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

The Way You Are is book 5 in the Carolina Connections series by Sylvie Stewart. My first read by this author, and what a merry dance I was led on. A refreshing change from the dark and twisted stories I love so much.

Brett MacKinnon always comes in second best, which delegates him to the friend zone. He has this charismatic personality that just makes him too sweet and the ladies just don’t take him seriously. To go after his lady love, he needs to toughen up, take charge, or risk getting left behind.

Liv is a feisty little lover of sport. A very strong personality does she possess, and she is not afraid to go after what she wants, that is of she really knows what she wants. She was hilarious and a true pleasure to get to know.

The Way You Are was brilliantly written, engaging, arresting, riveting. A storyline that draws you in immediately, and the ending comes far too quickly. A charismatic cast that will undoubtedly entertain anyone who picks it up and reads it. A fantastic 5 star story.

I loved this book and will now be reading from book 1, as this is book 5. It can bw read as a standalone, but I just want to know more about this group!
Brett was so great but the poor guy gets friend zoned, often from what it seems like. And when he meets the perfect girl at a baseball game, they hit it off, until she says who she is there for. Can he get out of the friend zone?
Liv is a tell it like it is, feisty woman. I really loved getting to know her and the crazy of her life.
These two were great with a great group of friends along the way too!

The Way You Are (The Carolina Connections, #5)
By Sylvie Stewart
Rated 5 stars

How enjoyable is this story!! I loved it! The witty banter, the secret longing and the sexy beard…all good reasons to devour this book! Olivia is a hoot! She sure has a mouth on her! She cracked me up at the games! Brett seems like not the type of guy she would go for. His outward appearance might have people shy away or look down on him. But I side he is a golden boy! He has this great big heart. We get to see and spend some time with Gavin and Emerson. They really help the story move forward as does Haley, who is Olivia’s best friend.

This isn’t my first book by this author. I have read all of the others in this series. They all have a little fun, some sexy men and strong sassy women. I love reading this series and look forward to the next one!!

  • The Way You Are by Sylvie Stewart is the fifth book in the Carolina Connections series. This book can be read as a stand-alone even though characters from the previous books do pop up here and there.
    For me this was the first book I have read in this series and I am now questioning why. This book is brilliant. It kept me thoroughly entertained throughout. I was laughing my way through at these characters. And I think part of that was because of how relatable I found them to be. Not only was it easy to imagine these characters and their troubles but it was easy to imagine yourself in their position, experiencing exactly what they were going through.
    The author really pulls you into the story and helps you to become a full part of it: I cannot recommend this book highly enough and I am going straight back to start again at book 1!View all my reviews
