    2. 3.25 3.50 RATING I feel like I ve been saying this a lot lately Maybe it s because I ve been reading a lot of debuts and books from newer indie writersI liked this story, but didn t love it There was a lot of potential but it fell short a bit of my expectations It wasn t bad but could have used some polishing and had some editing issues Room for improvement but still enjoyable I did like that the heroine was older 47 and disabled used a walker Parts of the writing, mainly the hero, reminded me a [...]

Overall rating 4.5 Peaches stars Triggers Cheating view spoiler no hide spoiler Love triangle view spoiler no hide spoiler Sex with om ow view spoiler No, but in the prologue, the hero THINKS he is calling his hook up friend I say it like that because it doesn t even seem like it s something he does very often but he is working on a case, so he calls the first number on his mind, who happens to be the contact in his case He realizes right away, of course, and doesn t care because he thinks this [...]


    5. Loved this book Don t want to give anything away.e you MUST read, but I will say this For a debut novel, Freya hit this one out of the park Normally when I hear disabled heroine, I think helpless and needy Freya writes Emma so brilliantly that you hardly know she has a disability at all She is strong and empowered and I simply love her Then there s Gus Holy hades upside down, THERE S GUS Hot, yummy, delicious Gus.Not to mention a little mystery and suspense Well done Freya Barker Can t wait for [...]

    7. Skimmed book so i would know what was happening for next book Hundred to One I didn t want to read because I didn t like the hero s ex f buddy being involved in the story.


    8. I liked the story and the characters, but I do not feel like I really got to know them and something was just missing I barely know anything about their backgroundske what happened to her daughter s father The action was ok, but unbelievable and he pulled a majorly stupid move in introducing the h to his current friend with benefits What a MORON


    9. This is such an inspiring book that will slowly work into your heart and emotions Was very refreshing to have two lead characters who weren t twenty and still hot and sexy Loved the storyline and characters and how the book flowed effortlessly Can t wait for Book 2 Great job Freya.


    10. Favorite Quotes Finally You get some action, and it has had to be from a stranger on the phone I m dying here Hells bells, if I didn t know any better, I d swear you were trying to give each other an endoscopy by tongue If I could, I would stop time, right here in this moment He never had known this kind of feeling before, but he was sure this had to be it A moment in time where everything could stop, just as it was and never change, and it would be absolute perfection This was it Happiness Who [...]


    11. Reviewed under Helen Stothard.I ve just finished this book as a beta read and I loved it Not only is the heroine a decent age, she s stubborn, independent and disabled, not that she lets this get in the way.It starts off with a hot phone call that left me wishing my phone would ring with a wrong number No such luck.It s a suspense filled story with interesting twists, and as someone who s done online bookkeeping I found it a believable plot line as well I m just grateful I never had clients like [...]

    13. This was a pretty good read I liked that is had a Kristen Ashley feel to it and I like an older H h The steamy parts were really well done My only dislikes were the switch from POV s didn t flow very well and it was a bit corny in parts I really didn t care for Gus referring to Emma as ripe but thankfully that died down a bit I am interested in the other characters so I will continue on to book two.


    14. I was intrigued by this one for many reason, but the biggest was because the couple weren t young, but firmly in their 40 s As I read I liked that Emma had a bit of a disability, wanted to know about that However at 20% I m giving this book up Part of it was I didn t care for the voice that the author had and didn t buy into the romance between the couple In the end this one wasn t for me.


    15. What a great debut book I love a strong heroine and a strong hero Both bring so much to the table There s a mystery to solve and love to find, can t ask for I enjoyed every moment and the twist blew me away, honestly didn t see it coming I m not done with you yet, Freya Barker Looking forward to the next book



    16. 4.5 Stars I m not done with you Wow This book took me by surprise I m not much of a contemporary romance reader I tend to stick to PNR because of the whole Mine mentality and since they are mates, there can be no others Needless to say, this book has caused me to become a fan Freya Barker took real life people and made a romance Emma has some limitations due to a disability, one many people struggle with every day She doesn t let it get her down I found her to be a very strong character It took [...]


    17. Slim to None is original, mysterious, sexy and absolutely amazing The most amazing thing about it is its characters Every character is strong, persistent, loyal, protective and so damn feisty The writing is indeed wonderful and the story is really good, but the the book s highlight is the characters The absolutely amazing characters Emma is an exemplary woman who has fought for her daughter and for herself She has faced awful situations with unrelenting strength and she just shows an outstanding [...]


    18. Well I expected this to be a great book after reading For Dust by the same author, and believe me it was great I loved the characters and how things developed between them.The main character Emma Young has disabilities which make her mobility an issue and she uses a walking frame, she is a very loving mother of 1 adult child who has been left behind when Emma moved away for a new start You have to love the fact that we have an older heroine in this book, instead of some young bimbo who always ge [...]


    19. 4.5 STARSSlim to None is an intriguing, sexy, fast paced suspenseful story.Emma is a real woman with real life issues Like many women, she is not feeling like she is up to par as a result of her disabilities and her current stage in life That being said she decided to put herself first and moved to her dream spot to be with a soul friend leaving her daughter Kara behind to live her own life Emma does not take instructions well and can be a little feisty Without knowing it Emma finds herself in t [...]


    20. To be honest, I was a bit turned off to learn that the characters were older than your average romance novel cast but once I got a page in, I was totally hooked It was a breath of fresh air to read about people who know what they want and can communicate like adults Let s just skip the angst and the relationship nail biting and tell it like it is Freya Barker creates these wonderful real world characters that you want to befriend and know about Emma s strength is empowering and her snarky frien [...]


    21. So refreshing to read about a mature couple This is a fairly fast moving story with action scenes.Gus and Emma meet in the most unusual circumstances LOVED it What cracked me up was when Gus put his team together just proved that men think or don t think so differently than women.I look forward to meeting of the characters introduced in the story.


    22. Something different and I loved it Gus and Emma are not what I expected I love these two together Emma, strong, feisty, and not a woe is me person Gus, strong, attentive, and gentle, which makes him very sexy Thank you for something different Freya


    23. I loved this book It has believable characters and a smoothly flowing story I loved that the characters were not perfect Characters had flaws and imperfections that were shown and celebrated I can t wait for the next book



    24. I really enjoyed this story I love that it was about an older couple and was kind of unique This was hot but also a really sweet love story Looking forward to reading by this author.


    25. Where the fuck do I start this review Because wow Just Fucking WOW.The Cedar Tree series which I have just read back to back is outstanding Freya Barker is just crazy ass talented and I m totally fucking overexcited with my discovery and wanting the world to know, this means in my usual fashion the profanity when excited goes into overdrive, leaving me swearing like a sailor with tourettes, however as her writing is so flawless and overwhelmingly real whilst also being hot as fuck see I told you [...]



    26. When I discovered that this book was being released by someone I really liked but had no idea was a writer I was delighted for her while at the same time quite intrigued I have to admit, before I read the book I had some trepidation, what if I didn t like it How could I possibly tell her and hopefully not upset her Well I have to say that my worry was totally unnecessary, I honestly loved Slim to None Freya s writing and storytelling had me pulled me in from the start As I was reading I could cl [...]


    27. Considering it s got Cedar Tree Series Book 1 attached to the name tag, I m hoping that there ll be of these books.I followed Gina Sorelle s FB link to this book and I m delighted I m not giving 5 stars because for a first time novel as I think honesty is necessary and there were one or two small things that stole that 5th star While the general editing was very good in my humble and inexperienced opinion, there were one or two places that things small things needed a little sprucing However, f [...]
