    1 thought on “Willow Springs

    1. 2.5 stars I m bummed I wanted better for Logan and Amy s story They were life long friends, and I normally love a friends to lover storyline, but I didn t buy this romance It was sudden, confusing, and not all that romantic of a story After a drunken kiss between these two, Logan and Amy suddenly start to develop romantic feelings after years of being just friends Unfortunately half the story is of them analyzing and fretting over their changing feelings I had hoped for some unrequited love by a [...]

    2. Well, Toni Blake has done it again Much like Robyn Carr and her tremendously popular, down home Virgin River series, Toni Blake has captured the mood of small town Destiny, Ohio life with her vivid characterizations, natural dialogue, and picturesque setting Reading a Destiny novel is like slipping into a pair of your favorite worn jeans after a stressful day very comforting and relaxing And while this story may not be my favorite of the whole series as far as wringing the emotion out of me that [...]

    3. 3 stars Contemporary RomanceI m a big fan of Toni Blake s Destiny series and friends to lovers storylines, so I was really looking forward to Amy and Logan s book And while I enjoyed the comfy familiarity of once again visiting small town Destiny, Ohio and spending time with its endearing characters, I was disappointed with the romance this time around.The H h pairing of town good girl and resident matchmaker, Amy, and her hunky firefighter lifelong best friend, Logan, had potential for a great [...]

    4. There is no charm equal to tenderness of heart Jane Austen, Emma Full review now postedLogan WhitakerWillow Springs is the fifth book in Toni Blake s Destiny series, and one emotional story I ve never shed so many tears while reading any book as I did with this one, and it s not even story of hardship, illness or death This is a tale of first love and all the pain, heartache, hope and joy that comes with it, even when that love doesn t find you until you re 30 years old.From the cover This loves [...]

    5. Willow Tree I have mixed feelings about this one I received it from a GRs friend who tossed it into the package with something else she was mailing me I love stories of small town lovin and upon cracking the book, couldn t put it down until later Then I could, as it became a bit repetitive The main characters, which I liked at the beginning, kept harping on the same issues This is what we all do with the people we love, but still And Amy and Logan have certainly loved each other since the sand b [...]

    6. 2 Awkward Stars What was this I m still scratching my head I finally found the time to continue this series and I was so disappointed with Amy and Logan s book There was a point when I seriously considered putting it aside I did continue, not because of Amy and Logan, but I was hoping to find out about the other characters in the series Amy was a pain in the ass, and OMG wah wah wahwhat a Debbie Downer Loganez, I don t even know what to make of him Okay, I understand that he went through a traum [...]

    7. As much as I wanted to love this book, it ended up falling flat for me I was sooooo looking forward to Amy and Logan s story I knew there d be awkward moments, but I didn t anticipate Logan ripping Amy s heart out with his indecision and constant wavering, not to mention taking an open interest in another woman while poor Amy looked on After reading and loving the rest of the series, this just wasn t the story I wanted for either Amy or Logan.

    8. Really a 3.5 rating I had higher hopes for this book because there was mention of Amy and Logan in previous books in the series I do love me a friends to lover story but this one falls short Amy is absolutely adorable in this book I love her transformation from a shy woman to a woman who goes after what she wants However, I was not impressed by Logan Yes, he cares for her but his feelings appeared lukewarm all throughout the book He would do something stupid in one moment and then try to redeem [...]

    9. Rating 2.5 5I guess I m in the minority that didn t particularly enjoy this book It wasn t a bad book, but it just didn t really work for me.Series Note Fifth book in the Destiny series about a small Ohio town and the people who live there.Summary Amy Bright and Logan Whitaker have been friends since childhood But when a tragedy strikes Logan while working as a firefighter, it leads to a kiss that changes everything Amy realizes that she wants from Logan than just friendship But she s not exact [...]

    10. 2.5 stars sigh This book just did not work for me on so many levels I m just really disappointed Logan was an unlikable character almost the entire book I couldn t figure out what any grown woman would see in him He s like a child who s distracted constantly by something shiny Never stops to think about anyone but himself and then is shocked when this bothers other people He s like a frat boy or a teenager and, personally, I don t want to read a sexy romance about a juvenile.Amy, while a little [...]

    11. Originally posted HERE.This was a reread for me, and I enjoyed it all over again after a few years since my last read.I ve always enjoyed this perfect as a standalone book I know extremely empowered , extremely confident women are supposed to be all the rage, but Amy seems like a much rounded, realistic character to me, and I like her.As the heroine of this story she is the typical nice girl, the one who does everything for everyone and they just take it for granted and overlook her However, sh [...]

    12. Amy Bright is Destiny, Ohio s bookstore owner, cat care giver and the local matchmaker She is helping her two best girlfriends prepare for their upcoming weddings, while trying to get her new cat Austen acquainted with her old cat Mr Knightley In the midst of all this her best guy friend, Logan, is going through a tough time and she is trying to get him to get his life back in order But in an unexpected moment Logan kisses her and changes how she sees him and herself If that wasn t enough to kee [...]

    13. The ending of this was all I ve come to expect from Toni Blake s best books The heroine has a revelation about what price she should and shouldn t be willing to pay to be with the man she loves and she calls him on his wishy washiness I was cheering when she told him that she deserved better.Unfortunately, that wasn t enough to save this book from the misstep in the middle At least not for me When the hero finally tells about the fire that traumatized him enough to stop being a fireman, the even [...]

    14. 2.5 I have loved this series, LOVED it but this one really fell flat for me First of all I just didn t Get Logan as the romantic leading man He reminded me an awful lot of my high school boyfriend but Logan is a grownup I suppose I have to be honest and admit that the way he kept calling her honey grated on my very last nerve too For some reason a man calling a woman honey just isn t sexy to me At.All The whole idea of them having been best friends their entire lives was intriguing, and I really [...]

    15. It s no secret that I m a huge Jane Austen fan And the character of Amy in Toni Blake s Destiny series with her penchant for Austen, and her cat named Mr Knightly, is one whose HEA I ve been waiting impatiently for Leave it to TB to give me that HEA with a fun and sexy modern re working of Jane Austen s Emma wherein Amy plays Emma to her BFF Logan Whitaker s Mr Knightly There are so many elements here to love Logan is supersexy if a bit frustrating not unlike Mr Knightly Amy is sweet, if frustra [...]

    16. DNF I made it into Ch 13 the day after Amy s Big Night This book was so deeply unrealistic and conveys messages that are so repugnant to me that I really couldn t go on.Amy, owner of the local bookstore and unofficial town matchmaker, is shy It sounds like she s got a pretty poor self image, hasn t had a lot of opportunity or desire to date, and just never met a guy who clicked, so she kind of gave up on the dating scene Now in her mid thirties, she remains unattached with no prospects, and that [...]

    17. Wow, I can t believe I was thrown straight back into the little country town of Destiny Falls And it felt so right, as it does every time I read a Destiny novel I m never let down and I wasn t with this one either.This time we are sharing the story of Amy, owner of Under The Covers book store, renowned cat lover and town match maker Amy has watched everyone in town find and fall in love, and slowly but surly all marry off until now it seems that she is the last one left But she doesn t mind, she [...]

    18. 3.5 StarsShy Amy Bright is the town matchmaker and has helped her friends on their path to romance, but at 34 years old it seems like it is a case of Always the bridesmaid, never the bride But one drunken kiss with her best friend Logan Whitaker changes everything and Amy can t stop thinking about him in a new, and thrilling way, could it be the man she is destined to love is also her best friend This is the first book I have read of Toni Blake s and I really enjoyed it Although this is the fift [...]

    19. Lee s review posted on Guilty PleasuresARC ReviewWhen I got the chance to review Willow Springs, by Toni Blake I was beyond excited If you are like me, you have been waiting to see what was going to happen between Logan and Amy for a while Ms Blake did not disappoint with this book.Amy and Logan have been friends their whole lives and up until a tragedy occured for Logan, neither one ever thought of the other in a romantic way Now it s the only thing that is on Amy s mind and the new emotions sh [...]

    20. This book ran flat for me A lot of that is because Amy s actions seemed very junior high I get that she didn t have much experience with men, but not being able to talk to Logan and having to resort to notes seemed preposterous to me For crying out loud, she didn t even know what to write, Tessa had to direct her in the dirty things and those weren t dirty at all I also was annoyed with Logan for a good portion of the book He was flat out rude and not caring that his actions hurt Amy I can see [...]

    21. Over all I liked it but I tend to like everything I read because it takes me away I liked catching up with the prior charactersMike and Lucky I really didn t care about reading Amy s story prior to the bookbut then learning how she was always the little sister type I was that person growing up so I read it There was a lack of Logan POV and that was a little odd, right He was the hero afterall I did not like girl from the past at all and I didn t feel badly that Amy had ill feelings for her and [...]

    22. I have read just about everything Toni Blake has written as herself and as Lacey Alexanderd loved it all until Willow Springs The heroine is absolutely pathetic she has no life, no personality and the idea that she is going to snag the hot guy is totally unrealistic I couldn t make it past 80 pages.

    23. I thought the novel was nicely thought out, it dealt with big problems that could easily happen in the real world I was happy when I finally reached the ending, however I wanted the heroine to turn out pregnant but perhaps they will mention her in the next novel.

    24. Logan drove me nuts I thought Amy deserved wooing Disappointed in this book, but gave it three stars because I still love the series.

    25. 2.5 starsI am a huge fan of the friends to lovers trope I love watching friends see each other with new eyes I had high hopes for Willow Springs because I am such a fan of the friends to lovers storyline, but the story and the characters were a disappointment.I haven t read the previous books in the Destiny series so I don t know if I had a problem with the story because I wasn t invested in the characters and their HEA Amy is known as the town matchmaker She is great at finding love for everyon [...]

    26. I liked the latest book in the Destiny Spring series It was good to catch up with everyone and see Rachel and Tessa marry Mike and Lucky Anna Romo s sudden appearance back in Destiny was a huge shock for everyone I was so happy for the Romo family, especially Mike who has struggled with his guilt ever since she was abducted I loved that she was back in time for Mike s wedding, but she got a lot of face time in this books I would have preferred if she had been the heroine and receiving so many pa [...]
