Blog Tour: Room For More by Beth Ehemann

Title: Room for More
Author: Beth Ehemann
Release date February: 20th 2014 

Four years ago, my dreams were shattered in an instant.

Three months ago, I found something I haven’t had in years.


That hope came in the form of a sexy, carefree hockey player named Brody Murphy. He swooped in and won me over with his big heart and the way he cared for me…and my girls. When they look at him, they see the father they’ve never had.

Now, my past and present are colliding and the outcome might just be too much for me to bear. Can I make the right decision when I’ve spent my whole life making the wrong ones?

5 Fantastic Stars by Jen Skewes

I absolutely loved Room For You.  But that one word at the very end left me with me in shock thinking "Holy Crap are you kidding me?" So to say I was excited to read Room For More is a complete understatement.  Room For More is one book that I could not get my hands on fast enough.  While I was so excited to read it there was also a small part of me that was very nervous.  I wasn’t sure how this was going to go.  Well let me say that Room for More was amazing.  It was everything I could have hoped for and more.  Beth Ehemann did not disappoint with this book.

When we first met Kacie she was a single mom of twin girls who had been hurt by love in the past.  The hurt and pain that she felt years ago caused her to put walls up and be afraid to give love another try.  But after meeting Brody Murphy that all changed.  She fell in love with an amazing man and had everything she could have hoped for.  Until her past unexpectedly walked back into her life again.  Zack is back and that means that Kacie has some decisions to make.  Some very difficult decisions and while I may not have been happy with one of them I completely understood.  Her past is about to collide with her future and I think that fear started to take over.  Fear of losing what she had.  I loved Kacie and regardless of some of her decisions she is a very strong and independent young woman.  She certainly struggled with her decisions but she also knew that despite everything that happened to her in the past she had to think of her girls and what was best for them and I completely admired her for that.  

Let's talk about Zack!  I can honestly say that I did not hate him as much as I thought that I would.  I didn’t fall in love with him either or really feel sorry for him that much but I didn’t hate him.  I mean the truth is he left Kacie and his beautiful twin girls by leaving a note.  Is it even possible to forgive someone for doing that?  Zack made mistakes and there is a moment where he made a decision that I honestly respected him for, because at that moment I think he owned his mistake and realized what he lost.    So no I didn’t love him but I tolerated him and was happy with the decisions made. 

Of course I am saving the best for last and we all know that the best is Brody.   He is just pure perfection in every way ( I mean read the excerpt below and you will see how mazing he is).  Brody Murphy is real and genuine and so is the love that he has to give.  He loves Kacie something fierce.  The love and devotion he has for her and the Twinkies will completely melt you heart.  He is truly an amazing man who loves those girls as if they were his own.  He would do anything to protect Kacie and her girls.  But  Brody’s love was not just about Kacie and the girls.  He is a family man and he loves his parents and his sister.  They are just as important to him as Kacie and the twinkies.  Some people love the bad boy hero who has no relationship with his parents and is so damaged by his childhood.   But for me I love a sexy hot athlete who has a close relationship with his family and would do anything to protect them.  That just makes them sexier in my book.  Especially when that sexy athlete is Brody Murphy.  That man is sexy, adorable, loving, sweet, totally swoon worthy and completely amazing in every way.  And if you thought you loved him in Room For You, just wait.  I didn’t think it was possible but I fell in love with him even more.

Room for More was simply fantastic.  As I mentioned earlier I was a little nervous about reading this one because I was not sure where this story would go.  There were so many questions running though my head.  What will happen with Zack?  Will she forgive him?  Will he want Kacie back and if so will he get what he wants?  How will Zack being back affect Kacie and Brody?  Will they live happily ever after and have little Brody’s?  See I drove myself nuts with all the scenarios in my head.  And no I am not going to go into any further detail regarding the story itself or what happens because that is something that you will have to find out for yourself.  There is a lot to this story that I do not want to give away.  But I will say that every minute of this book was amazing, from the first page to the very last.  I devoured this book in one sitting because I just could not put it down.  You will fall in love with Kacie and Brody all over again!

Brody and Kacie certainly have some obstacles to overcome.  Obstacles that may test their relationship and their love.  What I loved about this story is how real and true to life it was.  The obstacles that they faced were never too much or over the top.  They were obstacles that I think a lot of people can relate to and have dealt with in their own life.  There was the perfect blend of drama, angst, and romance.   There were even a few twists in there that I did not see coming that caused an uneasy feeling in my stomach.   I got a little choked up at times and even cried on more than one occasion. And then there were those sweet and innocent moments where you will completely melt.  I have become so passionate about Brody, Kacie and the twinkies.  I was completely caught up in their world as if I was a part of it.  I felt every emotion that they went through, from fear, to frustration to love and devotion.  I was so passionate about this series that every time I thought about this book I got butterflies in my stomach.  I think when you become that passionate about a love story such as Brody and Kacie’s it has everything to do with the story and the author who wrote it.  Beth Ehemann has quickly become one of my “go to” writers, because I WILL READ ANYTHING that she writes.  Her writing is flawless and she writes in such a way that you will be completely engrossed in this love story that you just want to ignore everything around you.  She has created characters that you will simply fall in love with.  Characters that you wish for just one moment you could hang out with.  You will become wrapped up in this story and never want to put it down.  It was that awesome!

Room For More is the perfect conclusion to Kacie’s story.  It will completely capture your heart in so many ways.  From the sexy hockey player to the two adorable and loveable Twinkies.  You will laugh, cry, completely swoon and end up with a smile on your face for days.   And the epilogue was fantastic and complete genius.  Beth Ehemann scored a hat trick with this one - sorry I just couldn't resist the hockey reference.  But anyway the message here is; READ THIS BOOK.  I promise you will not regret it.  But make sure to read Room For You first.  Amazing, amazing job by Ms. Ehemann.

Just as a side note I am so excited for Viper’s story.  While he is a complete man whore I saw a sweet side of him in Room For More and loved how he was there as the voice of reason for his friend.

“Good morning!” I bounced into the kitchen.
“Hi?” Mom said, turning to face me from the stove. “What’s with you today? You’re unusually perky.”
“Nothing. Just excited to see Brody tonight.” The girls had already finished eating and were coloring at the island as I walked over and kissed them on the tops of their heads.
Mom rolled her eyes and chuckled. “It’s only been a couple days since you two have seen each other.”
“I know.” I went over to the stove and scooped up some scrambled eggs on my plate before I sat with Lucy and Piper at the island. “I’m pathetic.”
“A little, but it’s sweet.” She winked at me.
“Wait! Before I get too excited, is there a guest room available tonight?”
Mom turned back from the stove with a blank look on her face and stared at me. After a second she pulled her brows in and tilted her head to the side suspiciously. “Did he not tell you?”
I was confused. “Tell me what?”
A slow grin grew on her face and she slowly shook her head. “Oh, that boy. You better hold on to him, Kacie.”
“What are you talking about?”
“When he told me about you being uncomfortable, um—” She glanced at the girls and back at me. I could tell she was trying to speak in code because of them. “—being roommates at night, I told him that he was welcome to a guest room anytime he wanted one. I said I’d save one for him.” She walked over to the island and put her hand on her hip while I continued shoveling eggs into my mouth. “He insisted I not be out any money because of all this, so he prepaid for one guest room for an entire year. Three hundred and sixty-five nights.”
My mouth fell open as my fork dropped to the plate, making a horrible clanging noise. “He paid for a whole year?
She nodded. “A whole year. He’s crazy about you, Girl, and clearly confident in your relationship—at least for a year.”
“Be right back!” I jumped off the stool and ran to my bedroom, grabbing my phone off the nightstand.


My foot tapped impatiently for two minutes, waiting for his response. Finally, my phone beeped.




Beth Ehemann lives in the northern suburbs of Chicago with her 4 crazy kids and her husband, who’s also a big kid most of the time. She loves reading, photography, martinis and all things Chicago Cubs.
