Book Description

"You never lose faith in human nature when reading a Melissa Brown book. I believe a book often reflects that author’s general view on life and now after having read two of her novels, I want to keep ‘swimming’ in her unique brand of positivity. In true Melissa Brown style, we are given two characters to love, invest ourselves in, and cheer for. We are shown true heartbreak but we also stay confident that she would look after our hearts in the end. There is great joy and comfort in that. A book for the heart and from the heart, a beautifully narrated story that will feed every single romantic bone in your body."---Natasha is a Book Junkie

"With a mix of well written characters and a believable story line Champagne Toast holds your attention from beginning to end. Melissa Brown did not disappoint with this follow up and this book would be a great add to your bookshelf. For me this was a 5 star!"-Pam, The Book Avenue

"I'm still in awe that Champagne Toast is only Melissa Brown's second novel. I was completely impressed with her writing and story telling in Bouquet Toss and in Champagne Toast Melissa proves once again what a great romantic writer she is. Her stories aren't overly complicated and her words flow effortlessly as you get lost in her stories. As you read about Kate and Evan's romance you get a real sense that you're getting to know these characters in a personal level and you are right there with them as they fall in love, laugh, cry, and go through heartache. Melissa Brown reminds you that love is not easy. There will most definitely be ups and downs, good times and bad. But it's the love that goes through the toughest trials and tribulations that are worth saving and fighting for."--Debbie, Talk Supe

Kate Armour and Evan Maxwell fell hard and fast for each other while attending college. Their once passionate and loving relationship ended when old scars eventually tore them apart. Two years after their breakup, they're each struggling to piece together what went wrong in an attempt to move forward.

Kate, a no-nonsense bartender, must face her past while attempting to focus on her future.

Evan is stifled by his bitter heart, which threatens each and every relationship he attempts after walking away from Kate.

Will life offer them a second chance at love or are old patterns simply too hard to break?

4.0 out of 5 stars A Toast to Love January 13, 2013
By D
Format:Kindle Edition
EVAN!!!!!!!!!! Boom... Now that I've got that out of the way, let me tell you about Melissa Brown's Champagne Toast. I was introduced into Melissa Brown's world of writing when I found a hidden gem of a book called Bouquet Toss. Little did I know how much my reading world would be rocked. So needless to say, I was freakin' giddy like a school- girl when I found out there would be another book following Bouquet Toss. I remember messaging Ms. Brown, telling her how much I enjoyed Evan's character in Bouquet Toss. And he was a secondary character. I absolutely love his kindness, his openness and his sincerity. What I liked most about his character was that he was more realistic in that he wasn't an unattainable man. He wasn't fantasy gorgeous, he wasn't the bad boy that you will forever chase and never get. He wasn't intimidating with his sexiness. He was just Evan. Someone attractive in every way. Someone who melts your heart and just makes you feel good all over.
Champagne Toast is Evan's story. Evan and Kate. It is told from both characters point of views as well as recalling the past and living in the present. For this story, the varying POV's and timestamps worked really well in giving us a definite and vivid idea of where the characters were coming from and where they might be headed to.
Melissa Brown writes stories that warm your heart and make you believe in the beauty of love. There is nothing raunchy or dirty about her stories. I love that they just fill your heart and soul with sunshine. I love that she can put a lump in your throat and make a tear fall down your cheek. I love that you just feel content when you read one of her books. She writes stories that you don't expect would elicit the feelings or emotions that arise. Her books are thoughtful and sincere.
I would recommend Melissa's books to anyone looking for a wonderful love story. If Champagne Toast is on your TBR- bump it up. And if not, get on it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Prepare to fall in love with Kate and Evan! January 8, 2013
By C. Read
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It didn't take me long to sink myself into Champagne Toast.

Evan and Kate's story spans over a the years. I'm normally not a fan of past and present, but it worked so well with Champagne Toast. I was able to see how they fell in love, what attracted them to each other! The present shows where their mistakes have lead them, and how sometimes what we think is true, isn't always the truth.

I highly recommend this book!

4.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 Angst Filled Stars March 26, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Angst is definitely the name of the game where this book's concerned. Told from alternating points of view, this is the story of Kate and Evan. Its lights out, love at first sight for these two college kids when Evan comes to interview for a job at the bar where Kate works. It's not your everyday, "I think you're aces" kind of love. It's the kind of love that makes you protect your heart because if that love ever left, you'd be shattered.

Kate has issues. Issues with her difficult parents who want her to fit into a slot that just doesn't feel right. Issues with her own self worth and a dating history she'd rather forget. Evan, seemingly issue free at the start of the book, wants to help her learn to believe in herself and move forward but that proves to be easier said then done. Kate starts to open up and shares something that's occurred in every one of her past relationships, thinking Evan would appreciate the honesty. Unfortunately Kate's honesty comes back to bite her. As much as Evan loves Kate, there's now a little part of him that doesn't fully trust her. Add in Evan graduating and moving forward career wise, Kate's feelings of inadequacy and both of them trying desperately to protect their hearts and you have a recipe for disaster.

"You were never good enough for him." Poor Kate.

This is a story about coming back together as much as it is about being in love and in a relationship. Both Evan and Kate had a lot of growing to do before they could make the relationship work, but their love for each other was never in doubt. As sometimes emotional as this book was, it was also funny and real.

3.0 out of 5 stars Champagne Toast February 7, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I didn't enjoy this book as much as the first one. There's too much angst. In the first book, Evan's still pining for his lost love, Kate. This book details their entire relationship, from their first meeting. I couldn't really enjoy the story of their budding romance, knowing it ended with a separation. The whole time, I was wondering when it would happen and if/when/how they'd get back together. The story is very emotional and well-written, but it was very hard for me to truly become absorbed in such a sad story. The ending is nice, but there's so much lost time that it just felt incredibly sad.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good not great April 20, 2013
By L Barny
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I think the author had a good story going, until Evan said he didn't trust Kate. He said he thought she was cheating, then went away for two years, came back and had changed his mind again. I really think both of these people needed some serious therapy. With a few changes, could have gotten 4 or 5 stars. Loved the first half.
