Review

"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

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.

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!

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.

I just didn't get the writing at all. It was back and forth in time and switching between Kate and Evan, so it left me confused. Sorry, but I skipped most of the middle and felt misled by all the good reviews. Perhaps it's just me!!!

Kate Armour and Evan Maxwell meet when he comes to the bar where she works to find a job to help put him through college. They both feel the magnetism at first sight, but Kate has a boyfriend. That doesn't last long, and soon she and Evan are a couple. Evan is everything she's ever wanted, but she doesn't have a good track record with relationships, and she doesn't think she's good enough for him.

I didn't think Kate was good enough for Evan either, but she could have been. She was so wrapped up in herself and hung up over the fact she didn't think her parents loved her as they should. Her life ended up being one big pity-party, and she was secretive, snappy, hard to get along with, crude, self-centered, and almost slutty. Never once did I see her care about Evan more than herself. Besides the physical connection, I really couldn't see what made him love her. There was some pretty heavy cursing throughout the novel, too, even g.d. and the "f" word, and there were graphic sex scenes and more graphic sex scenes. I didn't even like the sequence of the story. It starts with the present, and we know that Evan and Kate have called it quits. Then, it goes to the back story of when they were together for chapters and chapters--most of the book, in fact. Since I know what is going to happen, that they aren't going to work out things in this part, it's not nearly as interesting to me. Alternating chapters from Evan's and then Kate's points of view told in first person wouldn't have been my choice, either. I've never seen the word "swooning" used for flirting, and there were other mistakes, such as "with Patrick and I" and "roles of film." The bad times for Kate and Evan went on for way too long. I liked short sections of the book, but, all in all, it left a bad taste. The story line was good, but not the execution.
