I am just going to get straight to the point. I loved loved LOVED Standing By. I think I might have even liked this one more than Getting By, and I adored that book.Oh to have a Knight brother in your life.Getting By was Jake’s story, Standing By is Mitch’s (Jake’s twin brother). My next book boyfriend? Why yes, yes he is.Hayley owns a bakery called Pieces Of Heaven. She’s known Mitch a bit in the past and always thought he was an arrogant a$$, which he totally is arrogant in a completel [...]

4.5 stars! I was very eager to read Mitch's book. He played a vital role in his twin brother Jake's romance and I was excited to see how he and Hayley would get along. I was expecting them to be antagonistic but the fireworks I was expecting them to give off never really manifested. Instead of hot and spicy, I got sweet and sensitive with a dash of spice thrown in. I liked Hayley and Mitch a lot, so it was easy to get sucked into the story. I liked how they played off each other but when the tim [...]

You know you are enjoying a book when you realize your face hurts because you have been smiling for a while. Also, when all of a sudden you break out laughing like a hyena while reading a scene where the characters OOOPS! No spoilers here! Let's just say the banter and interaction between our main and peripheral characters is full of fun, mischief, and most of all endearing moments.This is Mitchel and Hayley's story. He the self proclaimed eternal bachelor with a nurturing spirit and she the wo [...]

Now they have to find a way to work together so tha [...]

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.I enjoyed reading Hayley and Mitch’s story. Hayley has always worked hard and is determined to make her bakery a success. All the while trying to deal with her dysfunctional family. While Mitch has several successful restaurants and the support and love from his family. The one thing that Hayley feels she doesn’t have. As the story unfolds you can see their feelings start to change and grow for each other. I thought that th [...]

4 starsAwe Man, this book is all kinds of crazy. This is the kind of book that you go into thinking you know what is going to happen, then you start it, change your mind about what's going to happen next, then are completely baffled because it is the complete opposite, but you get enjoyment from it anyway. I will start with Mitch, because I liked him more. Mitchel is the type of guy who gets around a lot with the ladies (if you know what i'm saying ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ) and thinks love is completely [...]

Complimentary copy provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.Hayley is the owner of her own bakery and the utter disappointment of her entire family. Her parents never married, she is the result of her father’s extra-marital affair so most of her siblings, as well as her father’s ex-wives, have regarded her with distaste. Her own mother holds her to a higher standard, constantly criticizing her looks, her weight, her clothes…add to that her father thinks that she has wasted h [...]

Standing By is just one of those books that crawls into your heart before you even know it. It grabs your attention with its fun loving characters, instant physical attraction and humorous one liners. This is just one of those reads you will continue to remember, long after you have turned the final page. It wasn't love at first sight for Mitch and muffin girl (that's just one of the infuriating nicknames Mitch thinks up to play with Hayley), Mitch was all about fun, nothing like love would hold [...]

This is a book that would have been perfect for First Impression Friday! This book was a whole load of confusing at the beginning. Seriously, talk about a crazy, messed-up family! I honestly couldn't keep track of who everyone in Hayley's family was, there definitely needs to be a family tree at the front of the book!Hayley comes from a very rich family in New York, but she's not the average rich girl spending daddy's money. She broken away from the family expectations and opened her own bakery, [...]

Each Knight Brother is more and more wonderful. Here we get the story of Mitchel Knight and how he falls for Hayley. Mitchel thought love was not for him. That it hurt you that is until Hayley steps into his world again and even than he fights it. Hayley is the girl who only wants someone to care and to show that she can make it as a owner of a bakery and be successful.How are they thrown together-the guy who has nicknames for Hayley and the girl who finds him arrogant? Her brother sells his res [...]

Danita's Thoughts:Standing By was the first book I've read by this author and it was a great read. It grabbed me from page one and before I knew it I was done with the book. It left me wanting to read the first book of the series.There was a physical attraction between Mitch and Hayley but it definitely wasn't a 'love at first sight' for them. They were total opposites. Haley was serious where Mitch was living in the moment. He was all about having fun. The last thing he was looking for was love [...]

Hayley pulled at my heart strings. Claudia Burgoa built this story so that you truly felt like you were friends with Hayley and you understood all the crazy issues that had shaped her life. The family unit that Hayley functions within is bizarre – her Dad never married her Mom but she has siblings from 2 other marriages that he did have, this has left Hayley always believing she wasn't wanted/loved since her Dad never married her Mom. Her Mom, well, I don't know how anyone survives Caroline bu [...]

This book was fun to read. I loved Hayley. She was so feisty and full of life. She refused to back down from what she loved and fought for those that she did love. Her family was and is a mess though. I mean what Mother treats her daughter that way? It was a weird thing to witness and read. I wasn’t to fond of many of the characters. To me they seemed a little far fetched and cold. I can understand one or two being that way but all of them? Liam was my favorite sibling. Everyone else just seem [...]

I absolutely loved this story! The style of writing and story development was quite matter-of-fact and fluid.Hayley is a baker from a wealthy family of successful careerists. She has a brilliant mind but chooses to follow her passion rather than a staid career. She pursues an independent life, without the trappings of her upbringing. She is constantly striving to please everyone related to her, not least, her selfish, overbearing mother and her loving but critical father - to the detriment of he [...]

4.5 StarsI think Claudia took a step up with this second book! I didn’t see any of the problems I saw present in the first book. It was a fast-paced read, and I couldn’t put it down! I felt a full array of emotions while reading, too. There was angst, excitement, sadness, romance, and plenty of comedy, too. I love how Mitch’s story felt so completely different from his brother’s as it should have. I also enjoyed seeing the growth that took place with the characters. Hayley herself strugg [...]

Hayley Roth-Welsh comes from a family of wealth and she dressed the part, finished school with the highest GPA, extra credits for College and could get into any Ivy League College she wanted to, but that changed when she turned 18. Hayley decided to take charge of her own life and open up her own little bakery called Pieces of Heaven. Hayley's family thinks it is just a hobby and that she will fail. Hayley's family is also very messed up and all she wants is to make them happy and for them to ac [...]

I received this book in exchange for my honest review.I've just realised that this boos is the 2nd in the series, I did not read the first but don't feel like it effected my enjoyment of this book. Well where do I start with this plot??!! Poor Hayley has the most dysfunctional, over achieving family I have ever encountered or read about. I am not surprised that she had issues having grown up in several different houses, with several different 'step moms' and crazy siblings. All of her ex's turne [...]

This book was a great surprise! This is the story about two completely different people, that together complement each other.Hayl is a fabulous baker who owns her bakery and struggles to stay firm in business, without her family supportShe has many personal problems when it comes to family.And I have to say , they ate a real nightmare!When her brother sells his restaurant , which she supplies with her goodies, she is forced to deal with the new owner, Mitch, an old friend of her brother, who she [...]

Everyone should know by now I'm a huge sucker for family book series.First, we had Jake Knight in Getting By, twin to Mitchel Knight and the Knight brothers quickly hooked me.Jake Knight is well on his way to finally marrying Emma, while Mitchel Knight is out growing his empire and staying as far away from love as he possibly can.Haley Roth-Welsh is living part of her dream, but her family constant disapproval of her wears her down emotionally and then to top it all off she has to deal with the [...]

posted at coffeebookslifeblog.wordpress3.5 StarsTake a fly by the seat of his pants kind a guy and a girl who lives by taking notes and keeping lists. Throw in a lot of snark, sarcasm, some push and pull, you get two people are so perfect for each other.Mitch and Hayley have a bit of a bumpy past together. Causing a bit of animosity between stubborn people. They are alike but in opposite ways. Kinda hard to explain but very funny to watch. For people who did not want to be around each other, the [...]

This is Mitch and Hayley's story. Mitch is the twin of Jake whom we met in the first book. I must admit I wasn’t a big fan of the first book in this series. Maybe it was that I didn’t gel with the characters. This book was much better! Some of the banter between them was hilarious and the situations they got themselves into!! Their love came from out of nowhere.e slow burn was there, there was no insta-love, but also they seemed to slip seamlessly into love, that I almost missed the crucial [...]

4.5 starsIf you're looking for a story that's funny, endearing and frustrating (in a good way), this is it. No Spoilers. Hayley is a by the book, making lists, follows a plan to the "t"'kind of girl. Mitch finds himself on her "bad" side by breaking one of her rules. They get thrown together when Mitch buys her brothers restaurant. Hayley and Mitch find themselves spending more and more time together because Mitch is determined to make Hayley like him. Adding more dimensions to the story is the [...]

Full Review at: What's Beyond Forks?Standing By is the second book in the A Knight's Story series by Claudia Y. Burgoa. Like the first book, I absolutely love the Knight brothers. Mitch is no exception. I don't think there were ever two more stubborn people than Mitch and Hayley, and now they've met their match in each other. They butt heads from the start, and it is so funny to watch. Standing By had some unexpected drama mixed in with the humor, and I was pretty entertained from start to finis [...]

I received this book in exchange for an honest review. I really enjoyed the characters and the plot. The story was both complicated and yet simplistic that i was an easy and fast read. I found myself torn with loving and hating characters which makes for a good anxiety driven read. I wanted Muffet (loved the nicknames!) to toughen up where it counted finally and heal emotionally but at the same time I felt she had a strong personality but chose when to use it, ultimately making herself vulnerabl [...]

I received a copy for an honest reviewHayley works in her bakery Pieces of Heaven; has difficulty dealing with her dysfunctional family Mitch, the selfproclaimed eternal bachelor, bought his friend Parker's restaurant, which relies for pastries on Hayley's shopI already met and fell in love with the Knight family in Getting By, so of course I needed to find out Mitch's story I would definitely recommend reading Getting By first, since I feel it added a great deal to the charactersBy the end of t [...]

I am adding Claudia Y. Burgoa to my author list!!! Loved this bookStanding By is written with a lot of humor and another hot hot did I mention HOT Knight Brother!!This story is about Mitch Knight, and Hayley. they are like oil and water at first Mitch is just SO arrogant! lol but of course we all know that its just another way to get under a girls skin!! and then you add a drunken night in vegas then an element of danger and BAM!! You get MITCH AND HAYLEY!!It definitely wasn't an easy journey to [...]

*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*Hayley had a rough upbringing and still deals with family drama that doesn't seem to disappear. Mitch doesn't do relationships and believes that love is overrated. I absolutely loved the banter between Hayley and Mitch. The characters are funny, hardworking, dedicated, and have issues. They fit well together. Hayley's family is just plain crazy and emotionally abusive. Luckily with Mitch by her side she learns to tap into her inner [...]

*** obsessed by books arc given for an honest review ***Mitchel is your typical bachelor sexy, and oh so full of himself. Hayley is seeking her independence and self worth in the world. These two fight like they are already married. Mitch has bought her brothers restaurants , which to Hayley that's were 50% of her income comes from. She is not happing knowing that Mitch being the new owner they will have to work together and it will not be easy to work with the arrogant Mitch Knight. I loves thi [...]

Loved this book. The main characters have good chemistry. There is just enough of the supporting characters to get to know them, without them being overwhelming. The flow of the story is superb, as is the plot. There is lots of humor with some mystery. I love how Claudia handled a sensitive topic without letting the heroine seem like a nut. She handles her problem in the end and comes out better for it. I can't wait to read more in this series. I received a free copy in exchange for an honest re [...]
