S'more to Lose Reviews

“I devoured this book in only one day!” – Lisa Loves Literature


S'more to Lose is even better than its predecessor and I can't stress that enough. It is the kind of book you read in one sitting, armed with a hot drink and a snugly blanket. There was something a bit more unexpected about this second installment that I couldn't quite put my finger on it.” – Book and Broadway 


“Merlin gives off Sophie Kinsella and Emily Giffin vibes only with an execution of plots that is all her own. Fans of the two authors will appreciate the prose and relationships and style of this series. They will, of course, recognize it is something all Beth Merlin…. (Merlin is totally going to grow in popularity. I'm calling it.)” – Book and Broadway


“S’more to Lose by Beth Merlin is a fun story filled with hilarious romantic mishaps of Gigi, the heroine. I think every career woman can relate to Gigi’s success story.” – The Eeny Meeny Neen 

“This is a more complex story than the first book with more detailing around the emotional relationships. I’m intrigued to see where the author will go with book 3.” – British Bookworm

“What I did not expect was to fall completely in love with the series for the second time, and even though it ended with a cliffhanger that left you pulling out your hair (at least it was to me), I wouldn't trade those hours reading into the night for anything else.” – Dreamland Teen Fantasy 


“There is just so much to love. Overall, this was a great continuation to a brilliant, light narrative. I don’t know how I’m going to manage to wait for book three.” – To Be Read
