This was such a great story overall but it was written so poorly. I am not a writer or an editor, just an avid reader.
I found this book to be all mixed up; sometimes in the present tense and sometimes in the past tense, often
times in the same paragraph. I appreciate independent authors and first time novels and would normally
read other books by the author. With all due respect to the hard work it obviously takes to publish a book in any
genre, this one needs some serious revisions before I would consider another by this author.

This story was a little dark at times but enjoyed the developing story of Harper & Rye. A girl who had to overcome a very troubling past to believe in herself & find happiness.

1st: Ryder is delicious :). Good book, but I agree the past (dreams) & present tense were a little distracting especially out of no where crazy sick things start to happen. Very explicit love scenes....450 pages!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Sharing Harper is an awesome debut novel by V Murphy. Harper runs from Chicago to start a new life in San Diego. She’s been hurt time and time again and refuses to let herself love anyone or let anyone know about her past. Harper meets Ryder at the coffee shop where he works. There is an undeniable attraction but Harper doesn’t want to acknowledge it. They both have deep secrets that can either make or break them. I loved that this book was different in that Harper isn’t some naive girl. She is troubled and uses men and partying to numb herself. It was really well written and kept you interested and guessing until the very end, I couldn’t put it down. Definitely add this to your TBR list! ~Kendra with For the Love of BooksWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Review: The settings that Harper is in jump out at me for their vivid descriptions.
The flow of the story line is like a choppy current in a large ocean of feelings. It was an up and down emotional ride that at times I thought I would be sea sick, but then Harper would pull at my heart strings and I would be back in the book next to her fighting my emotions I thought I buried deep inside.
I screamed at Harper every time she pushed Ryder away when he tried to save her. He was her knight in shining armor in all of the trash pain.
The point-of-view is from Harper’s and I wonder if it could be better by having it in a combination With Ryder’s point-of-view. The writing style was an alliance of witty and colorful wording. It was breath taking to read each and every word. I believe having this seen as Harper’s point-of-view lets you feel her pain and happiness more than any other point-of-view.
The ending was what I was expecting and not expecting. Harper grew as a character throughout the book more than I expected her to do, which shocked me. Ryder opened up very quickly at the end, too quickly for my taste. As least another chapter was needed.
Quote: “Did you cheat on your husband?” I asked.
“I wasn’t cheating on anyone who I loved or who was in love with me. Sometimes love is deeper than what your brain tells you love is. Real unrequited love is something that cannot be explained in words or pictures or movies. It’s something so ordinary that it becomes extraordinary. But I was scared. I was like you; I was scared of falling for someone that wouldn’t be able to pick me up after I left my husband.”
Another Quote: “Sure I'm alone here, but I have my home, my books, my store, and my friends. I have moved on from the life I thought I had. My heart still lies in the south with John, but my real life is here. Sometimes we just gotta wake up in the morning and face reality no matter how bad you wanna spend the day in bed," she said while fixing herself in the small handheld mirror we had behind the counter. "Anyways, the bottom line of this story is that sometimes we love someone so much that it hurts to love them. Sometimes it's unexplainable why someone walks into your life. Most of the time it’s at a moment where we desperately aren’t looking for someone to save us, but they happen to understand that deep down we need someone to share a life with."
"The take home message from all of this is that you need to follow your path. No matter where life takes you, there is a reason for that path, so you follow it. Follow it all the way home Harper. Do this and you'll find your rainbow. Hey, maybe you'll even be greeted by a[…]”

I'm not sure what to think about this book. It had huge potential to be an epic story. Unfortunately it fell short. I think the author focused too much on the sex and not enough on building the story. Don't get me wrong the sex scenes were hot but i would have liked better character development. Also this book is in dire need of a good editor! But for $2.99 it's worth a read.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Received ARC from author for honest review.
I absolutely LOVED Sharing Harper! I did not want to put it down for anything, and like I said to V. Murphy, "Well you did a wonderful job! I could not put my kindle down for anything! My boyfriend dragged me out golfing so I was riding in the cart until I finished!!"
The situation with Harper is real life and you can see why she chooses to live the way she does in regards to booze and boys. You want to knock her out of it, so she will have a chance to be happy but Harper doesn’t believe in love anymore. When she meets Ryder, you instantaneously know he got under her skin and wouldn’t leave her thoughts.
Ryder Andrew Kent, the man who messes all that up for Harper. Ryder is a man that she actually trusts, a man that she actually wants to see when she wakes up in the morning, and a man that she could picture herself falling in love with. But ultimately a man with his own dark hidden secrets, which Harper can’t live with.
I kept going back to Evelyn though and wanted to know who she was to Ryder. I didn’t figure it out until close to the end which was awesome. Usually I figure things out early on in the book, but with Sharing Harper I had a couple guesses that kept going through my head and I couldn’t just pinpoint one.
I’m really glad how the book ends, and could have easily been a great standalone book because it really didn’t house any cliffhangers. Knowing that this will be a series though makes me super happy, because I know that there are things that could be elaborated in future novels. V. Murphy, you better get writing!!! I can’t wait to read the next installment of Harper and Ryder’s relationship!
I am going to give Sharing Harper 5+ stars, because it was truly amazing and will be added to my favorite list. I have already purchased my paperback copy!! I will make sure that all of my reading friends read this book! I will even take all ereaders as hostages until they finish! That is how amazing this book was.

I was completely blown away by this novel. While reading I did nothing but eat, sleep & breath Sharing Harper. So obviously, to say that I loved it is a HUGE understatement. Harper isn't your typical heroine and that's what makes her so awesome. Not that I'm encouraging her tramp-like behavior but its refreshing to see a lead female character in that role instead of the typical womanizing male. Not that there's anything wrong with Ryder, I absolutely adore everything about him. Especially the fact that he saw a damaged beautiful woman with obvious issues and didn't run in the other direction. Instead he ran towards her and was determined to win her over. Yes he has secrets of his own, but it doesn't take away from him being the wonderful jaw-dropping God that he is! Harper's personal growth is noticeable throughout the novel. Ryder did some growing of his own and it was nice to finally see them open up to each other and accept one another for what they are, faults and all and work towards something very real & maybe even permanent. I really enjoyed the writing style and thought the story flowed seamlessly. The characters were well developed and even though most of them had trust funds or where filthy rich in other ways they seemed like your average joe, making them real & relatable. I definitely look forward to reading more books by V. Murphy!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I really enjoyed this book!! The moment I picked it up I was hooked and could not put it down. I read the book in about a day or so. Ryder and Harper are like two lost souls that find each other. Ryder is such a loving and caring man. Their love story will have you laughing and crying and even yelling in places. I can not wait to read more by this author.Was this review helpful?

I picked up Sharing Harper after a few friends recommended it to me. Its genre is not one of those that I typically read, but I had some free time and decided to give it a chance.
I’m glad I did.
Sharing Harper is a very well written book that makes it difficult to put down once you’ve started reading it, if not impossible. I feel that the characters are believable and that their issues / conflicts are very relatable. The way Harper, the protagonist, talks and thinks is also very down to earth and similar to how people do the same outside of fiction. This made for a gripping story that actually lets the reader feel like they are part of the story. An added bonus is how each of the characters in the novel have their respective flaws. They are not the perfect, unassailable gods and goddesses that are sometimes cliché in novels. The author even includes a few detailed sex scenes in the novel, yet portrayed them in a way that was realistic and not tacky in the least.
I recommend this novel to others because I think that they, too, would able to get into the novel for all the reasons listed above, and then some. I look forward to whatever works this author has planned, and truly hope those reading this review enjoy it as much as I have.

I seriously cried. In fact, I loved, I laughed, I hated, I cried. I agree with other reviews...this cannot be a debut novel. Oh, the way V. captured my heart, my attention and my interest is everything a reader wants. Ryder is what every women needs...not someone to save Harper, but someone for her to lean on. Harper, I relate to so much. The way she loses herself in everything she does, is just how I do. The steamy scenes...oh my. Just...oh my. Erotic, passion-filled, and just...whoa. I haven't put my nook down since I dl-ed my copy just a few hours ago. It's one of THOSE books. Just perfect. And I was delighted to read the awknowledgements and find the spoiler...and absolutely cannot wait to read more by V. This author has talent and will go far!Was this review helpful?
