Overview

Tyler Benson's world was shaken with the news that he had a sister--one he never knew he had. Though he loves his sister, and his family remains a tightly woven unit, he simply can't shake the feeling of betrayal from his mother. After a sabbatical from his family to find himself it is time to head back home and try to pick up the pieces of his life.

Courtney Field has learned to deal with many tragedies. Losing her sight at eight-years-old was only a challenge that gave her many other skills. Now dealing with the loss of her brother in combat will no doubt teach her new lessons in life.

When Tyler meets Courtney on a South bound flight to Nashville he couldn't possibly have expected that she'd be his lesson in accepting the things he cannot change or control. But can he reciprocate in helping her accept the loss of her brother when she learns the truth of his death?

Beta Reader - AnnMarie Gagliano
The Acceptance continues the Keller Family Series with Tyler and Courtney's story about love, loss and the strength of family. When Tyler returns after a three year absence, he discovers more about himself after a chance meeting with a visually impaired young woman who teaches him how to truly see. Although there is an element of tragedy, I promise that you will read this entire book with a smile on your face. It's that heartwarming!

I loved it! Tyler and Courtney's story has to be my favourite so far. I couldn't put the book down until the last page and then I was sorry to see it end. I can't wait to read it again. Looking forward to the next chapter in the Keller Family. Bernadette keep em coming.

Bernadette Marie has done it again, another great story that is hard to put down. If you haven't read about the Keller clan before, you will find yourself reading the rest of the series just to get to know this eclectic group of people. Courtney and Tyler will steal your heart; the challenges they work through together bring you closer to the Keller family and leave you asking for the next installment. You will not be disappointed getting to know the Kellers.

If I'm not mistaken, the Executive's Decision was published in 2011. (Excellent book by the way. I've read it twice.) Tyler was born 3 years after the marriage of his parents. He's now approximately 5 years old. So, if you are reading each book in the Keller series, how can an adult Tyler already have a book about his romantic relationship? Wow....they age quickly.

The Acceptance is a sweet novel about the start of the relationship between Tyler and Courtney. Tyler has been away from his family after learning shocking news about his mother. Courtney is flying home, bringing home her brother home, a soldier who died in the middle East. The two meet on the plane and immediately feel a strong connection. The book follows their fast but sweet budding relationship. I really liked both characters and liked how they helped each other through the difficult times. I think the author did a great job of writing a believably strong and connected pair of characters. I received a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

Amazing!! This is the first book I have read by Bernadette Marie and it won't be the last. Marie is an excellent writer, every part of the book flowed smoothly. Being that this is book eight of The Keller Family Series, I was impressed that I didn't need a back story about the characters. The ease of reading book eight makes me want to read the first seven, mainly so I can know the whole story behind the Keller family. "The Acceptance" is a wonderful love story about Tyler Benson and Courtney Field who are both going through tough times. I loved the initial meeting of the two characters. Courtney drops her scarf and the rest of the book is created around that one act. There is a perfect mixture of romance, sorrow, love, and acceptance (perfect title for the book). By the end of the book I was craving more, Marie doesn't disappoint and I can't wait to read more of this series. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Bernadette Marie has created this family that we love and we just can not get enough of. Tyler Benson was hurt and felt betrayed when he found out he had a sister that was given up for adoption that only a few knew about. So he left 3 yrs ago, only to come back once for his sisters wedding. Courtney Fields has been on a journey of her own. Her brother was killed in combat and she finally has him to bring him home. They meet as they are getting on the plane. They both are on a journey to find what they have been missing, or so they thought. Tyler was looking for the love of his family and to find the love that his cousins have with their partners. Courtney was looking for independence and to be loved by someone, not a burned. You see this is a story of seeing the world differently. Where you close your eyes and you envision what you want or think the world is like....It is not love at First Sight but Love at first Smell as Courtney says (Courtney is blind). Got to love Bernadette's Happy Ever Afters.

I really fell in love with the characters in this book. This was the first book I have read in this series. I absolutely loved it. The author, Bernadette Marie, shared such a beautiful story about loss and love and finding your way amongst difficult circumstances. This story is based primarily on two characters, Tyler and Coutney. Tyler is returning home after running away from his family after hearing a secret about a long-lost sister. Coutney is returning home to bury her beloved brother who was in the war. Both characters were grieving, but they found each other and saw life through the other's eyes. I really just fell in love with them, not only them, but Tyler's whole family! They are the kind of family that everyone wants to have. This book just made me feel good! Even though difficult circumstances arose, the characters in this book really stood together and helped each other through. Just the way real families should. Thank you for writing such an incredible book! I was given a free book for writing an honest review.
