Series by ME Carter. Here we are reintroduced to Joie Stevens, Greg’s (Getting a Grip and Balance Check) sister. She’s a forty-something, well organized, mother who has gone back to school at Flinton State, where through a series or rather embarrassing mishaps she meets Jack Pride, assistant coach to the football team. I really enjoyed this book and am thrilled to see this series continue. Let’s face it, life isn’t over after forty. I cant wait to see what’s in store for Greer.

Pride & Joie was a wonderful second chance romance with a bit of angst. There was just the right amount of drama to keep you guessing about the future of Coach Jack Pride and Joie Stevens. Carter has a way of mixing the right amounts of serious, sweet, and funny. She always writes the most relatable characters.This is definitely a Rom-Com and a great addition to the first two books in the #MyNewLife series. The banter back and forth between the characters had me with tears in my eyes from laughing so hard.

M.E. Carter never fails to impress me with the realism in her stories and Pride & Joie is the epitome of her talents. This book tells the story of two every day, non-sugar coated, un-perfect people that have had real life experiences. They have come together under awkward circumstances (who hasn’t?) and met challenge after challenge together. This is a very endearing story that will make you laugh out loud a lot, and may make you tear up a bit, but it is so worth it!

I loved the release of one part at a time for this series. I really enjoyed getting to know Joie and Jack in the series - I thought the characters were well-developed and relatable (one of Carter's strengths). I have to admit, I thought the 2nd part of the series was a little "slower" than the first so I was excited to see how Joie & Jack's story would unfold in part 3. Boy, oh boy Part 3 did not disappoint. I had laughter, tears, anxiousness, worry - all of it. M.E. Carter truly has a gift in writing but especially with romantic comedy. The banter between Jack and Joie (and Hank!!) was witty, sarcastic, and fun. But Carter knows how to walk the line between romance and drama and witty humor; and she does it so well. I can't wait to read more from her.

I really liked this book. I love different speed of the #mynewlife series and this is another great addition! Joie is a single mom that returns to college after raising her son. While chasing her dreams of becoming a teacher, she runs into Jack Pride, a football coach at the University she's attending. I enjoyed watching their relationship bloom and the two characters have to adjust to sharing life and space and time with each other. I really enjoy Carter's sass and humor in all of her books and this one is full of all of the things I love about the author. I really hope we get a glimpse of Joie's son's Isaac's story sometime! This book was soft and sweet and exactly what I needed to get out of the book rut I was in. I love the way Carter writes a book. It's realistic and captivating

Pride and Joie is a simple and sweet novella with a strong and quirky heroine. It was an easy read for me, not too much angst but enough that I had some feels along the way. And I enjoyed it for the most part, although the stubborn, take no crap part of me had a few issues with Jack by the end of it. There was no cliffhanger, which was nice, but at the same time I have no idea where it's going to go from here. But I'm definitely curious to see where author takes it!

Carter comes again with this wee bit angsty RomCom and I loved every minute of it. I liked how the characters are older and seeing how dating life for them is different than dating in your 20s. Joie and Jack gets back onto the dating scene after many years off on the sidelines being busy with life. Their banter is on point, this story is sweet and funny and I really cannot wait until I get the next instalment in the series. I love all the characters and cannot wait to see what happens next. This is a kind of novella, 1 out of 3 instalments. And it was really good, no cliffhanger, if you're in the mood for a good RomCom then I really recommend it.
