    3. In the plethora of the romance novels is quite hard to find something special. Authors’ creativity and talent are put to the test even for those books intended solely for true fans of the genre. How I’m not such a fan, although lately I kind of read only contemporary romance, I can say that I am quite demanding and I’m rolling my eyes quite quickly. Regarding Something to Prove I can affirm that I had not the opportunity to do so and that is a (very) good thing.Each of us have (maybe) some [...]

    6. This is shaping up to be a great series! I'm still laughing quietly to myself from reading this book. It has everything I'm looking for in a contemporary romance. It's a business to lovers story involving two strong, independent, smart, flawed but amusing characters. The pacing was even and the story well plotted - twists weren't telegraphed, which really delighted me. The sex scenes were sensual and passionate though not salacious and gratuitous. This is the third book in a series, but I didn't [...]

    7. [ARC provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.][Read other reviews on authorarosa]I don’t know why I worry so much when I pick up a new romance novel nowadays. I am always pleasantly surprised, and Something to Prove ended up being right up my alley. It was a slow start, but I just knew if I read on I was going to like both main characters, Elizabeth Brannigan and Colin O’Leary. The set up was too ideal for my romance read to go wrong!The plot is one I have, personally, not ye [...]

    8. 1 star.I have to start out by saying that though this book has a fairly interesting storyline, I can't recall a character that I've hated as much as I can't stand Elizabeth Brannigan. I have thirty notes highlighted in my kindle and eighteen of them are along the lines of "hate her" and "OMG what a bitch!". So, I freely admit that my insane dislike of her might have colored my opinion on the rest of this book. Now, on to the story.Elizabeth just wants to show her father that she's as capable of [...]

    10. Something to Prove by Shannyn Schroeder is the 3rd book in her O’Leary’s series. I have not read the first two books in this series, as this is the first time I have read Schroeder. After reading this book, I want to go back to the first two books and find out more about this great O’Leary family. Don’t worry though, this book can be read as a standalone, as you meet most of the O’Leary’s throughout the story. Something to Prove is about Colin O’Leary and Elizabeth Brannigan. Eliza [...]

    12. Colin O'Leary ran off instead of stepping up and running the family business when his father passed away.

    13. I put this book down when I finished, and my first thought was “Shannyn Schroeder went to my high school”. Second thought was that I knew those people. See I went to high school in the northeast, in a predominantly Irish-Catholic area: and I even went to a girls school. All of these issues: the family dynamic, the pressures to both acknowledge and pay homage to the heritage: those are additional obstacles, usually put forward by family. In this book, we meet Elizabeth or Libby as she prefers [...]

    14. My rating: 3.5 of 5 ⭐️Elizabeth never quite grew out of her somewhat childish competitive focus with her brother and her new self found venture of re-inventing a run down bar, is once again an example of that. Of course the dynamic between the siblings was created and urged on by father dear, but nonetheless, needlessly perpetuated by Elizabeth, who with all her feelings of inadequacy, can't seem to let go. Poor little rich girl trying to win daddy's approval.In comes Colin with plenty of ba [...]

    18. ***I was given an ARC from Reading Bliss in exchange for an honest review***Something To Prove is the third book in the O'Leary's series.

    19. For the full review and to read my other reviews, head to my review blog, My Written RomanceThe title of the third in Shannyn Schroeder's O'Leary series perfectly encompasses her characters. Both Colin and Elizabeth have something to prove, albeit for different reasonsThese two balance each other really well. Colin's laid-back and easygoing demeanor is the perfect foil for Elizabeth's somewhat uptight, business-centric personality. Their romantic and physical chemistry is really well done, and e [...]

    21. My Review:4.6 Star Review - Something To ProveI recommend this book.This book includes drama, passion, betrayal, and heartache. Elizabeth has always competed with her brother on projects. She is going to bring a bar back to life and then once it is thriving she will let her brother and father see how much she disserves to run the company. Only problem is she knows nothing about running a bar. She needs a partner who knows the bar business and can help her out. Colin knows how to run a bar and dr [...]

    22. The Love of a good man4 stars!hotness factor: As good as an Irish coffeeI received this ARC in exchange of the honest reviewI haven’t read the first two books of The O’Learys series but I had no problem following this one. Oh Libby, Libby, Libby… you’re giving me an ulcers! Elizabeth Brannigan is a workaholic who has been trying to prove her self-worth to her brother and her father for a decade. She’s a little paranoid, kind of clumsy and apparently a snorer. Then along came Colin O’ [...]

    23. The 3rd series to the O'Learys, the 2 main leads ; Elizabeth and Colin. It was a slow start to the story as it takes about 3 chapters to introduce Elizabeth and develop her. It was a frustrating pace for an introduction to a character. Thank goodness that the story picked up its pace in the middle chapters. I was not very keen on reading this book as Colin gave an image of being irresponsible, flirty and what have you. I was glad that I still decided read even with such prejudice that I have got [...]

    24. 3.5 starswhat a great way to spend a day snowbound in the house. Simple summary - Elizabeth thinks she has something to prove to her father and brother so that she can be the one to take over the family business when her dad retires. Collin thinks he has something to prove to his family because he left when his dad died and didn't take over their family business. Elizabeth and Collin get into a partnership revitalizing a local bar that Elizabeth's brother owns and they fall in love. She totally [...]

    25. I got tired of all the family drama in this one. First we have the whole Colin/Ryan thing. I get why Ryan was mad at Colin, he wasn't one of my favorite characters, too mired down in the whole woe is me, my brother won't believe in me. Well, maybe that is because you ditched the family, so you deserved it, getting back that trust is hard to do.The there is Elizabeth's family, well with family like that who needs enemies. I can't believe how the dad pitted Elizabeth and Keith against each other, [...]

    26. I liked the characters very much. Many times I would get mad at Elizabeth but the story of her situation with her past builds throughout and you switch to empathy for her. Nice writing. I still don't get her parents but it's explained and yet I think I don't have the life experience to draw from to understand rags to riches or whatever the idea the author was meaning. Not her fault, just the facts. I felt bad that Elizabeth was so alone. I like how I feel at the end of the story as it wraps up s [...]

    27. Received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest reviewI loved this book from start to finish. A great contemporary romance about two individuals trying to define their place in their respective families and businesses and falling in love in the process. The author did a good job of giving the secondary characters their own personalities and backstories as well . Just found out that some of their characters have their own books - definitely going to check those out now. Hope that there a [...]

    28. I did enjoy this. The story was decent, the concept good, and the characters were really good ( I liked Colin and his family). Colin and Elizabeth were the perfect combo. Laid back, easy going, and a people person Colin balances out, hard working, over worked, up tight Elizabeth. Together the pull resources to revamp a bar/bowling alley to prove to both of their families what they are capable of. In doing so they fall in love. It's not just all butterflies and rainbows. There is some angst, and [...]

    29. Something to Prove is funny, beautiful and passionate read with enough amount of drama to keep you up all night.I absolutely love this story!I love how the author crafted the characters and made them more believable.The story and plot keep the readers attention and focus.A definite must read.Can´t wait to read more from Shannyn in the future.≧◔◡◔≦ 5 ✰ read ≧◉◡◉≦>>>ARC received in exchange for an honest review<<<

    30. I really like this series. All of the characters are flawed and real. Colin showed his vulnerable side and I really enjoyed how he wasn't shy to show his feelings for Libby first. There were a few times when I wanted to punch Elizabeth when I thought she was being ridiculous, but it all worked out in the end. I can't wait for the next book so I can catch up with all of the O'Leary's. Keep up the good work Shannyn.
