    One thought on “Hollie Porter Builds a Raft”

    1. Hollie Porter Builds a Raft is so stinkin’ cute! Must Love Otters was one of my top reads of 2013, so I’m ashamed that it took me this long to read the sequel. It was so good, and I’m not surprised that it’s all kinds of adorable and full of laughs! It’s exactly what I needed, and now I feel like doodling hearts everywhere. :DIt’s been a year since the events of the last book and life is great for Hollie. She’s in love, living in a beautiful place, and gets to work in nature with w [...]

    2. Hollie and Ryan have been together for a year and their relationship is moving right along. But when he pops the question, far from being the happy ending and off into the sunset, Hollie finds herself assailed with doubts. Making matters worse, her absentee mother has shown up for the wedding and it's possible she's on the run; her ex-boyfriend is making sure everyone in the state sees a clip of her throwing up; her father's psychopathic goat still has it in for her; and even the Canadian govern [...]

    3. Favorite Quotes:“Her eyes were hopeful, despite the smear of black and blue cosmetics that make her look like she’s been assaulted by Crayolas on a bender.”“The harnessed power of this man’s smile could bring an end to our reliance on fossil fuels.”“But… what if I don’t want to reproduce at all? Why is that everyone expects that as soon as you get married, you’ll start squeezing out mutant life forms?”“I sneak into the lingerie section to find a little something for Ryan [...]

    4. Review posted on My Book Snack5 Stars ~ A MUST READ for Must Love Otters fans!If you adored Must Love Otters, you need to see what happens in the sequel. Hollie Porter Builds a Raft had more of everything I loved in Must Love Otters. Hollie gets into more quirky situations. Hollie and Ryan are blissfully in love in Revelation Cove, and they’re ready to take the next step in their lives as a couple. Things hardly go perfect for Hollie…ever! In addition to a series of mishaps that only Hollie [...]

    5. Please see my full review with Lustful Literature but for now know that I adore this series and the author for giving me exactly what I asked for. Even after I’ve finished Hollie and Ryan’s sequel I have the same request- MORE. I won’t ever have enough of the crazy Hollie Porter and her love for otters and Concierge Ryan. Along with riding the wave as they follow the next steps in their relationship I fell harder for these two. It was rib-tickling funny. From little Melody telling about he [...]

    6. *2.5 starsWhen I read the first book, Must Love Otters, I really enjoyed it till the cougar incident. This book had its funny moments just like the previous one but at the same time, I felt there were too many mishaps. Hollie is an accident waiting to happen, which apparently she gets from her mother. She's always finding herself in awkward or klutzy situations. Which can be funny or it can get old fast. That's how I found myself through this book. Beginning: I was liking it and chuckling. Middl [...]

    7. Loved every second of this hysterical romp in the lives of Hollie Porter, Ryan, his family, the resort, her father and drum roll her long lost mother who left when she was a baby. What a hoot!!! I enjoyed jumping back into Hollie's life from book one: Must Love Otters. This series ( I hope there is another one in the future) rates up there with Stephanie Plum's books and Bobbie Faye's books. Not to mention I needed a great belly laugh with a few Kleenex moments to cleanse my reading palate of de [...]

    8. 4.5 starsAfter waiting so long to read Must Love Otters, I wasn’t making that same mistake again with Hollie Porter Builds a Raft, I started immediately after finishing MLO, and I was more than happy to stay in the world of Ryan, Hollie and the others for a little while longer.HPBaR picks up one year later, and Hollie has given her old life the flick and is enjoying life at the resort with Ryan, she even has a job that allows her to spend time teaching the younger generation about her beloved [...]

    9. I liked this even a bit more than the first book. I think it's because I really enjoyed my time with Hollie and her man. Hollie is hilarious and her hockey player and her dad are two of the most likeable nice guys I've read about. They give me hope for fictional men, who just seem to be getting worse, imo. Even though I enjoy some sexy times in Romance books, I'm amazed when an author can make their stories sexy without all of the details. She gets it perfect in this book. Lucy almost knocked th [...]

    10. Full review to come:This novel is an amazing sequel to Must Love Otters. I laughed so hard and loved every minute of it. Gordon does a phenomenal job keeping the story interesting and light while still dealing with some heavy topics concerning what makes a family, and I am hoping so very much that there will be a third in the series. Seriously, READ THIS STAT!

    11. I loved this sequel to "Must Love Otters". Ms. Gordon wrote living breathing believable characters. You WANT to know how Hollie and Ryan's journey continues and you buckle in for this fun rom-com ride. You even meet characters you'll love and hate (in all the right ways). This was a fun read. You won't regret it.

    12. Hollie Porter Builds A Raft is the sequel to Must Love Otters. This story takes place a year after Otters ends. We continue with the story of Hollie and Concierge Ryan and the next step in their relationship.I think I enjoyed the sequel more than the first book. I'm a sucker for romantic comedies. This was sweet, fun and the perfect dessert for escaping a stressful day. Well recommended!

    13. **MEGAN'S REVIEW**“It’s our raft, Porter. We can do whatever we want. We just have to float together.”I love the feeling after finishing a book I’ve wished for and hoped for! So many of us asked for more and we got it. I was absolutely thrilled diving into Hollie and Concierge Ryan’s sequel!! It was an answered prayer!The world of Hollie and Ryan (& the never forgotten otters) fell into my lap by chance and it’s one book that I remember every detail anytime the name is mentioned [...]

    14. ARC provided by publisher via NetGalleyI adored Must Love Otters so I couldn't wait to read Hollie Porter Builds a Raft and of course, it did not disappoint. I loved it! It was highly entertaining even though it gave me serious anxiety. Crazy mishaps and over the top trouble seems to follow Hollie around and in this book there's something around every corner. Is it all a little overdone? Sure, but that's what makes Hollie's story so endearing. This book brought a smile to my face and gave me all [...]

    15. This one is filled with more zaniness that filled the first book. I can see why Hollie found reservation after reservation, but loved how Ryan batted each of them down. Nothing was a problem for him, just an obstacle to work past. The ending was perfect for them and showed how Ryan totally knew Hollie and what was perfect for them both.

    16. I love everything Eliza Gordon writes. This sequel to MUST LOVE OTTERS was a fun comedy of errors, much like its predecessor. Just enough snark to keep me giggling and wondering, "How the hell will Hollie get out of THIS one?"

    17. 4.5*Such a fun follow-up to Must Love Otters! I loved being back on the island with Hollie and Concierge Ryan, these 2 are just so cute. As they prepare for their wedding there are lots of obstacles to overcome, least of all Hollie's mother, who she hasn't seen in years. Add in an ex, a broken arm, a baby to be delivered, and a hungry goat, and Hollie and Ryan have their hands more than full as they try to pull off a wedding in 3 weeks. And that means we get all the laughs!***Borrowed through KU [...]

    18. This is the sequel to Must Love Otters, which I loved, and I totally enjoyed this one too! I am not a fast reader but finished this in less than a week (may be a record for me) because I can totally relate to a woman whose life is anything but a smooth ride but who is caring and passionate about the things and people she cares about, and who doesn't want to imagine life with a man as loving and patient and perfect as her man. This book was a pleasure to read!

    19. Good Lord these otter books are fun. Hollie and Ryan are getting married after a second proposal (she barfed all over him the first time). Hollie's wayward mom shows up and fires and babies and baby otters ensue. I'm not sure I loved this one as much as the first (I wish there was more Ryan) but I did love it. 4.5 stars.

    20. Who knew otters were so interesting? I bought this immediately after finishing "Must Love Otters". It was the 1st book I've read by this duo. I love both of these books! They were so well written. My attention was held from start to finish. I haven't laughed so hard while reading a book in forever. I teared up, as well. Thank you for these great stories!

    21. Great bookSo first off you must start with Must Love Otters. Both books are no stop funny. I was laughing out loud more times than I can count. Great story, great characters and so much romantic humor.

    22. Alot of fun to read. Sometimes life needs to be much less serious.The characters are interestinglooking forward to Hollis Porter has a pup!

    23. I seriously love these characters so much! Another fabulous book by Eliza Gordon! I devoured this story and would love to read more about these characters! SO good!
