I didn't dislike him nor was I overly enamoured with him. He seemed to blow very hot and cold and didn't know what he wanted with regards to his future. I think he needed to be more honest with Ruby and not have her running after him thinking something deeper could happen when maybe he wasn't ready for that. He needed to find his own resolution before concentrating on Ruby. Mason Soames is Ruby's boss at the pub.
A man about town, business man. He was suave and sophisticated and had the reputation that went with it. He was cute, young, cocky, smooth and charming and ignited a spark in Ruby that made her transform from a broken woman to someone with fire in her belly willing to go against the persona she portrayed when we first met her.
The weekend in Paris springs to mind even if what went on was very much not of her character. Mason had such a way about him, it was almost like Ruby fell under his spell as I am sure many readers will do to. But surely you need someone with a bit more stability, who won't act rashly and can keep their attention on one person at a time?
Roving eyes aren't ideal in a relationship no matter how handsome you are and what you can provide someone with or even if the words you want to hear come out of their mouth. The remainder of the story went back and forth between the two and Ruby's confusion and feelings increased. It became a bit repetitive and I can't say it held my interest throughout. Million Love Songs as a whole was bit of a mixed bag for me.
It could have been amazing but I didn't get the compulsive need to never leave the book out of my hands in order to discover the final outcome. In general that's what happens with me with Carole Matthews books I like two or three in succession and then there is one that is not for me.
I am glad I read this book because I think I would read anything Carole writes but this one just wasn't my favourite. View 2 comments. Jan 12, Sheena rated it liked it Shelves: chick-lit , kindle.

Joe on the other hand is kind and attractive, but comes with the sort of baggage Ruby wants to avoid: an annoyingly attractive ex-wife and two teenage children. Ruby thinks she knows what she wants, but is it what she needs to be truly happy? The book is written in 1st person, with Ruby as our narrator. It's a very easy read, the writing style is engaging and the chapters are very short - most of them being less than 5 minutes. But some things are described, such as "we get naked," and "pleasure my body" - but that's all.
There is also a few instances of swear words being used, but not many and its used in context. I enjoyed this book, it's a very easy read and its not a particularly deep read. Which is not a bad thing, sometimes its just what you need. I liked Ruby and her best friend Charlie, all of the characters were lovely really and I liked how the ending turned out.
It was also a very realistic read in some respects, which was great. I liked the Take That fan girling too - it was nice that it was portrayed as a way to bring people together and as a form of escapism, rather than obsession Always love a Carole Matthews book and such ab easy enjoyable read.
Full of romance and finding happiness and take that. Emotional as well and really finding what you want in life can be harder than you think at times you want to burst into song as they talk about take that songs.
Very enjoyable read. Ruby has recently split from her long term relationship and she doesn't want to rush into another relationship it's the last thing she wants and she just wants to enjoy life.
At work she meets her Always love a Carole Matthews book and such ab easy enjoyable read. At work she meets her boss Mason and he's everything Ruby wants just now with no strings attached fun but then she meets Jo and he's so kind and handsome but has lots of baggage which she needs to avoid as he has an ex and two children.
Can Ruby decide what she wants it dies she just want to be single but she needs to find her happiness but it does get emotional along the way.
Who does she decide if any and can she be happy. Oct 31, Lydia Bailey rated it liked it. Perhaps that helped. Going back to the author that started my love affair with Romance novels, Carole Matthews is without a doubt one of my favourite authors. She has a way of grabbing the readers attention from the very beginning and throughout the whole novel.
The cover of this particular novel of hers is quite different to the ones I've read before but I actually quite like that. It's simplistic, which I think a lot of authors are going for now, but it works well and doesn't give the story away too much. However, Going back to the author that started my love affair with Romance novels, Carole Matthews is without a doubt one of my favourite authors. However, there are key details scattered around the cover that gives us some sort of inkling.
I love the colourful little birds, the eiffel tower, the cups of tea and also the pretty flowers. The font also catches your eye. I'm umming and ahhing as to rate this a 3.
It took me quite a while to get into this story, but when I did I just couldn't put it down. It wasn't as happy and bubbly as Carole's other novels, and for that I'm not sure if I enjoyed it as much. Don't get me wrong, it ends nicely but quite abruptly in my opinion! I found myself quite often getting a bit irritated with what Ruby did, especially when things seemed to be going quite well for her! The whole love triangle thing between Ruby, Joe and Mason was interesting but quite exhausting at the same time!
Quite surprisingly, I did really enjoy the concerts and events to do with Take That! I'm not a big fan in any sense but it was really enjoyable reading about Charlie and Nice Paul and all the events that they went to.
I also enjoyed the part where Ruby went to Paris, even though what happened there was quite unexpected and I couldn't quite believe I was reading it! I'm glad with how it ended, I feel that Ruby got the right man and I'm pleased she didn't end up with who she could have been! Official Charts Company. Music Week.
