      A sweet and gentle story that got me reading in my happy place. This is the second book about this couple, and after the high that the first book finished on, much of this was like an extended epilogue as we got to see our couple exchanging witty banter and jumping one another. Repeatedly. Nothing wrong with that. The drama, when it came, was relatively low angst, but beautifully and sensitively expressed.A cute read if you're in the mood for something funny, sweet and romantic.

      *4.75* I thought there was no way, no way!!, Ms. Netzel was going to pull off a second stellar read about Julia and Ben. Happy to report I was wrong! The continuation of their love story has SO much emotion. I sad cried. I happy cried. I'm in love with this couple and their crazy friends and family. I can't wait to read book three - please let it be Allie's story (with lots of Ben and Julia!!!). Bonus chapters from Ben's POV was the icing on the cake! This author has jumped into my top tier of f [...]

      This review was originally posted on Cocktails and BooksAs soon as I finished THE CASUAL RULE, I immediately searched to see if there was a second book to this series. I needed more Ben and Julia. Thankfully, THE NEW RULE was there and I one-clicked that book quicklyE NEW RULE picks up a few months after the end of THE CASUAL RULE. Ben and Julia are now in a committed relationship. The "I love you's" have been said and they are building something solid together. They're still sarcastic, snarky, [...]

      "Just because things get difficult, doesn't mean they're bad. Life has a funny way of tossing you around until you're pointed in the right direction again."Adorable, witty and delicious The three must have ingredients to any read worthy book and The New Rule has them all plus more!Around this time last year I was in the mood for a sweet romance that I could read on my beach vacation. I have a Kindle full of books that fit the bill but instead of picking a random book I posted a question to our [...]

      ♡♡Reviewed by Book Fancy Blog ♡ ♡I gave this book 5 stars! I'm trying to figure out where to start. This book gives it allist, turns, emotions, Hot sex, love, storyline and amazing set of characters. I fell in love with The Casual Rule but this book surpass that. I couldn't put it down and when I did I was thinking about the characters and trying to guess what would happen next. AC has a way to capture your attention and never let's it go the further into the book. Even in the end you wi [...]

      Holy cow! I wanted to scream so loud with the last chapters. And the bonus? I was already without voice. Ben Martin has officially a place in the list of my favorite fictional boyfriends. I hope I get someone like him if my dream of living in New York City comes true. Can't wait for the last book of the series. Please A.C do it!!!!

      4.5 Star Review by Jen SkewesI just love Ben and Julia. They honestly have to be one of my favorite book couples. And I think it is because they are two people that you can relate to on so many levels. Their problems are real everyday issues that we all face. I fell in love with the in The Casual Rule and even more so in this one. The New Rule is a continuation of Ben and Julia’s story and it was just as good, if not better than the first one.Ben and Julia haven’t been together that long but [...]

      After reading "The Casual Rule", I had to get "The New Rule" right away, wanting to spend more time in the awesome world and with the characters I've come to adore that A.C. Netzel created. You might think it'd be boring to read more about them, now that Ben and Julia have figured their stuff out and are together. This couldn't be further from the truth. Just like in real life, getting together is the easy part for them - compared to the challenges life brings along. And this is what this book i [...]

      AC Netzl's new book A New Rule is a fast paced powerfully emotional story continuing the story of Ben and Julia from the Casual Rule.Ben and Julia navigate the transition from "casual" relationship to that of a committed relationship filled with all the highs and lows and the intrusion of real life events. Julia's Mom Rose gives Julia great advice about relationships: “Life’s challenges are like the tide, they ebb and flow. You just have to stay the course.” And she also says ride the wave [...]

      I *loved loved loved* Ben and Julia's first book, The Casual Rule. I couldn't wait to get my grubby little hands on this book, to see what AC Netzel had in store for them, and I wasn't disappointed.Ben, casual Ben, is trying his hand at his first relationship with our wonderful Julia. And Julia, god love her, is trying to get past her fears of cheating boyfriends and praying Ben will be the one to get her there.I love how he is so patient with her and she owns up to her shit when she makes a mis [...]

      This is sad to write b/c I really enjoyed the 1st book so much. This book wasn't really necessary at all, and it was too long and very repetitive. All contrived issues and situations. Everything just felt very drawn out and gratuitous, including the many sex scenes. Not every book (as good as it may have been) needs to be turned into a duet or trilogy.

      I read The Casual Rule in one sitting, and if I had another day to devote to reading I would’ve done the same with The New Rule. Even though I spaced it out over the span of a couple days I was still hooked and anxious to read every chance I got. I couldn’t wait to see what was in store next for Julia & Ben!The same laugh out loud humor and tear inducing drama that made me fall in love with book one was even more intense than ever! I laughed, I cried, and I did a celebratory fist pump ev [...]

    • Dani says:

      This book is even better than the first. In this book Ben & Julia are now officially a couple, but since Ben has only done the casual thing & Julia's ex left her broken, things are not exactly smooth sailing. Julia has her insecurities over being cheated on & Ben is starting to collapse under all the pressure in his life. Can they love each other enough to come out the other side in one piece and get their HEA. I highly recommend this book, you don't have to have read the first book [...]

      I read this book through Kindle Unlimited. This is the second book in the series. This picks up a few months after the first book ends. Ben and Jules are a couple in a relationship, the first one for Ben. I found myself laughing at loud at the dinner party conversation between Allie, her best friend and her boyfriend Vince. The secondary characters are great in this book. We get a little more of both of their families and the devastating loss of Ben's grandmother. This changes him and through hi [...]

    • Lauren says:

      this was a funny book, just like the first. and you couldnt help but root for ben and julia. the supporting characters were awesome. stuart is the best person in Ben's family, and Allie always makes me laugh. plus she is the type of friend everyone needs. my favorite thing about this book series was the way that the breakup scenes were written. you were really put inside the character's heads. there's a lot of love in this book. its nto sappy, but truly endearing.

    • Ann Johnson says:

You will have to read this book to find out. You won't be disappointed!!I know you will love this bookt reading!!

    • Johanna says:

      I love Ben Martin with my whole entire heart and all I wanted to do was hug him and never let him go even when he was having a hard time and being kind of a jerk. I didn't know what I was expecting from these books but I fell in love with them. I love Ben, I love Julia, I love Allie and even Julia's family. I'm in serious need of book number 3 even though I'm not sure if my heart will handle it.

    • Terra says:

      Absolutely loved it. This series is perfect I love every single character! Well no I didn't like cam-eel but I definitely enjoyed Julia telling her off lol I'm really looking forward to the last book. I thought the first book would be good but it was so amazing, I was blown away with both books so good. This author is definitely one of my favorites

    • Cass says:

      Sweet and full of feelings. I loved the first book and couldn't put it down. I really didn't think I could enjoy the second book more than I did the first, but that happened almost instantly. I found myself smiling, crying, and feeling so many different feelings throughout this book. Once again, I couldn't put the book down. It was full of drama, sadness, and love the whole way until the end.
