Review:

RaeAnne Thayne is a mastermind when it comes to creating the perfect contemporary romance tales. Her latest book, Brambleberry House, contains two short novellas. Each one has its way of pulling me deep into its journey. Epic, heartfelt, and well-written. The characters are to die for…

Inside, His Second-Chance Family, I got to two old sweethearts. Traveling back to their sweet moment of being 16-years-old and in love. A brief sweet kiss from a first love.  Their memory of that has stayed with them even now, as adults. One stayed and the other left. Now, many years later, fate has brought them together. Both have lost a loved one two. Their shared experience in pain, grief, loss, and love has a way of making a new path. Maybe, love and healing is in the air…

Next, is A Soldier’s Secret. Here, I got to meet a nephew of a deceased woman. His aunt gave her home to two ladies. One such lady was Anna Galvez. Her luck in love was bad. Her finance ran off with another woman and left her on their wedding day…

Now, she appears stiff as a board but there’s more to Anna than beats the human eye. With some help from a dog and the spirit of the deceased aunt…Anna and Harry might have a chance at a happily ever after. But they must overcome their fears and find courage to move forward. Love is in the air. It’s up to the charcaters to brace enoughto accept it.

Troubled hearts filled with pain, loss, and grief. RaeAnne Thayne has brought two unique tales that teach lessons of life as well as showing me that anything is possible. Love can happen when we least expect it to…overall, I highly recommend Brambleberry House to readers worldwide. The plot was enticing from the first page. Charming charcaters and tales that steal readers’ hearts.

Review: Royally Roma





Synopsis:

In this charming, modern retelling of the classic Audrey Hepburn film Roman Holiday, a royal prince tries to escape his hectic and rigid life and ends up leading a young graduate student on a chase through the Eternal City.

Julia Costa is too busy trying to complete her PhD while also holding down a full-time job as a private tour guide in Rome to keep up with celebrity gossip. So when she crosses paths with a real, actual prince, she mistakes him for a client and takes him on a daylong tour of the city.
Intrigued by the idea of spending time with someone who obviously has no idea who he is, and delighted at the prospect of a day free of royal obligations, Niccolo La Torre, Crown Prince of Lazaretto, acts on impulse and assumes the role of Julia’s client. He swears to himself that he’ll return to his royal duties after only half a day…but he’s having the time of his life.
Until Julia presents him with the bill. Since he snuck out of the hotel without so much as a dime, he tries to escape, only to discover that she won’t let him out of her sight until he can pay her back. She’s determined to get her money…and perhaps more from the handsome stranger she’s fallen for.

Review:

Royally Roma by Teri Wilson was a terrific read. Hot romance with unexpected outcomes. I was excited and deeply engaged from the first page to the last. The first book to a new series. A young woman who is intelligent but taken abuse of in situations had lead her to not trusting some people. Especially, one good looking man that oozes all sex and lust. He lies to her about who he really is. But then knowing who he really was, the whole situation was easy to understand. Both charcaters were easy to relate to as well as love. An older prince wanting to escape his duties for a bit. All the pressure caused by his younger brother and his all demanding grandfather make his job less appealing. Out for some space…he runs into a gorgeous but brilliant woman. From there Rome has them bothenchanted and falling in love little by little. Funny, sweet, and one amazing adventure that readers don’t want to miss. Overall, I recommend this contemporary romance novel, Royally Roma, to all.

Review:

The Dangerous Billionaire by Jackie Ashenden was brilliant. A family torn apart by a dead father’s secrets. A man who couldn’t have kids adopted and accepted four children to raise as his own. His heirs. The father is a rich man who made his money from oil. After his death he wrote a will. Stating that his eldest adoptiveson, Van Tate, is the sole heir of both the Tate oil company and the ranch. But there lies the problem…the ranch was to go to the youngest. Chloe Tate was told by her father that’s she would inherit the ranch. However, he’s dead now, and he left behind more problems than promises kept. 

Chloe is called out to New York by Tate. She soon learns that he has inherited everything…including the family ranch. Chloe is frustrated at how Tate makes her feel. Tate, too, has deep feelings for his adoptive sister, Chloe. They both try to push the feelings away. But neither succeed and now, the stakes are high as well as the danger. Secrets…Chloe and Tate both find out her real parentage. Shock isn’t the only emotional released after the news. The emotional journey from beginning to end was intense. Powerfully written and engaging in every way possible. Tate soon becomes exactly as the title suggests, The Dangerous Billionaire. Jackie Ashenden has thoroughly impressed me with her applause male heroes and stubborn heroine. The plot twists were unexpected but very good. Enticing, hot, and sweet. I loved reading this contemporary romance novel. Overall, I highly recommend it to all. 

Review: Pillowtalk 




Synopsis:

In this heartfelt romance from the author of the All About Love series, two people who thought they’d given up on passion turn to each other for emotional support—and maybe something a little more physical.

 

Kennedy Walters has had a tough year. Now she’s come to the lakeside town of Lyra Valley to finally say goodbye to the memory of her first love. But while she’s staying at his sister’s B&B, Kennedy is shocked to find herself undeniably drawn to a handsome local heartthrob—especially since she isn’t sure if she’s ready to move on.

 

Aaron Sheppard returned to Lyra Valley because he was fed up with the big city and everything it didn’t have to offer—like the beautiful, down-to-earth girl staying at the B&B. Aaron’s enjoying a little flirtation until he realizes that she’s Kennedy Walters, the girl who was dating his best friend. But after a power outage strands them together, Aaron and Kennedy wind up sharing some intimate conversation. And over the course of a night that neither will ever forget, they learn just how compatible they could be—if only they knew how to let go and fall into each other’s arms.

Rating: 5-stars

Review

Pillowtalk by Cassie Mae is a beautifully told romance. A young woman deeply in love with a man ends up losing him…he was a man who didn’t believe in marriage yet even until the end he didn’t want to let go of Kennedy. He loved her. She loved him so much. A year after losing her first love, readers follow her back to a small-town. The small-town her love was from…to spread his ashes. From loss to sorrow, then to love and happiness…I was instantly impressed with Cassie Mae’s writing. Her charcaters carried a heavy burden, a load that weighed them down from moving forward. Kennedy would hold the silver canister filled with her love’s ashes. She proved to be a strong character. Aaron was strong too. He felt like he wasn’t a good man and that he didn’t deserve love. Then, Kennedy comes and instantly something about her fills him with joy. But first they both need to let go, and love again. Pillowtalk is a heartfelt, sweet, and sexy tale. I couldn’t stop reading it. The plot was engaging and the characters were believable. Their pain was easy to relate to as well as understand. I can see this novel being a big screen picture. Beware, readers will cry just as much as they laugh when following Cassie Mae’s latest story. Overall, I highly recommend it to all. 

Review: A Thousand Letters





Synopsis:

Sometimes your life is split by a single decision. 
I’ve spent every day of the last seven years regretting mine: he left, and I didn’t follow. A thousand letters went unanswered, my words like petals in the wind, spinning away into nothing, taking me with them. 
But now he’s back.
I barely recognize the man he’s become, but I can still see a glimmer of the boy who asked me to be his forever, the boy I walked away from when I was young and afraid. 
Maybe if he’d come home under better circumstances, he could speak to me without anger in his voice. Maybe if I’d said yes all those years ago, he’d look at me without the weight of rejection in his eyes. Maybe if things were different, we would have had a chance. 
One regretted decision sent him away. One painful journey brought him back to me. I only wish I could keep him.
*A contemporary romance inspired by Jane Austen’s Persuasion*

Review

Wow! Staci Hart knows how to write well. Her story immediately dragged me deeper into the lives of her characters. A Thousand Letters is about an engaging tale of loss, love, and new beginnings. Deeply emotional…readers beware you will cry and fall in love. 

A love so strong that it literally digs into your soul and doesn’t release you until the ending. Epic. I found myself feeling the raw but bold desire radiating off the two main characters. Their sparks are electrifying. Zapping me each time they were near each other. 

Death can do a lot. Elliot has her reasons and so did Wade. But what tears them apart can also bind them. Family life is complex that is can take a toll on who the characters become and how they live their lives. The book almost had a Dear John kind of vibe but more spectacular. Heartfelt, realistic, and a romance that I couldn’t ignore. My heart tore and stretched throughout the piece. Overall, A Thousand Letters is a must read for all.

Rating: 5-stars

Review:

Accidentally on Purpose by Jill Shalvis is the most intoxicating romance read ever. Imagine having a sexy hulk in your life daily…he just oozes male and sex. What I really liked was how the tall handsome hulk never went after the gorgeous long legged blonde he worked with…both of the charcaters had restraint to a point. I was amazed. I would have melted on spot like Elle felt every time she went near him. Archer has that no nonsense attitude and he doesn’t like any other man around her…it drives him insane. But she, Elle, deserves the best. It will take some time before he realizes he’s had enough and goes after her. But by then, he’ll need to convince Elle that they fit together. 

Once again, Jill Shalvis has created a masterpiece. One that tugs at my heart and has me on a rollercoaster ride. Jealously, need, want, love, laughter…sadness…Accidentally on Purpose has it all. I loved it. The charcaters created a visually engaging tale. One that hooked me from the beginning. A page turner. Hot, addictive, and entertaining. The scenes felt real…the romance kept building up…the suspense was a killer. Jill Shalvis has a talent for  writing the perfect romances that have just the right combination of elements to make readers like me fall in love. Overall, I highly recommend this brilliant story to readers worldwide. 

Review: Raphael’s Fling by Alix Nichols



Synopsis:

My name is Mia, and I dream about publishing a book on medieval Paris. 

Except… I’m better qualified for writing a manual on how to go from a budding scholar to a pregnant runaway in three easy steps. 

– – –

My sister Eva carries a torch for the wrong man. Here’s the gist of my sermons to her: “Drooling over your hunky astronaut boss is a loser’s trek to Calamity with three stops along the way: Heartbreak, Job Loss, and Spinsterhood.” 

The thing is, I’m in a terrible—you could even say impossible—position to lecture Eva. 
I’m attracted to my own boss. 

Raphael d’Arcy is funny, smart, and uber-rich. He’s also smoking hot. That alone should have scared me away, were I not such a dolt, my academic achievements notwithstanding. 

But there’s more. 

Raphael is France’s most notorious playboy who doesn’t do relationships. He does one-night stands. If sufficiently intrigued, he might do a fling. Which is the most I could ever hope to have with him—a short-lived fling. 

So what, right? It’s not the end of the world. 

But consider this: Getting my heart broken by Raphael d’Arcy is the least of my worries. 

Some very serious merde has been piling up in my life lately. 

And it’s about to hit the fan. 

RAPHAEL’S FLING is a sexy standalone romantic comedy. No cliffhangers. GUARANTEED: a swoony bad-boy hero, laugh-out-loud moments and a happily-ever-after. 

Rating: 5-stars

Review:

Raphael’s Fling by Alix Nichols is a sexy contemporary romance that will entice many. It hooked me from page one. I was entertained. The plot was fast and held my attention immediately. I was drawn into the drama and realistic scenes. After having read Find You in Paris, I was looking forward to reading this new title. It was just as hot.

Inside this title, I met Raphael d’Arcy. He’s an alpha male that can make any woman swoon on spot. His sexy looks and money make every woman want him. However, Alix Nichols has created more than beats the eye to this man. He has had a past involving a woman and that’s where he’s at now. He was just going through life until he met Mia…

Mia is a graduate student working to pay for her tuition. She works at Raphael’s company. Like all the other women, she has the hots for her boss. She knows he’s a player and that nothing will come of their affair, if they ever have one. Until one kiss, Mia didn’t think she’d ever share anything with her sexy boss. However, lightening strikes, and that leaves Mia’s world spiraling out of control. All thatshe had held dear may just be lost. Someone is threatening her…and only time will tell where she and Raphael will stand once it’s over…

Raphael’s Fling is by far the most enchanting real-life tale. Romance that tugs at my heart and sends me deeper into suspense. So many things can happen and did. Readers will have to dig into the book for the details..overall, I loved it. Believable, heart melting, and stunning. I highly recommend this book to all. 

Review: If Not for You




Synopsis:

An emotionally stirring novel that shows how obstacles can be overcome, differences can be strengths, and sometimes a choice can seem wrong even though it s absolutely right
If not for her loving but controlling parents, Beth Prudhomme might never have taken charge of her life and moved from her native Chicago to Portland, Oregon, where she s reconnected with her spirited Aunt Sunshine and found a job as a high school music teacher. If not for her friend Nichole, Beth would never have met Sam Carney, although first impressions have left Beth with serious doubts. Sam is everything Beth is not and her parents worst nightmare: a tattooed auto mechanic who s rough around the edges. Reserved and smart as a whip, Beth isn t exactly Sam s usual beer-drinking, pool-playing type of woman, either.

And if not for Sam who witnessed the terrifying ordeal, rushed to her aid, and stayed with her until help arrived Beth might have been all alone, or worse. Yet as events play out, Sam feels compelled to check on Beth almost daily at the hospital even bringing his guitar to play songs to lift her spirits. Soon their unlikely friendship evolves into an intense attraction that surprises them both. 
Before long, Beth’s strong-willed mother, Ellie, blows into town spouting harsh opinions, especially about Sam, and reopening old wounds with Sunshine.

Review:

If Not for You by Debbie Macomber is the sweetest romance tale I have read. Inside readers will find a relationship and a family that resembles most others. I got lost with each charcaters’ dilemmas. Their struggles felt so real…it was hard not to grow attached to each of them. Debbie Macomber is a bestselling writer for a reason, after reading her latest tale, I was hooked. Two unlikely beings brought together by fate. Each one has their own fears and troubles ahead. It will take both of them to help each other. A story of love, healing, and new beginnings. 

Inside If Not for You, neither main character would have found healing and closure. A man tortured by giving up his full rights to his daughter has led a solitary lifestyle. Because of his his daughter’s mother who broke his heart and kept the daughter out of his reach…Sam won’t do relationships. Then, two friends set him up on a blind date. The date was a disaster. Two people completely different that both knew at first sight it wouldn’t work. But then, all it took was one look and a life threatening situation to happen, and now, neither one is alone. Sam stayed at Beth’s side while help came. He was there during her recovery and through her therapy sessions. As time let on, they become closer.  

Beth was always living her lif the way her mother wanted. But Beth wasn’t happy. She was brought up to be smart and refined. Deciding enough was enough…she left home to be on her own. She had her Aunt Sunshine. Until one blind date, and a disaster out of nowhere. Car crash, injured, and stuck at the rehab. Beth will go through a rollercoaster ride that will bring many unexpected outcomes. Like her annoying mom, her aunt’s happiness, and finding her own happiness. But before all that, life will be crazy and bumpy as hell…

Debbie Macomber sucked me in whole. Every page made me want to be there. The charcaters were raw, rough edged, and sweet. Funny too, at time. Their inner and outer turnmoils made it impossible not to love them. It showed the realities of life, love, and forgiveness. Healing isn’t easy, but it can happen, if we let it. Overall, I highly recommend this contemporary romance to readers worldwide. If Not for You is a must read.

Review:

Still in Love With You by Lexie Davis is a romance that tugged at my heart, made me die with laughter, and had me falling in love. A military man struggling with after war terrors on his own and a woman from his past spinning his life even more out of control. Parker thought he was tough enough to handle life alone, until his old love came back to town. Aubree thought she could come home and not fall madly in love with her old flame, Parker. But spending time with him, has gotten under her skin as well as his. Neither own can deny their attraction. This sweet southern tale, has a lot of bumps but soon finds a smoothness tha works. It’s only time before both explode or completely fall apart. I loved the emotional attachment that came from reading this book. Lexie Davis knew what she was planning when she wrote this novel. I can’t forget the charcaters and their dilemmas as well as their love. Broken hearts being mended and forgiven is the best kind of story. Overall, I highly recommend Still in Love With You to readers worldwide. 

Review: RJ (The Age of Innocence)



Synopsis

Certainly, that girl can’t be Jessica, the shallow and venomous daughter, of the woman his father has started dating. His unwilling affection for this girl, however, tells him otherwise.

Fate has its own plan in store.

The pair’s unexpected and tragic trip to Verona, Italy puts them on the doorsteps of Romeo and Juliet and inadvertently becomes the catalyst to bind these two together throughout eternity. 

Only experience can change his hardened heart.

Review:

RJ the Age of Innocence by Tim Soeder is a stunning young adult romance. A contemporary piece featuring loss, new beginnings, and an unexpected romance. The loss of a mother and wife forces a father to move his son to a new place. But Roger just isn’t feeling at home. Then, enters Jessica. Once Roger meets her their lives change. Jessica might become his sister. But fate has other plans. Jessica is popular unlike Roger, aka RJ. Jessica’s attitude is crazy. I would label her as the queen bee. As the story develops readers will see why. Yet despite her attitude issues, RJ is finding it hard to forget about her. She’s taking up his thoughts…Tim Soeder has created a novel where I can easily lose myself within it. I felt like I was watching a movie versus reading a book. Vivid, engaging, and funny. Overall, I recommend RJ the Age of Innocence to all.

Review: Reaper’s Claim


Synopsis:

In my motorcycle club I’ve earned the name ‘Reaper’ and now I have my claim on Abby Harrison. 

Reaper:

I didn’t know what love was, but I knew what want was, and I wanted Abby. When I walked out of the club and saw her I was stone cold sober. She was quietly beautiful and unlike any other woman I’d had before. But she was the daughter of the president of Satan’s Sons MC and completely out of my reach.

Abby:

Everyone knew The Reaper and how he got his name, so I never expected him to be my salvation when my sisters drunk boyfriend wanted to lay hands on me. I thought my innocence would be lost in that alley, until he showed up and saved me. I know being with Reaper will lead to trouble, but I don’t know if I have the strength to stay away. 
Being together might be dangerous, but outlaws are meant to break the rules. 

Rating: 4-stars

Review:

Reaper’s Claim by Simone Elise is outstanding. It has everything one needs a hot action packed novel. Heat, sexy characters, and an emotional rollercoaster. The family situation is not normal but it works out for Abby and her sister as well as their dad. Being a single parent to raise his kids, he brought them to live in his biker bar. All the bikers know to respect the girls. Abby and her sister are 16-years-old and compete opposites. Abby is the studious good girl type while her sister is outgoing, moving from man to man and sucks at school. All it takes is for one moment outside and Abby meets Reaper, aka Kade. Everyone calls him Reaper. But Abby calls him by his real name. He is the biker son of another biker gang. Yet for some unknown reason fate has spiraled out of control and brought him face-to-face with a blue-eyed angle. Abby. But her age keeps him at bay. However the pull towards her is one he can’t resist. Their attraction and relationship goes up and down…definitely a realistic telling. I felt that the characters were real rather than just fictional. Simone Elise has susprised me with this romantic tale. Hot, raw, and bold. Reaper and Abby are entwined forever. But then something happens and their world falls apart…

Reaper’s Claim is a must read for all. Simone Elise kept me hooked. Every page was engaging. Drama, trouble, and danger…all hanging in the air. Plus, the raw attraction happening with two new couples and the novel takes on an explosive side. I enjoyed reading this book. I can’t wait to read the next book featuring what happens next…the ending was amazing. Overall, I highly recommend this to readers everywhere.

Rating: 5-stars

Review:

The Cosy Coffee Shop of Promises by Kellie Hailes is brilliant. Her story captures my heart and soul. The characters are opposites in ways but same in other aspects. Both work hard, have their own business, and have family issues. Sweet, seductive, and hilarious. Kellie Hailes has a knack for dragging readers further into the book. The plot was interesting. It kept me intrigued. Two young people with businesses close to one another go head-to-head in competition. Then, an unexpected fate happens causing them to make a deal. This deal will either break or make them. It has life changing consequences for both parties involved. Every day, people are constantly being battered with a particular label, which may not describe who they really are. Take the man owning the pub. Deemed as a player. Yet the little coffee shop owner finds that isn’t the case and more to the man than most could guess. Romance builds and so does the intensity of the fake engagement. Could it possible lead to more than what they thought…? The Cosy Coffee Shop of Promises is indeed just that. Promises are made and deals sought. Fighting to win and learning that there’s more to win, after being around a particular person…fate can be tricky. Or not. Kellie Hailes has masterfully woven the best romantic tale ever. I loved it. Couldn’t stop reading it. I finished it within an hour. Overall, I highly recommend it to all.

What would a big-time rodeo star like him see in a small-town veterinarian who wears glasses, rescues animals, and cries when watching rom-coms? Turns out, plenty. 

Raising bulls, riding the circuit, and looking after his ailing father–Lance never stands still for long. Yet Jessa catches his attention, and the more she tries to resist him, the more he wants her. When she agrees to move to the ranch to keep an eye on Lance’s dad, Jessa tells him they have to keep it professional: no flirting, no sweet talk, and definitely no kissing. But with Jessa now living under his roof, that’s easier said than done . . .

Review:

Hometown Cowboy by Sara Richardson is a must read for all. This romantic tale is full of hot sexy cowboys who can make any woman swoon. Their stories come alive with every page. Deep, sad, and emotionally charged. Sara Richardson has created an unforgettable story. Her characters are charming, funny, and believable. Themes of forgiveness, love, and family are represented from beginning to end. I remember just opening the book and before I knew it, I was done. The reading went by fast. I got lost within the lives of the characters. I loved reading it.

Sara Richardson brought a tale about one small-town family. Cowboys. A father was a bull rider. His wife couldn’t handle the pressure of losing him…and knowing her boys wanted to do what their father did…only pushed her further away. One day she left. Never returning. It was that day foreword that the lives of three boys and their father changed dramatically. Secrets kept since childhood come tumbling out…as all four men are reunited under sad circumstances. The oldest son, took over as parent to his younger brothers. It not long until fate comes knocking his world completely upside down and inside out…Jesse Mae Love.

Fates are entwined and it’s only a matter of time if they both come out healed or completely destroyed. Hometown Cowboy is definitely Italy a page turner. So much action, drama, and love to lure readers within its depth. Overall, I highly recommend it to all

Review:

Meant to Be by Maggie McGinnis is a sweet, hot, and charming read. I couldn’t stop reading it. Meant to Be is about a woman and man finding themselves, getting past their troubles, and maybe finding love too. Both characters were the kind that immediately pulled me into their story. Each had something under their belts that needed to be told. Needed to be heard. They needed one another. But when their time together ends, it is up to the, to decide where their futures lie.

Meant to Be is a contemporary romance that pulls at the hearts. A young and single woman has her career crashing around her. Her father was on his way to see her when his plane burned up…after that she lost it. Soon, she finds herself at a stud ranch. This where is the two irresistible characters meet. Maggie McGinnis knew exactly what she was doing…setting up readers to fall head over heels in love. Romantic, enticing, and highly engaging to read. Easy to follow along. I was sucked up into the tale from the beginning to end. Every page was more interesting than the previous. Loved it. Hot sexy men, emotional roller coasters, and the beauty of being oneself…all tied beautifully in this book. Overall, I recommend this romance to readers worldwide.

Review:

Samantha Chase, wow, you have outdone yourself once more! First, let me just say, that Samantha Chase has a particular writing style that I love. Her characters have this tug of war going on in each one of her books. Especially, inside One More Kiss. The tug of war is not just one sided. Second, there’s this deep emotional journey that one or both main characters go through…like Matt Reed. He’s a sexy, hot, and talented rockstar. Double check. But there’s more to him than beats the eye. His past history comes to light. Family stuff that’s hard to swallow. Immediately, I wanted to hug him. I wanted to let him know I felt his pain and will be there to support him. Honestly, Matt Reed felt so real. His burdens were realistic. Samantha Chase has a knack for creating the best three-dimensional characters. Well-rounded. Sure they make look perfect and a have super great talent. But they also have real issues like the rest of our world. Real world issues masterfully woven into a beautiful told fictional piece. If that’s not enough to keep readers hooked there is the heat and instant chemistry war going on between Matt Reed and his best friend’s sister. Vivian had always had a fantasy dream crunch on Matt. Now as adults, it feels much more potent. Then getting to see him in person after all the years he’s been gone…and the desire and dreams hit her hard. Full force. Slap to the face. She meets him once again. They quickly share a kiss…before the world comes shaking up their moment. Vivian is taken away…and after that life went on like the moment never happened…Samantha Chase is a talented writer. She not only creates stories that readers can easily relate to and love but ones that will never be forgotten. This entire book was a journey…and it was epic in every way. Overall, if love hot rockstars and a powerful romance, then this novel is the perfect read. I highly recommend One More Kiss to readers worldwide.

Rating: 5-stars

Review:

Somewhere on St. Thomas by Toby Neal is a sexy romance. I was got up by the instant connection the two main characters had. Just one meeting was all it took. Ruby has this thing about sailors…not good enough for her. Or so she said until Rafe came into her life. Right after winning the spelling bee, her mom introduced her to Rafe. Ruby of course is heading off to college in Boston. Rafe goes sailing out in the ocean…never would work out or would it? Ruby sets Rafe off like a bunch of fireworks. All she did was be herself and show off her sport skills. That and her beauty has him hooked. He’s ruined. No other redhead will do. Only Ruby. Ruby isn’t a saint. She wants sex. Rafe sets her down that path of sexual wanting that it frightens her. She runs away scared. But before she leaves the island…Rafe comes back to say goodbye but leaves her something. From there the novel picked up rather quickly. I was intrigued. These two could make any readers blush far worse than Ruby’s worst blushing spells. The heat comes off the pages. Their intense love and attraction made this felt so real. Their life it seems is connected. Somewhere on St. Thomas is a hot read. Heat, action, and believable characters. Once more, Toby Neal has created a stunning world of fiction. One that lured me deep into its depth and had me wanting more. I loved it. I do recommend this for those eighteen and older due to the adult content inside…other than that I highly recommend it to all.

Rating: 5-stars

Review:

Rome is Where the Heart is by Tilley Tennant is superb. The title alone snagged my attention. From there, I was following a young woman who marriage and work life were dull as ever. No wonder her husband wanted a divorce. But then again, he proved to be a dirt bag…and his wanting a divorce was the best gift ever for his wife. Kate was shocked, furious, and sad her husband dumped her. But then life, presented a perfect moment for her to travel. Rome…the city all love. Once she arrives, she meets a complete stranger. A gay man whose humor and charming personality, as well as good looks, make him the perfect guy friend. He takes on helping Kate explore and taste Rome’s finest food and places. I laughed so hard. This guy is the one people should invite to all social events. He can easily make any situation fun and easy going. His friendships with Kate helps not only her and him to…then, the plot gets even more intense. Unexpected people come into their life. Each friend has a whirlwind of events that will change everything. But their friendship will continue to grow. A hot romance between Kate and an Italian man was absolutely steamy. No sex…no dirty scenes. But their chemistry sparked enough attention to keep me interested. Alessandro has a complicated life. Life dealt him a sad hand until he meet Kate while just getting off duty. From there things are interesting. I was intrigued even more to know what will happen. I hope Tilley Tennant writes another book on these characters. I have come to love each one. They have a way of pulling me into the book. Overall, Rome is Where the Heart is…is indeed the perfect romance for all. I highly recommend it.

Review: Close to Home

Rating: 5-stars

Review:

Close to Home by Lily Everett is a stunning piece. This contemporary romance appeals to the physical and emotional side of readers. The story instantly sweeps readers off their feet. A sexy undercover FBI agent comes back home. Only to find that his wife moved a year ago, created a new life, and sent divorce papers. Talk about a blow to man’s heart and ego. Johnny won’t accept it. So, he does what any man who loves his wife does. Goes chasing after her. Make her love him again. But his wife has greatly changed. Tessa has redefined herself. She won’t let others dictate her lifestyle. She has worked on being independent. She doesn’t want her husband to love her because she needs his help. Little does she know how much he loves her…and it has nothing to do with just protecting her from the world…

Close to Home shows the reality of life. Marriage isn’t always a fairy tale. Communication issues were apparent in this fictional piece as they really are in real life. Husbands not understanding women’s ways…their bafflement makes me laugh. Especially Johnny admitting he had no idea what his wife wanted back then and even now…I enjoyed reading this tale from both characters’ point of view. It wasn’t told by their view, yet Lily Everett mastered it in a way that I got to see, hear, and understand from both Johnny’s and Tessa’s sides. Overall, this romance was engaging, exciting, and super sweet. The romance is beautiful. I highly recommend it to all.

Meet Addison, a pet sty,sit on the verge of her biggest dream yet. To become a top brand name in the art of grooming fashion. Or should I say dog couture?

Once I started to read it, I couldn’t put it down. Mystery, suspense, and an adventure wait within it’s pages. Overall, I highly recommend this latest novel to readers everywhere.

Rating: 5-stars

Review:

Completely Yours by Erin Nicholas is a sweet romance that readers will love. Her  characters are so believable that I can’t believe it’s fiction! Both character wou are never have met if it wasn’t for the building that collapsed. Many were injured and luckily neither main character yet was hurt. One is a sexy EMT the other a gorgeous graphic designer. Both have the hots for each other and only time will tell if they go from this super sweet hot moment to a happily ever after…life is complicated. And their meeting just but their worlds upside down and inside out…the emotional war each character has is stunning. I felt their frustrations and feelings as if I were feeling them myself. Erin Nicholas has a way with words that leads readers like myself further into her delightful world of fiction. Completely Yours makes absolute sense when reading the novel. Each character in a way becomes the other’s complete half. I loved the brewing romance and the fire of spdesire each time the characters were near each other. Loved it. Overall, I highly recommend this contemporary romance read to all. 

Review: Something More Boxed Set by Danielle Pearl


Synopsis:

NORMAL (Book 1)

It’s the kind of situation most people would dread. Starting at a new high school, in the middle of my senior year, in a new town, in a new state. I know no one. No one knows me. That’s what I’m counting on. 
A year ago, Aurora “Rory” Pine was just a normal teenage girl – just as sweet and naive as the fairy tale princess she was named after. 
But this isn’t a year ago. 
Rory is broken, and suffering from a new debilitating anxiety disorder, wrought with precarious triggers, she moves across the country to escape the source of her troubles. Her plan is anonymity, but that’s easier said than achieved for the new girl having a panic episode outside of calculus. The worst part? There’s a witness – and a gorgeous one at that. 
Sam is a walking trigger for Rory. Incredibly handsome, built like the star athlete he obviously is, and undoubtedly popular, Sam outwardly represents everything Rory despises about high school. But as the fates keep throwing them together, a connection sparks that neither ever expected, and certainly can’t ignore. 
But Sam has issues too, and Rory’s past won’t just stay in the damned past. When friendship evolves into something deeper, can a girl utterly destroyed by the worst kind of betrayal and a boy battling demons of his own ever have a normal relationship? Is that even what they want? Find out in NORMAL, a gritty story of trust and abuse, heartbreak and salvation, and if they’re lucky – love. This is not a flowery romance – not for the faint of heart.

ReCAP (Book 1.5)

Rory and Sam fell in love in NORMAL, and we all fell in love right along with them. Now see it all unfold through Sam’s eyes, and learn just how the new girl with anxiety issues stole the heart of the gorgeous heartthrob, and turned his world upside down. 
You already heard the story. The one of how Rory and I fell in love, supposedly, even if she couldn’t handle it in the end. You know how it all went. 
Or you think you do. 
You only know her side. But I have my own point of view, and even Rory couldn’t know my thoughts in those few months it took for her to go from being a stranger to my whole entire world. 
Every moment is permanently ingrained in my memory. In my goddamned soul. From the moment I stumbled upon the girl panicking outside of calculus – the one with the tight little body, the angelic face, and the fierce attitude – to the night she abandoned me in Miami. It was the sum of those moments that changed me irrevocably. 
Our story isn’t over. I won’t let it be. But this, this is what happened so far, the way I saw it. 
I’m Cap. Or Sam, to Rory. And this is my story.
OKAY (Book 2)

After the horrors she’s survived over the past year, Rory never expected to find the one thing she certainly wasn’t looking for – love. But after the painful realization that her past has left her a dangerous liability to the person she cares for the most, she finally understands that for her and Sam, love means letting go. 
Can two people hopelessly in love ever revert back to just friends? Neither Rory nor Sam knows for sure. But the one thing they do know – it’s the only choice they have. 
As Rory recovers from a devastating assault, Sam will do anything to make sure it never happens again. But how far will he go to keep her safe? Their choices will change everything, and they will either bring them back together, or destroy them irrevocably…
Rating: 5-stars

Review:

Danielle Pearl is a talented writer. Her books lure readers into her plotlines. Like magic. The Something More Boxed Set has everything readers who enjoy romances will want. 

In Normal (book 1), we are introduced to the beginning of a realistic couple. Rory is a broken girl who falls in love with a guy she should despise…yet fate brings them together not once but many times. Maybe they’re meant for another. But then, there’s a catch. Sam’s life isn’t as perfect as Rory would assume. Relating to each of these main characters is easy. Both have heavy yet real life drama to deal with like the rest of us. This made me want to read more about Rory and Sam. 

Luckily for me, Danielle Pearl, had the second part of this couple’s story. Inside Recap (book 1.5), readers get the scoop of the same story but told in Sam’s point of view. This was brilliant on the writer to do so. Readers like myself love viewing a story from both main characters’ point of views. Because it gives the same story a deep and more emotional attachment if one point of view was left out of the book.

Last but not least, there is Okay (book 2). This novel is the epic turning point for both Rory and Sam. They both know what they should do but doing it is so much harder. This tale has a Romeo and Juliet feel to it. It’s safer if they stayed friends…but what the hearts wants can destroy them forever and is more powerful than what the brain tells them. 

Overall, I was hooked. Every page contained suspense and intrigue. I couldn’t stop reading this Boxed set. The characters pulled me inside their lives. I was trapped and excited. A thrilling sensation filled me as I followed both to the last page of Okay. The characters are complex. Their emotions was like one wild rollercoaster ride. I enjoyed every intense moment. Their relationship was a constant state of pull and push. Engaging, entertaining, and phenomenal. Danielle Pearl has clearly caught my attention with this boxed set. I highly recommend this contemporary romance set t readers everywhere. Each book, is definitely worth the time to read. Something More is exactly right. This set is something more…

Review: June Rain


Synopsis:

June Rain. Imagine-that you are young. Imagine-that by the merest of chances you meet the love of your life. Imagine-that you experience a series of wondrous moments in which almost imperceptible events take on life-changing significance. Imagine-that you walk into a storm so vast that it seems to drain all light and color from the world, and that you emerge from it with a new understanding of life and truth and God. Imagine-yourself in a world that all at once begins to sparkle in boundless sunshine…a romance of ideas by Brandon Knightley.

Rating: 4.5 stars

Review:

June Rain by Brandon Knightley is a contemporary romance novel that is enjoyable to read. I was instantly intrigued and enlightened by both of the main characters. Each character’s personality making the novel quite interesting. Refreshing, exciting, and well-developed. The story begins in a slow pace that may distract readers from continuing…however, the pace then begins to speed up…and when it does, readers will not want to stop reading. I felt a deep connection with both Dante and Helen. Two young people in love. Their story entertained me until the ending. Once, I reached that end, I felt compelled to know more about them. I hope Brandon Knightley writes more…this book definitely hooked me into his writing. 

Brandon Knightley introduced to readers to great characters. The first is Dante. He is a young man that made me love him from the beginning. His outlook on life is one that many of us miss. It was fascinating to watch him grow from a young guy into a full man. Dante is helplessly in love with a girl name Helen. Helen is beautiful, bright, and is Dante’s other half. Their raw love and chemistry is beautiful. Both think beyond their years and are good people. It was easy to relate to them within the story. Many go without ever finding their love, yet both Dante and Helen found theirs. June Rain is a feel good romance tale that life look so much brighter. Overall, I enjoyed reading this book and highly recommend it to all.

Review: This Is Our Song 


Synopsis:

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Samantha Chase crafts a tender, hopeful family-centered romance..

She knows him by reputation…
Riley Shaughnessy knew that to stand out in his large family, he’d have to go big. Making a name for himself as a musician wasn’t easy, but he followed his dreams to rock-star success. But the relentless expectations of fans is not helping the slump he’s in now. So of course the person who attracts him is the woman who is not impressed by fame.

Which gives Riley Shaughnessy a lot to prove…
Entertainment reporter Savannah Daly is completely unfazed by pretty-boy rock stars. She’s just here to get her interview and write her story. But spending an entire month with the Shaughnessys is going to show Savannah a side of Riley she never could have guessed.

Rating: 5-stars

Review:

This Is Our Song by Samantha Chase is an intoxicating contemporary read. The novel holds a lot of sass, sweetness, and intrigue. The featured couple make a great team…only if they are willing to let their hearts fall for one another. Famous rockstar singer and his big sweet loving family is enough to make any woman fall closer to the man…but still fear keeps her at bay. Even her own family loves the singer and his family. Heart melting, engaging, and definitely a page turning tale. Sexy but family orientated. A bit cheesy and a whole lot of romance. The instant sparks between the journalist and rock star are enough to heat up the day and make readers blush. I loved the way the siblings were all there together. The father and son bond was beautifully done as well. A song writer who is experiencing writer’s Block and is frustrated beyond meets a woman who isn’t happy about doing his interview. Yet when they finally meet…both can’t forget the other or let go of each other. Is it fate? 

Samantha Chase has brilliantly spun another fabulous title. I love her world of fiction. Irresistible characters, thrilling plotline, and a fast-paced tempothat will keep readers interested until the last page. I love how Samantha Chase creates magic within her books. This was a stunning magical journey that I want to revisit again. There was so many the,see to love about this story. Family, love, dreams, and finding oneself. This Is Our Song was perfect. I highly recommend it to all.

Review:

I Was A Bitch by Emily Ruben was the most fantastic drama emotional coaster that I have ever read. Okay, that was a mouth full of a sentence but it’s true. Emily Ruben sent me deep into her character’s life. From the title, readers like myself can guess what happens…but none are like this beginning. Compelling from the start to end. It led me wanting to know…kept turning the pages and before I knew it, I had finished. I was beyond pleased with this novel. The young woman’s tale wrapped itself into my heart and soul.  I felt her confusion and wonderment as she realized her situation. Imagine waking up, and thinking your one thing when, you’re actual not. Then people come bursting in and your left thinking exactly who was I…

Lacey was a teenage girl who was the baddest bitch in high school territory. Somehow that life crashed and she found herself in the current state of confusion. Lacey grew up…her personality changed and her direction towards others did so as well. I loved her for that. The realization of who she really was and who she wanted to be was a huge question throughout the book. I was definitely rooting for this queen bee. Lacey has a way of drawing in readers like myself to her. Something about her…keeps one interested. I don’t want to give away too much, but this was overall the best read ever. I Was A Bitch is a novel all females need to read, regardless of their age. I found myself wanting to re-read the entire story again. It felt so real that it was hard to put down…I can see this becoming a big screen picture. I really hope it does. Emily Ruben is indeed a talented writer. She baited, lured, and hooked me into it. I can’t wait to read more of her work in the future. I Was A Bitch is a must read for all.

Rating: 5 stars

Review:

The Holiday Gift by RaeAnne Thayne is a cozy heart melting tale. Two best friends who harbored a secret love for one another. Yet neither one wanted to destroy their friendship. The friendship works perfectly until both are single adults once more…

A good looking cowboy loved his female best friend since the beginning. But he didn’t know how to tell her. Then, before he realized it was too late, she was taken by another man. His chance came and went. Now, years afterwards, he’s divorced and she’s a widow. Both have a daughter from their marriages.

As the holiday comes around, can two best friends be bold enough to close the gap and let loose their real feelings? RaeAnne Thayne has once again created a beautifully story that winds itself into readers hearts and souls. It touched me deeply. Sad, frustrating, funny, and sweet. I enjoyed the emotional roller coaster ride and look forward to reading the next book by this talented writer. The Holiday Gift is truly a must read for all.

Review: Leaving Amy 




Synopsis:

Amy thought she had it figured out—followed her heart and moved forward…but life isn’t always so simple. Things tend to drag you back to familiarity, or in Amy’s case—people. Wesley returns from his stint of love and betrayal, and has a favor to ask of her. When Amy agrees to help, all that was moving forward in her life comes to a halt. As Amy tries to fix the loved ones around her, she begins to lose all that she’s gained. And when the smoke clears, she’s more confused about what’s meant to be and who it’s meant to be with.

Rating: 5 stars

Review:

Leaving Amy by Julieann Dove is the second tale inside this amazing series. Once more, Julieann Dove has lured readers like myself into her fictional world. I loved following Amy, the leading character, into her new journey. Inside the first one, we found that she and her husband parted. Betrayal and the finding of new love. Then, readers get to this novel, and we see Amy’s new romance coming to a halt. Her world was doing fine until her ex-husband comes walking back into it. Complicated matters turn more complex and devastinng than Amy thought. Life is messy. Julieann Dove has taken life’s greatest and worst moments and spun it into her latest tale. Every thing happens for a reason. The novel, still has the powerful emotional pull that drags me further into the plot. Heartfelt, compelling, and brilliantly told. This second part showed readers a story that is more real and believable than most contemporary novels. I enjoyed that aspect of reading this book. If every novel were happy, swoon worthy, then it would be dull. However,  that’s not the case with Leaving Amy. Never a dull moment. Sad yes. But entertaining too. The most powerful tool with this series and this particular read is that Julieann Dove kept her readers guessing. I never knew what to expect next nor how it would end…and now, I need to know the final piece.  I see Amy growing with each book. Overall, Leaving Amy is a romance that readers can definitely relate to as well as enjoy. I highly recommend this to readers everywhere. 

Review: Burning Obsession

 

 

Synopsis:

Her head whipped around. Long, sleek blond strands slashed across her face, sticking to her crimson lips. Her gaze locked with mine. Her tawny, mostly golden eyes were wide. Excitement—hot and bright—flared in them.

That was when it happened. Lightning struck.

For two years, Kyle Jenns dodged danger and bullets with his now-best friend, Ari Bax, when ruined investors of the exclusive resort 10,000 Lux sabotaged not just the hotel, but also targeted Ari. Now with the bad guys locked up and Kyle being a full-fledged bodyguard and head of security at the Lux, he’s ready to start the next chapter of his life. Having absolutely no idea it’s going to happen the moment he lays eyes on a stunning blond named Tamera Fenmore.

The chemistry between them is instantaneous and hot. But Tamera’s suddenly in the crosshairs of a killer, needing Kyle’s protection as much as she needs his passionate kisses. The danger escalates along with Kyle’s own burning obsession for Tamera—and everything he’s learned as a bodyguard will be put to the ultimate test when it comes to saving her.

Rating: 5 stars

Review:

Burning Obsession by Calista Fox is another fabulous read. The writer has done it again! She has created another world full of lusty scenes and a compelling plotline. I was hooked. Kyle Jens is the sexy superhero kind of man. Just his presence alone could make any woman melt on the spot. His charming personality makes him the most wanted bachelor. Add his protective bodyguard skills and he’s got it all. Kyle has it all…but love. The only part of his life that is missing… He seems to sense this and is at an all time loss on where and what to look for…but then, one specific lady appears out of nowhere. One that changed his life forever. Love is something that you can’t live without…and Tamera Fenmore is just that for Kyle. Chemistry burns red hot between characters. There are danger and plenty of action. Readers will fall in love with this novel. Exactly as I have. Burning Obsession is indeed the perfect title to an irresistible story. Calista Fox knew what she was doing when she created this masterpiece. Overall, I recommend this hot romance to readers everywhere.

Review: Shylock is My Name


Synopsis:

Man Booker Prize-winner Howard Jacobson brings his singular brilliance to this modern re-imagining of one of Shakespeare’s most unforgettable characters: Shylock

 Winter, a cemetery, Shylock. In this provocative and profound interpretation of “The Merchant of Venice,” Shylock is juxtaposed against his present-day counterpart in the character of art dealer and conflicted father Simon Strulovitch. With characteristic irony, Jacobson presents Shylock as a man of incisive wit and passion, concerned still with questions of identity, parenthood, anti-Semitism and revenge. While Strulovich struggles to reconcile himself to his daughter Beatrice’s “betrayal” of her family and heritage – as she is carried away by the excitement of Manchester high society, and into the arms of a footballer notorious for giving a Nazi salute on the field – Shylock alternates grief for his beloved wife with rage against his own daughter’s rejection of her Jewish upbringing. Culminating in a shocking twist on Shylock’s demand for the infamous pound of flesh, Jacobson’s insightful retelling examines contemporary, acutely relevant questions of Jewish identity while maintaining a poignant sympathy for its characters and a genuine spiritual kinship with its antecedent—a drama which Jacobson himself considers to be “the most troubling of Shakespeare’s plays for anyone, but, for an English novelist who happens to be Jewish, also the most challenging.”

Rating: 5 stars

Review:

Shylock Is My Name by Howard Jacobson is a modern rebelling of Willian Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice. I truly enjoyed reading this new literary novel. It was fascinating to follow. From the start to end I was enchanted with the characters. Especially, Shylock. There is so much depth to him. This character’s struggles are engaging. Some are easy to understand while others are more complicated. Both internal and external conflicts are shown throughout the read. The other characters, Strulovitch and Zionist add to the tale. Their roles are quite interesting. The modern twist and drama soak up readers into an entertaining adventure filled with humor, betrayal, grief and rejection. Howard Jacobson has indeed captured William Shakespeare’s tale and brought to life a brilliant new masterpiece. This satire will leave readers like myself begging for another book, told by this talented writer. 

Shylock Is My Name is a new compelling piece of fiction that’s fresh, exciting, and keeps readers guessing. The style of writing is easy to read. The pages seem to fly by as readers delve deeper into the story. What I loved about this book, was that Howard Jacobson brought in a culture and heritage that is popular even today. The Jews and hatred towards them. Then there’s the issues of those leaving behind their Jewish heritage. Today, we see a lot of that as well. Other topics like revenge and anger are displayed. Once, I opened this novel, I couldn’t stop reading it at all. Howard Jacobson has a way of drawing his readers to his characters and their lives. Beautifully woven. Overall, I highly recommend Shylock Is My Name to readers everywhere.

Rating: 5 stars

Review:

Random Acts of Marriage by Boone Brux is a contemporary romance novel that all will love. It takes readers on an emotional rollercoaster. Feelings such as sadness, indecision, and warmth will tug at readers’ hearts. The emotions felt raw and very much real. Internal struggles were powerful within this read. Readers will also meet families that are quirky and highly entertaining. Both families really cared about each other. That part was beautifully done. Boone Brux kept me in suspense throughout the novel. Love was the main theme and well played.  Addictive from the start, I couldn’t tear away from the book.  Instantly hooked. The leading female character has flaws that draw readers closer to her. Relationships in her past that didn’t go well…and so, she was determined to stay away from them. However, fate brought what she didn’t want in her life. Where it will go is something I highly recommend to readers to read. Fun is something the character doesn’t want but is trapped into by her best friend. From there the scenes get more interesting. Thus, enters Price. He meets Kinni and wants to do everything he can to keep her. But getting under her skin and staying there will be the hardest thing ever. I enjoyed reading this brilliant romance. It was sweet, funny, and well-developed. Overall, I recommend it to readers everywhere.

Rating: 5 stars

Review:

Drawn to a Cowboy by Fifi Flowers is another brilliant masterpiece by this talented writer. I love her books. The characters are created with just the right amount or realism to make them believable. Sexy heroes and a strong heroine. A combination that I love.

Here, inside Drawn to a Cowboy, two characters meet by chance. Boy does fate have things in store for them. Neither character planned on it but both will be stuck like glue. Fiesty, addictive, and sweet. Who knew a cowboy would come to an artist’s recuse by offering her a job at his ranch. Once he makes the offer, he’s not sure how or what will transpire next. But the heat turns up higher with every page. The undeniable attraction will keep readers turning the pages. The sexy cowboy has just presented one woman a chance that she will have to risk. His good looks have her thoughts all jumbled but what happens next is amazing. Fifi Flowers has created a romance, readers can’t resist. Her writing is definitely out of this world…as well as an exciting plot that moves by quickly and tempting situations that readers love. Overall, I highly recommend this beautiful engaging romance to all.

 

Review: Mortal Musings


Synopsis:

Muse Alexandra has had it with the arrogant, ungrateful humans she is obligated to inspire. When the internal ranting of her latest charge pushes her past reason, she disregards the rules and forces her own words through his fingers, and is instantly entrapped in mortal form. With no magic, no identity, and no resources, Allie has no alternative but to navigate the mortal realm, depending entirely on her reluctant host while discerning what exactly caused her transformation–and how to reverse it.

Brett doesn’t have a chance to consider the words that mysteriously showed up on his screen; he’s too distracted by the stunning woman who appeared in his office out of nowhere. Before his brain can catch up, Brett’s uninvited guest becomes enmeshed in his everyday life. Her artless innocence gradually lessens his suspicions. Most importantly, the writer’s block that’s been plaguing him dissolves under the fantasies the naively beguiling Alexandra inspires.

All too soon, the forced proximity sparks a confounding awareness neither writer nor muse are able to resist.

Rating: 5 stars

Review:

Mortal Musings by Ari Glazki is amazing. A paranormal love story that will leave readers satisfied in every way. A man who needs inspiration to help his writer’s block is doomed. He obviously wasn’t succeeding with his muse’s help. Before Alexandra knew it she was in mortal form before the male writer. Just seeing her, she inspired so many ideas as well as fantasies. The writer, Brett, soon earns attention for his writing but then Allie aka Alexandra disappears. 

Ari Glazki’s novel is stunning. The characters are dreamy and realistic. They’re instant bond of chemistry builds and unbearable heat. The suspense of what will occur between the writer and his muse is great. The action and dialogue moves the plot forward. Fast and easy to read in one sitting. I loved following the characters as they came to terms with their feelings. I still wasn’t sure how the ending would be until I arrived there. Romantic, sweet, and addictive. Ari Glazki’s writing is superb. Well-written and well-developed. I highly recommend Mortal Musings to all.

Review: Just One Week

Synopsis:

Keeping his hands off is a test he’s bound to fail—especially when they’re stuck in close quarters. But falling in love with Michelle, living in her world, isn’t an option for a guy like him. And remembering that will save them both a lot of heartache…

Rating: 5 stars

Review:

Just One Week by Alice Gaines is an sexy, hilarious, yet entertaining read. This novel mentions how to friends grew apart over an incident and now, they are finally facing each other again. Except neither one expected the other to be so hot looking. Remembering each other as the other kid is one thing but now as adults their their secret crush on each other will come to light. Fighting chemistry is a losing situation. Michelle and Alex can’t ignore the heat, or else it will consume them beyond repair. As they are forced to be together for family anniversary, they will have to be in each other’s sight all the time. However, Alex is dealing with three issues. His desire for Michelle, getting her to forgive him for the incident that happened years ago, and fighting the fear of what his best friend will think. Having a crush on a best friend’s sister is not cool. So many relationships can get screwed up, however, if it’s already screwed up what harm can come? Delicious, intriguing, and beautifully written. I could not put the novel down…the characters will keep readers reading all night long. Overall, I loved the strong characters and their differences. It made the story feel real. I highly recommend Alice Gaines’ novel Just One Week to all.

Rating: 5 stars

Review:

Sealionaire (book one) by both M.S. Parker and Shiloh Walker is a brilliant short romance read. Hot, sexy, and irresistible…double check. Then, add in a powerful emotional journey. I was not only baited but hooked. This first book gave me the taste for the next masterfully written installment. There was action. Plenty of action to move readers forward. The writing duet also gavel sad yet heartfelt tug to the story. Danger, loss, grief and and spice that’s not quite clearly defined. That meant there might me more of the spicy scenes or less. I cannot wait to get my hands on the next book. This one held several unexpected twists. Readers won’t know what hit them…overall, I loved this new romance. The writers style worked well. I fell in love with their work and look forward to the second one. I highly recommend Sealionaire to readers everywhere. 

Review: Unlucky in Love

 

Synopsis:

Tired of being the dependable, steady—and apparently boring—one, Alexis hopes that a cross-country road trip will help her loosen up and find her inner sparkle. Her first stop is the Whisper Creek Ranch, where the hot wranglers are sure to bring out her inner party girl. The trouble is, she can’t stand pretending to be someone she’s not—especially around the cowboy who tempts her to stay put.

Gunnar Peterson has spent six months working at Whisper Creek, and he’s never been happier. Having grown up an army brat, he’s ready to put down roots, and the only thing missing is a woman to share his life with. When Alexis blows into town, Gunnar thinks he may have met his match, despite the wild-child facade he sees right through. But Alexis swears she won’t settle down anytime soon—so it’s up to Gunnar to convince her that what she’s looking for . . . is right here.

Rating: 5 stars

Review:

Unlucky in Love by Maggie McGinnis is the best romance. I love the characters, the scenes and all. Maggie McGinnis has a way of showing a story to readers and leaving them in the story even after they have reached the last page. The emotions were real. The tension from both of the main characters was like a playing a tug of war with themselves and not winning. A sexy hot cowboy, who has had it rough in growing up…doesn’t want to be anything like his father. He keeps trying not to fall for the red headed beauty that walked into his life. But something keeps tugging him right back to her. Like an undeniable attraction of a magnet. Then, there’s the good girl nurse. She does everything to help her mother who can be a lot to handle at times. Her younger sister ends of leaving the majority of responsibility onto her shoulders. However, her sister is also, a good friend when it comes to her bad ex. Being left two weeks before one’s wedding is a raw enough scar…but only time will tell if both the cowboy and nurse can have a happily ever after or forever e cursed.  Unlucky in Love is a new must read for all. I can’t think of one reason why readers wouldn’t love this contemporary sweet yet sexy romance. One that takes place in the West. Did I mention hot cowboys with a heart of gold? Overall, I highly recommend this novel to all.

Rating: 5 stars

Review:

The Unseen World by Liz Moore reminds me of a show I loved watching, Person of Interest. It’s a fascinating adventure and a deeply emotional journey that one woman takes. The similarities are interesting. Both feature a man who isn’t a socialite and one who happens to be very brilliant. This book shows us a daughter a has inherited her father’s cleverness and a need to know more about her father. I found myself easily drawn to the main characters, especially the daughter. I instantly felt her pain and frustration as her father is slowing falling apart.  As he keeps falling from the man he once was, questions started to pop up and then the quest for the answers began. Liz Moore knew how to hook her readers in from the first page until the last. The tale is one that kept me on the edge of my seat wondering. I enjoyed following Ada as she searched for what she needed to know. The Unseen World brought forth a story of a daughter who loves her father and one that held so many hidden secrets. Overall, I highly recommend this brilliant novel to all.

Review: Bad Napkin

Bad Napkin by [Sharman, T.]

 

Synopsis:

The young adult comedy about love, lies and lists.

“. . .this delightful, quirky book . . . A zany and satisfying story for fans of YA tales that pack as much humor as they do heart.” – Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

When Sophy’s backpack is turtled, Russ finds a plus-minus list on a napkin stuck to the bottom of a copy of The Catcher in the Rye. He knows with certainty Sophy wrote it about him. Except Julie wrote it about her boyfriend Freddie, the school’s oddly sexy football quarterback. Russ decides to change himself to save his relationship with Sophy. But then he writes his own plus-minus list about her in revenge. And that’s when things start to go very wrong.

Sophy’s research project. Julie’s list on a napkin. A terrible discovery. Feeble self-improvement. Horrifying betrayal. The McRib. A watermelon named Brittany. A cyber-wedgie. A cactus-wedgie. A beautiful girl with a foul mouth. A foul girl with a beautiful mouth. And love. And kissing – lots and lots of kissing (with perhaps a bit too much tongue at times).

Rating: 5 stars

Review:

Bad Napkin by T.S.W. Sharman is a hilarious read that will bring readers in every time. I thoroughly enjoyed this laugh-out-loud title. The characters were a variety of kinds that made the plot juicy and ripe. Teenagers whose struggles and perfections made them interesting individuals. A popular girl ends up in a super awkward situation due to a friend of hers taking a list that was written about a terrible boyfriend. It was about Julie’s boyfriend…except Russ, who likes Sophie thought it was about him. So, he then decides to improve himself for her. But what happens next is a dramatic roller-coaster full of ups and downs as well as love. T.S.W. Sharman writes a charming novel that will keep readers coming back time and time again. Themes like being young, finding love, and friendship can be found within this stunning novel. I absolutely loved following the characters’ growth as the story unfolded. The mood swings were crazy but in a realistic yet believable way. Overall, Bad Napkin is a definite must read for readers everywhere.

Review: Remembering Everly

Remembering Everly (Lost & Found Book 2) by [Berg, J.L.]

 

Synopsis:

After two years in a coma, August Kinkaid has forgotten the darkness in his past. But his past hasn’t forgotten him.

He let her slip away once. He’s not about to spend the rest of his life remembering Everly when he could be holding her in his arms forever . . .

Rating: 5 stars

Review:

Remembering Everly by J.L. Berg is indeed a fascinating novel. Here, readers are brought into a tale woven with regret, pain, and a hope for second chances. Plus, a love between two characters that has not yet faded. There might just be hope for a man who’s jaded and a woman intended on moving forward despite everything…

J.L. Berg’s writing swallowed me up…the more a man’s memory came to him, the worst the separation from his only love felt. Themes like betrayal, love, fate and hope lie deep within this novel. Remembering Everly is more than just a contemporary romance read. An emotional journey that dragged me into the feeling of loss, despair, anger, and happiness. Wounds take time, to heal. With every step of the way…we must calculate our every move. None of us know when or what will happen next. August Kinkaid is a man to analyze and to cheer for…his movements were rocky at best in the past…and now, with a second chance at life, he’s going to have to fight for a clean record. Happiness doesn’t come easily and that’s portrayed realistically inside this title. I was amazed at how easily it was to connect with the characters. Their struggles, thoughts, and emotions became mine. After having read this novel, I can clearly say that relationships are a battle to be fought and reckoned with…overall, I highly recommend this beautifully written tale to all.

 

Review: One Look At You

One Look At You by [Hartwell, Sofie]

 

Synopsis:

Livie is wrapped up in her new life and ready to face whatever comes. She’s got an ideal job at an international company, a stellar reputation as a personal assistant to one of the top finance executives in the company, and three friends who she shares just about everything with. Weekends are for chores, but with a roommate who needs cheering up, it’s hard to turn down a night out with the group. It never occurs to her that the single night out might be more than she’s bargained for and that she would meet that cool stranger at the bar. For better or for worse, though, the next morning finds her with little memory of the night’s events, and more worries, than she’s counted on.

When she shows up for work, she finds out that a new Chief Financial Officer is due to arrive soon. To her shock and dismay, it turns out to be the handsome stranger from Saturday night. Whether he’ll recognize her or not, or how soon, is hard to tell, but before she knows it, Livie’s life is far more complicated than she’d imagined it could become.

Review: Stealing Taffy

 

Synopsis:

Rating: 5 stars

Review:

Stealing Taffy by Susan Donovan is a fabulous adventure for all readers to lose themselves within…imagine going to the airport and seeing the most attractive man around…one that leaves you staring and staring at him forever until he meets your gaze and suddenly you’re caught. Fate is a funny thing. After coming out of the women’s bathroom almost late for the plane ride…Taffy is seated next to the hot man she was caught checking out moments before the plane ride. The federal agent thought he would be stuck next to a fat sweaty man and instead he was sitting next to a gorgeous woman. Her hair was a reddish color and she was wearing some shade of pink. Once she sits down she talks nonstop. But Dante doesn’t care. He thinks she’s stupid because she asked where Brooklyn was located and he found out that she might be super crazy. Got shoplifting, writing checks, and a lot of other issues. Taffy thinks Dante is super hot and she would love nothing more than to bed him. However, she’s trying to stay away from all men and make up for her life’s mistakes. But then the weather had to bed and they both end up doing what they shouldn’t.

Stealing Taffy is hilarious, sexy, and sweet. There is never a boring moment with Taffy around. She has a lot of mistakes to apologize for and the one she isn’t looking forward to is her sister. Both lost their parents and have since then made life hell for each other. However, Taffy made life worse for her sister, grandpa and a bunch of others. Including a jealous ex who is worse than originally mentioned. The heated chemistry between the federal agent and a woman with a felony is undeniably out of this world. Neither one can get the other out of their thoughts. Taffy is well-mannered, southern belle, and pretty. She can be mega tough and super sweet. I enjoyed following Taffy’s adventures and Dante’ step towards accepting his feelings for Taffy. Overall, I highly recommend this romance to all.

The Playboy’s Proposal by Ashlee Mallory is one that features a proposal made between two exact opposites. One is a smart loving doctor with no social life but her family. Then there is the neighbor. He’s hot sexy and extremely wealthy. Except there is one minor problem…okay scratch that…a major issue at play.

It there that they start hanging out in order to up a doctor’s social love life. Only there’s much at stake here. Hearts might just get broken in the process unless fate has other ideas…

The Playboy’s Proposal is the first novel I have read by Ashlee Mallory. I was immediately taken in with her characters. Both of the characters have sad stories. But maybe fate can pull them a happy ending. The chemistry is hot enough to start the pages on fire. Kissing that leads to dreams of wanting more…but is it something that they really want? I got swept off my feet and pulled into the story. Fast-paced and well told. I loved following the hot tale as well as the emotional journey. Overall, The Playboy’s Proposal is definitely a romance novel I recommend to all.

Review:

Wrapped in You by Jules Bennett is a contemporary romance that instantly drags readers into the plot. This is a hot, sexy, sizzling read. The action and intrigue will continue to capture the hearts, souls, and minds of readers. I myself have fallen in love with the story. Deep and emotional. The journey is stunning. Wrapped in You is about loss, love, and hope for the future. Many hearts are on the line and only time will tell if they heal or worsen…

Jules Bennett’s writing is superb. I am fascinated by her world of fiction. This was the first of her novels, I have read. Believable plot lines and irresistible characters. Wrapped in You will wrap itself around readers and keep them held in for a long time. Funny, sweet, sad, yet highly satisfying. Jules Bennett’s latest novel brings a lot to digest. It’s definitely worth reading. Loss of a loved one, past injuries and mistakes and an old love flame that keeps burning hotter with every page. Trust, hope, and love may just be within the reach for these perfect characters. Or maybe not. Readers will run after the bad boy Zach who has a lot to live, through…like the loss of a sister, hard feelings between him and his brother, and then the woman he loved and left hurting.  Overall, I highly recommend this brilliant romance to all.
