WEEKLY WRAP-UP: May 29th

What a week!!! After a quiet holiday weekend, this week was PACKED with new announcements and exciting releases. I can’t even tell you how many books I added to my TBR, and some great new reads came out. And next week…. is bursting at the seams with new books! This spring is filled with SO MANY awesome books.

If you read my Teaser Tuesday post (found here), you know that next week’s new releases include something for every mood, from a mafia new adult romance to rom coms to sexy reads. I’ll have new reviews throughout the week!

If you missed any of this week’s reviews, I’ve got the blurb and rating for each below. There’s also a link to my list of the 10 June Releases I’m Most Excited About, my list of 15 Loving, Protective Romance Heroes, and my Deals and Steals list. Monday brings a new month and LOTS of new freebies and deals!


⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Light and steamy

Boss babe. Ice Queen.
That’s what they call me at the office.
But there‘s one man who has secretly melted me for years.
Kaede McWarren.

The only problem? He’s my big brother’s best friend.

But when he asks me to play his fiancée to seal a business deal?
Oh, I’m taking this gift horse and riding it while I can.

He’s got the whole tall, handsome, and intense thing down pat… with a side of quiet mystery and sexy brains to boot.
He’s everything I want. Everything I need.

It should be easy—a business arrangement between two Type-A workaholics. A few dinner dates here, a few kisses there, and none will be the wiser.

But if his business partner finds out it’s fake, he’s screwed. And if my brother finds out it’s real, he might be dead.

There are a hundred ways to lose, but when I’m in his arms, I feel like I’ve already won.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Sporty slow burn

A hot-headed college golfer falls for her swing coach in this fun and sexy sports romance.

Lincoln Reeves may be a pro golfer and revered swing coach, but when I meet him, he is just one more person telling me I’m not good enough.


So, I do what any girl in my position would do. I tell him to get lost and take his arrogant, annoying smirk with him. I never expect to see him again. I certainly don’t expect to run into him that same night after one too many tequila shots.

Turns out that he’s kind of a big deal. Okay, fine, a really big deal. In fact, he might be the one person who can take my game to the next level.

Convincing him to help will be difficult.

Not throwing my club at his handsome face when he makes me work harder than I thought humanly possible will be excruciating.

But not falling for him will be the hardest thing of all.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Sexy and suspenseful

Two broken hearts find love and healing in each other in this sexy contemporary romance spin-off from the New York Times bestselling author of the Rock Chick and Dream Man series.

Evan “Evie” Gardiner has spent her whole life being the responsible one in her family, but enough is enough. It’s time to pursue her own dreams. Evie’s finally going to finish that engineering degree she’s been working toward. But first she needs to come up with the money to pay for tuition. Working as a dancer at Smithie’s club seems like the perfect solution to her problems . . . until her family lands in yet another scrape and comes to Evie for help. Only, this time, her family’s recklessness is risking more than her dreams-it’s endangering her life. 

Daniel “Mag” Magnusson knows a thing or two about desperation and disappointment, but no one notices that his good looks and quick wit hide the painful memories that haunt him. When Evie’s family puts her in danger, Mag insists on offering Evie his protection. He has the skills to guard Evie’s life, but as they grow closer, Mag realizes he’ll need to come face-to-face with his demons to prove himself as the man who will protect her heart.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ An angsty ride

Tyler didn’t set out to break my heart… 

But life doesn’t give marks for good intentions.

Now, I’ll stop at nothing to achieve my dreams. I’m done playing by anyone else’s rules.

But when Tyler shows up in the last place I expect, with secrets and a confession… 

There will be a reckoning.

Because the naive girl he shattered is gone.

And the woman in her place is ready for a fight.

A LOVE SONG FOR REBELS is Book 2 in the angsty new adult, academy-inspired Rivals trilogy and should be read following A LOVE SONG FOR LIARS (Rivals #1).

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Light and easy

Violet Abrams may have been a bridesmaid no less than seven times, but her wedding day was near—she could feel it. Until her longtime boyfriend left her for someone else. That’s just fine—she has her photography and a new project redesigning her sister’s bakery to keep her happy and fulfilled. Fast-forward to the day of his wedding, though, when Violet might have accidentally, totally not on purpose, started a fire. And… Officially the worst day ever.

Firefighter Ford Maguire thought he’d seen it all. Until he’s called out because someone tried to set the local bakery on fire…with a wedding magazine? The little arsonist might be the cutest woman he’s ever seen, but he’s too career-focused to consider something serious. Still, Violet seems like a great person to help him navigate his upcoming “man of honor” duties in his best friend’s wedding.

Pretty soon, not only is Violet giving him lessons on all things weddings, she’s helping him train his latest rescue-dog recruit puppies and weaving her way seamlessly into his lone-wolf lifestyle. But forever is the last thing on Ford’s mind, and if there’s one thing a perpetual bridesmaid knows, it’s the importance of a happily ever after.

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Too sweet for me

A homeless young woman finds an unexpected family in beloved New York Times bestselling author Carolyn Brown’s novel of healing hearts and new beginnings in a small Texas town.

In the fading town of Rooster, Texas, all that’s really left is a service station, a church…and the Banty House, a long-ago Depression-era brothel. For more than seventy-five years, Betsy, Connie, and Kate Carson have called their mama’s house a home. The three eccentric sisters get by just fine with their homemade jams and jellies, a little moonshine on the side, and big hearts always open to strangers. Like Ginger Andrews.

An abandoned teen with a baby on the way and nowhere to go, she’s given a room to call her own for as long as she wants. The kind invitation is made all the sweeter when Ginger meets the sisters’ young handyman, Sloan Baker. But with a past as broken as Ginger’s, he’s vowed never to get close to anyone again. As a season of change unfolds, Ginger and Sloan might discover a warm haven to heal in the Banty House, a place to finally belong, where hope and dreams never fade.
