WEEKLY WRAP-UP: October 23rd

This week brought a little of everything, from light to angsty, slow burn to steamy, funny to heartbreaking. While not everything was a complete win, one of this week’s releases (The Cabin) is my favorite book of the year so far. Out of over 300 romances. If you’re looking for something a little different that will break your heart (before it puts it back together again), give it a try.

If you read my Teaser Tuesday post (found here), you know that there are more exciting books on the way next week. I’ll have reviews going up 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 this week’s Deals and Steals list.


⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Absolutely LOVED this

Sometimes the epilogue to one story is the beginning of another.

From Wall Street Journal bestselling author Jasinda Wilder comes an all-new, emotionally gripping novel, The Cabin, available now! 

One year ago, I buried my husband. 

One year ago, I held his hand and said goodbye. 

Now I spend most of my days lost somewhere between trying to remember every smallest detail of our lives, and trying to forget it all. I fill my hours with work until I’m too exhausted to remember him, to feel anything at all. 

One year, 365 days—and then one knock at my door changes everything. A letter from him, a last request, a secret will: 

My dearest Nadia,

Trust me, my love. One last time, trust me. Sometimes the epilogue to one story is the beginning of another.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Ruggedly unique

Arrested. Wrongfully accused. Sentenced to ten years.

But the steel bars release me early. 

After serving half of my time for a crime I didn’t commit, they grant me parole—with a very short leash. My second chance at freedom begins now, and I won’t waste it. I should’ve been paying more attention.

Ambushed. Captured. Stranded.

When I wake in the depths of a snowy forest, all seems lost. I’ve been left alone in the wilderness with zero means of escape. Until someone rouses beside me.

I recognize Blakely Cross instantly, yet she’s barely more than a stranger. Now she’s stuck with me in the worst possible place, as collateral damage. 

Blakely blames me, and rightfully so. This entire situation is my fault. Our destinies are inadvertently twisted together by forces far larger than us. Whether she hates me or not, we need each other to stay alive.

Cope. Adapt. Persevere. 

They tossed us out to be buried, but underestimated our determination. The bond we’re building will overcome the harshest conditions. 

And we’re not willing to surrender.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Unexpected and sexy

Alaric Prince. Powerful. Arrogant. Dangerous. And my father’s enemy.

My plan was simple.

Get invited onto his yacht.

Find information to destroy him.

But I wasn’t prepared for Alaric Prince.

Dangerous and seductive, he trapped me in his gilded cage.

He calls me Dove.

Easily preyed on.

Easily broken.

A man that ruthless only wants to crush me.

I must resist the temptation to let him.

He’s my father’s enemy.

At war with my family.

A danger to me.

Falling for him would be my demise.

But if my plan works, it will be his.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Light and fun

I may be a shy, lowly letter carrier, but when my beloved apartment building is threatened by a mysterious and reclusive billionaire, I’m willing to push the envelope. 

I’m going to march right up to Malcolm Blackberg’s fortress of fierceness and deliver a cease-and-desist notice he can’t refuse. 

Only, no sooner do I get inside his gilded doors than things go sideways–fast. 

I’m mistaken for Malcolm’s court-ordered emotional IQ coach, as if I’m acting out a wacky postal carrier cosplay. 

They drag me in, a sacrificial lamb for the big bad. 

Make that big, smolderingly sexy bad. 

So I make up a lesson involving a story about our building as he glares and fumes. 

Can he tell that I have no idea what I’m doing?

Before I know it I’m flying around the country, up close and personality testing the most devilishly exasperating man I’ve ever met. 

He’s scary for sure…but the way he sometimes looks at me turns my knees to jelly and has me writing love letters to his gorgeous eyes, his mouthwatering smile, his impressive…package. 

Our coaching sessions are getting hot-hot-hot, but I can’t let my guard down. 

If he ever finds out I’m a first-class fake, I’ll lose everything I’ve ever loved in this world…

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Forbidden fire

From bestselling author, Dr. Rebecca Sharp, comes a sexy, best-friend’s father forbidden romance…

𝐅𝐚𝐜𝐭: Damien Milanovic was a pharmaceutical superhero, masked with gilded glasses and a starched white cape. Intelligent. Illustrious. Impermissible. He was the chemist who decided that curing cancer—curing death—was worth the price of not living his own life.

𝙷𝚢𝚙𝚘𝚝𝚑𝚎𝚝𝚒𝚌𝚊𝚕𝚕𝚢, how bad would it be if I had a crush on him?

𝐅𝐚𝐜𝐭: I was Lilith Montgomery, the smartest student in my class and the most popular girl in school. All I needed to graduate was to finish this chemistry internship with Dr. Milanovic. What I would learn would be invaluable to my future, but it wasn’t the only reason I was there.

𝙷𝚢𝚙𝚘𝚝𝚑𝚎𝚝𝚒𝚌𝚊𝚕𝚕𝚢, how wrong would it be to use the internship as an opportunity to seduce the cold, captivating chemist?

𝐅𝐚𝐜𝐭: Damien Milanovic was also my best friend’s father.

𝙷𝚢𝚙𝚘𝚝𝚑𝚎𝚝𝚒𝚌𝚊𝚕𝚕𝚢, how impossible would it be for us to fall in love?

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Problematic

From USA Today Best Selling Author comes a brand new Hockey Series Only One!

Miller
They called me the pretty boy on and off the ice. Hockey’s most eligible bachelor.

When my teammate asked me to donate one date to his charity, I figured why not. Worst case, I’d spend the night with a fan. Best-case scenario, she would be hot. What I wasn’t expecting was for my dream girl to be the highest bidder.

For years, she brushed me off, and now, I finally had a chance to take her out and show her who I really was.

With only one shot at this, I really hoped I didn’t mess it up.

Layla
At the top of my career, I was riding the wave of my sports talk show having the best rating on the radio.

I also made it a rule to never date any sports players.

It was my one rule, and I was sticking to it until I bid on the only man who gets under my skin.

All it takes is one touch, one night, one kiss, and only one chance.
