⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Subtle and sexy

I look forward to every book in this series, and Game Changer was no exception. It’s a sweet and sexy friends to lovers romance that’s as subtle as it is heartwarming. Jamieson does a great job building intimacy, writing those small moments that move a relationship forward through dialogue and steamy scenes where you can... Continue Reading →

COVER REVEAL: Mr. Knightsbridge by Louise Bay

I've been meaning to check out Louise Bay's work, and this blurb just might be the one to hook me in! Mr. Knightsbridge releases on July 7th - get all details below. BLURB: Dexter Daniels prefers gems over women. Emeralds over girlfriends. Diamonds over marriage. He might be the most successful jeweler of his generation,... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Super angsty

This took a completely different path than I expected, but it’s a really heartwarming read. Undoubtedly, the hero steals the show here; there were a couple of moments early on where I thought he might break my heart, but I should’ve trusted the author. It’s an ANGSTY, heart-wrenching journey to happily ever after, crafted with... Continue Reading →

15 Bad Boys Who Fall Hard

I love good guy heroes, but sometimes I'm in the mood for a man who is a little more... complicated. A bad boy with a troubled past; a mob boss whose concept of right/wrong straddles a fine line; a great man hiding behind a cocky grin. There are different levels to these bad boys, but... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Quick and steamy

Short and not so sweet, this delivers on its promise to be steamy with a touch of the forbidden. It’s got Whitney G’s distinctive writing style - a light feel that reads quickly, solid dialogue, and plenty of steamy moments - pared down to only the essentials. We get a feel for the relationship via... Continue Reading →

WEEKLY WRAP-UP: June 5th

What a week! I've got to admit, it was a pretty somber week to be talking about new books. For me, romance is a way to set aside everything that happened during the day and take a break from reality for a little while. This week's new releases did an excellent job of helping with... Continue Reading →

COVER REVEAL: Hard Fall by Sara Ney

The start of Sara Ney's newest series of standalones kicks off this month with Hard Pass, and I cannot wait to read it! Her brand of banter and humor really works for me, so I'm definitely looking forward to seeing what the vibe of this new series is like. And now we've got the cover/blurb... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ SO GOOD

Okay... WOW. This started enticingly sweet then slowly shifted into an engrossingly addictive read that had me staying up late to devour it. It’s my first from the author - and I’ll definitely be back for more. Which is kind of surprising given the number of things in the story that could’ve gone oh so... Continue Reading →

EXCERPT from Fortuity by Jewel E. Ann

This was such a beautifully written book! It's my first from the author, and I will definitely be back for more. It's funny and emotional, mixing light moments with shots of angst for maximum impact. If you're looking for a read that subtle, sexy, and will move you - that's Fortuity. I've got my full... Continue Reading →

If you haven't checked out any of the Cocky Hero Club books yet, they're all written by up-and-coming authors who were inspired by the original... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️ Romance fail

I'm going to call this one women's fiction, because if it's a romance then... it's an epic fail. I don't normally offer up spoilers, but if I had known (and this is the spoiler, guys) that our hero would sleep with another woman 75% of the way into the book, I wouldn't have wasted my... Continue Reading →

Best of May 2020

May was an OUTSTANDING month for romance! I'm pretty sure I rated more books as 5 stars in May than I did in April and March combined. So it was extremely difficult to narrow down my top picks this month - and I'm not complaining! There were so many excellent books that I highly recommend,... Continue Reading →

EXCERPT from Jock Blocked by Pippa Grant

Jock Blocked was one of my absolute favorite books of the month (complete list coming this weekend!). It was such a light, smile-inducing read with all of the quirky humor that Pippa Grant has perfected. If you haven't read it yet, now's the time! It's free with Kindle Unlimited and the perfect weekend read. I've... Continue Reading →

COVER REVEAL: In a Holidaze by Christina Lauren

A holiday romance from a beloved team of authors? Can't wait! This Christmas romance sounds like exactly what I want from a wintery read. It's a play on familiar Christmas themes, executed by two very talented authors. Take a peek at the blurb below - In a Holidaze releases October 6th! BLURB: Love Actually meets Groundhog Day in... Continue Reading →

COVER REVEAL: The Rivals by Vi Keeland

What a cover! I love this striking cover from Vi Keeland, and the premise has definitely got me interested. Sounds like this is going to be one sexy, complicated romance, and I'm curious where it all leads. Take a peek at the blurb below - The Rivals releases July 13th! Title: The Rivals Author: Vi... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ An angsty ride

That cliffhanger! I am so ready to read the conclusion to this angsty, new adult trilogy because this couple has me hooked. Piper Lawson's writing is excellent (as always), so she's got me rooting for Annie and Tyler despite the complicated nature of their relationship. It's angsty and engrossing, with tension and plenty of drama.... Continue Reading →

COVER REVEAL: Faked by Karla Sorensen

I love this cover, and the blurb sounds SO GOOD. Bad boy/good girl, possible mistaken identity? Yes, please! Get all the details about Faked below - it releases June 16th. BLURB: Every action has a consequence, and Claire Ward knows it. And yet, even knowing that her decision to swap places with her identical twin... Continue Reading →

There are lots of exciting new books coming your way soon, including a couple that are releasing towards just in time for this weekend. Take a peek at all of the books coming your... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Light and easy

What an adorably sweet romance! This one is light and playful throughout, with great chemistry and a touch of steam. It's got a nice small town feel and characters you can root for, pairing a woman who has been planning her wedding for years with a guy who can't picture himself ever having one. There's... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Too sweet for me

This was a solid read - it just wasn't a good fit for me. I always see Carolyn Brown's books on the bestseller lists, so it seemed like the right time to check one out. The writing itself is strong, the characters are interesting, and there are little bits of humor thrown into the story.... Continue Reading →

15 Protective, Loving Romance Heroes

Some of these heroes might be a little rough around the edges, but they are all GREAT guys deep down. They're loving and protective without being over the top, and they make worthy partners for their heroines. From the military heroes to the all-around good guys, each of these heroes has something about them that... Continue Reading →

WEEKLY WRAP-UP: May 22nd

This was another busy release week, with so many great new books (as well as a couple of misses). I read a few 5-star reads from trusted favorites, tried out a few new-to-me authors, and filled up my TBR with lots of exciting upcoming releases. If you read my Teaser Tuesday post (found here), you... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Problematic past

I always enjoy Nadia Lee’s light and fun rom coms, but… this definitely wasn’t my favorite. There’s just something about the backstory that rubbed me the wrong way, and I really couldn’t get past it (more on that in a minute). It’s still a cute read with some fun enemies to lovers bickering, a sweet... Continue Reading →

MARK YOUR CALENDAR: June Releases

There are SO MANY new romance novels coming your way in the month of June!!! It can be incredibly difficult to keep track of all of the new releases each month, so I've put together a calendar to help you manage your TBR. The following books are the ones that are on my radar -... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Complex and angsty

Such a compelling second chance romance! I'll be the first to admit that second chance romances are often difficult for me because there are always questions about the relationship that pull me out of the story, but this was written so well that it was engrossing, complex, and interesting throughout. The heroine is not my... Continue Reading →

Teaser Tuesday

Today is a big, BIG release day, so there will be lots of book reviews coming your way in the next few days! There are also a couple of rom coms releasing later in the week that will keep your Memorial Day weekend light and fun. Looking ahead to next week, there are an interesting... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️ Falls flat

This one sits solidly between 2 and 3 stars for me. It definitely had potential and there was nothing explicitly "wrong" with it, but there just wasn't enough to compel me to keep reading. It's got some great food descriptions that will make you hungry, characters who are interesting but share no real chemistry, and... Continue Reading →
