I fell in love with Sydney Hastings when I was ten years old. At sixteen, we whispered promises of forever. When I was twenty-two I broke them all. I left her and promised never to return. After my father’s death, I’m forced to go home to Sugarloaf for six months. She’ll be everywhere, no longer just in my memories and regrets. When we’re together, it’s as though time never stopped. She’s still the one I want, but I don’t deserve her. Instead of apologizing, I take that beautiful, broken woman in my arms. But after that, it’s her turn to leave me. Now I have to fight. For her. For us. For the life we both want …

Her head is in my hands, and my heart is at her feet. She has no idea how badly I want to be the man she still sees. -Declan
Not my first read by the author or last, I’ve been a huge fan for many years. I was WAITING FOR DECLAN gah *sigh* absolutely everything about it kept me captivated through out the whole book. What a start…and then I finished it and I am now asking myself what in the heck just happened? Wha…why? *breathing*
Well this will be really hard to keep spoiler free but I shall. If you’ve read book one you know this was going to be a second-chance and if you didn’t, now you know. It was so intense to a point I wanted to throw my kindle, then it just took a turn and BAM, I was balling my eyes out into my chips I was eating. It feels like I just got off a roller coaster ride and wasn’t sure that I ever even got on one. It was intense, heart-breakingly beautiful, angsty, sorrow and romantic in it’s own way! You kind of come out breathing little faster, but by gosh did it mend my heart! You don’t want to miss Declan and Sydney’s story…one for the books!!

Not my first read by the author, I also have read the full Book #1 in a new series, this one belongs to a group of author’s analogy. It was shorter but long enough to keep you happy.
This was a very sweet and sexy read. involves a surprise pregnancy, age gap, sports romance. The heroine is much younger to the hero who shared one amazing night, only for Harper to leave the next morning. now that they both realize what is going to happen, not only that but also the fact that they live on opposite sides of the country. I think if I had to pick one thing that kind of threw me off a little is, how it kind of turned over night (the feelings for one another) and i mean that because there wasn’t much progression towards that for me, they felt more just friends platonic to me for a very long time and then like the switch was turned on. The hero was sweet, funny, sexy. outgoing…just a good guy all around. the heroine was a little quirky, funny, sweet and vulnerable. Two different lives that may be connected to one another after all. It was light, exciting and sweet story with a little hint of mystery!

It started one night in Vegas over a naughty cocktail and dirty banter. Eight months of bedded bliss later, Gilly Nelson says the two words Ezra Baker never saw coming: “I’m pregnant.” Twice-divorced Ezra has always acted first, thought it through later. Except in Gilly he finds an equal; a strong-willed, independent woman who doesn’t need his money or kind heart to get ahead. She just wants him. Career-focused Gilly never imagined she’d be thirty-five, single and pregnant. Except when Ezra suggests they date rather than just mate, she finds herself wondering whether the man she’s been looking for has been in her bed all along. If they can survive raging hormones, house renovations, and the realities of childbirth, surely creating a family will be a walk in the park…right? *** Working For It is a full-length house flipping romantic comedy that can be read as a complete standalone and is the fifth and final book in the Cook Brothers series. Working For It is Ezra Baker’s story.

Not my first read by the author & I have read all the books in this series so I am familiar with the crew and writing style of course. I am a forever fan of BJ…she really writes sweet, sexy and funny books! This one was romantic on a whole new level!
Ezra has got to be one of my favorites in this series, I knew we’d get something else form him from the previous books but my gosh did I fall in love with him…actually with Gilli as well…not only is she strong, independent and beautiful but has the biggest heart and isn’t afraid to show her emotions. Ez is a sweetheart but in a alpha sexy way, I really REALLY LOVED HIM! This has a mixture of fun, surprise, sexy and let’s not forget this whole series has a lot of rom-com and this did not disappoint it. You get to watch two people navigate something that could have gone differently but they both chose the right path for themselves…now the question is can they overcome everything being thrown in at once?!

He’s growly. Grumpy. Stubborn. And now, my new roommate. Walking away from my disastrous last relationship was an easy decision, but moving in with a friend-of-a-friend hockey star who’s rarely home? Not quite as simple, because Grant makes me feel all kinds of things I’m not prepared for. Protected. Desired. Unsteady. She’s beautiful. Smart. Tempting. And a little fragile. I’ve never been anyone’s knight in shining armor, but when Ana needed a place to stay, it was easy to offer her a room with me. Not so simple, though, is keeping my hands—or my mouth—to myself. And the night she crawls into my bed and shares her body with me? Heaven. But she’s not looking for a relationship, and to my surprise, I find myself pissed off by that idea. They say my heart is broken, that I’ll never settle down. I used to think that was true. Now, though? Hell, your guess is as good as mine. First, she took my bed. Then she took my heart. Then she took my everything.

Not my first read by the author & I also have read every book in the series!
I love this series, and have really liked every book, maybe one where it wasn’t my style but I was so super excited to read Grant’s story. Like more excited then the rest. And so it is with heavy heart that I have to say that, I sadly did not like it. The plot was weak, the heroine was weak a ‘push-over’ type weak, granted it called for the situation(s) but it was overly. I think it was just that that bothered me, Ana the heroine. Grant was understandable, protective and grumpy but sexy. The plot line in the beginning was really fast for the situation that occurred, it “moved” on too quick for me. I understand Ana’s situation but just wasn’t executed well, for my taste. The story line only gets worse for me. There are so many missing pieces for me, i have so many questions and just confusion all around. I do not like Ana’s actions at all, not only weak but poorly and so confusion and indecisive. I can’t really say it but want to but i don’t do spoiler alerts so i wont but gosh I just want to yell at her, WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU aside from the beginning of the story reason!!! I mean this has a trigger: abuse but it was poorly constructed to me. And sadly I have to say that, even through the end I did not end up ever liking Ana, and Grant was, just seemed the push-over himself. Like I said I don’t want to spoil anything but boy, am I disappointed at this book. There is one more in the series, and we shall see.

After a chance meetup at a bar and a heated cab ride together, things come to a head and now instead of hating each other, they’re horizontal in a bed.

“I wish I could be charming. Maybe then Dr. Dick and I would’ve ended up in the sack together instead of him threatening to call for a psych evaluation.”
Not my first read by the author, I just adore and love Amy…from her IG story posts to her books, always fun. This one, little different but in the best way. I fell in love from the first pages. Always something about a enemy-to when done right that get’s em going!
Little bitter sweet about this book, I started writing this review when i was about half way through the book. The beginning really captivated me, and i loved the banter and jumping right into enemy-to. A good laugh always with Amy’s books. This one actually had me going for it to be a little more serious, i wont lie there were moments of ‘Lynsey being immature’ but it wasn’t enough to make me stop reading. I do have to get this off my chest, i kind of was OKAY with Dean the male friend but by mid way, I really did not like him…reason: he is one way with the heroine and another with the hero, I just couldn’t enjoy him. Alright aside from that, the hero is PARTICULAR (dry humor – and btw this is in a good way, sexy broody and dry humor worked for him!). A doctor, early 30s , smart, sexy and knows his way with words. A particular humor that seems to clash with Lynsey but yet bond them together. I will also say that I was kind of missing something; maybe more of Lynsey wanting to understand why he is the way he is. They banter a lot but I was looking for that connection a little more. I’ll be back with more once I’ve finished the other half of this.
2nd 50% of the book I was hoping i didn’t have to jump into these words and explanation, but i want anyone that reads my review to understand why. Linsey to me tittered on the line of being an adult and being an adult but immature. There were instances where i found her funny and it was appropriate but then scenarios where it was really immature of what she had said or done and it slightly turned me off more each time. Now granted it was maybe meant to be more light and fun but i was expecting a little something else, so that’s on me and my feelings on the heroine’s tone. Confirmation on not liking Dean one bit – CONFIRMED.. twice. don’t like him anymore, his time and actions, it’s not funny anymore and just No Dean please! *cringe* I want to address the flow and transitions because at times i was hot and cold, for example: one chapter ending in something rather serious between hero and heroine, then beginning of next chapter they are together just like normal (another scenario), i guess I’m just trying to say that i got emotional in the ending and the next start we are back to just normal, so you can see why that’s got me got and cold.
All in all if you’re still here after me writing a whole novella about this review, I want to say that I do love Amy’s books, they really are fun and light…the issues I had with it as always are my opinion and feelings towards reading this sweet story. I would still very much recommend this book and series, what I did love was the hero and heroine together throughout all this, aside form everything they really seemed to be two pees in a pot, polar opposite on the outlook of life but meshed really well together. The epilogue, okay that had me almost balling my eyes out it was sweet!

Not my first read by the author and not my last! I absolutely love this author and this series! From book one I was hooked and here we are at #5 and I don’t ever want them to end I gotta say. This one was a twist and played out so beautifully! Second-chance/ small town romances are my top favorites!
I don’t want to give out too much for this book because once you get the TWIST you will be even more hooked as to find out which way it’s going to go. The hero and heroine in here have known each other from before and when they meet again, nothing was as it seems, aside from their time together. Two souls that were too young to know better to speak up, but when fate steps in…there is not stopping her. Watch there two maneuver through life near one another again, maybe again but nothing is the same and everything seems like the old/new world.

Dear Taron, I should have told you this a long time ago…
Dear Taron, Is there a time-limit on forgiveness? If there is, I haven’t reached it…
Dear Taron, I still love you… A letter never sent. Heck, I never even finished it.
Taron Rhodes was my brother’s best friend. He was sexy as sin. But he was more than that… He was ponytail-pulling, ice down your shirt teasing, throw you in the lake screaming… Strong, tanned arms and blue-green eyes over a heart-stopping, naughty grin… Did I mention his tight end? I gave him my first real kiss, my heart, my everything. I said I’d wait for him… I’m still waiting, because Taron Rhodes is still the man of my dreams, And I have a secret that has his blue-green eyes. Noel LaGrange stole my heart when she was only eighteen—pushing me off a flatbed and calling me a city slicker. Her brother Sawyer would kick my ass if he knew how many times we made out that summer, how close we got. Everything changed when Sawyer and I joined the military. We were honorably discharged, but I didn’t go to her. Instead, I went back to the city… where no amount of money, no amount of pills can heal this wound. Only her whiskey eyes and dark hair, her slim arms and her sweet scent, give me hope. I broke her heart just as surely as I broke mine, but I’m going back to make it right. If she’s still waiting…
(WAIT FOR ME is a STAND-ALONE small-town, second-chance romance with a guaranteed HEA. No cheating. No cliffhangers.)

Heaven is finding the thing you can’t live without and being able to hold it. Hell is knowing you’ll have to let it go.
Not my first read by the author and since I have discovered Tia I have read every single book she has put out since. This BLURB alone will get you, just wait until the story, ALL THE EMOTIONS! It’s a beautiful story of YOUNG LOVE and over-comings.
Taron & Noel meet at the worst and yet best time ever! After spending a short amount of time together, they fall head over heels in love. When Taron leaves along with Noel’s brother, it’s a hard one…the first leaves are always the hardest. The in between is beautiful and emotional, it’s so much love…reminded me kind of like a 50’s when man meets woman and leaves for the war and she waits for him…it’s just young love is all I will say. But as hot as it burns, it crashes even harder. You really will FEEL this one!
Then you get your heart ripped out and placed back! It’s a ride I wasn’t prepared for, this second chance romance is on another level. It’s a little of known and a lot of new. Having read a lot of books by this author, I am familiar with her style so that’s where the KNOWN comes in and the new, is just a few things that really took me by surprise! Emotional, beautiful and romantic. You get a little of everything & all in Tia’s amazing writing style.

“How can you be all romantic one minute, and then make me want to strangle you the next?”He shrugs.“Must be my charm.”
Not my first read by author but it is my first in this series, therefore it was really different for me, thankfully in a good way.

“Can you pull it out?” “That’s not the first time I’ve been asked that.”His tone is so low and rumbly, I’m not sure this was meant for my ears.
“A man either becomes a poet or an idiot when he basks in the light of a beautiful woman.”
Not my first review by author and she was a NEW to me author not too long ago but one of her books GOT ME HOOKED! This one is a 50/50 for me. It had the potential I just couldn’t connect with the heroine. Yes she was younger but it was a bit more immature that I wanted. Honestly, I am not sure…just the dynamic between them in the beginning, it felt always an inch off to me. If that makes sense, I really loved her other books so I was surprised I felt this but again, I am always honest and that’s how it felt to me. But I will say this: It’s one S-E-X-Y book, you’ll see when you read what I mean! Hands down this author is really good with the sexiness of the story!
Miranda and Harry met while she was stuck in his window ledge, literally stuck. Dang skirt! Miranda has been going through a rough break up and well, one thing leads to another and she meets this mystery man who is so sexy and handsome…one night of rebound passion couldn’t hurt. After-all she did just come off an engagement where she got screwed royally and not in the good way. One night…mmmmhm! A night that eventually leads to a POSITIVE PREGNANCY TEST!
The characters were different in it’s own. Miranda is 23 and still young, at times very immature and just not sure which direction her life is going. Harry is sophisticated, well off, smart, handsome…basically a MAN she would dream of having one day. He is definitely a DIRTY gentleman *sizzling* but where they go from the whole her being pregnant, is an interesting turn of events. It’s like a missed-opportunity that keeps rolling around them. Everything seems to be AGAINST them, which makes them question their own sanity and choices But maybe she can turn that NOT into IS?! p.s. I really enjoyed the ending portion, around 75% and up, something clicked for me and it picked up and I was glued to it. Rather then dwelling how I couldn’t connect…I guess it just took me a little longer to in this one!
I would like to say that, bring the tissues for the conclusion..I…I was left speechless.
