Avery Sunshine might not have a soul mate of her own, but she still believes in happily ever after—for her clients. Making dreams come true is her business at Sunshine Bridal, which she runs with her two sisters. When her best friend announces her engagement, Avery is thrilled to take charge of the giddy bride-to-be’s big day. Less thrilling? Her best friend’s arrogant and demanding brother, who just so happens to be the man of honor.
Carter Ross’s first instinct: call 911. He promised to always take care of his impulsive little sister, and he honors that vow. Even if it means taking over her wedding, where he is sure Avery will fail. At best, Avery is unpredictable. At worst, if she’s anything like the spitfire of a college girl he remembers, the main event could run wild.
With Avery and Carter wrestling for control, tempers heat up. So does the spark of attraction they’re fighting with every kiss. As the wedding draws near, it’s time to reconcile a rocky past and make a decision that could change everyone’s lives. Because what they’re rebelling against looks a lot like love.

RELEASE DATE: May 1, 2020

Not my first read by this author, she happens to be one of my very first reads and a favorite author!!

Avery: She has a nick for giving people what they want before they even know it. That’s why she is perfect at her job, wedding planning. Even if that one time, a ex almost ruined a wedding. She’s very head strong, beautiful, super smart, sassy and can hold her ground. Her capacity of love is un-measurable, just plain loved the heroine through out the entire book!
Carter: Is a strong, sexy , successful and very competitive man who can’t understand how his little sister is getting married. He is not ready to let her go fully, but when she asks him to be her man of honor, he can’t say no to her. Carter buds his head into EVERYTHING Avery has planned, meaning he is no on-the-side-line Man OH nooo, he gets a joy from riling up Avery. After all she is the first woman to make him feel anything after all the years.

This is where two clash, one wedding planner and one man that is very OCD and has to be and have control. They both re so alike, determined, hard working, smart, hard-headed, stubborn and lonely even though neither would admit that. Their banter and little games at times got really frustrating but in a fun way, loved seeing them go head to head…*sigh* it’s a sweet can-and-mouse game because when they both swore they’d never get feeling involved to protect them selves…one falls first and when the other WON’T CHASE…well that’s where this heartfelt story turns! A MUST READ!!

R E V I E W ➠ Get Bucked by Lani Lynn Vale



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

Darby has always been ‘that’ guy.
The guy that no man, woman, or child wants around their loved one.
See, a long time ago he made some bad decisions. Those bad decisions have haunted him ever since. No matter what he does, people still see him as the town’s screw up. The boy that sold his soul to the Devil.
Years later, he’s turned himself around. Made amends and ultimately turned into a generally good guy. Only, it’s hard to act like a good guy when people still treat you like the old you, and not the new you.
Enter Waylynn Jennings.
Waylynn has watched Darby Valentine from afar for a very long time.
She’s witnessed the changes in him and knows the only reason he’s so mean is to protect the man that lies within. A battered, injured soul that deserves more than what he’s received. Even his own family takes him for granted.
She’s made it her new mission in life to prove to everyone that Darby isn’t the bad guy. That he’s a kind-hearted, sweet soul that’s just looking for a place to fit in.
Only, Darby is fairly sure that Waylynn is out to kill him, not help him. How else do you explain all the fights he’s having to break up on her behalf, or all the times he has to come to her rescue when she’s managed to put her cute little butt right in the middle of something where it shouldn’t be?
There’s obviously only one solution. He has to make her his. Then everyone will know not to mess with her. Darby Valentine protects what’s his. No matter what the cost.

She curled her hands around my neck and pulled me into her space.

Not my first read by the author and I have read all the books in this series! THE FINAL Valentine Man to go down #bittersweet

Darby is a special hero because he comes from a past that made him the biggest asshole there is. Even though he has re-built himself and his reputation through out the years, he is still known as that asshole. But he is the most loyal and hard working man not to mention sexy as heck, but his heart us what i fell in love with about him. Waylynn she was freaking funny, feisty, sassy as heck, beautiful and hiding a big heart herself. Them together was a hoot to read, their banter and sizzling chemistry…fire together! So sad to see the series end but glad I had the chance to see all the Valentine brother’s find happiness.

R E V I E W ➠ Here With Me by Tia Louise



GOODREADS AMAZONAUTHOR WEBSITE

Sawyer LaGrange.
He’s my best friend’s older brother.
He’s quiet, brooding, sinfully sexy 
Dark hair, a scruffy square jaw, and deep lines of muscle I trace my fingers along slowly, followed by my lips…
He always does what’s right.
Until me…
They say you get in life what you have the courage to ask for.
Well, I’m brave.
And I want him.
Secrets.
Everybody has them.
Big, small, innocent… forbidden.
Mindy was a line I should never have crossed.
But I did.
She was beautiful… sassy and tempting,
And rules were made to be broken.
We broke them all.
Now I’m home, released from service with hidden scars.
Now my secrets are the demons that grow stronger every day.
I try to send her away, but I can’t let her go.
She’s my reason to fight, and I’ll walk through hell to be the man she deserves.
To give her a reason to stay here with me.

(HERE WITH ME is a STAND-ALONE best friend’s older brother, second-chance, military romance. No cheating. No cliffhangers.)

RELEASE DATE: April 20, 2020

Not my first read by the author and I have read almost every single one of her books! Every time she comes out with a book I get excited to read!! First off this hero is the brother of the heroine Noel from Wait For Me and the heroine is Noel’s best friend Mindy. So get ready for second chance romance with a twist!

Our hero here is not your normal broken this and that, he is much deeper…and to be honest when reading his thoughts and words…makes you understand him so much yet want to reach in and help. The heroine is the sweetest, she has always been in love with the hero, but never the right time. She is smart, so talented, beautiful, fun and the biggest heart…but them together is kind of like a magnet, you know they belong together but sometimes slip off. If I had to pick a tiny slaw it would be the heroine playing small little games at times, I understood but to me it was that tiny little thing if I had to find it. Aside from all that, this sis a beautifully broken story that will tear you apart and put you back together by SAWYER himself…so sweet and heartbreaking to watch him fight and fight for her!

R E V I E W ➠ Ember by Emma Renshaw



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

One night changed an entire town.
Ten years ago, I left Hawk Valley.
I never planned to return. Not to the regrets. The bitter memories. The guilt.
My baseball career gave me both the excuse and the money I needed to start over. Then my mom called, and I found myself headed back to the one place I swore I wouldn’t step foot again.
Meeting Delilah wasn’t part of the plan. Falling in love with her adorable son was even less so. And yet, what’s brewing between us is too intense to be denied. The unexpected passion is almost enough to distract us from the crumbling of both our worlds.
But even as the sparks fly, someone is waiting in the shadows to burn it all down. 

RELEASE DATE: April 21, 2020

From cradle to grave.
From sandbox to the pine box.
From home plate to center field.

I inched closer to her even though I was denying what I wanted to do, which was sweep her into my arms and kiss the living daylight out of her.

-Gunner

Not my first read by the author, she was a new to me a little ago but I read one book and then I had to read all of her books. This one, not so different. Have you ever started a book and it’s so damn good that you had to stop yourself from reading because you didn’t want it to end? Well, this is that type for me!

The book stars off with you needing tissues, because not only do things happen fast but also in doubles. But you will instantly fall in love with Gunner, right off the bat! Both hero and heroine are put in difficult situations, very different form one another meaning they carry the same amount of guilt and worry on their shoulders but worlds apart. Typing this reminds me of how I could have used another 5 or 6 books of continued stories from just this one book.

Gunner is the perfect hero, caring, strong, sweet, sexy and a baseball player…that’s all I need to say. He lost something a very long time ago but it hung on him for years, now that he is back in town for his mother…he can’t seem to get away from the memories.
Delilah is a woman that let’s just say had to grow up pretty fast. Going through life cooking one meal after another, by the way she is a fantastic chef…and her son is the main thing in her life at all times. I absolutely, if you don’t fall in love with Gunner by himself at the beginning you will once you meet him and Tucker *swoon swoon swoon* after all this book gave me all the feels, emotional, beautiful, haunting, captivating and all the romance and sexiness you need! I can’t wait to read more…p.s. secretly looking and hoping Colt Delilah’s brother gets a story!

R E V I E W ➠ She Loves Me by Melissa Foster



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

What are two besties willing to risk for something more? The New York Times bestselling author of This Is Love has the answer in this fun, sexy, and emotional romance about friendship, family, and giving love a chance.
Something is off in Piper Dalton’s life, and she has a feeling it might just be her. All her siblings are blissfully settled with their forever loves. But while her sisters were dreaming of white weddings, Piper was left heartbroken and commitment phobic by her first love, her best friend’s younger brother. As a woman dominating the male-driven construction industry, Piper has no interest in turning in her hammer for an apron—even if hot and hilarious Harley thinks otherwise.
Burly bar owner Harley Dutch has a bum ankle and two preteen nieces to take care of, and having his best friend, tough-as-nails and sexy-as-sin Piper Dalton, come to his rescue is just the remedy he needs. Piper is her snarky self, and she kind of sucks at caregiving, but she’s owned his heart for years, she’s got a way with the girls, and Harley would sure like to have his way with her
As things heat up between Piper and Harley, she warns him not to fall in love with her because she’ll only break his heart. Harley is the right man for that challenge—until he makes the biggest mistake of his life, and they begin to wonder if true love really can conquer all.

RELEASE DATE: April 21, 2020

Not my first read by the author, she is a top favorite one as a matter of fact. I also have read the other books in the series. I was little skeptical about this one, because it’s Piper the strong, tom-boy, self sufficient, funny and again STRONG heroine. Those tend to turn me off, sadly it did but only for a few pages, I knew the way MF writes heroines that they are the good kind of strong. So, I absolutely devoured the book after a few pages!.

I really loved them together. Their banter, easy going friendship and sizzling feeling they were both trying to deny for one another. Stolen moments is what this book is all about for me, it feels a little forbidden and new and exciting, I loved watching them dodge each other all while really wanting to explore. My heart melted with this one, when there is so much happening Piper *sigh* her big heart will make you fall in love with her from the bat and Harley, as much as a jokester he is, when he lets go…absolutely BEST BOOKBOYFRIEND. Everything about this book, and I know I’ve said this before about one of her books but this is how amazing she is…about every single book I’ve read by MF I have loved! This one is just special, beautiful, sweet, SWOONY, romantic, fun and sexy! Everything you’d want in a friends to romance book!

R E V I E W ➠ Power Switch by Kennedy L. Mitchell



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

Lies. Deceit. Espionage. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg here in DC.
My boyfriend is fake engaged, I’m pretty sure someone out there is trying to kill me, and now a sexy-as-sin attorney from the Justice Department is investigating me and I have zero clue as to why. Torn between duty and love, I’m not just floundering in my role as VP, I’m drowning.
When the pieces of the president’s plan come to light, I know I have to stop him. Permanently this time. How I’ll get out of this alive, I have no idea, but at least I still have my favorite secret service agent, Trey Benson, by my side—for now.
I’ll do whatever it takes to remove Kyle from office, even if it means sacrificing everything I love. Again.

Power Switch is the third book in the five-book Power Play series and is a continuation of Randi and Trey’s epic love story. The books in this series cannot be read as standalones. All five books follow one main couple’s relationship as it grows through a five-year time period. It’s suspenseful, steamy, and oh so unputdownable. If you’re a fan of Tiffany Snow, Meghan March, and Skye Warren, then this series is for YOU! 

RELEASE DATE: April 20, 2020

Not my first read by the author, she is one of my favorites and I also have read Book 1 & 2 out of the 5 series books!

You will get a strong doze of Jessica in this one and I pray that she “accidentally” gets killed off! Anyways, thus far (and since this is book 3 and I hope no one is reading in the middle of a full length 5 book series) we all know that the heroine Randi is the VP of the USA with a President who is a big DICK! Trey the hero is cornered by his parents specifically his mother to do something that he wouldn’t normally agree to but to keep Randi safe he had no choice. His relationship with Jessica who in the beginning really seemed like a ‘woman power’ type of person until Trey’s mother got her claws in her, is a rather preternatural relationship! I didn’t like the “triangle” aspect of it in the beginning, it turned me off only because that is my taste or NOT my taste to be exact. I put a lot of emotion and feeling into reading, and it’s not so much as put but that’s how I read, will a full heart and concentration to the story and characters. Blessing & a Curse!

That also said, it really in this one you can see how hard it really is to keep a relationship when you’re the VP and the other is sworn and paid to protect you. The hurdles they go through are real and dangerous, sweet, romantic, fast, mysterious…it has it all. It’s deep political romance but with lot’s of twists and turns. Randi is complex character that Trey keeps at bay, they really are perfectly perfect together. Aside from the beginning where I wanted Jessica killed off, I really enjoyed the remainder. Now let’s talk about the ending: everything from 65% and on was intense, from the lies, secrets, danger constant danger, Randi holds her ground. Like I said these two are perfect for one another and the ending had me SHOOCKED!!!!!! Just shoocked!

R E V I E W ➠ Wild For You by Kendall Ryan



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

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.

RELEASE DATE: April 20, 2020

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.

R E V I E W ➠ Ask Me If I Care by Lani Lynn Vale



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

Ares saw him for the first time at a Kilgore Police Department benefit dinner. She’d gone with her dad as his plus one. Hayes Greer had gone by himself and brooded silently across the same table as her, drinking whiskey and not saying a word.
It only took that one time for her to become interested.
The next time she saw him, he was doing another benefit—but this one requiring a whole lot fewer clothes. And that was when she knew. She wanted him. Badly. But the morose Hayes was too busy thinking about his sins to see what was right in front of his face—Ares.
Hayes Greer knew the moment that he saw the feisty Ares Downy again that he should’ve stayed away. Maybe if he hadn’t done the stupid calendar, he wouldn’t be questioning every single woman’s intentions.
Maybe if he’d listened to that niggling feeling telling him to stay away, he would’ve been able to do his job a little better. But seeing her with a knife to her throat, in the middle of a building set to blow, made his usually well-wired brain start to malfunction.
Because nobody was allowed to touch her like that—only him. Nobody was allowed to scare her, either. Not and live to tell the tale. 

RELEASE DATE: April 14, 2020

Not my first read by the author, she is one of my favorites! She has a variety and plenty of books to entertain your soul, and this series is one of them. I have also read the previous books in this series!

Hayes is a different type of hero, broody yes, fighting daemons yes but something about him…dark. He doesn’t speak much and when he does it will never involve his past or problems. He is a great cop and when the little Ares is mixed up in dangerous situation, his outlook on her changes. There is a lot of laughter, banter, sweet and some sour. Area was my favorite in all this, I loved her because of her big heart and always wanting to help and be supportive. They make an opposite attract couple and when the sparks finally fly, boy do they fly in a alpha sexy and sweet heroine way! I can’t explain it without spoiling it but, this is a definite MUST READ!!

R E V I E W ➠ Southern Comfort by Natasha Madison



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

Buried secrets never stay hidden in the South.

Olivia
When you find out that your fiancé is arrested for swindling over ten million dollars from his clients, you do what any sane woman would do. You escape reality and go undercover, trading in your city-girl Louboutins for country-pumpkin cowboy boots.
It wasn’t a forever change—it was temporary. I only had to stay here until things back home got straightened out, or so I thought.
Casey
I was riding horses before I was walking, or at least that was what they told me. I always knew I would take over the family farm. It’s in my blood.
Country boy at heart, the minute I saw her dragging her luggage up the gravel driveway I knew she was out of my league.
I shouldn’t have started anything with her, because I knew she was just passing through.
I couldn’t stop it, I fell in love with her. Even though I knew, in the end, she would leave me.

RELEASE DATE: April 14, 2020

“That mouth of yours is going to get you in a whole heap of trouble.”

-Casey

Not my first read by the author, she is one of my favorites! Also this NEW series is ‘Save a horse, ride a Cowboy’ amazing!! Prepare for your emotions to be on HIGH in this one! If you’ve read Book #1 you know that this one is about book 1’s brother (Casey) and her best friend (Olivia). It’s complicated to start with.

Olivia comes from a background where she was always told what, how and when to do ANYTHING. She never really had a remodel, especially her mother. When she met Book 1’s heroine, they became more than best friends. When she goes back to her best friends home town, she is met with the most handsome cowboy she has ever met. Casey, the brother she apparently was being held out on by her bestie. Olivia is a happy girl, she smiles often but that smile hides a lot. When running away from a problem it always seems to follow you, in this case not only her but she has put her best friends family in jeopardy. Thinking it’s all clear she plans well she has always planned to go back to the city, after-all she doesn’t know country living much. But that past may seem a lot harder to subdue then she thought.

Casey, I can’t tell you enough how much I LOVE HIM, seriously crush love him. He is broody, big, handsome, sexy, that accent and boots & stetson *swoon* all his life he has wanted one thing, and at one point in it he almost had it. Now that his sister is back in town and in tow with the sweet, beautiful, sassy and smart Olivia…his emotions are all over. When he offers her to stay with him, he wasn’t expecting anything but that. But Casey is a protector at nature, and even though he has his own daemons he is fighting, he knows that protecting her is a must. I gotta say that Casey is not your typical broken hero, it goes more and deeper than that. *sigh*

Both of these characters are complex in their own way but when together you can;t help but laugh along, smile or even tear up. Something about two broken souls coming together. I do really wish they talked to one another, their not sharing their feelings is on another level. But everything about this book and series so far is TOP for me, this book continues smoothly from the first one and is a lot more emotional in all the ways you want it to be. I laughed, smiled and cried in this one, and I can’t wait for more, which by the way is going to me amazing from the ending of this book. p.s. this is a sweet slow-burn & you get 2 epilogues *swoon*

Not my first read by the author and she is one of my top favorites! I also have read Book #1 which is a given since this is a duo BUT you never know hehe. That said, this was the conclusion OF MY LIFE, AN EPIC ONE!

I don’t want to give out too much since this is a dou and I don’t do spoilers. This anti-hero only continues with more action, suspense, romance, thriller and let’s not forget the swoning part…so so much!! The hero is more fiercely protective in this one, heroine is more brave more beautiful just more! Like I said in the first book, Meghan does not write bad characters, they are equally amazing in their own.

“Shut up and kiss me, woman. You win. I’ll quit fucking worrying.”
