R E V I E W ➠ Just One Kiss by Layla Hagen



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

Everyone associates the name Ryker Winchester with money, power plays, negotiations…it’s what I’m good at. In the boardroom, I get exactly what I want. In the bedroom, there’s no difference.
I was wholly unprepared for Heather.
She’s a feisty single mom, challenging me in ways no woman ever has. I can’t get enough of her. The way she gives in to me is intoxicating, but I need more than hot nights and sexy dates.
When she introduces me to her daughter, I fall for that little girl hook, line and sinker. No one has ever played me for a fool like that kid can do with a single dimpled grin. I want to keep them both.
Heather’s been hurt before. She’s hanging by a thread and doesn’t trust easily, but I want more than just some fun. How can I show her that we can build something incredible together?

RELEASE DATE: April 14, 2020

Not my first read by the author, love Layla’s books, but I have not read book #1 in this series, which I hope to get to soon…yes even backwards. I am so glad I read this because reading book 1 will be a MUST if it’s as good as this!

Ryker is a successful businessman, has it all, but his favorite is playing the guitar nightly at a local bar. Que in single-mom Heather who is feisty, sassy and so sweet. They don’t have much interaction that first meet but Ryker comes to the rescue…in many ways. When they see each other again, not only are they drawn to one another but the sparks fly, really fly. I absolutely LOVE them together…and I can’t say this enough but Ryker is a whole new level of SWOONY, the way he is with Heather’s daughter *sigh* everything about this book was charming, exciting, romantic and beautiful!

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



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

Buried secrets never stay hidden in the South.
Kallie
I fell in love with him when I was seven. I scraped my knee, and he helped carry me inside.
Our love story was the talk of the town until a woman told everyone she was pregnant with his baby. The only rational solution was to high tail it out of town and never come back.
My best friend needed a place to hide, and you can’t get much more covert than my family farm, so I came back. For her. It was supposed to be temporary, and I wasn’t supposed to see him, but that’s what happens when you live in a small town where everyone knows each other.
Jacob
Being the sheriff in a small town was never my dream. My father died and my older brother took off, so I had to be the one to look after my mother. I stayed. I fulfilled my duties as a son and I protected my hometown.
My life wasn’t perfect, but I was content. Until I locked eyes with a ghost from my past, Kallie. I thought it was my imagination, it couldn’t be. I loved her most of my life, but now I hated her.
The town gossip mill was going into overdrive. I kept my head down and my mind off of the woman who shattered my heart when she ran away. She didn’t give me a chance to explain, it didn’t matter to her then. I didn’t matter.
A second chance is never promised, but now that mine is right under my nose, I’m not sure I can take it.

SOUTHERN COMFORT
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.

R E V I E W ➠ Own The Eights by Krista Sandor



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

Bookshop owner, Georgie Jensen, is done with shallow jerks. Her Own the Eights blog dishes out advice on how to steer clear of egotistical creeps only concerned with looks and status. Her focus is finding one’s true soulmate—not the superficial ten but the solid, reliable eight.
Jordan Marks is the city’s top fitness trainer who won’t settle for anything less than the best. His blog promotes working hard, playing harder, and striving to always be—you guessed it—a ten.
When these two opposites are forced to team-up for an online competition, opinions clash and mouse pads fly.
The twist: there can only be one winner, and if Georgie wants to keep her shop open, that winner needs to be her.
But the more time this eight and this ten spend together, the more they learn that, when it comes to love, a number might not be what matters the most.

Own the Eights is a steamy rom-com full of heart, heat, and oodles of laugh out loud moments!

RELEASE DATE: March 19, 2020

Not my first read by the author and she is one of my new/favorites! I have read every single book by Krista from the beginning and it only gets better and better. She can write HEART and now she can also write rom-com’s in the sweetest ways! This author is and will always be a one-click for me!

Rom-Com with SO MUCH HEART! You throw in enemy-to and a sassy but beautiful heroine, not to mention the sexiest hero ever…you got yourself a GAME ON who’s going to win! Jordan was so much fun, I fell in love with him right away, he thinks of himself as a ten and vows to help people reach their max potential to also become ten’s. Throw in Georgie who has had a little bit of a bad luck streak with dating and men, who states firmly an 8 is perfect as well. How she ended up with Jordan a “ten” having to not only work together but compete…she will show him that a eight outshines a ten!

They say the mistakes of our past shape our future. That we’re molded from experience, from heartache, and from pain.
What happens when your past is riddled with regrets?
How do you see through the fog, to navigate the path to your future?
One breath.
One second.
One minute.
One hour.
One day at a time, you learn to live with your unexpected odds.

RELEASE DATE: March 19, 2020

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.

R E V I E W ➠ The Trade by Meghan Quinn



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

Can you pinpoint a time in your life where you realized you are completely and utterly screwed?
I can. I got the dreaded phone call, the one every baseball player hopes and prays never comes.
I was traded. Yeah, that phone call.
Traded from my long time team of over ten years. And not just to any team, but my childhood rivals; the Chicago Rebels.
Completely and utterly screwed, right? Wrong. The trade was the least of my concerns.
I met a girl. Natalie. Man, she’s perfect.
I swore I would never get involved with anyone during the season. Too complicated. But can you believe I have zero restraint when it comes to this girl? I couldn’t get her out of my head and the more I talked to her, the more I realized I needed her in my life.
So what’s the problem? Why am I screwed? Because, Natalie, the girl I can’t stop crushing on, yeah . . . she’s married.
At least, that’s what I was told . . .

RELEASE DATE: March 12, 2020

Not my first time read by the author, and I have read book #1 and now this one in the series. I was a little nervous about the whole heroine being married part but glad I gave this a full shot. I honestly can’t say I disliked anything about this book!!

This is a story of two people and wrong timing. Then fast-forward to a second chance meeting and not only do sparks fly but the chemistry between them, the way they are around one another, you just can’t help but pull to them. They both battled their own daemons and had their own struggles, but when they were together, EXPLOSIVE! Now the only question is, if they can heal one another or just take it as it was and move on?!

Beautiful BEAUTIFUL story, definitely one of my favorite reads in this series! Cory was the swooniest hero and so so sweet, tough, alpha and smart! Natalie, bless her heart, I felt for her with every word. They really made the perfect pair!

R E V I E W ➠ Maybe Swearing Will Help by Lani Lynn Vale



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

Ford Spurlock has known Ashe Trammel since they were babies.
He’s also done his level best to stay away from her because every time he gets to within five feet of her, they’re fighting like cats and dogs.
Ashe is the apple of her father’s eye. The motorcycle club princess that was never to be harmed in any way—or touched for that matter. And he’s always resented the fact that she could get away with things that he couldn’t. Things that she then blames on him and he always gets punished for.
Fast forward to adulthood, and Ashe is still off limits. Still driving him insane. Still…beautiful.
She never misses an opportunity to give him hell, either.
That has to be why he agrees to do a photoshoot for KPD SWAT that’ll benefit her charity even when he’d rather shoot himself in the foot with his duty weapon.
Ashe never thought he’d agree.

Honestly, she thought she’d ask him, he’d say no, and that’d be the end of it.
She never realized that she’d leave his photo up in her cubicle, and it’d be the last thing that she saw every night as she locked her office door.
When they were kids, Ford used to be that boy that threw dirt at her and pulled her hair.
Now, he’s the same Ford Spurlock, only a whole lot sexier. And a lot harder to say no to.
When he challenges her to one date, she has no other recourse but to agree.
What she didn’t agree to was falling in love with Mr. March. Or wanting to give him everything she had to give. 

RELEASE DATE: March 10, 2020

Not my first read by the author and I have read the first book in this series. This one, from the blurb I KNEW I would love because Ford and Ashe were an anticipated couple by me, ever since book one. This did NOT disappointing!

These two were unforgettable. They have know each other since they were little, always used to hate on one another, yell, push, shove…the typical kids stuff. When they got to the teenage years, things started to change for Ashe and every girl Ford went through, she felt that. Until that one girl, that kind of changed everything for Ford too. Going on as they did, always bickering, fighting, daring each other, getting into trouble until a bet. A bet that turns it all around.

Watch these two skirt around each other only to realize that the love part of their love/hate relationship out-wins. I really loved this from the beginning, it’s one of those reads that sticks with you for a long time. I am looking forward to more in this series for sure.

If only he could tell his heart to stay locked away when she whispers she’s always loved him, and always will…

RELEASE DATE: February 25, 2020

NEW TO ME AUTHOR & BOOKS, I have been wanting to read a book by this author but have not had the chance yet. I received the sweetest and most amazing package that not only contained a signed paperback of this beautiful cover but also personalized gifts. After reading the blurb and getting a little info from my #bookbestie Amy, I can’t wait to dive in.

First of I’d like to say that I though I might be okay without tissues, but fair warning, have tissues handy! This book broke me, then put me together and then romanced me!! I felt so part of the story, when I stopped reading I had to blink once or twice to bring myself back. I was blown away by her writing, the hero and heroine are unconventional, therefore a slow-burn but what a burn…the reasons of why, who and when took me back, I was right there with every memory from the characters. Truly amazed.

Now I know this writers words and will definitely be reading more, even if this one slowly dissected me before it put me back as a whole. MUST READ!

R E V I E W ➠ Doughn’t Let Me Go by Teagan Hunter



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

It was just supposed to be one night.
No kissing. No feelings. A wham-bam-thank-you-ma’am tangle in the sheets and we go our own ways.
Only it’s a small town, and I was bound to run into the irresistible Porter Jones again.
I just didn’t expect it to be at my job interview…which he’s conducting.
Now the live-in nanny to his adorable seven-year-old daughter, I’m doing my best to avoid falling for his charms.
Except it’s much harder than either of us anticipated.
What’s a few romps between friends?
No kissing. No feelings. Just fun.
Sounds simple, right?
Right…

RELEASE DATE: February 6, 2020

“Tell me about it. All I wanted last night was some pizza.”
“And all you got was
a pizza this ass?”
Her face scrunches up. “I can’t believe you just said that. I can’t believe I slept with a person who would even think that.”
“You liked sleeping with me and you doughn’t regret it even though I just said something cheesy.

It’s been over twenty-hour hours since I last saw him but only a minute since I last thought about him.

-Dory

Not my first read by this author, she is one of my absolute favorites! I also have read Book 1 & 2 in this series, LOVED both of them!! Been excited about this one!! You know when you read Teagan that you will get to be like part of the story, she transforms you in it…and laughter…lot’s of laughter…oh and cursing hahaha! In this case you also get an amazing little girl who will win your heart over in just a page. Well, to be fair she won my heart over in Book #2!

Porter, the hero is funny, handsome, arrogant, broody, so sexy and a great man. You get a little glimpse of him in the previous book and that is why I was so excited for his story. He is a man that never had anyone stick…therefore when he uprooted his whole life to be closer to his friends he isn’t expecting to find a woman who gave him a night of his life and also an employee…..again!

Doris aka Dory (yes like the fish) is a young woman fighting in the big world. She has been having some bad luck until one night at her favorite pizza place she runs into a stranger, well not run more like she stared really hard at him until he called her out on it. One night. No feelings. No kissing under any circumstance. Just sex. And well a job, but not because of the sex I promise *smirk*

This is a story of two people who both don’t trust themselves but have a pull to one another that they consciously don’t ignore but still in the back of the mind, they know that this can only lead to heartbreak. I don’t want to give out to much, honestly it was such a fun read. I loved all of them and especially them three together. The daughter is probably one of my favorites in this series along with Porter, something about his grumpy-handsome-ness…and all! Just in love with all this, if you want lighthearted read with a lot of laughter, banter and romance (and also the sexy time, good gosh there is no disappointment here on that *sizzling*)

R E V I E W ➠ Then You Happened by K. Bromberg



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

Jack Sutton was the man I didn’t want to need.
His know-it-all attitude. His annoying suggestions. His outlook on life.
He was determined to help me while I had resolved to figure it out on my own.
But he taught me things I’d forgotten.
How to trust. How to believe in myself. Who I was.
The problem?
I went and fell in love with him.

Tatum Knox was the disaster I should have walked away from.
Her ruined reputation. Her failing business. Her chaotic life.
She hated me at first sight and yet intrigued me all at the same time.
I was only supposed to be there six months.
I was supposed to use that time to make amends for things I’d done wrong.
Instead I fell in love with her.

They say it’s better to have loved and lost, than not to have loved at all. Does that hold true when the love is based on a lie to begin with?

RELEASE DATE: February 3, 2020

Not my first read by author & I have read every single book she has put out. She is also on my top 5 favorite author’s as well as first reads many moons ago when I started reading romance. This book already started to kill me when the dedication was to: the broken ones!

Right off the bet you get ENEMY-TO, we have our heroine who is a woman that gave it all up to follow, and a hero who made a promise he intends to keep. These two meet by coincidence and soon learn that they may have a lot more in common then they thought. Their banter is straight on, there is a lot of anger from the heroine and a lot of heart and soul from the hero. Opposites clash in a story that will have you fighting along with them then it will hit you with a shock that you won’t ever see coming. And I mean it’s a TWIST of all twists. Aside from the beginning where it took me a little to warm up to the heroine (she a was little overly-arrogant and little prickly) The hero, ladies THE HERO hold on to your hearts because he will have it from page 1!! All in all, this story is a hard one, definitely for the lost as the dedication stated, and in the end I WAS IN LOVE with this!!

A MUST READ!!
