Book review: Broken Halo ~ Brynne Asher

Book review: Broken Halo ~ Brynne Asher

There are two sides to every story; especially to a story of two young people who love each other, but who are forced apart. Broken Halo tells the story of Ellie and Trig; a couple that clearly belongs together, but who have deal with the ugly truths of their past. I love this second-chance story. “History. It can tear you […]

Book review: Guarding the Billionaire ~ Jane Harvey-Berrick

Book review: Guarding the Billionaire ~ Jane Harvey-Berrick

There are a lot of romance books about billionaires with a kinky side, who surround themselves with an army of employees. These stories follow the rich guy falling in love, but how about the people that work for them? What do they think of their boss’s antics? Guarding the Billionaire tells the story of Justin Trainer, who works as a […]

Book review: An Instant Connection ~ Melanie Moreland

Book review: An Instant Connection ~ Melanie Moreland

Sometimes I just need to read a short, swoon-worthy story. And that’s what An Instant Connection is to me. Mandy and Mitch are a sweet and hot couple, who go through a whirlwind courtship. I love their story. ““Ever heard of personal space?” “Yes. But you smell good. Really good.”” Being a teacher is Mandy’s dream job, but until she […]

Book review + excerpt: The Initiation ~ Nikki Sloane

Book review + excerpt: The Initiation ~ Nikki Sloane

Wealth, power, intrigues and keeping up appearance. For us normal people it’s a ‘far-from-our-bed’ show, but for Marist and Royce it’s a part of their lives. The Initiation tells the first part of their story, I’m very curious how everything will enfold. “There was no escape. An insidious voice whispered inside me, telling me I didn’t want to escape, anyway.” […]

Book review + excerpt: Choose Me ~ R.C. Boldt

Book review + excerpt: Choose Me ~ R.C. Boldt

Falling in love with your best friend you know since childhood… Would you give into your feelings or would you be afraid to ruin a beautiful friendship? Choose Me tells the story of Magnolia and Hollis, who grew up together. It’s angst-y, romantic and real, I simply adore it. “Just like Grandpa Joe said in last week’s sermon, a sweet […]

Book review + excerpt: Marriage for One ~ Ella Maise

Book review + excerpt: Marriage for One ~ Ella Maise

For me, marriage is about being married to the person you love most and who loves you, the person you build a life and a future with. Getting married for anything less, why would you do that? Marriage for One tells the story of Rose and Jack, who’s marriage isn’t based on love (that changes of course). I have enjoyed […]

Book review: Time ~ Penny Reid

Book review: Time ~ Penny Reid

Like the ending of Motion, Space has left Mona (and us readers) with some questions. Mona knows about Abram’s feelings for her and how she feels about him, but the rest is still uncharted territory. With Time we get the conclusion to Mona and Abram’s story, I have enjoyed reading it very much. “My feelings haven’t changed. I’m still insane […]

Book review: Pieces of Us ~ A.L. Jackson

Sometimes the past doesn’t stay in the past, and brings back a lost love, hurt feelings and the promise of a second-chance. Pieces of Us tells the story of Mack and Izzy who fell hard for each other as teenagers, and now as adults get a chance at a do-over. I love this emotional story. “I knew he was more […]

Book review: Touch My Soul ~ Stuart Reardon & Jane Harvey-Berrick

Book review: Touch My Soul ~ Stuart Reardon & Jane Harvey-Berrick

Falling in love with someone you can’t be with (technically speaking). Would you be able to ‘forget’ the object of your affection? Touch My Soul is the story of Ben, who can’t help falling in love with Ru. I have enjoyed reading this romance, but the ending was bittersweet. “When I was 23 and thought life couldn’t get much better, […]
