Book review + excerpt: The Hot One ~ Lauren Blakely

The Hot One is Lauren Blakely’s latest romantic comedy and tells us the story of Tyler and Delaney. Throughout college they were a couple, until they weren’t. The Hot One is about their second-chance to make it work this time. It’s told in a double POV and I love it! “What do you say? Do you say ‘you should give […]

Book review: Preston’s Honor ~ Mia Sheridan

Book review: Preston’s Honor ~ Mia Sheridan

Mia Sheridan is one of those authors that writes beautiful, heartbreaking stories. They seem simple, but for some reason they always stay with me for days. Preston’s Honor is just like the author’s other books; a sweet and painful story I can’t stop thinking about. I love Preston, Annalia and their story. “What about you, Preston? Are you going to […]

Book review: Goalie ~ M.E. Carter

Book review: Goalie ~ M.E. Carter

I love reading romantic stories in all its various degrees. Happy, sad, brutal, I have no subject I’m ‘scared’ off. However, there’s one topic I try to stay away from as much as possible; cheating. I just can’t read about it, it makes me sad for the person who’s cheated on and so angry at the cheater. M.E. Carter’s new […]

Worth the Wait is the newest book by Claudia Conner. While the book is the first in a new series, it’s closely connected to ‘the McKinney Brothers series’, especially with the second book Worth the Risk. Worth the Wait tells the heartbreaking, second-chance story of Nick and Mia; two people who have loved each other for a long time but […]

Book review: Three Sweet Nothings ~ Nikki Sloane

Book review: Three Sweet Nothings ~ Nikki Sloane

Three Sweet Nothings by Nikki Sloane is already the 5th book in ‘the Blindfold Club series’. Like the other books in the series it tells the story of two people working out a relationship, with some little added kink. Three Sweet Nothings can be read as a standalone, but I recommend you read the whole series. Not only to get […]

Book review: Searching for Disaster ~ Jennifer Probst

Searching for Disaster is Jennifer Probst latest book – and sadly the last one – in ‘the Searching For series’. Like the other books in the series, matchmaking company Kinnection and ‘the book of spells’ play a role in the story. This book tells the story of Izzy, the twin sister of Gen (her story is told in Searching for […]

Book review: Wide Open Spaces ~ Aurora Rose Reynolds

Book review: Wide Open Spaces ~ Aurora Rose Reynolds

I have to be honest. The moment Aurora Rose Reynolds posted the first version of chapter 1 on Facebook Wide Open Spaces made me nervous. I wanted to whole story right away and I didn’t like the hero from what I had read. But, knowing the author and her work I knew she wouldn’t disappoint me. And although I have […]

Book review: Rock Wedding ~ Nalini Singh

Book review: Rock Wedding ~ Nalini Singh

One of my favorite books of last year was Rock Redemption by Nalini Singh. It was beautiful and heartbreaking, like other books by this author. At the end a small hint was given about the broken relationship between Abe and Sarah, and it made me curious. Rock Wedding gives us their story. “She’d never wanted the divorce. She’d wanted Abe […]
