Broken hearts and hurt feelings. You have to work through them, but what happens when you meet someone special while doing so? Too Good at Goodbyes tells the emotional tale of Simone and Kane, who both are not unfamiliar with heartbreak. I just adore their story.

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: Ditched ~ RC Boldt

In most romantic books it’s the hero who has commitment issues, and the heroine who has all the dreams about the perfect Happily Ever After; hubby, kids and everything. But what if it’s the other way around? Ditched tells the story of Ivy and Becket, I simply love this couple. “I think about you, too.” “Do you?” The biggest damn […]

Book review + excerpt: In Harmony ~ Emma Scott

When I pick a new book to read, stories about young people in their late teens are not the first ones I pick. But when Emma Scott announces she’s writing a Young Adult story, of course I can’t say no to it. Yes, Willow and Isaac are young, but sad circumstances made them wise beyond their years. I love the […]

Book review: Keeping It ~ Rachel Robinson

Book review: Keeping It ~ Rachel Robinson

I have a love/hate relationship with Rachel Robinson’s books. I love the stories and the characters, but the angst… Sometimes I want to scream, sometimes I want to cry, but I still keep reading them. I think I’m a bit of an angst-addict. Keeping It however, is very different. Yes, it’s set in the same world as the ‘Real SEAL […]

Book review + excerpt: Undefeated ~ Jane Harvey-Berrick & Stuart Reardon

For some reason I’m not that much into romance books written by men, but when I heard Stuart Reardon was teaming up with one of my favorite authors – Jane Harvey-Berrick – I knew I had to read the result of their collaboration. Undefeated is an honest and real story, I love it. “Nick’s determination was a living thing, pushing […]

Book review: The Art of Us ~ Hilaria Alexander

One moment, one kiss. Is it just a kiss, or does it mean much more? The Art of Us tells the story of Lena and Amos, who did have one moment two years ago. Nothing came of it back then, but now they might have a second chance. I love this story! “Too intense. Too strong. It was too much. […]
