Book review: Wish You Were Mine ~ Tara Sivec

A girl and two boys, three best friends since childhood. What happens when they grow up and unrequited love gets into the mix? Wish You Were Mine by Tara Sivec tells the story of Cameron, Everett and Aiden, three inseparable friends. I love their story. “I’m done hiding how I feel about her, and it’s time she knew the truth […]

Book review + excerpt: Miss Fix-It ~ Emma Hart

Book review + excerpt: Miss Fix-It ~ Emma Hart

I read all kinds of books, from very sweet to very dark and everything in between. The more ‘difficult’ books can influence my mood, and the only thing that helps is a cute story. And that’s what Miss Fix-It is for me. It’s a swoony story about a couple with great chemistry and two sweet 4-year-olds. I adore this book. […]

Book review: A Little Too Late ~ Staci Hart

Book review: A Little Too Late ~ Staci Hart

Falling for you nanny, a good idea or not? A Little Too Late is the latest book by Staci Hart, and tells the story of Charlie and Hannah. Given the description I expected a bit of a taboo story, but A Little Too Late is sweet with some drama. I’ve enjoyed reading it. “A moment hung between us, just a […]

Book review: Written in Flames ~ Ashleigh Giannoccaro & Eva Logan

Book review: Written in Flames ~ Ashleigh Giannoccaro & Eva Logan

Can two deeply damaged people fall in love and build a ‘normal’ relationship? Written in Flames tells the story of Nolan and Delilah, who are each trapped in their own kind of hell. The book is a teamwork from Ashleigh Giannoccaro and newbie author Eva Logan. I’ve enjoyed reading this Romantic Suspense story. “She is more alluring than any fire, […]

Book review: Thicker Than Water ~ Dylan Allen

Book review: Thicker Than Water ~ Dylan Allen

After reading Rise and Remember, I was very curious about Dylan Allen’s new book, Thicker Than Water. This new book is not just a standalone, romantic story, but it also portrays a very prevalent issue in America. I love how the developing relationship between Lucía and Reece and this subject are getting entwined, without becoming too much. Another great story […]

Book review + excerpt: Battle Scars ~ Jane Harvey-Berrick

I love all kinds of romantic stories; dramatic, dark, over-the-top, you name it. But every once in a while, I want a ‘normal’ story without any extras… Just a realistic story about two people falling in love and trying to make it work. That’s what Battle Scars by Jane Harvey-Berrick is for me. I love the story of MJ and […]

Book review + excerpt: Exes with Benefits ~ Nicole Williams

A second-chance. Could you fall all over again for the man that drove you away? Nicole Williams’s Exes with Benefits tells the story of Maggie and Canaan, a story full of emotions, regrets and secrets. I love it. “Canaan. I hadn’t seen or heard from him since that night. It was almost like he’d never existed. Save for that gaping […]

Book review + excerpt: Most Valuable Playboy ~ Lauren Blakely

Cooper and Violet know each other for a long time, and are close friends. But in Most Valuable Playboy – Lauren Blakely’s latest book – their friendship starts to change… I love a good from-friends-to-lovers story, and that’s what this book is. A sweet, sexy sports romance told through Cooper’s eyes, I love it! “I’m an everything woman.” She lets […]

Book review: Muscle Memory ~ Stylo Fantôme

Book review: Muscle Memory ~ Stylo Fantôme

It’s been a few days since I’ve finished Muscle Memory, and I can’t stop thinking about the story. I know Stylo Fantôme for her wild stories, kick-ass heroines (with a little lack of self-preservation) and flawed heroes, but Muscle Memory is something else. It’s beautiful, romantic and full of feelings, I simply love this heartbreaking story. “Her heart was breaking […]

Book review: Dating the Billionaire ~ Poppy Dunne

Book review: Dating the Billionaire ~ Poppy Dunne

Dating the Billionaire is Poppy Dunne’s third book, and tells the story of Dahlia and Jack. Like her other books this story is a funny RomCom with laughter, but also with some serious moments. I love Dahlia and her ‘rules’, and how Jack handles them (or more likely, makes Dahlia forget them). “A good book? Same thing as a good […]
