Well, damn. Devney Perry gave Eloise an incredible story! I have loved the youngest sister of the Eden family and her drive to protect and keep the hotel that’s in her name. I always thought of her as the kindest, sweetest, most generous and hardest working person of the Eden family. Then again, they’re all pretty incredible. But we’ve seen how much Eloise has struggled and how she’s fought to come out on top, so to have her story be all kinds of beautiful made me happy. And don’t even get me started on the grump that is Jasper, oof *fans self*
Harlow James’ Ladies Who Brunch series is made up of the most amazing friendships ever. That’s the thing I love most about these books. The four women who spend their Sundays drinking and talking and having a good time are truly such an incredible group. And then you add in fantastic steam, entertaining humour and gorgeous men; you have a series that will keep you hooked!
Much like the first book of the Bower Boys series, this one had me swooning and cheering and laughing and crying all at the same time. Kelly Siskind has a masterful way of writing these kinds of stories, with heroes who have baggage that they struggle to overcome and heroines who are powerful and empathetic at the same time.
I’m the kind of Roni Loren fan that will blindly submit myself to reading every single book she writes. I’ve been working through her backlist slowly, but one day, I will have read everything because I am so completely captivated by her storytelling. It’s not just the plots and unique twists that she writes, it’s the way her characters grow on the page as you read the story.
I didn’t know I needed a gender-flipped The Phantom of the Opera retelling in my life till I was four pages into Jen Comfort’s novel. I’m pretty sure I dreamed about this book when I wasn’t reading it, it completely captivated me from the start.
As a fan of Piper Rayne, I was obviously bursting at the seams with excitement about another sports series by the duo! I loved the Hockey Hotties series so much and when we got to meet Lee in the last book, I knew I was going to enjoy the shenanigans that the Kingsmen got up to in their books. And Piper Rayne did not disappoint!
Carrie Aarons pens some of my favourite holiday stories and this one, the clashing and smashing of Lark and Collin, was no exception. Everything from the concept to the storytelling, I was hooked. I loved the easy flow of the story, the characters that were introduced. And as someone who gets grumpy about the holidays, I totally related to Lark.
I was really excited to head back to Alondra Valley and hang out with all of our old friends. And Jenna Hartley delivered an emotional and beautiful story that is equal parts heartwarming, sexy and absolutely forbidden. But that’s what made this story so much fun to read and enjoy!
Victoria Wilder has done it again. I mean, I had no doubt in my mind that she’d give us the most perfect story for Henry and Giselle after all that teasing we got in book one. But I didn’t expect things to go the way they did and I gotta say…I loved every single minute of it. From Victoria’s writing to the plot and the characters, the entire Riggs family and the town of Strutt’s Peak—this book was absolutely perfect.
I have absolutely been enjoying everything about this series. With each book, Elizabeth O’Roark introduces us to a new and delicious book boyfriend. While Joshua Bailey will always be my number one, I have loved all the others in their own little ways.
