When Melanie Harlow announced that she was going back to Cloverleigh Farms and bringing the kids of the original gang to life, I squealed so loud. I have loved the Sawyer family so much that I was sad when the books ended. Sure, we got the awesome Bellamy Creek group too, but the Cloverleigh gang was who introduced me to Melanie and I wanted more. And now we have it!
I gotta start by saying that this book delivered way more than I ever thought I would get. While the third in the Marriage series, this is my second book by Sara and I am hooked. I can’t wait to read The Dating Plan next and immerse myself in all this wild fun and craziness.
I really loved and enjoyed The Bet when it came out earlier this year and even then, I think I’d already decided that Flynn was my favourite Winslow brother and once I read this book, I knew I was right in thinking that. Because he’s such a big change from Max Monroe’s usual heroes and I loved him so hard.
The one thing I know I’m always going to get when I read a Catherine Cowles book is a great suspense storyline and she did not disappoint! Anna and Mason have tragic backstories that connect them through the book, but also strengthens their relationship a lot. And I didn’t expect to be wrung so dry of my feelings and emotions as I read this book. It totally caught me off guard, but I appreciated the journey it took me on through these characters.
I thought Lena Hendrix had smacked me in the feels when I was reading Finding You, but nothing prepared me for the way my heart and soul exploded as I was reading Keeping You. In keeping with Lena’s brand of steam, the second book in the series is also powerful and tackles grief, finding love and yourself in a beautiful way.
This might be the hottest Max Monroe book I’ve read. And I mean…Jude and Sophie might put Thatch and Cassie to shame, which is saying a lot. But good god, the heat is ALL THE WAY UP in this book and I loved every minute of it.
Finding You is an emotional rollercoaster of a romance, and it’s also a wonderful debut by Lena Hendrix. This small town brother’s best friend romance is full of heart, steam and lots of great feels.
Grumpy Cowboy is the third in the Single Dad collection and if you know me at all, know that I love the single parent trope and would read every single book that fulfilled that trope. But they tossed in enemies to lovers, grump and sunshine, cowboy and city girl, slow burning in a small town and even added their famous brand of humour.
This is my first Catherine Cowles book and good lord, it was beautiful. I loved the premise of the book, but I didn’t know what I was going to experience as I went into it. The characters were so well crafted and beautiful, and the story so powerful. I loved every minute of this book because it dug deep into my heart and soul and made me feel so much for these characters.
Adriana Locke’s brand of contemporary romance is totally my thing. She writes interesting and relatable characters, dealing with complicated and heart wrenching issues and struggles, but she also adds her own magic with family love, humour, banter and incredible writing.
