Oof. This book knocked me on my backside from the minute I started reading! If it wasn’t for the need to sleep, I would have probably just read through the night and sobbed my way through most of it too. I’m still fairly new to Corinne Michaels’ stories, but I am definitely ready to get caught up in more! This one had a great balance of suspense, small towns and a swoony romance.

There’s just something about Julie Olivia’s stories that make me feel all warm and fuzzy. And with her new Honeywood series, it’s constant warm and fuzzies and I am all about it. With this second book in the series of standalones, we’re treated to some very special tropes and some very special characters.
I knew, with every bone in my body, that Penelope’s book was going to make me go through all of the feels and just completely short-circuit my brain. And I was right. As the loud and outspoken and sex positive one of the group, I knew that she was going to be a hard one to pin down in a romantic relationship, but Harlow gave us such a beautiful story and a wonderful book about allowing yourself to feel something even when the past was holding you back.
I read and loved On the Edge so much earlier this year and was really excited when Julia announced that book two would be about Sierra. Her kindness and genuine soul in book one made me love her so much, so obviously I was looking forward to what shenanigans she would get upto in her own book. And all of the feels I felt were unexpected, but so heartwarming anyway.
Ava Hunter is truly just out there writing heartwrenching stories featuring beautiful characters and a whole lot of suspense that keeps you on the edge of your seat. If you’ve read the first two books (and the novella), then you already know enough about Seth and Lacey.
Did I spend my Wednesday shirking all responsibilities and reading this book? You bet your ass I did. And I have zero regrets. Because Max Monroe definitely saved the swooniest and the best of the brothers for the end.
This might be one of my favourite debuts of the year. Victoria Wilder has written such a brilliant story, one that sucked me in and held me in its tight grip till I finished it. Once I started, I forced myself to slow down so I could fully enjoy this story, because it’s so fantastic.
Whenever it comes to Melanie Harlow’s books, I never know what I’m going to get. But she never disappoints. And with this second generation of Cloverleigh Farm characters, my heart is full. This is the third book featuring the kids of the original set of characters from Cloverleigh Farms and Bellamy Creek; and I have loved every single one so much that I never want this series to end!
I am completely and wholly obsessed with Katia Rose’s sapphic/NBLW romances, because they’re so real and relatable and it warms the cold cold heart in my chest. Her characters are complex and have so much to offer, she puts her 100% into crafting this world and these stories that everyone can enjoy.
Here’s the thing about Elsie Silver’s books—they’re all epically good. Not a single book has disappointed me since I picked up Out of the Gate and this one did the trick too. Elsie has a way with writing tropes, characters and worlds that other people don’t and that’s what I really love about her stories.
