For You & No One Else by Roni Loren was one of my most anticipated reads for 2022 because I absolutely loved and devoured the first two books in the Say Everything series as I got them and I loved what we got to see of Eliza through those stories.
This was such an interesting book and I commend Gillian Libby on a fun debut. It’s got a combination of a lot of things I love about a romance and while I honestly thought this would be a women’s fiction sort of story, it had some steamy bits that really took me in the opposite direction. It’s got great friendships, a charming hero, a beautiful beach location and loads of surfing.
This book was such a treat. Not only did I not read the blurb to remind myself of what the book was about before I started, but I also decided not to read any reviews either. And I’m so glad. Because I enjoyed this book so much more than I thought I would and having read some of the reviews now, I’m glad I didn’t let those change my thoughts about the book.
I don’t have a lot of experience with historical romances, but I’ve always enjoyed the ones I’ve read. And this one is no different. I went into this friends to lovers romance mostly blind and was pleasantly surprised by the way it was written.
Star Bright follows Kimberleigh Cress as she navigates life leading up to the release of a big movie and heading into another production, while battling with Hollywood nemesis Spencer Devlin who once did an interview with her that got him blacklisted from her career.
This is my first book by Jackie Ashenden, but it certainly won’t be my last. I am obsessed with her writing and her storytelling, it’s so immersive and beautiful. I am totally captivated by the visual picture she painted of this small New Zealand town and all I wanted to do was visit this place and never leave.
When I read Read Between the Lines late last year, I fell in love with Rachel Lacey’s storytelling and writing style. It’s so different from other romances that I’d been reading and I needed more. And then I saw that we were getting a second book in the Ms. Right series and I was so excited! Because Lia Harris was one of my favourite supporting characters in Read Between the Lines and she deserved her happily ever after too!
When it comes to writing small town, family centric romances, nobody does it better than Adriana Locke. Her families are wholesome, filled with quirky characters and the hottest siblings ever. And it’s never just one book, you get all their love stories and then some.
Let me just start by saying that this is Jen Morris’s hottest book yet. It helps that we have both Josie and Cory’s perspectives, giving the story more punch and insight into the mind of one of her best heroes yet too!
There’s something so magical about Skye Kilaen’s stories and it’s not only because they’re incredibly inclusive and take all the steps to make everyone reading the book feel seen, but because the stories are about so much more than the romance between the main characters.
