Much like the first book in the series (Here to Stay), On The Hustle is a book filled with heart, friendships, found family and some of the best steam ever written. I might not have read a lot of Adriana Herrera’s books, but the ones I have read tell me that I can always expect and enjoy smouldering steam and I am grateful for that.
It was so great to go back to Nashville and hang out with everyone’s favourite rock band. And seeing Liv/Jax and Ella/Cash again made me so happy. I missed Ella so much and I forgot just how fantastic she is, but Melissa did a good job of making me remember and feel the love for this incredible character.
I feel like I’ve spent a good portion of my reading life with the Greene family, so to know that this is the last book (till the 2nd generation series comes out) makes me sad. But also happy, because all of them discovered something about themselves and they’ve found love and happiness of their own.
I’d seen so many positive things about this book, so obviously I was really excited to read it. I read and loved The Rebound not too long ago and when this was announced, I jumped at the chance to get my hands on the ARC. And it was so special and so unique.
If you’ve read Amy’s Landry Love series, then you’ve already encountered Sawyer Fletcher a few times. As the good guy veterinarian in the small town of Landry, he’s had the attention and affection of The League for years. But after a bunch of failed dates and complicated situations, they’ve backed off. Till they decide to sign him up for their town’s version of The Bachelor. This book had so many laugh out loud moments, but also tons of swoon and let’s not even forget the fact that the good guy has the dirtiest mouth ever!
There was so much to love about this book! And while it’s 100% a Carrie Aarons romance with all of the swoon and angst factors, I also love that this book was essentially Carrie’s love letter to the city of London.
One of the things I love about Evie’s writing is that it’s the fun kind and it almost feels like you’re just hearing Evie speak as she tells the story. Which makes me wonder what an audiobook of her stories would be like! But also, I enjoyed this one for the softness of hard Charlie and the soulfulness of beautiful Valentina.
Gimme all of the romances with fat heroines, because I will gobble them up hungrily. And it’s even more special when a fat woman is writing the story, because you can feel the love and attention they put into the character. Mary brings Hannah to life so wonderfully and you root for her from the moment she appears on the page.
As a sucker for friends to lovers, and also a fan of Erin’s debut last year, I was super stoked to dive into this one. And it was such a fun and entertaining read. There was so much to love about this book and even though at times I did feel like things were dragging a little, it always seemed to pick itself back up and deliver another punch of feels to the gut!
Returning to Alondra Valley made me really happy and even more because we finally got to hang out with Liam, who we all loved (and got angry with, never hated) in Feels Like Love. But he totally redeemed himself with this one, because he was swoony and charming and hiding the biggest secret of them all!
