Teagan Hunter is one of those authors that I have loved since I read her Texting series. Her humour is spot on, her banter is fantastic and if there’s a chapter or two with just texting between the characters, I’m here for it.

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*
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.
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.
“Naughty List” by Melanie A. Smith is part of the Mine This Winter anthology that features sixteen other authors writing about love during the holidays. While you don’t have to read Tough Love to enjoy this little novella, I’ll be honest…knowing everything about Mia and Nate before reading about Joanie’s sexcapades was definitely a bonus.
Melanie Harlow knocked it out of the park with Tempt. Everything about Millie and Zach was sheer perfection—the romance, the steam, the relationship—and I never wanted it to end. Zach might just be my favourite Melanie Harlow hero too.
Catherine Cowles’ Tattered & Torn series has me in a chokehold, so you can imagine how desperately I was waiting for Shiloh’s book. And not a single minute of it was disappointing. We’ve been watching quiet and cautious Shiloh slowly find her strength through four books, so to have her be able to tell her story, see her fall in love and find the peace she’s been missing for so long was quite something.
I want to start this review by saying that I wept quite a bit through this story. That just goes to show how powerful and beautiful Ava’s writing is too. It’s a marriage in crisis story about two people with broken hearts and broken pasts trying to find their way back to each other.
