Carrie Aarons pens some of my favourite holiday stories and this one, the clashing and smashing of Lark and Collin, was no exception. Everything from the concept to the storytelling, I was hooked. I loved the easy flow of the story, the characters that were introduced. And as someone who gets grumpy about the holidays, I totally related to Lark.
I was really excited to head back to Alondra Valley and hang out with all of our old friends. And Jenna Hartley delivered an emotional and beautiful story that is equal parts heartwarming, sexy and absolutely forbidden. But that’s what made this story so much fun to read and enjoy!
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.
I have absolutely been enjoying everything about this series. With each book, Elizabeth O’Roark introduces us to a new and delicious book boyfriend. While Joshua Bailey will always be my number one, I have loved all the others in their own little ways.
“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.
Hannah Bonam-Young is one of those writers that could probably write a book about what goes into making paper, and it would still be the best thing ever written. I read and loved Next of Kin earlier this year, so obviously I knew I was going to love this one as well. And, I already love all of the stories she hasn’t written yet.
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.
Well, damn. I discovered Jasmin Miller through her Kings of the Water series and fell in love with her stories. So to have Jasmin release a mafia romance and rock my socks off with should have been expected. I don’t read a lot of mafia romances, but I can tell you that I absolutely devoured and loved this one.
While not a big fan of football (aka soccer), I was really excited when Stacy announced this series. I love the little glimpses we got of Charlie too, because that was my first Stacy Travis book and it still holds a special place in my heart.
As a long time Piper Rayne fan, I was excited when they announced that they’d written a holiday romance. I’m not one for Christmas in real life, but I love reading about people falling in love during the holidays. And obviously when one of my favourite author duos decides to dip their toes into the subgenre, I’m going to be there.
