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 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.
It was fun, lighthearted for the most part, it had a fun meet-cute and great family dynamics (if you ignore both her parents and his biological dad). There’s also a pet chicken involved and while I loved the scenes with Chick-Chick, I feel like she took over a lot of the story.
When I read Find Your Way Home earlier this year, I loved the concept of the sister towns and the three women showing up in New Zealand to help with their tourism and help the town make more money. We met the women and got to know them and met the men who would one day sweep them off their feet.
I absolutely love all of Adriana Locke’s small town romances. She creates these beautiful little towns filled with a host of incredible characters, then tosses in a romance that will make you swoon. How is that not absolutely perfect? And with The Sweet Spot, she brings in Palmer and Cole in a romance that made me smile and tear up all at once. And let’s not even forget the wonderfulness of Ethan.
I’ve been hearing so much about Kelly Farmer’s books, so when I got approved for this ARC, I was really excited to read it. It’s got so many great things—it’s a sports romance, rivals to lovers, second chances, single mom, opposites attract—and Kelly tied all of this (and more) together to create a really captivating story.
Written exclusively from Avery’s perspective, The Last Encore is not only a love story between Avery and Josh, but it’s also a love story to the city of Toronto.
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.
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.
There were so many things going for this book that should have worked for me, but I struggled through it. And I entirely believe that this is a ‘me’ problem and might be a book enjoyed by others. It took me a really long time to warm up to the characters.
