Jessica Peterson can truly take tropes that make me nervous or ones that I don’t like and turn them into something so beautiful. And she did that with the virgin trope in The Troublemaker.

Truth be told, I didn’t know I wanted a Jeffrey book, but once Harlow James announced that it was coming, it was all I wanted. He was the quintessential best friend in book one who then made amusing appearances through the course of the rest of the books. I loved his fluffy and honest personality in whatever little bits we saw of him. But nothing could have prepared me for how charming and endearing Jeffrey would be, or how honest and kind he’d come across as. I truly enjoyed this book and loved every minute he and Ariel spent together!
I have a very soft corner for all of Carrie Aarons’ books and this one was no different. It’s a second chance romance between two people who were once married and have been divorced for seven years while trying to co-parent and just exist in the same world without letting it break them even further. Sophie and Levi were so great and Hart was fantastic.
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.
What kind of magic does Kandi Steiner possess to write such addictive and obsessive stories? This entire series has been so good and I’ve loved all four books equally. I’m so sad that it’s over, because I want more!
After enjoying the first book in the series and meeting Brady Banks for the first time, I was really excited to see what happened with his book. It was fun and cute, and Piper Rayne have a good way of introducing you to all the other guys who are getting books in the series and making you love them in the process.
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.
