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.
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.
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.
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.
