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.
Every single one of these Love at Knockdown books has been absolutely stunning and I am constantly amazed by Skye Kilaen’s writing. She creates really great characters who bring so much more to the story than just being part of a relationship, and that makes you not only relate to them on so many levels, but also makes you love them just a little more.
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.
If you asked me who I trust to write gripping romantic suspense and keep me hooked from the get go, I would definitely say Kimberly Kincaid. I may not have read all of her books (or a lot, to be very honest), but the ones I have read have captivated me completely.
As someone who has loved Elsie Silver’s stories since the beginning, it’s absolutely no surprise that this book made me feel all the things. One of the things that Elsie does really well is creating characters that you want to be friends with and characters you want to get tangled up in the sheets with all at the same time. She writes some of the best grumps and her steamy scenes are off the charts!
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.
There was so much to love about this book! And while it’s 100% a Carrie Aarons romance with all of the swoon and angst factors, I also love that this book was essentially Carrie’s love letter to the city of London.
One of the things I love about Evie’s writing is that it’s the fun kind and it almost feels like you’re just hearing Evie speak as she tells the story. Which makes me wonder what an audiobook of her stories would be like! But also, I enjoyed this one for the softness of hard Charlie and the soulfulness of beautiful Valentina.
There’s just something about Julie Olivia’s stories that make me feel all warm and fuzzy. And with her new Honeywood series, it’s constant warm and fuzzies and I am all about it. With this second book in the series of standalones, we’re treated to some very special tropes and some very special characters.
As a sucker for friends to lovers, and also a fan of Erin’s debut last year, I was super stoked to dive into this one. And it was such a fun and entertaining read. There was so much to love about this book and even though at times I did feel like things were dragging a little, it always seemed to pick itself back up and deliver another punch of feels to the gut!
