Even if you’ve not read the previous two books in the series, this one works perfectly well as a standalone. And if you have read the first two, then you are going to love this one because my god it was so beautiful.
I spent the last few hours staring at my notes for this review, because where does one even begin when reviewing a brilliant Kandi Steiner book? I’m still gathering my thoughts, so I’m gonna miss stuff and there’s a good chance this sounds like gibberish at the end.
From the moment this book was announced, I was excited and ready to dive into a whole new Jessica Peterson world. I loved her North Carolina Highlands series and knew that whatever came next would also be truly magical. And she did not disappoint.
I’m sad that this series is over. As someone who has fallen in love with hockey through this series, I’m gonna miss these guys. But, I’ve also been so greedy for Jana and Kane’s story that to finally have it makes me beyond happy.
Tinkering With Love had a really interesting premise and the setting of the first half of the book was so much fun.
If you haven’t read the rest of the Stay a Spell series, then please do that first. They’re so brilliant and wonderful and honestly, Juliette Cross could write a 100 more books in this series and I would be totally fine with it.
I don’t know if I’ve said it before, but 2022 is turning out to be such an amazing year for debuts. Julia Connors’ second chance sports romance is a fantastic debut and one that I am so glad I got to read early! It was an angsty slow burn, with lots of things that I love about romance all rolled into one.
For You & No One Else by Roni Loren was one of my most anticipated reads for 2022 because I absolutely loved and devoured the first two books in the Say Everything series as I got them and I loved what we got to see of Eliza through those stories.
I love a good sapphic romance as much as the next person and I went into The Romance Recipe blindly because I didn’t want my feelings for the book to be clouded by other people’s feelings and opinions. And I’m glad, because I thoroughly enjoyed this one.
Unlike a lot of people, I actually enjoyed Rushed and fell in love with the world that Tanner, Maverick and Blake come from. But this book didn’t have the same feeling. I liked the tropes and I loved the setting of Montana, but something was missing.
