Here’s the thing about Elsie Silver’s books—they’re all epically good. Not a single book has disappointed me since I picked up Out of the Gate and this one did the trick too. Elsie has a way with writing tropes, characters and worlds that other people don’t and that’s what I really love about her stories.
If there’s one thing that Corinne Michaels does really well, it’s write an emotionally charged story. The blurb of this book had me hooked and even though I got the gist of it from there, I was still so unsure about what was going to happen. And this book opened with pain and it was so beautifully crafted.
I don’t know how Brit Benson does it, but it’s her third book and she had me hooked, laughing out loud and in tears through the course of this story. I have loved these group of friends and their shenanigans.
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.
This is my first book by Jackie Ashenden, but it certainly won’t be my last. I am obsessed with her writing and her storytelling, it’s so immersive and beautiful. I am totally captivated by the visual picture she painted of this small New Zealand town and all I wanted to do was visit this place and never leave.
Max Monroe are on a mission—completely destroy us with all the Winslow brothers. I never would have imagined that there would be a bunch of characters wilder and dirtier than Thatcher Kelly and then she gave us these four brothers. They’re all so drastically different, which means that every book is unique and special in some way or the other.
Let me just start by saying that this is Jen Morris’s hottest book yet. It helps that we have both Josie and Cory’s perspectives, giving the story more punch and insight into the mind of one of her best heroes yet too!
If I was to ever write a letter to Elsie Silver it would be to remind her that she’s killed me four (and a half, for that delicious novella that set this whole series in motion) times since I’ve met her and I am absolutely okay with it.
What an incredible debut by Hannah Smith! Hazy Love is the story of 27 year old Hazel Jones going through the motions following a break-up with her cheating ex, lots of drinking to numb herself and the constant struggle of being unable to do the one thing she wants.
I’ve been really excited about this story ever since Adriana Locke started hinting about it and finally when we got to Resolution (the final book in the Mason family series), I was so excited to see all of that come full circle! I loved Hollis in The Relationship Pact, so to have him in this book made my heart really happy.
