After reading Friends with Benedicts, I’ve been so excited for Jo’s story. I knew she was going to be an absolute riot, I just didn’t know how much of a joy she would be. And the Blum family and their antics had me roaring with laughter all through this book.
The Wedding Planners follows Jemma and Nash as they navigate life in New York while being forced to plan a wedding together, days after they shared the hottest night of their lives, working around their feelings for each other and their struggles with finding themselves in the mess of it all. It’s a fun, sexy and beautiful read that I think everyone desperately needs in their lives.
Not too long ago, I read and loved Meet Me At the Lighthouse by Mary Jayne Baker, so I was really excited to find another one of her books available for request on NetGalley. And from the blurb, it sounded like it was going to be an absolute riot with enemies to lovers and childhood lovers reuniting. And it was fun, for a while. I absolutely loved Bridie and Ben, because their relationship was so much fun!
There’s just something about the bodyguard trope that does it for me. I love heroes that will burn down the world to protect the heroine – not only because it’s his job, but because he just loves her so much he doesn’t know how else to express it. And with Bridget and Rhys you get so much delicious sexual tension, chemistry and explosive steam that once you start, you won’t be able to put the book down.
Jenny Bunting is the queen of funny, heartfelt, sexy and steamy stories. Every single one of her books has had me laughing, swooning and fanning myself all at the same time.
Elliot Andrews’ romance debut is the first book I’ve read that talks about the pandemic and its existence! I love that. I know that we all want to forget about the pandemic and how it’s affected our lives, but Elliot weaves it into his story seamlessly and it makes sense given the journey that our hero goes through to get to the end of the book.
Like with all the other books in the Calamity Montana series, the characters and their relationship was so nicely crafted. Devney Perry, writing as Willa Nash, has a knack for writing great small town romances with wonderful characters.
This book was so wonderful! Open Lanes is Mary Morano’s debut novel and it was such a good time! And it featured one of my favourite tropes of all time – road trips – so that only made this book that much more exciting and lovely to me.
Home Sweet Mess was such a wonderful read, with so much more under the surface than you realise. The story follows independent social worker Jeni Bishop and charming marketing manager Logan Davis as they go on this journey to falling in love and figuring things out.
The minute someone says ‘enemies to lovers’, I’m there. And The Enemy Trap by Maren Moore is a fun addition to romance novels fitting that trope.
