This was such an interesting book and I commend Gillian Libby on a fun debut. It’s got a combination of a lot of things I love about a romance and while I honestly thought this would be a women’s fiction sort of story, it had some steamy bits that really took me in the opposite direction. It’s got great friendships, a charming hero, a beautiful beach location and loads of surfing.
I love it when a book is unexpectedly wonderful that it makes you sit down for three hours after you wake up and read it in one go. That’s exactly what happened with The Comic Con by Dee Lagasse.
When it comes to writing small town, family centric romances, nobody does it better than Adriana Locke. Her families are wholesome, filled with quirky characters and the hottest siblings ever. And it’s never just one book, you get all their love stories and then some.
When you put these two characters together on a drunken night in Vegas, what do you get? A shotgun wedding that turns into a marriage of convenience and a friends to lovers situation that takes something we all know and love so well, but with a spin.
Going into this book, I honestly had no idea what I was getting myself into. But let me just say that Corinne Michaels took me on a rollercoaster of emotions. One minute I was laughing and enjoying the Parkerson family shenanigans and dynamics and the next, I was weeping into my pillow. But when a book can make you feel so much and put you through that kind of chaos in 300 something pages, then you know you’re in for a treat. An emotional one, but still a book that you must have in your life.
From the moment we met Ryan and Rhodes in Puck Shy, I knew that I was going to absolutely love their book. I just didn’t realise how much it would make me feel. This book took things to a whole new level and I couldn’t stop reading once I started, and yes, it made me feel everything.
You know how sometimes you find yourself struggling to like a character so much that you keep reading in hopes that something redeems them by the end? That was Camden Hayes for me as I read Wild & Bright, Skyler Mason’s second book following her intense and emotional Revenge Cake last year. I also want to add that this book might not be for everyone even if I love it. As mentioned in the warnings, there are some topics that might not work for people and you should go into this book with an open mind.
I really loved and enjoyed The Bet when it came out earlier this year and even then, I think I’d already decided that Flynn was my favourite Winslow brother and once I read this book, I knew I was right in thinking that. Because he’s such a big change from Max Monroe’s usual heroes and I loved him so hard.
Reading Brooklyn Monroe Wants It All made me very aware of how few romance I’ve read that feature characters over the age of 40, but also how much I enjoy them and want to read more!
If you know me even a little, you know that I love Jenny Bunting and her stories, so it will come as no surprise that I loved Fool’s Gold, the first in a new series featuring a family in a small town. And if that’s not enough, we get to meet some familiar faces from previous books and altogether, it just made me really happy.
