With every book in the Tattered & Torn series, I fall more and more in love with Catherine Cowles’ writing and the worlds she builds. There’s just so much going on, so much to love and enjoy and at the heart of it, it’s stories about real people that captivates you from the moment you pick up a book.
I have been enjoying Karen Booth’s Never Too Late series because all the books follow characters above the age of 40 finding themselves, finding love and a second chance at life. And that’s really special.
I think Amy Alves was saving the most emotional of these stories for the end, because there is absolutely nothing in the world that could have prepared me for how much this book made me feel.
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.
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!
Eve Kasey has ruined me yet again. I don’t even know how she does it every single time. Can’t Help Loving You is a beautiful story of finding love with the same person for a second time, even if they can’t be with you. It’s a story of finding yourself while falling in love. It’s a story of second chances in general. And in true Eve style, she made it lyrical and poetic and beautiful and just…there aren’t enough words in the English language to express just how beautiful this book was.
Told entirely in first person, through Naomi’s perspective, The Close-Up is a really interesting romance with a fun plot and intriguing characters.
There’s something so magical about Skye Kilaen’s stories and it’s not only because they’re incredibly inclusive and take all the steps to make everyone reading the book feel seen, but because the stories are about so much more than the romance between the main characters.
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.
This might be Staci Hart’s softest book yet and I absolutely loved it for that reason. It’s a grump x sunshine romance featuring the eldest of the Blum sisters and the eldest brother of the Meyer gang. Daisy and Keaton have such an incredible romance and one that I spent most of my time swooning over.
