“Naughty List” by Melanie A. Smith is part of the Mine This Winter anthology that features sixteen other authors writing about love during the holidays. While you don’t have to read Tough Love to enjoy this little novella, I’ll be honest…knowing everything about Mia and Nate before reading about Joanie’s sexcapades was definitely a bonus.

Hannah Bonam-Young is one of those writers that could probably write a book about what goes into making paper, and it would still be the best thing ever written. I read and loved Next of Kin earlier this year, so obviously I knew I was going to love this one as well. And, I already love all of the stories she hasn’t written yet.
It was fun, lighthearted for the most part, it had a fun meet-cute and great family dynamics (if you ignore both her parents and his biological dad). There’s also a pet chicken involved and while I loved the scenes with Chick-Chick, I feel like she took over a lot of the story.
Melanie Harlow knocked it out of the park with Tempt. Everything about Millie and Zach was sheer perfection—the romance, the steam, the relationship—and I never wanted it to end. Zach might just be my favourite Melanie Harlow hero too.
Well, damn. I discovered Jasmin Miller through her Kings of the Water series and fell in love with her stories. So to have Jasmin release a mafia romance and rock my socks off with should have been expected. I don’t read a lot of mafia romances, but I can tell you that I absolutely devoured and loved this one.
Every single one of these Love at Knockdown books has been absolutely stunning and I am constantly amazed by Skye Kilaen’s writing. She creates really great characters who bring so much more to the story than just being part of a relationship, and that makes you not only relate to them on so many levels, but also makes you love them just a little more.
We have only waited for Jules and Ruben’s story for like ever and Juliette Cross did not disappoint when she delivered this one. Through the first four books, we’ve seen these two characters moving around each other like animals waiting for the moment to attack, but to really and fully understand the extent of their relationship and why they are the way they are really made this story even more special.
I absolutely love all of Adriana Locke’s small town romances. She creates these beautiful little towns filled with a host of incredible characters, then tosses in a romance that will make you swoon. How is that not absolutely perfect? And with The Sweet Spot, she brings in Palmer and Cole in a romance that made me smile and tear up all at once. And let’s not even forget the wonderfulness of Ethan.
With Katia Rose, I know I’m always going to get a romance that makes me feel all of the things and makes me wish I was part of that world and could hang out with these characters. And it’s no different with Girlfriend Material.
Catherine Cowles’ Tattered & Torn series has me in a chokehold, so you can imagine how desperately I was waiting for Shiloh’s book. And not a single minute of it was disappointing. We’ve been watching quiet and cautious Shiloh slowly find her strength through four books, so to have her be able to tell her story, see her fall in love and find the peace she’s been missing for so long was quite something.
