As a long time Piper Rayne fan, I was excited when they announced that they’d written a holiday romance. I’m not one for Christmas in real life, but I love reading about people falling in love during the holidays. And obviously when one of my favourite author duos decides to dip their toes into the subgenre, I’m going to be there.
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.
I’ve been hearing so much about Kelly Farmer’s books, so when I got approved for this ARC, I was really excited to read it. It’s got so many great things—it’s a sports romance, rivals to lovers, second chances, single mom, opposites attract—and Kelly tied all of this (and more) together to create a really captivating story.
Excuse me while I swoon and smile again over the perfection that is Grady Miller. We spent four books getting to know this guy and he’s always been the loudest, wildest and most inappropriate character in the series. And yet, when his own book comes around, you really learn just how incredibly special he is. It’s impossible to hate or even dislike Miller, because he’s a cinnamon roll puppy and he’s so sweet.
Devney Perry (writing as Willa Nash) always comes up with the most unique and interesting storylines to put her characters through the wringer. And with The Brawl, that’s no different. This book was fun, sexy and cute; but it also tackled some pretty hard topics and was handled so well.
I feel like I’ve spent a good portion of my reading life with the Greene family, so to know that this is the last book (till the 2nd generation series comes out) makes me sad. But also happy, because all of them discovered something about themselves and they’ve found love and happiness of their own.
I’d seen so many positive things about this book, so obviously I was really excited to read it. I read and loved The Rebound not too long ago and when this was announced, I jumped at the chance to get my hands on the ARC. And it was so special and so unique.
There was so much to love about this book! And while it’s 100% a Carrie Aarons romance with all of the swoon and angst factors, I also love that this book was essentially Carrie’s love letter to the city of London.
