I am completely and wholly obsessed with Katia Rose’s sapphic/NBLW romances, because they’re so real and relatable and it warms the cold cold heart in my chest. Her characters are complex and have so much to offer, she puts her 100% into crafting this world and these stories that everyone can enjoy.
Here’s the thing about Elsie Silver’s books—they’re all epically good. Not a single book has disappointed me since I picked up Out of the Gate and this one did the trick too. Elsie has a way with writing tropes, characters and worlds that other people don’t and that’s what I really love about her stories.
I love going back to Camp Bexley and with Moments in Time, we get to explore so much more of the camp. Plus, we get to reconnect with Hope and Anderson from Weight of Regret. One of the things I’ve always liked about KK Allen’s storytelling is the lyrical, almost poetic style of it, and thai one delivered that as much as the other books have. It was soothing to sit back and read, enjoyable and easy to flow through.
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.
If there’s one thing that Corinne Michaels does really well, it’s write an emotionally charged story. The blurb of this book had me hooked and even though I got the gist of it from there, I was still so unsure about what was going to happen. And this book opened with pain and it was so beautifully crafted.
From the moment this book was announced, I was excited and ready to dive into a whole new Jessica Peterson world. I loved her North Carolina Highlands series and knew that whatever came next would also be truly magical. And she did not disappoint.
First of all, it’s hard for me to wrap my head around the fact that this is Hannah’s debut. Because this book is not only heartwarming and joyful, it’s so well written. I read it in two sittings (on the same day), because once I started, the story flowed so beautifully, I couldn’t bring myself to put it down.
It’s official, I am now a Stacy Travis fan girl. When we got a hint of the San Francisco Strikers No Match for Her, I honestly didn’t think I’d care about football/soccer, but it’s clear that Stacy Travis can make me like anything. Plus, with characters like Molly and Holden, it’s almost impossible to not like this book. So much so that I read it in a few hours, because I needed to soak it all up as much as possible!
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 don’t know if I’ve said it before, but 2022 is turning out to be such an amazing year for debuts. Julia Connors’ second chance sports romance is a fantastic debut and one that I am so glad I got to read early! It was an angsty slow burn, with lots of things that I love about romance all rolled into one.
