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.
When I read Find Your Way Home earlier this year, I loved the concept of the sister towns and the three women showing up in New Zealand to help with their tourism and help the town make more money. We met the women and got to know them and met the men who would one day sweep them off their feet.
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.
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.
As someone who has loved Elsie Silver’s stories since the beginning, it’s absolutely no surprise that this book made me feel all the things. One of the things that Elsie does really well is creating characters that you want to be friends with and characters you want to get tangled up in the sheets with all at the same time. She writes some of the best grumps and her steamy scenes are off the charts!
I want to start this review by saying that I wept quite a bit through this story. That just goes to show how powerful and beautiful Ava’s writing is too. It’s a marriage in crisis story about two people with broken hearts and broken pasts trying to find their way back to each other.
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.
If you’ve read Amy’s Landry Love series, then you’ve already encountered Sawyer Fletcher a few times. As the good guy veterinarian in the small town of Landry, he’s had the attention and affection of The League for years. But after a bunch of failed dates and complicated situations, they’ve backed off. Till they decide to sign him up for their town’s version of The Bachelor. This book had so many laugh out loud moments, but also tons of swoon and let’s not even forget the fact that the good guy has the dirtiest mouth ever!
Oof. This book knocked me on my backside from the minute I started reading! If it wasn’t for the need to sleep, I would have probably just read through the night and sobbed my way through most of it too. I’m still fairly new to Corinne Michaels’ stories, but I am definitely ready to get caught up in more! This one had a great balance of suspense, small towns and a swoony romance.
