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.
It was so great to go back to Nashville and hang out with everyone’s favourite rock band. And seeing Liv/Jax and Ella/Cash again made me so happy. I missed Ella so much and I forgot just how fantastic she is, but Melissa did a good job of making me remember and feel the love for this incredible character.
Gimme all of the romances with fat heroines, because I will gobble them up hungrily. And it’s even more special when a fat woman is writing the story, because you can feel the love and attention they put into the character. Mary brings Hannah to life so wonderfully and you root for her from the moment she appears on the page.
I’m the kind of Susannah Nix fan that will get excited when the ARC shows up in her inbox, wait a few days to calm myself and then spend four hours in a day ignoring all my chores and work to just read the book in one sitting.
Returning to Alondra Valley made me really happy and even more because we finally got to hang out with Liam, who we all loved (and got angry with, never hated) in Feels Like Love. But he totally redeemed himself with this one, because he was swoony and charming and hiding the biggest secret of them all!
I feel like of all the Greene siblings, I’ve barely paid attention to Mandi before. Not for anything else but the fact that in the previous seven books, I can’t remember her making too big of an appearance. So it was great to see her in this one and to fully see her for who she is—caring, generous and selfless.
Is anyone surprised that Jenny Bunting wrote another brilliant and hilarious forced proximity novella? Nope, not a single soul. This novella was everything I expected from Jenny and what I hoped would happen to Thumper. The situation, the feelings, the banter, the flirting—it was all so fantastic, I never wanted the book to end. And not to mention just how much fun it was to return to Goldheart!
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’m happy to repeat it every time I read a Susannah Nix book, but I’m such a big fan of her brand of romance. Ever since I read the Chemistry Lessons books, I’ve been hooked and addicted. And now with the final book in her Starstruck series, she’s done it again!
