A Kiss for a Kiss by Helena Hunting

4 STARS

Release Date: May 27, 2021

SYNOPSIS: I’m Jake Masterson, single dad, and the General Manager of Seattle’s NHL team. I walked away from a career as a player so I could raise my daughter. For the last twenty-plus years, Queenie has been my main priority, but now she’s getting married. And there’s a small complication. A beautiful, sexy complication named Hanna. 

She’s my son-in-law’s older sister. Or at least that’s how they were raised. The truth is a little more scandalous than that. I’ve been drawn to her from the moment I laid eyes on her. And I spent months trying to keep a lid on that attraction.  Until we finally give in. It starts with one searing kiss, but quickly ends with us between the sheets—and in the shower, and the hot tub, you get the picture—and turns into months of sneaking around. Here’s the problem: we live on opposite ends of the country. It can’t be anything but casual. And as I’ve already said…it’s complicated.  But when Hanna finds out she’s pregnant…suddenly things get real serious.


This is Book 4 in the All In Series!


REVIEW: I’ve have really loved this series! The fact that these standalones are interconnected adds to each story in the best way. Getting to meet characters before we get their stories always makes me more invested in them. After the last book, A Secret for a Secret, it was really neat to see King and Queenie play such a big part in this story. This one was definitely an emotional roller coaster. Hannah and Jake are just so interesting and the situation is just not what I was expecting. Hannah has had a really rough road. It was really interesting getting her full backstory after meeting her and finding out the shocking news about her in the previous book. These two together are so great in the beginning, but get some stuff thrown their way and it’s a damn experience for them. Overall, this was not quite what I was expecting, but it was definitely a good journey for the characters. This one, and Little Lies, are both heavy on the angst and I feel like that makes sense with her writing them during the pandemic. Something Helena hunting does a great job at is writing a group of people that become one big family, whether they’re related or not. I think the ending of this book made me so happy, because of all of the characters from the series show just what it means to be a family!

Chaser by Charity Ferrell

4.5 STARS

Release Date: May 18, 2021

SYNOPSIS:

GRACE
Things I never thought would happen: 
1. Meeting my boyfriend’s secret wife. 
2. Finding out I’m pregnant with his baby. 
3. Having my best friend tell my family he’s the father. 

FINN 
Things I never thought would happen: 
1. Becoming best friends with a woman the total opposite of me. 
2. Pretending to be her baby daddy.
3, Falling in love with her.


This is Book 4 in the Twisted Fox Series!


REVIEW: This one was really sweet! Fin and Grace have the kind of pull that cannot be ignored, even though they’re trying. Seeing them as side characters in the previous books made me very interested to see their relationship on a deeper level. I was completely invested in them before I even opened the book. This is one thing I am loving about this series of interconnected standalones–I am invested in all of the characters finding their HEA! This book also features a trope that I really love in romance books, and that is a man’s dedication to the woman he loves, even if they’re not together! Finn is just such a caring male lead. I really appreciated everything he did in this book for Grace. Of course it can’t be that easy between these two best friends though. Grace ‘s overthinking was justifiable, but definitely made me want to talk some sense into her. The journey for these two is a little messy, but I’m so glad I got to read it. This friend group is just so great and I love seeing them all come together. I’m pretty excited to see what happens to Silas and Lola in Last Round after what occurs during this book between them! Book one, Stirred, is still my favorite, but this one was definitely a good one.

Fallen Jester by Devney Perry

5 STARS

Release Date: May 18, 2021

SYNOPSIS: Leo Winter loves his life. He works when he needs money. He rides when he craves freedom. He frequents the local bar when he wants a good time. The Tin Gypsies might be a memory, but the bachelor life he lived with his motorcycle club still suits him fine. So when a one-night stand surprises him at a family barbecue and claims she’s pregnant with his child, he’s certain he’s died and gone to hell. Cassandra Cline took one night off from her structured life. One. And now her wild fling with the local bad boy has turned her life sideways. Her dreams and academic career are circling the drain, and none of it would have happened if she’d stayed far, far away from Leo. Except avoiding him is impossible, especially when she’s forced to move home to Clifton Forge, Montana. And he refuses to leave her side when a series of strange accidents put her and their baby at risk. But are they accidents? Or is she standing in the middle of a battlefield she doesn’t understand? Her only allies are people she barely knows. And a man who has the potential to steal her heart. If only he’d stop playing the fool.


Fallen Jester is Book 5 in the Tin Gypsy Series!
Motorcycle Clubs and Small Town Romances


REVIEW: This one was definitely a little heart wrenching and I enjoyed every minute of it! We met Cass in the previous book, Noble Prince, when she was kidnapped with Scarlet, and find out that she’s pregnant! In other words, I knew going into this book it was right up my alley. Accidental pregnancy is a favorite of mine when done well. Luckily, Devney Perry tends to do it justice. She’s amazing at giving characters depth in a way that has me invested in them even when they are making poor choices. Cass and Leo had so much going on! It was really interesting to learn about Leo’s past and witness how that all played into how he handled the situation. In the previous books, I think Leo and Emmett are the single, fun guys that care about everyone and show up when they’re needed, but we didn’t know much more than that. Getting to actually know the background for Leo pulled me right into the story and I was looking forward to seeing his growth. Cass is definitely the perfect woman for him. I mean the way she handles him–just her stance on the situation, her understanding–she’s just what he needs. Although I wanted to smack them both throughout the story, I did like how everything played out for these two. The story had such a genuine feel to it. I’m actually sad that the next book will be the end to this series! The characters have all been so interesting. Devney Perry also left us with that little teaser of the next book at the end. Emmett and Nova’s story, Tin Queen, is definitely going to be a doozy!
