Reckless Refuge by Catherine Cowles

5 Stars!

Release Date: May 11, 2021

Synopsis: There were shadows I was running from. Ones that haunted and taunted. Ones that made it so I had no choice but to disappear. I’d spent years hiding from the world. My little island haven, the only assurance of safety. It all changed the moment he showed up at my door. The hint of pain in his eyes told me that something haunted him, too. And I couldn’t help but be drawn closer. But finding the person I needed most came with risks I never expected. And when our ghosts find us again, neither of us may make it out this time.


Review: This book was exactly what I wanted it to be! Catherine Cowles is really killing it with this series, and I’m loving all the romantic suspense. The characters, their connections, and friendships have kept me completely invested from book one. I love revisiting this world with every book that comes out. When readers meet Shay in the previous book, Wrecked Palace, she’s such an enigma. I knew she was running from something and I really wanted to know more about her. I think finally getting the horrific story was really interesting, because it wasn’t something I’ve come across in a book before. And then I appreciated the fact that when Brody comes into the story, he also has his own dark past that he’s running from. They both share this connection that most people don’t understand. Catherine Cowles is a queen of romantic suspense! She just pulls me all the way in with the depth of her characters, the twists, the turns, and the connections. Sometimes I can tell what’s going to happen, but sometimes I’m completely surprised. Even when I think I do know what’s going to happen, it’s still done in a way that’s so entertaining and I’ve loved every moment of it. This is why she’s on my auto-buy list now! There were also some new characters introduced in this one that I really hope we get to learn all about in the next books of the series.

Honestly, if you want emotion, suspense, and that happily ever after that the characters definitely deserve, I think this whole series is worth reading. I seriously loved every moment of it. Plus, the covers are absolutely beautiful!

Could Have Been Us by Corinne Michaels

5 STARS

Release Date: April 26, 2021

SYNOPSIS: Fifteen years ago, I fell for Jack O’Donnell. I was just a girl, but I knew my brother’s best friend was the only man I’d ever love. On my eighteenth birthday, when I asked him to kiss me, I never imagined it would change my life so completely. I gave Jack everything that night. In order to move on, we had to go our separate ways and pretend like nothing happened… as though it wasn’t the greatest moment of my life. But even that wasn’t as heartbreaking as the secret we were forced to keep. I’ve tried not to think about how much I still love him. How I long to be back in his strong arms or the way his hazel eyes make my heart race. Until he kisses me again. And this time there’s no turning back. This time I know what it means. We belong together and there’s no use denying it any longer. But our feelings aren’t the only thing that won’t stay buried, our past resurfaces and threatens to destroy our second chance at happiness. When our love is tested once again, will we be strong enough to stand together?


New York Times Bestselling author Corinne Michaels returns to the Willow Creek Valley Series in this stunning small town, brother’s best friend romance.


REVIEW: Wow. This was not where I thought Jack and Stella’s story was going. It was definitely an emotional roller coaster and way deeper than I thought it would be. I think what I like about the Willow Creek Valley series the most is that it has so many layers. There is so much going on with these characters and their relationships. I love the whole family and the friends, pretty much everyone involved. The Parkerson siblings are a wonderful family to each other, their parents not so much. The different family dynamics for all the different characters, play such a big part in what happens to them. Jack is also a part of the family and I love how that played into this story. As soon as I got a hint that there was something between Jack and Stella in Return to Us, I just really wanted them to be together. The trajectory of the story was just not what I thought it be at all and it ended up being so different from anything I’ve read in a while. The ending was really great and it really made the book for me! Plus, we get that little bit of glimpse at the end of what’s to come in the next book, which means I’m counting down the days until we get more Willow Creek Valley stories!

Bad Crush by Rebecca Jenshak

5 STARS!

Release Date: April 26, 2021

SYNOPSIS: Reasons not to crush on Adam:
He’s my best friend’s brother.
He’s my neighbor.
He’s the captain of the hockey team.
He’s a serial monogamist who’s sworn off dating.

Reasons not to fake date Adam:
See above.
He has no idea I actually like him—like really like him.

But do I listen to any of those really great reasons? Of course not.
Now, thanks to my amazing and convincing acting skills, one fake date ends with him being my fake fiancé (oops!).
My bad crush has gotten me in way over my head.


This is Book 2 in the Campus Nights series
and a Best Friend’s Brother, Friends to Lovers Romance!


REVIEW: This freaking series!! Holy crap. I mean I’m obsessed with this series. I love all of the characters. Rebecca Jenshak is just killing it with the depth and the connection between the characters. I really, really loved the first book, and now I really, really love this one. I sincerely enjoy the glimpses of the two main characters readers get to see in the first book, Secret Puck, and how that gave foundation of what the characters were like. Seeing them come together made a lot more sense with the background we get in book one about Adam. Getting to know Reagan was absolutely awesome, because while readers learn about her unrequited crush on Adam, we really don’t get to know much more about her. Just getting to know her more, seeing how amazing she is, the depth to her character, and her past experiences that have brought her to where she is made her utterly endearing. I also feel like I didn’t love Adam in the first book, but that totally changed as I got to know him as a character. How he responds to everything that happens with Reagan and the connection that was built with her were wonderful. There was never an interaction with them that I didn’t like. I think they both had a lot to figure out with all their own baggage coming into play, but I loved seeing them get their act together and find each other.

Another part of the series that’s so amazing is that all the characters are awesome. The side characters are so much fun. I honestly can’t wait until we get the other stories–Maverick, Dakota, and Rhett. I’m pretty excited to see what Rebecca Jenshak does with Maverick’s book, because he is wild but in the best way. And Dakota is a total spitfire. Rhett is next and it’s going to be interesting with the strange long-distance relationship that we’ve seen going on. I just need to know more about him, because from what I’ve seen he is an awesome boyfriend and deserves all happiness. July 13th can’t come soon enough!

My Almost Ex by Piper Rayne

5 STARS

Release Date: March 6, 2021

SYNOPSIS: In the middle of a crowded bar in our small Alaskan town, my estranged wife snuggles up to me as if we’re still a happy couple. Don’t get me wrong, we were a happy couple—before she walked out on me a year ago. We were the high school sweethearts everyone thought were destined to be together forever. We thought so too, which is why we married shortly after graduation. We had a good marriage. Until she left me without any real explanation. Now, she’s back—and this is the real kicker—she has amnesia and thinks I’m still her husband. Technically I am, although the divorce papers are sitting at the lawyer’s office. She’s desperate to remember her life in Sunrise Bay but I only want to find out why she left me. Once we conjure that memory up, it’s sayonara because there’s no second chances here. But as you probably already figured out, things didn’t go quite as I planned.


This is Book 2 in The Greene Family Series
An Amnesia Romance!


REVIEW: Freakin’ adorable! Seriously, I knew when we met Adam in My Beautiful Neighbor I was gonna love his story. The way he began the friendship with Presley, and listened to the random music to deal with his depression over being heartbroken just made him so endearing. I know this is Piper Rayne’s first amnesia romance, and I’ve got to say, I think they knocked it out of the park! Both Adam and Lucy were so lovable. I just wanted them to be together and happy. Of course, Piper Rayne had me laughing out loud during the first scene as per usual. Then you get the real emotion of what the journey is like for the two of them coming back together after everything that’s happened. As the story goes on, things start to fall into place, but what I really loved was the decisions they make as a couple the second time around. They actually stick to their promises and when everything comes out they are definitely #RelationshipGoals! I am sincerely loving the Greene family. It’s really fun seeing Hank and Marla as parents after reading My Twist of Fortune too! And with the juicy little cliffhanger that sets us up for the next book, I CANNOT wait for My Vegas Groom!

Noble Prince by Devney Perry

5 STARS

Release Date: November 10, 2020

SYNOPSIS: The night Luke Rosen met Scarlett Marks was the only time he’s regretted becoming chief of police. One horrific night of blood and death, and now she’s living under his roof—all because he swore an oath to serve and protect. Scarlett is stubborn and infuriating. She has no respect for the order in his structured life, and she never does anything she’s told. Worse, she doesn’t seem to care that the information she has on a motorcycle gang means she might end up dead. But her unwavering strength, her courage and tenacity and beauty, makes it impossible for him to abandon her. If Luke is going to keep her safe, he’ll have to make the hardest decision of his life. He can either honor his values as a cop, knowing Scarlett is unlikely to survive . . . or he can break all the rules and protect the woman who’s invaded his home and his heart.


Noble Prince is Book 4 in the Tin Gypsy Series!
Motorcycle Clubs and Small Town Romances


REVIEW: If you follow my reviews at all, you know I love Devney’s books! And I knew I was going to love this book after meeting Luke Rosen in the previous book. I wanted Luke to get a happy ever after so badly, because he’s just a wonderful person. We also meet Scarlett in the previous book, and I was just curious what her character arc would be like after everything she’s been through. Not only as a child, but also with her ex and how that played out with her twin, I needed things to start working for this woman. After her twin Presley’s story, it definitely seemed a little twisted up with Luke having dated Presley, but I think after reading the previous book I knew that Luke and Presley were more friends than anything else. In the beginning of this one, I wasn’t quite positive how it was all gonna come together, I mean I knew it would, but I couldn’t envision it until it was actually happening. That’s something I love about Devney Perry’s writing, she can make me go from reading a situation where I don’t know exactly how I feel about it to being absolutely, completely invested in the characters and their happy ever after! I sincerely enjoyed the whole journey these two went on. This series seems to keep getting better and better, which is why I cannot wait for Cass and Leo’s book Fallen Jester coming May 18, 2021!

Return to Us by Corinne Michaels

5 STARS

Release Date: February 23, 2021

SYNOPSIS: At eighteen, I walked away from Willow Creek Valley for good. I was young, scared, and stupid, and it cost me the love of my life—Grayson Parkerson. Fourteen years later, a crash sends me back home to recover. Back to where we met, fell in love, and planned a future. The one he’s now living as a single dad to his daughter. Working at The Park Inn together gives us a chance to reconnect, and seeing him with his little girl makes me long for the days when he was mine. One look in his gorgeous blue-green eyes, and it’s like I never left. One kiss, and my world is upside down. One night together, and I know without a doubt, in his arms is where I belong. I’m not the girl I was—intimidated by his wealthy family and desperate to escape our small town. I can imagine a new life for us here. But he’s learned to guard his heart, and trust won’t come easily. How can I convince him to give first love a second chance?


From New York Times Bestselling author Corinne Michaels comes a new second chance standalone love story.


REVIEW: This one is going to hit you right in the feels. I’m obsessed.

Corinne Michaels always does a really great Second Chance Romance and this one was no different! Grayson and Jessica had such a great back story and I love that you could feel their love for each other throughout the whole book. Even when there are issues, I could still feel they’re strong connection and chemistry. All of this made them a couple I was completely invested in.

Grayson’s relationship with his daughter Amelia was absolutely adorable. Amelia is too cute and brings so much to the story! The interactions between Amelia with almost anyone were heartwarming–even the friends like Jack and her aunt Stella, just made me smile.

I also really love Jessica and Jacob Arrowood’s relationship that was solidified from the traumatic experience they share in the beginning of the book. I think it’s really cool when the author brings characters from her other books as side characters, because we get to see those characters we loved in a whole new setting. A theme I really appreciate in books is portraying therapy in a good light, because I personally believe therapy is an amazing tool. The therapist in this book was perfect! She asked great probing questions that I think Jessica needed to hear. I enjoyed how Jessica talked about therapy–she hated it, but loved it at the same time. Her Traumatic Brain Injury added so much to her as a character, and watching her heal was amazing.

Overall this book was the perfect journey with some drama, lots of love, and a perfectly happy ending! I’m really excited to see where this series goes with the rest of the siblings, and the fallout from what’s going to happen with their family and their parents.

The Architect by Nikki Sloan

5 STARS

Release Date: February 23, 2021

SYNOPSIS: On the surface, my new boyfriend is a stiff, buttoned-up architect. He plans every detail of his life while carefully maintaining the walls he’s built around his heart. But when the biggest project of his career pulls him away, Clay’s solution is both temporary and unconventional. It even comes with a name—Travis. This handsome stranger is sweet and thoughtful. He’s only meant to be a stand-in, to fulfill my needs under Clay’s watchful direction, yet these two men couldn’t be more different. The one thing they share? Well, I guess that would be me. One gets off on my pain, the other on my pleasure, and it awakens a desire none of us knew existed. But it can’t last.

Eventually I’ll have to choose.
And it’s going to destroy us all.


This is Book 3 in the Nashville Neighborhood Series (Age-Gap Romances)


REVIEW: *Fans self* Yes, I’m gonna need a tall glass of water after this deliciously steamy read. I mean the story has so much sex from right off the bat that you better have your poker face ready if reading this one in public. Nikki Sloane always writes really hot scenes between the characters but this one was on a-whole-nother level compared to the other Nashville Neighborhood books. Similar to the other books, the relationship was definitely a little taboo compared to what we typically see out in society. The great thing is that Nikki Sloan is wonderful at showing how much the characters care about each other and what the relationships really are about. I loved seeing the growth of the relationships, as well as how the characters not going to be put in a box or labeled. They go after what they want and what makes them happy. Whenever I think about books like this, I think about how people might be scandalized by the taboo part. And it’s funny, because when I read books like this I might think in passing “that probably wouldn’t work for me” but what I’m really focused on is the relationship itself. And when you actually look at the support the characters give each other their relationship is better than a lot of the stereotypical heteronormative relationships that you see going on in our society. That’s what makes this romance a great romance–the characters have genuine love for each other and what else do you want in a romance book? This was by far my favorite of the series!

My Beautiful Neighbor by Piper Rayne

5 STARS

Release Date: February 23, 2021

SYNOPSIS: Who’s the mystery woman who just walked into my brewery?  I’m not the only one from my Alaskan small town asking themselves that question. But I’m positive, I’m the only one in Sunrise Bay undressing the pretty blonde in my head. Everything about her, from her make-up to her high heels says she’s a fish out of water.  Whispers and speculations run rampant until the secret of who she is gets uncovered. Then the rumor mill goes into overdrive when she announces she’s staying to open a bookstore in the building next to mine—throwing a big wrench into my plans to buy that empty building. I quickly find myself in a tug-of-war since my business partner/brother is upset she’s ruined the opportunity to expand our business. I try to keep my distance, but I’ve got one sister with a gossip column on the local radio station and two meddling grandmas setting me up as a tour director. And now I kind of like the idea of our new neighbor staying. But small-town life isn’t for the weak—time will tell if she has what it takes to be one of us.


This is Book 1 in The Greene Family Series!
It’s off to a FANTASTIC start.


REVIEW: WOW. Piper Rayne has done it again, and now I’m obsessed with The Greene Family just like I was obsessed with The Baileys. I just need every single book right this second! I’m really glad I read the novella about the parents of the blended family, My Twist of Fortune, because it got me completely invested in the characters of the story. I think seeing them as kids dealing with everything that was going on gives you a better background into them as adults. I sincerely look forward to seeing how it all plays out for each sibling throughout the series.

Another thing we get as readers is to see little cameos of the Bailey’s! Obviously we get more Grandma Dori, because she’s best friends with Grandma Ethel of the Greene Family. The grandmas definitely add a hilarious factor to this book, and I cannot wait to see their meddling throughout the series. They brought so much laughter to the story at times that I was in tears.

Okay, okay, let’s get to Cade and Presley. I absolutely loved them. There is definitely some slow burn going on with these two and I didn’t know how it was going to go, but man as the story went on I just needed to know what was gonna happen to them. After seeing Cade deal with his dad’s remarriage as a teen in the novella, I was really interested in how that was going to impact him and Presley. And Presley! I kind of loved how stubborn she was, even when Cade was actually being a really great guy. Their chemistry was steamy and I just felt like they really were meant to be together. 

As usual Piper Rayne has given us the gift of a teaser for the next book at the end of this one. These teasers always make me wish I had that next book in my hands right that very second. This teaser specifically was a doozy! Let’s just say Adam–who is adorable in this story and develops a wonderful friendship with Presley–is going to have a book that I feel like I am not going to be able to put down! The count down begins until My Almost Ex!!

Blindsided by Victoria Denault

5 STARS

Release Date: February 15, 2021

SYNOPSIS: What if Romeo wore hockey skates, and Juliet was raised on a farm next door?
As a life-long Vermonter, there are three beliefs I’ve always held true:
1. Our family farm is everything
2. Hockey is a close second
3. The Todds next door are our sworn enemies

But this season will test everything I stand for.  I have an illicit side job that could cost me my hockey scholarship. And now Maggie Todd knows my secret. She’s waiting for the right moment to use it against me. But every time I face off against her, I learn things I shouldn’t want to know. Like how deeply her competitive streak runs, and how sexy that is. And how easy it is to make her blush… everywhere. An Adler and a Todd cannot be lovers. Breaking that rule is like pulling a pin on a grenade–everything in my life could blow up. Can we surrender to these feelings… or will our families’ feud make us its next casualty?


This is book 1 in the new Moo U series that takes place
in Sarina Bowen’s True North World!


REVIEW: I first discovered Victoria Denault from her San Francisco Thunder Series which I sincerely loved. I’ve also read almost every Sarina Bowen book including the True North series, which is the world where this book takes place. Obviously when I saw that Victoria Denault was writing in this world, I knew I had to have it. Were my expectations super high for this one? Yes! Did I completely and utterly hype this book up in my head? Yes, again. Did this book meet all of those expectations and all the hype? You better believe it!

This enemies-to-lovers, Romeo and Juliet type story hit the spot. I loved every moment, from seeing Magnolia and Tate interact as enemies in the beginning, as well as falling for each other throughout the story. While falling, they’re also questioning the family feud that started before they were even born. There are so many layers to what’s going on, because it’s not just them and their relationship. It’s college, their families, and the success of their farms. This book touches on what the next generation can bring when the older generation is willing to work with them. It touches on some really valid biases that people in the older generation can carry and how that impacts progress. I really enjoyed seeing Magnolia and her sister Daisy work together to figure out what they could do to help the farm that wasn’t doing so well. Overall, I just really love this book. I’m really looking forward to seeing what the other authors do with the other hockey players that were Tate’s friends in this world!

Victoria Denault

Victoria’s love of books began at 12 when she picked up her first Sweet Valley High and grew from there. Her favorite childhood gift remains the 1930s typewriter her parents found at a garage sale which actually wasn’t a gift for her. It was meant to be a display piece in their front hall but Victoria snuck it into her bedroom and it was on that typewriter she first began pounding out her own stories.

When not writing books Victoria can usually be found on a beach somewhere. Her favorite beaches are La Concha in San Sebastian, Spain, Zuma Beach in Malibu California and Ocean Park, Maine.

Straight Up by Charity Ferrell

4.5 STARS

Release Date: Febuary 2, 2020

SYNOPSIS: Lincoln: I went from a penthouse to sleeping in a prison cell. From the VP of a million-dollar empire to a felon. All for a crime I didn’t commit. Now that I’m free, I vow to stay out of trouble. The only problem? She’s trouble wrapped in a bow.
Cassidy: My type? Bad boys. Until my bad boy boyfriend got me arrested. I’ve moved to a new town and sworn off relationships. Until I meet him … my Prince Charming … fresh out of prison.
Trouble and bad boys never felt so good … until it all falls apart.


This is Book 3 in the Twisted Fox Series!


REVIEW: I am just loving this series of interconnected standalones! And it’s so much fun to see the characters from the Blue Beech series popping up in this world as well. When I got see Cassidy meet Lincoln in the previous book I loved her attitude towards him. I could not wait to see how she pursued him and how they would feel about each other. They both have messy pasts, but I think it was perfect, like they were meant to be together. Cassidy is a force not to be reckoned with, which kind of reminds me of her sister Sierra from Just Roommates in the Blue Beech series. And Lincoln is totally swoon worthy! The way he is with Cassidy throughout the whole book makes him a total book boyfriend. I also like that he was the voice of reason for his brother, Archer, in the previous book. He’s got a great perspective and it really showed up a lot in his actions throughout his own story. Really, I just loved both of these two and I am glad we got their story. I think that book one, Stirred, will always be my favorite, BUT I am sincerely looking forward to book four, Chaser, with the teaser Charity Ferrell gave us at the end of this book.
