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!

Wright with Benefits by K.A. Linde

5 STARS

Release Date: April 26, 2021

SYNOPSIS: I shouldn’t have hooked up with my one night stand… again. To be fair, I was having the worst day of my life. I was sure that nothing else could go wrong.
Then in walks Jordan Wright.

We have a heated history, and I’ve been avoiding him. Not least of all because he’s a hundred percent my type with those big brown eyes, a ripped body, and his blisteringly broody charm. I said I’d never go near him again. But he’s there for me when I need him. And well, old habits die hard.

Only problem?
I’m leaving in a matter of months, and nothing is going to change my mind.
Maybe in the meantime, I can still have my Wright…with benefits.


REVIEW: These new contemporary romances from K.A. Linde in the Wright series are so adorable! She revisited the series with A Wright Christmas at the end of last year and it was too cute. It made me excited for more stories in the Wright world! Annie and Jordan had such a good journey. I think what I liked about them most was their instant connection from the beginning and how that played out over the years. The back stories and hangups also made it pretty interesting. The story was lighter on the drama, which was so nice! Things definitely happen to make the story move along, but it wasn’t so over the top that I was frustrated with any of the characters. It was just enough to cause a little heartbreak and a whole lot of happy. In other words, this story just made me smile! And it was so fun seeing all the side characters. Plus, two of those side characters will be getting their own book in July: Serves Me Wright! All of the stuff that happened in this book with Julian and his girlfriend. The little glimpses we got to see of Jennifer and her personality. I am beyond excited to see what happens to them, so I’m counting down the days until July 20th!

Southern Heart by Natasha Madison

4 STARS!

Release Date: March 6, 2021

SYNOPSIS: Some secrets have a way of coming back and haunting us, no matter how much we try to bury them.
Chelsea – Coming back home was supposed to be normal. Not that my life had ever been normal, but it was getting there. Then I opened the door and found a man—broken, bloodied, and fighting for his life. I don’t know why, but I said I would take care of him. I had to. Needed to. He was a mystery, showing up from out of nowhere. But he might have already stolen my heart.
Mayson Carey –
The only thing I have ever wanted in my entire life was to forget who I was. Joining the military helped me do this. Keep your head down and glide through life was my new motto. No strings, no relationships. Nothing. Everything was working until a knock at the door had me face-to-face with the reason I was running. So I ran—I fell into her arms, and she fell into my heart, but I know better than to think it’ll last.
Some secrets have a way of coming back and haunting us, no matter how much we try to bury them.

REVIEW: This was exactly what I expected from a Natasha Madison romantic suspense. An instant and strong connection between the characters and lots of drama! This family has fascinated me throughout all of the books, and it’s really awesome to see the kids get their stories told. I do enjoy the connection between Chelsea‘s relationship and her mother Savannah’s relationship. This series also addresses the impact of family on our relationships and how people view us. I always enjoy seeing that play out. I’m always entertained the strong women in this series and the alpha men that fall for them. Mayson is so endearing, especially as you find out more about him. I do love a tortured male lead. And how Chelsea sees what’s most important about him as a person is just the best. She does something really dumb, and it made me want to reach in the book and smack her, but other than that this was a fun read!

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!

Holding You Close by Kennedy Fox

4 STARS!

Release Date: March 16, 2021

SYNOPSIS: After serving a decade long prison sentence for an accident that resulted in my husband’s death, Noah Reid returns. Even if he was my childhood best friend and the first man I secretly loved, I refuse to make it easy for him. But the heart never forgets and those old repressed feelings quickly bubble to the surface. Loving him is a dangerous game but one I’m willing to play. Flirting leads to falling between the sheets, and I’m forced to deal with the guilt of what we’re doing. Viciousness towards Noah runs rampant and while revenge trickles through the streets of Lawton Ridge, I realize there’s more on the line than just my heart. While I’m afraid that my son and I will be caught in the crossfire of those who want to hurt Noah, I can’t walk away. Secrets are revealed and revelations are made, but losing him again isn’t an option—especially since I’m pregnant.


HOLDING YOU AWAY is a slow burn, angsty friends to lovers romance with lots of small-town, Southern drama.
It’s book 2 in the Noah & Katie duet and must be read in order.

Check out Book 1: Pushing You Away here!


IF YOU LOVE:
✔️Childhood friends… to enemies…to more?
✔️Single parent
✔️Small-town drama
✔️Suspense
✔️Hero redemption


REVIEW: After that cliffhanger, I was so ready for this one. I have been so curious about both Katie and Noah since we got hints about their situation during Tyler and Gemma’s Duet. I knew they’d have a rocky ride! I kind of guessed a lot of what was going to happen, but I was still interested to see what Kennedy Fox was going to do with this one. They definitely did some great foreshadowing in this one and gave us a lot of the aftermath of all the craziness. It was nice to see how these two adapted to all of the things against them after the dust had settled. In true Kennedy Fox fashion, there was the drama, they were steamy times, and there were the awesome friendships. I do love this crazy interconnected group of friends, that’s for sure. Oh, and of course we got little snippets of what Everleigh will be dealing with in her duet with Archer, and man, I do not think I’m ready for the wildness that is her.

Second Chance at Us by Stacy Travis

3 STARS

Release Date: March 3, 2021

SYNOPSIS: In high school, I was the bubbly cheerleader and he was the quiet debate guy I didn’t even know existed. But Blake Fulton made me believe in love after just one day. Two weeks after my dad died, I was spiraling out of control and my friends had gone AWOL. Blake had never spoken to me before, but suddenly he was there. We ditched school, he bought me a burger, he made me laugh. And he kissed me better than any of those football guys ever did. Then he ghosted me and broke my heart. Fifteen years later, he’s back in my life. He wants to apologize and explain. He wants to prove he’s a better man now. All I want is to resist. But there’s something about him… the way his gorgeous gray eyes see me like I’m the only woman in the room, the way he ignites a fire that burns only for him, the way he knows what I need even before I do. I could fall for him all over again. I’ve never believed in second chances. Will he be the one to change my mind?


Second Chance At Us, an all-new enemies-to-lovers romance from Stacy Travis is available now! 


REVIEW: I am a big fan of second chance romances, but there always has to be a good reason for why the first time didn’t work out–which this one had, especially considering they were teenagers. I think what I liked about the story was getting to know Becca and Blake. From their losses in high school, to seeing how they’ve lived ever since, both of these characters have a lot of depth. I would say about 3/4 of the way through the story I definitely wanted them to have a happy ever after! In the beginning, there’s a lot of inner monologue, which kind of lost my interest after a while. The situation that Becca thinks Blake is in when they meet again, plus the inner monologue, just made me a little impatient to move it all along. It just felt really negative in the beginning. Luckily, it didn’t stay that way! The last third of the book was enjoyable and I appreciated the HEA.

Stacy Travis

It’s a rough world out there, and we all sometimes need a good, romantic beach read, even if we can’t make it to the beach. I’ve spent many lazy days walking the streets of Paris and other gorgeous European cities, and if I’m doing it right, I’m bringing you a dash of romance and a vacay fantasy.  I can’t sit still, so when I’m not hiking, biking or running, I’m playing a very average game of tennis. Background music for writing undoubtedly features some U2, Lizzo, Billy Joel, Pink, Taylor Swift, and Led Zeppelin. Not necessarily in that order. And if I could only eat one food group, it would be cheese. Or wine. Or bread. Are those food groups? Whatever.

Dotted Lines by Devney Perry

5 STARS

Release Date: March 2, 2021

SYNOPSIS: Clara Saint-James is completing a journey started by an old friend. She’ll return a Cadillac to California, a place she’s avoided for more than a decade. But it’s time for closure and to put old ghosts to rest. And it’s time to find out if the feelings she’s cherished for the boy from her past are just fanciful memories–or if there’s a chance they are real. Timing was never on her side, especially when it came to Karson Avery. The two of them lived in a junkyard as runaway teens, and though she wanted more than his friendship, he always belonged to another–until that one night when he was hers. When Clara finds Karson living in a small, coastal town, she’s not surprised the beautiful boy from her past grew into a stunning man. His smile is as captivating as ever. His eyes have the same roguish glint. But timing is still working against her. Clara must decide how far she’s willing to go to battle for Karson’s heart. Or if it’s time to let him go and surrender to the dotted lines that have always kept them apart.


Dotted Lines is the last conclusion to the AMAZING Runaway Series!


REVIEW: WOW! What a perfect end to a touching series that will always hold a special place in my heart. I don’t have words to accurately describe how much I love this series. It seriously touched something in my soul. I loved every story and each characters connection to one another. They are all survivors at their core, and I think that has made me so invested in each and everyone of these characters. Getting all the women’s stories has been such a joy, and it had left me with a growing curiosity about Karson throughout each book. Who was the boy that lived with all of them in the Junkyard. What was his story? Well, finally getting it was beyond statisfying. I didn’t know how I’d feel about Clara’s crush with the history between Karson and Londyn, but Devney Perry did such a wonderful job of introducing Karson and Clara’s past story, I was all in. It was so endearing and even though it didn’t work out when Clara turned 18, I was definitely rooting for their second chance.

Clara is such a great character! I enjoyed seeing her in Aria’s story, Forsaken Trail, including her friendship with Brody. She’s been through so much and is a wonderful single mom. Her story definitely pulls at the heart strings and I cried, a lot. Her struggles with the past and present hit deep and made me tear up. She is so strong because she’s had to be ever since her parent died. I just admire her as a character. Getting Karson’s backstory and then his thought process of why he didn’t go with Aria when they left the junkyard, was both heartbreaking and endearing. I just wanted these two together so bad!

AND THAT EPILOGUE! Dear lord, I was crying all the happy tears. I was smiling with tears streaming down my face and I loved every minute of it. I sincerely recommend this entire series and I will definitely be doing a reread at some point.

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.

Second Dive by Jasmine Miller

4.5 STARS

Release Date: December 10, 2020

SYNOPSIS: Noah Winters was my heart’s desire, the boy I loved desperately and had hoped to spend my future with. Until our plans were derailed and life took us in completely different directions. When our fate changed, and our paths crossed again, nothing prepared me for the punch straight to the heart when I saw him . . . or his anger and bitterness. He was no longer the boy I once knew, but an accomplished Olympic swimmer with life goals that no longer aligned with mine. All because I lied.
But sometimes, hiding the truth was necessary, especially when it freed someone you loved to reach their aspirations and dreams. It’s said that time heals all wounds, but what I found was that it can also create an enemy. That meant I had a choice. Apologize to Noah, and possibly let him into my heart again . . . or allow him to live his life without knowing why I walked away. Without knowing that I never actually wanted to leave.


REVIEW: I’ve been enjoying this series, and it definitely has its twists and turns, but WOW, I was not ready for this one. The emotions are real and I didn’t see it coming. And when I say emotions, I mean I felt multiple scenes deep in my bones. Chloe was a wonderful female character, and so very inspirational. Noah is so rough and broody in the beginning, so seeing him open up was so fulfilling. And the chemistry between theses two was HOT. I mean, this book just gave me a spectrum of emotions and I was here for it. I would definitely recommend this series.

The Do-Over by Piper Rayne

5 STARS!

Release Date: December 1, 2020

SYNOPSIS: She was always the one. Or so I thought. Turns out my instincts were dead wrong. Years ago I was faced with the choice between two women. Both were perfect in opposite ways. One was carefree and against commitment. The other was a woman you’d bring home to mom.  I was young, naïve and stupid. I’m sure you can guess who I chose.  Now, I’m older, wiser and know what the hell I want.  So, when the same two women pop back into my life it’s my chance for a do-over. But they flipped the script. Just like me, they want different things now. Leaving me with one choice—convince the woman I want that she wants me too.

REVIEW: I did not go into this book feeling like I knew what was going to happen. From what we’ve seen of Knox and Leilani in the previous Rooftop Crew Series, I had no idea what their relationship really entailed. Knox keeps it close to the vest so you don’t really get to know him that well in the previous books, but this book ended up being more than I could have imagined! I love where Piper Rayne took this. Both of the characters were fantastic and seeing them come together, despite the other things that are they’re dealing with, was so satisfying. Their past experiences in life have definitely left a mark and are impacting what they’ve been going through as adults. There was just a lot of depth and I really loved getting to know Knox!

As always the Rooftop Crew always brings such a fun and happy element to the books. They’re just such a strong group of friends that support each other, are super kind, and are just trying to do the best for themselves in life. I love how the women in this group get together and support each other. They are the female friends we all wish we had. They’ve had some struggles, but they own them and persevere. They are working hard to go after their dreams and I love it. Next up is Jax and Frankie, and with her daughter Jolie’s Christmas wish to Santa at the end of this book, we all know it’s going to be a great story. I cannot wait to get into Jax’s mind!!

Thank you to Piper Rayne and Wildfire Marketing Solutions for the eARC in exchange for an honest review!
