Roping Melanie by Melissa Ellen

4 STARS

Release Date: July 27, 2021

SYNOPSIS: I didn’t have a lot, but what I had I was proud of. I was raised to keep my head down and work hard. I followed the rules, rarely straying off the straight and narrow path. That’s why when the opportunity to get wild and have a little fun presented itself, I jumped on it—or more like on him. The handsome cowboy from the bar. It was one night in Vegas. Afterward, all I had was the memory of his body pressed to mine and the hotel room key I swiped as I snuck out. I never expected to see him again. I definitely never imagined he’d show up in my small hometown seven years later, only to discover the daughter he never knew about.


REVIEW: I found Melissa Ellen with the last book in this series, Tempting Tim, which I seriously enjoyed. When I saw this one was a single mom and small town romance, I knew I would be interested. Then I found out that they have a one-night stand, that leaves Melanie with a secret baby!? Yes, sign me up! And I really did enjoy this author’s story of Nash and Melanie. I enjoyed seeing them navigate the family dynamics seven years later. I mean what a surprise for Nash when he walked in that bar. I definitely would recommend this entire series!

ABOUT MELISSA

I’m an indie author that focuses on contemporary romance with a little bit of everything: humor, angst and sometimes suspense. A Reason To Stay, book one of the Blackwood Series, was my debut novel.

I grew up as a book worm, reading anything and everything and still try to read at least a book a week. I’ve always had an active imagination. Luckily, I now have time to put it to good use writing about characters that are constantly swarming around in my head.

I went from designing buildings to crafting stories. I’m a creative entrepreneur and coffee connoisseur.

Each story guarantees cuteness, sexiness, lots of love, and of course a HEA.

REVIEW: The thing about anthologies like this is that when they’re all the same trope, and you love the trope, you know you’re going to enjoy all of the stories! On top of that, you get to discover new authors who write that trope, or revisit the worlds of your favorite authors. I had so much fun reading this book! When I first read Rebecca Jenshak’s story, it just made me so happy to be back in her Smart Jock’s world. Seeing the characters that I loved from that series as side characters, had me completely invested. All of these authors brought their own style to this trope and I really enjoyed seeing how they would write it. I definitely recommend this one to my fellow romance readers.

Lies & Lullabies by Sarina Bowen

3.5 STARS

Release Date: September 22, 2020

SYNOPSIS: Once upon a time, he gave me a summer of friendship, followed by one perfect night. We shared a lot during our short time together. But he skipped a few crucial details.

I didn’t know he was a rock star.

I didn’t know his real name.

Neither of us knew I’d get pregnant.

And I sure never expected to see him again.

Five years later, his tour bus pulls up in Nest Lake, Maine. My little world is about to be shattered by loud music and the pounding of my own foolish heart.


REVIEW: As an avid Sarina Bowen fan, I was very excited for this one! I know that Sarina was a little nervous about writing a book with the secret baby trope, which is completely understandable because it is a hard one to write. The main thing is that the reasons for why the baby was a secret have to be justifiable. Unfortunately, I don’t think Keira’s reason were. The story starts off great. I was intrigued at Jonas coming back to the small town where he met Keira and found soem peace. I also really enjoyed that they spent the summer as friends and learning about the hardships Kiera experienced before they met. Then it just kind of went downhill from there for me. I didn’t really enjoy the book until over halfway through. It was hard for me because while I liked past Keira, I didn’t really like present Keira or how she handled things. Her reasons just seemed a little selfish. Something I did like about this story, is that we got her brother Adam’s perspective in parts of the book. He took her in when she got pregnant, so it was kind of neat to see that third-party weigh in on what was going on. Knowing the thoughts of the man who played the male role model for the first four years of Vivi’s life, was helpful.

Jonas was a good character and I really liked his relationship with Ethan, their tour manager. Ethan has this conversation with Jonas about friendship and how he treats people around him, which gives you a lot of insight into him as a character. Although Jonas definitely was not innocent in the demise of his and Keira’s chance at HEA, I don’t feel like it was as blatant as Keira’s. Which is probably why I liked him more throughout the story. I also was a little bummed about how Quinn reacted to Keira and I’m interested to see her story in Riffs and Refrains!

Overall, I’m really interested in the Hush Notes band members and what is going to happen to each of them. I’m looking forward to the rest of the series and I thin anyone who loves some rockstar romance should definitely check them out.


Meet the rest of the band!

Lies & Lullabies is part of a 3-part, 3-author series! And they’re releasing one week apart, so you don’t have to wait long for books 2 and 3! They’re all available on Amazon, Apple, Nook, Kobo… and more!

Tattered by Devney Perry

5 Stars!!!

Release Date: June 19, 2018

Synopsis: Thea Landry has always known her place in modern-day society. It’s somewhere just above the trash can her mother dumped her in as a newborn but below the class where much comes easy. With her tattered shoes and bargain-bin clothes, her life has never been full of glamour. So when a rich and charismatic man takes interest, she doesn’t fool herself into thinking their encounter is anything more than a one-night stand. Months later, she’s kicking herself for not getting his phone number. Or his last name. She’s given up hope of seeing him ever again. Until one day, years later, Logan Kendrick waltzes into her life once more and turns everything she’s built upside down. This time around, she won’t make the same mistake. She’s going to fight to keep him in her life—not for herself. But for their daughter.


He chuckled. “What about whisky?” “I don’t drink whisky.” “Hmm.” He took a long, slow sip from his glass, then set it down. “That’s a shame. A beautiful woman drinking whisky is my weakness.”


Review: Oh, I love, love, loved this one! Thea is such a great female lead, with a tragic backstory and so much strength. I feel like everything she went through and the family she has formed in Lark Cove added so much to her as a character. I was just so invested in her HEA and I was utterly in love with her as a character. And then there is Logan. Charming, attractive, and just in town for a night. BUT WAIT, he’s back. And of course he’s thought of our heroine over the years and thinks he may just need to find her while he’s in town. Well, he doesn’t just find her. The growth of Logan over this story is riddled with mistakes, but so satisfying as he learns. I wanted to smack him and hug him, which made him a great male lead. This book had me totally enthralled from start to finish. Let’s just say I binged this whole series after reading this one!
