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.

Thank you so much to Corinne Michaels and Valentine PR for the ARC in exchange for an honest review!

Rachel, Out of Office by Christina Hovland

4 STARS

Release Date: January 25, 2021

SYNOPSIS: Out of reach, out of touch, out of her mind. Single mom, Rachel Gibson seriously needs a break. Between an absent ex-husband, rowdy twin boys, managing the PTA, and running her own business, her candle isn’t burning at both ends, it’s a full-blown puddle of wax. She’s the go-to girl for other entrepreneurs, handling all the tasks they dread. Social media posts? She’s got it. Website updates? She’s on it. Light bookkeeping? Oh, yes. Thank goodness she’s about to get a reprieve when her in-laws plan to whisk her boys away for a summer of fun at the family lake house. But when her ex backs out of the family retreat, and her former inlaws insist she attend their yearly vacation summit with her munchkins, she finds herself in a pickle. Even though she’s drowning in to-dos, she’s horrible at saying no — especially when it comes to her kids Once Rachel arrives at the lake house, she struggles to keep up with work and balance the demands of family all the while fending off pesky new feelings about her ex-brother-in-law. Which makes her start to wonder… Is falling for her ex-husband’s brother just one more messy complication added to the dumpster fire?  Or is anything possible when she’s out of office…


An adorable romantic momedy!


REVIEW: This was super cute! The characters were very realistic, which made all the different relationship dynamics so relatable. It was great to see the characters interact in all the situations that came up. I’m a huge fan of forbidden romances like these, where some people don’t think they should be together, but they would really make each other happy. Travis is so much more than Rachel knows of him (which consists mostly of what her ex Gavin, Travis’ brother, told her). I really felt Travis proved himself again and again. Rachel kind of drove me crazy, because she’s trying to be the strong independent woman that does it all. I can totally respect that, but everyone needs help! I just liked seeing these characters grow and find the way they fit together. The angst and chemistry definitely made this an entertaining read!

A Co-Worker’s Crush By Piper Rayne


The final book
in the Rooftop Crew series!  


5 STARS

Release Date: January 5, 2021

SYNOPSIS: Three tattoo guns. Five motorcycle tires. Countless T-shirts. That’s what I lost before I realized nothing good comes from dating my co-workers.  Usually, I don’t have much self-control. So, the fact that Frankie Grant is a hot, talented tattoo artist means it’s a damn miracle she hasn’t already been in my bed. But nothing can happen between us because Frankie comes with Jolie, her young daughter, and a crap load of baggage from her ex. And those are two things I never entertain. Anyone who knows me—the screwed up foster kid from the wrong side of the tracks—knows I’m not the guy you take home to meet your parents, let alone your kid. But I also know what it’s like not to have parents, so things get complicated when Jolie asks me to be her daddy. I might as well just slash my own tires now.


Review: What a perfect ending to the Rooftop Crew series. When readers first got a glimpse of Jax in the Rival Roomies, which happens to be one of my favorites, he almost stole the show from Rian and Dylan! I just knew his HEA was going to be a good story. It was really amazing to see him and Frankie during this one, especially because of the build up in previous books. There’s something really heartwarming about people that have been through really difficult times finding support and care from the people around them. The whole Rooftop Crew takes Frankie and Jolie in, just like they did with Jax when he first appeared on the scene. It’s just a really great group of friends that’s so supporting and loving. I think that is what makes this whole series! The whole crew is just so much fun–even when they mess up, they’re all trying to support each other and push each other in the best way.

One thing I really appreciated about this book specifically is that although both characters have definitely dealt with some trauma, and it’s impacted who they are as adults, there wasn’t a huge overdramatic scene. A lot of times in these types of books, I’m waiting for some huge ridiculous misunderstanding that is going to make me irritated, but that really didn’t happen with this one. It was the perfect amount of mistakes and growth for each character. They’re both just navigating what life has thrown at them, and when things happens towards the ends with Jax, it’s very realistic. The way he handles it all, I admired it, and that’s what makes me really happy. The lack of super-over-the-top drama is what made the story so much better it. It was just very true to the characters and how they’ve grown.

If you can’t tell I’ve absolutely love this series! I tend to love Piper Rayne books in general, but this series just got me! I think it’s just the support that the group offers each other that really won me over. I’m definitely looking forward to Piper Rayne’s Hockey Hotties series and I’m pretty sure we met one of the characters in this book–Frankie‘s cousin Aiden, but we shall see!

Stay for Me by Corinne Michaels

4.5 STARS

Release Date: December 8, 2020

SYNOPSIS: Hollywood taught me everything I know about relationships–except how to be in one. As an actor, I became an expert at faking it. Faking that I wasn’t affected by my childhood. Faking that I was okay. Faking that I knew how to save the day, the girl, the whole damn world. But I’ve always known the truth–I’m no one’s hero. Until I’m forced to move back to Sugarloaf for six months, and Brenna Allen offers me a chance to prove otherwise. She’s everything I never knew I wanted, but can’t have. Her broken heart, perfect face, and adorable children turn my world upside down. Instead of preparing for my next leading role, I’m directing a middle school play. All to make her smile. The more time I spend here, the more I want to stay. Build a life in this town that I swore I’d leave–for her. But when the world comes crashing down around us, I’m forced to decide if staying for her is the right choice or if leaving is better for the woman I love.

REVIEW: Wow. This series was a wild ride and I am so glad I was on it! The Arrowood Brothers are absolutely delicious with so much depth from everything they have experienced. As per usual, Corinne Michaels broke me a little with these characters. Brenna’s backstory just gripped my heart. I wanted Jacob and Brenna to get their HEA so badly! And Sebastian added so much to the story. I would definitely recommend this one. I don’t want to spoil anything, but you should definitely read this one if you are looking for an angsty story, with sweet moments and all the feels!

Playing with Trouble by Amy Andrews

4 Stars

Release Date: November 30, 2020

SYNOPSIS: From pro rugby player to…Manny? Australian rugby pro Cole Hauser has had enough of speculations about his future post-injury. So when a football buddy puts his house in America at Cole’s disposal, he jumps at the chance for some peace and anonymity. The plan is perfect–until he discovers he’s roomies with a woman who knows how to wield a nail gun and her kid. Awesome. Not. Single mom Jane Spencer is supposed to be spending four weeks alone in the wilds of Colorado rehabbing a house that’ll put her business on the map. Instead, her time is overrun by her four-year-old and a grumpy, too-sexy rugby dude whose only goals are to watch ESPN and brood.

Awesome. Not.

When, surprisingly, McHottie offers to get his ass off the couch and help Jane out with Finn, she’s hesitant. But before she knows it, Cole is knee-deep in kid activities during the day and they’re both fighting their simmering attraction at night. Anything between them can only be temporary – their time together is short and Cole lives on the other side of the planet. It should be easy to say goodbye, right? Wrong. It doesn’t take long for them to realize they’ve borrowed a whole lot of trouble. But trouble never felt this good. 


REVIEW: I knew I was going to really like this one! The way Cole interacts with Finn, despite his brooding is just so heart warming. I also love the small town side characters in this one–Arlo specifically, and how he includes Cole. I appreciate Jane as a strong, female character who has to work to prove herself in a mostly male driven career. It adds some spunk to her that has her overreacting, but it makes for some good banter. And when Cole meet each of her challenges, I just liked him even more. I would definitely recommend this one!

A Wright Christmas by K.A. Linde

5 STARS

Release Date: November 17, 2020

SYNOPSIS: At seventeen, I left Isaac Donoghue behind to become a professional ballerina. When I return home to dance in the Nutcracker, I never expect to run into him. Let alone on my first day in town. I can’t help but admire him in a crisp suit with his toned soccer body, chiseled jawline, and all too familiar piercing green eyes. I thought nothing could surprise me more.
 
Until his five year old daughter runs out of the ballet studio. I’m only in town for a month. I shouldn’t get involved with anyone, especially the ex I’ve been pining after for years. Especially now that he’s a single dad with a daughter to consider. But where Isaac is concerned, I’ve never been able to stay away. With the help of some Christmas magic, maybe we finally have a shot at our second chance.

REVIEW: This book was exactly what I needed right now! The story was sweet with a little bit of angst and a whole lot of love. I’m a sucker for a single parent romance, but there is just something special about a single-parent second-chance romance. I loved the connection between Isaac and Peyton and watching it grow throughout the story. I also appreciated how Isaac supported Peyton in the pursuit of her dreams when they were teenagers. He is definitely book boyfriend material, and his daughter Peyton is adorable. The added element of him having a daughter that loves dancing, so she was able to connect with Peyton about that added so much to the relationship. For any Seasons Series readers, it was fun to get a little glimpse of Katherine and Camden in this book! Honestly, this book just left me feeling warm and fuzzy. What Else could you want from a holiday romance?

Only One Kiss by Natasha Madison

4.5 STARS

Release Date: September 1, 2020

SYNOPSIS: Ralph – Being traded to Dallas was a dream come true. I had everything I wanted, my game had never been better, and my wife was due to have our baby any day now. What could go wrong? Everything. I was now raising our baby on my own. After hockey practice and games, I didn’t have time to sleep, let alone make sure my social media was up to par. I never thought I’d get a second chance at love.
Candace – When my hotshot brother was drafted in the NHL, he didn’t have time to do his social media, so I took over for him. Little did I know it would become my career. My plate was full with over fifty NHL players, and I wasn’t taking on any new clients. Yet when he showed up on my doorstep with the cutest little girl in the whole world, I couldn’t say no. I was just helping, but it turned into more than that. He’s the man I’ve been waiting for. All it takes is one touch, one night, one chance, and only one kiss.


REVIEW: Brand new single dad and Hockey player, yep sign me right up for this one. I so enjoyed reading this and experiencing the connection between Candice and Ralph. Ralph’s back story was everything, and the relationship with the diseased mother of his child was so layered and added so much to the story. Candice’s interactions with her niece and Ralph’s daughter are so precious! She is such a great female lead. Of course the other shoe drops, but what kind of story would it be without a little drama. I’m looking forward to reading this whole series!

TBR: The Anti-Boyfriend by Penelope Ward

Release Date: August 31, 2020

SYNOPSIS

At first, my neighbor Deacon frustrated me.

Sure, he was great-looking and friendly.

But our walls were thin, and on occasion, he’d bring women to his place and keep me awake while he “entertained” them.

As a single mother to an infant, I didn’t appreciate it.

So, finally it was my turn.

When my daughter wouldn’t stop wailing one night, Mr. Manwhore came knocking on my door.

Miraculously, at the sound of his voice, Sunny stopped crying. And when he held her…she eventually fell asleep in his arms.

Deacon was rough on the exterior, but apparently on the inside? Mr. Single-and-Ready-to-Mingle was a baby whisperer.

After that night, we became friends.

He’d go for coffee runs. Come over to chat. Normal friend stuff.

But over time, our conversations ran deeper. We got closer.

Until one night we crossed the line.

Our friendship turned into a complicated mess.

I’d gone and fallen for a guy who’d sworn off commitment and kids.

I knew Deacon was starting to care for me too, even though Sunny and I didn’t fit into any plan he’d ever imagined for himself.

He was wrong for me—so wrong that I’d dubbed him the “anti-boyfriend.”

Then why did I wish more than anything that I could be the one woman to change him?

A Cowboy for Keeps by Laura Drake

4 STARS!

Release Date: July 28, 2020

SYNOPSIS: There’s not much that could rattle a cowboy like Reese St. James. But when his twin brother dies in a car accident, Reese is stunned to discover he has a six-month old niece, Sawyer. Wanting to make up for lost time, Reese heads down to Unforgiven, New Mexico, to bring her home. He doesn’t plan on Sawyer’s guardian giving him any trouble, but the intriguing, independent woman is turning out to be more than he bargained for.

Lorelei West had given up hope of having a family of her own until her sister’s tragic death brought little Sawyer into her life. And now there’s no way she’s going to let Reese take her away. Lorelei knows hotshot, good-looking cowboys like him — she’s dated enough of them — and she intends to stand her ground. Yet the more time Reese and Lorelei spend together, the harder it is to deny the attraction building between them. But opening their hearts to a baby is one thing — can they also open their hearts to the possibility of a happily-ever-after?

REVIEW: New book boyfriend alert! Reese’s insecurities gave him a soft side that pulled me right in. His interactions with his niece, Sawyer, tugged at all my heartstrings! And then there is the way that Reese pursues Lorelei. Swoon. Seriously, I loved all the moments of their interactions. Lorelei’s insecurities definitely rule her life, to a point I wanted to yell at her at times. Because of this, I enjoyed seeing her growth throughout the story. I think both of their love for Sawyer despite the complicated relationships they had with their siblings, was just so wonderful. This is just a heartwarming story and I would definitely recommend it!!

Release Date: October 30, 2018

Publisher: Forever

SYNOPSIS: Who’s afraid of the big, bad cowboy? After one too many heartbreaks, Travis Blake hung up his cowboy hat and put Big Verde, Texas, behind him. But when he gets the call that his young nephew needs him, he knows he has to return home. His plan is to sell the family ranch and hightail it back to Austin, but there’s a small problem: the one person who stands in his way is the one person he can’t resist.

Maggie is pretty sure she hates Travis Blake. He’s irritating, he’s destroying her business, and . . . and he’s just so frickin’ attractive. But when they’re forced to work together, Maggie discovers that the Most Annoying Man in the World is more than he seems. He’s sweet with his nephew, he helps out in the community, and he makes her heart flutter. Maggie doesn’t want to risk everything on a man who wants to leave, but what if she can convince this wayward cowboy to stay?

REVIEW: Between the enemies-to-lovers vibe and Travis heading home to take care of his nephew, I knew I had to pick this one up. I thought I knew what I was getting myself into, but I was wrong! This book was way more than I thought it would be and I loved it! Seriously, the whole situation in the beginning is steamy and ridiculous in the best way. I loved seeing how the story progressed. Travis and Henry’s relationship had so much growth and was damn adorable. Plus, I kind of loved the way him and Maggie interacted. I just love every little part of this book and would definitely recommend it!
