Here With Me by Samantha Young

4.5 STARS

Release Date: May 11, 2021

SYNOPSIS: Settled in the tranquil remoteness of the Scottish Highlands, Ardnoch Estate caters to the rich and famous. It is as unattainable and as mysterious as its owner —ex-Hollywood leading man Lachlan Adair—and it’s poised on the edge of a dark scandal. After narrowly escaping death, police officer Robyn Penhaligon leaves behind her life in Boston in search of some answers. Starting with Mac Galbraith, the Scottish father who abandoned her to pursue his career in private security. To re-connect with Mac, Robyn will finally meet a man she’s long resented. Lachlan Adair. Hostility instantly brews between Robyn and Lachlan. She thinks the head of the Adair family is high-handed and self-important. And finding closure with Mac is proving more difficult than she ever imagined. Robyn would sooner leave Ardnoch, but when she discovers Mac is embroiled in a threat against the Adairs and the exclusive members of the estate, she finds she’s not yet ready to give up on her father. Determined to ensure Mac’s safety, Robyn investigates the disturbing crimes at Ardnoch, forcing her and Lachlan to spend time together. Soon it becomes clear a searing attraction exists beneath their animosity, and temptation leads them down a perilous path. While they discover they are connected by something far more addictive than passion, Lachlan cannot let go of his grip on a painful past: a past that will destroy his future … if the insidious presence of an enemy lurking in the shadows of Ardnoch doesn’t do the job first. 


Here With Me is Book 1 in the new Adair Family Series!


REVIEW: I loved the underlying plot of the story. I didn’t know exactly what was going to ensue, which doesn’t happen often. The romantic suspense part definitely kept me guessing! I do like how well Samantha Young writes these emotionally charged characters and scenes. There is so much depth to all of these characters. It was such a weird mix of people, but in a really good way. The fact that the characters are all fairly close in age, even though that includes a dad and a daughter, also played into the fact that the dynamics were not typical and added a lot to the story. The connections and friendships were just so interesting. The pace did seem a little slow to me, but I just think this book was a little on the longer side and I might not have been in the mood for that. There was more than one big thing that happened, so I kind of thought I was at the end of the book a few different times. Luckily, I did really enjoy what happened and I am sincerely looking forward to finding out what happens to the rest of the characters in the next books! Especially Robyn’s Dad!!

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!

Back in the Burbs by Avery Flynn & Tracy Wolff

4 STARS

Release Date: March 30, 2021

SYNOPSIS: Ever have one of those days where life just plain sucks? Welcome to my last three months–ever since I caught my can’t-be-soon-enough ex-husband cheating with his paralegal. I’m thirty-five years old, and I’ve lost my NYC apartment, my job, my money, and frankly, my dignity. But the final heartache in the suck sandwich of my life? My great-aunt Maggie died. The only family member who’s ever gotten me. Even after death, though, she’s helping me get back up. She’s willed me the keys to a house in the burbs, of all places, and dared me to grab life by the family jewels. Well, I’ve got the vise grips already in hand (my ex should take note) and I’m ready to fight for my life again. Too bad that bravado only lasts as long as it takes to drive into Huckleberry Hills. And see the house. There are forty-seven separate HOA violations, and I feel them all in my bones. Honestly, I’m surprised no one’s “accidentally” torched the house yet. I want to, and I’ve only been standing in front of it for five minutes. But then my hot, grumpy neighbor tells me to mow the lawn first and I’m just…done. Done with men too sexy for their own good and done with anyone telling me what to do. First rule of surviving the burbs? There is nothing that YouTube and a glass of wine can’t conquer.


Back in the Burbs is a hilarious enemies-to-lovers rom com!


REVIEW: Divorced, back at the parents, and in your thirties?! Yep, Mallory is on the hot mess express, and I loved every minute. I’m a huge Avery Flynn fan because she always makes me laugh out loud while reading, and this book was no exception. I enjoyed the journey Mallory went on after the bad hand life has dealt her. Cue Nick for all the swoony vibes. I wanted a little more romance, but if you like a story about a woman figuring it all out on her own, you’ll definitely like this one!

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!

Release Date: June 13, 2017

Blurb: Nothing good comes after the third date. Date three is the crucial point when things get real, which is exactly why I bounce out the door, twiddling my fingers at whatever poor boy I’ve left behind. Because if I stick around, one of three things will happen: he’ll profess his undying love, he’ll get weird and stalky, or I’ll go crazy. Like, Sid and Nancy crazy. Like, chase-him-through-the-streets-begging-him-to-love-me crazy. Seriously, it’s better for everyone this way. So when I meet Bodie, I figure it’ll be the same as it ever was. It doesn’t matter that he doesn’t put a single string on me. Doesn’t matter that he’s funny and smart and jacked or that he can play my body like a grand piano. Because even though I’m built for love, love has only carved me up like a Christmas ham. Resistance is something I can only hang on to for so long, and he has persistence in spades. But my heart isn’t as safe as I want to believe, and neither is his. And the second I ignore my cardinal rule is the second I stand to lose him forever. 

sTACI HART

She’s also been a mom to three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She’s been a wife, even though she’s certainly not the cleanest, nor is she the best cook. She’s also super, duper fun at a party–especially if she’s been drinking whiskey–and her favorite word starts with f and ends with k. From roots in Houston to a seven year stint in Southern California, Staci and her family ended up settling somewhere in between and equally north in Denver, where snow is magic and the mountains have become home. When she’s not writing, she’s reading, gaming, or designing graphics.

King: Homeless. Hungry. Desperate. Doe has no memories of who she is or where she comes from. A notorious career criminal just released from prison, King is someone you don’t want to cross unless you’re prepared to pay him back in blood, sweat, sex or a combination of all three. King’s future hangs in the balance. Doe’s is written in her past. When they come crashing together, they will have to learn that sometimes in order to hold on, you have to first let go.

Tyrant: I. Remember. Everything. But the relief I thought I would feel never comes, and I’m more afraid now than I was the morning I woke up handcuffed in King’s bed. Because with the truth comes dark secrets I was never meant to know. I will put the lives of those I love most at risk if I let on that my memory has returned, or if I seek help from the heavily tattooed felon who owns me body and soul. I don’t know if I’m strong enough to resist the magnetic pull toward King that grows stronger every day. He’s already saved me in more ways than one. Now it’s my turn to do whatever it takes to save him. Even if that means marrying someone else…

Now, she is a five-time USA Today bestselling author and her books have been translated into numerous languages and published all around the world. T.M. enjoys writing what she calls ‘wrong side of the tracks romance’ with morally corrupt anti-heroes and ballsy heroines. Her books have been described as raw, dark and gritty. Basically, what that means, is while some authors are great at describing a flower as it blooms, T.M. is better at describing it in the final stages of decay. She loves meeting her readers, but if you see her at an event please don’t pinch her because she’s not ready to wake up from this amazing dream.

Blurb: I’d dated his brother. He didn’t remember and I wish I could forget. I may have sworn off the Wright family a long time ago. But when I returned home, Jensen Wright crashed into my life with the confidence of a billionaire CEO and the sex appeal of a god. Even I couldn’t resist our charged chemistry, or the way he fit into my life like a missing puzzle piece. Too bad he’d forgotten the one thing that could destroy us. Because Jensen Wright doesn’t share. Not with anyone. And if his brother finds out, this could all go down in flames. When it all was said and done, was he the Wright brother?

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!

Desperate Times by Emily Goodwin

4 STARS

Release Date: November 17, 2020

SYNOPSIS: I fell in love with Chloe Fisher when we were only kids. I knew then, just like I know now, there will never be another woman in the world for me but her. A silly childhood pact to marry each other if we were still single and thirty kept us together…until I messed up, hurting the only woman I’ve ever truly cared about. I swore if I ever got a second chance, I would make things right, prove to Chloe I’ve changed, that I’m not the same guy who broke her heart years ago. History has a way of repeating itself, and now that Chloe is finally giving me what I’ve always wanted, I’m terrified that maybe Chloe will always be the one that got away. That maybe, just maybe, she’s entirely too good for me. I’ve never been one to give up, and I’ll keep fighting for her—for us, even though the universe is doing its very best to keep us apart. It’s true what they say: desperate times call for desperate measures. And I’m willing to do whatever it takes to make her mine.

REVIEW: I think the thing that most stood out to me in the series was Sam and Chloe’s love for each other! They’ve definitely had a rocky road and I think it just pushes them in a way that makes them appreciate each other. I also think that Chloe deserves the happiness that she gets. I love that she took her nerdiness, that she got bullied for, and turned it into something so successful! It’s just a really feel good story. Sam‘s family is wonderful, and I can’t wait to see more of them in the next few books of the Silver Ridge series. I am totally getting Dawson Family vibes and I loved that series so very much!

Backup Plan by Emily Goodwin

4 STARS

Release Date: August 24, 2020

SYNOPSIS: When we were only kids, Sam Harris and I made a promise we’d marry each other if we were still single when we turned thirty. Well, my thirtieth birthday has come and gone and I’m still as single as ever. And as far as I know, so is Sam. But it’s been ages since we’ve seen each other, and after what he did to me our senior year of college, I wouldn’t put his ring on my finger even if he begged me to marry him. Never mind his devilish good looks. Or the fact that the playboy partier is a doctor now.

Nope, I’m sticking to my guns with this, and when I go back to my hometown of Silver Ridge for the first time in years, I won’t pay him the slightest bit of attention. Well…until he convinces me to go out for drinks to catch up. I knew it was a bad idea the moment I agreed to it. And then he brings up our childhood promise. It might be fun and games to him, but it’s not to me. Because as much a I don’t want to admit it, Sam has always been my first choice. And I don’t want to be nothing more than his backup plan.


REVIEW: This book reminded me a lot of Cheat Codes/End Game, the duet that began the Dawson Family Series. I also didn’t know it was a duet when I signed up to review (I’m not a huge fan of duets)–I found the pacing slow, but I think that’s my aversion to duets. I think I would have loved it more if I could have finished the whole duet in one go. I had mixed feelings about Cheat Codes/End Game (because it was a duet), but by reading it I was setup to love the Dawson Family and all the books that followed. And LOVE them I did, especially Dean’s story, which is where we meet Sam the lead in this book (Dean ends up with Sam’s sister Rory). And we get guest appearances from Dean and Rory in Backup Plan!

Chloe was a character I could get behind. She’s a nerd, successful, yet utterly human. I enjoyed seeing her struggles and strengths. Sam is sweet, but he can be utterly clueless. I loved the glimpse of them in high school and how kind Sam was. And once they finally saw each other again as adults, I was excited to see how it would go. I did see the cliffhanger coming, but I am here for it. I am really looking forward the the second book in this duet to see what happens!

EXCERPT

Sam leans against the counter watching me. His gaze on me is intimate again,
and I can feel my resolve slipping away beneath my feet. “I know they’re in here
somewhere,” I mutter. “Dad never throws anything out.” I rustle through old pill
bottles. “Ah-ha!” Smiling, I grab what I was looking for.
“Are you sure you should be taking expired muscle relaxers?” Sam asks,
crossing his arms over his chest in a way that I so don’t notice his muscular
biceps bulging against the sleeves of his black t-shirt.
“Are you sure you should be telling me what to do?” I retort and struggle to
untwist the childproof lid.
“Well I’m a doctor, so when it comes to taking medication, yes. I should be
telling you what to do, and taking old medication isn’t smart.”
“Touché,” I say with a forced smile, eyes narrowing. The last thing I need is
Sam fucking Harris judging me. “It’s easy to forget you actually got accepted and
then graduated from medical school.”
Sam laughs and plows a hand through his thick brown locks, messing them up
in a way that looks way too fucking good on him. On anyone. His lips pull into a
half-smile and his eyes meet mine. “With honors,” he adds. “Don’t forget that I
graduated with honors.”
“Who’d you have to sleep with to get that?” I spit back, working hard to keep
my composure. I will not crumble…I will not crumble…
“Whoever I damn well wanted to,” he says with a shrug. “Though that had
nothing to do with my exceptionally good grades.” He parts his lips, tongue
darting out to wet them. He knows exactly what he’s doing, and I wonder if this is
a game to him, seeing how easily I’ll cave and fall back on our pact. He doesn’t
want the night to end in marriage, no way, but he wants to get what he couldn’t
before.
Me, naked in his bed. And dammit, I really want that too.
“Let me,” he says, closing the distance between us, and cups his hands around
mine. It’s then I notice all over again just how grown up Sam has become. Where
once stood a boy stands a man, and he’s all man now. He was always athletic
before, but he’s filled out, thick with pounds of muscle. The boyish, playboy
charm still sparkles in his eyes, but it’s peppered with something that alludes to
experience, something that promises he knows his way around a woman’s body
and he never disappoints.

“These expired seven years ago.” He holds up the bottle. “If you’re that
desperate, let me prescribe something for you.”
I let out a breath and bring my hand to my shoulder, pressing my fingers into
my stiff muscle. It’s really not that bad; nothing a trip to a good massage therapist
wouldn’t cure. Yet there’s nowhere to get a decent massage in Silver Ridge,
evidence perhaps that I’ve grown too used to my cushy and very extra LA lifestyle.
“Or,” Sam goes on, deep voice like gravel as he sets the pills down on the
counter, “I could do this.” He takes a step back and brings his hands to my
shoulders, gently massaging them. His large hands are warm against my skin.
Deft fingers work right into the knot above my shoulders blade, and some of the
pain immediately leaves me, only to be replaced by a different kind of pain. It’s
not physical, and it’s rooted in a deep longing for something I’ll never have.

The One for Me by Corinne Michaels

4.5 STARS

Release Date: August 18, 2020

SYNOPSIS: Devney Maxwell has been my best friend since we were six years old, but she has no idea I’m in love with her.⁣ Even when I’m on the road playing professional baseball, she’s my home—the only one I’ve ever known. But when I return to Sugarloaf to care for the family farm, I discover she’s trying to talk herself into a life with the wrong man … and I become desperate.⁣ It only takes a single, perfect kiss to change everything.⁣ I have six months to get it right with Devney—to convince her to leave this town and turn that kiss into forever.⁣ I aim to do just that as I spend my days coaching her nephew’s baseball team, fixing up the farm, and loving her with all I have. Finally, it seems like our relationship is secure and we’ll find a way to make it work.⁣ Then tragedy strikes … changing her life forever. She’s needed here more than ever, but as for me—there’s no way I can stay.⁣ I know she’s the one for me, but I might have to let her go …⁣

REVIEW: After reading the first two books an getting a glimpse of Devney and Sean, I knew this one was going to be good. Corinne Michaels always makes me feel ALL THE FEELS, and this one was emotional. Friends-to-lovers with a ton of angst and plot twists I did not see coming. I mean, WOW. This series definitely brings the drama, but in a very good way. The Arrowood Brothers are all a little tortured due to the secret they are all keeping, which add a depth to them I want to dive into. I love seeing them navigate their feelings and courting of the women they fall in love with. Poor Devney, but the hits she endures and mistakes she makes make her so very human. This story was emotional, but sweet, and I loved seeing these two best friends find their HEA together!
