Pink Box of Treasures

Pink Box of Treasures

Behold the glory of the pink box. After an absolute nightmare of a day yesterday, I was delighted to find this box of treasures upon my doorstep. Chock full with books I haven’t read (an increasingly difficult feat, I admit), I giggled delightedly as I unpacked. The main book in this month’s FFBox is Mika Jolie’s The […]

Ready to Run by Lauren Layne

<i>Ready to Run</i> by Lauren Layne

I’m an unabashed Lauren Layne fan, and this book only adds to that love. A hybrid of The Bachelor franchise and the fabulous Julia Roberts movie Runaway Bride, Ready to Run tells the story of ambitious producer Jordan Carpenter and reluctant contestant Luke Elliot. Jordan Carpenter’s job depends on finding a lead for the new reality show, Jilted, which is going to […]

#BoxOfBooks

There are so, so many book boxes out there these days, but most of them combine “bookish items” with books. What sets the Fresh Fiction box apart is that is almost entirely books. Books from authors you love, and books from authors you haven’t met yet. In the July box, for instance (see above and […]

Tanner by Sarah Mayberry

<i>Tanner</i> by Sarah Mayberry

We all have those authors that are insta-clicks, don’t we. If you’re a contemporary romance reader and Sarah Mayberry isn’t one of yours, I’ll admit to being confused. I have at least liked, if not loved/adored/drooled over, everything she’s written and Tanner is no exception. The kick-off of a new series, we leave Mayberry’s normal stomping […]

The Legendary Lord by Valerie ...

<i>The Legendary Lord</i> by Valerie Bowman

Before I get going into my general delight of this book, decide for yourself if being historically accurate is important to you. There are some readers who are yanked right out of a historical romance if the idioms or customs are not time-period appropriate and it ruins everything for them. There are others who either […]

An Unseen Attraction by KJ Cha...

<i>An Unseen Attraction</i> by KJ Charles

If you’re a fan of historical romance that reads less like a romantic comedy and more like a gothic novel, I cannot recommend KJ Charles highly enough. This book is the first in a new series, so is also an good place to get in on the ground floor of an expanding universe. Charles is […]

Sexy Living by Regina Cole

<i>Sexy Living</i> by Regina Cole

After a particularly horrifying family wedding where she was reminded of her body at every available moment, she gussies up all her courage and hires a personal trainer at a local gym. Robert loves owning his […]

Crazy For You by Rachel Lacey

<i>Crazy For You</i> by Rachel Lacey

Best friend’s little sister trope klaxon! If that is your booknip, pile on in for this newest in Rachel Lacey’s Risking It All series. Crazy For You is the story of Emma and Ryan. Emma’s had a thing for Ryan since she knew what ‘things’ were but two things stopped her. One, he’s a bad boy and she’s […]

Playing the Player by Amy Andr...

<i>Playing the Player</i> by Amy Andrews

I think I may have an Amy Andrews problem. And by that, I mean that I am mildly obsessed with her books. She’s become a complete auto-click for me and I’m hoovering through her back catalogue. Playing the Player is no exception to how her particular book magic works on me. This one, the most recent […]

Welcome Home for Christmas by ...

<i>Welcome Home for Christmas</i> by Annie Rains

Mix in a charity bachelor auction, a quick agreement to be a fake boyfriend, volunteering with orphans, and a few meddling family members, and Welcome Home for […]
