Run to You by Rachel Lacey

<i>Run to You</i> by Rachel Lacey

Ethan Hunter (a 2008 Olympic Gold Medalist in swimming, so there’s a visual for you) is trying to open Off the Grid Adventures with his two best mates who he has known since they were in foster care. Besides those two lads, his family is his Gram, his mother’s mother, who adopted him in his […]

For Better or Worse by Lauren ...

<i>For Better or Worse</i> by Lauren Layne

For Better or Worse is the newest installment in the world of the Wedding Belles, a high-class wedding planning business in Manhattan. Wedding planner romances are my catnip (comes from watching that J.Lo movie too many times!), so I was delighted when I heard about this series. So far, I have not been disappointed. This […]

Must Love Wieners by Casey Gri...

<i>Must Love Wieners</i> by Casey Griffin

Yes, the puns are no joke. Yes, the title is a touch OTT. SBTB covered this issue way better than I ever could (prepare for snort laughing), so let’s just get that out of the way now. Because y’all, this book is delightful. A touch frustrating at times, but overall delightful. Piper is an aspiring […]

To Have and To Hold by Lauren ...

<i>To Have and To Hold</i> by Lauren Layne

To Have and to Hold is the first full installment of Lauren Layne’s “Wedding Belles” series, focusing on a high-end wedding planning company in Manhattan. This kickoff focuses on Seth and Brooke and was delightful from beginning to end. Seth enters our story as the brother of a Wedding Belles bride, while Brooke is their […]

Royal Games by Sariah Wilson

<i>Royal Games</i> by Sariah Wilson

Royal GamesĀ is the latest installment in Wilson’s ‘Royals of Monterra’ series and, y’all, I thought it would be complete trope-nip to me. Royalty? Check, as this one deals with Prince Rafe. Hollywood? Check, as our hero and heroine met on a reality TV program. Small towns? Check, as all the action takes place in the […]

Driven to Temptation by Melia ...

<i>Driven to Temptation</i> by Melia Alexander

Driven to Temptation is a fun and flirty romance with a lot of heat. It’s a forbidden love (boss-employee) with a touch of enemies-to-lovers (he initially hates her but that doesn’t last long) that would serve as the perfect poolside read this summer. Aiden is the owner of an engineering firm in Central Oregon whose […]

about that fling by Tawna Fens...

<i>about that fling</i> by Tawna Fenske

about that fling is a laugh-out-loud book about what matters at the core of relationships – honesty with self and others. Jenna, our heroine, works at a large health care system that is in serious crisis. Thus, they call in a crisis negotiator. The night before she has to start the process, she heads to […]

The Reasons to Stay by Laura D...

<i>The Reasons to Stay</i> by Laura Drake

  The Reasons to Stay, a Harlequin/Mills & Boon Super Romance, is a fabulous book that I enjoyed from cover to cover. It’s one of those that grabs you quickly and encourages you to invest in these people nearly immediately. Pris, our heroine, is not a lady who likes connections. However, life forces her hand […]

Waiting for Ethan by Diane Ba...

<i> Waiting for Ethan</i> by Diane Barnes

  Waiting for Ethan is a charming book that I would happily pass on to my mother – who likes her romances fluffy and happy, heavy on romance and light on sex. My only real problem with it is a typical one of debut novels – Barnes ends the book before it is finished. I […]

Sounds Like Me by Sara Bareill...

<i>Sounds Like Me</i> by Sara Bareilles

  In the intro to this memoir, Sara Barielles writes that she hopes the essay sound like her (hence the book title). She hopes that we feel at home with her voice, that this is just a conversation between some friends and she’s got the floor for now. As someone who has listened to her […]
