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 […]

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 […]

Something More Than This by Ba...

<i>Something More Than This</i> by Barbie Bohrman

Something More Than This is both a friends-to-lovers story (which is my catnip) and a love triangle (which I am more averse to, traditionally). Katy is a sports writer with a great knowledge of the team she covers and a great best friend in her boss and mentor, Dylan. She’s in a really good groove […]

Without Borders by Amanda Hege...

<i>Without Borders</i> by Amanda Heger

The quick summary on the book promo is the first thing that grabbed me about this one. For Annie London, a month in a Central American rainforest means handing out mosquito nets, giving medical aid, and teaching children about the birds and the bees. With any luck, it will also land her application in the […]

The Sweetest Rain by Myra John...

<i>The Sweetest Rain</i> by Myra Johnson

One of the reasons I love reading is that I can learn about people and places I would have never known. Sometimes good escapist fictional fluff is lovely, but most of the time I love a book I can also feel wrapped by. Like a blanket of knowledge comforting me into a better person. When […]

The Residence: Inside the Private ...

<i>The Residence: Inside the Private World of the White House</i> by Kate Anderson Brower

  I was poking around my library’s eBook website, looking for a few books for an upcoming beach holiday when this cover caught my eye. Thinking back to the Lee Daniels movie/saccharine revisionist history fest The Butler, I was intrigued to learn more about the employees of the White House residence. I’m glad I picked the […]

What to Do with a Duke by Sall...

<i>What to Do with a Duke</i> by Sally MacKenzie

  Sally MacKenzie is one of those authors I’ve known of for years. I saw her books on shelves, heard them recommended on podcasts, but for whatever reason never picked one up. When I saw What to Do with a Duke up for request on NetGalley I jumped at the chance to get to know this […]

Wildest Dreams by Robyn Carr

<i>Wildest Dreams </i> by Robyn Carr

  Robyn Carr is an author known for gentle romances set in small towns where people who were broken find wholeness. Wildest Dreams, the latest in her series set in Thunder Point, is no exception. Blake and Lin Su are our couple in this one – but other familiar characters play featured roles as well. Carr […]

If You Only Knew by Kristan Hi...

<i>If You Only Knew</i> by Kristan Higgins

  “Oh,” I said to myself as I looked at the clock last night, noting it was about 11pm. I had just completed another review and was ready to move onto this new work by Higgins – something I had been greatly anticipating. “I guess I’ll read the first few chapters to get a feel […]

Animal Magnetism by Jill Shalv...

<i>Animal Magnetism</i> by Jill Shalvis

  I don’t think I’ve read any other novel where the opening scene involves a car accident caused by duck. That’s right, duck. Lilah – our heroine – crashes into Brady – our hero -‘s truck in a convenience store parking lot because she’s distracted by the duck she is transporting back to her animal […]
