Taking the Score by Kate Meade...

<i>Taking the Score</i> by Kate Meader

Y’all. This one is good. This one is real good. For anyone who hasn’t read Kate Meader before, I’m going to give you a brief introduction to her writing. I don’t normally provide excerpts here at Beverages and Books, but the folks over at Tasty Tours graciously provided one for me to use. I think Meader is […]

Snowflakes on Silver Cove by H...

<i>Snowflakes on Silver Cove</i> by Holly Martin

You know those books that feel like you’ve been doing life with these people for a while? Where you are a fly on a wall into a fully realized world and when you leave the book you wish the author would text you every once and a while to let you know how the characters […]

Jingle Bell Harbor by Tracy Br...

<i>Jingle Bell Harbor</i> by Tracy Brogan

Jingle Bell Harbor was a delightful little holiday romance that I’d recommend to anyone who enjoys contemporary stories set in small towns and second-chance romances. It avoids the things that drive me nuts about novellas (no real pacing, limited character development, sex without context) and allowed me to just enjoy getting to know these folks. […]

Some Girls Do by Amy Andrews

Some Girls Do is a story of forbidden love and finding home, both in location and in a person. Lacy and Cooper first meet as a hot and satisfying one night stand in a bar in Melbourne. Not having any idea who the other person is, the find out quickly they already had a connection. […]

Breaking a Legend by Sarah Rob...

<i>Breaking a Legend</i> by Sarah Robinson

Breaking a Legend surprised me a bit. I’m not always into MMA books, but wanted to pick this one up because… well, let’s be honest, that cover is not messing around. Like a lot of other MMA books I’ve read, our hero (Rory) is an ALPHA male who dotes on taking care of our heroine, who […]

Rescue My Heart by Jill Shalvi...

<i>Rescue My Heart</i> by Jill Shalvis

  Rescue My Heart is the third in Shavis’s delightful “Animal Magnetism” series. This one is about Adam and Holly, who have quite the past, full of love and misunderstanding. When Holly’s dad goes missing in the mountains, she enlists Adam’s help and they begin the forced reconciliation. Adam is just freshly back from several […]

Acute Reactions by Ruby Lang

<i>Acute Reactions</i> by Ruby Lang

  Acute Reactions is a contemporary romance set in the Pacific Northwest (which I’m beginning to think is the law for contemporary romances these days…) about two fairly broken folks who find love. On the surface, it’s that simple. There are no motorcycle gangs here, no MMA fighters, just two professional people with parental baggage […]

Wilde at Heart by Tonya Burrow...

<i>Wilde at Heart</i> by Tonya Burrows

I am still dipping my toe into romantic suspense, if I’m honest. I read a few too many while in college that were pants and it put me off the whole sub genre. So as I’m working on building this blog, I decided to make sure to branch out into parts of romancelandia I’m not […]

Crazy Thing Called Love by Mol...

<i>Crazy Thing Called Love</i> by Molly O’Keefe

  I was totally swept up in this story. Trope alert: this is second-chance love at its best. Maddy and Billy were married lifetimes ago when they were both young and living in Pittsburgh. Billy was drafted into the NHL quickly into their marriage and decided that his free pass to puck bunnies was more […]
