I Heart Forever by Lindsey Kel...

<i>I Heart Forever</i> by Lindsey Kelk

In I Heart Forever, Kelk takes us back to her New York, as previously explored in the last six installments of this series. It’s a New York full of promise, hijinks, and beautiful people who possess kindness and warmth. Like a fairyland of sorts, for sure, but an utterly delightful fiction to indulge in. Angela’s life […]

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 […]

Sexy Living by Regina Cole

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 Games 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 […]
