I have high expectations of this book and it DID NOT DISAPPOINT!!! This book is my TOP anticipated March release and I’m glad that it was an excellent book. I was so speechless after reading it. I never read anything like this before, honestly!

The story had this ‘mighty rich’ type of setting, it made you think like “Wow! This is totally different from other books.” It’s hard to explain tho, but that’s the only easiest way for me to explain it. I never had a hard time explaining things before, an

This is a new to me author and from looking into things, this is her first book as well. She's talented and I look forward to following her career. I enjoyed this book. There were a few things that were not for me but overall I liked it. The parts that didn't sit well with me are the "instalove" aspect of his feelings for her and the fact that a few things left me confused. I hope that with the next book (or books) that we get those answers. Adeline and Mitch are great in their own rig

Ellis's writing is enriched with description especially setting description, places me tight in the heart of New York. Sadly, I do have a few issues with the storyline. Mitch and Adeline spend one glorious day together ten years ago. It was one day. When they reconnect, they are only together a matter of days before he completely upends his life and professes his love. The timeline is incredibly short especially with everything he has to lose with this relationship. At the end of the book, I was ...more

Charmed Empire was a beautiful love story, fairytale romance. I loved everything about the book, the storyline, the pace, the characters, I couldn't put the book down. I can't wait for the next book in the series.

This is Addy and Mitch's love story. They first met as young adults, before starting college, spending a magical day together in New York, the day before Addy leaves to return home to Australia. Fast forward 10 years and Addy is back in New York, although she has thought of Mitch often

Yes yes yes people you will get your answers in book 2 which I was lucky enough to get an ARC for......even better than the 1st! I read both within 10 days, just couldn’t get enough of the characters and where the journey was going.

Fast, exciting, sexy reading......move over Christian and Anastasia......I want more Mitch and Adeline!

Spending most of her life in Sydney, Australia, before moving back to her hometown of Brisbane, Brooke worked as a chef for 22 years in many a steamy hot kitchen. This then provided the perfect segue into writing equally steamy hot contemporary romance books. Letting her imagination run wild, she set out writing her first novel in 2017, which turned into a second and third in 2018. Her life is cur ...more
