On the Rocks by Kandi Steiner is a sweet and sassy contemporary small-town romance. Told in dual points of view between Noah and Ruby, this romance wiOn the Rocks by Kandi Steiner is a sweet and sassy contemporary small-town romance. Told in dual points of view between Noah and Ruby, this romance will make you swoon, has just enough angst to keep you completely hooked, and is so well-crafted that the slow-burn will literally set you on fire.
Noah is the bad boy, the one Ruby is warned away from many times. First, as a child in church later as an example of who NOT to associate with. An older, sexier, rough around the edges man who sees Ruby for who she truly is, not who she has crafted herself to be for her family's sake. Ruby has always been intrigued by Noah but her return to town and recent run-ins make it all the more obvious that who she is with is nothing like who she needs to have in her life.
There has not been a Kandi Steiner book I've read that I haven't absolutely loved and obsessed over. Enjoy!...more

One Man by Lisa Renee Jones is the first book in her brand new Naked trilogy. Told in dual POV between Emma and Jax, this story is sexy, dangerous aOne Man by Lisa Renee Jones is the first book in her brand new Naked trilogy. Told in dual POV between Emma and Jax, this story is sexy, dangerous and has a heck of a cliffhanger ending. I have long been a fan of this author, ever since I first read If I Were You back in 2013. Her books are always sexy, always have an underlying mystery and always ALWAYS completely suck me into the story.
Emma keeps herself separate and doesn't make herself available. Sex? Sure! Feelings? No way! But when her determination to move on from Jax does nothing more than increase his interest she feels her walls crumbling right along with her resolve.
Jax has one mission - find out what happened with his brother. He will do that whatever the cost. But with Emma in the picture and the two of them getting closer he may not be able to do whatever it takes. The cost, finally, may be too high.
Loved this - prepare for the cliffhanger but fear not, book two, One Woman, should be out in September 2019 and book three,Two Together, soon after in November 2019. Enjoy!...more

A standalone within the series, told in dual point of view, hilarious, romantic, swHooked by Joanne Schwehm is the 5th book in her Prescott series. A standalone within the series, told in dual point of view, hilarious, romantic, swoon worthy and awesome.
Josh Prescott did NOT expect to get accosted by a unicorn cake and the beautiful woman who fell on him with said unicorn cake when he went on a morning talk show to promote his restaurant. He certainly didn't expect to have his brother hire her as his new pastry chef. But the most shocking thing is when he realizes he can't deny his attraction to her and has no idea what to do with this lusty attraction.
Gia just blew her chance at more customers and two days on a the perfect unicorn cake with a sheer act of clumsiness. Not to mention the hot and tattooed hunk of man that she dumped her cake on. Utter mortification doesn't even begin to cover it. Running into him again at a job and falling into the pool with him does't help things. Realizing he's her new boss? The universe is just messing with her now.
This was my first book by Joanne Schwehm but it absolutely won't be my last. Funny and romantic with just the right amount of angst and drama to make it utterly and completely amazing. Loved This! Enjoy!...more

Boys That Tease: A Bully Romance by Betti Rosewood is a new adult contemporary romance told in dual POV between the naive heroine, Tinsley, and the buBoys That Tease: A Bully Romance by Betti Rosewood is a new adult contemporary romance told in dual POV between the naive heroine, Tinsley, and the bully/anti-hero, Crispin. The overall gist of the story pulled me in. The angst between friends turned enemies - with one now bullying the other in their elite high school, Wildwood. The pace of the story felt stilted and there was a lot of different things happening that added noise to a strong plot. There were also some unanswered plot lines that may be addressed in the next book. The interactions felt genuine but naive....more

Told in dual POV between the haughty prince and the imposter princessRoyal Catch by Kylie Gilmore is the first book in her new series, The Rourkes. Told in dual POV between the haughty prince and the imposter princess - this story is a tad over the top, the plot is a little crazy, the characters are a bit much and it all works perfectly together to create this funny romantic royal romp. Throw in some serious sexual tension and familial issues, a catty competition between princesses, and a few more fantastical situations and this book pulled me in. It was funny and sexy and a pleasure to read - I will definitely be revisiting The Rourkes for more of their stories. Enjoy!

Starting with a scandMind the Line by Jennifer Domenico is a standalone contemporary romance that is scorching hot and very much an "office" romance. Starting with a scandal, the two characters, Avery and Ellis, end up working together to put out the flames of their reputations only to start more fires in the bedroom. Well-written and well-paced this is my first book by this author but I will definitely be reading more form her in the future. The chemistry between her characters in this book, the crafted plot, the line (no-pun intended) between too real and too fake for fictional characters is balanced well. Enjoy!...more
Cheap Trick by Emily Goodwin is the fourth book in her Dawson Family series. A standalone contemporary romance set in the world of the Dawson's whomCheap Trick by Emily Goodwin is the fourth book in her Dawson Family series. A standalone contemporary romance set in the world of the Dawson's whom we did previously meet in Cheat Codes, End Game, and my favorite (still) Side Hustle. Danielle meets Logan Dawson in his bar and the stars collide and the sparks fly and (you get it, right?) instant attraction. But co-workers they must be and friends they become. But then who better to have as her fake date for her sisters wedding than someone hot and available like Logan? Iy won't mess with their friendship, she said. Things will work out fine, she said...
The emotion and tension between these two was sizzling off the pages (kindle screen) and it was a definite page-turner for me. Emily Goodwin is fast becoming a must-read author for me. Enjoy!...more
Well-written and well paced, told in dual points of view between Quinn, our heroine that somehow intimately knows a man she has never met, details of a life they've never lived, and the specific of places she has never traveled to and Nick, the doctor she meets for the first time but already knows in her heart. This is a book that entices you from the first chapter. The need to know more, to find out what is going on is a strong pull. The story line twists and turns but never leaves you feeling overly confused. Romantic, wistful, angst-ridden and thoroughly intriguing. Book two, Intersect, releases in a short couple of weeks but it isn't soon enough to get some answers to all the questions I have. Enjoy!...more
Anyway - back to the review for HIDE YOUR CRAZY - Sexy, steamy and a little bit dangerous - Katy has a sleepwalking issue, a dog that only listens when it suits him, and a new upstairs neighbor who paces. Add in the crazy ex that is about to be released, the neighbors crazy ex-wife and a screaming baby and her life is as crazy as you can get. But throughout it all - the bond of new friendship and attraction that blossoms between Katy and Logan is pure and honest. The supporting "cast" is just as quirky and the tale is addicting. Loved this! Slightly obsessed now. Enjoy!...more
Dangerous Magic by Evie Hart is the first book in her Haven Lake Cozy Mysteries series. A debut novel for this author and a spectacular read. All theDangerous Magic by Evie Hart is the first book in her Haven Lake Cozy Mysteries series. A debut novel for this author and a spectacular read. All the finesse and well-crafted work you expect from an established author but with a fresh and magical face. The world-building and magical lore is easy to keep up with and learn as we are slowly introduced to the world of Haven Lake. I absolutely LOVED this. Avery and her family are hilarious and I was definitely feeling a little bit of the "Droelle-ish" vibe from her interactions with Detective Sanders.
The familiars, the secondary characters and the overall plot were all absolutely wonderfully crafted. I normally stick to the smuttier side of romance but this cozy mystery was just as enjoyable a read. I Loved it! Enjoy!...more

As a reader and reviewer I know what auFrisky Business by Lila Monroe is the third book in her standalone romantic comedy series, Chick Flick Club. As a reader and reviewer I know what authors I can read and never be disappointed and Lila Monroe is definitely in that elite group. Funny and quirky characters, with an ensemble case of secondary characters we have met before (this is the third book after all) and a meeting of two complete opposites that manages to scorch the pages even while their plans are tumbling down around their head. Eve and Noah are flawed, funny, a little frustrating at times and the essential ingredients for this latest batch of awesome from a fave author. Enjoy!...more
