Recommendation: When I Need You by Lorelei James

Recommendation: When I Need You by Lorelei James

Lorelei James delivers a sexy and engaging sports romance with When I Need You, and it is one of my favorite reads of the summer. Jensen Lund and Rowan Michaels are two extremely likable characters, and their romance is heart-warming. Jensen is a star professional football player, who is not interested in single mothers, cheerleaders, or medical practitioners. Rowan checks all three of these boxes; therefore, it seems unlikely that Jensen would ever be interested in her. Wrong. Jensen might have rules for dating, but he’s immediately intrigued and drawn to Rowan even though she’s everything he claimed he never wanted. Rowan is attracted to Jensen, but she has no interest in getting involved with a football player. But when Jenson lays on the charm, […]

Reader’s POV & Must-Reads: The Darkest Sunrise duet, ‘Swink’ and ‘Elusive’

Reader’s POV & Must-Reads: The Darkest Sunrise duet, ‘Swink’ and ‘Elusive’

Post appeared first @ USA Today’s Happy Ever After. Sometimes I finish a book, and I immediately want to tell everyone about it. I feel almost overwhelmed to spread the word, and I’m tempted to share not just with my friends and family, but also with the stranger behind me at the grocery store, the students in my spinning class and my son’s driving school instructor. If I didn’t fear being thought unhinged, I’d jump up and down, flail my arms and yell at the top of my lungs demanding everyone read this book. I have this kind of passion for these must-read romances, which is why I cannot wait another moment to tell you about them. The Darkest Sunrise duet by Aly Martinez The […]

Recommendation: Sin by Emma Hart

Recommendation: Sin by Emma Hart

Emma Hart writes the best heroines, and Dahlia Lloyd is one of my very favorites. She’s incredibly smart, a savvy business owner, a loyal friend, witty, sassy, and loves shoes. She goes toe to toe with the powerful and sexy Damien Fox in Sin without batting an eye. See review at Harlequin Junkie. Follow Sharehttps://keepershelf.com/2017/07/19/sin/

Recommendation: Beautiful Mistake by Vi Keeland

Recommendation: Beautiful Mistake by Vi Keeland

Let’s cut to the chase: Vi Keeland’s Beautiful Mistake is drop-dead sexy, breathtakingly romantic, intricately layered, jaw-droppingly unpredictable, and deliciously satisfying. It stands out in the vast and overwhelming sea of contemporary romance and will, undoubtedly, be on my Best of 2017 list. If I’ve adequately piqued your curiosity, do not waste another moment before starting Beautiful Mistake. If you need a little more convincing, see my full review at All About Romance.   Keeland breathes life into Caine and Rachel’s characters through insightful flashbacks and well-placed hints into both their pasts and their current psyches, and this gives them dimension and makes them relatable. Each interaction, moment, and exchange are carefully constructed pieces of a complicated puzzle that slowly creates a picture and tells a story that is […]

Recommendation: Chasing Vivi by A.M. Hargrove

Recommendation: Chasing Vivi by A.M. Hargrove

Chasing Vivi is a fun and sexy romance that you do not want to miss. Vivi and Prescott knew each other in high school—sort of. She was the chubby, studious girl who helped him with his schoolwork, and he was the popular, hot guy who ignored her, except when he needed help with his schoolwork. They run into each other years later, and Prescott is gobsmacked by the older Vivi. She has lost weight and dresses better, but he is not smitten just because she looks different. Vivi is now sassy and confident and doesn’t act interested in him, which he finds to be a big turn on. She turns down his attempts to ask her out. Vivi suffered in high school, and in many […]

Recommendation: Checkmate: This is Dangerous by Kennedy Fox

Recommendation: Checkmate: This is Dangerous by Kennedy Fox

This is Dangerous is the first book in a duet and part of Kennedy Fox’s Checkmate Duet series. It does end in a cliffhanger, but, luckily, the second book, will be out September 12, 2017.   Logan and Kayla are both incredibly endearing characters, and This is Dangerous is a sweet and sexy love story with an interesting plot. Logan is a single father who has avoided relationships in order to focus on his daughter, who he does not get to see often because she lives out of town. He and Kayla met through mutual friends, and he’s attracted to her but knows he’s not a good bet.   Kayla is very interested in Logan, but he’s made it loud and clear that he’s only […]

Reader’s POV & Must-Reads: Timber! Someone just fell in love hard

Reader’s POV & Must-Reads: Timber! Someone just fell in love hard

I’m giddy when a heroine or hero finds themselves utterly and completely head over heels in love. Worlds are tilted, heads are spun, and lives are altered, and the sheer romance of witnessing this tumble leaves me smiling like a loon. Authors wow with their ability to vividly portray these overwhelming emotions, allowing the reader to feel every breathtaking moment, and it’s the ultimate feel-good reading experience. Clear the area, because the heroines and heroes in these must-read romances are about to be felled by love. Train Wreck by T. Gephart I’ve never read T.

Recommendation: Steal by Rachel Van Dyken

Rachel Van Dyken never disappoints, and Steal is a sexy and fun second-chance romance with a lot of heart and a touch of angst. Angelica and Will have a complicated history.

Recommendation: Dr. ER by Max Monroe

Recommendation: Dr. ER by Max Monroe

Max Monroe is back and better than ever. Dr. ER is everything I’ve come to expect from this amazing author duo – tons of laugh out loud moments, a too-die-for, hot hero with his perfectly matched heroine, kindle-fogging moments, and a fun, heartfelt and memorable plot.  Obviously, I loved Dr. ER , and you will too. Dr. Scott Shepard is featured in a television docuseries and has earned the nickname Dr. Erotic, and he loves the attention. He’s laid back, hilarious, phenomenal doctor, and handsome; therefore, he has no problem finding dates but the show amplifies his game. He’s become a bit of a public figure, but this gregarious and charismatic guy is just fine with that. He meets gossip columnist Harlow Paige when he […]
