Recommendation: Dangerous Fling by Crystal Kaswell

Recommendation: Dangerous Fling by Crystal Kaswell

Dangerous Fling is my favorite book (and the fourth) in Crystal Kaswell’s Dangerous Noise series. There is just something about Malcolm (Mal) Strong that is incredibly hard to resist. He’s sexy, serious, broody, sensitive and an amazing older brother. I can see why Lacey fell hard and fast for him.   They met while taping a video for his band Dangerous Noise. They had amazing chemistry and Lacey impressed Mal when she went out on […]

Recommendation: Swear by Adrianna Locke

Recommendation: Swear by Adrianna Locke

  Can I please become of a member of the Landry family? Seriously – I love this family, and I am creating a list of book-families-I-want-to-belong-to and putting them at the top of that list. Adriana Locke has a gift for creating a warm and wonderful cast of characters in this tight-knit family, and this is is one of my favorite family-centric series.   Swear is Ford Landry’s story. He’s spent the last ten years […]

Recommendation: Dating-ish by Penny Reid

Recommendation: Dating-ish by Penny Reid

I have a disorder that could be plaguing other romance readers – instant-gratification-itis. I’ve become so conditioned to expect instant-lust, instant-love, and almost-instant-sex in my romance novels that I forgot how enjoyable delayed gratification can be. I get a little fidgety and uncomfortable when I have to wait for feelings to develop and action to take place, but I’ve found a cure. Read Penny Reid’s Dating-ish. This perfectly plotted, beautifully complex, utterly charming, slow-burn romance […]

A Reader’s POV & Must-Reads: Office romances with Ella James, Avery Flynn and K.A. Linde

A Reader’s POV & Must-Reads: Office romances with Ella James, A..

Post appeared on USA Today’s Happy Ever After on May 11, 2017. My husband fell in love with me because of a memo I wrote. He’ll deny it and claim it was my kind heart, vivacious personality and stunning smile, but I know it was really my mad memo-writing skills. Honestly, who could resist a perfectly formatted memorandum riddled with bullet points and a sexy pros and cons list? Before your mind wonders to illicit places, […]

Recommendation: Love Me in the Dark by Mia Asher

Recommendation: Love Me in the Dark by Mia Asher

Mia Asher’s Love Me in the Dark is an emotional, gut-wrenching and beautiful book, and reading it was both exhausting and extremely satisfying. This story is not for the faint of heart or anyone uncomfortable with love triangles. Your heart will be broken, but Ms. Asher WILL put it back together. Just hold on tight and get ready for an angsty and thought-proving journey.   Valentina’s marriage is on the rocks, but she is trying […]

Recommendation: Your Alluring Love by Layla Hagen

Recommendation: Your Alluring Love by Layla Hagen

It’s no secret that I love a family-centric series, and Layla Hagen’s The Bennett Family series is one of the best. Your Alluring Love is the sixth book featuring one of the nine Bennett siblings, and I am happy to say that means there … See review @ Harlequin Junkie.

Recommendation: Going in Deep by Carly Phillips

Recommendation: Going in Deep by Carly Phillips

  Going in Deep is what you’d expect from Carly Phillips – a sexy and swoonworthy romance – but it’s also so much more. Ms. Phillips has fearlessly written a story with a remarkably different kind of hero and heroine than typically found in romance novels, making this a unique and distinctive book. I’m sure readers will appreciate this bold and unexpected love story. It is rare to have a protagonist in a romance dealing with […]

Recommendation: Lovestruck by Lila Monroe

Recommendation: Lovestruck by Lila Monroe

Lovestruck is a charming and fun second-chance romance, and I am now a card-carrying Lila Monroe fan. Ruby and Will were close friends in college, but Ruby fell in love with him and poured out her heart through a letter right before their graduation. Well, that didn’t go over so well, and she was incredibly hurt and has not talked to him in five years. She still feels humiliated over the incident; therefore, she’s less than […]

Recommendation: Pipe Dreams by Sarina Bowen

Recommendation: Pipe Dreams by Sarina Bowen

Sarina Bowen’s Pipe Dreams is a thoughtful and emotional love story with the perfect blend of reality and fantasy to make it feel relatable while also still feeling like escapism, and I loved it. It has all the fun associated with a contemporary sports romance but also delves into some of the complex challenges faced by couples in second-chance relationships. While it is the third book in Ms.Bowen’s Brooklyn Bruisers series, they are all stand-alones and do […]
