Recommendation: Faking It by Carly Phillips & Erika Wilde

Recommendation: Faking It by Carly Phillips & Erika Wilde

  Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde are one of my favorite author-duos and their collaborations never fail to disappoint. Max and Hailey’s love story in Faking It builds sweet and slow with punches of smoldering heat and a tenderness that might induce a few to tears. Hailey owns an up-and-coming dating agency, but she hasn’t experienced much romantic success personally. She’s struggled with her weight, and this has made her hesitant to become emotionally or […]

Recommendation: Twist by Kylie Scott

Recommendation: Twist by Kylie Scott

  I’ve never read anything by this author before, but I liked Twist so much that I went on a Kylie Scott book-binge immediately afterwards and devoured some of her previous books. One weekend and four books later, I had a book hangover that made Monday difficult to embrace, but I don’t regret my overindulgence. Ms. Scott writes passionate, interesting and funny stories with endearing and relatable characters, and Twist is a thoroughly enjoyable book […]

Recommendation: A Lady’s Code of Misconduct by Meredith Duran

Recommendation: A Lady’s Code of Misconduct by Meredith Duran

  This historical romance offers an original and complex story and is a testament to Ms. Duran’s exceptional talent.

He might not remember Jane, but he feels a compelling connection with her and they share an intense sexual chemistry. Crispin’s memory loss gives the couple an opportunity to begin anew, and […]

Recommendation: My One True Highlander by Suzanne Enoch

Recommendation: My One True Highlander by Suzanne Enoch

Suzanne Enoch continues her No Ordinary Hero series with the second book – My One True Highlander. Ms. Enoch is one of my favorite authors, and her books set in the Scottish Highlands never fail to disappoint. My One True Highlander is a heartwarming and fun romance with sweet moments and sexy interludes, and I highly recommend it. The Maxwell brothers are an endearing family and add a charming touch to the story. Graeme has raised […]

HEA Excerpt: Users’ Goodreads bookshelves a great (and fun!) source for recs

HEA Excerpt: Users’ Goodreads bookshelves a great (and fun!) sou..

I often peruse Goodreads to find my must-read-next book, but I don’t always look at the ratings or read the reviews. This could be considered an act of treason, considering I write and post reviews, but I’ve discovered the custom, user-created, virtual bookshelves on Goodreads, sometimes, are more candid and insightful than any narrative written or number of stars awarded. And, frankly, they’re also wildly entertaining and downright fun to read. If you’re unfamiliar with […]

Recommendation: The Hard Truth About Sunshine by Sawyer Bennett

Recommendation: The Hard Truth About Sunshine by Sawyer Bennett

When I am picking out a book to read, I admit that I avoid stories that might make me sad – even romance novels where I am assured a happily ever after. I am a bit of an emotional wimp; therefore, I was leery of Sawyer Bennett’s The Hard Truth About Sunshine after reading the book’s description. The story tackles tough subject matter, and I was pretty sure an ugly cry would be in my future. I […]

Recommendation: Catching Carly by Emma Hart

Recommendation: Catching Carly by Emma Hart

I was snorting with laughter while reading Emma Hart’s Catching Carly, and I think you will too. It’s a fun and flirty frenemies-to-lovers romance that is sure to amuse and entertain you from beginning to end. Catching Carly is the second book in the Barley Cross series, but all the books are stand-alones and do not need to be read in order. Carly is a hilarious, self-depreciating twenty-five-year-old with a dry wit and sarcastic view […]

Recommendation: Come Closer by Brenda Rothert

Recommendation: Come Closer by Brenda Rothert

As soon as I started Come Closer, I could NOT put it down. I was riveted from the beginning to the end, and the story knocked my socks off. I have never read anything like this, and I am not sure I ever will again. I believe this is Ms. Rothert’s first foray into romantic suspense, and she knocked it out of the park. Allison Cole’s twin sister was murdered before her eyes, and she hasn’t spoken a […]

Recommendation: Pucked Off by Helena Hunting

Recommendation: Pucked Off by Helena Hunting

Pucked Off  is a gut-wrenching, heartfelt romance that you do not want to miss. It’s a profound and poignant love story where a tortured hero finds love and unreserved acceptance that gives him the strength to heal deep emotional wounds. All of this angst is wrapped up in a sexy hockey romance making Pucked Off really is an all-around great book. Poppy is a wonderful character, but Lance is mesmerizing in Pucked Off. He will break your heart and […]

Recommendation: Bossed by Sloane Howell

Recommendation: Bossed by Sloane Howell

This is my first time reading Sloane Howell, but it is definitely not my last. He’s a bit of a unicorn in Romancelandia – a male author! I thoroughly enjoyed Bossed. It’s a fun and sexy story with interesting characters who have great chemistry and indulge in lots of witty banter – my favorite! You’ll laugh, smile and probably blush a little when you read it. Jenny gets the opportunity of a lifetime when she’s offered a position at Ethan Mason’s sports agent firm. […]
