Synopsis

One heinous tragedy changed my entire family forever.

That morning, my world crumbled. I lost my parents.

 

Now, I live by certain rules.

Don’t let anyone know what goes on inside your head.

Stay away from crowds.

Never fall in love.

 

Though, that was until her. She has me questioning everything.

 

It’s the haunted eyes.

The sultry voice.

The sweetness under her armor.

Everything about her captivates me. The surge of energy we create with one touch has me searching for her, even when there’s also something dark underneath her bright smile.

 

Unable to resist the desire toward her, I break my rules giving her all of me while expecting all of her.

Stories about moving on with life after experiencing a tragedy have been a part of the fiction world for quite some time. It’s as if by reading these stories we are trying to brace ourselves for the “what ifs” it’s a safe space to sort through all the emotions and very few stories hit the mark on exploring all of the emotions than this story. 
This is a story about LeAnn who is having to figure out how to rebuild her life after the death of her husband in a car accident,the gut wrenching flashback where we find out the back story is so emotionally written I just felt wrung out emotionally after I read it. It took me a little bit to keep going. But after that scene where LeAnn relives that night we begin to see changes in her demeanor. 
She receives the sign she was looking for and after spotting a flyer for a cruise blowing in the wind she signs up! Deciding to take that first step is always the hardest part and so when LeAnn decides on going on that cruise and then grabs her bestie to go with her you know things are about to be life changing. 
Brandon is one of the staff members on the cruise ship along with his best friend Dale ( Convenient right?) and turns out they are exotic dancers. . . After a chance meeting with LeAnn this story becomes like Magic Mike meets P.S. I Love You haha which I enjoyed the match up of the two. It was completely different from what I expected when I began the book and I am always one for surprises and twists and turns and this book sure delivered! It was my first read by Elaine but I know that a binge read is imminent!

This sweet wintery office romance was the perfect read (it’s over 100 degrees in my neck of the woods so I was looking for a winter read haha) and this one was exactly what I was looking for! 
Whynter is starting a new job and while striving to get ahead in the company she realizes she is fighting a major love jones for the boss Dominic. He has a strict no fraternizing with his employees policy but as any lover of romance novels knows the more they protest and use cop outs to deny the attraction the hotter the romance. 
Their chemistry is shown off really well with the flirty banter and it’s witty and sharp so major kudos on that point to Elaine! Sometimes the dialogue between the hero and heroine leaves a bit to be desired but that is definitely not the case with this one. 
Dominic and Whynter are adorable together and their road to romance wasn’t a easy road but it was a completely enjoyable real life read! I would definitely read more about them. . . (Please? Hint, hint 😉 . . . Bookworm Morse code for please more D&W )

I kept seeing the cover of this book all over Facebook and fell in love with it first but then I read the blurb and then my book love meter went through the roof! Like a bodybuilder hitting a strength tester at the fair. I adore second chance romance stories and so I added a reminder to my phone to pick this up on release day. 
This is a story of a epic love story that hit a speed bump due to a lot of factors but gambling addiction was a main one. Dealing with the subject of addiction is a brave choice for a debut novel! I liked that B made a choice to not play it safe with this story. Brighton and Sebastian are this witty, enigmatic sexy couple and we get to explore the how’s and why’s of why their relationship ended and why neither one of them could move on after the split. 
The majority of this story is told through messages which I always think is an under used method of story telling and it worked really well in this story. The rest of the story integrates with the messages so it’s a seamless transition and not choppy like some stories that feature a lot of texts or emails end up. 
This is one of the most honest stories and I really enjoyed that we really got to see them work out their issues. Not just together but on their own as well. There are so many emotions that run through this story and they are all laid out there. So you see indecision, and doubt and all of the nitty gritty. Don’t get me wrong I love a instalove kind of resolution only takes a couple of paragraphs after a singular magic moment. But this one was so life like and real world that it was easy to get swept into the story.

One of the things I have enjoyed most on my blogger journey is finding new authors and one of the authors I had that messaged me when I was just starting out was the brilliant e.s and thus began my love for this series. I am now on a catch up mission to read the rest of the books in this series now that life has slown down a little haha. 
I loved Harry’s character every time we have seen him and I knew he would have one emotional, soul stirring story once we got to his book and I was not wrong! Thirteen is one of the most inspiring but emotional stories I have read in a while. What you have to get right from the beginning is that while Harry is hilarious. . . Oftentimes, he is using humor to deflect from his true emotions. So understanding that it leads you to ponder every joke and go “what is really going on with him?” Sometimes I might over analyze haha because sometimes a joke is just that. But Harry’s vivacious personality really pops off the page.
Lilah is such an incredible character, she is my favorite heroine of the series! She’s everything today’s woman is, tough yet vulnerable, struggling with accepting help when she really wants to do it all on her own, body image issues. She is relatable on so many levels and I just love her with Harry. Add in her twin Nicola for some comic relief (and someone I want to know more about. .. see this is how my obsession grows. You see one secondary character and next thing you know you immediately want to know their whole life story!) 
This story is everything I hoped it would be and everything I wanted without knowing what to ask for. This series is one of my can’t miss series recommendations!

Review: Sugared (A Lacey Luzzi Mafia Mystery #10) By: Gina LaManna 

Review: Sugared (A Lacey Luzzi Mafia Mystery #10) By: Gina LaManna

Here we are 10 books into this amazing series and the moment we have been waiting for is here! (Well, we are a year past Lacey and Anthony’s adorable wedding sans family) and the “official” wedding is about to take place. Sugared starts out in typical Luzzi fashion haha and from the moment we rejoin with our favorite over the top clan it is home sweet home. This series is always one of my favorites and here in book 10 it keeps getting bigger and better. 
There is a mystery afoot and everyone is in a uproar about a potential murder at the cathedral where the nuptials are gonna take place and it kicks off a intense ride for Lacey and Co. In addition to all of the wedding upheaval we get an adorable look at how Lacey and Anthony are at home and tacking some of those big couple questions *wink wink* 
After some helpful wedding night info sharing from Nora (one of my favorite moments in the book) the story hits a fever pitch with the lead up to the event and the race to figure out who is trying to derail Lacey’a big day. It all comes together in a book ending that only happens in a Lacey Luzzi novel and leaves you quite eagerly anticipating the next book the minute you finish the last page. 
I have loved being a part of this story and growing along with Lacey and seeing how far she has came since her first awkward investigations where she was sure Anthony was trying to harm her and to where she didn’t quite know better when to avoid Nora’s cooking or that Clay is really just a big softie with a penchant for mishaps. It’s a amazing journey we’ve taken with Lacey and I cannot wait for the next step in her life.

I have loved historical stories since I was a kid. Could have been because that was my momma’ favorite type to read ( You know those historical romance novels from the 80s and 90s) all us millennial era bookworms know the ones chances are they were our first introduction to the genre ( I know I was sneaking them since I was about 11) then in 2003 while I was a Junior in high school I discovered Diana Garbaldon’s Outlander and boy, to find a book that combined a fantasy element along with a historical romance? That is the kind of book love that happens when 2 of your absolute favorite genres get together and the result is stunning. So when I first read the premise for this story I was like this could be pure instabook love for me! I was not wrong. 
Now, if you follow my reviews you know that I adore a author who is daring enough to write in detail. You know the ones who will paint so vivid a story down to the smallest detail you feel like you are right there along with the characters. It makes for a visceral reading experience and is one I constantly look for. Marie definitely gives us that in this story, and you know she backs it up with impeccable attention to detail and research into the time period. 
I remember discussing Ponce de Leon during a Colonial Latin America history class I took in college and I always found the story fascinating so that struck a chord with me from when I began the story. Ponce is this man on a mission haha to say the least but he is very charismatic and you are rooting for his success right from the beginning. Marlena is an adorable heroine and everything you look for, she’s smart, savvy a little on the tough side which just means she is DEFINITELY gonna throw Ponce’s life into a beautiful mess. Their first scene where he thinks she is Merlin made me gigglesnort more than once. He was completely oblivious which is what made it golden haha. 
I love the quick pacing of the story, everything flows pretty seamlessly on this adventure that blurs the line between fantasy and history in fantastic fashion. This was my first read by Marie and I would encourage any of my friends to pickup this fun read! Especially if you are looking for a historical romance with a smidge of fantasy with a lot of heart.
