Royal fever has been running rampant since the announcement of the engagement of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and I knew it was only gonna be a matter of time before the shockwaves were felt in the romance novel industry, I loved the cover and blurb of this one so I added it to my TBR pile. This story is one that is so impactful and current that I could not put it down.

The story goes from 2016 and Nicole, daughter of the Presidential Candidate and reporter on assignment in Jordan, during which the unthinkable happens, and 2021 where she is back in the US, a survivor and involved in the political scene. This story brings so much of the political conflict to the forefront like some of the best political thrillers, but it also seamlessly blends with this indescribable love story.

There were times I had no clue what to expect from the storyline, as someone who’s read over 200 books this year with most of them in the romance genre, let me just say I’m hard to surprise! You just have to sit back and let it unfold. Because it is one heck of a story! Gripping, emotional, game changing for how a story with such a huge political influence storyline and romance can work brilliantly together.

Review: The Clover Chapel By: Devney Perry

Review: The Clover Chapel By: Devney Perry

Amazon Link: https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B06XDTMPQ4/ref=mp_s_a_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1512683655&sr=8-2&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=devney+perry&dpPl=1&dpID=41IE%2B-XfNCL&ref=plSrch

So after finishing up The Coppersmith Farmhouse I knew two things for certain. A) I needed book 2 in the series stat! And B) I was gonna be a lifelong fan of Devney’s. Like, seriously she could rewrite the tax code and I’d read through every page and be all yep, love it!! Understand it, couldn’t get enough. . . Now here we are with book 2 in the amazing Jamison Valley Series. This one starts off jumping right into the story. With one of my favorite settings for a novel, Vegas Baby!! Looking for one last hurrah before settling into the grind of work and commitments Emmy is out with her girls in Sin City, and a chance meeting while sharing a limo leads her to Nick, (remember him? 😉 . . . Of course you do) I love how he challenges her right off the bat to step out of her comfort zone and live life to the fullest with their one night Vegas adventure. Sometimes you need that from someone on the outside, away from your social circle to shake things up and challenge you to do new things. He’s fearless!

“A dare’s a dare, Emmy. No matter how old you are. You can tell a lot about a person by their reaction to a dare.” Words of wisdom if I ever heard them! Well done Nicky boy! I approved of you right from this instance. His character was that perfect mix of alpha and gentleman that you don’t see near enough in novels in my honest opinion. Usually the guys are on one side or the other. But here, as in Coppersmith Farmhouse, yes, the guys can be pushy, stubborn, and a little cocky. . . But they will go to war with a grizzly bear for the ones they care for if they think something threatens their well being.

Now, while time moves forward 9 years and there has been a little bit of a rift between them I will say one thing, I am a firm believer in fate, and everything happens for a reason and I think Devney’s brilliantly portrays that here. She could have made them have a HEA right out of the gate, but she didn’t take the easy way out here. She added conflict, and growing up, and how your priorities change and she added real life situations here guys! If you thought that lightning couldn’t possibly strike twice in the same series think again! Devney has brought us another unforgettable story with plenty of emotions, small town perfection and characters that you want to pull up a chair, a bottle of wine and watch the sunset over the Jamison Valley.

Earlier this year I picked up my first Kristen Proby read. The Fusion Series was one of my top series recommendations this year. And now we are back in that decadent environment with this all new story. Chase and Maura are your classic enemies to lovers kind of characters but with them the snark is just exquisite foreplay. I loved their lightning quick, witty banter and just the chemistry every time they are around each other is positively electric.

This short story is exactly what we have come to expect from the 1,001 Dark Nights series. Sweet, smoking hot with enough steaminess you are gonna want to watch fogging up the screen of your Kindle.

We also get cameos from some of the characters in the previous novels! I loved getting to see Kat again, she was always one of my absolute favorites and my style icon haha. That’s always what I love about these novellas, we get a new story within a familiar setting and it’s always like coming home.

About NO RESERVATIONS:

New York Times Bestselling author Kristen Proby takes us back to her highly acclaimed Fusion series.

Chase MacKenzie is not the man for Maura Jenkins. A self-proclaimed life-long bachelor, and unapologetic about his distaste for monogamy, a woman would have to be a masochist to want to fall into Chase’s bed.

And Maura is no masochist.

Chase has one strict rule: no strings attached. Which is fine with Maura because she doesn’t even really like Chase. He’s arrogant, cocky, and let’s not forget bossy. But when he aims that crooked grin at her, she goes weak in the knees. Not that she has any intentions of falling for his charms.

Definitely not.

Well, maybe just once…

Review: Everest By: S.L. Scott

Review: Everest By: S.L. Scott

Amazon Link: https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B077WXMT9P/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1512658287&sr=8-1&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=everest+s.l+scott

Earlier this year when I discovered the Kingwood Duet Series By: S.L I knew she was going to be an author that I would immediately gravitate to. Her characters always have this perfect blend of strong, yet not perfect, a little bit of some kind of chip on their shoulder, perfectly imperfect charisma about them. With Everest we get a story about the guy that gets every woman’s attention but the guy who is beginning to want something different. Ethan Everest longs to feel that connection with another person and with Singer he feels this connection. . .

From their first meeting they both experienced that pull toward another person, even across a crowded room, in the middle of a party they could still feel that inkling that their lives are about to collide. . . A chance meeting upon a fire escape that night gives us this slow burn moment that almost has us readers shrieking in frustration. (And I love a slow Burn! But this moment had me going oh, come on!) haha but trust in the author’s brilliance on this one guys! It’s worth the wait 😉

Singer is a character I could definitely relate to, at a time in her life where it feels like everything is in an upheaval, life after college isn’t working out like she planned, living in a sketchy apartment, struggling to just get by and live her dream of living in the big city and making strides toward her career as a writer. Really, she is every one of us diehard bookworms’ ideal character. We are invested in her character’s happiness and romantic success haha. We are not disappointed! Their story is intense, sexy and oh, so fresh and tantalizing. This story takes so unexpected twists that really made me appreciate S.L’s writing style all the more.

Six foot three. Dynamic green eyes. Utterly irresistible.

Ethan Everest stole my breath the first time I saw him. He romanced me with skill, dazzled me with his charisma, and proceeded to steal my heart right after.

I might have fallen for his easy going smile the first time we met, but I fell for him the second time.

Honey-colored hair. Cherry-kissed lips. Captivatingly gorgeous.

Singer Davis was the first, and only, woman to ever intimidate me. She spoke to my heart with her wit, seduced me with her eyes, and became the only thing that made sense in a world that made none.

I let her slip through my fingers once. I won’t make that mistake twice.

Secrets broke us apart. Can a second chance bring us back together?

Singer

Slipping off my shoes, I dim the lights on the wall panel. I take my clothes off and hang them on a hook near the door before returning to the tub.

The tub, warm and inviting as I step in, eases my aching feet from my high heels and the tension in my shoulders. I pour some of the bubble suds and giggle. That was so cute and showed me a whole new side to Ethan—the at-home Texan who relates to his roots—instead of the strong, quieter, broodier man I see sometimes.

While the suds foam and the tub fills, I look out the window. The sky is clear up here. The buildings are far enough apart to avoid spying on neighbors. It’s like floating in heaven.

I hear his knock on the door, so I call, “Come in,” while making sure the bubbles cover all the important parts.

Ethan walks in with two glasses of champagne in one hand and the bottle in the other.

“You came prepared,” I note, leaning back on one side of the tub.

“I thought I might join you.” He waggles his eyebrows.

I giggle and reach for a glass. “Come on in,” I reply and wonder if he will really take me up on my dare.

He sets the bottle and his glass down on the side of the tub. His tie was removed before he came in and I notice his shoes are long gone, along with his jacket. When he starts on the buttons of his shirt, I sit up, scooping suds over me. “Wait, for real?”

“Yep. I think that tub’s big enough for the two of us.”

“But you said you don’t take baths.”

“I also said I’ve never used this one. Seems like an opportune time.”

“But I’m naked,” I say, worried about everything—his body naked next to mine, not shaving my legs before I went out tonight. My mind flickers through my flaws. Ugh. No. Just no. Not like that. That stuff should be shared in the dark of a bedroom under the influence of alcohol and desperate sex. We’re too sober for this. I’m too sober for this. What does he possibly see in me when he has women like Nicolina waiting?

He’s more than I’ve imagined, and in some senses, it scares me. He’s the sort of man women like Nicolina land. For once though, it was as if she saw me as competition. The feeling is exhilarating.

“Like I said, seems like an opportune time.”

His shirt is dropped, his undershirt following quickly behind. Good God Almighty. What does a guy who looks like that see in me? “I see you like to work out.” I clear my throat and want to bonk my head on the side of the tub for saying it out loud.

Chuckling, he says, “I have a gym down the hall. It’s how I relieve stress.”

“I thought that’s what sex was for.” I gasp and cover my mouth, wishing I could keep my crazy thoughts in my head where they belong instead of on my tongue. His eyes are heavy, a smirky smirk restraining a laugh. “God, you cannot let me talk when I’m nervous.”

“If this is what happens when you’re nervous, I’ll make you nervous more often.” His pants come down and my curiosity is answered. Tonight he’s in boxers. When he catches my eyes on his package, I’m thankful I’m wearing waterproof mascara because I immediately go underwater. Screw my makeup. It’s really the only way to keep my mouth in check at this point. I count to five and then pop back up. With my hands covering my boobs, I ask, “You’re really coming in?”

“Yes, scoot over.”

Good God Almighty.

Living in the capital of Texas with her family, Scott loves traveling and avocados, beaches, and cooking with her kids. She’s obsessed with epic romances and loves a good plot twist. Her favorite color is blue, but she likens it more toward the sky than the emotion. Her home is filled with the welcoming symbol of the pineapple and finds surfing a challenge though she likes to think she’s a pro.

Review: Behind The Bars By: Brittainy C. Cherry

Review: Behind The Bars By: Brittainy C. Cherry

Amazon Link: https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B077WXFYNL/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1512657991&sr=8-1&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=behind+the+bars+brittainy&dpPl=1&dpID=51kmOaFRZ%2BL&ref=plSrch

While I was late to realizing the amazingness that is Brittainy’s stories I quickly caught up last year and now she is one of my auto one click authors. Here with Behind The Bars she gives us this beautifully told story of two people. Jasmine and Elliott meet on a street corner in New Orleans, he’s a musician and she is being forced into the industry by a stage mom who thinks she knows what is best for her daughter. They attend the same school but one is from the popular crowd and the other is bullied in horrific fashion. Yet, despite everything against them Jasmine and Eli have this bond. . . Reading about how the bullies pick on Eli was difficult to read about, so I was incredibly proud of Jasmine for finally putting her foot down and championing him.

But when young love is torn apart, and the unthinkable happens. The rise to stardom feels a little hollow. This part of the story, watching the events unfold, keeps you wrapped up in the story, flinching and heart bleeding for quite a few pages. It’s emotional guys. . . Be prepared for that one because your heart will shatter right along with Elliott’s.

6 years have passed since Jasmine and Eli were torn apart and their reunion. . . Well let’s just say it’s an event. It’s electric, fraught with emotion and gives you that tingle in your soul when you read a scene that is just magic contained within paper and ink. The setting and music gives an additional pulse to the story and makes it almost a character in its own right. I have always wanted to visit New Orleans and just get lost in the melody and Brittainy gives us that ability with this story. . . It’s so vividly detailed and vibrant.

After they are reunited things are not a easy go for our favorite couple and we learn some important truths, as well as letting some burdens go. . . It all tells an all encompassing story of love, life and how the thrum of living flows through everything and that is the sweetest melody of all. This was another undeniably powerful read by Brittainy!
