ARC Review : Jett – Sawyer Bennett

ARC Review : Jett – Sawyer Bennett

As always, Sawyer Bennett’s hockey stars and the person they fall in love with grabbed me from the first word! Jett is fine, and I loved how persistent he was with Emory when she appeared to not be interested. Jett is a very tender romance in many places, especially because Emory is a single mother. In fact, she turns out being everything Jett thought he would never want, which just made their story even better in my opinion. Emory was very gun-shy, with good reason, and the readers and Jett learned of those reasons little by little. Each time I thought Jett would turn around and run, he surprised both me and Emory by being understanding, caring, and even loving <3 […]

ARC Review: The Mama Diaries – Belle Brooks

ARC Review: The Mama Diaries – Belle Brooks

The Mama Diaries is the book all mothers need in their life. Belle Brooks has a fantastic sense of humor, and in The Mama Diaries, she truly shone that humor on all the hard times mamas can have in the day-to-day life of raising their beloved children. Tantrums, puke, poop, love, hugs and more – it’s all part of being a mama, and it was beautifully (and very funnily) depicted in this novel. I loved that the four women, Tracey, Mia, Anna and Haddie, met and hit it off from the get-go. They all needed some friends, and The Mama Diaries showed that women can be so much stronger together. Building each other up, having each other’s backs, and simply […]

Review: Reel – Kennedy Ryan

Review: Reel – Kennedy Ryan

Reel is a beautifully written realistic romance with characters that feel so real you think they are a part of your circle of friends before the story is over. Kennedy Ryan did it again! I’m sure Reel will become a bestseller, and it already has all the necessary ingredients for a wonderful movie as well! The story is character-driven, which is my favorite kind of story. The narration starts in the past, then follows Neevah and Canon in the present – with snippets of Dessi’s life through the movie. Reel has not only made it onto my favorite 2021 shelf, it’s also on my all time favorite shelf! I would recommend this story to all romance lovers, but even more […]

Review: Love In Secrets – Scarlett Cole

Review: Love In Secrets – Scarlett Cole

Love In Secrets is a perfect friends-to-lovers story, with a ton of chemistry, a whole lot of heat, and a little heart-ache. Love In Secrets is one of those stories where I loved everything! I loved the characters and their back stories. I loved the setting. I loved the romantic elements between Cassie and Jake. And most of all, I loved that Cassie was so true to herself. From start to finish. Cassie had to come back home urgently after her dad was in an accident, and her old friend Jake came to pick her up at the airport. He comforted her and let her stay at his place. What neither of them expected were the sparks. And the chemistry […]

Review: The Girl With Stars in Her Eyes – Xio Axelrod

Review: The Girl With Stars in Her Eyes – Xio Axelrod

The Girl with Stars in Her Eyes is an amazing story, following Toni B from when she was only twelve years old. I don’t even know where to start with The Girl With Stars in Her Eyes! Axelrod did amazing with this novel, that’s for sure! The characters were very realistic, and my feeling were involved from the beginning. Toni knew the backside of fame, and she wanted nothing to do with it. Toni’s hopes and dreams were crushed more than once. First when her mom sent her away to look for fame on her own. Then, when her dad, Mo, didn’t really seem to care about having her around. Finally, when Seb up and left without telling her – […]

Review: The Iron Raven – Julie Kagawa

Review: The Iron Raven – Julie Kagawa

The Iron Raven features Puck as the main character, and I feel like I have waited for his book since forever! What a pleasure to be back in Kagawa’s fairylands once more. And even more so to learn much more about Puck, and how he was often somewhat an outsider, but one who wanted to fit in – at least sometimes. There is trouble in Faerie, and this trouble is so big it might just be too much for Puck, the Iron Fey, and a new possible ally to fight the good fight. The Iron Raven shows a different side of Faerie, now that there is a specific place where the Forgotten have taken up residence. Ethan as their champion […]

Review: No Holding Back – Lori Foster

Review: No Holding Back – Lori Foster

No Holding Back is the first book in a new series by Lori Foster, and it blew my socks off! Sterling and Cade were intriguing and realistic characters I loved getting to know. No Holding Back is about a strong female character, Sterling, who had been through literal hell when she was in her late teens. I have a trigger warning on my Goodreads review just in case… However, using her earlier trauma as a strength in order to fight evil is what she does. Not only does she do it well, she also works alone. Sterling is not a trusting person, but she always feels good when she goes to Cade’s bar after work. It’s the only place where […]

Review: Archangel’s Sun – Nalini Singh

Review: Archangel’s Sun – Nalini Singh

In Archangel’s Sun, an Archangel who is known for being strong, and an artist who is thought to be weak have to fight the reborn together to save the world. Archangel’s Sun in which Singh so totally did it again! I have loved her Guild Hunter series from the start, and even now, after all this time, it keeps getting better with each book! I mean, Brandee, my co-blogger (or blogger-wife) and I face-timed tonight, when I was at around 60% through the novel, and I kept telling her that Titus and Shari were screaming at me to hang up with her and keep up with their story 😉 Shari is the Hummingbird – Illium’s illustrious, artistic, but apparently broken […]

Review: Lies and Lullabies – Sarina Bowen

Review: Lies and Lullabies – Sarina Bowen

Bowen totally did it again! Lies and Lullabies is a fantastic story – where there is a meet cute at first, and then, a few years later a possibility of a second chance. When Jonas and Kira first met in Lies and Lullabies, they formed a nice friendship that felt safe for both of them. They both tried to ignore the strong attraction and the hot chemistry between them, and it worked. Mostly. However, on Jonas’ last night there, Kira managed to persuade him to let her have her way with him. And what a glorious way it was! Lies and Lullabies is much more than a romance, though, because there is so much hurt in both Jonas’ and Kira’s […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review: Bossy Brothers: Tony – J.A. Huss

Blogger Wife Chat Review: Bossy Brothers: Tony – J.A. Huss

Tony blew my mind! I loved how things really weren’t what they seemed, and also the fact that we were back in Fort Collins with characters from prior Huss stories in the background. I, too, loved how Huss took us in a direction we weren’t anticipating (although, is that really unexpected with her?!? LOL) and it was PERFECT. And being back in FoCo was like coming home. 😉 I loved that Tony could surprise me and that this book took a direction that was not exactly unexpected, but rather unconventional. What is your first impression, Wifey? I was definitely surprised by the direction this story went but thrilled at the same time. In the EOBS, Huss said that she took […]
