Just Say Yes by Alyssa Goodnight is a contemporary romance with a touch of magical realism. It will appeal to foodies and offers up something different from Browncoat to pop culture references and it is sure to make you smile. Unique characters, growth, friendship, humor and a sweet, slow-building romance made Just Say Yes a winner.
Wildest Dream is the ninth novel in the Thunder Point series by Robyn Carr and sadly my least favorite. I have enjoyed getting to know the folks in this Oregon seaside community and will miss them. While this books wraps up threads and gives us updates on townsfolk we also get to see Lin Su Simmons and her son Charlie find their own little slice of happy.
August is Read-A-Romance Month and a few of my fellow #XOxperts* and I are celebrating the Joy of Romance. A special thanks to Victoria @ Arts Books & Coffee who has mad social skills and coördinated everything. Check out my review of Sustained by Emma Chase. This is the second book in her new Legal Briefs series but it works as a standalone. I adore Chases’ writing. Her character Drew Evans from the Tangled series is one of my favorite bad boys but, I might just cheat on him with Jake Becker. Enjoy, enter the giveaways and then be sure and visit the other stops.
Shadows Strike was a stellar addition to the Immortal Guardians series by Dianne Duvall. Heat, intense action scenes and strong characters had me completely immersed in this world. Shadows Strike is the sixth novel in the Immortal Guardians series and can work as a standalone, although there is an overall story ARC between good and evil. I started this series with the fourth book and will eventually start at the beginning. *glares at TBR pile*

Heart-warming, suspense and a romance laced with banter, tender moments and a dash of heat Her Lucky Cowboy by Jennifer Ryan had me lost within its pages. I am in love with the Montana Men series. Big Sky country, sexy cowboys and strong woman with a touch of suspense make these contemporary romances delicious. Her Lucky Cowboy is the third book in the series and one of my favorites to date. While this is part of a series feel free to jump right in as each book deals with a new couple.
The novella Sideswiped by Kim Harrison introduces us to the characters and world of her new series the Peri Reed Chronicles. This science fiction suspense thriller sheds light on the concept of drafting. A small percentage of the population has the ability to move back briefly in time. Other humans can act as an anchor preventing the drafter from becoming trapped.
Have I got a yummy recipe and book recommendation for you today! The Conquering Dark by Clay & Susan Griffith is the third book in the Victorian-era urban fantasy Crown & Key. Today’s recipe inspired by the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling and my recent trip to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure in Orlando Florida. Grab a cup of Earl of Grey and a Jammie Dodger and enjoy!
Mildred’s Resistance is the third book published in the Networking Series but events in the story actually take place before Miss Mabel’s School for Girls. Katie Cross gave us a full-length novel sharing the rise of Mildred to High Priestess. If you read Antebellum Awakening, you will be curious to note this book was given to Bianca to read by Councilor Stella. I loved getting the history and a more indepth understanding of some of the powerful players in this world. Brilliant and engaging, Mildred’s Resistance is a must read for fans of the series.
Tough Love is the third book in Lori Foster’s Ultimate series and after the proposal Vanity Backer made Stack “The Wolf” Hannigan in Holding Strong, I have been anxious for their story. Foster delivered and their romance was hot, sweet, humorous and filled with delicious banter and teasing.

As I sit here preparing Caffeinated’s 4-year Blogoversary post I find it hard to believe that four years have passed so quickly. I started blogging in August of 2011 and had absolutely no idea what I was doing. Friendships, personal growth and the community have made the journey joyous and I look forward to many more years. I hope you will join me in celebrating. Last year I did a scavenger hunt and it was a blast. This year I am going to go easy on you and just say “Thank You.”
