THE THING ABOUT LOVE by Julie James delivered a “haters to lovers” FBI undercover romance. The tale filled with banter, snark, and heat, also delivered an equally balanced case that left me smiling. Friends, family, and agents added to this delicious romance making me yearn to return to this Chicago field office.
The Wild Aces series by Chanel Cleeton has been one I have thoroughly enjoyed. On Broken Wings, the third book in this series shares Easy’s story. I knew going into this tale it might require truffles. As predicted I cried like a baby, even as I smiled. Come meet, Alex “Easy” Rogers your next book boyfriend
Shut Up and Kiss Me is the second novel in the Lost Boys series by Jessica Lemmon. The romance was delivered in dual narratives and provided a breath of fresh air to the New Adult genre. With its likable characters, low angst and feel-good story Shut Up and Kiss Me delivered the perfect escape.
The Trouble with Mistletoe by Jill Shalvis is the second book in the Heartbreaker Bay series. A fickle cat and a sexy carpenter shake up Willa Davis’s holiday. Jill Shalvis will make you giggle, sigh and swoon when we learn if Christmas wishes come true.
I was excited to begin The Sexy One by Lauren Blakley as it still delivered a male POV narrated by Sebastian York but this time we also have a female POV narrated by Andi Arndt. Blakely’s romances are sexy, adorkable and always manage to make me smile as they tug at my heartstrings
To Love and to Cherish by Lauren Layne is the final book in the Wedding Belles and oh, what fun it was! This is Alexis Morgan’s story and there has been a build up throughout the series with a certain British accountant. Layne delivered with this romantic ride!
Do You Want to Start a Scandal by Tessa Dare is the fifth novel in the Spindle Cove series and I absolutely adored our heroine Charlotte Highwood. Intrigue, passion and a swoon-worthy guarded rake can be found within the pages who could ask for anything more.
Wow. The Hating Game by Sally Throne was not even on my radar until the publisher contacted me. When I read the synopsis, I knew that I had to make room for it. The following day I read a review from a fellow blogger and began to get excited. Little did I know I was going to begin a “five cups of coffee” romance, the kind that leaves you with a killer book hangover.
A Scot in the Dark by Sarah MacLean is the second novel in her Scandal & Scoundrel series. Filled with banter and snark McLean delivered a delicious romp.
To Have and to Hold by Lauren Layne is the first full-length novel in the Wedding Belles series. It’s a brand new contemporary series set in New York featuring highly successful wedding planners and their individual romances. I am already drooling in anticipation for one of the gals’ romances. A little humor, sweetness and a pinch of angst delivered the perfect recipe for romance.
