As Good As New by Jennifer Dawson is the fourth book in the Something New series and I devoured it in one sitting. I love second chance romances and Dawson delivered. As Good As New had a swoon-worthy tormented hero, family and a sizzling hot romance.
Today I am excited to share Renegade and Desperado by Lisa Bingham, the first two books in her Taggart Brothers series. Yep, I said BROTHERS and you know how much I adore series based on brothers. Did I mention they are cowboys? Yea-ha. First up is Renegade the second and newest book in the series. Both books work as standalone but I encourage you to read them both!
What You Need by Lorelei James is the first novel in her Need You series and works as a standalone. What You Need introduces us to the Lund family, a successful and powerful family in Minneapolis-St. Paul who despite their wealth share similar problems when dealing with family and love. James brought unexpected depth and a sexy, nerdy hero to swoon over.
Fated by Sarah Fine is the final book in the Servants of Fate series. I listened to this series and loved the world and characters. This series was my first experience with Sarah Fine but rest assured we have begun a long-term relationship and I am eager to listen to her previously published books and the new ones yet to come. Brilliant, gut wrenching and action packed Fine did not hold back and Fated packed a punch.
November 9 by Colleen Hoover was an anticipated release for me and as an added bonus; it was the first book that my online book club, Caffeinated Book Club tackled. I adored the characters and the premise readily swallowing the little blue pill and falling for the events that unfold in November 9.
Ah, I love Jessica Lemmon and always manage to become caught up in the stories she writes. Fighting for Devlin the first in her Lost Boys series grabbed me from the onset and ready to save Devlin. Swoons, feels and heat made Fighting for Devlin the perfect evening escape.
Sinful by Jennifer Dawson is the second book in the Undone series. Sinful is a contemporary romance that delves into the dominant and submissive genre. What make Sinful unique is the depth Dawson brings to her characters and the realistic portrayal of this world. Wickedly hot and deliciously sweet, Sinful delivers a powerful romance with low angst creating a wonderful escape.
One King’s Way by Samantha Young is a novella that takes us back to the bar where the series On Dublin Street began and shares with us the romances of bartender Craig Lanaghan. Some of you may remember Craig and his outrageous flirting and smoking hot good looks. While this is #6.5 in the On Dublin Street series, this novella will work as a standalone.
Falling Into Bed with a Duke is the first novel in Lorraine Heath’s all new Hellions of Havisham series. Humor, strong characters and a little mystery romance made this devilishly good tale delightful. I love discovering hellions and strong opinionated heroines who know exactly what they want ..or maybe not. Lorraine Heath writes characters that you connect with and root for. Come meet Minerva and Ashe..I dare you not to fall for them.
I love romances filled with wicked banter, humor and food. Nuts by Alice Clayton combines all three with heat delivering a seriously fun romp. Nuts is the first book in the Hudson Valley series and it left me wanting to pack my bags and move to rural upstate New York in search of zucchini.
