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.
Just Say Yes by Elizabeth Hayley is the second book in this writing duo’s Strictly Business series and it had everything one looks for in a romance. While this is the second book, and we do see, the other couples both work as standalone. Just Say Yes had me swooning, reaching for truffles and laughing aloud as I hugged the pages.
Every holiday I try to read at least one Debbie Macomber holiday themed romance and this year I chose to listen to Dashing Through the Snow: A Christmas Novel narrated by Allyson Ryan. At just under 5 hours, Macomber delivered an interesting read where two strangers share a ride from San Francisco to Seattle. Toss in a case of mistaken identity, a puppy and an overzealous FBI agent and things get downright interesting.
Today I am sharing two holiday reads that will curl your toes and pull at your heartstrings. A Bad Boy for Christmas by Jessica Lemmon, an author I get enough of and Unwrapped by Katie Lane. This was my first read by Katie but it will not be my last. Go grab some hot cocoa and settle in for my reviews. You are going to want to snuggle up with these titles.
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.
Illusion by J.S. Cooper is the first novel in the Swept Away series. It is a mix of romance and suspense as it follows Bianca London who is kidnapped and marooned on a deserted island with a stranger. Heated and laced with mystery Illusions was an interesting story with a lot of potential.
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.
I love books about large, loud families and was excited to dive into Cecy Robson’s, O’Brien Family series with the first book Once Kissed. I immediately slipped into this story and giggled when I learned how this second chance romance began. Once Kissed earned a spot on my favorites of 2015 list.
