Nuts by Alice Clayton

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.

Best Worst Mistake by Lia Riley

Can I just say I love author Lia Riley and her Brightwater series. Best Worst Mistake is the third book in the series and I quickly became caught up in Wilder Kane and Quinn Higsby’s romance. A touch a heat, a dash of heart and a nip of suspense made Best Worst Mistake a winner.

If I Were You by Lisa Renee Jones

If I Were You by Lisa Renee Jones is the first book in her Inside Out contemporary romance series. With darker sexual elements and comparisons to Fifty Shades (which I have not read), I was unsure, but so many of my friends loved this series, so I settled in and to my surprise devoured this in only two sittings. It ends with a cliffhanger consider yourself warned.

The Name of the Game by Jennifer Dawson

The Name of the Game by Jennifer Dawson is the third book in her Something New series and features a “haters to lovers” romance with a geeky professor who made me swoon. Dawson delivers heat and some role-playing that heated up the pages. Sizzling chemistry, humor and cupcakes had this reader melting.

Melting Point by Kate Meader

After reading Flirting with Fire by Kate Meader, the first novel in the Hot in Chicago series I was hoping we would get more of Firefighter Gage Simpson and Brady Smith the guarded, tattooed chef. The heat and humor from their first introduction had me craving more. Melting Point delivered their complicated, emotional and heated romance.

Just Say Yes by Alyssa Goodnight

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 Dreams by Robyn Carr

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.

Celebrate the Joy of Romance: Sustained by Emma Chase

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.
