Oh baby, wait until you meet the Dempsey family! Flirting with Fire is the first in Kate Meader’s Hot in Chicago series. She delivered a sweet, humorous, hot, and heartwarming romance all while introducing secondary characters whose books I cannot wait to read.
Fading Out by Trisha Wolfe
Fading Out is the third book in the Living Heartwood series by Trisha Wolfe. Even though I did not read the first two books I chose to dive in when the author assured me it worked as a standalone. Fading Out shares the romance that develops between Arian and Ryder. It isn’t an easy journey but they both find themselves through the other. Hot and heartfelt I quickly devoured this one.
Maybe Not by Colleen Hoover
Ya’ll know I usually skip all the prequels and novellas between books with very few exceptions, but after reading and loving Maybe Someday –I just had to have Warren and Bridgette’s story. Thus I picked up Maybe Not by Colleen Hoover. I am so glad I did because- Warren, Warren, Warren. The man is hilarious, sweet, and yeah ridiculously swoon-worthy.
Come to Me Recklessly by A.L. Jackson
Come to Me Recklessly is the third book in the Closer to You series by A. L. Jackson and while it will work as a standalone. I recommend reading them in order. Jackson has taken us on quite the ride and I was anxious for Christopher Moore’s story. It has been obvious throughout the series that Christopher is avoiding painful issues of the heart and in Come to Me, his past meets his present. The tale was emotional, heartwarming and bittersweet. Despite a personal hurdle for me, I enjoyed Come to Me Recklessly and all of its feels.
Take a Chance on Me by Jennifer Dawson
Take A Chance by Jennifer Dawson is the first in her Something New contemporary romance series, and each can be read as a standalone. If you remember back, in December I shared my thoughts on The Winner Takes It All by Jennifer Dawson and that I had not realized it was the second book. I bought Take A Chance immediately and thanks to Take Control I dug it out of my TBR pile and oh lordy am I glad I did. I have one-word for you folks: Mitch.
When It’s Right by Jennifer Ryan
When It’s Right by Jennifer Ryan is the second novel in the Montana Men series and folks I am lovin’ it. The series has a small-town vibe, a little heat and each book deals with a Bowden brother..Yee-ha! Ryan blends suspense into the tales and does it all in Big Sky country. I loved this as much as the first novel. My only struggle is deciding which brother I love more.
