Synopsis:

We barely knew each other back then. What kind of chance do we have now?

Twenty plus years ago, I shared a magical, tragic kiss with my secret crush. Silver was every girl’s dream–and I was a socially awkward rich girl. We lived on different sides of town and ran in totally different crowds. When we bumped into each other that fateful night, no words were spoken–our souls knew who we were to one another. But life rolled on and off to college we both went. Never to see each other again.

Until now.

When Silver steps back into my life unexpectedly, my world stops. His looks have only intensified over the years, and when he says my name “Gin,” for the first time again… I melt.

Is my dream coming to life for the second time?

SilverSilver by A.E. Gamrat

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

First, I want to tell you that I was on the fence between four or five stars. This book was written beautifully. Every word set the stage for great dialogue and the monologue gave me the perfect picture. I was there! I love being “in” the book, watching things unfold up close and personal. We all have heard of the expression, “fly on the wall.” Well, I felt like one. In addition, this is my first book by A.E. Gamrat. Though I have seen this author’s name many times, I never read one of her books. Yay for me to find a new author!

Silver and Ginny…..
These two, now forty-somethings, knew each other when they were in their late teens. Both had a crush on the other but circumstances kept them from doing anything about it. But they did have one moment that neither one has ever forgotten. Ginny went off to college they never saw each other again. Both living lives that could have been better. Almost thirty years later, they meet by chance and both realize in that moment that they wished they were more than the barely friends they were. While Ginny was free of her ex-husband and living on her own, she began to find herself; the woman she was always meant to be. I don’t want to give away too many details as you will want to experience these characters on your own. But I will say that at first, I wasn’t sure of my feelings for her. I know she went through a less than stellar marriage but she came off a bit winey and a little too independent. Of course, I understand the reasons for that having read the book but still, it made me a bit critical of her. After she reconnected with Silver, I truly worried, because of how she wanted to be on her own, that she might break his heart. But then as you read on, you’ll see that Ginny has many insecurities that Silver will have to help her overcome.

Silver is one of my all-time favorite 2020 heroes! He had such an amazing, lovable personality. Silver was determined that Ginny would not get away from him a second time, status be damned. As much as Silver was determined, he was vulnerable. Hence the reason I was afraid he’d unintentionally end up with a broken heart if he didn’t tread carefully.

Even though the chemistry and attraction was immediate, both Ginny and Silver’s relationship developed very slowly. And while I wished it would move a bit quicker, in the end I was glad that it didn’t. This book has so many realistic qualities and relatable moments for me. My strong connection was to Silver. If he was a woman, he would be me.

There are a great deal many secondary characters in Silver. Ginny has two amazing friends that I can’t help but to wish a happy ending for. Maybe one day in the future we’ll get to read about them. This book is one I definitely recommend to my friends.

This is my honest and unbiased opinion. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

NKAS teaser excerpt (1)

Synopsis:

Kiki

Ellis Atwood is the devil. Ok, maybe that’s too harsh. Ellis Atwood is ruining my life.
First, he demolishes a perfectly good wedding trellis.
Second, he destroys a gorgeous doggie wedding that I spent ages planning. (I kid you not.)
Third, he makes me feel all warm and fuzzy, and that is not ok. I prefer the cold and harsh way my fiancé makes me feel so much better. (wait, that didn’t come out right.)
Fourth, and there is a fourth, he gets me all wound up and flustered.
And last, when he unexpectedly kissed me it made me forget my own name, or the fact that I’m getting married…in a month.
Please someone help me out. I’m a mess.
Worst part is, Ellis isn’t the bad guy I first thought he was.
And being forced to spend time with him is making me realize that he needs my help more than anything.
So what’s a girl like me to do?

Ellis

I’m only in town long enough to figure out a plan with my brother on how to save our brewery from the awfulness that is my father. Oh and be in a wedding.
Where I may or may not be crushing a little too hard on the bride-to-be. (spoiler alert, I’m crushing hard.)
She’s really cute. Like seriously.
And she has the cutest job, she’s a dog wedding planner. (I kid you not.)
I can see why Henry loves her.
I can see why everyone loves her.
I can see why I’m falling for her.
I’m usually not a relationship-type guy. Call it picky or whatnot, but usually I get bored easily. So, my plan is simple. Spend as much time with Kiki (soon to be Faniki, I know) and hopefully get bored with her adorkable smile and sexy legs that go on for miles.
Then, I can save the brewery, be the best man of the wedding, and get my butt back to Atlanta and away from the happy couple.

Never Kiss a StrangerNever Kiss a Stranger by Logan Chance

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Originality, humor, endearing characters and the most adorkable novel I’ve read in a long time, if ever. Off the top of my head, I can honestly say this book does not compare to anything I’ve read in a long, long time. Never Kiss A Stranger was so much fun to read and the perfect distraction to what we as a country have been dealing with these past weeks. Including myself, my entire family has been sick which was the only reason it took me several days to read this amazing book. My head was so foggy, I just couldn’t get through it in one sitting. I can only imagine how much more I would have loved this book; when I am 100% feeling better, I want to read it again.

I know I always say this but this author has never written a book I haven’t loved. The fact he can write perfectly in any romance trope and genre is a gift I wish more authors had. I don’t need a synopsis, teaser or beautiful cover to know I’m going to read his books regardless.

So, this book? Yeah, you might want to read it in a private corner without your family constantly asking, “what’s so funny” or “why are you blushing?” I am a huge fan of romantic comedy and this book was one of my all-time favorites. A lot of authors can successfully write romcom, but that number is few and far between if you’re looking for a laugh out loud, adorkable book that will cause second-hand embarrassment and the most lovable couple, ever! Logan Chance gave me everything in this novel and I more than recommend it. I’m telling you; you need to read this book!

Without giving any spoilers, I’ll tell you that Kiki and Ellis’ first meeting set the stage for an incredibly fun story. And if you wondering about cheating, there is none! This book has a touch of angst to give it a more realistic feel. The pace is steady and the words flow smoothly. There are a few secondary characters that I wonder if we’ll see in the future. In addition to a great story, the author takes us to Florida, specifically Jupiter. I have been there before years ago and I enjoyed visiting again through Logan’s storytelling. Florida is literally my second home and if you’ve never visited, there is so much to do and see aside from the theme parks. Hey, if you’re interested, you can arrange a dog wedding with Kiki. 😉

We need more books like Never Kiss A Stranger.. Don’t make a mistake; grab this book. If fact, if you do, I’d love to chat about it with you!

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

Synopsis:

Isabelle “Izzy” Harmon is home again. Literally. After landing her first teaching gig, Izzy has found herself sleeping in her old room on an ancient twin bed that squeaks whenever she moves. Sure, she loves Honeywell, Iowa but part of her wanted to move to civilization rather than return to her old life after graduating from college. Farm life is in her blood but so is the man who lives next door. It’s too bad he never saw her as more than his best friend’s little sister.
It’s true what they say… distance makes the heart grow fonder and four years away did nothing to quell the way Izzy’s heart rate doubles whenever he’s nearby. She hoped to get over it, but things don’t always work out the way we hope.

Nashville “Nash” Watson never left. His goal of playing baseball in the majors flew out the window the second he found out he was going to be a father. No regrets, though, because Nash figured he’d return to Honeywell, Iowa to farm his family’s land. It was the only thing he knew for sure. Well, that and he’s never falling for another woman again. Ever.

Never say never, Nash.

Due to sexual content and adult themes, this book is suitable for readers 18+.

My 📝Review📝: 🌟🌟🌟🌟

FarmBoyFarmBoy by Kayt Miller

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

For a novella, this book has a lot of feels. And when it was over, I found myself disappointed that this book wasn’t longer. That said, since I’ve been sick the past three weeks with my head dizzy most hours of the day, it actually was the perfect length for me. This is an author whose name I have come across many times but haven’t read. I’m so glad I read her. I will be looking back at her catalog for more.

It isn’t easy writing a novel; it’s even more difficult to write a short novella and put in it everything that a reader desires. For me, Farmboy had a good amount of angst, complex characters, and an entertaining story. Notice how I said, ‘complex characters’ and not likable ones? While I adored Izzy and Andi, Nash was a whole other story. He was definitely hard to like throughout much of the book for me. Of course, I inferred he would end up being the perfect hero, and was not disappointed when he let his walls down. He was truly romantic and loving, protective and sweet as well as sexy. I couldn’t help but love him.

I am not going into details, especially since this story is short and fast paced. I don’t want to spoil anything. I will tell you that there is plenty to keep you engaged; turning pages. If I haven’t been sick, I could have definitely devoured this in one setting. I recommend this book to anyone looking for a quick read that has character development, angst, and a believable love story.

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

Synopsis:

You can’t go home again.

Devlin Braxton never thought he’d test those words and return to Braxton, Texas – the town where generations of his family had ranched honorably. Not him. As an undercover agent who spent years infiltrating the underbelly of a drug cartel with a local pipeline, everyone thought he was the devil-may-care, good-for-nothing, playboy he pretended – even his family. After the massive bust and the shoot out that nearly killed him, Devlin is ready to discover who he is and where he belongs.

Marissa Flanagan has fought for her place in Braxton. First she had to live down the pity and gossip when she was jilted by her fiance, then prove her professional worth when the town’s beloved – and male – vet retired. She’s finally made her peace or so she thinks until Devlin Braxton shows up at her door with a proposition.

They have a past, will Devlin’s blue eyes and pulse-stopping kisses convince her he’s changed and that they might have a future?

Her Secret Cowboy (Blood Brothers, #3)Her Secret Cowboy by Debra Holt

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Her Secret Cowboy by Debra Holt is the third book in the Blood Brothers series. I have read book two but still have to read book one. And I am definitely going to read that. While all three books can be read as a standalone, you will have a fuller reading experience if you read them all in order. This is an author I have read in the past. I’ve always enjoyed her stories and this series is no exception.

From the first book, we are aware of Devlin. And in the second book, he is mentioned once again. Unfortunately, Devlin is the victim of “don’t believe everything you hear” or see for that matter. Truly, things were not what they seemed and Devlin was not who everyone believed him to be. I won’t go into specifics but you already know from the book’s blurb that he was an undercover agent. Devlin is finally home after a life-altering injury. Not only does he feel like he doesn’t belong, he is also defending his character. Devlin, first and foremost, just wants love and respect from his family. He wants to be forgiven for his desertion and finally call someplace home. But it isn’t until he meets Marissa that Devlin will discover he wants more out of life. He wants Marissa. Devlin wants a happy ending.

Marissa is a guarded character. I really liked her and completely understood her cautiousness where Devlin was concerned. This book is not a fast, instalove story. Devlin and Marissa will have to overcome many obstacles to find their happily-ever-after. And as I watched these two wonderful characters find their way in life and with each other, I couldn’t help but to root them on.

This book was sweet but angsty too. I recommend you add this book to your TBRs. As I mentioned earlier, you can definitely read this as a standalone, however, you’ll enjoy it more if you know a bit more of everyone’s back story.

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

Synopsis:

Hot Navy SEALs? Check
A secret baby? Check
Finding love the second time around? Check

The Navy SEAL’s Secret Baby
When curvy Sophie Chambers walks in on her boyfriend cheating on her, she drowns her sorrows in tequila. Lots and lots of tequila. When she wakes the next morning in bed with a man who’s name she can’t remember, she does the only thing she can…run.

Navy SEAL David Marshall is celebrating his retirement when he stumbles across the woman he’s been dreaming about for two years. The attraction is still hotter than ever. When she drops a bomb on him, he’s determined she won’t get away this time. Not when she’s the mother of his child.

A Second Chance at Love
Callie Foster never expected to feel such a strong connection to the sexy former SEAL her friend introduced her to. She only thought about having a little fun now that she’d regained her confidence after surviving an abusive relationship. Except he pushed her away.

Kyle Harper barely survived the war, returning home with one less limb. He begins a brief affair with a gorgeous nurse, but breaks it off knowing it won’t go anywhere. She’ll only leave him like everyone else in his life. When he runs into her a few weeks later, he realizes what a fool he was.

SEALs in LoveSEALs in Love by L.K. Shaw

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

There are two standalone novellas within this book. While the characters are all present in the first book as a way of introduction, their stories are separate and unrelated. I equally enjoyed both stories. Some of my favorite tropes include ex-military. These characters have a good amount of baggage and that makes the story more complex and the endings even more delicious.

Four people believing they aren’t destined to find love. Each has a bit of baggage but nothing too heavy. The heroines are somewhat insecure and hesitant to allow themselves to take down the walls around their hearts. The heroes, specifically Kyle, is very protective of his heart. When the four of them come together. each in their own ways, they all realize they found something special. But the real question is…..will they be brave enough to take a chance on forever or risk losing the best thing to ever happen to them.

There is not a lot of character development because of the short length of the individual novellas. The attractions are instant and strong. That said, I enjoyed how the author drew out the relationship development a bit so the book didn’t have that stereotypical lust/love at first sight feeling. At least it didn’t for me. In addition, there is some angst and emotional feels. Each couple had a different story which did not tie into the other. I also appreciated that individuality. One more plus for me is that I discovered a new author that I will definitely check out in the near future.

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

Synopsis:

Small town. Big secrets. Welcome to Sweet Ridge.

Grayson Cooper is livid when he learns his father left him a keychain with a strawberry charm rather than ownership of the successful Guac Ole company. He’s been groomed for this position since he escaped the factory floor as a teen and joined Jack in the corporate offices. But what good is the CEO title without the stock shares?

College dropout Becca Nash is dumbfounded to learn that she now owns controlling voting stock in the company where she’s just a line supervisor. The pay bump will help her take care of her mother’s nursing home care, but the corporate halls intimidate her–and who wants to hobnob with those snobs anyhow?

Stymied at every turn by her attitude, Grayson tries to steal back those shares, but surprisingly loses his heart to Becca instead. What he does discover is a secret that could blow apart not only Becca’s world but his whole family. With so much hanging in the balance, Grayson must decide whether it’s better to follow his head or his heart.

Sweet Texas Charm (Sweet Texas Secrets, #3)Sweet Texas Charm by Robyn Neeley

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Oh, how I am sorry to see this series end. This three book multi-author series has all the feels and more. Each book has its place it my heart for a different reason. In Sweet Texas Charm by Ruby Neeley, the last Cooper brother will finally receive the entirety of his promised inheritance. The Cooper patriarch was a sneaky one, but full of love, caring and hope that his sons would find their forever-after with their “ones”.

Middle brother Grayson was beyond hurt and angry when he discovered his father did not leave him the family company that Grayson was promised. In fact, Grayson felt betrayed not to mention a whole lot of confused. From the first book, there is an element of mystery that will find its resolution in this book. By the end of book two, I had my suspicions as to what the big reveal might be and I enjoyed watching my predictions come to light. This is where I can’t tell you anymore about that; you’ll just have to read to find out. Each book is a standalone however, I believe you won’t enjoy the complete reading experience if you haven’t read the two prior books. There is definitely a lot going on.

So, I had my opinions of each brother’s persona at the beginning of each book. And it’s not surprising that I wasn’t a fan of any of them. But as I got to know them, I understood them in a different light. However, with Grayson, he did some things that were not upstanding and I just knew karma was going to come for him.

The heroine, Becca, was one of my favorites of this year thus far. She was very relatable and I saw myself in her during several fundamental moments in the book. I could see myself in her shoes very easily as well as see things her way. Again, I’m not going to spoil anything by giving away spoilers. I enjoyed this book and was sad to see the series end. The author’s attention to detail and storytelling talents show through in this book. I love a book where I don’t have to try so hard to envision a scene. With this book, I was easily there.

So, glad I read this series. You should know that each story flows into the next without any disconnection despite this series being written by three different authors. I recommend the Sweet Texas Secret’s series to any reader who loves romance with some angst and mystery AND a huge helping of happily-ever-after!

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

Synopsis:

New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Jane Porter kicks off her brand new cowboy series with a modern twist on an old-fashioned way of finding a wife.

After the only woman Joe Wyatt ever loved marries another, the Montana rancher swears off romance. He’s done playing the game. Only problem? He needs a wife, and kids he can pass the Paradise Valley cattle ranch to. So Joe takes the same no-nonsense approach to marriage as he does to running his family’s business…he places an online ad for a mail-order bride. The ad is a lot like Joe, straight-forward and to-the-point: Wife Wanted.

When Sophie Correia is left at the altar after her groom runs off with her maid of honor, she wants to get as far away from California and her dairy farming family as possible. Sophie doesn’t need hearts and flowers, but she’s fed up with men who can’t commit. And at thirty, she’s more than ready to start a family. When she comes across Joe’s ad, she thinks she’s found the perfect solution — head to Montana, get married, and move forward.

Can a contract for marriage lead to love, or will the arrangement cost them their hearts?

Montana Cowboy Romance (Wyatt Brothers of Montana Book 1)Montana Cowboy Romance by Jane Porter

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Let’s face it….the title alone screams predictable. And you know what? That is fine by me. That said, while there aren’t many surprises, I thoroughly enjoyed this novel. The characters were my favorite part of the book. Not just the main H/h, but any secondary character that showed up made the story better.

I have read so many Montana Born novels from Tule Publishing that I’m a bit embarrassed to say I can’t remember every character, every story. But in many of the books, we will get an on page visit or mention of past characters from past books. And that always puts a smile on my face. In particular, I have read many books by Jane Porter. Her writing is very relatable to me and I easily connect with her characters whether or not, we have commonality. This book was Joe and Sophie’s story. The best part? There are two more Wyatt brothers that will get their chance at love. I am looking out for those books. I wonder what those premises will be.

I am not going to go into the specifies of this story as the blurb says it perfectly; as I mentioned earlier in this review, that a lot of the book is easy to infer. I most definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a refreshing, sweet story with likable characters and an endearing happily-ever-after.

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

She’s just what the doctor ordered… but never knew he needed

U.S. Marshal-turned-Sheriff Taylor James can trace her family back to the original thirteen Marshals appointed by George Washington. She’s good at her job, but once they find out she’s the local law, she can’t get even one of her dates to stay past the appetizers. Her plan? Convince good friend and hot neighbor Dr. Gabriel Adams to give her dating lessons since his dance card is always full.

A survivor of childhood leukemia with no guarantee his remission will last, Gabe lives by two rules: Don’t get emotionally involved and don’t let his well organized life spiral out of control. When he’s given a baby, with his name on her birth certificate, he needs Taylor’s help. But dangling dating lessons in exchange? If that will get the dedicated sheriff to lend a helping hand, could it be a bargain worth making?

The Sheriff's Baby Bargain (Angel Point, #1)The Sheriff’s Baby Bargain by Susan Lute

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Oh, wow!
I just loved this book! While some of the story was a little predictable, there were original elements that were new to me. I honestly thought the ending might go a bit different from how it actually did. And while that was just a teeny bit disappointing, I found after reading the last page, that I couldn’t have been happier that Gabe and Taylor found their happily-ever-after. I finished this book several days ago and this couple, this book is still on my mind.

All the characters in this story added more complexity and enjoyment for me. Especially Daisy and Rose. And while there were plenty of secondary characters, that fact did not take the spotlight away from Gabe and Taylor. The synopsis of this book does a good job letting you know what to expect but the talent in which this author weaved this story made The Sheriff’s Baby Bargain so much more. There was some angst, suspense and even some guessing on my part. I don’t want to say there are dark elements to this story, but there is a bit of a cloud shadowing all the happy. As, I mentioned, I wasn’t 100% sure how this book was going to end. But I’m so pleased with how it did.

This is the first in the Angel Point series. I am so in love with this small, enchanting town and I can’t wait to see what comes next. I definitely recommend this sweet romance!

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

Synopsis:

He’s country… she’s city.
She’s Northern Irish glam… he’s Texan cowboy.

Summer Brady has partied hard for the last time. After countless warnings, her mother intervenes.
Learn a life lesson, Summer.
Get a job, Summer.
Earn your own money, Summer.
Survive in the middle of nowhere… Heartville, TX.
A tall, muscular, hot as hell rancher was not part of her mother’s plan, even if the handsome cowboy denies their electric connection.

Hayden Taylor is perfectly happy being single after his last failed relationship. Wild Heart Ranch needs all his attention, not the pretty Northern Irish woman his father hired to clean their house. She’s temptation wrapped up in tight jeans and a sexy accent. But she’s a temporary addition to the ranch, and his life. The clock is ticking until she flies back home.

Is home where the heart is…

Will an ocean keep them apart, or will true hearts win?

You will love this sexy romcom with plenty of steam because true hearts always find a way to be together.

Can be read as a standalone. No cliffhangers.

Wild Heart (My True Heart, #1)Wild Heart by Autumn Archer

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Hayden Taylor and Summer Brady…..

The first thing I need to express is my adoration for Hayden. Not only was he hard-working, sexy, intense and intimidating cowboy, Hayden was a gentleman. He was considerate and so sweet when it came to Summer.

The blurb for this book gives us a very good depiction of the premise. A city girl from Ireland, Summer, is sent to Texas to live with her mother‘s uncle for a couple of months. Her mother has gotten sick and tired of Summer always partying and being irresponsible. Summer is basically living a shallow, self-centered life and all she cares about is when and where the next party will be. Of course, she is not happy to be sent all the way to Texas from Ireland; it is a punishment she feels she does not deserve. I have to tell you after reading this book I completely agree with Summer’ mother. Summer did need this to find perspective and maybe learn to be a less self-centered and grow in maturity.

Hayden works hard for a living on his family’s ranch with his dad. It is a life he loves, a life that gives him satisfaction and contentment. I enjoyed the setting of the ranch and the dynamic between Hayden and his dad as well as the dynamic between Hayden and his friends. There was plenty of wit and banter between the characters in this book which brought more enjoyment to my reading. I have to say it again…I loved Hayden.

While some aspects of the story are predictable I still enjoyed it and I am looking forward to the next book in the series, which will feature one of Hayden‘s friends and I suspect Summer’s friend who comes to Texas for a visit.

The one small disappointment I had with this story is that I felt Summer was very immature. Even when her character developed into a better person I still felt like she was too young for Hayden. That could just be my feelings and you should read this story to decide that on your own. Also, In the beginning chapters Summer was hard to like. Besides her beauty, I couldn’t understand what Hayden saw in her. But as each day went on their relationship grew and developed into strong feelings for each other.

The authors did a good job with giving me an enjoyable story and a new book boyfriend. By the end of the book I grew to like Summer’s character and I was happy with the way things turned out. I am looking forward to the next book in the series.

This is my unbiased and honest review. Thank you for taking the time to read it.
