baby yours-eBook-Complete (1)

Synopsis:

The worst day of my life happened when Brandon died.
We had our entire future mapped out.
Careers, marriage, kids—in that order.
Then the universe threw a curveball and ended it all.

As I come to terms with everything, I learn I’m carrying his baby. Now I’m living with his roommate, the guy who’s made my life a living hell the past two years. Hunter’s now the one to hold me up when all I want to do is fall.

Knowing my religious parents will never accept the pregnancy out of wedlock, Hunter offers to be my fake husband. While I think he’s gone crazy, it’s the only plan that’ll keep them in my life. So I do whatever it takes to make our relationship believable—kissing, touching, even letting him hold me when we sleep. The lines are so blurred neither of us want to admit we’re no longer pretending.

The guilt of what we’re doing eats me alive as I struggle to deal with my emotions. I push him away, but he pulls me closer, showing me how he’s always felt.

Just as I begin to follow my heart, I learn Hunter’s been keeping secrets.
And I’m left to make the hardest decision of my life…

**This is book 2 in the Hunter & Lennon duet and must be read after Baby Mine. Recommended for ages 18+**

Baby Yours: Hunter & Lennon, #2 (Roommate Duet, #2)Baby Yours: Hunter & Lennon, #2 by Kennedy Fox

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is one of those times where I love the book but not so much the heroine. Hunter saved this entire duet for me. Let me explain. So, you obviously read book one if your here. If not, stop reading now because there are likely spoilers for the first book in my review. As I was saying, I did not like Lennon in the first book; barely tolerated her until the last chapters of the book. Hunter wasn’t perfect either but I was understanding towards his reasons. It could likely be my opinion only, but I absolutely hated what Lennon put Hunter through.

Hunter was a strong character. Saying he is loyal to a fault is an understatement. There were times I was so frustrated with how he let Lennon run hot and cold and didn’t once complain.

So, getting to the cliffhanger at the end of book one. When the book started, I expected the story to continue right at that moment but it didn’t and I did not mind that at all. I wanted these two to have a bit of fun for once and when they got to Utah, they did exactly that. That part of the book was sweet and in my opinion, the moments where Lennon and Hunter’s relationship started to become something more. Unfortunately, Lennon continued her hot and cold behavior with Hunter after they returned home to California and this broke my heart. Of all the heroes I read this year, his character is one of my favorites. Not only was he there for Lennon during all the rough times, but because he wanted to be as close to her as possible he put his own heart through an emotional ringer. I love him for his loyalty, perseverance, and patience, and protectiveness. A less better man would have walked away a long time ago but Hunter kept on hoping and believing that things would work out.

The rest of the book is a slow burn. I appreciated this aspect because like the development of their friendship into more, it had to be a slower pace to be believable. And it was. By the end, I believed in them as a couple. I believed in Hunter and Lennon’s happily-ever-after.

I’ve always enjoyed this author duo’s writing and I will continue to come back for more. The next duet in this series will feature Mason and Sophie. I have been rooting for those two from the start. I can’t wait to see how these two will find there HEA. Knowing these authors, it will not be easy.

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

Synopsis:

This dating experiment is about to go viral…

Jameson
When my eight-year-old son starts asking question about love, I decide to use a magazine article on how to woo a woman to prove, once and for all, that romantic love doesn’t exist. Companionship, habit, mild fondness, sure, but not that thing called love. I have my hypothesis ready and I’m dead set on experimenting on my new neighbor, the single mom who does the weirdest things.
But my experiment goes awry in unexplainable ways…

Lily-Marie
When dating apps fail me spectacularly, I decide to go old school and use a 1950s magazine I dug up at a yard sale to help find Mr. Right.

Fifty Ways to Find a Husband.

Sounds legit.

Problem is, my new neighbor, Mr. Science Professor, keeps blocking my attempts. And keeps losing his shirt. How does a book nerd have so many muscles anyway? Thing is, my kids like his son and we start spending a lot of time together, which is distracting me from my ultimate goal: to find a husband to sweep me off my feet and be a good father to my kids.

Things get comical quick when my best friend records everything in her daily newspaper column. I can’t help but wonder if single moms like me can actually catch a husband. Or will this Mom-Com go viral as an epic train wreck?

📝My Review📝:

Mom-ComMom-Com by Marika Ray

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Oh, I love this book! I can say I have never had the pleasure of coming across a book like this. Finally, a premise I haven’t ever read! Also, Marika Ray is a new author for me. I will have to check out more from her because this book thoroughly entertained me. So much so that I could not put this book down and read it in one sitting. Even better is there will be another book featuring the heroine’s best friend.

So, I love everything about this book. Every aspect. While yes, it became a little predictable, I did not mind. Especially while I knew something funny was about to happen, I wasn’t sure exactly what is was. There are some totally cringe-worthy moments that forced second hand embarrassment on me and I loved every minute. Unfortunately, because this book was pretty fast-paced, I felt like it was over too soon. I needed more! Both H/h were the epitome of awkward and endearing characters. Even the secondary characters made this book more likable.

Jameson and Lily-Marie were so adorable. I couldn’t stop laughing at their behavior. I can promise you this book is lighthearted and enjoyable. I can also promise you laughter and the most amazing grand gesture. Our hero may be awkward and clueless when it comes to romance but he was truly one of the most endearing characters I have ever had the pleasure of reading about.

I definitely recommend this romantic comedy. It’s a well-written, fast-paced entertaining read!

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

Synopsis:

No, prima donna ballerina Jessica Carmichael isn’t interested in the rough-and-tumble rodeo cowboy she met in physical therapy. In fact, she’s actively uninterested in his cocky smile, and his go-with-the-flow attitude, and how his silly little bets make her work harder than ever to fix her knee. She’d like nothing more than to strangle him, if she wasn’t so busy thinking about kissing him.

Matt Walker’s best hope of getting back in the saddle is charming Jessica into teaching him ballet. He needs to get back on the bronc…even if he has to get there in tights. Only the uptight ballerina lives in a completely different world, one he wouldn’t touch with a ten-foot mechanical bull. But maybe the one thing she needs more than control is to lose control for once—with him.

📝My Review📝: 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Cowboys Need Not ApplyCowboys Need Not Apply by Robert Tate Miller

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was my first book by Robert Tate Miller. I enjoyed it and would like to read more from this author. I describe this book as a low angst, clean romance. The story was entertaining and the characters were fun and witty, with the exception of Jessica, one of the protagonists. Jessica was not the friendliest. I would describe her as standoffish and pretentious. She is a ballerina brought up in a wealthy household so this has shaped her character. I was not her biggest fan for most of the book however, I appreciated how her character grew and developed into someone I could like as the story moved forward.

Matt was fun and witty, if not stubborn, from the beginning. While he was the complete opposite of Jessica in personality, they had good chemistry and I enjoyed watching their relationship develop. If I’m honest, which I am, Matt was the true hero of the book. It was Matt that helped me to enjoy this story. As I mentioned earlier, Jessica was not very personable as well as difficult to like. But by the end my opinion changed.

Briefly, I’ll tell you that both Matt and Jessica injured themselves doing what they each loved. Both ended up with similar knee injuries and at the same rehabilitation center. It was here they first meet. I won’t go into details because you should experience their relationship without any spoilers from me. While their friendship started off slowly, I enjoyed watching them together. Each had something to teach the other and this helped grow appreciation for their respective careers and what shaped them to be the people they are.

There were times, I wondered how Matt and Jessica would work in the end. They both had completely different personalities; completely different lives. In addition, they lived 2,000 miles from each other. Thankfully, though, they did work it out in the sweetest happily-ever-after.

As I understand it, this trope was new to this author. I want to say, I think he did a great job and I would love to read more, especially regarding cowboys. 😉

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

To Love a Prince (The Prince Duet #2)To Love a Prince by Nana Malone

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I still can’t believe I only recently read my first books by this author. I have some serious back-reading to do. This author is very talented with romantic suspense, adding in a few twists and turns to keep us on our toes. In this book, I won’t lie, I did predict the end. That’s just me, though. Once I know there is a suspense plot, I am reading between the lines until I can figure it out. Still, I wasn’t 100% sure until later on in the book. To say I can’t wait to read more about Royal Elite is an understatement.

That said………
This is not a standalone. To Love a Prince is the completion of The Prince Duet. I absolutely loved the intrigue and mystery weaved into Ariel and Tristan’s story. These two have massive chemistry. In the first book, Ariel and Tristan are reunited. However, it is not a joyous reunion. There was conspiracy that tore them apart. Ten years! It took ten years for these two to have the deserved happily-ever-after they deserved. Hopefully, you read the first book and already know that Ariel and Tristan are together. But things are not entirely what they seem. There are still dangers and manipulation trying to ruin their happy-ever-after.

So, this is where I have to tell you that you’re going to have to wait to read this on your own if you’re looking for more details from me. Truthfully, there isn’t much more I can say without possibly spoiling this book for you. I can tell you, there is more suspense, intrigue, & danger to keep you on your toes. Right up to the very end!

If you haven’t ever read any of this author’s books, I want to tell you her writing talent is amazing. The writing flow is steady and her books are easy to devour in no time at all. I definitely recommend Nana Malone for you future reading enjoyment.

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

His Sun Drop (The May Flowers Series)His Sun Drop by Dee Ellis

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Oh how sweet! His Sun Drop is one of the May Flowers series of standalone romance from the Flirt Club authors.

I haven’t had the chance to read them all but I definitely am interested in reading more. In His Sun Drop we get to experience the love of Emmet and Sunni. Because this is a quick read, I won’t give any spoilers. I will say that I adored this couple. The way they first meet, or should I say see each other, was so romantic. At least I believe so. Imagine in a sea of endless faces and the heavy sounds of traffic, you are drawn to the person truly meant for you. That one instant moment where you know your life is going to change. A connection like no other.

Emmet and Sunni are cute together. Their relationship moves fast and is intense. Of course there is just enough angst to make their relationship realistic. Neither Sunni or Emmet are perfect characters; each has their own insecurities. My only complaint about this book was that it was over too soon. If you’re looking for a short, sexy read with an intense hero and the woman who makes him complete with a HEA, I recommend His Sun Drop

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

Synopsis:

A game of pretend with the highest stakes of all in the latest novel of breathtaking romance from USA Today bestselling author Caitlin Crews

Ty Everett ran off to the rodeo when he turned eighteen and has been riding bulls ever since…until his last fall causes partial amnesia and he must return to Cold River Ranch to figure out what comes next. But how can he pick his next move when he can’t remember how he got here in the first place–much less the beautiful woman who appears at the ranch, claims she knows him, and warms his cold heart for the first time since he woke up in the hospital?

Rodeo Queen Hannah Monroe gave up her crown for Ty Everett, and her innocence. What she wants from Ty now is a divorce. But Ty can’t remember her–or their secret wedding, or even the son she never meant to hide from him–and Hannah is torn. How can she leave the man she can’t forget and still loves despite herself? And even if she’s willing to start over, what will happen when the truth comes out?

📝My Review📝: 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Cold Heart, Warm Cowboy (Cold River Ranch, #2)Cold Heart, Warm Cowboy by Caitlin Crews

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

After reading this entire book, I decided 4 stars was a fair rating. To be honest, up to the last quarter of the book I found myself very frustrated with the amount of inner monologue. I have no problems with being inside a character’s head and knowing what he/she is thinking. Unfortunately, this book did not have a good balance of monologue verses dialogue. For example, our heroine would ask a question and it was literally pages later where the hero answered. By the time I got to the answer, I had to re-read because I couldn’t remember the question. This happened throughout most of the book. Also, this was my same issue with the first book in the series. Thankfully, the last 25% of the book moved faster and I was able to enjoy the story more and forget my frustration.

So, despite that issue, I did enjoy the book. The characters were complex and flawed. Both the H/h had emotional stress to deal with. I will say that Hannah was a hot mess and I completely understood why. Seriously, if the love of my life could not remember I existed I don’t know that I would deal with it as well as Hannah seemed to. There were many other conflicts in the story added by secondary characters, for instance, Hannah’s mother. Those character conflicts helped me to enjoy the story more. That said, while I complained about writing flow, etc., I did overall enjoy Ty and Hannah’s story. I’m going to read the next book which features the last brother, Brady, because despite my complaints I’m invested I the happily-ever-after of this family.

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

Companionship, habit, mild fondness, sure, but not that thing called love. I have my hypothesis ready and I’m dead set on experimenting on my new neighbor, the single mom who does the weirdest things.
But my experiment goes awry in unexplainable ways…

Lily-Marie
When dating apps fail me spectacularly, I decide to go old school and use a 1950s magazine I dug up at a yard sale to help find Mr. Right.

Fifty Ways to Find a Husband.

Sounds legit.

Problem is, my new neighbor, Mr. Science Professor, keeps blocking my attempts. And keeps losing his shirt. How does a book nerd have so many muscles anyway? Thing is, my kids like his son and we start spending a lot of time together, which is distracting me from my ultimate goal: to find a husband to sweep me off my feet and be a good father to my kids.

Things get comical quick when my best friend records everything in her daily newspaper column. I can’t help but wonder if single moms like me can actually catch a husband. Or will this Mom-Com go viral as an epic train wreck?

📝My Review📝:

Mom-ComMom-Com by Marika Ray

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Oh, I love this book! I can say I have never had the pleasure of coming across a book like this. Finally, a premise I haven’t ever read! Also, Marika Ray is a new author for me. I will have to check out more from her because this book thoroughly entertained me. So much so that I could not put this book down and read it in one sitting. Even better is there will be another book featuring the heroine’s best friend.

So, I love everything about this book. Every aspect. While yes, it became a little predictable, I did not mind. Especially while I knew something funny was about to happen, I wasn’t sure exactly what is was. There are some totally cringe-worthy moments that forced second hand embarrassment on me and I loved every minute. Unfortunately, because this book was pretty fast-paced, I felt like it was over too soon. I needed more! Both H/h were the epitome of awkward and endearing characters. Even the secondary characters made this book more likable.

Jameson and Lily-Marie were so adorable. I couldn’t stop laughing at their behavior. I can promise you this book is lighthearted and enjoyable. I can also promise you laughter and the most amazing grand gesture. Our hero may be awkward and clueless when it comes to romance but he was truly one of the most endearing characters I have ever had the pleasure of reading about.

I definitely recommend this romantic comedy. It’s a well-written, fast-paced entertaining read!

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

Her Texas Ex (The Dangerous Delaneys Book 1)Her Texas Ex by Katherine Garbera

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

While I thoroughly enjoyed this sweet second chance romance, I have to say it was very sad. My heart hurt for most of the book. I won’t go into details but I can tell you there are some intensely heartbreaking moments.

Amelia and Cal had a brief relationship when they were in high school. And while they could have had an incredible relationship, Amelia left town for good reasons. While I understood her reason for running, I didn’t approve of the way she left. Of course, I have never had to be in her shoes so I can’t be too critical. I will also say while I absolutely loved the man Cal became, I did not care for Amelia. She was a hot and cold character and I found her selfish most of the time. Clearly, she had issues to deal with and I believe she should have handled them BEFORE starting anything with Cal. Cal had a hold of my heart throughout this whole book. He has suffered through unimaginable tragedies and still remained an amazing person. Cal was, selfless, loyal, protective and was capable of strong feelings. I found him to be a gentleman. A sexy, lovable gentleman.

I’m sorry to say it took nearly the whole book for Amelia to get her act together and that was a little disappointing to me because I felt that Cal deserved so much more. The enjoyment I experienced within this book had mostly to do with Cal and the secondary characters. I love romances that are set in small towns. You can be sure that at some point, everyone will have their own book.

As I am already a huge fan of Tule publishing authors and books and loved the Montana Born novels, I know I have a lot of great books to look forward too with the Texas Born series.

I am looking forward to the next book in the Delaney series. I believe that will feature Finn.

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

Happy couple under the rain

Synopsis:

I might be the one who swore an oath to save lives, but they saved me…

Saving lives isn’t just my job, it’s my whole world. Working eighteen hour days, I live in the hospital, running from patient to patient until I encounter a mysterious woman who stops me in my tracks. Afraid of her own shadow, I quickly diagnose that not all of her injuries are physical and the helpless look in her eyes turns my world upside down.

I follow up with her, trying to convince myself that my actions are that of a concerned doctor. But it’s more than that… turns out there is more to her as well. She’s a single mom, and the fear in her eyes isn’t just for herself, but for her amazing daughter. Before I even realize what’s happening, I’m determined to save them both and it has nothing to do with oaths or medicine. First, she will have to trust me. Not just with her life, but her heart.

** TRIGGER WARNING: This story contains mention of physical and emotional abuse. Although no abuse takes place during the story it is described, at times, in detail. **

Save MeSave Me by A.J. Alexander

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was so intense and emotional. The characters were amazing, and I just adored Sophie!

Recently, I read my first Andi Jaxon novel and loved it. So much so that I will be adding some of her books to my summer reading list. With the exception of holiday romance, summer reading is my favorite time of the year. It’s the one time I promise myself to knock off books from my TBR, and read for pure pleasure. Not that I don’t do that already, but being a blogger/reviewer, I read many ARCs. Oh, please don’t misunderstand because I love to read for authors however, I like to just kick back and read my own selections too. Hence, one reason why I look forward to the summer.

That said…..This was my first collaboration read from Andi Jaxon and AJ Alexander. I know, right? Where have I been hiding? Under a rock, apparently. Nevertheless, I am so happy I read this book. Now I can’t wait to read an exclusive AJ Alexander novel.

This book was, for me, a darker read than I am used to. I’ll be honest, I avoid books with heavy physical abuse. (*please note, if you read the blurb that you already know that the majority of physical abuse is talked about but not actually on the pages) It breaks my heart too much. But this book came across my blog and after reading the blurb, I just knew I had to read it. Both authors did a great job at weaving this story, making it believable and giving us a well-deserved happy ending. Yes, karma is a queen not to be messed with!

I’m not going to give away any details. Not even the smallest hints. This is a book that you need to go into without too many spoilers so you can appreciate everything good that happens. It will only make the ending so much sweeter. I will tell you that the secondary characters (well not all of them) were charming and and added not only depth, but some humor to a story that is angsty and intense.

I recommend this fast-paced read. As I mentioned earlier in my review, I am looking forward to reading more from both of these authors, exclusively and collaboratively.

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