Synopsis:

Welcome to McCall Farm, where two hearts harvested love and then life made its fruits bitter.
High school sweethearts Matt and Katy McCall fell in love behind the bleachers with a kiss. Life is easy and happy until Katy is offered a job across the country and Matt refuses to give up his family’s generational farm. They painfully part—one due to stubbornness and the other ambition. Years go by and the rift widens until tragedy brings Katy back home to the farm—and the man who still held her heart.
But home is not the same and neither is the man she left behind. Matt is on the brink of losing the precious farm. He’s angry at life, and the tragedy has left him feeling like half a man. The last person Matt wants to see is the woman who left him for a career he believed mattered to her more than he did—and gutted his heart on the way out.

Love's Bitter HarvestLove’s Bitter Harvest by Jas T. Ward

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow, what an incredible story. Love’s Bitter Harvest brought forth so many feels. Anger and sadness being at the front. I want to be very careful with this review not to say too much. If you’ve read the blurb, then you already have a good idea of the premise. While, in my own heart, I believe all the circumstances of what happen stem from Katy leaving. As the story goes on, I see that there were also other elements to blame such as miscommunication, lack of respect and a huge amount of stubbornness. You will hear a lot of, “You left me!” & “You didn’t ask me to stay!” At the beginning, I completely blamed Katy. She was so wrong, and it did appear to me that she didn’t love Matt enough to stay. As I read on, I understood that pride took a huge role in the halt to their seemingly perfect marriage. By the end, I liked Katy but still couldn’t forgive her for leaving the way she did. Don’t get me wrong because Matt could have stopped her, could have gone after her or answer her first phone calls at any time. He didn’t. So, while Katy was the initial break in their marriage, I feel that because of stubbornness and pride (on both parts) things could have been settled a lot sooner and Matt would not have been where he was on the night of his accident. Again, this is only my opinion. I can’t help the way I feel.

This is the first book I’ve read by Jas T. Ward. As a blogger, many releases pass my desk and I try to read the blurbs on all of them before I post the release to my followers. I do this because I don’t want to miss out on a great story. After reading the blurb for Loves’s Bitter Harvest, I purchased it immediately. Even before I hit publish on my blog.

This is one of the best written books I read this year. I won’t soon be forgetting these characters or the obstacles they faced getting back together. This author has a way of tugging at your heart, giving you the experience of being there rather than just reading about it. I want to warn you that there are many heartbreaking moments; I constantly prayed for a miracle. Matt had so much more to deal with than the aftermath of his accident. He also needed healing in his heart. He needed someone to help him see his flaws. By the end of the book, Matt’s growth as a character made me so proud. He also made me sad for the things he felt he needed to give up. Katy and Matt’s journey has quite a few obstacles in the way. There are misunderstandings and pride that seem to always be a factor. I am not going to give away the end of the book. The last chapters were so satisfying and despite me wishing more for Matt and Katy, I was happy for them. They were truly happy and, in the end, that is all that matters.

I can’t wait to read another book by this author. Her writing talent truly appealed to me as a reader and I’m looking forward to more.

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

Synopsis:

He’s only got one shot at hooking her heart

Red Aldean has his sights set on his longtime friend, Emma, who seems more interested in her regency romances than dating. A renowned river, adventure, and fishing guide, Red is no stranger to a challenge. With his heart on the line, he turns to his trusty Texas guide to fishing—all he needs is patience, a plan and the perfect bait.

Last Stand librarian Emma Corbyn prefers to find her romance in books. It’s much safer. While she’s not set on perfection, she needs honesty. When larger-than-life Red Aldean starts wooing her, Emma can’t help but let her guard down. And even this bookworm can’t ignore the sizzle that ignites when he’s near.

Emma feels like she can trust Red with her heart, until she learns he’s keeping secrets. Does Red need a better lure to reel in the prize of his life?

My 📝Review📝: 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Red Hot Texan (Corbyn Sisters of Last Stand, #1)Red Hot Texan by Katherine Garbera

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A brand-new series featuring many of the Last Stand residents we have come to love. Red Hot Texan is Emma and Red’s story. Beautifully written with all the feels and scenery of Last Stand, Texas; this book was so good.

I’m in love with Red Aldean. I knew from the first pages that Red was not going to be the typical alpha, cocky hero. Red was confident in most aspects of his life with the exception of his attraction to Emma. In that aspect, all his vulnerabilities were showing. Red is an outdoorsman, literally. He runs an outdoor excursion company where he takes clients fishing, hiking, canoeing, etc. He is a tough as nails, sexy, strong, brave and loyal man. But when it comes to Emma, he is afraid. He wants her in his life very badly. Since they were children, Red had a bit of a crush on Emma. But in the last year or so, Red wanted to be her everything, because she was his. I will say, I loved his approaches toward Emma. He was adorable.

Emma is not ready to give her heart away due to issues from her past. But being with Red has her giving away pieces of it gradually. For the most part, these two characters are honest with each other about their feelings. Emma made some decisions, I didn’t approve of, making her seem selfish even though I understood her reasoning. She wasn’t being fair to Red. Red, on the other hand, had a secret. It was a big one and could definitely destroy what they were building with each other. As a reader, you will learn what that secret is pretty early on in the book. Unfortunately, Red keeps putting off telling Emma, claiming it wasn’t the right time. And well, you can probably guess that situation doesn’t go over well in the end.

I won’t give away the ending because it was so perfect for this story. As always, I enjoy reading books from this author and look forward to her next in this series. I definitely recommend this feel good, sweet story. You will adore Red!

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

Synopsis:

Imagine lying in a hospital bed and the doctor who pulls the curtain back to treat you is the one who got away. Even if you never really had her in the first place. She’s not only your high school crush, she’s the ex-girlfriend of your ex-best friend. The one girl you’ve always wanted.

Here’s a step-by-step list to finally win her over…

Key to win #1: Try not to take offense that she snuck back into town without telling you—six months ago.
Key to win #2: Rekindle the friendship to ease the awkwardness. But… DO NOT enter the friend zone.
Key to win #3: Ignore the fact that she went speed dating the night before. Take it as good a sign—maybe she’s looking for a relationship.
Key to win #4: Attempt to keep the two of you out of the town gossip blog and away from your large family.

Make sure you don’t let this last one throw you off your mission.

Key to win #5: Don’t get deterred when you find out the past is about to repeat itself. Because the man she met at the speed dating night is your best buddy from work.

Just remember, you sat back and let her slip away once, you won’t do it a second time. Failure is not an option.

Winning My Best Friend's Girl (The Baileys #8)Winning My Best Friend’s Girl by Piper Rayne

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

If you’ve been reading this series then you know who Kingston is and like me, have been waiting impatiently for his book. From book one, I have had a strong curiosity about Kingston. Why does he stay away so often? Why does he have such a dangerous job? Why is he a daredevil? All these questions and more kept me looking for his name thoughout the previous books. Each book gave us more but not enough so that by the time his book came I was so excited.

Kingston is one of nine siblings in the Bailey family. Despite him being away a lot, this family loves each other unconditionally and are beyond loyal to each other. The Baileys have a sad past and each sibling deals with that heartbreak in a different way.

Stella was always the love of his life. From childhood, he knew she was special and was heartbroken when she didn’t choose him. I won’t go into details but I will tell you their relationship turned angsty in high school and got more complicated into adulthood. Both Stella and Kingston are amazing characters. The authors did such an amazing job writing their story and engaging me so deeply I felt I was a part of it. I’m not going to say Kingston and Stella were perfect but they were perfect for each other. Of the two, Stella was the one with the most reservations. Their growth together was unstable and unsure. At times, I wanted to be on those pages and talk some sense into Stella.

As I said, I am not going to give away any spoilers. Because if you are like me then you waited a long time for this story. You should go into it just as I did; excited and eager. Winning My Best Friend’s Girl is one of my favorite books in the Bailey’s series. There is one last book to go and I am so excited for that one too. Not only because I want Sedona and Jameson’s story, but because I am hoping the authors will finally confirm who is the author of Buzz Wheel is. I have my suspicions but could be wrong, lol.

My recommendation is not only you read this book, but read the series from the beginning. I promise you won’t regret it. In addition, reading all the previous books will up your enjoyment a hundred times more.

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

About the Author:

A self-proclaimed reader enthusiast, Kristy started her writing journey back in 2009, reading and writing when her daughter was napping. Establishing her place in Corporate America (because something had to pay the bills), writing became her dirty, late-night secret.

After eight long years, she released her debut novel, Commander in Briefs. It was a long road, but she can honestly say, the road less traveled had the most beautiful sights.

The only thing Kristy Marie loves as much as reading and writing is sports! Especially those that require muscles and a nice ass. Her favorite is, and always will be, baseball. She’s such a fan, that she even married her small town’s high school’s centerfielder where they still live with their three badass kids.

Secrets of the World's Worst Matchmaker (The Baileys, #7)Secrets of the World’s Worst Matchmaker by Piper Rayne

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Being a huge fan of Piper Rayne and particularly this series, I have anticipated Juno and Colton’s book since the very first Bailey Book was released. From the first Book, which is Austin’s story, we are introduced to a bit of the dynamic of Juno and Colton. Are they just best friends? Are they more but keeping it a secret? And most importantly…Why are they not a couple yet? The author gave us some insight into the whys in Secrets of the World’s Worst Matchmakerhowever it was nothing I hadn’t already guessed. Even the situation with Colton and Brigette did not end up surprising me. The author went back in time to give us glimpses of Juno and Colton as they grew together. I wished there was more. I felt as if something was missing. I really hate saying this because I love the Bailey’s so much and am such a huge fan of Piper Rayne but I can’t help feeling this book was rushed or not given enough thought. Conflicts resolved too easily; there wasn’t a lot of angst and I felt a lot of the book was predictable. Please don’t misunderstand. I enjoyed reading Juno and Colton’s story and it was well-written but from the first chapter, I felt there could be more for these two characters. This is just my opinion and you should make your own. I did have very high expectations going in and I expected more angst and drama.

While I kept going back in forth in my head about my feelings for Juno, Colton was amazing from the start. Of all the heroes I have read this year, Colton is one of my favorites. His patience and kindness as well as his loyalty to Juno were beautiful. At times Colton did come off a bit sappy but that was one of the traits about him I loved so much. He deserved a happily-ever-after and I was so relieved when he finally got it. So, all that being said, I did not hate this book; I’m glad I got to witness Colton and Juno finally become a couple. The last pages of the book give us glimpses of what’s to come. And from those bits into Sedona and Kingston’s stories, I am suspecting a lot more angst. I’m not sure which book will come first but it doesn’t matter to me. With only two Bailey siblings left, that means this series is going to be over and that saddens me. The Baileys have been one of my favorite series and I hate to have to say goodbye. If you haven’t read any of the books, I recommend you do. I would also start with book one as you will have a more enjoyable reading experience.

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

I, Ainsley James, am crazy.
Desperate and crazy.
It’s the only explanation as to why I’m nauseous, standing outside Maverick Lexington’s door.
I mean, it’s possible the stories about his deck of playing cards—with the words IOU scrawled across the back—are just rumors of the ruthless quid pro quo deals he barters.

IOUIOU by Kristy Marie

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Fantastic! Not sure what I expected after reading the blurb. But let me tell you that this book was a pleasure, an unpredictable literary surprise.

Falling in love with a book is such an amazing experience but when you can equally adore both main characters, you have the best of the best. As I said a couple of sentences ago, after reading the blurb, I truly couldn’t guess where the premise was taking me. Again, another plus for me in finding a great read. And if those alone aren’t enough reasons to read this winner, read on and I will give you more.

This year thus far has been tough on me physically for a few different reasons, the last being the COVID-19 virus. I know that has affected so many of us in different ways. While I was sick, I was not able to read. I was constantly dizzy and tired. If I even tried to read, the words put me to sleep. More than once one of my family members removed my Kindle from my chest as I slept. To make matters worse, when I was finally able to stay awake long enough to read, I could not focus at all. I wasn’t able to comprehend a single sentence. But I am doing well now and trying to catch up with everything. Reading was a very entertaining and engaging experience. I haven’t read as many 5-star books this year as usual so I was ecstatic reading Kristy Marie’s latest. All the feels and emotions are present. Unpredictability was another. There is some suspense and angst as well as a supportive secondary cast of complex characters that I know Kristy will treat us with books for. Let’s not forget humor, sass, and intense chemistry and attraction. All aspects of this novel were original. IOU is one of my favorite books to date. This author has always given me everything I look for in a novel and this book has that and spades. (no pun intended. You’ll have to read to see what I mean).

I am sorry but I refuse to give you even a hint of what Maverick and Ainsley are up to in this book. One of my favorite aspects of reading was my constant guessing. I promise you will love IOU and highly recommend it to everyone who loves a sassy, but independent heroine and a broody, alpha hero who will keep you glued to every page.

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

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?

My 📝Review📝: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

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:

Tragedy brought us together, but something stronger made me want to stay.

Julian was the boy next door. My brother’s best friend, he fit with my family in ways I never could. While he and Rhett went on to play house, I left the only life I knew, desperate for a fresh start.

Until everything changed.

Heartache came along, and the aftermath of my brother’s death was here to stay. I was now face to face with Julian more than I ever wanted to be.

Being around him brought up all my insecurities, forced me to deal with hard truths, and conjured up feelings I had no business entertaining. He wasn’t the man I thought I knew. He was complex and layered, and inherently beautiful in all the ways I’d never noticed.

Not on another person.

Not on another man.

Not until him

Without YouWithout You by Marley Valentine

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Absolutely amazing! This author blew me away and that doesn’t surprise me one single bit. Marley Valentine can write heartbreak like no body’s business. This, hands down, is my favorite book of hers. Brilliantly written with such obvious attention to detail. The author takes this story to a colossal level of poignancy and you have to wonder, because of that, how will she give us the happy ending we desire. Well, she accomplishes that and so much more. Without You is an unforgettable story of two amazingly beautiful people. Behind their broken and tormented hearts are two men who deserve the world. And while they will find love, loyalty, and undoubtedly happiness, Deacon and Julian’s journeys a very difficult one.

While you can infer much of the premise from the synopsis, there is so much more going on mentally and even morally. Guilt is heavy within Deacon and Julian’s hearts and the path they need to traverse is difficult as well as unfamiliar. While the relationship development is a slow burn, it needed to be that way for this book to be believable.

I am being purposely vague with my review as there is so much complexity and depth to this story. I will not ruin any of it for you. If you have read any books from Marley Valentine before, then you know she will give you an amazingly written story with all the feels. If you haven’t read her books before, I highly recommend that you do; whether you are a fan of MM Romance or not. This book was very far from smut. It was beautiful.

One more element I want to add is that once I started this book, I knew it was one I wanted to savor and not devour. I purposely took my time reading it over the course of a few days so it could be with me longer. I cried in relief and happiness after reading the last page. And I was so disappointed when the book was finished. That said, I know I will carry Deacon and Julian in my hearts for a long time coming. It won’t be easy to replace these characters.

Marley Valentine…..thank you for such an incredibly, touching and heartwarming novel!

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