 Waiting for You (The Holbrook Series #1)Waiting for You by Jasmine Stevens

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Stars

What a fabulous book given this is a debut novel. Before I get into my review, I want to mention that this author took nearly six years to get this book to us. I read the author’s note at the end of the book. Truthfully, after reading that, I could appreciate this book even more. While you are reading, you will feel this is a seasoned author. Jasmine Stevens poured her heart and soul in this novel, that fact being very obvious. Great word building, extremely complex and flawed characters and a happily-ever-after that was worked hard for. Lottie and Will’s story is poignant, complex, heartbreaking, tragic, and thankfully, the author threw in some humorous moments to give the reader some balance of emotions. Definitely has all the “feels.”

A childhood tragedy tore two best friends apart. Lottie and Will would be separated for eighteen long years. And truthfully, if it wasn’t for the fact that Lottie had to take care of the disrepair of her childhood home, she would have never come back to her home town of Holbrook. Her reasons were justified, although I will say that Lottie frustrated the heck out of me. To be honest, it took quite some time before I liked her. Will, I adored from the beginning. Lottie treated him poorly for most of the book, all in the hopes of protecting her heart. Will was persistent, though. He wanted to be with Lottie. As a child he loved her the only way best friends could. But seeing her as an adult changed his perspective. I want to tell you, there is a sad story here for these two. That said, at this moment, I can’t think of two characters that are so well deserved of a happy ending. I was rooting for them from the beginning. Though there were times I worried it wasn’t going to happen.

This book is angsty. And while there is great chemistry between Lottie and Will and a huge amount of tension, their intimacy was sweet. I wouldn’t call this a clean romance, but it was a tame one. Also, while the writing flowed nicely, I found some of the story to drag in places. Of course, I was getting impatient for my happily-ever-after, so it could have just been me. Regardless, I loved this book, I recommend this book to anyone who loves romance and I will definitely be looking for the next installment in Jasmine Steven’s Holbrook Series.

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

Synopsis:

I just published my first novel: Love Doctor. There’s one small problem—besides the fact it isn’t selling—my boss from Hell, Dr. Declan Sincock, Sex Therapist, was my muse. Let’s just say, I took some creative liberties with him…
I never thought he’d know about it.
And never in a million years did I think he’d read it.
But he has, and he’s not happy.
I should just quit, find a new job, but now I have another plan. Write what you know, right? Dr. Sincock is going to educate me on how to write hotter sex. He just doesn’t know it yet.

📝My Review📝:

 Love DoctorLove Doctor by Logan Chance

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was an absolute breath of fresh air. To tell you the truth, I am not at all surprised that I loved it. This particular author is one of my favorites for a very good reason. Logan Chance always entertains me. Love Doctor in particular, took me on a versatile, literary journey. I know that sounds cliche, however it’s how I feel. I started off laughing and ended the last page with a goofy smile. Another aspect I was impressed by was how obvious it was that the author did his research. Not just medical research. Each chapter began with a notable author’s quote. In addition, I loved the added bonus of “writing within writing.” This book was written with care and love. The author made that obvious.

Rose works for Declan as his assistant. Declan his a sex therapist and is very good at it. Is that profession his true passion, what makes his happy? Does he feel fulfilled in his life? You’ll have to read to find out exactly what makes his heart beat faster. Declan is cocky and confident. He is gorgeous and intelligent. He can also be a pain in the butt; Declan feels the same about her. Do you want to know my favorite aspect of Declan’s persona? It was his vulnerability. I can’t say enough how much I loved Declan. I am so thankful for the dual character perspectives. Being inside their heads, knowing their most private thoughts mad this book believable.

Rose is an aspiring writer. She is currently working on her first novel but criticism from a peer causes her to make some courageous decisions in order to better her writing. Apparently, her intimate scenes are quite lacking. I wonder who she will ask for help?

I’m not going to say any more, or give any more details. I can promise you, you’ll love this adorable, sexy, sweet, endearing story. I absolutely recommend this book and if you haven’t checked out this author yet, you’re missing out on some wonderful storytelling.

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

A Valentine’s Dream

Synopsis:

A Valentine’s Dream – A Curvy Girl Valentine’s Day Romance

Amy:

February 14th is just another day to me.

I don’t really believe in hearts, flowers, romance, or happily-ever-afters. And I certainly don’t think there’s a dream man for a curvy woman like me, even if my little sister had found hers over the holidays. I’m more realistic. Or at least…I was…until I met Levi Gillette during my sister Hayden’s wedding rehearsal dinner The man seems to have an annoying ability to make me lose my cool and calm facade. Yeah, he’s definitely hot, but my sister’s brother-in-law-to-be was also arrogant, infuriating, presumptuous, bossy, and most likely one big player because the man could be charming when he wanted to be.

No thanks! Been there, done that, and I’d had more than enough of men like Levi Gillette. But when I start having amazingly erotic, intimate dreams about him, it’s almost impossible to ignore him in the flesh.

In my dreams, it was like I’d known Levi forever.

But in person, I barely knew him, and he challenges everything I’d ever assumed about myself. We don’t even like each other, yet he feels so…familiar.

Finally, when the lines between dreams and reality start to blur, I have to wonder whether I can trust a guy like Levi with my heart.

I knew he was hiding something. There were things I didn’t know. I could feel it.

So when Levi finally reveals some hidden truths, I’m not sure whether to believe him, or run away as fast as my sneakers can put distance between us.

How can a woman like me, a female who has never had much faith in romantic love , suddenly believe in a A Valentine’s Dream?

Author’s Note: This isn’t your average, sweet Valentine’s romance. It’s an erotic, romantic fantasy sprinkled with some insta-lust/insta-love. But it IS a safe story. Guaranteed HEA, no cheating, and enough sweetness and heat to melt your Valentine’s Day chocolates. If you’re looking for a steamy, fantastical, curvy girl romance….read on. : )

Levi and Amy’s story…..
One thing I can say for sure is the premise of this book is one I haven’t come across before, with the exception of the prior book which is about Amy’s sister Hayden and Levi’s brother Jackson. Unfortunately, I cannot in good conscious explain the premise to you because that would in fact spoil a whole lot of this book for you. I can tell you that dreams do come true.

This book, was an enjoyable read. I liked Levi and Amy, especially watching their relationship grow. While they did have a history of sorts, they definitely needed time to figure out how to move forward. Levi was genuine. He was a gentleman and most importantly, I believed him. As different as the premise is, Levi made me a believer. Amy was a good heroine even though she frustrated me from time to time. That said, I understood her hesitation and wariness in giving her heart to Levi.
A Valentine’s Dream was a sweet and steamy read. The slow burn, scorching chemistry, and intense feelings were believable to me. I really enjoyed this book and I recommend it because not only is it sweet, it’s original.

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

Synopsis

I have a crush on Nolan Archer, Boston University’s freshman running back.
He’s the definition of tall, dark, and swoon worthy. My knees weaken every
time our eyes meet. There’s only one problem… he’s a virgin.

As much as I try to convince myself he’s too young for me, or that I prefer
experienced guys, I can’t deny the flames of attraction flaring between us.

When his fraternity brothers decide to auction off his virginity, it forces
me to make a decision.

Should I forget about Nolan once and for all, or place the winning bid and
be his first score?

Score by Jacob Chance

This is book six in the Boston Terrier series by author Jacob Chance. I believe this is the last book in the series and that makes me sad because there’s still more characters on the football team that I wish would get a happily ever after. However the author will be giving us a new series with BU’s hockey team players. You’ve already met a couple of those guys, specifically Clancy. I am really looking forward to his story. Not to mention the fact that I love hockey romance.

This book was a little bit different than the others in the series in the way that it takes place post football season and during the university’s Christmas break. However this is not categorized as a Christmas romance. While The playing of football is primarily absent in this novel, we got to watch a group of the guys having fun and just letting go. There was no drama. And for me, that was a treat.

Nolan is a starting receiver for the Boston Terriers and is a freshman. Personally I thought Nolan was a great character. He was sweet, loyal, hardworking and a considerate young man. A gentleman Despite being inexperienced and a little bit shy around Perry, Nolan knew how to treat people with respect while having fun and making the people around him happy.

I’m not going into details because you’ll want to experience all that is Nolan Archer on your own without any spoilers from me. I am going to say that the author did such a wonderful job scene setting. I felt like I was experiencing a winter playground. Nolan, Perri, and some of the guys got to play and just have fun without the stresses of classes. They were all having fun and I couldn’t stop smiling. One of the secondary characters, in particular, had my attention for sure. Flynn. Since I think this is the last we’ll see of the Boston Terriers football series, I felt a bit of disappointment that we won’t get a book for him.

The last chapters of the book were perfect. While I predicted most of what was going to happen, there was a nice surprise thrown in that I didn’t see coming. Do I recommend this book? Absolutely! In fact, this author has not written anything that I didn’t love. If you haven’t read anything in this series, you should. It is a perfect binge-read series.

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

Synopsis:

New Orleans firefighter, Caleb Moureu had to trade body shots and hot all-nighters for sippy cups and actual up-all-night fevers when his sister was killed, leaving his niece in his care. But two years in, he’s definitely got the hang of this fatherhood thing. Of course, he couldn’t do it without nanny-turned-friend and fellow single parent, Lexi. Because of her, things have always been pretty easy.

Getting pregnant and going it alone wasn’t in Lexi’s plans, but thanks to Caleb, she’s doing okay. He’s helped her out with everything from diapers to car repairs over the years. So, when she suddenly needs a place to live, of course Caleb steps up. After all, it’s only temporary. They’re just friends. It’s just a favor, like all the others.

But for now it really is, very, very nice.

Nice and Easy (Boys of the Big Easy, #3)Nice and Easy by Erin Nicholas

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was the second book I’ve read in this series. Of course I read them completely out of order but that didn’t matter. That only made me want to see how the other characters found their HEA. I found this novel intense and sexy. Caleb, the hero, was a particularly intense character Caleb was dominant in every aspect of his life; always having to be in control. There were a few times throughout the book where I was frustrated with his always having to be in charge. It was a good thing that Lexi loved him so. It also didn’t hurt that she was a submissive person and liked being taken care of. Truthfully, if she wasn’t so accommodating, I doubt she and Caleb would have made it. Don’t misunderstand me because Lexi was in no way a week character. I respected her and the author did a great job with helping me understand her.

Caleb has been raising his four year old niece for the past couple of years after his sister and her husband died in a car accident. Lexi is also a single parent. Both Caleb and Lexi have been helping each other out with taking care of the children while the other one is working. They have been doing this for a while now and it worked well. Until it didn’t. I won’t give anything away however I can tell you I loved watching their platonic relationship develop into something intense and magical. The author also does a wonderful job with taking Caleb and Lexi and letting us be able to watch then grow as a couple. I absolutely loved the slow burn, tension and intense chemistry between.

From start to finish I was rooting for Caleb and Lexi to find their happily ever after. The only complaint I had with this novel is that is was very heavy on monologue. Several times I had to reread because there was so much monologue between the dialogue and I couldn’t remember what the characters were talking about. I don’t mind a book with a lot of descriptive text, but I do need a balance between monologue and dialogue. Of course that is my preference and some of you may not mind it. Regardless, I enjoyed this book. I have always enjoyed this author and will continue to read her books.

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

Synopsis:

She wasn’t aware of her wet, clinging clothes. Her long hair, sticking to her skin. The melting hail or the dark night. She was only aware of one thing, and he was consuming her.

CONNOR REID is complex. An alpha, taller and stronger than anyone else, who has never lost a fight. But the truth is, this grizzly bear shifter is as sweet as a summer breeze and shy as a prairie dog. He never planned to stay in Shifter Town. Then something happened that rocked his world. Her name is LILY AMARETTO.

Lily hasn’t known much kindness in her life, and never from a man. When she accepts a job working for the scariest male she’s ever seen, it’s about survival and redemption. She doesn’t want to spend her life afraid of shadows, but did she really have to start with the most lethal man in existence? That’s exactly what Connor Reid seems like to her. But there are other new and indefinable feelings that he stirs. And the things he does to her in her dreams.

What do two shy souls do when they want each other badly, but aren’t quite sure how to make it happen? 

Shifter Town is about to find out… 

Bear Essentials is the fourth book in bestselling author Novalee Swan’s Shifter Town series. It features her trademark heat and emotional intensity and is perfect for fans of Nalini Singh, Lora Leigh and Shelley Laurenston.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Holy moly… this book! It was the best of the series thus far and one of my favorite shifter books to date.

I literally waited a long time for this book. After reading the other books in the series, I was excited for this one the most. Unfortunately, it took a while to cross my path and even then, it was by coincidence. Doesn’t matter though because I thought it was worth the wait. I love all the characters in this series but Conner and Lily are my favorites so far. I can’t give one specific reason as to why that is, only that I loved them so much.

The writing is done well. The pace is good and the sexy scenes are hot! Yep, I wanted to be Lily in those moments. Lily was very shy. Truth is, I would say more wary than shy. And she had good reasons. There are definitely some dark elements in this book and some might feel triggered by them.

Connor was so good for Lily, a great match of “opposites attract.” Although I will say that while Connor was quiet and maybe shy when it came to Lily, when it was necessary, his beast came forward to love and protect her.

If you haven’t read the previous books in this series, I do recommend that. Yes, this book can be read as a standalone, however, I think you will enjoy the story more, especially having already met the several characters from past books that are present in this one.

We were given a bit of a teaser as to what’s to come in the next book. I really hope that will come out sooner rather than later.

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

Synopsis:

Newly widowed, the last thing Amy Malone wanted was to inherit On the Sound, a dilapidated B&B located on remote Lopez Island. But, when she found herself drowning in grief, she fled to Lopez Island—and began a new life.

Movie star Ben Morrison held Hollywood—and an Oscar nomination—in the palm of his hand. But, as the years ticked on, he floundered in the tailspin of one bad movie after another. The world he’d so carefully built crashed down around him after a drunken interview on national TV.

When Ben books an extended stay at On the Sound to hide from the paparazzi, he expects to rediscover his passion for his craft…or decide to call it quits for good. He isn’t expecting sparks to fly with his beautiful innkeeper. Amy’s more than willing to indulge in what starts out as a no strings attached fling. But, both Ben and Amy are caught off guard by their ever-growing connection, leaving Amy to wonder—can she risk losing her heart once again?

Love on the Sound (Lopez Island Series #1)Love on the Sound by Jamie Matthews

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

4.5 Stars.
This is my fist book by Jamie Matthews. Truthfully, I’m not sure I would have known this book even existed if it weren’t for the Foster An Author 2018 event being hosted on FB. I won this title in one of the many contests going on. I only entered the contest after reading the blurb. It sounded like a book that I would really enjoy, and I did. Love On The Sound has all the feels you look for in your perfect read. One specific aspect I appreciated the most was the character developments of Jamie and Ben. Both Jamie and Ben grew as individuals from the beginning. Both went through their own issues of heartbreak and sadness. In the end they healed each other. But to get to their happily-ever-after was not easy.

After Amy lost her husband, she needed a new start. So she took over a B&B that belonged to her husband’s family. The majority of the book takes place on the Lopez Islands. I’ve actually never heard of them before. However this author took me there with her talented words. I could clearly see what the characters saw; there was no need for me to use my own imagination.

Ben is a Hollywood actor who made some bad decisions and ended up in a place he felt lost. He needed a get away so he set out for the Lopez Islands to reinvent himself, to find out what his true passion in life was. You can guess that in the end, being in front of the camera was not it.

I don’t want to give anything away in the story. This book was a bit longer than what I’m used to but I didn’t mind. I was engaged throughout by the story, by the secondary characters, and the beauty that is Lopez Island. For a debut book, it was very good and I am looking forward to reading the next book in this series.

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