Synopsis:

Once upon a time, he was everything to her, except for one thing: her future

Christmas sparkles from every bough and window at the cozy Four Winds Ski Resort, where single mother Eden Kendall and her eight-year-old son are spending the holiday. A surprise marriage proposal from her boss’s son wasn’t on her Christmas list, but it’s the perfect excuse to get away and weigh her options. She never imagined her son’s ski instructor/Santa impersonator would be the gorgeous, charismatic dreamer she left behind years ago, the one who still owns a piece of her heart.

Cole Hagan has never stopped loving Eden and he’s spent the last eight years proving her wrong on every count about his potential. While he fights to save the resort that he helped to build by organizing a holiday concert, he decides it’s about time that Eden puts aside her list-making pragmatism so that she and her skeptical son can experience the true magic of Christmas.

Can this unlikely pair get a second chance at happily ever after?

Every Time a Bell RingsEvery Time a Bell Rings by Barbara Ankrum

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Lovely, whimsical second chance romance with an angelic twist. I wouldn’t actually call this book paranormal but there is a bit of spiritual influence. I enjoyed this book very much.

Eden left her hometown close to ten years ago. She not only left town, but the man who should have been her forever. Unfortunately, Eden wanted a financially secure future unlike her parents had. She worried that Cole was too much of a dreamer and left because of that, a financially secure future might not be in the cards. So, she left, made a lot of money in a job she liked but didn’t love. In addition, Eden is raising her best friend’s son. Because of that, Eden believes she made the right choice. Unfortunately, Eden will question her decisions once she runs into Cole while on a work-related vacation.

Cole is a business owner and financially secure, to Eden’s surprise. Another surprise is the fact that while spending time with Cole, Eden realizes her feelings for Cole are just as strong. Could she have made a mistake by leaving?

I won’t go into details about how Eden and Cole reconnect. This was a magical story and you should enjoy every minute of it as I did. I will add that there is some angst and a whole lot of Christmas influence.

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

Synopsis:

A magical, modern-day Christmas Carol

Digital designer Emma Wallace is finally poised for her big break: kitchenware giant Johnson Cookware is looking to rebrand – and with Christmas around the corner, Emma’s long-held philosophy of work-before-play may just give her the edge she needs to win the account.

The only peppermint twist in her Scrooge-worthy plan? She’s promised her ever-patient, architect boyfriend Sam Cole that after spending the last three Christmases in her office instead of in his arms, she’ll make this holiday just about the two of them. But as Christmas Eve draws near and the deadline crunch threatens her promise to Sam, Emma finds herself visited by three boyfriend “ghosts” of Christmases past, who come bearing the gift of hindsight.

Will showing Emma her past romantic failures, as well as her early courtship with Sam, help her to see the path to true happiness in time to save her future?

Boyfriends of Christmas PastBoyfriends of Christmas Past by Edie Grace

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Boyfriends of Christmas Past is a story loosely based on Charles Dicken’s A Christmas Carol with a twist. Emma is a workaholic and could never keep a relationship. All of her past boyfriends ended the relationship because her priorities were not with them. As the years pass and Emma gets older, her need to be the best at her job puts her current relationship with Sam in jepardy. Sam was a great guy; very patient and understanding however, he too, has limits. And when the final nail is hammered in, Emma will have to fight if she truly ants to have a future with Sam.

Emma is visited by a few of her past boyfriends. It is these men that help her to see the light. Of course Emma is driven by a fatherless childhood and a mother struggling to makes ends meet. Emma doesn’t want to ever depend on any man for financial security.

I very much enjoyed how this version of the story played out. It was fun and witty and the author’s version of the classic Scrooge was one I hadn’t read before. I would definitely read more from this author.

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

Release Blitz: Daddy Issues by Liv Morris, #SingleDadSecondChanceRomance is Available Now!

Daddy Issues - RB banner (1).jpg

Deliciously steamy! Daddy Issues is an emotional slow burn romance with a fabulous swoon worthy, broken hero you’ll fall head over heels for. My favourite Liv Morris novel yet!”–Helena Hunting, New York Times bestselling author

Daddy Issues, an all-new single dad, second chance romance from USA Today bestselling author Liv Morris, is available now!

LMDaddyIssuesBookCover6x9_MEDIUM-new.jpg

A single billionaire, a young nanny, and a surprise baby.

My life was ordered. Smooth and neat like my scotch. I had arranged relationships with a beginning and an end. No romantic attachments was my motto.

Then I met Maggie. A beautiful, young woman trying to find her place in the gritty world of Manhattan. She deserved more than a jaded man like me, so I let her walk away.

But fate stepped in and an ex-lover surprised me with a baby she claimed was mine. Desperate I hired a well-recommended nanny sight unseen. When she knocked at the door of my penthouse, I opened it to find Maggie standing on the other side.

I watched Maggie lovingly care for my child and wanted to learn to be a father to my daughter. But having Maggie so close was dangerous. She was a terrifying ray of sunshine that threatened to thaw my frozen heart.

I needed her for my child.

At least that’s what I told myself.

Until it was too late.

Pre-Order:  Once Upon A Cowboy Christmas

Synopsis:

Billionaires, cowboys, and romance collide during the holidays in this next book in the River Ranch series!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year at the Ford family ranch. Will one cowboy’s homecoming be the greatest gift of all?

He left town and never looked back.
Cody Ford is a Wall Street honcho with humble Texas roots. This holiday season, he’d be content to just stay in New York and not face his family―and dodge their questions about when and with whom he plans to settle down. . .and if he will do so back at home. But his father isn’t getting any younger, and Cody doesn’t want to miss any last chances to see him and the rest of the folks back on the ranch. The last person Cody was expecting to see? His one-time girlfriend, Lexi Murphy, who’s been working as his dad’s new live-in nurse.

She never forgot him. Can she ever forgive him?
Lexi still holds a grudge against Cody. Back then, the college-bound heartthrob believed he was too good for a small-town girl like Lexi. But now Cody can’t help but see her in a whole new light. Could it be that this beautiful single mother with an unbeatable can-do spirit is the one he’s been waiting for all along? That depends on whether Cody can prove to Lexi that, this time, he means business―and if a sudden snowstorm can lend just the right amount of Christmas magic to help move things along.

📝My Review📝: 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Once Upon a Cowboy Christmas (River Ranch, #3)Once Upon a Cowboy Christmas by Soraya M. Lane

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It’s never too early to start reading Christmas Romances, especially when there are so many and the holiday season isn’t long enough to read all the ones I want. When I read the synopsis for Once Upon A Cowboy, I was excited. Two of my favorites things are Christmas and cowboys. That said, this book had the potential to be a five star rating from me. But unfortunately, the hero was a bit too full of himself for me to love. By the end of the book I did like him, however I didn’t love him and that was a bit disappointing.

Cody moved on from the family ranch right after high school and didn’t look back unless you count the few and far between times he came to visit. He believed he had good reasons which I will not divulge to you because you should read that on your own. I will say that while I understood his reasons for staying away, I didn’t feel they were the huge drama he made them out to be. But that is just my own opinion, and one of the reasons I couldn’t fall in love with Cody. Also, I didn’t feel the connection between him and Lexi. Lexi, I loved. And on her behalf, I was frustrated with Cody. Look, I don’t want to downplay his way of thinking too much just because I couldn’t connect with him. But I can say that his situation was one that I know personally; it never would have even occurred to me to leave the way he did or stay away so long.

The synopsis for this book gives you good insight into the premise of this story so I won’t need to summarize it. You must be wondering why I gave this book four stars after reading how I didn’t like Cody. Well the answer to that is easy. The secondary characters and Lexi are who brought me entertainment and kept me turning pages. I especially adored Cody’s dad. He was such a wonderful addition to this story which takes place the week leading up to Christmas.

Cody and Lexi’s story is the third book in the River Ranch series. I have not read the previous books yet. Because I truly liked Cody’s younger brother and sister, I would like to read their books as well. In addition, there is the oldest sibling, Angelica, still to have her great love story told.

While this was my first book by this author, I would like to read more from her. Even though I wasn’t a fan of Cody, I enjoyed the author’s talent for storytelling; she kept me engaged in the story and that is all I need.

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

Guitarist Chad Wilcox’s life isn’t going according to plan. 
At thirty, he never thought he’d still be unmarried and living with his parents. And with the added stress of his poor health, he’s convinced the only thing within his control is the success he’s found as a rockstar.
 
After reconnecting with his childhood best friend, Chad sets into motion a new plan to regain control over his happiness, and things start looking up. But when he finds himself diagnosed with a potentially debilitating chronic illness, he begins to wonder…
Is this as good as it’s going to get? Or is it at all possible for a guy like him to get everything he’s ever wished for?

 

 

 

“What’s that look for?” she asked with a giggle, as she reached around to secure her bra.
 
I shook my head as a smile stretched over my lips. “Nothin’. Just …” I swallowed at the warmth crowding my heart and my lungs. “You’re my best friend.”
 
She tugged a tank top on and sighed, her exhale lingering in the air. “You’re mine.”
 
Mine. The word was simple and yet held the world. It was an agreement, it was possession. It was an invisible contract that lingered between us, and I would’ve gladly used my own blood to sign on the dotted line.
 
But instead of pricking a finger and sealing the deal, I simply nodded, as only two words left my mouth.
 
“I’m yours.”

job, the husband. Until one day, I didn’t. I don’t know when exactly things
started to change between us, only that it did, and in a big way. So much so, I
found myself standing before a judge and signing off on the end of my marriage.
To the only man, I’ve ever loved.

Now, he’s back, fighting, and ready to prove to me that we made a mistake, that
our love is worth giving this another chance. I’m not sure if he’s right, but I
know what my heart wants, and it wants him. My ex-husband.

Why is it that you don’t know the depths of your mistakes until you’ve already
made them? I knew signing those papers was a bad idea, but I thought that’s
what she wanted. The minute we stepped foot out of that courtroom, it hit me.
She’s no longer mine.

That’s when I also realized, that I would do anything to change the past. I
have so many regrets. Not her. I could never regret her, but how we ended. We
never should have ended. I’m in for the battle of my life to convince her to
give us another shot. I have a plan, one that will prove to her that, it’s not

📝My Review📝: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Amazing! Totally Swoon-worthy!
Incredible, fantastic read!

This book tugged at all my heartstrings. From the very first page I was invested. I needed to see this amazing couple get there happily-ever-after. They deserved it so much!

Harrison and Winnie were happily married at one time. But lately, Harrison let his job come first. He didn’t mean to, though. All Harrison wanted was to create a future for him and his precious Winnie. They had made so many dreams over the decade they were together. And when that all came crashing down, it not only broke both their hearts, but mine was hurting too. And that right there is one of the many reasons I loved this book. This author duo had me engaged and eagerly awaiting for Winnie and Harrison’s happy-ever-after. They made me feel everything!

It’s not often I come across books where the H/h are already married. And even though there were only glimpses into their past together, I believed their relationship was special. I felt their love on every page. There wasn’t a doubt in my mind that Winnie and Harrison belonged together.

I won’t go into details because I don’t want to ruin the experience of this amazing book for you. I will say that It’s Not Over is angsty and emotional with a good amount of suspense. In addition, there is a cast of secondary characters that bring even more depth and believability to the story. This was a book I immensely enjoyed. I believe there is going to be a book featuring Harrison’s best friend, Chase and Winnie’s sister Gabby. I am looking forward to that book!

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

Synopsis:

He’s never even kissed the woman, but her son is clearly, without a doubt, his.

Zach McCoy has been on the rodeo circuit for six years and is making a damn fine living at it. When he comes home, for the first time, to be in his best friend’s wedding he’s got one helluva surprise waiting for him in the shape of a five-year old boy who is his spitting image.

Emma Kipling took matters into her own hands six years ago, before the man she was crazy about took off to join the rodeo. She didn’t care one bit that he was two years older and she was still in high school, she wanted one night with him before he left to compete in a dangerous sport. When he didn’t come back after she found herself pregnant she knew he had abandoned her and her son.

Now he’s back for her brother’s wedding, and by the look on his face, sparks are going to fly. She’s ready and willing to go toe to toe with him and give him a piece of her mind.

Emma's Rodeo Cowboy: Burlap and Barbed Wire (Burlap and Barbed Wire Series Book 6)Emma’s Rodeo Cowboy: Burlap and Barbed Wire by Shirley Penick

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Book six in the Burlap and Barbed Wire series is finally here! I feel like I’ve been waiting for this book specifically. I truly enjoyed all the prior books in the series but from the moment I met Emma, and the constant mentions of Zach, I knew there was a good story there. Well, this book was worth the wait. I absolutely adored both Emma and Zach. Especially Zach. While he is a sexy rodeo cowboy, he is also a gentleman. Zach was kind, sweet, loyal and loving. Without going into too many details, I’ll say I was sad for all he missed. You know, those awful misunderstandings and assumptions we love to hate in our romances? Well this book has that. I’m just so happy everything worked out.

Ok, I will also say that while their circumstances were nothing I’ve ever read before, I thought it to be a bit unbelievable when first mentioned. But as the book goes on, the author does a good job of helping me to believe something so unbelievable could truly happen. And that is all I will say about that, lol.

Emma and Zach are reunited after six years. As you know from the blurb, there is also a little person in the scenario now. I enjoyed the whole dynamic of Zach, Emma and Tony learning how to be a family, how they could make it work. There are a few obstacles in their road to Happily-ever-after. But their love is strong. It always was and that was all they needed. This book is low angst and enjoyable to read. I’m very happy I got to read this series. I definitely recommend the Burlap and Barbed Wire series from Shirley Penick.

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

Release Blitz with Review: On The Surface (Imperfect Love Book Three) by Nikki Ash, #ContemporarySecondChanceRomance

 

Title: On the Surface
Series: Imperfect Love
Author: Nikki Ash
Genre: Single Dad Romance
Release Date: June 22, 2019



 

People see what they want to see. They only view what’s on the surface, and they’re easy to fool. I let them see on the outside that I’m a successful businesswoman. My clothes are designer, my makeup flawless, and I live in a high-rise condo in Lennox Hills. They see perfection, not what lies beneath the surface.
 
The real me, the one I keep hidden is a broken-hearted woman who uses the makeup to hide her tears. The expensive clothing covers a heart once shattered by love. The walls of my expensive home shelter a lonely woman who hides the fact that deep down she wants to be loved. A woman who is too scared to risk her fragile heart.
For ten years, I’ve managed to hide behind the image of perfection. Only letting people see what’s on the surface.
Until I ran into Jase.
Now, every raw emotion, every shattered piece of my heart that I buried long ago is exposed outside the protective walls of my high-rise condo. No matter how hard I try, I can’t keep the walls from crumbling. He sees me beyond the image that I’ve created. He says he can handle what’s below the surface, but can I?

Wow. Nikki Ash just keeps on impressing me! I loved this book so much! You can tell that this author puts her heart into every story.

Ok, so I’m not going to lie…..when we met Celeste in Nick’s book, The Pick Up, book one in the series, I did not like her. Not at all! Then we are given more of her in Killian and Giselle’s book. There I can admit I still wasn’t on board with the “Celeste” train. She just was not a likable character. And do you know what? I’m glad the author kept her backstory from us until her own book. Celeste is a very complex character. There are many sides to her. But as the title implies, Celeste is just one persona on the surface. There is so much more to this woman. My admiration and respect for her grew expotentionally in my mind and in my heart. No, Celeste was not perfect. She did frustrate me now and again. But this time I understood where she was coming from. Fear is an emotion that has the potential to destroy us. I’m just glad that by the end of the book, Celeste decided to overcome most of her fears to have her happily-ever-after.

Now, Jase, swoon-worthy all the way. Even Jase is more that what you see on the surface. I loved his character from the moment we met him in the past. He was so perfect. If I had to dig deep to find any flaws he might have, I’d be unsuccessful. He was just everything I love in a book boyfriend.

Going into the book, you know these two have a past. And while it was a short one, there were very strong feelings involved. Unfortunately, something happens that separates them for ten years. So much time has passed but the hurt never left either. I’m not going to say they made up quickly because that would make this story a disappointment. The regrowth of their relationship was a slow one. Yes, they had hot chemistry and a few hot moments, but when it came to committing, there were issues that had to be dealt with.

But in the end, I couldn’t have asked for a better “wrap-up.” I’m not ready to say goodbye to these characters. I absolutely can’t wait for Quinn’s book. She is Jase’s sister. I already know her story is going to be great.

This book is part of a series but can be read as a standalone. But trust me, you’ll want to read the two books prior for a better reading experience.

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