Check out the Series: The Greene Family

Synopsis:

In the middle of a crowded bar in our small Alaskan town, my estranged wife snuggles up to me as if we’re still a happy couple.

Don’t get me wrong, we were a happy couple—before she walked out on me a year ago. We were the high school sweethearts everyone thought were destined to be together forever. We thought so too, which is why we married shortly after graduation.

We had a good marriage. Until she left me without any real explanation.

Now, she’s back—and this is the real kicker—she has amnesia and thinks I’m still her husband. Technically I am, although the divorce papers are sitting at the lawyer’s office.

She’s desperate to remember her life in Sunrise Bay but I only want to find out why she left me. Once we conjure that memory up, it’s sayonara because there’s no second chances here. But as you probably already figured out, things didn’t go quite as I planned.

My Almost Ex is a second chance romance between two childhood friends-to-lovers in Piper Rayne’s brand-new, small-town family series, The Greene Family. Coming April 6, 2021.

My 📝Review📝: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

I loved this book so much! Devoured it in hours! The Greene family is so easy to love. Truth? After reading the Bailey series by this author, I didn’t think they could top it. But I should have known better because with Piper Rayne almost each new book becomes my favorite.

Adam and Lucy’s story was amazing. Angsty, emotional, and sad at times. Not for a single moment did I believe Lucy left Adam because of anything he had done. He was so devastated by her leaving the way she did. And boy was it a shock to everyone when she returned with amnesia. I appreciated the way Adam behaved because it was realistic. And while there is definitely angst, my feeling is that it is moderate which is my preference.

With the rest of the Greene family all up in Adam and Lucy’s business, the serious tone of the story had plenty of humor to balance the plot.

I don’t want to say too much because I want you to go into the story without spoilers. Really, I thought this was an incredible story and am already eager to reread. That said, I’m so excited for what comes next in the Greene family. While these books can be enjoyed as a standalone, you should definitely start at the beginning with Hank and Marla’s novella and see how it all started. You do that and you will only enhance your reading pleasure.

Having read an advanced reading copy of this novel, I can assure you that this is my honest and unbiased review and I thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

Check out the series: Wishing River Series

Synopsis:

Janie Adams has been a single parent to her nephew since he was a baby. Fifteen years later, she’s finally found out who his father might be, so the two of them travel across the country to find him. She’d do anything for this kid. But when they arrive in the small town of Wishing River, Montana, and Janie finally meets the ruggedly handsome cowboy she’d been told had abandoned his son, his shocked response changes everything.

Aiden Rivers can’t dispute this is his kid when he sees his own features staring back at him, but he had no idea Janie’s sister was pregnant when she left him. He didn’t even know she had a sister—clearly they’d all been lied to. Now he has fifteen years of fatherhood to make up for and no idea how to be a dad. This was never in his plans.

Janie sticks around to help him ease into parenting, everything from showing him how to lure a sulky kid out of his bedroom to keeping up with the latest teen-speak. Together, they surprisingly make a good team, this city girl and country boy. But when the past catches up with them, Aiden and Janie must decide what’s best for the boy who’s connecting them, not only for each other…which could mean splitting them apart.

My 📝Review📝: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

What a perfect book! All the feels!
Wishing for a Cowboy is the third book in the Wishing River series by Victoria James. I have not yet read the two previous but am definitely looking forward to it. From the first pages I was engaged and distraught each time life got in the way causing me to put the book down. I was fully immersed in the storyline and could not wait to see how things turned out for Will, Janie & Aiden. I felt there was a lot of real-life issues that the author did a fabulous job with writing into the story. Often we read stories with similar premises and predictably know how it will turn out. While I had made my inferences, there were a few emotional surprises along the way. This book had a lot of different feels. From Will and Aiden understandably and Janie as well. All three of these characters had so much taken away from them.

Janie comes to Montana with her nephew Will in hopes to gain financial help from WIll’s father. Once she arrives and states her reason for being there, the book understandably takes on a serious tone. My thoughts? I was angry from the injustices that Janie’s sister brought to them all and took no responsibility for. I won’t go into any details but I will say that the author did a great job with realistically putting these three hearts back together.

If you are looking for an emotional story, set in the backdrop of Montana that is well written and engaging, I highly recommend Wishing for a Cowboy by Victoria James.

While I received a review copy from NetGalley, this is my honest and unbiased review and I thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

Add to TBR: My Kind of Cowboy

Check out the series: Blackstone Ranch

Synopsis:
He’s barely given her a passing glance…

Shandi Flanagan has lived in Paxton Springs, Texas, her whole life. When the bar and grill she’s been working at since high school comes up for sale, she vows to find the money to buy it. But when her house goes up in flames, so do her entrepreneurial dreams. The only good thing to come of it? Being rescued by the hottest cowboy around, Jace Paxton.

Jace has his hands full finding a way to grow his family’s vacation resort and tracking down the rustlers who stole his new herd of calves. At least being able to save Shandi, the town’s favorite sweetheart, goes right. She needs a place to stay, and there’s plenty of room on the Blackstone Ranch.

But he needs the bar and grill as much as she does. And while he’s a formidable competitor…she’s not. How can he take away her dream and future? How could she love him if he did? 

My 📝Review📝: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

This book has everything! I knew this would be a five star read from the first chapter. There are a lot of secondary characters; some from previous books in this series. My Kind of Cowboy has angst (not too much, though), suspense/mystery, drama, and romance. And guess what? The romance aspect was a slow burn so the anticipation of that made this book not only better, but realistic and believable. Having both Jace and Shandi’s POVs made this book even more enjoyable. There is nothing that frustrates me more or stalls my reading flow than when I have to guess at what the characters are feeling. So, having both POV’s is a top preference for me.

This book is the third in the series featuring the Paxton brothers. I did not read the previous two (yet) and had no trouble at all following along. This book can definitely be read as a stand-alone. However, I became very curious about how two of the brothers met their future Mrs. Paxtons. As soon as I can, I will be reading those books.

Shandi is the town sweetheart. She truly fit that persona; always putting others before herself even when she had to work two exhausting jobs to pay bills and the pay off the debts her deceased father left behind. When Shandi sees an oppotunity to make her dreams come true, she jumps at it. Despite the fact she has little to no assets, Shandi doesn’t give up. Not even when the crush of her life gets in the way.

Jace has known Shandi nearly all his life but recently has seen her in a different light. He wants to know her better, wants to protect her and take away her troubles. Even if it seems he is one of them.

The romance blossoming between Jace and Shandi is slow. But don’t worry because there are others things taking place in the story that will have your full attention. Rustlers, arsonists, drug addicts, are all part of the mystery and intrigue of this book. I will say no more in the way of details.

The ending was perfect. The epilogue even better. Overall, My Kind of Cowboy is a memorable, and engaging story with all the feels, and I highly recommend it as a must-read.

This was actually my first book by this author. She has just gained a new fan. I cannot wait to read more of her books!

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

REVIEW: 5 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Stars to “Texas Forged” Texas True #1, by Author Eve Gaddy, #ContemporaryRomance is #AvailableNow ~ @EveGaddy @TulePublishing

Eve Gaddy

Purchase: Texas Forged

Genre/Tropes: #ContemporaryRomance #SecondChanceRomance

My Rating: 5

Cover: 5 *Definitely my favorite cover for the month of February

Publication: March 4th 2021

Read: February 17th 2021 *Review copy provided by Tule Publishing Group

POV: Third person alternating perspectives

Add to TBR: Texas Forged

Synopsis:

When the woman of his dreams walks through his door, it seems too good to be true…

World famous metal artist Gabe Walker is elated when the woman he’s loved since high school strolls into his workshop to ask him out on a date. But there’s a catch—it’s with another woman. Gabe has no trouble saying no to that date, but with Chantel? The answer’s always hell yes.

With two failed relationships behind her, Chantel Chandler wants to keep things light. She’s recently back in Whiskey River, Texas, and is determined to pick up the pieces of her life. But her casual friendship with Gabe quickly combusts into an intensely hot affair with an unexpected surprise…a pregnancy.

Chantel would love to be a mom, but she needs to be loved for herself first. Gabe says he’s all in, but how can she trust again when she’s been let down so many times? 

My Review: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Oh, this book was so good!
I felt like I had been waiting forever for Gabe’s story. Considering this is the first book in the Texas True series you are probably wondering why. I have always been a huge fan of Tule Publishing. I absolutely love how their Texas and Montana Born series’ interconnect lightly with characters from previous books. Not to mention, they can all be read as stand alone romances. Tule Publishing is the home of many talented authors and I always stalk their website to see whats coming.

That said…..I have previously been introduced to Gabe throughout a few books in the Texas Born world and I always wondered and hoped that he would one day have his own story told. Eve Gaddy did an incredible job bringing romance to Gabe. I couldn’t have been happier that Gabe and Chantel made a life with each other.

Gabe and Chantel…..
These two have known each other since high school. During those younger years, Gabe had a huge crush on Chantel but she was dating his best friend at the time. Gabe being Gabe, he never made a move. He was more than disappointed his friend got to her first. While Chantel was with Gabe’s friend, she believed Gabe didn’t like her because he was always frowning at her. Of course he was. His friend was dating the girl of his dreams.

While they respectively went their separate ways after high school, both ended up back in their hometown of Whiskey River. But it is a couple of years before they have their chance. I don’t want to spoil any of this story for you. I loved it so much. So much in fact the bar is set very high to impress me with the coming books in this series. Gabe was the whole package. First and foremost, a gentleman. I haven’t claimed a book boyfriend in a long time since so many books I’ve read in the past year have had cookie cutter heroes. That is not a bad thing, just saying that Gabe was the first in a while that pushed ALL my buttons.

Texas Forged is a wonderful story of taking chances, romance, healing and love. There are some emotional elements that broke my heart; some angst and drama as well. Watching Gabe and Chantel profess their love was believable and heartwarming. I absolutely recommend this book! Actually, I highly recommend it.

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

Do they have the right ingredients to create something magical or are they a recipe for disaster?

My 📝Review📝:
5 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

I have to tell you I discovered this author over the last twelve months. A book from her Aspen Cove series had been waiting on my TBR for me to read, and one day I decided to read something from that never ending list. Well, I was so happy after I read it. In fact, it led me to purchase several more of Kelly’s books. When I came across this book while browsing NetGalley, I knew I had to read it. A Tablespoon of Temptation was amazing. For a lack of a better adjective at the moment, I was impressed. This book had everything I look for in a romance. Character development is important. While this book doesn’t have a broad timeline, I felt the characters developed nicely. Both James and Danielle were burned by romance before. And while they each did not swear off love, they certainly weren’t seeking it out. Regardless, love found them anyway. Thanks to a wonderful cast of secondary characters, I was doubly immersed in the story. Engaged is an understatement. I loved this book!

The blurb does a good job in giving you a look into what the premise of the story it so I’m not going to ruin your reading experience by giving spoilers. I can tell you that from the first chapters, I knew this was going to be a five star read for me. There were quite a few elements involved in making this more than just a love story. There are secrets, humor, some angst and even a bit of whimsy.
And the end tied up perfectly, everyone getting what they deserve 😉

I definitely recommend this book to all lovers of romance and a feel good story with some complexity and a lot of heart! In fact, I recommend you add this author to your TBR. You won’t be disappointed.

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

Noel, Alabama: An Alabama Christmas Romance by Susan Sands

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


This was really an enjoyable book. All the elements of Christmas in a small-town atmosphere with a bit of angst and a wonderful cast of characters. I have not read any of the previous books in the Alabama series as of yet but after reading this one, I definitely am looking forward to it. One of my favorite aspects of romance novels are the small-town tropes. Add Christmas and a bit of whimsy and I’m very happy. In addition to reading and loving this book, I am happy to say that I have found a new author that I like. I can’t wait to read more of this series.

Bailey and Seth…..
Why is it that one half of a couple is always eager to run away from their hometown? And in doing that, inevitably breaking the heart of their soulmate. I just don’t get it. So many romance novels in the second chance genre go this way. Unless there is a damn good reason, I have trouble forgiving. I know that Bailey needed to bolt to make her dreams come true and I am fine with that. But rarely coming home to visit is what bothers me the most. Thankfully, I was able to forgive her.

Seth never left Noel. It is and always will be his home. If only he could make Bailey see how wonderful Noel is and how much he still loves her. When Bailey comes to town with a film crew she will find more than the hometown Christmas she has always loved. She finds herself wanting another chance at love with Seth. The development of Bailey and Seth as a couple is slow which I liked. While the background focus is filming the movie and Bailey making sure her bosses are happy, she and Seth become friends again. Of course, Seth is being understandably cautious with his heart this time. I truly enjoyed watching all their interactions. This couple was mature and courteous of each other. In fact I adored every single character on the pages; some of which I am eager to read about in the earlier books of this series.

The pace of this book is perfect. The author gave me not only a satisfying story with a great ending, but she truly out did herself with the Christmas aspect. Who knows how I will be able to celebrate our usual Christmas this year with everything going on in the world today. 2020 has not been a good year. So, when I am gifted with stories such as this one, I am happy. I absolutely recommend this book. If you are a lover of Christmas romances, Noel, Alabama is a must read!

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

Synopsis:

He’s ready for the lights…

Baker Grant Reed loves discovering new Christmas recipes, making people smile, and Angel Point—not necessarily in that order. But when his editor turns down his proposal for a Christmas cookbook, he must show her how serious he is about becoming the premier pastry chef in the country. He turns to his best friend, Faith—if anyone can give him a complete makeover that will turn heads, she can.

She knows how to make things sparkle…

In her past, Faith Hathaway was a costume designer for some of Broadway’s most prestigious plays. Now, after moving to Angel Point to help her grandfather, she owns and operates a vintage boutique and helps out at the local theater. When Grant asks for a makeover, she’s torn—she loves him the way he is, mismatched socks and all.

In exchange, he promises to show Faith, who has never enjoyed the holiday season, the magic of an Angel Point Christmas. But as the two grow closer, Grant can’t help but wonder…has he got his Christmas wish all wrong?

The Christmas Makeover by Susan Lute

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


What a wonderful, feel-good story. This book was a breath of fresh air, an original story and I absolutely loved it!

Why did it have to end? How often do you read a great book and then when it’s over, that book is all you think about? Well, The Christmas Makeover was that book for me. I read so many books each month and most of them become forgettable. There was just something special about this book that is still strongly resonating with me. I want to live in Angel Point. I want to be friends with Grant and Faith. Another wonderful thing about this book is the premise. I haven’t read one like this in so long which only added to my enjoyment. The Christmas Makeover is a sweet, clean romance. So if you’re looking for intense and dirty, this book is not for you. The pace was steady, the characters, which there are many of, were all amazing in their own ways and added even more enjoyment. My only complaint is that I wish there was an epilogue. The H/h didn’t have enough time together as a couple before the book was over. I am not going to give you a summary for the sole reason, that I don’t want to spoil your reading enjoyment. I will add that the author does an amazing job depicting the holidays. I am so ready for the fun and chaos of Christmas. Especially this year.

This book is part of a series so I can only hope the author will let us revisit Grant and Faith in the next book. Gosh, I adored them! I recommend this adorable, heartwarming book to anyone looking for an endearing, feel-good holiday story. It was wonderful and a must read.



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