Synopsis:

I can explain.
Kind of.
I realize the wig and makeup don’t help my case, but that’s not the point.
The point is, Sebastian came at me first.
He’s the one who started this war, but I’m the one who finished it.
I’m not even sorry about it.
Fine. Maybe I am. A little.
That’s the only explanation as to why I just agreed to play his fake girlfriend so he—we—can win a million dollars on the hottest reality show contest ever filmed on campus.
Don’t get it wrong though, Sebastian and I may look like we love each other, but everyone knows reality TV is nothing but scripted lies and staged kisses.

My Review: 5 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Subscriber Wars by Kristy Marie

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Wow! This is another original story from this author. Her talent for storytelling is incredible. You can’t help but to fall helplessly in love with her characters.
If you’re a little bored with the same old romance tropes and genres then Kristy Marie is an author you will want to read, if you haven’t already. Her writing style is crafty, witty, engaging and down-right exceptional. I am 100% in love with her books. Each book is better than the one before. Each book has depth, complexity and originality. ALL her characters are amazing and you will love them all.

So, Subscriber Wars is a standalone and part of a series. They are next generation to her Commander in Briefs series. You don’t have to read those books prior but I promise you will have an even better reading experience if you do. Subscriber Wars is Valentina and Sebastian’s story. This book has a myriad of emotions throughout. Angst being first and foremost. Wit, snark, humor, and sexiness is in abundance as well. This book is thorough and entertaining and for me, it will be hard to knock it off the pedestal I have placed it on.

Unfortunately, I cannot tell you anything about the book other than it’s fantastic. The story/drama unfolds with each chapter and culminates with a fantastic and unpredictable ending. Those two epilogues? Priceless!

Vee and Sebastian have incredible chemistry. One of my favorite aspects of this book is having both H/h perspectives. So happy I could be inside both their heads. Vee is a unique heroine; I adored her personality and the way she owned up to her mistakes. Sebastian was another amazing character. His persona is willful, arrogant, and sexiness oozes from him. And yet he is not perfect. Sebastian also doesn’t run from his mistakes. But there are things he does want to run away from. That aspect gives the book depth. I wondered throughout, what his decision would be in the end.

I absolutely recommend this book to everyone who loves romance with a side of snark and a whole lot of humor. Subscriber Wars is a perfectly balanced novel.

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

Debra Salonen

Genre:  #ContemporaryRomance

My Rating:  4 Stars

Cover:  3 (pretty cover but not a great depiction of the book)

POV:  Third-person alternating perspectives

Synopsis:

She’s the first woman to tempt him to lower his carefully constructed walls…

Aspiring screenwriter Jade McCall looks at every temp job as inspiration for her next screenplay. Her latest boss, nicknamed the “Realtor to the Stars,” is sit-com gold: handsome, rich, charismatic and intensely brooding. But it’s his intelligence, dry humor and thoughtfulness that reels her in deeper than she’s ever been.

Mega-successful real estate broker Zachary Masters revels in his prestigious reputation—and why not? He wrote his own story, and hides the truth of his past behind the glamorous facade of his success. Jade intrigues him from the start, and soon he’s tempted to take their agreed upon fling to the next level. But then Jade’s career takes off, sending her home to Montana.

He thinks he’s lost her for good, but the consequences of their brief affair create an unexpected second act. Zach never thought he’d have a shot at a real family until Jade returns with a secret of her own.

Review:

 

All the Stars in Montana (Property Sisters of Montana, #3)All the Stars in Montana by Debra Salonen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4 Stars
All the Stars in Montana by Debra Salonen is the third book in the Property Sisters of Montana series. A lot of this book takes place in California. That said, I was a bit disappointed in that because I believed the book would primarily take place in Montana. It bothered me a little that Jade didn’t want to make Montana her permanent home instead of splitting time between the two states. That aside, I enjoyed the story.

I met Jade in the the first book. From the times she was on the pages, I inferred that she would be a strong, independent character. She had goals and a strong determination to succeed. Her career was first and foremost in her mind. Even her relationship with Zach was supposed to remain casual. The more time she and Zach spent together, Jade’s feelings grew into love. But how would she make the relationship work when Zack was in California and she was constantly traveling between the two? And would Zach want anything more than casual. He has a couple of secrets and is worried how Jade will react if he tells her.

I have read this author many times before. The writing is clear and engaging and her characters are likable. This book has a bit of angst but not so much to be a nail-biter. I enjoyed the premise, and interactions between all the characters. I especially enjoyed watching Zack fall in love. The way he treated Jade was beautiful. Jade couldn’t help falling in love with him. I, myself, fell in love with Zach.

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

Synopsis:

Can the handsome loner win the heart of the single mom? He’s about to find out on their Vegas road trip.

Single mom Skylar James is absolutely not interested in the broody, inked artist who works in her brother’s motorcycle repair shop. She’s focused on her four-year-old son and her thriving business as an image consultant. But when he asks her to work her magic on his widowed mom, how can she say no? She’s in—even if it means a road trip with the man who can’t take a hint.

When Jinx Costello rolled into Calamity, Wyoming, he met the woman who owned him heart and soul. Unfortunately, he hasn’t been able to convince her about their destiny. She won’t even go on a date with him. But when he sees her in action with a client, he puts his own needs aside to ask for help with his mom.

Away from her family and business, Skylar finally lets down her guard and realizes why she’s been fighting Jinx so hard: she’s wildly attracted to him. Which makes it hard to uphold her vow not to date while her son’s little.

Jinx can’t believe the woman of his dreams is finally giving him a chance. But is she just letting loose on a Vegas road trip?
Because this is it for him. She’s it.

And now he just has to prove it to her.

Come Away With Me (Calamity Falls)Come Away With Me by Erika Kelly

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Loved this short story with all the feels.
When an author can pack intensity, complexity, as well as all the feels into a short story, you know you’re going to love it. Right from the first pages I was hooked. When this story was over, I was immediately disappointed. I wanted more. Jinx won my adoration the first time he appeared on the pages. By the end of the book, I could not stop my ready-to-burst heart. Jinx is the epitome of a perfect hero. Sadly, I will not say too much. This book is only one hundred pages, steadily paced and easy to devour in one short sitting. However, I will tell you that both Skylar and Jinx have emotional pasts. And despite those pasts, they were amazing, selfless, people with big hearts and so much love for others. A truly wonderful couple.

Skylar and Jinx had so much chemistry. Their connection was beautiful AND believable. That said, Skylar was not easy to like at first; her past experiences make her cautious and not able to trust easily. But I quickly grew to adore her as well. As a matter of fact, I adored all the characters in this book. I haven’t read anything else by this author with the exception of a short in a holiday anthology. After I finished this book, I stalked her profile here on GR. There are so many books that look good and I am looking forward to reading more. I truly recommend this beautiful little gem. It will warm your heart and leave you smiling, wanting more.

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

Synopsis:

A sweet and sassy contemporary romance from New York Times bestselling author MaryJanice Davidson!

Captain Ava Capp has been flying from her past for a decade. She’d much rather leave it, and her home state, behind forever. But when she finds herself back in Minnesota, against her better judgment, everything goes sideways in a way she never expected it to.

M.E. Dr. Tom Baker has never forgotten Ava and the cold case she ran away from. When she shows up unexpectedly in town, in spite of himself, sparks fly. Which is terrible because he can’t stop his growing attraction to her. Can these two Type-A’s let their guards down and work together to put Ava’s tragic past behind her for good? And keep their hands off each other at the same time?

My Review:  3.5 Stars

Truth, Lies, and Second DatesTruth, Lies, and Second Dates by MaryJanice Davidson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

3.5 Stars…
I was actually torn between 3 & 3.5 stars for this rating. I ended up generously awarding the latter. Truth, Lies and Second Dates had the potential to be a five star read for me. Unfortunately, I didn’t love it, didn’t connect nor did I feel the writing was smooth. The pace was slow in my opinion. At least the first half of the book felt that way. This book is 320 pages but it felt like much more.

From the synopsis, I inferred the story to be different from what it was. The premise was explained well enough but the execution didn’t work for me. To be honest, I expected a darker tone. Ava, one of the main characters, was too sarcastic for me to take seriously; and her humor made me cringe during certain conversations. There is a time and a place for everything. This author didn’t feel that way. As a result, I wasn’t laughing all the time. The dialogue between characters was okay, but at times I had to re-read paragraphs because I could not follow along. Several times, I wondered if I missed some vital information because too many aspects didn’t make sense. Another aspect that interrupted my reading flow was the inserts of definitions at the end of each chapter and way too many parenthesis throughout the text. Also, the sudden switches in POV were another issue I had with flow. This book was very busy.

At some point after 30%, I ignored the monotony and decided if I wanted to like this book at all, I would view this story as a murder mystery and not a romantic comedy, as well as ignore the numerous onslaught of tropes. While the romance aspect ended up being cute, I didn’t feel this book was romance. That’s ok, though because I knew going in that the author was integrating many tropes; unfortunately that just didn’t work for me. But thankfully, one stood out so I focused on that. The “who done it” aspect. And to my delight and surprise, I didn’t see the end coming. Nor was I able to guess the murderer until that moment of resolution. I warn you now, there is no foreshadowing in this book. Situations just spontaneously arise. That said, regarding the climax, or my view on it, it was rushed. I had to re-read part of that final scene a few times.

To sum this review up, I didn’t hate the book. While there were parts of the writing I didn’t connect with, there were a few that I delighted in. This author took the dark undertone from the main focus and wrote characters with intellect, witticism, flaws, outrageousness and created an original story. Truth, Lies, and Second Dates, was most definitely something I have never read before. Nor have I read this author before. You cannot take this book seriously.

I want to close this review with one thought. If you are researching this book, deciding if you will read it, don’t look too deeply into the reviews. There are many mixed feelings about this book. Some loved it, some hated it and like me, some thought is was okay. We all have different preferences when we chose a book and while this book didn’t resonate with me in a fully posiitve light, you may love it.

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

Synopsis:

Can a fun-filled activity list from the past help to create a new future?

Art teacher Harley Welsh is charmed by her newest student—a little girl whose shyness disappears the second her hands are covered in clay or paint. Moving wasn’t easy for Nadia so to help her, Harley resurrects the countdown to the Great Pumpkin Patch—a must-do fall activity list from her childhood. She’s determined to show Nadia and her family how wonderful life in Crossvine Creek is. But Harley didn’t plan for Nadia’s father to be single, distractingly handsome and everything she’s running from.

New high school football coach Josh McBride is hoping a smaller town will give him more time to focus on his children. While his son is adjusting to the move, his daughter is struggling. Harley’s offer to help via a fun, seasonal-themed activity list is a welcome gift. Her love for the town is infectious, and soon his kids aren’t the only ones falling under her spell.

But Josh can’t help but wonder…what happens when they reach the end of the list?

My Review: 🎃🎃🎃🎃

Pumpkin Patch Sweethearts (The Welsh Sisters, #2)Pumpkin Patch Sweethearts by Sasha Summers

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

So sweet; this book was very enjoyable for several reasons. First, the characters are wonderful and help move this book along steadily. While the relationship development between Harley and Josh is slow; I didn’t mind. There is so much going on in this book aside from a romance that I was completely engaged. It was wonderful to watch.

Josh is a widower and moved his small family to Crossvine Creek in the hopes he will be able to focus more on his two young children. Josh has a son and a younger daughter, Nadia, who is painfully shy around most people. Nadia is not engaging in school and wants nothing more than to stay home. Fortunately, Harley is one of the very few people that Nadia feels comfortable around due in part to their mutual love of art. Harley is a wonderful character; her heart is big and she is selfless and nurturing. Her capacity to love is one of the things that make her an endearing heroine. She is so easy to fall in love with. So then why is Josh a grump when it comes to Harley? You’ll just have to read their story to find out.

Another aspect I absolutely loved about this book is the Fall theme. The small town of Crossvine Creek goes out of their way to celebrate this time of year with fun activities and festivals. The citizens who we meet in the book are a great addition and contribute to make this an even better book. Harley and her family are perfect. I felt such a strong connection to them all.

This book is smoothly written and you’ll be at the end before you know it. I won’t give any details away but I can tell you that watching the McBride family welcomed was so sweet. Crossvine Creek is definitely a town I can’t wait to read more about.

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

#NewRelease ~ “Rules For Dating Your Ex” The Baileys Book 9, by Author: Piper Rayne, Genre: #ContemporaryRomance, is Available Now ~ @PiperRayneRocks @WildfireMarket1 *(See below for my review)

Release Date: September 1

If your ex arrives in your hometown eighteen months after you walked out on him while you were eight months pregnant, follow this short list of rules before you give him a second chance.  
Rule #1 – Don’t stand in the way of your brothers who want to rough him up.
Rule #2 – Don’t meet him for coffee and agree to allow him to meet your daughter.
Rule #3 – Don’t drool when your daughter falls asleep on his chest for the first time. It’s just your ovaries talking.
Rule #4 – Don’t let him hold your hand. While we’re at it, no hugs, no kisses on the cheek… just no physical contact in general. That only leads to remembering better times.
The last one is the most important…
Rule #5 – When you find yourself needing someone’s help and you’re tired of always asking your family, don’t let him be the one who’s there for you. 
Because all those good qualities of his will suck you right back in and you’ll have no chance of fighting your feelings, especially now that he’s ready to be a father to your daughter.

My Review:
The Baileys have been part of my reading enjoyment for so long, yet not long enough. I am sad this is the end. I am going to miss this family and their antics. With nine siblings in the family, nine books and a couple of novellas, there is a lot to love. From Austin to Sedona, my heart is full. This family has become so special to me as well as the small town of Lake Starlight, Alaska that these books take place in. If you’ve read anything from this author duo before, then you already know they are incredible storytellers.

This last book is the story of Sedona and Jamison. From the first book of the series, we meet the family. Sedona and Jamison were high school sweethearts; they were each other’s first and only love. By the time Sedona and Jamison’s story is told, it is about a decade later. For most of those years they were together, with the exception of the last eighteen months. Jamison was playing professional soccer when an injury sidelined his career. Not dealing with that loss in a positive manor, he became someone that Sedona couldn’t be with. With her heart broken, Sedona returns home to Lake Starlight eight months pregnant.

When Jamison finally shows up to claim his family, he will have a lot of groveling to do. Jamison is now enemy number one in the eyes of the Bailey family. With only Grandma Dori rooting for him, and helping him in her own Grandma Dori way, he has a lot of rough road before him. I too was rooting for him. His struggles were real and he did everything he could to overcome them. Jamison became a man I was proud of. Sedona tried to keep Jamison at a distance but it was difficult. Although she was rightfully angry with him, she never stopped loving him. I was so happy with the moments they shared together prior to becoming a couple once again. The author took their time to give a slower pace with Jamison and Sedona’s relationship, yet keeping a steady flow of words so that the story didn’t stall or lag.

While all the books in the series are stand alone, I recommend you read them all. And the great thing about that is since all the books are available in the series now, with Rules for Dating Your Ex being the last, this a perfect binge-worthy opportunity.

I am so looking forward to the spinoff series coming from this. Another Alaska town series, more siblings, and another meddlesome grandmother who has the help of her great friend Dori, and the writing talents of Piper Rayne, of course!

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

Synopsis:

He never thought he’d have a real family Christmas…

For the past eight years, Bill Smith has been unable to set down roots. But he never forgot the magical night he spent with an auburn-haired beauty in Last Stand, Texas. When she finally tracked him down, he was more than happy to donate a kidney to AJ, the son he never knew he had. But now that AJ is better, Bill wants more time with him and his mother. He wants a family.

Annie Burleson can’t help but be grateful to this almost-stranger for saving AJ’s life. Still, she’s a little wary. AJ has already been through so much—what if Bill leaves again? And with Christmas in full swing, it’s difficult to discern which emotions are festive and which are forever.

As Annie and Bill’s lives collide, their mutual love for AJ makes this more than a marriage of convenience. But is it enough to give them the family Christmas they all deserve?

What a sweet book to put me in the Christmas mood. This is the time of year I look forward to the most. Fall is and has always been my favorite of the four seasons. Christmas is my favorite holiday and each year I anticipate all the amazing Christmas romances to come. Once I start reading the holiday novels, I don’t stop until sometime in January. So far, this past month I’ve read a handful of them and each one was a breath of fresh air. I am not a first-time reader to this author so I knew I was going to love this book. A Family For Christmas was endearing, heartwarming and not only did I enjoy the book, I am excited for Christmas this year. 2020 has been a horrible year for so many of us with the Covid-19 virus affecting so, so many of us. My family, including myself were sick. In fact, I was sick with Flu for weeks starting in early January and then we all came down with Coronavirus in March/April, each of us affected with similar AND different symptoms. It left a mark on my family we will never forget. And because of months of illness, I could not read much. As a result, catching up on my reading has been a God send.

This book has amazing characters and an interesting, engaging story. While this book is the second in the Burleson’s series it can be read as a stand-alone. I actually did not read book one yet. That said, while I fully enjoyed this book, I believe that had I read book one beforehand, A Family For Christmas would have been even better given the characters from book were a part of the story.

The synopsis gives you a very good idea where the story is going and while many aspects were predictable, I did not mind. This book grabs my interest from the very first chapter and by the end, I was wishing for more. I am looking forward to the third book in the series where I know I will revisit with past characters. This is one of those series you’ll want to read. Filled with emotion, only a bit of angst, a lot of anticipation and lovable characters, A Family For Christmas found a special place in my heart.

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