The MRS. Degree by Sara Ney

Release Date: May 3, 2022

SYNOPSIS: I never thought I would get pregnant in college. When I did, I thought leaving Jack Jennings was doing him a giant favor—he had a bright future ahead of him as a football star—the last thing he needed was me and a baby standing in his way of his dreams. Honestly? I figured he would eventually forget about me.
I would raise our child in secret and watch Jack on television, and the pain of what I’d done to him would heal.
The last person I expected to see on my brothers doorstep seven years later was Jack; obviously, or I wouldn’t have answered it. A superstitious athlete, dreams were keeping him awake at night that were preventing him from excelling on the field—dreams he was hoping I could make…disappear. He looked so good. So much older.
Kind. Handsome. Turns out, he hadn’t forgotten about me either, and he hadn’t put our past behind him.


The MRS. Degree is Book 2 in the new Accidentally in Love Series!


REVIEW: Let’s start with Jack. He is totally book boyfriend material! I think the way he really loved Penelope, and the way he handles everything was pretty mature. I also just love Sara Ney’s humor, and some of her sports romances are my absolute favorites! We see Davis and Juliet from The Player Hater right in the beginning of this one. Davis is Penelope’s brother and bought her a house right next to his. They’re super close, and he is an awesome uncle to Skipper! While I agree with the sentiment of Davis’ feelings about everything Penelope kept secret, I didn’t love the way he went about telling her that. Secret baby is always a hard trope, and I think Sara Ney did well with this one in general. For me personally, the reasons for the secret have to be very specific things, or I just have trouble with it. This one did not have one of those reasons, so it was just hard for me to get past that (which is totally a personal problem). If you like the secret baby trope, I think you’re going to like this one!

Bitter Love by Emily Goodwin

3 STARS

Release Date: April 30, 2022

SYNOPSIS: If there’s one thing I know to be certain in life, it’s to expect the unexpected. I never expected to become a teen mom or have to flee a toxic relationship years later. And I certainly never expected to go head-to-head with Jacob Harris, doctor of veterinary medicine, to prove I’m worthy of running the struggling rescue full of misfit animals I suddenly inherited. Jacob is as smug as he is good looking, and I refuse to let that cocky grin or sharp jawline distract me. I won’t go down without a fight, and this time, it’ll be easy to stand my ground when my opponent is someone I can’t stand–even though my body reacts whenever he’s around. This time I’m not backing down no matter how much he gets under my skin. But the more I push, the more he pulls…until I don’t know what I’m more at a risk of losing: the rescue or my heart.


REVIEW: I have been waiting for another Emily Goodwin contemporary! I absolutely loved her Dawson Family Series, and I’ve been looking forward to more in the Silver Ridge Series. This one was more of a slow burn and a real enemies-to-lovers. Josie and Jacob did not get along for a while, and it was not exactly what I was expecting. If you like these elements, I think you’re going to like this one! It also had a more “women’s fiction” genre vibe, because a lot of the focus is on Josie, her journey as a single mom, and how awesome she is. While this is not the contemporary romance I was expecting, there are some really wonderful things about this story for certain readers!

The Spring We Ignited by Victoria Denault

5 STARS

Release Date: April 29, 2022

SYNOPSIS: I married the wrong brother, but for the right reasons. My life was a mess when I started working at Hawkins Lobster Shack. Declan Hawkins was a mess too, and he swore marrying would solve both our problems. He wasn’t wrong. And I wasn’t unhappy. There was love. It was good… until it wasn’t. Now my marriage is over and my husband left town, leaving me alone to face the confused and hurt faces of our friends and his family. So when his brother Finn suggests he become my fake husband so we can take that vacation Mr. and Mrs. Hawkins won, I don’t say no. I need a break from the judging eyes of Ocean Pines. Pretending Finn’s my husband is playing with fire because my long buried feelings for him are coming back to life. And I still have secrets to keep. Secrets that aren’t mine to share. Secrets that, if revealed, could burn this small town, and any feelings Finn might have for me, to the ground.


The Spring We Ignited is a small-town, fake marriage, friends-to-lovers romance. No cheating and HEA guaranteed.


REVIEW: This book was so much better than I thought it be and I thought it was gonna be great! This series has been so emotional so far, and I definitely like the previous books, but this one is by far my favorite!! You see some of the set up in the previous books, which definitely adds to this story. I was really anticipating this one, because I just didn’t know what to expect when it came to how it would play out between Nova and Finn. These two were just meant to be together! They were also just such a likable characters–even when they were going to their struggles and dealing with everything else. I felt like the things that were difficult for them were often outside of their control rather than things that they were doing themselves or each other. I also appreciate the different backgrounds of these two, and how they address that they see things from different perspectives. They also listened and educated each other about their own experiences. Nova is just so strong, caring, and loving. She was a wonderful female character. I’ve been really curious about Declan as well from previous books and I was wondering how he was gonna play into this story. I felt like there were some good Easter eggs about his story in this one, and I am really, really hoping that Victoria Denault is going to take it where I think she’s taking it, because sign me the fuck up. Honestly, I just was so emotionally satisfied by this book. And not only do I love this story immensely, I love this freakin’ cover!! It is too cute and I can’t wait to get my physical copy!

Always You by Samantha Young

5 STARS

Release Date: April 26, 2022

SYNOPSIS: Arrochar Adair has loved her brother’s ex-bodyguard and best friend, Mac Galbraith, for years. Once upon a time, she was too young for him, but now that she’s a mature woman in her thirties, Arro can see no issue with their difference in age. Yet something deeper, a problem much more difficult to surmount, is keeping them apart. Mac Galbraith remembers clearly the night Arro became everything to him, no longer just his best friend and boss’s younger sister. However, having made many mistakes over the years, there is one mistake Mac is determined not to make: to believe that he is worthy of Arrochar Adair. Allowing them to grow closer during his daughter, Robyn’s, return has proven his undoing. And when Arro forces the subject of their relationship, his response pushes her away. He just never meant for it to destroy them completely. Devastated by Mac’s final rejection, Arro is determined to move on without him in her life, though he seems intent on staying put. And when the Adair family face a new threat, one that may have ties to Mac’s past, Arro can’t seem to be rid of the man. In fact, Mac will do anything to protect her. But with so much hurt between them, will Arro let Mac close enough to guard her from their enemy… before it’s too late?


Always You is Book 3 in the Adair Family Series!


REVIEW: THIS SERIES! I’m absolutely in love with this series. I actually re-read book one, Here With Me, after reading book 2, There With You, just so I could be prepared for this one. I have been dying for Mac and Arro’s story since we caught glimpses of them and their connection in book one. Mac is such a wonderful character. Seeing him rebuild his relationship with Robyn in book one, and his support of Robyn and Reagan in book two, made me really interested in him as a male character. It was great to see his background, and get to know his hangups that were stopping him and Arro from being together. Arro has also been a great character throughout this series, and getting to know her better and seeing her love for Mac was really heartwarming. These two have definitely been on a heartbreaking journey that was rarely easy throughout this whole book, but it made me that much more happy for them at the end. The romantic suspense was a lot in this one, but honestly the relationship between Mac and Arro stole the show! The Adair family just keeps growing, and they’re some of my favorites as they are ridiculously supportive of one another. It’s really the merging of two families so far, which seems weird, but it’s also so amazing. I think that’s one of the things I love about this whole series, that everything’s a little out of the ordinary. There’s the romantic suspense aspect that adds to the storylines, but also the character connections are not normal in the best way.

I’m a little worried for the next book, only because of seeing the two brothers interactions with Eredine. I’m already leaning towards one over the other, and I really hope it works out that way. Can you tell I’m not a love triangle fan? Haha. I’m very interested to see what happens with the rest of the series in general, and I cannot wait to read them!
