Always You by Samantha Young


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!

We Were Something by Jillian Liota


Release Date: July 26, 2021

SYNOPSIS: Logan Becker came out of nowhere. After a disastrous first meeting, the handsome pediatric surgeon is suddenly all I can think about. Sure, he’s older than me and fresh off a divorce, but we can have a little fun, right? Nothing serious. Only… Logan isn’t the kind of man to just play around. His slow and steady approach has me nearly bursting at the seams and desperate for more of anything he’s willing to give me. His time. His body. His attention. Maybe even his love.
Paige Andrews came out of nowhere. She’s sexy, confident and far too young for me, not to mention the fact we come from two different worlds. I’m into early mornings and efficiency, while Paige believes in late nights and dancing your problems away. But still, I can’t seem to get enough of her. Of her sassy smile, her flirtatious laughter, her body writhing beneath mine. And when things become more serious, I have to ask the ultimate question: Can something unexpected turn into something real?

We Were Something is the third book in the Hermosa Beach Series.
It is highly recommended that all books in the series be read in order as they contain significant spoilers and interwoven storylines.
The first book in the series is called Promise Me Nothing

REVIEW: What an ending to the Hermosa Beach series! There’s been so much difficulty and drama for the people in this group, but I really loved each of their stories. Paige was such a Spitfire from the very beginning in Promise Me Nothing. I was really curious to get to know her better. Her journey with Logan was so enthralling. I really enjoyed how Paige adapted herself to meet Logan’s needs, but not in an unhealthy way. I also liked Logan even though he was really struggling with figuring out how to even be around Paige. Even thought Logan was the older one with more experience, he was definitely not the smarter one when it came to their relationship. Which was probably because his ex was a real piece of work! Lots of heartache in this one, but I was happy to see these two get their happy ending. I sincerely enjoyed this series and would definitely recommend it if you’re looking for emotional contemporary romances!
