4.5 STARS

Release Date: September 21, 2022

SYNOPSIS: Some fates are too tempting to deny… When single-father Levi Steele offers to help his daughter’s beautiful aunt Tara find a home on Silver Island, their intense connection makes it even harder to resist the one woman he and his daughter can’t afford to lose. Come along for the fun, sexy ride and fall in love on the sandy shores of Silver Island, home to coffee shops, boat races, midnight rendezvous, and the sexy, sharp-witted Steeles.


Some fates are too tempting to deny…

If you love single-parent romances, you won’t want to miss Always Her Love, an emotionally gripping, funny, and sinfully-hot story of forbidden love, with a much deserved and epic happily ever after. Fall in love on the sandy shores of Silver Island, home to coffee shops, boat races, midnight rendezvous, and the sexy, sharp-witted Steeles. They have a penchant for pranks, a passion for loyalty, and a trunk full of secrets. All Steele novels may be enjoyed as standalone romances.


REVIEW: I love the friendship Tara and Levi have! It was so fun seeing them question the relationship and lines getting blurred. Obviously, knowing that Tara has had this life-long crush on Levi, made me 100% root for them. I know that the relationship is a little taboo, with Levi being Tara’s sister’s baby daddy, but I still think they were meant to be. I loved seeing how they support one another, and how they love both love Joey so much. The changing dynamic with all three of them, and then their family/friends kept me totally enthralled. There are ups and downs, with some nice steam as well. I definitely recommend this single dad romance!

Second to None by K.A. Linde

4.5 STARS

Release Date: August 30, 2022

SYNOPSIS: Maddox Nelson is the only boy I’ve ever loved. And the only one to break my heart. I thought I was over that long ago. After drowning the heartbreak in two failed marriages, I should want safe and easy, and Maddox is nothing but complicated. Now that I’m back home in Savannah, I can’t deny the pull toward him. He’s the grumpy to my sunshine, the introvert to my extrovert, the uncompromising to my go with the flow. But years of friendship, love, and tangled lust binds us together in the city where it all began. When heat flies between us, he makes it clear that we already had our chance. Both of us should move on. Except I’m no longer okay with that idea. I’ll prove to him that I come second to none.


First love can’t come second.
A stand alone second chance grumpy sunshine romance about Josie & Maddox.


REVIEW: K.A. Linde puts grumpy/sunshine and best friend’s brother into this wonderful read. Oh, did I mention there is a small town and a great friends group? I was all in for this one. Not to mention, readers meet Maddox and Josie in the previous books of the series, Hold the Forever and At First Hate, and the anticipation of their story was at an all time high before it even came out! I just loved the angst, the pining, the way these two struggled to get it right. Josie was one of those characters I wanted to shake some sense into, but her childhood experiences didn’t make her equipped to deal with the seriousness of their relationship. Seeing these two grow and overcome the hurt, was so satisfying!

Garnet Flats by Devney Perry

4.5 STARS

Release Date: July 26, 2022

SYNOPSIS: Talia Eden loved Foster Madden for one year, two months and eleven days. It was on day 438 that her love died. The day he chose to marry her best friend. The day she vowed never to think of Foster again. Until years later when he has the audacity to show up in her small hometown of Quincy, begging for her help. The ink on his divorce papers is barely dry, yet he comes armed with apologies and promises. She knows it’s all a ploy. Foster is the king of games and secrets. But he’s got delusions the size of Montana if he thinks she’ll help him train for a world championship fight. Except Talia has forgotten exactly what made Foster famous. The man has dedicated his life to victory. He’s steadfast. He’s determined. And he won’t stop fighting until he’s won her heart.


REVIEW: In the previous book when we get the opening scene of this book, which is Talia avoiding Foster when he comes to Quincy. Right then, I had a feeling I would be totally intrigued by this one. Foster and Talia were all the angsty goodness. This story has so much depth and heartbreak and joy and everything in between. I loved the way Foster loved Talia. I love the way Talia loved foster. These two have had a difficult road, but I wanted happiness for them both so much. Each time they got a couple steps forward, they’d get hit with something that pushed them right back, but I still kept rooting for them. I sincerely enjoyed this entire story. I don’t want to give too much detail, because I really think that with everything that happens it’s important for the reader to just experience it as they go. Plus, I absolutely hate spoilers. Just know that this is an intense roller coaster ride of emotions, and you’ll definitely want to stick with it to find out what happens. 

Also that ending!! I love when Devney Perry sets us up for the next book, and while I already have known the synopsis of the next book, and knew I was really excited for it, I also love the little part for Lyla in the end. I am now counting down the days until we get her book which hopefully will be after the next one.

After meeting each Eden sibling in Indigo Ridge, but not learning a whole lot, I was so ready for all the books in this series. I’m so fascinated by them, and cannot wait to see what happens to each of them in this series. Not to mention these covers?! Yes, I most definitely purchased the paperbacks!!

Be With Me by Samantha Young

4.5 STARS

Release Date: July 11, 2022

SYNOPSIS: It was the friends-with-benefits proposition he never saw coming… While Arran Adair might have followed the call of wanderlust in his younger years, it isn’t the reason he stayed away from Ardnoch. Home now, desperate to put the sins of his past behind him, and rebuild his life in the Scottish Highlands, Arran could never have predicted Eredine Willows. The Ardnoch Estate Pilates instructor is a complicated mystery and one Arran can’t help but want to solve. Eredine has spent the last eight years hiding in Scotland and building walls between her and the people she cares about. Arran is the first Adair who doesn’t treat her as if she’s fragile and demands a genuine friendship. Yet, the attraction sizzling between them is undeniable. So when she realizes she trusts him, Eredine surprises them both by offering Arran one night of no-strings passion. Arran knows one night will inevitably lead to a desire for more and he’s willing to stay by Eredine’s side for as long as it takes to convince her there’s something real between them. However, just when Arran thinks they might build a future together, Eredine’s past returns to stalk her. And Arran won’t just have to battle her demons to keep them together. He’ll need to battle his own.


REVIEW: Oh this one was good! I love a man that is all in when it comes to the woman they want to be with. Eredine has major hold-ups and for good reason, but man did I want her to figure her issues out. Arran is total book boyfriend material. AND THAT CHEMISTRY!!! Seriously, when we finally get the steamy scene, I didn’t know how Ery held anything back from Arran after that. It was so interesting finally learning why he stayed away from the family, and seeing the impact this event had on him. There were times I didn’t love how they handled things, but in a way that made the story more realistic. I kind of figures some of the mystery out, but with the way Samantha Young writes, that doesn’t take away from the storyline!!

Love You Like That by Scarlett Cole

ALL THE DAMN STARS

Release Date: May 17, 2022

SYNOPSIS: Zoe Atkins wanted exactly one thing. To be the world’s greatest percussionist. Instead, she’s on a tour bus engaged in a stupid bet with rock star, Alex King, trying to fill the hole left behind when her dream gave up on her. The prickly former percussionist wasn’t supposed to steal his heart. With her distrust of lipstick and love of men’s pyjamas, she was everything playboy, Alex, didn’t want in a lover. At least, that’s what he thought when he bet her he could find her a hook up during their tour. Until he’s forced to watch the woman he’s come to desire leave the bar with her perfect guy, taking a piece of his already bruised and battered heart with her. Now it’s up to the Sad Fridays’ rocker to use his passionate powers of persuasion to convince Zoe he’s more than her wingman. He’s her everything.


REVIEW: I knew Alex‘s book had the potential to be my favorite, because Alex has been one of the most interesting characters throughout the series. He has shown emotionally intelligence and caring every single time he’s interacted with the main characters of the first three books. I wanted to know more about him and have been counting the days until we got his story. The wait was absolutely worth it.

I am in love with Alex and Zoe. Both of them have these aspects of their lives that are painful, traumatic, and heart wrenching to read about, yet they are both such awesome caring characters. And the things that make them “difficult” in others’ eyes are what make them perfect for one another.

It’s almost hard for me to write this review, because this book hit me so deep. I have so many amazing feelings about it that I don’t even know where to start. This whole series has been great and pulled at my heartstrings so much. The characters have gone through so many challenges, and readers get to see them work through everything that has happened them, see the impact it has on their relationships with each other and with their significant others. I think what I like about the series is it’s so freaking real. There are these difficult times that they grow through that are just so magical. The connections, the feelings, and the support of everyone in these books is just so fantastic. While I personally can identify with some of the things that Alex is going through, I can only imagine what Zoe is going through. Losing your hearing when being a musician is vital to who you are must be an absolute nightmare. Something I appreciated was seeing the people around her think they were helping/supporting her, but Alex being helpful and supportive in a way that actually worked. It was such a good example of not putting your beliefs and solutions onto another person, and I think that’s what made it even better. Alex has shown his emotional intelligence throughout the whole series when he has given advice or helped handle situations in the previous books, so I knew that he was going to being that into his own story. He has his own insecurities and hangups, but he takes the time to pause and reflect and really deal with what’s going on in the moment. It is just so refreshing to see all of it play out. The relationship that Alex and Zoe have is absolute relationship goals!

Honestly, I think I could talk all day about this book, but I think I’d rather just recommend you all read it! Do yourself a favor and read the whole series!! Feel all the emotions, learn about the different perspectives, and enjoy the wild ride the Sad Fridays are on.

Lastly, I want to sincerely thank Scarlett Cole for writing a Pansexual character so well. For showing what it actually means to be supportive and an ally. Showing that there will be mistakes, but the effort and willingness to learn and change is all that matters. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for this story.

The tattoo across my right hip says it all really. A Life Less Ordinary. Inked by the amazingly talented Luke Wessman at the Wooster Street Social Club (a.k.a. New York Ink). Why is it important? Well, it sums up my view on life. That we should all aspire to live a life that is less boring, less predictable. Be bold, and do something amazing. I’ve made some crazy choices. I’ve been a car maker, a consultant, and even a senior executive at a large retailer running strategy. Born in England, spent time in the U.S. and Japan, before ending up in Canada where I met my own, personal hero – all six and a half feet of him. Both of us are scorpios! Yeah, I know! Should have checked the astrological signs earlier, but somehow it works for us. We have two amazing kids, who I either could never part with or could easily be convinced to sell on e-bay. I’ve wanted to be a writer for a really long time. Check through my office cupboards or my computer and you’ll find half written stories and character descriptions everywhere. Now I’m getting the chance to follow that dream. I am represented by Beth Phelan at The Bent Agency, NY.
