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!

My Famous Frenemy by Piper Rayne

4.5 STARS

Release Date: January 25, 2022

SYNOPSIS: Hollywood heartthrob, Gavin Price invaded our small town, Sunrise Bay, like he owned it. Gavin was my biggest celebrity crush when I was young. He bears the charisma of an easygoing boy-next-door mixed with a rule-breaker personality both in person and on screen. For a moment, I thought maybe my fairy godmother sent him to me. Until he decided to run against my mother for mayor. Everyone in our town knows my mom’s happiness comes before my own, so I take it as my personal mission to show him who really runs this town. I just didn’t realize that being my mom’s right-hand woman would put me in such close proximity to him. Very quickly, I question whether he wants to win the mayoral race or me.


This is Book 6 in The Greene Family Series!


REVIEW: This one turned out to be cute! A reoccurring theme with all of the Greene siblings is that they’re pretty guarded after their childhood experiences. That being said, in the beginning I was more frustrated with Gavin than I was with Posey. As the story went on that swapped. Haha. The loyalty Gavin had to Posey completely won me over. I just wanted them to be happy despite the fact that Gavin was running against her mom for mayor. One of the things I love about Piper Rayne books is that the side characters bring so much comedic relief. Of course grandma Ethel and Dori were there to bring their own brand of comedy within Northern lights retirement home, but I also loved the addition of Erwin who was Gavin‘s assistant. He was just a little bit odd, but with the perfect timing for all the laughs. And of course, Piper Rayne gave us a little teaser of the next one which makes me really excited to get Xavier and Clara’s story! I feel like it is going to be a dooooozy.

I sincerely love The Greenes and it’s so awesome that you can start with the parents’ story (Hank and Marla) in My Twist of Fortune!

My Sister’s Flirty Friend by Piper Rayne

5 STARS

Release Date: November 2, 2021

SYNOPSIS: I broke the cardinal rule and slept with my sister’s best friend. Granted, I’d just found out that I was now a single father to a three-year-old little girl and was low on willpower. It should also be noted that there’s been sexual tension between us for years. There’s no way it would be a surprise if anyone in our small town found out. That is if we were telling people, which we’re not. We’re in agreement to keep our affair a secret, especially since neither one of us do relationships.  You’ve probably figured it out already, but things didn’t go as planned.


This is Book 4 in The Greene Family Series!


REVIEW: I absolutely love how Jed’s story was done. For me, a romance about a guy that is seen as a player or a ladies man can be really easy to ruin. But piper Rayne did a fantastic job! I love the friendship and the development of feelings between Jed and Molly. I also love how all the Greenes and the meddling grandmas play a part in their story. Emilia was such a joy in this one as well. Watching the developing relationships between her and both Jed and Molly was absolutely precious. This book was just done so well and I enjoyed every single minute of it. I love the realness of their experiences playing a part in their worldview, as well as the growth that takes place because of those experiences. This book left me with a smile on my face. This series is turning out to be really fun and I’m really excited for the next book with Fisher. As usual, we get a nice little sneak peek at the end of this book about the next one, My Unexpected Surprise, and let’s just say I am counting down the days until I get to read it (December 14th if you’re curious). I sincerely love The Greenes and it’s so awesome that you can start with the parents’ story (Hank and Marla) in My Twist of Fortune!

The Wicked Aftermath by Melissa Foster

4.5 STARS
Release Date: June 9, 2021
SYNOPSIS: When the person you blame for your grief is the only one who can save you from the pain… Tank Wicked lost his sister and has since vowed to save everyone else in his path. He lives by the creed of the Dark Knights motorcycle club, sworn to protect and respect his community. He selflessly saves lives as a volunteer firefighter and treats the men and women who work for him at his tattoo shop like family. But life isn’t a balance scale where good deeds negate bad things to come, and one foggy night life guts Tank once again. When a car careens over the side of a bridge and into a river, Tank springs into action, plunging into the water to rescue the passengers. Four people go into the river, but only three come out alive. Leah Yates is just trying to make it through each day. When the man she blames for her grief becomes the only one who can pull her from the depths of despair, she discovers that even hope comes at a price. Maybe this time she won’t have to face it alone.


The THE WICKED AFTERMATH is an emotionally gripping story of love, loss, and hope, with a rich and entrancing happily ever after.
Set on the sandy shores of Cape Cod, the Wickeds feature fiercely protective heroes, strong heroines, and unbreakable family bonds. If you think bikers are all the same, you haven’t met the Dark Knights. The Dark Knights are a motorcycle club, not a gang. Their members stick together like family and will stop at nothing to keep their communities safe. Some of the Wickeds’ love stories will be hilariously fun and deeply emotional, others will tear at your heartstrings and include injections of humor, but they will all leave you wishing you could climb between the pages and join them. All Wicked novels may be enjoyed as standalone romances.


REVIEW: This book was just so heartwarming and sweet! Tank is definitely a new book boyfriend. Something that really adds to the story are the different family dynamics between Leah and her small family, and the large Wicked clan. There’s just so much love and caring within them. The quirky little things make you really excited to learn about all of the characters. The connection between these two is so touching. I loved seeing Tank with Leah, but also with the girls! This book illustrates grief as a process. It’s interesting that it is grief that really connects both Tank and Leah. Overall, I really like the growth of the relationship and I loved seeing the small family that they formed! Also, the cover is hot as hell and I will definitely need to own a physical copy!

My Vegas Groom by Piper Rayne

4.5 STARS

Release Date: May 18, 2021

SYNOPSIS: Waking up next to a stranger wearing a wedding ring was not on the itinerary.

I came to Las Vegas for a quick girl’s trip, but somehow ended up a married woman. What I thought would stay in Vegas followed me back to my small town of Sunrise Bay, Alaska. Of course, my new husband—MMA champion fighter, Logan Stone—couldn’t find me alone at my house to tell me he wants to give our impromptu nuptials a shot. He has to tell me in front of my entire family and half the town.  The two of us couldn’t be more opposite, but he offers me a deal I can’t refuse which involves me pretending we’re happily married for three months. Yeah, a lot of things can change in that short amount of time, most importantly catching feelings for a man whose lifestyle I despise.


This is Book 3 in The Greene Family Series!


REVIEW: The Greene Family is making me so happy! When Nikki causes trouble for her brother Cade in My Beautiful Neighbor, I knew she was going to feel the karma when it came time for her book. It’s really interesting to have her mom and step-dad’s story (Hank and Marla) in My Twist of Fortune, then find out more about how what happened with her parents impacts her as an adult. She has some justifiable issues that play a part in her relationships. Luckily, Logan is perfect for Nikki, even if she can’t see it! He is definitely a new book boyfriend! I just loved how he handled everything throughout the whole story. His relationship with his mom was so endearing too! I also liked the trust and devotion that developed between these two. I feel like they find themselves in a really healthy relationship despite the start and issues that came their way. I’m really looking forward to the next book with the little surprise that Piper Rayne dropped at the end of this one. It’s right up my alley and one of my favorite tropes, so you can probably guess what that means!
