REVIEW: Oh this one was very, very fun! I specifically picked it up because of K.A. Linde giving us more Camden and Katherine from my favorite series of hers. I read the wedding night short story about these two, and then immediately re-read Cruel Marriage so I could see my favorite couple’s angsty story again!! I would definitely recommend this book, especially if you want a little holiday taste of some awesome authors! Whether you’re revisiting some favorites, or discovering new authors and their characters, you can’t go wrong with this one. Plus, your purchase supports an awesome charity (better believe I bought a paperback)!

Roping Melanie by Melissa Ellen

4 STARS

Release Date: July 27, 2021

SYNOPSIS: I didn’t have a lot, but what I had I was proud of. I was raised to keep my head down and work hard. I followed the rules, rarely straying off the straight and narrow path. That’s why when the opportunity to get wild and have a little fun presented itself, I jumped on it—or more like on him. The handsome cowboy from the bar. It was one night in Vegas. Afterward, all I had was the memory of his body pressed to mine and the hotel room key I swiped as I snuck out. I never expected to see him again. I definitely never imagined he’d show up in my small hometown seven years later, only to discover the daughter he never knew about.


REVIEW: I found Melissa Ellen with the last book in this series, Tempting Tim, which I seriously enjoyed. When I saw this one was a single mom and small town romance, I knew I would be interested. Then I found out that they have a one-night stand, that leaves Melanie with a secret baby!? Yes, sign me up! And I really did enjoy this author’s story of Nash and Melanie. I enjoyed seeing them navigate the family dynamics seven years later. I mean what a surprise for Nash when he walked in that bar. I definitely would recommend this entire series!

ABOUT MELISSA

I’m an indie author that focuses on contemporary romance with a little bit of everything: humor, angst and sometimes suspense. A Reason To Stay, book one of the Blackwood Series, was my debut novel.

I grew up as a book worm, reading anything and everything and still try to read at least a book a week. I’ve always had an active imagination. Luckily, I now have time to put it to good use writing about characters that are constantly swarming around in my head.

I went from designing buildings to crafting stories. I’m a creative entrepreneur and coffee connoisseur.

REVIEW: Another great charity anthology! This one has a ton of fun novelettes that cover a ton of popular tropes.

Back in the Burbs by Avery Flynn & Tracy Wolff

4 STARS

Release Date: March 30, 2021

SYNOPSIS: Ever have one of those days where life just plain sucks? Welcome to my last three months–ever since I caught my can’t-be-soon-enough ex-husband cheating with his paralegal. I’m thirty-five years old, and I’ve lost my NYC apartment, my job, my money, and frankly, my dignity. But the final heartache in the suck sandwich of my life? My great-aunt Maggie died. The only family member who’s ever gotten me. Even after death, though, she’s helping me get back up. She’s willed me the keys to a house in the burbs, of all places, and dared me to grab life by the family jewels. Well, I’ve got the vise grips already in hand (my ex should take note) and I’m ready to fight for my life again. Too bad that bravado only lasts as long as it takes to drive into Huckleberry Hills. And see the house. There are forty-seven separate HOA violations, and I feel them all in my bones. Honestly, I’m surprised no one’s “accidentally” torched the house yet. I want to, and I’ve only been standing in front of it for five minutes. But then my hot, grumpy neighbor tells me to mow the lawn first and I’m just…done. Done with men too sexy for their own good and done with anyone telling me what to do. First rule of surviving the burbs? There is nothing that YouTube and a glass of wine can’t conquer.


Back in the Burbs is a hilarious enemies-to-lovers rom com!


REVIEW: Divorced, back at the parents, and in your thirties?! Yep, Mallory is on the hot mess express, and I loved every minute. I’m a huge Avery Flynn fan because she always makes me laugh out loud while reading, and this book was no exception. I enjoyed the journey Mallory went on after the bad hand life has dealt her. Cue Nick for all the swoony vibes. I wanted a little more romance, but if you like a story about a woman figuring it all out on her own, you’ll definitely like this one!

Rachel, Out of Office by Christina Hovland

4 STARS

Release Date: January 25, 2021

SYNOPSIS: Out of reach, out of touch, out of her mind. Single mom, Rachel Gibson seriously needs a break. Between an absent ex-husband, rowdy twin boys, managing the PTA, and running her own business, her candle isn’t burning at both ends, it’s a full-blown puddle of wax. She’s the go-to girl for other entrepreneurs, handling all the tasks they dread. Social media posts? She’s got it. Website updates? She’s on it. Light bookkeeping? Oh, yes. Thank goodness she’s about to get a reprieve when her in-laws plan to whisk her boys away for a summer of fun at the family lake house. But when her ex backs out of the family retreat, and her former inlaws insist she attend their yearly vacation summit with her munchkins, she finds herself in a pickle. Even though she’s drowning in to-dos, she’s horrible at saying no — especially when it comes to her kids Once Rachel arrives at the lake house, she struggles to keep up with work and balance the demands of family all the while fending off pesky new feelings about her ex-brother-in-law. Which makes her start to wonder… Is falling for her ex-husband’s brother just one more messy complication added to the dumpster fire?  Or is anything possible when she’s out of office…


An adorable romantic momedy!


REVIEW: This was super cute! The characters were very realistic, which made all the different relationship dynamics so relatable. It was great to see the characters interact in all the situations that came up. I’m a huge fan of forbidden romances like these, where some people don’t think they should be together, but they would really make each other happy. Travis is so much more than Rachel knows of him (which consists mostly of what her ex Gavin, Travis’ brother, told her). I really felt Travis proved himself again and again. Rachel kind of drove me crazy, because she’s trying to be the strong independent woman that does it all. I can totally respect that, but everyone needs help! I just liked seeing these characters grow and find the way they fit together. The angst and chemistry definitely made this an entertaining read!
