Sure by Jillian Liota

4.5 STARS

Release Date: March 22, 2022

SYNOPSIS: Colton Palmer’s world has just imploded. In addition to sorting through his grief in the wake of unexpected betrayal, he also has to face the fact that his life as a stay-at-home dad is no longer a reality. Hiring someone to take care of his 3-year-old son is the last thing Colton wants… but he’s out of options. Emily Burns is desperate to find a nannying job that allows her to stay in Sandalwood, even one working for the pompous jackass she exchanged verbal blows with at the bar. The guy might be an angry you-know-what, but he’s been through a lot and she decides to cut him some slack. Besides, beggars can’t be choosers, after all. When lines are crossed and their relationship becomes physical, Colton and Emily are faced with the difficult task of deciding whether this thing between them is just a little fun, or a possible forever. But when it comes to matters of the heart, how can anyone ever be sure?


Sure is book 1 to Jillian Liota’s new Sandalwood Series!


REVIEW: This book gave me exactly what I love about Jillian Liota’s romances. There is always at least one moment where one character educates the other on a very real situation that they have no idea about. In this case, Emily explains to Colton the danger of turning down a man’s advances in certain situations. I absolutely adored this moment. This story was definitely more of a slow burn, and Colton has a lot he needs to work out. The characters are messy and real. The emotions were all over the place. If you want to feel while you’re reading, Liota’s books will always pull the emotions right out of you! I’m excited to see what Sandalwood will be us next.

Solo by Jillian Liota

5 STARS

Release Date: March 1, 2022

SYNOPSIS: Soren Lock has held a torch for his ex, the mother of his 7-year-old daughter, for as long as he can remember. Even though life has kept them apart, a piece of him has always believed they would come back to each other in the end. That is…until she shows up in Sandalwood with a new fiancé.
Ozzy Zelasko has been dealt a pretty rough hand in life, so she tries to keep complications to a minimum. She has two jobs that help her scrape by, and she spends her free time with her ailing grandmother, and trying to paint when she can. But she can’t help the way her sexy new boss makes her heart skip a beat.
When Soren and Ozzy find distraction in each other, they find a way to free themselves from the emotional rollercoaster of life, just for a little while. But the two are both committed to keeping everything as uncomplicated as possible. Can they find a way to make this unexpected connection work long-term? Or are they both destined to face life solo?


Solo is the prequel to Jillian Liota’s new Sandalwood Series!


“I can almost hear her battling with herself through the phone. It’s a struggle I’m all too familiar with, the one where independent people try not to rely on anyone else for help. It’s the life I live every day, and listening to the silence as Ozzy tries to convince herself she’s fine on her own makes me sad. For both of us. For everyone who feels like they are a burden.”

THIS. This is why I love Jillian Liota’s writing.

REVIEW: For a novella, this was amazing! When Soren’s baby momma was still kind of in the picture, I wasn’t sure how I was going to feel about the story, especially with it being short. I’m not a fan of love triangles. In the way only Jillian Liota can, the story progressed in the best way and was anything but a love triangle. I love the realistic and complex emotions Soren and Ozzy dealt with, and how they started something together that brought to light their similarities. I felt like they were just meant to find one another. I don’t want to give too much away, but obviously I’d recommend you check this one out. It also has me ridiculously excited for, Sure, which is book 1 in the Sandalwood series coming out March 22nd.

My Kind of Perfect by Nikki Ash

5 STARS

Release Date: May 27, 2021

SYNOPSIS: Georgia – I’m surrounded by love, yet have no one to call my own. But then Chase, my new roommate, is suddenly there. He could be the perfect guy for me, if he wasn’t nursing a broken heart. The more time I waste looking for love, the more I realize that what I want has been right in front of me all along. Falling for Chase is the easiest thing I’ve ever done, but fighting for him is the hardest. Because his past isn’t finished with him— not even close.

Chase – Love finds you when you least expect it. I was only looking for a place to crash after having my heart ripped out, instead I found someone who turned my world upside down. A girl like Georgia was looking for happily ever after, and so far my life had been anything but a fairytale. I can walk into a burning building without thinking twice, but the spark I feel with her scares the hell out of me. I can’t keep watching her look for someone else—not when I’m falling for her. Just when everything starts to fall into place, I’m reminded just how messy and imperfect life can be. When the smoke clears, it’s Georgia by my side. Life might not be perfect— but our love could be.


This roommates to lovers, single dad romance is book three in Nikki Ash’s emotional Finding Love Series!


REVIEW: We meet both of these characters in the previous book, and so I kind of thought I knew how their story would go, but I was pleasantly surprised by how different it went! The beginning of their relationship was perfection. I really loved how Chase and Georgia acted while around each other. The way Chase treats her as they got closer, was freakin’ adorable. Honestly, the way the relationship grew made me so happy. Their friendship was just so heartwarming. In true Nikki Ash fashion, the dramatic scenes may have caused a gasp or two. There is this part that’s just so true to human nature, where one of the characters takes out their own issues on the other while struggling with a horrific situation. I hated it and loved it, because it felt so real. And I think the aftermath of that horrible blowup was handled really well. The realness in this one just worked for me. It was also really cute seeing characters from the previous books in the epilogue! The on-going joke about Lexi’s cooking is still hilarious. If you’re looking for romances that pull at the heartstrings, this is the series you’re looking for!

Thank you to Nikki Ash for the ARC in exchange for an honest review!

Return to Us by Corinne Michaels

5 STARS

Release Date: February 23, 2021

SYNOPSIS: At eighteen, I walked away from Willow Creek Valley for good. I was young, scared, and stupid, and it cost me the love of my life—Grayson Parkerson. Fourteen years later, a crash sends me back home to recover. Back to where we met, fell in love, and planned a future. The one he’s now living as a single dad to his daughter. Working at The Park Inn together gives us a chance to reconnect, and seeing him with his little girl makes me long for the days when he was mine. One look in his gorgeous blue-green eyes, and it’s like I never left. One kiss, and my world is upside down. One night together, and I know without a doubt, in his arms is where I belong. I’m not the girl I was—intimidated by his wealthy family and desperate to escape our small town. I can imagine a new life for us here. But he’s learned to guard his heart, and trust won’t come easily. How can I convince him to give first love a second chance?


From New York Times Bestselling author Corinne Michaels comes a new second chance standalone love story.


REVIEW: This one is going to hit you right in the feels. I’m obsessed.

Corinne Michaels always does a really great Second Chance Romance and this one was no different! Grayson and Jessica had such a great back story and I love that you could feel their love for each other throughout the whole book. Even when there are issues, I could still feel they’re strong connection and chemistry. All of this made them a couple I was completely invested in.

Grayson’s relationship with his daughter Amelia was absolutely adorable. Amelia is too cute and brings so much to the story! The interactions between Amelia with almost anyone were heartwarming–even the friends like Jack and her aunt Stella, just made me smile.

I also really love Jessica and Jacob Arrowood’s relationship that was solidified from the traumatic experience they share in the beginning of the book. I think it’s really cool when the author brings characters from her other books as side characters, because we get to see those characters we loved in a whole new setting. A theme I really appreciate in books is portraying therapy in a good light, because I personally believe therapy is an amazing tool. The therapist in this book was perfect! She asked great probing questions that I think Jessica needed to hear. I enjoyed how Jessica talked about therapy–she hated it, but loved it at the same time. Her Traumatic Brain Injury added so much to her as a character, and watching her heal was amazing.

Overall this book was the perfect journey with some drama, lots of love, and a perfectly happy ending! I’m really excited to see where this series goes with the rest of the siblings, and the fallout from what’s going to happen with their family and their parents.

Thank you so much to Corinne Michaels and Valentine PR for the ARC in exchange for an honest review!

Only One Kiss by Natasha Madison

4.5 STARS

Release Date: September 1, 2020

SYNOPSIS: Ralph – Being traded to Dallas was a dream come true. I had everything I wanted, my game had never been better, and my wife was due to have our baby any day now. What could go wrong? Everything. I was now raising our baby on my own. After hockey practice and games, I didn’t have time to sleep, let alone make sure my social media was up to par. I never thought I’d get a second chance at love.
Candace – When my hotshot brother was drafted in the NHL, he didn’t have time to do his social media, so I took over for him. Little did I know it would become my career. My plate was full with over fifty NHL players, and I wasn’t taking on any new clients. Yet when he showed up on my doorstep with the cutest little girl in the whole world, I couldn’t say no. I was just helping, but it turned into more than that. He’s the man I’ve been waiting for. All it takes is one touch, one night, one chance, and only one kiss.


REVIEW: Brand new single dad and Hockey player, yep sign me right up for this one. I so enjoyed reading this and experiencing the connection between Candice and Ralph. Ralph’s back story was everything, and the relationship with the diseased mother of his child was so layered and added so much to the story. Candice’s interactions with her niece and Ralph’s daughter are so precious! She is such a great female lead. Of course the other shoe drops, but what kind of story would it be without a little drama. I’m looking forward to reading this whole series!
