Juniper Hill by Devney Perry

5 STARS

Release Date: January 11, 2022

SYNOPSIS: Memphis Ward arrives in Quincy, Montana, on the fifth worst day of her life. She needs a shower. She needs a snack. She needs some sanity. Because moving across the country with her newborn baby is by far the craziest thing she’s ever done.
But maybe it takes a little crazy to build a good life. If putting the past behind her requires a thousand miles and a new town, she’ll do it if it means a better future for her son. Even if it requires setting aside the glamour of her former life. Even if it requires working as a housekeeper at The Eloise Inn and living in an apartment above a garage.
It’s there, on the fifth worst day of her life, that she meets the handsomest man she’s ever laid eyes on. Knox Eden is a beautiful, sinful dream, a chef and her temporary landlord. With his sharp, stubbled jaw and tattooed arms, he’s raw and rugged and everything she’s never had–and never will. Because after the first worst day of her life, Memphis learned a good life requires giving up on her dreams too. And a man like Knox Eden will only ever be a dream.


Juniper Hill is Book 2 in the new small town family series: The Edens!


REVIEW: This story was just super sweet with a dash of suspense and drama. I liked Knox and Memphis a lot as characters. It was so fun seeing them get to know each other and try to resist each other. Knox is definitely a book boyfriend–tattoos, hot, driven, and family oriented. Memphis was a ridiculously strong female character, and I really enjoyed that about her. Everything she gave up and went through to get to this point, was really inspiring. I also loved how Knox dealt with her insecurities throughout the journey they were on. While I was definitely waiting for the drama to happen, it was interesting to see how it all played out! Devney Perry never disappoints. I always feel like I get a great romance, a great plot, and it ends up exactly how it should. Of course I’m really excited for Garnet Flats, especially with the little snippet we get at the end of this book!

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!!

Child of Mine by Karen Grey

Release Date: December 1, 2021

SYNOPSIS: The bigger the secret, the harder it is to hide. Single mom Isabella York was a celebrity before she had her first kiss, her first date, or her first sip of alcohol. Playing the bad girl—both on and off the set—allowed her to make up for lost time. Back home in Boston, with her “checkered past” behind her, all she wants is to raise her little girl far away from the spotlight, because revealing her secrets could mean losing everything, or gaining more than she ever hoped. For her, and her daughter. It’s not that Henry Smith hates kids—they don’t like him. Meanwhile, he’s stuck producing children’s TV, so he’ll try to tone down the grumpiness that’s dogged him since his life imploded seven years ago. After all, not everyone gets a second chance to chase his dream. If he plays his cards right at this new gig, he can move on to making television that will change the world, not just entertain a bunch of brats. Maybe he can charm the woman he never thought he’d see again into a do-over while he’s at it.


In this sexy, heartwarming, not-quite-historical romance—the latest Boston Classics standalone romcom—a sunshine/grumpy pair has to face the past to before they can find a future… together.

Okay, if you love 80s movies, you need to pick up Karen Grey’s books! The nostalgia for this time is wonderfully present throughout each couple’s journey to their happily ever after! Plus these covers are so freakin’ adorable!

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!

Friends with Benedicts by Staci Hart

5 STARS
Release Date:
June 7, 2021
SYNOPSIS: Timing is everything. Presley Hale and Sebastian Vargas are no strangers to goodbye. Their high school summers were spent wrapped up in each other until she would inevitably go home to California. One season after college, Sebastian finally escaped the little Texas town to travel the world, and they said goodbye for what they thought might be the last time. Sebastian went one way. Presley went the other. For the first time in five years, they’re both in town, but the timing is no better than ever. So the only thing to do is what they do best. Keep it casual. Friends with benefits. They’ve done it before—doing it again will be easy. But their hearts don’t get the memo. When the lines of their arrangement blur, Presley and Sebastian are faced with decisions they’ve avoided for years. And that’s not even their biggest problem.
A small town in danger of failing. A secret that could tear them apart. And two hearts that can’t hide anymore. They’ve shared so many summers, but none compare to what they’ll face. Timing is everything. And their time is almost up.


Friends With Benedicts is AVAILABLE NOW!
Are you ready for the perfect summer romantic comedy? It has everything from wicked banter to steamy steam to angst like only Staci Hart can bring.


REVIEW: This was very, very cute! There were a lot of layers to this story with the town, the characters, and everything they’ve dealt with over the years. Presley and Sebastian definitely handled coming back together fairly well with all the things considered. There was so much between them, and they definitely started to have miscommunications. When everyone’s telling them just to be honest and communicate with each other, and yet they don’t out of fear for what could possibly happen–it was pretty damn realistic. I really liked these two, and I really wanted to see them get their happy ever after! Especially after all the years they come together and then had to split apart. Cilla was absolutely adorable and a fun part of the story. It seems like we might be getting some stories about the Blums. I really do hope so, because they sound like a ton of fun! I definitely recommend you pick up this one!

Staci Hart

Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life: a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can’t forget that. She’s also been a mom to three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She’s been a wife, even though she’s certainly not the cleanest, nor is she the best cook. She’s also super, duper fun at a party–especially if she’s been drinking whiskey–and her favorite word starts with f and ends with k. From roots in Houston to a seven year stint in Southern California, Staci and her family ended up settling somewhere in between and equally north in Denver, where snow is magic and the mountains have become home. When she’s not writing, she’s reading, gaming, or designing graphics. Connect with Staci Hart here!

Bossing the Cowboy by Kennedy Fox

4 STARS

Release Date: May 11, 2021

SYNOPSIS: After surviving a messy divorce and custody battle, Dr. Connor Wallen quickly became married to his job. Helping animals is the perfect distraction from his crazy ex, but he finds it difficult to concentrate when an attractive woman joins his veterinary clinic. Getting involved with someone who works for him would only lead to disaster, so staying professional is key. He tries to ignore her, but their chemistry is undeniable.
Elizabeth Bishop can’t stand her boss or how he treats her, but there aren’t many job options in small-town Texas. No matter what she does, it’s never good enough for Connor, but she continues trying to impress him anyway. She’ll never admit she’s attracted to him and denies it every chance she gets. Avoiding him is impossible, but Elle keeps her distance whenever possible. After his walls start to crumble, she knows her feelings aren’t one-sided. She’s tired of playing his games and is ready to prove who’s really in control. Although he pushes her away, she’s determined to pull him closer—showing him exactly what they’ve both been missing.


Bossing the cowboy is Book 4 in the Circle B Ranch Series!
Bossing the Cowboy is a complete stand-alone and can be read without reading any of the other books or spin-off series, but if you prefer to read in order, start with Hitching the Cowboy as the characters and families do interconnect.


REVIEW: This one was a quick read, but a slow burn. Elle was just such a sweetheart and Connor was dealing with a lot. I really liked the dedication of these two had to each other, even though they weren’t actually together for years and didn’t know the other was interested! I am a sucker for this type of loyalty in characters, especially when they aren’t even together. It was also interesting how this story spanned over so many years. It’s always fun seeing all the Bishops and how they play a part in the different romances! They’re such a big awesome family with lots of kids and grandkids. This was just a feel good romance read.
