My Brother’s Forbidden Friend by Piper Rayne

5 Stars

Release Date: October 4, 2022

Synopsis: I’ve gone from crushing on my brother’s best friend to wanting to crush him. Cameron Baker and I have a few things in common. The first being that we were both born and raised in our small Alaskan town. Second, is that we hide our feelings and keep our hearts closed off from anyone who could break them. But hiding my feelings is harder to do with Cam than most. When I was five years old, grieving the loss of my mother, he showed me how big his heart is, and I’ve never forgotten. He comes from the richest family in town. Cam’s bad boy gorgeous, flirts like he has a Doctorate in charm, and he’s my brother’s best friend. That last part is where it gets tricky and the sole reason we’ve never crossed the line. Now, his parents have cut him off to force him to prove himself. I never thought he’d open a competing business to mine. So, I do what I do best, shove all my feelings aside and ready myself to crush him. Game on.


REVIEW: I cannot believe this is the end of the Greene Family series–well besides the little brother, but we’ll see about that set up that we caught a glimpse of in this one!If you love a good brother’s best friend, you definitely need this one! Also, let’s talk about the fact that these two are completely meant to be, and have been friends since they were children. They developed a bond when they were young, and it’s just kept growing! This gets real messy, with a crazy ex, forced proximity, and workplace competition. Seriously, this one had it all. I cannot believe we ended on such a high note. I love how Piper Rayne has written these family series that pull you in and keep you hooked until the very last one is coupled up!

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!

Always Her Love by Melissa Foster

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!

Take Me to the Lake by Kaci Rose

3.5 STARS

Release Date: September 20, 2022

SYNOPSIS: Someone is watching me. Luckily my mountain man is watching over me.
 
Hope: I didn’t think they would find me here. I moved to the small town of Whiskey River three months ago, hoping I would finally be safe from my past. For the first time in a long time, I feel like I can breathe easier. Then I meet the mountain man who makes my breath quicken. And my heart race. He’s my protector – safe in his strong arms. But my past is coming for me… and he might end up paying the price.
 
Cash: The tracks along the treeline were my first clue. I might not have experience with women, but I know my way around the woods. And Hope is not safe living out here alone. And I’m pretty sure that’s my fault. Her stalker knows I have money, and that I’ll pay any price to keep the woman I love safe from harm. But what her stalker doesn’t know is that I plan on making them pay instead.


Take Me to the Lake is Book 3 in the Mountain Men of Whiskey River Series!


REVIEW: First of all, can we discuss this cover?! Yes, please, take me to the lake sir. I have liked the vibe of the covers on this series, but this one is by far my favorite–surprising with no abs, I know! Anyway, there is an on-going theme in this series of men embody some very masculine traits, yet wouldn’t meet all the expectations set by society of a man. It’s the perfect juxtaposition to make an intriguing male character that you need to know all about. I love that the men are protective of the women they meet. I love that the romantic suspense side pulls you in, and that the crazy/idiotic ex’s are shown whose boss. I feel like I kind of know what I’m getting with these books, and that is perfect for my mood at times. I hope you enjoy these characters as I did!

My Fake Fiancé Friend by Piper Rayne

5 Stars

Release Date: August 23, 2022

Synopsis: I never felt truly desired by a man—until him. My sisters are always the ones who catch a guy’s eye at first sight. I’m used to attracting guys because I’m funny, or kind, or have a beautiful face. Never has my curvy figure drawn the attention of a man as hot as Noah. But the second he stepped foot into my small town Alaskan inn, his gaze swept over me with desire, igniting a flame I thought was dead. He flirted with me, and I might’ve left two chocolates on his pillow at turndown, but that’s where it stayed. Over the years, he’s floated in and out of town while a friendship developed between us. Which is probably for the best because I’m not a one-night stand kind of woman. Which is funny because when he propositions me to be his fake fiancé in order to end a family feud, it turns out I am the kind of woman willing to pretend to be the one he’s in love with.


REVIEW: I was totally intrigued by Noah’s mystery when he first appeared in the series, and so I was pretty excited for this one. It definitely lived up to my expectations! Not only did I enjoy each characters, but I also enjoyed the relationship as it developed. I really love a good fake relationship romance! We’ve seen Molly as the consistent in her mother’s life, and we get more on this and her place in the Greene family. Not to mention the realness of her struggles with self-image. After learning more about her, I feel for her hard! And Noah! He just worshipped this woman and I loved every moment of it. Oh, and did I mention we don’t only get Ethel and Dori, but Noah’s grandma too! I love these old ladies and their meddling ways. The Greene Family series is definitely ending with some amazing stories, and I CANNOT wait for book 9, My Brother’s Forbidden Friend!! I know this one is going to be a doooozy. Luckily, we get this one on October 4th and I am counting down the days!

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!

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!!
