Falling Embers by Catherine Cowles

5 Stars!

Release Date: April 12, 2022

Synopsis: I’ve loved Calder Cruz from the moment he taught me how to fly. Racing down a mountain and giving me the release I so desperately needed. My understanding. My safe space. Hadley has fought for a life of her own ever since her sister’s kidnapping. When she was drowning in expectations and family pressures, Calder was always the one who understood her. Until one night changed it all. From best friends to strangers in a single breath. She’s like a fire that lives inside me. Even when I thought it was all burned out, there were still embers that lived in my bones. Calder knows what it’s like to almost lose the people he loves most. He’ll never make that kind of mistake again. Working at the fire station and taking care of his daughters are the only things he needs. All it takes is a single moment to make him realize how wrong he is. A split second of coming close to losing the woman he has always loved. But as long-buried embers light anew, there are those who lurk in the shadows. And they’ll do whatever it takes to extinguish that flame for good…


Review: This book, so many feelings!! After reading book one, Tattered Stars, which I absolutely adored, I was so excited for book 2. I had high hopes, especially with the little glimpses we get of Hadley and Calder in book 1, and this book was everything I wanted it to be! There was the romantic suspense angle that was intense and kept me invested in the overall story until the very end. Then there was Hadley and Calder themselves, with so much to unpack with both of these characters individually and together. I loved their backstories so much. I also enjoyed seeing everything play out and how these two worked together. Honestly, the range of emotions I felt during this book just reminded me that Catherine Cowles does not disappoint when it comes to steamy, romantic suspense that will break your heart, but stitch it right back up again. I sincerely cannot wait to see what happens in the rest of this series, because I know I’m going to love every emotional moment!!


Fall in love with Calder and Hadley today!

Tattered Stars by Catherine Cowles

5 Stars!

Release Date: February 1, 2022

Synopsis: Be brave. Just for sixty seconds. Twenty breaths. One night changed them both forever. Their lives shattered, beyond repair, with jagged edges and pieces askew. Now, Everly has a chance to make things right. To bring healing to the place where everything fell apart. But it means facing the family her father almost destroyed, and the boy with the dark eyes—now grown—who still haunts her dreams. Just one breath away from having your life ripped out from under you. The last thing Hayes wants is another reminder of all the ways he failed sixteen years ago. When Everly drives back into Wolf Gap, his only mission is to get her to leave. For his family’s sake, and for his own, those demons need to stay buried for good. But everything about this woman is a surprise, from her spine of steel to the sanctuary she hopes to create with the land her mother left behind. And Hayes is powerless to stay away. As a careful friendship sparks into something more, someone watches. And they’ll do anything to tear it all apart…


Review: I just love Catherine Cowles books!! This book was the perfect beginning to a new series, and I cannot wait to find out what happens to all of the characters that we met in this one. I’m so invested in Hayes’ family! I definitely teared up a little bit here and there with the trauma that some of the characters went through, but also happy tears for all the caring and depth they showed each other in moments that were very difficult. I loved Everly’s strength and growth. She was so caring and wonderful despite everything that happened to her. The Hayes and Everly not so meet cute as adults was the perfect start to an hate to love story, and I enjoyed Hayes’ growth after that! Even the growth in their relationship was wonderful. I liked the interactions between all the characters! There was a lot going on with the suspense part, but not an overwhelming amount. Catherine Cowles is a queen of romantic suspense and that’s why she’s become an auto-buy author for me. She does such a good job at weaving a story that’s layered with characters that have emotional depth and ties to the people around them that make you so invested in the whole group of characters. There’s no way I won’t keep going with reading the series. In other words, I absolutely love this book and it was exactly what I needed after reading some not so great books. I sincerely cannot wait for Falling Embers. Seeing how Hadley overcomes her struggles around relationships, and the very apparent sparks we see in this one. I’m also looking forward to seeing the twins more, and how they play into the story as well. This series has so much potential with the characters that were introduced in this first book!

Beautifully Broken Redemption by Catherine Cowles

5 Stars!

Release Date: November 9, 2021

Synopsis: She’s hiding secrets. For Anna, keeping her deepest scars hidden from the world has always been a necessity—from the bruises of her childhood to the mistake that nearly cost her everything. To keep herself safe, she must keep everyone around her at a distance—especially the man who has tempted her since the moment they met. His demons are taunting him. Mason has done his best to bury the past by achieving more than he ever thought possible. But even with all of his success, his life feels empty. When tragedy strikes, Anna is left fighting to protect the only family she has left. And Mason will do anything to keep her and her loved ones safe—even if that means the ring of wedding bells. But as a new spark ignites between them, someone is watching. And they’ll do whatever it takes to snuff out that light for good.


Review: Talk about tearing my heart out in the best way! I LOVED THIS ONE!! I sincerely enjoy romantic suspense that’s done right, and Catherine Cowles is amazing at writing these books. There is something about characters that have lived through a bunch of difficult experiences, but remain really good people that makes me so invested in them as characters. It also makes their happy ever after that much more satisfying. Mason is definitely going to be added to the book boyfriend list! His pursuit of Anna was so endearing. I enjoyed watching both of them try to figure out how to get past their own trauma responses in the current situations. Anna was such an awesome female lead–she’s just so strong, yet caring, and I really appreciated her as a person. Her hangups were totally valid, and although I wanted her to get over them for her own sake, it was done in a realistic way throughout the book. Anna and Mason’s interactions with her niece and nephew were absolutely precious and added so much to the story. I loved this book. I loved the whole storyline! There was so much going on, but in a way that wasn’t overwhelming and made the happy ever after that much better!! Seriously, read this one if you like romantic suspense, fake relationships, and a tragic backstory.

Love Next Door by Helena Hunting

4 STARS

Release Date: July 27, 2021

SYNOPSIS: When Dillion Stitch left her hometown, she had no intention of going back. But when her brother gets into trouble, Dillion reluctantly agrees to return home to take her place at the family business. Being back in Pearl Lake after all these years feels familiar, but also brings a few surprises. She’s quick to notice that someone new has shown up at the cottage next door.  Dillion gets more than an eyeful when she goes to check out the newcomer and meets Donovan “Van” Firestone—her beloved neighbor’s grandson—in all his unclothed glory. Having gotten off to a rocky start, it’s not long before they begin bickering with each other all over town. All that back and forth inevitably sparks an undeniable attraction. But Dillion’s family has issues, Van’s family resents him, and neither Dillion nor Van feels truly at ease in the small town. For these Pearl Lake exiles, home isn’t just where the heart is—it’s where things get complicated.


Love Next Door, an all-new sweet and endearing romance from New York Times bestselling author Helena Hunting is now live!


REVIEW: This is a new small town romance from Helena Hunting. Dillon is back in Pearl Lake, not necessarily by choice and Donovan has his own reason for being there. What I love about small town romances is very real in this one. The towns people themselves are like a character, one that’s always in your business and usually adding to your issues, but also giving that sense of community. Dillon and Donovan were okay, but I appreciate their open communication and support of one another once they got past their rough start. Overall, this book is for the reader looking for a small town romance with a lot going on.

Pause by Kylie Scott

3 STARS

Release Date: July 13, 2021

SYNOPSIS: When Anna wakes up from a coma after a car crash, she discovers life has gone on without her. Her husband has been unfaithful—with her best friend—and she’s been long since replaced at work. While her old life is a distant memory, her new life feels like an empty shell. Then she meets the stranger who saved her life during the crash, and he changes everything
Leif Larsen—tattooist, joker, and player—has his own scars thanks to the crash that put Anna in a coma. Helping her move on from her failed marriage, and create a new life, sounds like a perfect distraction. So when he needs a new roommate, he invites Anna to begin her new life with him.
Although their lives may have been put on pause, together they just might find a way to heal.


Pause, an all new emotional friends-to-lovers standalone romance from New York Times bestselling author Kylie Scott is available now!


REVIEW: I LOVED Repeat, the first Larsen Bros Book, so when I saw Leif was getting a book I knew I had to pick it up. Getting to know Leif and she what he experienced during his brother’s story made me so excited for him t get his HEA. And I really, really wanted to like this book. Unfortunately, there were just elements in it that I do not like in a romance. If I had known this going in, I would have just skipped it! The setup for this book was really interesting though. Anna and Leif are in a car accident, where Anna ends up in a coma. Leif reads to her in the hospital, but gets sent away by the cheating husband at some point. They end up starting a friendship, which is kind of comical, because they are so different from one another. And then things go a little haywire for me. They become roommates, he rejects her advances, they date other people… Yep. Not my cup of tea at all. I like loyalty between character even when they aren’t official. Obviously, this is a personal issue and many readers will not have this problem with this story line. What I do know is that both of these characters deserved the happiness they eventually find with each other! I hope you enjoy this book and don’t have my hangups.
