The Single Dad by Marni Mann

4.5 STARS

Release Date: June 28, 2022

SYNOPSIS: Most college-aged girls go to Europe to experience their sexual awakening. All I had to do was come home. Ford Dalton isn’t the kind of man I’d look at twice—because I can’t stop looking at him at all. We can’t take our hands off each other in the bar. Back at his house, it’s our lips. And in his bed?  There isn’t a single part of us that’s not on fire.  One night would never be long enough for Ford to show me every delicious thing he can do to my body. But there’s something he’s keeping from me: he’s already met the love of his life. His daughter, Everly. And there’s something I’m keeping from him: I just applied for the job of my dreams. Everly’s new nanny.


A sexy single dad and nanny romance!
There are five stand-alone books in the Dalton Family Series:

The Lawyer
The Billionaire
The Single Dad
The Intern
The Bachelor


REVIEW: This was a total feel good romance. There was no over the top ridiculous drama, but a slow building on connection and chemistry between these two characters. Sydney‘s relationship with Everly was super cute. The way Ford wants Sydney is totally book boyfriend material. While there was some questionable maneuvering, I think the connection outweighed it for them. True to this series from Marni Mann, you get all the steamy scenes paired with a meant to be connection. This was a great single dad/nanny romance!

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.

We Were Something by Jillian Liota

5 STARS

Release Date: July 26, 2021

SYNOPSIS: Logan Becker came out of nowhere. After a disastrous first meeting, the handsome pediatric surgeon is suddenly all I can think about. Sure, he’s older than me and fresh off a divorce, but we can have a little fun, right? Nothing serious. Only… Logan isn’t the kind of man to just play around. His slow and steady approach has me nearly bursting at the seams and desperate for more of anything he’s willing to give me. His time. His body. His attention. Maybe even his love.
Paige Andrews came out of nowhere. She’s sexy, confident and far too young for me, not to mention the fact we come from two different worlds. I’m into early mornings and efficiency, while Paige believes in late nights and dancing your problems away. But still, I can’t seem to get enough of her. Of her sassy smile, her flirtatious laughter, her body writhing beneath mine. And when things become more serious, I have to ask the ultimate question: Can something unexpected turn into something real?


We Were Something is the third book in the Hermosa Beach Series.
It is highly recommended that all books in the series be read in order as they contain significant spoilers and interwoven storylines.
The first book in the series is called Promise Me Nothing


REVIEW: What an ending to the Hermosa Beach series! There’s been so much difficulty and drama for the people in this group, but I really loved each of their stories. Paige was such a Spitfire from the very beginning in Promise Me Nothing. I was really curious to get to know her better. Her journey with Logan was so enthralling. I really enjoyed how Paige adapted herself to meet Logan’s needs, but not in an unhealthy way. I also liked Logan even though he was really struggling with figuring out how to even be around Paige. Even thought Logan was the older one with more experience, he was definitely not the smarter one when it came to their relationship. Which was probably because his ex was a real piece of work! Lots of heartache in this one, but I was happy to see these two get their happy ending. I sincerely enjoyed this series and would definitely recommend it if you’re looking for emotional contemporary romances!

Give My Everything by Jillian Liota

5 STARS

Release Date: April 6, 2020

SYNOPSIS: Ben Calloway is my new fiancé. When he suggests we get married, I nearly laugh in his face. That is… until he points out just how much I need him. I’m single, pregnant and alone in a tight-knit town I ran away from five years ago. I’ve burned every bridge there is to burn in Hermosa Beach, and assumed my life would just continue to go up in flames. But who knows? Marrying Ben just might be the answer to all of my problems. Remmy Wallace is my new bride-to-be. I wanted a family once. Until an act of betrayal stole my vision for the future. Now, I’m lying in wait until I can figure out how to bring down the man who hurt me. And marrying Remmy could be exactly what I need. She wants to know what I get out of the deal, but what am I supposed to say? Not the truth, that’s for sure. My reasons are my own, and I plan for them to stay that way.
Welcome to Hermosa Beach.


Give Me Everything is the third book in the Hermosa Beach Series.
It is highly recommended that all books in the series be read in order as they contain significant spoilers and interwoven storylines.
The first book in the series is called Promise Me Nothing


REVIEW: There’s something really intriguing to me about characters that aren’t seen in the best light in prior books in the series. Ben has been a little bit of a mystery, so getting to know him more was really fun! And Remmy, well, the first impression wasn’t great in Be Your Anything. She didn’t do anything that I thought was really horrible, but I was really interested in learning her backstory. I needed to know what got her to the situation she was in with Lucas and why she treated him the way she did. It was just enjoyable seeing these to fall for each other and learn more about each other throughout the story. Their chemistry was really wonderful throughout the book as well. Although Ben was definitely attracted to Remmy, he did a good job about not making it just about physical stuff between them. He definitely did not have altruistic motives in the beginning, but the way he proceeded throughout the journey they were on made me really like him as a character. Overall, I kind of fell for these two and I’m glad we got their story.
