Center of Gravity (An Ice Tigers Hockey Romance Book 2) by Isabella Cassazza – Review by Angelina Frazzini

Center of Gravity (Ice Tigers #2)Center of Gravity by Isabella Cassazza
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Center of Gravity by Isabella Cassazza is book two of Ice Tigers Hockey Romance. This book is a friends to lovers sports romance and is also a standalone so it can be read in any order.

Emilia loves under her grandfather’s thumb and while everything looks perfect from the outside, she’s a Ravelli after all, not everything is always as it seems. Now she’s being sent to Boston to manage a hockey team after being less than successful in other areas of the family business. Emilia will need to keep up appearances even though her life is about to change drastically. Matt has never faced betrayal the way he is now. It feels like he’s lost everything. The only thing left for him is the chance to win the cup. Then he meets the new team owner. Will these two be able to find themselves again? Will they lean on each other to make up for all they’ve lost?

This is the first book I’ve read by this author and I was not disappointed. The book flowed so well, the ending came much quicker than I wanted it too. I need to go back and read book one now! These characters are great! I felt for Emilia. You could tell she was trying so hard but nothing really seemed to please her grandfather. Matt felt hopeless but that didn’t keep him from wishing and maybe even dreaming a little. I couldn’t get enough!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Two Hearts Unspoken Targets by Tamara Ferguson is book eleven of the Two Hearts Wounded Warrior Romance series.

Like the other books in the series, this book introduces us to a wounded warrior, in this case Zach, who needs to restart their life away from the military, come to terms with the changes and hopefully one day find love. Zach needs to make some changes and the only way he can think of doing that is by accepting a job at the wounded warrior facility and moving.

An opportunity comes up for Beth’s son and given her current situation, she sees no reason not to accept. Beth and Zach meet at the beach and boy if the sparks don’t fly right away. Zach is so patient with Kyle that Beth can’t help the attraction she feels. It’s not too long before Zach’s flashbacks might bring trouble to their door.

These books can be read in any order. I highly recommend this series. Watching the characters overcome challenges they thought would hold them back is one of the best parts about reading these books!

Being Lost (Satan’s Devils MC San Diego #1) by Manda Mellett – Review by Angelina Frazzini

Being Lost (Satan's Devils MC San Diego #1)Being Lost by Manda Mellett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Being Lost by Manda Mellett is book one of the Satan’s Devils MC San Diego Series. Manda doesn’t get it wrong with these MC books and this one is no exception!

Lost is feeling the weight of the MC on his shoulders. He didn’t expect to become Prez and now he has to make sure he does right by the club. The Tucson chapter requested that they keep an eye on a woman and her son moving to the area. Lost doesn’t expect Patsy and especially doesn’t think he deserves a chance. Patsy had to make an extremely hard decision when she decided to move away and start a new life with her son. Now, danger is knocking at their door. Patsy has lived her life. She doesn’t need a man. Which makes meeting Lost a surprise for her. Even better because he’s attracted to her too! Patsy is so much stronger than she gives herself credit for. After all, she made an impossible decision and is sticking with it despite the danger she faces. Lost doubts himself at every turn but no way will he let that interfere with his obligations to the club. Will these two work through their issues so they can work on being together?

I couldn’t put this book down. I had to find out what was going to happen next. Patsy and Lost both went through a lot in their lives but still wanted to work through it all to be together. I really enjoyed these characters and this book!

Be One with Me (Finding Love in Green Springs Book 2) by CA Miconi – Review by Angelina Frazzini

Be One with Me (Finding Love in Green Springs, #2)Be One with Me by C.A. Miconi
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Be One With Me by CA Miconi is book two of the Finding Love in Green Springs series. There is some overlap from book one so I highly suggest reading the books in order but that shouldn’t be a hardship as both books are enjoyable!

Sally and Nolan both know a little about cancer and the pain loss can cause. Sally is independent and intelligent bit after the loss of her mom, finds herself a bit lost and running from the only life she’s known. Nolan also knows the feeling of loss. He however had no plans of leaving Green Springs. He’s got his business to take care of but he can’t help but feel lonely. Sally and Nolan no doubt are attracted to each other and have in common the loss caused by cancer but is that enough for them to build a relationship on?

This book was so sweet but also had some very emotional moments. You couldn’t help but root for Sally and Nolan’s happiness. I couldn’t put this book down!

New Jerk in Town (Carolina Kisses, #2)New Jerk in Town by Sylvie Stewart
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

New Jerk in Town by Sylvie Stewart is book two of the Carolina Kisses series. This book has a little bit of everything – second chance, enemies to lovers, friends to lovers. It’s definitely a good read.

Milo and Jill haven’t seen each other in 12 years and the last time they saw each other, it wasn’t good. There’s still some resentment even all these years later but now Jill needs somewhere to stay and Milo is stepping up. With them both staying under the same roof, they have the chance to get to know each other all over again because after all, 12 years is a long time.

Dares & Dice (Spicetopia #5) by Phoebe Alexander – Review by Angelina Frazzini

Dares & Dice (Spicetopia Book 5)Dares & Dice by Phoebe Alexander
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Dares and Dice by Phoebe Alexander is book five of the Spicetopia Series. This series can be read in any order but let’s be real the whole series is good so you might as well read them in order!

Makenna is out to enjoy her bachelorette party. I mean she took her bridesmaids to the Bahamas after all! If her maid of honor has anything to say about it, they will definitely be enjoying themselves at Spicetopia. What they don’t expect is that a bachelor party will also be happening. Ty is thrilled to be away from his family celebrating his bachelor party with his friends. If he won’t enjoy the wedding or even the marriage, might as well enjoy the party. Neither Ty nor Makenna expected the best man and maid of honor to conspire but they have and they are daring Ty and Makenna – all bets are off! Who knows maybe this party is just what they need!

This was such a fun book to read as are many of the other books by this author. She always pulls you into the story so it feels like you are there enjoying the events just as much as the characters are. I highly recommend!
