Nice guys winning PLUS snort inducing laughter EQUALS winning combination. Stewart had me engaged immediately and I instantly was rooting for our “good guy” to get the girl. I absolutely loved the plot and the character development. I love a good book that makes me laugh. Relatable and fun, this book is a must read and one you will have a hard time putting down. Loved it.

Unexpected and fantastic. This book had me hooked on page one. Just when life is perfect…enter the inevitable curve ball. I was thankful to read of a character so well written and formed to be the unexpected single father. Throw in the steamy romance and you’ve got yourself a winner. Loved it!

The Confectioners Truth by: Claire Luana is the third and final book in The Confectioners Chronicles. Much like the other books by this author in this series, once I stared the book I didn’t want to put it down. The sweet treats and characters are unlike any other story I have read. This book will keep you on your toes, and although it’s the last book, it will leave you wanting more. I can’t wait to see what this author does next, I will definitely continue to read her books. I give this book 5 stars easily, because the only complaint I have is I wasn’t ready for the book or series to end. Great Read!!

Wish Upon A Bollywood Star by Pamela Q. Fernandes is a Bollywood romance with secrets, drama, some humour, and lots of cultural details. Vir Seth finds himself in quite the predicament when Soumya Ninan decides to teach him a lesson about his attitude towards women and marriage. Vir’s world will be upended, battlelines will be drawn, while feelings become involved. What happens you ask? Well, you really need to read the book to discover all the details for yourself- no spoilers from me. This is a very short, quick and easy read. I liked Soumya, but I really found it hard to connect to Vir, or get invested in their story. I think this is because we really don’t get too ‘know’ him all that well. We get Soumya’s perspective throughout the story, but don’t get to understand things from his point of view, which would have perhaps made him more relatable. I wonder what Ms. Fernandes has in store for us next?

The Shape of Trust is the fifth book in the Stand By Me series by Brinda Berry. This series just seems to get better and better with each new release. I have really loved this series, so when this book was released I knew I just had to read it- but I wasn’t sure I would love it as much as the other four books. Well, I should never have doubted Ms. Berry, because the characters and storyline won me over immediately, and this book has now become my favourite of the series. As with the other books, Ms. Berry has produced a wonderful story with a superb plot and a captivating storyline. Added to that were her endearing, fully developed, and somewhat quirky characters- the combination of these pulled me into the story and kept me wrapped up in all the developments. I was so completely emotionally invested in every detail. I couldn’t put it down, as I really had to know how things would play out- so I ended up reading it all in one sitting. Web and Lily Rose are such fantastic characters, but it’s little Julianne who really stole the show! Ms. Berry manages to instil bucketloads of charm and emotion into her stories and characters- which gives her books a real heart & soul. I really recommend this book- you’ll be bound to love it just as much as I have! I can’t wait to get my hands on her next book!

THE SHAPE OF TRUST is the 5th book in the “Stand By Me Series” yet it is 100% a stand-alone. It is always fun to see the cameo appearances made by characters from previous stories, so I always recommend reading an entire series for that reason.
Similar to the other stories in the series, THE SHAPE OF TRUST focuses on our M/m as they navigate new situations in life. The characters are well developed and I was immediately invested in each of them. The story has a very clear path from beginning to end and the story-line holds true through the entire telling. There are children as secondary characters that I would like to read about in the future. This would be a fun group to watch grow and morph as the years progress.
“Dog Eared Books” is a fictional bookstore in the story and I hope that everyone has an independent bookstore they frequent in their own town. They are an asset to local communities and bring so much joy to families.
Brinda Berry is definitely an author who I enjoy reading and I always look forward to what she is writing. I will continue to follow her for her stories in the future.

THE CONFECTIONER’S TRUTH is the third and final book in the “Confectioner Chronicles” series. As this book picks up where the last left off, it is very important to read this series in order.
The entire series was a well written fantasy that had many twists and turns and battles (internal and external). It has a lot of characters to keep track of, but each is pretty well defined in their role. This is one of those series that has it all… Mystery/suspense, fantasy, magic, adventure and action. The world building in the series continues until the very end. New characters are introduced in this story that bring a totally new feel and we get to see the “conclusion” to ongoing relationships.
I definitely have liked and disliked the same characters more than once and have rolled my eyes several times, but I think that is what makes a story interesting. It pulled emotion instead of apathy.
This is a series I would recommend to anyone who enjoys a good fantasy series. It was cool to watch the characters grow along with the story lines.

Degrees of Power, by Via Mari, is the fourth & final book in the Prestian Series. This emotional story has carried through four separate books and coming to that final chapters has been a journey of epic proportions. Katarina and Chase have gone through so much, the ride has been full of twists, turns, bumps and more. Their relationship has pushed limits, yet exceeded expectations in other ways. However, not everything that burns brightly can hold on forever. Following them throughout this series and seeing how their story ends was an amazing journey that could not be missed. Via Mari is a talented author and has showcased this well within the Prestian series.

Brinda Berry’s The Shape of Trust is the fifth book in the Stand By Me series. This new adult/college romance was touching, unique, and rife with pieces of drama filled obstacles that need to be overcome. Webb’s character has demons in his past that he has worked to rise above, but yet still allows that to have some type of impact on the decisions he makes now. He comes across as a charismatic and dependable individual, but yet afraid at the same time. Enter Lily. She’s just an amazing character. Of course, she has her own unique challenges in her life, but she works to make sure they don’t define her and attempts to arise above. These two are certainly the opposite of one another, but yet the ultimate mate to one another. Reading these characters’ stories and wondering if they’ll work to gain what they desire and need within their lives was entertaining, emotional and truly well written.

This story was cute and a little naughty. Jake is a jerk but a truthful jerk. He isn’t out here leading women on. He is just real and maybe too honest. His dislike for germ infested little people is accurate and understandable. Lol! I thought Sam was a little unbelievable as a character. No one does what she did and confidently might I add. Over all the book had me laughing and it turned out to be really sweet. Jake learned a lot and it brought him closer to his family. The story was perfectly balanced with laughter, love, naughty moments and family. You felt the lightness with which the author wanted the story portrayed.

The Memory of Us, by Lisa Sorbe, is a new adult/college romance. This is not just a story that touches on the past, but so much more. The author added layers upon layers of depth within this novel. Elena’s character is multi-faceted, coming across as fiercely independent and strong, yet fractures are evident. She has accomplished much in her life in a small space of time, but the question ultimately becomes is it what she wants or does she need to find something new. Then there is Weston – holy smokes, that is one attractive male – he just melts the words off the pages. When these two characters are in the same room, you can feel the love – yet, is that friends or is it more and is it something that can survive? Lisa Sorbe has created a beautiful story that is emotionally touching.

Note to self: Pay attention to book length. I was not prepared for this book to end so quickly! Like other Kimberly Packard books I have read, I didn’t want to put down The Crazy Yates, and read it in one setting. I highly recommend it and all her books. She writes in a way that you feel like you know the character. She is very descriptive and the characters are genuine and realistic. This is a short story about the Yates family, specifically Callie, the oldest daughter. She is left to look after her family when her father develops such bad anxiety and agoraphobia he cannot leave the house, and her mother cannot handle it and bails. Leaving Callie to raise and take care of her father, and younger brother and sisters. It seems like bad luck piled on bad. Will Callie get a Christmas miracle this year?

The Crazy Yates by Kimberly Packard is a Christmas novella that broke my heart a little bit while reading. I felt so bad got Callie at first, when it rains it pours especially with the bad and that is the case for Callie and her family.
Helping raise her younger siblings and being the sole financial support has caused her to grow up way too soon. As the oldest she felt like it was duty, which I understand since I had to do the same thing.
One fateful trip to Amarillo changed so much for Callie and her family for the better.
This is definitely a feel good Christmas story. But I would love to see more of the Yates family.

This is my favorite book in this series yet. I read a lot about single moms but its great to read about strong single dads. Webb finally has his life together until his five year old daughter he never knew about turns his life upside down. Then he meets Lily. Not only instant attraction but she could be the one to help turn his life right side up again. I loved these two, their chemistry is off the charts. Will they be able to resist each other? I highly recommend reading their story!

The Shape of Trust (a Stand By Me novel Book 5) By: Brinda Berry 5 out of 5 stars
The story The Shape of Trust (a Stand By Me novel Book 5) by Brinda Berry is a new adult/romance book. I absolutely loved reading this story. It had me hooked from the very beginning. It is a wonderful romance book that I couldn’t get enough of. I loved reading about the characters of Webb Walters and Lily Rose. Webb is a man that may have had a wild side in the past however is now walking a different path. He has just learned that he has a daughter he knew nothing about. She needs him. Lily is a woman who is wonderful communicating with those she meets. She is caring and compassionate. She is someone who helps others. Just the sort of person who offers to help Webb out in caring for his daughter. These two have an attraction to each other. There is a desire/energy and chemistry between them. Will they try to keep their relationship professional/businesslike or will they give into their emotions/feelings for each other? Will they find their happiness with each other? Read this book to find out. Both Lily and Webb are characters that I grew to care about with each chapter that I read. You want them to be happy. The story has moments that warmed my heart and made me smile. There is flirting/bantering and some steamy scenes that make the temperature in the room rise. This is a story that flows smoothly and had me glued to the pages until I was finished. I would definitely recommend reading it.

This book was a very short read but full of emotion. I enjoyed reading this story, I wish it would have been longer. Callie is a young but strong woman trying to take care of her family, but feeling like she’s failing. Although there are some struggles having teenagers and an agoraphobic father in the house, there is also a very strong family bond. Will the Yates be able to overcome their struggles? Will Callie make the right decision and tell her family? To find these things out you must read this emotional story. I recommend this book.

Santa’s Little Helper is a fun, short holiday read by Shaan Ranae. This is the first book I have read by this author, however it definitely won’t be the last. I truly enjoyed the witty dialogue and the plot was intriguing it held my attention from beginning to end. There were some very steamy love scenes and a happy ending. This is one of the better Christmas stories that I’ve read this year. I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a short fun read.

The Progeny Assassin: A Tarnished Lands Story (Forgotten Woods Book 2) P.A Wikoff 4 out of 5 stars
The Progeny Assassin is the second book of PA Wikoff’s Forgotten Woods series. While I don’t necessarily think you need to read the first book in the series to follow along with this book’s storyline, I enjoyed having read the first book prior. The Progeny Assassin is one of those books that transports you to another time and place until the story is over. The description in PA Wikoff’s writing is impressive, it’s dark and captivating all at once. The characters in this book are as unique and exciting as is the twisting storyline! I’ve always considered myself to be someone that wasn’t a fan of fantasy type reads but as of late I’ve really been exploring the genre more. This book and really the Forgotten Woods series has truly captured my attention. I look forward to reading more from PA Wikoff.

What a fun read, ‘Theo-Dog’ Legend was so much fun to read, he was such a surprise to read as his first impression wasn’t a good one, but that’s what made the story so good and honest. He needs the TV show to show everyone how he can behave with some good treats like a good boy should. Hadley Holiday is Americas sweetheart and with the help of her side kick Matilda she will be able to show the world you can teach an old dog new tricks and giving us a great story along the way. So long as the treats keep coming so will the good behaviour wont it? Buy the novel and find out, you won’t be disappointed Jamie Schlosser is a great author who brings us story’s that make you smile as well as blush.

While on a photo shoot, the model is late and then when she does show up, she acts like she is too good to be there. What else is there to do but have Haylee take her place. That is when Josh sees her, he is the owner of the agency, the only difference is that he is based in New York. The attraction between the two of them is instantaneous. When Josh asks Haylee to leave her current job and move to New York to be his assistant, she is shocked. She has nothing holding her to LA, her parents are both deceased, so what does she have to lose? When she approaches Josh and shows interest in him, he takes a step back and has it explained to her that he has very different ideas and expectations when it comes to relationships and sex. With her now living in New York and working as his assistant, they both agree to keep their relationship under wraps, not wanting people talking behind their backs. Josh was left with a sour taste in relationships, his ex wife ruined him by cheating and lying. With the amount of time that Josh and Haylee spend together working, traveling and being romantically involved, of course feelings and love are bound to come into place.

When the chance finally comes for them to be together, NOTHING is going to stop him from making it happen. Brian and Sasha together is perfection in my eyes.

They have rules in place to keep them from getting too comfortable with each other. They both agreed that love is not in the cards for either one of them. So to have sex and strictly sex, it is a win win for them both. Is it possible for them to truly keep it only sex or will feelings and emotions get in the way? Or have the feelings been there from the very beginning??? I promise you will not be disappointed with their book.
Bet Me Something- Book Three Colby Singer is a playboy manwhore. Or is he???? He is Josh’s younger brother and he lives out in LA, running his own production company.

Once back in LA, they start to get back into their routines until there is an accident and Kenzie is seriously hurt. That is the day that Colby realizes that he needs her in his life. Will their families be able accept them as a couple or will they tear them apart? Can a relationship start out at friendship and then grow and turn into pure true love? Take this journey with Colby and Kenzie, you will not be sorry!! I absolutely loved the dynamics of this couple. I knew that from reading bits and pieces about them in the other 2 books, when they finally came together, it was going to be great!!! I can not wait to see what else is in store for this gang and their friends…..
Santa’s Little Helper by Shaan Ranae was a quick, cute read for me.
When a department store Santa ends up dying, Jake must take matters Into his own hands. Jake is the worst choice for a Santa because he really doesn’t like children. He does however become quite fond of one of Santa’s helpers. Sam yells at the fake Santa not realizing he is her boss. When she finds out, she expects to be fired but Jake can’t seem to do that. He has other visions of her. Instead he gets her to help him find the perfect Santa for his store. All of this is happening while Jake is planning to expand with the help of Marcum & Heath.
What will happen to the future of Laurel Department Store? What will happen to Jake and Sam? Will she make it home to see nana and will her feelings change towards Jake during the holiday season. I thought this book was well written and a sweet read.

Paladins Hell by Manda Mellett is the first book in the Satan’s Devil Mc Colorado Chapter. This book is a spin-off of her previous series. Everything about this book for me was all about the emotions. I was sucked in from the start and could not let go of these characters. They fully took me on their journey from the moment I read the blurb. I knew that I wanted them to work and that I wanted them to find a way. This author is one I am growing to love with every book I read. I cannot recommend this author enough!

I give The Progeny Assassin: A Tarnished Lands Story (Forgotten Woods Book 2) by P.A. Wikoff, 4 stars.
Lara is so tired of her master. Nothing she ever does is good enough. Sometimes it feels like she just can’t take it any more. But her and her master are the only feathered folks left. Then one day, her master heads out to clean up one of Lara’s “messes”. This is unprecedented. Master never leaves the house. To make matters worse, she doesn’t come back. Lara finally decides to go out and look for her. She is smart and old enough, she can take care of herself. Leaving with only a weapon she created herself, the things her master has taught her, and her wild imagination, she sets out on a journey unlike one she could ever have imagined.
This is a great young adult fantasy book. Although not human, Lara resonates with most teens. They think they are ready for it all, but they really aren’t. Not that they will admit it. The story itself is great. The things met along the way, the things she learns, will enrich her knowledge. And the detail you come to expect in high fantasy is here in spades.
I highly recommend this book. Reading book one is not necessary to understand this one, but I do think it should be read because it is so good.

The Something Series by Audrey Bondurant is a great set of stories that will pull you in from page one and keep you enthralled throughout each book. Each book focuses on two characters, and how the attraction and chemistry builds and grows throughout the pages. The feelings between each couple are undeniable and I found myself falling for each of them while reading. The characters all were created equally and deeply connected throughout each book, so I highly recommend reading all the books in order from this fantastic series. If you are looking for a great series by an author that will keep you enthralled from book to book than this is a series you need to add to your TBR pile. I can’t wait for Bondurant to bring even more books to her devoted readers.

Surviving the Storm by Virginia Wine is the second book in her Surviving Series and it just keeps getting better and better. Following the story of Alexander Kincaid Storm III and Madison Perry and it easily got me lost in the pages. Full of mystery and suspense this contemporary romance will keep you on your toes from beginning to end. From the beginning of their love story, the chemistry is off the charts and the passion between them could short circuit your readers. Madison is the classic unavailable gal, but Alexander’s feelings for her are too strong to deny. The pull between them in undeniable, and yet the future between these two could be uncertain. Can something that burns so hot and fast be something that lasts forever? Wine is a newer to me author, having only found her with this series but I am so glad I picked this one up. The characters are full of emotions, there was steam and mystery and just enough heartbreak to make for a great book. If you are looking for a great series by an author that will pull you in from the beginning and never let go. I can’t wait to see where this series goes in the future. This is a definite must for anyone looking for great steamy romance and mysterious love stories.

The Confectioner’s Truth (The Confectioner Chronicles #3) by Claire Luana was an epic conclusion to a equally epic series.
The final book in The Confectioner Chronicles, we are taking to the secrets that Wren hides, and ones we finally get to learn the full truth about. Picking up almost where the last book leaves off, there is no stopping this epic fantasy. As the danger lurks closer, the suspense thickened, I was on the edge of my seat for most, I at times even forgot to breathe! This book, was damn near perfect, and as much as I didn’t want to leave this world, or these characters, all things must come to a end. I have to say, as this being one of my favorite series of 2018, I’m feeling pretty satisfied with the ending.
There is nothing else to say, outside of the wonderful detail and the top notch writing that is consistent throughout the series. This is a series to all, and I highly recommend you get your hands on it. Please take my golden stamp of approval, that you will get lost in this beautiful, wonderful world of magic, betrayal, love and above all, friendship.

I have read several of Lisa Sorbe’s novels this year and really have discovered that she is one that I can never go wrong one-clicking. I must say this little gem though, The Memory of Us, is my favorite! I adored this sweet and addicting second chance read. I was captivated from the very first page until the last and found myself reading it in one fell swoop. I enjoyed multiple emotions while doing so too.
The Memory of Us is the story of Elena Everhart and Weston Brooks. As children they were something special and you would have thought they were destined for forever. However, life had different plans. Unfortunate circumstances have thrown them back into each other’s lives again though. What will life and fate have in store now???

Surviving Jordan (Surviving Series Book 3) By: Virginia Wine 5 out of 5 stars
The story Surviving Jordan (Surviving Series Book 3) by Virginia Wine is a romantic suspense book. This is a series that I have loved since reading the first story. There are moments in the book when I was turning pages to find out what would happen next and others when I could feel the passion that ignites. I loved reading about the characters of Benjamin Thomas Stone and Jordan Mitchell. These two have an attraction to each other. Benjamin has had to keep himself from crossing a line with her. He has kept himself distant. He has deep emotions for her. Are his feelings for a woman who will always be off-limits, forbidden? Read this book to find out what the future has in store for both Benjamin and Jordan. This is a story that flows smoothly and had me hooked from the very beginning. I didn’t want to put it down until I had read the final page. I love that the characters from the first two books are brought forward into this one. Benjamin and Jordan are characters that I grew to care more and more about with each chapter that I read. I wanted them to find happiness. There are moments that warmed my heart and made me smile. Steamy scenes that will make the temperature in the room rise are included in this story. This is definitely a book and series I would highly recommend reading.
