One Hot Texas Summer (Prentice Brothers of Sweet Ridge Book 1) by Nicole Flockton – Review by Jessica Leombruno

One Hot Texas Summer (Prentice Brothers of Sweet Ridge, #1)One Hot Texas Summer by Nicole Flockton
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Some old fashioned gestures will never go out of style in this modern world. One Hot Texas Summer was a sweet love story that some men need to read to get some pointers. Tate Prentice and Kelly Turner have some serious chemistry that you can feel the tingles while reading their story.

This was my first book by Nicole Flockton and I fell in love with this family of friends. I had the feeling I was missing something in the first chapter but only because I wanted to know more about Charlotte and Macy (Sweet Texas Secrets Series). I can’t wait for more of the Prentice brothers.

REBECCA STEELE FINDING A DREAM (REBECCA STEELE SERIES BOOK 2) by JOANNE PATTERSON – Review by Jessica Leombruno

Rebecca Steele Finding the Dream (Rebecca Steele Series #2)Rebecca Steele Finding the Dream by Joanne Patterson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Rebecca Steele Finding the Dream by Joanne Patterson is the second book in the Rebecca Steele series and my first book by this author. I am a sucker for a book that takes place in any part of my home state. That might have drawn me to the book but Joanne’s writing and great characters are what had me flipping the pages.

Great storyline, really like the little twist. As this is standalone, I can’t wait to go back and read the first book just to get to know Rebecca Steele a little better. Can’t wait to see what Rebecca’s next adventure going to be.

The Matchmaker and The Marine: A Second Chance Small-Town Romance by Lucinda Race – Review by Jessica Leombruno

The Matchmaker and The Marine: A Second Chance Small-Town RomanceThe Matchmaker and The Marine: A Second Chance Small-Town Romance by Lucinda Race
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Matchmaker and the Marine by Lucinda Race was a great example of why I love second chance romances. As my first book by this author, Melinda and Adam’s story was heartwarming and full of emotions that I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough. Both of these characters had an uphill battle to fight through and it was great to see how the right person can help fight those battles. I can’t wait to read more books from this small town and check out other books by this author.

New Jerk in Town: An Enemies-to-Lovers Romantic Comedy (Carolina Kisses Book 2) by Sylvie Stewart – Review by Jessica Leombruno

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

New Jerk in Town is only my second read by Sylvie Stewart and I’m loving her writing style. I have found myself being sucked by how the likable characters and funny dialogue.

Milo and Jill meet when they were teens and their timing wasn’t right. Years later, Jill returned to the same beach town and runs into Milo, he isn’t happy to see her. But the real question is what happens when they were teens?

This story jumps from the past to the present in dual POVs. Milo is a grumpy man who has a good heart and Jill has so much sass it almost too hard to handle. I can’t wait to see who’s up next in Carolina Kisses series.

Dares & Dice (Spicetopia #5) by Phoebe Alexander – Review by Jessica Leombruno

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

Dares & Dice is book 5 in the Spicetopia series by Phoebe Alexander and let me say this might be my favorite. I think I say that about every book in this series. We all think Vegas is the place to have your bachelor/bachelorette party’s at, but if Spicetopia was a real place it would have Vegas beat.

Makenna and Ty had me laughing-out-loud and loving the bantering between them But nothing was better than the naughty scavenger hunt, I mean who wouldn’t want to do that.

If you love a little wild and crazy mixed with some serious sexiness then you need to read this book/series.

Forgotten Promise Book two: The Forgotten Trilogy by Virginia Wine – Review by Jessica Leombruno

Forgotten Promise (Forgotten #2)Forgotten Promise by Virginia Wine
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Forgotten Promise (Forgotten #2) by Virginia Wine was a romantic suspense that will keep you on your toes.

Nathan and Bryer think they finally can start finding they’re happily ever after. But Cash is still lurking around finding a way to be 2 steps ahead of them. Will Nathan and Bryer ever truly be done with Cash or will Cash find a way to destroy their relationship?

I’m not a huge suspense romance fan but Virginia’s writing as me wanting more. I can’t wait to see what will happen next with this couple.

Sunshine Kisses (A Kisses Novella) by Elaine Marie – Review by Jessica Leombruno

Sunshine KissesSunshine Kisses by Elaine Marie
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Sunshine Kisses by Elaine Marie, I knew just by reading the blurb that I was in for an emotional read.

Before leaving for her best friend’s wedding, Crystal got two shocks, one being some very upsetting health news and then seeing her friend/neighbor Spencer in a new light. So with this news, she is going to live life to the fullest on this vacation/wedding in Florida. Is Crystal ready to take her relationship with Spencer to another level and will she tell her friends the other news?

I recommend everyone giving this author and her writing a chance. I can’t wait to read more books in this series.

Southern Promises: The Complete Series (A Contemporary Romance Standalone Box Set) by K.G. Fletcher – Review by Jessica Leombruno

Southern Promises: The Complete Series (A Contemporary Romance Standalone Box Set)Southern Promises: The Complete Series by K.G. Fletcher
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Southern Promises series got me hooked on K.G. Fletcher’s writing. If you’re looking for a series to get lost in while sitting on a back porch drinking Iced Tea, then this is it!

Georgia Clay – Katie and Clay’s story was sexy funny and swoon-worthy. How many of us all wish we could go to our high school reunion and just hit it off with our crush 10 years later? Well, that is how Katie and Clay’s romance started. Katie and Clay both had very demanding jobs but found a way to make long-distance relationship work, didn’t hurt that they were only a 4-hour car ride away.

Georgia on My Mind – Good southern boy who just wants to take care of his woman. Gia and Hart are two broken people who find each other just at the right time and boy do the sparks fly. Hart and Gia might be a little sexier then Clay and Katie.

Georgia Pine – Tim and Jessica’s story; he is the perfect gentleman for this Southern Belle. From their first meeting in the pantry, Tim was meant to loved and take care of these five girls. The way Tim cherished Jessica and loved her adorable four girls melted my heart.

Rise (The Larussio Legacy Book 2) by Via Mari – Review by Jessica Leombruno

Rise (The Larussio Legacy, #2)Rise by Via Mari
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Rise the second book in The Larussio Legacy by Via Mari. This mafia suspense romance will melt your kindle. Gio and Serena have so much passion, chemistry and their love for one another is heartwarming. Things started with a bang in this book and didn’t stop. You ever knew what was going to happen next. Can their love survive family enemies and all the threats?

This series must be read in order because you don’t want to miss any of the action. I have said this before in my other reviews for Via Mari’s books – I recommend everything Via writes. Pleases let Jay be next to have his book.

Romance in Rehoboth Boxed Set (Books 4-6): A Small Town Romantic Comedy Series by K.L. Montgomery – Review by Jessica Leombruno

Romance in Rehoboth Boxed Set (Books 4-6): A Small Town Romantic Comedy SeriesRomance in Rehoboth Boxed Set (Books 4-6): A Small Town Romantic Comedy Series by KL Montgomery
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Romance in Rehoboth Boxed Set (Books 4-6) by K.L. Montgomery, includes Badge Bunny, Wedding War, and Stage Mom. Each of these stories can be read as a standalone but there are interconnected characters.

Badge Bunny (book 4) – cop meets ER doc and boy do they bump heads.
Wedding War (book 5) – two rival families trying to save wedding businesses – fall in love?
Stage Mom (book 6) – a single mom with a daughter meets a nice guy.

These books will have you giggling over the crazy shenanigans but you are guaranteed a Happily-Ever-After. I might have to say these three are Rom-Coms are just what every romance reader needs to read.
