Michael’s Heart by Lori Thomas Harrington – Review by Jessica Leombruno

Michael's HeartMichael’s Heart by Lori Thomas Harrington
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Emotional Mess is what I was after reading this book. Michael’s Heart by Lori Thomas Harrington was a little different than my normal romances but the great way to see how music impacts some peoples life. But I was stuck to my kindle what to know what was going to happen to Colbie. The mother/daughter relationship between Colbie and Lyric was an amazing part of the story; reminds me too much of my own relationship with my mother. This quote “It’s not what you look at, it’s what you see” is something that will stay with me. Highly recommend this story to every woman who loves to read.

Aiko (The Heartstrings Series Book 1) by Brooke May – Review by Jessica Leombruno

AikoAiko by Brooke May
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Aiko by Brooke May was a sweet sassy funny take on a second chance Cupid. Aiko is looking to redeem herself for being a bad cupid. Her next assignment is going to be a good one. Alejandro has the looks but not a romantic bone in his body; he is in need of some help.

Brooke writing just pulls you in and fills your heart with goodness. Perfect name for this series “Heartstrings” because it pulls right on them. Each chapter has a Cupid’s Law and they are hilarious. If you’re looking for a sweet romance for your next read then this is the book for you.

Bowled: Facing the Yorker of Love (To Love a Sportsman Book 1) by Pamela Q. Fernandes – Review by Jessica Leombruno

Bowled (To Love a Sportsman Book 1)Bowled by Pamela Q. Fernandes
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Bowled by Pamela Q. Fernandes was my first book by this author and I’m looking forward to reading more by this author. This was a wonderfully written story of humor and missteps with sassy attitude thrown in.

We all know that everything you put on Twitter can and will be used against you at some point. Rose found that out when she posted “Did Mathew Anderson really need another home in NYC” Never did Rose think that would lead to a trip to NYC to meet Mathew.

I like anything to do British culture so I was interested in learning little about cricket; I think I will stick to American Baseball (LOL). I highly recommended this story to anyone looking for an enjoyable sports romance.

RETURN (Rewind Book 2) by Rowan Shaw – Review by Jessica Leombruno

Return (Rewind #2)Return by Rowan Shaw
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Return by Rowan Shaw is the exact reason why I love reading M/M books. Rowan writing just has this way of pulling you into this world that she has created and not letting you go. She had me hooked with Rewind but Return was something that I couldn’t put down and wanted to read again after I finished; so many yummy scenes. Rowan is becoming one of my favorites for LBGTQ writers. The blurb only tells you part of what this book is about, the other side is something that I have never read before when it has come to M/M romances. I loved that Rowan took a chance with this storyline. LOVE IS FREE!! Looking forward to the next book and seeing where Rowan Shaw is going to take me to next in Paris.

Wayward (Billionaire Bodyguards Book 1) by Via Mari – Review by Jessica Leombruno

Wayward (Billionaire Bodyguards Book 1)Wayward by Via Mari
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Wayward by Via Mari was a great fast-paced story in a world that will have you turning the pages just to know what happens next. Jay is a bodyguard who works for Chase (Prestian Series) to protect Brian Carrington. After meeting Sasha for the first time, she is all Jay can thinking instead of doing his job. Sasha is a Russian ballerina who has ties to the mafia; she also thinks she’s unlovable. Can Jay make her see that he will do anything for her and love her the way she is meant to be? If you haven’t read Via’s other series, that’s okay each series can be read as standalone. But I recommend that you go read them.

A Protector’s Touch by Parker Sinclair – Review by Jessica Leombruno

A Protector's TouchA Protector’s Touch by Parker Sinclair
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A Protector’s Touch is a wonderful empowering story of finding strength and believing that not every man is an abuser. This was my first book by Parker Sinclair and would love to read more. This book might not be liked by everyone to do the nature of the topic but I find it moving and April’s courage inspiring.

April and Shan have always looked and wanted to talk to one another but because of April’s ex, they never did. With her relationship over, Shan picked the right moment to play knight in shining armor and April’s life changed for the better. With Shan and her best friend Nia by her side, she has the strength to finally face and do something about her abuser. There is instant chemistry between Shan and April and I liked the slow burn feel between the two.

I would love to see April’s best friend get a book next.

Tracking Numbers (Lost Boys MC Book 1) by Janice Whiteaker – Review by Jessica Leombruno

Tracking NumbersTracking Numbers by Janice M. Whiteaker
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Tracking Numbers is the first book in the Lost Boys MC and my first book by Janice M Whiteaker. I love MC romances and this fast-paced page-turner was no expectation. The tougher they are the harder they love; Evan “Tracker” was no different. Growing up on the street made him someone who knows how to track people down and protect them. Kerri Wallace wants nothing to do with her father’s MC, but when Tracker shows up to protect her from an enemy of her father’s, she not going to make his job easy. These two have a connection that sparked from the beginning and had me loving every page. I can’t wait for more books in this series.

Beachcomber Enemy: a Romantic Thriller (Beachcomber Investigations Book 10) by Stephanie Queen – Review by Jessica Leombruno

Beachcomber EnemyBeachcomber Enemy by Stephanie Queen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Beachcomber Enemy is fast-paced romantic suspense that starts with a bang and ends with you wanting more. We have been following Dane Blaise and Shana George for 10 books now and there is never a dull moment with these two. You can never keep a secret hidden for too long because it will come back to bite you, Shana. It’s good to see past characters make cameos in books every now and again. Stephanie, another good book; can’t wait to see what’s going to happen next with Dane and Shana.

BECKONED, Part 6: Adrift in New Zealand by Aviva Vaughn – Review by Jessica Leombruno

BECKONED, Part 6: Adrift in New ZealandBECKONED, Part 6: Adrift in New Zealand by Aviva Vaughn
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I have been a fan of this series since the first book, but Adrift in New Zealand might just be the best book in the series. Aviva Vaughn has done such an amazing job with this series; I really don’t want to see it end.

We last left with Soren happy in Costa Rica with Elena and finally feeling like he found his purpose. But what happens when life takes a turn and things change again for Soren. I liked Elena but I didn’t see her as his HEA. Halfway through I got a little worried for Soren; I have been heartbroken for him so many times I almost gave up hope on him finding that one true love.

Aviva, you have made this fangirl very happy with how this series has turned out. This is something I have wanted to happen since part 4. I will admit that screamed when he smelled roses and someone from the past showed up (HAPPY DANCE).

I recommended this series to everyone not only looking for romance – which is wonderful but for an adventure as well.

Impact (Twisted Hearts Love Story #4) by Autumn Sand – Review by Jessica Leombruno

Impact (A Twisted Hearts Love Story book 4)Impact by Autumn Sand
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Impact is only my second book by Autumn Sand and I will admit it’s been a while since I have read a book by her. Impact reminded me of why I like this author. This dark second chance romance with the roller-coaster of emotions was addicting. The edgy twist and turns took me down the dark rabbit hole and I couldn’t leave until I finish this book. The flashbacks helped me understand more of what Manny has been through and what his relationship with Zoe was like.

If you love a good anti-hero bad boy with a twisted past then you need to read Impact. Plus you have to not mind the mature content and some steamy scenes.

Looking forward to the next series Autumn writes.
