Must Be Crazy (Darling Cove Book 3) by Deborah Garland – Review by Jessica Leombruno

Must Be CrazyMust Be Crazy by Deborah Garland
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Must Be Crazy is the third book in the Darling Cove series by Deborah Garland, this can be read as a standalone but recommend you read the first two books. I have been waiting for Skye’s book since Must Love Fashion; there was just something about her character that I connected with. But it was Must Have Faith that had me really wanting Edward and Skye together. They had this instant connection with one another. So when I started Must Be Crazy, I knew I wasn’t going to be able to put this book down. Besides the great love story of Edward and Skye, there was DRAMA from someone’s ex.

I always have a full heart and tears in my eye when I read about men or women taking on a stepchild like they are their own. It was great catching up with the rest of this family, at one point they were all living under one roof – sorry that is just too many people in one house. But when Greg, Gwen, and Skye are all together you know there will be laughing. This book had everything you will love – it was sweet, funny, emotional and sexy.

Hard as Steel: Book four (Hard as Steel: Book four by Virginia Wine
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Hard as Steel is the fourth book in the Surviving Series by Virginia Wine; this romance suspense/mystery will keep you glued to your reading device. This was my first book by this author and I will tell you that you need to read these books in order. I might have been lost in the beginning but. Virginia’s writing will captivate you with the mystery and suspense that will keep you reading. Steel and Nicole were such great characters, how could you not feel what was going on in this book. I will be adding the first three books to my reading list and looking forward to the next book.

Must Have Faith (Darling Cove Book 2) by Deborah Garland – Review by Jessica Leombruno

Must Have Faith (Darling Cove #2)Must Have Faith by Deborah Garland
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Must Have Faith is the second book in Darling Cove series by Deborah Garland; this was a wonderful emotional second chance romance. You met Greg and Faith in Must Love Fashion but the question running through my mind the whole time was why Faith left Greg. We finally get the answer, plus see the anger and passion that 10 years apart does to these childhood sweethearts. Can Faith and Greg get a second chance at love or will Faith run off to London?

Faith and Greg have so many things to work out but their lust for one another keeps getting in the way of them talking. Nothing was better than the kitchen table scene; I couldn’t stop laughing at how embarrassing that was. But what really touched my heart was the ending; reading the last 25% of this book will have you needing a box of tissues. Deborah the writing was heartbreaking and had me feeling everything that they were going thru.

So looking forward to reading Edward and Skye’s story next.

Must Love Fashion (Darling Cove Book 1) by Deborah Garland – Review by Jessica Leombruno

Must Love Fashion (Darling Cove #1)Must Love Fashion by Deborah Garland
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Must Love Fashion by Deborah Garland. This was a great start to the Darling Cove series. Gwen and Andrew are both at a point of starting over – Gwen with a new PR Executive job and Andrew with moving on after losing his wife to cancer. Like all office romances, there are some bumps in the road and lots of side glances. But after getting to know each other better; that’s when the sparks really started flying. The side topic of cancer made me an emotional wreck. Not in a bad way just made me think of my life and what is going on. I did love getting the insiders look at the fashion world, very interesting. Deborah’s writing flowed at a great pace that it will keep you reading all day/night long. Really looking forward to seeing what happens next in Darling Cove.

BECKONED, Part 5: Adrift in Costa Rica by Aviva Vaughn – Review by Jessica Leombruno

BECKONED, Part 5: Adrift in Costa RicaBECKONED, Part 5: Adrift in Costa Rica by Aviva Vaughn
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Adrift in Costa Rica is the 5th book in the Beckoned series by Aviva Vaughn and I am so glad to have another book in this series. I fell in love with the workaholic Soren in the first 4 books, now I get to fall for the surfer Soren who looks like Thor – YES PLEASE! Like the last 4 books, the writing will have you feeling like you are in Costa Rica right beside Soren and Elena.

A heartbroken Soren has now found himself is a small village in Costa Rica trying to find what is next for him. After a small surfing accident, Soren meets Elena an ex-pro surfer. Soren has decided to extend his stay and take surfing and Spanish lessons. While meeting Elena, Soren has become a lighter version of himself but will Elena’s past put a stop to their romance.

I so need Soren to find his true love; someone that will balance out his workaholic side with his laid-back side. But I have a feeling Elena is not that person if she lets her past back into her life. Aviva again, you have me on the edge of my seat ready for New Zealand.

Give and Take (The Thorne Brothers, #2) by Lee Kilraine – Review by Jessica Leombruno

Give and Take (The Thorne Brothers, #2)Give and Take by Lee Kilraine
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Give and Take is the perfect title for this book by Lee Kilraine. Every person who likes color in their life needs some beige to balance them out and the same can be said for a person who likes too much beige. We all know what happens when you put two people who are like night/day in a small space together; they banter like children and you could cut the sexual tension with a knife. And that was Wyatt Thorne and Rhia Hollis. I really like both of these characters, but the first two times they meet were awesome. I loved how Rhia would add touches to Wyatt’s office just for color. Wyatt’s brothers were always good for some extra comic relief too.
Even behind all the drama you still get the hint of family togetherness and the bond between these brothers. I will defiantly be going back and reading the first book to find out how they learned about the sister and really looking forward to continuing this series – I need more Thorne brothers!

Fisher of Men (The Eastern Shore Swingers #1) by Phoebe Alexander – Review by Jessica Leombruno

Fisher of MenFisher of Men by Phoebe Alexander
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Fisher of Men was my first book by Phoebe Alexander and it was worth of 3.5 stars out of 5. I have a like/dislike relationship with this book, it was the one subject of the book that drew me in but the other subject wasn’t something I normally read about and because of that I didn’t feel a connection with the female lead. The writing was well written but I have to admit some of Leah’s backstory I skipped over and I didn’t care for the scriptures at the beginning every chapter. I did like that Mrs. Alexander took a chance at showing two different people from totally different worlds coming together and building a relationship. You don’t see too many romance books take this big of a risk in its subject matters.

But this book isn’t going to stop me from reading the other books in this series. Like I said, one subject matter caught my eye and I would like to see where Mrs. Alexander takes the other stories within this club.

Summer Fling by Tarrah Anders – Review by Jessica Leombruno

Summer FlingSummer Fling by Tarrah Anders
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

If you have read any of my reviews on Tarrah Anders’ books before then you know how much I love her books/writing. Well, Summer Fling was no different; this was a wonderful story about Royce and Emma. Their love story had me swooning so much, that I wished I had a summer fling in my younger years. But, this story was not only sweet and romantic; it had plenty of cray-cray to go around too. Plus we can’t forget all the Hot Sexiness between Royce and Emma; it’s not a Tarrah Anders book without some steamy sexy time between the sheets.

Everything about this book just flowed, there was never a moment that dragged or felt like it needs something. You will be on the edge of your seat ill the end wanting to know what is going to happen next. The little tease in the epilogue has me hoping for another book just about Jackson.

This hot steamy read will get you through some cold winter nights!

Just Exes by Charity Ferrell – Review by Jessica Leombruno

Just ExesJust Exes by Charity Ferrell
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Just Exes by Charity Ferrell was an emotional second chance enemies-to-lovers book. I had to finish this book before going to bed (1 am) because you have two different events going on at the same time. How could anyone put a book down with all that happening? So yes, I went to sleep with red puffy eyes because I cried like a baby. Charity’s will draw you in after the first chapter and not let go till the very end.

Gage and Lauren’s relationship gave me everything that I love – bantering almost every time they saw each other, the heartbreaking past flashbacks and of course the HOT hate sex; which turned into reunion sex. Plus, I loved seeing Lauren’s brother again and getting updated on that was going on.

P.S. – Kyle needs his own book; I need more Kyle!!

Badge Bunny (Romance in Rehoboth Book 4) by K.L. Montgomery – Review by Jessica Leombruno

Badge Bunny (Romance in Rehoboth Book 4)Badge Bunny by K.L. Montgomery
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Badge Bunny a person who dates A LOT of cops; is the fourth book in the Romance in Rehoboth series by K.L. Montgomery and my first book by this author. I love small town romance because secrets are never secrets for long.

Chris and Brynne don’t like each other much at first or should I say Brynne doesn’t care for Trooper A**Hat at first. When Chris and Brynne stopped bickering and let their feeling move forward, it was an emotional sweet cute story. There is so much to this story other than two people meeting and falling in love.

If the first three books are anything like this enjoyable funny slow burn Rom Com than I need to go back and start this series from the beginning, this group of friends are hilarious.
