Handle With Care (Chase Care Book 1)Handle With Care by R.L. Dunn
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This story kind of took me by surprise as to just how much I enjoyed it. Now listen I mean that in all the best ways because I read a lot of books and I’m always on the lookout for ones that will stick with me and take me by surprise. This author did that and so much more in my opinion. The characters and storyline are so realistic I just sank right into their world and I was so sad to say see you later to these great characters. From start to finish I was completely hooked and the outside world meant nothing to me! The storyline will have you turning the pages as fast as possible to see what will happen! Five big stars and highly recommended! I can’t wait to read more!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Adrik and Annika’s story might just be in my top three favorite reads for 2022. I did read this as a stand-alone without any problems but you can tell other characters have a story to be read so I’ll definitely be going back to read the rest of the series. There’s so many amazing things about this story, the characters pull you so completely into their world it’s hard to leave when the end comes. Once I started this book I simply couldn’t put it down. I read it in one night and wished I could have slowed it down but I was just way to invested. I’ll definitely be rereading this one though. Well written with characters you’ll fall for. Five huge stars and highly recommended!

This author definitely had me hooked from start to finish. I’m gladly giving this book five stars and can’t wait for more from this author. Highly recommended!

While this is book five it can easily be read as a stand-alone without any confusion but I do recommend the others in the series also.

So I’m a huge fan of twists or retellings of different stories and on of my favorites is different takes on Cinderella so I was definitely excited for this one.

Hard Lover (Houston After Dark #2)Hard Lover by Deborah Garland
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

There’s just something about the forbidden isn’t there. One of my favorite story types is the best friend’s sister and this author nailed it. I’m a fan of stories with steam but it also needs a storyline that has depth and I am happy to say this author does that well. Noah and Callie will forever have a piece of my heart. They had me so completely drawn in that I simply couldn’t put this book down. Their story is well written and the characters just click so well. I easily read it as a standalone which I appreciate. I’d give this book fives stars all the way and highly recommend it.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book is in no way for the faint of heart. This author takes hard to deal with situations and writes them well this book isn’t for everyone but I for one simply couldn’t put it down. Two imperfect people with a heck of a story to tell.from page one I knew I’d be getting very little sleep and I was right. Once I started I found it so hard to put it down when the real world came calling. There’s definitely times this author had me in tears and I loved every minute of it. The story will draw you so completely in and you’ll have a hard time when the end comes. Five stars and highly recommended all the way.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

You want a book that hits you in all the right places of the heart then one click this one. From the first chapter I knew I was in for a great read. Evan and Callie are totally going to steal every bit of your heart trust me and you’ll give it over willingly. The absolute only downside to this story was that it had to end but I’d read it over and over again easily. The characters are complex and relatable, issues that real people have to deal with on a daily basis are discussed and while not always easy the author does a wonderful job at it. I’d give more stars if possible but just know it’s even bit as amazing as the five stars I’m giving it. Highly recommended!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This story brought me to my knees in all the most amazing ways. I’m just going to start off by saying five stars all the way. Have you ever sat down with a book that captures all of your heart? Because that’s exactly what TJ and Katrina did to me. Each character was so very easy to connect with and you just couldn’t help but love them and their story. The author is amazing with detailed information and a story that keeps you so drawn in you tend to forget the outside world. That was completely fine by me. I’ll definitely be missing these characters and will have to reread their story eventually again. Again five stars well deserved!

Ok so I found this book and was in the mind set of branching out in my comfort zone of what I like to read. So I went in completely blind on this one all I knew was it was a Sci-fi Romance, and not my normal reading pleasure. But boy am I incredibly glad I took this leap of faith because this book had me completely captured from start to finish. Mia is a character that I will remember for a long time. Each character was so easy to connect with, them simply pull you into their world and you don’t want to leave. I’m so happy I found this author and can’t wait for more.

LeviLevi by Edith Mackenzie
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a great clean and easy romance, with a bit of suspense added in. Everyone in this story made it an exciting read for sure. It’s on the shorter side and while that didn’t hinder the storyline in any way I just find myself wanting more time with Levi and Bella simply because I liked their story. I’m definitely excited to read more about this family. It’s got everything you need in a romantic suspense type story and characters that are so easy to connect with. Well written and paced nicely even with it being shorter it’s in no way rushed or lacking anything. Four big stars and highly recommended. Excited to read more!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I think this is a wonderful story for any child to read I read it with my niece who’s 8 years old and not adopted but she still learned the lesson being presented with the story. And I think it’s absolutely wonderful for those who are adopting to have something to show them that what they feel is totally fine. It’s short sweet and to the point and a very easy read for children. I highly recommend it for the age group intended and for adopted and non adopted children. Four big stars and highly recommended!

You know that little feeling you get when you read the first few pages and just know you’re about to read an amazing story? That’s exactly what happened when I opened this one up. The characters instantly had me hooked. And this author had my emotions all over the place. Oh how I fell in love with Ellawyn her character spoke to me so much and I seriously wish we could read books for the first time more than once but I’ll make due adding it to my read again list. It’s a well written storyline and had everything I was looking for in a romantic suspense story. I can’t wait to see where this author takes readers next. I’d give this more stars if possible, but it’s definitely earned a five star rating!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I’m a huge fan of a story that can be short but doesn’t make you notice that it is. While it’s a shorter read it wasn’t hindered in anyway. I truly felt an easy connection to the characters and the overall storyline and that’s not always easy but this author did it very well. From page one I couldn’t put it down and finished it rather quickly and enjoyed all of it. There’s just something about these two characters that spoke a little deeper to me and I’ll remember them for a while. If you’re looking for an amazing shorter read I highly recommend this story. Four big stars!

Every single time I see a new book from this author I think to myself it couldn’t get any better and this author proves me wrong every time. The things that play out in her head is fantastic and I for one am grateful she writes us stories. Once again her characters are so easy to connect with and root for. They each have a story to tell and I loved every minute of it. I definitely stay up way too late if I start one of this authors book and this one made me do it again and it was worth the sleepless night. If I could give more than five stars I would but just know it’s worth way more. Highly recommended! This book and this author in general!

They each brought this story to life in different ways and them together is just an all around good time. These can be read in any order but I honestly feel like in the written order is best for a better overall storyline experience. The characters are complex and relatable, they have also become some of my top favorites. This book and this author are 5 stars all the way and highly recommended!
