Home to the Outback (Welcome to Bunya Junction Book 1) by Nicole Flockton – Review by Katie Matthews

Home to the Outback (Welcome to Bunya Junction, #1)Home to the Outback by Nicole Flockton
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 

I really love this author – her stories are so easy to read and really enjoyable. I really liked Sindy and Ryan, they were both really lovely characters and I loved reading about them. The authors way with her characters makes them really likeable and relatable and I found that to be the same in this book as previous ones. I felt the heartbreak of the characters and I was definitely rooting for the two of them the whole way through. They seemed to have a genuine connection which felt real and not forced!
I would definitely recommend this book and as always, I look forward to more from this author again in the future.

Forever Valentine: A Sequel to Professor Valentine (Kirk University Series, Book 6) by Diana Vale – Review by Katie Matthews

Forever Valentine (Kirk University, #6)Forever Valentine by Diana Vale
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 

I was so excited to start this book and see how Cassie and Diego’s relationship was going. I really felt like the author kept this relationship real, she showed the ups and downs and it did feel very realistic in parts. The story was only short but it was great to catch up with the characters again. I really enjoyed the story and would definitely recommend it however the books should be read in order to fully understand the characters relationship.

Romancing the Tropics (A Tropical Cocktail Romance Boxset) by L.M. Mountford – Review by Katie Matthews

Romancing the Tropics : A Holiday Romance Boxset (A Tropical Cocktail Romance)Romancing the Tropics : A Holiday Romance Boxset by L.M. Mountford
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 

Oh, this author – he definitely knows how to get the pulse racing in his sexy short reads! I absolutely love reading his books! They might only be short reads but my gosh he doesn’t miss anything.

Tequila Sunset may be a slight taboo story but I still liked it – got to be honest he was a very attractive and sexy older guy and the passion between them was certainly off the charts! He definitely brought Cass out of herself that’s for sure!! I loved the setting for this story too! Sounded relaxing and idyllic!

Beneath the Sheets was a second chance romance read and I really enjoyed this one too. This story had more of a build-up than the first one so I enjoyed getting to know the characters and seeing their relationship develop. I loved Alex and Sarah – they definitely had chemistry. They were cute together!

Both stories were brilliant reads and I 100% recommend this box set! As always, I look forward to more from this author again in the future!

Drew: Book One of the Perfectly Independent Series by Amanda Shelley – Review by Katie Matthews

Drew (Perfectly Independent, #1)Drew by Amanda Shelley
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 

This is the first book that I have read by this author and what a wonderful book it was! I really liked the plot and the characters. I think I fell in love with Drew pretty much straight away, I definitely had a preconceived idea of what he was going to be like but I was wrong. He was just so lovely and mature. Abby was lovely too; they were both not what each other expected and I loved watching them grow over the story. I like that their relationship wasn’t rushed, it was perfect for them. I really like YA reads as they are usually so easy to read and this one definitely was. I would highly recommend this book and I cannot wait to read more from this author again in the future.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 

This was one of those cute romance reads that leaves you feeling all warm and fuzzy inside acter you’ve finished reading it. I loved how easy it was to read and how relatable the characters were. The author had the perfect pace and flow for the story. I think it only took me a few hours to devour as it was such a nice story to read. I really liked Brody and Willabelle, I found that they had such a genuine connection between them and I was definitely rooting for them the whole way through the story. Whilst this might have been a quick read it certainly wasn’t missing anything for me. I loved it, I can’t wait to read more from this author again and I would highly recommend it as a lovely easy to read romance story!

Caine (Men of Syn Book 2) by Anise Storm – Review by Katie Matthews

Caine (Men of Syn, #2)Caine by Anise Storm
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 

After loving the first book in this series I was really looking forward to getting started on Caine and it didn’t disappoint. It was everything I was expecting – dark, exciting and very sexy! I loved Caine and Emery’s story – brilliant from the very first page until the very last, I wasn’t actually sure I was going to like Emery, it did take me a whole to warm up to her but I enjoyed seeing her evolve as the story progressed and seeing how the relationship between her and Caine changed also.
This is definitely a recommended read from me!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 

What a way to kick of a new series! I love this author there’s no denying it so I was really excited when I saw this new release from her and wow what an amazing read! I was hooked from beginning to end. I love mafia romance and this was the perfect example of that genre! Action, tension, angst, romance – this book had it all and more! I LOVED Max – oh my gosh he was totally swoon worthy! Liliana really surprised me actually, I didn’t expect her to be so strong but she was amazing! She held her own when she needed to. I absolutely loved both of them together and their story was so exciting to read! I can’t wait for more from this author!

Fight for it by Amy L Gale – Review by Katie Matthews

Fight for It (Sunset Cove)Fight for It by Amy L. Gale
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 

I really enjoyed this story, it was easy to read, had a nice pace and flow and great characters too. I love sports romance stories so this one was right up my street! I loved Ray! I really felt for him and everything he went through – boxing was so important to him. Alyssa was such a lovely character too; she had been through a lot as well. I think as soon as these two came together again I could tell there was something. They had a genuine and real connection and a lot of chemistry too!
Overall, I really enjoyed this book and would definitely recommend it to other readers.

TAINTED by Marsha R. West – Review by Katie Matthews

TaintedTainted by Marsha R West
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 

Tainted was a really enjoyable read. It didn’t take me long to become fully absorbed in what I was reading. This is the first book that I have read by this author and definitely won’t be the last. I really like the main character, Liz; she had been through so much in her life and she dealt with it so well. She was a likeable character and I enjoyed reading about her. The cabin in the mountains that she went down sounded so lovely and idyllic, definitely what Liz needed after everything with her husband. Sparks definitely flew when she was faced with someone from her past. I loved the twists and turns in the story, the author did a great job with the suspense running through the book.
Overall, I thought this was a great read and one I would highly recommend.
