No Strings Attached by Lara Ward Cosio – Review by Katie Matthews

No Strings AttachedNo Strings Attached by Lara Ward Cosio
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 

I LOVED this book so much! This author has written some of my favourite books and I was so excited to see a new release from her and it didn’t disappoint at all. Tanner and Kayla were such lovely characters to read about, they had an undeniable chemistry and this is what this author writes about so well. She makes her characters really relatable and you feel as though you are right there with them in their story. There were some great laugh and loud moments mixed in with some very romantic times too. They both had such hectic lives but I was rooting for them the whole way through.

I loved every second of this story and cannot recommend it enough! I would definitely rate it more than 5 stars if I could and it is definitely up there in my top reads of 2021!

Love’s Refrain (The Stardust Duet, Book 1) by KG Fletcher – Review by Katie Matthews

Love's Refrain (The Stardust Duet, #1)Love’s Refrain by K.G. Fletcher
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 

This story was honestly such an amazing read. It was beautifully written and I was completely captivated from the very first page. The author transported me back in time to 1947 and even with the switching of time period I wasn’t confused at all. The planning that clearly went in to this story shone through as it was seamlessly written. I loved the characters Kat and Phillip – their story was so sweet and I just loved reading about them. Their story wasn’t all plain sailing and I was so invested in what I was reading about them that I was rooting for them the whole way through.

I don’t think 5 stars is enough for this story, it truly was an amazing read and I cannot recommend it enough to other readers. Love’s refrain is a fantastic story with brilliant characters and was a truly wonderful read! I cannot wait for book 2!

Entwined (Stone and Cinder Book 1) by A.L. Morrow – Review by Katie Matthews

Entwined: A Cinderella Retelling (Stone and Cinder Book 1)Entwined: A Cinderella Retelling by A.L. Morrow
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 

I really enjoy the fairy tale retellings so when I saw this book, I was really looking forward to reading it. Overall, I really enjoyed it, the author is new to me and I really liked their writing style. It was fun to read and very engaging. The whole story was multi-layered with so much detail and I would say its definitely for an adult audience due to the nature of the story. Whilst some scenes weren’t what I liked I quickly skimmed over them but I cannot fault the authors writing at all – it was beautifully written! I will definitely be looking forward to reading more from this series and I highly recommend it.

THE BOW (HER THREE IMMORTALS Book 3) by HAZEL STORM – Review by Katie Matthews

The Bow: A Fated Mates Greek Myth Paranormal Romance (Her Three Immortals Book 3)The Bow: A Fated Mates Greek Myth Paranormal Romance by Hazel Storm
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 

I was so excited to see the newest instalment to this series and it didn’t disappoint in the slightest – I think this one may be my favourite of the whole series which is hard to say because I’ve loved them all. The action in this story kept me on the edge of seat – Vanessa is such a great character to read about – I really like her. There was a real attraction between Vanessa and her captor and I could definitely feel that coming through the story. The author definitely knows how to captivate me through her writing and this hasn’t wavered at all over the three books! I was also extremely excited that there is more to come from this series too!! I cannot wait!!

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 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.

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!
