The Dating Itinerary by Brooke Williams

I don’t even know where to start with my thoughts on this book. I loved Penny and her relationship with her sisters. They seem to have an incredibly close bond which I envy. The dynamic between the four woman made me smile, even if it wasn’t the full set.

Geo melted my heart for so many reasons, I think the biggest was his relationship with his nephew who sounded like a handful and then some. He has such a soft spot for Eliot and his sister Maggie.

I enjoyed watching their relationship evolve throughout the book. And could wait to see where their next adventure led. I laughed a lot and cried just a bit.

This is my first time reading anything by Ms. Williams, but it certainly won’t be the last.

I’ll See You Again: A Scottish rock star, standalone opposites-attract romance (Reigning Hearts Book 4) by K.G. Fletcher

Oh my goodness, this book had me all over the place. I laughed and was happy, I got angry and even cried reading this book. I had a few moments where I really wasn’t happy with the direction of the story but it wouldn’t have worked any other way so I got over it. Sort of.

Nicky finally has her story with a little help from her friend Amber. What girl hasn’t dreamt of meeting a hot musician? I can remember quiet a few I dreamt about over the years.

Mac had me wrapped around his finger fairly early on and it only got worse (for me) as I read further.

I loved this story and the series. I’m not ready to say bye so I’m really hoping Amber gets to tell her story.

True Bastard: A Dark Sparrow Novel by India Kells

I know going in there will be some danger and suspense when I read the books from this series, but I for some reason seem surprised when it happens, but I can’t seem to put the book down no matter what.

This series has been amazing so far and I love Liam and how he makes sure he is nothing like his father which I could relate to. He’s quite the stand up guy and he would do anything for Catriona even when he felt like he should be fighting it.

Catriona is an amazing woman with a heart of gold and God’s ear. She brings so much happiness and joy to everyone she meets. Cary and Ted broke and melted my heart.

I cant wait to find out what happens with Sam!

Road Tripped: Satan’s Devils MC Utah #1 by Manda Mellett

Like Road, it took me a bit to warm up to the Utah club. I wasn’t sure what to expect with them, it was much more than I could have imagined. There were questions from previous books that were answered and now I have more but I figure they will come.

I have read several of the Satan’s Devils books and I love the complexities of each of these characters. They all have several layers to them, some hide more than others which of course only intrigues me more.

This series is absolutely amazing and I can’t recommend it enough. These guys are all hard like you would expect a biker to be, but they are totally different with their families.

Are we going to see Vegas next or will we learn more about San Diego and Utah first? Either way I can’t wait for the next book.

Shattered: Rhodes Family Book 1 by Lisa Wood

If your looking a hot romance but don’t have a lot of time to sit and read this is the book for you to try.

Olivia made me want to shake her a few times. She was so set that she refused to look at the other side or let anyone explain. I know she got burned but to take that strong of a stance I felt was a bit extreme.

Gabriel, oh Gabriel. He’s hot, successful and a man. He decided he knew best and boy did that blow up.

The chemistry between Olivia and Gabriel was intense from the moment they met and only got hotter from there.

I enjoyed this book, already have the next one ready to go in my Kindle.

Love Song: A friends-to-lovers rock & roll romantic suspense by K.G. Fletcher

This book had the perfect mix of romance and suspense for me. I loved Sam and Casey from the very beginning and was so thankful that they didn’t play games or beat around the bush.

The character that stole my heart was GG. How stinking cute was she? I just wanted to wrap her in my arms so I could love and protect her. Oh, and Bleu also suckered me in. What is it with little ones and dogs? I’m so unable to resist them.

I really enjoyed every minute of this book and every other I have read by Ms. Fletcher. Looking forward to the next book.

As much as I liked Kelly and Tate’s story, I think Gianna and Tyler is now my favorite. I loved getting to see the side if Tyler we didn’t see in the first book and how he came to a lot of realizations about everything. His family, his feelings about his past and now his future.

Gianna was quite endearing for a New Yorker. She had that hard exterior, but inside she was a big softy and was doing what she could to protect herself and her livelihood.

There are so many things I want to mention but they’re so entrical to the story line that I’m afraid to spoil something.

I don’t think you will be disappointed in this book and how it ends. I can’t wait for the next one.

Drawn to Him by Tammy Mannersly

I truly think Erica is my soul mate. She tries to be as normal as possible, but really ends up failing in what I think is the best possible way. The incident in the storage room at the beginning is something I could have done in the same situation. It only endeared her to me at lot sooner than I would have expected.

Matt is a good friend for putting up with Nate and having to be his wingman, there is something to be said about having a friend who would do anything for you. I would know since I’m fortunate enough to have one.

Who could have expected the turn out for the singles art class? Who could have expected that that first class was the start of something totally unexpected?

I really enjoyed the twists and turns in this book. Started off with small things but then the incidents got bigger and bolder.

I hope I’m not the only one, but am I the only who heard the book in their head with the Australian accent? Oh, I really hope not.

The book flowed well and I throughly enjoyed it. I believe this the first book by Ms. Mannersly I have had the pleasure of reading, and I hope to see more by her in the future.

Better Than Goodbye (Venture Book 1) by Kinney Scott

How have I managed to not find this author before now? I’m not sure how it happened but I’m glad I have found her. And I have already grabbed the first book in her last series to get started on them just as soon as possible.

This was not your typical second chance story and I think that is one of the things I liked about it.

Kent and Amanda had a special relationship starting back when they were kids in high school. There was a pull that neither one of them could deny. Watching them struggle through the years was tough but most relationships have their ups and downs. I just wish they talked to each other as much as they talked to their friends.

I love the fiesty Babette and the shy Matilda and hope to see more of both of them in the future.

Very enjoyable story and looking forward to reading more from this author in the future.

The Trouble With Paradise (The Madeline Dawkins Series Book 4) by Cynthia Hamilton

I think this is my favorite of the series so far. I’m sure I felt that way about the last one too but I really enjoyed every minute I spent reading this book. Madeline is a bad a&^ lady and she proves it time and time again.

The two cases Madeline and Mike have this time are almost impossible to figure out. Two women widowed. One is jail, one isn’t but they both want answers. If anyone can figure out what happened it’s Madeline and Mike.

Can we talk about Samir for just a second? How awesome is he? I feel he is under appreciated and no matter what Madeline does for him it will never be enough.

Can’t wait for the next book to come out so I can find out what happens next.
