Better To Have Loved by Christy Nicholas – Review by Bobbi Wagner

Better To Have LovedBetter To Have Loved by Christy Nicholas
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I enjoyed this romance story. This is a little different book for this author than what I normally read by her. It is a great story of love lost, found and finding out what really matters in life. This is a well developed story that is engaging and easy to read. I had no problems connecting with the characters as they made the story pop. I found them taking me on an emotional roller coaster ride that I wanted to continue. This story is made up of strong characters that made the story entertaining and pulled me in right from the beginning. Julie leaves her current life to find a better one. On her journey she finds love but is also faced with choices that could make her lose her family or the love she just found. You will have to read to see what happens to her but you don’t want to miss what happens next. I highly recommend this book and this author.

The Dating ItineraryThe Dating Itinerary by Brooke Williams
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Having read previous books from this author I knew that I would have no problem diving into this read and thoroughly enjoying it, and I wasn’t wrong! I loved this book from page 1, it really was a great feel-good, rom-com that had you laughing out loud numerous times throughout and thoroughly enjoying the characters and following along on their journey. These characters were real, down to earth and funny and because of how great the characters are it made me not want to put this read down. This author definitely knows how to create an amazing read that really hooks you, and leaves you wanting more! I highly recommend this read, its not to be missed, and I can’t wait to read more from her!

Finding His Zen by Tammy Mannersly – Review by Karyn Taylor

Finding His ZenFinding His Zen by Tammy Mannersly
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Finding His Zen is a great short read by Tammy Mannersly. I had read another of Tammy Mannersly’s books recently (Drawn To Him) and really enjoyed it, so was looking forward to reading more of her work. Although Finding his Zen is just over 100 pages, the author has packed a great story into those 100 paged and I really enjoyed this book.
Finding His Zen is a small town romance. When top swimmer Sebastian DuMont comes back to his home town to open a new leisure centre his thoughts of retiring and moving home are increased when he meets the lovely owner of the centre, Zenia Andino and is totally taken with her. She’s already a huge fan of his having had had posters on her wall as a teenager.
Needless to say many obstacles are put in the way of the 2 of them trying to start a relationship with each other. In particular Sebastian’s horrid manager who I totally despised throughout the book and also Zenia’s sister who I also was not a fan of at all both were massive obstacles to Seb and Zen having their HEA.
I really enjoyed this book. I loved Seb and Zen. Both are great characters that you can’t help but totally adore and want everything to work out for the pair.
This was a great short read that I devoured in about 90 minutes and did not put down until I was finished.

Accepted (Rhodes Family Book 2) by Lisa Wood – Review by Angela Shirley

AcceptedAccepted by Lisa Wood
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

When you have loved only two men in your life and they both happen to be your best friends, can a friendship survive?

Ava is from the infamous Rhodes family and although she has everything the thing she requires the most is love, while at college she finally gets her fantasy with her best friends with a night of pure passion but by morning everything changes.

After that fateful night Hunter has been trying to fight the demons from his past with trying to move forward. After working with Ava and Thomas for years he now has to ask for forgiveness or will there relationship be lost forever.

Thomas has always struggled with understanding what happened that night, what caused Hunter to run for the hills and because of that his relationship with Ava had fizzled out over the years, but when a letter and a box of letters appears on his doorstep can he find it in his heart to forgive and forget and get back the only people he has ever truly loved.

The first book in this series was brilliant but I think I loved this book more, Ava is such a great strong character within the first book you know there must be a story behind her coldness. The three of them together have great chemistry and although the story in arced with Shattered the first book it does not loss its own flow for their story.

I can’t wait to read the other books in this series and with there being other siblings that are just as interesting in Ava and Gabe I can’t wait.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was such a fresh take on paranormal romance that I greatly enjoyed! It’s a quick and light read, full of laugh out loud humor. It had a good dose of spooky feels to it also! Easy to squeeze into a lazy afternoon and highly recommended for the season.

True Bastard (A Dark Sparrow Novel Book 4) by India Kells – Review by Courtney Ranee

True Bastard (A Dark Sparrow Novel #4)True Bastard by India Kells
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book was something, guys. Liam, a cop, and Catriona, a nun, stole my heart. They were absolutely perfect together. I love when couples aren’t picture perfect for one another in every way and that’s exactly what India Kells gave us with True Bastard. The love in this book is unlikely and unexpected, but it really works. The supporting characters were really well developed, also! While this is book 4, it can be read as a stand-alone.

Rookie Moves: A Quick Snap Novella
By Tarrah Anders
5 out of 5 stars

I loved reading the book Rookie Moves: A Quick Snap Novella by Tarrah Anders. It is a romantic novella that I fell in love with from the beginning. I love the characters of Grant Toolson and Emily Masterson. Grant is a rookie that is attracting a lot of attention. What will happen when he attracts the attention of Emily? Emily is the mayor’s daughter. While she knows how she is supposed to act, when she meets Grant, she finds herself showing him the real her. Emily and Grant have intense chemistry together. What does the future hold for them? Read this book to find out. I love how Emily is a young woman who knows what she likes. She is intelligent, strong, determined, and independent. Grant is a young man who has a past however is looking forward to his future in football. I grew to care about both Grant and Emily with each chapter that I read. There are romantic moments included in this story. I also enjoyed the bantering back and forth between Emily and Grant. Don’t miss out on an amazing story that you will not want to put down until you have finished the last page. I highly recommend reading it.
