Author: Lyz Kelley
Genre: Contemporary romance, suspense, second-chance romance
This is the sixth book in the Elkridge series. It’s also my absolute favorite. This is a beautiful second chance love story. The characters are, as always amazingly real and the story is extremely well written. FINALLY! I know who the killer is! Yay! I laughed a bit, teared up (keep tissues handy!) and fell in love while reading this book. I love this town and these people so much. Lyz Kelley has a way of writing that makes me feel like I’m part of the story and the town. I am so excited to see what she writes after this! I definitely recommend this entire series to EVERYONE!
Author: JL Drake
Genre: romance, dark romance
JL Drake is an absolutely awesome story teller.While I did love Broken, this book just had something a bit extra to it. I laughed a little, cried, shouted at the characters living in my kindle (cause yeah they can hear me lol) and just fell more in love with this story the farther along I got into it. This book is full of twists and turns and will take you on a roller coaster ride of emotions. One of my favorite books you have written so far!
Title: Run (Lakefield Book 1)
Author: Jennifer Vester
Genre: romance, contemporary romance, romantic suspense
I really enjoyed this book. Liv was finally living her life with her best friend Julia after a horrible and traumatic college relationship. She makes a stop to eat dinner and sees Aiden sitting in a business meeting at the table across from her. The attraction is instant for both. Of course Liv decides to run from it. Aiden chases her down to return her forgotten phone. And so the hilarious and suspenseful story starts. Liv and Aiden were perfect. They were absolutely perfect for each other. Aiden is take charge and in control of every aspect of his life. Liv is a book worm, foul mothed, crazy quirky lady. She was always pushing his limits and the banter back and forth is hilarious. I had quite a few laugh out loud moments. The very real danger Liv was in from her stalker had me turning pages to see what would happen next. The story was very well written and the side characters were amazing and so funny at time. I finished this story very quickly. I couldn’t put it down (even while at work)! Definitely 5 stars and I can’t wait to start on Julia’s book!
Title: Only The Pretty Ones
Author: Karen M Bryson
Genre: dark, suspense, romance, thriller, crime drama
Only The Pretty Ones is the first book in the Angry Girl Crime Stories series. It can be read as a standalone or part of the series. This is my first book by Karen M Bryson. I absolutely enjoyed every second of reading this book! It’s full of drama, romance, and is dark and suspenseful. It took me on a roller coaster ride of twists and turns. The story is very well written and the characters are relatable and real. I was sucked in from the beginning and the story wouldn’t let me go! I am definitely looking forward to reading the rest of the series!

In this book we have two people with a ton of emotional baggage trying to find their way to a forever love and still no killer. I don’t think I have the words to say how much I loved this book! The emotions I felt in this book were ripping my heart out. I cried throughout the whole story. I love how I could actually feel what the characters were feeling instead of just reading it. This is my favorite book in the series so far. This author has continued through each book to paint a town and characters that I can picture living in and being friends with. I’m in love with this series and this author! There are a few more hints dropped as well for who the killer is. I’m so excited for the next book. June can’t come fast enough!

When I opened this book, I thought it would turn out to be like other mc books. I was really excited to find that wasn’t the case. Mallory has been on the run for four years with her son Adair. Hunter, Adair’s uncle, catches up to her and brings her and her son home with him. I love Mallory’s sass and sense of humor. She constantly has a snappy comeback for anything being said. She is fiercely protective of her son and her heart. Hunter is a tough man to crack. He has strong walls built around his heart. He is a man who gets what he wants but also has a bit of a softer side (though that side isn’t seen much). I enjoyed the story and the characters. I loved the danger and twists thrown in. It made the story that much more interesting. I also really like the different places you can see where it can lead into a second book. The one thing I didn’t expect in this book is the emotions it had me feeling. I teared up a few times while Mallory was telling her story. It was also emotional when she had a breakdown right after coming home with Hunter. It made the story and the characters more real for me. It’s what helped me to be invested in the book. I hope there will be a second book. I’m also looking forward to what this author will come up with next.

Genre: Contemporary romance, suspense, mystery
Lyz Kelley is a new author for me. I’m very glad I had the opportunity to read this book. I really enjoyed reading Blinded. I love Joey and Mara as well as all the supporting characters. Blinded is a mystery/ romance. The story was well written, and though a little slow in some places, very enjoyable and engaging. I had a large range of emotions while reading this book. It was a good and sweet read but left me with a few unanswered questions. I’m excited to read more of the series to get those questions answered and visit with my favorite characters from this book once again!
