Jennifer’s review of Until Sage by Aurora Rose Reynolds

Title: Until Sage

Author: Aurora Rose Reynolds
Genre: Contemporary romance
Stars: 5🛍🛍🛍🛍🛍
FINALLY!!!!!
Finally I have my story of Sage Mayson! Sage and Kim have had my attention since Until Jax where I first saw small bits of their very rocky relationship. I love that the very first thing I read was all the yummy details of how they met. The story is well written and the characters are lovable. This story was funny, sweet, and a bit emotional at times. I love the characters! I absolutely adore Sage! Sage and Kim had me laughing out loud, tearing up a bit and at times extremely frustrated. I love all of Mrs. Rose’s books, but I think I may now have a new favorite. Sage: my new forever book boyfriend!

 

Jennifer’s review of A Change in Tide by Freya Barker

Title: A Change in Tide

Author: Freya Barker

Genre: Contemporary romance

Stars: 5🛍🛍🛍🛍🛍

This book….. This book is beautiful, from the cover to the story itself. The characters are a bit unique because they are just like regular people. They have tragedies and triumphs and could be my next door neighbor or the lady down the street. This helps to make the story special for me. They are well written and thought out. I enjoyed the story very much. It is beautifully written and flows so well. I loved the slow build of the story. There was no hurry to get to the end. I was so focused on the story itself I read all through the night. This is an amazing book by such an amazing author!

Jennifer’s review of How We Fall by Melissa Toppen

Author: Melissa Toppen

Title: How We Fall

Genre: Contemporary romance, second-chance romance, friends to lovers

Stars: 5🛍🛍🛍🛍🛍

For me, this is one of the best stories of 2017 so far!  This is a beautifully written friends to lovers second chance story. The main characters are best friends growing up. Cole leaves for college and they don’t see each other for the next six years until tragedy brings them back together. Between the story and the characters, I was lost myself in the pages of this book. I read straight through and didn’t come up for air until I was finished. I absolutely love Melissa Toppen! This book is now my favorite of hers ( I love it even more than Taming Lo)! I think this is a definite must read for everyone who loves love!

Ashley’s 4.5-🛍🛍🛍🛍🛍 Review 

Book: Falling Sweetly 

Author: Aidan Willows 

Genre: Romantic Comedy/ Contemporary Romance 

Release Date: September 19, 2016

Series: Starling Falls #2

Stars: 4.5

  

      I am an absolute fan of Ms. Willows. I love how her characters are so relatable. I could picture myself as Annika with all of her insecurities and understated strength. 

      Annika (Nikki) Abbot is a shy pastry chef who inherited a bakery after her great aunt dies. She doesn’t have the self confidence to go after any man and she has major self doubts. Nikki has an awkwardness about her that is so endearing to me. 

      Jacob (Jake) Jameson is the head chef at a fine dining restaurant. He wants Nikki, but she’s been avoiding him like the plague since the New Years party. When Jake get a devastating review from the fine dining reviewer his world slowly starts to fall apart. 

      Jake with the help of Nikki start on a joint adventure to help Jake open up a family-style restaurant. But then disaster strikes. From sabotage to vandalism, will Jake ever be able to open the restaurant? 

        If you are looking for a heartwarming story this is the one. I highly recommend this book!!!

Ashley’s Review of Beneath the Skin by Daryl Banner

Ashley’s 4.5-🛍🛍🛍🛍🛍 Review 

Book: Beneath the Skin 

Author: Daryl Banner

Release Date: September 11, 2016

Genre: Contemporary Romance 

Series: A College Obsession Romance 

Stars: 4.5

     True to form, Mr. Banner writes a funny, light-hearted romance with a few unexpected twists. If you didn’t read Read My Lips, the first book in this wonderful series, you won’t be lost because this book is a standalone but I recommend reading it because it introduces the main character of this story. 

      

      Brant is self proclaimed lover of women. He’s a love them and leave them type. He basically flits from one college coed to the next never becoming attached and never developing feelings for any of them. 

      Then comes Nell. Their first encounter is when Nell finds Brant in a compromising situation in the back of her art class. Brant is captivated by her from that first meeting, but Nell uses her sarcastic standoffish attitude to not let him get too close. 

   

        Surprisingly Nell ends up pushing Brant away. Their is such a sadness in Nell that breaks my heart. Will Nell help Brant reform his man-whoring ways of will Nell just be another notch on his belt? I really enjoyed Nell and Brant’s journey through the choppy waters of college life.

Ashley’s Review of More Than Miles by Autumn Jones Lake

Ashley’s 5-🛍🛍🛍🛍🛍  Review
Book: More Than Miles
Author: Autumn Jones Lake
Genre: Contemporary Romance/ MC Romance
Series: Lost Kings MC #6
Release date: August 16, 2016
Stars: 5

Absolutely love this series!!!!  Autumn is an absolute genius!  Murphy, Axel and Heidi were in a love triangle that was bound to explode in fireworks.
It all starts on Heidi’s 18th birthday… Murphy comes to pick her up for her birthday ride on his motorcycle and things heat up from there. But then Murphy calls her Bug, a childhood nickname, and it’s like throwing a cold bucket of water on her libido. She only thinks he calls her Bug to keep his distance from her because she thinks he still sees her as a kid.
Axel, Heidi’s boyfriend, is a prospect for the Lost Kings MC. He’s just not really into it like Heidi would like him to be. Axel and Heidi really love each other considering their young age. She opens up to him about her childhood horrors, hopes and dreams.
And then there is Murphy, Road Captain of the Lost Kings MC. He grew up around the Lost Kings MC with Heidi and Teller. Murphy sees Heidi as a kid sister until one day it all changed and then he has to keep his distance from her because he’s 8-years older than her and she is Teller’s sister. Murphy was a man-whore and slept with any woman, but then he proclaims his love for Heidi on her 18th birthday and says he’s reformed his man-whoring ways.
There are so many twists and turns in this book. Heartache, passion and tears comprise for a very moving book. Who will she choose?  Will Murphy’s declaration mean anything to Heidi, will they live happily ever after or go up in flames?
