Monthly REVIEWS/RECOMMENDATIONS

  • The Traveling Man by Jane Harvey Berrick ($.99) <– my last read that totally wrecked me! It was one emotional rollercoaster I couldn’t get off (not sure if I even wanted to). Anyways, if it sounds like something you might love, preorder a copy for $.99 and it’ll arrive on your e-reader on Jan. 27! (here’s my review)
  • Calling Me Home by Julie Kibler <– my latest TOP recommendation and first 5 star read of the year! Just thinking about this book is making my eyes water. I took a chance on this one and I strongly encourage you all to do the same (here’s my review)
  • Falling Away by Penelope Douglas <– recent release and the latest in her steamy NA romance series! While I didn’t love it, I did like it, and the heroine’s character growth really impressed me (here’s my review)
  • Dirty Ties by Pam Godwin <– new release and probably one of the steamiest books I’ve ever read!! There’s some suspense and the story smacked me with twists after turn. I liked it, and if you’re in the mood for an erotic romance, try this one! (here’s my review)
  • Holly Lane by J.B. Morgan <– my last few reads were all on the dark and emotional side so I picked up this sweet holiday romance!

  • Raze by Tillie Cole <– new favorite and recommendation for all dark romance fans!! The one and only word to describe this book would be INTENSE.

If you’re looking for a book that’s guaranteed to get your heart pumping, try this one  (here’s my review)
  • Sweet Fall by Tillie Cole <– a new favorite and TOP recommendation!! This NA romance is one of the darkest and emotionally heavy stories I’ve read in a long while, but it was exactly what I was in the mood for. It also made me ugly cry and I’m just blown away by the amount of emotion it evoked….if you’re looking for a standalone romance guaranteed to make you FEEL, try this one! (here’s my review)
  • Dear Emily (#1) and Dear Tabitha (#2) by Trudy Stiles <– new favorites and TOP recommendation! These books are a blend of realistic women’s fiction with romance and made my heart feel so full…I loved both and being able to read them back to back let me carry my emotions from the first book to the second without delay. BEST kind of reading experience!! Here’s my review for book 1 and here’s my review for book 2. Be sure to read these in order!
  • Within These Walls by J.L. Berg <– I liked this one! It was such a sweet and heartwarming romance read. Both characters were likable and the message the book sends out is uplifting. If you’re looking for a standalone romance to fall in love with, try this one! (here’s my review)
  • Bad Romeo by Leisa Rayven <– Unfortunately, I didn’t love this one much. Both main characters were frustrating and the plot kept moving in circles…(here’s my review)
  • Extinguish (#1) and Reignite (#2) by JM Darhower <– TOP recommendation!! This 2-book paranormal forbidden romance was unputdownable from the get go and I didn’t want the story to end.

  • Halfway to the Grave by Jeaniene Frost <– this paranormal romance was so witty and refreshing!! I really enjoyed it and I fell hard for the vampire hero (here’s my review)

  • Amour Amour by Krista & Becca Ritchie <– I really enjoyed this NA romance! This was so unique (setting is in the circus) and the character development was stunning! It truly embodies every aspect of NA and as always, the authors’ writing style is great. Totally recommend (here’s my review)
  • Last Will & Testament by Dahlia Adler <– another favorite! This was such a refreshingly witty NA romance standalone (a little taboo since he’s the heroine’s TA). Totally recommend it (here’s my review)

  • Clockwork Angel (#1)Clockwork Prince (#2), and Clockwork Princess (#3) by Cassandra Clare are my ultimate TOP recommendations!!
