THE DAY THAT CHANGED EVERYTHING by CATHERINE MILLER

‘Sometimes goodbyes weren’t hard when it meant leaving a place that had left you broken.’

Catherine Miller is a new to us, author and in The Day That Changed Everything, she tells a story of second chances, friendship and self-discovery, about finding hope and happiness after one of the most heartbreaking and painful events changed her life forever.

The story is emotionally told from a ‘then’ and ‘now’ perspective as we learn the last twenty-four hours of Andy’s life throughout the book, and also why Tabitha is carrying so much guilt, and we really enjoyed our first taste of Catherine Miller's prose -  this author certainly knows how to weave a sweet and emotional story with lots of heart. More a story of self-discovery, there is a tiny thread of romance that warmed made our hearts skip a beat.

FOR EMERY (For You #4) by J NATHAN

‘I’m gonna be your biggest fan, Jordan Grady. You just wait and see.’

We’ve adored each book in the For You Series by J Nathan. They’re stories of love and friendship and growth, and in each book, we witness the characters grow and find love, and in the case of For Emery, we discover a sweet friend to lover’s romance. Each book in the series focuses on a different couple and can be read as standalone’s although characters from other books do make appearances throughout each book.

There is a serious nature woven into For Emery that is topical and poignant, yet this is predominantly a story of childhood friends, first love, family and friendships. And added bonus was catching snippets of past characters from For Finlay, For Forrester and For Crosby as their sports careers and love lives prosper and their dreams are fulfilled.

UNSPOKEN WORDS by K.M. GOLLAND

“We need to talk. You need to yell. I need to let you yell. And then we both need to cry and hold each other.”

By the closing chapters of Unspoken Words, we found ourselves welling up as K.M. Golland's story about fate and a once in a lifetime love, came to a close. This is a love story that began when two souls met at twelve, and despite obstacles and the complexities of youth and first love, they would reconnect and once again their bonds of love are tested.

There were some truly beautiful quotes and moments in this story and our hearts did ache throughout as K.M. Golland reminded us of the mark some people make in our lives and how we need to grasp and enjoy every precious and memorable moment.

SHINE NOT BURN (Shine Not Burn #1) by ELLE CASEY

The question is, could I have a one night stand with a man named Mack who wears a cowboy hat to a casino?’

This book has been sitting on our kindle for four years and we’re so annoyed with ourselves that we’ve only read it now. But that’s the life of a book worm. We buy books every single day but haven’t got the time to read them all even though we’d love nothing more. With thousands of unread books on our Kindles we’re spoilt for choice so sometimes it’s such a happy revelation when we find that perfect book for our reading mood already sat on our kindles. Andie and Mack’s story was just wonderful and we loved every single minute. It had hilarious banter, swoony romance and hot n’ saucy naughty ‘cuddle time’.

What a sweet, funny and saucy ride this was, we highly recommend it to all the romantics out there who love their second chance cowboy romances.

SIX WEEKS OF LOVING YOU by KARLI PERRIN

“What’s the difference in being your friend or being your lover? You’ll forget me regardless. So why can’t I choose what I want to be to you?”
“Because I don’t want you to get hurt. I don’t want you to get a broken heart.”
“Trust me, it’s already full of cracks.”

What a sweet and beautiful story! Six Weeks of Loving You is our first-time reading author Karli Perrins work and we adored her words. We could easily see this book becoming a movie as it played out before our eyes. It had a 50 First Dates/The Vow feel, with a real emotional and romantic pull, and the authors own stamp branded throughout the pages.

We loved the humour and banter between all the characters, Karli Perrin has a fabulous sense of humour and who wouldn’t fall in love with the bromance between Spencer and Cora’s sister’s fiancé, Adam? It was hilarious! An enjoyable story with a few twists, where the swoon, emotion and engaging storyline made this a fabulous weekend read.

IF YOU GIVE A JERK A GINGERBREAD (Reindeer Falls #2) by JANA ASTON

“It’s Christmas, Ginger, and anything is possible at Christmas. Have a little faith in the magic.”

If You Give a Jerk a Gingerbread is the second book in Jana Aston’s scrumptiously funny, sweet and sexy Christmas romp series. This novella features Ginger, the sister of Holly from The Boss Who Stole Christmas. These novellas are completely standalone, however, why only have one slice of Christmas cake when you can eat the whole damn thing and guarantee a complete Christmas indulgent satisfaction?!

We’ve completely fallen in love with this town, the setting, the people and the romance of it all. Jana Aston has completely wooed us and we’ve become addicted to everything Reindeer Falls. We just cannot get enough, and whilst we’re excited for the last book, The One Night Stand Before Christmas, which is the last sister, Noel’s story, we’re kind of gutted that this’ll be the end. We could keep reading these all the way through December!

LEAVE ME BREATHLESS by JODI ELLEN MALPAS

“This is me, Ryan. There is nothing else for me to give you, just this. Isn’t it enough?”
I find myself smiling almost immediately, her message received loud and clear. It is more than enough.’

If you’re a fan of Jodi Ellen Malpas you’ll no doubt be dying to flip the pages of her latest standalone, Leave Me Breathless. The trademarks of this author are all apparent, the ones we’ve all come to love from her, but in Ryan Willis, although still possessive and commanding, we have hero somewhat ‘softer’ for want of a better word, and we loved him! In saying that, Ryan Willis very much retains the masculine alpha Jodi writes so well. Ex-M15 and army, he’s the guy you’d want on your side…and in your bed. Phwoarrr, he really is very delicious without being overbearing!

We were certainly kept entertained throughout Leave Me Breathless, falling in love with the characters – especially the banter with Ryan and his daughter, Alex. She really was an old soul and gave us quite the giggle. The closing chapters were especially emotional and a perfect place to end Ryan and Hannah’s story. A charming and at times suspenseful story we adored!

MOONLIGHTER (The Company #1) by SARINA BOWEN

“Are you ready to go to war for her?”
“War,” I repeat slowly. “Against whom?”
“Does it matter”

Moonlighter is the first book in Sarina Bowen's new series, The Company, an offshoot of her Brooklyn Bruisers Hockey Series and the character crossover is a great way to catch up with some old friends.

The meshing of sports and techy espionage worked incredibly well in Moonlighter and we’re itching to see where this goes, and especially excited to learn more about the secretive Max and the girl with all the answers, Scout! We were kept on our toes in a tale with an abundance of romance, heat, humour, secrets and duplicity. An entertaining introduction to The Company series.

THE GOLDEN HOUR by L.M. HALLORAN

'Holding her is my reward….'

A cat and mouse game of sinister turns, suspenseful moments and passionate love.

L.M. Halloran is an automatic 1click author for us, and she's an author who knows how to deliver a dark romantic suspense, ensuring we're spellbound with every twisty turn. The way she threads her characters through various stories, makes us desperate to become more acquainted with each one we meet, which was the case with Finn McCowen, a character we met briefly in the fabulous Illusions Duet.
