KING OF SOULS (Nico & Ari Duet #2) VERONA LEGACY by L.A. Cotton

‘I didn’t want to be Arianne’s prince. I wanted to be her king. The king of her heart. The king of her soul.’

Without question, the love story between Nicco and Ari was straight out a mafia version of a Romeo & Juliet type romance. Both suffering from the forced inability to be together. Family wars, criminal wrongdoings, violence and the sins of the fathers. It’s all there with love as the shining beacon.

GHOST NOTE: A ROCK STAR ROMANCE by VICKI JAMES

“Do you want to know the best thing about falling in love with a rock star? There are no rules. Nothing is impossible.”

Maybe not impossible, but there are a lot of hurdles and hurts to overcome when your first love and the love of your life chooses a life of music and a legion of adoring fans over you or is sometimes the pain of heartbreak a shield that prevents us from seeing the truth?

Vicki James has delivered a sweet, and at times passionate second chance, small-town romance, in a story about believing in yourself; about taking chances. You only get one chance at life, and she reminds us to get out there and grab life by the balls! Another winner in a series we can’t get enough of!

JUST LIKE THE MOVIES by NATASHA PRESTON

‘I would love nothing more than to be with him again. To be his officially. I want him so badly but there is no way to have him and not have everything that comes with dating a movie star.’

Just Like The movies is a new Hollywood friends to lovers romance from Natasha Preston which we couldn’t wait to dive in to. The friends to lovers’ aspect was brilliantly written, especially from Spencer’s pov. This man loved hard and there was literally no drama or angst from his voice. He was such a wonderful character and a rising Hollywood star whose career is just beginning but whose fame is already widespread. How can two friends, one being a movie star and the other an emotionally damaged Uni student possibly have a romantic relationship without the world interfering?

THE WILD HIGHWAY (Runaway #2) by DEVNEY PERRY

“What do you want from me, Easton?”
“For you to get the hell out of my head.”

Wild Highway by Devney Perry is another small-town romance in the Runaway series, a series we’ve fallen utterly in love with. We say it time and time again, Devney Perry writes the sweetest emotional romance. This series is every hopeless romantic's dream. Low on angst and high on character chemistry, having that addictive second chance romance aspect we love so much. Whilst each book can be read as a standalone we’d highly recommend reading in order as the thread of the storyline continues in every instalment.

Reading Wild Highway had us feeling like we were reading with a permanent smile on our face. Yes, it was emotional too, however, the sweet romance was the most prevalent and what a gorgeous and swoon worthy romance it was. An easy and fairly quick light-hearted read, Wild Highway is a wonderful addition to the Runaway series.

THE DARE (Briar U #4) by ELLE KENNEDY

“I only see you.” He takes my hand, rubbing his thumb over the inside of my wrist. “Just as you are.”

Picking up a new book in this series (and the ones before them) is like catching up with old friends. We’ve felt so connected to all the characters we’ve met and fallen in love with throughout the Briar U journey, and now we can add Conor and Taylor to that our friendship list.

The banter, the passion, the emotion and relationship struggles all part and parcel of finding yourself and growing up were once again apparent in this latest instalment, together with some topical subjects.

QUEEN MOVE by KENNEDY RYAN

‘He was my solace and my secret. No one else knew how amazing Ezra was back then, and I liked having him to myself.’

Queen Move by Kennedy Ryan is our first book by this Author and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Friends to lovers is like catnip to us and Kennedy Ryan writes a fabulous take on this trope in Queen Move, as her couple were tested by outside influences and time. We were in awe at how brilliantly the connection between Kimba and Ezra was written despite all the time spent apart. At no stage did we question the strength of their friendship nor the depth of their love for one another. Queen Move was a wonderful story of soulmates and we were hooked.

Queen Move was a wonderfully written story of friendship, love, ambition, family and second chances. It was a powerful emotional journey with a leading Lady that in our opinion stole the story and was quite the inspirational character, and a man who was just gorgeous through and through.

RECKLESS MEMORIES (Wrecked #1) by CATHERINE COWLES

"I needed you, and you just left. Like it was the easiest thing in the world."

Catherine Cowles is an author we've been really looking forward to reading and Reckless Memories was a wonderful introduction to her works, bringing with it an emotional childhood friends to lovers, a tad of the forbidden - a small town romance with a bit of intrigue and suspense which culminated in story that had our hearts racing towards the end!

We do love small town romances, and Catherine Cowles Reckless Memories delivered the atmospheric feel of the picturesque Anchor Island, population 1500, to the point where we could almost visualise ourselves smelling the sea air and taking in our surroundings whilst sipping a drink and chatting to the locals at The Catch.

THE MODERN GENTLEMAN by MEGHAN QUINN

‘This girl was made to make me smile. She was brought into my life to challenge me.’

The Modern Gentleman by Meghan Quinn was such a light-hearted and entertaining read! We were chuckling away at Wes’ antics and swooning over his wooing. Honestly, we fell in love with Wes from the get go, a man with the best of intentions yet pulling these stunts that were straight out of a comedy sketch. Meghan Quinn has such a fabulous sense of humour which just tickles us and this time it was combined with a sweet slow burn romance, so what’s not to love?

MATING THEORY: A Trust Fund Standalone Novel by SKYE WARREN

Mating Theory by Skye Warren was a quick dark and edgy passionate read. This Author writes in such a manner that the raw emotion spills from the pages in an almost lyrical and poetic way. We were gripped from page one and immediately fell in love with Sutton and Ashleigh. There really was something quite mesmerising about their story and the passion literally ignited the pages.

‘I was born with too much dirt to ever wash away, but as always, it can’t actually be seen; I can only feel, and God, I feel it.’

As a standalone Mating Theory is intense, sharp and filled with heat. A story of personal survival, broken hearts that heal, and overcoming fragilities through love, compassion, hope and helping hands. We really enjoyed Mating Theory, it was an emotional ride as well as super-hot.
