THE AUSSIE NEXT DOOR (Patterson’s Bluff #1) by STEFANIE LONDON

"Thank you."
"For what?"
"For being you."

Stefanie London is a new to us author and her latest book, The Aussie Next Door served as the perfect introduction to her writing. Based in Patterson's Bluff, a small town in Melbourne Australia, this emotional rom-com was packed with humour, heart, and heat, not to mention a hero who soon had us falling head over heels!

There were so many elements we enjoyed in this story. The characters, the setting, the romance, the memorable 90's rom-com’s we love so much, and of course, add dogs into the equation and we're goners!  Those naughty and sweet little canines kept Jace on his toes and brought endless smiles to our faces! All Angie ever wanted was love, comfort and a home, in this sweet and tender love story, travel with her as she searches for her happily ever after.

THAT FOREVER GIRL (Getting Lucky #2) by MEGHAN QUINN

“I like to believe that some people hold the beat of another human’s heart in theirs, and they spend their entire lives searching for the owner.”

What a joy it was to be back with the Knightly clan and all the loveable quirky characters who reside in Port Snow, that quaint little New England town where meddlers, gossipers, and well-meaning folk make it a point to know each other’s business. And the sexy Knightly boys are most certainly the topic of conversation on many lips! There's plenty to gossip about since Griffin, Rogan, Reid, and Brig were love cursed by an angry clairvoyant two years ago on a boozy boys trip in New Orleans.

If you love small-town romances that are rich in scenery, packed with sweetness, heat, and fun, and looking for an easy reading escape, look no further than the Getting Lucky series! We promise it will put a smile on your face!

QUIET MAN (Dream Man #4.5) by KRISTEN ASHLEY

“I make you mine, officially, no one ever has you again, Lottie, but me.”

Reading Quiet Man by Kristen Ashley was pure indulgence for us. We often reminisce about the old school KA who we love with all our hearts. The Rock Chicks series and The Dream Man series being just two of this Author’s series which we can re-read over and over again and still feel how we did the first time we read them. So, to say we felt like we were in reading heaven with Quiet Man is putting it mildly.

We loved being back here, we loved the fact that there’s more to come and we would’ve loved to have kept reading! The joining of The Dream Man series and The Rock Chicks was brilliantly written and we felt the power when all these characters were gathered. Our hearts! The nostalgia for us was all over this novella, not just in regard to the characters but over the fact that this is as close as we’ve gotten to the old school KA we know and love, and it’s been a while since we were last able to say that. Bring it on! We want more!

A GIFT IN DECEMBER by JENNY GLADWELL

“I’m not completely sorry we both had our hearts broken. Not if it meant us ending up here.”

A gift in December by Jenny Gladwell is one of the most scenically beautiful stories we’ve read in a while. This historical fictional romance, which is mainly set in the snowy mountains of Norway, had such a vivid atmosphere we felt the cold winter nights, we tasted the snowflakes on our tongues and we breathed in the crystal cold fresh air. We have a new bucket list destination!

We absolutely loved the mystery, the setting and the romance of this story. It held us captivated from the first till the last page. From a dreary and rainy November in London, to a snowy and beautiful Norway, we became engrossed in a story of love, hope, memories and intrigue – focusing on a moment of history still honoured today.

MOTI ON THE WATER by LEYLAH ATTAR

‘Alex had a dream. He had talent and drive and ambition. Every night, under the light of the moon, he cast his net toward the heavens to catch the stars.’

Moti on the Water by Leylah Attar was just hilarious, sweet and so rich with lessons in love, life and different cultures. It really read like those romantic comedies we love to watch and this book is a prime candidate to be made into a movie. Leylah Attar grabbed us from the get-go with a quirky family dynamic, an adorable heroine, a passionate hero and an engaging storyline which, whilst quite predictable, had us furiously turning the pages with a huge smile on our faces. What a wonderful summer read on the beach or by the pool! Just make sure, if like Moti you can’t swim, that you wear a swim vest as you’ll be swept away in the pages.

Leylah Attar writes with such beauty and poise. Her words flawlessly transport you into her world, where the scenery and food serve as their own rightful and stunning characters. Its peace and tranquillity forming the landscape for the utter chaos of family relationships.

HER WILD RIDE (Red Dragons MC Series Book #1) by HEATHER VAN FLEET

‘The moment I sat across him in that booth last night, I had him pegged. Tormented and broody, secrets running amok in his head, angry at the world, but willing to give it a shot regardless. In a way, Niyol and I were kind of alike. I, too, wanted a new shot at life. A shot where I could just be me, forgoing my past and my pains for a chance at reinventing myself. Who I was as a woman, most of all. No longer would I be someone’s second in life.’

Her Wild Ride by Heather Van Fleet is our first book by this Author and we fell in love with her writing and her characters. This story really is a story of two halves. The first half is a slow burn romance between two people from very different walks of life. They are placed in a situation of close proximity, over a lengthy road trip, where the author does a stellar job of establishing a growing connection by fleshing out her characters. Their past, present and their need for new beginnings.

This wasn’t a typical MC romance, well, not like one we’ve read before. Rather than jumping straight into the MC life, Her Wild Ride is all about the characters, with the MC world set as a background until the latter part of the story. We loved this story-telling and truly connected with both Niyol and Summer, individually and as a couple. We wholeheartedly believed in their ‘opposites attract’ romance, so when the MC world caught up with them we felt all the angst and emotion.

ALL GROWN UP by VI KEELAND

Now Live!
"The truth is, you can never have the right feelings at the wrong time because there is never a wrong time for the right person." 

If you’re in search for the perfect summer read, look no further than All Grown Up by Vi Keeland, a  sweet and sexy forbidden age gap romance that will fill those summer days and make you swoon. The setting of Montauk adds to the ambiance by providing those lazy hazy summer feelings. Not to mention, you're about to fall in love with Ford Donovan!

Vi Keeland takes the age gap theme and draws attention to the stigma placed upon the older woman and the younger man scenario. Whilst the reverse age gap is readily accepted, many women still battle with perception and acceptance, and Val's conflicting emotions were perfectly highlighted in a story that's as much about love as it is self-discovery, about believing in yourself and trusting your heart.

THE ASSIST (Smart Jocks Series #1) by REBECCA JENSHAK

"You're like the best of both worlds - hot jock meets hot nerd."
"All I just heard was you calling me hot."

If first impressions are anything to go by, Rebecca Jenshak's introduction to everyone at Valley U was a winner! We were left hungry for more and had to jump straight into The Fadeaway, the next book in Smart Jocks series the minute we finished The Assist, and we are loving that book so far!!!

If you're looking for something a little different in the sports romance college trope, then read The Assist. It was refreshing to see the stereotypical college jock scenario flipped on its head by introducing us to Wes Reynolds, the broody basketballer gifted with a photographic memory and who is anything but a 'dumb jock'. In fact, not only is Wes seriously good looking, sexy and loyal to a fault, he's intelligent to boot, though, on first impressions, he did seem rather menacing!
