LOVE HURTS DUET by M ROBINSON

“I want a guy who wants to be with me. The one who will do anythin’ to make me happy. The man who puts me first before everythin’ and anyone. I want the fairytale, my own Prince Charmin’. I know my worth, and I won’t stop till I find him. I refuse to settle. It’s just not in me.”

We loved how Monica Robinson turned this duet around and we found ourselves rooting for Harley and Jackson. The misunderstandings, the secrecy and the pretence all combined in conspiring to stand in the way of a true love. Harley and Jackson’s very own chaotic version of love. It was quite the emotional rollercoaster and we absolutely wanted to bang their heads together a few times. What they both let stand in their way of finding true happiness in each other’s arms was agonising at times. Monica Robinson threw in a few twists, which we loved, and she made sure we truly felt those important emotions in Love You Now. There’s a fine line between love and hate and Monica Robinson got it just right in our opinion. Love will always win!

DEVASTATED (Anger Management #1) by R.L. MATHEWSON

‘Over the past several months he’d become her best friend. He made her laugh, teased her, tormented her, made her feel protected; and those times when she struggled, he was there holding her and letting her know she was safe. For the first time in her life, she felt…Whole.’

Devastated by R.L Mathewson has shot itself right into our top reads by this Author. We absolutely loved it. Having been huge fans since 2011, we found Devastated to have the trademark humour of RL Mathewson which we love so much, but with a brand new mature and emotional twist to her writing. There’s no question that whilst easily recognisable as a Mathewson story, Devastated shows a new side to her. There is something very special about a slow burn romance where the characters start off as enemies, become friends and eventually fall for each other. It was pure emotional angst peppered with humour and raw vulnerability.

THE TROUBLE WITH YOU (Rixon Raiders #1) by L.A. COTTON

‘Being a Rixon Rider came with a certain set of privileges. We were treated like gods in the halls at school; and outside the school gates, around town, wasn’t much different. It was easy to get swept up in it all. The girls. The attention. The respect.’

The Trouble with You by L.A Cotton is the first book we’ve read by this Author and we’re now hooked and can’t wait for the next book in this series. Each book in the Rixon Raiders series can be read as a standalone as it features different couples, however, we meet them all in this book so a connection has been made, be it positive or negative…HA!

We love high angst and The Trouble with You is chock a block with it, in this enemies to lovers YA/NA romance. There’s nothing like starting off seriously disliking a character and then the Author cleverly making you turn a one-eighty and actually care by the end! The different POV’s certainly helped too.

PIERCED HEARTS DUET by M ROBINSON

**Spoiler Free Duet Review**

‘I gave her everything. My friendship. My heart. My soul. My love and devotion...’

The Pierced Hearts Duet by Monica Robinson is a perfect blend of raw emotion, soul-searing love, broken hearts, and dream-inspiring hope and happiness. We were dying to read Aiden Pierce’s story! He was an enticing enigma; a sexy angry alpha mystery, who had our hearts beating and our pulse racing. We were not prepared to feel such heart-breaking sadness, confusion and have conflicted feelings as we did, whilst reading this duet. Whilst Monica Robinson is known for her angsty romances this slow build duet came across more as a healing journey of survival after immense tragedy, finding absolution, acceptance and a life after loss.
