OUT OF LOVE by JEWEL E ANN

5 - 'One of our FAVOURITE READS THIS YEAR' - Stars!! How do we move on from this book? Be sure to 1Click this one! What a read!

“Feel it?”
“What, Liv?”
“Wanting something so much it hurts.”

Jewel E. Ann wrote one of our favourite series in Jack and Jill, so we cannot tell you how excited we were to read this standalone spin-off, which features Jackson’s daughter, Livy.  This Author is a magnificent writer and this series is perfect proof of that. Jewel E. Ann manages to thread angst, heat, love and suspense into one hell of a fantastic story that has that underlying fierceness and sarcasm we love so much. Jack and Jill was an epic love story with Out of Love being the icing on top of an extremely emotionally layered cake of outstanding tastiness. We were gripped completely and emotionally invested from the first page 'till the last. Shedding so many tears, needing copious freezer time, and laughing out loud.

We wanted -no needed- this story to never end. Never. We finished Out of Love and wanted to start from the beginning again. We fell in love, deep deep love with Livy and with Wylder. Their story is compelling, dark, funny, sweet, hot! and so addictive. We felt like we were coming home amongst friends with Jackson and Jessica, needing more, wanting to catch up and spend time with them. We could never be done with this series. We love when our emotions are pulled through the wringer, we love when we have no idea where a story is going, we love uncovering a character; layer by layer. And we love when we laugh out loud and cry big fat ugly tears in the same breath.

TROUBLEMAKER by KAYLEY LORING

I can’t wait until my kid is old enough to actually tell me to fuck off, because that’s what his face is saying to me right now.’

Troublemaker by Kayley Loring was just what we needed. We just couldn’t stop laughing at the hilarious inner musings of both Emilia and Alex, as well as their brilliant banter and quick liners. And let’s not forget the sexual tension and connection which was on point! Kayley Loring nailed the romantic comedy and single dad aspect, so much so we are lining up the next one. Her sense of humour is completely in line with ours!

We seriously fell in love with the characters in Troublemaker, every single one had that special something we immediately connect with. Emilia was such a quirky and lovable heroine. She was adorable, nerdy, funny, sarcastic and surprising. We felt like she became a friend whilst reading. She’s certainly a match for the gorgeous, dry humoured, Alex Vega. Alex Vega….ALEX BLOODY VEGA!!!!! What a man, what a PERFECT man! Not only is he a great single dad and one of Hollywood’s hottest bachelors, he’s got a wicked sense of humour, he’s swoooooony and yeah…we immediately fell in love with him!!!

THE FIRST SCORE by AMIE KNIGHT

We loved this one! Check out our Review & Exclusive Excerpt

‘I hated how much he made me feel. And I loved it. I loved it more than anything.’

The First Score by Amie Knight was such an emotional and angsty read, we literally could not put it down. A unique take on a soulmate love story spanning years. Talk about slow-burn romance, this right here is the definition of it and it was deliciously agonising and left us emotionally frustrated, but in a really good way. Beautiful, heartbreaking, funny and just so agonisingly good! The First Score covers a multitude of serious issues as well as a delectable friends to lovers’ romance.

Oh, be still our beating hearts, because Oliver may be one of our favourite male characters we’ve encountered in a while. He was just everything.

BEACH READ by EMILY HENRY

5 incredible stars! Without question, one of our most FAVOURITE read this year!!

‘She was in pain. I knew that. But I was in pain too, so much of it that for once I couldn’t laugh or dance any measure of it away. I couldn’t even write myself a happy ending.’

Beach Read by Emily Henry without question one of our favourite books of 2020. The storyline is so much more than what the cover and synopsis implies. So much more. We’ll come back to the cover later. Beach Read had us sobbing, it had us questioning human relations. It had us compelled! The writing was outstanding. This is so much more than a romance. It is a plethora of stories entwined perfectly crafted and shaped into an all-encompassing story of life. Beach Read is also a truly wonderful love story which slowly builds across the chapters.

We literally couldn’t have loved this book any more than what we did. We loved the humorous banter, the romantic and sexual tension, the personal discoveries, the tragic heartbreak, the second chances at life and love, and the underlying message that if you find yourself stuck in life, look for an outside perspective. Whilst we only hear January’s POV, the superb way in which Beach Read was written ensured that we fully connected with Gus. We felt his pain, we cringed at his awkwardness and we felt his passion.

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?

DIRTY CHARMER by EMMA CHASE

“I’m leaving.”
“Funny. Typically the girls I kiss like to tell me when they’re coming.”

Dirty Charmer by Emma Chase landed on our kindles so we just had to get stuck in straight away as we couldn’t wait for Tommy Sullivan’s story. This bodyguard (check out the Royally Series) is a powerhouse with a dry and cheeky sense of humour -completely dead pan- which has had us in stitches. What we love about Tommy is that he takes one day at a time, enjoying his life, job, family and friends with an almost child-like approach, but at no time were we fooled into believing he is not ALL MAN where and when it counts! Tommy is so confident in who he is that it’s impossible to not fall in love with this cocky and endearing protector! We’re glad his mum didn’t drown him at birth as the medium advised hahaha!!!! When Tommy is hired to guard the quiet and aspiring heart surgeon who is the epitome of stiff upper lip he recognises her from a stint in hospital and what Tommy wants, Tommy gets. And Tommy wants Abby. This is a complete case of opposites attracts with an explosive chemistry and fierce passion.

STONE PRINCESS (Tin Gypsy #3) by DEVNEY PERRY

We are LOVING this series!

"I'm not perfect, Presley. I'm just a man, flawed like any other. The perfection is an illusion."

We are so completely invested in The Tin Gypsy series and after reading the last two books (Riven Knight and Stone Princess)back to back, we're now desperate for the release of Noble Prince in November! In Stone Princess Devney Perry beautifully combined elements we crave - Hollywood romance, small-town romance and biker romance. Whilst this biker series may not be the dark and edgy MC books we normally associate with this theme, the author delivers the warring biker 'feel' in the underlying presence of hostility between the now-defunct Tin Gypsy's and rival MC Club, the Arrowhead Warriors. Their rivalry and revenge simmer throughout the series, giving each book that suspenseful edge we devour, mixed with passion, banter heartfelt emotion.

We enjoyed this story so much! We swooned like crazy over Shaw Valance, and we giggled at his wicked sense of humour - his easy-going nature complimenting Presley's prickly personality perfectly. Oh did we swoon!

THE GUY IN THE MIDDLE (The Underdogs #3) by KATE STEWART

‘I’m a man standing in the wake of lost love, bitterness in my heart, and singed beyond anything I can control.’

Ahhh, Kate Stewart. The author who had us in a giggling fit one minute, fanning ourselves with our Kindle reading some super-hot sex, ripped out our hearts and stomped on them with some highly emotive scenes, and drove us to frustration with some back and forth, will they won’t they, could they can’t they, heavy-duty angst. If you’ve read The Guy in the Middle you know EXACTLY what we mean if you haven’t and you love a romance that tests you, then grab this book.

THE BROMANCE BOOK CLUB (Bromance Book Club Series #1) by LYSSA KAY ADAMS

'A lonely marriage is the worst kind of lonely there is.'

The first rule of Bromance book club…you guessed it; you don’t talk about the goings-on in the boys’ Bookclub outside the walls of the inner sanctum. It’s a secret place for men to read romance novels to better ‘understand’ their wives, their wants, their needs and to try and emotionally connect with their other halves when all seems lost. And Gavin Scott is most definitely lost.

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!
