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.

YOU DESERVE EACH OTHER by SARAH HOGLE

We LOVED this one!

“Relearning you has been the best thing that's ever happened to me.”

 What a fantastic read with an interesting twist on the enemies to lovers’ trope! With Naomi and Nicholas hellbent on antagonising one another at every opportunity, it’s more a lovers to enemies to lovers’ theme and we lapped up all the funny, crazy, heartbreaking and beautifully emotional moments!

A little reminiscent War of the Roses/Mr and Mrs Smith (though without the violence!), we were completely dazzled by, and invested in the characters, the romance and the eventual outcome of Naomi and Nicholas’s story. Not to mention swooning crazily over Nicholas. This guy… we loved him! If you love the enemies to lover’s trope, you need to grab this book!

SOUTHERN CHANCE (The Southern Series Book 1) by NATASHA MADISON

See our Excerpt and Review for Southern Chance by Natasha Madison!

“Tomorrow,” I say softly, my eyes getting heavy. “Tomorrow I’ll work on not loving him.”

Southern Chance is a warm-hearted second chance, young lovers, small-town romance and our first ever read by Natasha Madison. It was a sweet and swoony -easy to read- romance centred on buried secrets. We loved experiencing the Southern charm of this story and look forward to meeting more characters when their books release in later months.

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.

RISING WEST (A Turner Artist Rocker Novel #1) by ALYSON SANTOS

Review and Exclusive Excerpt! We LOVED this book!

‘Did I see him first? The way he breathed music and bled poetry from a stag the never saw him coming.’

Alyson Santos mirrors our souls when it comes to capturing the way we feel about music in Rising West, the first book in her new Turner Artist Rocker series. Based around the rock star signings of Turner Artist Management company, we meet their latest find in the reclusive and very sensitive, Mason West. Not only does Alyson Santos capture the heart of the music, but she also captures the emotion, the turmoil, the excitement and the technical side of the music industry and we were transfixed by Masons grasp at fame from the very first page!

This author delivers her music knowledge in a somewhat poetic, almost hypnotic prose. It’s beautiful and renders the heart at one with the sad and lonely Mason. This man truly does have that sensitive artist vibe and his story tore at the very fabric of our hearts.

THE TWO LIVES OF LYDIA BIRD by JOSIE SILVER

‘That’s the deal we make when we love someone, isn’t it? Somewhere along the path, one person is always going to have to find a way to carry on without the other.’

Anyone who has experienced a loss will connect to Lydia’s story and share in her desperation to keep the memory alive of her first and only love, Freddie Hunter, a man who entered her life in a whirlwind when they were only 14.  A love that began at innocent and clumsy adolescence to present time when they’re on the cusp of marriage, ready to spend the rest of their lives together, sharing a true and unwavering love; when it’s all cruelly ripped away.

Josie Silver is such a gifted and beautiful storyteller, and her way of infusing so much feeling into her stories have thus far, held us captivated as we once again fell under her talented spell. The Two Lives of Lydia Bird is a powerfully reflective story and it’s one that will make you smile, ache, laugh and cry as you champion for Lydia to find the will to find herself in the face of crippling grief.

RELEASE by ALY MARTINEZ

‘To explain how I fell in love with Thea Hull, I’d need to go back to the beginning. Fair warning, this is not a story of hearts, flowers, and romance. That would call come later. But in the beginning, my love for Thea was born out of death, broken hearts, and desperation.’

Release by Aly Martinez is an achingly beautiful and tragic love story about two young lovers whose lives would be forever altered in one tragic night. It is an emotional standalone that tells a story of childhood friends to lovers, sacrifice and second chances.
