REINVENTING CATO (Unfinished Business #3) by BARBARA ELSBORG

‘Vigge wrapped his arms around him. Cato clung to him so hard that Vigge’s heart felt as if it were trying to get out of his chest and climb into Cato’s to give it a hug.’

Reinventing Cato by Barbara Elsborg can be read as a standalone in a series, however, we rate every single book so highly we would recommend reading to get the full experience of the characters that pop up in every book. This Author once again managed to pair dramatic suspense with sarcasm and humour and tragedy with inspirational love. The way in which Barbara Elsborg blends fiction with realism is spot on and addictive. And on a side note, her intense need and craving for facts, be they relevant or obscure, well where is she when we need her for our online pub quiz? She’d be our ‘phone a friend’! We always know what to expect from this Author, and she never lets us down. The writing is flawless, the humour timeless and the storyline compelling. Her characters never fail to worm their way into our hearts, only to stay and find a forever home.

WHEN THE STORM BREAKS (Lost Stars #2) by EMERY ROSE

‘That night I fell a little bit harder for the man who fixed broken horses and for the boy who had been forced to see the ugly side of life too young.’

We were intrigued by Brody in When the Stars Fall (Lost Stars #1) and couldn't wait to dig a little deeper into his past, and of course, spend some time with Brody and his sweet little boy Noah. What a wonderful relationship these two had. We knew it would take a tenacious woman to snag this gorgeous gruff cowboy and gain his hard-earned trust, and once again, this author didn't let us down.

We’re officially addicted and hope more characters get to tell their story! We know we’ll be there for every single one of them! Who will be next we wonder? We want to hear them all! If you love angst, heat, passion, rock stars, cowboys and romance, a small-town vibe, and a loveable little boy, be sure to add this book to your TBR’s!

A LONG WAY BACK (Unfinished Business #2) by BARBARA ELSBORG

5 resounding stars!!!

‘Happiness was being in each other’s arms. Happiness was a hand held, a kiss given, a smile shared, a joke told.’

Barbara Elsborg is without question our -go-to Author- when we are in the mood for an MM romance, not only is she a magnificent and unique storyteller, her passion, vivid imagery, and the way she makes us truly feel every emotion, is second to none. A Long Way Back is a testament to this and once again she wowed us! To be able to weave humour into a devastating storyline and create characters with such depth that we feel a part of them, is utterly astounding.

We can sit here for hours and wax lyrical on why and how much we love Barbara Elsborg’s writing. She makes us laugh, she makes us cry and she has us completely compelled every single time we pick up a new book by her. When we say that there really isn’t many Authors like her for making us feel so emotionally invested in mm romance, it’s because of how much we love and stand by her work.

STILL STANDING (Wild West Series MC #1) by KRISTEN ASHLEY

“Let me deal with the cloud. You need to know, I’ll tell you. Until then, darlin’, my meaning in life is, you live in the sunshine.”

This wild ride was packed with drama and heat. It had us chuckling out loud and Buck had us swooning all over the pages. Kristen Ashley has a knack for writing those yummy-licious and manly, but unapologetic heroes, the men with a capital M in every way that counts. West “Buck” Hardy, president of the Aces High MC certainly makes no excuses for who he is and how he goes about taking what he wants. As always the brotherhood and loyalty shone brightly as did the protection and the fierce way these bikers love. This series is EXCITING and we can’t wait for more, and to all of you who re-read KA of old as much as we do. you will fall in luuuurveeeee!!!

MORENO’S: (Moreno Brothers) MORENO BROTHERS SEQUEL by ELIZABETH REYES

‘Not only was he Isa’s first choice – he was her only choice.’

Well, what can we say other than oh wow what a trip down memory lane! We fell in utter love with the Moreno brothers back in 2011 and remember this series with such love so it’s no surprise that when Elizabeth Reyes released Isabella and Alejandro’s story, which is where it all began, we were excited to revisit this memorable series and family.

From the onset, we knew that theirs was a soulmate romance that withstood the test of time and circumstance. They had to overcome so much in order to be together and live safely in the arms of one another, as they had wished for since childhood. Only a love of the truest, persevering and strongest form can withstand the test of time and separation.

THE REVENGE PACT (Kings of Football #1) by ILSA MADDEN-MILLS

“Life doesn’t give out a lot of moments like this. Just kiss me. Just kiss me or walk away.”

We will follow the gorgeous River Tate’s lead and tell you three things about this book. 1) It’s a beautiful slow burn antagonist to friends to lovers’ romance. 2) You’ll fall head over heels for the insanely wonderful, River Tate, and 3) You’ll love unravelling the reasons behind the abysmal season of the Braxton College Football team whilst becoming swept up in the sweetness, chemistry and emotion of The Revenge Pact.

THE PEARL by TIFFANY REISZ

“You can try to hate me, hate us, all you want, but I know the truth. You hate yourself.”

The Pearl by Tiffany Reisz is the third book in The Godwicks series, which is highly erotic, highly mystical, and artistically evocative. Whilst this book is part of a series it can absolutely be read as a standalone, however, every single book in this series has been superbly fabulous, so we highly recommend reading The Red and The Rose as well! It is no secret that Tiffany Reisz is one of our all-time favourite Authors. There really is something about her flawless writing, her sense of humour and quick liners. The banter, creativity and complex layered characters are second to none. Her books are compelling.

WHEN THE STARS FALL (Lost Stars #1) by EMERY ROSE

5 heartfelt, angsty and emotional stars. WHAT A BOOK!!! You really MUST 1Click this one!!

“What happens when the stars fall, Jude?”
“I’ll put them back in the sky for you…”

Honestly, we cannot express how much we loved When the Stars Fall by Emery Rose. It felt tremendously complete if that makes any sense. A love so pure from childhood, a soul mate love that withstands everything life can possibly throw at it. It’s a sign of a magnificent Author when you openly grieve over such a fierce love lost and feel emotionally exhausted as she takes you on a journey of healing. Emery Rose is this Author and we cannot recommend this wonderful story highly enough to all our fellow romance readers who love having their hearts broken and lovingly stitched back together again!

Emery Rose is a wonderful storyteller, the writing was flawless and the vivid imagery intense and passionate. The feelings we got from reading When the Stars Fall reminded us of the books we read and fell in love with back in the day which spurred us on to start blogging just so we could shout from the rooftops: READ THIS BOOK!

DEFYING GRAVITY (Shattered Cove Series #3) by A.M. KUSI

‘Maybe they were both broken. But just maybe their shattered pieces could come together and make something whole.’

A.M. Kusi managed to tell a sensitive and difficult story without demonising or generalising, instead, relying on our bonds with the characters to make their point, which they did beautifully. This is a story that will make you ache; it will break your heart and heal your heart and hopefully, it will make you think and more importantly, make you care.

This love story was a slow burn, emotional and complicated, but it was also relevant and thought-provoking. Beautiful, ugly, honest, and raw, which can be read as a standalone.

MUSES & MELODIES (Hush Note #3) by REBECCA YARROS

What a series! What a finale! Standing ovation!

‘Loving him was a force so strong there was nothing I could do to protect myself.’

Heartache, emotion, passion, angst, Rock star swagger and some serious swoon. These are just some of the things Rebecca Yarros served up in Muses & Melodies, and boy didn’t we just eat it up! Nixon certainly gave us some heart stopping moments. His pain was a raw, palpable beast and we felt every single piece of it. It was as though we were standing on the precipice with Nixon, hearts braced in nervous anticipation as we wondered if he would once again slide into oblivion. If only Nixon would believe the love that surrounded him from his band mates. This complicated man stole our hearts completely!

Rebecca Yarros beautifully blended forbidden romance, small town, rock star and angst into an edgy slow burn romance with some hate to love in the mix. With these elements, and the superb emotionally raw prose of this author it was bound to be a hit!
