MUCH ADO ABOUT YOU by SAMANTHA YOUNG

‘He looked at me like a guy who wanted everything. It was seductive, compelling, and despite all my concerns about how a relationship might derail me from working out my future plans, I couldn’t deny myself him anymore.’

Much Ado About You by Samantha Young is the most wonderful feel-good romance. It had us transported to a sleepy village on the English coast. We could smell the salty sea air, and the fish and chips dinners, whilst we read with a perma-smile on our faces. Really, it doesn’t get better than a bookworm heroine leaving her life in Chicago behind, flying cross the pond and renting a book shop, all the while falling in love with a bearded luscious farmer. No question about it, the picturesque and vividly written setting was a whole character just on its own.

Much Ado About You was just what we needed; a real comfort read indulgence. We didn’t just fall in love with Evie and Roane; we fell in love with the village, the people living there and the beautiful setting. We felt like we knew everyone who lived there and had our own bar stool in The Anchor pub, ordering ‘our usual’ and settling in for the evening for the daily craic. We really do hope there’s more to come from the good people of Alnster!

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!!!

WRECKED PALACE (Wrecked #3) by CATHERINE COWLES

‘We barely knew each other; had only kissed. Yet somehow, it felt as if I’d known Griffin for a lifetime. That he could see inside every nook and cranny of my soul. And with that knowledge and vision came the potential for devastating hurt….’

Wrecked Palace is a story of betrayal, loss, love and family. With  Griffin Lockwood, Caelyn O’Connor and the ‘tiny terrors’ completely stealing our hearts. This really was a story of sacrifice and immeasurable love. The children Will, Mia and Ava entertained us and seized our heart - Griffin and Caelyn captivated us with their selflessness and giving souls and their moving love story.

Watching the trust, friendship and relationship develop between Griffin, who had lost everything when his family died under tragic circumstances when he was very young develop was written with so much care and devotion to the characters, we couldn’t help but fall in love and become invested in their story. At times on the edge of our seat, other times with tears in our eyes and an ache in our hearts, we were equally swooning and smiling.

FASHION JUNGLE by KATHY IRELAND & RACHEL VAN DYKEN

“There is no in between. That’s not life, and that’s not how people should love, with only part of their souls or just when it’s easy and pretty. Love is ugly, it’s painful, it’s full of sorrow, long days, terror filled nights. Love asks for everything and nothing all at once. I love the only way a person should love. With every part of me that’s tethered to this universe”

It’s a jungle out there! Wow! Just Wow! What a uniquely, thrilling, lusciously dramatic, romantic and suspenseful read! Based on true stories and events, we felt like voyeurs, enjoying a 'behind the scenes' look into the mired world of the fashion industry, through the eyes of three very different, formidable yet achingly vulnerable best friends. With twenty years in the fashion industry, Zoe, Everlee and Brittany, have secrets…many, many secrets and we were dying to hear all of them. Starting with the death of their best friend Danica.

The gripping synopsis gives you all you need to know about this story and its various players and it's a story that's best enjoyed completely spoiler free. As we closed the last page, we felt as though we knew each of the characters intimately, experiencing the myriad of emotions felt by the characters, desperate to uncover their pasts and devour the secrets they slowly shared with us.

BOSS MAN BRIDEGROOM by MEGHAN QUINN

Swoony and hilarious! This book was 5 Star GOLD!

 ‘That man, the considerate thoughtful man, is far too dangerous for my heart.’

Boss Man Bridegroom was everything we were hoping for and more. We have been so intrigued by Rath since meeting him in The Secret to Dating Your Best Friend's Sister where we cried tears from laughing at his bromance with Bram Scott. This was followed by Diary of a Bad Boy where we fell even more in love with the enigmatic Rath and once again cried laughing from the hilarious carry-ons of Bram, Rath and Roark. This series is without question our favourite by Meghan Quinn. This series is GOLD!

This series can be read as standalone's, however, once again we urge you to pick all three books up because Meghan Quinn has proved once again that she really is the queen of romantic –HOT- comedy. Why do we love her romcom’s so much? Well, because this Author has no filter, there’s funny and then there’s ‘Meghan Quinn funny’. Meghan Quinn is an author who writes natural flawless humour with no social modesty. Just the way we love it! This is a series we can re-read over and over because we fell in love with every single character and their hilarious shenanigans. This series is a must-read and once you meet these characters you’ll know why!

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.
