Our thoughts...

This is a newish to me author and I am loving her work. I have started listening to all her books on audible and can’t get enough. I knew I needed this book when I saw it was coming out. Into the Tide was such a good read and great way to start a new series. The more books I read by this author the more I like her. She is quickly becoming one of my favorites.

Release Blitz: Into the Tide by Laura Pavlov

She's my best friend's little sister. Completely off-limits. But every man has his breaking point.

Into the Tide by Laura Pavlov is now live! 

Lila James is my best friend's little sister and I've always looked out for her.
She's five years younger than me, and when she left for college, she was just a kid.
But now she's home for the summer--and she's definitely not a kid anymore.
She's beautiful and smart and everything I didn't know I needed.
Dark eyes. Long wavy hair. And legs that are meant to be wrapped around me.
I'm the guy who likes to have a good time.
Keep things light.
When her brother asks me to hire her at my restaurant, it's a no-brainer.
There isn't anything I wouldn't do for her.
Until she asks me for one more favor.
She wants me to be her first.
Take her V-card.
Go where no man has gone before.
Her words, not mine.
And damn if I don't want to go there more than I've ever wanted anything.
She's only here for the summer, and she says it will be our secret.
It's temporary.
We'll go back to being just friends at the end of summer.
She promises that she won't fall for me.
She knows better.
But Lila isn't the one I'm worried about.

Our thoughts...

When I went into this book I had no idea it was a series but I had no problem reading this book. I want to go back and read all the other books in this series. I laughed and smiled so much while reading this book. Those are always the best kind of books and they always keep me entertained and invested in the story. Lou and Ivy’s story was so fun and very fast paced.

Our thoughts...

A new Penelope Ward book, yes please! This is one of my favorite authors and she never disappoints. When you read one of her books you are going to get emotion, a great story and fall in love with her characters. It only took a few pages to love these characters as well.

The slow burn between Archie and Noelle had me glued to my kindle. Their story  is unique and heartbreaking at times. I loved the past to present and getting to see their relationship grow from the very beginning. 

Must Read!

Our thoughts...

A great start to a new series by one of my favorite authors. There is nothing like a single dad raising his kids. Crew is a police officer in Chicago. When things turn out differently than he planned he takes his twin daughters to a small town he would visit as a kid. In Redemption Falls in the house he’s staying at the lady renting the house on the property he is drawn to. These both have things they are trying to get through. Tennyson she is carrying lots of secrets and has a hard time letting people close. Will these two be able to get past their struggles and make a go of things?

I adored Crew’s twin daughters Paige and Addy,  they were so cute and just added more to the story. I loved everything about this book and can’t wait for the next book in The Redemption series. Must read!

Release Blitz: Matchmaking a Roommate by Angela Casella & Denise Grover Swank

Matchmaking a Roommate by Denise Grover Swank & Angela Casella is now live! 

He's her next makeover project. She's his next mistake.

I'm Ivy Anders, popular romance novelist and small-town success story. Or so they say. I tell myself I'm only back in my hometown because my father had a heart attack, but that's not the full story.

I can't go home. And the longer I stay, the less I want to. I'm drawn in by my part-time job at Ziggy brewery, which I took to research for my next book, and by the mystery of Lou, my father's stuffy lodger, a temporary transplant from New York.

Normally, I wouldn't look twice at someone like Lou. He's a rules guy, and I've never met a rule I didn't want to break just for the fun of it. But it's obvious he needs an intervention to avoid becoming an old man at thirty-four, and I am going to make that happen.

I came to Highland Hills to hide. It's not every day a man loses his professional integrity, his fiancée, and his pet fish all in the same week.

The last thing I want is for smoking hot Ivy Anders to get it into her head that I should be her project. But she has, and it's hard as hell to say no to her. Believe me, I've tried.

The more time we spend together, the more I realize that I have another problem on my hands: Ivy's everything I'm not—young and wild and free—and she's all I can think about.
