Garnet Flats by Devney Perry ~ New Release & Review


Garnet Flats by Devney Perry is now live!


Talia Eden loved Foster Madden for one year, two months and eleven days. It was on day 438 that her love died. The day he chose to marry her best friend. The day she vowed never to think of Foster again.

Until years later when he has the audacity to show up in her small hometown of Quincy, begging for her help.

The ink on his divorce papers is barely dry, yet he comes armed with apologies and promises. She knows it's all a ploy. Foster is the king of games and secrets. But he's got delusions the size of Montana if he thinks she'll help him train for a world championship fight.

Except Talia has forgotten exactly what made Foster famous. The man has dedicated his life to victory. He's steadfast. He's determined. And he won't stop fighting until he's won her heart.

Review Copy Provided by Author

We are back to Quincy with the Eden family, this time with sister Talia. Talia is a doctor in her hometown and life is going according to plan when her ex boyfriend shows up out of the blue 7 years later…. Foster shows up with baggage and the story that unfolds is layered, sweet, and just a little spicy.

I found myself liking both Talia and Foster - and rooting for Foster to make things right for them both. Ms Perry does an excellent job of blending the second chance romantic story with that of the larger Eden family and Talia’s struggles with professional acceptance.

The plot here has a lot going on - I’m not going to go into detail because you need to experience this book for yourself, but all of the various pieces complement each other well. Talia has the larger emotional journey here, and watching her break through her walls is touching.

Garnet Flats is very much a stand alone read. Talia’s sibling play key secondary roles, so there are opportunities to see what previous feature couples are up to now as well as hints for future books, but those items don’t interfere with Talia and Foster’s story.

Give Me Love ~ Corinne Michaels ~ Cover Reveal

Corinne Michaels has revealed the cover for Give Me Love!

Releasing: September 27, 2022

Cover Design: Sommer Stein, Perfect Pear Creative

Photographer: Nichole Ashley Photography

New York Times bestselling author Corinne Michaels brings the second book in the Rose Canyon series with this small-town, second chance romance.

I am in the most inconvenient marriage of convenience ever.
What started out as two friends who wanted to make their military lives easier, turned into a mess.
Why? Because I stupidly fell in love with my husband.

In an attempt to remedy my mistake, I severed all ties and put my life as a combat medic and Emmett Maxwell behind me. I've lost too many people to open myself up to love.

Now I'm working as a private investigator, and fate has stepped in, forcing our paths to intersect again when I'm looking into the disappearance of a missing girl with ties to Emmett's hometown. A case I fear puts his life in danger.

He gives me one week to prove my suspicions and then I need to sign the divorce papers and leave. The problem with that? The moment I see Emmett again, I realize how foolish it was to leave him, to think I could ever stop loving him.

When the case threatens not only my life but also his, I'm faced with my worst fear. How many times can a heart break before it shatters beyond repair?

Run For Your Honey by Staci Hart ~ New Release & Review

Twelve years ago, my first and only love left town and never came back.

How dare he show up now, looking like that.

And he’s running against me for mayor.

It’s unfair, him standing there, too tall and handsome for his own good. It’s audacious that his clothes accentuate every lean, strong curve of his body. It’s universal BS that his smile makes my heart flipflop, and it’s patently un-freaking-believable that my body would betray me when he turns that gorgeous smile on me.

I’ll do whatever it takes to win, and he knows it.

But when he kisses me, all bets are off.

If I win, he leaves.

If he wins, I lose.

And either way, he breaks my heart.

Elizabeth's Review

3.5 stars - Worth a Reader's Time

Review Copy Provided by Author

We have followed the Blum sisters as they fight to save their town and end up falling in love. One by one, they’ve fought the “curse” and now it’s Poppy’s turn - or is it?

Poppy’s romantic interest/nemesis is her high school sweetheart, Duke. These two have a lot of history and are in an adversarial contest for Mayor. Watching them maneuver through the race and their interactions with each other is a fraught experience that keeps you on your toes. I appreciated that Ms Hart allowed them to explore their feelings, but also didn’t make it easy for them to figure out their way forward.

Real life is messy and these messy moments were excellent opportunities for Poppy and Duke to see what mattered to them and decide what direction they needed to go. Add in a great secondary cast and this is a story that packed a bit of a punch. There are a couple of smaller characters here that I am curious about, I would love to see if Wyatt and Evan get stories at some point!

These stories are sequential, so the town’s backstory appears in Jo and Daisy’s stories. That information influences what happens in Run For Your Honey (so, it’s best to read the series in order - that’s the main reason this is a 3.5 star read vs a full 4.)

“I need you to marry me.”

Jane Fox

My boss cannot be serious. The ridiculously handsome man I hate-to-crush on has just proposed I pretend to be his wife for a funeral. A funeral! Only, when he dangles a much-coveted position in exchange for my time, I can’t refuse. Who am I kidding, though? I seem to have a habit of not saying no to Mr. Wright.

Machlan Wright

Things spiral out of control the second we reach my small town. A place I swore I’d never return has suddenly become my inheritance. As in, I’ve inherited an entire town! Only, there’s one condition: my hot, top executive pretending to be my wife must marry me for real. What could possibly go wrong? <insert sarcasm>


Join Jane and Mach as they road trip to a lovely mountain town where memories haunt and relationships build. And it takes (the restoration of) a village for this marriage of convenience to question the past and change the future.

L.B. Dunbar brings you a second standalone in Road Trips & Romance. 

**Note, the Fox sisters are siblings of Garrett Fox from Wine&Dine, an original #sexysilverfox.

Releasing: December 27, 2022

Cover Design: Hang Le Designs

Lee f’ing Burrows

The Kingsmen’s star quarterback.

Legendary throwing arm.

Six-pack abs.

Kissable lips.

Oh, but don’t forget, he’s also a lying, heartless egomaniac who broke my heart in college.

It took me years to build myself back up after his deceit, and now I have the dream opportunity to prove myself working as a sports therapist for a professional team.

The hurdle? Or mountain to be more accurate…

The job is with the San Francisco Kingsmen.

Back when I was a naïve college girl, I felt lucky that he even noticed me. Now eight years later, he’d be lucky if I gave him the time of day.

Which I won’t. Not ever.

Some people don’t deserve a second chance and Lee Burrows is one of them.

Now if someone could only tell him that because he’s hell-bent on scoring the winning touchdown and won’t accept that it’s game over for us.

Review Round Up ~ July 14

TBR Reads:   

My rating: 4 of 5 stars - Would Recommend to a friend

Review copy purchased for "Free"

This is a book I picked up when it was free and it’s been lingering in my TBR for a while…. What in the heck took me so long?
When we meet Chase and Maddie they are 6 months post break up. She twists herself up to please people and he’s unapologetic about his less than stellar attitude. Ms Shen takes them on a bit of a twisting and turning ride where both get to evolve into better versions of themselves. I appreciated the fact that both Maddie and Chase grew during the story and that they helped each other get there, even if it wasn’t always willingly.
The Devil Wears Black is an entertaining enemies to lovers read with dynamic characters and a layered story that absolutely pulled me in.


My rating: 3 of 5 stars - Average Read

Review Copy was purchased for Free

This book has been on my TBR for a while and I picked it up randomly as I try to clear things out a bit.
I went in a bit blind.

Schooled did it’s job as it is an entertaining read, but I don’t think I am necessarily the target audience.
At 20 and 21, Lex and Dylan had a lot of unnecessary drama and some of the situations they are in just don’t seem realistic - especially after living through business school myself.

This is a young adult read for a young adult audience.


My rating: 3 of 5 stars - Average Read

Review Copy Received for free/gift

This is an entertaining and quick read. I found myself enjoying Lorali and Ian even if their character development was fairly surface level.
The plot was also a bit simplistic and driven by the main characters physical relationship. If you are looking for light/escape read this would fit the bill.

***As I write this review, I feel the need to point out that this book was published in 2015 and I read it in 2022… I’m sure that as much as I have evolved as a reader over the last seven years, I am sure the author has also matured and honed their craft.

Along Came You by Claudia Y. Burgoa ~ New Release & Review

Release Date: July 12

From USA TODAY BESTSELLING AUTHOR Claudia Burgoa comes this billionaire workplace accidental pregnancy romance that’ll leave readers laughing and swooning!

What happens when you break the cardinal rule?

I’m good at following rules.

Like, don’t sleep with your hot employees. That’s a good rule.

At least I was until that night. I blame the champagne and the tuxedo he wore.

There are several reasons why I shouldn’t be attracted to Elliot McPhee.

1.     He’s emotionally unavailable.

2.     He’s in his mid-forties—too old for me.

3.     He’s my employee.

4.     He’s jaded after a disastrous divorce.

5.     He’s leaving soon.

But he has gray eyes, and a deep velvety voice…did I mention he looks like Joshua Jackson?

I can’t resist.

It’s just a one-night stand before he leaves.

Except, things get complicated.

We’re talking two bright pink lines complicated.

Did I mention he has no desire to commit?

So, we agree not to try.

Except, we can’t keep our hands off each other.

Then I find out he’s not who I thought.

He’s so wrong for me. So why do I still want to create a family with him?

Along Came You is a forbidden age gap romance involving a secret billionaire and an accidental baby. Get ready to laugh, swoon, and be seduced by sexy billionaires willing to please their women!

Elizabeth's Review

Almost 3.5 stars - Better than an Average Read

Review Copy Provided by Author

I feel this review needs a giant disclaimer….
Ms Burgoa is an author whose work I normally love and from the blurb, I was super excited about this book. Unfortunately, for Along Came You, one of the things I normally enjoy about Ms Burgoa’s work caused me to actually be frustrated and confused while reading.

If you follow Ms Burgoa, you know that her work tends to center around large families, so any given work has a large secondary cast. These families sometimes also drift into other series as friends of main/secondary cast. For both Fern and Elliott, I consistently felt like I was missing something related to their backstories. There were hints of things, names mentioned that seemed to lurk just a little - all to create a sense of being poked at by a feeling of “you should know this, why don’t you?”

As the third book in the Paradise Bay series (I confess I have not read the first two) the slow burn of Fern and Elliot’s story seemed to be more about positioning of other characters to either update previous stories or preparation for future launches. Fern and Elliot’s actual real story didn’t take off until the 50% mark of the book. I loved the second half of the book and wish that the story there had take up a little bit more real estate within the larger story.

I feel like this review has been a bit of a Debbie downer and that’s not my intention at all - I think this is a book that really needs to be read in order of it’s series. (And maybe even in order of Ms Burgoa’s back list) For the reader that has 100% of the context, this would be an amazing/emotional read. For me- a bit more of a sporadic reader, missing that context made it more difficult to engage because I kept wondering about the things I was missing.

Beyond My Darkness by R.C. Boldt ~ New Release and Review


If you listen, the dead will talk.


Beyond My Darkness by RC Boldt is now live!


USA Today bestselling author RC Boldt delivers a seductively unique romantic suspense with a paranormal twist in Beyond My Darkness...

Twelve years ago, I fled, vowing to never again use my power. But everything changes when I break that vow and bring two bodies back to life in the morgue.

It sends me spinning directly into his orbit.

Arrogant. Menacing. Enigmatic. That's Bronson Cortez, the notoriously violent gang leader who remains elusive to authorities.

He breaks the law at every turn and answers to no one. But when he offers me a glimpse of what lies beneath that iron-clad exterior, I realize there's more to him than meets the eye.

The man who fiercely guards his heart somehow manages to claim mine.

But he doesn't know the truth about me.

I wonder if he could be the first to accept me for who I am—what I am.

I wonder if he'll be the first to see beyond my darkness.

Elizabeth's Review

4.5 stars for a unique, hard to put down read

Review Copy Provided by Author

Ms Boldt delivers another unexpected set of twists and turns with Beyond my Darkness. Georgia Danvers and Bronson Cortez are both complex and layered characters that at first glance shouldn’t have anything to do with each other. Until fate decides to mix things up…. And to avoid spoilers, that’s as far as I am going with that!

As far as the characters go, I found myself really liking both Georgia and Bronson. Her strength (which is revealed via flashbacks) and sass made her someone that I’d be glad to have as a friend. He is very rough around the edges and not the classic hero, but he has his own sense of ethics that make him someone to that I could respect and root for a little bit too.

The story here is layered. There is a romance, competing affections, and mystery. The different pieces are interwoven together well, so well that they definitely feed off of each other. The secondary cast here is small, but they pack a wallop. There are several I am curious and hope to eventually know more about

I found it hard to put this book down and it helps cement Ms Boldt as a master of romantic suspense!
