Before This Ends by Aurora Rose Reynolds ~ New Release & Review



Blurb:

Miles Thatcher and I would not have gotten together if my life had gone according to plan.

Recently single with her whole life up in the air, Emma Abate knows that getting into any kind of relationship, is a bad idea. Especially when the man she finds herself drawn to is Miles Thatcher, a single father, and a man that seems determined to break down every barricade she places between them.

Could this be real?

Miles doesn’t do complicated. But it’s difficult to remember all the reasons why Emma is supposed to be off limits when she begins to fill a void in his and his daughters' life, a void that he never realized was there, until her.

Before this ends will Miles and Emma realize they have something worth fighting for? Or will his job as a detective, the murder of two young women, and Emma’s past get the best of them before they ever get the chance?

Life is never simple, and neither is love.

Elizabeth's Review


My rating: 4 of 5 stars - Worth A Reader's Time

Review Copy Provided by Author


In Before This Ends, we meet Miles and Emma. Both are characters that we have met before in book 1 of the series, but this is a complete stand-alone.

When we start to get to know Emma, her life is being turned upside down. It's one of those changes that is painful at the time but pushes you in the right direction for your life. I appreciated getting to know her and seeing how her friendship with Miles grew organically through her friend Miranda and her boyfriend (who happens to be Mile's brother). Miles is also a character that is easy to like. He's a great dad, a good brother, and overall decent guy. Seeing him quietly do the things that Emma had never seen from a romantic partner just cemented him being the right person for her.

Ms Reynolds does an excellent job of weaving these two together. The potential conflicts are organic to the story. We see past traumas try to wreak havoc, slightly jealous exes, and slight differences in timing, but we also see our couple work through those things in healthy ways that are relationship goals.

As this is book 2 in the series, I will say that reading both books in order will make this one a bit richer, but it is unnecessary. There is some backstory in Tucker and Miranda's book that carries over here, but there is plenty of that information is here too! I hope we get to see Dayton's story soon!

When Lies Unfold ~ R C Boldt ~ Cover Reveal

 


RC Boldt has revealed the gorgeous cover for When Lies Unfold!


Releasing: May 23, 2024

Cover Design: Hang Le


USA Today bestselling author RC Boldt delivers a seductive new romantic suspense filled with twists in WHEN LIES UNFOLD...

The moment I witness a murder, my quiet, careful existence goes up in smoke. I'm thrust into the world of Santiago Hern├índez, Central America’s most ruthless cartel leader.

In exchange for my life, I’m placed under his watchful eye. Day in and day out, he waits for me to betray my promise of silence.

The longer I stay in his world, the deeper I fall for the glimpses of the man beneath that handsome yet cunning exterior. The man whose possessive touch ignites a long-lost part of me.

But I should know better than to open my heart to a cold-blooded criminal with a laundry list of deadly sins and secrets. Especially when he has no idea who I really am.

Because when the lies unfold, he’ll discover I have a list of sins and secrets of my own.

This Much is True ~ Adriana Locke ~ New Release & Review

 


When celebrity Laina Kelley bolted from her small hometown church on her wedding day, she ran to the first place that came to mind—to the home of the local farrier, a gorgeous playboy who just so happens to be her first love ... and biggest frenemy. 


This Much Is True by Adriana Locke is now live! 


USA Today bestselling author Adriana Locke delivers a new “sweet and spicy!” standalone romance about a runaway bride who finds herself in the arms, and horse barn, of her deliciously handsome frenemy—who just so happens to be her first love.


This isn’t your average romance. It begins with me in a wedding dress, just not at an altar …


I never expected to be a runaway bride. I also never thought I’d end up on my ex’s doorstep to flee from said wedding. Now that I’m here, it’s easy to find the key in an old boot by the door and let myself inside. It’s not breaking and entering if I have a key, right?


It’s safe to say that Luke Marshall didn’t expect to find me on his couch in my wedding dress, my veil over my face in tears. He has no choice but to listen to my panic-induced plea for salvation. It’s only a matter of time before the tabloids get wind of my disappearing act, and my life is over.


Luke takes pity on me and says I can stay… on one condition.


I can’t sing for my supper—I have to earn it. I have to work in the barn alongside him, up to my elbows in horse manure. Oh—and because there’s only one bed, I get the couch.


This works … in theory. However, when sparks start flying, and the small-town farrier asks me to stay, I’ll have to decide between my life as a pop star or a second chance with my first love.

This Much Is True (Marshall Family, #2)Elizabeth's Review

My rating: 4 of 5 stars - Worth a Reader's Time


Review Copy Provided by Author


The Marshall family is back! This time we get to spend time with middle sibling Luke as the love of his life, Laina, comes back into the picture in a very unexpected way.

Laina comes bearing emotional scars and baggage that she didn’t have when they knew each other before and there are definitely pieces of their history that we are missing when they first reconnect, but their magic radiates. I appreciated the fact that Luke seemed to just know what Laina needed when she first arrived and gave her the space to figure out her life.

The past rears its head and creates tension, but nudged our couple out of limbo and into making decisions that were coming their way no matter what.

It was fun to get more glimpses of Luke’s siblings and I hope they have stories coming soon. Loyal Locke fans will also see a couple of cameos from previous series!

Review Round Up ~ March 15




New(er) Releases:


My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Review Copy Provided by Author

Almost Romantic = definitely sweet with a strong hint of spice!

Elodie and Gage are previous secondary characters that fans of Ms Blakely will recognize and instantly fall in love with! The meet-cute is just that and I loved the crazy, impulsive events that continued to bring them together.

Written with likable characters and slightly fantastical scenarios, this is a great escape read. The secondary cast is fun and there are a few familiar faces, but no spoilers for other books. My only regret here is that I didn’t have time to snuggle up and read more of the book in one sitting.

Review Copy Provided by Author

This this was a book that I’ve seen mentioned for a while by an author that I routinely enjoy the timing was just not right for me to read it until recently. What was I waiting for?
Thea and Kade end up in the middle of nowhere for the PR stunt wedding of their siblings. This is an interesting case of things not always being what they seem and boy oh boy what happens next…

I won’t go into too much detail, but this is a classic read by Ms Flynn. She creates entertaining situations that are multi layered and gives her characters opportunities to figure things out. Thea and Kade are both realistic people with relatable issues and insecurities that color how they approach of events around them. I appreciated watching them grow as individuals while also creating an unexpected friendship with the potential for more.

The secondary cast here is small, primarily the siblings, headed for wedded bliss and parental figures. The dynamics between Thea, Kade, and the secondary group colored both their reactions to things and helped guide them to resolutions. This is a fun read that had a surprisingly emotional undercurrent and has been excited for the next book in the series.

A Little Naughty ~ Tia Louise ~ New Release & Review

 


A Little Naughty by Tia Louise is now live!


 


I wasn’t planning to propose to Raif Jones, the bad boy from the wrong side of town.

The one with the tattooed muscles, naughty blue eyes, and dimpled, James-Dean grin.


It all started with a series of bad decisions. 

First was flirting with a dangerous criminal to rescue a little girl I didn’t even know.

Second was throwing a massive, masked gala in my small-town hideout (complete with drag queens) and not expecting to draw attention… 


Then Raif rode in on a motorcycle and melted my undies (and my heart), saying he wouldn’t let anybody hurt me. 

Of course, I asked him to marry me.

Imagine my surprise when he said yes.


We’re a little naughty and a lot hot, and the perks of being married are very… perky.

They’re perky in the shower, on the kitchen table, against the front door…


Until Bad Decision #1 tracks me down (thanks to Bad Decision #2), and my outlaw husband turns Alpha Protector, risking everything to keep us safe.

It’s just a marriage of convenience. It’s supposed to have an end date.

But when the dust settles, walking away from Raif Jones could be the worst decision I’ve ever made.


(A LITTLE NAUGHTY is a small-town, marriage of convenience romance with single-mom vibes, a protective hero, no third-act breakup, and light suspense. No cheating. No cliffhanger.)

Elizabeth's Review

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


Review Copy Provided by Author


Welcome back to Eureka!
This 4th installment focuses on two secondary characters, Raif Jones - town “bad boy” and Jemima- sister of Cass.
We have seen Raif sprinkled into all of the previous three books and Jemima was a new addition in Piper/ex’a story.

Both characters have had hard knocks and it was sweet to get to know them and see who they really are outside of their reputations. I appreciated how Ms Louise pulled things together and let their friendship/romance evolve organically. I especially liked how they brought out the best in each other.

Add in an entertaining intrigue element and this is a winner of a story! I can’t wait to see what’s next…
