ALCOHOL YOU LATER by Heather M. Orgeron ~ Review

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I’m completely speechless. I’m at a loss for words to express everything I imagined Alcohol You Later would be, as well as the reality of what it was, because it was so much more than I could have imagined. Orgeron has an uncanny ability to bring a sense of reality to the fictional worlds she creates, and she never fails to leave me in awe. Raven has a huge loving heart and an unwavering ability to see more in Nick than anyone ever has. We’d all be lucky to have someone who firmly believes that you are more than … Continue reading ALCOHOL YOU LATER by Heather M. Orgeron ~ Review

OFF THE BENCH by Alley Ciz ~ Review

Off The Bench is UNEQUIVOCALLY my new favorite #UofJ Ciz shattered the ceiling on any preconceived notions I had in regards to CK and Q’s story. Quinn is a spitfire, a sassy ray of sunshine; her outgoing personality lights up a room, and her heart is the most beautiful part of her. She was much more than she appeared, and I adored every aspect of her, from the crazy to the quirky. CK was a fantastically fleshed-out character who quickly stole my heart and scorched my soul. He’s shy, adorably awkward, and he’s been taken in by this group of … Continue reading OFF THE BENCH by Alley Ciz ~ Review

EMPIRE OF DESIRE by Rina Kent ~ Review

Age-gap, forced marriage, new adult, angst, and a possessive alpha hero were all enthralling elements in Empire of Desire. While this is a standalone, if you’ve read the Thorns Duet, as I have, you’ve been as intrigued by Nate as I was, and yet his story was so much more than I could have anticipated. Gwen felt emotions deeply, she made a valiant effort to keep them locked up tight, but that only works for so long before those emotions erupt, triggering every coping mechanism a person has in an effort to find some solace from all of the feelings … Continue reading EMPIRE OF DESIRE by Rina Kent ~ Review

WHEN WE WERE RECKLESS by Emery Rose ~ Review

Emery Rose is a master of enthralling angsty stories, and When We Were Reckless is that and more. One page was all it took for me to become completely enthralled by Quinn. Quinn wasn’t just the youngest and the only girl in the family but she had dealt with health issues, and that meant that her family was beyond protective of her. Quinn was sunshine, she was optimistic with a side of witty sass. I loved the way she embraced life as the gift that it is, and while she generally lived cautiously, she was also willing to take chances. … Continue reading WHEN WE WERE RECKLESS by Emery Rose ~ Review

WALLFLOWER by Jessica Prince ~ Review

Every new release is like going home for a visit with loved ones, no matter what small town Jessica Prince conjures. Willow is my favorite type of heroines of all time. She was a heated jumble of unfortunate clumsiness, shyness, and at times, in such awkward circumstances that her feelings washed over me as if it were my own. There was so much beneath the surface of this “wallflower” that she didn’t let others see, she had a gentle loving heart, and my chest ached when people took advantage of that. Stone is the most apt nickname for this man … Continue reading WALLFLOWER by Jessica Prince ~ Review

SOUTHERN HEART by Natasha Madison ~ Review

Southern Heart is the most aptly named book because this book is all heart, the people we carry in our hearts, grandparents, parents, siblings, and especially that person that burrows deep inside your heart so profoundly that even years apart doesn’t diminish the intensity in how that person can make your heart beat faster with a simple glance. Chelsea moved back home after receiving a degree in nursing. She’s sassy, stubborn, and all heart. I feel like her becoming a nurse was kismet. She’s a natural caregiver and I honestly adored everything about her character. Mayson stole a piece of … Continue reading SOUTHERN HEART by Natasha Madison ~ Review
