Review: Starry-Eyed Love by Helena Hunting

Charming, hilarious, and emotional…Starry-Eyed Love is Helena Hunting at her very best!

Having just broken up with her boyfriend, London Spark is not in the mood to be hit on. Especially not when she’s out celebrating her single status with her sisters. So when a very attractive man pays for their drinks and then slips her his number, she passes it right back to him with a ‘thanks, but no thanks’. As the business administrator for their family’s event hotel, the Spark House, London has more important things to worry about, like bringing in new clientele.

As luck would have it, a multi-million-dollar company calls a few months later asking for a meeting to discuss a potential partnership, and London is eager to prove to her sisters, and herself, that she can land this deal. Just when she thinks she has nailed her presentation, the company’s CEO, Jackson Holt, walks in and inserts himself into the meeting. Not only that, but he also happens to be the same guy she turned down at the bar a few months ago.

As they begin to spend more time together, their working relationship blossoms into something more. It isn’t until their professional entanglements are finally over, that London and Jackson are finally ready to take the next step in their relationship. But between Jackson’s secretive past and London’s struggle with her sisters, London must question where she really stands – not just with Jackson, but with the Spark House, too.

MY REVIEW

Starry-Eyed Love took me by surprise in the best possible way. I was hooked on London from the very first page and was excited to see where her story was going to take me.

When we first meet up with London, she’s fresh off a break up and has sworn off men. The last thing she’s looking for is to be hit on by a sexy, mysterious stranger. Flash forward to a few months later and London finds herself reunited with Jackson, the man she turned down. The more time London and Jackson spend together, the lines between business and pleasure become blurred. Will Jackson and London take a chance on love? There’s only one way to find out….

Starry-Eyed Love is a fun and refreshing romance. You could feel the chemistry and sparks between Jackson and London instantly. I enjoyed the push and pull between them, how they desperately tried to keep things on a business level, yet couldn’t ignore the sparks between them. I thought that Jackson was a pretty good book boyfriend. Of course, he wasn’t without his flaws. He didn’t always communicate the best and was a little guarded when it came to his past, but I truly believe he had the best of intentions.

Overall, I found this book to be a really wonderful read. I loved getting to know London and Jackson. Their story consumed me and definitely had me devouring it in just a few short hours. I thought their story had the perfect mix of steam, tension, and swoon and was filled with all the ups and downs you’d expect from a truly enjoyable love story. In the end, Starry-Eyed Love was just the romance I was looking for.

Review: Every Summer After by Carley Fortune

Review: Every Summer After by Carley Fortune

Six summers to fall in love. One moment to fall apart. A weekend to get it right.

They say you can never go home again, and for Persephone Fraser, ever since she made the biggest mistake of her life a decade ago, that has felt too true. Instead of glittering summers on the lakeshore of her childhood, she spends them in a stylish apartment in the city, going out with friends, and keeping everyone a safe distance from her heart.

Until she receives the call that sends her racing back to Barry’s Bay and into the orbit of Sam Florek—the man she never thought she’d have to live without.

For six summers, through hazy afternoons on the water and warm summer nights working in his family’s restaurant and curling up together with books—medical textbooks for him and work-in-progress horror short stories for her—Percy and Sam had been inseparable. Eventually that friendship turned into something breathtakingly more, before it fell spectacularly apart.

When Percy returns to the lake for Sam’s mother’s funeral, their connection is as undeniable as it had always been. But until Percy can confront the decisions she made and the years she’s spent punishing herself for them, they’ll never know whether their love might be bigger than the biggest mistakes of their past.

Told over the course of six years and one weekend, Every Summer After is a big, sweeping nostalgic look at love and the people and choices that mark us forever.

My Review

Every Summer After is a fantastic debut novel filled with all the mistakes of young love, forgiveness, and second chances.

It took six summers and one unforgettable weekend to change Persephone’s life forever. No matter how hard she tried, she never got over her first big love. When tragedy strikes, Persephone finds herself returning to the place she never thought she’d step foot in again. Suddenly Persephone is forced to confront the ghosts of her past…

Every Summer After is a beautiful story of young love and the mistakes we make trying to find our way. I fell instantly in love with Persephone and Sam. Their story hit me with all the feels and left me hanging on each and every word. The road to happily ever after for these two is not an easy one. It’s filled with longing and regret. It’s filled with mistakes and betrayal. It’s filled with hope and second chances. Persephone and Sam’s story took me on one heck of an emotional journey. I loved the push and pull, the will they/won’t they moments. And I just loved every second of it.

Every Summer After is well-written, engaging, and will easily consume your afternoon. This book gave me all the feels and checked off all the boxes for this reader. I’m blown away by the fact that this is Carley Fortune’s debut novel and can not wait to read more from this author in the future.

My life seemed perfect until he came back to town. With his sights set on me, he’s ready to settle down and face any challenge. Fans of Briar U by Elle Kennedy will devour Our Best Shot by A.M. Williams, a small-town, forced proximity, hockey romance.

Read Now!

Rory

On the outside, my life seems perfect. I have my friends, family, and quirky small town to keep me satisfied plus my secret writing career that’s done better than I ever dreamed. What’s not to love?

There’s just one thing missing. But I don’t know what it is.

At least until he comes back to town. The man I crushed on so hard in high school, I couldn’t talk in full sentences around him.

He’s back, he’s ready to settle down, and he’s set his sights on me, the wallflower.

Every time I turn around, there he is. He wants to know about me. And no matter how hard I try to ignore him…I can’t. He’s everything I wanted as a teenager.

And as an adult? I’m discovering that he’s the total package and is ready to sweep me off my feet.

Alex

Deciding to retire from my professional hockey career was easy. I miss my family, friends, and hometown. I crave a slower lifestyle so I can finally settle down.

What isn’t easy? Figuring out how to coach teenaged boys in how to play hockey and win over the woman I can’t stop thinking about.

I think about her constantly and am constantly finding ways to run into her ‘by accident’. I want to know everything about her, but she’s hesitant and I have my work cut out for me to convince her to step outside her comfort zone and date me.

But I’m up for the challenge. I’m ready to show her what being with me could be like and that she doesn’t need to be scared.

With outside forces working against us, can we get it together for our best shot at a happily ever after?

MY REVIEW

Small-Town Romance ✅

Hockey Romance ✅

Drama ✅

Melding exes ✅

Ever since I came across the blurb for Our Best Shot, I have been dying to get my hands on it. I was lucky enough to get an advanced copy of this book and let me tell you, this book does not disappoint. Our Best Shot is well written, entertaining, and is the perfect small-town romance.

From the moment I met Alex and Rory, I was hooked. Their story captivated me from the first page and left me wanting more. The chemistry and sparks between Rory and Alex were instant and I just couldn’t wait to see where their story would take us.

The road to happily ever after wasn’t an easy one for Rory and Alex. With meddling exes and an agent who couldn’t get the hint, Rory and Alex were tested in ways neither one of them expected. At times, it felt like the hits just kept coming. The drama kept me on my toes and I couldn’t wait to see how things would play out.

Our Best Shot is a fantastic small-town, sports romance. It checked off all the boxes this reader was hoping for and I devoured it in a single sitting. I absolutely loved the small-town setting and all of the drama that went along with it. Speaking of drama, this story had it in spades and I just couldn’t get enough.

Small-town, Sports Romance fans are in for a real treat with Our Best Shot. AM Williams doesn’t disappoint. I had the best time getting swept up in Rory and Alex’s story and look forward to seeing what this author has in store for us next.

Excerpt

Copyright 2022 @A.M. Williams

 “You want to sit for a little while?” Alex asked, pointing to a bench just ahead of us and off the main path.

I nodded, hoping that the bench would be enough out of the way that people wouldn’t notice us sitting there and stop staring.

We settled in and I sipped my coffee, looking the park over.

Compared to the weekend before, the park looked totally transformed.

There were bright tents throughout the trees with local crafters and artisans, and loud chatter filled the air from people walking around.

“This festival looks no different from when I came as a kid,” Alex said, pulling my attention to him.

I glanced at him and watched as he looked over at what I’d just been looking at.

“Are you surprised? You know we like tradition here.”

Alex chuckled. “Not really. I guess since it’s been so long since I was here, that I expected something to have changed. But nothing has. The same tents, same vendors, same atmosphere.”

I made a noise low in my throat. “There are some new vendors. They’re just peppered throughout. Some ones you’re thinking of don’t come anymore.”

What I didn’t say was that some owners had died because of how old they were and their businesses closed. The town had to get some new life for the vendors, otherwise this festival would have dwindled.

“Still. This is the same. If I close my eyes, I bet I could recall where everyone is and the order of the games at the rink. I feel like no time has passed.”

I said nothing at first. Then I asked, “Are you happy to be here at least?”

Alex met my gaze and nodded. “I am. It’s weird how I didn’t think about so much related to town while I was gone. I came home for holidays and brief visits, but everything else was just background. But now that I’m here, I can’t help remembering coming as a kid with my mom and sister. Hanging with my friends before our games. And all the other shit that the town does throughout the year.”

I thought about what he was saying. I didn’t have any experience not coming to the town events, considering I went to college close by and returned to town the minute I could. I’d kept coming to everything, even throughout college.

About A.M. Williams

THE SCORE KEEPER

Gina Azzi

Release Date: March 3

Boston Hawks owner Scott Reland is my father’s biggest rival and the last man who should catch my eye. But when he does, I don’t look away.

We’ve circled each other for years, two outliers in a small club of NHL owners. We know the rules, manage similar pressures, and understand that this lifestyle — hockey over everything — isn’t for everyone.

Which is why I want out.

To prove to my father that I have a future beyond the New York Sharks, I score one for me and open a bakery in Boston, the city that reveres Scott.

It isn’t long until the dynamic and perceptive Hawk pursues me. And I’m entirely unprepared to be swept off my feet, cared for and supported after so many years on my own. Scott easily draws me back into the hockey life I thought I didn’t want.

But can our relationship survive the demands of this industry? Or will I always be keeping score, second to the game that dictates everything?

MY REVIEW

The Score Keeper is the ninth book in the Boston Hawks Series, but it can be read and enjoyed as a standalone novel.

The Score Keeper follows the story of Scott and Noelle. For years, life kept throwing Scott and Noelle together. But, Scott being Noelle’s dad’s number one competitor could only mean trouble. Despite the trouble a relationship between the two could cause, a passion like theirs is too hot to ignite….

Overall, I found this book to be a quick and enjoyable read. I enjoyed the ease of Scott and Noelle’s relationship. Neither one of them was really looking for a relationship, but when you have chemistry like these two do, you can’t help but explore it.

Despite being Noelle’s father’s rival, Scott is a real standup guy. He’s older, more mature, and isn’t afraid of going after what he wants. When he’s into something, he gives it 110% of his support. And then we have Noelle. Noelle is desperately trying to make it on her own. She loves her father but doesn’t want to be a part of his world. She wants to pursue her own passions.

The road to happily ever wasn’t an easy one for Scott and Noelle. They had not only their careers to figure out, but also the obstacle of Noelle’s father. Seeing these two try to work together and overcome their issues had me rooting for them to find their way towards a happily ever after.

The Score Keeper is a fun and sexy sports romance. The characters are easy to relate to and root for. I was invested from the first page and was excited to see how everything would come together in the end. All in all, this was a great book to spend my day getting swept up in.

MY REVIEW

Only One Love follows the story of Franny and Wilson. Wilson is known as the bad boy both on and off the ice. That reputation suited him just fine until Franny came into the picture. Franny turned his world upside down and made him want to be a better man. Falling for Wilson was the last thing on Franny’s radar, but somehow, Wilson made his way under her skin, making her want things she never dreamed. When scandal hits, Franny and Wilson will be tested in ways they never imagined…

I fell head over heels for Franny and Wilson from the moment I met them. I loved Franny’s fiery personality. She was a woman who knew what she wanted and wasn’t afraid to go after it. I couldn’t imagine a better match for Wilson. Wilson had the worst reputation and attitude to go along with it. The last thing he was looking for was love or a relationship. Wilson didn’t really know what he was missing in his life until Franny came into the picture. Together, these two were the ultimate match. Franny brought out the swoon-worthy alpha in Wilson. Not only did they two burn up the pages together, but the way they supported one other and had the other’s back…Ugh! I couldn’t get enough!

Now, no good love story is without its share of drama. Franny and Wilson’s love was definitely put to the test. I really enjoyed watching them navigate their way from scandal to happily ever after. If ever there was a couple that had me rooting for them, it was Franny and Wilson.

Only One Love is the seventh book in the Only One Series but can be read and enjoyed as a standalone novel. That being said, as someone who has been a fan of this series, I really enjoyed spending time with all the familiar faces and seeing all of their stories intertwine.

If you’re looking for a swoon-worthy and sexy read to spend your day curled up with, you won’t want to miss Only One Love.

Release Blitz with Review: On The Honey Side by Staci Hart

No one can ever have Keaton Meyer.
Least of all me.
The brooding construction manager is a man of myth and legend, rarely seen in the wild. Once upon a time, he was the star quarterback, the smiling homecoming king, royalty in our small town. Until tragedy struck. And then he disappeared completely.
Now he’s resurfaced, and I can’t keep my eyes off him.
He’s an island surrounded by lava, bound by a desert and guarded by dragons. I don’t stand a sunshine’s chance in a hail storm.
Our siblings disagree and are out to prove it, nudging us into each other in the hopes we’ll fall. But with our town in tumult and the two of us firmly in the middle, nothing between us is easy. And when he’s faced with an impossible decision, I learn the truth of what I already knew.
No one can have Keaton Meyer.
And I have the broken heart to prove it.

MY REVIEW

“Everything abandoned deserves a new story.” “Otherwise, what’s the point to all this?”

On The Honey Side is a heartwarming, small-town romance that will leave readers with all the feels.

On The Honey Side follows the story of Keaton and Daisy. Once upon a time, Keaton was on top of the world, but when tragedy strikes his entire world gets turned upside down. Now, Keaton is just a shell of the man he once was and is just trying to keep his business afloat. The last thing he has time for is Daisy. But, when fate throws them together for a community project, an undeniable spark presents itself to them. Will Daisy be the spark to bring Keaton back to life and the man he once was? There’s only one way to find out….

Overall, I thought this book was a quick and easy read. The characters were easy to relate to and connect with. Daisy and Keaton were both no strangers to loss and heartbreak. And while Keaton’s past turned him into this broody and grump of a man, somehow, Daisy remained a ray of sunshine who held onto hope. I loved the slow burn of their story, seeing them both take chances and overcome their pasts.

Something that really stood out to me in this book was the author wasn’t afraid to go after the tough issues. Not only does this book deal with heartbreak and loss, but it also deals with the really heavy and hard issues surrounding homelessness and the way it affects a community.

There’s a lot to love and enjoy about On The Honey Side. On The Honey Side is smartly written and entertaining. The characters are wonderful and easy to connect with. I adored the slow-burning romance and drama that followed. I loved the small-town that Daisy and Keaton were a part of and how the town came together to help and support one of their own.

If you love Grumpy Sunshine, Small-Town, Second Chance Romances, you won’t want to miss On The Honey Side. I can’t wait to see what this author will have in store for us next.

Review: Good Girl Complex by Elle Kennedy

She does everything right. So what could go wrong?

Mackenzie “Mac” Cabot is a people pleaser. Her demanding parents. Her prep school friends. Her long-time boyfriend. It’s exhausting, really, always following the rules. Unlike most twenty-year-olds, all she really wants to do is focus on growing her internet business, but first she must get a college degree at her parents’ insistence. That means moving to the beachside town of Avalon Bay, a community made up of locals and the wealthy students of Garnet College.

Mac’s had plenty of practice suppressing her wilder impulses, but when she meets local bad boy Cooper Hartley, that ability is suddenly tested. Cooper is rough around the edges. Raw. Candid. A threat to her ordered existence. Their friendship soon becomes the realest thing in her life.

Despite his disdain for the trust-fund kids he sees coming and going from his town, Cooper soon realizes Mac isn’t just another rich clone and falls for her. Hard. But as Mac finally starts feeling accepted by Cooper and his friends, the secret he’s been keeping from her threatens the only place she’s ever felt at home.

MY REVIEW

2022 is already off to a great start for reading. Good Girl Complex is the second book of the year to knock my socks off. 

The Good Girl Complex is smartly written and entertaining. What started off as a revenge plot quickly lead to something more. Good Girl Complex is filled with lots of laugh-out-loud moments and angsty ones too. I loved the bad boy/good girl, wrong side of the tracks vibes.

Cooper and Mac were total opposites with amazing chemistry and banter. I loved Cooper and Mac together and couldn’t get enough of them. Sure there were some moments when I wanted to shake Cooper and his friends, but in the end, they all won me over and had me glued to the pages.

Good Girl Complex was everything I was looking for in a NA read. It was fun. It was entertaining. It had great romance and lots of good drama. I had a great time getting lost in Cooper and Mac’s story and look forward to seeing what this author has in store for us next.

Release Blitz with Review: Shelter by Kristen Proby

Shelter by Kristen Proby is now live! 

A small town, close proximity romance from New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Kristen Proby.

Remi Carter has survived her fifteen minutes of fame and is putting LA in her rearview mirror. As a former reality show contestant, she’s trading staged expeditions and faked wilderness tours for real adventures. Only one fluke storm in Glacier National Park has her stranded with a handsome man, and adventure takes on a whole new meaning.

Seth King is as rugged and sexy as he is annoyed to be trapped with Remi. Probably because she ghosted him at the local bar not three days ago. But she’s got her reasons for ditching him, and twenty-four hours in an abandoned Montana cabin with the wildlife biologist isn’t nearly enough time to explain.

As tempting as he is by firelight, she’s been burned too many times.

Except one day together and suddenly her travel van doesn’t hold as much appeal. The open road feels lonely. Remi’s about to learn that shelter is more than a safe place to weather a storm.

Shelter might just be the man himself. If he can give her a reason to stay.

MY REVIEW

Remi had her fifteen minutes of fame and now wants nothing more than to put LA and her fame behind her. Traveling the country in her van, she’s ready for some real adventure and Montana just might have all the answers she’s been looking for…..

When we first meet up with Remi, she’s on a quest for adventure, but quickly finds that she’s anything but prepared. A fluke snowstorm will leave her stranded with an unexpected stranger who ends up turning her world upside down. Seth and Remi were a hit from the very start. Their chemistry was palpable and the more time I spent with them, the more I was hooked on their story. Remi and Seth were so alike. Both of them had tough times growing up and had pasts they’d prefer to leave behind.

I adored the small-town feel of this story and how everyone only wanted the best for Seth and Remi. I adored Seth’s family and their bond. They only wanted what was best for him and I loved how close he was to them. I especially loved the interactions between Remi and Seth’s family, how they all set out to meet her and “check out” the woman who captured Seth’s interest.

Shelter is a must-read, heartwarming, small-town romance. While this is the second book in the Heroes of Big Sky Series, it can be read and enjoyed as a standalone novel. Shelter is a quick read that you can’t help but devour in a single sitting. This book is pretty low on drama and is a terrific story to spend your day getting swept up in.

Blog Tour with Review: Dangerous Temptation by Giana Darling

Blog Tour with Review: Dangerous Temptation by Giana Darling

Dangerous Temptation by Giana Darling is now live!

He arrives all dressed in black. Diamond cufflinks. A watch on his tanned wrist that cost more than we would ever see in a lifetime of work. He carries a single red rose for my mother.

Months later, Tiernan Morelli lays red roses on my mother’s grave. That same day, he tells me that he is my new guardian.

I should have known from the very start that he had more in common with the thorns than the rose. Now I know the truth: I’m a pawn in his dangerous game of revenge. I was too young and naive. Now it’s too late to save myself from his clutches.

Now I belong to him.

MY REVIEW

“So this is what it’s like to lose control. This is what those poets and artists paint with words and oils. Madness brought on by the acute ache of longing.”

Dangerous Temptation picks up right where the novella Bad Dream left off. It totally hits the ground running and let me tell you, this book definitely lives up to its title. Dangerous Temptation is absolutely delicious and was everything I was hoping it would be. This book is dangerous. It’s exciting. It is sexy. It keeps you on your toes and has you wondering what everyone’s agenda is.

The moment Bianca Belcante and Tiernan Morelli lives become intertwined, their lives are forever changed. If you’re a fan of the Midnight Dynasty Series, you’re going to want to get your greedy hands on this book asap!

There’s so much I want to say about this book, but I’m not going to spoil it for you. What I can say is that this book is one that you can’t put down. It’s consuming in the best way possible. There’s more to this story than meets the eye and I can not wait to see where this story is going to take us next.

If you’re a fan of Giana Darling, you’re not going to want to miss this book….
