Release Blitz with Review: Bet The Farm by Staci Hart

Amazon | AppleBooks | Kobo | B&N | Goodreads

Olivia Brent has one summer to save the dairy farm she just inherited.

But there’s one problem, and it’s not her lactose intolerance.

Jake Milovic.

The brooding farmhand has inherited exactly fifty percent of Brent Farm, and he’s so convinced the city girl can’t work the land, he bets she can’t save it in a summer. 

Determined to prove him wrong, Olivia accepts what might be the dumbest wager of her life.

His strategy to win seems simple: follow her around, shirtlessly distracting her between bouts of relentless taunting. And it’s effective—if his dark eyes and rare smiles aren’t enough to sidetrack her, the sweaty, rolling topography of the manbeast’s body would do the trick.

What they don’t know: they’ll have to weather more than each other. 

Mysterious circumstances throw the farm into disarray, and with the dairy farm in danger, Olivia and Jake have to work together. But when they do, there’s more to fear than either of them imagined.

Because now their hearts are on the line, and the farm won’t be the only casualty if they fail.

MY REVIEW

“If Frank taught me one thing, it was that there was always hope. In the darkest night, at the lowest low, there is always hope.”

“Mine. The word was a rush of thunder, a roar in my ribs, the knowledge pure. I couldn’t fathom how I hadn’t known. How I missed something so plain, so clear.”

Bet The Farm was one of my most anticipated reads of 2021 and Staci Hart does not disappoint. Bet The Farm is the kind of enemies to lovers romance I can’t help but swoon over. With exciting banter and explosive chemistry, Jack and Olivia’s story hits all the marks and will keep you begging for more.

Bet The Farm is a small town, second chance romance with an enemies to lovers flair. The main characters are Jack and Olivia, two characters that will have you sucked into their story instantly and dying to know what will happen next. When we first meet up with Olivia, she’s returned to the only place that’s ever been home. She’s just inherited her pop’s farm but is hit with an unexpected twist. Jack is the brooding farmhand, has to split the farm 50/50 with Olivia. The last thing he wants is some city girl blowing into town changing things. He doesn’t think she can hack it and she is desperate to prove him wrong. Before either one realizes it, there will be more at stake than just the farm….

Bet The Farm was everything I was looking for and then some. I love, love, love small-town romances and when you add in the enemies to lovers element, I know I’ve got a great read on my hands. Staci Hart did a fabulous job making these characters not only feel realistic but easy to relate to and envision. The sparks and chemistry between Jack and Olivia were instant and consuming. I loved watching the two of them banter and Olivia’s determination to prove Jack wrong. The antics between the two of them led to some pretty hilarious moments and left me dying for more. These two characters also shared some pretty great will they/won’t they moments. You could just feel the tension radiating off them.

Now, the road to happily ever after wasn’t all sunshine and roses for these two. Staci Hart definitely threw some obstacles their way and added a little mystery to their already complicated story. There were some moments where I definitely wanted to shake Jack and yell at him to stop before he put his foot in his mouth further. Despite all the challenges and frustrating moments Jack and Olivia faced, I couldn’t help but root for them to find their way to one another and get the happily ever after they deserved.

If you’re a fan of stubborn females and grumpy heroes, you can’t go wrong with Bet The Farm. This story is a small-town romance with some wonderfully humorous and entertaining moments. Staci Hart has written a fabulous story in her signature style that will make readers laugh, smile, and swoon. Bet The Farm is written with a lot of heart and is sure to leave readers with a huge smile on their faces.

I had a fabulous time getting swept up in this story and can’t wait to see what this author has in store for us readers next!

Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life — a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can’t forget that. She’s also been a mom, with three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She’s been a wife, though she’s certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She’s also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she’s been drinking whiskey. When she’s not writing, she’s reading, sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.

Review: The Bookworm’s Guide to Flirting by Emma Hart

Review: The Bookworm’s Guide to Flirting by Emma Hart

What I thought I’d get on Valentine’s Day: a card.
What I got on Valentine’s Day: a blind date with my brand new roommate.

Let it be known that I, Saylor Green, am wholeheartedly against blind dating. I think it’s superficial, unnecessary, and designed wholly to force people into relationships they aren’t ready for.
It’s me. I’m people.
So when Dylan Parker takes the seat across from me, I’m ready to dismiss him at one glance.
The problem? He’s hot and funny and sweet and the exact kind of guy I read about in the romance novels I sell like hotcakes in my bookstore.
He’s also my new roommate.
Who likes to walk around in his sweatpants and peer over my shoulder and comment on all my online dating escapades.
When he offers to help me flirt my way to dating success, I’m all for it.
But what am I supposed to do when the only person I want to flirt with is… Dylan?

MY REVIEW

The Bookworm’s Guide to Flirting is the third book in the Bookworm’s Guide Series and it follows the story of Dylan and Saylor. The last thing on Saylor’s mind is getting set up on a blind date. She’s totally against it. But, when her friends beg her to participate, she can’t say no. What she least expected was to find her roommate Dylan sitting across from her. He’s funny, sweet, and has all the qualities you’d want to find in a great book boyfriend. The problem? You guessed it. He’s her roommate. At first, the two of them laugh it off as a plan their buddies put together but quickly turns into more. Suddenly, Dylan is looking more interesting to Saylor. And when Dylan offers to help Saylor with her flirting, all bets are off. Will these two open their eyes and take a chance on what’s in front of them? There’s only one way to find out….

The Bookworm’s Guide to Flirting is a quick and entertaining read. I thought this story was written well and I loved Emma Hart’s signature humor. You can easily find yourself devouring this book in just a few short hours. I thought the idea of this story was a lot of fun. I was entertained by the banter and humorous moments. I loved the chemistry that Dylan and Saylor shared. Dylan was exactly the guy Saylor could see herself with but she had to get over the fact that he was her roommate. That fact alone, had me dying to see what would happen between the two of them.

Overall, I had a fun time getting swept up in Saylor and Dylan’s story. It was really easy to connect with and get lost in these two. Emma Hart delivers another wonderfully entertaining read that is sure to leave readers glued to the pages right until the very end. And I for one, can not wait to see what this author has in store for us readers next!

Review: The Things We Leave Unfinished by Rebecca Yarros

Review: The Things We Leave Unfinished by Rebecca Yarros

Twenty-eight-year-old Georgia Stanton has to start over after she gave up almost everything in a brutal divorce—the New York house, the friends, and her pride. Now back home at her late great-grandmother’s estate in Colorado, she finds herself face-to-face with Noah Harrison, the bestselling author of a million books where the cover is always people nearly kissing. He’s just as arrogant in person as in interviews, and she’ll be damned if the good-looking writer of love stories thinks he’s the one to finish her grandmother’s final novel…even if the publisher swears he’s the perfect fit.

Noah is at the pinnacle of his career. With book and movie deals galore, there isn’t much the “golden boy” of modern fiction hasn’t accomplished. But he can’t walk away from what might be the best book of the century—the one his idol, Scarlett Stanton, left unfinished. Coming up with a fitting ending for the legendary author is one thing, but dealing with her beautiful, stubborn, cynical great-granddaughter, Georgia, is quite another.

But as they read Scarlett’s words in both the manuscript and her box of letters, they start to realize why Scarlett never finished the book—it’s based on her real-life romance with a World War II pilot, and the ending isn’t a happy one. Georgia knows all too well that love never works out, and while the chemistry and connection between her and Noah is undeniable, she’s as determined as ever to learn from her great-grandmother’s mistakes—even if it means destroying Noah’s career.

Told in alternating timelines, THE THINGS WE LEAVE UNFINISHED examines the risks we take for love, the scars too deep to heal, and the endings we can’t bring ourselves to see coming. 

MY REVIEW

“Gran used to say she saw the characters as fully fleshed-out people with complicated pasts, set on a collision course. She saw their flaws as something to overcome.”

Just when you think you have a grasp on the kind of love story a Rebecca Yarros novel can give you, she has to go and deliver The Things We Leave Unfinished. The Things We Leave Unfinished is a unique and intriguing romance that operates on two alternating timelines. The Things We Leave Unfinished is an unforgettable love story that will mesmerize readers right until the very end…

The Things We Leave Unfinished starts off in the present time with Georgia and Noah. Noah has been brought in to finish her great-grandmother’s last book. Georgia isn’t too thrilled about the idea but allows to let Noah work on it as long as he gives it the ending she wants. Naturally, the two of them butt heads over this, and Noah will try his hardest to get Georgia to see things his way….Timeline #2 is Scarlett’s real-life romance told through the pages of her manuscript and letters from her love…

Overall, I thought this was a truly beautiful and unique story. The story flowed well and sucks you in instantly. The characters are real, flawed, and perfectly imperfect. I will be the first to admit that it took some time for me to get used to the alternating timelines/stories, but once I got into it, I was hooked! I loved all the little touches and the love letters. It made this story feel real and like the readers are a part of it.

The Things We Leave Unfinished is a love story that transcends time and pages. It’s a story about the risks we’re willing to take for love. It’s a story about secrets hidden in the past and the mess that’s left behind. It’s a story about thinking you know all of the pieces to it, but finding yourself completely wrong. Most of all, it’s a story of love and second chances.

At the end of the day, this story that Rebecca Yarros has given us will take you on one incredible journey that is sure to deliver all the feels.

TITLE: BENEATH THE STARS

RELEASE DATE: FEBRUARY 22ND, 2020

Synopsis

From NYT and USA Today bestselling author A.L. Jackson comes a friends-to-lovers romance about an unattainable rockstar and his best friend’s younger sister…

Maggie Fitzgerald is the last girl I should think about taking to my bed.

On the cusp of turning 21, she has her whole life waiting out ahead of her. Sexy AF while still radiating an innocence that I know better than to taint.

And here I am, itching to reach out and touch a girl who is so forbidden that just thinking about her feels like committing a mortal sin.

Thing is, I love playing with fire.

Rhys Manning is everything I shouldn’t want.

Country-rock’s newest superstar.

Fun. Wild. Ready to show the world a good time.

He’s so off-limits it isn’t even funny.

So out of reach he might as well be a poster tacked on my wall.

Too bad every time he looks at me, my heart races out of control.

Now, I’m stuck living with him for the entire summer…

We’re only supposed to be friends. Still, I should have known it was a terrible idea when I started sneaking into his room. Especially when it’s clear he’s keeping secrets.

Secrets that might destroy us both.

One touch, and I want more.

One kiss, and I’m spiraling out of control.

I know it’s reckless to start dancing in the flames.

But in exchange for getting to spend one night with this brooding bad boy? I might be willing to get burned…

MY REVIEW

“Life is messy, Rhys. It doesn’t matter who I’m with or who I care about. They’re going to have messy bits. Just like I have mine.”

“Three feet seperated us. A world. A chasm. A breath. A whisper.”

“Sweet Siren.” That’s what she was. A song in the storm. Lulling me into peace when it was gonna be my demise.”

“Be with me for now, Rhys. Tell me that right now, I belong to you and you belong to me. I feel your burden, I feel your heart, and I know you’ll never love me, and I know we’re not supposed to pretend, but I need it, Rhys. I need to feel this for a bit. We never know how long we have, and this is the first ture, real thing I’ve ever had.”

A.L. Jackson has spun a beautiful and soul-wrenching love story that is sure to grab readers by their hearts and leave them gasping for each and every word…

Let’s face it, I can’t say it enough. No one and I mean no one writes lyrical and angsty romance like A.L. Jackson. Her stories are about incredible journeys that the reader will feel deep in their very core. Beneath The Stars is no exception. Beneath The Stars is an unforgettable love story that will capture your heart and soul from the very first page. Rhys and Maggie’s story is one filled with incredible heart, pain, and oh, so much love. These two will pull you into their story right away and I dare you to not fall in love with these characters, with their story. Rhys and Maggie are two incredibly broken people searching for what will make them whole. Try as they might, they can’t fight the indescribable pull between them. Their journey is not an easy one. It’s one filled with mystery, drama, and of course a few bumps in the road. Rhys and Maggie’s story will leave you gasping, sighing, and holding your breath right until the very end. Beneath The Stars is a breath of fresh air that will leave readers with all of the feels.

Beneath The Stars is a beautiful and unforgettable story. The writing is lyrical and spellbinding. It hit all the marks that I personally look for when reading an A.L. Jackson novel. This story is filled with heart, family, and so much love. It’s a story of finding peace and forgiveness. It’s a story about finding love and allowing yourself to be loved. It’s a story of letting go of the past and taking chances on what one wants most. It’s a story that will consume you and will have you devouring each and every word this story has to offer. It is the kind of story that you will remember long after you reach THE END…

Review: Wraith by Renee Rocco

Review: Wraith by Renee Rocco

Welcome to the new world order—where the villains have become the heroes.

ERIC ‘WRAITH’ SHAW
Once upon a time… Yeah, no. Let’s stop right there. This isn’t a fairytale. I’m not exactly Prince Charming. And I haven’t forgotten the day Jamie Ellis left town in handcuffs. But that feels like lifetimes ago. My high school crush is all grown up and she’s married to the man who’s holding me prisoner. Drugged and tortured, I’ve become a monster who’ll stop at nothing to rip David Crane’s world apart.

JAMIE ELLIS
When I left Mayhem at sixteen, a piece of my heart stayed behind with the charismatic bad-boy I’ve loved since kindergarten. But I’m a product of a life gone wrong, and I married David hoping for a better future. Now that I know the depth of my husband’s depravity, I’ll risk everything to ruin his carefully crafted empire—because if Wraith and I want our happily ever after, we’re going to have to fight for it…

Wraith is a complete standalone in the Masters of Mayhem series.

MY REVIEW

Wraith is the first book in the Masters of Mayhem series and follows the story of Wraith and Jamie. Their story is gritty and intense and is anything but a fairytale. This is my first book by Renee Rocco and it won’t be my last. Renee Rocco delivered a dark, second chance romance that sucks the reader in and has them unable to put Jamie and Wraith’s story down.

As I previously stated, Wraith is a dark and gritty story. It is descriptive and intense. It might be too much for some viewers. I’m not gonna lie, some of these scenes were even hard for me to read. Intensity aside, I think this book was well written and will definitely intrigue the reader. Wraith and Jamie are beautifully broken and are in for the fight of their lives….

Overall, I thought this book was crazy and intense. This is my first book by this author and I’m looking forward to discovering more of her books.

MY REVIEW

Reckless Road is the 5th book in the Torpedo Ink Series and follows the story of Player and Zyah. Player is one of the calmest members of Torpedo Ink MC, so it might surprise you that he is considered to be one of the roughest. Not much seems to bother Player except when his gifts get the best of him. On one of his darkest nights, he meets Zyah and somehow she manages to soothe him. Their night together was amazing, but an innocent mistake threatens to ruin what was developing. Will Player be able to make things right? Will Zyah give him a second chance? There’s only one way to find out.

Overall, I thought this book was a pretty enjoyable read. I thought it well written and had a good pace. The characters were enjoyable and entertaining. I liked learning about Player’s gift and was utterly fascinated by it. I thought Player and Zyah were a good match. They had amazing chemistry and I really like how Zyah could settle Player. Just like the previous books in this series, this story had an intensity to it that draws the reader in and leaves them begging for more. All in all, a fine addition to this series.

Review: Strong Enough (Meet Me In Montana #4) by Kelly Elliott

Review: Strong Enough (Meet Me In Montana #4) by Kelly Elliott

The fourth and final novel in New York Times bestselling author Kelly Elliott’s Meet Me in Montana series fires up the passion in a story about forgiveness and finding your soul mate.

Dirk Littlewood had the world at his feet and a life he claimed to love. He was a world-champion bull rider with plenty of women to keep his nights busy and make his inner loneliness nothing but a delusion.

Dirk’s life was exactly how he wanted it.

Until it wasn’t.

The moment Merit Eden showed back up in Hamilton, Montana, everything was turned upside down. Life changed immediately and then tragedy struck.

Merit was the only woman who could bring Dirk to his knees—and the only woman who could heal his broken past. If only he’d let her in, they could heal each other in the process.

The only thing left for Dirk to do was figure out how to not only forgive himself, but accept forgiveness from the only woman he had ever truly loved…if only he was strong enough to withstand the heartbreak.

My Review

“The only thing I’ve ever wanted from you was you. This. Us.”

Holy Angst Alert!!! If you’re looking for a book filled with tension and all kinds of delicious angst, then look no further. Strong Enough is just the book you are looking for.

Strong Enough is the 4th book in the Meet Me In Montana Series and it is sure to take your heart and emotions on one heck of a ride. Strong Enough follows the story of Dirk and Merit. Dirk is on top of the world. He’s got a job he loves and is good at and women who just drop at his feet. But the status quo isn’t living up to the hype for him anymore. He’s tired and looking for a change. So, when Merit blows back into town, you can bet, she turned his whole world upside down. You see, Merit is the only woman who could bring Dirk to his knees. Only, when it comes to Merit, Dirk can’t stop making mistakes. He is the pure definition of “foot-in-mouth”. Will Dirk come to his senses and win over the girl of his dreams? There’s only one way to find out…..

Strong Enough is a fantastic read from beginning to end. Dirk and Merit gave my heart a run for its money and had my feels all over the place. Yes, these two made me absolutely batty at times. Many years ago, Dirk broke Merit’s heart and Merit has never been able to move past it. When fate reunites these two, the tension, chemistry, and love is still there. But, being able to forgive and forget, is a whole other story. The road to happily ever after isn’t an easy one for Merit and Dirk. In fact, Dirk is going to frustrate you so much, you’re going to wonder how he’s ever going to redeem himself??

Strong Enough is the kind of story that is going to capture your heart from the very beginning and will leave you hanging on each and every word. It is a story about first love and heartbreak. A story of pain and moving on. A story of love, loss, and forgiveness. Merit and Dirk’s story will take readers on an unforgettable ride and in the end, leave a satisfying smile on their faces…..

Review: The Bluff (Calamity Montana #2) by Willa Nash

Review: The Bluff (Calamity Montana #2) by Willa Nash

The Bluff by Willa Nash is now live!

From USA Today Bestselling Author Devney Perry writing as Willa Nash comes a small town Montana romance.

As Calamity’s newest resident, Everly Christian thought life in small-town Montana would be dull and tame—and she needs a little mundane after the last few chaotic years. But one night, boredom drives her to the local bar, where she finds herself sitting beside a handsome and mysterious artist.

The man is anything but dull and tame, especially in the bedroom, and when she steps out of his shower and overhears his conversation, life gets interesting again.

Reese Huxley needs a wife.

And why shouldn’t Everly be the bride?

She’s got her reasons for agreeing to the hasty nuptials—reasons she’s keeping to herself. As long as she can stop herself from falling in love with her husband, she’ll make it out of this sham marriage in one piece. But Everly has a weakness for wayward men, and the more Hux pushes her away, the more she realizes this bluff is anything but a lie.

MY REVIEW

“I wanted it to be real. With every passing day, I wanted to belong to someone special and have that someone special belong to me.”

“Hux owned every memory of Calamity, even the ones before we’d met. Because they’d all lead me to him.”

2021 has barely begun, and I’ve already found a book to put on my top reads list. The Bluff is just my kind of read. My very own kryptonite. It’s stories like this that I can’t get enough of and that remind me daily of why I love reading so much…

The Bluff is the second book in the Calamity Montana Series and it follows the story of Hux and Everly. Following the events of The Bribe, Everly has decided to stay on in Calamity and is looking forward to a slower-paced life. What she didn’t count on was one night of boredom bringing Hux into her life. Hux is a mysterious artist that always has a scowl on his face. He isn’t looking for love, but can’t pass up a good time. But, when Everly overhears a conversation Hux is having with his lawyer, his world is going to be turned upside down.

The Bluff is everything I was hoping for and more. Fake Relationship books are my kryptonite. I am completely, 100% addicted to them. I can’t help but devour these kinds of stories and The Bluff checked off each and every one of my boxes. The Bluff is filled with heart and romance. It’s filled with love, growth, and moments that will definitely frustrate you. It’s a story of learning to let go and not be afraid to trust. It’s a story of family and forgiveness that will pull at your heart and leave you begging for more.

If you’re a fan of Willa Nash/Devney Perry’s writing then you know what you’re getting yourself into. You can expect a captivating story that’s words will leap off the page and leave you begging for more. You can expect a flawlessly written story with an air of mystery and plenty of sexy good times. Most of all, you can expect a story that will give you all the feels and make you fall helplessly in love. And that’s just some of what The Bluff gave to me.

If you’re a fan of second chance/fake relationship romances, I highly recommend giving The Bluff a try. I hope you’ll fall head over heels for Hux and Everly just as I have…

MY REVIEW

“You stake a claim, you stake it because you want what you’re claimin’. Then you keep hold, no matter what you gotta do to keep it. I claimed you and I’m keeping hold.”

“We can’t do anything about those pages that were already written, baby. But we’re past those. Now we’re writing it new. You with me?”

4.5, You With Me, Stars!

Still Standing is the exciting first book in the Wild West MC Series from Kristen Ashely and it follows the story of Buck and Clara. Clara’s life has been anything but wonderful and when she thought she finally had something good, her world got turned upside down. Her current situation is anything but a dream and she finds herself living in the bad part of town, delivering messages for the wrong kind of man. And that’s how she finds herself tanged up Buck. You see, Clara is supposed to deliver a message to Buck, but once these two meet, all bets are off and Buck isn’t about to let Clara walk out of his life….

Still Standing was a thrilling and exciting read. I was hooked on Clara and Buck from their first interaction and couldn’t help but just devour this book. I loved Clara’s innocence, yet how brave she could be when she needed to. She was a terrific friend and had a big heart. Sure she didn’t always make the best decisions, but she’d give you the shirt off her back if she could. And then you’ve got Buck. Buck is the rough, tough president of the Aces High MC. His family and his brothers mean everything to him. He’s rough around the edges and doesn’t play games. He’s got a unique sweetness to him and isn’t the kind of man to give up easily. Buck and Clara are about as opposite as they could possibly be but are the couple you can’t help but find yourself rooting for.

Still Standing was a lot of fun to read and get swept up in. It definitely was rocking some serious Motorcycle Man vibes. From the awesome crew that was the Aces High MC, to badass biker babe makeovers and all kinds of drama, this book hit all the marks I was looking for in a KA novel. Yes, there were some frustrating moments and communication issues, but they always found a way to work past it and fight for what they wanted.

Still Standing kicks off the Wild West Series to one heck of a start. I’m already addicted to the players in this series and can not wait for more.

Excerpt

“Babe,” he growled.

A warning.

Definitely.

I’d gone too far.

I also didn’t care.

“Okay, so then does Tia have to sleep with one, or, say, all of your boys?”

“Don’t do that shit. You know that’s not what I’m talkin’ about.”

“So maybe you’ll explain what you’re talking about.”

“I would, you shut your trap.”

I shut my trap and stared at his shadowed head.

He stared at mine.

Then he muttered, “Christ, need my head examined.”

“You could get off me,” I reminded him.

“Is this shuttin’ your trap?”

I shut my trap again.

“You take of care my house and my business as well as me.”

“What does that mean?”

“That means you move outta the apartment before they kick your ass out. You move into my house. You keep it clean. You keep me fed, that is, when I’m not feedin’ you, and I like to cook, so mostly, I’ll be feedin’ you. You come to work with me and take care of the office, and you go home with me.”

Wow.

Was he serious?

That sounded like…it sounded like…

My God, it didn’t sound like a sex-for-safety arrangement.

It sounded like a relationship.

Review: Much Ado About You by Samantha Young

The cozy comforts of an English village bookstore open up a world of new possibilities for Evie Starling in this charming new romantic comedy from New York Times bestselling author Samantha Young.

At thirty-three-years old Evangeline Starling’s life in Chicago is missing that special something. And when she’s passed over for promotion at work, Evie realizes she needs to make a change. Some time away to regain perspective might be just the thing. In a burst of impulsivity, she plans a holiday in a quaint English village. The holiday package comes with a temporary position at Much Ado About Books, the bookstore located beneath her rental apartment. There’s no better dream vacation for the bookish Evie, a life-long Shakespeare lover.

Not only is Evie swept up in running the delightful store as soon as she arrives, she’s drawn into the lives, loves and drama of the friendly villagers. Including Roane Robson, the charismatic and sexy farmer who tempts Evie every day with his friendly flirtations. Evie is determined to keep him at bay because a holiday romance can only end in heartbreak, right? But Evie can’t deny their connection and longs to trust in her handsome farmer that their whirlwind romance could turn in to the forever kind of love.

MY REVIEW

“There are people you meet in life whom you just connect with.”

4.5 Sweet and Swoon-Worthy Stars!

Much Ado About You is the latest release from author Samantha Young. It follows the story of Evie and Roane. Evie is at a bit of a crossroads in life and feels as if all of her friends are moving on without her. After a failed date and change in her work status, Evie needs to escape it all. In an impulsive move, Evie books a once in a lifetime trip to Alnster. Evie hopes that this getaway will not only give her the peace she’s looking for, but to discover who she truly is….

Much Ado About You is a fun and enchanting read. I instantly fell in love with the scenery and town of Alnster. I loved how welcoming everyone was and how they made you feel like you knew them forever. And can we talk about Roane. Roane is the perfect man. He feels this intense connection to Evie and is determined to take whatever she is willing to give. What starts off as a beautiful friendship, quickly melds into something more. The banter and chemistry between Roane and Evie was fantastic. They were an easy couple to root for and they left you begging for more. The road to happily ever after wasn’t without a few bumps along the way, but as I said before, you can’t help but just love this couple and hope that everything will work out for them in the end.

Much Ado About You entertained me from the first page to the last. I loved the nods to Shakespeare and Evie’s love for the written word. I loved how comfortable the townsfolk of Alnster made Evie. I enjoyed watching Evie play matchmaker with certain members of the town, meddling in their lives for the greater good. I adored Roane and loved the way he just made me swoon. This book gave me everything I was hoping for and certainly gave me all of the feels.

If you’re looking for a sweet romance that will give you all the feels and that has just the right amount of drama, look no further. Much Ado About You is just the book you’re looking for. Samantha Young doesn’t disappoint.
