The Summer Book Club by Susan Mallery

Susan Mallery does it again, with her trio of friends and their singular problems and issues. Enjoyed this book immensely and there is a link to another Mallery series. All three friends have to face and work together towards finding solutions and moving forward to reach resolutions. Well written and a great vacation/beach read. Do not miss this one.

Journey to Faithful by Anna Bishop Barker

 

 

Excellent, heartbreaking and heartfelt story. With true bad guys and instant attraction between Laura and Jake. There are places that hurt and much steam, so adults only. Anna Bishop Barker is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors.

Savor It by Tarah DeWitt


Loved this book! The story was a fun, moving romance and definitely an adult read. Loved the well written detail and no silly teen angst (well, sure from the actual teen). A definite addition to your TBR list, do not miss this one!

Juicy Pickle by JJ Knight

Another fun pickled romance. Had a great time with this story. So much going on, yet the twist was not unexpected, and the outcome is as expected. A great time was had by all, in spite of the stormy weather, or maybe because of it? A great addition to this series, a definite addition to your TBR collection.

Rule #1: Don’t fall in love with the groom

 

Stalker exes. Momzillas. Drunk uncles. Hurricanes. Jealous siblings. Paparazzi.

 

You name it, Kari Whitevelt has seen it all.

 

And that’s why brides and grooms hire her.

 

Because she makes it all go away.

 

Wedding Protectors, Inc., is here to make sure that special day stays special.

 

Whatever it takes.

 

No matter what.

 

But when her newest client turns out to be her own long-lost high school sweetheart, rising tech star billionaire Caleb Mikelmas, suddenly Kari’s not sure whether she’s protecting the wedding couple —

 

Or her own heart.

 

Tech billionaire Caleb never thought he had a chance, much less a second chance with his first love and high school sweetheart, Kari. When a case of mistaken identity turns their reunion into one big misunderstanding, unraveling his feelings about the one who got away while supporting his brother’s nuptials means facing old demons.

 

And kissing Kari.

 

He likes kissing Kari far more than that whole demon thing.

 

But if kisses were enough, Kari would already be his wife.

 

Maybe it’s time to revisit the past and right some wrongs.

 

One vow at a time.

Low key, dry reading experience. Could not get into the story. Ok read, just disappointed. Others may enjoy this book, it was not one of my favorite reads.

Love, Just In by Natalie Murray



Two besties, find each other but not without drama and angst. Good read, a little silly angst, even with the health scare. The HEA is there, it took several diverse paths. Good read.

Above ‘N’ Beyond by Tee O’Fallon

Sorry to see the end of this series, this last book is now my favorite. We meet Bella and Jamie, who are battling the same issues, in opposing directions. Action, steam, romance and of course Jax, along with his new sidekick, Gnocchi, make this storyline so special. Do not miss this newest by Tee O’Fallon.
