#AudibleReview #FiveBlushReview ~~ Maggie Moves On by Lucy Score

Rating: Maggie Moves On  by Lucy Score, Emma Wilder (Narrator) Louisa’s 5 Blush Audible Review  My first Lucy Score book, and I listened to the Audible!  In the middle of listening, I went to Amazon and got another Lucy Score book because I love this author’s writing.  Buyer beware – it’s written in 3rd person, which isn’t my favorite, but OMG, Maggie and Silas were AH-MAZ-ING!! Silas, the hot landscaper, is remarkable.  Many might find him a bit pushy and presumptuous, but I loved that he KNEW that he and Maggie were meant to be and never lost sight of that.  Maggie...

This friendship morphs more slowly, but it was the perfect amount of slow burn. Merricks...

#Review ~~ On One Condition (S.I.N. #2) by K. Bromberg 

Rating: On One Condition (S.I.N. #2) by K. Bromberg    Louisa’s 4.5 Blush Review  Oh, these Sharpe boys get better and better with each book!  K. Bromberg’s S.I.N. series is exactly what this reader loves about romance. Ledger is the oldest Sharpe brother, the one their father expected the most from, the one he groomed to take over.  Their father wasn’t the best man, and when it came to Asher, it was evident. Ledger and Asher met as teenagers, spending summers together and experiencing their firsts together until Ledger’s father intervened. I LOVE LOVE LOVE a second chance romance and...

#FiveBlushReview ~~ Lizzie Blake’s Best Mistake by Mazey Eddings

Rating: Lizzie Blake’s Best Mistake by Mazey Edding I read Mazey Edding’s first book, A Brush with Love, and found a new author to love.  She’s local to me, and that, for some reason, makes me like her even more! I was so excited to see that Lizzie was getting her own book, as I loved her in A Brush with Love. Lizzie is a unique character, but honestly, IRL, she’s like many of us.  Maybe a bit too loud, talk too much, and is a bit scattered at times.  As a mother of a child with ADD, I can...

Rating: The Boy With the Bookstore When a baker meets the bookshop owner of her dreams, and he turns into her nemesis, they’ll both have to read between the lines to avoid a career-ending recipe for disaster.
