#FiveBlushRead ~~ Malibu Rising by Taylor Jenkins Reid

Rating: Louisa’s 5 Blush Review Taylor Jenkins Reid is an author that is quickly becoming one of my favorites.  Her writing style is so unique and always so engaging.  I listened to Daisy Jones and the Six on audible and it’s one of my all-time favorites.  I found while reading that book (and this book) that TJR writes so well that I literally googled Daisy Jones and the Six to see if they were a real band in the ’70s!  I felt the same way while reading this book. This family was so real in my mind that I wanted...

#AudibleReview #FiveBlushListen ~~ One Last Stop by Casey McQuiston

Rating:   ONE LAST STOP BY Casey McQuiston Louisa’s 5 Blush Audible Review I had the chance to listen to this audible via NetGalley and I am so glad I did.  I read Red, White, and Royal Blue after hearing such amazing reviews of the book.  Not my typical romance.  I have read a few m/m romances and absolutely was enlightened to see that guess what?  Male/Male romance books are not different from Male/Female romances!  Duh! One Last Stop is a female/female love story and once again, new to me, and once again – I LOVED it! Not only was...

Release Blitz & Five Blush Review ~~ For Lucy by Jewel E Ann

Louisa’s 5 Blush Review Seriously Jewel E Ann?  Can you just stop making me cry like a little bitch?  Just kidding – I love reading a book that just pulls me in and rips my heart out, stomps on it, and then slowly but surely puts it back together.  That sounds somewhat crazy to like something like that but I did. I found this book to be the most beautiful display of fatherly love.  Emmett does the ultimate sacrifice – he loves his daughter more than his wife, just as she asks, and in return loses his family.  You will...

#FiveBlushReview ~~ That Summer by Jennifer Weiner

Christina’s 5 Poignant Blush Review That Summer by Jennifer Weiner deserves to hold the prominent book slot in your beach tote this summer, but it is so much more than a beach read. In between glimpses of warm summer fun and delicious food, Weiner gently exposes the perverse and over-indulgent underbelly of wealthy, privileged prep school good old boys (just being boys), and the unsuspecting girls whose lives they irrevocably changed. Diana and Daisy are each in their own right, phenomenal characters with relatable experiences and viewpoints, who have led very different lives but somehow end up needing each other...

#FiveBlushReview ~~ The Seat Filler by Sariah Wilson

Louisa’s 5 Blush Review What an absolutely delightful read this was.  I read it in less than 24 hours and NO REGRETS that I may not have fed my family frozen pizza and french fries. Juliet is quirky, a bit neurotic, and a good human!  She’s doing a friend a solid by being a seat filler, it’s not something she wants to do but to help her bestie impress her future mother-in-law – she does it.  She’s faced with her long-time, childhood crush as a seat filler, and the shenanigans begin! Noah isn’t all that the world sees and his...

Release Blitz & FIVE Blush Review ~~ From The Embers by Aly Martinez

Our love was born from the embers, and together we would go up in flames. From The Embers, an all-new standalone catastrophic romance from USA Today bestselling author Aly Martinez is available now! CHRISTINA’S 5 BLUSH REVIEW WOW! Truly. Just, wow. What a story! Ms. Martinez has outdone herself in From the Embers, a slow-burn, single-dad, single-mom sort of enemies to lovers romance. There is a really gorgeous love story here, jam packed with all the feels and some swoon worthy moments as well. But the real tipping point into the 5 Star category for me came in the plot...

Release Blitz & Five Blush Review ~~ Grayson’s Way by Lisa Eugene

  Title: Grayson’s Way Series: Forever Love #2 Author: Lisa Eugene Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance Release Date: April 23, 2021 Louisa’s 5 Blush Review From the moment I saw that Lisa Eugene was writing another book about Grayson I knew I had to read it Grayson (which came out in 2014) was a book that has stuck with me for a long time.  How can a writer entertain you and teach you all at the same time? Lisa Eugene gave us the most unlikeliest hero in Grayson.  A man suffering from schizophrenia.  I think most of us have a perception...
