#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...

#FiveBlushReview ~~ The Close-Up by Kennedy Ryan

Rating: The Close-Up, an all-new moving second-chance novella set in the Hollywood Renaissance/HOOPS world from New York Times bestselling author Kennedy Ryan and 1,001 Dark Nights is available now! I met Nazareth Armstrong when I was eighteen years old. From the beginning, my brother warned me to stay away from him. Told Naz to stay away from me. Our hearts didn’t listen. I shared one magical night under the stars with my brother’s rival, thinking it was the start of a once-in-a-lifetime something. But one awful moment ended it all. Years later when we meet again, we’ve both pursued our...

#Review ~~ The Boy with the Bookstore

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. Max Boyson looks good…from a distance. But up close and personal, the tattooed hottie Joelle Prima has been crushing on for the past year and half has turned into the prime example of why you shouldn’t judge a book by his delectable cover. When she first learned about the massive renovation to the building they share, Joelle imagined that temporarily combining her Filipino...

Second to None by KA Linde

Second to None Coastal Chronicles #3 by K.A. Linde LOUISA’S 4 BLUSH REVIEW As always, KA Linde brings the angst to her story!  I love an angsty story that was delivered in Second to None; we were also given a slow burn, second chance romance. Josie and Maddox have known each other for years, and there has been some serious back and forth.  It’s never been the right time for them to be together. Circumstances bring them together in Savannah, and being in close proximity is just what these two needed to explore their relationship. Over the years, it’s just never...

Review ~~ Moody by Penelope Ward

Rating: Title: Moody Author: Penelope Ward Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance Release Date: August 22, 2022 Louisa 4.5 Blush Review I have always said that Penelope Ward is an author I will forever read, and this book is one of the reasons I keep coming back to Penelope’s books. Dax Moody is one of those characters that you will forever remember.  He’s a good guy, but he just doesn’t know it.  He’s been put in charge of his late wife’s son and has no idea how to be a Dad.  Growing up, he didn’t have a great role model.  But what...

Five Blush Review ~~ Loving Camilla by J. Lynn Bailey

Rating: Loving Camilla by J. Lynn Bailey   Tera’s 5 Blush Review I have to admit that this was my favorite book of the whole series. I suppose J. Lynn Bailey saved the best for last! This story won me over because of that heroine, Camilla. She is a complex character written to perfection. Those who love strong heroines, Camilla is your girl. I appreciated the different angles this story took. It was a “bigger picture” story that didn’t focus quite so much on the small town of Dillon Creek. In this series, you meet many characters, and Loving Camilla...

#ReleaseBlitz ~~ Until May by Aurora Rose Reynolds

Rating:   Title: Until May Series: Until Her #7 Author: Aurora Rose Reynolds Genre: Contemporary Romance Release Date: June 21, 2022 Stephanie’s 4.5 Blush Review Another fun and romantic poolside read by Aurora Rose Reynolds! Until May has everything I love about the “Until” Series; hot, sexy alpha males, intelligent females, chemistry, and lots of steam. Until May is the second generation of the “Until” series ~ Until Him/Until Her. The stories are interconnected but can be read as a standalone. I am a huge fan of the series. In the first generation, we learn about the famous “boom!” A moment where the Mayson men meet their...
