#NewReleaseAlert~~The Spark by Vi Keeland

Rating:   Title: The Spark Author: Vi Keeland Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance Release Date: July 12, 2021 Christina’s 4 Blush Review Gah! So good. The Spark is aptly titled since that is exactly what these two characters felt around each other. Sparks, energy, chemistry, heat. I really enjoyed this story. Not only was the hero a total sweat heart, but he had some swoon-worthy lines that made me melt into a puddle of mush. I mean a mushy, gooey pile of lovesick goo. See where I’m going with this? Autumn is a strong, independent and loyal heroine. She is at...

#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...

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...

#FiveBlushRead ~~ The Brit by Jodi Ellen Malpas

The BRIT by Jodi Ellen Malpas   Christina’s 5 DEEPLY EMOTIONAL Blush Review Wow! Just wow. The Brit is JEM’s darkest and most romantically violent book to date. At times shocking and hard to read, The Brit takes the reader on a twisted, murderous rampage through the dark mafia underworld staring a British mafia lord and the woman he takes prisoner. I can’t really put into words how much I liked this book despite how violent and gritty it was. There’s abuse, rape, an alpha hero with some unlikeable characteristics, a very broken and tormented heroine, and a whole lotta...

#Review ~~ Much Ado About You  by Samantha Young

Rating: Much Ado About You  by Samantha Young Christina’s 4 Blush Review This is my first Samantha Young book! How and WHY did I wait so long to read this author? I honestly could not be more excited to have found a new-to-me author with tons of books to power through. Much Ado About You was adorable and sweet, with moments of steamy swoonyness that had me fanning my kindle to cool it off!My favorite parts of this story centered around the English Village and bookstore that are front center. It’s been a really long time since I read a...

#Reviews #ParanormalRomance ~~ Layla by Colleen Hoover

Rating: Layla Colleen Hoover Alex’s 5 Blush Review Layla was the first book I’ve read by Colleen Hoover, who I’ve heard so many good things about, so I had some pretty high expectations. I am so happy to say that I was not disappointed at all and loved this book! Reading about Layla, Leeds, and Willow kept me on my toes because I was never sure what was going to happen next. Layla and Leeds were both so (rightfully) erratic throughout the story that I never knew how they were going to react to anything. I enjoyed how Layla was written, with...

Review Tour ~~ The Invitation by Vi Keeland

Rating:   Title: The Invitation Author: Vi Keeland Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance Release Date: January 18, 2021 Christina’s 4.5 Blush Review Starting 2021 off with a BANG! LOVED THIS BOOK! The Invitation by Vi Keeland was exactly what I needed to restore my faith in the idea that 2021 WILL be better than 2020. Ha! Stella and Hudson just might be one of the best couples I’ve read in a loooooong time. There is very little petty or immature nonsense between the two of them. There’s wit and banter, and some mild angst in the beginning. But once they get...

Blog Tour ~~ Forsaken Trail by Devney Perry

Rating: Forsaken Trail by Devney Perry is now live! Aria Saint-James has planned the perfect getaway: sweatpants, takeout and two weeks alone with her sister and nephew. Nowhere on that list is wearing a low-cut dress and uncomfortable heels to attend a wedding where she knows neither the bride nor the groom. Toss in her nemesis, Brody Carmichael, and her road trip to Arizona is officially a bust. But at least there is champagne. She blames the bubbly for falling into bed with Brody that night. Enemy or no, the billionaire is irresistible in a tux. But after their one-night...
