Blog Tour, Excerpt & Review ~~ Hate the Player by Max Monroe

Rating: I hate him. I want him. He’s a jerk. A player. Addicting. Trouble. Hate the Player, a slow burn and hilarious romantic comedy from New York Times bestselling author Max Monroe is available now! Louisa’s 4 Blush Review There is one thing I can say about Max Monroe books…they are consistent.  Consistently funny, consistently entertaining, consistently easy, fun reads!  Hate the Player is consistent with the above. Birdie and Andrew were great together…even when they weren’t “together”.  They played so well of each other.  Their love/hate relationship had the “fine line” we often hear about.  One moment Birdie couldn’t...

Review ~~ Defining the Rules by Mariah Dietz

Rating: Defining the Rules by Mariah Dietz LOUISA’S 4.5 BLUSH REVIEW The Dating Playbook series by Mariah Dietz is giving me all the feels! Arlo and Olivia’s story is Defining the Rules is book 3 in the series.  It can absolutely be read as a stand-alone but I am a purest…I love reading series – in orders. Bending the Rules & Breaking the Rules were both books about Lincoln and Raegan – a brother’s best friend love story.  We met Arlo in those books and I just KNEW he would have his own story and I would love it. Defining...

Rating: BLOG TOUR BOURBON NIGHTS by Shari J. Ryan Release Date: July 20, 2020 Cover Design: MadHat Studios Photographer: Reggie Deanching – R+M Photography Model: Aidan Stewart Genre: Contemporary Romance   Louisa’s 4 Blush Review I am not always a fan of a complete book for another POV but when Shari J. Ryan is writing…I am reading. Brett and Melody’s story was book one in the series but Melody’s point of view.  I loved the story then so I knew this one would be just as good (Bourbon Love Notes review). Seeing the thoughts that Brett has from the moment he...

Rating:   The Breaking Season: An Arranged Marriage Romance by K.A. Linde A sexy stand alone arranged marriage romance from USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde… I signed on the dotted line.

#ReviewTour #EnemiesToLovers ~~ The Rivals by Vi Keeland

Rating:   Title: The Rivals Author: Vi Keeland Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance Release Date: July 13, 2020 Louisa’s 4 Blush Review From the moment these two see each other on the plane ride to NYC, the sparks fly.  The enemies to lover is no joke with these two.  The hatred between their families has spilled over to these two but with them -the fine line between love and hate is oh-so thin. I loved the push and the pull between Sophie and Weston.  I loved how Weston could be such a smart ass but also a sweet guy.  The back...

#Review ~~ One to Watch by Kate Stayman-London

Rating: One to Watch by Kate Stayman-London  Louisa’s 4.5 Blush Review This book was fantastic! I always love a plus-sized heroine and I Bea was the perfect girl to bring this book to life. To be honest – I CAN NOT watch the Bachelor or Bachelorette in real life because it’s just too…ick…for me. How do people “claim” they love someone after just a few weeks? And I know a lot of it is all staged for the drama and I just feel so awkward when they are sent home and just…yick. BUT, One to Watch didn’t give me those...

Rating: Title: Am I the Only One Author: E.K. Blair Genre: Thriller/Romantic Suspense Release Date: July 10, 2020 LOUISA’S 5 BLUSH REVIEW My first suspense book I ever read I think was BANG! by E.K. Blair and I have been waiting for another suspense from her to give me the same feels…you know – the “WTF did I just read” feel. For me, the barometer for a good suspense book is exactly that…what did I just read? What just happened? A mind fuck essentially and E.K. Blair delivered it with Am I The Only One.  I went into it blind...

Rating: Fortuity, an all-new inspirational and moving standalone contemporary romance from Wall Street Journal bestselling author Jewel E. Ann, is available now! Louisa’s 5 Blush Review I don’t even think I have the ability to write the words for my love of this book.  The third in the Transcend Series by Jewel E. Ann was more than I could have ever asked for. Jewel E. Ann is one of the authors who I have just found in the past year or so and I just can’t say enough about her writing, her characters, and her brilliant storytelling. This book runs...
