#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...

#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...

#AudibleReview ~~ The Bodyguard by Katherine Center

Rating:   Louisa’s 4 Blush Review My first book by this author and surely not my last! I listened to the audible (thank you @NetGalley and @macmillan.audio for the chance to listen early!  If you are a romance reader you have read this trope before – superstar falls in love with their bodyguard but Katherine Center did it a little differently and it’s probably why I enjoyed this so much! Hannah is the Executive Protection Agent (bodyguard) and Jack Stapelton is the superstar!  Hannah’s character is strong, determined, and a bit of a badass.  She’s had a tough time personally...
