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...

Rating:   THAT SWOONY FEELING (Getting Lucky #4) by Meghan Quinn Release Date: August 6th   Louisa’s 4 Blush Review That Swoony feeling may be my favorite one from this series (which I have loved).  This series brings me to one of my happy places.  This book takes place in a small, beach town in Maine (in my mind it’s a small beach town in NJ).   The Knightly family owns the Lobster Landing, a local fudge shop in Port Snow (for me it’s James Fudge shop in Sea Isle City).  Only thing different?  No hot Knightly sons at their shop!...

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...
