Juniper Hill (The Edens #2) by Devney Perry




Memphis Ward arrives in Quincy, Montana, on the fifth worst day of her life. She needs a shower. She needs a snack. She needs some sanity. Because moving across the country with her newborn baby is by far the craziest thing she’s ever done.

But maybe it takes a little crazy to build a good life. If putting the past behind her requires a thousand miles and a new town, she’ll do it if it means a better future for her son. Even if it requires setting aside the glamour of her former life. Even if it requires working as a housekeeper at The Eloise Inn and living in an apartment above a garage.

It’s there, on the fifth worst day of her life, that she meets the handsomest man she’s ever laid eyes on. Knox Eden is a beautiful, sinful dream, a chef and her temporary landlord. With his sharp, stubbled jaw and tattooed arms, he’s raw and rugged and everything she’s never had—and never will. Because after the first worst day of her life, Memphis learned a good life requires giving up on her dreams too. And a man like Knox Eden will only ever be a dream.

I never get tired of reading a Devney Perry book and the Edens series just continues to pull you into the lives of Quincy, Montana! 

Memphis Ward is probably one of my favorite characters. She's been broken by the people who is supposed to love her, but she never gives up on herself and her baby boy, Drake. Memphis rolls into Montana with barely nothing. She's been offered a job at the Eloise hotel and Eloise Eden has taken upon herself to offer her brother Knox's loft for Memphis to live.

Knox Eden needs and wants his space - so when the beautiful Memphis and her son moves into his apartment loft, he isn't sure how to deal with it. But as he gets involves with Memphis and Drake, Knox ends up knocking his own walls down to let them in. 

What I love about this series is the close-knit family of the Edens and the small-town romance that each of the siblings find. I can't wait until more in this series and Talia is up next!

Baden (Pittsburgh Titans #1) by Sawyer Bennet



After suffering a horrific injury that threatens to end his career, Baden Oulett is about to learn that sometimes a fresh start is just what the doctor ordered.


I worked my whole life to achieve one goal—play professional hockey. As part of the defending Cup champion Arizona Vengeance, I was living my dream until one split second decision destroyed it all. Instead of lacing up my skates and hitting the ice, I’ve spent my days in rehab and physical therapy just so I could walk again. When a coaching opportunity with the Pittsburgh Titans is presented to me, I find myself with a career I had never considered but which allows me to continue being part of the sport that I love.

While my injuries are physical, the same can’t be said for the woman I rescued. Suffering from wounds that can’t be seen, Sophie Winters has withdrawn from the world in fear and guilt. I didn’t know Sophie before that fateful night and have only met her once since, but I refuse to let her face her demons alone. Determined to be a friend, I support Sophie in the only way I know how… by simply being there.

Through our shared trauma, Sophie and I begin to find peace within one another. As we grow closer, what started as friendship becomes more intimate until our broken pieces become one. But can a love born of anguish endure, or will the pain of our past prove too much to overcome?

New Release: Code Name: Disavowed by Sawyer Bennett

Their engagement ended more than a decade ago, but the heart never forgets true love. Code Name: Disavowed is a second chance romantic suspense standalone, available now from New York Times 
Bestselling Author Sawyer Bennett!


Life works in mysterious ways. Jameson Force Security has just received notice of a disavowed CIA agent in need of rescue in Central America. My blood runs cold when I learn that agent is none other than Greer Hathaway—my former fiancée.

Having gone our separate ways more than a decade ago, I still have bitter feelings toward Greer and the demise of our relationship. Those feelings don’t change the fact that I loved her more than anything, so I’m on the next flight out to embark on a rescue mission. Besides, Greer once saved my life, so now it’s time to return the favor and put her firmly in my past.

Face-to-face for the first time since ending our engagement, Greer and I are left with not only anger, unanswered questions and regrets, but also the undeniable chemistry we apparently still have. Will the promise of a new future together be enough, or will the same obstacles tear us apart again?

Dream Keeper (#4) by Kristen Ashley

Spinning off from the bestselling Dream Man and Rock Chick series, this is the emotional and steamy contemporary romance fans of the Dream Team series have been waiting for!




Pepper Hannigan is determined to keep any romance off the table—and out of her bedroom—while her daughter Juno is still young. Sure, a certain handsome commando is thoughtful, funny, and undeniably hot, but Pepper’s had her heart broken before, and she won’t let it happen again. Not to her or her little girl, even if this hero could melt any woman’s resolve.

Augustus “Auggie” Hero can’t deny his attraction to beautiful, warm-hearted Pepper or how much he wants to make a home with her and her little girl, but Pepper’s mixed signals have kept him away. That is, until Juno decides to play matchmaker. Her efforts finally bring Pepper into his arms, but they expose the danger Pepper is in. To protect Pepper and Juno, Auggie will have to live up to his last name and prove happy endings aren’t just for fairy tales.

4 Stars

I say this every time I finish a Kristen Ashley book...I LOVE IT. There's something about this author's storytelling that really sucks you in. She makes you fall for every character and trickles in past characters who you loved earlier in the series and you just can't get enough!

Auggie and Pepper have an undeniable attraction, but she's been hesitant to move anything forward with him. Even with her daughter, Juno, and Pepper's friends push for it. But when Pepper finds herself in trouble with her estranged family and some questionable people, Auggie steps in to protect her and Juno. 

Dream Keeper is the typical KA book where the Alpha male comes swooping in the save his woman from trouble and crazy antics caused by her and friends. It's why I love reading these books! It's filled with steamy and sweet moments and a lot of twists and turns and danger.

Heard It in a Love Song by Tracey Garvis Graves




Layla Hilding is thirty-five and recently divorced. Struggling to break free from the past—her glory days as the lead singer in a band and a ten-year marriage to a man who never put her first—Layla’s newly found independence feels a lot like loneliness.

Then there’s Josh, the single dad whose daughter attends the elementary school where Layla teaches music. Recently separated, he’s still processing the end of his twenty-year marriage to his high school sweetheart. He chats with Layla every morning at school and finds himself thinking about her more and more.

Equally cautious and confused about dating in a world that favors apps over meeting organically, Layla and Josh decide to be friends with the potential for something more. Sounds sensible and way too simple—but when two people are on the rebound, is it heartbreak or happiness that’s a love song away?

From the bestselling author of The Girl He Used to Know comes a love song of a story about starting over and second chances.

3.5 Stars

Heard It in a Love Song is a low-drama romance, that is sweet all around. It's all about finding trust and love again after failed marriages. 

Layla left her marriage after realizing that her ex is someone who mentally knocked her down and she knew she could move on her own. Layla deserved so much more. Josh is now a single dad after realizing his long-time marriage has changed over time. He married young and they just grew apart. 

I really enjoyed how this book is written - it takes you present and then to the past to get the backstory of each characters.
