Lindsey's Review ~ The Bones of Our Fathers by Elin Gregory

The Bones of Our FathersThe Bones of Our Fathers by Elin Gregory
My rating: 4 of 5 stars


This was a great comfort read. It was a story that the reader could get lost in and not come up until the end.

The author's writing was really captivating and led me on the ride with Malcom and Rob. This was a great love story that just took me on a whole different journey. Malcom and Rob were great characters that didn’t lack anything. The writing was great, the characters great, and the plot exciting.

This is a great book that will make the reader fall in love with the characters. Love is a great thing and sometime the circumstances are not perfect but the people are and these two were perfect for each other. This was a book I was happy I had the chance to read but I enjoyed it. This author has made my list of must reads because if this is what she puts out I need more.

Shy's Review ~ Mercy by Debra Anastasia

MercyMercy by Debra Anastasia
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book hit me and it hit me hard. I was only about 10 percent in when I knew I was hooked. The more I read on the more the point hit home for me. And by the end I knew I had read something that would linger with me for a while to come. Debra Anastasia just gained a new fan.

The synopsis of this book gave me just enough to get my interest, but nothing more. So I didn't really know what I was getting myself into. But my blank slate going in quickly morphed into me loving these characters and all their damage. I loved the friends that made up the secondary characters. And I just loved how I never wanted to put this book down.

This is one I would recommend to any dark romance fans and I am so happy to have gotten the chance to experience this new to me author.

Shy's Review ~ Hollywood Scandal by Louise Bay

Hollywood ScandalHollywood Scandal by Louise Bay
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

As a fan of this author I expected to enjoy the book, and I'm so happy to find that she did not disappoint. This story has all the elements I've come to look forward to and appreciate from this author. The charismatic alpha male who's very secure in himself but maybe not so good at relationships. The leading lady who, while she may not always be as secure in herself due to past or current circumstances, isn't looking for the new man in her life to give her validation. The supporting characters that you can take an interest in and help make the story even more enjoyable. I ended up hoping that one of those supporting characters gets their own story down the road. All of that is what I have come to expect from this author, and it is exactly what I got .

This was a very well written book that has a nice easy to read flow. It was so easy to just get caught up in it and lose time in your reading enjoyment. I love a nice Hollywood romance and if you're a fan of Louise Bay or contemporary romance, this is one I would recommend.

Erin's Review ~ The Beauty of Us by Kristen Proby

The Beauty of Us (Fusion, #4)The Beauty of Us by Kristen Proby
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I am absolutely loving the ladies of this series. Proby has given as some of the most capable, driven, and intelligent women I've read. These character driven stories are a great mix of work and play. I love seeing them in their element, doing what they love. The relationship side of the story opens them up even more to us, giving us a complete picture. I can't get enough.

Riley and Trevor, oh boy *fans self*. Those two had chemistry that was off the charts! They were just so perfect for one another. I loved how they complimented one another so well. Watching them grow closer to one another and really develop as a couple was fun to see. It was interesting the way they reacted to situations and dealt with the stresses of their lives and relationship.

I was surprised to find that some of the drama felt a bit forced. That being said, it did add a new dimension to the story. This aspect created a feeling of frustration and concern in me. I found myself flying through the pages to see how things would be dealt with. Other areas such as distance and working relationship felt more organic, fit the story, and were easier for me to relate to. While I wasn't always happy with what was going on, I was focused and engaged, desperate to see how things would turn out.

Proby is one of my favorite authors. I can't help but get lost in everything she writes. On top of giving us a captivating story with The Beauty of Us, she did an amazing job setting up the next book in the series. I am dying to find out what is going to happen!!

Chicks Dig the Accent
by Roxanne D. Howard
Genre: NA Romance, Modern Day Fairytale

Molly Ivers has always known she’d marry a foreign man with a delicious accent. Six months ago, in a night of unbridled passion, Molly gave her virginity to her friend and sexy-as-can-be neighbor, rocker Evan Castle. Unfortunately, thanks to his swarm of constant groupies, things didn’t work out, but they remained friends.

She’s had a crush on Nicholas Sullivan, her British professor, for as long as she can remember. So when opportunity comes knocking to spice up her appearance in the form of a French life coach, she hires Jean Luc Dubois to help her let her hair down and become more Parisian and hip to reflect the person she is within.

Cover Reveal ~ Deadly Confections by SE Babin

Title: Deadly Confections (Bloom & Gloom Mysteries #1) 
Author: S.E. Babin 
Genre: Cozy Mystery 
Release Date: August 29, 2017 
Cover Designer: Viola Estrella
Hosted by: Buoni Amici Press, LLC. 

Life wasn’t all that great when you were dead.

Piper was the head baker of Secret Confections in the scorching hot small Texas town of Babylon. Or...at least she was until she died. Struck by one of her own out of control cupcake trucks, Piper’s soul left her body and managed to somehow find its way into Purgatory. Turned out, the waiting room for Heaven and Hell was a small, invisible town in Texas.

Just her luck. She’d always wanted to leave Texas and ended up being stuck there for the rest of her afterlife.

But things weren’t all bad. She has a new bakery and new semi-kind of life. Until a guy rushes into her shop and dies right on top of her brand new ceramic floor.

Which might not have been that bad until he uttered the one word that was instant death to the livelihood of a baker with a brand new business.

USA Today Bestselling author S.E. Babin has a passion for writing books with a paranormal twist. Whether it's romance or mystery, she loves taking the norm and turning it into the extraordinary. Her love of reading turned into a curious exploration to see whether or not she could write her own novel. Beginning with discarded pages of angsty novels and a slightly popular reimagining of Beowulf's Grendel in her high school English class, Sheryl spent way too much time in the library, killing any chance of her becoming a cheerleader or anything even remotely cool.

Alas, there aren't a great number of heiresses willing to marry a rogue of no particular fortune---luckily, if there is ever a gentleman capable of melting a lady's chilly heart, it's Owen.

But when the ton's most notorious rogue mistakenly makes his way into her bedchambers, Milly finds herself unexpectedly and unwillingly at the altar . . . Yet the more time she spends with her new husband, the more Milly starts to wonder if the marriage she never wanted may be the best thing that's ever happened to her.
