It could also be the sugar rush from all the chocolate I find myself eating while reading her books, but whenever I finish one of Nalini Singh’s soul-stirring romances, my heart is so full, it feels like it could burst. Her stories are so warm and romantic, they soothe and reenergise the hopeless romantic in me—moving me, seducing me, making me devour every single word like a luscious dessert, and always leaving me in a blissful haze—making this the kind of book I am ALWAYS in the mood for!


I was in another book slump—another aftermath of too many great books read in a row—so I dove into the never-ending pit of goodness that is my TBR list and picked an “oldie” that I’ve had on my Kindle for a while and which I had no doubt would be just what I needed. It was everything I knew it would be—emotional, sexy, heartwarming, and beautifully written. I found myself frantically highlighting so many passages. It’s technically motorcycle club-themed, but very lightly. Angsty, funny, (did I mention) oh-so sexy, this book is the full package and I ADORED every single word.


A compelling, uplifting, truly beautiful tale of two people finding exactly what they always needed when they least expected it, this book sank its hooks into my heart from the start, and I absolutely adored every minute of the emotional journey it took me on. Kristen Ashley is a master at weaving just the kind of perfect chemistry between her characters that makes the reader party to that magic, feeling, marvelling, aching, breathing their every emotion.


Exquisitely written and utterly unique, this is the touching tale of two broken people—a young man who refuses to forget what love felt like, and a young woman who forces herself not to remember—and their journey of healing. Their story stole my heart, even ripped it out of my chest a time or two, yet I knew from the very first page that this would become one the most devastatingly romantic books I’d ever read. And it quickly became my new favourite from this author.


In this modern retelling of Beauty and The Beast, J.T. Geissinger brings a timeless and well-loved fairy tale to life with the rich setting of New Orleans as its backdrop, and its culinary delights as its romantic ambiance. This is the kind of book you read in one sitting and then wish you could immediately read all over again, because every single page makes your heart happy and greedy for more. A delightful must-read.


A heartwarming second chance romance where a strings-free summer fling between two strangers ends up with a surprise pregnancy that changes both their lives. This wonderful story is speckled with so many heart-melting moments, I fell in love with every single word in it and have already re-read it multiple times.


I can’t remember the last time I stayed awake until sunrise because I couldn’t put a book down, but this deliciously addictive, toe-curling tale of forbidden love was exactly what I needed at a time when no other book was hitting the right spot. One of the best age-gap romances I’ve ever come across, every aspect of this story was executed with breathtaking perfection, the author’s confident prose and her deep understanding of her characters turning a potentially unsurprising scenario into one of the most riveting books I’ve read of late. With a single-dad cherry on top.


One of the most outstanding and truly unforgettable books I’ve EVER read, this tender coming of age tale took my breath away, and to say I loved it would be a gross understatement. Exquisitely written, and laced with immeasurable amounts of heart and truth, this book perfectly captures the intensity and angst of teenage love, while relaying a message that is SO powerful and relevant, it moved me to tears too many times to count. A genuine masterpiece that should be read by absolutely EVERYONE. SIX STARS!

Fifteen years ago I met Sayer Wesley. I fell in love with him. I promised I would never leave him. I swore nothing could break us apart.

Five years ago I broke my promise. I ran away. I took the one secret that could destroy us both and disappeared.

Five days ago I thought I saw him.

I knew it was impossible. Sayer was locked away, serving a deserved sentence in federal prison. He couldn’t find me.

He wouldn’t find me. I was too good at hiding. Too good at surviving.

Because if Sayer ever found me, there would be hell to pay for a plethora of sins. The worst of which, he didn’t even know about.

Five hours ago, I told myself I was crazy.

Five minutes ago, I saw him again.

Five seconds ago, I was too late.

This is the first book in a brand new romantic suspense duet.

What makes you happy?

That was the question Emery Reed asked me the day we met, and I couldn’t give him a single answer. I could have said my dog, or my books, or yoga — but I just stared.

And then, I got in his car.

It was crazy to take a road trip with a stranger, but after years of standing still, he was my one-way ticket to a new life, and I wasn’t going to miss it.

We shared the same space, the same car, the same hotel room — and still, we were strangers. One day we’d be laughing, the next, we wouldn’t speak. Emery was surrounded by impenetrable walls, but I wanted in.

Discovering his journal changed everything.

I read his thoughts, words not meant for anyone’s eyes, and the more I learned about him, the harder I fell. It turned out nothing made Emery Reed happy, and I wanted to change that.

I earned his trust by violating his privacy, and as wrong as it was, it worked — until one entry revealed a darkness I never knew existed, a timer I never knew was ticking.

Suddenly, what made me happy was saving Emery from himself. I just didn’t know if I could.
