Latest Top Recommendations
The perfect balance of angst, heart, and headboard-rattling sex, I was utterly besotted by these characters from the get-go, and even struck on several occasions by HOW MUCH I felt everything they were feeling, how in sync I was with their every emotion. Stir a quirky, fun-loving, bold, yet inherently vulnerable leading lady with a well-mannered, compassionate, true Southern gentleman, add a jilted groom scenario and a dash of dirty bedroom talk into the mix, and you have the makings of one of the most moving friends-to-lovers romances I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading.
For a very long time after first reading this book, I didn’t know how to talk about it without bursting into tears, the sharp sting of some of those pages never fading, never losing its devastating bite. It was one of the most harrowing yet emotionally rewarding books to get through—parts of it incredibly painful to process, while others had me smiling through my tears—but from the very beginning, I also knew that I was holding in my hands one of the most important books I’ll ever read. Kennedy Ryan delivers a tour-de-force novel that not only showcases her knack for incorporating a subtle but persistent thread of social commentary running through her stories, but she also takes the reader on an unflinching descent into the hidden, dark reality that so many women must survive daily.
From the moment I read the blurb, I simply couldn’t ‘one-click’ this book fast enough. It’s the kind of book you find yourself reading every chance you get, desperate to absorb every word, every feeling, every thrill, and before you know it, it’s 3.30am when you’re finally turning the last page. This second chance romance is incredibly multilayered, as deeply romantic as it is suspenseful, and while it explores complex human conditions that are heartbreaking at times, it nonetheless leaves you feeling uplifted and smiling like a fool. It was truly one of the BEST books I’ve ever read—infused with SO MUCH emotion, and told with heartbreakingly beautiful language and empathy—and I honestly cannot recommend it highly enough.
From the moment I opened this book, I got this fluttery feeling in my stomach, telling me I was in for quite a treat. Superbly written, deeply affecting, and deliciously angsty, this was the perfect melding of escapist make-believe with truths from our own reality, creating a timeless love story of a prince falling for a commoner that will steal your sleep and feed your soul. SIX STARS!
What a thrill ride this has been! Beautifully written and wildly exhilarating, this action-packed second chance romance—set in the dangerous criminal underworld of kingpins, mobsters, and professional con artists—had me on the edge of my seat until the very end. With my knee bouncing with both anxiety and anticipation, I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough, desperate to piece together a story that is bursting at the seams with complex subplots and unexpected twists and turns, whilst still being infused with the kind of emotional intensity and strong romantic element I’ve come to expect from Rachel Higginson.
The beauty of Jewel E. Ann’s writing and the detail with which she renders her characters took my breath away time and time again, weaving a story that is sexy, funny, sad, and everything in between, and entirely impossible to put down. It’s a story of opposites attracting, of second chances at finding love and happiness, of forgiveness, of family bonds, of pet rats, of life giving us exactly what we need even when we don’t think we’re ready or deserving of it, and while it might have been my first time reading this author, I am now the proud owner of her entire back catalogue.
There’s something infinitely romantic about the notion of a great love surviving beyond death, of two soulmates finding a way back to one another even after one of them crosses over to the great beyond, and J.T. Geissinger’s latest offering is a true gift to romantics everywhere. Told with soulful prose and empathy, this is a tale of loss, grief, hope, destiny, and above all, love—undefeatable, everlasting love. It’s a powerful, poignant story that stays with you long after you’ve read it, and keeps popping into your mind when you least expect it.
It’s not every day that you find a book that affects you so deeply and so completely that you’re not really sure how to process anything else for a while, let alone move on from it, so when it happens, the only thing you can do is immediately flip back to the beginning and start again. A powerful story that both moved and enraptured me—beautifully written and infused with the perfect mix of emotion and steam—this book was absolutely everything I didn’t know I was looking for when I randomly picked it from an endless lineup of possibilities, quickly becoming a truly unforgettable reading experience.
After falling in love with The Highwayman, I simply could not wait to read Christopher Argent’s story, and unsurprisingly, I was enthralled from the very first page. The story of a ruthless assassin who falls for the woman he was paid to kill in cold blood, this is the kind of book that makes you want to shut out the world around you and escape into it with no interruptions.
