TOP RECOMMENDATION | FRIENDS TO LOVERS
Just friends. Just friends. Just friends. If they repeat it enough, maybe it’ll be true.
Hazel Camille Bradford knows she’s a lot to take—and frankly, most men aren’t up to the challenge. If her army of pets and thrill for the absurd don’t send them running, her lack of filter means she’ll say exactly the wrong thing in a delicate moment. Their loss. She’s a good soul in search of honest fun.
Josh Im has known Hazel since college, where her zany playfulness proved completely incompatible with his mellow restraint. From the first night they met—when she gracelessly threw up on his shoes—to when she sent him an unintelligible email while in a post-surgical haze, Josh has always thought of Hazel more as a spectacle than a peer. But now, ten years later, after a cheating girlfriend has turned his life upside down, going out with Hazel is a breath of fresh air.
Not that Josh and Hazel date. At least, not each other. Because setting each other up on progressively terrible double blind dates means there’s nothing between them…right?
This is a standalone novel.

Latest Top Recommendations
A delicious case of opposites attracting, set in the prickly world of modern-day dating, where the plot takes the ‘friends to lovers’ trope and flips it on its head by telling the story of two people who remain adamant they are not dating, regardless of how much everything they do or feel says otherwise. The writing is delightful—clever and engaging—but, as always, the characters steal the show as their endearing quirks and indomitable spirits shine through on every single page. This is one of those wonderful books that will leave you sighing and swooning and smiling and cursing yourself for not being a slower reader.
Ah, the sweet longing, the angst, the melancholy heartache of a tale of unrequited love! Whenever I catch scent of such a story, I go a little weak at the knees, but having one of my favourite authors writing one was downright impossible to resist. We return to Lark Cove with the heartwarming tale of a timid young woman who has spent her entire adult life secretly crushing on a man who’s never even noticed her, and when he finally does, he doesn’t remember it the next day. Set against the romantic backdrop of small-town Montana, this tender romance left me with the proverbial hearts in my eyes, knowing I’d be missing these characters once their story was over.
There has never been a series of books that I have loved in its entirety as obsessively as this one, and this latest instalment has everything I could have ever wanted from a new Victorian Rebels novel—perfect pacing, an ever-thickening plot, suspense, characters I adored, and intricate relationships at every turn. Once again, Kerrigan Byrne crafts a marvelous love story laced with mystery and anticipation, written in such exquisite prose, and with female characters who are so wonderfully modern in their 1800s setting, every single sentence took my breath away.
One of the SEXIEST and most EXHILARATING romances I have EVER come across, the sheer uniqueness of the storyline is only surpassed by Nicola Rendell’s superb writing style and endless creativity. Two sexy jewel thieves, a cute miniature Dachshund, an RV named ‘The Love Boat’, and one of the craziest jewel heists ever attempted—if you’re looking for a story that is truly the whole package, look no further!
To me, no one writes intoxicating college sports romances like Elle Kennedy, and her newest novel is unputdownable. A tale of opposites attracting between a ‘popular girl’ and the geeky hockey player who shies away from the limelight any chance he gets, the chemistry between the leads is only outmatched by how well the author gets in her characters’ heads and makes the reader connect with them. A must-read!
Some books plant themselves in your heart from the very first page, the unexpected beauty of them taking your breath away time and time again, and this book owned my heart from the get-go. An incredibly moving, exquisitely written tale of a young woman traveling to Alaska to reconnect with her estranged father, only to find true love there, too—there are so many aspects of this stellar story that moved me deeply, and it didn’t take long for me to KNOW this would become one of my ABSOLUTE FAVOURITE BOOKS EVER.
A tour de force novel that has everything Kristen Ashley’s fans have come to expect from this remarkable storyteller, this latest instalment in the Chaos series is everything I hoped it would be, and so much more. A tale of unrequited love, of an enduring love, a steadfast love, a selfless love—Hound and Keely’s story begs to be read more than once—each page loaded with detail and depth, and each character searing and beautiful. Every time I finish reading a new Chaos novel, I have a new favourite, but Hound and Keely’s love story had me at the first line.
There are some stories that move you SO deeply and SO unexpectedly, that you end up shedding buckets of tears in the end, feeling too much all at once. As I read the last few pages of this beautiful book, I could barely see the words through all my tears, because NOTHING prepared me for the sheer emotion running through this stunning, wrenching, gem of a novel. This is the story of an anonymous epidemic affecting so many families, and one couple’s struggle to save their crumbling marriage from divorce as life continues to deny them the one thing they long for the most. I don’t know how Colleen Hoover manages to create such authentic, heartfelt stories time and time again, leaving us utterly breathless and incoherent in their aftermath, but I do know that this book is one of my absolute favourites. EVER.
