Lucy Lennox is a relatively new-to-me author, but she’s quickly becoming one of my go-to writers in the Romance genre. I’ll be honest with you, I jumped into this series knowing all too well that this is the fourth book set in that world, and I was completely fine with that. Julian and Parker have been inseparable since they were kids, their bond one of friendship, loyalty, and unconditional love. But while Parker has only ever seen Julian as his beloved best friend, Julian has been secretly pining for Parker for the past twenty years. So, when Parker is left at the altar by his fiancé, Julian whisks him away to a snowy cabin in Aster Valley to help him get over the heartbreak. However, the only thing that Parker is feeling is relief when it comes to the wedding that never happened. A few kisses quickly turn into so much more, but while Parker is ready to go all in and show the man he’s always loved that he is not going anywhere, Julian has a hard time trusting the change in their relationship. Sizzling hot and oh-so emotional, I devoured this wonderful book in a day.

I just LOVE LOVE LOVE going back to Willa Nash’s small town Montana and the latest instalment in her Calamity Montana series is to die for. We quickly met Nellie Rivera and Cal Stark in The Brazen as Pierce Sullivan’s two best friends who happen to hate one another. But while Nellie relocates to Calamity both for work and for a fresh start in life, Cal has just retired from the NFL and is feeling completely unsure about his future. They clash every time they cross paths, but what we quickly discover is that they’ve also been sleeping together for the past four years. And while they continue to do so, their antagonism doesn’t start fading until Cal comes across an old high school journal of Nellie’s that begins rewriting the narrative between them. Willa Nash (a.k.a. Devney Perry) continues to weave stories that have the perfect balance of escapism and complexity, where every emotion hits you like a tidal wave, and this one made me FEEL so much.

Kate Canterbary has been a must-read author for me for some time now, and her latest novel is simply fantastic. It’s an enemies-to-lovers story between two surgeons working at the same hospital who, after a very heated debate that leaves an exam room in shambles, are forced to attend eight weeks of conflict resolution counselling… together. They push each other’s buttons every time they are in the same room, never letting the other win ANY argument, and before long, their every round of bickering inevitably ends with them tearing each other’s clothes off. But when feelings begin to develop, things take an unexpected turn for them both. Kate is the queen of banter, and the dialogues in this book are simply stellar. You feel the antagonism, the heat, the undeniable chemistry between the characters, all the while delivering a story that is emotional, moving, and beautifully written. I listened to the audiobook and I can’t recommend it highly enough.

C. Travis Rice, Christopher Rice’s new writing alter ego, transports the reader to a luxury beachfront resort nestled in the rolling coastal plains of Southern California, where two men find true love amidst scandal and heightened family drama. Filled with rich imagery, all the sizzle we could ever hope for, and just enough angst to make our romantic hearts skip a beat or two, this novel rises up around you like a tide, slowly and seductively, but it is Rice’s beautiful prose, refined yet fiercely witty, that pulls us under its spell.

ROMANTIC SUSPENSE

The world took everything from us.

As survivors of not only a plane crash, but two other impossible tragedies, we’d more than earned a life of peace. But time and time again, we were shown that fate had no intention of giving that to us.

Remi and I were soulmates. Plain and simple. Our love should have died in the depths of our darkness, but the sun still exists even when it’s not shining.

The secrets of our past threatened to destroy us at every turn, but for Remi, I would never stop fighting for our future.

The world took everything from us.

And we would stop at nothing until we took it all back—forever.

This is the third and final book in The Difference Trilogy.

He’s a wealthy playboy who doesn’t believe in happily ever after.

What starts out as a disastrous first meeting, involving a coffee catastrophe and mistaken flirting, turns into an unconventional friendship.

Fake phone sex.

Dog park dates.

And eighteen holes of golf.

The problem? Sophie’s taken herself out of the dating pool for a mysterious reason, imprisoning Shep in the friend zone for eternity.

“The kids are growing up—different from their parents but the same in so many ways…”

Aro

Hawken Trent. So polite. So sweet. Such an upstanding young man.
A virgin, too, I hear. He never gets naughty with a girl. Probably because Jesus told him not to.
And now here he is, trying to be the hero by protecting another girl from me.
He calls me a bully. Irrational. Unreasonable. A criminal. He can call me anything he wants, I’ve heard worse.
And he can try to stand between me and my money, but he’s never had to fight for food. That rich, clean, school boy doesn’t have what it takes.

Hawke

I surprised her. You should’ve seen her face.
Just because I don’t have a record, honey, doesn’t mean I’m clean. It just means I’m better at not getting caught.
That is until I realize I might’ve actually gone too far this time.
She’s there. I’m there. The scene of the crime.
It’s dark. The police show up.
We have no choice. We run. Down High Street, into Quinn’s bake shop, and I pull her through the entrance to the old speakeasy that everyone forgot was here decades ago.
The door locks, the cops circle the building, never knowing we’re right here, and I’m hidden in plain sight, indefinitely, with someone’s who’s awful.
Mean. Rough. Dirty.
A thief. A delinquent.
Until one night, lost in all of these rooms together, I don’t see any of those things anymore.
She’s smart. Daring. Soft.
Hot…
Everything’s changing. It’s this place. It does something to people.
We have a silly urban legend in Shelburne Falls about mirrors. They’re a gateway. Don’t lean back into them.
But we came through front first.
I don’t care what the county records say. This was never a speakeasy.
It’s Carnival Tower.

This is the first standalone novel in the all-new Hellbent series, a spin-off from the Fall Away series.

SEAL BODYGUARD

My best friend’s little brother needs a bodyguard. Now I’m the one in danger…

I’m a SEAL. Or rather, I was. Retired at the grand old age of thirty-eight, I’m at loose ends. My best friend wants me to join his security team. I’m not sure I’m bodyguard material, but he needs someone to protect his kid brother. How hard can spoiled brat duty be?

Somehow, I missed the part where former child star Danny Love went from dorky TV darling to all grown up and disturbingly attractive. All the gossip about his wild ways fails to mention that he’s trying hard to clean up his act. But now he’s got a stalker.

Hiding out together in a remote mountain cabin, alone, the temptation keeps building. I’m feeling things I never have before. Secrets I’ve kept even from myself bubble to the surface every time Danny looks my way with those puppy dog eyes.

I’m a SEAL. We leap into danger. So why is it so terrifying when that danger comes with the softest pair of lips I’ve ever known? At some point we’re going to have to return to Hollywood and our vastly different lives. Will Danny still want me around when he doesn’t need me for protection? Can I be brave enough to give him a reason to?

This is a standalone novel in the all-new A-List Security series.

FORBIDDEN ROMANCE

Vaughn is everything I’m supposed to stay away from. Sexy. Cocky. And famous.

Ultra-famous.

I grew up in a family full of wealthy celebrities. My father, Luke Williams, is the celebrity of them all. A superstar actor and producer, my father knows the downside of living in the spotlight. And because of that, he sheltered my siblings and me from everything Hollywood entailed. We didn’t attend premieres. We weren’t photographed. There were no friendships with other celebrities’ children.

The limelight couldn’t touch us.

But now, at twenty-five, I’m ready to start my life, working for my father’s production company in downtown Seattle—until Vaughn Barrymore walks through the door.

He can’t keep his hands off me. He’s completely forbidden, but I can’t help falling for the sweet, complicated man.
When—and it’s when not if—my family finds out that I’ve been keeping this secret, will I have to choose between the man I love and those who mean the most to me? Or, by some miracle, can I have both?
