My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I fell in love with Lauren Blakely since I first read 21 Stolen Kisses and have never looked back. She turns out swoon worthy emotional stories with just the right blend of sensuality, romance and humor.

What’s amazing about this book is that both main characters are engaging, like able and strongly developed. Having been betrayed or disappointed in love before, their subconscious fall into love was such a captivating journey to follow that you can’t help but celebrate and cheer along with their supportive circle of friends.

I’m a sucker for second chances and this story just burrows right into my heart. A happy read right to the very last page.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

For some reasons I couldn’t get my head and heart into this story as quickly as I did with this author’s other books. It may be that the best friend’s sister to lovers story arc is not new but I’ve read other similar romances that captured my attention from the start.

Instead, a third into this book, I stopped and got into another of Ms Ryan’s latest and finished that in mere hours. Much as I would’ve liked to give this book a higher rating, it’s at most a 3.5 for me.

Not my favorite book from Ms Ryan.

Too Wilde to Wed by Eloisa James

Too Wilde to Wed (The Wildes of Lindow Castle, #2)Too Wilde to Wed by Eloisa James

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Love this more than the debut. Who could fault such poetic and heart melting sentiments express by the hero, North, when he proposed to Diana, again, for the 4th? time.

“I can’t promise to die after you, Diana. But I will love you until the
moment I take my final breath. And if I go before you, I pray that your face is the last thing I see before I close my eyes.
That sight will hold me until we meet again.”

What a beautiful ending to an exciting melodrama of a romance.

If the Earl Only Knew by Amanda Forester

If the Earl Only Knew (The Daring Marriages, #1)If the Earl Only Knew by Amanda Forester

This is another DNF for me. The synopsis of an unconventional heroine was what drew me to download the book. But I struggled to engage with Kate, especially after she’s moved into the Wynbrook house. The chemistry between Kate and her Earl did not come across as strong as what the synopsis suggested. I couldn’t be induced to continue after plowing through half the book.
