With each dusty page, Samira comes to realize that perhaps it was no accident at all—that perhaps her perfect husband is not as perfect as she thought.

- Colonial Corpses: A Paranormal Women’s Fiction Novel: (Hallowed Homes) (Haven Hollow Book 19) by J.R. Rain and H.P. Mallory <— LIVE!!
- In Heat: Filthy Dirty Summer by C.M. Steele <— LIVE!!
- AIMEE ENJOYED THESE TWO BOOKS!!
Aimee: I finally got to read a book! 2 actually… Both were 4* and that’s only because they are similar to ones I read before so I feel if I haven’t read a story like this before it could be higher.
Pollyanna and the Greek Billionaire was the first one! It had me in tears at times! Love a good tear jerker! It needed to be edited so go in with this knowledge and it’s a good read!!! It’s a jilted hero book.
Next is Why not Goodbye by Arika Maxwell <— This one was a similar trope to others I’ve read. Secret baby and an abusive husband. This author had a good writing style so if you are new to this trope it’s worth the read!!! It’s my go to trope when I haven’t read or listened to it in a while!
- The Wildflower Series by Rachelle Mills <— SUPER-BARGAIN SERIES BOXSET (REJECTED MATE ALERT!!) So many of us went crazy for book #1!!! Here’s my review for book #1!!
Jackie: Just finished The Wildflower Series! Loved it! Gave me “Twilight” feels!!!
Harper: Wildflower (Rachelle Mills) was really well written and the romance was truly believable. There was a lot of chemistry between the couple. The author took her time developing their story, so when it was time for the bonding and claiming part it made sense and truly moved us. You could feel the pain the h felt on the first book and how her character developed into a stronger and more confident woman.
- Heartbreak for Two by C.W. Farnsworth <— THEY ARE ON STAGE TOGETHER & THE SONG IS ABOUT HIM! “…Some couples have chemistry. Others have a connection. We have both. We took turns, walking away. But somehow, we’ve still ended up here. On stage, together, in front of tens of thousands of people. Him holding a guitar, me a microphone. Singing the song I wrote that launched my career and dubbed me the princess of pop music. The song about him...”
- Dark Paradise: Skulls and Scythes MC (MC Syndicates) by Katie May and Ann Denton <— LIVE!!
- Five Dates: A Lake Harmony Novel by Tanja Waltrip <— LIVE!!
- Desperation: A Dark Mafia Age Gap Romance by Crimson Syn <— LIVE!!
- Grudge: An MM Mafia Romance (Ruthless Daddies) by Gianni Holmes <— LIVE!!
- Dream Man by Kayt Miller <— LIVE!! HE’S HER NEW NEXT DOOR NEIGHBOR! “...Sam seems to embody every hero she’s ever read about in the romance novels she edits. He’s tall, dark, handsome, and built like a brick––you get the idea. It’s too bad Colette has zero skills when it comes to meeting the opposite sex. Less than zero. Maybe the reason she’s had difficulty finding love is because she prefers eating cake over exercising and enjoys reading over going out on the town which means meeting her new neighbor is never going to happen…”
- 21 Rumors: The Complete Collection by Kristy Marie <— SERIES BUNDLE SUPER-BARGAIN!! “…21 Rumors is a collection of three full-length standalone romantic comedy novels with crossover characters from each book…”
- Not Over You: A Contemporary Romance Anthology <— RECENT ANTHOLOGY RELEASE & NANCY LOVED IT! PLUS, IT’S SUPER-BARGAIN PRICED!!
Nancy: 19 full- length books by 20 different authors…. This book is full of emotion & angst.
- Wrapped In Armor (The Brody Hines series Book 2) by MJ Fields <— ROCK STAR ROMANCE RECENTLY WENT LIVE!! MUST BE READ IN ORDER.
- The Dark Series Trilogy (Lilly & Rhys’s Complete Story): A Dark New Adult Romantic Suspense Trilogy by Danah Logan <— TRILOGY BUNDLE!!! They used to be best friends but now he no longer talks to her…
- No Tomorrow by Carian Cole <— SUPER-BARGAIN & NANCY 5-STAR LOVED THIS ONE TOO! I read this one too!! Here’s my own review. 😀
Nancy: I am a big fan of Carian Cole, and have read all her books. But this one is an epic book. It is long, so don’t start reading till you can plan to keep on reading. You won’t want to put the book down till “The End”! This book does touch on sensitive subjects such as depression, mental illness, and drug use. If any of these are your triggers then read this book with caution.
