The Clover Chapel
by Devney Perry

I discovered Devney Perry recently when I read her first novel, The Coppersmith Farmhouse, and I fell in love.  Her story sucked me in immediately, so I was very excited to read this next book.  Technically this is book 2, but can be read as a standalone.


She took a dare and fell in love. Truth would have been the smarter choice.
 After years of living under her father’s thumb, Emmeline is ready to break free. She’s abandoned her life as a New York socialite to follow her dream of becoming a kindergarten teacher in a small, wholesome town. Seeing the man that nearly broke her was absolutely not what she had hoped to find in Prescott, Montana.
Nick hasn’t seen his Emmy in nine years, but that doesn’t mean he’s forgotten a thing about the woman he loves. After just one blissful night as man and wife, he gave her up, sacrificing his own happiness to keep her safe—far away from him. But the moment she walks back into his lonely life is the moment he decides never to let her go again. He won’t waste his second chance. All he has to do is win back Emmeline’s heart, keep her safe from the shadows in his past and prove to her that taking a wager on him is a sure bet.

I fell in love with this book from the beginning.  This is a story about redemption and second chances.  My heart broke for Emmeline throughout the book.  When Nick leaves her, and her horrible family, just made me so sad.  But she was strong, and kept going, and I loved her so much.  And Nick is a great alpha male.  He is sexy, and sweet in that alpha way that I just swoon for. 
This is a sweet second chance romance and I loved it.  I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a sweet alpha, second chance romance.  It is incredibly well written and I absolutely adored it!!!

The author is also having a giveaway!!  She is giving away 2 $50 Amazon GC's and a signed copy of The Clover Chapel, so make sure and enter!!

By LJ Shen

I loved Vicious, and I could not wait to read this one!!  We met Dean and Rose in Vicious, and I was so excited to get into there story. 

They say that life is a beautiful lie and death a painful truth. They're right.
No one has ever made me feel more alive than the guy who serves as a constant reminder that my clock is ticking.
He is my forbidden, shiny apple.
The striking fallacy to my blunt, raw, truth.
He is also my sister's ex-boyfriend.
One thing you should know before you judge me;
I saw him first. I craved him first. I loved him first.
Eleven years later, he waltzed into my life, demanding a second chance.
Dean Cole wants to be my bronze horseman. My white knight has finally arrived. Hopefully, he isn’t too late.


They say the brightest stars burn out the fastest. They’re right.
She sets my mind on fire.
All smart mouth, snarky attitude and a huge heart.
In a world where everything is dull, she shines like Sirius.
Eleven years ago, fate tore us apart.
This time, I dare it to try.
Getting to her is a battlefield, but man, that’s why they call me Ruckus.
Rosie LeBlanc is about to find out how hard I can fight.
And conquering her will be the sweetest victory.

LJ Shen has a way of sucking you in completely.  The characters are so flawed, but so great at the same time.  Dean really started out as an A Hole!!  He was a jerk in the previous book, but he took it to a new level in this one.  And as we got more insight into Dean and his story, it was truly heartbreaking.  
When we met Rosie in the previous book. we knew she was sick, so I wasn't really sure how this book would go.  But I truly admired her!  She is so strong, and knows who she is and what she wants.  Her relationship with her parents about killed me and I was so mad at them.  This book definitely invoked a ton of emotion, I was mad, I was sad, I smiled.  It covers all the bases for sure!!

This book is live and available now, and it's on sale for $.99 right now, so grab it.  This book is heartbreaking, sexy, and full of angst.  I loved it!!!

A Girl Like Me
by Ginger Scott

This is the second book in the Like Us duet, following A Boy Like You, this cannot be read as a stand alone.  A Boy Like You had a crazy cliffhanger so I couldn't wait to get my hands on this one. 

I’m not supposed to be here.

Death has come for me more than once, and each time it’s been a boy who’s stood between me and my final breath.

I called him Christopher when he saved me as a child. When he came into my life again, only months ago, I knew him as Wes. Just as he did the time before, he disappeared the moment he made sure I was out of harm’s way; as if I didn’t need any more saving.

This time, though, death left me with a reminder of how powerful it is. I know it meant to strip me of my spirit again, but it failed.

Even so, I know I need Wes to survive. Our souls are woven together somehow, our every breath in sync. I feel it, even though everyone says I shouldn’t.

The world thinks he’s missing.
His loved ones don’t want to believe he’s dead.
Only I know just how special he is.

I’m going to find him and bring him home, where he belongs. Together, we’ll face impossible—we’ll rewrite our ending.

I fell in love with these characters in A Boy Like You and I couldn't wait to find out there ending.  The end of the previous book left me with so many questions.  This duet is very different.  It started to lean a little paranormal, and I really wasn't sure where it was going. 
Watching Wes and Josselyn come develop was such a great ride.  Josselyn went from a lost and broken girl into such a strong inspirational character, I loved her.  And Wes was a sweet swoony boy that helped her along the way. 
This is a inspiring story that has all kinds of funky twists and turns.  It's about moving on and finding out who you are, and writing your own ending.  I loved every second of it 

Both books in this duet are available now, and everyone should absolutely read them!!

Cheaters Regret
by Rachel Van Dyken (RVD)

I have been anxiously awaiting Thatch and Austin's story since we met them in Cheater!! 

Austin Rogers’s dreams of domestic bliss involved watching Netflix and eating hot dogs with the love of her life. But then he cheated on her. And dumped her—as if the whole thing was her fault. To maintain her pride and restore her sanity, she decides to get revenge. It feels immensely satisfying to plot her ex’s downfall—but so does kissing him.
Thatch Holloway, a plastic surgeon straight out of residency, knows he ruined the best thing that ever happened to him. But not all cheaters are created equal. He got himself into this messed-up situation—true—but he has his reasons for what happened, and he’d do it all again to protect Austin.
He’s not over her. And she’s not over him.
Austin wants closure, but since Thatch refuses to give it to her, she takes matters into her own hands. She needs to write a human-interest piece for her MBA, so she demands the full plastic-surgery experience. Sparks fly as they’re forced to work together. But Thatch isn’t afraid to play dirty in return. And he’s still hiding something—something that has the power to destroy not only Austin but their second chance at finding forever…

We met Thatch and Austin in Book 1 of this series, but we don't much about them.  When this book starts out, Thatch has broken Austin's heart and he was quite the jerk.  I really hated him for a good part of the book!!  We know there is more to the story, and as that unfolds, I started to feel bad for him, and eventually, I ended up loving him!!
I loved Austin from the beginning, she is sweet and adorable and hilarious.  Her junk food obsession cracks me up.  And as always with RVD's books, the supporting cast is amazing.  I loved getting more of Lucas and Avery. 

This is a sexy, light hearted read and I loved it!!  It is available now, and Book 1 is also on sale!

Until Sage
by Aurora Rose Reynolds

I am a huge Aurora Rose Reynolds fan.  She writes great alpha males, with fun female characters, with just enough angst.  And this one fit right in!

Sage Mayson had Kimberly Cullen once, and the memory of that brief encounter has tortured him since the moment he pushed her away. He should have followed his gut, but he didn’t, and now he’s left watching the woman he wants more than anything from afar.

Kimberly vowed to protect her heart from Sage, but when her sister is murdered and her world starts to fall apart, he’s the one person she finds herself leaning on.
Getting a second chance is something Sage knows is rare. He’s not going to squander the one he’s been given, and he won’t take no for an answer when it comes to making Kim his.

But what Sage doesn’t know is Kim has a secret that could leave them both devastated and heartbroken.

We met Kim and Sage in Until Ashlyn, but this book can be read as a standalone.  I fell in love with Sage from the beginning, and Kim was a sweet and loveable girl.  Sage had the right amount of Alpha, without being a jerk.  This sucked me in from the beginning and I devoured it.  I can't wait for more!  Another BOOM!!
This book is part of a series, and I love the whole thing, but this can be read alone.  There was the right amount of drama and angst, and it kept me completely enthralled.  This is live today and I highly recommend it!!
