‘I refuse to be a one-time fling. I want the fairy-tale ending.’

We absolutely loved Saving Evangeline; book one in this series so we eagerly jumped into Tempting Jo. Despite this series having interconnected characters they can both be read as standalones.

Once again Nancee Cain injected her own brand of humour into this otherworldly romantic story of forbidden love and we chuckled at the shenanigans as they played out. There were many quirky moments as well as proper sweet gushing romance.

“Being content isn’t good enough. You deserve so much more – passion, joy and excitement.”

Whilst we enjoyed this fun romantic read we sadly didn’t love it as we did Saving Evangeline. In some respects we think it’s because we just didn’t connect with Rafe and Jo as individuals as well as a couple. We would have loved to have been privy to some of the childhood memories and experienced some of their shared moments to feel the poignancy. In our opinion this story could have been absolutely fabulous if we’d been allowed to experience the before rather than be told there was a connection there afterwards. It felt like the story was skimmed upon rather than fleshed out.

‘She has no idea what she means to me. I’ll do anything to wipe her fears away, even to my own detriment.’

We have to say we that whilst this was Rafe and Jo’s book we were more in love with Luc and Magda and their parts in this story- they had us laughing and swooning respectively. We’re kind of crossing our fingers here…wink wink….nudge nudge….

“You are my world, my heaven, my stars, and my sun. You’re mine. Always and forever.”

The premise of Tempting Jo was lovely; the writing was fabulously light and engaging. It was about realising your own heart and who you are, sacrifice and ultimately love and protection. Standing up for what you believe and who you believe in. The latter part of this story was by far our favourite and the epilogue was perfection. We were left with a satisfied smile on our faces in the end after a lovely light-hearted read.

‘I love her. I need her. And I want her. Now.

3.5 Stars

“Life is just borrowed time, Evangeline. That’s what you told me. You can either waste it, disregard it, or live it.”



Evangeline is the town pariah. Everyone knows she’s crazy and was responsible for the death of her last boyfriend. Even her mother left her and moved cross-country. Lonely and desperate, Evie decides to end her life.

Rogue angel Remiel longs to return to earth, but there’s just one problem. He tends to invite trouble and hasn’t been allowed back since Woodstock. The Boss sends him to save Evangeline, but there’s a catch: he can’t reveal his angelic nature, and he must complete the task as Father Remiel Blackson.

Forced together on a cross-country trip, a forbidden romance ignites and love unfolds. A host of heavenly messengers tries to intervene, but Remiel and Evangeline are headed on a collision course to disaster. Will his love save her, or will they both be lost forever?

“Just don’t fall in love with me,” I teased. “Kay.” He said.


‘Sometimes passion was a whisper, other times a roar. This time? It was a storm.’


“Part of me wants to pretend I have you, but another part thinks I’ll die if you don’t tell me you love me, even if it doesn’t change anything. Even if it’s just getting to hear it one more time.”


‘It’s such a simple word – just four letters. Home. But there aren’t enough letters in the alphabet in the world to capture the meaning of it.’

SWEET MEMORY (The Painted Daisies #1) by LJ EVANS

“I’m afraid I’ll fall completely, head-over-heels in love with you, and that you’ll fall back. I’m afraid we’ll discover we’re the missing pieces of each other’s souls.
The words had a beat -a rhythm- like it was a song she’d already written.
