Latest Favourite Reads

What an incredible reading week we’ve had! Again, each read was so different and each had our book hearts beating for very different reasons.
Check out the books we fell in love with this week!

POINT OF CONTACT by MELANIE HANSEN
5 Star MM Standalone Romance – An incredibly moving story of life, love and hope. Don’t miss this one!

“I told you, I don’t even recognise myself, anymore, and it’s because there are chunks of my heart that are missing and I’m not sure will ever grow back. But Jess –  …All I can tell you is that everything that’s left is one hundred percent yours. This broken mess – this needy, mixed-up shell of who I used to be – is utterly committed to you. I’m yours if you want me, and if you don’t, I get it, because God knows you can do better.”

Sometimes you read a book that reduces you to absolute tears to the point you’re unable to carry on and have to put your kindle aside for a while. Point of Contact is this kind of story. It was stunningly beautiful, heart-breaking, highly emotional, inspirational and hopeful. It was a story of love and overcoming tragedy and grief. A story of friendship and passion. Beauty and love can be found in the darkest of night. As has been said; only in complete darkness can you see the light of the stars.

A love story emerging from the shattered debris of war. A connection, a shared grief and a journey of healing. We experience the before then the after. Our hearts raced our hands felt clammy and our breathing became erratic as we absorbed ever word and its vivid imagery.

Available now amazon us | amazon us

EPOCH (Transcend Duet #2) by JEWEL E ANN
5 Star Duet – A unique, emotional, heartstopping and unforgettable read!

‘He grabs my face and rests his forehead against mine. Without a confession, I feel his guilt. Without a single word, I feel his love.’

If there’s one thing we know when we pick up a Jewel E Ann book, it’s that we’re guaranteed a distinctive and extraordinary read. We also know we’ll meet characters who will burrow their way into our hearts and that this author will put those very hearts through emotional high jumps ensuring we experience feelings of epic proportions, and that certainly happened in in the Transcend Duet. A read we’ve no doubt makes its way into our Top Reads for this year!

We know readers of this duet are either #TeamNate or #TeamGriffin…for us, it’s very much the latter. We’re both devoted Griffindors and we never swayed! We love Nate, but Griffin…that man really is a book boyfriend like no other. Now, regardless of whose team you’re on, your heart will experience everything we’ve mentioned above. Doesn’t matter if you love Nate or Griffin, you need to prepare your heart for a workout in Epoch!

Transcend is now available to purchase amazon us | amazon uk | our review 
Epoch is now available to purchase amazon us | amazon uk

THE REAL by KATE STEWART
Standalone – sweet, swoony yet angsty and emotional romance with a twist we didn’t see coming!

‘Love in all its splendour is a damned nightmare if kept secluded to a timeline. You don’t just stumble upon the love of your life and expect things to work out in your favour.
Love by its definition is a lie, its true definition is work and fuck lot of it. 
…….. Love is meant for the brave.’

We were wooed by ‘The King of Woo’ and bewitched by his ‘Witchy Woman‘ in this sweet, swoony slow burn romance which coasted along gently and beautifully as we connected to Cameron and Abbie and their unfolding relationship.

When the angst hit, our hearts went into overdrive as Kate Stewart tackled a subject that all too often is swept under the carpet. Our hearts ached for Abbie and Cameron as they went into their relationship with a naive understanding that they could leave their past baggage checked at the door. It wasn’t to be.

Kate Stewart delivered a real story, of real love, with real characters who had experienced real life, penning a brave passionate and highly emotional slow burn romance that will surprise you with its provocative honesty.

‘Live early’ – available now amazon us | amazon uk
Review coming soon!
