WHAT WE’RE CURRENTLY READING
THE KEY TO MY HEART by LIA LOUIS – Purchase Ebook  Paperback  Audio

Oh gosh, we are LOVING this book, and already know it’s going to be a 5-star read! What a way to start our August reading journey, with this sweet, emotional, funny, and effortlessly beautiful story of loss, love, and self-discovery. Told with a perfect blend of humour, swoon, and emotion. We ADORE this Author! If you love Colleen Hoover, you must add this author to your reading lists!

SYNOPSIS
Sparkly and charming Natalie Fincher has it all—a handsome new husband, a fixer-upper cottage of her dreams, and the opportunity to tour with the musical she’s spent years writing. But when her husband suddenly dies, all her hopes and dreams instantly disappear.

Two and a half years later, Natalie is still lost. She works, sleeps (well, as much as the sexually frustrated village foxes will allow), and sees friends just often enough to allay their worries, but her life is empty. And she can only bring herself to play music at a London train station’s public piano where she can be anonymous. She’s lost motivation, faith in love, happiness…in everything.

But when someone begins to mysteriously leave the sheet music for her husband’s favorite songs at the station’s piano, Natalie begins to feel a sense of hope and excitement for the first time. As she investigates just who could be doing this, Natalie finds herself on an unexpected journey toward newfound love for herself, for life, and maybe, for a special someone.

REVERSE (The Bittersweet Symphony Duet #2) by KATE STEWART – Angsty and emotional rock star duet
Purchase Drive Book 1 Ebook Paperback Audio  – Reverse Book 2 Ebook Paperback 

‘Being with Easton in any capacity is like trying to cling to a shooting star, and somewhere inside, I know that if I don’t relish this time with him, I’ll miss it as he burns his brightest.’

5 Stars and more! What an epic book! We can finally breathe! We’re speechless after finishing our favourite book of the year! They say if you can’t find the perfect book, go and write one yourself. Well, we don’t have that talent, but it was as though Kate Stewart reached into our hearts and wrote the book we so desperately wanted to read!

Proper’ Rock Star romances are so hard to come by, yes there are many to choose from, but few capture the true essence of the rock star theme. The music, the thrill of the stage, the excitement, the electricity, the suffering that bleeds into the rock stars’ lyrics, the bone-crushing all in love – for the music and the characters.

BROKEN PLAY by ALISON RHYMES – Angsty, cheating, redemption sports standalone romance
Purchase  Ebook  Paperback

“Who even are you, Drew McKenna?”
“I’m just a man in love with a woman who, rightfully, hates him.”

Broken Play is the debut book by Author Alison Rhymes and what a book this was! We loved EVERY SINGLE MINUTE spent with June and Drew (and of course Noah)! We have always had an intense love-hate relationship with books featuring cheating. When an Author writes it well, we absolutely LOVE the angst, passion, and high emotion and feel something for each character in their own right. However, not all Authors manage to balance that fine line perfectly, but we can wholeheartedly say that Alison Rhymes did just that. She nailed it. Bravo!

Broken Play had us hanging on every single word, furiously turning the pages, unable to put our kindles down for love nor money. We were enthralled, addicted, and compelled from the first page until the very last.

KEEP IT IN THE FAMILY by JOHN MARRS – Standalone thriller, supsense
Pre Order  Ebook  Paperback Audio

‘I’ve grown to realise that when I don’t have blood on my hands, they are uncomfortably dry.’

We could not put Keep it in the Family down, such was the grip it had on us in all its horrific, manipulative, twisted and macabre glory. Complex relationships, a history of horrors, mounting dead bodies and a huge emphasis of the nature versus nurture debate running commentary in the background. In some respects, we felt as if we were watching a true crime documentary on Netflix. This one felt a bit different to what we normally experience with a John Marrs novel. The writing style seemed more simplistic in its execution. This is not a negative though as we feel it suited the narrative and ensured a sense of the ordinary which is anything but. A seriously messed up family dynamic and characters we didn’t like very much, but then we’re not sure we were meant to.

The twists…. oh, the twists!!!!!!!

THE NIGHT BLOSSOMS by LEYLAH ATTAR – Standalone romantic suspense
Purchase Ebook  Paperback

“When you cry, my whole world turns dark. You are my life, my hope, my home. If my life ended tomorrow, I would look for you again and again, in every lifetime.”

We’ve been eagerly awaiting The Night Blossoms by Leylah Attar, wanting to hear Rafael’s story. If you’ve read The Paper Swan, you’ll know he is Damien’s childhood friend and a bit of a genius with a tragic past. You also know his story is going to affect you and pull at your heartstrings. Be prepared though! This romantic suspense was a bit like a whirlwind; surprising, abrupt, contradicting, confusing but still, all-encompassing. It was a soft caress and it was a destructive force of nature. Once again, we were mesmerised by this Author’s astounding ways of weaving a story like a beautiful heart-breaking piece of poetry. We loved it!

The suspense, drama, and thrilling mystery were a rollercoaster of whodunnit, and love lost.

WHEN WRECKED MEETS RUINED (Lost Stars #4) by EMERY ROSE – Standalone in Series first love, soulmate romance
Purchase Ebook  Paperback 

‘I looked at him over my shoulder. A fallen angel with messy hair, the body of a Greek god, and a face that could break hearts with just one look.’

When Wrecked Meets Ruined is a story of bad timing, young love, suffering, bravery, and loyalty. The unyielding supporting family bonds which carry through each book is the thread that weaves the Lost Stars series together, and it’s one that draws us back each time. We adore this series! Each book has been emotional, angsty, swoony, and really pulls at the heartstrings.

Emery Rose takes us on an angsty and heart-wrenching journey from first soul-deep love, through the ups and downs of maturity, about believing in yourself and learning you are good enough, that you’re worthy of happiness.

BE WITH ME (Adair Family #4) by SAMANTHA YOUNG – Series – friends to lovers, romantic suspense
Purchase Ebook  Paperback

“I can’t promise you I’ll be everything you need me to be. I can’t.”

We’ve been waiting to unravel the mystery surrounding Ardnoch Estates Yoga/Pilates teacher Eredine Willows. The thirty-two-year-old American beauty brought with her a bagful of secrets that only Lachlan Adair and his best friend, Mac have been privy to, when she left Los Angeles eight years earlier to live in the beautiful Scottish Highlands.

Be With Me is a story of love, trust, and taking that leap. The passion, emotion, and swoon are once again bountiful in Arran and Eredine’s story, and the growth between the characters emotionally was a joy to witness.

The friendships and family unit are wonderful and growing with every book.

SOME KIND OF LOVE by ANNA BLOOM – Standalone – childhood lovers, second chance romance.
Purchase  Ebook  Paperback

“You once told me you thought our love was too easy…is it hard enough for you now?”

Some Kind of Love is a second-chance smalltown romance with a wonderful hero in Freddy Bale. This man’s patience and ability to forgive are beyond measure. Many a man would have handled Amber’s deceit somewhat differently.

Although Freddy was responsible for their breakup ten years earlier, his heart was in the right place at the time, but he couldn’t have envisaged the fallout his words would generate. Young Freddy thought he was doing the right thing for Amber but would soon learn the devastating consequences of his actions.

This author always finds a way to burrow into our hearts and some parts of this story did just that. We loved the Bale family and Amber’s friend Dani, who brought another dimension to Freddy and Amber’s second chance love story. We’d love to hear more of the Bale brothers in future books, that’s for sure.
