Road Trip by Andie M. Long & Laura Barnard


Release Date: 05.23.2018



Synopsis:

After the end of a car crash relationship can Katy find true love?

Catching her sister in bed with her fiancé, school teacher Katy Cornish enlists playboy colleague Felix Montague to help her save face. What she doesn’t bargain on is them both losing their jobs in the process.

With finances running out, Katy must endure the rude and arrogant Felix while they embark on a road trip around the country in hopes of securing a new job. But there’s just one problem... they’re up for the same posts. This road trip is going to be unlike any other, with them doing whatever they can to sabotage the other.

Can they see past themselves and their egos to each other? Or will their desperation to continue their careers drive them apart?


Review:


I love Laura Barnard's books and I appreciate Andie M. Long's stories too so I jumped into this rom-com without a second thought.
Road Trip was an entertaining and hilarious read.

Katy and Felix are collegues,they are both teachers until they have been made redundant.They have never got along,they based their opinion of one another on the school rumors. 
Out of necessity they decide to leave for a road trip together searching for a new school willing to hire them.
As you rightly assume this journey will be eventful and it will help our main characters to know each other better.
I hope to read more about them because I want to know their future.

Give it a go,you won't regret it!

Still Us by Lindsay Detwiler


Release Date: 05.19.2018




Synopsis:

From the first time they locked eyes, Lila Morrow and Luke Bowman had a special spark. Their first kiss sealed their fairy-tale romance… until everything fell apart.


Luke’s life began when he met Lila—and in many ways, it ended when she left him. Drowning in regrets, Luke is determined to give Lila the space to be happy. The sexy, singing roofer quickly realizes, however, he really shouldn’t have let her go.


After their breakup, Lila moves back in with her family. The twenty-nine-year-old veterinarian’s transition to a life without Luke isn’t as easy as she expected. With the help of her wild Grandma Claire and her high-heel-loving sister, Maren, she starts to play the field… but she isn’t sure she’ll ever stop loving the curly-haired man from her early twenties.


Luke and Lila’s love story ended, and their individual boxes have been packed. But as they explore the single life and the dating world, both discover sometimes the love you leave behind is exactly what you need to be happy.


Review:



Still Us was an interesting read.
It tells the story of two lost soul mates and the journey that will take them to happiness.

Luke and Lila took the hardest decision of their lives leaving their love nest and their relationship behind starting to live without the other.
Even living apart they still think to each other and their love story but their longing will be enough to overcome their differences and to change their minds going back to each other??

I have once again appreciated Lindsay Detwiler writing and all the characters especially the exuberant grandma.

Release Date: 05.09.2018


Synopsis:

HARRISON . . . 

Once his fortune in silver mining is secured, Harrison Carter finally sends back home for his fiancée. It’s been four years since he’s seen Jenny. 

But it’s Retta Pearce, Jenny’s sister, who arrives by stagecoach with young daughter Adeline in tow. When this lovely, soiled dove brings devastating news and a written plea from Jenny to marry and care for Retta and little Addie, what’s a good man to do? 

RETTA . . . 

Fulfilling her dying sister’s request, Retta travels across dangerous territory to marry a man she barely remembers. But the hard miner who meets her at the stagecoach surely isn’t the same one her sister claimed was kind and honorable, a gentleman who’ll embrace her and her daughter as if they were his own. Has she made a mistake she’ll pay for, the rest of her life? 

TWO PEOPLE . . . 

Thrown together in shared sorrow, Harrison and Retta struggle to forge a life in the brand-new state of late-nineteenth-century Colorado. 


Review:


I've never read a romance that takes place in the old wild west before and I loved it.

Retta,our heroine,is a smart and gorgeous woman who doesn't let her bad luck to beat her to the ground. Harrison is a good man and we can see how his feelings grow chapter after chapter.
Their journey is intriguing and engaging you cannot turn the pages quick enough.

First time I read a novel from these two authors but their amazing words made me a fan instantly.

I can't wait for the next book in the series to be released!!!

The Ruthless Gentleman by Louise Bay


Release Date: 05.08.2018


Synopsis:

As a chief stewardess on luxury superyachts, I massage egos, pamper the spoiled and cater to the most outlandish desires of the rich and famous.

I’ve never had a guest want something I can’t give them. Until British businessman Hayden Wolf comes aboard—all sexy swagger and mysterious requests.
He wants me. 

And Hayden Wolf’s a man who’s used to getting exactly what he demands. 

Despite being serious and focused. Demanding and ruthless. He’s also charming when I least expect it as well as being devastatingly handsome with an almost irresistible smile.

But guests are strictly off limits and I’ve never broken a rule. Not even bent one. My family are depending on me and I can’t lose my job.

Only problem is Hayden Wolf is looking at me like I just changed his life. And he's touching me like he’s about to change mine.


Review:


The Ruthless Gentleman was a nice, interesting and engaging read.
I'm always drawn to Louise Bay's novels,her writing is amazing and her plots are never banal,she knows what she is writing about especially the corporations world.

Avery Walker is an american stewardess on the yacht chartered by the londoner mogul Hayden Wolf. They can't come from two more different worlds but their lust and attraction is crystal clear from their first meeting on the glistening deck.
Their relationship develops slowly but this make the forbidden liaison between the client and the employee far more realistic. 

Sicily is my achilles heel.I like it as much as our heroine,the sun, the colours, the sea, make it one of my favourite places in the World.
I recommend to read this book if you want a glimpse of Summer during this crazy Spring.

Bittersweet by Carmen Jenner & Lauren K. McKellar


Release Date: 05.01.2018



Synopsis:

Romy Love knows weddings. As the author of a hugely successful wedding blog, you’d think she’d have love covered. It is her last name, after all.

Lose twenty pounds


Take over the blogging world one wedding at a time


Make Coffee Hottie fall in love with me


Yeah, this shouldn’t be difficult at all.


Review:


Bittersweet was such a pleasure to read,it's sweet, cute, funny and I've said sweet??

Romy is a wedding blogger and Elio is her favorite barista,they seem perfect for each other but their insecurities and their previous bad love experiences put a brake on their growing attraction.
I've really enjoyed these characters journey and I couldn't help but to cheer for them from start to end.

I hope to read more from this author duo because I need the story of two certain supporting characters.

Excerpt:

Confident I no longer look like a cave troll, I grab my keys and wallet and rush downstairs. Elio is just turning the sign in the window when I virtually slam my body against it because I was running full-tilt down the stairs, and I can’t slow my velocity. He gives a startled laugh, and I flame bright red.

Elio abandons his ‘closed sign and opens the door.“Hey.”
“Hi. Sorry about that.”

“Couldn’t wait to see me, huh?” His eyes burn with mischief. I blush and desire arcs through me, because really, it should be illegal for anyone to look that delicious in jeans and a T-shirt with a dishtowel slung over his shoulder.

“Ha! Yeah.” I shake my head.“I mean no. I mean, Coffee. I’m lagging. Please, I’m really sorry. I know you’re closed and you wanna get home, and why wouldn’t you? It’s not like you want to stay at the shop all day when there’s wine to drink and cheese to nibble and classic books to read.”

He frowns.“That’s your impression of me? That I nibble cheese while reading classic literature.”

“And the wine,” my mouth supplies unhelpfully.

He chuckles.“You may need a crash course in what men do after work. Here’s a hint: it’s not nibbling anything. Unless, of course, it comes to ear lobes.”

Oh, wow. Okay. I would definitely prefer that to an expensive gouda.

He grins.“Come on. I’ll do you better than just a coffee.”

“Excuse me?” I squeak.

Now he laughs outright.“Relax,Romy. My nonna is here, my sister too, and a bossy four-year-old. I promise, I won’t bite.”

Not even if I want you to?
