Review and Giveaway–Can’t Stop Lovin’ You by Lynnette Austin

 

May Contain Spoilers

Review:

I couldn’t resist the combination of a small town and a veterinarian hero.  Plus, Can’t Stop Lovin’ You features a second chance at love trope, and you all know how much I love those!  I enjoyed this book, though I thought there were a few pacing issues near the middle that kept it from getting a higher grade.  I really liked Brawley, the contrite hero, but I wondered if he would be able to convince Maggie that he deserved a second chance.

Cover Reveal: Hold On Tight by Serena Bell

This morning I have a cover reveal for Serena Bell’s Hold On Tight.  Check it out!

A note from author Serena Bell…

Hold on Tight, my June release, is all about secrets. Mira Shipley’s secret baby, the one she conceived with army Ranger Jake Taylor before he vanished for eight years. The secrets Jake keeps from Mira even once he’s home from war, emotionally battered and physically injured. And the biggest secret of all—the one they’re both keeping—how strong their feelings are, and how fast they’re falling for each other.

So I figured it was time to let one secret out of the bag: Hold on Tight’s fabulous cover. Without further ado, here’s the first peek at Mira and Jake:

Novella Review: Cursed by Cupid by Wendy Sparrow

 

 

May Contain Spoilers

Review:

What a cute story!  I loved both Tilly and Byrant.  Tilly unwisely ignored the dire predictions in a chain letter, and her love life has been cursed ever since.  If there’s a good looking, single guy in the area, she will, without a doubt, turn into a klutz and completely humiliate herself in front of him.  Flying milkshakes, tripping into doors, landing in a plate of shrimp linguine – each scenario is embarrassingly possible, and has domed her to a life of being depressingly single.

Review: Staking His Claim by Tessa Bailey

May Contain Spoilers

Review:

I’m just a little torn about Staking His Claim.  I loved the set up – Lucy’s big brother has asked his buddy, Matt, to pick her and her friend up and drive them to NYC.  When Sasha blows her off to cuddle up with her boyfriend, Lucy’s resigned to going solo – until she sees Matt.  She impulsively lies and tells Matt that she’s Sasha, and that Lucy has headed off with her boyfriend.  She knows that Matt would never put the moves on her if he knew who she really was, and she’s dying to get to know Matt better.  When his car breaks down, forcing them to check into a motel, they give into their attraction for each other, and Lucy realizes, with a sick feeling in the pit of her stomach, that she’s made a terrible mistake.  She really likes Matt, and he brings out a wild side of her she didn’t know she possessed.  Once Matt realizes that he’s been duped, though, she knows that he’ll never forgive her.

Review: Forever by Karen Ann Hopkins

Review:

Let the Drama Fest begin!  And, sadly, end, in the last book of Karen Ann Hopkins’s series of forbidden love.  Rose and Noah make so many poor decisions, cause so much misery for themselves, but I can’t help but hope that they find a path to happiness.  Both of them have lied, acted in ways that they know is wrong, and I still sympathize with them.  Their families, and Noah’s community, conspire to keep them apart, when all they long for is to be together.  Because both are young and willful, they are determined to find a way to be together, even with so much opposition to their relationship.  After tragedy strikes, Noah realizes that life is too short to allow his community to drive him away from Rose, and he leaves the Amish church.  Will he be happy in the English world?
