[Review] CALL HER MINE (Harmony Point, #1) by Melissa Foster

Source: Received a sample copy through work/the Canadian distributor, Thomas Allen & Son.
Publisher: Montlake Romance
Release Date:  August 13, 2019
Number of Pages: 266 (Paperback)


Two besties and a baby make for an instafamily and a surprising romance in a delightful series by Melissa Foster, the New York Times bestselling author of the Sugar Lake novels.

Ben Dalton has always been honest, except where his heart is concerned. He’s been in love with his best friend—saucy, smart-mouthed Aurelia Stark—forever. But Ben’s a planner, and timing has never been on his side. When he finally decides to make his move, Aurelia beats him to the punch with a move of her own—to a different town.

Aurelia loves her new life in the charming town of Harmony Pointe. She has a great apartment and her very own bookstore, and best of all, the sinfully hot, commitment-phobic friend she’s crushed on for years is no longer just around the corner. Maybe she’ll finally be able to leave her unrequited love behind and move on.

But when a baby is left on Ben’s front porch—a baby that is presumably his—Aurelia is there for him. Neither one knows the first thing about babies, but how hard can it be? Ben and Aurelia are catapulted into a world of love, laughter, and tracking down the baby mama, and it might even add up to a very happily ever after… just not one either of them expects.


Well this was an absolute delight! 

I’m a sucker for books where we get to see sexy dudes doting on kids and CALL HER MINE was perfection when it came to that! Our leading man, Ben, also doted on his leading lady, Aurelia, and I loved him for that, too. Since it’s mentioned in the description, I’m not spoiling the fact that there’s a baby in this book and she was super duper cute. :) 

I loved Ben and I loved Aurelia! I absolutely loved them together...and I loved their little family! 

I have a lot of favourite tropes, and I tend to read hate-to-love more than friends-to-lovers, and I gravitate toward that more for the snarky banter and the slow-burn chemistry, but CALL HER MINE managed to pull all that off without any sort of hate. Aurelia and Ben are best friends who have both been secretly in love with each other for fact, they’ve both been thinking that their counterpart doesn’t like them romantically so they’ve been pining away...but a little surprise, in the form of a baby on Ben’s doorstep, pushes them to admit their feelings and become an “instafamily” and it was so adorable to read. I loved the teasing banter between Ben and Aurelia, their crazy intense and steamy chemistry, and I loved them with little baby many swoony and heartwarming moments! And funny ones, too! I’m definitely going to have to go back to meet the rest of the Daltons now too because Ben’s family is fabulous. ;)

Star Rating:


Overall, I absolutely LOVED CALL HER MINE! If you’re a fan of friends-to-lovers romances, steamy chemistry, and romances where you see the main characters grow in love and build a family together, then you’ll love this one, too. ;)

[Review] I FLIPPING LOVE YOU (Shacking Up, #3) by Helena Hunting

Source: Purchased.
Publisher: St. Martin's Paperbacks
Release Date: May 29, 2018
Number of Pages: 320 (Mass Market)


A new kind of love story about flipping houses, taking risks, and landing that special someone who’s move-in ready…


Rian Sutter grew up with the finer things in life. Spending summers in The Hamptons was a normal occurrence for her until her parents lost everything years ago. Now Rian and her sister are getting their life, and finances, back on track through real estate. Not only do they buy and sell houses to the rich and famous, but they finally have the capital to flip their very own beachfront property. But when she inadvertently catches the attention of a sexy stranger who snaps up every house from under her, all bets are off…


Pierce Whitfield doesn’t normally demo kitchens, install dry wall, or tear apart a beautiful woman’s dreams. He’s just a down-on-his-luck lawyer who needed a break from the city and agreed to help his brother work on a few homes in the Hamptons. When he first meets Rian, the attraction is undeniable. But when they start competing for the same pieces of prime real estate, the early sparks turn into full-blown fireworks. Can these passionate rivals turn up the heat on their budding romance — without burning down the house?

I FLIPPING LOVE YOU, set in the Shacking Up world, follows two people, both working in real estate, who find themselves vying for the same properties in the Hamptons, leading to a sometimes-not-so-friendly competition.


Why oh why did I ever wait to read this?! I should’ve picked it up and read it the moment that I had it in my hands! 😉 I absolutely loved I FLIPPING LOVE YOU

Pierce and Rian were so fantastic and their chemistry was off the charts!!! Loved their banter, and every single interaction between them! Rian was snarky, smart, sassy, and so inspiring. She’s been through so much and I loved seeing Pierce push his way through her walls and into her heart. And Pierce...wowzers! I usually love Helena’s leading guys so I was expecting to like him, but holy heck I absolutely adored him! He was sweet, cocky, so damn sure of himself, incredibly sexy, supportive, good with his hands, and just all-around wonderful. I loved him so freaking much and paired with Rian, they were phenomenal!

Star Rating:


I loved this pairing. I loved this story...I seriously loved everything about this book! Read it, read it, read it if you love romances with sizzling chemistry, fabulous banter, and sinfully sexy leads. You can read this as a standalone or as part of the Shacking Up series, totally up to you. ❤️

[Review] THE BROMANCE BOOK CLUB (Bromance Book Club, #1) by Lyssa Kay Adams

Source: Received an ARC from the publisher.
Publisher: Berkley
Release Date:  November 5, 2019
Number of Pages: 352 (Paperback)


The first rule of book club: You don't talk about book club.

Nashville Legends second baseman Gavin Scott's marriage is in major league trouble. He’s recently discovered a humiliating secret: his wife Thea has always faked the Big O. When he loses his cool at the revelation, it’s the final straw on their already strained relationship. Thea asks for a divorce, and Gavin realizes he’s let his pride and fear get the better of him.

Welcome to the Bromance Book Club.

Distraught and desperate, Gavin finds help from an unlikely source: a secret romance book club made up of Nashville's top alpha men. With the help of their current read, a steamy Regency titled Courting the Countess, the guys coach Gavin on saving his marriage. But it'll take a lot more than flowery words and grand gestures for this hapless Romeo to find his inner hero and win back the trust of his wife.


First Impressions...

Absolutely LOVED The Bromance Book Club! I loved Thea and I loved Gavin, and I'm definitely excited to see what else the Bromance Book Club is going to get into!!! 

This Book In 5 Words:

Brotastic. Enlightening. Fun. Heartening. Dramatic.

What Did I Like: 

- The whole "Bromance" Book Club aspect was amazing! I loved the book club concept and love, love, loved how the guys supported each other and turned to romance books to help them fix their marital issues and better understand their partners! Such a neat idea!

- The amazing way that feminism and equality were handled throughout the story. I absolutely LOVED how much conversation was had throughout this book. I loved that the guys actually talked things out and how they worked together and pushed each other to become better feminists. Honestly, the way the men discussed women's issues and how to better understand their partners, who in this book happened to be women, was absolutely wonderful. Gavin was a bit oblivious sometimes, but he genuinely wanted to learn and his bros totally helped him. I really loved seeing him open up to their help and push himself to understand what went wrong in his relationship with Thea. :)

- The way that Gavin and Thea worked to get to know each other and to heal their relationship. Some of the arguments and drama in this story were a bit ridiculous and not necessarily believable, but I did love that once Gavin and Thea were both committed to trying to heal their relationship that their communication did improve.

- Both Thea and Gavin had some emotional hang-ups in regards to their self-confidence, and I loved that they both accepted each other as they were. They didn't try to fix each other, but instead focused on supporting their partner which was so lovely. :)

What Didn't I Like:

- While I loved this book in general, I did find that while reading I felt like I was distanced from Thea and Gavin, and I didn't quite connect with them as well as I would've liked. I think it was a bit of a combo of the tense that the book was written in and the fact that when this book starts Gavin and Thea are already in a relationship, so we kind of missed the whole beginning of their story.

Star Rating:


Overall, I loved THE BROMANCE BOOK CLUB! I loved the whole idea of the book club full of guys reading romance books in order to better understand women, and the execution of the club was even better than I'd hoped for! I really enjoyed Thea and Gavin's story despite feeling a bit distanced from them, and I'm definitely looking forward to seeing what happens with our favourite bros and book club in future books! ;)

[Review] HEARTLAND (True North, #7) by Sarina Bowen

Source: Received an egalley through the author in exchange for an honest review.
Publisher: Tuxbury Publishing LLC
Release Date: January 28, 2020
Number of Pages: 329 (Paperback)


An emotional friends to lovers romance full of risky secrets and late-night lessons in seduction.

Dylan is my best friend, and the only person in my life who understands me. He doesn’t mind my social awkwardness or my weird history. The only glitch? He doesn’t know that I’ve been hopelessly, desperately in love with him since the first day we picked apples together in his family’s orchard.

But I know better than to confess.

Now that we’re both in college together, I’m seeing a new side of him. College Dylan drinks and has a lot of sex. None of it with me.

Until the night I foolishly ask him to tutor me in more than algebra…and he actually says yes.

But the cool morning light shows me how badly I’ve endangered our friendship. And I don’t know if anything will be the same again.

This Book In 5 Words:

Sexy. Slow-burn. Heartwarming. Cute. Silly.

What Did I Like: 

- Chastity and Dylan! I absolutely LOVED both of them! I loved seeing Chastity push herself to try new things (avoiding spoilers so I'll just say that she had a seriously sheltered/fairly messed up background), and I loved Dylan. He was a total manwhore, but he also incredibly kind and I loved that his promiscuity wasn't his biggest personality trait. Instead, Dylan was fun, charming, super generous, and while he was a bit oblivious, his heart was always in the right place. Chastity was strong, fierce, and I loved seeing her grow more confident and sassy throughout the story!!!

- The friends-to-lovers trope! The friendship between Chastity and Dylan was so goooood! They were absolutely adorable together, and I loved how supportive they were of each other! I loved that they were such good friends, and I definitely loved seeing that friendship shift! They completed each other so well, and the support they had for each other only got better as the story progressed!

- The romance! This book was HOT! Not only did I love the way that the romance developed between Dylan and Chastity, but it was also super steamy and I was 100% here for it. Their chemistry was phenomenal and this book reminded me just how super well Sarina Bowen does steam...she's seriously a queen when it comes to steam!!! *heart eyes*

What Didn't I Like:

- The miscommunications. The only reason I bumped this from a full-on 5-star to a 4.5 rating was that I felt that some of the dramatic bits in the story that were caused by miscommunication went on a little bit too long. Obviously since I only bumped it down .5 a star, it didn't keep me from loving the story though. :P

Star Rating:


Overall, I absolutely LOVED HEARTLAND! Dylan and Chastity were so wonderful! I loved their friendship, their romance, and I super duper adored their story! Highly recommend this one to fans of college romances, the friends-to-lovers trope, and romance readers who like their books super sexy! ;)

[Blog Tour Review + Excerpt] TWEET CUTE by Emma Lord

Source: Received an egalley through the publisher and an ARC from Indigo Books
Publisher: Wednesday Books
Release Date: January 21, 2020
Number of Pages: 368 (Hardcover)


A fresh, irresistible rom-com from debut author Emma Lord about the chances we take, the paths life can lead us on, and how love can be found in the opposite place you expected.

Meet Pepper, swim team captain, chronic overachiever, and all-around perfectionist. Her family may be falling apart, but their massive fast-food chain is booming ― mainly thanks to Pepper, who is barely managing to juggle real life while secretly running Big League Burger’s massive Twitter account.

Enter Jack, class clown and constant thorn in Pepper’s side. When he isn’t trying to duck out of his obscenely popular twin’s shadow, he’s busy working in his family’s deli. His relationship with the business that holds his future might be love/hate, but when Big League Burger steals his grandma’s iconic grilled cheese recipe, he’ll do whatever it takes to take them down, one tweet at a time.

All’s fair in love and cheese ― that is, until Pepper and Jack’s spat turns into a viral Twitter war. Little do they know, while they’re publicly duking it out with snarky memes and retweet battles, they’re also falling for each other in real life ― on an anonymous chat app Jack built.

As their relationship deepens and their online shenanigans escalate ― people on the internet are shipping them?? ― their battle gets more and more personal, until even these two rivals can’t ignore they were destined for the most unexpected, awkward, all-the-feels romance that neither of them expected.

First Impressions...

Gah!!! I loved this so freaking much! Have you ever finished a book and loved it so much that you wish you hadn't finished it just so that you could go back and immediately read it again for the first time? Well, that's how TWEET CUTE made me feel...*happy sobs*

This Book In 5 Words:

Adorable. Funny. Amazing. Sassy. Sweet.

What Did I Like: 

- Everything..seriously this book was packed full of snark, cuteness, flirty banter, and all of the goodness that make rom-coms so wonderful!

- The characters! Pepper and Jack were absolutely amazing! I loved them both, and I adored seeing them get to know each other on so many levels. I also loved seeing how they both helped each other come into themselves and fight for their dreams. The secondary characters were also fantastic, especially Jack's Grandma Belly and some of Pepper and Jack's classmates. :)

- The You've Got Mail parallels...You've Got Mail is my absolute favourite rom-com, so anytime I get to read a book that can be compared to it, I jump at the chance, and TWEET CUTE used the tropes/similar setups perfectly!

- The story itself! Twitter Wars! Grilled Cheese! Memes Galore! Seriously this book was so much fun, and I loved how pop culture and social media was woven so intricately throughout the story. I also adored the romance so much. It was sweet, and so, so wonderful! It left me swoony, and super happy...the epilogue in particular had me smiling like crazy! Also...their shipname...adorable! :D

What Didn't I Like:

- Hmmm....honestly, nothing. I seriously loved TWEET CUTE and highly recommend it!

Star Rating:


Read If You Like:

Rom-coms, especially if you're a fan of You've Got Mail! I think you'll also love this one if you're a fan of contemporaries, and if you have a soft spot for funny Twitter exchanges/any and all memes, you'll love it even more!

Overall, I absolutely loved TWEET CUTE! I thought it was wonderful, and I adored Pepper and Jack! TWEET CUTE is packed full of classic rom-com goodness and is sure to make you swoon, sigh, giggle, and just pretty much feel ALL THE THINGS!


      “Look.” I glance into the classroom, where Ethan is thoroughly distracted by Stephen and no longer keeping an eye on us. “I may have . . . overreacted.” 

      Pepper shakes her head. “I told you. I get it. It’s your family.”

      “Yeah. But it’s also—well, to be honest, this has been kind of good for business.”
      Pepper’s brow furrows, that one little crease returning. “What, the tweets?”

      “Yeah.” I scratch the back of my neck, sheepish. “Actually, we had a line out the door yesterday. It was kind of intense.”

      “That’s . . . that’s good, right?”

      The tone of my voice is clearly not matching up with the words I’m saying, but if I’m being honest, I’m still wary of this whole overnight business boom. And if I’m being honest, I’m even more wary of Pepper. If this really is as much of a family business as she claims it is—to the point where she’s helping run the Twitter handle, when even I know enough about corporate Twitter accounts to know entire teams of experienced people get paid to do that—then she might have had more of a hand in this whole recipe theft thing than she’s letting on.

      The fact of the matter is, I can’t trust her. To the point of not knowing whether I can even trust her knowing how our business is doing, or just how badly we need it.

      “Yeah, um, I guess.” I try to make it sound noncommittal. My acting skills, much like my breakfast-packing skills, leave much to be desired.

      “So . . .”


      Pepper presses her lips into a thin line, a question in her eyes.

      “So, I guess—if your mom really wants you to keep tweeting . . .”

      “Wait. Yesterday you were pissed. Two minutes ago you were pissed.”

      “I am pissed. You stole from us,” I reiterate. “You stole from an eighty-five-year-old woman.”

      “I didn’t—”

      “Yeah, yeah, but still. You’re them, and I’m . . . her. It’s like a choose your fighter situation, and we just happen to be the ones up to bat.”

      “So you’re saying—you don’t not want me to keep this up?”

      “The way I see it, you don’t have to make your mom mad, and we get a few more customers in the door too.”

      Pepper takes a breath like she’s going to say something, like she’s going to correct me, but after a moment, she lets it go. Her face can’t quite settle on an expression, toeing the line between dread and relief.

      “You’re sure?”

      I answer by opening the container she handed me. The smell that immediately wafts out of it should honestly be illegal; it stops kids I’ve never even spoken to in their tracks.

      “Are you a witch?” I ask, reaching in and taking a bite of one. It’s like Monster Cake, the Sequel—freaking Christmas in my mouth. I already want more before I’ve even managed to chew. My eyes close as if I’m experiencing an actual drug high—and maybe I am, because I forget myself entirely and say, “This might even be better than our Kitchen Sink Macaroons.”

      “Kitchen Sink Macaroons?”

      Eyes open again. Yikes. Note to self: dessert is the greatest weapon in Pepper’s arsenal. I swallow my bite so I can answer her.

      “It’s kind of well-known, at least in the East Village. It even got in some Hub Seed roundup once. I’d tell you to try some, but you might steal the recipe, so.”

      Pepper smiles, then—actually smiles, instead of the little smirk she usually does. It’s not startling, but what it does to me in that moment kind of is. Before I can examine the unfamiliar lurch in my stomach, the bell rings and knocks the smile right off her face. I follow just behind her, wondering why it suddenly seems too hot in here, like they cranked the air up for December instead of October. I dismiss it by the time I get to my desk—probably just all the Twitter drama and the glory of So Sorry Blondies getting to my head.

      “One rule,” she says, as we sit in the last two desks in the back of the room.

      I raise my eyebrows at her.
      “We don’t take any of it personally.” She leans forward on her desk, leveling with me, her bangs falling into her face. “No more getting mad at each other. Cheese and state.”

      “What happens on Twitter stays on Twitter,” I say with a nod of agreement. “Okay, then, second rule: no kid gloves.”

      Mrs. Fairchild is giving that stern look over the room that never quite successfully quiets anyone down. Pepper frowns, waiting for me to elaborate.

      “I mean—no going easy on each other. If we’re going to play at this, we’re both going to give it our A game, okay? No holding back because we’re . . .”

      Friends, I almost say. No, I’m going to say. But then—

      “I’d appreciate it if even one of you acknowledged the bell with your silence,” Mrs. Fairchild grumbles.

      I turn to Pepper, expecting to find her snapping to attention the way she always does when an adult comes within a hundred feet of disciplining her. But her eyes are still intent on me, like she is sizing something up—like she’s looking forward to something I haven’t anticipated yet.

      “All right. No taking it personally. And no holding back.”

      She holds her hand out for me to shake again, under the desk so Mrs. Fairchild won’t see it. I smile and shake my head, wondering how someone can be so aggressively seventeen and seventy-five at the same time, and then I take it. Her hand is warm and small in mine, but her grip is surprisingly firm, with a pressure that almost feels like she’s still got her fingers wrapped around mine even after we let go.

      I turn back to the whiteboard, a ghost of a smirk on my face. “Let the games begin.”

[Cover Reveal] A ROYAL MISTAKE ( #2) by Piper Rayne

Lately, I've been gushing about Piper and Rayne's The Baileys series...but today I have an amazing cover to share for one of the books in their upcoming trilogies, A ROYAL MISTAKE, book 2 in The Rooftop Crew series!

The Rooftop Crew #2
 By Piper Rayne
Release Date: March 31, 2020

He’s not your average Joe from the corner bar.
He’s the heir to the crown.

I should know, I’ve followed him for years.
Not in a stalkerish way. Magazines and online gossip blogs are fair game when you’re royalty.
But I do know every detail about him, down to the brand of boxer briefs he wears.

All my studying  of the man who plays a starring role in my dreams pays off when I win a dinner with him. As if that wasn’t enough, he barters a deal with me that has him moving into my spare guest room.

I forgot that fairytales don’t exist though because just as I’m about to get everything I want, including the prince, I find out there’s someone in Prince Adrian Marx’s life I don’t know—his fiancée.

[Cover Reveal] DOCTOR DEAREST by R.S. Grey

Rom-com lovers gather round because today I have a simply gorgeous cover and a super tempting synopsis to share with you all!

The amazing R. S. Grey has a new book, DOCTOR DEAREST, coming on February 6th! Scroll on down to see the cover and read more to find out what this lovely book is all about!

About DOCTOR DEAREST (available February 6th)


Dr. Easton is part man, part myth.
He’s a formidable surgeon. Highly respected in his field.
He also happens to be an ex-collegiate quarterback with a classically handsome face.
Are you catching on yet?
He’s horrible.
A walking Ralph Lauren ad.
He’s also so off limits he should come with a warning label: This way lies heartache.

Not only is he an attending at the hospital where I’m training, he’s also my brother’s best friend. If you’ve lost count, that’s two reasons why I plan on putting this ridiculous crush behind me. Besides, it’s definitely not mutual.

Dr. Easton has never once paid me special attention. No tempting smirks. Not even one subtle innuendo. To him, I’m just another resident—all but invisible.


For the last five years, I’ve mentored Natalie in the OR, stayed in line, and kept my hands to myself, but it’s been agonizing.

Natalie is trouble in scrubs. A walking temptation I’ve been forced to ignore.

For so long, I’ve wanted her in silence. By the time fate finally gets around to throwing me a bone, my patience has run out.

Natalie’s brother is leaving town, and he wants me to watch over her while he’s gone.

He has no idea how I feel about her.
Neither does she.
But she will.

Haven’t you heard good things come to those who wait, Natalie? 
Well…I’ve done my waiting.

DOCTOR DEAREST releases February 6th
Keep an eye on R.S. Grey's Facebook page for the link!

[Blog Tour Review] CONFESSIONS OF A NAUGHTY NANNY (The Baileys #6) by Piper Rayne

(The Baileys #6)
By Piper Rayne
Source: Received from Wildfire Marketing Solutions to participate in blog tour.
Release Date: January 7, 2020

When a famous music producer moves to Lake Starlight it can’t just be a coincidence. It’s the universe helping to move things along in the right direction so that Griffin Thorne can discover me.

I have to confess—I’ll do whatever it takes to make that happen.

Confession #1: I may have overhead that he was in search of a nanny. What can I say? My brother has a big mouth.

Confession #2: It’s possible I helped along the assumption that I had nanny experience. Hey, babysitting my nieces and nephew counts, right?

Confession #3: There’s a good chance I oversold my qualifications. But my Grandma Dori backed me up, so it’s not completely my fault.

And it worked. He hired me. Only for me to find out that he left the business.
I guess it’s on to Plan B.

When he accidentally overhears me singing, I expect nothing from him. Then he asks to work with me on a song for our town’s Founder’s Day Parade and it feels like a dream come true. Until...

Confession #4: I’ve fallen for him.



I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from this one because until now we’ve only gotten a tiny peek into who Phoenix is, but oh boy, I was super pleasantly surprised!

We’re working our way through all of the Bailey siblings as they find love and in this book, we’re focusing on one of the youngest Bailey siblings, Phoenix! I was so glad to finally get a clearer picture on who she was and I really loved her character. Phoenix was fierce, she was determined, and I love how she speaks her mind...sometimes purposely for the shock value, especially when teasing her twin sister, Sedona, is involved.

In regards to the romance aspect of this one, I loved it so much and I really loved Phoenix and Griffin! Their chemistry was off the charts and their relationship dynamics were really interesting—I especially loved how they balanced each other out. I loved that they shared certain similarities, but also that they approached things in such different ways. What I loved most though was how they grew to understand each other and that their relationship evolved in such an authentic and organic, so good!

Overall, I thought this was an absolutely amazing addition to this series! I’m still loving seeing all of the family dynamics and I really adore how with each book we continue to see the past couples and that they all continue to evolve and grow! If you’re a fan of companion series that are sexy, sweet, and full of heart, don’t sleep on this series! It’s quickly become one of my favourites and I have loved every single book so far! 🥰
