Kindle Book Review: Someday by Willow Aster is Live!

Someday by Willow Aster is now live!  From childhood best friends to high school sweethearts…to a relationship so broken it seems impossible to fix… Check out my spoiler-free review below and read this book for free using Kindle Unlimited


I’ve loved Sofie Copewell for as long as I can remember.

She was all I ever wanted.

We said someday we’d have a family together and raise them on our ranch in Landmark Mountain.

She was my home. My forever.

I spent my whole life chasing her, hanging on her every word, and lighting up when she smiled at me.

And I never had a single doubt that she felt the same way.

Until she left and didn’t come back…

For eight years.

Now she’s returned, and I’m resentful and want answers.

Answers to why she left without a goodbye, taking all our dreams with her.

But as angry as I am and as much as I fight it, the electricity between us is still as strong as it was before.

And when I get the answers I’m looking for, I realize that she never stopped loving me either.

I want to believe our someday is now, but can I trust her not to leave again?

Someday is book two in the Landmark Mountain series, but each book can be read as a standalone.

The content warnings for Someday are the discussion of child and domestic abuse, and the death of a parent.

 Spoiler-free Review

Someday (Landmark Mountain #2)Someday by Willow Aster
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Someday (Landmark Mountain #2 by Willow Aster is the second book in the Landmark Mountain series. I adore The Landmark family! Someday by Willow Aster pulled on my heartstrings in a big way. Sofie left town and the love of her life for no apparent reason. She finally returns to her hometown after eight long years to move back to her parent's empty home and stable. Theo never got over Sofie abandoning him. Secrets and lies kept them apart. Can uncovering the truth bring them back together again? You will have to read it and see! The Landmark Mountain Series is an interconnected standalone series. You won't feel lost if you read Someday before reading Unforgettable (Landmark Mountain #1).

This book deals with some heavy topics, so check out Willow's content warning. I can't wait to read Marlow and Wyatt's book. Irresistible (Landmark Mountain #3 ) when it releases on 10/5!

I’m the privileged youngest child of the famous McKallister family. He’s a runaway foster kid living rough. We were never meant to meet. This is where our story begins. It’s nowhere near how it ends.


The beat. The cheers. The thrill of the unknown. I shouldn’t leave the safety of the music arena—my last name is McKallister, after all, and I’m intimately familiar with worst-case scenarios. But I’m drawn by the talent and the turmoil behind the weary eyes of the drummer on the streets. I’ve never seen anyone my age as wild and unrestrained, a lightning bolt of electricity that never hits the same spot on his bucket drums twice. He plays with such confidence, such rage. I have to know who he is and where he learned to bang out drum solos like he owns the night.

I want to help him. No, to save him. If only Rory will let me.


When I play, I’m in my element. I know how to draw a crowd and how to keep them riveted. For a small period of time every day, I’m special. Talented. Going somewhere. Little do they know I’m going back to nothing: no family, no friends, no roof over my head. When the music ends, I fade into the background like the undesirable I am. And then she shows up, so pretty and polished and pure. I don’t expect her to stay and talk. I definitely don’t expect her to sit down on the sidewalk and drum a song onto my thigh. Yet here she is—anyone’s ultimate dream girl—promising to save me.

Too bad Grace stumbled upon me a decade too late.

Grace Note (Cake, #7)Grace Note by J. Bengtsson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

4.5 stars - Grace Note is the captivating seventh installment in the Cake series. Grace McKallister is the big-hearted baby sister of the family who is dealing with some emotional baggage after dealing with traumatic events involving her family and her missing ex-boyfriend. Grace falls for Rory (Beats), an enigmatic homeless street drummer who Grace wants to help. She falls hard for him, and then Rory just up and disappears, leaving a massive hole in her heart. Rory's heartbreaking and tragic background comes back to haunt him in a big way. 

Grace Note deals with the power of human kindness, love, and second chances. You can read this emotion-packed romance as a standalone, but I recommend reading Cake (Cake Series #1) to understand her eldest brother's Jakes tragic past. One-click worthy!

LunaMare by Pepper Winters review video Kindle Crack 

Luna Mare (The Luna Duet #1) by Pepper Winters is one of my top reads of 2023. I'm lost in a sea of the feels after reading this book. I finished Luna Mare a few weeks ago and can't stop thinking about Aslan and Nerida. This coming-of-age, forbidden romance is both breathtaking and unputdownable.

Love Sick (Heart Memory Transfer #2) by Monica James is LIVE! Check out my spoiler-free review below. This book is twisted! *𝙆𝘾𝘽𝙍 𝙇𝙇𝘾 𝙝𝙖𝙨 𝙣𝙤𝙩 𝙗𝙚𝙚𝙣 𝙛𝙞𝙣𝙖𝙣𝙘𝙞𝙖𝙡𝙡𝙮 𝙘𝙤𝙢𝙥𝙚𝙣𝙨𝙖𝙩𝙚𝙙 𝙛𝙤𝙧 𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙨 𝙧𝙚𝙫𝙞𝙚𝙬. 𝙏𝙝𝙞𝙨 𝙞𝙨 𝙣𝙤𝙩 𝙖 𝙨𝙥𝙤𝙣𝙨𝙤𝙧𝙚𝙙 𝙥𝙤𝙨𝙩/𝙖𝙙.

Love Sick by Monica James ebook Kindle Crack

All I want is revenge.

But I’m afraid it will destroy me because I’m not a monster.

Or maybe I am.

And that’s thanks to Doctor Alanna Norton.

She’s tortured me.

She’s made me forget who I am.

And she’s done all this in the name of love.

But the love I feel for my son, who was stolen from me, will triumph. I won’t accept any other outcome.

There is another love which I will fight for—Dutch Atwood.

But what I find…the sting of betrayal lingers. I look at Dutch through new eyes; he doesn’t trust me, and I don’t trust him.

I’m faced with so many scenarios—I wish I knew how this story ends so I can make the right choice.

But there is no right in the hand I was dealt.

Alanna wants love so badly, so I intend to show her what true love looks like, because the only thing that matters is getting out of here…but not before I take from Alanna what she took from me.

Her heart.

Prepare to be consumed by the scorching intensity of What the Heart Wants by Nikki Ash. This intoxicating and wicked sensual m/f/m romance was unputdownable. Aubree embarks on a sensual journey of reawakening, embracing her desires after five long years of solitude and sadness from losing her husband.

Bree, Brody, and Hayden's unconventional relationship was filled with so much heart and heat. This insta-love story captivated my heart from the first to the last page.
