Love Hard by Monica James Kindle Crack

Synopsis:

If love is an addiction, your first love is the first hit.
How many of you remember your first love?

Because falling in love for the first time…I remember that. And that’s the thing about your first love—we all have a love story.

But this isn’t a love story.
This is a life story.
The good.
The bad.
The heartache.
It’s all here.

Love is truly a battlefield…

Love is scary, and anyone who tells you otherwise is lying. When you love someone wholeheartedly, you leave yourself open to being destroyed…and that’s what I did, what I still do even though I know better.

But it doesn’t make a difference.

The best kind of love doesn’t make sense. But that doesn’t mean it doesn’t hurt.

This one-in-a-million story is mine, and if you take anything away from this book, it would be to never be afraid to love.

So, let me introduce myself. You may call me Z.
Buckle up, besties, because this will be a bumpy ride.

Love hits you when you least expect it.

Are you ready for the fall?

Spoiler-free Review:

Love Hard: A MemoirLove Hard: A Memoir by Monica James
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Love Hard: A Memoir by Monica James is the first book in Monica’s duet. This book is a love letter to anyone that dated a jackass or five. Z, the main character, dated her share, and this is her story. Z’s love life revolved around her writing and a few men - Mr. J, Bossman, S, Bo, and R. Every woman can relate to Z because we have all dated a few “winners.”
Z takes us on a raw, very real, and heartbreaking journey through her love life. Z is perfectly imperfect and maddening at times. I wanted to hug her and shake her at the same time. There were times my heart broke for Z. She learns that she is the most important person in her life, that she needs to love herself more than these men, and that this is her journey.

“This is so fxxxing personal, but it’s a memoir, so for it to be authentic, I had to pull back the layers, and like an onion, all it’s done is make me cry.”

Monica’s heartfelt and turbulent storytelling will make you feel. She also had me giggling about her foot kink and her Times Square fortune teller. If you read and loved 44 Chapters About Four Men by BB Easton, you will devour Love Hard. I have to say I loved both books!

The next book, Love Harder, will be released in September and will focus on new and old loves. Z loves her friends, and she knows I adore her ;)

When I Had You by SL Scott Ebook Kindle Crack

Synopsis:

His mere proximity causes my heart to beat wildly in my chest.


When I Had You, an all-new single dad, enemies to lovers, sports romance from New York Times bestselling author S.L. Scott is now available!



Cash Ryatt is a distraction.


It’s no secret the bad boy race car driver has built a reputation from two things. Winning and fu—front-page headlines. I’ve read he’s the best at both, but I have no intention of finding out firsthand.


I have my own plans, and they don’t include making the gossip sites as his next one-night stand. My three older brothers, his bosses, would never stand for it anyway.


So, how did I find myself daydreaming about the one man I’ve been forbidden from dating?

Spoiler-free Review:

When I Had YouWhen I Had You by S.L. Scott
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

“When I had you, I had everything.”

Race car driver Cash Ryatt came crashing into Marina Westcott’s life. Cash is a driver for the Westcott Racing team.  The notorious playboy race car driver falls for Marina Westcott, who is part owner of the team and a Hollywood star.  The two hit a few speed bumps and went off the tracks before getting a second chance at love.  I enjoyed this emotion-packed standalone romance. When I Had You by SL Scott is one-click-worthy. 

“You’re not just my soul, Marina. You’re the part of me that didn’t exist before I tasted your kiss. You’re the breath that feeds my lungs that I can’t survive without. You’re more important than my career or any race.”

Synopsis:

 “I’ll find you again.”

That was my husband Jesse’s dying promise, a vow I’m certain he’ll keep. This wasn’t the first lifetime Jesse and I shared, and since love never dies, we knew, someday, we would be reunited.

After he passed away, I thought I’d never experience a love like that again—not in this lifetime anyway—and I accepted that.

But fate had other plans for me…

I met Dev Abramson when his white German shepherd plowed into me in Central Park, knocking me flat on my back, then slathering my face with her effervescent kisses. I was instantly drawn to Dev’s calm, centered presence and to his dog, Sheba, who welcomed me like a long-lost friend.

Dev gave me his card, but I failed to follow up, something I deeply regretted. So, when our paths crossed a second time, I wasn’t about to let him slip away again. I needed to know more about the handsome jazz pianist.

I never expected to fall in love with Dev, but now that I have—I’m afraid if I tell him that I was married to Jesse, one of the most famous rock stars in the world, and that we have shared previous lifetimes—I’ll lose him.

But my connection with Dev was instantaneous and so deep—as if I’d known him forever.

And I can’t help but wonder, maybe I have…

Spoiler-free review: 

Love on the Edge of Forever (Love on the Edge of Time #2)Love on the Edge of Forever by Julie A. Richman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Imagine loving and losing someone over and over and finding their soul again. Prepare to be swept away on an emotional rollercoaster through time and love in Julie Richman's latest masterpiece, Love on the Edge of Forever (Book 2). This gripping sequel to Love on the Edge of Time (Book 1) delivers an unputdownable experience that will leave you breathless. Julie weaves an intricate web of eternal love, heart-wrenching loss, and unwavering devotion that transcends time. I was utterly captivated by Kylie and Jesse/Dev's journey from the first page to the last. I needed Kylie to find happiness again after losing the other half of her soul. 

Love on the Edge of Forever is an epic journey of the heart and soul. For those who have yet to embark on this unforgettable journey, I wholeheartedly recommend starting with Love on the Edge of Time to appreciate the depth of the characters' stories fully. Bravo, Julie Richman, for crafting a truly unforgettable tale that deserves nothing less than a chef's kiss!

What You Can Expect:

• AGE GAP

• WIDOWER

• BRITISH HERO

• FOUND FAMILY

• SLOW BURN

• FORBIDDEN

• STEAMY

• ENEMIES-TO-FRIENDS-TO-LOVERS


ABBY:

I’m falling for the father of the baby I’m carrying.

The problem is: it’s not my baby.

And the broody widower is not looking for a long-term partner.

As a surrogate, the deal was that I’d only be in England long enough to give birth.

At first, the man seemed as pretentious as his name: Sigmund Benedictus.

He and I butted heads.

Sig challenged my intentions, accused me of just wanting to do this for the money.

Gradually, he learned to trust me.

He even became protective.

Over time, our heated animosity turned into fiery chemistry.

I was falling in love with him.

But my time here had a limit.

I needed to protect my heart from the devastatingly gorgeous older man who’d end up breaking it.

SIG:

When my in-laws told me they wanted to use my dead wife’s eggs to conceive a grandchild, I wasn’t immediately on board.

They swore that on her deathbed Britney told them it was what she wanted—but only if I fathered the baby. Her parents insisted they would be the ones to raise it.

Against my better judgment, I agreed.

I vowed to keep my heart out of it, though.

I’d continue to pretend it wasn’t happening and live the empty, single life I’d become accustomed to the past five years since Britney died.

And despite the fact that a certain younger American named Abby Knickerbocker had awakened things inside me that I thought were long dead…

I most certainly wouldn’t fall in love with the surrogate.


Spoiler-free review: 

The SurrogateThe Surrogate by Penelope Ward
My rating: 5 of 5 stars


I was up until 2 am reading The Surrogate by Penelope Ward. Hands down, The Surrogate is one of my top favorite reads from Penelope. Heck, this book is one of my top favorite books. Period. I imagine it's tough to write a book that meets readers' expectations after they fall in love with a special side character. Readers (including myself) begged Penelope to write Sig's story after he appeared in The Aristocrat, which was released in 2021. Sig and Abby's beautiful emotion-packed story is going to sucker punch you with the feels. Let me tell you that this book was worth the wait.

Not only did Penelope deliver another incredible standalone romance, but she also made it worth the wait for Sig's story. For Abby, creating the baby was easy; getting into Sig's heart was as easy as peeling the skin of an onion and not crying. Sig was such a complex and prickly character with a huge grief case of emotional baggage. Abby, his selfless surrogate, had a heart of pure golden sunshine—these two characters were total opposites of each other. Abby not only carried a baby, but she also brought a broken Sig back to life. The angst, the build-up, and that ending had me alternating between biting my nails and shedding a few tears. The Surrogate pulled on all of my heartstrings and didn't let go. Penelope ruined me for the next book I plan to read since I now have a book hangover to deal with. I didn't know where this story would go, and I let Penelope guide my own heart on this emotional journey of the heart and soul. That ending. Those letters. The epilogue. The Surrogate owns a piece of my heart. Chef's kiss Penelope!

Loving Romeo Kindle Book Cover Laura Pavlov

SYNOPSIS: 

From USA Today and Amazon Bestselling Author Laura Pavlov comes a new Small Town, Enemies to Lovers, Standalone Sports Romance in the brand new Magnolia Falls Series.

 

Demi Crawford was Magnolia Falls royalty.

I was the boxer from the wrong side of the tracks.

She was the epitome of everything good, while I was broody and rebellious.

We couldn’t be more different.

Her family was enemy number one which made her guilty by association.

I despised her before I even knew her.

It was easier that way.

But now she’d moved in next door to me, and she was everywhere I turned.

I couldn’t avoid her no matter how hard I tried.

She was beautiful and honest and sweet.

Everything I knew I shouldn’t want.

Shouldn’t need.

They say there’s a fine line between love and hate—and I don’t know when I crossed over.

I was so wrapped up in this girl I couldn’t see straight.

She was the right hook I never saw coming.

Hating her was supposed to be my end game.

Loving her… well, that was just the beginning.

But the secrets that lived between us threatened to tear us apart.

Lucky for her—I was a born fighter.

And she was definitely worth the fight.


SPOILER-FREE REVIEW:

Loving Romeo by Laura Pavlov is the first book in her new Magnolia Falls series. This knockout small-town boxing romance hit in the feels with a solid 1-2 punch. I absolutely loved Romeo and Demi’s story. My husband and I love the Rocky movie series so much that our pugs are named after Rocky and Adrian. So when I found myself internally cheering for Romeo to win at life, love, and a significant match, I knew I was hooked and invested in these characters. I cannot wait to read the next books in this series of interconnected standalones. I will channel Rocky here and say, “Yo, Laura, The Queen of Small Town romance, you did it.” One-click worthy.

Before the Sunset by Laura Pavlov Kindle Crack
Synopsis: 

He’s an actor in need of an image makeover. She’s determined to show her ex-fiancΓ© that she’s moved on. A fake relationship between two best friends is the perfect solution. Or is it?

 

Reese Murphy has been my best friend since before we took our first steps.

She’s the yin to my yang.

The peanut butter to my jelly.

It’s all platonic, of course, as we made a pact years ago that we’d never cross the line.

But then she took a job abroad and moved away for a year.

To say I’ve been lost without her would be a massive understatement.

She’s finally coming home, and I couldn’t be happier about it.

And then she presents me with a proposition...

Pretend to be her boyfriend.

I am an actor, after all, so it should be a piece of cake.  

It’s all part of her grand plan to show her ex-fiancΓ© that she’s moved on.

My agent wants me to clean up my image, so it would be a win-win for both of us.

But then she moves into my house and prances around in those tiny pajama shorts.

There's also the night she catches me alone in the bathroom in a compromising position.

And she isn’t in any hurry to leave.

We get lost in the moment and now I can’t think of anything else.

We are way past a gray area at this point.

We’ve entered a smoking-hot-I-think-I-might-be-in-love-with-my-best-friend area.

The problem is, she still thinks we’re fake dating.

And I stopped faking it a long time ago.
