    Roommate by Sarina Bowen

    Release date: January 12th Oh my lordt I loved this book so much! It’s heartbreaking and beautiful. And there’s such a homey, incredibly friendly, inclusive and cozy feeling to this whole story I just want to move to Vermont right now! I cried, and cried some more, and then I got all warm and fuzzy and even though this is in fact NOT a True North book – it’s a standalone dammit – it’s now my favourite of all Bowen’s books taking place in the True North universe. I’m still on a reading-high (and also slightly red-eyed from happy-crying in the end) and I just can’t recommend this book enough!…

    Mainly by Moonlight (Bedknobs and Broomsticks #1) by Josh Lanyon

    So, I’m on somewhat of a Josh Lanyon trip right now. Like in the sense that I’ve been bingeing her work, series by series. Because her stories are frankly addicting and I just adore them. What’s weird is that I’m never really enticed by the blurbs to her books, but I’ve learned by now that that doesn’t matter. Because so far I’ve loved everything I’ve read. Anyway. Mainly by Moonlight. Cosmo Saville is a witch. He’s also about to get married to a non witch who’s completely unaware of the existence of magic. But when Cosmo happens to stumble upon a dead body, he becomes the prime suspect of murder.…

    Boyfriend Material by Alexis Hall

    Oh my effing gaawd, this book is bloody amazing! I love it so much and I’m so sad it’s over. I want a sequel, or another one just like it. And I definitely want more stories by Alexis Hall. And I can feel myself entering a massive book-hangover right now as I’m sitting and writing this review. Also, I listened to the audio, I didn’t read it. But the drawback with that format is that you can’t high-light stuff. Because I would have high-lighted the fuck out of this book. I might even end up buying the kindle version so I can do just that. Obviously, Boyfriend Material is worth…

    Demons Do It Better (Hidden Species #1) by Louisa Masters

    Wow. This was just an amazingly fun and endearing story. I just loved it. And I knew I’d love it from the very first page, and I’m not just saying that to try to make a point. In the first chapter, I highlighted 5 different sections. For me, that’s practically unheard of. So yes. This was definitely a 5-star read to me. Synopsis: Sam is just a regular (sort of) guy, working as an office admin. But being bored out of his mind with his current job, he’s applied to a new admin position at a place that in the ad guarantees adventure. As it turns out, it’s at the…

    Four Ever by Sloane Kennedy

    This is a seriously juicy story, but despite being about an all male, foursome relationship, it’s unexpectedly weighty and emotional. So, it’s actually not 320 pages of non-stop smut but a story of four lost individuals who manages to help each other heal. And then, there’s smut. Synopsis: Killian and Zak have been a couple for years, living together with a big family consisting of a menagerie of rescue animals. It seems idyllic, but since Killian was shot on the job 18 months prior, they started drifting apart and now they don’t know if they can ever find their way back to each other again. Then Zak, who works as a nurse, brings home two…

    White Trash Warlock by David R. Slayton

    This book was a surprise of the very best kind and I’m in absolute awe of the world-building. It’s hands down the most original story I’ve read in a long time. It’s gritty and harsh, but at the same time it’s all magic and limitless possibilities. It’s not often I get the feeling of stepping into a whole new universe when immersing myself in a story. Sure, each book is a small world of its own, but the imperative word there is small. And there’s nothing small about White Trash Warlock. Synopsis: Years earlier, Adam Binder’s brother locked him up in a psych ward because of his visions. But now…

    The Art of Murder series by Josh Lanyon

    So, I might have become slightly obsessed with Josh Lanyon’s mystery/suspense novels… I’ve been listening my way through the four installments of her The Art of Murder series and since the fifth one won’t be released until next year, I’ve continued on with The Adrien English Mysteries series. To say that I’m completely captivated is an understatement. The Art of Murder books are – so far – The Mermaid Murders, The Monet Murders, The Magician Murders and The Monuments Men Murders. The main character is Jason West, a Special Agent at the Arts Crime Team of the FBI. And despite the arts-y focus of his work, Jason keeps stumbling into…

    Face Offs & Cheap Shots by Eden Finley & Saxon James

    Release date: October 5th This was a true happy-read. The entire book, I just felt all warm inside. Sure, there’s snark and banter. And there’s a heck of a lot of sexytimes. But mostly it’s just an altogether feel-good story of two guys falling in love. And I highly recommend it to anyone needing a pick-me-up. Synopsis: Jacobs and Beck are hockey teammates and have always been rivals. Jacobs, attending Colchester University on a Hockey scholarship, despises Beck for his entitled and carefree way of never worrying about consequences. Beck is determined to enjoy himself during College. And one of his favourite pastimes is to get under Jacobs’ skin. They’re…

    The All’s Fair series by Josh Lanyon

    So here’s a quick recommendation for a great series I’ve just binge listened my way through the last couple of days. It’s the All’s Fair series, by Josh Lanyon, that had me totally hooked. It’s a three installment series; Fair Game, Fair Play and Fair Chance. Despite the uninspired and generic titles, they’re actually awesome stories. The series main character is the former FBI agent Elliot Mills. After a crippling injury, he left the bureau and is now working as a College history professor. In Fair Game, Elliot agrees to look into the disappearance of the son of a family friend. This forces him back in contact with agent Tucker Lance,…

    Lies & Lullabies (Hush Note #1) by Sarina Bowen

    Coming September 22nd  So, this one was a bit of a roller-coaster for me. Not only because of the emotional story – even though that did indeed contribute – but rather because of the trope. Synopsis: This is the story of Kira and Jonas. They meet during a summer that Jonas spends writing songs in Kira’s small home town. Kira doesn’t know he’s a rock star and when he leaves at summer’s end, she doesn’t know she’s pregnant. Five years later, Jonas rolls back into town and is confronted with a little girl that looks just like him. Jonas had never forgotten the magical summer he spent with Kira. And…
