    Loverboy (The Company #2) by Sarina Bowen

    Release date: December 1st   Loverboy is a fun, easy-going romance that gave me the worst cravings for pies. The story is set, in part, in a pie-shop and there are way too many savory descriptions of pies in there. I mean, what the hell, Bowen! Like 2020 hasn’t been bad enough for peoples waistlines already! 😉 No, but seriously. There’s something so very appealing about books with lots of pastries in them, it just makes the whole story all the more homey and welcoming somehow. Anyway. So to the actual story; There’s Posy, pie-shop owner extraordinaire, recently divorced (from a complete tool) and struggling to find some good, reliable…

    Say You’ll Be Nine by Lucy Lennox

    This was a super sweet story, and very… unobtrusive in many ways. Objectively speaking, it was a perfectly fine read. But I’m sorry to say that it doesn’t deserve the outrageously high ratings it has gotten. (4.4 on Goodreads, 4.9 on Bookbub and 4.7 on Amazon!?) Lucy Lennox is a talented author. It’s high quality writing through-and-through. But I just couldn’t bring myself to like either of the main characters in this book. So my very subjective opinion about Say You’ll Be Nine might offend some Lennox fans. To me, this is a 3-star read. Simply because it’s very solid writing, story structure and generally the work of a professional.…

    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…

    Spring Strings by Lily Morton

    There were several reasons I picked this book. I wanted a short read, Lily Morton’s books are recommended left and right and I thought it was time for me to try her out, and – for some reason – I was under the impression Spring Strings would be steamy as hell. But instead of steam there was mostly sugar. So much sugar. Which isn’t a bad thing at all if that’s what you’re in the mood for. Synopsis: This is the unlikely story of supermodel Malachi who ends up passing out from bronchitis at a certain grumpy farmer’s property. Caden, the grouchy farmer in question who is really just a…

    Hard Knox (Havenwood #3) by Riley Hart

    This is a bi-awakening read that will melt your heart and and warm your insides. In a good way. Up until previously I actually avoided books by Riley Hart. And now, I’m kicking myself over that fact. I mean, Hart’s books are always highly rated on vendor-sites and are recommended on all the book forums. But somehow, I had gotten it into my head that her stories were always sickly sweet, low-angst and without any drama. Which I equated to boring. I still don’t know if my preconceived idea of Hart’s books always being sweet, low-angst stories is true or not since Hard Knox was both of those things. But it…

    A Pizza My Heart by Teagan Hunter

    A Pizza My Heart isn’t a new release, but it is an absolutely fabulous, feel-good romance. And what better way of supporting a great author than to spread the word? This is more or less the perfect rom-com. It has all the feels, it’s sexy, it’s funny and left me perfectly satisfied. The main characters, Wren and Foster, grew up together. When Foster left town, Wren was devastated to loose him. Now, four years later, he’s back after an ugly divorce and he’s determined to make Wren see him as more than a friend. By any means possible. Even if he has to make her agree to fake date him…

    Bet on Me by Saxon James

    Bet on Me is the newest release from Saxon James, an M/M author who is completely new to me. I’d label the story as a sweet, gay romance with a hint of suspense. And all in all, it was a great read. But I must admit, I chose this read because of the hunk of a man on the cover. I mean, look at those pecs and shoulders! Sure, the level of drool-worthiness of the cover model might be a somewhat subpar way of choosing my reading. But luckily it worked out this time since Bet on Me was pretty awesome. The story’s main characters are Taryn, a professional fotball…

    Just Be You by M. E. Parker

    Right. I hadn’t meant to write this review. Or rather, I hadn’t really planned on reading Just Be You by M.E. Parker, not just yet anyway. I have a lot of other books way higher up on my to-read list. However, I had such a craving for some Parker writing I couldn’t stop myself. In truth I was holding out for her next release in the Gilcrest Guys series, Resisting Rein, but that release appears to have been postponed. Just Be You is a lovely romance. It’s about Scott Cohen, musical genius, Grammy nominee and gay. And about his brother’s best – and also straight – friend, Marshall, who Scott’s…

    Only Ever You by C. D. Reiss

    This is a sugary sweet lovestory that will be available July 9. It’s about two childhood friends, Rachel and Sebastian, and their unconventional way to a happily ever after. As teenagers, they signed a contract promising to marry each other if they both were still single at 30. Then life happened, they were separated in college, lived in different cities and had relationships. More or less forgetting each other. Then one christmas, when they’re 30, they meet again. And they decide to honor the contract. I’m very conflicted about this read. It’s just so … sweet. Too sweet for me I realize. I love romance, but I very much prefer…

    Seven Shades of You by A. M. Johnson

    Seven Shades of You is the second installment in the Twin Hearts series. The first one, Let there be light, simply blew me away, and I expected nothing less of Seven Shades of You. I was not disappointed. Seven Shades is the love story of Indie and Kai. They’re both College students and couldn’t be more dissimilar at a first glance. Indie is an art-student. She’s bipolar with psychotic tendencies and uses her art as an outlet and a countermeasure. She sees the world in different colours than most, and fights a constant battle against her inner demons. Kai on the other hand is one of the best on the…
