    Bombshells (Brooklyn Bruisers #8) by Sarina Bowen

    Release date: April 13 As usual, I enjoyed the heck out of Sarina Bowen’s writing. And this was such an easy read. The story just pulled me in and I didn’t mind being swept away at all. I really, really liked the fact that Sylvie was a professional athlete. She was so strong and capable and trying to make a name for herself in a sport which is mostly viewed as a male one. That was beyond awesome. Synopsis: This is the story of Sylvie – a hockey goalie who’s earned a spot in a newly founded female hockey team in Brooklyn, and Anton – reformed player and also a…

    Sweetheart (Busy Bean #1) by Sarah Mayberry

    Release Date: March 1 This is a wonderful little story and a cute, low-angst romance. However, there’s a trigger that I was unaware of before starting, namely mental illness in a family member. And I can’t honestly say I would have read this book had I known that in advance. The romance-part in itself is low-angst and super sweet. But I can say with certainty that this story will not be perceived as such by those who have personal experience of a loved one with a mental disorder. Synopsis: This is the story of Haley, newly hired barista at the Busy Bean, and Beck, the hot lumberjack who roasts the…

    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!…

    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…

    COMING JANUARY 12, 2021 Wanted: One roommate to share a 3-bedroom house, split the rent, and ideally not be the guy I can’t stop thinking about.   I’m a man with too many secrets, so the last thing I need is a new roommate with a sexy smile and blue eyes that see right through me.

    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…

    Sure Shot by Sarina Bowen

    Coming May 12 I tried to hold off a bit, reading Sure Shot. Because I know that once I start one of Bowen’s books, I usually can’t put it down until I’ve finished it. And yes, that’s pretty much what happened. So, as per usual, I started out carefully trying to savor every word, but soon I was racing through to the end feeling a whole lot of feels and nursing a book hangover. Sure Shot is the latest installment in the Brooklyn Bruisers series. That’s hockey-themed romance of the very best kind. This series takes place in the kind of book universe where there are the same recurring characters…

    Heartland by Sarina Bowen

    Coming January 28th Heartland is the newest book in the True North series by Sarina Bowen and it’s another emotional rollercoaster with all the feels, just like the other True North books are. I did bawl a bit at one point. You know that ugly kind of crying involving snot. But don’t worry, there’s a happily ever after in the very end. Heartland is Dylan Shipley’s and Chastity’s story. Dylan is the College heartthrob, the altogether nice – but also a bit slutty – guy who’s devoted to his family and friends. And Chastity, she’s one of his very best ones. Raised in a religious cult, Chastity managed to escape…
