This is my second time reading a book by Mallory Crowe and I really enjoyed the hot billionaires in her novels. I loved Rourke's character because he was your typical alpha male billionaire who wants to protect the girl that he is in love with, but at the same time he can be sweet and caring. Cali's character was kind of annoying because she was back and forth all the time and she seemed whiny at times. I did not really get Easson's, Colin's and Walter's characters because Mallory did not explain their roles and give us a better back story on them in this book, hence I would not suggest reading this novel as a stand alone because it can be very confusing. Mallory's writing was good , but I felt there was a lot of loop holes in the book for example we would like to know more about Cali's character and her past as well as more about the feud between Luke and Rourke. The chemistry between Rourke and Cali was explosive and really well written. Overall this was a good book if you love alpha male billionaires and love stories filled with a bit of danger.
Cali has realized that she has had enough of the Devereaux brothers and after many years she finally decides to quit, but then she is given an offer she cannot refuse.

This is the third book that I am reading in the Hope Falls series and the fourth by author Melanie Shawn and this book has everything you expect from this series such as a sweet and short romance and the small town charm. I enjoyed Melanie's dual point of view style of writing and the simplicity of her characters as it made for a short and easy read. Eric's character was my favorite in the book because which girl does not love a hot alpha male in uniform, but I also loved his sweet and romantic side. Lily's character was a strong woman who has fought against all odds to survive in the cruel world and she does not use her past as an excuse to give up living which is what I enjoyed the most. The chemistry between Eric and Lily was sweet and romantic and was definitely brilliantly written. I enjoyed seeing the characters from the other books in this series, but I suggest you read the series in order because I was getting a little confused because I have not read all the characters stories. I did wish that there was more drama in the book and that the displayed the danger aspect a bit more. Overall this was a short and sweet romantic novel set in the charming town of Hope Falls and if you love dogs you will definitely enjoy this book.

After a very long time did I enjoy a book so much to the point that I was addicted and unable to put the book down until I had completed reading it. This was my first time reading a book by Jessica Prince and I loved her writing style because it manged to evoke so many emotions from me. I loved the strength in Emerson's character because she was able to get over her heartache and move on with life and she also learnt from her past mistakes which only made her a better person. The alpha male qualities of Luke's character is what I loved most about him, but he annoyed me when he felt he just come back and apologize and that will take all the pain and heartache away and everything will go back to normal. The secondary characters in the book of all Emerson and Luke's friends were well written and conceived and I especially loved Savannah's character and her loyalty towards her best friend. The introduction of these characters definitely laid the foundation for a brilliant series. The chemistry between Luke and Emerson was good and I really enjoyed their more romantic moments together. Overall this is a brilliant book filled with strong friendships, pain, heartache and unrelenting love and it will definitely take you on a emotional roller coaster with the characters.

This is the story of family enemies falling in love and trying to fight the odds to be together. It was my first time reading a book by Emerson Rose and I really enjoyed her dual point of view writing style as well as her funny captions before each chapter. I loved Beau's character because he was sweet and charming, but at the same time he had all the alpha male qualities the I love in my male characters. Charlotte's character was that of a submissive who did what everyone told her to do and the only time she stood up for herself was against her parents. The chemistry between Beau and Charlotte was extremely hot and definitely my favorite part of the book. I also enjoyed the inclusion of Alzheimer's disease and diabetes because it made the characters and their problems more realistic. I did wish that there was more drama in the book and the family feud part of the story was explored a bit more. Overall this was a great read of enemies turning into lovers with explosive chemistry between the lead characters.

I have always been a fan of Susan Hatler, especially the short romances in this particular series and this is by far my most favorite book in the Better Date than Never series. Susan's writing style was fun and flawless, but I did wish the book was dual point of view so we could get to know Paul's character a bit better. I loved Paul's character because he was such a sweet romantic guy, but I did wish that he did not lie to Katlin. I found Katlin's character a bit annoying because she was going on dates just so she can get a free paint job and she was getting guys hopes up for nothing. The chemistry between Paul and Katlin was sweet and romantic and I really enjoyed it, but I did wish that the book was longer as I was really enjoying the story. Overall this was great short and sweet romance which will leaving you feeling warm and happy.

This was my second time reading a book by this author in this series and I would recommended this to anyone who wants a short and sweet romance to read. The dual writing style by Miranda was good and it allowed you to understand both characters better. I loved Erin's character because she was not afraid to demand what she wanted as well as she was willing to sacrifice for the man she loved. Brad's character was enjoyable, but I wish I saw a more possessive side of him. The chemistry between Brad and Erin was good, but I wished we saw more of it. The story was a bit cliche and predictable, but it is a good romance to read in your spare time.
