Review: Good Intentions (Intentions Duet #2) by Ella Frank

Rating: 4.5🌈 “GABRIEL ROMERO HAD just hung up on me. No goodbye. No “we’ll talk about this when you get back.” That charming, persistent young man had called me up, lobbed several accusations my way, and then ended our conversation before I was through talking to him.” — Good Intentions (Intentions Duet Book 2) by… Continue reading Review: Good Intentions (Intentions Duet #2) by Ella Frank

Review: Bad Intentions (Intentions Duet #1) by Ella Frank

Rating: 4.5🌈 I go into writing a review for a Ella Frank2 book series fighting the impulse to combine my reviews for both stories into one. Usually I’ve read both novels, one right after the other. And also because each story is truly one half of the same book. Good Intentions (Intentions Duet #2) literally… Continue reading Review: Bad Intentions (Intentions Duet #1) by Ella Frank

Review: Sailor Proof (Shore Leave #1) by Annabeth Albert

Rating: 4 🌈 Sailor Proof , the first book in Annabeth Albert’s series about a submariners group of men, is a wonderful contemporary romance. Low on the angst, it’s sweet, fake boyfriend trope that quickly turns real over the course of a massive group family annual camp outing. It all starts with dumped Naval Chief… Continue reading Review: Sailor Proof (Shore Leave #1) by Annabeth Albert

Review: Rule Breaker (Mixed Messages #1) by Lily Morton

Rating: 3.5🌈 Lily Morton is a go to author for me. Her stories are full of humor, believable situations, and emotional, relationships that have the ability to have you laughing and sniffing, sometimes at the same time. There’s often one particular element I can find, not even a major one, that will have me wanting… Continue reading Review: Rule Breaker (Mixed Messages #1) by Lily Morton

Review: A Sanctuary for Soulden (The Lords of Bucknall Club #4) by J.A. Rock and Lisa Henry

Rating: 4.5 🌈 In Rock and Henry’s marvelous Regency series, The Lords of Bucknall Club, the authors start with a premise that history zigged instead of zagged in 1783 when the Marriage Act Amendment was introduced in England to allow same sex marriages. Why? Because it wanted to encourage childless marriages between the many lesser… Continue reading Review: A Sanctuary for Soulden (The Lords of Bucknall Club #4) by J.A. Rock and Lisa Henry
