The Day He Came Back – Penelope Ward



A Standalone Contemporary

New York Times, USA Today, and #1 Wall Street Journal



It was the summer of my life.

I’d met the guy of my

Unfortunately, he was the son of my uppity
mdash;and very much off


But Gavin was a rebel. He knew his mother
would disown him if she found out about us; in his eyes, we just had to be

He never treated me as his mother
did—like hired help.

Instead, Gavin put me on a pedestal and
loved me harder than I’d ever been loved in my life.


What a summer it was.

Until it all ended—badly.


I was never supposed to see Gavin

That didn’t stop me from thinking
about him every day for ten years.

I knew little about
his life now, just that he
was an entrepreneur living an ocean away.


When a twist of fate had me working again in
the very place our love affair star
ted a decade earlier, I knew it was only a matter of
time before I might see him again.

But I wasn’t prepared.

What if he hated me?

REVIEW – Oh my gosh, Penelope Ward has wrote an epic romance story spanning years. A romance that never dies but lingers in the background over the years but never stops burning. There is so much romance and angst that comes from this book and it was absolute perfection. This is why i will always pick up a Penelope Ward book. She cocoons you in the story and you do not want to resume daily life, this story and these characters will stay with you a long time after you finish the book. Romantic, sexy and full of longing – perfect summer romance read

Summer Heat – Rachel Van Dyken

Summer Heat Book Cover Summer Heat
Cruel Summer #1
Rachel Van Dyken

Spoiled Princess is what he used to call me.
We were an inferno of hate and passion wound up with a dash of chaos.

For four years I watched him mow my lawn.
For four years I watched my friends make fun of him.
For four years I hated myself for wanting him, but even more for the way I treated him.

And then I had him.
For one night, we put all labels away and I spent the best night of my life in his arms.
Then the next day, with my secret night under lock and key, I looked the other way while my friends shamed him.

But now the jokes on me, because the scrawny lawn boy who I secretly loved from afar is now the director of Hollywoods most exclusive summer camp.

And I’m on his staff.
Now it’s his turn to punish me.
His turn to make me pay.
His turn to take his revenge after years of humiliation.

He’s no longer a boy you can ridicule.
But a college graduate who can have any woman he wants.
I want him to look at me the way he did that one night we had together, but right now
the look in his eyes tells me he’s going to enjoy having me under him for two straight months.
I don’t know where his hatred ends, his passion begins.
All I know is he wants revenge.
And I’m his lucky target.

REVIEW – Loved it so much!! A hot summer read about a second chance at romance if the desire for revenge is not too strong. This book takes sexy and angst to a new level in Rachel’s writing for me. I could not put this book down. I am a sucker for a second chance romance but this one gives added heat and desire as the gulf between the characters is so great to overcome. I cannot wait for book 2 as this book does end on a cliff-hanger, and also i love the cover. Superb summer read while lounging in sun and relaxing it will certainly raise your temperature 🙂

Her Defiant Heart – Monica Murphy

Damaged Hearts #1

Life can feel like a cruel joke. I grew up poor and motherless, with a father who never got over his wife’s abandonment. But now he’s gone too, and I’m dead set on finding the woman who so carelessly tossed me aside when I was a baby.

I want revenge. And I’m going to get back at my mother any way that I can.

I change my name. Start my new life in college, and just happen to cross paths with the gorgeous, ultra-rich Rhett Montgomery. He’s immediately interested in me, not that I’m surprised.

You see, I planned it that way. I meant for him to find me. He’s the one connection to my mother, and I’m using him, so I can destroy her. But I didn’t plan on Rhett being so charming. Sweet. Sexy.

And I definitely didn’t plan on falling for him either…

REVIEW – So lets get this straight this book is a cliff-hanger but the next book is available now. This is a story of revenge and desire to see someone be brought down from their life when romance has an unexpected way of getting involved. I enjoyed reading this book and it was a roller-coaster ride of emotions as the main female lead goes through a lot of them, and i will certainly be reading book 2. This book has a serious revenge theme going on, i have read books about revenge before but this one seems so raw and desperate for the lead and i can understand that from what they have been through. Looking forward to reading book 2 when i have some time

Coming Up Roses Bennet Brothers #1 Staci Hart

Everyone hates parts of their job. Maybe it’s the paperwork. Maybe it’s the day-to-day grind. Maybe it’s that client who never knows what they want, or the guy who always cooks fish in the microwave. But not me. I love every corner of the Longbourne Flower Shop, every flower, every petal, every stem. I love the greenhouse, and I love Mrs. Bennet, my boss. I love creating, and I love being a florist. I don’t hate anything at all. Except for Luke Bennet. The Bennet brothers have come home to help their mom save the flower shop, and Luke is at the helm. His smile tells a tale of lust, loose and easy. He moves with the grace of a predator, feral and wild. A thing unbridled, without rules or constraint.  When he comes home to save Longbourne, I almost can’t be mad at him.  Almost. He doesn’t remember that night I’ll never forget. That kiss, touched with whiskey and fire. It branded me like a red-hot iron. But it meant nothing to him. Everyone hates part of their job, and I hate Luke Bennet. Because if I don’t, I’ll fall in love with him. REVIEW – I enjoyed this first book in a new series by Staci Hart. It was a very funny and sparky story of rivals who find love. When i say rivals i don’t mean bitter rivals i mean clashing of characters and ideas. Very good flow of the story and i got to like the characters, also a serious dose of romance thrown in which i love. I cannot wait to read more from this series and get to know some of the other characters we met in this story – i hope it happens. Go read it a fun and easy weekend read which will make you smile

Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life — a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can’t forget that. She’s also been a mom, with three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She’s been a wife, though she’s certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She’s also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she’s been drinking whiskey. When she’s not writing, she’s reading, sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.

Until December – Aurora Rose Reynolds

Until December

Until Her #5

Aurora Rose Reynolds

30th July 2019




Gareth Black is drawn to December Mayson the moment he spots her across
the room at her cousin’s wedding. When he approaches the beautiful woman, she
captivates him with her shyness and wit, making him crave her.
With a pull so strong it’s impossible to ignore, December knows there’s
something between her and Gareth. She just hopes they’re capable of jumping the
hurdles ahead of them.
Two boys, an ex, a surprise that will change everything, and a
disgruntled co-worker, guarantee these two will have their work cut out for
them if they are going to find their happily ever after.
REVIEW – I have been waiting for this book for what seems like forever, but oh my it was worth the wait. Aurora knows how to write sexy romances with some angst thrown in and some alpha males to get you swooning hard Now don’t get me wrong sometimes alpha males can be so annoying, but with this book it is just the perfect blend of alpha and emotions. These books feature characters who we have seen before and some new ones, but it can be read as a standalone. For me i just flew through this book as it was exactly what i needed to read and it flowed really well. Great writing and great series
