The Perfect First (Fulton U, #1)The Perfect First by Maya Hughes

4 stars

The Perfect First is a new adult college sports romance. Persephone (Seph) Alexander is a maths genius, but she has spent her life being home-schooled and has no friends and is socially inept. She has escaped from her father’s strict rules while at Fulton University, and during this time she plans to complete a dream list of ‘firsts’.

Reece Michaels is a football star, full of self-confidence, but his attitude won’t impress the talent scouts, so his coach books him lessons which will improve his off-field image. In a classic mistaken identity moment, Reece meets Seph just as she is interviewing for her first sexual partner. Reece cannot believe the danger that Seph is placing herself in, so he promises to be her friend and help her with her other list items, but not the sex.

The author takes a studious introvert…

Rosie’s #BookReview of #RomanticComedy BOOK REVIEW by Hayleigh Sol

Book Review: A sweet and steamy modern romance of unexpected twistsBook Review: A sweet and steamy modern romance of unexpected twists by Hayleigh Sol

3.5 stars

Book Review is a romantic comedy. Sophie is enjoying her single life after a succession of failed relationships; she also enjoys reading romance and is a regular visitor to her local library.  Inside the copy of her latest read is a scribbled handwritten love scene which is so badly written that Sophie adds her own re-write and ends up helping Jackson, who she discovers is the author, write his sizzling sex scenes.

With their only communication taking place via, phone, text or e-mail, the duo have yet to meet; they get on so well but are hesitant about taking their friendship further, and when they do agree to meet up, something always prevents it from happening.

I liked this quick easy read.  I’m not usually a fan of the use of text and email…

The best romance is one which grows out of friendship, but will Becky Watson ever find common ground with morose, grumpy artist, Charlie Handren?  Becky is returning to her job as a life coach and fixer of crises, after her maternity leave, and as a single mother she needs this major contract to augment her other job as the invisible fairy godmother at weddings, calming family tensions.  Living in the Comptons, a wealthy, upmarket area in the south of England with a strong artistic tradition, it would be a triumph if she could help Charlie to regain his ability to paint after 6 years lamenting his failed marriage. Arranging an exhibition to relaunch his career does not phase Becky, but helping him to woo Rachel Stone, the woman he…

Mimi Matthews is, in my opinion, quite the best author of historical romance writing today.  The stories in the Parish Orphans of Devon, complement each other in the way that the friendship of the four young men also does.  Each has noble qualities and failings, with which their new partners will support them.  At first Neville Cross might seem a less dynamic hero than his former friends but his strong physique and gentle relationship with horses make him very attractive.  In contrast our heroine, Clara, seems confident and highly intelligent. But each have problems to deal with.  After a traumatic accident, Neville struggles with communication while Clara must earn a living to support her brother at university.

This novel unites all the Parish Orphans of the previous books at…

Rosie’s #BookReview Of #Contemporary Ranch-Themed #Romance MY GIRL by Jacquie Biggar

My Girl (Gambling Hearts #3)My Girl by Jacquie Biggar

3.5 stars

My Girl is book three of The Gambling Hearts series of Texas ranch-themed romances. Aaron Shaughnessy once had his heart broken by the girl he loved. Now she has come back to his family’s dude ranch, but she’s brought her fiancé with her.

Trish Sylvester was surprised when her family arranged a week’s holiday on the ranch, especially after her break-up with Aaron. Seeing him again stirs up all her hidden emotions and makes her question why she left him.

This is a pleasant easy read clean romance. A couple of times I would have enjoyed time spent building a few more layers around the main characters so that I could really empathise with them, but that is just my personal preference in this genre. I liked the author’s notes at the end of the book where she hoped that the setting would…
