Sandra has been reading The Summer Of Taking Chances by Lynne Shelby

53691893. sy475

Emma is looking forward to playing Juliet in the local amateur dramatic society production when Jake Murray arrives back in South Quay for the summer, ten years after he left to go to drama school, and thoroughly unsettles her. Now a household name, thanks to his role in a successful TV
series, he’s taking the summer off, away from the media spotlight, and catching up with his old school friends.

At the beginning of The Summer of Taking Chances, Jake comes across as a bit arrogant and full of himself; not very likeable really. But we get to see him through Emma’s eyes, and it’s obvious they have history. It was Emma who first got Jake interested in acting at the school drama club. As the

Searching for Love (The Bradens & Montgomerys: Pleasant Hill - Oak Falls, #6; The Bradens #27; Love in Bloom #67)Searching for Love by Melissa Foster

4.5 stars

Searching For Love is a ‘second chance’ contemporary romance. Easily a stand-alone story, this is also part of the wider Bradens & Montgomerys: Pleasant Hill – Oak Falls series.

This is the tale of Carly and Zev, childhood sweethearts and young adventurers. They shared so many firsts and looked destined to stay together forever, but a tragedy blew them apart.

Carly is now a chocolatier, while Zev is a deep sea treasure hunter. They meet again at a family wedding and the connection they once had is rekindled. After the wedding, they spend one glorious week reawakening their hopes and dreams until each returns to their new normal lives. Will they ever be together again?

The story features a dashing modern day buccaneer, sexy hot romance and delicious chocolates, together with some wonderful secondary characters who will, no doubt, be writing their…

Rosie’s #Bookreview Of #NewAdult #SportsRomance THE PERFECT FIRST by @mhugheswrites

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…

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…

50315513. sy475

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…
