Her Boss

Her Boss: A Sweet Brothers Romance (The Braxton Brothers Book 1) by [Meyer, Anne-Marie]

This is a fun romance set in the south. Poor Beth. She gets constantly having her world turned upside down. And Josh has to deal with his ex-wife issues.

There's lots of push and pull between Beth and Josh. I like Josh's mom. She's a hoot.

Well written, fleshed out characters, and a family I'm looking forward to reading more about make this story a winner.


The boss is off limits.

Joshua is back in Honey Grove. As a divorced, single dad, he’s decided that love is the last thing he needs. 

Beth is back in Honey Grove after losing her job and getting dumped. 

When Josh’s mother, the town’s busy body, arranges for Beth to be his nanny, Josh decides to go along with the plan. 

Even though Beth is no longer the lanky girl next door, Josh isn’t looking for a relationship anyway. He can keep her at a distance. Right?

Everything seems to be working out until their relationship deepens and their arrangement isn’t enough anymore. 

Too bad her feelings for Josh isn’t Beth’s only secret.

Perfect Set

Perfect Set by [Jacobson, Melanie]

The beginning of this book makes me chuckle. The love interests get off to a bad start and it doesn't get better anytime soon, which makes for good humor. Their constant misunderstandings are imaginative and believable.

It's a sports romance. The characters are likable, well fleshed out, and easy to become emotionally invested in.
Clean romance, solid writing, and set in sunny California. A great escape anytime of year.


Bree Mercer is an ambitious sports reporter who has risen through the ranks to land her dream job. Basking in the sun, sea, and seriously cute guys in her new singles ward, things couldn’t be better. That is, until she’s assigned to write a feature on the one person she can’t stand—professional beach volleyball player Kade Townsend. A typical cocky athlete, Kade’s previous attempt to woo her was foiled by Bree’s hard-and-fast rule: don’t date athletes. Ever.
Kade loathes the media, and for good reason: when his hard-partying ways were exposed by a reporter who claimed to be his friend, the scandal rocked his entire family. Now reformed, Kade has put his life back together, and he has no interest in talking to reporters—least of all, Bree Mercer. But when the pair is thrown together despite their best efforts, their chemistry is undeniable. They can’t seem to put the brakes on their feelings—until their connection threatens Bree’s reputation and Kade’s hard-won redemption. Now they must decide if there is a place for love in their plans for the future.

Escaping Neverland

I've read a few of Ms. Lemon's books and they are always a joy to read. Escaping Neverland is no exception.

This is Peter Pan as it's never been told. In this verson, Peter is growing up and must either leave Neverland for good or turn pirate. He seeks a replacement and believes he finds one in Jane. Except there's a romantic thread. You can guess who's involved, and it's not Captain Hook!

Lots of emotion, clear writing, beautiful world building, and pure imagination fuel this twisted retelling of the boy who wouldn't grow up.

This story will appeal to all, and keep you guessing until it's satisfying end.

I love the cover!


Peter Pan is growing up. Nearing adulthood, he faces a choice: join the pirates of Neverland or face their wrath--or leave Neverland for good. Reluctant to abandon the Lost Boys, Peter searches for someone who can care for them and withstand the dangers of Neverland. The tough and witty Jane seems like the perfect replacement until he realizes that leaving her is almost as unbearable as becoming a pirate.

Wow. These teens get themselves into a hot mess. Mistake after mistake to try and riddle out amongst their hormones. It makes you happy to be a grown up and grateful to have a wonderful escape to read by Ms. Corry.

There's lots of emotional depth, solid writing, and twists to keep you guessing to the end.


They broke the rules. He broke their heart. Does their love deserve a second chance?

Sixteen-year-old Juliette Cardini has been keeping a secret for months. Before she went to her semester abroad in Paris, she dated her best friend's older brother, Easton Stevens. What had started as a whirlwind romance filled with forbidden meetings, came to a crashing halt when they crossed a line together that neither of them could return from.

Now she's back in Ridgewater and has to face everyone she left behind. But there's one more secret she's keeping. She's pregnant. And Easton is the father.

But she has a plan: go to her grandma's house for the next few months. Keep the baby a secret. No one will ever have to know. But when Juliette sees signs that Easton might want a second chance, she wonders if keeping everything to herself is the best choice.

Can a relationship built on such a rocky foundation have a chance at a happy ending? And what will Easton do if Juliette's secret comes out?
