Losing Me, Finding You by Natalie Ward – New top recommendation!!
I read this book in one sitting recently and absolutely LOVED it!! Holy hell!!! The intensity of this love story was off the charts!!!! My heart was pounding from start to finish and this book was totally unique.

Each time she has to figure out where she is, who she is, and has to find her way back to HIM. The man she loves and the man who loves her unconditionally. This is their story. Read my review.

*** RECENT RECOMMENDATIONS & REVIEWS ***
It’s LIVE!!!!! It’s finally here!! I adored this book!!! Absolute, stunning perfection in every way. It’s an intensely emotional, beautiful, sexy, and heart-wrenching story of love and healing. I almost guarantee that you’ll cry (seriously, my heart broke for Miles!!!) but I promise you it’s worth every tear because the way that it all comes together is just gorgeous!!! Truly a must-read!! 6 STARS!!
“If I were capable of loving someone… it would be you.”
I absolutely LOVED this book!!! It was SO much more than I expected. Deeply emotional, sexy, funny, romantic…. and it had that special heart-pounding intensity to it. Definitely a new top fav!!! — It’s a forbidden romance about a Marine who’s home on leave and drawn to the one girl he can’t have… his best friend’s sister. But he’s only home for 4 weeks before he’s sent out again for another 9 months so every second they have together is stolen and precious…
Within These Walls by J.L. Berg — Recent review!!
I just posted my new review for this book! It was a really sweet love story ➜ The heroine is a survivor. She was born with a damaged heart and has spent most of her life in the hospital. The (tattooed) hero is broken inside, grieving the death of a woman he’d loved. But when he sees her, something changes and he makes it his mission to try and bring happiness into her life…
Calmly, Carefully, Completely by Tammy Falkner – Recent review!!
SQUEEE!!! I just finished this and LOVED it!!! So many feels, so much swoon!! You can read it as a standalone (I did) even though it’s part of the Reed Brothers series. This story is about Pete Reed. He’s covered in tattoos and fresh out of jail but he’s a good man with a good heart, one of the Reed Brothers… And that’s when he meets HER. Again. Two and a half years ago he saved her and she’s been wanting to thank him ever since… Read my review.
Among The Echoes by Aly Martinez – Recent release & recommendation!!
Ok, I’m sneaking this one in too because it was recently released and I really loved it too! The story is a complete standalone but there’s a little twist that connects it with the two books posted above (if you’ve already read those books, you’ll totally *squee* when you read the twist ) This book was a sexy, suspenseful romance about a woman in witness protection who catches the eye of a celebrity boxer!! If you like strong, ALPHA, protective heroes, you’re going to LOVE Slate Andrews!! That man made me SWOOOOON!!! Read my review.
