Worth It by Linda Kage (Read my Review)

If you’re a fan of heart-meltingly sweet bad boys, tortured heroes, forbidden romances, and intense second chance love stories, then you HAVE to try this!!! I read the whole book from start to finish in one non-stop sitting because I honestly just COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN!!! It’s well-written, full of feeeeeeels, and kept my heart racing!!

The Paper Swan by Leylah Attar (Read my Review)

I LOVE LOVE LOOOOOVED THIS BOOK!!! Fierce, powerful, and absolutely breathtaking, this beautifully-written book will sweep you away in an epic love story that spans years and lasts a lifetime. The Paper Swan is a must-read for any romance readers who are searching for a completely unique story that’ll captivate you from start to finish. While the twists and turns are intense, gritty, and sometimes even dark, this was actually one of the sweetest and most beautiful love stories I’ve ever read. I loved every word and HIGHLY recommend it! 5 STARS!!

 

Hawthorne & Heathcliff by R.K. Ryals (Read my Review)

What a BEAUTIFUL story!! I was wiping happy tears at the end! The UNIQUE feel originally grabbed my attention and the gorgeous writing hooked me. It’s deeply introspective, almost poetic, but a very REAL, HEART-FELT story about an awkward girl with a past full of heartache and a good-looking boy she meets in high school who saw past her pain and, no matter what happened, he never gave up on her. This is their journey over 8 years of self discovery, first love, and second chances. I have almost 50 highlighted quotes in my book. It’s YA/NA and totally non-formulaic. If you’re in the mood for something different, definitely try this!

 

Vanguard by CJ Markusfeld (Read my Review)

OMG!!!! I absolutely loooooooooooooved this gorgeous book!!!!!! From the moment I read the prologue, I was hooked and could NOT put it down even for a single minute!! I cried, laughed, swooned, was totally overwhelmed with emotion, and even had to take little “breathers” before turning the page because it could get literally that intense!!! It had ALL THE FEELS. This story was 100% unique and unlike any other I’ve ever read. It’s a modern-day wartime love story with fantastic writing, a gripping and emotional tale, and an epic romance that kept my heart racing from start to finish. This was smart, intelligent romance!! Book HEAVEN!

 

Maybe In Another Life by Taylor Jenkins Reid (Read my Review)

SQUEEEEEE!!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVED this so freaking much!!! My gosh, that last 10% was seriously loaded with feels!! This was honestly one of the BEST BOOKS I’ve read this year. The story was unlike any other I’ve read, the writing was AMAZING, and it kept me glued to the page. It was totally unconventional and gave such a UNIQUE perspective on finding your soul mate and one true love. I cried, I laughed, my heart felt like it was bursting with emotions. I LOVED IT!!! 5++ STARS!!! — “I still love you,” he says. “I’ve always loved you. I might never stop.”

 

Rush by Emma Scott (Read my Review)

This was a really touching story! The first few chapters were a little slow but once they officially met, I was hooked. If you loved the “feeling” of Me Before You (minus the ugly-crying), then definitely try this! — The hero used to be a pro extreme sports athlete who was blinded and severely injured in a cliff diving accident. With his life and dreams shattered, he was left bitter and angry and shut himself away the world until the heroine arrived to work for him as a live-in assistant. She was a prodigy musician who’d suffering her own loss as well but they began to help each other heal as they fell unexpectedly in love…

 

The Strongest Steel by Scarlett Cole (Read my Review)

TATTOOED HERO FANS!!! I recently finished this great new book!! The sexy, tattooed hero had me swooooooooning!!! The heroine had survived an attack that left her back covered in scars and the hero was a talented tattoo artist whose specialty was inking over scars. When she shows up at his studio, he cant turn her down, and designs the perfect tattoo while fighting his intense feelings for her that grow with each tattooing session… This story was swoony, heart-meltingly romantic, a little suspenseful (her ex was a real piece of work), a lot sexy… with a hot, protective Alpha male hero!! (It’s a standalone)

 

Ride Steady by Kristen Ashley (My Review)

Bad boy biker alert!! I LOVED THIS BOOK!!! 5 STARS!! (Chaos series)

“Once upon a time, she believed in happy endings. Money, marriage, motherhood: everything came easy… Now a struggling, single mom and stranded by a flat tire pondering her mistakes, when a vaguely familiar knight rides to her rescue on a ton of horsepower… In high school, he was a bad boy loner who put her on a pedestal… Today, he’s a hard-bodied biker, and it’s clear she’s falling fast.”

 

The Man I Love by Suanne Laqueur (Read my Review)

WOW WOW WOW!!! I recently read this and LOVED it!! The WRITING was truly exquisite! It was a very slow-building, detailed story, but one where EVERY detail matters. Everything was connected and had DEPTH. It was vivid and powerful and completely UNIQUE. It told a love story that spanned 10-15 years, but didn’t follow ANY rules. Normally that would be scary to me but the way that everything was portrayed made me really *get* where these characters came from. And I was honestly blown away by how much I FELT and how BEAUTIFULLY it was written. It’s like I lived the story with them. It just felt REAL. Highly recommended!

 

Never Let You Go by Katy Regnery (Read my Review)

HOLY HELL!!! I read reading this in one non-stop sitting because I could NOT put it down. I mean seriously… THE ANGST!!!!! Gah. *clutches heart* It’ll be a while before my heart rate to go back to normal, but WOW, it was unputdownable!!! It felt like I barely blinked or stopped to breathe because I was flipping the pages so fast…… It was sweet and romantic, heart-breaking and painful, angsty as all freaking hell, and really just a gorgeous story of UNDYING LOVE!!! The story was unique and it’s a complete standalone so if you’re looking for a new read, try this!

 

King by T.M. Frazier (Read my Review)

Holy wow, I totally LOVED this book!! Dark and gritty, sweet and sexy, raw and shocking, and utterly addictive, with an unapologetic, badass Alpha male hero and unexpected twists that I never saw coming!! I highly recommend it!!
Homeless. Hungry. Desperate. Doe has no memories of who she is or where she comes from…A notorious career criminal just released from prison, King is someone you don’t want to cross. When they come crashing together, they will have to learn that sometimes in order to hold on, you have to first let go.

 

A Pound of Flesh by Sophie Jackson (Read my Review)

SQUEEEEEEE!!!!! I absolutely LOOOOOOOVED this book!!! If you love SEXY BAD BOY heroes and unique love stories, then you have to try this!!!! The thrill of their forbidden romance kept my heart RACING the whole way through. I swooned over their love for each other, and really appreciated the way there was no ‘stupid’ drama. And now I just can’t stop smiling because the story was just so freaking GOOD!!!! I adored it!!! It’s about a “strong-minded prison tutor who discovers that her sexy bad-boy student is far more than he appears to be…”

November 9 by Colleen Hoover

WOWWWWWWWW!!!! I recently read an advance copy of this STUNNING book. It blew me away!!! I read it in one sitting with my heart racing the whole time!!

Book Review — Throttled by Elizabeth Lee

Book Review — Throttled by Elizabeth Lee

“You remembered.” She smiled back.
“I remember everything about you.” I promised.

SQUEEE!!!! I love love LOVED this book!! 

It’s a gorgeous, heart-warming second chance romance and I’m fully serious when I say I loved everything about it. The hero is a famous Motocross racer who returns to his hometown to realize that the girl he left behind when he went to follow his dreams still holds his heart and this time, he’s willing to do everything and anything in his power to win back her trust and prove that he still loves her more than anything.

This was truly the perfect second chance romance story. I adored every page of it, and by the time I read the epilogue, I just could not stop smiling. I loved him, I loved her, I loved them, I loved the whole story. Everyone just…. READ THIS BOOK!!!!! 😀

He kissed my forehead. “…I want to be the man that protects you. That takes care of you. I want to be the guy that I couldn’t be seven years ago.”

So here’s the basic situation of the book… Reid and Nora fell in love when they were teens. Like real, deep, forever-and-ever love. But, he left town suddenly one day to pursue his dreams of becoming a professional racer. He completely shattered her heart and left her broken. But the important thing was that, even though it was undeniably a huge mistake, he did it out of good intentions. He knew what he had to do with his life, but he wanted her to live one too and not to be tied to his while he was building his career. Yes, that should have been her call, but it was a case of the wrong thing done for the right reasons. Seven years later when he returned to town though, the feelings he had for her that he’d never forgotten came flooding back and he was prepared to go as far as it took to get back the only girl he’d ever loved.

Ok. Now I have to address the big thing that made me fall in love with the book right off that bat and that was the fact that he did not become a manwhore after he left her. Even surrounded by all the temptations that came with being a sexy, famous, hotshot racer, his heart was left behind with her and while I’m not saying he was celibate, he didn’t sleep around or get into relationships with other girls. He’d left with the intention of starting and building his career and that’s exactly what he did.  He too was in pain after he left her but he didn’t use that as an excuse for anything. And that immediately made me respect him and put me in a much more forgiving frame of mind when it came to him winning her back.

I honestly feel like that was the make-or-break factor with this book. If he’d left her all those years ago and gone and slept his way through every girl that came his way, then I wouldn’t have been able to forgive him if he’d come back to down and tried to get her back. BUT because of the way he acted when he was away from her (even though they were broken up), the responsibility with which he treated his career, and the way it was clear that he never really let go of the girl he left behind, made it so that I was able to believe him when he returned to town and wanted to try to earn her forgiveness, trust, and love again. It’s like his behaviour proved the strength of his intentions more than any words ever could.

“Just because speed is my thing with my job doesn’t mean I live my entire life that way. I want to take my time with you… Do it right. I don’t expect you to just forgive and forget what happened back then. I know I will have to earn your trust again. And, I will.”

Another thing which many of you have asked me about is whether there’s a triangle (because it says in the blurb that she’s dating another guy from town at the time that Reid comes back) and the answer is honestly… to me, this isn’t a triangle. Or, not in the way you’d think. The other guy just wasn’t a viable love interest. Apart from being a douche, he was kind of a meaningless attempt from her to build a life after Reid had left, but it was just always clear that she wasn’t actually in love with him. Her initial hesitation to get back together with Reid wasn’t because she was torn between the two men, it was because she was (understandably) wary about getting her heart crushed again. To be honest, I actually thought she handled this whole situation really well. Given the way he’d left her seven years before, the recovery wasn’t going to be overnight, and even though she’d never stopped loving him, I really liked that she didn’t just jump back into his arms. He had to prove himself to her. And luckily, he had every intention of fighting for her.

“I’m over it.”

“No, you’re not.” I trapped her hand underneath mine and stood to face her. “You feel my heart beating right now,” I said, moving her hand directly over my heart. “You feel how fast it’s racing. I bet yours is beating just as fast… After all these years, we still have an effect on each other… I still make your heart race.”

Speaking of which, I LOVED how relentless and determined Reid was to fix things. He may have made mistakes in the past, but he fully owned up to them, took responsibility, and wasn’t going to give up. He was willing to go as far as it took to show her that he was sorry and that she was the only girl for him.

love reading about functional couples. Seriously. Yes, I get that people make mistakes, and I get that things don’t run smoothly — that’s life — but I love when you can just tell that the intentions are good and their hearts are in the right place and that they’re just trying their best to make things work. I get positively giddy when I find books like this — where there’s no stupid drama, and it’s just two people trying to find their way back together… and where you just KNOW that they’re meant for each other.

“I absolutely, one-hundred percent, still have feelings for you. And, they are just as strong as the day I left.” I pulled her hands up to my best and took a step toward her. “I never stopped loving you. I can promise you that… You know I’m going to fight for you?”

“Yeah, I know.” The slightest of smiles tugged at her lips even though tears still glistened in her eyes.

And THE FEEEEEEEELS!!!!! I teared up a few times! Especially that heart-wrenching scene when she told him the secret she’d held back all these years. *sniff* But this story was not only full of feels, but it was also sexy, steamy, and intensely romantic. Yup, it’s hot too! I was definitely fanning my way through some of those steamier scenes! Ahhhh it just had everything!!! And it had the perfect epilogue with just the right amount of gorgeous, heart-warming emotions to beautifully wrap up and conclude this couple’s story.

I absolutely LOVED this book and highly recommend it for everyone!!!

PS: Did I mention he has tattoos? 😛

Rating: 4.5+ stars!! Standalone Adult romance.

This is the first standalone in a series of standalones. Each book will focus on a different couple. There is a fully resolved ending in this book (with epilogue).

Book Review — Worth It by Linda Kage

Book Review — Worth It by Linda Kage

“Do you ever think about kissing me?”

SQUEE!!! Ohhh, I loved this book!!

If you’re a fan of heart-meltingly sweet bad boys, tortured heroes, forbidden romances, and intense second chance love stories, then you have to read this book!! I read it from start to finish in one non-stop sitting because I honestly just could not put it down!!! It was well-written, loaded with feels, and kept my heart racing!! You can read this as a standalone and it’s a top recommendation!!

This was one of those books that I wanted to read as soon as I saw the blurb…

I fell in love once… I lived for each time I could see her, and nothing else mattered, not that our families were enemies, our time together was forbidden, or we had to meet in secret. Our love could conquer all. Until it didn’t.

So I was ripped away from the love of my life and shoved into hell, forced to continue without her. It shattered me, broke the best parts of me, left me damaged. Or so I thought.

Years later, I swear history’s trying to repeat itself because she’s back in my life, and I’m just as drawn to her as I was before. But I’m older and wiser now, and I know she should stay away from a worthless piece of ex-con like me.

So, I will not let her in. I absolutely refuse to hurt her. I will keep her away. Then again, sometimes risking your greatest fear to get to a smile makes everything worth it, and besides, I’m not sure I can resist her, anyway.

This is the story of how Felicity Bainbridge changed my life forever, starting one summer day long ago after I was forced to change a dirty diaper…

I don’t know about you, but that ^^^ sold me on the book!

The story grabbed me from the first page and I honestly didn’t even move from my spot on the couch until I was done. It had so much heart! Just that perfectly delicious blend of angst, feels, swoon and sexy… where you love seeing a couple together and want to see them get through whatever comes their way.

The story is told in alternating POVs between Knox and Felicity, and it also alternates between past and present. I actually love this type of storytelling (very often seen in second chance romances) because it’s like you get to experience the way all the pieces of the story slowly come together as you read. I loved finding out more about when they’d first met, I swooned over them falling in love, I was heart-broken at their separation, and I eagerly and desperately waited for them to find each other again.

Where had he gone?

And then I felt it.

A stare. It started out tingling the back of my neck until it rocked through my entire nervous system. I could do nothing but feel him watching me… I knew he was there though, hiding from me, probably pressing his back to the wall and holding his breath, hoping I didn’t find him. Except I had no idea why he’d hide from me… why he hadn’t told me who he was…

I’m a total sucker for this kind of story. Guy from the wrong side of the tracks, feuding families, a forbidden romance they had to hide, a second chance after they’d been forced apart… gah, I loved it!

I also want to say that I really appreciated how awesome the supporting characters were in this story. It’s really nice to see friends in books genuinely offer helpful and solid advice and support and not contribute to the drama. This story was absolutely a case of “them against the world”, not “them against each other”, all they both ever wanted was just to be together, so it was the kind I most love to read!

“We’ve never really been apart. From the moment you bumped into me in those woods, we’ve belonged to each other… and we’ll always love each other. You know why?” I leaned in to whisper… “Because we don’t know how to stop.”

And the FEEEELS!!!!! Omg, they’d been torn apart and then kept apart, and their lives had changed so much as a result of the experiences they’d gone through separately but the one thing that deep down hadn’t changed was that they were still madly in love with each other (even though it took some convincing by Felicity to show Knox that he was good for her). I totally felt their love and was rooting for them every step of the way, but my heart absolutely broke when the truth about what had happened to him was revealed. We know from the start that he’d been sent to prison, but the truth about everything on his side of the story was really gut-wrenching. I won’t say anything because I don’t want to spoil it but I promise your heart will hurt when you find out. *sniff* I seriously wanted to hug him!! And I was so happy that he’d made it through and back to her, and even happier that she wasn’t going to give up on him.

“I’m no good for you,” he insisted.

I shook my head. “You’re the best thing that ever happened to me.”

All in all, I just LOVED this book! It had everything I most love to read about wrapped up in one awesome story! Technically, this is a standalone within a series of interconnected standalones, but you do NOT have to read the series in order and you do not have to read the previous books in order to understand this one. The author has very cleverly structured it so that you can read this completely alone if you want. I personally read the first standalone back when it was first released, but I haven’t read any of the other books since then, and I dived right into this and was 100% fine. If you want to read the whole series, I’ve listed them all below, but I’ll just say again, that you can read this book completely alone. It’s up to you.

I really do highly recommend reading this one though. I literally loved everything about it — the writing, the story, the characters, the ending. It was sweet, sexy, and heart breaking but also beautiful. It kept my heart racing and kept me flipping those pages like crazy. It’s absolutely a top favorite recommendation!

Rating: 4.5 stars. Can be read as a standalone.
