NEW REVIEW & TOP FAVORITE: Letters To Molly by Devney Perry (Read my Review)
OMG OMG OMG SQUEEEEEEE!!! HOLY WOW!!! I have the happiest of happy tears streaming down my face because I just finished reading this book and it was definitely the most AMAZING, BEAUTIFUL, ROMANTIC book I’ve read all year!!! It’s a story of love, loss, marriage, family, and second chances. It felt so believable, so real, so purely romantic. It was utterly ADDICTIVE in every way. I cancelled dinner plans so I could finish reading this without stopping. I just kept flipping those pages and getting more lost in this story. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE LOVE LOVED IT!!! Without any doubt, this was a 5 STAR FAVORITE!! Be sure to pre-order a copy! This is the second standalone in a series of interconnected standalones — each book is about a different couple but the characters are related and/or close friends. You could easily read it alone, or you could read the first one The Birthday List (which I also loved) first and then grab a copy of Letters to Molly because it just went live!!
RARE SALE ALERTS:
- Creed by Kristen Ashley and the the entire 5-book Unfinished Heroes Series of interconnected standalones is currently ON SALE for a limited time!! Fair warning, the actual first one in the series is a little hard for some people to read (the hero is very controversial and I personally had a lot of issues with him), but the second book Creed (my review) can be read alone and it’s also one of the BEST BOOKS EVER!!! It’s one of my rare 6-star ratings so I can’t recommend it highly enough! So you might choose to read them in order but just in case you’re not liking the first one, just skip it and read the second because that one is amazing and so are the rest! And at the very least be sure to grab your copy of Creed and don’t miss the whole series on sale too!

Yes, she happens to be my ex-fling. But that was seven years ago, and it was barely a week-long thing. Except, she’s still the one I can’t stop thinking of — brilliant, sexy, captivating… Maybe a week of taking her to new heights will get her out of my head.
