When Princess Caroline of Drieden of the Royal House Laurent eloped with a race car driver, she forfeited her royal title and her family.

Now a widow and exiled from Drieden, Caroline is working as a journalist, writing exposes under a pen name. When, one day, she catches sight of her sister Thea's ex-fiancé, she's stunned - Christian is supposed to be dead. Here could be the scoop of the century.

But Caroline's plans to uncover Christian's deception are foiled by the arrival of Hugh Konnor - her former bodyguard and Caroline's first - unrequited - love. When Hugh stubbornly refuses to leave her side, Caroline can't deny they make a good team.

As they unravel a web of deception that could bring down the House of Laurent, Caroline must decide how far she's willing to go to protect a family she feels deserted her - and whether the man who swore to guard her body can safely hold her heart.

ARC Review: Dirty Letters by Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland


Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward top my list of favorite authors ever. Whatever they write, both as individuals and together, I read. I have to say that I was super excited about reading this one though, as I am a sucker for any story involving letters/pen pals. I knew I would enjoy this book because of the authors, but it was also a really good story that I think readers are going to enjoy just as much as I did. 

Griffin and Luca were great for one another. I loved their connection, both in the past and present. The fact that they were so close from a young age really just solidified their bond and relationship. I felt for both of them and what they had each been through, both of them having experienced such difficult things alone. It broke my heart, yet I was so glad that they were able to reconnect. They belonged together, but their journey wasn’t an easy one. While I felt for Luca, I will admit I had a tough time relating to her. There were times that I just felt like I couldn’t really understand her or what made her the way she was even with all she had been through. Honestly though, that was just a personal thing as I have never been through anything close to what she had been through and have never had to face any kind of anxiety like she suffered from. I absolutely adored Griffin though, and I was so happy that Luca had him. 

Overall, this was a great book. I would have liked to have been able to connect more with Luca, but that didn’t stop my enjoyment of this book or Griffin. He was amazing, and I couldn’t get enough. I read this book in pretty much one sitting because I had to know what would happen next and how things would turn out. I definitely recommend this one and can’t wait to see what Penelope and Vi have in store for readers next.

ARC Review: The Kingmaker by Kennedy Ryan


I absolutely love Kennedy Ryan! Her writing style is so easy to get lost in and never fails to captivate me from the very first word. I would read anything from her at this point, and I don’t even read her blurbs anymore, knowing that whatever it is I am going to read it. The Kingmaker was no exception, I went into this one blind and I loved every bit of it! I don’t know how she does it, but with each book her writing just seems to get better! Kennedy Ryan is at the top of my favorite authors list, and this book just reaffirmed that for me. 

Lennix and Maxim were everything! They were absolutely what I have come to expect from Kennedy Ryan when it comes to her characters. Unique and captivating, I loved them as individuals. But as much as I loved them separately, I adored them together. They were that once in a lifetime type of connection and love and I couldn’t get enough. 

I couldn’t put this book down and I can’t wait for more! I found myself wanting to read faster for more of Lennix and Maxim’s story, yet I also wanted to savor every word as well. I think readers are going to love this one! While this isn’t the end for these characters, I urge you to read this one! It is so worth it, and I have every faith that Kennedy Ryan will do the characters and story justice as only she can with the next installment in their journey. This is a must read!!

ARC Review: Between Now and Forever by Dylan Allen


Dylan Allen is a great writer and I couldn’t wait for the start of her new series! Between Now and Forever was everything I had been hoping for and more. This one didn’t disappoint at all, I was captivated from start to finish and I need more!! 

Beth and Carter were complex and well written, as is always the case with characters from Dylan Allen. They are multi-faceted and you feel like you are living their story right along with them. I felt for them and couldn’t get enough of the chemistry between them. They are everything and I honestly can’t wait for the next installment in this series! 

This book was a great introduction to the characters and I am really looking forward to getting to know them more and watching as they grow and things change in the next few books. Dylan Allen is such a talented storyteller and if you haven’t read anything by her before, you are definitely missing out. This book will hook you with the first word and keep you invested in Beth and Carter all the way through. While I don’t always love having to wait for more in a story, I can promise you that it is worth it to take a chance on this book now rather than waiting!

ARC Review: Park Avenue Player by Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland

 

I couldn’t wait to get my hands on Park Avenue Player by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward. These are two of my favorite authors on their own, but together they are magic! I have never been disappointed by them, and I would read absolutely anything they write. Park Avenue Player was everything! I couldn’t put it down, and I honestly can’t wait to read it again! 

I loved the way that the characters met here. This was such a fun read from the beginning, and although they didn’t get off to the best start, Hollis and Elodie’s chemistry was off the charts. They had everything going for them, and I especially loved Hailey, Hollis’s niece. She was great and really completed this story. Elodie and Hollis were real and genuine, and I felt everything that they were going through as if it was happening to me right along with them. My heart broke for them at times, but I couldn’t get enough. 

Overall, another fantastic read from these two! I absolutely love their books, and Park Avenue Player was no different. They were characters that I won’t forget any time soon, and I think readers will love them as much as I did. This story is a must read, especially for fans of Vi and Penelope’s books.

HE WANTS TO LOSE CONTROL.

Between his parents’ messed up marriage and his narcissistic younger brother, Lincoln Moorehead has spent the majority of his life avoiding his family. After the death of his father, Lincoln finds himself in the middle of the drama. To top it all off, he’s been named CEO of Moorehead Media, much to his brother’s chagrin. But Lincoln’s bad attitude softens when he meets the no-nonsense, gorgeous woman who has been given the task of transforming him from the gruff, wilderness guy to a suave businessman

Wren Sterling has been working double time to keep the indiscretions at Moorehead Media at bay, so when she’s presented with a new contract, with new responsibilities and additional incentives, she agrees. Working with the reclusive oldest son of a ridiculously entitled family is worth the hassle if it means she’s that much closer to pursuing her own dreams.

But when a shocking new Moorehead scandal comes to light, she’s forced to choose between her own family and the broody, cynical CEO.
