ARC Review: Love, Sincerely, Yours by Sara Ney and Meghan Quinn

I loved this book so much! Sara Ney and Meghan Quinn make a fabulous writing team, I couldn’t put Love, Sincerely, Yours down! This was everything I look for in a great book. It was sweet and sexy, funny and heartfelt. I genuinely enjoyed it from start to finish and I will definitely be reading it again in the future. Can’t wait to read more from these two! 

Peyton has been invisible to her boss/longtime crush for years. When she gets drunk with her girlfriends on her birthday, they have the brilliant idea to send him an email letting him know how she really feels. She never expects her no-nonsense boss to actually respond. When Peyton and Rome interact in person, they constantly antagonize each other. But when hidden behind their screens and Peyton’s secret email, things begin to heat up between them. 

I absolutely loved Peyton and Rome. Each of them was well written and developed, I felt like I knew each of them and they were easy to like. Their chemistry was undeniable and off the charts. I loved that it was so much more than that though. They had great banter, and this story was so witty and fun to read. Everything felt so real and natural, I never wanted it to end. 

Overall, this was a great story! It was light and refreshing, unlike anything I have read recently. This is not just another office romance, but a story that I would recommend to romance lovers who appreciate humor as well as steam and emotion. I think that readers are going to love this one just as much as I did, and I already can’t wait for more from these two authors. Love, Sincerely, Yours is a must read!

ARC Review: All My Life by Prescott Lane

I’m really torn with All My Life by Prescott Lane. On the one hand, there were several things that I liked about this book. It had plenty of cute and sweet moments that I truly enjoyed. But on the flip side, there were several things about this story that didn’t work for me. I think this is one of those books that most will really enjoy, and that maybe it just wasn’t for me personally. 

Garrett and Devlyn had been friends for as long as they both could remember, but Devlyn was always secretly in love with him as well. So when he got someone pregnant as a teenager, her heart was broken but she continued to stand by him and vowed to be there for him through everything. She was always there for not only him, but also his daughter. But will they ever see her as more than just the friend that has always been there for them? 

Ok here is where things started to not work for me...Devlyn. She was sweet and caring, kind and supportive. But that also turned her into a doormat. She gave up so much for Garrett and didn’t ask for anything. She had her heart broken over and over by him and yet he never saw that she was anything more than a friend until he randomly woke up one day? Talk about going from 0 to 60, it was just too much to take. Meanwhile, Garrett had been living his life with his daughter being his world and of course he had his steady Thursday night hookup while Devlyn had failed relationships and pined away for him all while being a mother to his child when she didn’t have one. They had chemistry and a connection, but I was so frustrated with how things went down here. It wasn’t believable and it was very frustrating at times. 

I also have to say that the cover is completely misleading. Garrett’s daughter Mia is not young, she is graduating and turning 18. I expected something different based on the cover, and the fact that she was older and all this had gone on for that many years was a huge part of why this one just didn’t fully work for me. There was some drama here that I won’t get into so I don’t spoil anything, but it was predictable and I wasn’t a fan. While there were some really great moments for Garrett and Devlyn as well as with Mia, it just wasn’t enough for me to love this one. I think a lot of readers will still really enjoy this one, and recommend you give it a shot if it sounds like one you might like.

Feature: Five Years Gone by Marie Force

The most brazen terrorist attack in history. A country bent on revenge. A love affair cut short. A heart that never truly heals.

I knew on the day of the attack that our lives were changed forever. What I didn’t know then was that I’d never see John again after he deployed. One day he was living with me, sleeping next to me, making plans with me. The next day he was gone.

That was five years ago. The world has moved on from that awful day, but I’m stuck in my own personal hell, waiting for a man who may be dead for all I know. At my sister’s wedding, I meet Eric, the brother of the groom, and my heart comes alive once again.

The world is riveted by the capture of the terrorist mastermind, brought down by U.S. Special Forces in a daring raid. Now I am trapped between hoping I’ll hear from John and fearing what’ll become of my new life with Eric if I do.

From a New York Times bestselling author, Five Years Gone, a standalone contemporary, is an epic story of love, honor, duty, unbearable choices and impossible dilemmas.

His daughter needs a mom, and the intriguing, beautiful Sasha is perfect for the role. Not to mention their chemistry is off the charts. Unfortunately, he's set his sights on the one woman in town who has no interest in falling for another man with a badge.

ARC Review: Fragments of Ash by Katy Regnery

Fragments of Ash is the 7th story in Katy Regnery’s Modern Fairytale series, and while I did enjoy it, it wasn’t my favorite of the series. This book is based on Cinderella, an I loved that the wicked stepmother and sisters and the fairy godmother were instead men here in this book. I always love that Katy re-imagines these stories that we are all familiar with and makes them her own, and that was definitely the case here. 

Ashley Ellis was the daughter of the famous model Tig, though everyone but a few people thought that she was actually her younger sister. So when her mom dies mysteriously when Ash is 18, she had no idea the plans her stepfather had for her. With the help of her godfather Gus, Ash is able to escape and goes into hiding. But with her stepfather and his sons as well as henchmen determined to hunt her down, will she be able to hide forever before he manages to get her back? 

Like I said before, I liked this one but didn’t love it like the rest of the series. I think part of that was that this one was a bit slower and tended to focus more on Ash and her journey rather than the love story also happening here. The romance almost felt as though it was a minor part of this story, and I never felt as invested in the relationship as I would have like. While I liked Ash, there were things about her that were hard for me to connect to. Same thing for Julian. I liked him after he got over himself and the way he treated Ash at first. These two had chemistry and a growing connection, but I just wanted more. 

Overall, this one was good and I did like it. I just wish that I felt more here, which is never usually a problem with this series. It was still good and well worth the read, it just didn’t pack quite the same punch as what I am used to for this series. Julian and Ash were a couple that I felt did belong together and they were good for one another, I just didn’t feel as emotionally invested in them as I normally do with the couples from this series. I still highly recommend this series to romance readers as no one does fairytale stories like Katy does. I am really looking forward to Swan Song and the continuation of this series.
