Wanderlust by Lauren Blakely @LaurenBlakely3

I'd like to start by saying how my mind definitely  started to wander into lust and heated thoughts with this scorching cover. Talk about perfect.

Paris is the city of Romance and Lauren really brought all the sweetest parts of falling in love. Griffin and Joy had the simply best chemistry with heartwarming openness. No games were played. 

Both might have been slightly hesitant to delve completely headfirst into labeling their relationship as more than fun. But this wasn't because they were closed off to forever. It was just the wrong time right place scenario. But love isn't going to lose. These two were destined. You'll need to pick this one up right now and lose yourself into pure sweet romance

Until Harmony by Aurora Rose Reynolds @auroraroser


Aurora you've brought my heart back to life with this perfect love story. So many moments of laughter, swooning and tears. For every moment I read about Harlen and Harmony I had a smile on my face. There's just something magical about romance that way. I need to be swept away and this author does that in the best way possible. Harlen was the gruff , silent and strong type that calls to my heart. Harmony was driven, loving and loyal. She had the best example of how a man should love his woman.

 She wasn't settling for less and actually didn't think she'd find even close to what she was hoping for. Harlen well he had other ideas and knew what he had was special and forever. 

These two together made a sweet song of the best romance melody.
The love story grew at the perfect pace. The heat was Aurora Rose Reynolds authentic meaning sizzling hot. 

The suspense was placed in the right way and the right balance.
But what makes ARR her own unique self is how she weaves connections from all her characters into her story without taking away the spotlight yet adding that emotional impact that only family and friends can do. Nico was always a top fav ARR hero of mine. His love, his loyalty, his protection is always special to my heart. To see him connect and learn and grow as a father watching his baby girl love too was beyond sentimental it was beautiful.
This is romance. No unnecessary drama.

 No fillers from unwanted people. Just a love story you can feel, you can watch grow but more than anything a love story that you believe in and root for.

Until Harmony has risen up the ARR ladder right  up there close to my all time favorite Until November and Until Nico.

Smoke and Mirrors (City Limits, #3) by M. Mabie @AuthorMMabie

When I saw that this book was coming out well let's just say I squeeled a bit.
I really adored the previous books in this series and I can absolutely say that this one is my favorite. There's always gonna be a part of me that loves single mom books so much. Especially when the hero wants to provide and protect and step up where it counts even though there's no blood but there's such deep love driving him. 
Aaron had the biggest heart of any hero I've read in such a long time. The scenes with he and Delaney will remain securely tucked away in my heart. That precocious little girl stole my heart at the same time she captured Aaron's. Faith really had a crappy time of it before Aaron came back. I feel like she held herself in a purgatory of her own making. Because she moved on and it all fell apart while Aaron was away, it's like she felt she didn't deserve to try again. Aaron held himself in the shadows so long. I still can't believe these two just danced around each other for years. But he was absolutely faithful from that day he came back. 
Another weakness of mine is faithful, loyal, and gasp celibate heroes who hold out for the real thing.

The girls chat messages had me laughing so hard.

There's layer after layer of such romantic and emotional beauty here. Familiar faces pop up. This book just flowed the best way. What a beautiful ending too. I really hope Abby moves to Wynne and maybe another Wynne bachelor will fall for another single mom. 

Thanks Ms. Mabie for such a lovely story and beautiful series.

The Smallest Part by Amy Harmon @aharmon_author

“In the end, only three things matter. How much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you.”
- Unknown
There were so many moments of sheer shock and awe in this story that I can't seem to string together all my thoughts. I'm always left profoundly touched and shaken after I finish Amy Harmon's stories and this time is no different. 
Amy Harmon is one author who I read blind. She's someone I trust emphatically to give me a story of flawed characters who are so truly real on the pages that I forget for a moment, lose myself while on the journey and become someone there in it with them. I feel their pain, I love with them and I learn and grow as they do. 
 The characters in all the previous books by Amy changed me in the only way a story can. Every time I open her book I simply take a deep breath and say , Ok let's do this. 
 So begins The Smallest Part.
 Here I am with Noah, Mercedes and Cora and I'm down that familiar rabbit hole again, lost in Amy's wonderland where people forgive, they love, they live. Truly human characters who make mistakes, lie and even break promises yet when you boil it all down, you've got only one choice.

 Mercy and forgiveness. 
Mercedes gave away her heart to keep it. To save her own self from pain she sheltered herself from feeling and risking. Noah respected and loved her so much he let her choose. 
The girl who was as much a part of him as the palms of his hands or the heart in his chest
Then life came in like a wrecking ball and their chance to rise from the wreckage began.
Pressure sometimes begets beautiful things.  
The passion in this novel was brought to a completely different level yet kept that secret and special sense of intimacy. I felt more than heat, I felt emotion and tenderness. Simply put I felt the characters love. 

The scenes in this book between these wonderful characters are so touching and raw that any human with a heart will undoubtedly feel tremendous emotion. There were secrets uncovered, shocking moments that left me absolutely stunned. This journey isn't something I want to ruin for anyone so I won't give more away. Just know that after I closed my kindle, I couldn't fathom starting another book for a good long time. My heart just couldn't hold anything else. 

 For that alone I can't recommend this story hard enough.
