40867588. sy475

My Kind of Beautiful; Finding Love #2 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: March 25, 2021

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/Roommate/Friends-to-Lovers Romance

Author: Nikki Ash

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars



Hit me in the feels – over and over!! Nikki Ash knows right where to land the punches with those powerful moments and I love crying through each and every one of them.

Alec and Lexi have grown up together, are best friends turned roommates, and while neither have ever mentioned the growing feelings between the two of them, they both recognize that jeopardizing what they have for romance isn’t worth it, until the right moment it is. Taking that plunge is everything, but risking it all is what life’s all about.

Alec realizes that if you can’t life each day to its full potential then why live it without the one you love? When Lexi has to answer back with the ultimate hardship, and can they really survive it together?

Nikki’s stories always bring me to tears and this beautiful story is no different. Not only do Alec and Lexi have their own challenges to face, but I love the beautiful messages brought out through the other people they encounter. Aiden hit me right in the solar plexus and I hope he touches you too and I’m dying to find out more about Georgia and Chase.

While this is interconnected with other characters, it can be read as a complete standalone as well and I hope the love that Alec and Lexi have for each other touch you as deeply as it did me. You really can’t go wrong picking up a Nikki Ash book, especially when it’s filled with so much right.


From author Nikki Ash comes a stand-alone friends to lovers, surprise pregnancy romance.

You don’t find love… it finds you.
Alec is the steady in my crazy, the light to my dark. My best friend.
He might be the one for me, but I’m not the one for him.
He deserves to have a wife, kids, a home—the complete package.
How can I build those things with him when I feel so incomplete, afraid I’ll never be enough?
I lose myself in surfing and my art, desperate to find the meaning of my life.
Until Alec confesses his feelings to me, and a tidal wave of emotions threatens to take me under.
Because I feel the same.
But the darkness isn’t finished with me… not even close.

You can’t help who you love.
It’s always been her—my wild and carefree best friend.
I know she thinks she’s not enough, but she’s exactly my kind of beautiful.
But a girl like Lexi needs to be free, and I would rather love her from afar and keep my best friend, than love and lose her.
Then an unexpected loss shatters my world and all bets are off… proving life is too short.
No more secrets, no more waiting.
It’s time to make Lexi mine.
Mine to kiss, mine to touch, mine to love.
All. Mine.

Blog Tour – Start A Fire by Julia Wolf

𝗦𝘁𝗮𝗿𝘁 𝗮 𝗙𝗶𝗿𝗲 𝗯𝘆 𝗝𝘂𝗹𝗶𝗮 𝗪𝗼𝗹𝗳 𝗶𝘀 𝗟𝗜𝗩𝗘! 𝗗𝗼𝗻’𝘁 𝗺𝗶𝘀𝘀 𝘁𝗵𝗶𝘀 𝗱𝗮𝗿𝗸, 𝗯𝘂𝗹𝗹𝘆 𝗿𝗼𝗺𝗮𝗻𝗰𝗲!!

I have my senior year planned: keep my head down, don’t make any waves, and get the diploma. I’ve done the popularity thing at Savage River High, but after two years away, I have no interest in reclaiming my crown.
The last time I put myself in the spotlight, I was left in shambles.
Unfortunately, my carefully laid plans go to hell when I grab the attention of dark, forbidding, and brutally hot Sebastian Vega. He looks at me like he wants to kill my puppy or eat me alive. Quite possibly both.
Sebastian is everywhere I go, and he’s decided I’m the twisted game he wants to play, whether I’m a willing participant or not.
The question is…what will I have to lose in order to win?
Authors Note: This is a DARK high school bully romance with mature themes and dubious situations that some readers may find offensive. If you’re looking for a nice guy, prince of a hero, this story isn’t for you.
