Review – My Better Life by Sarah Ready

61210532. sx318

My Better Life; Soul Mates in Romeo #6
(An interconnected standalone within a series)

Publication Date: July 19, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Small Town/Romantic Comedy

Author: Sarah Ready

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars


Sweetly charming with lots of snort-out-loud moments and a slooooooowwww burning romance.

My Better Live is super cute and full of fun, full of family and a slow burning romance that, if you are familiar with the movie Overboard, there are a lot of similarities, but that movie is one of my favorite romcoms which made this book the cherry on top when diving into this reading experience.

Gavin begins this book angry, bitter and a not so very nice billionaire. The Goldie Hawn role in this particular book. Jamie is commissioned to make him an art piece which Gavin reneges on, but after an accident leaves him with amnesia Jamie suddenly finds herself with an opportunity to serve Gavin his “just desserts” as her Grandma so kindly puts it.

My Better Life has beautifully sweet moments surrounded by hilarious moments that Sarah Ready writes with absolute ease. While this book has the framework of one of my favorite rom com movies it absolutely stands on its own with it’s unique quirks and fall in love forever kind of story.

When East Coast elite and wealthy bachelor Gavin Williams wakes up in a rural West Virginia hospital, he doesn’t remember who he is or where he’s from.
He doesn’t remember his heiress fiancée, his luxury homes, his exotic travels, or his private plane.
And he especially doesn’t remember insulting local country-girl and fiery redhead Jamie Sutton, smashing her dreams, and leaving her in a pinch.
So when a redhead in overalls stands over his hospital bed and convincingly tells him he loves banjos, hound dogs, and rustling chickens, what’s he supposed to do?
Suddenly Gavin is scrambling to fit into a country life that doesn’t feel familiar and that can’t possibly be his. A wife? Kids? A chicken coop?
His life is full of holes and secrets, desires and dreams, and as Gavin learns more he begins to wonder—will he ever remember? And what happens when he does?

My Better Life is Book 6 in the Soul Mates in Romeo series by Sarah Ready.

Review – Princess Claimed by Alison Aimes

Book cover for Princess Claimed: A Dark Fated-Mates Romance by Alison Aimes

Princess Claimed; Ruthless Warlords #3.5
(Novella within a series)

Publication Date: October 28, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Novella/Sci-Fi/Instant Attraction/Omegaverse/Opposites Attract Romance

Author: Alison Aimes

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars


Looking for action, adventure, romance, fated mates and instant attraction that will melt your panties right off? Princess Claimed is all that and more.

I love coming back to Aimes’ Omegaverse time and time again and this time was no exception. Princess Claimed is fun and steamy and full of great twists. Ari literally falls from the sky right into Pavel’s arms and while these two have an instant connection, Ari has no idea who she is when she lands in Paver’s arms. As much as they want to get down and dirty, her loss of memory does present a bit of a problem, especially with the clues hidden amongst her clothes.

Ari is a princess and Pavel is…not good enough for her. (sad day for fated mates)

Pavel and Ari might seem like opposites, but their chemistry is boiling hot right from the get go and I instantly fell in love with them together. This novella never stops whether it’s passionate, or filled with action in this opposites attract, instant chemistry novella. I loved it!!!

What happens when a bad boy alien trying to go good meets a good girl omega looking to be bad?
He’s shuttle grease and heavy lifting. She’s lace, luxury, and glittering jewels.
He’s grumpy and closed off. She’s got a smile that could unite kingdoms.
He’s a scarred, exiled convict. She’s a dainty angel with the air of a princess.
They’re not just worlds apart. They’re separated by galaxies, circumstances, and expectations.
But when she literally falls from the sky into his arms and their explosive chemistry erupts, he’s only got one objective…convincing her they’re perfect for each other.
But first, he’ll have to get her to remember who she is and why there are men trying to kill her.

Princess Claimed is a scorching novella in the Ruthless Warlords series. It takes places in the same universe as the rest of the series and features characters from the Forbidden zone, but can be read as a stand-alone. It’s a hot sweet Omegaverse with fated mates, Alpha steaminess, and opposites-attract fun. It will initially be published in the Claimed Among the Stars Anthology.

Blog Tour – Beyond My Darkness by RC Boldt

Beyond My Darkness by RC Boldt is now live!

 If you listen, the dead will talk.

USA Today bestselling author RC Boldt delivers a seductively unique romantic suspense with a paranormal twist in Beyond My Darkness…

Twelve years ago, I fled, vowing to never again use my power. But everything changes when I break that vow and bring two bodies back to life in the morgue.

It sends me spinning directly into his orbit.

Arrogant. Menacing. Enigmatic. That’s Bronson Cortez, the notoriously violent gang leader who remains elusive to authorities.

He breaks the law at every turn and answers to no one. But when he offers me a glimpse of what lies beneath that iron-clad exterior, I realize there’s more to him than meets the eye.

The man who fiercely guards his heart somehow manages to claim mine.

But he doesn’t know the truth about me.

I wonder if he could be the first to accept me for who I am—what I am.

I wonder if he’ll be the first to see beyond my darkness.

About Rogue

Secrets are kind of my thing.

Or at least they were. Now my lies are catching up to me, and the stakes are higher than ever.

The men who unexpectedly claimed me are breaking down every wall I have, exposing vulnerabilities and opening old wounds. But now is not the time for weakness. Not when someone is out to get us and enemies are around every corner. It’s time for me to embrace the inner strength that’s guarded my soul for the last decade and prove to the Sinner’s Mark men that I’m more than capable of taking care of myself…and them too.

The average woman would be afraid. But I’m not your average woman. I’m the monster under the bed. The shadow lurking in the corner. I’m the one thing the darkness fears, and there will be no mercy for those that hurt the ones I love.

Rogue is book two in the Sinners Mark MC series, a medium-burn reverse harem romance featuring darker elements. Prepare for a cliffhanger ending with no HEA until the final book.
