I’ve been on a roll recently. I’ve read some absolutely fantastic books. Here are my favorite recent reads:
The Sexy One by Lauren Blakely — this one is loosely connected to the Big Rock series (she considers these standalones and they are but they also feature lots of the same characters). The hero is Simon, the single dad that Harper meets in Mister O, and Abby, Harper’s best friend. It’s a fall-in-love-with-the-nanny plot and I know employer/employee romances are not for everyone. I’m often wary of them myself. But the neat thing is that Abby also tutors Simon in French so that he has a better chance of winning a restaurant contract. It never feels sordid or quicky at all. Highly recommend this one if you’ve enjoyed the other books. I am a total Blakely convert/fangirl at this point.
To Love and To Cherish by Lauren Layne — final book in the Wedding Belles series and my favorite of hers yet. We finally get the story about Logan and Alexis. This book was tailor made for me! Logan is absolutely swoon-worthy. I know some readers did not warm up to Alexis and I can totally understand why, but I loved everything about this book. I highly recommend this entire series.
Her Halloween Treat by Tiffany Reisz — didn’t know what to expect! I didn’t read any reviews about this beforehand, just saw it mentioned by a lot of people and highly recommended so I thought, why not? I thought this would be angsty but it was SO funny. Some of the best dialogue I’ve read in a book in ages. I felt like I had read so many really serious books lately and I really needed the mental break this one provided. If you’re looking for something short and “light,” this may be right up your alley.
