Love on the Brain

Love on the Brain is Ali Hazelwood's second full length romcom starring women in STEM and I devoured it. It's an utter winner! The heroine, Bee, is a neuroscientist who just got offered her dream job to work on a project at NASA. There’s just one little problem. She’ll be co-leading the pr ...

Circling Back to You

Loves strikes a brokerage firm in the charming Circling Back to You, which features a quick paced romance and some relatable, enjoyable characters.  But the slightly-imperfect style here kept this from a higher grade. LA native Matt Escanilla is Cadence Lim’s favorite co-worker at Prism, a bro ...

Up in Smoke

Kate Meader's books have been on my radar since her Hot in the Kitchen series debuted in 2013.  That was followed by her Hot in Chicago series (Playing with Fire, a scorching enemies to lovers romance remains a favourite and made my top ten list in 2015).  Since then she's delved into some hockey ...

Cream and Punishment

Susannah Nix is a new-to-me author but I've heard good things about her writing so I decided to give her King Family series a try. I'm not a stickler for reading a series in order unless there are continuity/world building concerns, which usually isn't the case in contemporary romances with multiple ...
