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 ...

The Best Kept Secret

Tawna Fenske certainly knows how to bring the funny.  Sometimes she’ll make you cringe at her character's behavior, and sometimes you’ll get a giggle over their silliness.  The Best Kept Secret made me do both, and your ability to enjoy a lot of goofiness will best determine how much you’ll ...

Finding Mr. Right Next Door

There’s a saying that goes ‘here for a good time, not for a long time’, which perfectly describes the short (200 pages in e-book form) friends-to-lovers Finding Mr. Right Next Door. Lexi Dean and Matt Freeman are renowned amongst the Station 1 fireteam of Dry Rock, CO for their “twenty-f ...

Island Affair

When I think of Priscilla Oliveras’ books, 'joy' is the word that comes to mind. I don’t consider her novels fluffy romps (at least not the ones I’ve read so far), but there’s a deeply joyful quality to her stories that never fails to lift my mood. Island Affair deals with deeply emotional t ...

Burn Zone

I’m a big fan of Annabeth Albert’s and a new book from her is always a red letter day on my calendar!  Burn Zone is book one in her new Hotshots series which features a group of guys who work as Smoke Jumpers in the fictional Painter’s Ridge in central Oregon – and I admit I had to look up ...
