    4.5 out of 5 stars 7

It all started with a mysterious blue note sewn into a wedding dress. Something blue. I’d gone to sell my own unworn bridal gown at a vintage clothing store. That’s when I found another bride’s “something old.” Stitched into the lining of a fabulously feathered design was the loveliest message I’d ever read: Thank you for making all of my dreams come true. The name embossed on the blue stationery: Reed Eastwood, obviously the most romantic man who ever lived. I also discovered he’s the most gorgeous. If only my true-love fantasies had stopped there.

4.5 Oh So Emotional Stars
Not what I was expecting. I thought it would be the same old egotistical alpha jerk chasing, beautiful, strong willed jilted bride to be. It wasn’t! It was so much more. Although it wasn’t a complete sobfest, it was highly emotional and I did shed a tear or two. I adored Reed Eastwood, I didn’t agree with all his choices or decisions, but I adored him all the same. The chemistry between him and Charlotte Darling (with a capital D), was brilliant. They were so funny together, their sense of humours just clicked. I laughed, I cried and I loved. Supporting characters, too, were perfect. Wonderful writing (no surprise there). I was rooting for these two from the get-go, and that was before all the curveballs got thrown. I listened to this on audible and although I’m very well acquainted with Sebastian York, Lynn Barrington is new to me. She did not disappoint.

Picture this - I’m ready to win back the love of my life, and I’m going big this time. We’re talking boom box, sing her name in the rain, let the whole damn neighborhood know I'm good and ready this time around. After all, if you're going to grand gesture the ever-loving hell out of a second chance, you need to pull out all the stops. There’s only one little problem. My college girlfriend isn't the one who shows up when I play my "I'll do anything to win you back" tune. The woman who flings open the second-floor window tells me my ex doesn’t live here anymore.

Opposites most definitely attract in this cliched romantic comedy. A lovely story, no angst, great characters and a tried and tested storyline. Kyler really is clueless when it comes to women and most definitely relationships, but with the help of his new companion Finley, he’ll be able to win back his college sweetheart. As you may have guessed, by the end of their road trip to meet the illusive ex girlfriend, both Kyler and Finley have found much common ground and are desperately fighting the attraction they feel for the other, lying to themselves is not really working. I love the writing, the movie references are truly wonderful, once they got past their differences they really were a match made in heaven. Unconventional start and an unconventional journey leading to a wonderful movie moment finish. Narrated perfectly by Joe Arden and Andi Arndt.

Zane Phillips mistook me for his dog walker. It shouldn’t surprise me that the man with a suit more expensive than my rent would assume that I was there to serve him. The positive? I put him in his place. The negative? I missed my job interview because of it. Now I find out he’s a rich Australian entrepreneur, and he wants to make up for tanking my interview. Yes, he’s impossibly hot - but he’s also an arrogant jackass - so...no thanks. But after a little white lie I tell spirals out of control, I’m somehow offered the chance to play Zane’s girlfriend to help promote his new dating website....

Enemies to lovers to so much more. You know the story, just sex, no feelings, they’ll walk away once it’s out of their system, yada, yada, yada. Well that was Zane (super hot and arrogant) and Harlow (gorgeous, with a heart of gold), they meet, misunderstand each other, come to an agreement, lie to the world, fake a relationship and then of course deny their feelings. Fab story, wonderful writing with interesting characters. I loved it, I also loved the narration, I’m not too familiar with either Erin Mallon or Rupert Channing, I’ll most definitely be looking into getting more of their audios.

Sweet, nerdy, lovable Keaton. She's my best friend and has been for years. Sure she likes numbers and math, and thinks doing other people's taxes is fun. And I like...none of that stuff. She reads novels I'll never understand, and yet we just click. There's no one I'd rather share breakfast burritos with or binge watch hours of Netflix with. She's my person. And so when she takes off her glasses and asks me to help her improve her skills in the bedroom, I barely have to think about it. Of course I'll help her. There's no one better for the job. But what happens when she's ready to take her new-found confidence and move on?

Wonderfully sweet, friends to lovers. No angst, not a lot of drama, just pure romance. I loved it. Keaton and Slate were a match made in heaven, they just took 10 years to figure it out, and only because Keaton decided she needed help in the bedroom. It would appear Keaton was doing just fine with her new tutor, Slate, it was obviously all those who came before him who were selfish lovers. A fun journey of sex tutorage and relationship navigation for these two besties. Thoroughly enjoyable, it also helped that I had the delectable duo of Andi Arndt and Sebastian York to assist.

All is lost. All. I don't recognize myself in the mirror anymore. My thoughts are filled with hatred and dripping with rage. I've lost my soul. She took it to the depths of hell with her and haunts me with images of what could have been. Sixty lives are mine to take. Sixty lives stand in the way of my vengeance. Sixty lives, plus one more. Mine. When the last drop of blood falls - mine will be spilled.

Oh how I love, love, love Chase Abandonato, and it’s so good that we get another Chase book. Thank you Mil for your sacrifice. It’s our gain. That said, Chase is so full of hate in the first chapters of this story (thanks Mil), I wasn’t sure if he would ever find peace, even when Luciano was thrown into the lion’s den. It was obvious that Luciano was the exact opposite of Mil, and that is why it worked between them. However, I was of the mindset that she was a little too weak. How wrong was I? When push came to shove, Luciana gave it her all, she had a strong spirit, and thankfully, Chase didn’t break it. Another fantastic addition to the series, a series I find highly addictive. I can’t seem to get enough, and I hate the waiting. I started this series on audio, and that is how I will finish the series. The narrators have been perfect throughout, they sound exactly as I would imagine. The only problem, I have to wait a little longer for audible release. Full five stars.

As the team’s publicist, I need a football player to be the face of our charity calendar, and Jones Beckett needs a savvy PR woman to manage his new sponsorship deal. A simple give and take, and I’m sure I’ll have no problem following my iron-clad rule - don’t date a player. And never ever fall for one. No matter how charming, big-hearted, and devilishly clever the man is. But you know what they say about best laid plans.... Once I start spending my off-season days and nights with Jones, I’m following a brand new playbook.

Forbidden romance, I love it, and this book ticked all the boxes. Super hot NFL player, Jones Beckett, falls for the off limits team publicist, Jillian Moore, in this sweet sports romance. Jillian did a fantastic job of avoiding awkward one on one situations with Jones, even when he was flaunting his crown jewels in the changing room. All it takes though is one business trip, just the two of them, and their walls start to crumble, and although they agree it’s just a weekend fling, that’s easier said than done. Lovely writing, an adorable couple with some seriously cute animal action. On a personal note, I would really love to get my hands on ‘that’ calendar. Sweet, fun, sexy read. Perfectly narrated.

There are a million reasons why Miles Hart isn't the man I should date but allow me to enumerate the top three: He's friends with my brother; he's a single dad; and he's a sexy, in-demand rock star. He might as well wear an off-limits, totally unavailable, and don't-even-attempt-to-ride-this-ride sign. And there's one more little itty-bitty thing - he's never asked me on a date. That is, until he asks me to be his plus-one when his band plays at his high school reunion. It shouldn't be a big deal. After all, we're just friends, and no one is giving us our own hashtag. Except me....

What a lovely, sweet read. Quite possibly my favourite of the three. I just love these brothers so much, what a wonderful family, and don’t even get me going on Ben, he is just adorable, he definitely steals the show. Friends to lovers, forbidden(ish) romance, featuring single dad Miles, and single mum to be Roxy, as they decide to be each others plus one for special occasions. A lovely story with wonderful characters (including another hot sexy Hart brother), and lots of cameos from all the previous stories. A complete feel good read. Once again narrated perfectly by Sebastian York and Andi Arndt.

I've waited years for my drop-dead sexy boss, Tristan Hunter, to notice me as something other than his right-hand gal. But though his dog is deeply in love with me, Tristan and I seem doomed to the friend zone. Until the night we kiss... It's all a ruse, of course - our make-out session is for the benefit of the two heartbreakers who dumped us - but very real sparks fly when his lips meet mine. At least...they're real for me.

Tristan, the youngest Hunter is sensitive and vulnerable, yet he’s still as masculine, sexy and adorable as his older brothers. He’s not naive (well he was with his bitchy ex), he’s honest to a fault and doesn’t shy away from commitment, it’s very refreshing. His best friend, and work colleague, Zoey Childers has crushed on him for what seems like forever, and when thy get a chance to explore a relationship (admittedly a fake one), they both jump at the chance. It isn’t going to stay fake for long though, they’re both just too innocent and honest to lie to each other. A fun read, with the naughty pooch, Luke, stealing the limelight on more than one occasion. Again, perfect narration from my favourite duo.

They say Rafe Hunter is trouble with a capital T. I say - bring it on.  As long as Trouble comes in a package as delicious as Rafe’s, I’m ready to climb on his Harley and ride all night long - and I’m not just talking about his motorcycle. I can hide out until the scandal with my evil ex blows over and have a wild rebound at the same time. Besides, I’ve got no heart left to break. My ex made sure of that. As long as Rafe and I keep our no-strings fling from our families, what can possibly go wrong?

Hooked. That was me, from the first page. I love these Hunter brothers and their stories. Hot, sexy alpha males that know exactly what they want. When Rafe and Carrie agree to a friends with lots of benefits deal, you know straight away that it’s all going to go wrong, but the journey to their destination is one helluva ride? A wonderful story, excellent writing and fun sexy characters, apart from Jordan, who is described perfectly as a ‘tool’. Oh, and yes, book 3 is downloaded and waiting for me as I type. As usual. Perfect narration.

For six generations, the women of wine country have had a saying: don’t bang a Hunter man unless you want a bun in your oven. Yeah, well. I’ve got a saying too: no thanks. The last thing I need is baby makes three. My business is expanding, and the only thing I’m interested in getting knocked up is my bottom line. But then one night, Emma Haverford makes me an offer I can’t refuse - she backs away from the land I have my eye on in exchange for a favor...a big, fat, baby-making favor....

My first solo Lili Valente read, and I can’t wait to meet Hunter Brother #2, he’s waiting on my kindle as I type. I love standalone series following family members. This is a fun, flirty and predictable read, no surprises, but a truly wonderful romance with fab characters that I was really rooting for. Emma Haverford wants a baby, more than anything, only problem is, she’s no plans to be in a relationship, and she’s not too keen on a faceless donor. Dylan Hunter is prime baby making material, only problem is, he’s not interested in making a baby, until that is, his arch nemesis, Emma Haverford makes him an offer too good to be true. An all round enjoyable read that kept me hooked from the get-go. Oh, and yes, let’s not forget the perfect narration from my favourite duo.
