Angel's Rest

Before I start, I feel that I should let you guys know something. I have only ever read one contemporary romance before this. That was The Wives of Bath by Wendy Holden and was at least six years ago. I also have a rather prejudiced view of the genre as I’ve always thought the female leads were soppy damsels in distress, and I like my female characters with a bit more backbone. I wouldn’t say that Angel’s Rest changed my opinion really, but I can say that it opened up my…

Deeper - Robin York

Deeper is the first book in the Caroline & West new adult, contemporary romance series. I wasn’t sure what to expect when I picked up this book. I hadn’t heard of the author or the series before (although subsequently have found out it’s the pen name of Ruthie Knox). However, from the first page I was hooked. This book is beautifully written, has two of the most amazing characters I’ve read in a long time – especially within the new adult, contemporary romance genre – and the added aspect of revenge porn which,…

Across the Line

No disclaimer needed for this review – I think I have made my love for hockey pretty clear. I didn’t quite love Across the Line as much as I did it’s predecessor but I still very much enjoyed it. Becca Chen is fiercely independent – a trait that was probably, ironically, strengthened by the parents who insisted she follow their life plans for her and go into the medical profession. Determined to succeed in her chosen profession – owning and managing her own restaurant – it’s pretty much all she…

REVIEW: Dear Lizzie by Annie Lyons

Dear Lizzie by Annie Lyons cover

For a book that opens with a funeral, Dear Lizzie by Annie Lyons turns out to be about the search for happiness, spurred on by the sisterly bond. With the knowledge that she had terminal cancer, Lizzie’s sister, Bea, left twelve letters for Lizzie – one for each month of the coming year after her death. Having been separated from the family for fifteen years, Lizzie’s only friend was Bea, and losing her is like losing a part of her heart. She is struggling with the pain of her grief,…

Not Quite Perfect by Annie Lyons cover

Already a bestseller in ebook format, Not Quite Perfect by Annie Lyons has now been released in paperback in an attempt to introduce more readers to this quirky contemporary romance. The book follows the relationships of sisters, Emma and Rachel, with their respective other halves and the sense of discontent which is sneaking into their lives.

He adores her, frequently surprising her…

Sea of Love by Susan Donovan cover

Beginning a new romance series set on a holiday island is Sea of Love by Susan Donovan, which introduces us to Bayberry Island and their mermaid mythology. The Flynn family have been living on Bayberry Island for generations, but recent changes to the economy have forced them to turn their fishmonger business into a B&B. This accommodation is currently run by the Flynn’s daughter, Rowan, who was duped by her investor fiancée into signing over what remained of the family’s fortune. She returned to the island in shame, running the…

Happy Birthday

It’s a little difficult to categorise Happy Birthday. I’m not a massive proponent of the books needing to be categorised – if you enjoy them then what does it matter? Besides which, whatever it is, Happy Birthday succeeds at it beautifully. Phoebe Bowler has had better times. After being jilted at the altar by her long term boyfriend she barely has the means to keep hold of what was once their shared flat. Just as she finally seems to be getting her life back on track she finds out that she is living next…
