Child of Mine
Jana Richards
Publication date: February 20th 2019
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Lauren didn’t intend to sleep with her brother-in-law Cole on the day of her husband’s funeral. But now that she is pregnant, she’s not sorry. Cole’s given her a baby, a long-wished-for miracle. He’s been her friend forever, though she never told him or anyone else how unhappy her marriage to his cheating brother was. And she’s afraid to tell the small town that considered her husband a hero that the baby isn’t his.

Cole’s been in love with Lauren since he was sixteen. It kills him that everyone believes the baby is his dead brother’s. All he wants is to claim the baby, and Lauren, as his own. Though she marries him, will Lauren’s heart ever be his?

Lauren must tell the truth or risk losing Cole. Is her newly-discovered love for him greater than her fear of scandal in her hometown?

Ava: A Hart Twins Novel

by Charyse Allan

Genre: YA Romance/Suspense

Release Date: January 29th 2019

Summary:

Ava has everything planned, as usual. Finish senior year at the top of her class, perform her best dance routine at the dance concert, and have the greatest prom ever. But her best friend, Cade, has other ideas. He convinces Ava to abandon her rigid schedule and enjoy her last year of high school. After letting her hair down for one amazing night and exchanging a steamy kiss with Cade, she’s ready to explore this carefree side of herself, until someone plays a cruel joke on her. Humiliated and hurt, Ava retreats into her carefully constructed box, hoping everything will go back to normal.

But it doesn’t. What she thought was a prank has turned out to be so much more, and she doesn’t even know the half of it. Determined to handle the situation herself, Ava hides her true feelings from her friends and her new love interest, but is quickly pushed past her breaking point. The survival of a sickening betrayal, a broken heart, and a perilous attack mean very little when lost in a game you don’t even know you’re playing.

Famous in a Small Town by Emma Mills – Book Review

famous in a small townI have heard so much about Emma Mills since I got back into reading. Everyone seems to rave about her cute contemporaries, and I’ve been meaning to pick up something by her for a while, but never got around to it. I am so grateful that Henry Holt sent me a review copy of her newest novel, Famous in a Small Town – because I LOVED it!

I’m not usually the biggest fan of cute contemporaries, but Emma Mills has such a fantastic writing style, I was pulled in immediately and had a hard time putting it down. I finished it in as little time as possible! Read on for the rest of my thoughts on this awesome book.

My Favorite Half-Night Stand by Christina Lauren – Book Review

my favorite half-night standI love Christina Lauren’s books. My very first book by the duo was Autoboyography, which was an incredible LGBT story about two boys falling in love despite one’s disapproving surroundings. It was the sweetest book, and I highly recommend you give it a read!

After the beauty that was Autoboyography, I knew I had to read more Christina Lauren books. Thankfully, Gallery Books sent me a review copy of My Favorite Half-Night Stand in exchange for an honest review.

Spoiler alert, I loved it.

Breaking Faith by E. Graziani – Book Review

breaking faith ~ I received this book for free from the author in exchange for an honest review. ~

When E. Graziani reached out to me about reviewing one of her novels, I was seriously on top of the world. My Bookstagram was still fairly new at the time, and I absolutely did not expect to have authors asking me of all people to review their books! It was incredibly exciting.

From her catalog of books I chose Breaking Faith. I’m a fan of heavier contemporaries, so the synopsis sounded right up my alley. She sent me the book, and I was ready to jump right in and be swept away in the world of Breaking Faith.
