A tragic mistake drove them apart, leaving him shattered and unable to forgive the woman he loved. But when his greatest enemy threatens her life, Ezra leaps into action, prepared to do anything to try to save her.

Solo accepted long ago that she won’t get over Ezra. She’s worked for years to get back into his life, looking for any way to reignite the love they once shared. Unfortunately, nothing seems to penetrate the wall he has built between them. When she’s arrested for a crime she didn’t commit, she believes she’s on her own.

Days on the run soon turn to steamy nights, but Levi Green isn’t about to let them find their happily ever after.

Forget About Me, an all-new feel good, retro romantic comedy from Karen Grey is coming October 22nd, and we have the first sneak peek!

“You May Be Right” – Billy Joel
Lucy’s Keep on Truckin’ Mixtape, Song #


Falling in love, killing a guy by accident and mortally wounding myself when it appears that my bride has taken her life is a lot. Doing it six times in four days is just too much. The addition of two weekend matinees to Shakespeare Boston’s Romeo and Juliet schedule must be taking its toll. Still, I wouldn’t trade it for anything. This year—just like the past seven—began in Los Angeles, where modeling work has dominated my life, keeping me far from home and too busy to do theater. Six months into 1988, due to circumstances I never expected to face, I’m back in Boston performing for a live audience. It feeds my soul, so I don’t care if I’m exhausted.

I’m tired at the end of every weekend, but on this particular late-August Monday morning, I might be hallucinating. Adrenaline spiking, heart in my throat, it takes a few beats for me to figure out what just happened. My hands grip the railing that kept me from falling off my second-floor porch as I take in the lump I just tripped over on my way out the door.
It’s a mottled gray color, and I think that’s fur. Not moving, though. Wondering if it’s alive, I step closer. It makes a snuffling noise, unfolding itself, and I release the breath I’ve been holding. It’s not some weird package from a mega-fan; it’s a dog. With tufted brows and a whiskery muzzle, he looks like the dog in that movie when we were kids—Benji.
“Where the heck did you come from, little guy?”

Ben Porter may be living the dream, but it’s not his.

His dad’s health scare might not be the ideal reason to come home for the summer, but it’s a welcome break from the stellar glitz of Ben’s life in Los Angeles. Even if modeling has him rivaling Marky Mark’s fame, posing isn’t his passion. Landing a role with a Boston Shakespeare theater brings him closer to fulfilling his dreams of being a real actor.

Facing the reason he went west in the first place? That’s another story.

Lucy Minola’s dreams were shattered seven years ago when a drunk driver smashed into her brother’s car. She knows it was her fault. So as penance, she works hard to care for her family, goes to confession faithfully, and buries all the feelings she had for the person who left when she needed him most: her brother’s best friend.

When an injured dog brings them back together, Lucy’s good-girl facade begins to crack. Women everywhere are obsessed with the rad body they see in magazines, but she’s the only one Ben seems to notice.

She can’t trust herself with the man who walked away… but can she let him go a second time?

This bittersweet romance, book two in Karen Grey’s 1980’s Boston Classics series, proves that everyone deserves a second chance in love and in life.

Declan Mahoney and Evie Hewitt are childhood best friends who become young lovers on one summer night in the Carolina mountains. But the next morning, they learn Declan’s firefighter father has been killed while saving Evie’s family and home. Consumed by grief, and determined to take up his responsibility as the oldest Mahoney sibling, Declan turns from Evie. That heartbreak sends her running halfway across the state, rarely seeing Declan over the next twenty years. But when Evie comes back to Bitter Bark, a couple of meddling grannies who call themselves the Dogmothers hatch their plan to rekindle this romance. They arrange a "chance" meeting and plant some surprises along the way.

When she sees Declan, Evie is knocked over by emotions for the firefighter who might just be the reason she’s forty, childless, and dedicated to her career. She’s also nearly knocked over by the Husky-Malamute mix at his side. With an unexpected assist from a dog who’d been surrendered at the fire station, Declan decides he can’t miss this chance to reconnect with the woman he’s never forgotten. It doesn’t take long for old feelings to burn hot…and it doesn’t take long for Evie, a veterinary neurologist, to notice something's not quite right with the gorgeous dog Declan’s about to put up for adoption.

As they work together to help Judah, more than one creature is healed. Evie starts to demolish the walls grief had raised around Declan’s heart, and he reawakens her dreams of marriage and motherhood. But as they fall back into each other’s arms, Declan discovers the truth about his father’s death, and that revelation threatens more than their love…it could threaten their lives. Will Evie and Declan’s dreams be destroyed by tragedy? Or can they finally let go of the past so they can take hold of the future…together?

All of the covers of The Dogmothers were all photographed at Alaqua Animal Refuge in Florida using rescue dogs from the shelter, and "local heroes" as models. A portion of book sales is donated to that amazing organization!

The Dogmothers - a spinoff series from the popular "Dogfather" books

Once Daniel Kilcannon, a widower with six unmarried kids, has orchestrated wonderfully happy endings for all his offspring and found one of his own, a new matchmaking team takes over in Bitter Bark, North Carolina. Meet Yiayia and Gramma Finnie. One has the steel spine of a Greek warrior, the other has the sweet soul of an Irish poet. Together, along with two darling dachshunds, these Dogmothers won't stop until all nine of their grandchildren are hooked, hitched, and happy.

The Dogmothers #5

Contemporary Romance

Review copy provided by publisher

Liza's Review:

Man's Best Friend is the newest installment in The Dogmothers series from Roxanne St. Claire. Declan Mahoney and Evie Hewitt have been best friends since they were kids, and discovered they shared a birthday. They spent each birthday together until they returned from their birthday camping trip to discover Declan's father had died in a house fire saving Evie's family and home. Declan completely closed off basically from everyone and stepped up to fill his father's shoes, and lost his best friend Evie in the process. 

Man's Best Friend was such an emotional read for me. My heart broke for both Evie and Declan as the story started. I lost my mom in a house fire when I was young, so I understood some of what Declan was feeling when it came to losing his dad. I just wanted to hug both Declan and Evie, especially when Declan pretty much shut down for years. I would almost say Declan was almost just living a half-life for the 20 years they were apart. Not only did he end a friendship with Evie that morning, but they had just taken their relationship to the next level and had all the plans for their future right within their grasp.

I absolutely loved that Declan and Evie were brought together thanks to the Dogmothers and Evie's grandfather, but it was a dog abandoned at the fire station that initially kept them spending more time together. Evie is a brilliant veterinarian neurologist who is the best in her field and just who Declan needs to help out Judah. While there were a few bumps along the road for Declan and Evie, I felt how much they loved each other from day one. Even after 20 years apart, they seemed to pick right back up with their inside jokes and banter, and their chemistry was amazing. I loved how important their families were to both, and I especially loved the newest dog in the series, Judah. I loved the little family Declan and Evie made with Judah. Seriously all the feels as I read this story. 

I was completely charmed by their second chance romance, and loved how many emotions I experienced while reading this story. Roxanne St. Claire is the master of the sexy, sweet, funny, and heartwarming stories, and Man's Best Friend was another winner in this series. I absolutely devoured this story and can't wait to be back with the Dogmothers and their families again soon.

Maine Sullivans #3, Sullivans #21

Contemporary Romance

Review copy provided by publisher

Liza's Review:

When You Kiss Me is the latest release in the Maine Sullivans series from Bella Andre. The Sullivan family absolutely is one of my favorite series of characters ever, and I love there are so many branches of this family tree. When You Kiss Me is Lola Sullivan's story, and I absolutely couldn't put this book down!

Lola Sullivan is a beautiful voluptuous woman. Most men have only looked at her and seen what she looked like without ever caring to learn more. As this has happened to her most of her life, she is very careful around men and very slow to trust anything at face value. Duncan Lyman has his own trust issues thanks to his older brother, and is still working on righting the wrongs his brother did 5 years ago. When he meets Lola, he is absolutely drawn to her, and that Duncan saw Lola's inner beauty shining through. I loved neither could really take their eyes off the other and they didn't want to be apart from one another long.

I knew Duncan delaying telling Lola about his past with his brother could come back to bite him in the ass, just not quite in the way that it did. I also understood how hurt, upset, and angry Lola was, especially as she shared things from her past she hadn't even shared with her sisters. Lola had been burned in the past, and I hated she felt doubts about her instincts. Lola is such a passionate woman, and I loved even in her anger, she started seeing things didn't add up as they should for Duncan to be the bad guy.

Something that runs pretty true for many of the Sullivan offspring is knowing almost from the moment they meet "the one" they have meet their other half. Lola and Duncan connected from the moment they first saw each other, and I absolutely felt a happy sigh when they both struggled to stop staring. Add in their smoking hot chemistry, while trying to wait a bit to make love, and I was hooked on them as a couple, even when things looked bleak. I have mad love for Lola and Duncan as a couple.

Bella Andre has once again given me a beautiful, sexy, and emotional romance right when I needed it. Between all the various branches of the Sullivan family, this is the 21st book in the series, and they continue to entertain and keep me coming back for more with each new installment.

I leaned against the tree at the edge of the beach, taking in the show. The woman seemed to be one with the water. Smooth strokes cut through the inlet’s subtle waves. They were both graceful and powerful, restrained and explosive. A juxtaposition so similar to the woman herself.

Kenna made her way towards the rocky shore. Climbing to her feet, rivulets of water traced paths down curves that even her full-coverage, black Speedo couldn’t disguise. She wrung out her hair, and the long, dark sheet sprang up in unexpected curls. They reminded me of that part of Kenna she liked to hide away from the world.

Her movements faltered, and then she swiped her towel up from the beach. “What are you doing here?”

I grinned, pushing off the tree trunk and striding towards her. “Caelyn told me this was a good spot for paddleboarding.”

Kenna mumbled something about her friend being a traitor. “I’m surprised you’re even up this early.”

I gave a little shrug. I had to be at a meeting at ten, so this was the only opportunity I’d have all day to be on the water. “Every day is different.”

“Must be nice to just flit around wherever the wind takes you.”

My phone buzzed in my pocket, and I slid it out. A familiar number, one I wished like hell I could forget, flashed across my screen along with a text.

Hey, Crosby. Can we talk? It’s important.

My face went hard as ice seemed to slide through my veins. Alicia’s gamble hadn’t paid off, and now she was trying to get her second choice back on the line. Not in this lifetime.

A cold hand grazed my forearm, yet somehow, the touch seemed to heat my skin. “Are you okay?”

I gave my head a little shake, plastering on my signature carefree smile. “Just those damn telemarketers. They never give up.”

Kenna’s hand fell away, and she took a step back. “You can just tell me to mind my own business. You don’t have to lie.”

I instantly felt the loss of her heat, the faint buzz on my skin where she’d touched me. “Fair enough.” Kenna kept her gaze locked to mine as if daring me to tell her the truth. I took the coward’s way out and changed the subject. “I like these.” I reached out and took a strand of her hair in my fingers, releasing it and letting the curl bounce.

Pink tinged her cheeks. “I prefer it straight.”

My grin grew wider. “I don’t know, Brown Eyes, I think you should let it run wild.” And what I would give to see this woman free and untamed.

Nikki's Review:

Catherine Cowles never ceases to amaze me with her phenomenal writing. She is truly one of my unicorn authors! Perfect Wreckage was everything I want in a romance. The characters were well developed and I cared about them, the plot was amazing, and the angst was enough to pull some tears from me. All

the ingredients were there.

Kenna and Crosby were wonderful together. I adored their banter. Kenna was snarky, but not mean, more witty and funny. Crosby was sweet, adventurous, smart, and sexy AF! All of these things together provided a ton of off the charts chemistry. 

Both of these characters had so many layers. It was amazing to see everything peeled back, and reveal all their growth as a result. Speaking of characters...I LOVE all the players in this series. I love the small island town setting, and the closeness that this group of friends share. Ms. Cowles has the magic touch when it comes to making me really invest my heart into a series. Like all of her other books, I put Perfect Wreckage down at the end with a sense of warm and fuzzy. It’s kinda like coming home.

Perfect Wreckage is simply...perfect. I’m so excited to see where the rest of this series will take the characters, and the readers. Kenna and Crosby’s book was a heartbreaking, but uplifting, delight.

Series: Love Distilled

Genre: Contemporary Romance



Photographer: Wander Aguiar

Model: Lucas Loyola

Cover Designer: Letitia Hasser, RBA Designs


Connor isn’t in the market for messy.

His life is going completely according to plan. He’s set to become CEO of his family’s company, his Ironman time is better than ever, and his regular poker nights with the guys are his one night a month he can stop worrying about counting macros and indulge himself. What he doesn’t need is a relationship with Emerson Dyer—daughter of his father’s lifelong enemy and most-hated rival.

Emerson’s life is nothing but messy.

Since her father died, leaving her CEO of their gin distillery, everything that could go wrong has gone wrong. Emerson is barely holding it together—what she doesn’t need is a complication like Connor Finch. Sure, his abs do look like they’ve been photoshopped, but she has no time to spend counting them. It’s her company’s numbers she should be worrying about. Still, there’s something about the way he makes her feel.

Together, they’re perfect.

Connor knows he and Emerson don’t make sense on paper. Too many differences between them—and one big secret that could destroy Emerson’s family business tells him to cut and run. But for once in his life, Connor doesn’t care about messy or imperfect—because the fact is, Emerson is the one perfect thing he needs in his life. Now if he can only convince her . . .


Scarlett Cole is a contemporary romance author that calls both Toronto, Canada and Manchester, England home. A born city dweller, she periodically quashes the urge to live in the country by hiking up a mountain to remind herself that living away from people would terrify the pants off her.

She believes everybody deserves their love story to be told and loves her heroes on the rough and rugged side…and usually tall (because she married one of those 6ft 6” men you read about in romance!). She’s an A-type personality and Scorpio star sign, so good luck getting her to do anything she doesn’t want to.

When she isn’t writing, she’s happy to talk hot men and expensive shoes while drinking a cold gin and tonic. Don’t bring up olives. As far as Scarlett is concerned, they are the devil’s food. As long as you don’t bring up olives, she’s happy to hear from any time.

When their lips met, he could taste the gin on her lips. Her tongue met his as boldly as the gin had done, bursting with life and flavor.

Her hand went around his neck, tugging him toward her, and he had half a mind to take her on the bar. Only the recollection that they were in her workplace stopped him from acting upon it.

When they finally broke for air, Emerson grinned. “When I said let it roll over the tongue, I meant yours not mine.”

“It tasted better on yours,” he said. “I needed a second opinion on the citrus.”

San Francisco book-restoration expert Brooklyn Wainwright was hoping for a fun, relaxing weekend at a local book fair, but a murderer made other plans in the latest in this New York Times bestselling series.

Brooklyn and her new hunky husband, Derek, are excited to be guests at Dharma’s first annual Book Festival. The entire town is involved and Brooklyn’s mom Rebecca is taking charge. In addition to all of her other event related duties, she’s got Brooklyn doing rare book appraisals and is also staging Little Women, the musical to delight the festival goers. If that wasn’t enough, she and Meg—Derek’s mom—will have a booth where they read palms and tarot cards.

Brooklyn couldn’t be prouder of her mom’s do-it-all attitude so when a greedy local businessman who seems intent on destroying Dharma starts harassing Rebecca, Brooklyn is ready to take him down. Rebecca is able to hold her own with the nasty jerk until one of her fellow festival committee members is brutally murdered and the money for the festival seems to have vanished into thin air. 

Things get even more personal when one of Brooklyn’s nearest and dearest is nearly run down in cold blood. Brooklyn and Derek go into attack mode and the pressure is on to catch a spineless killer before they find themselves skipping the festival for a funeral.

Liza's Review:

The Grim Reader was another winner in the Bibliophile series from Kate Carlisle. I've loved this series from the moment I read the first book featuring Brooklyn Wainwright. I love books, so it isn't surprising how much I love reading about a character that works with restoring books all day. Add in Brooklyn's hunky husband Derek and all of her family in Dharma, and I was hooked from the very first page.

I love each new adventure with Brooklyn and Derek, and love even more when we get time with their families. I have mad love for their parents and their siblings. The town of Dharma is also another character in itself, and I wish it was real so I could visit it. Brooklyn is usually the one to find all the dead bodies in this series, and I loved the switch up where instead it was Brooklyn's mom and Derek's mom finding the dead body. Brooklyn is always protective of her friends and family, but I loved she was in overdrive mode to solve this murder since their moms were involved. 

I can usually follow the trail a bit better than I did with The Grim Reader. I tend to figure out the who done it before Brooklyn and Derek announce it. Ms. Carlisle totally kept me guessing this time, and I loved it. Seriously, even knowing all the clues were there all along, I was still surprised. The Bibliophile books are my favorite cozy mystery series of books. I usually not only read, but listen to the audiobook from the library as well. Fourteen books into this series and I still check for the next book in the series several times a year. Fans of cozy mysteries should totally check this series out! I promise you won't be disappointed at all!

Nikki's Review:

This book wrecked me. I was barely 15% into it and I was hot mess. Seriously, we’re talking full on snotty nose and tears. 

Richard and Violet were...are, so ridiculously in love. I can’t go into full details because you need to go on the journey with them, but Richard left Violet without much of an explanation. And so starts years of misery for them both. Have I mentioned that I was in a constant state of near hysterics with these two? I wanted to shake them and tell Richard to be honest, and just love up on each other. And then I was swooning. It was a damn roller coaster. But I didn’t want to get off.

I think to best enjoy this book, you should read book #2 first. I mean, you should read #1, but if you’re one of those crazy people, who I don’t understand, and can start a series in the middle, make sure you start with Catch Me When I Fall. There’s a ton of story building that overlaps with this one. 

I have read books that have broke my heart and made me teary eyed, but this one metaphorically brought me to my knees. I was exhausted after reading Richard and Violet’s story. I was also totally book hungover. One thing that lightened things up in this book, and often made me giggle was the little girl, Daisy. She was a freakin’ hoot! I can just imagine this precocious little wild child in my head. She kept Violet on her toes the entire book! 

Read this book. If you love a good snot and bawl as much as I do, then look no further. Keep your tissues close because A.L. Jackson has written a brilliant story with all the emotions. Each book in this series just gets better and better. I need book #4...like, yesterday.

 A romance writer who no longer believes in love and a literary writer stuck in a rut engage in a summer-long challenge that may just upend everything they believe about happily ever afters.

Augustus Everett is an acclaimed author of literary fiction. January Andrews writes bestselling romance. When she pens a happily ever after, he kills off his entire cast.

They're polar opposites.

In fact, the only thing they have in common is that for the next three months, they're living in neighboring beach houses, broke, and bogged down with writer's block.

Until, one hazy evening, one thing leads to another and they strike a deal designed to force them out of their creative ruts: Augustus will spend the summer writing something happy, and January will pen the next Great American Novel. She'll take him on field trips worthy of any rom-com montage, and he'll take her to interview surviving members of a backwoods death cult (obviously). Everyone will finish a book and no one will fall in love. Really.

Liza's Review:

I really enjoyed Beach Read. I have to say I would really characterize it more as fiction with romantic elements, but overall, the story was pretty enjoyable. January Andrews has moved into the lake house her father left her in his will...when she discovered he had a mistress in his hometown for years. When she moves into her father's house to prepare it to sell after breaking up with a longtime boyfriend, she discovers Augustus (Gus) Everett lives in the lake house next door. January always felt like she was in competition with Gus while in college, and she still feels that way upon first seeing him again.

I have to say I wasn't the biggest fan of January when the book started. She seemed pretty selfish and whiny honestly. I get she had been thrown for a loop when she learned about her dad, but she really made me mad that she totally distanced herself from her mom almost as a punishment for knowing about his mistress but not sharing with January. She was also a bit of a tool to Gus, who really seemed like a nice guy when we first met him. Thankfully, I kept reading and I quickly realized January was a much better person than she presented at the beginning of the story. She is classified as a romance writer, but I really felt like she was more of a women's fiction author the more she described her books, and I saw definite growth of her character over the course of the book.

I really liked Gus upon meeting him, and was so glad he and January honestly became true friends the more time they spent together. He had a bit of drama in his past, yet I didn't feel like he relished in the misery as much as January did initially. I felt like he helped January get to the point where she was willing to listen to find out the truth about her dad and accept so much about the past she didn't know. I also kinda loved they had a bit of a slow burn to a romance. I felt they were both attracted to one another from pretty much the moment they saw each other again, but them becoming friends first totally worked for me. While I felt Gus was in a much better place than January when I started reading Beach Read, I do have to say his character also grew and opened up more over the course of this story.

Beach Read was overall a pretty fun story. I did get frustrated with the characters a time or two, but ended up really loving where Ms. Henry took her readers. While Beach Read was the first book I've read by Emily Henry, it definitely won't be the last.
