If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading at all. ~ Oscar Wilde ~

I am a total book addict! I read so many books under the sky, I’ve lost count. But then I also have only a handful of authors/writers who really enamored me and I religiously read them, re-read them and re-read some more! I have ebooks and paperbacks….talk about serious addiction. They are like chicken soup for the soul!!!

Be warned, I can also be a bit of a book snob…sorry! But never in disrespect. Shelter In Place and Working From Home has me scouring countless new authors and books I normally wouldn’t have had the time for. And then, once in a blue moon you come across a couple of authors who really, really get into your soul and now your are binge reading every single one of their books. You wake up with the characters on mind, scenes behind your eyes and a smile on your lips.

And this brings me to Riley Edwards and her orgasmic heroes!!!!! Not that I’ve never read her, but it was only as part of her twinsies Susan Stoker’s series and crossovers. (Now Susan Stoker is another different story for another day :)) But now I’ve managed to read her entire series, back to back and a few more times…

If I end up reading the same book two three times in a row, re-visit certain scenes, that book for me is a winner! Reading Riley’s books was intense gratification and the fifth time was immense pleasure. It’s a world of heroism and courage, valor and bravery, brotherhood and family, passion and devotion. They made me cry and laugh, exasperated and angry, happy and content.

Gotta tell you, she really can’t churn out these books as fast as I can read!!! 😉 Incredibly worthy reads.

And here’s some tantalizing coming your way soon……enjoy,

I’m off on a date with Colin Doyle and his “driving me nuts” Erin Anderson 😉

I have followed Rachel Lacey from her first book and she still is on my favorite list. From her first foray into writing books starting with “Unleashed” to “Don’t Cry For Me”, she had an amazing span of genre that I totally loved reading.

Don'tCryForMe-MidnightInManhattan#1-RachelLacey-Apr2020

First in her Midnight In Manhattan Series, Rachel introduces her readers to the petite, strong, professional Eve Marlow, who owns her own marketing company as well as a TV Show. A show that needs some uplift and a new lease of life. Who would have thought that finding a litter of kittens would put her to Josie Swanson, a complete opposite of Eve. Josie who puts her dreams aside to make a living with the bar she inherited.

But then, opposites are meant to attract. Two ends of a spectrum are meant to collide. And Lady Fate loves to interfere in people’s lives to make it more interesting. Eve and Josie, sure have their work cut out for them as they navigate their fears and insecurities, prioritize their feelings and really reach out for what matters in life.

I fell in love with their courage, sincerity and self respect as they beat down the world to fit themselves!!!!

Rachel Lacey gives her readers an emotional journey as two wonderful people take a journey to a life they never dreamed. 

A stunning read if you ask me!!!

I am so sad to see Katie Rues’s “Endgame Trilogy” come to an end and what a stunning end it is. Any book of hers is a reading pleasure. Ellis Bishop is finally exacting revenge for being framed and getting his life ruined But the act of kidnapping a princess to get to his end game becomes a threat to his heart. 

BishopsEndGame-Endgame#3-KatieRues

Arianna is thrown into danger as the reality of her stepfather’s life puts her in the crosshairs of his evil actions and coming to terms that her kidnapper is actually an honorable man. Ellis and Arianna are a treat to read as they stumble though their attraction along with keeping themselves safe enough to bring down her stepfather. 

And the finale was a very well thought out plot as Katie Reus gives one of her best written romantic suspense.

Reading Donna Grant is like chicken soup for the soul! Whether she writes a twisted tale of the Dragon Kings or a contemporary cowboy romance, it will be a reading pleasure no matter the genre.

ACowboyLikeYou-HeartOfTexas#4-DonnaGrant

And with a cowboy like Danny Oldman, her fourth book in the Heart Of Texas series, is another heart warmer. The Lone Star Sheriff is content being the protector of his citizens, and love for him is far fetched as the girl of his dreams far away. But then fate always plays a hand bringing Skylar Long back to him with her painful present dogging her heals.

Now with their long ago attraction only deepening into love, both have to fight the demons before they can make a future.

“A Cowboy Like You” is another great read from Donna Grant!

The Sutton Capital series by Lori Ryan is one of my all time favorites, that gets a visit from me time and again. 

AccordingToPlan-SuttonCapitalSeries-LoriRyan-Dec2019

Kaeden O’Shea learns very quickly that nothing ever goes “According To Plan” when dealing with Joy Wilson. Spunky, friendly and sassy to the boot, Joy would like to stay away from Kaeden but then the laws of attraction take her straight to him. And Kaeden’s plan of enjoying her company for a short goes through the roof.

Joy’s got secrets to hide, and Kaeden’s got the muscle and patience to support and keep her safe. And the readers get to read another wonderful romance by Lori Ryan.
