What a wonderful book 10 stars for me.

This is by far the funniest Aspen Cove book for me.  The one-liners had me LOL so much.

"Go home Violet.  You don't ride a bull before you've ridden a horse."

To see why a laugh out loud you will have to read this wonderful book to get the true meaning of that sentence.

How Kelly Collins keeps giving us all these great and loving characters in this one little town is beyond me her imagination and story ability keeps me reading and wanting more.

He is a cowboy in limbo doing the job of a cattle hand but wanting so much more.

She has the ability to do her job in a man's world but has been thrown to the curve.

Trinity Mosier is known for trouble by her brother but its trouble that has always found her no the other way around.  So when she needs help she turn...

A nice short novella about new beginnings and hope for a better life. I was drawn to the book cover some time ago and was very happy to find the story within just as appealing. This is my first read by Lucy Appadoo and I look forward to reading more very soon.

Set in Australia in 1965 when Valeria Allegro was shipped off to a new country by her parents to marry a man she had never meet. Roberto Morandi lived in Melbourne with his sister and her husband to which he would live with his new wife.

Valeria had thought she had escaped the meanness of her father in Italy but her new life was becoming more dangerous than the past. The neighbour and friend to Roberto was no what he seemed to all.

How can she face her life as a wife in a new country with a man she does not know and one that does not tr...

I really liked this sweet read that was so much more than just a romance story, it was about friendship and family just as much as love.  The characters draw me straight in and had me right to the very end while still wanting more at the end.

What happen when best friends realise they feel more than they should?

Will taking the chance to change their friendship be enough to make them want more?

Rory and Jess best friends since childhood, neighbours start the slow burn from friends to lovers in this wonderful romance, that is full of other great characters as well.  Lissanne Jones has given us a wonderful journey into the lives of her characters that you will soon feel connected with them all.

Undeniable friendship is the best part of life and if they are also your partner you are set for the u...

How I love Adriana Locke's writing, I devoured this book in one day I was hooked from the start and could not put it down.  My husband did not get a look at all day.  Trouble was not just the title of the book it was what I was in as well.

The author knows how to write her leading man with so much depth, sexiness show through the pages of this book.  The banter between all the character was wonderful and have a real family/small-town closeness that made you feel a part of the story at times.  This is book three of this series and for most of us that have read them is the one we have been waiting for the most. Penn!!!!

Penn is so swoon-worthy and fun-loving and, Avery is determined and hilarious they are so perfect for each other you can not help but fall in love with them both. Pen...

This is the debut novel for this author Heather Reyburn, I must say she has done very well as she has covered some great topics facing life for women in the Australian outback.

The characters were interesting and the plot had you wanting more. Grace was a strong character that you could not help to care about and wish her well. I loved the connection she had with Tom. The story told the true hardships of some woman that choices to live in the outback the isolation and hard life on the land. This was all shown in the author's words as we get to share the journey of Grace to reconnect with her marriage in the Queensland outback station fo Tullagulla.

There are many characters we meet along the way that sounds like they also have a great story's to tell and I hope that this being book one of th...

This was my first read by Nina Levine, I started it and couldn't put it down. I am hooked, I think I have found my current genre for the month. MC is a genre I have not read in a long time and I am pleased to have found this author, as she had a huge backlist for me to explore.

What I love about MC books, the language is expressive (I like), the men are hot and dangerous, the bikes are loud and the sex is spicy. Mix in a bit of I never want to see my ex again and you have a totally entertaining read.

Madison Cole has grown up in the bikers world with her father being the President of the Storm Motorcycle club. But this is a world she has not been involved in for the last two years a world she had made better for herself and never plans to return to.

"For six years I fought every day not to think of you, and I lost because every day you were all I could see."

"Every piece of me is in here... My breath, my heart, my life. I won't ever leave you if you keep that safe in...

It was wonderful to read a new book by Anne Stone again, I was looking forward to reading this book. I did struggle with parts of this book during my read but was hooked to the very last word. I believe my struggle was with Ashley herself as at many time I could not connect with her character and her decisions she was making. I also felt that some parts of the story we're given to much attention and other not enough, the follow was a bit up and down while I was reading it. But this is just my thoughts and every reader is different.

Morgan and Tony where two characters that I enjoyed to get to know throughout the book. They had a wonderful friendship with each other. This book is not a quick read as its full of suspense, drama, sadness, tennis and LOVE...

There will be many twists and turn a...

Maisey Yates guttered me, made me late for work, shattered my little heart, gave me joy, made me cry all while I rode the journey as wild as any rollercoaster. You will love this book as the main male character Caleb is the ultimate cowboy with the biggest heart, a heart that has been broken for some time. A heart that has been hiding it's true feeling for even longer.

I have not had the pleasure of reading Maisey Yates books before so I have not read any of the other books in this series so I was unaware of any of the characters and events before starting me read. So I would recommend this book even as a stand-alone read. But now that I have read this book I would love to go back and read more as I really enjoyed the writer's style even though at the time I wished there was a bit...
