Synopsis:

Lady Willow Arlington, hauntingly lovely, is also blind and known by the ton as the dowry-less daughter. Alasdair Morley, the Marquess of Westcliffe, is in need of an heiress, but Lady Willow should be the last person he craves after she was persuaded to reject his offer of marriage when he was a mere third son. Passion reignites between them, and he makes an enticing offer she cannot resist, drawing them into a dance of lust and love despite the misgivings in his heart.

Review:

I will be your anchor when you falter…always.

The Marquess and I was a delightful, sexy tale.  I was looking for a book that I could read in one sitting on KU, and this was exactly what I was looking for!  It was amazing how quickly I connected and adored these characters.  If you love second chance and historical romance, then this is the book for you!

Hardly worth remembering? She had dreamed of him at the crest of each dawn and nightfall for years. Memories of past kisses, shared dreams, and nightmares rushed through her, causing her heart to tremble in both fear and joy.

Alasdair Hugh Morley, the Marquess of Westcliffe and Lady Willow Rosalind Arlington, the daughter of the Duke and Duchess of Milton, cared deeply for one another in their younger years.  And while Alasdair wanted them to marry, Willow’s parents would not allow that since he was a third son.  She was to be wed to another.  Six years later, after drastic events to the both of them, they’re near each other again with instant sparks and attraction.  But Alasdair is need of a wife with a substantial dowry and Willow has none.

I missed you. Yet the words would not come.

I loved Willow and Alasdair!  Alasdair was kind, sexy, but his heart still hurt because of Willow’s rejection years ago.  He had plans of ruining her, to help get her out of his system.  But when he discovers that Willow is now blind, from an accident in the past, that pulls at his heartstrings. And Willow?!  You guys, I loved her!  She was brave and strong, but she also sees herself as a burden to others.  They both had so much to learn and grow, with themselves and each other, and the moment they came together again everything changes.

I desire you to touch me, to kiss me, because I crave something more in my life.

This was a beautiful and quick story about two souls who were destined to be together.  I loved seeing that they still cared and trusted one another so deeply.  And I loved watching their story unfold, especially their moment by the lake *fans face*.  Their times together were seductive and sensual and I could have easily stayed with these characters longer.  I highlighted close to half this book, that’s how much I enjoyed this story lol. Now I can’t wait to devour the rest of the books in this series!

Synopsis:

After Evan's relationship fail during Christmas vacation, he heads back to college with a new plan. It's time for a break from dating. He doesn't want to quit the game completely though. Garland, his funny, lovable, down-to-earth roommate, is constantly talking to girls. And never asking them out.

Evan might be on a romantic hiatus but that doesn't mean he can't help his best friend find love. So, when Evan meets Abby in student government class, he trades in his player card for Cupid's bow. She and Garland would be perfect together and it doesn't take a rocket scientist to know they'll never hook up without help.

His matchmaking scheme works brilliantly. A little too brilliantly. By the time Garland and Abby start hitting it off, Evan has grown quite fond of her. That's the problem with playing Cupid. If you're not careful, you run the risk of getting shot by your own arrow.

Review:

The Problem With Cupid was so cute and I couldn’t stop smiling.  If you’re looking for a quick read and enjoy NA Romance that’s sweet and adorable, then you’ll want to add this one to your tbr!

The first rule of being just friends with a girl is that you can’t kiss her. No matter how tempting it is. Especially when you’re trying to hook her up with your roommate.

I read The Trouble With Christmas and absolutely cherished that story.  Evan was the brother’s best friend in that book, but confession time….I didn’t like him.  I had my eye on someone else for the heroine, so my thoughts weren’t kind to Evan, ack.  But I enjoyed The Trouble With Christmas so much that I wanted to give Evan’s story a shot.  I’m so glad I did because not only did I enjoy this book, but I fell hard for Evan too!

“Get back here, you coward!” she yelled.
“No way!” I yelled back. “I don’t trust you not to maim me.” I grinned wickedly at her but slowed to a stop.
When she caught up, she slugged me in the arm. “That’s for being a brat.”
I pulled her into a hug.

Having to sign up for a club, sport, or student association, Evan signed up for student government representatives in college.  And on his first day he met shy, bookworm Abby.  While Evan was outgoing, confident and cocky, Abby was quiet and seemed to try and blend in.  Right away Evan started joking around with Abby and it was impossible not to smile at their antics.  Because while Evan could tease her ruthlessly, Abby could give it right back.  So I laughed out loud and couldn’t stop smiling with all the attention Evan directed at Abby.

I honestly felt guilty for ruining his date. I tried really hard to feel bad about it, too. But I couldn’t.

We got the whole story in Evan’s head, which I loved, and he thought Abby would be perfect for his roommate, Garland.  They were both quirky with different senses of humor.  So Evan tried to make sure him that they hung out with Abby and her roommate.  The moments that the four of them were together was entertaining!  But for wanting to setup his friend with Abby, he surrrrrrre had a difficult time not flirting with her lol.  And the more time he spent around Abby, the more he liked her.  What’s a guy to do?!

Some cupid I was. I’d shot myself with my own arrow.

The Problem With Cupid was a delightful story set around Valentine’s Day and I loved every minute of this novella.  Now I can’t wait to read Garland’ story next around the fourth of July wheeee!

Synopsis:

Amy Winstead is a twenty something video producer who loves Christmas more than anyone she’s ever known. This year, the holidays are gonna be a lot less happy because she can’t afford the plane ticket home to celebrate with her family, and her best and oldest friend Josh is moving halfway across the country for a new job that he couldn’t turn down.

When Josh asks her to accompany him on his road trip from Texas to Connecticut and offers to pay for her plane ticket back home, how could Amy say no? He’s promised some fun surprises on the trip, and more time with him could never be a bad thing.

One surprise Josh hasn’t planned on is the record-breaking blizzard heading their way. They decide to wait out the storm in the charming town of Holly Hill, where a little holiday magic and a lot of snow combine to help Josh and Amy realize that the something that’s always simmered between them could easily become something more...

Review:

Let it Snow was a feel good, heartwarming Christmas story.  With a road trip, snow storm and a cute little town, this book was so enjoyable.  If you’re looking for a friend to lovers Christmas story, with a little bit of sexy mixed in, then take a look at adding this one to your tbr.

If I didn’t know any better, I could swear that Josh wants to kiss me. But I need to get foolish thoughts like that out of my head, so I turn back to my laptop.

Amy Winstead, aka Ames, and Josh Abbott had been inseparable for the last 26 years.  They were the bestest of friends who grew up together, went to same college and even got their first jobs in the same town.  But with Josh moving back home to New York and Ames staying in Texas, she was emotionally struggling.  They’d never been apart.  On top of that, she was head over heels in love with her best friend.

“You’re woven into the fabric of my life.”

While Ames was unsure of where she wanted to go with her life, Josh seemed to know exactly what he wanted.  When he surprised her with a road trip back home for the holidays, and a plane ticket to get her back to Texas, I was overjoyed.  I love road trips!  We got to see how strong their friendship was and how well they knew each other.  I loved watching how affectionate and thoughtful they were to each other.  And when they got stranded in a blizzard, things started to storm in the best of ways between the two of them.

“What do you need?” I ask, confused by the giant shift in the room, of this overwhelming sense of possibility in the moment.
He lifts his head, eyes half lidded.
“To kiss you,” he replies.

Let it Snow was a delightful book that was so easy to devour.  And for those that love happily ever afters, that last chapter is for you.  The story jumped ahead four years and I loved seeing how the future panned out.  So with snow women building, snow ball fights and getting stranded in a hotel room with one bed, it was fun watching Ames and Josh’s relationship develop.  If you’re a fan of friends to lovers, with Christmas sprinkled in the pages, then this book may be just for you!
