Well worth a read, Meet Cute is a fun, smartly written, sexy tale involving a meet cute between a former #1 fangirl and the grown-up sexy version of a former teen star. As a family tragedy intervenes, and they are brought together once again on a professional and very intimate basis.

The Secret of a Kiss – A Romance Novel Addicts Anonymous Recommended Read

Genre: Sweet Romance

Synopsis:

A lonely stretch of highway, a handsome stranger, and a long-kept secret that could wreck everything.

Linden Adair is a talented makeup artist on the New York Broadway show, Phantom of the Opera, creating the hideous scar for the actor who plays the phantom every night. But nobody knows the deep scars Linden carries after the divorce from her husband, Mark Denly—who is the famous director of Phantom.

Desperate to get away, Linden takes a cross-country trip to visit her best friend in Seattle. While driving on a deserted stretch of highway late at night, she hits a deer and crashes the rental car into a gully outside of Snow Valley, Montana.

A devastatingly handsome stranger with a tow truck rescues Linden and her smashed vehicle, but when she catches sight of him in the light, she’s shocked. Anton Baldwin possesses a terrible scar on his face—just like the phantom she created every night at the theater.

But Anton is hiding more than the truth behind his scar, and during a whirlwind week while being recruited for a television show being filmed in Snow Valley, the secrets of this enigmatic man turn her world upside down. Does he hold the magic she needs to heal the scars on her broken heart?

If you like sweet romance and second chance love stories, then you’ll love THE SECRET OF A KISS, A Snow Valley Romance.

My Thoughts : 

This is a highly engaging big city to small town sweet romance. I was drawn to this book because I am a big Broadway fan, and the heroine does the makeup for The Phantom of the Opera. I enjoyed this book immensely and especially liked the attraction and sensual tension between the two romantic leads. It’s been my experience that sweet romance books can be a little too sweet for my tastes, but that was not the case with this book. This book most certainly qualifies as a clean romance, but it did a nice job of developing the attraction and the love between the main characters. I found this to be a quick and enjoyable romantic read.

Her mama’s antics garner enough attention in their small Southern town for the both of them, but when Rayne catches the eye of all-star quarterback, Preston Howard, she’s enamored with the possibilities. Too bad Preston doesn’t make her heart thump—his brother does.

Gage Howard doesn’t mind the town’s stares because he doesn’t get them. Growing up in his older brother’s shadow, Gage shrugs off the endless parade of girls Preston brings home—until Rayne.

But there are unwritten rules that shouldn’t be broken, like cheating on your boyfriend or betraying your brother. Rayne and Gage deny their growing attraction, neither willing to hurt Preston—until the town finds out.

They think overcoming the gossip will be the hardest obstacle.

They’re wrong.

Rayne’s mama has a secret, and its revelation could divide the town, the families, and the new couple.

Can love endure if it’s all built on a lie?

A Kiss in the Shadows – Romance Novel Addicts Anonymous Book Review

RNAA Rose Rating – Four Roses

Title: A Kiss in the Shadows

Author: Eve Kincaid

Genre: Romantic Suspense/ Thriller

Synopsis: 

A woman afraid to trust…
Erin Grady will do anything to bring a mental health clinic to Lost Coast Harbor, even if it means accepting money from the local police chief—the father who abandoned her. She’s willing to overlook where the money came from, until a determined and very sexy prosecutor literally crashes into her life…

A man tempted by desire…
Will Patton is desperate to leave the small town of Lost Coast Harbor and rebuild his struggling legal career. To do that, he must expose the dirty police chief—but he never expected to be so drawn to the man’s irresistible daughter. 

A town full of corruption… 
The darkness in Lost Coast Harbor runs deep and wide—and exposing the truth will require Erin and Will to reveal their hearts…no matter the risk.

What I Loved About this Book:

This book works well as a page-turning thriller with some surprises thrown in. The heroine, Erin, is strong and independent, which is always a plus for me. She has a good heart, as her main goal in life is to open a clinic for the mentally ill in her small town. The romance is both sweet and steamy, which is my favorite kind of romance. The hero, Will, is strong and protective but not an alphahole, which I liked.

What Could Have Been Better:

This book was heavy on the thriller plot, and relatively light on the romance overall. The couple spent a fair amount of time in the book apart. MINOR SPOILER. There was a point toward the very end where the main crisis had passed where the hero just abruptly stopped talking to the heroine for no apparent reason. I guess it was supposed to be for dramatic tension purposes, but it really didn’t make any sense to me.

Sexual Content: Yes.

Overall: 

A good, fast-paced thriller with sweet, steamy romance.

Wanderer: The Moncrief Legends by Carol Sabel Blodgett – Romance Novel Addicts Anonymous Book Review

RNAA Rating – Five Roses

   

Title: Wanderer: The Moncrief Legends

Author: Carol Sabel Blodgett

Genre: Romantic Suspense/Thriller/ Paranormal

Synopsis: 

Beyond the wall of computers, all the books rested. Perhaps I belonged to every one of them. Fiction: Immortals aren’t real. Romance: I had a lovely wife who I adored. Horror: She died, in my bed, with my best friend. Mythology: I wish all of this was a myth. There she was. Curled up in an overstuffed chair. Like a child, I darted between the rows of books. She would give the occasional smile as she read. We stayed like this for some time—her reading, me watching. This was exciting. A new person. She was beautiful. That was three days ago. I’ve been reduced to watching her from afar, from this secluded spot across the street from her house. I’m Seth. I was named after Adam and Eve’s third child. It’s been centuries since I’ve been with a woman. Immortality can be a nuisance like that. The time, where does it go? I must make her mine. Some would say that I stalk. I don’t see it that way at all.

What I Loved About this Book: 

This is an expertly-crafted supernatural thriller/suspense novel that will keep you guessing until the very last page. The book features well-drawn characters that are unusual yet relatable and are easy to root for. Lots of terrific twists and turns, and room for plenty more in the series. Don’t miss this one!

What Could Have Been Better:

This book was a bit darker than what I usually read, but that’s not really a criticism of the book. It’s more of a personal preference. 

Sexual Content: Yes. 

Overall: An intense, romantic, intriguing read.

Penalty by Jacob Chance – Romance Novel Addicts Anonymous Book Review

RNAA Rating – Three Roses

 

Title: Penalty

Author: Jacob Chance

Genre:  Contemporary/Sports Romance

Synopsis:

He’s the bad boy quarterback of Boston University’s football team. As the son of a former NFL player, he’s showered with attention and praise twenty-four-seven. One flash of his smile and all the girls fall at his feet – or should I say to their knees? 
And then there’s me.

Brady Lincoln is the last person I want attention from. He’s the kind of guy my father warned me about. His play on the field is legendary and his play with the ladies, even more so. I’ve managed to stay off his radar until recently. 

What happens when the cocky quarterback breaks all the rules to win my heart? 

What I Loved About this Book: 

The main characters, Harlow and Brady, had great chemistry. I do enjoy a good sports romance, and this one was well written. There was an interesting twist toward the end that I didn’t see coming, and it’s always nice to be surprised.

What Could Have Been Better: 

I would have liked to see a bit more character development, though, as the leads had a lot of the usual characteristics you find in romance novels. Mainly, it was the bad boy who gets around and the innocent, good girl.

Sexual Content: Yes, explicit.

Overall: This was a sexy, entertaining read.

New Release – Biker Romance – Goldie by Chiah Wilder

Goldie, Road Captain of the Night Rebels MC, loves women and women love him. He’s a simple man who only needs his Harley, whiskey, and women—in that order—in his life to make it hum. Being an officer of an outlaw motorcycle club, the women are more than willing to accommodate the blond, ripped, and tatted biker. His rule is simple: pleasure without commitment. It’s served him well until one night when she walked into the club’s tattoo shop wanting an ink job on her sexy bottom.

For reasons he doesn’t understand, he’s drawn to her.
He wants to get to know her.

Then he finds out her name is Hailey Shilley. He hasn’t seen her since she moved away from Alina eleven years ago.

She’s off limits.
She’s his best friend’s little sister.
He has to forget about her.

Problem is he can’t get her or her sweet tattoo out of his mind.

Hailey Shilley left Alina when she’d first started high school. She’s back to help her aunt run her floral shop. When she stumbles into the tattoo parlor with her two friends, she doesn’t expect to find the most gorgeous guy she’s ever laid eyes on. His ripped body, strong jaw, and to-die-for tats make her tingle all over. She can’t get him out of her mind.

When she finds out he’s her brother’s best friend, she can’t believe what a hunk he grew up to be. But her brother warned her about him. Told her he’s an outlaw biker and a player. She always had a crush on him, but now that they’re both grown up, she isn’t sure she wants to risk her heart to him.

While Hailey tries to put aside her fears and Goldie his loyalty to his buddy, women are being terrorized and female bodies are turning up all around the county. A madman is loose and he’s closing in on the women Goldie holds dear to him. Can he be stopped in time?

This is the fourth book in the Night Rebels MC Romance series. This is Goldie’s story. It is a standalone. This book contains violence, sexual assault (not graphic), strong language, and steamy/graphic sexual scenes. It describes the life and actions of an outlaw motorcycle club. If any of these issues offend you, please do not read the book. HEA. No cliffhangers! The book is intended for readers over the age of 18.

The book is available on AMAZON and KINDLE UNLIMITED.

Hard for My Boss by Daryl Banner – Romance Novel Addicts Anonymous Book Review

RNAA Rating – Five Roses

   

Title: Hard for My Boss

Author: Daryl Banner

Genre: M/M romance

Synopsis: Trevor, the young summer intern, is totally SCREWED.
Working at Gage Communications is an opportunity of a lifetime.
But will Trevor be able to handle it? Or will he succumb to the tension?
The tension is in his pants, by the way.
Between a heavy workload and a hunky, controlling boss, Trevor’s summer just got a lot hotter and harder than he bargained for.

What I Loved About this Book: 

I admit am not a big fan of the alphahole trope. I know lots of romance readers love it, but to me being cocky and rude is just not sexy. In this book, Ben was bigger, stronger, and more powerful than Trevor, and I loved, loved, LOVED that Trevor did NOT bow to his will. At least not at first. This was a terrific read through and through. It had a HEA, but was pretty unpredictable which was a pleasant surprise. There were some cool twists with both characters and plot, which made this a truly page-turningly good read. 

What Could Have Been Better: 

A minor formatting quibble, but there is an extra space in between each paragraph. It’s technically not proper formatting and I find it distracting to read. Normally, this is an automatic no for me on the book, but I’ve read another book from this author (that was properly formatted) so I gave this one a chance. I’m glad I did. 

Sexual Content: Yes. Explicit.

Overall: A terrific read from beginning to end. Character is really a strong point in this one. Highly recommended.
