Conflicted
Red, White & Royal Blue - Casey McQuiston

I'm going to make this short.

 

Love:

Okay Alex and Henry are adorable and I totally love them. They go back and forth just like me and the hubs.

 

Hate:

The story just. Keeps. Going. Ffs it could have been wrapped up neatly well before it was. And the whole Richardson background story was way too cliche and easy to figure out. Because the book dragged on forever, I started to lose interest. 

 

So, a good book but a bit slow and dull.

Blog Tour w/Review - Trouble

 

Today we have the blog tour for Gabrielle G’s Trouble! Check it out and be sure to grab your copy today!

 

 

Title: Trouble

Author: Gabrielle G

Genre: Contemporary Romance

 

About Trouble:

 

 

There are three things I have to protect: My heart, my scars and my life. Even from my best friend.

 

Some secrets have the power to change lives.

Or ruin them.

What I didn’t expect was for my best friend to walk away when I needed him most.

I made the only decision I could.

And I have no regrets–even if Lars Trouble can’t handle that.

Now I just have to convince my broken heart it’s better off without him.

 

 

 

***

 

 

I don’t do secrets, I hate deceivers and I’m not in love with my best friend.

 

Or so I thought.

As the man in the shadows, the drummer of the Darling Devils, the person I rely on most is my best friend.

That is until I discover Naomi is a liar.

If walking away from her was hard, learning she isn’t mine to love feels impossible.

And just when I think it’s all finally coming back together, fate steps in and proves me wrong.

But when you love someone, you do the only thing you can. You fight for your love story to begin.

 

A friends-to-lovers romance to the beat of the Darling Devils – the legends of music.

 

This novel contains chapters with difficult scenes that might trigger some readers. Please reach out to me for specific details.

Trouble (Darling Devils, #2)Trouble by Gabrielle G.
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This book can be read as a standalone novel. To avoid spoilers, and to fully understand the series, I recommend reading the series in order.

Naomi and Lars have history. Serious chemistry of heat and sexy history. Only the choice for her was about friendship. Since she could have gotten serious about a man who uses her looks as a type. She instead, chose to be his friend, the best of friends.

Lars is all in with his best friend. Until the worst happens. Then they split apart, and that is it. Being in the limelight, having someone to care about who he really is was a real treat. Now, she looks at him with such shame and disgust. Can this be fixed?

I love the friends to lovers trope, I have been pretty vocal about that. I just really did not feel the connection with this story and its MC's. I tried at separate times. I found the story solid, the pace nice and fast, and the chemistry just was not working for me. All around it is still worth the read. Lots of our favorites make an appearance, and I am still eager to read the next installment in the series. The book is still a good read.

About Gabrielle G:

 

Gabrielle G will do anything for a hot cup of tea, still celebrates her half birthdays and feels everyone has an inner temptuous voice. Born in France and having lived in Switzerland, Gabrielle currently resides in Montreal with her husband, three devilish children and an extremely moody cat. After spending years contemplating a career in writing, she finally jumped off the deep end and took the plunge into the literary world. Writing consumed her and she independently published her work. Gabrielle's style is fiercely raw and driven by pure emotion. Her love stories leave you out of breath, yearning for more, while at the same time wiping away tears.

Blog Tour w/Review - Lessons In Leomade
 
 
Title: Lessons in Lemonade
Series: Starving for Southern Series
Author: Kathryn Andrews
Genre: Contemporary/Sports Romance
Release Date: April 28, 2020
 
 
 
Meg Dukette
When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade.
 
I believe in living my best life, and if surviving cancer taught me anything, it’s exactly that. I wake every day in the most beautiful city in the South, I’m a chef at my own restaurant, and everything is just the way I want it: easy, calm, and in perfect harmony—that is, until my best friend shows up with his wounded heart, smoldering gaze, and adorable dimples. Now, things are changing—we are changing—but with the promises I’ve made to myself, I don’t want them to. After everything I’ve been through, breaking them now seems unthinkable, but the alternative might be a lesson my heart’s not prepared to learn.
 
Jack Willett
Just when you think life is the best it’s ever been, fate has a way of intercepting. 
 
I’ve spent ten years playing in the NFL, and with one wrong hit, my world comes crashing down. Now, I’m at the crossroads of what might become my past and a very different future. What I need is time and my best friend. Her gorgeous smiles, sexy legs, and optimistic outlook on life make the world brighter, better, and I’ve quickly found myself craving her more and more. She says we’re just friends, says that’s all we’ll ever be, but actions speak louder than words. It’s time to change the game, and I’m ready to pass the ball. I just hope she’ll be on the other end to catch it.
 
He’s her best friend. 
She’s quickly turned into something more. 
 
Will making a play for her heart be more bitter than sweet? Or will it add just the right amount of zest to make the most delicious ending of all . . .
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Lessons in Lemonade (Starving for Southern, #3)Lessons in Lemonade by Kathryn Andrews
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book #3, in the Starving For Southern series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader enjoyment and to fully understand the series, I recommend reading this great series in order.

Jack has been in the NFL the last 10 years. He has had an incredible team and made good friends. When the worst happens, he turns to whom he needs the most. His best friend, Meg.

Meg has never wanted forever. She makes it clear to all who know her that its just easier to be the person living her best life. She has great talent, good friends, and is doing what she can to just be healthy and live everyday.

This was such a great and heartwarming story. Right from the first page I felt totally sucked into the story and could not put it down! I loved these characters already from the series, and this was an installment that felt like icing on the cake. (Or pie.) Being able to read about their journey was totally a gift.
