Love Notes
Love Notes - Tammy Andresen

Derek is the lead singer of the band, Echo Station. Tattooed and burly, Derek fits the look of the bad boy to a tee, and usually has a short term girlfriend to match. Derek has just had a crazy breakup with now ex-girlfriend Nicole and decides to swear off women for a while. Band mate Drew brings in marketing major, Melissa to watch the band perform and see if she can help them get bigger crowds. Melissa is career focused and has a plan for love and boyfriends. While trying get some promo shots, Melissa instantly notices Derek's presence; however this bad boy is not the Harvard guy she imagined herself with and Derek seems to think she an annoyance. At some point these two realize that love doesn't always look like they think it should. 

The third installment in the Accidental Kisses series does not disappoint. In Love Notes the sweet and sassy romance continues with the friends of characters met in the first two books. This being said, you do not have to read the first two books to understand this one, but it was nice to see the other relationships from the outside. Melissa and Derek are complete opposites. Melissa has life planned out in her head, with a man exactly like her. Derek thinks he can only have girls that fit into his rock lifestyle, but those girls are always caustic. When the two meet, sparks fly, but not in a good way. Like the other books in the series, the point of view alternates between the the two so we get an inside look into Melissa and Derek's thoughts. I enjoyed seeing the uncertainty and leaps of faith as the romance blossomed. I liked that Derek didn't fit his outward stereotype in the end and that both Melissa and Derek both could see that there is more to a person than their outward appearance. An intense and fast-paced sweet romance that I read in one sitting, I can't wait to see who falls in love next.

This book was received for free in return for an honest review.

Good Stories and Characters
In Mood Fur Love - Kate Baxter,Eve Langlais,Milly Taiden

Three hot stories about sexy shifters from a trio of today's hottest paranormal romance authors, headlined by bestselling authors Eve Langlais and Milly Taiden.

This is a shifter anthology by some of the top paranormal authors today. I’ve read stories by each author so I had a pretty good idea of their writing styles. I’m not a huge short-story person, but the authors’ names were what made me want to read this. Each story was decent and for the most part, well-paced. Milly Taiden’s was by far my favorite story. I recommend for anyone that likes these authors or this genre.

**I voluntarily read and reviewed this book

This is Love by Caroline Nolan
This Is Love - Caroline O'Nolan

 ๏ ๏ ๏  Book Blurb ๏ ๏ ๏ 

 
 
Rachel Miller had love, life, and happiness...until she didn't.

Uncertain of how to cope and move on without him, Rachel's life comes to halt as she mourns the loss of her fiance Ben. Then one night she discovers it doesn't have to.

By way of dreams, Rachel and Ben continue to live the life they had planned together. It's unconventional, it's not even real, but it's enough for Rachel. For the first time since Ben's death, she's happy...whole. That is until she runs into someone she barely knew from years ago and suddenly real life is just as great as her dream one.

Now Rachel doesn't know what to do. Will letting someone new in threaten what she has with Ben? Or will their love story threaten her new happiness? Is it crazy to chase after a ghost while being caught up by someone very real?
 
 
 
 
๏ ๏ ๏  My Review ๏ ๏ ๏ 
 
Another win for me in the romance genre...yay...sometimes I feel like I'm losing all my interest in this genre, but books like this one are helping to restore it.

The blurb only tells you about the fiancé who Rachel loses, it only hints at the new man she meets...and he (Jax) is at the center of this story and Jax is one who had a hand in making this story so memorable for me.  This story at its core is about grieving and learning to move on from that grief.  With characters who not only feel real but are also relatable, and a sorrowful but ultimately uplifting storyline to go with them, I wholeheartedly recommend this book.

Love & Gelato
Love & Gelato - Jenna Evans Welch

Sixteen-year-old Lina is spending the summer in Italy only because it was her mother's dying wish that she get to know Howard, a father she's never met. Lina just wants to go home, but once she's given a journal that her mother kept when she lived in Italy all those years ago, she seems to uncover the magical side of the country. But why did her mother write “I made the wrong choice”? Luckily she's not on her own to figure that out - her new (and cute) friend Ren is there with her to help her along the way.

A cute cover for a cute story. I inhaled this book. I loved the writing. Of course I loved the setting! Italy is so rich with history and gorgeous old buildings and art, and the food is the best. I found the characters to be real and believable. I can't even imagine being in Lina's shoes. I can't wait to get my hands on Love & Luck which is about Lina's best friend Addie.
