Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received this book for review from the author. I was not compensated nor was I required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am posting this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255:  "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising". 


Can a man who resents the hand he’s been dealt and a woman who spends her days grateful for every little thing find true love in each other’s arms—or are their differences stronger than both of them? Find out in this funny, sexy, heartfelt romance, and fall in love with Grant and Jules on the sandy shores of Silver Island, home to coffee shops, boat races, and midnight rendezvous.

Even war heroes need a little help sometimes…

After spending years fighting for his country and too damn long learning to navigate life with a prosthetic leg, Grant Silver returns to Silver Island to figure out a future he couldn’t fathom without fatigues and a gun in his hand. He’d almost forgotten how a man could suffocate from the warmth and caring community in which he’d grown up, and if that weren’t bad enough, his buddies’ beautiful and far-too-chipper younger sister won’t stop flitting into his life, trying to sprinkle happy dust everywhere she goes.

As a cancer survivor, Jules Steele knows better than to count on seeing tomorrow. She doesn’t take a single moment for granted, and she isn’t about to let a man who used to be charming and full of life waste the future he’s been blessed with. She’s determined to get through to him, even if it takes a few steamy kisses…

My Thoughts:

Bellamy has some interesting friends.  The author will get you laughing before the first chapter is done.  So, make sure to clear your calendar just to be on the safe side.  You’ll want to get comfortable and not put this down until the last word is read.

Jules wants what she wants in order to make someone happy.  How she goes about it is another laughable moment.  Our author makes the comedic moments seem as if they come so easy to her.  Grant is a man who served his country well.  Ms. Foster does a great job in showing the reader how frustrated he is about the hand he has been dealt.

There is a scene where Jules is at the beach and she seems to have an epiphany about the setting – and I feel the exact same way.  Our author is very smart at using the little things for the reader to connect to.  Even though you may have some tough things going on in your life, family and/or friends may be there to lift you up.

This was a great book on so many levels.  It checks off all the boxes for romance in general.  But then you can include military, disability, rom-com and small town.  If you enjoy the holidays, you’re even given a little bit of that.  And if there was a category for frustrating males, this would be at the very top.  If you’re a fan of the holiday Hallmark movies, this would be a perfect fit.  But maybe keep a tissue close by.

❤️ CAUGHT BY LOVE (Book 3) - Rel Dec 8







Candi Kane PR Presents: Earn Your Extra Credit by Meghan Quinn; #CoverReveal, #ComingSoon, #TBR, #PreOrder


by Meghan Quinn

Release Date: April 15th

Genre: Contemporary Romance


For the first time you will be able to get the ebook and audio version of Earn Your Extra Credit on April 15th. Narrated by Sebastian York and Erin Mallon, get ready to laugh out loud and fall deeper in love with Romeo and Stella. 


"She went home with someone else that night?"

Hearing the disbelief from my best friend's mouth makes the events of my failed date sting that much more. 

I would like to make it known, I have a lot more swagger than what it seems. I don't normally ask a girl out, have her fail to recognize it's a date, and then give me a high five--as if I'm her wingman--and take off with someone else. 

No. Normally I'm the one taking the girl home but with Stella, it's been one failed attempt after another and frankly, I'm done trying. 

But thanks to my best friend getting married in Hawaii right before the school year starts, I'm stuck on a tropical island, watching Stella parade around in what she claims is a bathing suit. 

Unfortunately, that's not the worst of it, just the tip of the iceberg. Because what I think is going to be a relaxing vacation, avoiding the one girl I can't seem to make it work with, has turned into a spectacle of being recruited as Stella's doting fake fiancĂ© so she can save face with an old "friend" from high school. 

Now I'm navigating through purgatory while trying not to get turned on by the way she holds my hand or kisses my jaw. It's all fake, that's what I keep telling myself, even though it feels entirely too real.

Give Me Books Presents: What We Deserve by Lizzie Stanley; #ReleaseBlitz, #NowAvailable, #OutNow, #TBR, #Live

Title: What We Deserve
Series: Wishbone Tattoos #1
Author: Lizzie Stanley
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: March 31, 2021


I’m used to being alone, until she changed everything...

When my ex-wife left, she said the cruelest words she could think of, and I took them to heart.

Now I work at my loveable bastard cousin’s tattoo parlor and keep most people at arm’s length. I have the occasional one night stand to take the edge off, but there can never be anything more than that for me.

I don’t let myself think about how lonely I am. At least I’m not ruining anyone’s life, right?

Then Emily walks into Wishbone Tattoos, asking about the receptionist job. And this shy, smiling, kind-hearted woman is everything I’ve ever wanted.

I can’t help falling for her. But I don’t want to be selfish, or torture myself with small tastes of a life that can never be mine.

But there’s something about Emily I don’t know. Something that will make her the exception to my rule...

She’s battle scarred herself, and running from a dark past which snaps at her heels, but I’m not going to let anyone hurt her ever again, I swear to god.

And maybe, if we’re lucky and we both want it hard enough, the two of us will finally get what we deserve.
