About the Book:

Betsy: A Sweet Romantic Comedy (Sewing in SoCal Book 5) by [Sarah  Monzon]

Title: Betsy
Series: Sewing in SoCal #5
Author: Sarah Monzon
Release Date: June 13th, 2022
Genre: Rom-com

Rule #1. Never fall for a musician
Rule #2. There are no exceptions to rule #1

As a professional sound engineer, I’m around musicians every day, so I know what I’m talking about when I say they aren’t boyfriend material. They’re only looking out for number one, and that ain’t you, honey. Give them a map with destination Not on Your Life, Mister highlighted, underlined, and circled for good measure.

That being said, what am I supposed to do with Asher North, lead singer of the band True North and my new boss? My glares don’t intimidate him, and my sarcasm only seems to draw him closer instead of pushing him away. The longer we’re on tour together, the less my rules make sense. And the more he looks at me the way he does, as if he can see right through the wall I’ve so diligently constructed, the more I want to throw those rules right out the window.

Book Review:

The end of the Sewing in SoCal series! This was such a fun series. I loved seeing Betsy’s happily ever after. It was so cute to watch her find her match, and I loved seeing the reasons behind some of her hostility. And we got to see all the rest of the gang again too!

Betsy is not a fan of musicians. And she is determined to never become one or date one, but when Asher North, a Christian artist, works with her, he starts proving her wrong on every turn. He’s kind, humble, and honestly trying to follow God. But will she be able to put aside her prejudice and actually trust him?

Betsy was super sarcastic and kinda harsh in all the books, but she had such a big heart. She genuinely loves her friends and her families, and I love how Asher saw that side of her right away. It was sweet to see how he liked all of her though, her snarky comments and her big heart. And the big reveal of why Betsy doesn’t like musicians was quite satisfying. It felt really fresh and different in a way that fit her personality.

Asher was a sweetheart! He was such a good guy, and he really was trying to love God and love people. While I thought it was sweet how he tried to balance showing interest in Betsy and pursuing her without pushing himself on her , I think he was a bit too pushy sometimes. 

The plot itself was fun! It is a bit rushed, but I felt like it fit the rom com vibe. But I would have loved to have more conversations with the two of them. This is a clean romance with some innuendo. I would recommend it to anyone who likes rom coms!

Genre: Contemporary Christian Romance

Her fairytale ending turns into a disaster. Can her brother’s best friend convince her that she was chasing the wrong happily ever after?

Everly Cooper had it all. A successful fiancé, a dream home being built, and the life she always wanted away from the spotlight.

And then it all crashed and burned… publicly, and her brother’s best friend, Blake, was all too eager to race to her rescue.

Blake Lawson left the world of professional football for the small town life five years ago. His friend, Ridge, needed help, and being closer to Everly was more than just a bonus. He’d been silently in love with his best friend’s sister for years. He had everything he could possibly want, except her.

When Blake’s plan to win her heart backfires, he’ll have to figure out what loving someone really means before he loses Everly forever.

Almost Everything is the second book in the Christian romance Wolf Creek Ranch series.

Book Review:

This was just a sweet book! I enjoy reading Mandi Blake’s books because they always shine Christ throughout the book and they have happily ever afters. Almost Everything was another wonderful book! I was excited to see how this book would turn out and it was really good!

Everly was such a sweet character, she was really thoughtful and kind. I liked Everly from the beginning and I felt so bad for her as she tried to pick up the pieces of her life. She had everything until it all crashed and burned. I loved how strong Everly was and how she tried to lean on God even when her life felt crazy. However Everly also had to learn how to stand up for herself and how to rest in God’s plan.

Blake was a fun character. He had loved Everly for a long time but he stayed away because she was engaged. However now she was single but she was also reeling from her break up. I liked how honorable Blake was and how he respected Everly. He didn’t try to push his feelings on her. It was cute to read about him interacting with Everly and seeing how much he liked her. He really cared for and he wanted her to be happy. Blake would have to learn how to listen to Everly and not just try to fix things for her. 

Blake and Everly were fun to read about together. They had an easy chemistry especially because they had a lot of history together. Blake was Everly’s brother’s best friend and he was also her friend. I liked the easy interactions. It was interesting to read about them falling in love and working through their struggles. They had a lot of hurdles to jump over. 

I really liked the side characters and I spotted at least two different books in the making! I liked Everly’s brother, Ridge, and I am super excited for him to get his own book. It looks like there is going to be quite a story. 

Almost Everything was a lovely read and I would totally recommend it! The characters are sweet and I love how faith is woven so seamlessly into the story. Almost Everything is a clean Christian contemporary romance.

An Unlikely Alliance

About the Book:

An Unlikely Alliance: An Uplifting Inspirational Romance (K-9 Companions Book 7) by [Toni Shiloh]

Title: An Unlikely Alliance
Series: K-9 Companions #7
Author: Toni Shiloh
Publisher: Love Inspired
Release Date: June 28th, 2022
Genre: Christian Contemporary Romance

To save her animal shelter,
She’ll have to work with her biggest foe…

With her emotional support dog at her side, Jalissa Tucker will do whatever it takes to ensure the survival of the local animal rescue—even ally herself with her nemesis, firefighter Jeremy Rider. As working together dredges up old hurts, putting the past aside could be the key to their future joy. But can Jalissa resist falling for the man she’s always considered the enemy?

From Love Inspired: Uplifting stories of faith, forgiveness and hope.

Book Review:

This was a great read! It took me a bit to read it, but once I really took the time to start it I really enjoyed it. An Unlikely Alliance is written by Toni Shiloh. This book is standalone but it does have some old characters from An Unlikely Proposal. I always love Toni Shiloh’s books so I was super excited to read this one!

Jalissa was kind of hard for me to get at first. She was a bit abrupt and generally saw things only one way, but I grew to like her as I got to know her better. Jalissa was stubborn but she was also kind, she really cared for the animals at the shelter and she would do anything for them. I also liked learning about Jalissa’s anxiety and how it did not define her as a character, but how it did not shy away from it. Jalissa was rough around the edges because of her past, but she learned to trust God and what it meant to forgive. 

I thought that Rider was the sweetest! He worked hard to care for those around him and he had a heart for kids who had experienced bullying. Rider was kind and he worked hard, I liked how he tried to understand Jalissa and be open. His past made him wary of her but he was willing to put it aside to help the kids who had experienced bullying at SAFE. 

Jalissa and Rider had a rough start, they did not like each other at all. However they were willing to put aside their differences to save the animal shelter and SAFE. It was fun to read about them interacting and seeing them fall in love. They were enemies to lovers, and were drawn together by the same cause. The storyline was interesting and I was interested to see how Jalissa and Rider were going to be able to raise money in order to save the animal shelter and SAFE. 

An Unlikely Alliance was an enjoyable read! It was fun to see old characters too! I liked how Shiloh was able to weave faith and forgiveness so seamlessly into the book. I would definitely recommend this book! An Unlikely Alliance is a clean Christian contemporary romance.

Ensnared

About the Book:

Ensnared (Knights of Brethren Book 3) by [Jody Hedlund]

Title: Ensnared
Series: Knights of Brethren #3
Author: Jody Hedlund
Publisher: Northern Lights Press
Release Date: June 14th, 2022
Genre: YA Historical Romance

During a time when legends were born . . .

ENSNARED

A poor maidservant struggling to survive, a brave knight who secretly loves her, and a chalice that has the power to unite them.

Nursemaid to the Earl of Likness’s two young daughters, Mikaela despises the earl for his cruelty to his subjects, and she longs for the day when she can make a difference in the lives of her suffering friends and family.

As one of the Knights of Brethren, Gunnar is on a mission to find the sacred chalice for the queen, convinced it’s the cure for her deadly bleeding disease. His quest takes him home, and he soon learns his brother, the earl, may know more about the chalice than he lets on.

As Gunnar reunites with Mikaela, the maiden he’s always loved, he tries to keep his feelings for her a secret, desperate to protect her from his brother. But as they venture into the perilous Hardanger Forest and battle to survive, will Gunnar realize her love is worth fighting for?

Book Review:

I have a book hangover; this was just so good! This book did not disappoint! Ensnared is the third book in Jody Hedlund’s Knights of Brethren series. I have been eagerly awaiting this one and it was of course wonderful! Ensnared follows Gunnar as he searches for the holy grail. His journey will take him home, home to the only woman who has ever held his heart, Mikaela.

I really liked the characters in this book. Both Mikaela and Gunnar endeared themselves to me from the beginning. Mikaela was such a strong female character and yet she knew when she had to be silent. She was a servant to an evil man, but she tried to stay true to herself and protect her family. Mikaela had to learn to trust God and Gunnar even when things felt crazy. She had to fight for what she believed in and hope for a better future. 

Gunnar was another awesome character; I loved reading about his development and growth. He had always tried to hide from his brother, slipping under the radar. But when he came home again, he knew that he would have to stand up for himself especially if he wanted to protect the woman that he loved. Gunnar had to fight for what’s right even if it meant going against his brother. He had to learn that sometimes taking the first step of faith is the hardest especially when it means going against your family.

Gunnar and Mikaela were cute together. They had history, but it was also soured by deceit. They had to learn to trust each other again and how to fight for their love. Gunnar and Mikaela also had to figure out how to keep their friends and family safe from the evil overlord. Will they be able to come together and save not only each other but also Mikaela’s family?

I really enjoyed the plot and I was engaged throughout the whole story. The characters were great and I am super excited for the next book. I was on the edge of my seat, waiting to see how Gunnar and Mikaela were going to end up together. They were facing so many odds. All in all, this book was amazing.

I loved, loved, loved Ensnared and I would totally recommend it! It was a wonderful addition to the series. It could be read standalone, but I think that it is best read in the series. Ensnared is a medieval YA book inspired by the stories of King Arther and his knights.

In Honor’s Defense

About the Book:

In Honor's Defense (Hanger's Horsemen Book #3) by [Karen Witemeyer]

Title: In Honor’s Defense
Series: Hanger’s Horseman #3
Author: Karen Witemeyer
Publisher: Bethany House Publishers
Release Date: June 7th, 2022
Genre: Historical Christian Romance

He’s Faced Countless Perils on the Battlefield, but Nothing so Dangerous as Falling in Love.

Luke Davenport has been fighting all his life–for respect, for country, and for those unable to fight for themselves. But now that his Horsemen brothers are domesticated, he’s left alone to battle the wildness within. When an opportunity arises to take a job on his own, tracking down a group of rustlers, he jumps at the chance.

Damaris Baxter has mastered the art of invisibility. Plain and quiet, she hides in books and needlework, content to be overlooked. Until her brother dies suddenly, leaving her custody of her nephew. She moves to Texas to care for Nathaniel, determined to create the family for herself that she never thought she’d have and to give him the family he desperately needs.

When Nate finds himself knee-deep in trouble, Luke’s attempt to protect him leaves Damaris feeling indebted to the Horseman. But suspicions grow regarding the mysterious death of Damaris’s brother. And the more questions they ask, the more danger appears, threatening the family Luke may be unable to live without.

Book Review:

This was just a wonderful end to this lovely series. I have greatly enjoyed Karen Witemeyer’s Hanger’s Horsemen series and I was excited to read the conclusion to this series. In Honor’s Defense is the final book and much awaited! It did not disappoint and I loved everything about this book!

Luke Davenport, Preach was one of the characters I did not know as well. But it was a lot of fun to read about him and learn more about him. Preach had a rough childhood and he was also on guard in going back to his old ways. Luke was a sweet guy, he looked rough on the edges but he was just looking for a place to call his own. It was cute to read about him interacting with Daramis and her nephew, Nathaniel. Luke was fighting his demons, but he was also learning to let people in. 

Daramis Baxter was the perfect match for Luke. I really liked Daramis, she was so strong. She left her home to care for her nephew and she gave him unconditional love although he was difficult. Daramis was used to being invisible, forgettable, but being with Luke allowed her to feel seen.

Daramis and Luke were cute together! I liked how they balanced each other and helped make each other better people. It was interesting to read about them falling in love and read about Luke trying to protect Daramis and Nate. Daramis and Nate had worked their way into Luke’s heart and he wasn’t about to let them go. 

This book was very exciting and I was on the edge of my seat reading it! I did not want to put it down. It was interesting to read as Luke tried to protect Daramis and Nate and figure out what was trying to hurt them. The storyline was interesting and engaging. The characters were of course a lot of fun and it was cool to read about old characters!

In Honor’s Defense was a great book and I would definitely recommend it! In Honor’s Defense is a clean christoian historical romance. I also enjoy the faith aspects that are woven into Witemeyer’s books and this one was not different. If you enjoy historical Christian romance, then you will like this one.

Night Moves

About the Book:

Night Moves: (Nighthawk Security Book 4) by [Susan Sleeman]

Title: Night Moves
Series: Nighthawk Security #4
Author: Susan Sleeman
Release Date: June 18th, 2021
Genre: Christian Suspense

If you’re in his sights…

County social worker, Natalie Dunn discovers a horrible secret about the father of her juvenile clients. The man not only killed one woman, but Natalie suspects he’s killed several others. She plans to go to the authorities, but before she can, the killer turns his sights on her. Fearing for the lives of this man’s children, she removes them from their home and calls in former U.S. Marshal, Drake Byrd of Nighthawk Security to protect her and the children and help her prove their father is a ruthless killer

You’re as good as dead.

As they investigate, Drake learns the father is a former elite sniper and assassin, and he has done a professional job of hiding any evidence of his wrong doing. Drake vows to protect Natalie and the three children—all of whom he has come to care for—putting everything on the line for them. When bullets start flying, can he save them all from a certain death?

Book Review:

Night Moves is the fourth book in the Nighthawk series by Susan Sleeman, and at least for me, the one with the most surprises! The Nighthawk series is about the five Bryd brothers, and the last one features their sister in law. They are all either former military or with police background, and they formed a protection and investigation agency. This book is about the fourth brother, Drake. I loved getting to see a bit of his softer side in this book. It was soo cute!

Natalie Dunn, a county social worker, had her suspicions about her newest case, the Gentry family. But she’s horrified to learn that the father of her clients is a serial killer who’s killed multiple women. She goes to her friend Malone Reed for help, and Malone points her to Nighthawk Security. Drake Bryd, a former U.S. Marshal, is determined to help this brave and beautiful woman. But will he be able to not only protect Natalie but also the three children in their care.

Natalie was such an interesting character to me. She had a lot of family issues in her past, and it pushed her to help these kids who were like her. She was adorable with the Gentry kids, and they simply loved her. But she still didn’t let anyone get too close. She was trying so hard to keep all these walls around her, but the whole Byrd family wore her down especially Drake. I loved seeing the sweet side of Drake in this book! 

In the other books, he has the role of the bad guy in the family. He said all of the things that no one else is willing to say. So it was cute to see how soft he was with Natalie. She helped him see how trying to get an adrenaline rush wasn’t the only way to truly live. Instead, it was through quiet moments that were packed with meaning, and the Gentry kids had a huge role in helping him see this. It was funny and sweet to see how awkward Drake was with them. He had no experience with kids, but they quickly wormed their way into his heart. And he’s going to need every skill and resource he has to protect them.

As usual I had no idea where this story was going! Though I was writing this review, I was trying to convince myself that I did in fact see the twists coming(but I totally did not). Of course there were the main twists in the suspense side of the story, but I definitely wasn’t expecting a lot of the other surprises. I try very hard not to do any spoilers, so you will need to read this wonderful book to find out what I’m talking about! I would highly recommend it to anyone who loves clean suspense novels.

Turn to Me

Turn to Me (Misty River Romance, A Book #3) by [Becky Wade]

Title: Turn to Me

Author: Becky Wade
Publisher: Bethany House Publishers
Release Date: May 3rd, 2022
Genre: Contemporary Romance

His promise will cost him far more than he imagined.

Guilt has defined Luke Dempsey’s life, but it was self-destructiveness that landed him in prison. When his friend and fellow inmate lay dying shortly before Luke’s release, the older man revealed he left a string of clues for his daughter, Finley, that will lead her to the treasure he’s hidden. Worried that she won’t be the only one pursuing the treasure, he gains Luke’s promise to protect her until the end of her search.

Spunky and idealistic, Finley Sutherland is the owner of an animal rescue center and a defender of lost causes. She accepts Luke’s help on the treasure hunt while secretly planning to help him in return–by coaxing him to embrace the forgiveness he’s long denied himself.

As they draw closer to the final clue, their reasons for resisting each other begin to crumble, and Luke realizes his promise will push him to the limit in more ways than one. He’ll do his best to shield Finley from unseen threats, but who’s going to shield him from losing his heart?

Book Review:

Oh, this was such a satisfying end to an amazing series! This series has been so good and I was super excited to finally get to read Luke’s book! Turn to Me is the third book in Becky Wade’s Misty River Series.

Luke was a complicated character but it was so fun to read about him. He hid his emotions and feelings, which are two different things, behind walls to protect himself. I liked Luke and it was fun to get to know him. I knew of him from previous books but I did not really know him. He had been through a lot and he had a lot of guilt to work through. It was sweet to read about Luke interacting with Finley. However, Luke had to learn to let God in and give God his guilt.

Finley was fun. She was a whimsical character, and I loved her personality. She was passionate about caring for animals, and she also cared for people. Finley was super sweet and I loved her quirkiness. She had a deep faith in God but there were times when she had to learn to trust Him again. I loved the growth of her faith, Finley had to learn to wait on God’s time.

Finley and Luke were a fun couple to read about. They were both working through different things and they had experienced life in different ways. I liked the development of their relationship. But there were times when I was a bit unsure of it because Finley was a believer and Luke was not. However, otherwise this was a good book. 

The side characters were fun and I loved the little story about Ben! I loved his romance and getting to read more about him, amazing! The plot was also very interesting and it was a lot of fun to read about Finley and Luke trying to solve the treasure hunt together.

Turn to Me was a lovely book and I would totally recommend it! Turn to Me is a clean contemporary romance with interesting characters, sweet dogs, and an engaging plot.

Title: The Planner
Series: Brides of Beaufort #2
Author: Jess Mastorakos
Release Date: 
February 23rd, 2022
Genre: Contemporary Romance

When I agreed to be the best man at my closest friend’s upcoming wedding, I didn’t realize how much time I’d be spending with the wedding planner, his gorgeous younger sister.

She used to bug us when we were kids, but now the only thing that bugs me about her is the fact that I’m attracted to her.

I know her big bro would not approve, so now I just need to get through this wedding without acting on it. Which might be a problem if she doesn’t stop looking at me like she feels the same way.

Book Review:

This was another amazing book by Jess Mastorakos. I am constantly blown away by her characters and stories, they are always awesome books! The Planner is the second book in her series, Brides of Beaufort. I was super excited for this next book and it did not disappoint, I mean can I gush even more about an author and her books. 

Aria was so sweet and cool. She is running a wedding planning business, that is just so cool. I loved her spunk and her kindness. She was stubborn and she worked hard. I felt for her as she helped brides with the happiest day of their life, while longing after a guy who wouldn’t date her. She had fallen for her brother’s best friend but it had never gotten anywhere. Aria had to fight for Will, he was stubborn but so was she. She didn’t let people walk over her or make decisions for her, but she still listened to counsel. I enjoyed reading about Aria, she felt real and relatable. Aria had to learn what it meant to love Will and how to show him that she loved him. 

Even with all of his faults, I still loved Will. He was kind and he was just trying his best. He didn’t have the best childhood so he was afraid of becoming like his father. He had loved Aria since high school but he was scared of hurting her. I felt for Will, he was trying to be a better person. He was also afraid of losing the only family that had cared for him. It was fun to read about Will, reading about him growing. He fought for the underdogs, he just had to learn to cut himself some slack. Will has to take a chance and hope for the best. 

Will and Aria were cute together, I liked their chemistry. They had known each other for most of their life so they already knew each other well. It was sweet to read about them admitting their feelings for each other. Although Paul made some blunders, I loved getting to see more of him and Shelby. Mastroakos writes such stunning characters, I always enjoy the interactions and relationships between the characters. 

I finished The Planner in one day! It was just so great! I would totally recommend it. The Planner is a clean contemporary Marine romance. It has great characters, brother’s best friend, and an engaging plot. I am super excited for the next book! I just wish I didn’t have to wait so long. 🙂

Potential Threat: A Sweet Romantic Suspense (Black Tower Security Book 1) by [Tara Grace Ericson]

Author: Tara Grace Ericson
Release Date: April 11th, 2022
Genre: Christian Suspense

Can this bad-boy bodyguard protect America’s sweetheart without losing his heart?

Fiona Raven is famous for her homestyle cooking with a hint of Italian flair. Everyone knows her face and has her pre-packaged food in their freezer. So why is she receiving threatening notes? Fiona’s brother insists on sending a bodyguard, news that only gets worse when she realizes it is his friend Ryder – the one man she could never let herself love.

Ryder McClain has played the villain enough times to appreciate being the hero working for Black Tower Security. Along with his new client comes a stern warning from her brother – his boss and best friend – to keep his hands off. It doesn’t matter anyway, Fiona is the perfect woman, and exactly the kind he doesn’t deserve.

Ryder will do whatever it takes to protect Fiona. Threatening notes turn into suspicious break-ins and destructive corporate espionage, and this bodyguard assignment gets even more serious. Can Ryder get to the bottom of the threat before his heart gets too involved?

Book Review:

Well, I loved this book! I read it in one day! Potential Threat is the first book in Tara Grace Ericson’s new series, Black Tower Security. I was excited to read this book because I have loved Ericson’s other contemporary Christian books and this one did not disappoint. 

Fiona Raven was a strong woman who felt the need to be perfect. Perfection was the goal that she strived for, but there were times when the weight of being perfect became too heavy. I really liked Fiona, I was able to connect with her really easily. She was strong and stubborn, and she had created a wonderful name for herself. Fiona had to learn that she did not have to put up walls and that she didn’t have to be perfect. 

Ryder McClain, oh, I loved him. He was a hero who didn’t know his worth. He had struggled through a rough patch in his life and he was trying to find his footing again. Ryder had a lot of pain to work through, he didn’t know how to trust his instincts. I loved reading about Ryder growing and fighting to protect Fiona. He was such a sweetheart underneath the presence he showed others. Ryder will have to learn to trust his instincts and believe that God knows what he is doing. 

Oh, I loved the characters. I felt for them as they struggled to trust God and in a way find themselves. Life had not always been kind and they were working to overcome their pasts. The plot was also so interesting and I was on the edge of my seat reading it. Ryder was trying to protect Fiona from a stalker and it was just so interesting. I love the way that Ericson was able to weave together the romance, faith, and suspense. 

Potential Threat was a wonderful book and I would totally recommend it! Potential Threat is a clean Christian suspense book and the first in its series. The suspense was not too scary and the perfect blend for me. I am super excited for the next book in this series.
