It’s sticky, it’s messy, it’s sweet, it’s Buns.

Alice Clayton is the queen of romantic comedies. The best part about them though? They aren’t just slap stick funny reads, they have heart and emotion as well. I’ve enjoyed every book from her Hudson Valley series, and Buns was no exception! It was sweet, funny, sexy, and had just the right amount of feels!

Meet Clara and Archie…
“You really are a pain in the ass,”
he said, his breath fogging up the space—the very little space—between us.
“You’re the only person who’s ever told me that.”
“I find that incredibly hard to believe.”

Clara has a job where she travels to a new hotel or resort every few months to turn it around. Some of these hotels just need some little tweaks, some need bigger tweaks, but they just need some TLC and expert advice from Clara herself. Archie Bryant is the owner of The Bryant Mountain House and if you ask him, his fifth generation resort doesn’t need anything different. The resort’s books tell a different story. To say that there was a rub between these two in the beginning would be an understatement.

These two were hilarious together. I loved the back and forth and bickering. And you could tell there was attraction and sexual chemistry right under the surface, just waiting to explode. I loved the light moments, but I truly loved getting in deeper with Clara and Archie. Both of these characters had a lot of depth and pasts that were difficult in different ways.

Do you have any idea how hard it is to let someone help you when you’ve spent a lifetime making sure people know you don’t need them?

As much as I loved getting to know Clara and Archie, I also loved getting to see Roxie, Leo, Natalie, and Oscar again. Plus all the other fun characters in Bailey Falls! I sincerely hope this isn’t the last book in the Hudson Valley! The town and characters are so charming- I would love to read more!

If you’re looking for an engaging and entertaining read, pick up Buns!

Release Blitz for Somebody Else's Sky by Jessica Hawkins @jess_hawk @givemebooksblog

Title: Somebody Else's Sky
Series: Something in the Way #2
Author: Jessica Hawkins
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: May 22, 2017


If I closed my eyes, I could still see them—all blonde sunshine, ocean-blue eyes, and long limbs. The glint of Lake’s gold bracelet. Pink cotton candy on Tiffany’s tongue. My scenery may have changed from heaven to hell, but some things never would: my struggle to do right by both sisters. To let Lake soar. To lift Tiffany up. The sacrifices I made for them, I made willingly.
A better man would’ve walked away by now, but I never claimed to be any good. I only promised myself I’d keep enough distance. If I’d learned one thing from my past, it was that love came in different forms. You could love passionately, hurt deep, die young. Or you could provide the kind of firm, steady support someone else could lean on.
Lake was everything I wanted, and nothing I could ever have. I was nobody before I knew her and a criminal after. The way to love her was to let her shine—even if it would be for somebody else.
Book two in the Something in the Way series, an epic, 3-book saga of forbidden love...

Reanell's 5 Star Review:

I started reading this book last night and only made it to 11% before the day caught up with me and I had to stop. I needed a good nights sleep so I paused reading until this morning. Well, let's just say I fucking devoured this book. I was in between raging and crying most of the time. I've NEVER had a book make me so damn mad and break my heart at the same time. 

Jessica Hawkins has BLOWN MY EVER LOVING MIND! I wanna know where the F I have been that I'm just discovering her writing. Somebody Else's Sky is probably going to be my #1 favorite for 2017. Well, no probably about it... IT WILL BE MY FAVE FOR 2017! It's been hours since I finished and I'm still RAGING over this book. 

Now how can I rage about a book but give it 5 stars? Let me tell you. I was so invested in these characters that whatever was happening was making my emotions go haywire. ANY author that can make me sad, mad, F'N pissed off and still manage to make me smile all in the same book....that's true talent. 

How in the world am I supposed to wait until October to get the next book? HOW?? Somebody come hold me!! LOL! 

Be prepared to strap on a seatbelt because Jessica will take you on one hell of a bumpy ride!!!

Twenty-Two by Toni Aleo is LIVE!!!

When Lucas Brooks was traded to the Nashville Assassins over a decade ago, he was a brash, brawling hothead without an anchor.

Well, four kids and a smokin' hot wife will weigh you down real fast, but Lucas wouldn't change a minute of his happily ever after.

During an epic, end-of-season quest for the Cup, changes appear on the horizon, and suddenly, there's a plot twist in Lucas's fairy tale.

My name is Toni Aleo and I’m a total dork.
I am a wife, mother of two and a bulldog, and also a hopeless romantic.
I am the biggest Shea Weber fan ever, and can be found during hockey season with my nose pressed against the Bridgestone Arena’s glass, watching my Nashville Predators play!
When my nose isn’t pressed against the glass, I enjoy going to my husband and son’s hockey games, my daughter’s dance competition, hanging with my best friends, taking pictures, scrapbooking, and reading the latest romance novel.
I have a slight Disney and Harry Potter obsession, I love things that sparkle, I love the color pink, I might have been a Disney Princess in a past life… probably Belle.
… and did I mention I love hockey?
