Blurb: Rex “TW” McMurtry’s perpetual single-hood wouldn’t bother him so much if all his ex-girlfriends didn’t keep marrying the very next person they dated, especially when so many of those grooms are his closest friends. He may be a pro-football defensive end for the Chicago Squalls, but the press only wants to talk about how […]

Top 10 of 2021 is hosted once again by Kimberly Faye Reads. This last topic is always a hard one, because I’m so excited for so many! So I will divide it up into two lists, a Romance section and a YA section, and it’s possible there might be more than 10 on each of […]

Okay, with these last three books I passed my final goal on Goodreads of 210 books to make it to 215. I think I started the year with 215 but dropped the total down when I got behind about halfway through the year. But anyway I want to get all non-tour reviews done before the […]

Top 10 of 2021 is hosted once again by Kimberly Faye Reads. This topic is always one of the hardest! But I had to go with books that I might have been surprised by, or ones I keep thinking about for some reason, or maybe I have recommended them to someone. And once again I’m […]

Top 10 of 2021 is hosted once again by Kimberly Faye Reads. Technically the topic for today is supposed to be OTP or Favorite couple. But I have more fun listing my favorite book boyfriends from the year, so that’s what I’m sharing! And I might have to go over 10, we’ll see. While the […]

Top 10 of 2020 is hosted once again by Kimberly Faye Reads. As any book lover knows, there are so many good covers out there! Because there were so many, I had to divide it up into romance and YA because I like those covers for different reasons. And these will all be books I […]

Blurb: He’s broody, he’s driven, and he’s coming back to claim what’s his. “First, do no harm…”It’s the start of my oath as a doctor, and breaking that oath is how I began my career.Only I didn’t just do harm, I watched a man die right in front of me.And not just any man—a man […]

Top 10 of 2020 is hosted once again by Kimberly Faye Reads. Technically today’s topic is favorite characters. But that is always a hard one for me, or I mean it probably is just almost saying the same books I’ve already mentioned in other posts. So I thought I’d do a little easier one and […]
