R E V I E W ➠ Southern Sunshine by Natasha Madison

(Southern #8)


I never wanted to be a cowboy, living in a small town was suffocating.
The military was my out.
I saw every place I ever wanted and everything that nightmares are made of.
Until I almost lost my life and then I ended up back home.
Finding out that I was pregnant the night before I left for college changed everything.
I left that small town and vowed to never return.
When my grandfather died, I had no choice but to go back home.
The plan was just for two weeks.
I thought it would be quick and easy, until he was standing at the back door asking questions.
Secrets never stay secrets for long in this town. 


Not my first read by the author and def never my last. Natasha is a INSTA-READ author for me and I have also read all of the other 7 books in the series. I must say this one broke my heart as well as made me happy. I was excited for Reed’s story because he was the youngest brother who went off to fight for his country. It is a quicker read.

Reed is a man who left town as soon as he turned 18, never to look back. Hazel is the woman who not only fled the same town but for more reasons than not. The heroine contained a lot more secrets than you would think, but this small town never let’s you keep them for too long. When Reed runs into Hazel again, he is all smiles but Hazel is boring daggers at him. He is confused but soon finds out the reason, when he tries to go over to mend things with Hazel thing’s don’t turn out as he hoped. When secrets get revealed, that’s when you’ll need the tissues handy!

It was so beautiful, sweet and swoony. Reed truly made my heart skip a beat and Hazel was the sweet feisty one, perfect combo. I really loved this HEA and most of all Olivia the little girl that stole MY heart!

R E V I E W ➠ My True Love by Melissa Foster

(The Steeles at Silver Island #2)

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… 

RELEASE DATE: March 31, 2021

Kissing Jules was nothing like kissing as he knew it. It was raw and passionate. Exquisite perfection.


Not my first read by the author and I LOVE ME SOME MF books so I am a huge fan, she has been an author I have been reading since the early 2010’s so to say I am a fan is an understatement. I so so so wish I could give this book more than 5 stars because it truly deserves it. MY HEART! I don’t even know where to begin with this review, I want to give it out all but keep it all away because you MUST experience this, the writing, the characters, the events THE HEART!

Before I start I want to express how much I loved the side characters and their banter and especially Archer (the heroine’s brother) hahah I loved everything about him in this, little more than the other side characters. Okay let’s get into it. We have Jules the heroine who is a young woman (mid 20s) that has overcome so much already from when she was just a baby. Her outlook on life is so beautiful you’ll catch yourself smile or just shake your head because you want to share her enthusiasm for finding the good in everything. She may not have any dark secrets or past but she comes with so much heart you won’t know what to do with her. Luckily Grant out hero does. Well, not right away because this broody, rough and closed off hero who considers himself broken not just physically but mentally is a hard egg to crack. Julie is up for it because she’s been noticing Grant for a while now and she may be innocent but her thoughts are not 😉

Everything about this book down to the title and the cover that matches it all so very well, I was in love with. From page one! I started reading at 7pm stayed up until 115am and crashed and then immediately continued when I woke up because I just needed it that bad! This book is very addicting, heartbreaking, beautiful, romantic, sweet, sexy (oh so sexy) and just a perfect fit for the series! I can’t wait for more and you bet your bottom I will be getting a paperback of this!!

Super excited for Archer’s story next!
