Herd That - Lani Lynn Vale







The Valentine Boys
Release Date: January 21





His Wranglers fit him like a glove. A really tight, leaving nothing to the imagination, glove. Codie wants nothing more than to shove that Wrangler-covered butt straight into the mud.


Ace Valentine has a smart mouth, a devil-may-care attitude, and those wicked eyes aimed directly at her.


She doesn’t know what to do with that kind of attention. Especially not from the sweet-talking man that has no problem charming every woman that enters his orbit—everyone but her, at least.


Ace isn’t sure why Codie Spears had her panties in a twist when it comes to him, but every snub and insult she hurls his way brings him closer and closer to falling for her.



He’s not sure what it is about the town’s bad girl that draws his attention, but every encounter they have leaves him wanting her until there’s nothing else left to do but have her.


The only thing is, she’s been convinced by everyone around her that she’s not good enough. Tell a person that she’s a piece of trash enough times, and eventually she’ll start to believe it. It’s going to take a lot of smooth-talking and gentling on his part to get her to see that she’s worth it. 


And once he has her where he wants her? Well, she’ll make a mighty fine rancher’s wife.

I’ve read nearly all of Lani Lynn Vale’s backlist and it didn’t click with me that the Valentine boys series was based on the brothers of Georgia who was featured in Double Tap until reading the first chapter.


I love how Lani’s book world is interconnected and all the books have ties to other stories, it’s one of the things that draws me back over and over again.  Whilst I love her fireman, motorcycle club and military men, I’m already falling for her cowboys.


Ace Valentine is the eldest Valentine brother.  He’s hardworking, responsible, determined, driven and incredibly sexy.


Codie is an intriguing character.  She left Kilgore as a teenager with a reputation, and her reputation as a trouble maker precedes her when she returns to town.  Although she’s no longer the troublesome teen she’s still a little spoiled, a tad distrustful and quite sweet and a tad quirky.


With Lani’s signature blend of heat, heart and humor I was completely captivated by this emotional and fun story from the beginning to end and cannot wait to see more of these characters and the other Valentine siblings.



















When Hope Ends (Life Begins) - Freya Barker






Title: When Hope Ends; Life Begins 
Author: Freya Barker
Genre: Contemporary 
Romance  
Release Date: January 21, 2020 



It’s the best day of his life—the worst of hers.
She left her soul behind in the dead silence of a hospital room.

One moment in time leaves their paths unavoidably entwined.
An invisible connection held by one heart beating between them.
*Originally published in the Then There Was You box set.


AMAZON | APPLE BOOKS | NOOK | KOBO 







The title really says it all for this book.  When Hope Ends (Life Begins) is a heartfelt and emotional story of fate and finding hope, love and purpose after loss.

Both heartbreaking and heartwarming I loved the strength and resilience of the heroine Mika.

This story really resonated with me as elements of the story touched quite close to home, and whilst it wasn’t an easy read because of that it’s a very well written title.

The Third Best Thing - Maya Hughes





Title: The Third Best Thing
Series: Fulton U #3
Author: Maya Hughes
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Cover Design: Najla Qamber
Release Date: January 30, 2020



Dear Letter Girl, I need to see you. When can we meet?

Her response never came. My secret pen pal with a dirty mind has ghosted me. I've roped Jules, my sweet as pie next door neighbor, to help me track her down.

There's only one problem—I'm falling for her. The tortoise shell glasses, out of this world curves and delicious treats are making the search for The Letter Girl even harder.

My notes were supposed to be a one time thing. A little too much wine and naughty thoughts on a winter's night. I never thought Berk would write back. I wanted to tell him it was me, but the fear of rejection kept my lips sealed.

Now he’s enlisted my help to track down The Letter Girl and our search has him hot on my, ahem, her trail.

She's the girl next door.

He's my secret pen pal.

Truth is on a collision course with their hearts and it’s only a matter of time before one of them gets wrecked...








How can you lose someone you’ve never met? The Letter Girl had careened into my life like a damn smash and grab pro and wormed her way into my heart before I knew what happened.
She was everything I’d ever wanted in a girl. Hot as hell. Smart and caring. The slow slide of the notes from X-rated to something more caught me off guard, but she became someone I could talk to. Someone I could share parts of myself that I didn’t share with other people. Even if she didn’t know everything about my past, she knew more than most.
No one wanted to be sexy pen pals with a former foster kid with almost no one in the whole world. Nah, that was for the college senior, soon to be pro athlete.
Don’t ever let anyone see things bother you; I learned that in foster home number four. If everything’s a joke, there’s nothing they can do to hurt you, but losing TLG when I thought I’d finally found someone who knew me for me and actually gave a shit? That hurt. It was an unexpected squeeze on my heart every so often that made it hard to breathe.
Jules slid her hand closer, herky-jerky like she was in a stop motion animation movie before it finally landed on top of mine with a gentle pat. “Is it really that important for you to find her?”
I shrugged. “Maybe not. She probably got tired of trying to figure out my fucking chicken scratch.” I forced out a laugh through the tightness in my chest.
“Once the season starts things will be crazy for you, right?”
“You’re right. I guess I’m fixating because not much else is going on.” No, this would always be a question I needed answered. Who is TLG and did all the things we’d written about mean as much to her as they meant to me?
