Read Coming in from the Cold (Gravity, #1)

He can’t have her. And he can’t tell anyone why.

Ski racer Dane “Danger” Hollister does not do relationships, though he keeps his reason a secret. The real-life curse he’s inherited from his mother will eventually cost him everything: his place on the Olympic ski team, his endorsement income, and his ability to fly downhill at top speed.

Reluctant country girl Willow Reade meets Dane by accident. Literally. Her skidding truck forces him off the road during a blizzard. Stranded together in his Jeep as night falls, the two loneliest people in Vermont find themselves sharing more than they’d planned. And not just conversation.

Yet neither can guess how their unlikely tryst will threaten Dane’s frightening secret and Willow’s tentative peace with her own choices. Only mutual trust and understanding can end their pain and give them a hard won shot at love.

I’m not convinced that the heroine really grappled with her mental hurdles, since the focus was on his angst. I’m also not convinced he showed he was enough of a catch to keep her affection after being such a douche 🤔


Read The Best Men

Read The Best Men (The Best Men, #1)

In my defense, I was left alone with a bottle of single-malt and a life-long penchant for protecting my baby sister. Still, that’s no excuse to send ten drunk-texts on why her hasty marriage would be a mistake.

If only I had just texted my sister. But nope. I accidentally sent the message to her, her groom, and his super hot wingman.

I also used the phrase “super hot wingman,” so I’d like to die now.

Instead, I have to plan a wedding with the aforementioned hottie and share a too-small guesthouse in steamy Miami.

Three days in the sun with the cocky, charming former athlete who likes to push my buttons? Fine, two can play at that let’s-infuriate-each-other game.

Until Asher ups the stakes with one wildly sexy suggestion. A no-strings fling, then I go back to my single dad life in New York, and he returns to his star-studded one.

Sign me up.

But the more nights I spend with the other best man, the more I want days too, and that just can’t happen. Especially when I find out the real reason why…

Light and fluffy at first with a surprisingly angsty ending. Some funny bits though not a lot really going on. I wasn’t sure what Asher liked about Mark. Asher’s character growth seemed to take a jump at the end. I liked the spreadsheet shtick.


Re-read Hello Forever

Read Hello Forever (Hello Goodbye, #2) by Sarina Bowen

When they were only teenagers, Axel and Caxton were caught making out in the woods at church camp. And afterward, Cax had disappeared from all the youth group activities.

Six years later Axel is astonished to spot his first love’s face in the crowd of a college basketball game he’s watching on television – at a school that has just offered him a job. It’s a thousand miles away, in a tiny rural town. But suddenly he can’t wait to get there.

Lots of angst and yearning. An intense ending.


Read Moonlighter

Read Moonlighter (The Company, #1) by Sarina Bowen

Five nights. Two adversaries. Only one bed in their hotel room.

Enjoyed it but not totally my bag – both the heroine being pregnant and the story being romantic suspense. Good to try new things though.

It left a storyline unresolved, perhaps for the next book? I will probably skip it.
