FINDING MY WAY (BEAUMONT 4) by HEIDI McLAUGHLIN
I looooooove this series and though I am not much of a fan of Liam Page, I truly love how Heidi McLaughlin wrote everything from book 1. Finding My Way is Liam Page’s side of the story, a prequel to Forever My Girl. Told in his POV, we get to live the life Liam Page lived after he left Beaumont.
Like I said, I am not a fan of Liam Page. Why? Well, the fact that he did leave Beaumont & Josie the way he did made me hate him (in a way). And reading this book is like going through that scene over again. It was heartbreaking but enlightening at the same time. But just to get the record straight, I understand why Liam had to leave but I still hate how he did it. 
Hands down to Heidi McLaughlin in writing this book with so much sincerity and genuineness from Liam’s side. I think she did a wonderful job in giving fans of this series the back story of Liam & Josie’s life in high school. Liam has always been a leader and being a leader comes with so much responsibility & pressure that at the end of this book all those expectations and pressure made him leave the place he loves and the only person he wants. Reading that scene made me furious and sad. I guess, it’s understandable but with him leaving and not knowing things made it very difficult not just for him but most especially to Josie. 
This book tells a story of Liam & how he coped and pursued his dream. All the partying and girls was told in this book yet the other side of him that he left in Beaumont still lingers. It’s obvious he loves and will forever love Josie but I still hate him. HAHAHAHAHAHA! There was some fast forward scenes in this book and for me it was okay. I think it was necessary to connect all the dots in the story and it made more sense. 
As a fan of this series, I am still hoping for the book about Liam & Josie where I can finally say that I don;t hate Liam anymore. I am still looking for more effort and grand gestures from Liam Page. I know he did some in Forever My Girl but for me it was not enough. I mean, I want more effort from him and a story that focuses on his and Josie’s life after FMG. 
I recommend this book to be read after reading all 3 books in the series. This is not a standalone and I think fans will very much appreciate this book, especially those who are fans of Liam Page. I really hope there’s more though. *fingers crossed :)

REMEMBERING YOU (REMEMBER 1) by SANDI LYNN
Have I mentioned before that Sandi Lynn is one of my go-to authors? No? Well, now you know. She just is. There are a few authors in my go-to list when I want to read something so romantic and passionate and she is one of em. Her stories are plain romantic but with depth and you will never get tired of reading her stories. And with this new book from Sandi Lynn, you will not be disappointed. 
Okay, before I get into details let me just clarify that this is a novella. A short & quick read that fans of her will enjoy. Just don’t compare or have an expectation that is similar to her Forever series. What I’m trying to say is that this is different given that it is a quick read so don;t expect more details that you will get when you read a full length novel. 
Remembering You is kind of a cliche read but in a good way. The characters are swoon-worthy especially Sam and I love the fact that Claire, the main female lead in this story is strong-willed and down-to-earth despite the fact that she have all the material things she needs and doesn’t need. Sam & Claire’s love story was quick. It was like a love at first sight and then BOOM! something happened and things were all of a sudden different. I said it was kind of cliche because of how the characters found each other after all that has happened but I love reading it. The title is very apt and I cannot wait for more. I hope the next book will be a full length novel and more passionate moments that includes Sam & Claire and hopefully a glimpse of their future.

LET LOVE BE (THE LOVE 4) by MELISSA COLLINS
I have read Melissa Collins’ previous books in this series and I adore books 1 & 2. I have yet to read book 3 & 3.5 but I think this is her best and my fave so far. But it may change or not once I have read 3.5 because I will always be rooting for Maddy & Reid. Anyways, this book is very different from book 1. I think her writing developed into something more mature and life changing but the sweetness and romance in her story remains. She is one of my go to authors if I want to read something sweet and romantic yet will make you cry like a baby. I think this can be read as a standalone but to fully enjoy the series, I recommend to read all. 
Lucy & Evan’s story is mature and not young adult characters have. What the characters been through is hard and difficult but them meeting and knowing each other, feelings developed and love happened. Their journey is quite hard. This story will inspire you, make you feel giddy and at some point will make you cry bucket of tears. I did. I think Melissa Collins’ wrote this story in a very sincere manner that readers of this book will feel the loss & love the characters felt. Like I said, this is by far Melissa’s best work and it was worth reading til the very end.

You know I can’t be found with you

We get back to my house

BAD FOR YOU (SEA BREEZE 7) by ABBI GLINES
I think I said this before but I’m going to say it again. You can NEVER go wrong with Abbi Glines’ books. Her stories are light & full of passion that it brings all the good stuff a book has to offer. She is definitely amazing. She is one of my fave authors out there and she never ever disappoints. 
Abbi Glines gave us another story worth swooning for and remembering. Bad For You is Krit’s story and if you have been reading Sea Breeze series then you have met him in Misbehaving. The early part of the story tackles a sensitive topic that most not comfortable discussing and a lot are experiencing. Abuse is one of those topics in a book or a story that will always make me cringe. Though Abbi Glines didn’t thoroughly dwell on it, it was still painful to read. But I wish she tackled it more though. 
Blythe grew up without a mother. She died giving birth to her and was raised by a couple who even though feeds her doesn’t really show her any affection other than the wife abusing her. Verbal and sometimes physical. She was sheltered. Literally. And made to believe that she is ugly both inside and out. When an opportunity happen that gave her the chance to go out of that sheltered home and enroll to college & be that girl she dreamed of… one with freedom, she was excited and made sure that she will be that girl. 
We met Krit in Misbehaving and that he is the lead singer of a local band. Of course, he parties and bury his you-know-what in every girl that throws themselves at him. That until he met Blythe, his neighbor. The day he saw her made him want to protect her. He knows he is innocent and feels like she needs someone who can take care of her. Someone who is strong and capable. Their friendship grew and as time goes by, so as their feelings. They spend most of their time together talking and just being themselves. But sometimes life happens and with mistakes comes the realization of your true desire. 
There was a lot of scenes in the book where Blythe’s good nature and heart makes me want to slap her. She is just pure and so kind that even though it’t not her fault, she will own it and make it seem that she is the one to blame. IDK if I admire her or what but I love how Abbi Glines made it to something so engaging and romantic at the same time. She has that talent ya know and it never gets old. 
This book will make you love and want to read Abbi Glines’ books. She has that gift where every story she tells whether it is something light, full of drama or just plain sexy & romantic, you cannot help but fall in love. This is the 7th book in the Sea Breeze series and let me tell ya, it just keeps getting better and better. And Krit & Blythe are characters that you will love.

KNOX (VOL. 2) by CASSIA LEO
I am just lovin this erotic, mystery and romance serial from Cassia Leo. She never disappoints. In this second installment, we get a POV from both characters, Knox & Becky. It was so much fun to read because even if it is a serial, it keeps getting better and every chapter gives you that adrenaline rush where you can’t seem to figure out what might happen next. Plus the mystery side of the story is so engaging and don;t forget the hot & steamy sex scenes. Oooooohhhhhhh! What a delight. 
I cannot wait for the 3rd installment. With the sort of cliffhanger in the end of this book, I would want to have the next book with the right amount of drama that only includes Knox & Becky. The part that they really talk about what kind of relationship they have and the exciting news whether she is or she’s not ______. Ya know. *WINK *WINK

DISCOVERING LUCY by LAURA DUNAWAY
Discovering Lucy touches the subject of domestic violence. When I read the synopsis, I knew I had to give it a try. There’s nothing more admirable than a woman living in a household who is experiencing abuse to get up and stand for herself and walk away from the hell of a life and this story gave that.
It was a short and quick read but nonetheless a good one. I like that Lucy finally able to get out of her miserable life and be herself once again. I love the fact that she is strong and working hard to live a life past of her bad experience. That’s what every woman in the same situation should do. I also love the chemistry between Lucy and Knox. I like how the author build a romance between them and at the same time give her readers a good and hot scenes. 
A quick read that you will devour in one sitting and by the end of the story, you will be happy and smiling for the HEA that was given.

Reasonable Doubt is truly a hot & short read. It will also shock you. A good kind of shock, I hope. I cannot wait to read the next installment. I bet it will be hotter than this and can’t to know more about Andrew’s life. Eeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!
