A Brand New Ending | Jennifer Probst

Ophelia and Kyle were a couple that felt real to me. A couple who grew apart and had to learn who each other had become to move forward.

All Rhodes Lead Here | Mariana Zapata

This read was like snuggling up next to a fire with a warm blanket on a winter's night. Zapata sets your into a place where you just want to stay and watch things unfold. Rhodes was quiet strength that Aurora didn't realize she was looking for.

I gravitated to this audiobook because of Laura Graham being the narrator and that became the main highlight of the book for me. I am not sure I would label this a romance. For me it's a dive into grief. Even though the audio was only 6 hours, this one took me a while because it was hard to get invested in. I didn't care for Katy and I am not sure why. Overall I was underwhelmed...sadly.

There is something about a good military/post-miltary romance. Always very intense and spicy.

Drop Dead | Tate James
post image

5 ⭐ James does this every time. She throws you on this ride that dangles over the edge of a cliff so high you can't see the bottom. Teases you by letting you think you understand what is happening. Then she pulls that safety net out from under you because you initial guesses weren't anywhere close to what you expected. All of this along with a steamy, push you up against the wall, intense dose of romance.
