The Smallest Part by Amy Harmon @aharmon_author


“In the end, only three things matter. How much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you.”
- Unknown
There were so many moments of sheer shock and awe in this story that I can't seem to string together all my thoughts. I'm always left profoundly touched and shaken after I finish Amy Harmon's stories and this time is no different. 
Amy Harmon is one author who I read blind. She's someone I trust emphatically to give me a story of flawed characters who are so truly real on the pages that I forget for a moment, lose myself while on the journey and become someone there in it with them. I feel their pain, I love with them and I learn and grow as they do. 
 The characters in all the previous books by Amy changed me in the only way a story can. Every time I open her book I simply take a deep breath and say , Ok let's do this. 
 So begins The Smallest Part.
 Here I am with Noah, Mercedes and Cora and I'm down that familiar rabbit hole again, lost in Amy's wonderland where people forgive, they love, they live. Truly human characters who make mistakes, lie and even break promises yet when you boil it all down, you've got only one choice.

 Mercy and forgiveness. 
Mercedes gave away her heart to keep it. To save her own self from pain she sheltered herself from feeling and risking. Noah respected and loved her so much he let her choose. 
The girl who was as much a part of him as the palms of his hands or the heart in his chest
Then life came in like a wrecking ball and their chance to rise from the wreckage began.
Pressure sometimes begets beautiful things.  
The passion in this novel was brought to a completely different level yet kept that secret and special sense of intimacy. I felt more than heat, I felt emotion and tenderness. Simply put I felt the characters love. 

The scenes in this book between these wonderful characters are so touching and raw that any human with a heart will undoubtedly feel tremendous emotion. There were secrets uncovered, shocking moments that left me absolutely stunned. This journey isn't something I want to ruin for anyone so I won't give more away. Just know that after I closed my kindle, I couldn't fathom starting another book for a good long time. My heart just couldn't hold anything else. 

 For that alone I can't recommend this story hard enough.

Watch Me Follow by Harloe Rae @harloerae


As a reader I'll admit that I stalk groups and discussions about certain types of books. When I see the terms #StalkerAlert or #PerfectHero or celibate hero and completely faithful. Well those terms have me anxious and excited for that story.

Harloe Rae is a new name for me and when I saw all the whispers about Watch Me Follow, well I simply had to read it. Ms. Rae simply gave us as readers a beautiful and touching story of first love, second chances and endless and unwavering devotion. What peeked (little pun intended)  my interest was the hero Ryker and his total fascinated stalking persona. 

He was so broken yet so beautiful. He had the purest heart and simply received peace and tranquility in Lennon's presence. 

His childhood broke my heart and I simply longed to comfort that sweet little boy. Lennon was cut off and sheltered yet her heart had that nurturing nature that was brought alive by Ryker.

I was pleased to see that this author didn't take the easy way by focusing on only their sexual and physical connections. She first opened their hearts, fed their souls and then and only then did she remove the last layer of the flesh. Sensual and emotional.

 This read had everything I love. I see great things for Ms. Rae. I really hope she continues to write 100% devoted characters. 

Love stories to me feel authentic if the characters remain true to their feelings and this sweet story had devotion on every page.

Stumbling into Love (Fluke my Life #2) by Aurora Rose Reynolds @auroraroser

Stumbling Into Love (Fluke My Life, #2)

Add Stumbling Into Love 

Yes! Now that's an authentic ARR hero! 💞 💕
Wesley had that possessive, jealous yet sexy ott alpha personality that this author perfects. Even when what he's saying seems like "omg no he didn't.!" you still want to swoon and sigh happily in alpha heaven. 

Then smack him. But no really I loved this installment. Mackenzie kinda took that hard to get to another level but Wesley balanced it out just right. I loved all the family characters. I hated with every cell Edward and Bonnie though. Call me judgemental I don't give a crap but they were evil and gross and I kinda wish several sexual diseases on them both. I really wanted Mackenzie to say adios forever. I mean gross, yuck, ok sorry rant over.
Such an amazing romantic epilogue too.

My safety peeps will love this one.! 💞

The Bitterroot Inn by Devney Perry

This series has touched my heart and climbed right to the tip top of my favorites list. Devney Perry has a voice that resonates so deeply inside her vibrant characters. These people seem so real. Flawed human beings who just want to love and live. From the Coppersmith Farmhouse to this final installment at the Bitterroot Inn I found such simple beautiful and emotional romance. I can't pick favorites because each couple, each character, each child, each parent, each friend all settled deep into my soul as a special little piece of perfection.

Hunter swept Macy away and I fell right along with her. The absolute mystery and terrifying suspenseful angst had me so nervous I could not put this book down.
When the light bulb went off and all the pieces fell into place I had moments of sheer sadness, disappointment and in the end forgiveness and compassion. Not every choice that was made may have been handled in the right order but these people, Hunter, Macy and Coby had to go through everything just to find their happy. What a beautiful happy they found. I feel simply lucky, privileged and so glad I went along for the ride.
