Riven Knight (Gypsy Kings #2) by Devney Perry @DevneyPerry

Jumping back into Clifton Forge and the surprising marriage of Isaiah and Genevieve was like coming home to friends. The way Devney breathed life into these characters is just a testament of her incredible talent.
There's so many secrets, layers and layers of earth shattering secrets. This couple had a mountain to climb. A fake marriage, murder, crazy enemies and two broken hearts. There's so much pain,guilt and sadness heaped into a small bud of hope that it took so much patience and tenderness to get that little leaf to reach for the sun..

When Isaiah let go and tried to give his heart you'll realize not everything is as it seems. This man, this beautifully 💔 broken man will teach you a thing or two about how hard it is to forgive yourself when everyone else has already forgave you.

I never wanted to reach in a book and hug a character so much then when Isaiah shared his nightmare with Genevieve. His soul had scars and those scars still painfully wept. When he let his heart breathe again oh how much love this man had pouring from the cracks in his battered heart  

Genevieve had a heart of pure grace. Her steadfast and tender touch gave Isaiah exactly what he needed. 

There's a connection to Isaiah that crazy Devney Perry and her magical imagination weaves into this exhilarating story and when you realized that connection please tell me if it brings you to your knees like the moment it hit me. Probably the last time I got a shock like that was when Jacob imprinted on Renesmee 🤯. 
Mind-blowing moment, truly. 

I must've sat and stared at the wall 5 full minutes with my mouth hanging open.

 I must be crazy but not once did it even cross my mind in Gypsy King. Not once did it even start to dawn on me till that moment. 

Isaiah's past weaves a tale of tattered hearts and tragic dreams. Genevieve gives him love that adds a pure and healing chapter that goes into forever. 
The way all of the secrets of so many people affected every person in some way is just so intriguing. My heart wept so many times. 
Oh Draven.. Sigh. 
Needless to say I loved this so much! Even with my heart being torn open and put back together. 
The characters in this series are so full of secrets, mystery and life that I simply wish I could have the next story right now.

The narrator did a fantastic job. Inflection, tone and emotion came through great. The different voices of the many different characters was amazing.

The trauma that both Matthew and Eden lived through was something out of your worst nightmare.
The evil that exists in the world back then was portrayed in a terrifying way.
The Sebastian Brothers were evil personified.
Matthew had to show such bravery and perseverance. Eden lived through something that would normally break the strongest man. She had steel running through her veins.
I normally have a hard time with widower stories as I feel the hero doesn't let go and give the heroine a real chance to show their love is just as important. Matthew did struggle yet the way that these two fell into an amazing friendship first proved that love can bloom and grow anywhere.

That if you open a window in your heart, the light of love will fill all the cracks and spaces yet the people who live there aren't gone. They just live among the memories and in the new light of love.

This was beautiful, this was suspenseful and this was just everything I love in a romance.
Again Catherine Anderson proves she's a queen.

Dustwalker by Tiffany Roberts @TiffanyRobertsF

Wow I love post apocalypse stories. This felt like I was in this world with Laura and Ronan. So much suspense and excitement. There was some parts that had my heart beating out of my chest.
Then there were some heart wrenching scenes that had tears welling. But the best was how these two fell in love and wasn't afraid of it. 

Ronan wasn't shying away from his feelings (first he had to acknowledge that he had feelings when "Bots" weren't supposed to) he was pretty sweet and sexy. 🔥 💞💗

Then there was humor.. A robot with a funny side? 

“Smart ass.” 

“My ass is, at best, 
of average intelligence.”

Sign me up! 💞 

I adored that there wasn't any unnecessary issues like other women drama or anything like that. I loved that Ronan saw purpose in simply loving Laura. Humanity isn't just beating hearts. It's compassion, empathy and cherishing those you care about.

Ronan was more human than some who had all the necessary parts..
I can't wait to see how this series progresses.

*This was an audible escape version. Unabridged and the two narrators were amazing. The inflection and tone in the various characters were spot on. I definitely recommend that anyone who loves Sci-fi (not just romance) should give this a go.
*It's also available in Kindle Unlimited with Audio so you can switch back and forth.

Virgin River (Virgin River #1) by Robyn Carr

Oh wow.
I started this as my last challenge read of 2019 but with life's time restrictions I didn't get to finish it till today.

I'm glad I pushed through. I'm glad I stepped out of my comfort zone and have Jack a chance. After Charmaine left the picture he was all in. He even knew it before he acted. He knew it before Mel even noticed him as a man. 
Mel was strong even in her weakness. Trying to move on but not actually move on in an important way was just hard. Living life for everyone else well it can drain you. Jack saw something in Mel she didn't think was possible.

Future, hope, love and life.
He didn't give up. These two and this whole town stole my heart.

I loved it.

Securing the Odds by Sarah Curtis @SarahCurtisAthr

 ✨ 🌟 ✨ 🌟
My first read I finished this year was great. I have had a rough time finding time to physically read in 2019. I mostly had audio books. Sarah started this year off great.

 I loved the sexy sweetness of this sassy yet suspenseful read. Tammy and Jake met 2 yrs prior and he's never forgotten her. When she is in trouble he steps in and there's no going back. This is one really enjoyable read that is smooth reading, no angst from the relationship and a perfect hero. 
Checked all my boxes.
