12 Romance Reads for February 2023
When the Farmer Met the City Girl by Jessa Kane
A city "angel" is rescued by a big ole farmer named Dusty. He's over the top obsessed. Another classic Jessa Kane story.
Lost in the Mountains by Olivia T. Turner
Another city girl meets a giant mountain man after she's stranded during a storm. Age gap bonus!
Auctioned to the Pack Alpha by Olivia T. Turner
Bear shifter cowboy who steals girl from the auction. Lion shifters also (though they get their butt whooped by our hero). A lot to process in this one despite its length (some things were a little too quick/WTF, but nothing to stop me from reading haha).
The Viscount's Obsession by Viola Grey
LOVE THE NEURODIVERGENT HERO. Short and steamy (this was the length Earls Prize Curves was supposed to be until I just kept writing haha).
Take My Daddy, I'll Take Yours by Jenika Snow
This title says it all. Very steamy. Awkward moments around her *actual* dad, though.
Little Bird by Jenika Snow
Typical Jenika Snow sex (which is always HOT). But the heroine annoyed the heck out of me. First, she's naive "I'm a virgin, I don't know anything" then she's not. Very erratic and immature (but guess that's what happens when a book starts with a 15-year-old heroine and then moves forward--very slowly--until she's 20).
Small Town Girl by Alexa Riley
If you know me, then you know Alexa Riley is my #authorgoals for Hallie Bennett. A small-town girl meets a COO who instantly becomes obsessed with her.
A Baby for the Firefighter by Fern Fraser
DNF after 1st Chapter; skimmed the rest for ⭐️⭐️
I wanted to like this, but I couldn't connect with the writing for some reason.
One Shot with the Soldier by Ellen Brooks
Very sweet and steamy story between an injured veteran and a sunshine teacher. Age gap and cute banter.
Scars & Stripes by Kat Baxter
Embarrassing past history leads to an awkward reunion. Really enjoyed this story about a veteran dealing with prosthetics reuniting with his past tutor/girl he thought was too good for him who's now his physical therapist.
Romancing the Silver Fox by Khloe Summers
Wanted to love this more, but couldn't really connect with the writing style. The repetitive scenes from other books in the series and mentions of authors and "patting yourself on the back in your own book" kind of stuff annoyed me (but that's a personal thing lol). Age gap and curvy girl tropes.
Romancing the Sheriff by Mia Brody
This suffered from the same issues as Romancing the Silver Fox as far as repetitiveness and "self-accolades", but overall it was better done for me so I enjoyed it more. An awkward curvy girl meets the hot sheriff with a pinch of an ex-girlfriend trying to cause trouble.
