The Air He Breathes by Brittainy Cherry[/ezcol_1third][ezcol_2third_end]The Air He Breathes by Brittainy C. Cherry

Contemporary Romance

My Rating: 5 stars

Read my review

I don’t know how else to say it, but this book is ah-mazing!!  I know that it has been getting a lot of attention lately, but it deserves every last bit of it.  The Air He Breathes is an emotional roller-coaster, written in Brittainy Cherry’s signature style–gorgeous and profound and heartbreaking.  Yes, there is drama, but there is also humor to lighten the heaviness of the story. I can not recommend this one enough!

Some Sort of Happy by Melanie Harlow[/ezcol_1third][ezcol_2third_end]Some Sort of Happy by Melanie Harlow

Contemporary Romance

My Rating: 5 stars

Read my review

Honestly, Some Sort of Happy was a bit of a pleasant surprise for me.  While I enjoyed Frenched, Some Sort of Happy has more depth to the story and characters, which I wasn’t expecting.  It is also sweet, swoony, passionate, light-hearted, and a little angsty.  Sebastian is the first character I have read about that struggles with OCD, so I was intrigued and definitely not disappointed.

Hollywood Dirt by Alessandra Torre[/ezcol_1third][ezcol_2third_end]Hollywood Dirt by Alessandra Torre

Contemporary Romance

My Rating: 5 stars

Read my Review

Hollywood Dirt was so good!  I loved the characters, the story, and the writing.  (In fact, the writing was so good that while I was reading it, I felt like I was watching a movie of a book about a movie.  Make sense?)  It has just the right mix of heat, humor, and relationship build-up.  There’s also good dose of Southern hospitality, a little Hollywood glamour, and a whole lot of sexual tension.  I loved it!

sins of sevin cover[/ezcol_1third][ezcol_2third_end]Sins of Sevin by Penelope Ward

Contemporary Romance

My Rating: 4.5 stars

Sins of Sevin is another emotional roller-coaster, but I loved it.  It’s a story of forbidden love, sacrifice, forgiveness, and redemption.  There are some big, unforeseen twists, and I think I read the second half of the book through a haze of shock.  Fans of Stepbrother Dearest will definitely like this one!

Rhythym Chord & Malykhin[/ezcol_1third][ezcol_2third_end]Rhythm, Chord & Malykhin by Mariana Zapata

Romantic Comedy

My Rating: 4.5 stars

I have said it before, but it deserves to be repeated: Mariana Zapata is the queen of slow-burning romances.  She also does a great job with writing realistic characters who wrestle with real human emotions.  I think the romance in RCM is very sweet and has a great build.  Also, the humor in the book is a huge component to the story, and it totally made my inner 12-year-old happy (and it reminded me of my relationship with my brother and sister).
