What does one do when your mind says go but your heart says stay?

they hope to have their happily ever after - She's Everything (Hopelessly Devoted #4) by Gen Ryan

"The title may be she’s everything, but this book is everything. It was perfect. It had everything you wanted and needed from this series. I laughed, I cried, I loved." - Megan, Goodreads

the best ones are rewritten - The Sphinx by Jessica Cage

"LOVED this book! [...] This has the perfect mix of paranormal mixed into the retellings of Greek history. Action packed with a love story! Jessica Cage is a new author to me and I look forward to reading more of her stories. This is definitely an intriguing page turner. You won’t want to miss The Sphinx!" Kelly, Goodreads

beyond his limits - The Emergent Threat (War Eternal #2) by J.F. Cain

"The Emergent Threat by J.F. Cain is, in its own quiet way, a masterful presentation of biblical mythology and the duality of spiritual life. [...] The way the universe is put together is very well thought out, and the plot and subplots are written with the deft pen of a master. J.F. Cain should be very proud of this novel and I hope the series goes on for a long time." - Ray, Goodreads

Book Tour Grand Finale for Bachelor Remedy (Seasons of Alaska #5) by Carol Ross

Welcome, welcome! I’m so excited to once again be on tour with Prism Book Tours. Bachelor Remedy is the fifth book in my Seasons of Alaska series. The hero, Tag James, has made a guest appearance in every previous book. In addition to his reluctant status in Rankins as the town’s Most Eligible Bachelor, he also has the distinction of being my Character Most Requested to Get His Own Story. Tag is everyone’s favorite – in his world and mine! When I set out to find a heroine to win his heart I knew she’d have to be really special - and a little unexpected. I think Ally is his perfect match, even if they do get off to a rather, er, muddy start. I hope you enjoy Tag and Ally’s story! Ally my best, Carol- Launch - Note from the Author

This is the story of a beautiful lifetime love of Anna and Robert, which will capture your heart from the beginning until the end." - Joe, Goodreads

a jaded troll and an innocent mortal - Forsaken Norse Wind (The Forsaken #4) by Ciara Lake

18++ "I was completely caught up in this story from the very beginning and I must say that I enjoyed it much more than the other one I read although I didn’t mention the wedding that took place in it, I just want to give the author lots of applause for her creative and inspiring weddings and I have to say I can’t wait to read the next one." - Eva, Goodreads

a bit more recklessly than they should - Zagreb, Milan, Nice, Barcelona (The summer of heartache and fickleness ) by Maya Berger

"A wonderfully-written travel book. When I first saw the title in itself, I knew this was gonna be a fun book. And I was right. Not only are the places, food, and elements well-described, the characters are also very colorful as well. A group of friends, each with their own quirks and personalities." - Dawn, Goodreads

she wants to be something she already is - Princess Nevaeh by Paulette Harper

"Anyone who has young children around, parents, grandparents, caretakers, or foster parents, should consider this book for the library of their children. It has the feel of a book they’ll want to read (or have read to them!) over and over again. It's encouraging as well as educational! Nicely-done!" - Marguerite, Goodreads

"So fun! This era is definitely one of the more fun ones to read about. The author was super consistent in the language, making sure it sounded authentic. The characters had witty banter and enjoyable interactions. Hazel is a girl you would follow into the apocalypse." Hannah, Goodreads

No hope - Reyet Trap (Torch World #2) by Dee Garretson

"The story was told in a very descriptive language. [...] Dee Garretson is a very good storyteller. The only indication that this book is a YA is because of the main characters but other than that it is a very good sci-fi read not just for kids but for all ages. This was a good trip to outer space and I really enjoyed meeting Mags. " - iamnotabookworm, Goodreads (about book #1)

why people keep... Secrets? by A.L. Simpson

18+ "The emotions that are stirred up by the events in the story are so real. You feel every emotion whether it is fear, anger, happiness, excitement or confusion, each emotion takes up residence in your heart. A sign of an author doing their job well! " Robyn, Goodreads

twists and turns - Broken Series by A.L. Simpson

18+ "I can't recommend this book enough to everyone. The storyline is creative and has lots of twists and turns, it is also believable which is so important. There is a sweet love story, a hope for brighter and better things and lots of life lessons." - Robyn, Goodreads

hopelessly trapped - Tribal Affairs by Matt Dallmann

"The book holds a steady pace, never drifting into long-winded explanations or descriptions. Every scene sits and carries the action along. It's not always high-tension, but it's still grabbing and makes this a tale hard to put down. It's easy to get lost in Liana and Dahlia, and sympathize with them. The other characters do not share this same depth and come across shallow. But this doesn't disrupt the flow." - Tonja, Goodreads

clever and enjoyable - Quinn (Pendleton Petticoats #9) by Shanna Hatfield

"The story was great! I enjoyed the tidbits of history throughout it. The romance had me swooning and the danger had my heart clenching. I didn’t want to stop reading!" Shash, Goodreads

Retribution or redemption? - The Reckless Warrior by Jennifer Youngblood

"I love books about redemption! Especially when they include suspense, sweet romance, and a happy ending! [...]
The Reckless Warrior fits perfectly into her collection of romantic hits!" - Kimberly, Amazon

the ultimate prize - The Weekend Bucket List by Mia Kerick

"Mostly, The Weekend Bucket List is without artifice, showing readers of any age, why genuineness is the core of happiness. The novel reaches for a lot and exceeded my expectations; a fun, clear-eyed view of three headstrong souls who come of age, by supporting one another." - Annie M. Goodreads

Does this bother you? - Wishing Well by Lily White

18+ "I was legit blown away. I really don't know what else to say about it. It was an amazing book from beginning to the end. So much so that I kind of want to start right back at the beginning and read it again. So much so I want another book so I can continue enjoying these characters. Therefore, it will come as NO surprise that yours truly is going to give this one two HUGE thumbs up." - Eve, Goodreads

Next book, please - Nite Fire series by C.L. Schneider

The story pulls you along with its twists and its great characters, and I would definitely approve reading it.
Next book, please." - K.S.Marsden, Goodreads

is anyone willing to listen? - The Phoenix Cycle by Bob Collopy

"The plot is fascinating and the characters are pretty well-developed. As a reader of Philosophy, I really appreciated the thought that the author put into incorporating it so seamlessly into the book (i.e. Plato's cave). There were a few moments where I had to stop reading in order to keep the story straight, but the author definitely does a great job of tying it all together at the end. " - Valentina, Goodreads

When the line between right and wrong is blurred - The Shepherd's Calculus by C.S. Farrelly

It has realistic characters, and a believable political and religious opportunistic pairing with enough drama and intriguing plot twists that will keep the reader engaged and turning the pages until the surprising conclusion." Kathleen, Goodreads


Trigger Warnings about rape 
"Heartaches: Bad Boy Vibes by H.M. Irwing is an emotional roller coaster. It’s definitely not what I had expected from the title, and I’m actually glad for that. It’s not just another “girl falls for a bad boy who breaks her heart” kind of story, but an actual novel with emotional depth and enough twists and turns in the plot to keep the reader guessing what would happen next." - Stephanie, Goodreads

Peter Clancy is back - Dark Water ( Peter Clancy#4) by T.W. Lawless

"Having been lucky enough to read all three books in this series now, it's pleasing to know there's a fourth on the way. If you've not been lucky enough yet to dip into these little gems, then you really should rectify that situation as soon as possible." KAREN about book #3, Goodreads

We all wear various masks for different situations. - Mask: Shadow (Masks) by Joseph VanBuren

"Mask: Shadow lives up to its name, giving you shadows and silhouettes of meaning. Everything is a conspiracy and everyone is out to get you. I can't wait for the other books and sound tracks to drop and fill out these shadows!" - Keifer, Goodreads

What is your moral compass? - No Fury Like That by Lisa de Nikolits

"No Fury Like That is a fun read that sneaks up on you with surprising moments of profound insight and tender emotion. [...] The witty dialogue and quirky humor are offset by the serious undertone questioning life, death, our relationships, and what it all means. This is definitely one of those stories that will stick with me for a long time." Darcia, Goodreads
