Here With Me by Heidi McLaughlin

Here With Me by Heidi McLaughlin

I tend to avoid love triangles; however, this one has a twist. Evan, a Navy SEAL, leaves his pregnant fiancé, Ryley, when deployed on a special mission. When he’s “killed” in the line of duty, Evan’s twin brother, Nate, is there to help Ryley pick up the pieces. Six years later, Evan returns home to find that Ryley and Nate are engaged and his son calls his brother, “Dad.” The premise sounds intriguing. The problem with this story is in its execution.

Sweet Hope by Tillie Cole

Sweet Hope by Tillie Cole

Sweet Hope is the third book in the Sweet Home series and is perhaps my favorite so far. The book deals with themes of guilt and redemption. Elpi and Ally are a true star-crossed pair. Elpi, the intimidating and tortured artist, is in desperate need of a second chance but feels unworthy of salvation. Ally, a carefree museum curator, feels inexplicably connected to Elpi’s work. I really admired her tenacity and unabashed faithfulness. My heart broke for Elpi, and the weight of his shame and his rejection of happiness were overwhelming at times.

Sweet Home by Tillie Cole

Overall, I really enjoyed this sweet college sports romance. I’ve got a soft spot for smart, geeky heroines, and British transplant Molly Shakespeare fits the mold perfectly. Romeo Prince is an alpha male/player wrapped in an NFL-bound star quarterback package. Romeo and Shakespeare. Get it? The two are adorable together, and their attraction is magnetic. Although Romeo frequently comes across as too needy and whiney, the characters are likable, and the story tugs at your heartstrings. I really enjoyed Molly and Rome’s friends. In particular, Texas gal Cass is a hoot!

Suite 269 by Christine Zolendz

This was a fun, quick and dirty little read. Lexa is a fact-checker for a fledgling magazine. Three weeks before her wedding, Lexa walks in on her co-worker, Sophie, riding the bologna pony with her fiancé—aka Trager the Mailroom Guy. Jameson Holt is the editor of the magazine and Sophie’s boyfriend—evidently, it’s one big incestuous playground over at InTrend Magazine.
