Save Your Breath by Melinda Leigh- Book Review

I’ve started my month of thrillers with this book. This is the 6th book in the Morgan Dane series by Melinda Leigh. I have thoroughly enjoyed every book in this series and this one did not disappoint. I still love the characters from Morgan, Lance and Sharp to a newer character who is Olivia. It’s easy thriller read that is also hard for me to put down so I was able to read this book within two nights. It had me guessing until the very end. If you haven’t read this series then definitely give it a try. I was able to read this one for free through Kindle Unlimited. I give this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. I already can’t wait for the next book.

Synopsis:

When true-crime writer Olivia Cruz disappears with no signs of foul play, her new boyfriend, Lincoln Sharp, suspects the worst. He knows she didn’t leave willingly and turns to attorney Morgan Dane and PI Lance Kruger to find her before it’s too late.

As they dig through Olivia’s life, they are shocked to discover a connection between her current book research on two cold murder cases and the suicide of one of Morgan’s prospective clients.

As Morgan and Lance investigate, the number of suspects grows, but time is running out to find Olivia alive. When danger comes knocking at their door, Morgan and Lance realize that they may be the killer’s next targets.

Hello October

For the month of September I read romantic comedies but now that it’s October, and my favorite month of the year, I’m only reading thrillers. Thrillers and suspense novels are my favorite. Here are a few thrillers I’ve read and absolutely loved. What are some thrillers you have enjoyed?

Matchmaking for Beginners by Maddie Dawson- Book Review

Matchmaking for Beginners was a cute book. It took me a little while to get into the story but thought it was cute none the less. I loved the character Blitz. I found her so refreshing and loved her carefree personality. I honestly think she made the story. Marnie the main character wasn’t my favorite, I felt like the lacked some depth and was continuously indecisive which was quite frustrating at time. Over all the book was cute but not one of my favorites. I give this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️. Thankfully I was able to read it for free through Kindle Unlimited.

Synopsis:

Marnie MacGraw wants an ordinary life—a husband, kids, and a minivan in the suburbs. Now that she’s marrying the man of her dreams, she’s sure this is the life she’ll get. Then Marnie meets Blix Holliday, her fiancé’s irascible matchmaking great-aunt who’s dying, and everything changes—just as Blix told her it would.

When her marriage ends after two miserable weeks, Marnie is understandably shocked. She’s even more astonished to find that she’s inherited Blix’s Brooklyn brownstone along with all of Blix’s unfinished “projects”: the heartbroken, oddball friends and neighbors running from happiness. Marnie doesn’t believe she’s anything special, but Blix somehow knew she was the perfect person to follow in her matchmaker footsteps.

And Blix was also right about some things Marnie must learn the hard way: love is hard to recognize, and the ones who push love away often are the ones who need it most.

The Friend Zone by Abby Jimenez- Book Review

I am continuing by romantic comedy read this month and stumbled on the this book. Once again, I’m loving these female leads in the books I’ve been reading lately. The main character in this book is Kristen and she doesn’t put up shit and I love it. From the very beginning she calls it like she sees it which is extremely relatable. I would compare her to an onion and not in a bad way but because there are many layers to her and she has history that is heartbreaking. I also loved the character Josh, I mean who doesn’t enjoy reading about a good looking, smart, humorous firefighter. 😂 I give this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️💫. It was a fun read but thought that a few parts in the story kind of veered away from the story as a whole.

Synopsis:

Kristen Peterson doesn’t do drama, will fight to the death for her friends, and has no room in her life for guys who just don’t get her. She’s also keeping a big secret: facing a medically necessary procedure that will make it impossible for her to have children.
Planning her best friend’s wedding is bittersweet for Kristen — especially when she meets the best man, Josh Copeland. He’s funny, sexy, never offended by her mile-wide streak of sarcasm, and always one chicken enchilada ahead of her hangry. Even her dog, Stuntman Mike, adores him. The only catch: Josh wants a big family someday. Kristen knows he’d be better off with someone else, but as their attraction grows, it’s harder and harder to keep him at arm’s length.
The Friend Zone will have you laughing one moment and grabbing for tissues the next as it tackles the realities of infertility and loss with wit, heart, and a lot of sass.

Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating by Christina Lauren- Book Review

I’ve been on a Christina Lauren kick this month so since I love The Unhoneymooners I decide to read some of her other books. This is probably by second favorite book by Christina Lauren. I absolutely loved the main character Hazel. She was funny, witty, intelligent and extremely relatable. I loved this history and awkwardness between them. The story was so fun and took on multiple dates but not between the two of them but them pairing each other with blind dates. It was the perfect romantic comedy that makes you laugh out loud and makes you root for both Hazel and Josh. I give this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. If you are looking for a fun, easy going and laugh out loud read then definitely pick this one up.

Synopsis:

Hazel Camille Bradford knows she’s a lot to take—and frankly, most men aren’t up to the challenge. If her army of pets and thrill for the absurd don’t send them running, her lack of filter means she’ll say exactly the wrong thing in a delicate moment. Their loss. She’s a good soul in search of honest fun. Josh Im has known Hazel since college, where her zany playfulness proved completely incompatible with his mellow restraint. From the first night they met—when she gracelessly threw up on his shoes—to when she sent him an unintelligible email while in a post-surgical haze, Josh has always thought of Hazel more as a spectacle than a peer. But now, ten years later, after a cheating girlfriend has turned his life upside down, going out with Hazel is a breath of fresh air. Not that Josh and Hazel date. At least, not each other. Because setting each other up on progressively terrible double blind dates means there’s nothing between them…right?

HAPPEE BIRTHDAE!

We have a birthday coming up next week. Our youngest and our last is going to be 1 next Friday so my husband and I put together a cute photo shoot for her. We are doing a Harry Potter Birthday party since she’s one and doesn’t know the difference and honestly doesn’t care. 😂 So the theme of the party is more for us but that doesn’t mean we can’t make it super cute and fun. Here is a sneak peak into her smash cake.
