“You stand for who you are, what you are, and for family… that’s what you live by.”
“A friend is not a friend, my dear, unless he is a friend at all times.”
Synopsis: Julie Greene loves flings. Loves steamy first dates, sizzling first kisses, and every now and then, that first sexy romp between the sheets. Comfy pants, sleepy Sundays, movie nights on the couch? Shudder. But when Julie gets assigned the hardest story of her career—a first-person account of that magical shift between dating and “I do”—she’ll need a man brave enough to give a total commitment-phobe a chance at more.
Normally, Mitchell Forbes would be exactly that man. A devastatingly hot workaholic who tends to stay in relationships for far too long, he should be the perfect subject for Julie’s “research.” But what Julie doesn’t know is that Mitchell is looking to cut loose for once in his life. And the leggy journalist notorious for avoiding love is exactly the type of no-strings fling he’s looking for. In other words, Mitchell is the polar opposite of what Julie needs right now. And, at the same time, he’s exactly what she wants. Continue reading “Book Review: After the Kiss by Lauren Layne”
Growing up I had the opportunity to read a variety of novels, sometimes sneaking the few romances I could find on my Mum’s bookshelf when I had nothing else to read. While these books had adults falling in love, they did not seem much different than my own juvenile novels and teen romances. There was barely any kissing and certainly nothing more intimate, which I thought nothing of at the time.
Then as I got older, my grandmother would pass on her book subscription boxes to me that she got from Harlequin. And, my goodness, was there some sizzling sex in those! It still had all the story aspect, but there was no question as to what was going on in the bedroom. As I expanded to more genres and more authors I found sex was becoming more frequent in both conversation and action while waiting for marriage started becoming something to ridicule.
It has now reached the point where I wonder if novels are even being written that have Continue reading “Bookish Thoughts: Sex vs Celibacy in Novels and Life”

When I realized just how out of sync I was with the latest book releases a couple months back, I decided to do a little foraging to find some really great reads coming out this year to share with you… And what I found were a whole lot of identical lists of mostly literary fiction.
While I would love to say I am lofty-minded enough to read that genre, I much prefer my novels light and fluffy and fun! I want books that let me escape and cause me swoon over HEAs, rather than make me think deep, serious thoughts. So give me a story like this new adult romance coming out in July!
