New York Times bestselling author Tessa Bailey returns with a unique, sexy romantic comedy about a young married couple whose rocky relationship needs a serious renovation.

Rosie and Dominic Vega are the perfect couple: high school sweethearts, best friends, madly in love. Well, they used to be anyway. Now Rosie’s lucky to get a caveman grunt from the ex-soldier every time she walks in the door. Dom is faithful and a great provider, but the man she fell in love with ten years ago is nowhere to be found. When her girlfriends encourage Rosie to demand more out of life and pursue her dream of opening a restaurant, she decides to demand more out of love, too. Three words: marriage boot camp.

Never in a million years did Rosie believe her stoic, too-manly-to-emote husband would actually agree to relationship rehab with a weed-smoking hippy. Dom talking about feelings? Sitting on pillows? Communing with nature? Learning love languages? Nope. But to her surprise, he’s all in, and it forces her to admit her own role in their cracked foundation. As they complete one ridiculous—yet surprisingly helpful—assignment after another, their remodeled relationship gets stronger than ever. Except just as they’re getting back on track, Rosie discovers Dom has a secret... and it could demolish everything. (Goodreads)

Soooo, I read the first book in this series, Fix Her Up, earlier this year and absolutely LOVED IT! It was my very first read by Tessa Bailey, and I am now HOOKED. I am most definitely looking forward to continuing along with this series as soon as possible!

Braden Mack thinks reading romance novels makes him an expert in love, but he’ll soon discover that real life is better than fiction.

Liv Papandreas has a dream job as a sous chef at Nashville’s hottest restaurant. Too bad the celebrity chef owner is less than charming behind kitchen doors. After she catches him harassing a young hostess, she confronts him and gets fired. Liv vows revenge, but she’ll need assistance to take on the powerful chef.

Unfortunately, that means turning to Braden Mack. When Liv’s blackballed from the restaurant scene, the charismatic nightclub entrepreneur offers to help expose her ex-boss, but she is suspicious of his motives. He’ll need to call in reinforcements: the Bromance Book Club.

Inspired by the romantic suspense novel they’re reading, the book club assist Liv in setting up a sting operation to take down the chef. But they’re just as eager to help Mack figure out the way to Liv’s heart… even while she’s determined to squelch the sparks between them before she gets burned. (Goodreads)

And the first book in this series, The Bromance Book Club, was just recently released, and it's another book that had me completely hooked! I absolutely can't wait to read the sequel as well!

Happy Monday, Bookworms!!

Are there any December releases that you're super excited for?? It's not going to be a huge month for new books, but there are quite a few that I'm really excited for! A few of these I have already preordered, and the others I have on hold at the library, and I'm super excited to read them all. :)

Here are a few I'm looking forward to!

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/39122774-children-of-virtue-and-vengeance

After battling the impossible, Zélie and Amari have finally succeeded in bringing magic back to the land of Orïsha. But the ritual was more powerful than they could’ve imagined, reigniting the powers of not only the maji, but of nobles with magic ancestry, too.

Now, Zélie struggles to unite the maji in an Orïsha where the enemy is just as powerful as they are. But when the monarchy and military unite to keep control of Orïsha, Zélie must fight to secure Amari's right to the throne and protect the new maji from the monarchy's wrath.

With civil war looming on the horizon, Zélie finds herself at a breaking point: she must discover a way to bring the kingdom together or watch as Orïsha tears itself apart.

Children of Virtue and Vengeance is the stunning sequel to Tomi Adeyemi's New York Times bestselling debut Children of Blood and Bone, the first title in her Legacy of Orïsha trilogy.

Dangerous Alliance
by Jennieke Cohen

Add to Goodreads


The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue meets Jane Austen in this witty, winking historical romance with a dash of mystery!

Lady Victoria Aston has everything she could want: an older sister happily wed, the future of her family estate secure, and ample opportunity to while her time away in the fields around her home.

But now Vicky must marry—or find herself and her family destitute. Armed only with the wisdom she has gained from her beloved novels by Jane Austen, she enters society’s treacherous season.

Sadly, Miss Austen has little to say about Vicky’s exact circumstances: whether the roguish Mr. Carmichael is indeed a scoundrel, if her former best friend, Tom Sherborne, is out for her dowry or for her heart, or even how to fend off the attentions of the foppish Mr. Silby, he of the unfortunate fashion sensibility.

Most unfortunately of all, Vicky’s books are silent on the topic of the mysterious accidents cropping up around her…ones that could prevent her from surviving until her wedding day.

Maxwell has finally met an opponent that he can't best in this new football romance from the author of Fumbled.

According to Brynn Larson, Maxwell Lewis is more trouble than he's worth. She doesn't care if he's a football god with a rock-hard body that brings most women to their knees. After an encounter that ends poorly, she's not interested in giving him a second chance. The last thing Brynn expects is for him to turn up at her bar months later, hat in hand. It doesn't matter if he brings more customers to her business--she's still not going on a date with him.

Maxwell knows he made a mistake. He'd been waiting to make his move on Brynn since the day he laid eyes on her and he was finally ready to go for it until he screwed up. He wishes he could tell her the truth about what happened that night, but he just can't. He can't tell anyone, so he'll make amends and hope she'll forgive him.

Brynn's not like other women, though. Playing for the Mustangs doesn't impress her and gifts make her scoff. Max will have to bring his A game if he hopes to win her over.

Would Like to Meet
by Rachel Winters

Add to Goodreads


In this charming, feel-good debut novel, a cynical assistant at a screenwriting agency must reenact the meet-cute scenes from classic romantic comedy movies in order to help her #1 client get his scriptwriting mojo back--but can a real-life meet-cute be in store for someone who doesn't believe in happily ever after?

After seven years as an assistant, 29-year-old Evie Summers is ready to finally get the promotion she deserves. But now the TV and film agency she's been running behind the scenes is in trouble, and Evie will lose her job unless she can convince the agency's biggest and most arrogant client, Ezra Chester, to finish writing the script for a Hollywood romantic comedy.

The catch? Ezra is suffering from writer's block--and he'll only put pen to paper if singleton Evie can prove to him that you can fall in love like they do in the movies. With the future of the agency in jeopardy, Evie embarks on a mission to meet a man the way Sally met Harry or Hugh Grant met Julia Roberts.

But in the course of testing out the meet-cute scenes from classic romantic comedies IRL, not only will Evie encounter one humiliating situation after another, but she'll have to confront the romantic past that soured her on love. In a novel as hilarious as it is heartwarming, debut author Rachel Winters proves that sometimes real life is better than the movies--and that the best kind of meet-cutes happen when you least expect them.

Husband Material
by Emily Belden

Add to Goodreads


Sometimes love is unpredictable…

Twenty-nine-year-old Charlotte Rosen has a secret: she’s a widow. Ever since the fateful day that leveled her world, Charlotte has worked hard to move forward. Great job at a hot social media analytics company? Check. Roommate with no knowledge of her past? Check. Adorable dog? Check. All the while, she’s faithfully data-crunched her way through life, calculating the probability of risk—so she can avoid it.

Yet Charlotte’s algorithms could never have predicted that her late husband’s ashes would land squarely on her doorstep five years later. Stunned but determined, Charlotte sets out to find meaning in this sudden twist of fate, even if that includes facing her perfectly coiffed, and perfectly difficult, ex-mother-in-law—and her husband’s best friend, who seems to become a fixture at her side whether she likes it or not.

But soon a shocking secret surfaces, forcing Charlotte to answer questions she never knew to ask and to consider the possibility of forgiveness. And when a chance at new love arises, she’ll have to decide once and for all whether to follow the numbers or trust her heart.

by Melissa Ferguson

Add to Goodreads

Amazon | Barnes & Noble | The Book Depository

Just when you think you’ve met your match . . . the charade begins.

Cassie Everson is an expert at escaping bad first dates. And, after years of meeting, greeting, and running from the men who try to woo her, Cassie is almost ready to retire her hopes for a husband—and children—altogether.

But fate has other plans, and Cassie’s online dating profile catches the eye of firefighter Jett Bentley. In Jett’s memory, Cassie Everson is the unreachable girl-of-legend from their high school days. Nervously, he messages her, setting off a chain of events that forces a reluctant Cassie back into the dating game.

No one is more surprised than Cassie when her first date with Jett is a knockout. But when they both go home and find three children dropped in their laps—each—they independently decide to do the right and mature thing: hide the kids from each other while sorting it all out. What could go wrong?

Melissa Ferguson’s hilarious and warmhearted debut reminds us that love can come in very small packages—and that sometimes our best-laid plans aren’t nearly as rewarding and fun as the surprises that come our way.

by Virginia Kantra

Add to Goodreads


The timeless classic Little Women inspired this heartwarming modern tale of four sisters from New York Times bestselling author Virginia Kantra.

The March sisters--reliable Meg, independent Jo, stylish Amy, and shy Beth--have grown up to pursue their separate dreams. When Jo followed her ambitions to New York City, she never thought her career in journalism would come crashing down, leaving her struggling to stay afloat in a gig economy as a prep cook and secret food blogger.

Meg appears to have the life she always planned--the handsome husband, the adorable toddlers, the house in a charming subdivision. But sometimes getting everything you've ever wanted isn't all it's cracked up to be.

When their mother's illness forces the sisters home to North Carolina for the holidays, they'll rediscover what really matters.

One thing's for sure--they'll need the strength of family and the power of sisterhood to remake their lives and reimagine their dreams.

As of today it is officially the last month of the last year in this decade! Wow, that's pretty insane to think about!

Since I had so much success with Blogtober this past October, I've decided to do Blogmas this month! I have a lot of great blog post ideas picked out, and I'm going to try to get caught up on some reviews I'm behind on, so it should be fun! (I probably won't post every day like I did in October. That was exhausting!)

A fresh, irresistible rom-com from debut author Emma Lord about the chances we take, the paths life can lead us on, and how love can be found in the opposite place you expected.

Meet Pepper, swim team captain, chronic overachiever, and all-around perfectionist. Her family may be falling apart, but their massive fast-food chain is booming ― mainly thanks to Pepper, who is barely managing to juggle real life while secretly running Big League Burger’s massive Twitter account.

Enter Jack, class clown and constant thorn in Pepper’s side. When he isn’t trying to duck out of his obscenely popular twin’s shadow, he’s busy working in his family’s deli. His relationship with the business that holds his future might be love/hate, but when Big League Burger steals his grandma’s iconic grilled cheese recipe, he’ll do whatever it takes to take them down, one tweet at a time.

All’s fair in love and cheese ― that is, until Pepper and Jack’s spat turns into a viral Twitter war. Little do they know, while they’re publicly duking it out with snarky memes and retweet battles, they’re also falling for each other in real life ― on an anonymous chat app Jack built.

As their relationship deepens and their online shenanigans escalate ― people on the internet are shipping them?? ― their battle gets more and more personal, until even these two rivals can’t ignore they were destined for the most unexpected, awkward, all-the-feels romance that neither of them expected. (Goodreads)

This new book by EMMA LORD, not to be mistaken as Emery Lord, sounds like it's going to be a super cute read! I love cute reads at the moment, so I'm very excited to check this one out!

How To Lose a Guy in 10 Days gets a millennial makeover in this romantic comedy by USA Today bestselling author Andie J. Christopher.

Jack Nolan is a gentleman, a journalist, and unlucky in love. His viral success has pigeon-holed him as the how-to guy for a buzzy, internet media company instead of covering hard-hitting politics. Fed up with his fluffy articles and the app-based dating scene as well, he strikes a deal with his boss to write a final piece de resistance: How to Lose a Girl. Easier said than done when the girl he meets is Hannah Mayfield, and he's not sure he wants her to dump him.

Hannah is an extremely successful event planner who's focused on climbing the career ladder. Her firm is one of the most prestigious in the city, and she's determined to secure her next promotion. But Hannah has a bit of an image problem. She needs to show her boss that she has range, including planning dreaded, romantic weddings. Enter Jack. He’s the perfect man to date for a couple weeks to prove to her boss that she’s not scared of feelings.

Before Jack and Hannah know it, their fake relationship starts to feel all too real—and neither of them can stand to lose each other. (Goodreads)


If you know me at all then you know I am a sucker for a good rom-com novel, and once I discovered Not The Girl You Marry, I knew I would have to check it out!

Not the Girl You Marry was described as How To Lose A Guy in 10 Days with a millennial makeover, and I was super curious to get the authors version of the story. I watched the movie a few years back, and while I didn’t love it too much, I still appreciated the storyline, and I was curious to see how this book would compare. While I had a few issues with the book, I found it to be a fun, steamy read!

Here’s what I liked about the book:

First, it has some pretty great characters. I loved Hannah. She was smart and witty, yet sometimes a bit shy and modest. I loved her snarky attitude and how fearless she seemed. Her roommate, Sasha, was pretty awesome as well. Can we all have a friend like Sasha??

I also liked the storyline for the book, but I didn’t LOVE it. Without spoiling anything, I’ll say that both of the main characters were lying throughout the book for their jobs, which is fine and is a storyline that I have read over and over again. Unfortunately I didn’t love most of Jack’s storyline…

Which leads to what I didn’t like about the book:

So, I really, really wanted to like Jack. There were some times in the book where he seemed likable, but then he would do something completely stupid in order to try to 'lose' Hannah for his job. Call me old fashioned, but some of the things Jack did were really awful, and I had a hard time separating the ‘job’ Jack from the ‘real’ Jack. Maybe it’s because I’m hard to forgive, but he really pissed me off with the way he treated her, even if it was for work, and I had a hard time looking past that by the end of the book.

(That being said I did love his family!)

Overall; While I did have a few issues with Jack’s behavior in the story, I did still find this to be a fun read, and I definitely plan to check out Andie’s next book, Not That Kind of Guy, which is about Jack’s sister, Bridget, and set to release in April 2020! (I can’t wait! I loved Bridget!) If you’re looking for a steamy rom-com, do check this out!

The highly anticipated sequel to the New York Times bestselling thriller everyone is talking about, One of Us Is Lying! There's a new mystery to solve at Bayview High, and there's a whole new set of rules.

Come on, Bayview, you know you've missed this.

A ton of copycat gossip apps have popped up since Simon died, but in the year since the Bayview four were cleared of his shocking death, no one's been able to fill the gossip void quite like he could. The problem is no one has the facts.

Until now.

This time it's not an app, though—it's a game.

Truth or Dare.

Phoebe's the first target. If you choose not to play, it's a truth. And hers is dark.

Then comes Maeve and she should know better—always choose the dare.

But by the time Knox is about to be tagged, things have gotten dangerous. The dares have become deadly, and if Maeve learned anything from Bronwyn last year, it's that they can't count on the police for help. Or protection.

Simon's gone, but someone's determined to keep his legacy at Bayview High alive. And this time, there's a whole new set of rules. (Goodreads)

You guys! Not only are we getting a TV show for One of Us is Lying...
we are ALSO getting a Sequel!!

I, for one, am SUPER excited about this book.
I loved the first one, and I can't wait to see what's in store for us next.

10 Movies I'll Be Watching This Fall!

Happy Saturday, Bookworms!!

Do you like watching movies in the fall??

Now that Halloween is over and I've gotten all the Halloween themed movies out of my system, it's time to focus on what little bit of fall we have left! I love watching movies in the fall, maybe even more than I love to watch movies any other time of year. (Except October.) *Grin*

Here are a few of the movies I'm planning to watch this month!

This is my most favorite movie ever, and I usually watch it any time of year, but I LOVE the fall scenes in this movie! Who can resist a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils??

I only just watched this movie for the first time a few years ago, but I really liked it, and I'm totally going to watch it again this year! (And again for New Years!)

This is another of my most favorite movies, and I usually start watching it around Thanksgivings to get me in the mood for Christmas!

The Lake House
This is not really a fall movie either, but it has some pretty amazing fall scenery!

Addams Family Values
Though I watch this around Halloween-time, I also end up watching it around Thanksgiving as well! Who can resist Pugsley dressed as a turkey!

Harry Potter
The Harry Potter movies have some pretty great fall scenes in them as well!!

Planes, Trains and Automobiles
This is another movie that I have only seen a few times, but I'm definitely going to watch it again this year! I love Steve Martin and John Candy!

Son-in-Law
We usually end up watching this movie every Thanksgiving, mostly because my husband thinks it's hilarious. :)

Charlie Brown Thanksgiving & Garfield's Thanksgiving

And I had to throw in a few favorites from my childhood as well!
