Review:  If You Were Mine by Melanie Harlow

Gotta’ hand it to Melanie Harlow – she does a brilliant job with wounded, bad boy heroes and her books give me unexpected feels EVERY. DANG.

Highly enjoyable, this standalone semi-angsty contemporary romance was a perfect winter themed read. Elementary school art teacher Claire French unlucky with love.  It’s not […]

However, the Fantasy comes through just […]

Oh where or where did November go?  Better yet – WHERE HAS 2017 GONE!?!  Hard to believe we’re just four weeks away from kicking off 2018.  November was an up-and-down month with everything either going top-of-the-world great or everything-is-on-fire […]
