A Little Romance

Yellow book cover for The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren

At her sister’s wedding, only two people avoid food poisoning: Olive herself and Ethan, a snobby jerk Olive despises. Persuaded to take the nonrefundable Hawaii honeymoon, they pose as the newlyweds. I smiled all the way through this enemies-to-lovers story; it came alive with sharp dialogue, madcap situations, and compelling emotions.

Book cover The Flatshare by Beth O'Leary

They’ve never met in person but they share an apartment—and a bed!--in expensive England. Unusual, right? But it was the unusual characters who kept me engaged. She’s finding her own strength after an emotionally abusive relationship, and he’s a rare animal in Romancelandia: a likeable beta hero.

Book cover Love Me Whole by Nicky James

This is an outstanding romance by an Ontario writer - Nicky James. When Vaughn strikes up a friendship with shy Oryn, he doesn’t realize there are five more people to meet: Oryn suffers from dissociative identity disorder. Sensitive, compassionate, and complex, this romance had me 100% involved, intellectually and emotionally, with both men.
