Why we loved Kristen Ashley's "Deacon" so much: 
Despite being a little different to the other books in this series, I still loved everything about this story.  From the minute I was introduced to Deacon, I felt my heart start beating faster and harder, and the further I read, the more excited and giddy I got. This was another fantastic addition to the "Unfinished Heroes" series.

Why we thought Tillie Cole's "A Thousand Boy Kisses" was a standout read: 
"One Thousand Boy Kisses" was a book full of cherished moments and memories. Rune and Poppy's journey was one that was raw and beautiful, brave and inspirational and definitely thought provoking. I doubt my heart will ever fully recover from this one.

Why JA Huss's "Rook + Ronin (The Complete Series)" was one of our top favourites: 
I absolutely loved it. It was everything I wanted and needed and so much more. Rook and Ronin are really are up there with my all time favourite book couples and their journey to getting their fairytale ending has got to be up in there in my all time favourite reads!!!

A.Merdith Walters "One Day Soon" made our list because: 
This was a book I quite literally inhaled in one day, only coming up for air when I absolutely had to. It had all the hallmarks of a signature A Meredith Walters book and if you as big a fan of this author as I am, you'll know exactly what I mean by that.  Yoss and Imi's story was unpredictable and unconventional. It was thought provoking and it was poignant. I don't think my heart has ever hurt so much when reading a book.

Keith Stuart's "A Boy made of Blocks" was one of our favourites because: 
I'm a romance reader through and through and that is really all I've read for the last three years. However, when I read the synopsis for "A Boy made of Blocks," there was just something about Alex's story that said "Read me. You won't be disappointed" and I was right. This book was different but so  brilliant. It was captivating, addictive, poignant and absolutely life affirming.

Why Emma Scott's "Full Tilt (Full Tilt #1)" was a standout read: 
Throughout this wondrous story so many things shone through- Joy, happiness, courage, hope, trust but above all else there was love. Beautiful, awe-inspiring, made-my-heart-soar love. "Full Tilt" is a novel that is not to be missed and I implore you to add it to your TBR's today.

What we loved about Pepper Winters "Unseen Messages":
"Unseen Messages" was a powerful, moving, heart wrenching story that was told with such passion and vigour, that it was difficult not to be affected by what I was reading. This was a story that was original, thought provoking and poignant and it was bloody brilliant. I could tell that this author really had put her heart and soul into this one.

Why we thought that Sylvain Reynard's "The Florentine Series" was a standout read for us: 
This series has been my absolute favourite from this genre. It was jam-packed with all the things that I have come to expect from this author. Romance, passion, excitement and edge of my seat drama. I was addicted every step of the way.

What we loved about CD Reiss's "Marriage Games (Games Duet #1)":
I was enthralled with everything that happened between Adam and Diana. "Marriage Games" was sexy, compelling and addictive. There is something about this author's work that captures my attention and completely consumes me. It's needless to say that I loved every single thing about this book.

Why Raine Miller's "Filthy Rich" was one of our top favourites of the year: 
I absolutely loved this first book in "The Blackstone Dynasty" series. "Filthy Rich" made me feel everything that a good romance should. I swooned my way through this story from beginning to end. It was a joy to read. If you love books that are deliciously swoony and sexy, this needs to be on your kindle.
