Fireman Edition (Standard Romance Story #1) by M.S. Willis - @mswillisbooks

Standard Romance Story: Fireman Edition  (Standard Romance Story, #1)
Bear with me as I try to wrap my mind around the fact that same author who wrote this wonderfully light and funny story - also is the same person who wrote the darker Estate series (which I love by the way!).  But she did, and let me tell you I'm totally hooked.

 The idea of this series is perfect - and so true.  All these "perfect" men and situations we read about - are really just stories, not real life, but they suck us in and make us hope.  Jane is going to test all our book boyfriends out.  She's going to see if it's all true or more so, possible for us to have what we read about.  She is us - just a regular woman, living a regular life.  She places and ad about what she wants to accomplish, and that is where all the fun begins.
 This book starts with the fireman.... and let me say you will laugh, think that this could be you on this date, and wonder if he will be "the one".  I know I did, and I was so sad when their date was over, because now I have to wait for the next date and book.  This series has me hooked with book one - and I'm ready for the crazy ride ahead.

Beneath Series by Tori Madison - @AuthorToriMadis

Tori Madison     Beneath, You're Beautiful (Beneath, #2)
This series is one that has been on my tbr list for awhile.  It's one of those series that had me wanting to read it so badly, but I was scared at all the emotions that it would make me feel while I read it.  And, I was right - it did make me feel everything.  I cried, I laughed, I ached, I cheered,  my heart broke and rejoiced and best of all I felt hope.
I could never say enough wonderful things about Victoria.  She faced head on, not only the cancer that invaded her life and body - but the loss of the one person that she truly thought she could rely upon.  She faced it all with courage, and grace even amidst the fear.  Luckily for her, she was blessed to have the support of three wonderful woman and parents who loved and cared for her whole-heartedly, along with amazing doctors who helped her through her "journey".

I'd encourage anyone to read this book and experience the journey that Victoria went on.  Ride the wave of her highs and lows, her diagnosis and recovery, losing love and finding it again but even better.   This book was so inspirational for me, and I know I'm glad I finally took the ride and read these books.

To the Max (Bowen #3) by Elle Aycart

To the Max (Bowen, #3)    

I enjoyed this story of Max and Annie so much.  These two together we're perfection.  Max was just what Annie needed, and their personalities just complimented each other just right.  I loved watching Max fall for Annie, and her baby - and of course there were many moments that left me laughing at their interactions with each other.  I even learned a new word that I think a lot of us could use to describe these wonderful books we all read..."Cliterature".

I do also have to say that even though Nate Bowen (Max's dad) isn't in the story a lot, his parts in the book totally had me falling for the wonderful man/father that he was and is.  No wonder all the Bowen’s are keepers!  So looking forward to Jack's story, I have a feeling it's gonna be smoking hot!
