Things We Never Said- Samantha Young

The latest book in Samantha Young’s awesomely heartwarming The Hart’s Boardwalk series is now love! Don’t hesitate to run and get it!

ARC Review

Dahlia loves her life in Hartwell, Delaware. She’s spent a long time hiding from her past, and things have finally clicked together for her present. However, when she finds her beloved father, who has helped keep her secrets for years, needs her help, she drops everything to return home to her estranged family. There she runs into Michael Sullivan, her forbidden love and one of the main reasons she’s been in hiding. Can they overcome their tumultuous past to find happiness in their future?

Things We Never said is the 3rd full novel in the Hart’s Boardwalk series. I’ve loved every book so far, and this is no exception. There’s so much heart, drama, emotion, and redemption. It’s a cozy comfortable book that will make you feel warm inside.

My only issue, and the only reason I’m not giving it a full five stars, is that it drives me crazy when lovers are separated by easily surmountable issues. Pretty much the only reason these characters weren’t together is because of issues that exist only in Dahlia’s head. I understand guilt and how it screws with you, but geeeeeeeez. She was not responsible for what caused the heartache but she was responsible for how she behaved after.

Truthfully Michael was kind of ass to her, which would normally put me off a book, but I can’t entirely blame him for being angry and I have said worse things to my ex. If you’re sensitive to that sort of thing it might not be your favorite book.

However, I still enjoyed this very very much, it was a great read. It’s always nice to return to a series where you love the characters, and this time we even got to know more about Emery. I can’t wait for her story and to continue knowing and loving the residents of Hartwell! 4.5/5 stars

Next In Line- Amy Daws

ARC Review

Surprise! It’s out a week early. Next in Line is the hilarious second book in Amy Daws’ Wait With Me series. We first met sexy bearded ginger Sam in Wait with Me as Miles’s coworker and friend.

Sam takes notice of Maggie while she causes a scene in his favorite bait shop. Maggie is out to prove she’s not basic, as her ex boyfriend claimed, so she decides to embark on a series of adventures.  Sam agrees to take her ice fishing so she doesn’t hurt herself trying, which previously has only been a pastime he has done alone.  The chemistry between them is immediate, and he decides to help her with her with her other adventures. The only problem? Maggie is actually Megan, younger sister of his BFF Miles. 

The book is funny and sexy throughout, as any good RomCom should be.  If you are a fan of this genre, and brooding bearded gingers, this is definitely a book you should check out. 

I have one gripe, and that is that Maggie was super annoying. I understand she is young, but her immaturity was hard to look past and her know-it-all personality was off putting. I get that Sam was supposed to be her balance, the calm to her storm, but as perfect as he is I couldn’t get over her.

I  loved the book in general though and still found it hilarious and charming. 4.5/5 stars 


Official Synopsis:

What happens when the cute mountain man you made out with in an ice fishing shack turns out to be your brother’s best friend?

A whole lot of awkward, that’s what.

Maggie’s mind is reeling when she discovers the guy she became tangled up with at Marv’s Bait & Tackle isn’t a stranger like she thought.

The big snag: Sam and Maggie’s chemistry is hot enough to melt ice, which makes keeping their secret far more difficult than either expected.

Especially when one of them decides they want this arrangement to be more than just a catch and
release.

Release Date: 11/28/18
