Richelle R. recommends Broken Clocks by Danielle Allen.

It was my first 5 Star read of the year and it made me cry. Plus the message behind the story was beautiful.

indexSynopsis:

According to my grandma, a broken clock being right twice a day meant that in any given situation, perfect timing only happens twice. I fell for William Grayson in a matter of minutes. The connection between us was undeniable, but our timing was off. I was dating someone and by the time I was single again, he was taken. And a year later, when we finally got together, it was clear that we were soulmates. But circumstances out of our control cut our time short. We were a little older, a little wiser, when our paths crossed again. I was entering a new phase of independence in both my career and my life. He was growing professionally and moving to a new city. And even though our timing was off, it was still clear that we were soulmates. But for the second time, circumstances out of our control cut our time short. My grandma was a wise woman, but my love life taught me that there’s no such thing as perfect timing. There’s just timing… Because nothing is perfect. There’s just right now… Because tomorrow isn’t promised. For as long as we’d known each other, William and I just wanted to be together. It was as simple and as complicated as that.

Christi F. recommends Ever After by Roxie Noir

Ever After is the third in a trilogy (all interconnected stand-alones) and is the redemption story of Liam. It’s an amazing story of friendship and addiction recovery.

51CE343V-GL._SY346_

Synopsis:

I was p*ss-drunk, high as a kite, and about to jump from a bridge.

She stopped me. I told her to f*ck off.

Exactly how all great love stories start.

A year later, I met her again. Sober this time, after yet another stint in rehab.

She’s still pretty, still a spitfire, still lights up a room when she walks in.

And she doesn’t realize I’m the guy from the bridge.

Frankie doesn’t know anything about me or my past. She doesn’t know I’m a former rock star or an ex-junkie.

She doesn’t know that two years ago, someone died and it was my fault.

She doesn’t need to know. She’s got problems of her own, and they’re what keep her coming back to see me time and again, even when we both know she shouldn’t.

I should be staying far, far away from this girl, but it’s like telling water to flow uphill. Can’t be done.

Frankie and I may be going down in flames, but we’ll be going down together.

Christi F. recommends Watch Me Follow by Harloe Rae

“Watch Me Follow is an emotional journey through social anxiety and love.”

36585211

Synopsis:

Creep. Freak. Crazy Eyes.
I’ve heard it all.
Over the years, they’ve slammed me with every demeaning name in the book.
Their taunts warped me like a steady stream of poison.
Anger replaced anxiety as I started believing the cruelty spat my way.
Until she showed up and changed everything.
Lennon Bennett is pure innocence—warm sunshine breaking apart my stormy existence.
She’s everything good and maybe I can be too.
For her. With her. Because of her.
Lennon doesn’t know I’m beckoned closer with each breath.
She isn’t aware that I’m completely consumed with her.
It’s become my sole purpose to protect her, by any means necessary.
But if she discovers the depth of my obsession, it will be the end of me.
So, I remain in the shadows.
Waiting. Watching. Wanting.
She’ll be my first. My last. My only.

Tabitha W. recommends Mend by Chelle Bliss

It was a sweet, small town, romance with a lot of heart.

51fkvjRsu-L._SY346_

Synopsis:

Before senior year, I was forced to move away, leaving behind the only man I ever loved. He promised he’d love me forever. He vowed nothing would tear us apart. He swore he’d wait for me, but Jack lied.

Six years later, when our paths cross again, his broad shoulders, rock-hard chest, and rippling muscles almost make me forget his betrayal. His rugged voice, tempting lips, and sinful smile make it harder for me to deny the feelings I still have for him.

Now, Jack wants to make me his again, but our past may be too much for us to overcome.

They say time heals all wounds, but the years haven’t diminished my heartache. The only thing that dulls the pain are Jack’s lips caressing my skin as he whispers, “It’s always been you.”

Tabitha W. recommends Tapping Out by Nikki Ash

It’s a coming of age story about a strong female MMA fighter. It’s the first spin-off of Nikki’s Fighting Series, but it can be read as a stand alone.

414-We566IL._SY346_

Synopsis:

Being a fighter is in my blood. My grandfather was a fighter, my father was a fighter, and I’m a fighter. I live for the rush of adrenaline and sensation of victory. When I fight, I give it my all. I step into the octagon and I fight until there’s nothing left to fight for.

He’s been my best friend for most of my life. I’ve fought with him, fought against him, and for the longest time I fought for him, for us. Until he pushed me away, leaving me no choice but to tap-out.

***

Fighting is what saved me. It shed the old me and I became a newer shinier version of myself. Until it took away everything I loved. I gave up and tapped out.

Then one day, she came back into my life and reminded me that some things in life are worth fighting for. Now I’m fighting for us, day by day, proving to her that our happily ever after is worth fighting for.

This book is a stand-alone MMA romance.
