Micro-Review: Heart of Rock by Karyn Gerrard
I have mixed feelings about this book, in all honesty. I like the broken man needing healing angle, sure, but he really hits rock bottom at the beginning and it’s hard to like Brogan at all. However, as he’s forced to clean up and he realizes just how bad he’d gotten, he kind of grew on me. I like Carly, especially for how she manhandles Brogan, but she gets reckless with him. I appreciate his transformation and her role in making it happen, but I don’t know how much I liked exactly how it played out. Their love scenes weren't bad, but I think I liked their general chemistry better.
I loved a few of the secondary characters and I’m disappointed we don’t get more of them, such as [...]

Micro-Review: Kissing the Maid of Honor (Secret Wishes #1) by Robin Bielman
This was a really cute story full of family devotion that I fell in love with. With Sela being Luke’s little sister’s best friend and his best friend’s little sister, she’s all kinds of off limits to him. That doesn’t stop his body from wanting or his mind from wandering. He doesn’t handle it outwardly very well though and there lies the drama. Watching the two of them iron out their history and dance around the present is cute and fun, though occasionally frustrating as they’re continually being told to stay away from each other and not talking about the important things.
The love scenes are closed door unfortunately, but the chemistry is so strong and tangible that you don’t mind [...]

Micro-Review: Love Him or Leave Him (Small Town, Big Dreams #2) by Sara Daniel
I enjoyed this book plenty, but beware that this book starts off kind of sad. The history of the characters and between them is enough to make a girl cry a little. However, I enjoyed the town and its people, especially as they related to our couple. Connor is so sweet, and Becca is so dedicated and the people around them can’t help but be supportive.
You can tell there was a story before this one, but not in such a way that you feel like you’re missing anything, so this makes a fine stand-alone read. It’s well-written with good mystery, even if it’s a little predictable, good personal conflicts and character depth, and great chemistry even with closed door love scenes (which is [...]
"I like the format of the reviews and it helps me decide if a book is a ‘go get this now’, ‘wait until you’re in the mood’, ‘maybe- if there’s nothing else to read’ or ‘probably not the book match for me’. I eagerly look to see what quotes are presented and I find the ‘if you like-’ comparisons possibly as telling as the actual review. Way to go, guys!"
