Give Me Your All & Nothing Else | Romance Short List

I borrowed the title of this post from a Selena Gomez song (Hands to Myself). I’ve been obsessed with new releases from her and Demi Lovato lately. They are both sexy and confident and strong, and both new albums reflect that. I’m not sure how natural of a segway this is into ROMANCE NOVELS but I’m […]

molly | wrapped up in books - I’m going to try that Victoria Dahl. I could be into some hot guy librarian!

Alexa S. - When the weather gets cooler, I always find that I’m much more in the mood for reading romances! Though I gravitate towards historical romances more often, I do find myself reading romances in all genres. From the ones you’ve included, I really want to check out TAKING THE HEAT! It sounds like a really great read 🙂

Quinn @ Quinn's Book Nook - I cannot get enough romance lately. I just want more and more and more romance novels. I have read Taking the Heat and it was amazing! Definitely a favorite.

This Love Bug | Romance Short List

Did you know August was Romance Awareness Month? Me neither. (Just made it!) I found out when I was doing some research for work, but hey, it is and here we are. Three romance recommendations that eased me back into work after vacation, accompanied me on a beer crawl, and kept me company on a “me night” […]

Alexa S. - Had no idea that it was Romance Awareness Month! As always, your romance novel suggestions intrigue me. I’m very much interested in Susan Mallery’s novel especially, though I haven’t read anything from her yet. And I loved A New Hope. It was a nice addition to Thunder Point! (Wildest Dreams is awesome, by the way.)

Quinn @ Quinn's Book Nook - I didn’t know August was Romance Awareness Month, either, but I’ve certainly been reading my fair share of romances. I just can’t get enough of them lately.

Molly | wrapped up in books - This doesn’t sound like something I’d normally pick up, but you’ve made me want to check it out! A small town romance sounds like what I need right now 😉

Asheley Tart (@BookwormAsheley) - This looks kind of cute! You know how I love the Southern settings and you have described EXACTLY the small town type of atmosphere that I grew up in. This sounds kind of fun and I am curious about what you describe near the end of your review with the 911 calls and such. I’m going to library this one! Thanks E!

Melissa @ i swim for oceans - I love the sound of this one – especially the title. It doesn’t sound like it’s without its flaws, but it also sounds really fun and quirky – just my type. Lovely review, Estelle!

February 14, 2014 - 12:02 pm

Alexa S. - Curl Up & Dye is such a clever title! But seriously, I would pick it up just because of that. The story sounds pretty cute too, as I’m a sucker for small-town romances 😉

Alexa Y. - That cover just drew me in from the start – and the story sounds pretty fantastic. I’m loving the fact that the two MCs have known each other since childhood too!

Ginger @ GReads! - Yes! Thanks to you, Estelle, I had added this one to my TBR. It sounds like the perfect adult contemp I need in between my YA’s 😉

amber - This sounds like it is right up my ally. I love romance books so I’m sure to love this one.

Jess @ Gone with the Words - Eeeep! First, to answer your question, yes, I want to buy all the books with cowboys on the the covers because, HELLO!! Hot! Secondly! YAY!! So glad this one is “Worth It”!! I’m totally going to buy it.

February 11, 2013 - 4:09 pm

VeganYANerds - I’m not usually attracted to cowboys but I’m a convert since reading Lovestruck Summer and meeting Russ 😉

This sounds like the sort of romance book I’d enjoy – great review, Estelle!

Anna - Who DOESN’T love cowboys?
