My first two thoughts when I was considering this book: I really hate these new cartoonish covers for romance books. This sounds so freaking adorable. And it was just that: adorable. We follow Cara, who decided to go ahead and go on a trip to Ireland that was supposed to include her now ex-boyfriend. Since […]
Ari Abrams has always been fascinated by the weather, and she loves almost everything about her job as a TV meteorologist. Her boss, legendary Seattle weatherwoman Torrance Hale, is too distracted by her tempestuous relationship with her ex-husband, the station’s news director, to give Ari the mentorship she wants. Ari, who runs on sunshine and optimism, is at her wits’ end. The only person who seems to understand how she feels is sweet but reserved sports reporter Russell Barringer.
In the aftermath of a disastrous holiday party, Ari and Russell decide to team up to solve their bosses’ relationship issues. Between secret gifts and double dates, they start nudging their bosses back together. But their well-meaning meddling backfires when the real chemistry builds between Ari and Russell.
Working closely with Russell means allowing him to get to know parts of herself that Ari keeps hidden from everyone. Will he be able to embrace her dark clouds as well as her clear skies?
Lately I have become obsessed with Russian history. Maybe it was reading the Winternight trilogy by Katharine Arden (which ranks my most beloved series, and one which I have posted about here quite a bit already), or perhaps it was finally watching The Great on Hulu (highly, highly recommend), either way I am always primed […]
I had really high hopes for this book, but unfortunately it just wasn’t for me. I feel like the book had the bones to create something great, but it fell flat for me. The book is about a woman, Dani, who has sworn off men after her ex cheated on her. Dani then has this […]
This book caught my attention because the premise felt fun and whimsical. I always am a sucker for fairytale romances, and Juniper and Tomas felt like they would be an interesting pair. At times, I did feel like the constant ploys to get Tomas and Juniper together felt ridiculous and over the top. However, there […]
4-4.5⭐️ Wow oh wow. This book was so AMAZING!!! And SPICYYY. Looking at the cute cover I honestly never would have expected there to be spice but there was and I was such a happy camper! This was an incredible story and one I’ll probably turn to to read every Christmas time. It has an […]

A PopSugar Best New Book of December
CAN YOU SKIP THE STORYBOOK BEGINNING…
Novelist Juniper Blossom has romance down to a science in her bestselling books. But she’s not about to settle for just any man—a happy ending looks different for everyone, and she needs to find the guy whose idea of forever matches her own. Try telling that to her adorable, meddling grandmothers, though. If she doesn’t find a man soon, they’re going to find one for her. Which is why Juniper has prepared for a trip home to Ever After by fibbing that her sexy, smart, sweet best friend Tomas is her fiancé! He doesn’t believe in love at all, but that doesn’t matter if they’re just pretending…
ON THE WAY TO THE HAPPY ENDING?
Divorce attorney Tomas Rivera is as proud of Juniper’s authorial success as she is, but that doesn’t mean he buys into her books’ premise. His career is proof enough that true love is the real fairy tale—and everyone knows fairy tales aren’t real. But he can never say no to gorgeous Juniper, and an “engagement” might move him one legal brief closer to partner at his old-fashioned firm. Yet playing the part suddenly starts to mean feeling it, especially when a kiss just for show turns up the heat between them. Is happily ever after possible for two people who aren’t on the same page when it comes to love?
I am relatively new to Julie Anne Long’s books, but I intend to rectify that immediately! After Dark with the Duke was such a fun, entertaining read! It was hard to put it down. I never wanted to stop reading! From the moment the two main characters meet, sparks fly. First, the sparks are due […]
