Townshipped by Savannah Scott



Everyone said it wasn’t as though a woman was going to land on my doorstep and fall in love with me.

Never say never.

Now, this woman literally crashes into my life, but she doesn’t remember a thing about what happened before she got here.

She’s beautiful and a little sassy.
The longer she’s here, the more I feel like she’s the missing piece of a puzzle I didn’t even know I was trying to solve.

Our small town has her pegged as my imported bride, my mom’s already sharing family recipes, and my best friend won’t stop taunting me about the way I look at her.

For once in my life, I can picture a future with someone -- with this woman fate seems to have brought me from out of nowhere.
The funny thing about fate? Things never go quite the way you planned.

My Review: 5 Stars

Oh my heart! Guys... get ready for all the feels in this one! And I mean All. The. Feels! Once I started this book, there was no turning back. I was hooked!

This book should come with a warning though.

**WARNING** You might want to have your favorite treat on hand while reading this book because, if you're like me, you may or may not find yourself wanting to eat your feelings using the aforementioned treat.

Why? Because, y'all. *deep breath* Y'all. There were times that Em and Aiden drove me crazy! I kinda wanted to Gibbs slap them and tell them to WAKE UP! And I may or may not have wanted to throw my kindle across the room a time or two... but then I would've quickly ran over to pick it up and dive right back in.

Frustration aside, Em and Aiden are seriously the best! I quickly fell in love with these two and found myself rooting them on from the very beginning. They were absolutely perfect for each other. And it didn't hurt that their flirting, chemistry, and swoony kisses were hot, hot, hot! 

Y'all. I am loving this series! Small town romances are currently at the top of my favorites list. Between the quirkiness of the well meaning townsfolk, seeing old friends, meeting new friends, and just the strong feeling of community and always being there to help each other, I can't seem to get enough of them! They are my happy place and I never want to leave.

Ms. Scott has rightfully earned a spot on my go to authors list. I have loved all her books I've read so far. With all the sweet moments and swoony kisses, I'll definitely be reading them over and over again. If you haven't already, you should definitely give her a try! Don't worry... you can thank me later. 

As for my casting, y'all. I saw these two from the very beginning and I seriously love them! What do you think?

Battleshipped by Savannah Scott



I am not in love with my ex-boyfriend ... I'm not.

You know those stories where high school sweethearts reunite to find their happily-ever-after bliss together?

Well, that won't be me.

Sure, my ex-boyfriend, Rob, has the smolder down to a science, which makes sense, because to him, everything is science. He's a famous YouTuber, making a living using that beautiful brain of his.

He's destined for greatness ... which means he'll leave ... again.
And this time, I won't be falling for him.

The battle is on. Rob thinks he'll win me back, but I'm fighting him with all I've got.

My heart is locked up tight, behind an obstacle course with every booby trap imaginable ....
Wouldn't you know it? Rob happens to be an expert at finding his way around locks and obstacles. Just my luck.

My Review: 4 Stars

Raise your hand if you're a sucker for second chance romance. I don't know about you but, for me, there's just something about seeing the hero and heroine, who clearly still love each other, work out their differences and realize what's been missing in their lives since they said goodbye.

The road back to each other is never easy, just ask Laura and Rob. It takes time, patience, understanding, and love. And maybe swoony kisses thrown into the mix couldn't hurt. Before the book ends they'll have you believing that love is taking that second chance, that home is not a place but a person, and even though the journey can be scary and uncertain at times, it's well worth it when they finally get their HEA.

I do have to say that I really didn't feel the enemy to lovers vibe in this book. Maybe I missed it since I skipped over the first book in the series? It was a slow burn romance and y'all know how I feel about those. 🙈 But me missing that vibe didn't stop me from enjoying Laura and Rob's journey. It had all the feels that I've come to love in second chance romances.

I am really enjoying this series. Bordeaux (pronounced Bored-Ox) is quickly becoming one of my favorite places to visit, but fictional small towns usually are. Aiden's book is up next and I cannot wait to dive in! Thank goodness I have leftovers planned for dinner. Otherwise, I wouldn't be eating tonight! 😂

Ms. Scott is quickly becoming a favorite of mine. I keep asking myself why in the world I waited so long to give her books a try. They are definitely swoony and full of kisses, both of which I love! I cannot wait to see what she she has planned for us next!

As for my casting, I pretty much saw these two from the very beginning. I love them! What do you think?

Censorshipped by Savannah Scott



I am finally over my crush on Duke. Completely done.

Duke’s always been like a big brother to me … a big brother with abs of steel, a heart of gold, and those dimples that make my heart rate double whenever he smiles.

As far as Duke's concerned, I’ll always be his best friend Chris’ little sister—the little girl who dunked his Darth Vader action figure in Elmers glue and glitter.

Even if Duke noticed me, it wouldn’t matter. I’m so off limits, I may as well be wearing an outfit made entirely of caution tape. We both know Chris would enlist a special ops tactical team to hunt Duke down if he ever pursued anything beyond friendship with me.

Good thing I’m over Duke. One hundred percent attraction-free, that’s me. Well, mostly … until I accidentally send him one of my usual scrambled texts (thank you, autocorrect) … and he thinks I’m hitting on him.

I’m mortified enough to momentarily consider relocating someplace obscure like Greenland. I can never show my face around town again. I’ll buy a parka and an ice pick and learn to love fish. A lot.

But then Duke answers my text …
Am I dreaming? He’s not mad. He’s not even making fun of me.
In fact, it seems like he might be flirting back

I guess I might not be completely over this crush after all.

Just don’t tell my brother.

My Review: 5+ Stars!

Shannon has been in love with Duke for years. But with him being her brother's best friend, he's off limits. Unbeknownst to her, he feels the same way. But again, off limits. Do you see where this is going? I think you do. Once their feelings come out, there's no turning back. And I just have one thing to say... let the swooning begin!

Oh my heart! Y'all! I can't even with all the swooniness! I. Can't. Even! Where should I begin? I do have to warn you, this is going to be one of those gushing reviews. But you guys, I can't help it! This book had absolutely everything I want in the books I read! 😍

All the feels? ✓ Swoony? ✓ Lots of kisses? ✓ Giggled/laughed out loud? ✓ Let out all the little dreamy sighs? ✓ Butterflies in my tummy? ✓ Big gestures? ✓ Witty banter? ✓

Eeeeeek! Y'all. I could not get enough of Shannon and Duke! Between their banter, text messages, smokin' hot kisses, sweet moments, seeing each other in a way no one has before, and did I mention their smokin' hot kisses? They are absolutely perfect for each other! Was their relationship all sunshine and roses? Nope. But that's one of the things that makes them perfect for each other. They know just what to say and do to make things right. I loved spending every single minute I could with them and have to admit that I did not want their book to end! It's just that good!

This is my first book by Ms. Scott and I can say it will NOT be my last! I'm excited to go back and read the other books in this series. And I'm definitely looking forward to Jayme's book. I have a feeling sparks are definitely going to be flying between Mr. Grumpy and Ms. Sunshine. Add in Mr. Grumpy being a single dad? Eeeeeeeek! I. Can. Not. Wait! 

As for my casting, y'all. I'm not going to lie. I was too busy swooning to even picture these two but now that I do, I'm in love! What do you think?
