February’s Author Crush: Lauren Blakely Will Put a BIG Smile on Your Face

in Romance by

A while ago I picked up a Lauren Blakely book right before bed. Big mistake. Huge! Four hours later and, bleary-eyed, I finally had to admit that I wasn’t going to be getting any sleep that night. At that point it didn’t even matter: I just couldn’t stop reading. And as any good reader knows, sometimes you have to sacrifice sleep for a great book. And O.M.G. was it a great book. Called Big Rock, it’s funny, smart, and scandalous enough to make me blush (more on it below!). After that, I knew I would forever be hooked on Lauren Blakely — which is why before the month was up, I decided I had to make her my official Author Crush for…

December’s Author Crush: Jill Shalvis Masters the Art of Chemistry

in Romance by

It’s not often that I find a new contemporary romance author who blows me away with the very first book. But that’s exactly what happened when I bought my first Jill Shalvis novel three years ago. The story was Head Over Heels, the third book in Jill Shalvis’ insanely popular Lucky Harbor series. From the first page, I knew it was special — the main character was spunky and fun, and her love interest was brooding and hot. More importantly, they had chemistry. Banter and sweet moments and so much heat that I had to take breaks to fan myself. It’s an elusive concept, true chemistry between characters, and so many authors get it so wrong. But Shalvis isn’t one of them,…
