My review : Mr Big by Delancey Stewart left me with mixed feelings. I finished it mid-August. That’s one of the few I managed to read this summer, along with Traitor in her arms. But I just couldn’t bring myself to review it. I was seriously confused.

He’s going through a hard time lately and while he deals with it, Holland is working long hours to achieve her goals and get her dream job.

My review : My Fair Lover by Nicole Jordan was a good book. I’m really ashamed of how long it took me to read it. But that’s not the book’s fault, that’s all on me. I didn’t choose the right time to start it as I was really busy. And I regret it because I’m sure that’s the kind of book I could have read in one go.

♥ The story 

My Fair Lover tells the story of Lady Katherine and Brandon Deverill. Six years ago, Brandon broke Kathy’s heart by leaving her to go at war against the English, her own countrymen. Today he’s back and she needs his help to recover lost family treasures. In exchange, she offers him to help him find a bride.

Book 1 | Book 2 | Book 3

My review : I should start by saying Arm Candy by Jessica Lemmon is one of the most wonderful story I’ve read in a long time. I just put it down and it’s been a while since I’ve wanted to share my views about a book right away. That says something about how excited I am.

Arm Candy is the first book I read from this author and I’m happy I got to discover her. I’m definitely going to check her other books. The writing in this one was great and I loved how I was hooked from the very beginning, how I couldn’t flip through the pages fast enough. This book was addictive.

♥ The story 

Arm Candy tells the story of Davis, a suit-wearing stock analyst and Gracie, a feisty redhead bartender. Davis is a regular at McGreevy’s, the bar Gracie works in. He sat at his regular seat every evening and they enjoy bantering until he takes home his blonde of the day/week. They’re both attracted to each other and they know it but a past full of pain prevents them from acting on it. Hence, why they banter instead.

From the very start of this book, you can sense the strong connection between Gracie and Davis. Their every interaction is fun, full of sexual tension but also holds a subtle, deeper affection. Everything flows from there. Grace bets him he can’t change his habit of dating only blondes and well, Davis can’t turn down a challenge.

Genre : Historical romance
Rating : ♥♥♥♥♥

My review : Traitor in her arms is my first book from this author and the first of The Scarlet Chronicles series. If you read my blog or follow my Instagram, you might know how much I love historical romances. Well, let me tell you that Traitor in her arms has everything I like in those type of read : the passion mixed with adventure and suspens. A perfect historical romance.

♥ The characters 

Gabrielle – I loved reading about this character. The paradox between the good girl from a noble family and the thief is really entertaining. If you like strong characters that are determined and go for what they want, you’ll love Gabrielle. She’s loyal, courageous, beautiful and kind.

Ramsey – Ramsey’s character is really intriguing from the beginning. We know he has a big secret and we can’t help but read to discover it. I found the secret not to be disappointing. Ramsey is touching by his story, his loyalty and by his love for Gabrielle while he tries to keep his distance from her but fails.

What I loved 

  • The chemistry between Ramsey and Gabrielle
  • The suspens and adventure mixed with a passionate romance

In conclusion, it’s a historical romance I strongly recommend to all lovers of this genre.
