It all started with a mysterious blue note sewn into a wedding dress. Something blue. I’d gone to sell my own unworn bridal gown at a vintage clothing store. That’s when I found another bride’s “something old.” Stitched into the lining of a fabulously feathered design was the loveliest message I’d ever read: Thank you for making all of my dreams come true. The name embossed on the blue stationery: Reed Eastwood, obviously the most romantic man who ever lived. I also discovered he’s the most gorgeous. If only my true-love fantasies had stopped there.

I really loved this book. The storyline was flawless and easy. It flowed so well. I really fell in love with the characters and how their friendship grew and their love story unfolded. Some twists and turns I wasn't expecting but definitely flowed naturally with the story. Kudos to the authors, and I've moved them up my list of TBR authors as this is the first I've read of theirs. REALLY LOVED IT!! Deserves the 5 stars! Narration was on point!

Now, as she heads off to college, Reese realizes she's remained so hidden inside a book that she's invisible to everyone, including herself. Kellin Lake has always seen Reese, his little sister's best friend, the beautiful girl hidden behind baggy clothes and good grades - but he's hiding, too - even from her.

I received this audiobook free in exchange for an honest review. I enjoyed the book but I breeze through multiple romances a week and this one was luke-warm for me. It was very predictable and I didn't care for the fact that they both felt they had to hide their true selves from their parents/families. The growth of their relationship was sweet and I enjoyed their progression through the story.

This was laugh out loud funny, but the constant banter with Max was a bit over the top at times and the guys constantly 'yelling' at each other got to me a bit. That aside, I loved the story between Reid and Jordan, and their fun, flirty, chemistry was so fun!! This is my second RVD book, and I'll definitely be looking for more of hers!

Emerson just made her dream come true as a professional cheerleader for her favorite pro football team. But even though the plus-size athlete is breaking down boundaries, she still has to contend with the massive rulebook. Carbs? Nope. Chocolate? Definitely not. Still, Emerson loves her curves, and she'll rock the hell out of this job even if it kills her. Except for one mandate that is easier read than done... No fraternizing with the players.

As much as she wants the jerk, they can’t even be in the same room without setting each other off…which might be a problem now that she’s volunteered to help out in his family’s restaurant. Antonio’s been burned before. Now he knows better than to trust a pretty face and follow another pair of long legs into heartbreak.

I've had many moments in my lifetime, moments that changed me, challenged me. Moments that scared me and engulfed me. However, the biggest ones - the most heartbreaking and breathtaking ones - all included him. I was 10 years old when I lost my voice. A piece of me was stolen away, and the only person who could truly hear my silence was Brooks Griffin. He was the light during my dark days, the promise of tomorrow, until tragedy found him. Tragedy that eventually drowned him in a sea of memories.
