June Book Reviews

The Candy Capers by Katy Berritt

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Kept me guessing
I enjoyed the quirky characters, especially the uncle. I kept thinking I knew “who dun it”, but in the end, I was wrong! Candace and Gabe have a history, and chemistry that makes their shenanigans even more interesting! Great debut novel by author Katy Berritt.

Lead Me Here by Aria Bliss

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Lead Me Here by Aria Bliss is the third installment in her Drunk Love Series. Aria knocks this one out of the park. Dexter and Chelsea are the ultimate grumpy sunshine match. With more angst than the other two books, this one takes you through alllllll the feels. Watching Dexter fall in love with Chelsea, and then Ruby, cracked my heart wide open. Dexter definitely redeemed his overbearing ways from Let Me Stay. While you can read these books as stand alones, I do recommend reading them in order. I am loving this whole series by Aria Bliss. I am anxious to get to Luke’s story!

This is a new author for me, and a new genre. I was pleasantly surprised by the emotional connection the characters developed. I think the best part of this story, for me, was the resident at the home where Serena worked. His grumpy demeanor covered the pain of his love lost, and the plot twist at the end had me swooning. Talos and Serena find their way and they connect quite quickly. Serena goes from unsure to accepting rather fast, and I felt like there could have been a bit more tension there. I think the undeniable care Talos takes of Serena is very endearing. If you like Daddy/Little stories, this is a great read.

June was an insane month for me! I moved halfway across the country, and two weeks later flew out for Space Coast Book Lovers Con. What 5-star reads did you read in June? I’d love to know.
