1) Heart Trouble Jae
Lesbian - Contemporary Romance
Paperback: 330 pages
Publisher: Ylva Publishing; 1 edition (October 9, 2016)
Language: English
ISBN-10: 3955337324
ISBN-13: 978-3955337322
Amazon: Heart Trouble Jae

1) Totally loved this book. Haven't really read much from this author but I definitely like her writing style. Words and pages just flowed and made it hard to put down. I really liked the MC's Hope and Laleh as well.
2) Jae consistently gives us good stories, expertly written.
3) A roller coaster of emotion, but a really good read. Laleh & Hope kept me sucked in as their story unfolded.
4) Really a great book. It is a very refreshing read, with a plot that is intriguing, full of interesting details that keep the reader inside the plot. I was pleasantly surprised by how much science, paranormal and history goes arm in arm and fit so well together. I will for sure read again this book, good job!

2-tie) Breaking Anchor Geonn Cannon
Lesbian - Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Supposed Crimes, LLC (March 1, 2017)
Language: English
ISBN-10: 1944591230
ISBN-13: 978-1944591236
Amazon: Breaking Anchor Geonn Cannon

1) An engaging story with powerful, vibrant characters and a terrific setup.
2) This had a tear in my eyes at the opening scene and kept me reading for the whole story. I liked it.
3) This was not a totally new kind of plot, but it was able to portrait the story a lot better and in a more interesting way, that was able to keep my attention. Good story and very good writing style!
4) Cannon is a terrific writer who can make story believeable and characters relatable. His abiliy to get inside the female mind is quite amazing, and his optics on Seattle are first rate.

2-tie) Falling Hard Jae
Lesbian - Contemporary Romance
Paperback: 364 pages
Publisher: Ylva Publishing; 1 edition (April 4, 2017)
Language: English
ISBN-10: 3955338290
ISBN-13: 978-3955338299
Amazon: Falling Hard Jae

1) A sweet story that challenges us to review our own self awareness.
2) Loved this story. Loved the angst. Characters were all well written and developed. Loved Simone and even liked Chloe just a tad. Great love story.
3) Even though I found this story to be long in part it really was a good story. And the characters were interesting, even if I did want to slap a few of them. Though, I really am a sucker for stories with kids in them… Molly was a cutie.

3) A.L. Brooks Miles Apart

ISBN-13: 978-3955338664
Amazon: A.L. Brooks Miles Apart

1) Awesome story.  Extremely well written characters.  Liked them all except Terri. Loved the supporting casts of both woman.  I liked how the authors writing style went back and forth between each character.  Hated to see this one end.
2) A.L. Brooks tackles the thorny subject of infidelity with an elegant finesse and brings us an intelligent story of valuable introspection and profound love between well-rounded characters. A worthy read.
