The First Kiss Of Spring (Eternity Springs Book 14) by Emily March Review

Hi Foreverbookers, 
How are you all today? I Hope you’re well 🙂. 
I’ve just finished another great book! “The First Kiss Of Spring” is the 14th book of a contemporary series, called “Eternity Springs” by Emily March. Thanks to NetGalley for allowing me access to read it. I haven’t read any others of the books in the “Eternity Springs” series so I don’t know if the characters crop up in more than one novel.
3.5 Stars (4 on Goodreads)!

I read this for the book that I borrowed or that was given to me as a gift promt on The Popsugar Reading Challenge because I was technically borrowing it from NetGalley. 
We follow the lives of Caitlin and her family, as well as Josh in “The First Kiss Of Spring”. 
Caitlin Timberlake and Josh Tarkington are the main characters. The story is told from 3rd person, omniscient point of view. I would have liked to have seen the story from Caitlin’s perspective because I enjoy reading thoughts and feelings first hand, but the 3rd person perspective wasn’t a terrible…

Should’ve Been You (Man Enough Book 3) by Nicole McLaughlin Review

Hey ForeverBookers, 
I’ve just finished “Should’ve Been You” by Nicole McLaughlin, which is book 3 in the “Man Enough” contemporary series. I haven’t read books 1 or 2 but I could still follow and immerse myself into this storyline, okay. I believe that characters in “Should’ve Been You” have been present in the other books. Especially the three main characters, Jase, Hannah and Becca, so if you’re wanting to follow the characters from the beginning, start with book 1.

NetGalley granted me a review e-arc of “Should’ve Been You” so that’s why I haven’t read the other two books, previously. 
There are explicit sex scenes in “Should've Been You” so I wouldn’t recommend this for anyone under age 17.

Jase is the first character that is seen in “Should’ve Been You”. He’s a 32 year old man who wants to become a cattle herder. The book doesn’t focus on this at all. It’s just contextualises the story. He is single but has been harbouring feelings for Hannah, one of his old, c…

When The Stars Come Out (CottonBloom Book 5) by Laura Trentham Review

Hey ForeverBookers, 
I’ve just finished “When The Stars Come Out” by Laura Trentham. It’s the 5th book in the CottonBloom saga and it was good! It’s a contemporary series. I reviewed the 4th book on here a year or so ago. 

I read this for the Popsugar Reading Challenge of “Book the involves a bookstore or library” because it briefly does feature a library. 
Thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for allowing me to review this for you all. 
2.75 Stars!
It follows the same characters as “Leave The Night On” , except we get insights into a different romance, this time. In “Leave The Night On”, we followed Wyatt and Sutton, but in this story we follow Wyatt’s twin brother, Jackson and an employee at their garage, Willa.
“When The Stars Come Out” includes some explicit sex scenes throughout the second half of the novel. I don’t think it would be suitable for anyone under 17 years of age.
Spoilers Below...
Willa has worked at the garage for a while before “When The Stars Come Out”. She was there in …

The Crown Prince’s Bride (Royal Duology 2) by Donna Alwood Review

Hi ForeverBookers, 

I’ve just finished another great book, The Crown Prince’s Bride by Donna Alwood! It’s a contemporary, Royal romance but has grief attached to the story as well. The Crown Prince’s Bride is actually the second book in a duology. I didn’t realise this to begin with (I really wish NetGalley would tell us what number in a series/duology each book is) but meh, I still enjoyed the book for what it was. However, I don’t believe the novel was finished, and it’s labelled as a duology on Goodreads, so it’s sad that we won’t get to see these characters again. There could be another novel with these characters, I believe. 

I read “Starlight Nights" for the “A book that deals with death/grief” goal on the Popsugar Reading Challenge because one of the characters has to deal with grief, throughout.

Thanks to NetGalley for giving me the opportunity to read this. I enjoyed it! 

The Crown Prince’s Bride focuses on the relationship between Stephani, a part Greek woman, who is the ad…

Starlight Nights (732 Days #2) by Stacey Kade Review

Hey ForeverBookers,
“Starlight Nights”, the first book that I read this year was fantastic! It was like a soap opera with how many storylines it had. There was a love story, a selfish parent story, a drugs story, a friendship story, along with more. The book is long enough to fit all those different stories too as it’s 400 pages.

"Starlight Nights" is the second book in a series of linked contemporary standalone novels. I say linked because there’s a character featured as a side character who’s a main character in the first book 738 Days by Stacey Kade, too. I read this as a standalone, though and it was fine. 

I read “Starlight Nights" for the “A book that’s published in 2018” goal on the Popsugar Reading Challenge. 
Netgalley were kind enough to grant me a review copy of “Starlight Nights” so it’s thanks to them as well as the publisher that I’ve been able to read and review this...
Calista and Eric are the main characters. “Starlight Nights” is told from both of their per…

Pets At Primrose Cottage Part 1 by Sheila Norton Review

Happy New Year, ForeverBookers!

Last night, I finished Pets At Primrose Cottage by Sheila Norton: Part 1. It was good. I don’t think I quite enjoyed it as much as her other serialised novel, The Vets At Hope Green because the lead female character came across as younger and more childish/immature in this part of Pets At Primrose Cottage. I have hope that she’ll grow up in the other parts. 
3 Stars!
We follow Emma who used to live in America but after a scandal, she moves back home, to England. We, as the readers don’t know what happened, yet. I think this will be revealed in part 2 or 3 of this novel. She starts a pet sitting business to hide her lies to everyone, where she now lives in England. 
Spoilers Below...
“Actually, I was sure it was worse for me, since I was the cause of all this fuss and attention”
This is Emma comparing her life to that of her twin sister, Kate. Emma thinks she’s the worse off in her family because of this thing that happened. She’s not living with her family be…
