Nightchaser RECOMMENDED: Nightchaser by Amanda Bouchet is $1.99! This is a Kindle Daily Deal and is being price-matched. I enjoyed this sci-fi romance and gave this one a B+: There’s a slow burn romance between two characters whom I came to adore, an exciting cast of secondary characters, and big secrets. A delicious new heart-pounding romantic adventure from USA Today bestseller Amanda Bouchet! Captain Tess Bailey and her crew of Robin Hood-like thieves are desperate and on the run. Pursued by a vicious military general who wants them dead or alive, Tess has to decide if she can trust Shade Ganavan, a tall, dark and arrogant stranger with ambiguous motivations. Shade Ganavan had oodles of arrogance, oodles of charm, and oodles of something that made me want to kick him in the nuts. What Tess and Shade don’t know about each other might get them killed…unless they can set aside their differences and learn to trust each other—while ignoring their off-the-charts chemistry.

A- The Bride Test by Helen Hoang May 7, 2019 · Berkley Contemporary RomanceRomance The Bride Test is very much a Cinderella story. It’s tender and so flippin’ sweet. As a book that I was really looking forward to since finishing The Kiss Quotient, it didn’t disappoint. Granted, there were more things that might bug some readers, but I loved this one even more than The Kiss Quotient. I didn’t even think that was possible. Khai Diep is the cousin of The Kiss Quotient’s hero and he has a more severe acute version of Autism Spectrum Disorder than Stella from The Kiss Quotient. He mainly has sensory issues and feels as if he can never show the “right” emotions or say the “right” things. His mother thinks he just shy, and that a wife will help with that. His mom travels to Vietnam where she meets with various women at a hotel, in a sort of interview process. None of them ace the interview. Then Khai’s mom stumbles across Esme Tran working as a maid, restocking the hotel bathroom. She convinces Esme to come to the U.S. for the summer in hopes of her marrying her son. If it doesn’t…

According to Merriam-Webster, it’s “a cute, charming, or amusing first encounter between romantic partners.” In romantic comedy movies, the meet-cute can range from adorable (dreamily staring into each other’s eyes across the street) to awkward (running into someone and falling on top of them). But what if the meet-cute between a couple isn’t so nice and romantic? What if the meet-cute is, well, a disaster? I’ve always privately referred to these not-so-cute first encounters as meet-disasters. They can still be funny to the reader, but the characters may not necessarily see the humor in the situation. Even though I’ve labeled the term as “meet-disaster,” I’ve broadened the…
