Top 15 Favorite Romance Books for 2019!!!!

2019 Reflection…

As we close 2019, a lot of us reflect on this last year and what we had accomplished so far. This year was the year of beautiful changes for me and my family.  This summer I told you all I was enrolled back into college! We then went on and bought our first home!!! We moved in this summer and I still wake up in awe and grateful.

A bit after, I was promoted to the IT department for our company as as Business Analyst. That came with an amazing raise and I knew we could make it with the new mortgage. I had to slow down this year with my blog and interaction just because I had to adjust to the new  changes and spend time with my family. But I still read! According to Goodreads, I read 258 books in 2019!! I would love to share my top 15 romance books that made my 2019 list!!! If you are a Kindle Unlimited subscriber like me, you will find a lot books I recommend in KU. Happy Reading and Happy New Year!!!

Review preview: 5 Stars –  Ella James broke me down into pieces with Covet. Then very slowly did the pieces come back together. I was holding my breath page by page.

Interception & Intermission by Lisa Suzanne (Love Triangle Duet): I really do not like 46734719._SY475_reading about love triangles.

This story is so different45318125._SX318_.jpg that Sylvia’s Crossfire series, I was not sure if I was going to like it at the beginning of the book.

Preview Review: 5 StarsBlown Away!!!!! I have so many mixed emotions and thoughts about Butterfly in Frost that I struggled with how I wanted to rate this review.

That was the decision factor for a five star rating. If I feel passionate afterwards, its a win at the end.
