Book Review: Hometown Troublemaker (Havenbrook #2) by: Brighton Walsh

Release Date: March 14, 2019
from Bright Publishing LLC
Goodreads | Amazon
Source: I received a complementary copy of this book from the author and voluntarily provided a fair and honest review.
"Aurora "Rory" Haven's life is in shambles. Her ex-husband's living with the woman he cheated with,
her oldest daughter blames her for the divorce, and she's broke. To make ends meet, she partners with the too-young, way too hot local contractor she has absolutely no business fantasizing about.

Nash King is working overtime so he can take over the family business. He doesn't need the distraction of his best friend's sister, but the hot-as-hell, pearl-clutching divorcée barrels her way into his everyday life. He's managed to ignore his attraction to her for a decade. What's another couple months?

The summer heat and forced proximity has tempers flaring…and their chemistry sizzling. But Havenbrook's gossip mill is churning full-force, and the last thing Rory needs is everyone finding out she's crushing on a man eight years her junior. Except crushing doesn't have anything on what's really going on...

What would happen if the townspeople found out paint wasn't the only thing being stripped?"

My Thoughts:

Seriously guys.... Brighton Walsh writes some of the best romance out there. She has yet to disappoint and Hometown Troublemaker was no exception. Her books are always filled with so much heart and feature such great characters. 

Personally my favorite thing about Brighton books are the heroines... because the heroine is always dynamic and strong and flawed and never ever loses herself in the hero. She finds her happiness and a guy she deserves but she is never swallowed whole by the hero and finds someone who loves her for her flaws as well as her attributes and Rory is no exception. Rory can be a lot and has made mistakes but she is working to better herself and finally do the things she has always wanted to do. I loved Rory for all her faults and insecurities and for her strength and perseverance and willingness to finally take a chance. 

Then there is Nash and guys Nash has got a MOUTH on him. In so many ways he is the complete opposite of Rory but they work so well together. I loved how devoted he was and that he just wasn't ashamed to show it. He was all in and was willing to take whatever Rory was willing to give, he moved at her pace and on her terms and Rory really deserved a guy like Nash after everything she had been through. And on top of all that their chemistry is insane.

All in all, Hometown Troublemaker was such a fun and sweet and all around great read. Swoony romance, great characters, and FANTASTIC banter all combined for an addictive read. 

On My Shelf : A New Hope - The Princess, The Scoundrel, And The Farm Boy by: Alexandra Bracken

On My Shelf is a feature I started here on the blog and I'm sure there are a ton of similar ones out there, but basically I just wanted to start spotlighting some of the MANY backlist titles I have accumulated on my shelf and kindle. The idea is to spotlight an older book I have on my massive TBR. I also thought it would be a fun way to discuss these books with my fellow bloggers, get some of your thoughts and figure out which ones I need to read ASAP and which ones can wait a bit more. And if you want to join in too, I would love to see what is on your shelf! Just leave me a link in the comments.


I adore Star Wars, so naturally I had to have this one right when it released. For some reason I have not read this one yet and I really should because it is always fun to escape into Star Wars.

So tell me. Have you read it? Did you love it? Hate it? Was it meh?

Cover Reveal: Glass Castle Prince by: Nicole Williams


A glass castle shatters as easily as a glass house—all it takes is one stone.
Prince Edward has known this all of his life, and taken staunch measures to ensure he doesn’t give the public any reason to pick up their rocks. Or torches. Or pitchforks. As a twenty-two-year-old in line to ascend the throne, he lives more like a cloistered monk than his college-aged peers. Restraint is the tone of his life, resilience the theme.
That is, until he meets a young woman who couldn’t care less about his title—unless she’s poking fun at it. Charlotte Everly grew up a stone’s throw away from the royal family’s summer house, but her life was, and is, entirely different from the prince’s.
They clash at each turn, disagree on every topic, and bear a general contempt for one another. Until . . .
One night, accompanied by one proposal, leads to one lapse in judgment . . .
Results in a nationwide scandal neither of them will escape.


Nicole Williams is the New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author of contemporary and young adult romance, including the Crash and Lost & Found series. Her books have been published by HarperTeen and Simon & Schuster in both domestic and foreign markets, while she continues to self-publish additional titles. She is working on a new YA series with Crown Books (a division of Random House) as well. She loves romance, from the sweet to the steamy, and writes stories about characters in search of their happily even after. She grew up surrounded by books and plans on writing until the day she dies, even if it’s just for her own personal enjoyment. She still buys paperbacks because she’s all nostalgic like that, but her kindle never goes neglected for too long. When not writing, she spends her time with her husband and daughter, and whatever time’s left over she’s forced to fit too many hobbies into too little time.

Top Ten Tuesday: Standalone Books That Need a Sequel

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke And The Bookish and now hosted by The Artsy Reader Girl.

I love standalones and knowing that a story is closed but sometimes I still just want a tad bit more and its usually because I loved it oh so much and didn't want to say goodbye. So here are a few books I'd love to see continue.

On My Shelf: The Cruel Prince by: Holly Black

On My Shelf is a feature I started here on the blog and I'm sure there are a ton of similar ones out there, but basically I just wanted to start spotlighting some of the MANY backlist titles I have accumulated on my shelf and kindle. The idea is to spotlight an older book I have on my massive TBR. I also thought it would be a fun way to discuss these books with my fellow bloggers, get some of your thoughts and figure out which ones I need to read ASAP and which ones can wait a bit more. And if you want to join in too, I would love to see what is on your shelf! Just leave me a link in the comments.


I cannot believe I haven't read this one yet! I have loved Holly Black's fae worlds and I know I am going to love them one, I just haven't made time for it yet. I know I need to squeeze this one in soon though because the world seems to love this book.

So tell me. Have you read it? Did you love it? Hate it? Was it meh?
