♕ REVIEW ♕ ARC ♕ THE BIRTHDAY LIST BY DEVNEY PERRY

TITLE: The Birthday List
AUTHOR: Devney Perry
GENRE: Romance
 PUBLICATION: April 3rd, 2018
4 Minute by Minute stars 


THE BIRTHDAY LIST: 
Is a full length Contemporary Romance Novel by new to me author Devney Perry. 

In the ‘PROLOGUE:’ 
Poppy and Jamie had met each other on the the first day of their sophomore years at Montana State, that was the day she had met the man of her dreams. Her future husband to be. James Sawyer Maysen. 

On the eve of their one year wedding anniversary Poppy receives news that we never want to hear in our life time, that her husband had been killed. Leaving her as a twenty five year old widow. 

Life from that day forwards life had seemed to have stopped for Poppy.

FIVE YEARS LATER: 
Since Jamie’s life had been cut so short Poppy has decided to work her way through her deceased husband's birthday list. The first on the list was to open their dream cafe, ‘The Maysen Jar’ which she had accomplished and was proving to be a huge success. 

My heart had been in pieces sine the night Jamie had been killed. It had taken every day of the last five years for the pain in my chest to fade to a dull ache. 

Jamie’s birthday list had become an obsession of his, it was his own version of a bucket list except it would be a birthday list instead of a list of things he wanted to accomplish before each birthday. 

She’d also already braved skydiving, the next thing on his list was to learn karate. That day when she turns up for class she runs into Cole Goodman, the cop that came knocking on her door many years ago informing her that her husband was dead. Going through his birthday list and accomplishing each activity set out was in some ways offering her closure, allowing her to finally put him to rest and allowing her to say goodbye to him. 

There’s electricity sizzling between them which Cole felt straight away which he's never felt towards any other female before and he's sure she feels the same way he just has to wait until she's ready to move on. 

I really enjoyed the simplicity of this story, just a straight up raw emotional beautiful story of Poppy’s struggle to find her ground after the brutal death of her husband. I would’ve liked to have seen the effects this had on her personally instead of the jump that occurred (5 years later) I just wanted to stay in that moment for a wee bit longer, to feel the build up of emotions of losing someone so dear to her heart but with the big jump that occured I didn't get to fully feel the debilitating struggle she would've gone through losing the love of her life. 

But where I did get those feelings was the ticking off of Jamies birthday list, so beautiful, so unique, that's where all the feels came rushing at me. Add in Cole and he was just the icing on the cake.

WHAK cover FINAL_1
TITLE: What He Always Knew
SERIES: What He Doesn't Know Duet #2
AUTHOR: Kandi Steiner
GENRE: Romance
 PUBLICATION: March 29th, 2018
Left or right. It’s that simple, and it isn’t simple at all. If I turn left, the road will lead me back to the man I promised my life to, the one I’d imagined building a family with, the one who’s done everything in his power to get me back. If I turn right, the road will take me to the man I loved first, the man who brought me back to life, the man who would do anything to keep me. I knew the fork in the road was inevitable; it was the decision I never wanted to make between choices I didn't know I had. And I love them both. My heart is destined to exist in two equal halves — one with each man. But one half beats stronger, the vein running deepest, and holds my choice in silence long before I know it for myself. The realization of what I have to do, of the heart I have to break, just might break mine too. Left or right. All I have to do is take a breath and turn.

Picture Perfect Lie AMAZON
TITLE: Picture Perfect Lie
AUTHOR: Marquita Valentine
GENRE: Contemporary Romance
PUBLICATION: March 20th, 2018
All Campbell Faircloth wanted was a safe place to call home.
All Knight King wanted was to leave his hometown behind.
I never expected to end up in Castle Beach, surrounded by a family who believes that I’m not only their brother’s wife, but the mother of his infant daughter.
I can’t tell them the truth—Knight and I met only three days earlier, during a layover in Atlanta.
He was headed out to fight in a war that hardly anyone talked about anymore, and I was headed back home to a family who pretended that I didn’t exist.
He helped me with my baby.
He kept us safe while we slept.
We shared lunch and dinner… and I spilled all my secrets to him.
Then he gave me an address, along with an offer I couldn’t refuse.
*
Six months later he’s back to bury his brother, and my lie is about to be exposed.
Only Knight doesn’t say a word.
He goes along with the charade, and each day we spend together, pretending to be husband and wife, it’s getting harder and harder not to believe in our lie.
Could our picture perfect lie turn into a picture perfect forever?

ALTHOUGH I HAD SWORN to never be a woman who needs a man—well, to never be that woman again, I find myself being led by Knight and following him like he’s leading us to the Promised Land.
“Free food, free hot shower... and my company,” he says as we walk to the USO Lounge.
“What else can you ask for during an ice storm?” On second thought, maybe he is leading me to the land of soft beds and all the food I can eat.
“There’s something I didn’t tell you,” he says, stopping short of the entrance. Unease scuttles through me.
“What’s that?” I hold Hazel closer to me, breathing in her baby scent like it’s a talisman that can protect us.
“They think we’re married.”
