Hello Lovelies! Well I am finally back from hiatus and whew have I missed you all! I stayed away much longer that I had planned to be honest, way way longer. As many of you may know I left to work on some projects and managed to get a good junk of them done, not quite finished, but I am close. I just couldn’t stay away any longer, I have missed blogging so dearly and all of you. I truly appreciate your support and love through this break I took. I can’t wait to talk books with you all and see what you all have been up to! I have so many reviews so in the upcoming months you will probably see a bunch of reviews (although they may not be my normal length)

As far as my personal life and what has been going on. Well not too much. Our state has become more open with Covid, the family is all safe and vaccinated. I Will be switching jobs this month so *crossing fingers* I will get the librarian job that might be an option. The summer has been a nightmare here. In Utah, we are suffering drought. So it’s been rough. Normally we just have a couple of months of heat, but seriously I don’t think we even had a spring at all. We have had 90 temps or higher since almost April. Man, where is my fall and winter weather because I need a cool down.

Hope you are all thriving and staying blessed!

Grab It Up: Book Releases for August 10 2021

Currently Reading

I just started this book and I am really liking it but this heroine….she is going to be a struggle for me. I really REALLY don’t care for women who are bullies. But at least the hero is one step ahead of her haha

Currently Listening

I will be honest I totally forgot I had this in my library libby app, and it won’t be available for a couple months, so decided to listen on AnyPlay.

    Nice to see you back. I’ve taken a couple of blogging breaks over the years but it’s always nice to come back.

    • Loverofromance

      Thank you so much Mary! It feels so good to get back, and having the time to work on projects. I missed it so much.

  2. Rachel @Waves of Fiction

    Sometimes you need a break especially if you have a lot going on that needs your attention. Welcome back! I’m currently reading Devil in Disguise and I’m enjoying it. Loved Last Guard and Someone to Love. Hope you do, too. Looking forward to your thoughts on Claimed. While it didn’t knock my socks off it was an engrossing read and I’m looking forward to the next one. I realize the first in a series can have pacing issues given it’s setting things up.

    • Loverofromance

      Thank you so much Rachel. I hope you have a blast with Devil in Disguise. I adored it so much. Last Guard was a delight. Definitely looking forward to Someone To Love.

  3. Michele H

    So happy to see you back! 🙂 Looking forward to your new reviews & I’m sending good thoughts your way for your job and to getting a break from the heat.

    • Loverofromance

      Thank you so much Michele!! I missed you so much. Will be fun talking books with you again.

  4. Kimberly @ Caffeinated Reviewer

    Glad to see you back. Sorry about the dry spout and heat. We’ve had rain, warmer than average temps, but I am not complaining as I loath winter. Loving your upcoming books!

    • Loverofromance

      Oh Thank you Kimberly. It feels so good to be back. Yes the heat and air quality here is horrid, but hope we get cooler temps soon. Thank you. I am excited for these books ahead.
