Sometimes a single flame can
ignite a love that lasts a lifetime. 


Milo Phillips knows the meaning of pain. Suffering through
the most intense physical agony of his life, he’s confined to a hospital bed to
bear it alone. More than once, he wishes he’d died in the explosion that melted
and mangled his skin. Darkness consumes him, snuffing all the joy in his life
and leaving an empty hole in its place.


But one day, a flicker of light sneaks into his hospital
room, driving away some of the hopelessness. For the first time in months, pain
isn’t all he feels.


The flicker’s name is Sara Foster, his new nurse. Milo just
hopes that Sara can see past his scars. Because underneath, his heart has begun
beating again just for her.

✍🏻 Professor Romance’s 5+ ⭐️ Review: Devney Perry’s The Candle Palace ✍🏻

Overall Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️+

When I heard that Devney Perry was writing Milo’s story from the Jamison Valley series, I was ecstatic. See, I struggled with the ending of the Jamison Valley books series. I fell hard for those books. I started The Coppersmith Farmhouse one day and proceeded to binge-read the rest of the series over the course of four days. Yes, binge-read. Perry has this way of writing stories with pieces of heart entwined with her characters. There is a gentleness in her characters, even when they carry big personalities. I’ve read it in all of her books. It’s the gentle finesse of character and story creation that keeps me reading her books.

When I heard that Devney Perry was writing Milo’s story from the Jamison Valley series, I was ecstatic. See, I struggled with the ending of the Jamison Valley books series. I fell hard for those books. I started The Coppersmith Farmhouse one day and proceeded to binge-read the rest of the series over the course of four days. Yes, binge-read. Perry has this way of writing stories with pieces of heart entwined with her characters. There is a gentleness in her characters, even when they carry big personalities. I’ve read it in all of her books. It’s the gentle finesse of character and story creation that keeps me reading her books. 

When I finished the final book (and at the time, the last book) of the series, The Bitter Root Inn, I ended it painfully. I mourned the end of this series because I had fallen in love with the characters of this fictional community. In fact, I’ve already commented to her that I’d like the 2.0 version with the children from the original four books. 

Instead, Perry felt called to Milo and Sarah’s story. We find Milo initially in The Coppersmith Farmhouse, and we know that he’s involved in a horrifying accident with Jess, the lead hero of that book. We know he’s burned horribly and is air-vacced to Portland. In a later book, we know he has fallen in love with his nurse, Sara, and they are married, but, until her newest book, The Candle Palace, we don’t know their story. And, now, thanks to the creative imagination of Perry, we do. 

I really don’t need a synopsis for this review as, if you’ve read the other books, you get the gist of this story, and quite frankly, I really don’t want to lay it out because The Candle Palace has taken a little bit of my heart. It’s in my soul, as Perry’s other books are. What I’d like to focus on are the emotions I felt as I read this book. I’d like to offer how these emotions make this story an undeniable read, even if you have never read Perry’s other books. Seriously, you could read this extended novella and learn about the writer who is Devney Perry because the stories she writes evoke distinct emotions. So here goes:

  1. Nostalgia. I wrote this first because I felt this heavy feeling of nostalgia as I finished The Bitter Root Inn. It was a strange feeling because I was just finishing the book, and it didn’t seem that I should miss something of it yet. But I did. It weighed in my soul as I said good-bye to characters I had fallen in love with. I’ve not felt this with too many other books (and I’ve read quite a few – just check out my GoodReads profile). Yet, I felt it distinctly at the end of the series. And then again at the end of The Candle Palace. Perry brilliantly recreated this feeling in some final thoughts and words of Sara’s. I didn’t think I’d feel it as I did in her previous book, but it was central to my understanding of this book. In hindsight, I suppose this is a bit of a love letter to her fans through this book or even a goodbye to those characters. I’m not sure.  And, in my opinion, it’s what makes it special to me. It’s why it receives the rating I’ve given it, and it’s also why I think everyone should read it, even if you haven’t read any of the other books. 
  2. Love. It seems obvious that love would be one of the emotions I felt about this book as it’s a romance. However, the love I’m referring to is an appreciation for the characters of this story. I fully love Milo and Sara. These are regular people. There are no billionaires waiting to sweep the heroine away; there are no mafia kings/queens; there is no royalty. Milo and Sara are just plain blue-collar people who find their soulmate in each other. And I think it’s important to understand the significance of that because it’s a trademark, I think, of Perry’s writing. She writes regular folk who live out their somewhat regular stories on the page and fall in love with the person he/she is destined for. And Milo and Sara are no different. To Sara, Milo is extraordinary (and he thinks the same of Sara). However, as it seems, to most of the other characters, they are unremarkable. They are simply fated for each other, so they see the beauty in each other. That’s the charm of this story. It’s why love is front and center in talking about these characters. It’s real, and it connects the reader into Perry’s story. Easily. 
  3. Angst. While Milo and Sara are easy characters, there are characters in this story who provide the angst, a trademark of a Perry story. This isn’t rom-com, and it isn’t heavy angst. But there is something about this story that pulls at your soul. Sara’s mother can’t love Sara in the way that she needs to be loved, and this creates complications. Once again, it also connects readers to this reality. Many of us have felt this in our lives. Yet, Perry gives Sara someone who loves her enough that the angst is only temporary. There is also a situation of sexual harassment in this romance. I don’t want to reveal anything more about it, but it too adds layers to a seemingly simple book. Above all that is the connotation of the name the Candle Palace. I will absolutely not reveal its significance here. Just understand that it’s another layer to Sara and Milo’s book. 

If this review reads like a profession of love to Devney Perry’s intelligence as a writer, well, then so be it. I was ecstatic to read this book because I knew she would offer us the meaning of love through Milo and Sara’s story. Unremarkable, everyday people, soul-deep love, and loving beyond the outside describe the power behind Devney Perry’s The Candle Palace. If you love Devney Perry, you will be forever grateful for this story. If you haven’t read her books, then you’re missing out on immaculate story-telling. 

In love and romance,

✍🏻 Professor Romance’s 5++⭐️ Review: A. Jade’s Cruel Prince ✍🏻

Overall Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️++

How do you know if a book is a 5 star read? I think that’s always the question when you sit down to review a book. For me, it comes down to two things: does the book make me feel? Does it elicit any level of emotion from me? And secondly, is there some degree of believability to the story or the characters? For me, tied to that believability is the authenticity of emotion. Are the feelings I’m feeling (anger, sadness, frustration, happiness, joy, etc) true feelings? Even more, where do those feelings spring from? Has the writer hit to my most basic emotions? What bruises from my past does the writer press on with his/her characters and/or story? All of these questions drive my reviews even when the subject matter of a book isn’t anything I’ve experienced or far from the experiences in my past. 

Ashley Jade’s Cruel Prince shouldn’t really capture my attention. I’m a woman in her 40s with a young adult son who is far past the “new adult” experience. Should I really want to read about the romance of teens who are burgeoning into adulthood? This has been a personal question since I’ve noticed a bit of a surge in the New Adult romance genre. But here’s the thing. Ashley Jade’s Cruel Prince is so well written that you can’t help but need to read it. For me, it’s one of the best of this genre this year. And why? Because she crafts characters and storylines that hit to the core of the truth of feelings. Even in the darkest moments of this book, I believe the motivations of her characters driving their actions, that I don’t look at the story from the perspective of a 40-something woman or the mom of a young adult. I can find some piece of myself in the a-hole emotionally complex hero and the subversive powerful heroine. From my perspective, being able to craft this relationship between the reader and the story’s characters is the genius of this book. 

At its core, Cruel Prince is a character study in the reciprocity of pain. There are various levels of emotional pain perpetrated on the characters of this story. There are no redeeming adults in this story; the main characters, the teens of this story, are the most mature people in this book. As such, the adults in their emotional neglect and selfishness have created these kids who must learn to handle life and trauma on their own. From Jace’s inner guilt and heavy feelings of personal responsibility for his siblings to Dylan’s feelings of being unloved to Oakley’s father’s censure and step-mother’s selfishness, the pain inflicted by physical, mental, and emotional trauma embody these characters, make them who they are. It’s this embodiment of pain that draws you as a reader to them, no matter your age or background. Reading their experiences and empathizing with their feelings, even their actions (yes, even when Jace is horrible to Dylan or other characters I understand his motivations; I empathize with him and his pain), are what kept me reading this book overnight instead of sleeping. I needed to know that they would be “okay” in the end, so the characters of Cruel Prince are what engaged me in the story: Jace’s perpetual malice to cover his pain and guilt, Dylan’s internal strength to endure the people who mete out pain on her, Oakley’s humor and drug use to cover his pain from not really being seen, Sawyer’s insecurity about herself even as she lives in her truth, and Cole and Bianca’s guilt and lack of parental direction. This is Ashley Jade’s strength; it’s what makes her writing deep and engaging because she magnifies the human experience in her characters. It’s also why people are rabid for her books. 

Because I believe in her characters, I have a horrible habit of wanting to “chat” with her through comments on Facebook. I oftentimes forget that they are her babies, and I make selfish comments that might be construed as not believing in Ashley as their creator. This is furthest from the truth. I believe in Ashley Jade’s vision, as, I’ve noted above, she makes her characters believable for me. For my selfish comments, I am sorry, but I think it shows my belief in her writing genius. At least, that’s what I’ve hoped she might see. 

Along with the development of character, the storyline is a mighty driving force of Cruel Prince. There is definitely typical bully behavior in this romance. There are mistakes, misrepresentations, and falsehoods that keep the reader suspended in the story. The biggest piece of the story isn’t revealed until almost 80ish% in the story, so if you are looking for a quick, easy resolution in Cruel Prince, it isn’t found here. It’s that tension, though, that engages you, keeps you focused on the page. Additionally, this story is mostly focused on Jace and Dylan’s story. However, pieces of other future stories are doled out as little crumbs. Jade provides just enough to pique your curiosity. I think this is important to the story because the angst over the brokenness of Jace and Dylan’s friendship/relationship can feel overwhelming at times. However, with the interjection of other characters and their potential storylines, you receive an interlude that gives you respite for a short time before gutting your heart again with Dylan and Jace’s story. It’s this cycle that drives you forward in the story, thirsting for a happy ending. It’s why I didn’t put this book down until 5 a.m. 

If you are like me and need to feel “all the feels” of a story, then Cruel Prince should be at the top of your list. It’s a complex weaving of pain, brokenness, redemption, humor, and love. It doesn’t matter if you’re a teen, a 20-something, or even an old lady like me because Ashley Jade’s ability to construct the human experience in her characters and their story grips you in Cruel Prince. I may be far, far from teenhood, but the pain of a person’s betrayal and the need to be loved wholly and exclusively are emotions that transcend any age, any time. Ashley Jade’s Cruel Prince delivers on this message, making it one of the best new adult books of this year. 

In love and romance,

“Everyone needs to read this book. ”

– Harloe Rae, USA Today bestselling author.

Broken Knight, an all new standalone about first loves, betrayal and loss from USA Today bestselling author L.J. Shen, is available now!

IMG_1621

Not all love stories are written the same way. Ours had torn chapters, missing paragraphs, and a bittersweet ending.

Luna Rexroth is everyone’s favorite wallflower.

Sweet.

Caring.

Charitable.

Quiet.

Fake.

Underneath the meek, tomboy exterior everyone loves (yet pities) is a girl who knows exactly what, and who, she wants—namely, the boy from the treehouse who taught her how to curse in sign language.

Who taught her how to laugh.

To live.

To love.

Knight Cole is everyone’s favorite football hero.

Gorgeous.

Athletic.

Rugged.

Popular.

Liar.

This daredevil hell-raiser could knock you up with his gaze alone, but he only has eyes for the girl across the street: Luna.

But Luna is not who she used to be. She doesn’t need his protection anymore.

When life throws a curveball at All Saints’ golden boy, he’s forced to realize not all knights are heroes.

Sometimes, the greatest love stories flourish in tragedy.

Excerpt:

Right now I wanted to just be here in silence with my best friend. And somehow, I don’t know how, but Luna sensed it. So we sat there for what felt like two hours but was probably a lot less, until I opened my eyes again. Her eyes were closed, too. I watched her for a while.

When she opened her eyes, it felt like she took something away from me.

“Let’s jump,” she said.

“I’m quite fond of my limbs, Moonshine.”

“Stop being such a big baby.”

“Big, quarterback baby who just finished a football season in one piece and would like to keep all his body parts intact.”

She crawled out of the treehouse and settled on the branch. It was thick, but I doubted it could carry my muscular ass for more than a few seconds before snapping. I rolled my eyes and settled next to her. She slipped her hand in mine.

“Three, two, one.”

It was a short, sweet way down.

Blurb:
Welcome to their kingdom…

I never thought I’d step foot in Royal Manor again.
But four years later, here I am…back to finish my senior year at Royal Hearts Academy.

And forced to face Jace Covington.
My first friend. First crush. First kiss.
The one I left behind.

Only—he isn’t the same boy I gave my heart to.

This new Jace is as cruel as he is gorgeous.
And he’s determined to make my life a living hell.
Along with the rest of his glorified family and crew of tyrants.

They expect me to worship the ground they walk on like everyone else, but I’d rather eat dirt.

If Jace Covington wants me gone…he’ll have to try harder.
Because I’ve never been the kind of girl to play by the rules.

WARNING: Royal Hearts Academy is a New Adult/High School series of standalones filled with drama, a touch of angst, and boys who are bad to the bone.

This series is recommended for mature readers due to graphic language and sexual content.

Excerpt:
“Is that why you wore this sexy little shirt tonight?” His warm breath tickles the side of my neck. “Hoping to get my attention.”

“No.”

That earns me a husky chuckle. “Too bad.” He presses his lips against my throat. “Because it’s working. You have all my attention.” He walks his fingers down my torso. “Question is…what are you going to do with it?”

✍🏻 Professor Romance’s 5++⭐️ Review: Ilsa Madden-Mills’s I Hate You ✍🏻

Overall Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️++

“…but for the first time in my life, the walls around my heart were cracked, just a little, and even though I had my rules, I wanted him to be the one who stuck around. I wanted him to ask for more.”

Brokenness. Each of us carries parts of ourselves that have been broken by past traumas/experiences. To protect those broken parts, we have constructed a wall. Depending on the type of breakage, that wall may be thick and high, or it might be something that can be penetrated by another person. It really depends on the experience or trauma that broke us. This is a common theme in romance. For me, it’s a theme that pushes up against my own broken pieces or soul bruises. And when this happens, magic occurs in romance. At least, that’s the situation for me. 

Ilsa Madden-Mills’s newest book, I Hate You, interrogates the idea of brokenness and insecurity. The book gives us the story of Blaze and Charisma. Six months prior to the story, Blaze publically breaks up with Charisma with only the comment that she “isn’t his type.” As the new school year approaches, Charisma, still struggling with Blaze’s actions, questions her self-worth from his perspective. On seeing each other for the first time since the break-up, it’s still clear there is chemistry between them. Blaze still has eyes for Charisma, and he decides to try to build a friendship with her, but nothing more because he finds completion near her. Both of them are conflicted as their friendship progresses. Charisma is still angry with Blaze because she has no real closure to the break-up, and Blaze believes he isn’t the right person for Charisma. Unfortunately, their chemistry is undeniable. Will Charisma and Blaze find peace together at the end of this story? That IS the question. 

This story, my friends, is a slow burn. It’s the perfect building of two souls’ need for each other. Blaze and Charisma are the same person just with a different but similar issue. What I loved about this story the most is these characters. In the two books prior to this one, I Bet You and I Dare You, Blaze and Charm provide some of the humor in the story. Yet, in reading I Hate You, we realize that those are simply fronts to much deeper issues. I won’t share their brokenness here because I want the reader to experience it. I don’t want to spoil the depth of their hurts, but you must know that Madden-Mills has crafted these complex, profound characters to draw your heart into their story. I will say that these two, Blaze and Charisma, hit up against my “soul bruises” so much so that I connected with them deeply. I think every chapter found me with tears in my eyes as I empathized with their struggles and hurts. In fact, the final chapter before the epilogue found me lying in bed, bawling like a baby. To me, that’s what makes Madden-Mills a fantastic writer. I’ve read her entire book list, and I continuously go back to her because she realizes people like me on the page, even if their experiences are different from my own. That’s her writing genius. 

I love both Blaze and Charisma, but my heart really belongs to Blaze. Madden-Mills gives him this external bravado, but a child-like broken spirit. As such, my heart rent for him time and time again as he missed Charisma’s soul trying to touch his own. This story is definitely about miscommunication. These two think they know each other, but they don’t really know how to read each other. This is what leads to the slow burn of this story. Their story takes most of the book to tell, and it’s really the last chapter before the epilogue where it finds its falling action resolved. Your heart will wrench for these two because they can’t see their potential for most of the book. But that’s the beauty of I Hate You. I’ve read other books that create this same tension, but it stops me at some point. It takes me a bit of time to finish reading the book. However, I picked this book up at 9 p.m. at night, and I didn’t put it down until 4 a.m. when I finished it. I was drawn into Blaze and Charisma’s story because Madden-Mills gives you characters that you need to know will be alright at the end. And, boy, does she offer that here. 

In looking at her books, I Hate You is now probably my favorite Madden-Mills book to date. I never begin reading a book to find the “best” one. But Blaze and Charisma captured my heart from the first to the last page. In spending a couple of days reflecting on it, I’ve come to understand why I love it so much. It’s quite simple: my internal broken parts find themselves in the pages of this book. Ilsa Madden-Mills’s careful construction of these divine characters in I Hate You will find purchase in your heart. It surely did in mine. This book is like Charisma to Blaze: “a fire in my hands.”

“She knows my heart. Her name is written there. “

In love and romance,

Professor A

A Standalone Contemporary Romance

New York Times, USA Today, and #1 Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author

Penelope Ward

SYNOPSIS

It was the summer of my life.

I’d met the guy of my dreams.

Unfortunately, he was the son of my uppity employer—and very much off-limits.

But Gavin was a rebel. He knew his mother would disown him if she found out about us; in his eyes, we just had to be careful.

He never treated me as his mother did—like hired help.

Instead, Gavin put me on a pedestal and loved me harder than I’d ever been loved in my life.

 What a summer it was.

Until it all ended—badly.

I was never supposed to see Gavin again.

That didn’t stop me from thinking about him every day for ten years.

I knew little about his life now, just that he was an entrepreneur living an ocean away.

When a twist of fate had me working again in the very place our love affair started a decade earlier, I knew it was only a matter of time before I might see him again.

But I wasn’t prepared.

What if he hated me?

What if he loved someone else now?

I wasn’t prepared for all the unknowns.

And most of all, I wasn’t prepared for today to be the day he came back.

I HATE YOU BANNER .jpg

I want you . . . even when I hate you.

I Hate You, an all-new enemies to lovers sports romance from Wall Street Journal bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills, is available now!

IMMIHateYouBookCover55x85_HIGH.jpg

Blaze Townsend: I hate you.

Charisma Rossi: I hate you more.

She’s been expecting this ever since their latest showdown. She had good reason.

Hottest guy she’s ever seen.

Former fling.

Dumped her in front of her friends.

At her own party.

So no, she’s not about to forgive and forget just because he sits next to her in class.

He thinks all he has to do is turn on those baby blues, and she’ll melt right back into his arms. Please.She’d be crazy to let this cocky player affect her again. (Tell that to her body.)

Charisma Rossi.

Nerd girl with a dash of bad.

The one who got under his skin.

The one he cut loose.

Blaze knows she’s the riskiest prospect at Waylon University, but none of the interchangeable girls he hooks up with have ever made him feel the way she did. There’s absolutely no way he can have the girl and the game.

So why can’t he stop trying to win her back?

Can this wide receiver score the girl or will he make the biggest fumble of his life

✍🏻 It’s FINALLY Here! L.J. Shen’s Broken Knight is LIVE, and it’s $2.99 for a limited TIME! This is a definite one-click! ✍🏻

BROKEN KNIGHT BANNER.jpg

“Everyone needs to read this book. “

– Harloe Rae, USA Today bestselling author.

Broken Knight, an all new standalone about first loves, betrayal and loss from USA Today bestselling author L.J. Shen, is available now!

IMG_1621.jpg

Not all love stories are written the same way. Ours had torn chapters, missing paragraphs, and a bittersweet ending.

Luna Rexroth is everyone’s favorite wallflower.

Sweet.

Caring.

Charitable.

Quiet.

Fake.

Underneath the meek, tomboy exterior everyone loves (yet pities) is a girl who knows exactly what, and who, she wants—namely, the boy from the treehouse who taught her how to curse in sign language.

Who taught her how to laugh.

To live.

To love.

Knight Cole is everyone’s favorite football hero.

Gorgeous.

Athletic.

Rugged.

Popular.

Liar.

This daredevil hell-raiser could knock you up with his gaze alone, but he only has eyes for the girl across the street: Luna.

But Luna is not who she used to be. She doesn’t need his protection anymore.

When life throws a curveball at All Saints’ golden boy, he’s forced to realize not all knights are heroes.

Sometimes, the greatest love stories flourish in tragedy.
