January was a decent book month for me. I finished 21 books. I gave up on about 10, but I was able to discover some real gems! I gave 8 books 5 STARS!!! Not bad! And, I had a good bunch of honorable mentions.
Let me start with sharing my favorite 2019 read so far ~

So, let me introduce you to my flavor of the day, Brant!
Blurb: A stunning, heartfelt new stand-alone by New York Times best-selling author Mia Sheridan.
Brant Talbot runs a glitzy network of high-end bars in New York City, enjoying all the benefits of the lavish lifestyle he’s worked so hard to achieve. When he learns that his estranged father is dying, he must return to his family’s Kentucky horse farm – and to a past he thought he left behind.
While facing long-buried truths, he collides with his father’s secretary, Isabelle Farris. Despite his undeniable attraction to the beautiful, independent young woman, he sees secrets in her eyes and believes she has designs on Graystone Hill.
Now the one woman he can’t afford to trust is about to become the one he can’t let go.
THIS IS A STAND-ALONE SIGN OF LOVE NOVEL, INSPIRED BY CAPRICORN. Contemporary Romance: Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.
He was even more stunning in person, because he wasn’t only handsome. He was also solid and broad and exuded a masculine intensity that made my heart skitter nervously in my chest.
Yummy, huh?!? Well, his appearance wasn’t all he had going for him!
Belle was an independent woman who wouldn’t react well to being tied to my headboard indefinitely. But Lord, the temptation was strong to do just that.
His alpha protectiveness is HOT!!!
This story is beautifully written and will pull at your heart strings! It’s a love story (#loveafterloss & #cityboycountrygirl), but it’s so much more! There’s mystery and suspense. Familial relationships being restored. Betrayals. All with some steamy chemistry! Oh, and Mia Sheridan very nearly pulled some tears from my usually very dry eyes! There’s real depth to the characters, even the secondary ones, and the plot is laid out perfectly with all its intricate details. Ms. Sheridan just doesn’t disappoint, and I can’t wait to see what she has in store for us next!
I give this one 5 STARS!!!
