A Few Quick Clean Romance Recommendations

Over the Christmas/New Years break I read a few of my happy place reads.  I wanted to do a quick share of them.

First up, Third Time's the Charm!
Liz, Gemma, Arie, Jess, and Drew have been best friends since creating the “Five” at Aliso Creek High School. But that was over ten years ago, and each is still trying to find that perfect someone . . . if perfect is even possible.

In fact, Liz Carlson will settle for a normal man. A normal man with a job, that is. Married twice, then divorced twice, Liz’s rose-colored glasses fell off and shattered on the ground a long time ago. Her main focus now is raising her six-year-old daughter and surviving long days at work on her feet as a hairdresser. When Sloane Branden answers her call for help, quite literally, Liz doesn’t even give him a second glance. She’s sworn off dating for as many years as it takes, and it seems that Sloane has done the same after his own tumultuous marriage. But when Liz realizes that Sloane defies every stereotypical deadbeat she’s dated, she might just find room in her heart and discover the third time’s the charm.
I just loved this super quick novella by Heather Moore. The romance is charged and there is some good kissing, I'm tellin' ya! The only problem? I wanted MORE! I would love to see an extended version of this one. More details of the ex and all that. More kissing. :) I really enjoyed this one and can't wait to see the others that follow.  You can purchase it at Amazon.

Next up is Kissing Kendal. . .
Kendall Grisbaum is finally taking charge of her life—pouring her heart into opening a new bakery business and even allowing her best friend Georgie to play matchmaker for her. Trouble is, the one guy she secretly wants is Georgie’s older brother, Brad, who is decidedly off limits.

Brad can’t seem to get his little sister’s best friend out of his mind. He and Kendall used to be close friends, too, and as a local policeman, Brad can’t help but play protector, looking out for Kendall. When he offers to help her renovate her new bakery space on the side, their friendship—and their attraction—flares back to life.

Amid the temptation of doughnut muffins and blueberry cobbler, a new temptation draws them both closer. Can they take a chance on love when it means risking their friendship, even when not doing so risks everything?

This was another sweet romance.  It has the sizzle and romance I love.  Kendall is trying to carve out a new life after losing her husband.  With the help of her friends she is trying to step out and try living again, follow old dreams.  Brad has been looking out for Kendall even though she doesn't know it.  When he finally steps back into her life, the sizzle begins.  But Brad is a cop and Kendall is afraid of losing another person she loves to a dangerous profession.  

I love the cover too.  :)  You can purchase Kissing Kendall here.

There was some mild swearing in this book.

And last but not least, One Classic Latin Lover, Please

If you love a good romance with plenty of kissing and sizzle, Marcia McClure is your woman.  This book had all that and more.  It was a super pleasure read for me and I really enjoyed it.  Sometimes in books we have to wait forever for that one perfect toe curling kiss.  I love when a book starts out that way within the first chapter and keeps going from there.  ;)  This was one fun book.  You can pick it up on Marcia's website HERE.

This book had some mild swearing as well.

Have you read any clean romance reads lately you can recommend to me?  I'm always on the prowl for a new one.  :)
