Atheists Who Kneel and Pray (Tarryn Fisher)
A messy, whirlwind romance between a flighty English expat, and a believer in true love.
Is this a tale of co-dependency, or of unconditional love? You be the judge.
All I will tell you is that I ugly cried, more like SOBBED so friggin hard and had a book hangover for an entire WEEK.
Talk about cathartic.
P.S. Despite the title, it ain’t religious, folks. But it is damn good.

The One That Got Away (Bethany Chase)
You’re dating a great guy. He’s stable, honest, and treats you wonderfully. And there’s an any-day-now engagement on the horizon, to boot.
Then BOOM: your ex moves back to town.
But not just any old ex. THAT ex: the one that got away.
You could just avoid him, right? Only, you guys share a friend group, so that isn’t so easy to do, after all.
What’s a girl to do?
I can’t say BUT you can find out what Sarina did when she found herself in this exact situation.

Birthday Girl (Penelope Douglas)
How forbidden is TOO forbidden? Would you date someone 18 years your senior, being 19 years old? How about possibly dating your ex’s father?
I sat on the fence for a while before I took the plunge. The forbiddenness of it, I couldn’t. I mean, how taboo is possibly dating your ex boyfriend’s father.
I have to say I’m glad took the plunge because I enjoyed this book so much. I flew through it in 2 days.
