Three New Release Romance Book Reviews | (Helena Hunting, R.S Grey & Meghan Quinn)

Three of my go-to authors released new books all within the same week and if you have a similar taste in books to me and you mainly read romance, you need to check out these three titles immediately! All three are available on Kindle Unlimited as well.
Love the One You Hate by R.S Grey

Nicholas Hunt is the man I hate.
For good reason.

His opinion of me is tainted by prejudice even before my arrival at his grandmother’s estate, and my first impression of him is just as abysmal.

His arrogance and icy demeanor make it clear that he’s the type of man who’s best handled at a distance.

Fortunately, space shouldn’t be an issue inside this Gilded Age mansion and its lush gardens. If I stick with the servants and he keeps to his sailboat and vintage Porsche, we should hardly cross paths at all. Unfortunately, at Rosethorn, I find that all roads eventually lead to Nicholas Hunt.
Sparks fly as we spar at the dinner table. Fighting words are flung in the shadows of the palatial halls. 
We hang suspended in our hatred of one another, painfully oblivious to the heat and tension that build with every moment we’re left alone. We’re liable to kill one another, I think…right up until my eyes land on his lips and a new feeling grips hold of me: lust. 
What’s worse? 
He knows it.
They say you should keep your enemies close, but when Nicholas tightens his grip on my waist and draws me near, I’m not sure if it’s out of loathing or love. 
One thing’s for sure—I intend to find out.

I loved this book and all of the scenery and the mansion that this was set in. This was a little less romancey than the other two in the books but I really liked this one. I gave it 4.5 stars and Nicholas was a character I only half hated if I'm honest. Each of Rachel's books has a completely different vibe and that's why I love them so much. If you liked Arrogant Devil, I think you will really like this one. And if you haven't read Arrogant Devil, I highly recommend it, it's one of my all-time favourites. 

A Secret for a Secret by Helena Hunting

My name is Ryan Kingston, and I’m a rule follower. I’ve never been in a fistfight. I always obey the speed limit. I don’t get drunk, and I definitely don’t pick up random women at bars. Except the night I found out that my whole existence has been a lie.I got drunk. And picked up a stranger.Her name was Queenie, and she was everything I’m not: reckless, impulsive, and chaotic. We did shots and traded secrets. And ended up naked at my place.She left me a thank-you note in the morning and her panties as a parting gift. But no way to contact her.Six weeks later I’m sitting in the first official team meeting of the season, and there she is. I neglected to mention that I’m the goalie for Seattle’s NHL team.And Queenie? Turns out she’s the general manager’s daughter.
Sports romances are some of my favourite books to read and this was a five-star read. It had some unexpected drama in it that honestly shocked me but it benefit the story. Both of these characters are complete opposites but they just make sense together. One thing I love about Helena's romances is that they aren't predictable, there is always something in them that I wasn't expecting. I really liked the previous book in this series too, it's one of my all-time favourite books! 

The Modern Gentleman by Meghan Quinn

Have you ever hit rock bottom? 
I embarrassingly have.

It’s why I’m wearing my girl's decorative scarf over my head, clutching her lady drink to my chest, and singing ever so softly to Joni Mitchell while swaying back and forth. 

This is what therapists refer to as LOSING IT. 

Oldest story in the book: boy meets girl, boy falls for girl, boy screws up MASSIVELY, girl tells boy to suffocate in the fruits of his very own unborn children. 

Heard it before? I'm sure you have.
So what's so different about this story? Well, it's about me, The Modern Gentleman, New York City's top advice columnist, and my rather ungraceful downfall from my pristinely polished pedestal.

It's about a girl I met who threw all my proven theories to the wind and left me awkward, needy, and absolutely head-over-wingtipped shoes in love.

This is a story about June Lacy and how she single-handedly dismantled The Modern Gentleman.

I adore Meghan and I think she might be my favourite author. She makes me swoon, she makes me laugh and she makes me mad but I can't get enough of her writing. This book is a little different than her other rom-coms and it will make sense when you read it. But Meghan is a genius and this book made me so happy! The ending was so good, it was if it was written for me, and I don't want to spoil a thing. I gave this book five stars.
