January 2023 in Review

Hey there! Is it just me or did January seem to drag? It's a good thing I had some awesome books to keep me occupied. I read some really great ones and did some rereads of two of my favorites on audiobooks as well. Be sure to check out all the details below. 

January 2023 in Review | About That Story

Smoke and Steel (Wild West MC #2) by Kristen Ashley
Smoke and Steel was an excellent read! To say I had a lot of feelings is an understatement but I loved the emotional rollercoaster I was on. It was a seriously fantastic redemption story!

Starting Back by Stephanie Rose
Starting Back was a sweet, super sexy read and I enjoyed every second of it! I had a great time watching Kristina and Leo fall in love. They had a fantastic instant attraction happening and I loved that fire and chemistry between them. It was a wonderful story filled with hope, healing, and love!

Blush (Black Rose #1) by Helen Hardt
Blush was a super entertaining and spicy read! It was quick and easy with likable characters, fun scenes, and smoking hot heat. It made for a great friends-to-lovers story that I enjoyed it!

Forever Bound by Jessica Dall
Forever Bound was a sweet romance and beautiful love story all rolled into one. It was a bit different from what I normally read but I was intrigued the entire time and enjoyed it. It was a good story with a little mystery and supernatural moments woven in.




I love to reread my favorite books on audiobook. To me, it makes the story feel fresh and new even though it's one I already know and love. This month, I listened to:
