“I love the depth and emotion that Blake’s books into her characters. You can really see that this series means a lot to her because there’s a reason for everything. I am someone that appreciates that kind of attention to detail.”

I’m so glad that Toni Blake is going back to write these kind of Contemporaries. In a time when Contemporary Romance is very popular but the focus is usually on being humorous or sexy, I really find myself gravitating to books like Blake’s where there’s a lot of emotion and conflict. I yearn for stories that mean something and I think Toni’s books always have a purpose to them that not everyone appreciates.
I completely enjoy her slower pace writing style. I love the small town feel to the series. I love the depth and emotion that Blake’s books into her characters. You can really see that this series means a lot to her because there’s a reason for everything. I am someone that appreciates that kind of attention to detail.
THE GIVING HEART has a little bit of a wintery theme to it, which most of you already know I love. The couple kind of start off with a rough patch. Lila kind of doesn’t like Beck because of his job and in her effort to preserve Summer Island, they do have some conflicts to overcome. But I do like Blake’s type of male characters because they are never perfect but they are still admirable and alluring in their own ways.
I’m hoping Blake had continue on with this series with many books. I just love the setting and the whole vibe of the series, so if you’re looking for something with a lot of heart in it, then this is a series that you much check out.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.
When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
