Charming, Sweet, and Beautifully Affecting


What a charming, sweet, and beautifully affecting story! Dear Adam by Kelsie Stelting was such an awesome and delightful read that had me hooked from the beginning and left me feeling so full of happy in the end.

This story had everything I look for in a YA contemporary romance. The writing style was heartfelt and so amazing. I enjoyed both the POVS and totally loved reading the emails between Emerick and Nora. Those were definitely some of the best parts of this book. The characters were wonderfully realistic and relatable that it was difficult not to like them and cheer them on. The plot was charming, funny, and incredibly entertaining. There’s truly so many things to love and rave about this novel and I absolutely enjoyed everything about it. Stelting created such a beautifully meaningful story with humor and a lot of heart.

Emerick and Nora were fantastic characters and I adored reading about them. They were both dealing with their own personal issues and problems so I really enjoyed seeing them grow and change over the course of the story. I thought their chemistry was great and I loved how their relationship slowly blossomed into something more.

Dear Adam was an unputdownable story about friendship, honesty, self-discovery, and love. With plenty of adorably heartwarming scenes, light and fun moments, and a swoon worthy romance, this book had me smiling, laughing, and feeling all the wonderful FEELS. I highly recommend you add this delightfully entertaining book to your TBR!

I received an advance reader copy of this book from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review.



I think the world’s a better place when people do what makes them happy.


We can’t go back. We can only go forward, knowing what we know, and make the best of the situation.


You are not your parents or your past or what other people think of you. You are who you choose to be when no one’s watching.


And some people you thought you’d never connect with might just be exactly what you needed.


Thanks for reading my review for this book. Until next time lovelies!!


Cover Reveal – Gone for You by Jennifer Van Wyk



GFY - CR banner.jpg

Gone For You, an all-new small town, second chance romance from Jennifer Van Wyk, is coming March 26th!


Cover Designer: Juliana with Jersey Girls Designs



I wasn’t expecting to fine you. The night was only supposed to be a celebration for my friend, but I couldn’t stop my heart, or body, from being drawn to you.

Then I got to know you, and you chipped away every wall I’d built around my heart.

You don’t know how many times I found reasons to talk to you. To see you.

It has to stop.

There’s distance between us I can’t control.

Damn you and your dimple for being so irresistible.

I wish I wasn’t so Gone for You.


I knew I wouldn’t be able to let you go the night you walked into my bar. Everything in me screams to keep you close.

I’m ready to move forward, to stop making excuses to see you, but I know you need more time.

You’ve created this distance between us to protect your heart, but you have to know it’s safe with me.

The moments you give me aren’t enough.

I want you forever and I’ll stop at nothing to make it happen.

After all, I’m so Gone for You.




From the Ground Up was Jennifer’s first published novel and now that she was bitten by the writing bug, has no intention of ever stopping. Jennifer makes her home in small town Iowa with her high school sweetheart, three beautiful, hilarious and amazing kids, one crazy Jack Russell terrier. This is where her love for all things reading, baking, and cooking happen. Jennifer’s family enjoys camping, boating, and spending time outside as much as possible. You’ll be her best friend if you can make her laugh and follow up with asking her what to read next. When she’s not writing, you can find her cheering the loudest at her kids’ sporting events (read as: embarrassing them), sipping coffee or iced tea out of a mason jar with her Kindle in her lap or binging on Netflix.
