Beautiful Deep by Jordyn White (Beautiful Rivers #4)

Beautiful Deep (Beautiful Rivers Book 4) by [White, Jordyn]4.5 Stars

It feels like it’s been forever since I was able to dive into a Beautiful Rivers book, and it made me so. incredibly. happy to finally have a new one in my hands. First of all, I need to note that Jordyn White is the author formerly known as J.L. White. The name change is such a good thing, and definitely fits her book “vibe” better.

Moving on to the book, the instant attraction Rayce feels towards Emma is perfection. It’s even better when that attraction turns into a bit of a “forbidden” romance when he finds out that she is actually an employee of the resort. Emma is trying not the make the same mistake twice, but Rayce is undeniable.

I’m a little sad that this was the last book in this series. I’ve grown to love this family and this final glimpse into their lives didn’t feel like nearly enough. Each of these books is a complete standalone, so you could start with Beautiful Deep if you wanted to… but if you start at the beginning with Beautiful Mine, then your patience will be rewarded with a well-rounded series. I for one, can’t wait to to see what Jordyn White writes next.

Beautiful Dark by J.L. White (Beautiful Rivers #3)

5 Stars

I finished Beautiful Fall last night, and immediately dove into Beautiful Dark. I absolutely needed to know who Mason Reeves was before I went to bed, and lucky for me you find out pretty early on what his mystery is. Cliffhanger resolved, I was able to get some sleep.

This was my favorite installment of the series thus far. Once I opened it back up today, I binge-read the rest of the book in one sitting. IT. WAS. GOOD. I’ve always had a soft spot for Corrine and this book just solidified why I love her. Her battle with cancer seems to be over, but it still has a  terrible hold on her mental health. Mason is big, masculine, and protective. He’s just what Corrine needs and watching their relationship evolve kept the biggest grin on my face.

Now just starts the wait for Rayce’s book.

Beautiful Fall by J.L. White (Beautiful Rivers #2)

5 Stars

J.L. White’s writing is like comfort food for me. Whenever I pick up one of her books I know I’m going to get a good romance with lots of steam. Beautiful Fall was no exception.

This is the second book in the Beautiful Rivers series and I have a feeling I’m going to love this series just as much as I loved her original Firework Girls books. The more I’m drawn into the Rivers family, the more I want to hear about them. I love the relationship they have, and it makes my heart happy to read about them. Brett and Lizzy are perfect together. Their relationship feels like it’s coming from a genuine place. You don’t wonder why they are together, you KNOW why they are together. And can we swoon for a minute over how sweet Brett is with his son. Dads that are great with their kids make me happy.

This book does end with a perfect happily ever after. I was all smiles and happy tears at the end. Nothing better. While the romance does have a happy ending, there is a subplot that is left as a cliffhanger. No worries though, because the next book comes out tomorrow. I’ll definitely be reading it.

You don’t have to read Beautiful Mine to read this book, but I would definitely recommend it. Each book helps build on the dynamics between the characters, and some subplots would be better understood because of this. You can read my original review of Beautiful Mine here.

Beautiful Mine by J.L. White Release Day!


When fellow Californians Whitney Spencer and Connor Rivers meet in the most unlikely of places—on the Camino pilgrimage in Spain—they fall head first into a brief, impassioned love affair. But Whitney’s on her way back to her career in San Francisco, and Connor is a world traveler whose restless spirit has yet to be captured by anyone.

Tragedy strikes and Connor is called home to help his siblings run the family business, the Rivers Paradise Resort. Yet the adventurer inside him hasn’t gone away; in fact, his wanderlust is on the verge of destroying his family’s fragile stability.

When Whitney’s career brings her to Connor’s resort, the sparks between them flare. Will her reappearance be enough to tame him? Can their love be enough, or are they destined for another gut-wrenching goodbye?

Author’s note: Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

J.L. White is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. I’ve just started reading her books this year, and am becoming more and more of a fan with each one. Beautiful Mine is the first book in her new Beautiful Rivers series. You can read my original review here.

Beautiful Mine by J.L. White (Beautiful Rivers Series)

5 Stars

I’m going to come right out and say it. I wasn’t expecting to love this book. The blurb didn’t capture my interest, and if it hadn’t been J.L. White, I would have passed over it. J.L. White is a new discovery for me, and I’ve been slowly working my way through her Firework Girls books. I’ve enjoyed those books so much, and have been savoring them. They are a treat I get to read when I’ve read a couple of bad books and need some relief. Or when I’m ahead on my deadlines. But I know going in that I’m going to get a great, steamy romance. I shouldn’t have had any doubts about this one. I LOVED this book!

Whitney meets Connor while on a pilgrimage across Spain. Whitney’s journey isn’t about religion, it’s about soul searching. She has dedicated her life to her job at a charitable organization that helps child refugees, but her life is unbalanced and she needs to take a step back.

Connor suffers from Wanderlust and travels the world seeking people and experiences. He lives on his boat and sails wherever his heart desires. He changes locations on a whim, sometimes staying only a few days… other times a few months. When he meets Whitney on the Camino del Santiago the attraction is instant and intense. They begin a brief, passionate love affair that leaves a mark on both of their hearts. At the end, they say their goodbyes and go their separate ways.

Many months later, they run across each other at Connor’s family resort. It’s like they were never separated and instantly pick back up where they left off. But the underlying problems are still there. Connor desires to travel the world and be able to change locations at a moments notice and Whitney can’t imagine not having a home base.

And if he did decide to leave, who says he would want me along? Can you still be the wind when you’ve got someone tied to your side?

Because when I’m really honest with myself, I’m afraid he’s still the wind, and I’m over here completely delusional about my ability to capture him.

 I. Couldn’t. Stop. Reading. I started it this morning, intending to only read for half an hour or so…. then the book was over and I was in love. These are the type of characters I read for. These are the type of relationships I crave seeing on a page. The romance was steamy. The sex scenes didn’t feel repetitive, and I genuinely cared about what happened to everyone involved. I can’t wait for the next book.

Definitely an 18+ book.

Beautiful Mine is releasing August 30, 2016.
