I haven’t done mini reviews in a while (the last one was in September, I saw), so it’s time for another round. This time, I want to focus on some amazing series that I read recently.
Love In O’Leary Series – May Archer
I blazed through the Love in O’Leary series like a freaking steam train. They’re sexy, funny small town romances set in New York with characters that feel real and all the problems small towns can have. Great one-liners and all the feels. Nothing too heavy or angsty, just feel good books. Perfect Sunday afternoon reads. Four books are out plus a few novellas, and more will hopefully follow.
Finding Home Series – Lily Morton
I waited a long time with reading Oz, the first book in Lily Morton’s Finding Home series, and I’ll flat out admit it was because of the cover model. He just didn’t appeal to me. But once I got past that reluctance, I dove in and devoured this series in a few days. These books have amazing characters, hot AF sex scenes (there’s a solo-pleasuring scene in Oz that’s freaking amazeballs), awesome banter, great humor, and honest-to-god romance. Set in Britain with British humor, it doesn’t get more perfect than this.
The Trials of Fear Series – Nicky James
This series is a whole different ballgame than the previous two, but it’s absolutely amazing. The Trial of Fear series all deal with mental illnesses, like phobias and panic disorders. Yes, it’s “heavier” reading and these books generally have a lot more angst than the two series above, but they’re SO good. You’ll root for the characters from page one as you come to understand how they got to where they are…and how they struggle to move forward. Great romances with happy endings without all the problems magically disappearing. I loved these books…and I learned a lot from them as well. Highly recommended.
These are just three series that I read recently and absolutely loved. What are some of your favorite recently read series?
All three series are great but the Trial of fears is amazing – i loved them all.
Haven’t read the first two, but I love Nicky James books. I don’t read very much light romance – but perhaps I should give it a try. Thanks for the reviews

Lily Morton’s books are deceptive because her characters use wit and humor to deflect pain and other uncomfortable emotions. She may not bathe in the tears of her readers like Nicky does, but they are not at all to be mistaken for fluff. Funny, yes. Happy ending, yes. Tons of snark and sarcasm, but they have deep emotions as well.
Love in O’Leary is a great series. Love💜 Love 💙 Love ❤

All three of those are wonderful. I can’t even pick which one I liked best because they all bring something different.
I agree. I love reading different things at different times because it really depends on what I’m in the mood for.

Absolutely loved the Finding Home and Love in O’Leary series! Book 5 of Love in O’Leary releases in a week, and I can’t wait! Lily Morton also released a couple of other spin-off books from Finding Home that are quite good.
I will definitely have to try Trials of Fear.
I loved the A E Via series -Nothing Special! It had all the feels, heat, action, and humor!!
