COVER REVEAL CENTRAL

The covers were just revealed for several books that I'm excited about, so I thought I'd share them all in one place! New releases from two of my very favorite authors, an intriguing quarantine-inspired read, a light, fun forbidden romance, and a re-release from a well known author. Any of them would make great additions... Continue Reading →

WEEKLY WRAP-UP: April 3rd

It was a busy release week with a little something for everyone! Lots of solid books came out, and a lot of them were STEAMY. There were several that I really enjoyed, and one new-to-me author who will be on my radar from now on. If you missed any of the reviews, I’ve got the... Continue Reading →

COVER REVEAL: Fight for Me by Corinne Michaels

Corinne Michaels always has gorgeous covers and this one is no exception! Angst lovers, check out the blurb of this upcoming release below. BLURB: From New York Times Bestselling author Corinne Michaels comes a new emotional and riveting standalone second chance love story. I fell in love with Sydney Hastings when I was ten years... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Good guy hero

This wasn't a homerun for me, but I liked it. An interesting combination of light/emotional and sweet/sexy, this author knows how to write a good love story. I've been looking forward to Makai's story since the first book in the series, and he did not disappoint - a billionaire who is NOT a cocky playboy,... Continue Reading →

New Month, New Deals

⭐️⭐️⭐️ This one hurts

I wish I knew how much I was going to love the second half of this book when I was reading the first, because I had already disconnected from the story by the time I got there. Kristen Callihan is one of my favorite authors and enemies to lovers is my absolute favorite trope, so... Continue Reading →

New releases include a light and fun office romance from Sara Ney, a single dad sports romance from Stacey Lynn, an angsty western romance from Kelly Elliott, and an emotional romance from Shari J. Ryan - so a little something for everyone! Check out the blurbs below for... Continue Reading →

Best of March 2020

I was kinda stingy with my 5-star ratings in March, but the books that managed to rise to the challenge were EXCELLENT, and they're from a pretty eclectic bunch of authors. It seems like the books I was looking forward to the most let me down, and the ones that snuck under my radar rose... Continue Reading →

If you loved The Hating Game…

You're going to fall for this upcoming release from debut author Sarah Hogle! It's everything I love about an enemies to lovers romance... with a twist. Told entirely from the heroine's perspective, we see a relationship that was built on a shaky foundation start to crumble - and it isn't a pretty sight. When you're... Continue Reading →

WEEKLY WRAP-UP: March 27th

Not gonna lie, it was hit or miss for me with this week's new releases! There were a lot of new romances out, and some just worked better for me than others. That being said, there are a couple I'm still thinking about (I'm looking at you, From the First Verse), that I'm intrigued by... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Lackluster hero

The problem with this book? I had ZERO emotional connection to the hero. Our couple didn't even come face-to-face until almost a third of the way in, and once they did, the hero was trying to stay so emotionally distant that I never felt the love. Sure, it was sexy, and there were a few... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Sexy but superficial

Short and steamy, this novella features the same writing quality we've come to know and love from Avery Flynn, but not the character development. It's light and sexy with obvious chemistry between the characters and a distinct insta-love vibe; a quick and fun read that doesn't delve too deep. I've definitely got my issues with... Continue Reading →

TEASER TUESDAY

This week is a BIG week for new releases... though I have very complicated feelings about some of them! You'll get the full scoop when the reviews start hitting the blog, but some of this week's new releases were REALLY difficult to rate. Not all 3 or 4 or 5-star reviews are equal, and that's... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️ Didn’t work for me

I really, really struggled with the writing style on this one. A lot of my favorite books come from this publisher, so I didn't hesitate to check out this new-to-me author, but the extremely internalized, clean, and subdued writing felt more like one of my grandma's romance novels than something from 2020. That combined with... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Humor and heart

Adorable and sexy all at once, this second chance romance features a combination of humor and heart. Orgeron will make you fall for this hero, whose singleminded focus on getting his wife back is downright endearing. He knows he messed up in the past, and there is nothing that will stop him from making things... Continue Reading →

TEASER TUESDAY

Some fantastic romance novels are on the way, so check out the previews below and add some new books to your TBR! Easy to Fall by Willow Winters I'm looking forward to... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ LOVED this

A complete and utter DELIGHT to read, I loved this from the first page to the last. It’s got one incredibly memorable meet cute, so many funny moments, and chemistry that sparks off the page. I wasn’t even expecting the forced proximity, which just heightened all of the emotions and pushed this couple to open... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Sweet, but…

Not gonna lie, I found this to be incredibly frustrating to read. There is no denying that Corinne Michaels is a talented writer, infusing this with so much emotion and creating characters you can root for. There are some sweet and tender moments that will give you all the feels, and the depth of emotion... Continue Reading →

Talking About Tropes: Second Chances

If you’ve been following my reviews for awhile, you may have noticed that, well, this is awkward... I don’t actually like second chance romances. Yes, we’re talking about my LEAST favorite trope - possibly only surpassed by the dreaded SECRET BABY. So you'd better believe that if I rate a second chance romance 5 stars,... Continue Reading →

One or more of these... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Steamy/sweet

Sweet, SEXY, and a little serious, this sports romance has depth without being too heavy. Featuring a couple who found the right person at the wrong time, it's got some seriously smoking chemistry, characters who are easy to like (Cory is all sort of adorable), and a touch of heartache. I'm not gonna lie, I... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️ Got some issues

This has all the bones of a good romance novel, but unfortunately there were more things that I disliked than things I liked. Let's start with the good - I actually really grew to like the hero, who starts out being a real jerk but develops such deep feelings for our heroine that I couldn't... Continue Reading →
