15 Brother’s Best Friend Romances

There are few tropes that I like better than a brother's best friend / best friend's little sister / best friend's brother romance (well, that's a mouthful!). You wanna know why? Because they usually have all of the history that I love about a second chance romance without all of the drama that I hate,... Continue Reading →

15 Unexpected Roommate Romances

After reading a really great roommate romance this week, it got me thinking about how many truly outstanding unexpected roommate romances I've read, especially recently. Admittedly, I am a fake relationship romance lover, and it's a common trope in those books, but there are so many instances where adding in that forced proximity produces combustible...

August was such a BUSY month for new releases, with so many great books to choose from. I enjoyed plenty of romances this month, but these six stand at the top of the pack for me.

Best of July 2020

July was all about exploring the work of new-to-me authors because many of my favorites released books in June. So I think it's only fitting that every single book at the top of my list for the month was written by an author whose work I'm just starting to get familiar with. I loved this... Continue Reading →

15 Slow Burn to SIZZLE Romances

I love all of the tension and the emotional build that comes with a slow burn romance, but I also want there to be a payoff in the end.

15 Bad Boys Who Fall Hard

I love good guy heroes, but sometimes I'm in the mood for a man who is a little more... complicated. A bad boy with a troubled past; a mob boss whose concept of right/wrong straddles a fine line; a great man hiding behind a cocky grin. There are different levels to these bad boys, but... Continue Reading →

Best of May 2020

May was an OUTSTANDING month for romance! I'm pretty sure I rated more books as 5 stars in May than I did in April and March combined.

I've got less patience for books that aren't working for me, and I've been... Continue Reading →

15 Bosses & Billionaires

That's right, we're talking about rich guys. It's a beloved trope for a reason - there's something about a bossy alphahole that sparks sexual tension like nothing else. Whether it's an office romance or a fake relationship, billionaire romances often feature opposites who clash until that tension combusts. Not all of these heroes are billionaires...

15 Light and sexy romances

My go-to weekday reads are always light and a little sexy; romances that lift my spirits and wash away the work day. They don't always have the same level of depth as those intense, angsty reads (and thus don't always earn a 5-star rating from me), but they hold a special place in my heart... Continue Reading →
