WEEKLY WRAP-UP: January 22nd

I found it really difficult to focus on reading this week (insurrection + inauguration = inability to read), but there were two books that easily held my attention - Not My Match and How to Get Lucky. The newest from Madden-Mills took a little time to grow on me, but turned into a very engrossing... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Not what I expected

Here's a little raw honesty: that blurb is terrible, seriously terrible. And I say that as someone who loves this author's books. I went into this one thinking that I was reading a marriage of convenience/second chance kind of story, featuring adult characters. It's actually a high school romance, with a pretty typical good girl/rich... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Misses the mark

Don’t let that adorable cover fool you - this is the steamiest book I’ve read in months, and there’s very minimal comedy. It does have light, rom com-style vibes and a storyline that feels pretty fluffy, but it’s definitely not your typical rom com. For one, this features a group of proudly single, 40ish women... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️ Problematic

It's exceedingly rare that I rate a book as 2 stars, but I had to go there with this one because it didn't work for me on any level. And that's really disappointing, because I usually love this author's work. Granted, second chance romances are often difficult for me, so I'm betting this will work... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Playful and steamy

There's a little tongue in cheek reference to extended separations in this that made me laugh and think, "okay, this series might just be back on track." Because... yeah, I'm still mad about the last one. Thankfully, there's nothing rage-inducing about this love story - it's banter-filled, playful, and STEAMY. Don't get me started on... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Disappointing

I was tempted... to stop reading this a few times. I've read some great books by this author, but unfortunately this is not among them. It quite literally skips over all of the parts where there's actual growth to this relationship, instead focusing on drama that's meant to be mysterious but is really kinda predictable.... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Short and sexy

Short and sexy with just the right amount of holiday sweetness, this felt very much like one of Bladon’s romances. It also felt a little rough around the edges, with some inconsistencies and a few issues that left me scratching my head. It’s still an enjoyable, entertaining read, but certainly not on the same level... Continue Reading →

WEEKLY WRAP-UP: December 18th

It was a 4-star kind of week, both in quantity and quality of new releases. I read some solid romances, but nothing that was a total homerun. The very steamy Blame It on the Champagne was probably the best of the bunch, followed by the sexy, suspenseful This Much is True and the charming You... Continue Reading →

WEEKLY WRAP-UP: December 11th

It was a VERY good release week, with both quantity and quality. I read THREE sexy yet laidback romances about athletes (Floored, The Romantic Pact, and Steele) - each with vastly different storylines but similar feels. I also read a brain-breaking paranormal story (Layla), a couple of solid holiday romances (Not Your Average Vixen and... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Sweet and easy

Loved this hero! This was actually pretty sweet and adorable, with a completely different kind of love story than I'm used to. This married couple already loves each other, and it's that deep love that only comes from years upon years together. Our hero has taken his relationship for granted, and it's only once he's... Continue Reading →

WEEKLY WRAP-UP: December 4th

What a release week! The new month brought so many new romances, and a lot of them were great. My favorites (Hard to Hold and The Revenge Pact) were filled with the kind of sexual tension that keeps you reading late into the night. There were also a couple of solid rom coms (Best Friends... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ SO GOOD

The sexual TENSION between these two is delicious, crackling with chemistry and waiting for the perfect moment to combust. I loved every bit of it. This forbidden romance will have you rooting for the bad guy, the man who wants nothing more than to end the relationship that he helped create - though there's a... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️⭐️ It’s complicated

Thoughts. I've got SO MANY thoughts about this book. There's a lot that I loved about it, from the focus on mental health and self-worth to the compassionate, steadfast hero. I loved the unique feel and the unpredictable storyline. But the romance suffered along the way. Two-thirds of the way into the book, I realized... Continue Reading →

WEEKLY WRAP-UP: November 27th

It feels weird to say that only three new reviews went up this week, because I did a LOT of reading, lol. This was a quiet release week because of the holiday (Happy Thanksgiving, all!), but that is definitely NOT the case next week. I think I've read around 10 December releases already, and I've...
