⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Light and fun

This was such a fun read! Low angst and playful, it pairs a moody businessman with a mousy letter carrier who gets in over her head. I loved the opposites attract vibe and watching this self-proclaimed villain get tamed by our sweet, demure heroine. Their interactions brightened up the story, and that's really my main...

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Forbidden fire

This SMOKING HOT novella wastes zero time getting right down to business. If that's what you're in it for, then you're going to love the forbidden, tense dynamic of this quick and dirty read. The writing style feels intelligent and sexy and filled with all kinds of (unfulfilled) potential, but if you're looking for a... Continue Reading →

Blog Birthday Celebration

One year ago today, JeevesReads.com was born! While I've been reviewing ARCs for two years (and reading romance MUCH longer than that), it wasn't until this time last year that I decided to start up my blog. There was a little bit of trial and error to the process, but things really kicked into high... Continue Reading →

WEEKLY WRAP-UP: October 16th

It was an AWESOME release week, with several 5-star reads and a few more that were very close to achieving that mark. I enjoyed each of this week's releases in their own way, from the steamy Take a Number to the sexual-tension filled Twisted Love to the fun Single Dad Seeks Juliet. Most of this... Continue Reading →

WEEKLY WRAP-UP: October 9th

It was very much a week of hits and misses. I read two great rom coms (The Bookworm's Guide to Dating and In a Holidaze) that really hit the spot. Both are fun, feel good reads with minimal angst and maximum banter. I also read two books that missed the mark in a big way,... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️ (Mostly) bad

Let’s just say that I had a full rant review written up, and I just couldn’t bring myself to post it. Because I like this author’s books - I’ve read ten of them - but this was BAD. Like, really bad. Like, I only finished it out of morbid curiosity bad. I’ll admit to being... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️ Hot mess

Um. I'm going to attempt to write this review without giving more than basic spoilers, but there's a lot to unpack. So fair warning. It... wasn't great. I've read books by this author before, so I was intrigued by the blurb and looking forward to a mysterious, unique story. But this is the hottest of... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Emotional and sexy

This is classic Kaswell, complete with the tortured tattoo artist, constant sexual thoughts, conversations about fancy coffee, and distinctive writing style. And there are pros and cons to that. Obviously, I like her work because I keep coming back for more, but we're definitely reaching the point where I know EXACTLY what to expect from... Continue Reading →

WEEKLY WRAP-UP: October 2nd

What a WEIRD week! I almost forgot to put together this week's wrap-up because... well, the news is crazy, lol. But there were some excellent new romances this week - one made my Best of September list (Swing and a Mishap), one will likely make my Best of October list (Cruel Paradise), and another was... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Soapy and sweet

I actually really liked a significant portion of this book, so I’m kinda disappointed that it wound up being a 3-star read for me. But the beginning and the end each lose it a star (more on that in a minute). It was entertaining, a little different than the norm, and a combination of sweet... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Problematic

This is one of those books where no rating seems like the correct one. I loved parts of it and hated others, but the lingering feeling is disappointment. Disappointment that the ending is so incredibly problematic and rushed. Disappointment that the relationship never felt like more than sex. Disappointment that a book with so much... Continue Reading →

WEEKLY WRAP-UP: September 27th

This week had a little of everything, from steamy to sweet, light to angsty, popular to polarizing. I read an outstanding emotional romance (Crazy to Love You), as well as a great steamy rom-kinda-com (Not Just Friends). The more popular romances let me down, from the problematic Playing with Fire to the mislabeled Stories of... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Bait and switch

So. I was woefully unprepared for the content of this anthology, and there's a good chance that you might be too. The blurb indicates that it's filled with "sweet and sexy romance novellas" that will get you in the fall spirit. Well, the first one definitely will. But after that, this anthology kicks the steam... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Problematic hero

Well, she tried to change things up, she really did. This has some noticeable differences from anything I've read by the author before, but still feels very much like one of her books. Including the level of OW drama and the problematic hero. West is not Hunter-level of problematic - thank God - but his... Continue Reading →

WEEKLY WRAP-UP: September 18th

What a great release week! While not everything was a total winner, I read a few outstanding books this week, and a few more that were a lot of fun. The vibe was definitely light and sexy, with several low angst reads topping the list. Two excellent books from two of my favorite authors (Flirting... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Just okay

I’ve been meaning to check out this author’s work for awhile now because her covers are so fun and the blurbs sound enticing. But this was sort of a forgettable read for me. It was fine. There’s nothing bad but also nothing particularly compelling about it, and I’m probably going to forget that I even... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Soapy fun

With so much drama that you'll think you're watching a soap opera, this light, fun romance has humor and heart. I always look forward to this author's easy, sexy rom coms, and that's exactly what this is. It starts with the steam, then transitions into a drama-filled but low angst read. I loved our stoic,... Continue Reading →

15 Featured Freebies & Deals

There are so many awesome deals going on right now! It was a relatively quiet release week, so I thought I’d share a list of 15 of the best current freebies and deals. It's the perfect time to read those books you've been meaning to get to, or to discover a few you didn't know... Continue Reading →

WEEKLY WRAP-UP: September 11th

This week... was actually lamer than I expected! There was a definite lull in releases because of Labor Day and kids going back to school. There was also one new release that I was really excited about, and it ended up being a major disappointment. The good news? I've spent the last several days reading... Continue Reading →

WEEKLY WRAP-UP: September 4th

September started off RIGHT, with an awesome release week. While I enjoyed all of this week's new books, I'd be very surprised if two of them (Real Fake Love and Revved to the Maxx) don't make my best of the month list - they were both outstanding. If you read my Teaser Tuesday post (found... Continue Reading →

WEEKLY WRAP-UP: August 28th

It was a busy, busy release week that brought some great new books! While not everything was a winner, a few of my favorite authors released new books and they made for some very solid reads. I was also introduced to a debut author whose work I'd love to check out more of, so this... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Hot and cold

I can't say that I loved it, unfortunately. I read a lot of new adult romance, and it always goes one of two ways: it's either great, or the characters come across as so childish that I just can't handle it. This is the second one. Our heroine spends two years blaming a former friend... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Great hero

I love a hero whose world is turned upside down by his girl, and that’s exactly what happens in this one. It’s sexy, sassy, and wastes no time getting right into the romance. There’s a fine line between instalove and insta-attraction, and this one crossed it a few too many times for me - but... Continue Reading →
