⭐️⭐️ Slow start leads to disconnect

This definitely had its moments but unfortunately they were few and far between. A story about accepting yourself for who you are, it takes awhile to work itself into anything more than over the top comedy, and I’d already disconnected from the story at that point. There is some fun banter and a lively, unpredictable... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Steamy and intense

Prepare yourself for one demanding, dominant alpha hero because this book is smoking hot. Intensely steamy, this marriage of convenience romance features some excellent writing and a complex relationship that evolves as the story goes on. While it took a different direction than I expected, the strength of C.D. Reiss' writing gave this plenty of... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ So very angsty

If you're looking for something with ALL the angst... well, you've found it. This love story is anything but easy, seems impossible at times, and features only small moments of tenderness. There's no doubt that there's some great chemistry between the characters, but I wasn't always convinced that they were meant to be. It's a... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Not my favorite

Fake relationship romance done the Crystal Kaswell way - with a tortured tattoo artist, curvy goth girl, a ton of steam, and a completely distinct writing style - this sexy book is a play on a beloved trope. It’s definitely not my favorite from Kaswell - her books are always steamy but this was like... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ SO GOOD

Well... that was pretty awesome. The absolute perfect way to handle a duet, this has so much sexual tension, chemistry, angst without being agonizing, HEAT without taking things too far, and an ending that just leaves you wanting to start the conclusion as soon as humanly possible. I loved Jasper and Viola together - there... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ LOVED this

This was SO good! It didn’t hook me in immediately, but somehow slowly got under my skin until l was loving every minute of it. It’s real, raw, and understated with dialogue that feels natural and characters who are flawed but realistic. Though it begins with a distinctly enemies to lovers vibe, it slowly transitions... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Steamy conclusion

I had to let myself sit and think on this one before writing my review, because while I enjoyed the story as I was reading it (except for the ending), now that it's over I'm left feeling... unsatisfied. Yes, Nana Malone's writing is solid with interesting, multi-faceted characters, but after spending two books with this... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ SO GOOD

The first half of this book is pure perfection, everything I could want in a romance novel - complex characters, a unique premise, CHEMISTRY that jumps off the page, and dialogue that makes you feel like you’re experiencing the love story as it develops in real time. I absolutely DEVOURED it, loving how much I... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Short and sexy

Quick and sexy, this fake relationship romance doesn't have the same polish as Blakely's newer works but is still a satisfying read. As a novella that was expanded to (short) book length, it's fast-paced and doesn't have the same level of depth I've become accustomed to from Blakely (which I sorely missed at times). That... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Lovable nerdy hero

Loved this nerdy, adorable hero! Opposites definitely attract in this book, which pairs a rock steady, perpetual planner with his niece's feisty teacher. Where Mason is steadfast, loyal, and honest to a fault, Gabby is fiery, outspoken, and vibrant. It's a light and sexy read that moves quickly. I've got two minor complaints (that I'll... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Raw, real, and sexy

A beautifully written book about taking a chance on love after divorce and connecting with the right person at the wrong time, Unbreakable packs an emotional punch. It features a mature heroine whose marriage has recently left her a single mother and a kind, compassionate hero whose own marriage unraveled over struggles with infertility. Harlow...
