⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ An angsty ride

That cliffhanger! I am so ready to read the conclusion to this angsty, new adult trilogy because this couple has me hooked. Piper Lawson's writing is excellent (as always), so she's got me rooting for Annie and Tyler despite the complicated nature of their relationship. It's angsty and engrossing, with tension and plenty of drama.... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Light and easy

What an adorably sweet romance! This one is light and playful throughout, with great chemistry and a touch of steam. It's got a nice small town feel and characters you can root for, pairing a woman who has been planning her wedding for years with a guy who can't picture himself ever having one. There's...

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Too sweet for me

This was a solid read - it just wasn't a good fit for me. I always see Carolyn Brown's books on the bestseller lists, so it seemed like the right time to check one out. The writing itself is strong, the characters are interesting, and there are little bits of humor thrown into the story.... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Problematic past

I always enjoy Nadia Lee’s light and fun rom coms, but… this definitely wasn’t my favorite. There’s just something about the backstory that rubbed me the wrong way, and I really couldn’t get past it (more on that in a minute). It’s still a cute read with some fun enemies to lovers bickering, a sweet... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Complex and angsty

Such a compelling second chance romance! I'll be the first to admit that second chance romances are often difficult for me because there are always questions about the relationship that pull me out of the story, but this was written so well that it was engrossing, complex, and interesting throughout. The heroine is not my... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️ Falls flat

This one sits solidly between 2 and 3 stars for me. It definitely had potential and there was nothing explicitly "wrong" with it, but there just wasn't enough to compel me to keep reading. It's got some great food descriptions that will make you hungry, characters who are interesting but share no real chemistry, and... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️ Kinda confusing

A lackluster storyline paired with a writing style that features more "tell" than "show," this falls flat. This couple is already together (kinda? sort of?) when the book begins, so the reader misses out on them falling for each other, and in turn misses out on the chance to fall for the characters. It's all... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Steamy with banter

It’s not all sunshine and roses in this steamy modern romance. Set in present day - as in, when millions of people’s lives are on hold - this sexy love story mixes lightness and banter with real life issues. The first half is steamy, sexual tension-filled fun, with great dialogue and obvious chemistry. The mood... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Quick and steamy

Each book in this series has had a completely different vibe, and I kind of love that. You never quite know what you're going to get, which keeps things interesting. This one wasn't my favorite but it was an entertaining and quick read. I can definitely see growth in the authors' work even from the... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Sexy/sweet

I love Jasmin Miller's brand of sweet and sexy romances, so this novella is a nice little addition to her Kings of the Water series. It's a quick read, wasting no time getting right into the action as our couple starts a family in an unexpected way - meeting as strangers, sharing a steamy night,... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Hot mess of a hero

God. Where do I even start? I have such a complicated relationship with L.J. Shen's writing. She is undeniably talented, with a writing style that just immerses you into the story - sometimes when you don't want to be. That first introduction to Hunter? I can't even describe it. I was so ready to just... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Not for me

I feel like I need to preface this one by saying that I love Rachel Van Dyken's contemporary romances. She loves playing in those gray areas, with blurred lines and complicated relationships. And while she has written several mafia romances in the past, that's just not a part of her work that I've explored. The... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Steamy and sweet

I love the concept that even during a dark time in someone's life, they can find a bright spot of happiness and some hope for the future. That's exactly what this sweet and steamy book conveys; it's a take on a serious, real life subject that's executed with respect and understanding of the current situation... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Light and sexy

Light, sweet, and a little sexy, this road trip romance flies by. The first half is pure fun, with a playful enemies to lovers vibe that’s heightened by the fact that our couple is stuck in a car together. Bickering turns to bantering and then it’s on from there. While I wish there had been... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Quick, funny treat

What a short and playful little treat for fans of Sara Ney's Douchebag series! Anyone who has followed the series from the start is familiar with Rex, wrestling manager and douchebag in his own right. Throughout the series, we saw him change and evolve, becoming a better person and worthy of his own love story.... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Opposites attract goodness

It’s cynic versus romantic in this light-hearted opposites attract romance. Whenever I start reading a book by Jennifer Probst, I know I’m going to get solid writing, complex characters, chemistry, a semi-serious tone, and a relationship that’s a little messy. And this one is no different - I wholeheartedly enjoyed the tension between these two... Continue Reading →
