JUST RELEASED: The Rich Boy by Kylie Scott

I'm looking forward to reading the newest from Kylie Scott and it's out now! The Rich Boy sounds like it's one angsty, emotional read featuring a rich, troubled guy. Get all the details below. “Rich Boy takes you on a literal ride! Funny. Angsty. It's a definite recommendation from me!–Tijan, New York Times bestselling author... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️⭐️ A little dry

This is one of those books that grows on you as the story goes on. The romance doesn't really kick in until about a quarter of the way in, and a lot of it reads more like women's fiction, with a heavy, emotional, and sometimes dry feel. Bybee tackled some real life issues that are... Continue Reading →

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 →

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Disappointing

Phew... where do I even start with this? I didn't like it. I didn't like it at all. HOWEVER, I can appreciate the quality of the writing, the depth of emotion, and the little breadcrumbs the author left along the way. For me, the start is tedious, confusing, and completely void of romance. These two... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Just okay

I have to hand it to Taylor Holloway, she reimagined the Little Mermaid into a storyline that works with a modern Hollywood setting. It’s original but still has plenty of references to the beloved story. This series as a whole hasn’t been my favorite, but this is one of the stronger entries. It’s still a... Continue Reading →

⭐️⭐️ 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 →

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Sexy and fun

Sexy, sexy fun! I can always count on Lauren Blakely for incredible chemistry, banter, and characters who are easy to like, and this has that in spades. Featuring two former friends who faltered when they tried to cross the line, it takes place over a 24-hour period and is a lot of fun. Half enemies... 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 →

Best of February

2020 has been a stellar year for romance, and we've barely scratched the surface. I read so many great books in January that I thought there was no way February could compare... but that was definitely not the case. There were fantastic new releases from some of my very favorite authors (Rachel Van Dyken, Adriana... 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 →

15 Awesome Opposites Attract Romances

I love the tension that inevitably develops when two total opposites meet and start to fall for each other. Whether it's good girl/bad boy, jock/nerd, nasty/nice, the contrasts often make for truly dynamic reads. The following 15 romances all feature couples who have major differences, but somehow find enough commonalities along the way to fall... 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 →
