Romance Audiobooks with Duet Narration

My favorite kind of audiobooks - those performed in duet, so that you can distinguish between the characters! Audiobooks have come a long way in the last several years, shifting from books that are simply read aloud to true audio performances. I remember trying to get into audiobooks a few years ago, and I just... Continue Reading →

Best of August 2022

You'll be seeing some of these books on my Best of 2022 list for sure - August brought some excellent reads. Both Love on the Brain and Thank You For Listening made my Best of 2022 (So Far) list back in June after I posted my sneak peek reviews, and they remain some of my... Continue Reading →

15 Low Angst Romantic Comedy Novels

Rom coms: readers love them so much that the majority of romance books get (mis)labeled that way! It can often be difficult to tell if the book you're reading is going to be a genuinely low angst, feel good (hopefully funny!) read, which sometimes makes reading rom coms frustrating. Sometimes I just want a book... Continue Reading →

15 Sweet & Spicy Small Town Romance Books

Something about small town romance novels just hits a little different - in a good way. While the stories still feel contemporary and modern, there's often a laidback, easygoing feel or a cast of characters that make the setting feel more like a community. Whether the book is part of a series of interconnected standalones... Continue Reading →

Best of July 2022

July may have been a rocky reading month for me, but I ended up with some GREAT reads. I think it says a lot that my Best of July list only includes one July release, lol, though three of these came out in June. I had to look a little harder than usual for books... Continue Reading →

15 Sexy Fake Relationship Romance Books

I never get tired of fake relationship romance novels, don't ask me why! There's something about this trope that works for me, and it's just so versatile. The forced proximity, the crossing of boundaries, the faked intimacy - that's all part of the fun. Faking a relationship is often the catalyst that sparks crazy chemistry,... Continue Reading →

Best of June 2022

An embarrassment of reading riches made it VERY difficult to put this list together, lol! I couldn't limit myself to six books this month, so I've got six top picks and a few honorable mentions. My top picks were all really great reads, and the honorable mentions would've easily made the list in a less... Continue Reading →

15 Sexy Single Dad Romance Books

There's just something about a good father that is incredibly sexy, so it's no wonder why the single dad trope is so popular! These romances often feature found families, heart-melting moments, and plenty of swoons. I love it when a single dad finds his perfect complement, and the family scenes can be downright adorable. Though... Continue Reading →

15 (More) Great Grumpy / Sunshine Romance Books

I discovered just how popular the grumpy/sunshine romance trope is when I posted my original recommendation list (found here) - and there's a good reason for that! The opposites attract dynamic provides plenty of opportunities for sexual tension-filled friction, and the build in intimacy just feels even more satisfying once a lovable grump has exposed... Continue Reading →

What’s on My TBR? 25 ARCs on My Kindle

The only problem with having an embarrassment of ARC riches? Deciding what to read first! I’ve got lots of very exciting ARCs on my Kindle at the moment, with too many books and too little time. I’ve read a few of these, can’t wait to dig into others, and am looking forward to checking out plenty... Continue Reading →

Best of May 2022

There was an embarrassment of reading riches in May, so my biggest problem was choosing which books would make this list! This month, I really focused on setting aside books that weren't working for me and giving my full attention to those that did - whether they were new releases or retro reads. And that... Continue Reading →

MAY 2022 WRAP-UP

There might be a few days left in the month, but I'm calling it a wrap - there are already plenty of great candidates for my Best of the Month list (coming soon)! Plus, you know, it's a holiday weekend and there aren't any new releases til Tuesday. May started off a little slow, but... Continue Reading →

MARK YOUR CALENDAR: June Releases

There are SO MANY new romance novels coming your way in the month of June!!! It can be incredibly difficult to keep track of all of the new releases each month, so I’ve put together a calendar to help you manage your TBR. The following books are the ones that are on my radar –... Continue Reading →

15 Sexy Single Mom Romance Novels

Single dad romance books get most of the love, but is there anything more heart-melting and adorable than a commitment-phobic hero becoming part of a family? Whether it’s a charming playboy falling for a woman AND her kids, a grumpy hero becoming fiercely protective of the family he’d love to call his own, or an... Continue Reading →

Best of April 2022

There were some AWESOME new romances released in April! While the month was super uneven overall, the books that worked for me really worked, and I'm betting they'll leave a lasting impression. And my favorites were all SO different that it'll probably take a few months before I know which was my absolute top pick.... Continue Reading →

APRIL 2022 WRAP-UP

April was kind of a lame release month, but the good books were REALLY good. I'm betting more than one of these will be on my Best of 2022 list at the end of the year. The month started off strong for me, with several 5-star reads in a row, then my enjoyment of the... Continue Reading →

MARK YOUR CALENDAR: May Releases

There are SO MANY new romance novels coming your way in the month of May!!! It can be incredibly difficult to keep track of all of the new releases each month, so I’ve put together a calendar to help you manage your TBR. The following books are the ones that are on my radar –... Continue Reading →

Best of March 2022

Redemption seemed to be the theme of the month, and I'm not complaining! This is one of those months where I would've anticipated a completely different group of books making my Best of the Month list, so the surprise discoveries were that much sweeter. I've got two new-to-me authors, two newer-to-me authors, and two rising... Continue Reading →

MARCH 2022 WRAP-UP

What a month! There were a TON of new releases in March, and for a few weeks it felt like more quantity than quality. After a strong start to the month, I felt myself getting pulled into a slump mid-month because I was reading so many new books, but not finding a lot of 5-star... Continue Reading →

MARK YOUR CALENDAR: April Releases

Compared to the craziness of March, April is looking like a positively quiet release month, but that can change in an instant, lol! That also has nothing to do with the quality of the books releasing in April, many of which are looking pretty great. It can be incredibly difficult to keep track of all... Continue Reading →

WEEKLY WRAP-UP: March 25th

It was an exploratory reading week for me, and with that came mixed results! None of my one-click authors released new books this week, so I checked out the work of several new-to-me or newer-to-me authors. My favorite was the easy, sexy Say Yes to the Boss, which made me think it might be time... Continue Reading →

WEEKLY WRAP-UP: March 18th

It was a better reading week for me! Two bingeable books made my week, Shenanigans and Dr. Potter. The audio version of Shenanigans made the Vegas wedding-turned-marriage of convenience romance shine, and I loved the light, easy feel. The unpredictability of Dr. Potter had me glued to my seat, and it had me tearing through... Continue Reading →

15 Bossy Billionaire Romance Books

Rich jerks are a huge trope in romance novels - heroes who might be a little moody, broody, and grumpier than the average guy. When I told my husband that billionaire romances are a common trope, he blinked and looked at me like he must've heard me wrong (you mean millionaires, right? Millions aren't enough?),... Continue Reading →

WEEKLY WRAP-UP: March 4th

I really struggled to find reading time this week - I was way too busy doomscrolling - but there were tons of great releases. One of my favorite books of the year so far, Hook, Line, and Sinker, came out this week. I posted my sneak peek review awhile back, and I've still got such... Continue Reading →

Teaser Thursday

We've got another big release week on the way, and I am... definitely behind on my reading, lol. March is a very busy month for new books, but there's also a lot going on in the world right now, so that means I'm not getting much reading done, personally. If you're looking to get lost... Continue Reading →

Best of February 2022

I'd call February a disappointing release month overall, but there were still some great new books! This month, my favorites were immediately obvious to me, so I've separated these into two groups - Top Picks and Honorable Mentions. My two favorite new releases were EASILY Lease on Love and A Ticking Time Boss. Lease on... Continue Reading →

FEBRUARY WRAP-UP

I can't believe February is almost over, it certainly got away from me a little bit, lol! I started out with a strong reading month, but haven't been able to focus for days given all of the doomscrolling I've been doing. Regardless, it was a fun month of reading experimentation for me. Most of my... Continue Reading →

February wraps up with one more solid release week. It's been a quieter month for new books overall, and I've been having fun checking out new-to-me authors along the way. The next week brings books from authors I've read in the past, and certainly a few that I'll be sampling. Take a peek at some... Continue Reading →

15 Sexy Sports Romance Novels

I don’t know about you, but I love a good sports romance. From football to hockey, baseball and more, sports romances often play up the tropes for light and sexy reads. Fake relationships, flings, second chances, friends to lovers - they're all represented here. Sports romances are often interconnected standalones that are part of a... Continue Reading →

WEEKLY WRAP-UP: February 11th

It ended up being a solid reading week for me! While the new releases were a little sparse this week, I read a few that hit the right notes. I seriously enjoyed the light and sexy office romance, A Ticking Time Boss, which has reminded me why I like Olivia Hayle's writing. I also revisited... Continue Reading →

THROWBACK THURSDAY: Sports Romances

I focus on new releases in romance the rest of the week, so Throwback Thursdays revisit book recommendations from years past. This week’s topic is sports romance! I read a ton of sports romance, so I post a fresh list of recommendations right around this time every year. The new list is on the way... Continue Reading →

JANUARY WRAP-UP

January was a crazy busy release month, and I ended up reading like half of the new releases that I wanted to - but the books were great! My ratio of 5-star romances to less successful reads was higher than ever, and that's because there were so many exciting new releases to choose from. And... Continue Reading →

Nearly every one of my favorite authors released a new book in January, so there were tons to choose from - and I ended up reading many excellent books. There... Continue Reading →

WEEKLY WRAP-UP: January 28th

It was a 5-star kind of week! Some weeks I wonder if I'm being too critical, and some weeks it's the opposite. Almost everything I read this week was 5-star worthy, and that includes a couple of upcoming releases that aren't in this group. It was a great week! My two favorites feature men with... Continue Reading →

WEEKLY WRAP-UP: January 21st

It was a pretty good week! There were no losers in this mix, just two books that rose to the top of the pack. My favorite was easily the forbidden ex's brother romance, The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea. It was another excellent read from O'Roark, who is quickly becoming a one-click author for... Continue Reading →

WEEKLY WRAP-UP: January 14th

It was quality over quantity this week - I didn't get in as much reading time as I'd hoped, but the books were very good. I loved the sweet and laidback office romance from Rachel Lynn Solomon, Weather Girl. The hero was the swooniest gentleman, and the book was such a feel good read. My... Continue Reading →

WEEKLY WRAP-UP: January 7th

I had a somewhat disappointing reading week, but looking back, it wasn't as bad as I thought. I listened to the hot and steamy The Lawyer on audio, and it was a great introduction to Marni Mann's work - I'll definitely be reading more. I also enjoyed the sexy and tense The Worst Guy, a...
