Review: Trade Me by Courtney Milan

Review: Trade Me by Courtney Milan

I wanted to love Trade Me so much but it just did not work for me. 😖 The writing itself is fine, but I found the story boring and struggled to pay attention throughout the book. Long story short: Blake is rich (son of a tech mogul), Tina is poor, they know each other from […]

Review: The Chateau by Tiffany Reisz

Review: The Chateau by Tiffany Reisz

First, I need to mention that this book is the one that finally ended my romance slump. My last romance review was back at the end of January—about 4.5 months ago! I’ve DNFed so many books these past few months, I can’t even tell you how many. I should also start by saying that although […]

Review: Seek by Mia Sheridan

Review: Seek by Mia Sheridan

When I first read the summary for Mia Sheridan’s latest novel, Seek, I was intrigued. A socialite hires a mercenary to take her to Colombia in search of her missing fiancé. I’m a huge fan of Mia Sheridan, and Seek is something that feels new and fresh for her: suspenseful, dark, gritty, but still highly […]

Review: The Ones Who Got Away by Roni Loren

Review: The Ones Who Got Away by Roni Loren

The Ones Who Got Away by Roni Loren is the first romance novel I’ve ever read that centers around a school shooting. That might sound like an odd combination, but it makes sense when you think about it. The media named them The Ones Who Got Away: survivors of the Long Acre High School shooting, […]

Review: Merry Christmas, Baby by Jill Shalvis

Review: Merry Christmas, Baby by Jill Shalvis

I finished Jill Shalvis’s Lucky Harbor series a while back, but somehow never got around to reading this novella (book #12.5). Merry Christmas, Baby is a follow-up to Chloe and Sawyer’s story from Head Over Heels (book #3). This is a short but sweet story that’s infused with a strong sense of realism past the […]

Review: The Trouble with Mistletoe by Jill Shalvis

Review: The Trouble with Mistletoe by Jill Shalvis

The Trouble with Mistletoe by Jill Shalvis is a perfect holiday read. It’s a combination of sassy humor, sexy times, and heartfelt moments. Willa Davis is shocked when someone from her past walks into her pet store, South Bark Mutt Shop. Keane Winters stood her up years ago, back in high school. That’s bad enough, […]

Review: Stud Finder by Lauren Blakely

Review: Stud Finder by Lauren Blakely

I’m a big fan of Lauren Blakely’s novels because they’re packed with humor, banter, sexiness, and feels. Whenever I read one of her romantic comedies, I know I can expect that great combination. Sadly, Stud Finder missed the mark for me, in many ways. Dylan is a sexy, tech geek millionaire who’s ready to get […]
