Review: Beach Read by Emily Henry

Review: Beach Read by Emily Henry

I’m so bummed that Beach Read by Emily Henry didn’t work for me. I’ve seen mostly rave reviews for this book on Instagram and elsewhere, but the story came out lacking for me. First, the characters of January and Gus read to me like new adult characters, not like established adults who are both accomplished […]

Review: Can You Keep a Secret? by Sophie Kinsella

Review: Can You Keep a Secret? by Sophie Kinsella

Why haven’t I read more Sophie Kinsella already?! I read I’ve Got Your Number several years ago and enjoyed it, but haven’t kept up with her other titles. I’m in a total beach reads/women’s fiction/chick lit mood lately, and Can You Keep a Secret? is everything that I need right now. It’s a perfect mix […]

Review: Closer by Alexa Riley

Review: Closer by Alexa Riley

Closer by Alexa Riley is the first audiobook released through their podcast with author Tessa Bailey, Read Me Romance. I was intrigued about the podcast format: a new romance audiobook every week, released in five parts throughout the week. As an Alexa Riley story, I think it’s pretty tame, both with regard to the writing […]

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: 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: 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, s*xiness, 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 s*xy, tech geek millionaire who’s ready to get […]

Review: More Than Want You by Shayla Black

Review: More Than Want You by Shayla Black

More Than Want You is book #1 in Shayla Black’s new More Than Words series. A departure from her erotic romance novels, this series is more in the contemporary vein with a slightly new adult feel. For me, More Than Want You had a slow start and I had some issues with it. Ultimately, I […]

Review: C791 by Eve Langlais

Review: C791 by Eve Langlais

Since I liked Accidental Abduction by Eve Langlais so much, I figured I’d give her cyborg series a try. C791 is book #1 in the Cyborgs: More Than Machines series. This story started out promising, but quickly lost my attention. Nevertheless, an unexpected plot twist kept me interested enough to finish and made me curious […]

Review: Hell Breaks Loose by Sophie Jordan

Review: Hell Breaks Loose by Sophie Jordan

Hell Breaks Loose is book #2 in Sophie Jordan’s Devil’s Rock series. I was super excited to read this because I loved book #1, All Chained Up, so much. However, I didn’t enjoy Hell Breaks Loose nearly as much and actually struggled to finish it. The story centers around Grace and Reid. Grace is the […]
