Review: The Hooker and the Hermit by L.H. Cosway and Penny Reid

My Review: If someone told me I would meet a character, even one that Penny Reid helped create, that I had a bigger girl crush on than I do for various members of “that infamous knitting group” from the Knitting in the City series, I would have called you cray cray. Even with all the other characters my favorite authors write, I love them in a different, less girl crushy way than I do with the knitting ladies. But that was before Annie Catrel. (B.A.C., for future reference. Not to be confused with blood-alcohol concentration.) I loved her so hard, and […]

Review: Private Internship by Kitsy Clare

Review: Private Internship by Kitsy Clare

My Review: The main reason I wanted to read this book was because I didn’t really like the first book in the series, Model Position. I don’t like when I don’t like books and their characters. Books are glorious, and I just want to love them all! I’ve gotten pretty good at choosing what books to read, so normally I do end up liking the book. But I didn’t really like Model Position and wanted Kitsy Clare and her characters to redeem themselves. Good news! They kind of did. But only kind of. Gah! Cognitive dissonance! It’s the worst! My […]

Review: Floored by Melanie Harlow

My Review: Gah! This might be my favorite book in the Frenched series! I can’t decide. It’s sooooo close between this and Forked. But then, in my world, in case of a tie, the book with the dance tie-in always wins. 😛 I’m so jealous of Erin for owning a dance studio. Let’s just get that out there. Floored beats Forked because of ballet. So let’s talk about the opening scene. Erin is on her game when it comes to fantasies. Seriously, good choices, girl. Good choices. Except for the whole leaving that stuff out when the cops show up. And […]

Review: Too Hot to Handle by Katie Rose

Review: Too Hot to Handle by Katie Rose

My Review: This was definitely hot. The title doesn’t lie. Normally this kind of book title wouldn’t impress me, make me cautiously skeptical. So honestly, even though the book description and cover sounded great, I wasn’t expecting a whole lot going in. To say I was pleasantly surprise would be an understatement. I basically devoured this book. As in, silence my phone (I work in PR & marketing. It takes a lot for me to silence my phone.), completely ignore my boyfriend, roommate, and family, until this book is done, devoured. The chemistry between Jake and Nikki was insane, and Katie Rose […]

Review: Garrett by Sawyer Bennett

My Review: I read this book months ago and it’s SUCKED not being able to talk about it, but I wanted to wait to post my review until we were closer to it being published. Now, it’s coming out this month and I’m so excited for you all! WOW. Was not expecting such an intense conflict! Not that Alex was particularly light, what with the stuff about addiction, abuse, and neglect. But Garrett was so easygoing and fun in that book, that you I was expecting this book to not be so heavy. Welp, I assumed, and then I made an […]

Review: Club Luxe 1: The Private Room by Olivia Noble

My Review: I don’t know why I always feel the need to warn you when I write a short review about a short book. But I do, so I will: this review is short since the book is short. I read this so long ago, and even when I was reading it didn’t leave much of an impact. So waiting so long to write the review was probably stupid on my part. Normally, I would reread the book, but what I do remember is being pretty unimpressed, so I don’t really want to. First off, an erotica novella doesn’t leave […]

Review: Beautiful Beloved by Christina Lauren

My Review: Squeeeee! Let me tell you a story: on Friday, I worked all day. Literally all day. From about 7:45 am to about 7 pm, working straight through my lunch break. And then there was a car accident on the way home from work and it took over an hour. I was either at work or in the car to/from work for over twelve hours. I was miserable. I couldn’t wait to just crawl into bed. I’m climbing up the stairs to my apartment and see a package. I get slightly excited because I figure it’s the paper-sized post-its […]

Review: Wallbanger by Alice Clayton [Audiobook]

Review: Wallbanger by Alice Clayton [Audiobook]

My Review: Squee! My first audiobook review! I kind of don’t like that it’s for Wallbanger, because the overall rating would absolutely be 5 stars if I wasn’t incorporating the audiobook into the rating (more on that later). Just for fun, I thought I’d include my original Goodreads review from way back in 2012: “I could not stop grinning and laughing out loud while reading this book. Caroline is a hilarious protagonist whose language and sense of humor reminded me of so many millennials in their 20s. The witty banter/flirting-but-not-flirting between Caroline and Simon was adorable and actual LOL-inducing. Great, […]

Review: Love Bites by Rachel K. Burke

Review: Love Bites by Rachel K. Burke

My Review: So up front, I will say that this book wasn’t my kind of thing. I always have trouble really getting into the book’s world when it’s told by alternating between the past and present. But that’s my only major issue with the book, and it’s totally a personal preference. The only reason this book is 3 stars instead of 4 is because this is a personal blog, and I think personal preferences should play into the ratings. Objectively? This book was pretty great. I have my coworker reading it now and she really likes it. It’s just…my favorite […]

Review: For the Record by K.A. Linde

Review: For the Record by K.A. Linde

My Review: Advanced warning: I read On the Record and For the Record back-to-back, and I’m now having trouble remembering what feelings I had during which book. So while plot-wise, this review sticks to For the Record, feels-wise, it’s kind of a pseudo-hybrid review. I’m assuming that’s a new term in the book blogging world. 😛 I feel like the theme of this book was tying up loose ends. Things kind of exploded at the end of the second book, to the point where I’m surprised my dropped jaw wasn’t blocking the view of my e-reader. It was a great […]
