Review: Tell Me You Love Me by Julie Prestsater

    Review: Recommended for: Any woman who’s read and loved Bridget Jones’ Diary and other books that are equally sexy and funny, any woman who’s been with a man who ever made her feel less than gorgeous and would imagine how good it would feel to tell him off. So regular readers know how I feel about romance books without sex. If there’s no sex (or it doesn’t happen til the end or whatever), and you still find yourself panting and turned on and basically making a horny fool out of yourself, you, my friend, have found yourself an excellent romance author. […]

Review: Still Yours by Amy Patrick

Review: Read my review for book 1, Channel 20Something, here. Recommended for: Anyone who’s dreamed of Wesley telling them, “as you wish.” Also, second-chance romance fans. First of all, let’s talk about this social network/dating site. StillYours.com. So much cuter, so much better, than whatever Tinder or Dice (although this was a hilarious New Girl episode) means. I’m a techy gal at heart, owning no less than 4 unused domain names right now just because I liked the names. I’m also a marketing gal, and I can just picture the TV ads for StillYours.com. It would have been an amazing marketing stunt to actually […]

Review: Perfectly Broken by Prescott Lane

Review: Perfectly Broken by Prescott Lane

Review: Recommended for: pie aficionados, Creole crazies, and anyone who likes stories of broken people putting themselves back together again. Read an excerpt here. “Pick up the pieces and put me back together again.” So that’s from a Canadian musical TV show I used to watch when it came on after Degrassi (back when it was good and had Drake on it), but this book kept making me think of it. It really says something that this book could be so deep and so emotional, yet also so funny. If you can’t tell, I decided to focus on the funny […]

#ThowbackThursday Review: Reasonable Doubt

Happy #TBT! So I’ve been trying to decide what to write about now that I’m done my Penny Reid series. I was planning out my Halloween costume when it came to me. So if you take a look at my bedroom, my DVD collection, my personal Facebook page, and especially the watch history for my YouTube account, you know I love dancing. So much. I was a dancer for 18 years. And I didn’t stop by choice. My ankles crapped out on me. Damn you, ankles! So now that I can’t dance, I like watching/reading about other people dancing. So I’m […]

Review: Unwritten by M.C. Decker

  Review: Recommended for: Throwback Thursday enthusiasts, boy band bippies, and second-chance romance fans. So I don’t know why, but this book’s description really got me interested, then the cover and description reread had me iffy. I’m so glad my first impression was correct! So many parts of this book were like one long #TBT Instagram post, and I loved it. The “bi-atches,” the fashion, even the current events. Sometimes it was a little much, like it was inserted in there just to remind us that the setting was the year 2000, but it was still really fun. But I […]

Review: Wildcard Volume 2 by Missy Johnson

My Review: Recommended for: Tennis fans, those who like to see a cocky man put in his place…or in your place  Review: Another short and sweet review, in keeping with the last one. My main takeaway from this volume? There’s nothing like a lovesick douchebag (does anyone else thing The Lovesick Douchebags would be a great band name? I’m sure they would rock ‘We Are the Dateless Losers.’) I felt for Ryder so much at the end of Wildcard Volume 1. He could have gone off and banged every single girl in the United States and to any haters, I’d have yelled […]

Review: Melt for Him by Lauren Blakely

Review: Melt for Him by Lauren Blakely

Review: Recommended for: Literally anyone who has ever stared at a firefighters of the year calendar. I’m about to get really corny for a second, but I feel like real firefighters need to be on alert with these Fighting Fire books (or really, any Lauren Blakely book). Because they’re so. fucking. hot. I mean, read this excerpt. Seriously, my gurlfrand Lauren can write the dirty talk like no other. I don’t even know if it’s dirty talk, because it’s not always dirty. but it’s always hot. Damn. Like I said in the intro, Lauren can write dirty. It what makes it […]

Review: Ignited by J. Kenner

  Review: Recommended for: White Collar and Catch Me If You Can fans, BDSMers, dirty talkers One thing that I’ve loved about all of the Most Wanted books is the grey area the three knights live in. They live on that line that divides good and bad. For example, take what we learned in the second book about what was going on at Destiny. Sure, they do things that are much less than legal, but then the good things they do are far more good than the bad things are bad. Cole August thinks he’s closer to the edge of […]

#ThrowbackThursday Review: Love Hacked by Penny Reid

Welcome to #TBT week 3! This will also be the last Penny Reid week, sadly, because I already review Neanderthal Marries Human so I’m kind of out of books of hers to throw back to. Soooo, who wants to suggest what I should throw back to next? Send me a tweet at @bookbumblings! And now, I present to you, Love Hacked. Love, and hacking. What a great combination for a geek like me! My Original Goodreads Review: I equally want to be best friends with Penny and all of the characters she writes. I’m also seeing a weird trend where […]
