Review: For Better or Worse by Lauren Layne

Review: Ha! Was anyone else getting major Wallbanger memories with the circumstances of how Josh and Heather knew each other? But just like, tamer and with people who were clearly more normal than the Wallbanger characters. Still lurved it. 🙂 I have major soft spots for neighbor romances. I’ve had so many bad neighbors, it’s nice to have an alternate universe to fantasize about. Remind me to tell you about the neighbor who had 6 cats whose litter boxes she didn’t keep clean enough. This book had me less “OMG cuteness” than To Have and To Hold did, but it […]

Review: Coming Clean by C.L. Parker

Review: This is going to be a complicated one. I thought this book was very well done, but damn was it a downer for me. Let’s get into it. First, you guys know that if a book is done well as the end of a series, I’m not going to like it. It’s documented in lots of other book #3 reviews around the blog. I’m a brat and I don’t like endings. If an author wraps up a series well, I’m not going to take it well. It’s basically a fact at this point. Secondly, it pulled a fucking Parks and […]

Review: Beautiful by Christina Lauren

Review: Gahhhh. Just. Gahhh. I really, really, really with I had a more articulate initial reaction to hands-down my favorite romance series of all-time, but let’s be real. I’m me. Articulate reactions are not my thing. And one of my favorite things about this series – my favorite series of all time – is, as I’ve said before, that Christina & Lauren don’t just make you fall in love with each of their couples. They let you stay in love with them too. How many series do you read where a couple gets their HEA, and then even in their […]

Review: To Have and To Hold by Lauren Layne

Review: First of all, YORKVILLE! OMFG YORKVILLE! I live there. This book takes place there. And can we talk about how much I love that it takes place there? This is a tiny, quiet, beautiful neighborhood on the Upper East side that’s like a bubble from the rest of the upper class Upper East Side. It’s gorgeous. Everyone’s youngish, professionalish, and friendly. Have I mentioned it’s gorgeous? And best of all, it’s kind of a secret. Guys, I love my neighborhood sooooooo much. And no one ever talks about it or has even heard of it – even people that […]

Review: Roman Crazy by Alice Clayton and Nina Bocci

Review: Hot damn, this book checked all my boxes! Authors I love? ✔️ Beautiful scenery? ✔️ The sense of humor I’d find at brunch with my own girlfriends? ✔️ Second chance romance? ✔️ A strong, badass female? ✔️ Dude who’s as hot in looks as he is in personality? ✔️ So let’s get started on the deets! I added this book to my TBR the second I heard of it and just knewww it would be amazing. Between the authors and the name, it was enough to make up my mind. 🙂 It was pretty Eat, Pray, Love-ish in concept (I think, it’s been awhile since […]

Review: The Goal by Elle Kennedy

Review: What a way to end this series! It was definitely my favorite book out of them all. First of all, I don’t know how often I read books in a series where it takes place alongside another one of the books, chronologically. Having this one occur at the same time as The Score was really cool, having those little “I know something you don’t know” moments where you knew more than either of the narrators. This book was also so emotional, even more than the tough stuff in The Score. I could relate to Sabrina’s work ethic and determination, and the […]

Review: Well Hung by Lauren Blakely

My Review: First of all, since I haven’t posted my review of Mister O, I haven’t talked about this series since it became a…series lol. Can we PUHLEAAAASE talk about these book titles? So. fucking. amazing. Back when there was just Big Rock, I chuckled. I called it Big Cock in my head (because remember that book cover? You could just tell…) because I have the sense of humor of a 12 year old boy. But I never imagined I’d get even more dirty, funny, punny book titles to play with! Wheeee! Moving on. Oh, Hammer, you poor sucker. You […]

Review: Just What I Needed by Lorelei James

Review: This was a fun, cute read. I read most of it during a day on the beach, and it all felt very appropriate. 🙂 View this post on Instagram A post shared by Book Bumblings (@bookbumblings) First of all, I liked the formula. It was pretty much the same formula as the first book in the series, What You Need, but a completely different book. So authors who say you can’t follow a trope and make it original, take note. Lorelei James had her two heroes go through the same thing in completely different lenses and with different people, […]

Review: Fool Me Once by Katee Robert

Review: “Aubry Kaiser doesn’t like people—actually, that’s not right. She loathes people. With her crippling anxiety…” Hi, this book is basically about me. I love Aubrey so, so much because she did things I can’t even imagine! I will never go to Comic Con because omg the crowds, so I totally got how she felt about the gaming conference. And the idea of a human shield? Totally accurate. Love having someone to stand behind. It helps that I’m short, so it doesn’t take much to block my line of sight. 😛 Now on to Quinn. Wow, I’ve inadvertently been on […]

But then I got sick on vacation and couldn’t read, and then I was in the hospital and wanted this book soooo damn bad but of course the tote bag it was sitting in wasn’t the one I had with me when I ended up there unexpectedly. #booknerdproblems But I finally got out and got it read when spending time […]
