Review: One Week to Score by Kate Meader

Review: I’m not usually a fan of the Texas stereotypes, but Flynn? Him I will take. Please and thank you, Kate Meader. 🙋🏻 This book was amazing for me – formulaically and in every other way. Second chance romances – even if it was just attraction. Friends with benefits. Beaches and warm weathers and cute (sounding) vacation outfits. I’ll take that too. First of all, this goddamn family and their nuptial luck. It’s hilarious. I was starting to get annoyed at how unrealistic and dramatic it was, but then the characters joke about it themselves and get all deprecating. And another thing […]

Review: The Mother Road by Meghan Quinn

Review: I don’t know why, but for some reason I thought this would be a cute, kinda innocent but still great read. I really don’t know why, considering I’ve read and loved a Meghan Quinn book before. Something about the cover, I guess? (Guuuuys, it’s so prettyyyy) That past experience is why I was willing to give an innocent-looking new adult book a chance in the first place. But I started reading to find the same naughty, raunchy, fucking hilaaarious humor as in The Virgin Romance Novelist. Nope, not innocent humor at all. Not innocent romance at all. Yassss. I […]

Review: Untamed by S.C. Stephens

Review: So I read this book right after it came out, but my feelings about it were so confused that I couldn’t have attempted to write a review. I just reread it and am feeling a little more…clarity? But also raaaage. But also good feelings, if only a few. So, here goes. Behind the Music! Haha. It’s Behind the Music! Every. Episode. Ever. With a focus on…you know it’s coming…the scary second half. I guess none of the gang had ever seen it, or they’d have been a leeetle better prepared haha. Especially knowing Griffin… It makes me think of […]

Review: Grin and Beard It by Penny Reid

Review: I started this book a little nervously, since while I like the Winston brothers series, they don’t hold a candle to the Knitting in the City series. It just goes back to needing to relate to books and not being too interested in small-town, low-tech mountain life. But Sienna made up for everything I “less than love” about the rest of the series. Girl is LIT. The chapters from her point of view – that shit I could read forever. It’s not just that she’s hilarious (which she is), it’s also my exact brand of humor. Five-year-old kid potty […]

Review: Everywhere and Every Way by Jennifer Probst

Review: Eek, this book, these characters, were highly cute. We know I love workplace romances, and I don’t hate a good enemies to lovers story. Two tightly wound type A people working together can be hilarious (when it’s not actually happening to you). Between Morgan and her Olivia Pope wardrobe (HOW DO THESE WOMEN NEVER SPILL?) and Caleb’s micromanaging his brothers, they both really needed to get laid. Good thing they did. But they still fought a lot, which is always good. Hot romances always have non-serious fighting / bickering – Tangled, Beautiful Bastard, etc. The one thing I wasn’t totally […]

Review: Sour Grapes by Rachel Goodman

Review: I liked Ryan. I liked the little small town (I always do!). I liked the wine stuff. I liked the group of friends. I liked a lot of the plot. But I did not like Margaret. Not one bit. It always sucks when you don’t like the character who’s telling the story. You’re seeing things through their eyes, so it’s hard to keep the rest of the book detached from them. And boy, did I hate seeing things through Margaret’s eyes. For most of the book, she hated everything. And if she didn’t have something readily available to hate, she actively […]

Review: Anatomy of a Player by Cindi Madsen

Review: How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days! It was How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days! In a good way – the best way. Except there was no drunken “You’re So Vain.” A disappointment, but I can overlook it because reading drunk karaoke isn’t as fun as listening to and watching it anyway, not by a long shot. Plus, Matthew McConaughey never held much appeal for me, and Hudson does. The book was so cute, and I absolutely loved the “reporter girl” banter between Hudson and Whitney. And man, Whitney kind of sucked as a reporter. It […]

Review + Excerpt: The Player and the Pixie by L.H. Cosway and Penny Reid

Hey everyone! Today I’m doing something I haven’t done in a long time: a blog tour. And since I’ve read the book by now as well, scroll down for that review. Excerpt: I DIDN’T KNOW what I was doing. Requests, things I wanted, words I would never speak or allow myself to think were now uncontainable. It’s the sex, I reiterated. Again. I’d used this explanation, now on repeat, as a simple justification for the complex cacophony of my mind. “Be with you?” Her long, dark lashes fluttered, beating like distressed butterfly wings against warming pink cheeks. I licked my […]

Review: Tell Me You Crave Me by Joya Ryan

Review: I liked this plot and these characters and this book soooo much. I’m giving it 3 stars for a weird reason: I didn’t get to enjoy it enough. Shit was pretty rushed. If I normally did half-stars, it’d be 3.5 though. Joya created such a great universe here, but the book felt so fast-paced a lot of the time. I would have loved to have been able to really sit back and get sucked into it. But as easy as it would have been to get absorbed into the book, it felt rushed enough that instead, I was strugglin’ […]

Review: Her Forever Hero by Melody Anne

Review: This book started off ‘meh’ for me but ended with a bang. I think it was just all the jumping around at the beginning to get us caught up to speed on Cam and Grace’s relationship since she moved back to town. (PS – it’s def more of a second-chance romance than it seems from the blurb, which I loved. You know I’m a sucker for those.) Once Cam and Grace started spending more time together and the stakes everywhere got a little higher, I got really sucked in. Stayed up til 5 am last night finishing it, actually. […]
