Review: Sustained by Emma Chase

Review: This book is what I would call very okay. Bordering on great. It was hilarious, but I didn’t love the characters. So I guess my “thing” with this series is going to be wanting to slap the guys upside the head, and loving them anyways. You just want to slap the guys in this series on the backs of their heads! @emmachse Click To Tweet In Overruled, Stanton was the definition of wanting to have your cake and eat it, too. I mean, the guys in the Tangled series were pretty stupid, too, as are most guys (and girls) […]

Review: The Coincidence of Coconut Cake by Amy E. Reichert

Review: This book was pretty so-so. I always enjoy a light chick lit, which this was. It’s been awhile since I’ve gone back to this genre, so that part of the reading experience was fun. And it was a fun read. It was easy and light, as well as funny at parts. The perfect beach read – which makes me mad that it was the only paperback I planned to read at the beach earlier this summer. I ended up taking out of my bag at my parents house right before we left and left it there. #wompwompwomp Anyway, the […]

Review: The Consequence of Revenge by Rachel Van Dyken

Review: True story: I read this while on a business trip in June, and the laughter-induced snorting it caused was so bad that my coworkers (and roommates for the trip) came into my bedroom to check on me when they thought I was choking to death. Remember in my review of The Consequence of Loving Colton, when I said they straddled the line between outrageous and outrageously annoying really closely? The Consequence of Revenge straddled it even more. Not because the writing was really different or anything. Max was just always the most over-the-top character, so it’s a given when he’s […]

Review: Made for Us by Samantha Chase

Review: This book was cute and fun, but overall very ‘meh.’ So, with Aiden? Talk about a chip on your shoulder. His constant angst was kind of annoying. It’s been established that I’ve over unnecessary angst that seems forced or shallow. While his big ole chip was necessary to the storyline, since it basically drove all the shitty stuff he did, I just had to roll my eyes at it. Mostly because of his “the head of the family needs to be alone” outlook – if he looked up to both his parents so much, how did that even make […]

Review: Playing for Her Heart by Megan Erickson

Review: Ackgh. Megan Erickson + nerd love = fan girl nerd love. Try saying that five times fast, because I’ve been trying for 10 minutes and haven’t been able to yet. Is it the wine? Well, that is a distinct possibility. Just so much of this book made me go haaaaay. First off, it is genuine nerd love. We’re not talking about a shy girl with glasses. We’re talking about cosplaying coders and writers. If you can get on that level, let’s hang out. I’ll bring my TARDIS onesie, you bring your Dalek (just kidding – don’t you dare bring that […]

Review: Recipe for Temptation by Gina Gordon

Review: I have some mixed feelings about this book, but I think they all pretty much cancel each other out so I’m settling in the middle. Also, some of it might be due to this being the first Madewood Brothers book I’ve read, since I was understood it could be read as a standalone. First, I looved the way the book started out. Just the opening scene set up Cole and Penn so well (in some ways, but we’ll get to that), and Cole had an awesome entrance. And the chemistry between them continued in my favorite kind of way. […]

Review: Flirting with Fire by Kate Meader

Flirting with Fire Review: Ugh, I hate how long it took to get this read and reviewed, especially when I loved it so much. I started it around release day and loved it from page 1. But then the same week it released, I got a job offer. You know how that ended up. 🙂 Anyway, since it was the book I was reading when I packed up the rest of my books, it got a little lost in the move. It was in the bag of odds and ends I kept out until the very end, thrown together while […]

Review: On My Knees by J. Kenner

Review: On My Knees by J. Kenner

On My Knees Review: Honestly, this book felt a little like filler to me. Like how the middle of every single season of Revenge is. Where the writer has something really huge coming up for us, but is saving it for the season finale (or in this case, the final book). To explain it in real terms, instead of my own language of relating things to TV shows, the book was kind of a plateau. It kind of mirrored Say My Name a lot – the same issues, but with different details. And it ends on a cliffhangy high note extremely similar […]

Review: The Consequence of Loving Colton by Rachel Van Dyken

The Consequence of Loving Colton Review: When I first found Rachel Van Dyken’s books, I was all about the suspense. I devoured the Eagle Elite series, despite having drastically different feelings during rereads. Cut to today, and instead she’s one of my favorite romantic comedy authors. Between Grandma + company in The Dare and Max especially in this, she writes the most amazing caricatures. Most of the characters in this book straddled the line between outrageously hilarious and outrageously annoying pretty closely, but it worked. Like 85% of the time, they were hilarious instead of annoying. There were times where someone was […]

Review: Zack by Sawyer Bennett

  Zack Review: I have to tell you, I was afraid to read this book. With both Alex and Garrett, I dove into the book the same day I was approved for them on NetGalley. And I either finished that same day, or the very next. I procrastinated reading Zack for weeks. As much as I thought @BennettBooks’ Garrett devastated me, Zack’s storyline was a completely new level of unraveling.. Click To Tweet As much as the main story in Garrett devastated me, Zack’s storyline unraveled me. Frankly, I wasn’t sure I could handle this book. I knew, because 99% […]
