Review: Imperfections by Shaniel Watson

Review: This is the kind of book I hate myself for finishing. I did not like it. There was not one single character I liked. But I still finished it, and I didn’t even really need to force myself to. In general, I really dislike antiheroes in books. I’m all about them in TV – I’ve bingewatched the hell out of two of its biggest recent antiheroes, Walter White and Jax Teller. Love them. But for some reason, I can’t “love to hate” a book character the way I can with one on TV. I have no idea why. Anyway, it […]

Review: Falling for His Best Friend by Katee Robert

Review: We all know I’m such a sucker for a friends with benefits book by now, so this book started out on a good note for me. Especially the “can’t keep their hands off each other” kind of scenario. God, I loved it. The pregnancy twist was something that I had trouble with. It seemed a little sitcom-ish to me. Maybe because a few of my “I’ve seen each episode 100 times” shows have has similar scenarios before: Friends, Will & Grace, and Parks & Rec. Those shows make up about 2/3 of my TV on DVD collection. But yeah, […]

Review: Overruled by Emma Chase

Review: Gah! Talk about a main character you love to hate! Stanton had me hating him 50% of the time (okay, more than that), and yet I was still all swoony swoon swoon whenever he had his charm switch flipped. Can we talk about the definition of wanting to have your cake and eat it, too? Stanton was selfish, possessive, naive, and completely unrealistic. And yet, everyone is okay with it. While most people are just like, “okay, whatever,” others outright endorse his craziness. ‘Scuse me, sir? It frustrated me so much. But then again, so did Drew Evans and his “flu.” […]

Review: Changing His Game by Megan Erickson

Review: Ug, Austin! I think it’s so appropriate that Austin’s name kind of, sort of rhymes with the sound ya make when you just let out all the feels. Unghhhh. So, the backstory: I met Megan Erickson at ApollyCon and she was telling me about this book. I saw the cover and was just kind of hypnotized by it. She was *so* excited about this book that it was completely contagious. I couldn’t wait to read it! I had to take a 5-minute break from my email to do a happy dance when I got an ARC for it. I […]

Review: Getting Lucky Number Seven by Cindi Madsen

Review: This wasn’t bad at all for me, but it also wasn’t standout. This review will be short, because there aren’t really any likes or dislikes to mention. It just failed to make a big impression on me. And yes, these are absolutely my least favorite types of reviews to write. First of all, the themes are two really popular ones right now: bucket lists and the nerdy girl gets the jock best friend. Seriously, looking at my review calendar right now, I see two others that are basically the same. At the end of the day? I’m okay with […]

Review: The Phoenix Campaign by Heidi Joy Tretheway

Review: To be honest, this was a bit of a fizzle to me compared to how much I loved the first book in the series. I didn’t hate it by a long shot, but a lot of things I don’t normally like to read about. In the pros column, here’s what the book had going for it: Just being a political romance reminds me of Scandal, which is always great. It manages to be a political romance, without having too much politics. Too much of that either bores or confuses me. Just the right amount, and it’s actually pretty interesting. The […]

Review: Intercepted by Emma Hart

My Review: Real talk: I’ve had the first two books of this series in the TBR folder of my Paperwhite for months. They’re already on the list I’ve planned out for my TBR challenge, so when I saw this looked just as good and could be read as a standalone, I jumped at the chance to be on the review tour. That way I could at least get a taste for the series now and still stick to my TBR schedule. I’m glad I did. I really liked it. First of all, we all know I love both second chance […]

Review: Dare to Hold by Carly Phillips

My Review: This one was an interesting choice for me going in. I’ve only read the previous two Dare to Love books, not all 5. So before starting this, I’m assuming I didn’t know/invest much in Scott yet. And I didn’t love Meg in Dare to Touch. I felt for her, but once she dropped the clinginess she just seemed kind of bland. But I do looooove these books (the ones I’ve read, at least). So I knew I would read it, especially to learn more about Scott. And when I did read it, Scott was my favorite character. Favorite […]

Review: Beautiful Secret by Christina Lauren

My Review: Hold on tight, girls. This review’s gonna be a long one (for me). Praise Jesus, praise Moses, praise every deity ever for the Stella family. I mean, for real. I’m going to peer pressure Christina and Lauren into writing books for all of the siblings. Through the power of my mind, obviously, since I don’t know them (yet…). I also loved how full-circle Beautiful Secret brought the Beautiful Bastard series. Another irresistible intern and fussy boss. But one of the things I love about Christina Lauren is that they can take a premise that’s been done before and […]

Review: Once Upon a Dare by Jennifer Bonds

My Review: I wasn’t completely sure of my expectations going into this book. I loved the cover (I literally have never once ever disliked a Brazen Entangled cover…literally ever) and the blurb – books with characters in the marketing/advertising/PR industries always draw me in, for obvious reasons. But the title…I wasn’t a fan. In fact, I still don’t think it’s a great fit. I feel like the “Once upon a…” gives it a little bit of a fairy tale connotation, which is what kinda turned me off. I was glad the book was fairy tale-ish. Let’s go over some of […]
