Review: One King’s Way by Samantha Young

Review: Craig! I’m so glad we got his story. Ever since he kissed Joss in book 1, I knew there was more to him than the fun-loving playboy. Or, I knew there would eventually be. And I loved him. He was an all-around good guy, none of that brooding “the hero’s only nice to the heroine” crap that I hate. How do you tolerate someone being a huge douchenozzle to everyone else but nice to you? Do you plan to just not take him out in public or not have him speak to / piss off the other important people […]

Review: Dirty Talk by Megan Erickson

Review: First of all, I cannot for the life of me figure out if I’ve read Dirty Thoughts and it’s driving. me. crazy. I thought I had, and that it was how I’d heard of this series. But then when I downloaded this I noticed there were no other Megan Erickson books in the alphabetical “Dirty” area of my Kindle (sidebar: I have a lot of books whose title start with the word ‘dirty’…). Hmmm. Maybe I hadn’t read it? But then we start the book and Cal and Jenna feel really familiar and I even vividly remember a scene that a friend […]

Review: Chasing Mr. Wrong by Joya Ryan

Review: Recommended for: Gilmore Girls fans and anyone else that gets pulled in by small town charm. I know I’ve said this in other reviews, hell – I even said it in Chasing Desire, but Brazen Entangled never disappoints for me. I first discovered them with Wrong Bed, Right Guy in summer 2012 when I first started reading contemporary romance. I have read them very regularly ever since. And I’ve never legit disliked one. The worst it’s ever gotten is straddling the line between ‘yay’ and ‘meh,’ never spending too much time in ‘meh’ territory. I again loved the small town […]

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: 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% […]

Review: The Espionage Effect by Kat & Stone Bastion

The Espionage Effect Review: Oh – I don’t read suspense often. So when I do, it tends to be very hit or miss. Too much romance and not enough suspense? The suspense feels forced. Not enough romance? Well, I’m a dirty birdy. I get bored. I’m excited to say The Espionage Effect was a hit in my book. There were a few things that really annoyed me, which I’ll get into. But although they annoyed me a lot, they mattered very little. In the grand scheme of the book, at least. So I can overlook them when putting together my […]

Review: The Hierarchy of Needs by Rebecca Grace Allen

Review: The Hierarchy of Needs by Rebecca Grace Allen

The Hierarchy of Needs Review: I loved, loved, loved The Duality Principle. I always devour some good nerd love, and I thought Rebecca Grace Allen wove Gabriella’s professional life (proving her thesis) into her romantic life (Connor proving her wrong) really well. This book’s characters and general plot, I liked just as much. I don’t think the title fit well enough, though. The connection of the story to the hierarchy at needs felt forced at time. It was a lot of tell, and not show. For example, a lot of the connection was drawn by Dean in his head. I […]

Review: Playing Dirty by C.L. Parker

Playing Dirty Review: First of all – GAH! This ending. Okay – be warned. It’s a cliffhanger. And it does not warn you. And it feels pretty unnecessary. The book left off in a place that would’ve been a great place to end the story completely. It always kind of throws me off when you have a series that normally focuses on each couple for one book, but then has one couple that breaks the pattern. That being said, rant over and I will definitely still read the other books in this series. Amazing dirty talk – as I start […]

Review: Dream of You by Jennifer Armentrout

My Review: So, I’ve been intrigued by, but have never read, a 1001 Dark Nights novella before. Mostly because I was kind of confused about how they worked – I knew they were related to other series but wasn’t sure if / how they were related to each other. So I held back from buying any before finally deciding, “maybe I just need to dive in,” and reading this. I’m still kind of really confused about how the 1001 Dark Nights thing works, but I didn’t need to get it to enjoy the book. Don’t you love when you can […]
