Review: Moonlight on Nightingale Way by Samantha Young

Hey guys! As my new job leaves less time for blogging, I’m trying something new: quick and dirty reviews. This way I can spend less time turning the notes I take while/right after reading, into a review. And I’m still getting all the important stuff across, so why not? Review: Loved it. At first it was reminding me of Wallbanger a little too much. But then again, Wallbanger is fucking fantastic, one of my all-time favorites, so how much is too much? I was questioning the originality, but still loving every minute of it. But then you get to the […]

Review: My So-Called Life by J.D. Hollyfield

Review: Important spoiler alert: this book does not have anyone named Jordan Catalano. :/ I’ve yet to decide how I feel about that. I mean, I know how I feel about the Jordan Catalano, but yeah. You know, it’s funny. The first book of this series that I read was Life Next Door, book #2. Loved it. Went back and read book #1, but I’ve been putting off the review for months. Partly because I always procrastinate non-ARCs, and partly because I don’t want to write it. The writing, well, I wasn’t a huge fan of it. But what did make me […]

Review: Capture by Penny Reid

Review: As we know, I usually don’t love the last book in a series. Because most of the time, all they do is conclude the series. The sole focus of the book is on tying up loose ends and stuff like that. Capture definitely wasn’t like that – the plot moves forward a lot before it gets wrapped up in a pretty bow. I loved how much both Katy and Martin grew in this series. So often in this genre, we romanticize relationships that frankly don’t bring out a character’s best traits. It’s refreshing to see a relationship that, for the most […]

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: 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 […]

Revew: Attraction by Penny Reid

My Review: So I’m going to start trying something new for novellas/serials. Bulleted lists. I always write these as soon as I finish a book, to help me write my review. But developing the bullets into paragraphs and things like that usually doubles the length of the review. When a book is so short in the first place, that feels kind of silly. So, here are my thoughts: There’s something really awesome about a Penny Reid book you can read in one sitting. It means I know I’ll be able to reread it as much as I want. There have […]

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 […]

Review: Say My Name by J. Kenner

Review: Say My Name by J. Kenner

My Review: Upfront, I’ll say I was iffy about this book. Honestly, there have been so many Damien and Nikki novellas that my interest is waning, and I didn’t love the other spin-off that’s out. But I did really, really love Damien and Nikki and I love J. Kenner‘s writing, so I opened this up. I really love when books expand on a really, really minor character from a previous book or series. Yes, in Damien and Nikki’s life, Sylvia isn’t minor. But we don’t see much of her in their books. Which makes this so interesting. We go into […]

Review: The Virgin Romance Novelist by Meghan Quinn

My Review: Oh. My. Fucking. Fuck. This book was HILARIOUS. I have a pretty high bar for comedy (I like to think it’s because I’m so damn hilarious myself), and this book exceeded it by leaps and bounds. It takes a lot for a book to make me laugh out loud. Not even laugh, but make any sort of sound showing amusement. But Meghan had me laughing so hard I was snorting and crying. I think Meghan may be the love child of all of my favorite funny authors combined. Just forget about the logistics that would actually involved in 11 female […]
