Review: Wicked Sexy Liar by Christina Lauren

Review: I’m really excited because the best way to describe how I feel about this book in relation to the rest of the Wild Seasons series works best as a Beyonce metaphor. I’m a card-carrying member of the #BeyHive. And when it comes to the Queen’s music, I’m all about the dance hits – Get Me Bodied, 7/11, etc. – that I can dance around and do booty pops and hair flips to. They’re fun and light, and that’s why I love them. But then I also love songs like Listen and Blue for the exact opposite reason. They’re heavy and […]

Review: Appealed by Emma Chase

Review: We all know I love friends becoming lovers, girls/boys next door included, and this was an interesting twist on that. While Kennedy and Brent were friends at one point, they sure aren’t when they get together in the book. Childhood friends who grew apart in a painful way means lots of hurt that hasn’t been addressed, because the relationship ended when it happened. So I think this type of story has more of a backstory than most “friends with benefits”-type books that I liked watching play out. And I related to Kennedy’s side of that backstory so hard. I was that […]

Review: The Score by Elle Kennedy

Review: Once again, I really, really, really need to thank Cora Carmack and her Facebook groups for making me feel FOMO about this series. Best peer pressuring, ever. My life motto is pretty much anything the Gilmore Girls have ever said, and they’ve said a lot about the joys of talking fast and not being serious. They showed even more benefits to fast-talking banter and witty repartee. So my life motto is pretty much “Live Gilmore.” And the characters in the Off-Campus series, even the guys, live like Gilmores. This style of writing and dialogue is what I love, because it’s […]

Review: Big Rock by Lauren Blakely

Review: Love, love, love, love, love. I feel like we might’ve found Drew Evans’ best friends? Cross-over episode, please? Spencer had that same brand of “I can get away with it” cockiness, plus all the actual cock talk. Like, a lot of it. I mean, let’s talk about the book’s name. Yes, there’s a rock involved, but that’s not where Spencer’s focus was. Reading the prologue, it was actually a little much. I mean, not the dirtiness itself. Fine by me! But the ego was a little much, and I was kind of going, “What did I just get myself […]

Review: Hard Beat by K. Bromberg

Review: Hard Beat by K. Bromberg

Review: So, I didn’t quite remember Tanner at first – even when he mentioned his sister once or twice. Then the third time or so, he mentioned his sister by name, and that’s when I put it together. But by his first trip up to the rooftop, I didn’t really care who he was. 😛 What I loved most about Hard Beat: the location. How many contemporary romances have you read lately that take place in the Middle East? Not your average beach area, small rural town, or big city that most contemporary and new adult books are located in. […]

Review: Friction by Sawyer Bennett

Oh man. I’ve finally decided the best way to describe Sawyer Bennett. She’s doing to careers in law what Shonda Rhimes did to careers in hospitals in 2005: made them seem damn sexy. (Although Shonda’s shift towards “fixing” and getting away with murder makes me think maybe these things are sexy?) . @BennettBooks is like the Shonda Rhimes of making the law sexy. Click To Tweet Like seriously? They both have the “sex everywhere around the office as if it’s just watercooler chat” vibes going for them. Who else was really intrigued by those smoke-filled walls? Although I have to wonder if […]

Review: Nuts by Alice Clayton

Review: I’m so sorry, Simon Wallbanger. I cheated on you. Well, I’ve done that before. Whoa boy, have I done that before, and I’m not even sorry. With the other men in your series. But I was keeping it in the family, you know? Which either makes it better or worse, I’m not sure… But now, no. And it’s not just a fling. It’s real and it’s deep (hehe). Lord do I worship Alice Clayton. And for good reason. I’ve still been a Will and Grace fan for too long and have to change the names of Jack and Grace […]

Review: Playing with Fire by Kate Meader

Review: Recommended for: Scandal fans (especially #TeamOlitz). I’m not sure why, but I feel under-the-surface similarities between them and this couple. Loved this! Even more than the first book in the series. In Flirting with Fire, I loved the chemistry, the relationship, and Luke on his own. But I didn’t love Kinsey on her own – mostly just as part of “Luke and Kinsey.” In Playing with Fire, I loved both main characters on their own as much as I loved them together. Alex reminded me of someone who was just born to be Wonder Woman for Halloween…or in real life. 😛 […]

Review: Dark Wild Night by Christina Lauren

Review: As much as I loved the rest of the series so far, Dark Wild Night is definitely my favorite so far. I find it kind of funny that: Book #3 was my favorite (so far, at least) for both Wild Seasons and the Beautiful series. Book #3 of each series featured “nerd love” couples. Book #3 of each series featured girls I could relate to. (Although I still find it creepy how much I have in common with Hanna!) And even before I made those connections, one of the reasons I loved this book more than the others was that the love […]

Review: Ryker by Sawyer Bennett

Review: Ryker by Sawyer Bennett

Review: So, I feel like we knew more about Ryker going into his book than we did for any of the other guys. Alex kind of focused more on Sutton’s friends, than Alex’s, so we didn’t know much about Garrett or Zack from that book. And in those two, you just find out bits and pieces for the most part. But since Zack and Ryker had that pretty deep heart-to-heart in book #3, you know about Ryker before his book. And I think that really helped establish the connection. We were already invested in him from page 1. (And if I […]
