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: 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 + Giveaway: Truth or Beard by Penny Reid

Truth or Beard Review: Okay, so I think it’s pretty normal and expected to fall in love with the hero of a romance novel. I mean, that’s what I always do. Even if it’s not an endless, everlasting love, 99.9% of the time, my hero is the favorite guy in the book. Sorry, Duane. You’re the 0.1%. You’re not even a whole! Poor Duane. I do love you, I do. Just not as much as Cletus. I fell in love with Cletus more than Duane in #TruthOrBeard. Click To Tweet Cletus walks into a convenience store looking for something fairly normal and walks […]

Review: Sweet Ache by K. Bromberg

Review: Hmmm…does rocker beat racer every time? I’m not sure about every time, but it was true for me here. My only point of comparison for this series is Colton and Rylee, since I haven’t read Slow Burn yet, but I have to say I like this relationship more. Where Colton was the typical demanding alpha, Hawke was more of a carefree, playful alpha. And I loved it. The chemistry between him and Quinlan drove me crazy. There are a few scenes in this book that have made their way to the top of my all-time favorite steamy scenes. 😉 […]

Review: All Played Out by Cora Carmack

Review: All Played Out by Cora Carmack

Review: Eek! Nell, we are each others spirit animals. Always and forever. Any book that’s focused on lists immediately has a soft spot in my heart. Especially to-do lists, and I believe bucket lists kind of fall under that umbrella. Also, a soft spot for Cora Carmack books in general exists in my heart. I can’t decide exactly where All Played Out exists in my personal enjoyment ranking of the Rusk U books,  but right now I think it’s tied for first. It was definitely better for me than All Broke Down, even though I totally loved that. I guess […]

Review: Heat by Penny Reid

Review: This one was probably my favorite of the trilogy! You see Kaitlyn and Martin really well in Heat – the good and the bad. And the ebb and flow of it all is the perfect pace for a novella. It’s a fast pace that I normally dislike with longer books, but works really well here. Plus, can I get a hot damn at the action in this one? Hell yeah. Very, very nice. And the fact that they were on vacation made the constant action a lot more realistic than your average “sex five times a day” romance novel. […]

Review: The Mistake by Elle Kennedy

Review: First of all, shoutout to my CARMCATS for making me want to read an Elle Kennedy book so badly. 🙂 In the street team’s Facebook group, sometimes it feels like her books are talked about as much as Cora’s herself. And I felt SOO left out when I didn’t have an ARC of The Deal and couldn’t join the talks about how amazing it was until it came out. I obviously bought it, but it went into the TBR pile, of course. So when I got an email about the blog tour for The Mistake, I signed up for that […]

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: The Speak Easy Duet by Melanie Harlow

My Review: This series totally changes the way I feel about historical romance. I had tried a few historicals before, and DNFed all of them. They just felt so historical. The language, the thoughts, the everything, are so different that it’s hard to follow. The language is hard to understand, and trying to interpret it gets in the way of getting lost in the story. The thoughts are from a different world that, while interesting, is hard to relate to. Basically, I just could never get pulled into them. But The Speak Easy Duet is more like a contemporary romance that […]

Review: Forbidden Nights by Lauren Blakely

My Review: This series. Mah gawd. I will never tire of it. And this book in particular checked every box on my criteria for a favorite book: A story about friends with benefits/friends becoming more Witty banter and dirty talk Quite a bit of pining Let’s be real, written by Lauren Blakely But Nate and Casey’s relationship seemed so mature, also. I loved that when the ish hit the fan, neither of them flipped the eff out. Internally, a little bit. But it didn’t have any angst or overdramatic B.S. from one little understanding. When there was a sign of […]
