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 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: 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: Dare You To by Rhian Cahill

Dare You To Review: This book was okay, but quick (82 pages according to Goodreads) and nothing spectacular. Very average. It was enjoyable and a good choice when you have an hour to kill or need something short to read while you’re waiting on an upcoming release. My main issue is that the whole thing felt very rushed. I love a good novella, but a lot of times there’s a lot of pacing issues. For example, in this book it felt like C.L Parker was trying to cram a full novel’s worth of plot into a novella’s word count. It […]
