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: 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: Recipe for Temptation by Gina Gordon

Review: I have some mixed feelings about this book, but I think they all pretty much cancel each other out so I’m settling in the middle. Also, some of it might be due to this being the first Madewood Brothers book I’ve read, since I was understood it could be read as a standalone. First, I looved the way the book started out. Just the opening scene set up Cole and Penn so well (in some ways, but we’ll get to that), and Cole had an awesome entrance. And the chemistry between them continued in my favorite kind of way. […]

Review: Falling for His Best Friend by Katee Robert

Review: We all know I’m such a sucker for a friends with benefits book by now, so this book started out on a good note for me. Especially the “can’t keep their hands off each other” kind of scenario. God, I loved it. The pregnancy twist was something that I had trouble with. It seemed a little sitcom-ish to me. Maybe because a few of my “I’ve seen each episode 100 times” shows have has similar scenarios before: Friends, Will & Grace, and Parks & Rec. Those shows make up about 2/3 of my TV on DVD collection. But yeah, […]

Review: Getting Lucky Number Seven by Cindi Madsen

Review: This wasn’t bad at all for me, but it also wasn’t standout. This review will be short, because there aren’t really any likes or dislikes to mention. It just failed to make a big impression on me. And yes, these are absolutely my least favorite types of reviews to write. First of all, the themes are two really popular ones right now: bucket lists and the nerdy girl gets the jock best friend. Seriously, looking at my review calendar right now, I see two others that are basically the same. At the end of the day? I’m okay with […]

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 […]

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 […]

Review: Wallbanger by Alice Clayton [Audiobook]

My Review: Squee! My first audiobook review! I kind of don’t like that it’s for Wallbanger, because the overall rating would absolutely be 5 stars if I wasn’t incorporating the audiobook into the rating (more on that later). Just for fun, I thought I’d include my original Goodreads review from way back in 2012: “I could not stop grinning and laughing out loud while reading this book. Caroline is a hilarious protagonist whose language and sense of humor reminded me of so many millennials in their 20s. The witty banter/flirting-but-not-flirting between Caroline and Simon was adorable and actual LOL-inducing. Great, […]
