Review: Fool Me Once by Katee Robert

Review: “Aubry Kaiser doesn’t like people—actually, that’s not right. She loathes people. With her crippling anxiety…” Hi, this book is basically about me. I love Aubrey so, so much because she did things I can’t even imagine! I will never go to Comic Con because omg the crowds, so I totally got how she felt about the gaming conference. And the idea of a human shield? Totally accurate. Love having someone to stand behind. It helps that I’m short, so it doesn’t take much to block my line of sight. 😛 Now on to Quinn. Wow, I’ve inadvertently been on […]

Review: Beautiful Boss by Christina Lauren

Review: This was an intensely emotional read for me. Tears the whole time! Not sad tears or even happy tears all the time, just…intensity tears. Beautiful Bastard is one of my all-time favorite series. My reading tastes and preferences have changed a lot since I first read Beautiful Bastard in 2013. In fact, it’s just starting to occur to me that I don’t even read books by most of the authors who were my favorites back then. But Christina Lauren, and this series, are still at the top of my “love” list. And while I loved the first two books, […]

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: 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: 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 […]

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 […]
