Review: The Consequence of Seduction by Rachel Van Dyken

Review: Oh, Reid. What Grandma did to you… Once again, this series toed the line between ridiculous and too ridiculous so well. Aaaaand it had Broadway, which makes everything better. I had no idea this Phantom of the Opera fantasy was a thing, and I kind of love it. I mean, I knew Leslie Knope loved him: But I didn’t realize it was other people, too. She also thinks Ben Wyatt has an elf butt…and likes it. So I don’t always relate to her turn-ons. Back to the main point (which relates pretty well to Leslie Knope, actually), this book […]

Review: Happily Ever Ninja by Penny Reid

Review: One thing I really love about this book is that I feel weird calling it a romance. Is it about a romantic relationship? Yes. But is it about the romantic aspects of that relationship? Not usually. It’s about all the other stuff, the messy stuff that you don’t get in romances because it makes the fairytale less perfect. And I’m all for the fairy tale. I actually still prefer that over realistic any day. But it was a cool change of pace to add in now and then. This was about the passive aggressive arguing, the aggressive arguing, the sadness, […]

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: 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: Sweet Bliss by Helena Rac

Review: First of all, this book was so fun, but so was becoming Twitter besties with Helena Rac and sharing my reactions with her while I read. 😛 @BookBumblings Thanks so much! Hope you enjoy it! ♥♥♥ — Helena Rac (@HelenaRacAuthor) November 9, 2015 @BookBumblings Omg Brittany, you're the first to let me know you started it! I hope you continue to love as you get through the story! 😊 😅 ♥ — Helena Rac (@HelenaRacAuthor) November 16, 2015 But then “needs to read” got in the way of “wants to read” and I caused someone else anxiety, which is […]

Review: Ninja at First Sight by Penny Reid

Review: So, this happened last week: @bberg1010 #NoRegrets — Penny Reid (@ReidRomance) November 17, 2015 And it was really bad, because it was days until I could actually finish because of work and shiz and stuff and more shiz. I had to avoid the Facebook fan group, not because of spoilers but because of reactions I’d be jealous of. But that was the cool thing about this novella, and my lack of overall memory: even though I read a portion of it a year ago, it felt like new. Last year’s version was a shorter story. And when someone with a bad […]

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: 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: Sustained by Emma Chase

Review: This book is what I would call very okay. Bordering on great. It was hilarious, but I didn’t love the characters. So I guess my “thing” with this series is going to be wanting to slap the guys upside the head, and loving them anyways. You just want to slap the guys in this series on the backs of their heads! @emmachse Click To Tweet In Overruled, Stanton was the definition of wanting to have your cake and eat it, too. I mean, the guys in the Tangled series were pretty stupid, too, as are most guys (and girls) […]

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 […]
