Review: Confessions of a Former Puck Bunny

Review: Love me a good word nerd. ūüôā Plus, word nerds give good banter, so they’re always great as a main character! I definitely didn’t expect to see Lindsay falling for a hockey player after her grudge in Whitney’s book. But now that I think about it, I totally should’ve seen it coming. ūüėČ Also, you know how I loved that Anatomy of a Player reminded me of How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days? Well, there’s a paintball scene in this one, which reminded me of 10 Things I Hate About You, and I loved that too. Now […]

Review: All You Need by Lorelai James

Review: Okay, I think this has been my favorite in the series so far, and I really liked the other two. I don’t even know if there was a specific thing I liked more, just all the things I’ve liked about the series were really amplified. It was just so¬†enjoyable. There were a bunch of scenes that I’ve bookmarked and go back and read when I’m in a 5-minute cab ride or otherwise don’t want to dive into a plot I’m going through for the first time. And they’re not even hot scenes, just fun scenes! Some of the banter […]

Review: The Goal by Elle Kennedy

Review: What a way to end this series! It was definitely my favorite book out of them all. First of all, I don’t know how often I read books in a series where it takes place alongside another one of the books, chronologically. Having this one occur at the same time as The Score¬†was really cool, having those little¬†“I know something you don’t know” moments where you knew more than either of the narrators. This book was also so emotional, even more than the tough stuff in The Score. I could relate to Sabrina’s work ethic and determination, and the […]

Review: Anatomy of a Player by Cindi Madsen

Review: How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days! It was How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days! In a good way – the best way. Except there was no drunken “You’re So Vain.” A disappointment, but I can overlook it because reading drunk karaoke isn’t as fun as listening to and watching it anyway, not by a long shot. Plus, Matthew McConaughey never held much appeal for me, and Hudson does. The book was so cute, and I absolutely loved the “reporter girl” banter between Hudson and Whitney. And man, Whitney kind of sucked as a reporter. It […]

Review: The Score by Elle Kennedy

Review: Once again, I really, really, really need to thank Cora Carmack and her Facebook groups for making me feel FOMO about this series. Best peer pressuring, ever. My life motto is pretty much anything the Gilmore Girls have ever said, and they’ve said a lot about the joys of talking fast and not being serious. They¬†showed even more benefits to fast-talking banter and witty repartee. So my life motto is pretty much “Live Gilmore.” And the characters in the Off-Campus series, even the guys, live like Gilmores. This style of writing and dialogue is what I love, because it’s […]

Review: Once Upon a Power Play by Jennifer Bonds

Review: I really, really liked this one. Oh, the banter! The banter nearly killed me haha. It’s 4 stars for a vagueface reason – there just wasn’t anything to take me from ‘really like’ to ‘love.’ I got invested in the characters and the story, but wasn’t really absorbed in them. That’s not to say they all weren’t really fun. First of all, I love the way we started in Chloe’s head. The circumstances, her outfit, and what ends up happening make up a hilarious combination. Plus, I immediately related to Chloe. And not just because in her physical description, […]

Review: Ryker by Sawyer Bennett

Review: So, I feel like we knew more about Ryker going into his book than we did for any of the other guys. Alex¬†kind of focused more on Sutton’s friends, than Alex’s, so we didn’t know much about Garrett or Zack from that book. And in those two, you just find out bits and pieces for the most part. But since Zack and Ryker had that pretty deep heart-to-heart in book #3, you know about Ryker before his book. And I think that really helped establish the connection. We were already invested in him from page 1. (And if I […]

Review: Zack by Sawyer Bennett

  Zack Review: I have to tell you, I was afraid to read this book. With both Alex and Garrett, I dove into the book the same day I was approved for them on NetGalley. And I either finished that same day, or the very next. I procrastinated reading Zack for weeks. As much as I thought @BennettBooks’ Garrett devastated me, Zack’s storyline was a completely new level of unraveling.. Click To Tweet As much as the main story in Garrett devastated me, Zack’s storyline unraveled me. Frankly, I wasn’t sure I could handle this book. I knew, because 99% […]

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: Love Match by Reggie Thomas

My Review: I hate writing negative reviews, so I’m just going to list this out and get it over with: This was basically a DNF, since I really wanted to give up, but it was like a car wreck. I couldn’t look away. Honestly, I kind of hate-read it, which I don’t like admitting to. It was written like a police report – a flat, factual retelling of events. But then there were also hints of a delusional preteen, who thinks that she has a boyfriend just because a guy smiled at her. Harper honestly just seemed so delusional, to […]
