Review: Everywhere and Every Way by Jennifer Probst

Review: Eek, this book, these characters, were highly cute. We know I love workplace romances, and I don’t hate a good enemies to lovers story. Two tightly wound type A people working together can be hilarious (when it’s not actually happening to you). Between Morgan and her Olivia Pope wardrobe (HOW DO THESE WOMEN NEVER SPILL?) and Caleb’s micromanaging his brothers, they both really needed to get laid. Good thing they did. But they still fought a lot, which is always good. Hot romances always have non-serious fighting / bickering – Tangled, Beautiful Bastard, etc. The one thing I wasn’t totally […]

Review: Getting Rough by C.L. Parker

Review: The 2 most important things about this book: There’s another cliffhanger at the end, and it’s just as painful / frustrating as the last one. There’s also a Grease reference, which makes everything okay, because Grease is the word. So yeah. Authors, if you’re going to give me a cliffhanger, peppering it with showtune lyrics will make me not care. (Although it did stir up some of the nerves I have about this weekend’s Grease Live – I want it to be good! But what if it isn’t?) You know how some people say to deliver bad news with […]

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: Playing Dirty by C.L. Parker

Playing Dirty Review: First of all – GAH! This ending. Okay – be warned. It’s a cliffhanger. And it does not warn you. And it feels pretty unnecessary. The book left off in a place that would’ve been a great place to end the story completely. It always kind of throws me off when you have a series that normally focuses on each couple for one book, but then has one couple that breaks the pattern. That being said, rant over and I will definitely still read the other books in this series. Amazing dirty talk – as I start […]

Review: Overruled by Emma Chase

Review: Gah! Talk about a main character you love to hate! Stanton had me hating him 50% of the time (okay, more than that), and yet I was still all swoony swoon swoon whenever he had his charm switch flipped. Can we talk about the definition of wanting to have your cake and eat it, too? Stanton was selfish, possessive, naive, and completely unrealistic. And yet, everyone is okay with it. While most people are just like, “okay, whatever,” others outright endorse his craziness. ‘Scuse me, sir? It frustrated me so much. But then again, so did Drew Evans and his “flu.” […]

Review: Beautiful Secret by Christina Lauren

My Review: Hold on tight, girls. This review’s gonna be a long one (for me). Praise Jesus, praise Moses, praise every deity ever for the Stella family. I mean, for real. I’m going to peer pressure Christina and Lauren into writing books for all of the siblings. Through the power of my mind, obviously, since I don’t know them (yet…). I also loved how full-circle Beautiful Secret brought the Beautiful Bastard series. Another irresistible intern and fussy boss. But one of the things I love about Christina Lauren is that they can take a premise that’s been done before and […]

Review: Once Upon a Dare by Jennifer Bonds

My Review: I wasn’t completely sure of my expectations going into this book. I loved the cover (I literally have never once ever disliked a Brazen Entangled cover…literally ever) and the blurb – books with characters in the marketing/advertising/PR industries always draw me in, for obvious reasons. But the title…I wasn’t a fan. In fact, I still don’t think it’s a great fit. I feel like the “Once upon a…” gives it a little bit of a fairy tale connotation, which is what kinda turned me off. I was glad the book was fairy tale-ish. Let’s go over some of […]

Review: Say My Name by J. Kenner

My Review: Upfront, I’ll say I was iffy about this book. Honestly, there have been so many Damien and Nikki novellas that my interest is waning, and I didn’t love the other spin-off that’s out. But I did really, really love Damien and Nikki and I love J. Kenner‘s writing, so I opened this up. I really love when books expand on a really, really minor character from a previous book or series. Yes, in Damien and Nikki’s life, Sylvia isn’t minor. But we don’t see much of her in their books. Which makes this so interesting. We go into […]
