Q&A: Getting to Know The Ripped Bodice

Hey everyone! I’m SO excited about what I have for you today. If you’ve been on social media lately, you’ve probably seen a post or two about The Ripped Bodice. If you haven’t, here’s the lowdown. The Ripped Bodice is aiming to become the first bookstore in the US to exclusively sell romance. Yes, that’s right. All romance. A whole store! Amazing, right? I would not mind getting locked in there (one of my biggest irrational fears is getting locked in a store all night, because of a cartoon I saw when I was 5). Right now, they’re running a […]

Review: The Pitch by Belinda Williams

Review: Eh. My hopes were so high for this. I’m always a sucker for a hero or heroine working in PR or marketing. So when I see that, I jump. I think I need to start being more selective, especially when I’m normally so fucking picky when selecting books to read. Those careers, and dance, are my exceptions. It was a pretty cliche “woman trying to have it all” story where everything worked out a little too easily. Conflicts weren’t particularly conflicty. Struggles were overcome or worked out easily. Everyone got along all the time. And the workplace dynamics really bothered […]

Review: One King’s Way by Samantha Young

Review: Craig! I’m so glad we got his story. Ever since he kissed Joss in book 1, I knew there was more to him than the fun-loving playboy. Or, I knew there would eventually be. And I loved him. He was an all-around good guy, none of that brooding “the hero’s only nice to the heroine” crap that I hate. How do you tolerate someone being a huge douchenozzle to everyone else but nice to you? Do you plan to just not take him out in public or not have him speak to / piss off the other important people […]

Review: Hard Beat by K. Bromberg

Review: So, I didn’t quite remember Tanner at first – even when he mentioned his sister once or twice. Then the third time or so, he mentioned his sister by name, and that’s when I put it together. But by his first trip up to the rooftop, I didn’t really care who he was. 😛 What I loved most about Hard Beat: the location. How many contemporary romances have you read lately that take place in the Middle East? Not your average beach area, small rural town, or big city that most contemporary and new adult books are located in. […]

The Weekly Write-Up: Females are Strong as Hell

The Weekly Write-Up is where I talk about what’s gone on in the past 168 hours, both on the blog and off. Jump to: It’s My Life On the Blog Links I Lurve Book Bumblings It’s My Life It was a pretty busy week last week. I’m having a medical thing done this week and am not sure how much I’ll be able to work during that time, so I needed to get ahead just in case. For both my day job, my blogs, and freelancing. Crazy, crazy! Also, Halloween prep. Aka obsessively tracking Amazon tracking to make sure things […]

Review: Friction by Sawyer Bennett

Oh man. I’ve finally decided the best way to describe Sawyer Bennett. She’s doing to careers in law what Shonda Rhimes did to careers in hospitals in 2005: made them seem damn sexy. (Although Shonda’s shift towards “fixing” and getting away with murder makes me think maybe these things are sexy?) . @BennettBooks is like the Shonda Rhimes of making the law sexy. Click To Tweet Like seriously? They both have the “sex everywhere around the office as if it’s just watercooler chat” vibes going for them. Who else was really intrigued by those smoke-filled walls? Although I have to wonder if […]

The Weekly Write-Up: Badass Book Bloggers

The Weekly Write-Up is where I talk about what’s gone on in the past 168 hours, both on the blog and off. Jump to: It’s My Life On the Blog Links I Lurve Book Bumblings It’s My Life Hey you! So it’s been a week or two. So I’m gonna rhyme, to make up for the missed time. Man, I should’ve been a rapper. I feel like a duet with me could bring out untapped potential with Drake – reuniting after that electric hug all those years ago… So, yeah. Life’s been crazy, to say the least. I’m freelancing. Kind […]

Hey everyone! How badly do you need this right now? I’m not sure I’ve ever been more behind on reviews! It’s partially out of my control –  I’ve had a mystery health issue for a few months that leaves me too tired to read and blog at night. Another part of it is that I’ve started a side biz, so that’s on me, but I’m super excited so it’s worth it! I have started finding new times to read, since I’m going to bed earlier and used to do most of my reading then. I pretty much read from 12:30-2:00 […]

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 […]
