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: The Mistake by Elle Kennedy

Review: First of all, shoutout to my CARMCATS for making me want to read an Elle Kennedy book so badly. 🙂 In the street team’s Facebook group, sometimes it feels like her books are talked about as much as Cora’s herself. And I felt SOO left out when I didn’t have an ARC of The Deal and couldn’t join the talks about how amazing it was until it came out. I obviously bought it, but it went into the TBR pile, of course. So when I got an email about the blog tour for The Mistake, I signed up for that […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Review: The Speak Easy Duet by Melanie Harlow

My Review: This series totally changes the way I feel about historical romance. I had tried a few historicals before, and DNFed all of them. They just felt so historical. The language, the thoughts, the everything, are so different that it’s hard to follow. The language is hard to understand, and trying to interpret it gets in the way of getting lost in the story. The thoughts are from a different world that, while interesting, is hard to relate to. Basically, I just could never get pulled into them. But The Speak Easy Duet is more like a contemporary romance that […]

Review: Uninhibited by Melody Grace

My Review: First things first: the relationship in this book is confusing. The way it’s described from chapter to chapter doesn’t really seem consistent. I found myself constantly questioning what I knew about their past. It wasn’t even that different characters saw it differently. One character will describe it as sweet and innocent in one chapter, and hot and sexy in another. That lack of clarity just left me too confused to enjoy the book much. Alicia was also kind of annoying. Her life was guided by what never seemed much more than a puppy love crush. And even as […]

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 […]

Review: Where the Road Takes Me by Jay McLean

My Review: Oh, I was actually kind of nervous starting this. I loved the cover (a lot), I loved the blurb, I wanted it to be good. But I’ve been in a huge new adult slump for awhile, as seen most recently here. Especially once I realized that the characters were so young, they were still in high school. But once I started it, I was hooked. Like, stay up way later than was healthy to keep reading. And then wake up earlier than was necessary to finish it. Being so exhausted that you have to take a nap on […]
