Review: More Than Comics by Elizabeth Briggs

Review: This was one of those books that I found still available on NetGalley months after its release, so it was a nice book I could take my time through and pick up between books with tight deadlines. I felt like I really took my time reading it more than I usually do, which had both its pros and its cons. I felt like I retained it all short-term more than I would have (not needing to reread paragraphs twice in a row or anything) otherwise. But I also don’t remember my initial reactions to the book as much as […]

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 […]

#TBT Review: Manwhore by Katy Evans

Review: This is kind of a mixed one for me. Normally, I usually use #ThrowbackThursday reviews to highlight my faves. But while reading Ms. Manwhore, I realized that I hardly remembered the first two books in the series. Like, to the point that I hadn’t even realized I never finished Manwhore +1. That’s bad. For me, that’s extremely rare. So I went back and started rereading the series and just wanna review as I go! I read both books in the series in one weekend, which obviously meant I sacrificed sleep for reading. So that might have something to do with […]

Review: Ms. Manwhore by Katy Evans

Review: Recommended for: Chi-town lovers and The Newsroom bingewatchers Short book (novella) = short review. I have mixed feelings about this. One the one hand, I’m never one to dislike extra bits & pieces of a favorite series. And I loved the Manwhore books. (Fun fact: it turns out I only read like 75% of Manwhore +1 before having to put it down for an ARC coming out soon. I forgot about this until I was halfway through this book and realized I spoiled myself [ick, that sounds gross]. As soon as I realized, I went back and finished book […]

Review: Under My Skin by J. Kenner

Review: So, this series kind of devolved for me. I really liked Say My Name, but then On My Knees kind of felt like “filler.” And in this book, it felt like Nikki and Damien 2.0 – like reusing stories and changing the names and some details. I felt the big twist was so obvious from the start anyway.  For it to be dragged out for so long started to get boring. So I didn’t even get the satisfaction of closure on that topic. This book just really didn’t do much. I’m actually liking Damien more than in his own books. Whenever […]

Review: Find Me by Laurelin Paige

Review: I liked this book a lot. On its own it would have been 4 stars. But I feel like it needs to be part of/related to Free Me – and I just felt so differently about each of them. With Free Me, I was actually nervous to read it and wasn’t sure if I liked it. I loved it. For that reason, I was expecting to love Find Me. But for some reason, I just felt this disconnect between the two books. Here’s where my feelings get confusing, because there was nothing I disliked about it. I still loved the chemistry between J.C. and […]

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 Coincidence of Coconut Cake by Amy E. Reichert

Review: This book was pretty so-so. I always enjoy a light chick lit, which this was. It’s been awhile since I’ve gone back to this genre, so that part of the reading experience was fun. And it was a fun read. It was easy and light, as well as funny at parts. The perfect beach read – which makes me mad that it was the only paperback I planned to read at the beach earlier this summer. I ended up taking out of my bag at my parents house right before we left and left it there. #wompwompwomp Anyway, the […]

Review: Made for Us by Samantha Chase

Review: This book was cute and fun, but overall very ‘meh.’ So, with Aiden? Talk about a chip on your shoulder. His constant angst was kind of annoying. It’s been established that I’ve over unnecessary angst that seems forced or shallow. While his big ole chip was necessary to the storyline, since it basically drove all the shitty stuff he did, I just had to roll my eyes at it. Mostly because of his “the head of the family needs to be alone” outlook – if he looked up to both his parents so much, how did that even make […]

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. […]
