Indecent Exposure by Tessa Bailey | DNF Review

Indecent Exposure by Tessa Bailey | DNF Review

I received this book for free from the Publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. When I read Disorderly Conduct, the first book in the series, I was delightfully surprised! In fact, I went ahead and requested the second book, Indecent Exposure because Jack Garrett was very interesting and what do you know, the second book is his HEA. But no! This book was an utter disappointment! Where was the charm? Where was the explosive chemistry that I was expecting? Gone. Nada. Zilch. Also, […]

Starfall by Melissa Landers | DNF Review

Starfall by Melissa Landers | DNF Review

I am finally DNFing Starfall because OMG the heroine is super annoying and the hero is so beta that I can’t even! It has been a few months since I put this book on hold and the recent restart still did not help at all! I enjoyed Starflight, the first book in the series. The banter was spot on and the characters were amazing! But Starfall totally missed the mark and did not have the same charm as that of the previous book. I eventually had to DNF the audiobook because I just couldn’t listen to Cassia anymore. She was […]

With that being said, he is the only reason why this book got 3 stars! I have been anticipating this book. I love the trope – rich girl gets a bodyguard and falls in love with said bodyguard. But this wasn’t executed as well as I […]

Skinny Reviews: That Time I Read Paranormal

Skinny Reviews: That Time I Read Paranormal

Click book title to jump to the review: My Life as a White Trash Zombie | Moon Called I haven’t read a lot of paranormal books in a while. I mean, I absolutely love a good vampire book (I absolutely love the Night Huntress series), but I haven’t really ventured into the other paranormal staples like zombies and werewolves. Sure, I love watching movies and TV shows featuring these creatures, but it is not something that I actually love to read. I have been reading a lot of historical romances lately and I picked paranormal to genre cleanse. I bought My Life as a White Trash […]
