Slowing Down for the Holidays | November 2019 Monthly Wraps

Slowing Down for the Holidays | November 2019 Monthly Wraps

Last month on I Heart Romance & YA   Happy Monday, Wormies! Happy Holidays! It’s officially December and we have 24 days left until Christmas! I say 24 because Filipinos celebrate on the 24th so we are up at midnight to greet the 25th! If you’ve been to the Philippines, you’ll obviously notice that Christmas is the best time to visit because of the celebrations! I hope to spend Christmas there again soon! I’ve also been slowing down with my reading because of the holidays! It’s usually one of the few months that I normally don’t read a lot (although […]

Smart and Fun! Outmatched by Kristen Callihan & Samantha Young [ARC Review]

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. I can’t even begin to explain how adorable this romance is! Kristen Callihan and Samantha Young are an awesome writing duo! I have read books written by both authors individually and I enjoyed their books. It didn’t come as a surprise that I loveย Outmatched! Outmatchedย is a quirky and emotional contemporary romance, featuring an adorable heroine and a softie hero! Parker and Rhys are adorable together! I love how both authors spun the enemies […]

A Dramatic, Less Gritty MC Romance | Gypsy King by Devney Perry [ARC Review]

A Dramatic, Less Gritty MC Romance | Gypsy King by Devney Perry [ARC Review]

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. Gypsy King is my second Devney Perry book and it did not disappoint! Devney Perry has a way with writing that captivates you from page 1! Based on the book I read, I was really curious how she would write an MC romance because her writing style isnโ€™t that gritty as what you would expect an MC romance to feel like. I have to say that her style works well with how she […]

A Spectacular Second-Chance Romance! The Kingmaker by Kennedy Ryan [ARC Review]

A Spectacular Second-Chance Romance! The Kingmaker by Kennedy Ryan [ARC Review]

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.   The Kingmakerย by Kennedy Ryan is one book that I did not expect. Wow, was I surprised! The Kingmaker is a spectacular second-chance romance where our hero and heroine had a chance meeting for a few hours during a protest. I was also not expecting this book to be very political – but it is and I love it so much! The Kingmaker checked all the boxes for me. I love second-chance romance […]

A Riveting Bully Romance | Heartless Hero by Mary Catherine Gebhard [ARC Review]

A Riveting Bully Romance | Heartless Hero by Mary Catherine Gebhard [ARC Review]

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. This month is probably the month of bullies and dark romance reads for me. Seriously. I haven’t really read books like this and I am a little bit disturbed but fascinated because I just can’t stop reading them! Heartless Heroย is really a second-chance bully romance with touches of revenge. Theo is definitely one broken anti-hero that I ended up rooting for. Not only are his motivations for vengeance a little bit harsh and […]

Such an Emotional Duet! Girl in Luv/Boy in Luv by Jay Crownover & Rebecca Yarros [ARC Review]

Such an Emotional Duet! Girl in Luv/Boy in Luv by Jay Crownover & Rebecca Yarros [ARC Review]

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. I was so excited to jump into this short duet by Jay Crownover and Rebecca Yarros and wow, what an emotional rideย Girl in Luvย is! I’ve read Jay Crownover before but I’ve never read Rebecca Yarros, and it looks like I will be reading her backlist now! Girl in Luvย really hit me in the feels! I love Langley and Iker so much! While this book is a novella, I felt that Langley’s character growth […]

Slow Burn is Not for Me | Truth or Beard by Penny Reid [Audiobook Review]

Slow Burn is Not for Me | Truth or Beard by Penny Reid [Audiobook Review]

Penny Reid’s books have been highly recommended to me from romance readers that I trust. Unfortunately, this may be one of those authors that I just can’t get into. I don’t know what to think of this book? Maybe Penny Reid’s writing is just not for me. I mean, it’s written well, but I don’t exactly love the romance inย Truth or Beard. And as much as Iย loveย punny titles, this could not make up my underwhelming reaction to this book. This may be an unpopular opinion to all the fans of this series. This is my fourth Penny Reid book and […]

A Fae Romance Based on Hades & Persephone! Promise of Darkness by Bec McMaster [ARC Review]

A Fae Romance Based on Hades & Persephone! Promise of Darkness by Bec McMaster [ARC Review]

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. I didn’t know I needed a book like this until I started readingย Promise of Darkness! It’s everything I want in a fantasy romance and more! Plus, did I mention that it is also a Hades and Persephone retelling? Promise of Darknessย is a first-person POV romance in the heroine, Vi’s perspective. I normally love it when it’s a multiple POV romance because Iย alwaysย want to get a glimpse of the heroes thoughts, feelings, and motives. […]

The Friendship is the best thing in this book! Love on Lexington Avenue by Lauren Layne [ARC Review]

The Friendship is the best thing in this book! Love on Lexington Avenue by Lauren Layne [ARC Review]

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. Love on Lexington Laneย was a book that I was highly anticipating this year, but it really turned into a disappointing read. To be honest, I wasn’t expecting this book to be Chick Lit.ย Now, don’t get me wrong, I am okay withย Chick Lit, it’s just not my cup of tea. At all. I guess this may be why I couldn’t get intoย Passion on Park Avenue. I really love the premise forย Love on Lexington Avenue.ย This […]
