Respect is one of my most anticipated releases this year and it did not disappoint!

I am a sucker for bad boys and forbidden romance and Respect checked all my boxes! The first two chapters had me bawling because I totally understood that Booker’s hands were tied. I […]

Bookstagram Props That Don’t Break the Bank

Bookstagram Props That Don’t Break the Bank

Let’s talk about anything bookish!   Bookstagram props are one of the things that always make me jealous of other book bloggers because I want all those pretty things!

Curvy Girls for the WIN! It Had To Be You by Susan Elizabeth Phillips [Audiobook Review]

Curvy Girls for the WIN! It Had To Be You by Susan Elizabeth Phillips [Audiobook Review]

  Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review.   It Had To Be You is my very first SEP book and I fell in love with it! This book was published in 1994 and that is really important to note because it affects your understanding of the book. I’m what you call someone who grew up in a time prior to the internet boom, so I know what it was like prior to that. So yeah. This book has a little bit of a nostalgia factor. No cell phones! Car phones?! No social […]

Respect by Jay Crownover [Excerpt + Giveaway]

Respect by Jay Crownover [Excerpt + Giveaway]

~Karsen~ I was stuck to the spot, trapped by all the jagged, sharp pieces of my broken fantasies. I wanted to bolt, to run as far away as I could, but I couldn’t move. I felt like the shards would rip me to shreds any direction I turned. Even when the naked woman continued making out with the man of my dreams right in front of me, I was stuck in the same spot. The noises they were making were loud and graphic and all-encompassing. I could hear them echoing in the empty places in my chest where my heart […]
