A Little Bit Sinful by Robyn DeHart | Book Review + Giveaway

A Little Bit Sinful by Robyn DeHart | Book Review + Giveaway

A Little Bit Sinful is the first book that I read written by Robyn Dehart and it turned out to be a refreshing read to me as well. This is also the second book in the series and I think it did well as a stand alone, seeing as I had not read the first book yet.

This story centers on Clarissa trying to steer her “perfect match” George, into proposing marriage to her. Unfortunately, it has taken him quite a while to propose and Clarissa is getting antsy.

I have a varied list this month with 5 being Historical Romances, 2 YAs, 1 Fantasy, 1 Time Travel, and 1 Contemporary Romances.  However, I still see my currently reading list mounting […]

The Prince’s Bride by Julianne MacLean | Book Review

The Prince’s Bride by Julianne MacLean | Book Review

I thought the start of the story was very interesting. I liked Veronique’s spunk and I actually started to fall for prince charming, Nicholas! I loved the part where they were talking on either side of the door. Unfortunately, once the big secret was revealed, the story turned out to be very convenient and predictable. While Nicholas saved Veronique and her family, he didn’t really show her his love. I thought their love turned out to be pretty superficial.

Across the Universe by Beth Revis | Book Review

Across the Universe by Beth Revis | Book Review

First off, I would like to say that I love the cover. This was one of the books from the bookstore that I had to stop and read the blurb just because of the cover. This book is also a good example of the cliche, “do not judge a book by it’s cover.”

That being said, I enjoyed the story. I thought it read like it was written for a younger YA audience, but what the heck, it was OK. It is a unique take of the genre Utopia/Dystopia. I hessitate to call it dystopia since the setting does not happen on Earth and the themes tend to lean toward Utopian.

The Seduction of Emily by Rachel Brimble | Book Review

The Seduction of Emily by Rachel Brimble | Book Review

MY THOUGHTS This story was a slow start for me.  I struggled a little through the whole book and there were a few times that I had to put the book down and then pick it up after a few hours. I did enjoy the romance between Emily and Will and I thought they were a perfect match.  Emily’s strength of character and kindness was the perfect salve for Will’s […]

March Wrap-Ups

March Wrap-Ups

I apologize for posting my March wrap-up mid month since I was so busy the first week of April since it was my birthday week.  Yay me!  Anyway, I am now back to reading Historicals! For the last few of weeks, I have noticed that I have been reading a lot of Young Adult romances. Not that these romances aren’t good reads but I haven’t really been reading a lot […]

A Long, Long Sleep by Anna Sheehan | Book Review

A Long, Long Sleep by Anna Sheehan | Book Review

My Thoughts I was very surprised when I read A Long Long Sleep. I actually read a review on this book while blog hopping (I forgot which blog it was) and I thought the blurb sounded very interesting. When the ebook was available at the library, I immediately checked it out and promptly forgot about it. Fast forward to three days before the book was due and I received an […]

Ten Reasons to Stay by Sabrina Jeffries | Book Review

Ten Reasons to Stay by Sabrina Jeffries | Book Review

This novella was a very quick read for me. I was able to read it in a couple of hours or so. While this had a very promising plot, I thought the story was ok. Maybe because it is a novella and the author had to shorten the storyline – it just didn’t work for me. I like my romance to be well developed and not a lust at first […]
