Meet Mary Sue & Gary Stu! The Hookup by Kristen Ashley [Audiobook Review]

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. I bought this audiobook because it was on sale for $1 or something when I got the free ebook on Amazon and I can’t believe I actually finished the whole book! No, I’m not saying that The Hookup is not good, it’s just that the main characters were a Mary Sue and Gary Stu! And I haven’t said this about any character ever! I mean, I’m all for a good girl and good boy characters but SO PERFECT? Really? Izzy, the SUPER Amazing WOMAN Here’s the deal, […]

What an Emotional Rollercoaster! Hate to Want You by Alisha Rai [Audiobook Review]

What an Emotional Rollercoaster! Hate to Want You by Alisha Rai [Audiobook Review]

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review.   Hate to Want You is the first book by Alisha Rai that I read and it won’t be my last! You can say that this book has a lot of drama and it was a bit over the top but still so good! The story picks up 10 years after all the drama and scandal of both the Oka-Kane and Chandler families. This is a classic Romeo and Juliet story about warring families only it ends with an HEA. I’m a sucker for second-chance romance […]

I Wanted More Heat! Losing It & Keeping Her by Cora Carmack [Audiobook Review]

I Wanted More Heat! Losing It & Keeping Her by Cora Carmack [Audiobook Review]

This is the first book that I read written by Cora Carmack and I enjoyed it! This is another taboo romance because the hero is her professor but he is also not that much older than the heroine. The good thing about this romance is that they didn’t really “hookup” until AFTER the heroine’s graduation! Losing It was a perfect New Adult listen for me during the holidays because it was pretty short and sweet. Although, I wanted there to be more heat and sexy times! So yeah, this book felt too sweet for the New Adult romances that I had been […]

Oh, the Feels! An Offer from a Gentleman by Julia Quinn [Audiobook Review]

Oh, the Feels! An Offer from a Gentleman by Julia Quinn [Audiobook Review]

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. I normally don’t like Cinderella retellings (except for Cinder by Marissa Meyer) but An Offer from a Gentleman snuck into my heart early in the book. In fact, I was brought to tears! This is usually my measure for loving a book. I mean, if a book makes me cry, it is up there on my favorite list! Initially, I had reservations about it since we don’t really know a lot about Benedict Bridgerton other than him being the second son. We also don’t see much […]

What a Surprising Christmas Romance! Crashed Out by Tessa Bailey [Book Review]

What a Surprising Christmas Romance! Crashed Out by Tessa Bailey [Book Review]

I received this book for free from the Publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. Wow, just WOW! Crashed Out turned out to be such a surprise! This is the fourth Tessa Bailey book that I read and it surprised me – it was so good! I am a sucker for unrequited romance and this one was perfect! Also, the heroine, Jasmine, is also older than the hero, Sarge. Oh, and did I mention that she used to babysit him? I know, I know, the […]

I Finally read The Duke and I by Julia Quinn | Audiobook Review

I Finally read The Duke and I by Julia Quinn | Audiobook Review

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. I have a confession to make. I am a Bridgerton virgin and so when I decided to read The Duke and I, I was not prepared to binge read, in this case, binge listen, to the whole series! What do you mean a VIRGIN? Well, as much as I am a fan of historical romance, I haven’t read this Julia Quinn series! I know, THE HORROR! In fact, I had not read Julia Quinn until last year when I went to a book signing (a book […]
