What a Wallflower Wants by Maya Rodale | Book Review + Giveaway

What a Wallflower Wants by Maya Rodale | Book Review + Giveaway

MY THOUGHTS Warning: This review may contain spoilers What a Wallflower Wants by Maya Rodale is the third book in her Bad Boys and Wallflowers series and features Prudence, the third lady in the trio of best friends. I’m a little bit torn by this book.  And although I liked the writing and the style, I found it hard to relate and like Prudence.  I also didn’t like the abduction scene and how it came about.  I just felt that it was too… uhmm frivolous or something. I really felt for Prudence, though since she was sexually assaulted by someone […]

Wild by Sophie Jordan | Book Review

Wild by Sophie Jordan | Book Review

My Thoughts Wild by Sophie Jordan is the third book in The Ivy Chronicles series. This is the first book in the series that I read and can be read as a stand-alone. Characters from the previous two books pop in and out all throughout the book but they do not add to any confusion if you haven’t read the other books. I initially read this book because I was interested about the plot. Who doesn’t want to read about a good girl paired with a bad boy? I also do not read a lot of contemporary romance and surprisingly, […]

The Earl’s Mistress by Liz Carlisle | Book Review

My Thoughts “A little bit shocking!” Isabella Aldridge is in dire straights.  After being let go from her latest post, she is having problems landing a new one, owing to the fact that she is very pretty.  Her last interview did not go very well when she was propositioned by the Earl of Hepplewood to be his mistress instead of his governess.  Spitting mad, she refuses the offer, no matter that she still has two siblings to raise and to protect from her lecherous cousin.  Still desperate, she rethinks the mistress situation and asks help from her former employer, who […]
