Fun and Flirty! The Art of Running in Heels by Rachel Gibson [ARC Review]

I received this book for free from the Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. This is the second book by Rachel Gibson that I’ve read and OMG! Can you say CHARMING x 1000? And hilarious, too! I wasn’t even sure that I would like The Art of Running in Heels because of the over-the-top Bachelor type dating show and the heroine, Lexi joined one and she won! However, that runaway […]

Oh, the Nostalgia! Simply Irresistible by Rachel Gibson [Audiobook Review]

Oh, the Nostalgia! Simply Irresistible by Rachel Gibson [Audiobook Review]

  Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. This is my first Rachel Gibson book and I was charmed! Simply Irresistible by Rachel Gibson had all the pop culture references which was full of nostalgia and OMG! I love it! It is pretty obvious that Simply Irresistible was published in 1998. But as much as it felt dated, it still stands the test of time in my opinion. It’s just that I am a little bit used to romances with a higher steam factor. The Characters are AMAZING This is probably one of the […]

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 […]

Opposites Attract | Rule by Jay Crownover [Audiobook Review]

Opposites Attract | Rule by Jay Crownover [Audiobook Review]

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review.   Rule was another surprising read in 2017 when I was on a New Adult kick. I had read Jay Crownover before when I read her Welcome to the Point series. Rule is a little bit different than her Welcome to the Point series because it is a New Adult romance – but it was still dark and emotional. Rule is a typical hate-to-love-girl-in-love-with-best-friend’s-brother trope but I liked the new spin Jay Crownover injected into it. In Love with Best Friend’s Brother This is one of my […]

Heartbreaking and Real | Wait for You, Trust in Me by Jennifer L. Armentrout [Audiobook Review]

Heartbreaking and Real | Wait for You, Trust in Me by Jennifer L. Armentrout [Audiobook Review]

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. I don’t really know what made me pick-up wait for you by Jennifer L. Armentrout (writing as J. Lynn). To be honest, I received four of the books in this series a couple of years ago but since this wasn’t a genre that interested me, I didn’t bother reading it. Let’s just say that I am kicking myself because I didn’t read these books. I don’t even KNOW WHY I picked it up and whatever fairy impelled me to pick it up, THANK YOU SO MUCH […]

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 Disappointing Series Ender! It’s Hard Out Here for a Duke by Maya Rodale [ARC Review]

I received this book for free from the Publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.   Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. Well, it took me a number of months to get into this book. To say that I was disappointed is such an understatement – this book was MEDIOCRE, to say the least! I was looking forward to this book since I read Lady Bridget’s Diary last year because I liked James. He was written as […]
