Slow Burn is Not for Me | Truth or Beard by Penny Reid [Audiobook Review]

Slow Burn is Not for Me | Truth or Beard by Penny Reid [Audiobook Review]

Penny Reid’s books have been highly recommended to me from romance readers that I trust. Unfortunately, this may be one of those authors that I just can’t get into. I don’t know what to think of this book? Maybe Penny Reid’s writing is just not for me. I mean, it’s written well, but I don’t exactly love the romance in Truth or Beard. And as much as I love punny titles, this could not make up my underwhelming reaction to this book. This may be an unpopular opinion to all the fans of this series. This is my fourth Penny Reid book and […]

The Friendship is the best thing in this book! Love on Lexington Avenue by Lauren Layne [ARC Review]

The Friendship is the best thing in this book! Love on Lexington Avenue by Lauren Layne [ARC Review]

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. Love on Lexington Lane was a book that I was highly anticipating this year, but it really turned into a disappointing read. To be honest, I wasn’t expecting this book to be Chick Lit. Now, don’t get me wrong, I am okay with Chick Lit, it’s just not my cup of tea. At all. I guess this may be why I couldn’t get into Passion on Park Avenue. I really love the premise for Love on Lexington Avenue. This […]

It was Boring. Lies by Kylie Scott [Book Review]

It was Boring. Lies by Kylie Scott [Book Review]

  One of my highly anticipated releases this month is Lies by Kylie Scott. I loved the premise and when I started reading it and discovered the names of the main characters Elizabeth and Thom – I was stoked! I mean, I LOVED that the hero is a spy and has been hiding his identity from this fiance and the heroine was planning to leave him because he sucked! I am a fan of the Blacklist and two of the characters there are Elizabeth and Tom, who didn’t really have an HEA on that show. When I was reading Lies, I […]

It had an awesome premise! Born to Kill by Erin Trejo [DNF Review]

It had an awesome premise! Born to Kill by Erin Trejo [DNF Review]

My thoughts are probably more on the unpopular side, but I was frustrated by this book. Born to Kill is my first Erin Trejo book and it really put me off. First, I liked the premise – dark romance, unrequited romance, Mafia. I was seriously excited to start reading this book. Unfortunately, I made it to 50%ish before I had to mark it as a DNF. Before I delve into the negatives, I have to say that I liked the danger surrounding the whole story. I liked how Trejo set up the atmosphere of the book with the first few […]

The Epilogue Saved this Book! The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren [Audiobook Review]

The Epilogue Saved this Book! The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren [Audiobook Review]

  I’ve seen The Unhoneymooners on Bookstagram a lot and I finally got the chance to listen to the audiobook! Unfortunately, I was a little disappointed until I listened to the epilogue! Unfortunately, the epilogue can’t save the book for me. Yes, I have mixed feelings with this book! The Unhoneymooners is an enemies-to-lovers romance. And while that is one of my favorite tropes and I liked Olive and Ethan’s banter and arguments, and yes, I liked the first part of the book. I was very disappointed by the hero, Ethan. I felt that he was spineless and I couldn’t […]

I was Hugely Disappointed! Huge Deal by Lauren Layne [Audiobook Review]

I was Hugely Disappointed! Huge Deal by Lauren Layne [Audiobook Review]

  I was really expecting a lot from Huge Deal, in fact, after reading book 1, I was already anticipating Kate and Kennedy’s HEA. Unrequited love is another of my catnips and this book promised to be awesome! Unfortunately, that was not the case, for me, at least. Huge Deal turned out to be an utter disappointment for me. In fact, this book kept me wanting for more! I guess I wanted more banter and more steam! I mean, after we have been teased about Kennedy and Kate since book 1, most especially book 2, I was already expecting to […]

Insta-Love at it’s Worst! Mouth to Mouth by Tessa Bailey [Book Review]

Insta-Love at it’s Worst! Mouth to Mouth by Tessa Bailey [Book Review]

  Mouth to Mouth surprisingly dropped without any notice last year and I was shocked! I did not expect this book at all and I hurriedly purchased it when it came out. Man, was I thoroughly disappointed! I have been reading a lot of Tessa Bailey books for a while and I have enjoyed the majority of the books I read by her, so I had high hopes of the book going in. A few of my romance bookstagram friends who received an ARC for the book were singing their praises for this book, so yeah, I was definitely going […]

This Book Did Not Deliver. The Scoundrel in Her Bed by Lorraine Heath [ARC Review]

This Book Did Not Deliver. The Scoundrel in Her Bed by Lorraine Heath [ARC Review]

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. I read The Scoundrel in Her Bed in December and this was actually one of my most anticipated reads of last year. In fact, I was ecstatic that I received an eARC of this book because I love this series. Unfortunately, this wasn’t a favorite and it turned out into a dud. Don’t get me wrong, this book is written well. Not only that, Lorraine Heath is one of my favorite authors and I thoroughly […]

Annoying, Immature Heroine! Unchained by J. Lynn [ARC Review]

Annoying, Immature Heroine! Unchained by J. Lynn [ARC Review]

I received this book for free 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. I seriously wanted to love Unchained: Nephilim Rising so bad but honestly, this book is not up to par to Jennifer L. Armentrout’s other books! As you know, I was mad in love with Wait for You with all the amazing characters and a freaking AWESOME brave heroine, but Unchained: Nephilim Rising failed in all the things that matter! […]
