Kept Me Up All Night! Playing with Fire by Rebecca Hunter [ARC Review]

Kept Me Up All Night! Playing with Fire by Rebecca Hunter [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.   Playing with Fire is the first Rebecca Hunter book I read and it won’t be my last! This book ticked all my boxes – second chance romance – check! A balance between steam and relationship development – check! Let’s just say that I am one happy reader! As you know, I am such a fan of second chance romance and class disparity romance! The hero, Simon, is a second generation Cuban who […]

Real and Emotional! The One You Fight For by Roni Loren [ARC Review]

Real and Emotional! The One You Fight For by Roni Loren [ARC 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.     One of my most anticipated books this year is probably The One You Fight For by Roni Loren. To be honest, after reading The Ones Who Got Away, I was broken and thought nothing else would top it, but I was wrong! The One You Fight For is equally as good! While I was reading this book, the shooting in Thousand Oaks happened and it did […]

Featuring a Sweet Beta Hero! How She Likes It by Carla de Guzman [ARC Review]

I received this book for free from the Author in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. How She Likes by Carla de Guzman was a fun and refreshing read! In fact, it’s my first Romance Class book ever! Obviously, it will not be the last! First, I just want to say that I have been wanting to read a Romance Class book for a few years now, but there have been multiple things preventing me from reading them. One of it is the fact that I […]

Don’t get me wrong, I still enjoyed it, […]

A Modern Day Fairy Tale! A Princess in Theory by Alyssa Cole [Audiobook Review]

A Modern Day Fairy Tale! A Princess in Theory by Alyssa Cole [Audiobook Review]

  Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review.   It took me a while to get into A Princess in Theory. In fact, I received an ARC last year and I had put it on-hold since then! When I finally caved and bought the audiobook and listened to it, I was delighted but also a little bit distracted. See, I saw Black Panther this year and the accent the narrator, Karen Chilton, used for Thabiso reminded me of the Wakanda accent and I kept picturing Chadwick Boseman in the Black Panther suit. Also, […]

Courage, Love, & All the Feels! The Year We Fell Down by Sarina Bowen [Audiobook Review]

Courage, Love, & All the Feels! The Year We Fell Down by Sarina Bowen [Audiobook Review]

  Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. I didn’t know what to expect when I read The Year We Fell Down by Sarina Bowen. To say that I was surprised is putting it mildly. The Year We Fell Down is everything I want in a romance and more. I wasn’t expecting to love this book as much as I did. The Year We Fell Down is really a book of courage, how to overcome the things real life has handed to you. I love Corey and Adam. But really, what made this […]

Hot Damn! Crossing the Line Series by Tessa Bailey [Audiobook Review]

Hot Damn! Crossing the Line Series by Tessa Bailey [Audiobook Review]

Hot damn, the Crossing the Line series was awesome overall! I actually binge-listened this series (not in order, mind you) and it was good. Overall, I gave this series 4/5 hearts, but each individual book has a rating range of 3-4 hearts. The Crossing the Line series has a 60-40 balance between suspense and romance, where romance gets the largest chunk of each of the books. This is exactly what I love! I do wish there was more action in the books, though. Also, I love all the female heroes are unique in their own way, kick-ass and have baggage! It’s refreshing since […]

Overly Hyped. Epic Fail. The Wall of Winnipeg and Me by Mariana Zapata [Audiobook Review]

Overly Hyped. Epic Fail. The Wall of Winnipeg and Me by Mariana Zapata [Audiobook Review]

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. Multiple people from my book club recommended that I read The Wall of Winnipeg and Me by Mariana Zapata because of the awesome slow burn romance. Unfortunately, this book wasn’t for me and it ended up as a DNF for me. Now let me explain, I am one of those readers who DNF books quickly, but I did TRY my damned best to finish this book and gave it chance after chance. Until ultimately, I finally had to stop torturing myself and end it at 72%. […]
