Emotional, Shocking, Emotional & the HEA is Satisfying! Long Shot by Kennedy Ryan [Audiobook Review]

Emotional, Shocking, Emotional & the HEA is Satisfying! Long Shot by Kennedy Ryan [Audiobook Review]

  I don’t exactly know how to start this review because Long Shot is a hard book to review. I actually read book 2 Block Shot first and was very hesitant to read Long Shot because of the subject. Yes, this book has trigger warnings for anyone who has experienced abuse because this book deals with it point blank. I think that is what makes this book a riveting read and ultimately what made the HEA very, very satisfying. I won a signed copy of this book from Malia (@romanceschmomance) and it took me a while to get into. Heck, […]

A Classic Emotional Romance! Kiss an Angel by Susan Elizabeth Phillips [Audiobook Review]

A Classic Emotional Romance! Kiss an Angel by Susan Elizabeth Phillips [Audiobook Review]

  When I said I had never read SEP before, people gasp. Then they go ahead and recommend the Chicago Stars series or they tell me I HAVE to read Kiss an Angel. Naturally, I avoided the book like the plague! In fact, I received a copy of this book in mass market paperback in my last Avon Addicts box a few years ago. Now I know why this book is HIGHLY recommended. I mean, PEOPLE, if you HAVEN’T read Kiss an Angel, the time to read it is NOW. Kiss an Angel is probably one of the most memorable books I’ve ever read […]

Sexy & Fun! Stripped by Zoey Castile [Audiobook Review]

Sexy & Fun! Stripped by Zoey Castile [Audiobook Review]

  As someone who hasn’t seen Magic Mike at all, I wasn’t expecting to enjoy reading Stripped. I thoroughly enjoyed it! Of course, this book features an opposites attract romance! Stripped was enjoyable on audio, by the way! And I love that it was written in dual POV! Also, did I mention that I absolutely love the heroine, Robyn?! I think she was the best part of this book, by the way, because I could totally relate to her. Not that Fallon wasn’t good, but his insecurities touched my cynical heart as well. One of the best scenes will probably be […]

Steamy, Sporty, & LOL! Scoring Wilder by R.S. Grey [Audiobook Review]

Steamy, Sporty, & LOL! Scoring Wilder by R.S. Grey [Audiobook Review]

I’ve been looking for soccer themed romance books to read and a lot of romance readers recommended Scoring Wilder. This book was a fun and sexy sports romance read with a touch of the forbidden! If you don’t know already, Pierre watches Premier League Mornings (this is a top-level English football league system), he’s also watching the Philippine Team Azkals compete in the Asian Cup (our first year to qualify), so this theme is so on point! Anyway, what I do love about Scoring Wilder is Kinsley and Becca’s friendship! Man, these two were snarky and fun and basically, I […]

This Book Broke Me! More Than Words by Mia Sheridan [Audiobook Review]

This Book Broke Me! More Than Words by Mia Sheridan [Audiobook 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.   It’s been a while since I ugly cried and this book tore me to shreds! More than Words broke me just in the prologue! I tell you, I have not cried this much since a few months ago! I have found an author whose backlist will be read by me! Full disclosure, I received an ARC for this book last year but I wasn’t in the right mood to read it. This year, I […]

Enemies to Lovers with a dash of the Forbidden! Hot Asset by Lauren Layne [Book Review]

Enemies to Lovers with a dash of the Forbidden! Hot Asset by Lauren Layne [Book Review]

  Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review.   Hot Asset is my first Lauren Layne book and I won’t be my last! I actually read the second book Hard Sell already and it was also as good! I am such a fan of the forbidden romance trope and the thought of a Wall Street Investor and an SEC investigator would be an awesome pair? And would this even be possible?! One of my guilty pleasures is watching the docu-series on MSNBC American Greed so I’m pretty familiar with how this thing goes. […]

Curvy Girls for the WIN! It Had To Be You by Susan Elizabeth Phillips [Audiobook Review]

Curvy Girls for the WIN! It Had To Be You by Susan Elizabeth Phillips [Audiobook Review]

  Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review.   It Had To Be You is my very first SEP book and I fell in love with it! This book was published in 1994 and that is really important to note because it affects your understanding of the book. I’m what you call someone who grew up in a time prior to the internet boom, so I know what it was like prior to that. So yeah. This book has a little bit of a nostalgia factor. No cell phones! Car phones?! No social […]

Angsty & Tough! Breaking the Rules by Katie McGarry [Book Review]

Angsty & Tough! Breaking the Rules by Katie McGarry [Book Review]

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review.   I had a hard time finishing Breaking the Rules. In fact, I was contemplating on DNFing the thing, but I hit a chapter where the story captivated me. See, I’m not a fan of YA contemporary romance since they’re just too young for me (I know it’s a YA book) but Pushing the Limits was so good, I decided to read Echo and Noah story. This is the in-between story of what happened after they finished high school and before the events of the second […]
