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 […]

Cry Your Eyes Out! Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry [Audiobook Review]

Cry Your Eyes Out! Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry [Audiobook Review]

  Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review.   I’m not really into reading YA Contemporary Romance because it’s YA and I normally get frustrated by high school antics (I mean, not like I wasn’t a teenager back then). Sometimes, I can’t help but keep rolling my eyes. Pushing the Limits surprised me in a good way! This book is everything I thought a YA book isn’t – real and emotional and deals with adult themes. The Characters I love how these two broken characters met and fell in love. Echo has been hurt by […]

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 the all the female heroes are unique in their own way, kick-ass and have baggage! It’s refreshing […]
