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]

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 Finally read The Duke and I by Julia Quinn | Audiobook Review

I Finally read The Duke and I by Julia Quinn | Audiobook Review

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. I have a confession to make. I am a Bridgerton virgin and so when I decided to read The Duke and I, I was not prepared to binge read, in this case, binge listen, to the whole series! What do you mean a VIRGIN? Well, as much as I am a fan of historical romance, I haven’t read this Julia Quinn series! I know, THE HORROR! In fact, I had not read Julia Quinn until last year when I went to a book signing (a book […]

Duke of Desire by Elizabeth Hoyt Book Review

Duke of Desire by Elizabeth Hoyt Book 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.   I hard a time getting into this book. Unfortunately, I haven’t been following the Maiden Lane series and with this being the 12th book in the series, I felt a little bit lost. I have only read a few books in this series and the one I recently read was Darling Beast, the 7th book in the series and it was amazing! That said, I still enjoyed Duke of Desire. I think it […]

This Book was Hilarious! The Duchess Deal by Tessa Dare Audiobook Review

  Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. I received an ARC for this book a few months before it was set to release but I had a hard time getting into it. I love Tessa Dare but that first chapter was excruciating.  I knew immediately that I would be listening to this book on audio so I waited until the release date and borrowed a copy of it from the library. Holy smokes The Duchess Deal blew me away! I don’t even know I had a hard time reading it in the […]

This Book Didn’t Meet My Expectations. Third Son’s a Charm by Shana Galen Book 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.   Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. Ewan Mostyn is a very interesting character. With that being said, he is the only reason why this book got 3 stars! I have been anticipating this book. I love the trope – rich girl gets a bodyguard and falls in love with said bodyguard. But this wasn’t executed as well as I […]

Disciplined by the Duke by Alyson Chase Blog Tour + Giveaway

“Look at me.” His voice was quiet. Kind. But no less commanding than when he gave orders to his steward. Or his dogs. Her gaze rose over hard thighs, the fall of his trousers, the flat expanse of his stomach, and the wider expanse of his chest. She looked up until his eyes captured hers and held on. Her breath caught in her throat. His eyes weren’t the gray of unyielding stone anymore, but rather the shifting silvers and subdued greens of an ocean tossing in a storm. “I don’t make a habit out of breaking anyone’s, anything’s, spirit.” Dropping […]
