OMG THE FEELS! Devil in Spring by Lisa Kleypas Audiobook Review

OMG THE FEELS! Devil in Spring by Lisa Kleypas Audiobook Review

  Don’t want to read the whole review? Β Click to jump to the Skinny Review. Devil in Spring was absolutely DELIGHTFUL! Actually, I was a little bit worried about this book because although Pandora was very interesting inΒ Cold-Hearted Rake andΒ Marrying Winterborne, she tended to become very irritating, which really frustrated me. A LOT. Finding out who the hero for this book was, BLEW me away! I actually re-readΒ Devil in Winter last year because I was so excited! As many know, Sebastian St. Vincent is one of Lisa Kleypas’ favorite and beloved heroes. I can see why. But I don’t agree. […]

Insta-love at its WORST! The Fairest of Them All by Cathy Maxwell Audiobook Review

Insta-love at its WORST! The Fairest of Them All by Cathy Maxwell Audiobook Review

Don’t want to read the whole review? Β Click to jump to the Skinny Review. I honestly don’t know where to start reviewingΒ The Fairest of Them All. To say that I was disappointed is an understatement. I am INFURIATED. Okay, I’d like to explain why my feelings are this… harsh. I absolutely HATE insta-love! Sure, there are books that can do this well, but this was NOT it! There is just too much insta-love in this book that I cannot… ARRGHH!! Sigh. Another reason why I am extremely disappointed is becauseΒ The Fairest of Them All made my books pubbed in 2016 […]

Don’t want to read the whole review? Β Click to jump to the Skinny Review. Hello to my very first disappointing read in 2017! I thought it was quite unfortunate that I finished reading this disappointment this morning! I mean, am I reading the wrong book? Isn’t Imogen supposed to be a SPY?! I feel so betrayed! I also thought the timeline to be off. They met 1 year […]

Flipping Pages: Fair is the Rose by Meagan McKinney Audiobook Review

Flipping Pages: Fair is the Rose by Meagan McKinney Audiobook Review

Reviews of Books Written Before Year 2000. Lions and LaceΒ andΒ Fair is the Rose became available to borrow from the library at the same time, so it was a perfectΒ for binge reading! Luckily, the narrator Lisa Flanagan was very good! Although I didn’t LOVEΒ Fair is the Rose as much as I lovedΒ Lions and Lace, it is still one of my most memorable reads. I am not a fan of Western Historical Romance, but there was a time where I read a bunch of them. Fair is the Rose picks up about 3 years after the events ofΒ Lions and Lace and tellsΒ is […]

Don’t want to read the whole review? Β Click to jump to the Skinny Review. Where do I start withΒ Mogul?Β This book was honestly one of my most anticipated reads for 2017, especially after I readΒ Baron and absolutely LOVED it. In fact, I ratedΒ Baron 5 hearts, it was that good. Unfortunately,Β Mogul didn’t live up to my expectations. As much as I want to love it, I just couldn’t. I think […]

Flipping Pages: Lions & Lace by Meagan McKinney Audiobook Review

Flipping Pages: Lions & Lace by Meagan McKinney Audiobook Review

Reviews of Books Written Before Year 2000. Lions and LaceΒ is perhaps one of my favorite historical romance books of all time. Yes, I said it. ALL TIME! Heck, I carted this thing from the Philippines to the US the very first time I moved here, which was waaaay back in 2005. My copy is also pretty well loved that the front cover actually came off! I also remember purchasing my very first copy of this book from a used bookstore which explains why it was super battered. Don’t worry, I actually bought another copy now. Thank you, Amazon! Lions and […]

Don’t want to read the whole review? Β Click to jump to the Skinny Review. I honestly wasn’t too sure about this book going into this book. I was a little underwhelmed by Magnate, book 1 in the Knickerbocker Club series. Fortunately, I didn’t listen to my misgivings and gave Baron a shot and OMG I was blown away! I loved Will and Ava so much, their chemistry just […]

I received this book for free from the Publisher via Edelweiss & the Avon Addicts Program 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? Β Click to jump to the Skinny Review. It looks like a lot of historical romances are doing retellings of classic movies (not that I am complaining). With YA doing the classic/fairy tale retellings, I think this is perfect! As you can tell, While the Duke was Sleeping is a retelling of While You Were Sleeping with […]
