Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins | Audiobook Review

Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins | Audiobook Review

My Thoughts I really don’t know how to review this book.  I initially borrowed it because I was intrigued by the premise – the heroine is a daughter of a Fallen Angel and a Guardian Angel and falls in love with a son of a Fallen Angel.  Sadly, I was wrong.  Let me start by enumerating the things that I didn’t like about this book.  Anna Whit was sickeningly sweet.  Okay, so just because you were a daughter of a Guardian Angel doesn’t mean that you have to be a goody-two-shoes and one really really sweet that it borders on […]

Evermore by Alyson Noël | Audiobook Review

Evermore by Alyson Noël | Audiobook Review

My Thoughts “Meh…unbelievable” I don’t know how to start this review at all.  Having said that, I know that I am not going to pick up the sequels – ever (pun intended)!  If you do want to try this out, check out your local library (which I thankfully did) to see if you like it. The story starts off pretty strong.  Ever Bloom (right?!) is the only survivor of a fatal car crash and she moves to Laguna Beach, California to live with her father’s twin sister.  The result of the car crash?  She can see auras and can read […]

Eleven Scandals to Start to Win a Duke’s Heart by Sarah MacLean | Book Review

Eleven Scandals to Start to Win a Duke’s Heart by Sarah MacLean | Book Review

My Thoughts “A little bit frustrating but ok” Eleven Scandals is the third book in the Love by Numbers series and it features Juliana Fiori and Simon Pearson, Duke of Leighton (we know him as the fiance of Lady Penelope in A Rogue by Any Other Name). In Eleven Scandals, we find out the real reason why Simon is averse to scandal. His younger sister is actually embroiled in a scandal herself and he plans to wed before the ton gets a whiff of it. Enter Lady Penelope Marbury (read my review for A Rogue by Any Other Name), who is […]

No Good Duke Goes Unpunished by Sarah MacLean | Book Review

No Good Duke Goes Unpunished by Sarah MacLean | Book Review

  The third book in the Rules of Scoundrels series, is about Temple (the boxer and enforcer of The Angel) and Mara, the girl who was believed to be dead AND the reason why Temple was banished from society. I had great expectations in this book since I have been quite intrigued about Temple since I read about him in A Duke by Any Other Name (Rules #1).  I was dying to find out who would be his salvation but I was a little bit surprised that MacLean paired him with Mara the person he was believed to have killed. […]

How to Lose a Duke in Ten Days by Laura Lee Guhrke | Book Review

How to Lose a Duke in Ten Days by Laura Lee Guhrke | Book Review

My Thoughts “A tale of second chances” How to Lose a Duke in Ten Days is Laura Lee Guhrke’s second book in the An American Heiress in London series.  I thought a story focusing on the arranged marriage that was never consummated and the matchmaking failure Belinda (When the Marquess Met His Match, An American Heiress in London #1) made would be a delicious story.  However, I was disappointed…again despite Guhrke being a favorite author. I love the premise: arranged marriage, the husband comes back to claim his bride, and hero and heroine discover love.  But that was about it.  The […]

Everbound by Brodi Ashton | Book Review

Everbound by Brodi Ashton | Book Review

 “The unexpected twist in the end made it an amazing read” Everbound is the second book of the Everneath series by Brodi Ashton.  This book is not a stand alone and it basically will not make any sense to you if you skip reading the first book, Everneath.  Read my Everneath review here which I basically did not give a lot of hearts for.   Because I wasn’t to happy about the first book, I had been dragging about reading the sequel.  In fact, I had borrowed it a few months ago from the library and ended up not reading […]

He could hear her fumbling about and realized she probably sought her tinderbox. “To keep an uninvited man waiting.” […]

Betrothed by Elizabeth Elliott | Book Review

Betrothed by Elizabeth Elliott | Book Review

Another favorite!  I obtained this book while browsing a local second hand bookstore back in the Philippines and bought it when it became available via ebook.  Sadly, I left my paperback in the PH and hopefully, it will still remain in good shape. This book starts off with Baron Guy of Montague arriving at Halford Hall and spotting Lady Claudia.  Guy is immediately intrigued by her and plans to make her his bride.  That is, until Baron Lonsdale hatches a plot to keep Guy from obtaining Halford Hall at a fair price.  Unfortunately, this plot ends up with Guy and […]
