It was a bit…. boring. Chasing Cassandra by Lisa Kleypas [Audiobook Review]

It was a bit…. boring. Chasing Cassandra by Lisa Kleypas [Audiobook Review]

We finally have the last Ravenels book and one of my highly anticipated books of 2020! Unfortunately, Chasing Cassandra was a bit of a disappointment for me. But at 3.5 stars, it was still an enjoyable book. Let me explain. I have been intrigued by Tom Severin since he first appeared in Cold-Hearted Rake. As you now already know, I am a fan of self-made men and Lisa Kleypas writes the best ones! Derek Craven, John McKenna, and Simon Hunt, anyone? But I digress. Chasing Cassandra was sweet and fun and quirky (not too quirky, like Pandora’s book) and it […]

A Really Slow Burn Romance | We Are Us by Tara Leigh [ARC Review]

A Really Slow Burn Romance | We Are Us by Tara Leigh [ARC 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. We are Us is my first DNF of this year. I am legit DNFing at 90%!!!! I was very interested in the plot of We are Us. In fact, I was bawling through the flashback – especially during the time when Poppy and Gavin met in the woods at thirteen and their friendship grew and ultimately changed to love. That flashback really broke me. Unfortunately, the flashback took more than half of the […]

A Unique Paranormal World! War of Hearts by S. Young [ALC Review]

A Unique Paranormal World! War of Hearts by S. Young [ALC Review]

I received this audiobook for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the audiobook or the content of my review. I had heard a lot of amazing things about War of Hearts by S. Young (Samantha Young) but I did not expect this book to blow me away! I don’t read a lot of paranormal romance books, and I also didn’t read a lot of detailed reviews of the book. So, when I saw that this was offered as an ALC, I decided to request it and I do not regret it one bit! War of Hearts is […]

A Fantastic Ending to an Already Amazing Series! The One For You by Roni Loren [ARC Review]

A Fantastic Ending to an Already Amazing Series! The One For You by Roni Loren [ARC 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 is no secret that I love second-chance romance and The One For You ticked all the right boxes for me. Not only that, but this book is also an unrequited romance! And it’s the hero that’s been crushing on our gal for since they were kids! I’ve also been waiting for Kincaid’s HEA since I read The Ones Who Got Away because she was the brains of their little group and basically rounded up all […]

There was no chemistry at all! Desperate Measures by Katee Robert [Book Review]

There was no chemistry at all! Desperate Measures by Katee Robert [Book Review]

I liked the premise of Desperate Measures. Unfortunately, I felt that there was no chemistry between Jasmine and Jafar! I’ve also watched the Disney version of Aladdin multiple times and I just can’t get the image of the animated Jafar out of my head, so thinking about him as the hero was just eeeew! Desperate Measures is a twisted fantasy erotic romance retelling that really adds a new twist to the fairy tale retellings that have been so popular. Frankly, I do love a good twist in fairy tale retellings but I guess I’m just not the audience for this specific […]

I wanted more groveling. Love Her or Lose Her by Tessa Bailey [ARC Review]

I wanted more groveling. Love Her or Lose Her by Tessa Bailey [ARC 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. Love Her or Lose Her is one of my highly anticipated books of 2020 and I am here to report that it did not live up to my hype – for me, at least. I really, really, really wanted to love Love Her or Lose Her, unfortunately, I was really disappointed in Rosie and Dominic’s second chance romance. In Fix Her Up, the first book in the series, we are introduced to Rosie and teased with […]

Alpha’s Commentary is Spectacular! Wolf Gone Wild by Juliette Cross [ARC Review]

Alpha’s Commentary is Spectacular! Wolf Gone Wild by Juliette Cross [ARC 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. Wolf Gone Wild is one of my most anticipated books of 2020 and I read it before the end of last year! I did not know what to expect when I started reading – but it was all such a surprise and I love this book! Mateo is unable to shift and needs a hex breaker to break the curse he is in. Enter Evie, a top-notch hex breaker and sparks begin to […]
