A Modern Day Fairy Tale! A Princess in Theory by Alyssa Cole [Audiobook Review]

A Modern Day Fairy Tale! A Princess in Theory by Alyssa Cole [Audiobook Review]

  Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review.   It took me a while to get into A Princess in Theory. In fact, I received an ARC last year and I had put it on-hold since then! When I finally caved and bought the audiobook and listened to it, I was delighted but also a little bit distracted. See, I saw Black Panther this year and the accent the narrator, Karen Chilton, used for Thabiso reminded me of the Wakanda accent and I kept picturing Chadwick Boseman in the Black Panther suit. Also, […]

  Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review.   Finally, we get Booker and Karsen’s HEA! Respect is one of my most anticipated releases this year and it did not disappoint! I have been so on-board with Karsen and Booker since I read them in Better When He’s Bold and I was so happy that they got their own book. I am a sucker for bad boys and forbidden romance and Respect checked all my boxes! The first two chapters had me bawling because I totally understood that Booker’s hands were tied. I […]

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 […]

He turned to her, holding out a bag of corn tortillas. “We are making tacos.” He put her in charge of prepping the toppings, then disappeared into the fridge.

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 […]
