Slow Burn is Not for Me | Truth or Beard by Penny Reid [Audiobook Review]

Slow Burn is Not for Me | Truth or Beard by Penny Reid [Audiobook Review]

Penny Reid’s books have been highly recommended to me from romance readers that I trust. Unfortunately, this may be one of those authors that I just can’t get into. I don’t know what to think of this book? Maybe Penny Reid’s writing is just not for me. I mean, it’s written well, but I don’t exactly love the romance in Truth or Beard. And as much as I love punny titles, this could not make up my underwhelming reaction to this book. This may be an unpopular opinion to all the fans of this series. This is my fourth Penny Reid book and […]

A Fae Romance Based on Hades & Persephone! Promise of Darkness by Bec McMaster [ARC Review]

A Fae Romance Based on Hades & Persephone! Promise of Darkness by Bec McMaster [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. I didn’t know I needed a book like this until I started reading Promise of Darkness! It’s everything I want in a fantasy romance and more! Plus, did I mention that it is also a Hades and Persephone retelling? Promise of Darkness is a first-person POV romance in the heroine, Vi’s perspective. I normally love it when it’s a multiple POV romance because I always want to get a glimpse of the heroes thoughts, feelings, and motives. […]

It was Boring. Lies by Kylie Scott [Book Review]

It was Boring. Lies by Kylie Scott [Book Review]

  One of my highly anticipated releases this month is Lies by Kylie Scott. I loved the premise and when I started reading it and discovered the names of the main characters Elizabeth and Thom – I was stoked! I mean, I LOVED that the hero is a spy and has been hiding his identity from this fiance and the heroine was planning to leave him because he sucked! I am a fan of the Blacklist and two of the characters there are Elizabeth and Tom, who didn’t really have an HEA on that show. When I was reading Lies, I […]

I FINALLY read The Friend Zone by Abby Jimenez [Audiobook Review]

I FINALLY read The Friend Zone by Abby Jimenez [Audiobook Review]

I finally read The Friend Zone by Abby Jimenez. Honestly, I have been hesitant to even read this book EVEN THOUGH I requested an ARC for it. I liked the premise and I thought I was brave enough to read it but the publication date had come and gone, and the hype for this book grew and grew, and still, I couldn’t start reading it. For those of you who are not familiar with me, I have PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome) and have been struggling for it for years. Pierre and I are also trying for a baby. I expected […]

Seriously Addictive & Binge Worthy! Slave to Sensation by Nalini Singh [Audiobook Review]

Seriously Addictive & Binge Worthy! Slave to Sensation by Nalini Singh [Audiobook Review]

This book deserves all the stars!! I ABSOLUTELY LOVE this world! Also, QUEEN NALINI SINGH is definitely appropriate! I have been dragging my feet on starting this series – because HELLO, there are already 18 books in the series! And this does not include the novellas! Ack! I’ve read Angel’s Blood and also gave it 5 stars, but it seriously can’t hold a candle on how amazing Slave to Sensation is! But I am seriously kicking myself because I didn’t start reading this book when it first came out! I mean, I know the reason why – I was mostly […]

A Fiery Start to a New Series! The Rogue King by Abigail Owen [ARC Review + Giveaway]

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. I am absolutely in love with this book! The Rogue King is everything I want in my paranormal romance! I mean, it features dragon shifters, phoenixes, and other paranormal beings! As you may have noticed, I have been reading a lot of dragon shifter books, so I picked this up when I read the blurb. I loved the premise and The Rogue King did not disappoint! Our hero is a rogue golden dragon, […]

I don’t want this series to end! All Roads Lead to You by Jennifer Probst [ARC Review]

I don’t want this series to end! All Roads Lead to You by Jennifer Probst [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. I’ve really enjoyed the Stay series by Jennifer Probst and All Roads Lead to You just hit me in the feels for multiple reasons! We’ve met Harper Bishop in the first book The Start of Something New and I’ve really been intrigued by her. She is the youngest sister in the Bishop family, and she is a veterinarian. And what I really love most about the Stay series are the animals! Hei Hei […]

A Heroine in Disguise! Sins of a Wicked Duke by Sophie Jordan [Book Review]

A Heroine in Disguise! Sins of a Wicked Duke by Sophie Jordan [Book Review]

  I seriously had deja vu when I was reading Sins of a Wicked Duke! This is a Sophie Jordan backlist book and I swear I have read it before! Well, I think I read this years ago because I couldn’t exactly remember the plot, but while I was reading it, I felt that I read it before! I really love the premise – a spinster who is not of the aristocracy was fired from another job because she refused the advances of her employers’ son only to meet a rake who propositions her for the same thing! She doesn’t bite but […]

It had an awesome premise! Born to Kill by Erin Trejo [DNF Review]

It had an awesome premise! Born to Kill by Erin Trejo [DNF Review]

My thoughts are probably more on the unpopular side, but I was frustrated by this book. Born to Kill is my first Erin Trejo book and it really put me off. First, I liked the premise – dark romance, unrequited romance, Mafia. I was seriously excited to start reading this book. Unfortunately, I made it to 50%ish before I had to mark it as a DNF. Before I delve into the negatives, I have to say that I liked the danger surrounding the whole story. I liked how Trejo set up the atmosphere of the book with the first few […]
