The Other Duke by Jess Michaels | Book Review

The Other Duke by Jess Michaels | Book Review

MY THOUGHTS “A refreshing take on the marriage of convenience trope!” The Other Duke opens the new Notorious Flynns series written by Jess Michaels and I thoroughly enjoyed it!  It is a refreshing take on the marriage of convenience trope popular in Historical Romance stories but adds a new flavor to it with the tortured heroine! Serafina MacPhee has been betrothed to the Duke of Hartholm since she was a child.  She has also been dreading her wedding to the loathsome Cyril, current Duke of Hartholm, her betrothed when the unthinkable happens, Cyril dies and she is FREE.  Well, almost because […]

Waking Up with the Duke by Lorraine Heath | Re-read Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS   TIMES READ I have read this book multiple times already but this is the first time I listened to it via audiobook.   WHEN I FIRST READ I purchased the paperback way back when it was released in 2011.  Of course, my copy was left in the Ph where all my physical books are (yes, I’m pretty sad about that).   ORIGINAL REVIEW I wasn’t really reviewing books back then so I haven’t really written an actual review for this book but I remember that I LOVED it so much.  Initially, I was a little iffy about the […]

What a Wallflower Wants by Maya Rodale | Book Review + Giveaway

MY THOUGHTS Warning: This review may contain spoilers What a Wallflower Wants by Maya Rodale is the third book in her Bad Boys and Wallflowers series and features Prudence, the third lady in the trio of best friends. I’m a little bit torn by this book.  And although I liked the writing and the style, I found it hard to relate and like Prudence.  I also didn’t like the abduction scene and how it came about.  I just felt that it was too… uhmm frivolous or something. I really felt for Prudence, though since she was sexually assaulted by someone […]
