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 […]

The Friendship is the best thing in this book! Love on Lexington Avenue by Lauren Layne [ARC Review]

The Friendship is the best thing in this book! Love on Lexington Avenue by Lauren Layne [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 on Lexington Lane was a book that I was highly anticipating this year, but it really turned into a disappointing read. To be honest, I wasn’t expecting this book to be Chick Lit. Now, don’t get me wrong, I am okay with Chick Lit, it’s just not my cup of tea. At all. I guess this may be why I couldn’t get into Passion on Park Avenue. I really love the premise for Love on Lexington Avenue. This […]

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 […]

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 […]

Insta-lust? The Lying Hours by Sara Ney [ARC Review]

Insta-lust? The Lying Hours by Sara Ney [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 can’t tell you how much I LOVE the Douchebag series! I’ve only read the first two books, but the characters have captured my heart! I was really excited to find out that there will be a 5th Douchebag book and I could not wait to read it! I probably shouldn’t have gotten my hopes up to much because I kinda feel so-so about Abe and Sky’s book The Lying Hours. Not […]

Sexy & Fun! Stripped by Zoey Castile [Audiobook Review]

Sexy & Fun! Stripped by Zoey Castile [Audiobook Review]

  As someone who hasn’t seen Magic Mike at all, I wasn’t expecting to enjoy reading Stripped. I thoroughly enjoyed it! Of course, this book features an opposites attract romance! Stripped was enjoyable on audio, by the way! And I love that it was written in dual POV! Also, did I mention that I absolutely love the heroine, Robyn?! I think she was the best part of this book, by the way, because I could totally relate to her. Not that Fallon wasn’t good, but his insecurities touched my cynical heart as well. One of the best scenes will probably be […]

Steamy, Sporty, & LOL! Scoring Wilder by R.S. Grey [Audiobook Review]

Steamy, Sporty, & LOL! Scoring Wilder by R.S. Grey [Audiobook Review]

I’ve been looking for soccer themed romance books to read and a lot of romance readers recommended Scoring Wilder. This book was a fun and sexy sports romance read with a touch of the forbidden! If you don’t know already, Pierre watches Premier League Mornings (this is a top-level English football league system), he’s also watching the Philippine Team Azkals compete in the Asian Cup (our first year to qualify), so this theme is so on point! Anyway, what I do love about Scoring Wilder is Kinsley and Becca’s friendship! Man, these two were snarky and fun and basically, I […]

This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.   Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. He Kissed Me First is my very first Sara Ney and this definitely won’t be my last. He Kissed Me First is funny and snarky and OMG the banter was epic! It’s no secret that I love the best friend’s brother trope and He Kissed Me First has this trope and the enemies-to-lovers romance! So, here we have […]

Enemies to Lovers with a dash of the Forbidden! Hot Asset by Lauren Layne [Book Review]

Enemies to Lovers with a dash of the Forbidden! Hot Asset by Lauren Layne [Book Review]

  Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review.   Hot Asset is my first Lauren Layne book and I won’t be my last! I actually read the second book Hard Sell already and it was also as good! I am such a fan of the forbidden romance trope and the thought of a Wall Street Investor and an SEC investigator would be an awesome pair? And would this even be possible?! One of my guilty pleasures is watching the docu-series on MSNBC American Greed so I’m pretty familiar with how this thing goes. […]
