Enemies to Lovers & School Rivals | The Risk by Elle Kennedy [ARC Review]

Enemies to Lovers & School Rivals | The Risk by Elle Kennedy [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. The Risk is one of my highly anticipated books of 2019 and I have to say I was a little letdown. Not because of the characters but because I expected more drama. There was such hype surrounding The Risk. Especially after that revelation in The Chase and the mystery hero. Of course, I wanted it to be Jake Connelly because the sparks between Brenna and him were so apparent! And yes, I am so glad that Elle […]

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 […]

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 […]

Overly Hyped. Epic Fail. The Wall of Winnipeg and Me by Mariana Zapata [Audiobook Review]

Overly Hyped. Epic Fail. The Wall of Winnipeg and Me by Mariana Zapata [Audiobook Review]

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. Multiple people from my book club recommended that I read The Wall of Winnipeg and Me by Mariana Zapata because of the awesome slow burn romance. Unfortunately, this book wasn’t for me and it ended up as a DNF for me. Now let me explain, I am one of those readers who DNF books quickly, but I did TRY my damned best to finish this book and gave it chance after chance. Until ultimately, I finally had to stop torturing myself and end it at 72%. […]

Fun and Flirty! The Art of Running in Heels by Rachel Gibson [ARC Review]

Fun and Flirty! The Art of Running in Heels by Rachel Gibson [ARC Review]

I received this book for free from the Publisher in exchange for an honest review. 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. This is the second book by Rachel Gibson that I’ve read and OMG! Can you say CHARMING x 1000? And hilarious, too! I wasn’t even sure that I would like The Art of Running in Heels because of the over-the-top Bachelor type dating show and the heroine, Lexi joined one and she won! However, that runaway […]

Oh, the Nostalgia! Simply Irresistible by Rachel Gibson [Audiobook Review]

Oh, the Nostalgia! Simply Irresistible by Rachel Gibson [Audiobook Review]

  Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. This is my first Rachel Gibson book and I was charmed! Simply Irresistible by Rachel Gibson had all the pop culture references which was full of nostalgia and OMG! I love it! It is pretty obvious that Simply Irresistible was published in 1998. But as much as it felt dated, it still stands the test of time in my opinion. It’s just that I am a little bit used to romances with a higher steam factor. The Characters are AMAZING This is probably one of the […]

An Awesome Sports Romance! King of the Court by Melanie Munton [ARC Review]

An Awesome Sports Romance! King of the Court by Melanie Munton [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 was very surprised that I enjoyed King of Court because I am not sporty at all. I mean,  I know the mechanics of some of the games and I can watch Basketball, but romance? This was also the first book by Melanie Munton that I read and it won’t be my last! Well, King of Court is an amazing read! I also love that it featured a heroine who was going into sports medicine! Usually, […]

Perfect Love by Amanda Cowen Review + Giveaway

Perfect Love by Amanda Cowen Review + Giveaway

I received this book for free from the Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.   So, I’m not really a fan of sports romance and contemporary romance in general but the blurb for Perfect Love intrigued me. Boy, was I surprised! And I mean this in a good way! I was also lucky to read Perfect Sense in preparation to reading this book and I recommend that you read it first before diving into this book. Let me just say that I absolutely HATED the end of Perfect Sense […]
