Grief, Love, and Moving On | Unbreak My Heart by Lauren Blakely [ARC Review + Giveaway]

Grief, Love, and Moving On | Unbreak My Heart by Lauren Blakely [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. Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review.   I’m used to Lauren Blakely’s emotional rom-coms, but Unbreak My Heart is not it! I wasn’t expecting the all the emotions and I did not expect that this would be about pain, loss, and moving on. Unbreak My Heart starts a few weeks after Ian, Andrews brother passes away due to cancer. In this part, Andrew is trying […]

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 […]

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 […]

Melt for You turned out to be a 5-star read and I literally could not stop listening to it! I was laughing out loud and crying (sometimes at the same time)! Yes, it was THAT good! I normally […]

Cry Your Eyes Out! Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry [Audiobook Review]

Cry Your Eyes Out! Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry [Audiobook Review]

  Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review.   I’m not really into reading YA Contemporary Romance because it’s YA and I normally get frustrated by high school antics (I mean, not like I wasn’t a teenager back then). Sometimes, I can’t help but keep rolling my eyes. Pushing the Limits surprised me in a good way! This book is everything I thought a YA book isn’t – real and emotional and deals with adult themes. The Characters I love how these two broken characters met and fell in love. Echo has been hurt by […]

Tough Love | Recovered by Jay Crownover [Book Review]

Tough Love | Recovered by Jay Crownover [Book Review]

  Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review.   “Some souls were never meant to be saved. They might end up on the right path, but without fail, they will veer off. It’s all they know how to do. No matter how badly they might be hurting other people, they still lose their way. Honestly, the hurt they cause will never compare to how much hurt they inflict upon themselves.” -Cable, Recovered   There are a number of reasons why I picked up Recovered by Jay Crownover but I don’t know why it […]

Courage, Love, & All the Feels! The Year We Fell Down by Sarina Bowen [Audiobook Review]

Courage, Love, & All the Feels! The Year We Fell Down by Sarina Bowen [Audiobook Review]

  Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. I didn’t know what to expect when I read The Year We Fell Down by Sarina Bowen. To say that I was surprised is putting it mildly. The Year We Fell Down is everything I want in a romance and more. I wasn’t expecting to love this book as much as I did. The Year We Fell Down is really a book of courage, how to overcome the things real life has handed to you. I love Corey and Adam. But really, what made this […]

Music & Romance | Roomies by Christina Lauren [Audiobook Review]

Music & Romance | Roomies by Christina Lauren [Audiobook Review]

  Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. I wasn’t expecting much from Roomies. To be honest, based on the first couple of chapters that I read last year, it didn’t feel like the usual Christina Lauren book that I expected. Fast-forward to last month and I was broken! I picked up the audiobook last month and I was able to get through the first few chapters! Before I knew it, I was hooked, even though Roomies read like women’s fiction than a contemporary romance. Not that there is anything wrong with women’s fiction, it’s just […]
