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 […]
~Karsen~ I was stuck to the spot, trapped by all the jagged, sharp pieces of my broken fantasies. I wanted to bolt, to run as far away as I could, but I couldn’t move. I felt like the shards would rip me to shreds any direction I turned. Even when the naked woman continued making out with the man of my dreams right in front of me, I was stuck in the same spot. The noises they were making were loud and graphic and all-encompassing. I could hear them echoing in the empty places in my chest where my heart […]

Once such book is Melt for You by J.T. Geissigner. I’ve never heard or read this author before and I was NOT disappointed! 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 […]
After the last course—chocolate mousse—the three of us go tripping back across the cold lawn in the dark, Aurora in the lead. I’m the tiniest bit tipsy and wearing heels. So naturally, I stumble on a frozen clod of snow and nearly fall. But Jake catches my hand to steady me. “Thanks,” I breathe. Curiously, his warm fingers remain curled around mine until we reached the door of Habernacker. I try not to feel ridiculously excited about it. He lets go when we all reach the third floor. When Aurora opens the door, he follows us inside until we all […]
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 […]

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 […]
I received this book for free from the author via Audible 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. Well, well, well. Part-Time Lover was a charming surprise! Let me preface this review by saying that I LOVED Wanderlust so much that this book did not meet my expectations. Also, this book is one of my highly anticipated books this year! But since I read Wanderlust first, I was a tad bit disappointed. We meet Elise in Wanderlust. She is […]
