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 […]

It was Boring. Lies by Kylie Scott [Book Review]

It was Boring. Lies by Kylie Scott [Book Review]

  One of my highly anticipated releases this month is Lies by Kylie Scott. I loved the premise and when I started reading it and discovered the names of the main characters Elizabeth and Thom – I was stoked! I mean, I LOVED that the hero is a spy and has been hiding his identity from this fiance and the heroine was planning to leave him because he sucked! I am a fan of the Blacklist and two of the characters there are Elizabeth and Tom, who didn’t really have an HEA on that show. When I was reading Lies, I […]

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 […]

It had an awesome premise! Born to Kill by Erin Trejo [DNF Review]

It had an awesome premise! Born to Kill by Erin Trejo [DNF Review]

My thoughts are probably more on the unpopular side, but I was frustrated by this book. Born to Kill is my first Erin Trejo book and it really put me off. First, I liked the premise – dark romance, unrequited romance, Mafia. I was seriously excited to start reading this book. Unfortunately, I made it to 50%ish before I had to mark it as a DNF. Before I delve into the negatives, I have to say that I liked the danger surrounding the whole story. I liked how Trejo set up the atmosphere of the book with the first few […]

Enemies to Lovers + Food! The Opposite of You by Rachel Higginson [Book Review]

Enemies to Lovers + Food! The Opposite of You by Rachel Higginson [Book Review]

  I got The Opposite of You for free when it was on sale and I read it on a whim. WOW! I was delightfully surprised! The Opposite of You has a heroine who is starting her own food truck parked across a 5-star restaurant featuring a Michelin starred chef! So, YES there is food, LOTS OF FOOD! I live in Los Angeles and food trucks are very popular here and I have tried a bunch of them, so reading about them is the cherry on top! When I started reading The Opposite of You, I really didn’t know what to expect. But I just […]

This book brought me to tears! Another Sky by Jayne Frost [ARC Review]

This book brought me to tears! Another Sky by Jayne Frost [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.   Another Sky by Jayne Frost surprised me in a lot of ways. I was not expecting this book at all. It’s an amazingly written book about struggle, depression, and dealing with loss. I was reading part of this book on the plane and I was brought to tears! You should definitely have tissues ready for this book! In Another Sky, both the hero and heroine are damaged – but both are also at a […]

The Epilogue Saved this Book! The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren [Audiobook Review]

The Epilogue Saved this Book! The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren [Audiobook Review]

  I’ve seen The Unhoneymooners on Bookstagram a lot and I finally got the chance to listen to the audiobook! Unfortunately, I was a little disappointed until I listened to the epilogue! Unfortunately, the epilogue can’t save the book for me. Yes, I have mixed feelings with this book! The Unhoneymooners is an enemies-to-lovers romance. And while that is one of my favorite tropes and I liked Olive and Ethan’s banter and arguments, and yes, I liked the first part of the book. I was very disappointed by the hero, Ethan. I felt that he was spineless and I couldn’t […]

We Seriously Need a Clown in Our Life! Fix Her Up by Tessa Bailey [ARC Review]

We Seriously Need a Clown in Our Life! Fix Her Up by Tessa Bailey [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’m kicking myself for not starting Fix Her Up right away because this book is absolutely glorious! Picture a birthday clown heroine and a retired baseball player with a touch of hate-to-love and you have this AMAZING book! I have to tell you that I had second thoughts mainly because of the cover. The cover screams women’s fiction or at least something that isn’t too steamy. Boy, was I pleasantly surprised that this book has the […]
