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 inย Truth or Beard. And as much as Iย loveย 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 […]

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 am addicted to this world! Fated by Rebecca Zanetti [Book Review]

I am addicted to this world! Fated by Rebecca Zanetti [Book Review]

  WOW, I can’t believe the awesomeness of Fatedย by Rebecca Zanetti! Thank you so much to Teresa @reads_romance and Romance Reader for recommending this series! I easily get overwhelmed by really long series, but I just had to dive in! I will try to read the books in order! I’m not really into paranormal and to be honest, it’s a hard genre for me to get into. Well, I got hooked by this series and I just can’t wait to continue reading the series! Fatedย really captured my attention from page 1. That opening scene alone was a little bit scary […]

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 […]

Emotional, Shocking, Emotional & the HEA is Satisfying! Long Shot by Kennedy Ryan [Audiobook Review]

Emotional, Shocking, Emotional & the HEA is Satisfying! Long Shot by Kennedy Ryan [Audiobook Review]

  I donโ€™t exactly know how to start this review because Long Shot is a hard book to review. I actually read book 2 Block Shot first and was very hesitant to read Long Shot because of the subject. Yes, this book has trigger warnings for anyone who has experienced abuse because this book deals with it point blank. I think that is what makes this book a riveting read and ultimately what made the HEA very, very satisfying. I won a signed copy of this book from Malia (@romanceschmomance) and it took me a while to get into. Heck, […]

A Classic Emotional Romance! Kiss an Angel by Susan Elizabeth Phillips [Audiobook Review]

A Classic Emotional Romance! Kiss an Angel by Susan Elizabeth Phillips [Audiobook Review]

  When I said I had never read SEP before, people gasp. Then they go ahead and recommend theย Chicago Stars series or they tell meย I HAVE to read Kiss an Angel. Naturally, I avoided the book like the plague! In fact, I received a copy of this book in mass market paperback in my last Avon Addicts box a few years ago. Now I know why this book is HIGHLY recommended. I mean, PEOPLE, if you HAVEN’T readย Kiss an Angel, the time to read it isย NOW. Kiss an Angel is probably one of the most memorable books I’ve ever read […]

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

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

  As someone who hasnโ€™t seen Magic Mike at all, I wasnโ€™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 toย her. Not that Fallon wasnโ€™t good, but his insecurities touched my cynical heart as well. One of the best scenes will probably be […]

What an Explosive Debut! The City of Brass by S.A. Chakraborty [Audiobook Review]

What an Explosive Debut! The City of Brass by S.A. Chakraborty [Audiobook 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.   When Avon asked if anyone would be interested in reviewing The Kingdom of Copper, I decided to request it know that it was book 2. I was planning to get book 1 myself until I received m book mail and discovered that they included all two books. Let me tell you, requesting this book was NOT a mistake! The City of Brass was not something that I expected but it really surprised […]

This Book Broke Me! More Than Words by Mia Sheridan [Audiobook Review]

This Book Broke Me! More Than Words by Mia Sheridan [Audiobook 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.   It’s been a while since I ugly cried and this book tore me to shreds!ย More than Wordsย broke me just in the prologue! I tell you, I have not cried this much since a few months ago! I have found an author whose backlist will be read by me! Full disclosure, I received an ARC for this book last year but I wasn’t in the right mood to read it. This year, I […]
