Mogul by Joanna Shupe | Book Review

I received this book for free from the Publisher via Netgalley 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. Where do I start with Mogul? This book was honestly one of my most anticipated reads for 2017, especially after I read Baron and absolutely LOVED it. In fact, I rated Baron 5 hearts, it was that good. Unfortunately, Mogul didn’t live up to my expectations. As much as I want to love it, I just couldn’t. I think […]

Eleven Scandals to Start to Win a Duke’s Heart by Sarah MacLean | Book Review

Eleven Scandals to Start to Win a Duke’s Heart by Sarah MacLean | Book Review

My Thoughts “A little bit frustrating but ok” Eleven Scandals is the third book in the Love by Numbers series and it features Juliana Fiori and Simon Pearson, Duke of Leighton (we know him as the fiance of Lady Penelope in A Rogue by Any Other Name). In Eleven Scandals, we find out the real reason why Simon is averse to scandal. His younger sister is actually embroiled in a scandal herself and he plans to wed before the ton gets a whiff of it. Enter Lady Penelope Marbury (read my review for A Rogue by Any Other Name), who is […]

Ten Reasons to Stay by Sabrina Jeffries | Book Review

Ten Reasons to Stay by Sabrina Jeffries | Book Review

This novella was a very quick read for me. I was able to read it in a couple of hours or so. While this had a very promising plot, I thought the story was ok. Maybe because it is a novella and the author had to shorten the storyline – it just didn’t work for me. I like my romance to be well developed and not a lust at first sight type of thing. Normally, I shy away from novellas because of this reason. However, I love Sabrina Jeffries’ work so I decided to give this a shot. The story […]

Vanish by Sophie Jordan | Book Review

Vanish by Sophie Jordan | Book Review

MY THOUGHTS Disappointment does not begin to cover what I felt when I read the sequel to Firelight. I just could not get the love triangle between Jacinda, Will and Cassian.  I just wanted to hit Jacinda in the head. So much so that I just could not finish this book!  I didn’t even flip ahead to see how the whole book ended!  I just thought it was so ridiculous for Jacinda to be flirting with these two guys when she was already in love with Will!  Agh!  To top it all off, she goes and runs away to Will, […]
