I Wanted More Heat! Losing It & Keeping Her by Cora Carmack [Audiobook Review]

I Wanted More Heat! Losing It & Keeping Her by Cora Carmack [Audiobook Review]

This is the first book that I read written by Cora Carmack and I enjoyed it! This is another taboo romance because the hero is her professor but he is also not that much older than the heroine. The good thing about this romance is that they didn’t really “hookup” until AFTER the heroine’s graduation! Losing It was a perfect New Adult listen for me during the holidays because it was pretty short and sweet. Although, I wanted there to be more heat and sexy times! So yeah, this book felt too sweet for the New Adult romances that I had been […]

The Underbelly of London | Beyond Scandal and Desire by Lorraine Heath [ARC Review]

I received this book for free from the Publisher via Edelweiss 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.   Lorraine Heath is one of my favorite historical romance authors (as evidenced by her being my most read author in 2017) and she did not disappoint! Beyond Scandal and Desire is the first book in her newest series Sins for All Seasons and what an amazing story it is! The Sins for All Seasons series is about six illegitimate babies who […]

Opposites Attract | Rule by Jay Crownover [Audiobook Review]

Opposites Attract | Rule by Jay Crownover [Audiobook Review]

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review.   Rule was another surprising read in 2017 when I was on a New Adult kick. I had read Jay Crownover before when I read her Welcome to the Point series. Rule is a little bit different than her Welcome to the Point series because it is a New Adult romance – but it was still dark and emotional. Rule is a typical hate-to-love-girl-in-love-with-best-friend’s-brother trope but I liked the new spin Jay Crownover injected into it. In Love with Best Friend’s Brother This is one of my […]

Heartbreaking and Real | Wait for You, Trust in Me by Jennifer L. Armentrout [Audiobook Review]

Heartbreaking and Real | Wait for You, Trust in Me by Jennifer L. Armentrout [Audiobook Review]

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. I don’t really know what made me pick-up wait for you by Jennifer L. Armentrout (writing as J. Lynn). To be honest, I received four of the books in this series a couple of years ago but since this wasn’t a genre that interested me, I didn’t bother reading it. Let’s just say that I am kicking myself because I didn’t read these books. I don’t even KNOW WHY I picked it up and whatever fairy impelled me to pick it up, THANK YOU SO MUCH […]

Oh, the Feels! An Offer from a Gentleman by Julia Quinn [Audiobook Review]

Oh, the Feels! An Offer from a Gentleman by Julia Quinn [Audiobook Review]

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. I normally don’t like Cinderella retellings (except for Cinder by Marissa Meyer) but An Offer from a Gentleman snuck into my heart early in the book. In fact, I was brought to tears! This is usually my measure for loving a book. I mean, if a book makes me cry, it is up there on my favorite list! Initially, I had reservations about it since we don’t really know a lot about Benedict Bridgerton other than him being the second son. We also don’t see much […]

What a Surprising Christmas Romance! Crashed Out by Tessa Bailey [Book Review]

What a Surprising Christmas Romance! Crashed Out by Tessa Bailey [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. Wow, just WOW! Crashed Out turned out to be such a surprise! This is the fourth Tessa Bailey book that I read and it surprised me – it was so good! I am a sucker for unrequited romance and this one was perfect! Also, the heroine, Jasmine, is also older than the hero, Sarge. Oh, and did I mention that she used to babysit him? I know, I know, the […]
