Steamy, Sporty, & LOL! Scoring Wilder by R.S. Grey [Audiobook Review]

Steamy, Sporty, & LOL! Scoring Wilder by R.S. Grey [Audiobook Review]

I’ve been looking for soccer themed romance books to read and a lot of romance readers recommended Scoring Wilder. This book was a fun and sexy sports romance read with a touch of the forbidden! If you don’t know already, Pierre watches Premier League Mornings (this is a top-level English football league system), he’s also watching the Philippine Team Azkals compete in the Asian Cup (our first year to qualify), so this theme is so on point! Anyway, what I do love about Scoring Wilder is Kinsley and Becca’s friendship! Man, these two were snarky and fun and basically, I […]

One Kick-ass Heroine! Phoenix Unbound by Grace Draven [Audiobook Review]

One Kick-ass Heroine! Phoenix Unbound by Grace Draven [Audiobook Review]

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review.   It’s been a while since I read fantasy romance and I was a little apprehensive going in to Phoenix Unbound and I was blown away! Phoenix Unbound is an awesome, thrilling and romantic fantasy and I can’t get enough of it! Phoenix Unbound is set in a fantasy world very similar to Rome where there are gladiator fights and female sacrifices with an evil empire taking over the world. Our heroine is Gilene, an ordinary woman with extraordinary fire powers. She is also able to […]

Hot Damn! Crossing the Line Series by Tessa Bailey [Audiobook Review]

Hot Damn! Crossing the Line Series by Tessa Bailey [Audiobook Review]

Hot damn, the Crossing the Line series was awesome overall! I actually binge-listened this series (not in order, mind you) and it was good. Overall, I gave this series 4/5 hearts, but each individual book has a rating range of 3-4 hearts. The Crossing the Line series has a 60-40 balance between suspense and romance, where romance gets the largest chunk of each of the books. This is exactly what I love! I do wish there was more action in the books, though. Also, I love the all the female heroes are unique in their own way, kick-ass and have baggage! It’s refreshing […]

There’s an adorable dog! Plus an alpha male and sexy times! Follow by Tessa Bailey [Audiobook Review]

There’s an adorable dog! Plus an alpha male and sexy times! Follow by Tessa Bailey [Audiobook Review]

  Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. If you have been stalking me on social media, you will know that Follow is the first book that started my Tessa Bailey binge in the last couple of months. Why? Because Tessa Bailey is AMAZING! Follow took me by surprise. I actually picked this book up when it was recommended in one of my book club groups and I immediately went to check the library if it was available. It was! And I didn’t regret my decision. What I love about Follow is that this features a heroine who is not […]

Who Would’ve Guessed that I would LOVE Paranormal Steampunk? The Falconer by Elizabeth May Audiobook Review

Who Would’ve Guessed that I would LOVE Paranormal Steampunk? The Falconer by Elizabeth May Audiobook Review

  Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. Well, well, well, well. Who would’ve thought that I would enjoy The Falconer so much? The fae, that’s who! *wink I believe this is the very first steampunk paranormal book that BLEW ME AWAY! Yes, it’s that AMAZING! Sure, I enjoyed The Infernal Devices series by Cassandra Clare but that series does not come CLOSE to the amazingness that is The Falconer! The Falconer checked all the boxes for me. Awesome female character? Check! Anti-heroish mysterious character? Check! Spunky, comedic character? Check! Minimal romance? Check! Set in the […]

All that’s Missing is an EPIC Space Battle! Defy the Stars by Claudia Gray Audiobook Review

  Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. I have no reason why I love reading about artificial intelligence and this book HAS one! Think YA Star Wars! Sure, the start was a little slow, but the story picked up speed as I got immersed into the world. Defy the Stars is about two unlikely heroes, an android named Abel and a teen soldier named Noemi. Noemi inadvertently rescues Abel from his prison where he has been stuck in for about thirty years. These two become allies as they try to stop an […]

When the Beast Remains A Beast For All Time   A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas    Book Review

When the Beast Remains A Beast For All Time A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas Book Review

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. I’m finally taking the time to review ACoTaR!  I mean, it’s been a few weeks since I finished reading this book and I’m still left speechless.  Because the LAST FEW CHAPTERS!  OMG! OMG?!  What do you mean OMG?! Well, just what I said.  The last few chapters of ACoTaR decimated me.  In a good way and a bad way.  ACoTaR was a pretty slow start for me.  I guess it was because SJ Maas was setting up the whole world. Oh?  So back up.  What is this […]

Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas | Audiobook Review

Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. I’m finally reviewing Heir of Fire, the third book in the Throne of Glass series and it is just as devastating as Crown of Midnight! There are revelations and DEATHS and creatures – monsters! And I’m also talking about HUMAN monsters. Devastating? AGAIN? Well, the first half of Heir of Fire started out a little slow for my taste. Mostly because we are now given a few info dumps (that aren’t really info dumps because SJMaas is just BRILLIANT!) about Wendelin and the Fae. We […]

Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas | Audiobook Review

Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. Finally!  I finished the Throne of Glass sequel a year after I read the first book, Throne of Glass!  And I regret NOT reading this (or listening) book ASAP!  Why am I so behind with this series?  I mean, Crown of Midnight DEVASTATED ME! Devastated you? See, something happens here TWICE that I can’t even…!  I mean, both really left me reeling and I can’t seem to move on from that.  And this happens a little bit past the halfway mark.  And then it gets […]
