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 the Chicago Stars series or they tell me 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 read Kiss an Angel, the time to read it is NOW. Kiss an Angel is probably one of the most memorable books I’ve ever read […]

I wanted more girl power! Mistress of the Seas by Ruth Langan [Reread Review]

I wanted more girl power! Mistress of the Seas by Ruth Langan [Reread Review]

Mistress of the Seas by Ruth Langan is a reread for me. And what an emotional reread it was! It has been years since I read this book and I remember why I loved it so much! In fact, I went out of my way to buy a copy on Amazon because my own copy is back in my hometown gathering dust! Mistress of the Seas was the perfect book to read to get out of the current reading slump I was in. This book is about a female pirate and a Scottish prisoner of war who got sold into […]

Scandalous, Funny & Oh, So Sweet! Getaway Girl by Tessa Bailey [Book Review]

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. It took me a while to finally read my copy of Getaway Girl and I am kicking myself for it! Getaway Girl is full of Tessa Bailey’s signature wit, banter, sexiness, and dirty-talking heroes! In this case, the heroine has the devilish streak. Addison returns home to Charleston to settle her grandmother’s property and business. Before she leaves, she attends her cousin’s wedding – where her cousin doesn’t show up and she ends up helping the almost groom escape! Who would have thought that this escape […]

Tough Love | Recovered by Jay Crownover [Book Review]

Tough Love | Recovered by Jay Crownover [Book Review]

  Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review.   “Some souls were never meant to be saved. They might end up on the right path, but without fail, they will veer off. It’s all they know how to do. No matter how badly they might be hurting other people, they still lose their way. Honestly, the hurt they cause will never compare to how much hurt they inflict upon themselves.” -Cable, Recovered   There are a number of reasons why I picked up Recovered by Jay Crownover but I don’t know why it […]

Music & Romance | Roomies by Christina Lauren [Audiobook Review]

Music & Romance | Roomies by Christina Lauren [Audiobook Review]

  Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. I wasn’t expecting much from Roomies. To be honest, based on the first couple of chapters that I read last year, it didn’t feel like the usual Christina Lauren book that I expected. Fast-forward to last month and I was broken! I picked up the audiobook last month and I was able to get through the first few chapters! Before I knew it, I was hooked, even though Roomies read like women’s fiction than a contemporary romance. Not that there is anything wrong with women’s fiction, it’s just […]

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 […]

Something in Between by Melissa de la Cruz | Audiobook Review

Something in Between by Melissa de la Cruz | Audiobook Review

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. I honestly don’t know how to review this book. When I finished listening to the audiobook, I was hit with homesickness. If you don’t know already, I am an immigrant (now a US citizen) and I am Filipino, so this book really hit home for me. Coincidentally, my turn for the library cue came a few days before the US Presidential Election, which I thought was very appropriate. I had to read this. In fact, I finished listening to the audiobook on election day. I admit to […]
