She Deserved to Get Her Dream & Her Man! Secret Desires of a Gentleman by Laura Lee Guhrke [Reread Review]

She Deserved to Get Her Dream & Her Man! Secret Desires of a Gentleman by Laura Lee Guhrke [Reread Review]

Secret Desires of a Gentleman is one of my favorite historical romance books ever! In fact, I’ve reread this book multiple times over the years pre-Goodreads! The last time I reread this book as marked on GR was in 2016 – 4 years ago. Which is why I am writing this review now. I am taking off one star to my rating. I honestly don’t do this often, but I have been known to knock down stars after a reread. But I’d like to explain my 4-star rating and why I wish this book should have had an epilogue. As my […]

What an Amazing Read! Forbidden by Beverly Jenkins [Audiobook Review]

What an Amazing Read! Forbidden by Beverly Jenkins [Audiobook Review]

Forbidden is my very first Beverly Jenkins novel and it won’t be my last! I have not been reading a lot of historical romance novels in the last couple of years so I am hoping this will restart my love for historicals! I did not know what to expect when I started reading Forbidden. I literally went to this book blind and I love discovering all the surprises. What really stood out to me is Eddy! She is an amazing heroine and basically a Boss! She did everything she could to achieve her dreams and also did not compromise her dreams for […]

Listening to the Audio was Amazing! The Worst Best Man by Mia Sosa [Audiobook Review]

Listening to the Audio was Amazing! The Worst Best Man by Mia Sosa [Audiobook Review]

I received an ebook for free in exchange for an honest review, but opted to listen to the audiobook which I borrowed from the library. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. I did not know what to expect when I started listening to The Worst Best Man. This is my first Mia Sosa book and this will definitely NOT be my last! My initial reaction after finishing the audiobook was this emoji review that I posted on Goodreads: 🤪🤔🤐🚗🚪🌷🍛🥘🔥🤭😑😢😭😭😍🥰🥰🥰🥰🤣. As you can see, I was so full of emotions and it is […]

It was a bit…. boring. Chasing Cassandra by Lisa Kleypas [Audiobook Review]

It was a bit…. boring. Chasing Cassandra by Lisa Kleypas [Audiobook Review]

We finally have the last Ravenels book and one of my highly anticipated books of 2020! Unfortunately, Chasing Cassandra was a bit of a disappointment for me. But at 3.5 stars, it was still an enjoyable book. Let me explain. I have been intrigued by Tom Severin since he first appeared in Cold-Hearted Rake. As you now already know, I am a fan of self-made men and Lisa Kleypas writes the best ones! Derek Craven, John McKenna, and Simon Hunt, anyone? But I digress. Chasing Cassandra was sweet and fun and quirky (not too quirky, like Pandora’s book) and it […]

I wanted more groveling. Love Her or Lose Her by Tessa Bailey [ARC Review]

I wanted more groveling. Love Her or Lose Her by Tessa Bailey [ARC 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. Love Her or Lose Her is one of my highly anticipated books of 2020 and I am here to report that it did not live up to my hype – for me, at least. I really, really, really wanted to love Love Her or Lose Her, unfortunately, I was really disappointed in Rosie and Dominic’s second chance romance. In Fix Her Up, the first book in the series, we are introduced to Rosie and teased with […]

A Heroine in Disguise! Sins of a Wicked Duke by Sophie Jordan [Book Review]

A Heroine in Disguise! Sins of a Wicked Duke by Sophie Jordan [Book Review]

  I seriously had deja vu when I was reading Sins of a Wicked Duke! This is a Sophie Jordan backlist book and I swear I have read it before! Well, I think I read this years ago because I couldn’t exactly remember the plot, but while I was reading it, I felt that I read it before! I really love the premise – a spinster who is not of the aristocracy was fired from another job because she refused the advances of her employers’ son only to meet a rake who propositions her for the same thing! She doesn’t bite but […]

Oh, the banter! Say No to the Duke by Eloisa James [ARC Review + Giveaway]

Oh, the banter! Say No to the Duke by Eloisa James [ARC Review + Giveaway]

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.   Well, well, well! This was a surprise! Say No to the Duke really made me grin and of course, the feels! This is the first book that I read in The Wildes of Lidow Castle series because I had a hard time getting into the first book, Wilde in Love. Anyway, I just jumped into the middle of the series and I WILL finally be reading the first three books! As I’ve said, I am a […]
