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 […]

Slow Burn is Not for Me | Truth or Beard by Penny Reid [Audiobook Review]

Slow Burn is Not for Me | Truth or Beard by Penny Reid [Audiobook Review]

Penny Reid’s books have been highly recommended to me from romance readers that I trust. Unfortunately, this may be one of those authors that I just can’t get into. I don’t know what to think of this book? Maybe Penny Reid’s writing is just not for me. I mean, it’s written well, but I don’t exactly love the romance in Truth or Beard. And as much as I love punny titles, this could not make up my underwhelming reaction to this book. This may be an unpopular opinion to all the fans of this series. This is my fourth Penny Reid book and […]

The Friendship is the best thing in this book! Love on Lexington Avenue by Lauren Layne [ARC Review]

The Friendship is the best thing in this book! Love on Lexington Avenue by Lauren Layne [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 on Lexington Lane was a book that I was highly anticipating this year, but it really turned into a disappointing read. To be honest, I wasn’t expecting this book to be Chick Lit. Now, don’t get me wrong, I am okay with Chick Lit, it’s just not my cup of tea. At all. I guess this may be why I couldn’t get into Passion on Park Avenue. I really love the premise for Love on Lexington Avenue. This […]

It was Boring. Lies by Kylie Scott [Book Review]

It was Boring. Lies by Kylie Scott [Book Review]

  One of my highly anticipated releases this month is Lies by Kylie Scott. I loved the premise and when I started reading it and discovered the names of the main characters Elizabeth and Thom – I was stoked! I mean, I LOVED that the hero is a spy and has been hiding his identity from this fiance and the heroine was planning to leave him because he sucked! I am a fan of the Blacklist and two of the characters there are Elizabeth and Tom, who didn’t really have an HEA on that show. When I was reading Lies, I […]

It had an awesome premise! Born to Kill by Erin Trejo [DNF Review]

It had an awesome premise! Born to Kill by Erin Trejo [DNF Review]

My thoughts are probably more on the unpopular side, but I was frustrated by this book. Born to Kill is my first Erin Trejo book and it really put me off. First, I liked the premise – dark romance, unrequited romance, Mafia. I was seriously excited to start reading this book. Unfortunately, I made it to 50%ish before I had to mark it as a DNF. Before I delve into the negatives, I have to say that I liked the danger surrounding the whole story. I liked how Trejo set up the atmosphere of the book with the first few […]

The Epilogue Saved this Book! The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren [Audiobook Review]

The Epilogue Saved this Book! The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren [Audiobook Review]

  I’ve seen The Unhoneymooners on Bookstagram a lot and I finally got the chance to listen to the audiobook! Unfortunately, I was a little disappointed until I listened to the epilogue! Unfortunately, the epilogue can’t save the book for me. Yes, I have mixed feelings with this book! The Unhoneymooners is an enemies-to-lovers romance. And while that is one of my favorite tropes and I liked Olive and Ethan’s banter and arguments, and yes, I liked the first part of the book. I was very disappointed by the hero, Ethan. I felt that he was spineless and I couldn’t […]
