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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Insta-Love at it’s Worst! Mouth to Mouth by Tessa Bailey [Book Review]

Insta-Love at it’s Worst! Mouth to Mouth by Tessa Bailey [Book Review]

  Mouth to Mouth surprisingly dropped without any notice last year and I was shocked! I did not expect this book at all and I hurriedly purchased it when it came out. Man, was I thoroughly disappointed! I have been reading a lot of Tessa Bailey books for a while and I have enjoyed the majority of the books I read by her, so I had high hopes of the book going in. A few of my romance bookstagram friends who received an ARC for the book were singing their praises for this book, so yeah, I was definitely going […]

Enemies to Lovers with a dash of the Forbidden! Hot Asset by Lauren Layne [Book Review]

Enemies to Lovers with a dash of the Forbidden! Hot Asset by Lauren Layne [Book Review]

  Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review.   Hot Asset is my first Lauren Layne book and I won’t be my last! I actually read the second book Hard Sell already and it was also as good! I am such a fan of the forbidden romance trope and the thought of a Wall Street Investor and an SEC investigator would be an awesome pair? And would this even be possible?! One of my guilty pleasures is watching the docu-series on MSNBC American Greed so I’m pretty familiar with how this thing goes. […]

They Finally Got their HEA! Respect by Jay Crownover [Book Review]

They Finally Got their HEA! Respect by Jay Crownover [Book Review]

  Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review.   Finally, we get Booker and Karsen’s HEA! Respect is one of my most anticipated releases this year and it did not disappoint! I have been so on-board with Karsen and Booker since I read them in Better When He’s Bold and I was so happy that they got their own book. I am a sucker for bad boys and forbidden romance and Respect checked all my boxes! The first two chapters had me bawling because I totally understood that Booker’s hands were tied. I […]

Angsty & Tough! Breaking the Rules by Katie McGarry [Book Review]

Angsty & Tough! Breaking the Rules by Katie McGarry [Book Review]

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review.   I had a hard time finishing Breaking the Rules. In fact, I was contemplating on DNFing the thing, but I hit a chapter where the story captivated me. See, I’m not a fan of YA contemporary romance since they’re just too young for me (I know it’s a YA book) but Pushing the Limits was so good, I decided to read Echo and Noah story. This is the in-between story of what happened after they finished high school and before the events of the second […]
