A Unique Paranormal World! War of Hearts by S. Young [ALC Review]

A Unique Paranormal World! War of Hearts by S. Young [ALC Review]

I received this audiobook for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the audiobook or the content of my review. I had heard a lot of amazing things about War of Hearts by S. Young (Samantha Young) but I did not expect this book to blow me away! I don’t read a lot of paranormal romance books, and I also didn’t read a lot of detailed reviews of the book. So, when I saw that this was offered as an ALC, I decided to request it and I do not regret it one bit! War of Hearts is […]

A Riveting Bully Romance | Heartless Hero by Mary Catherine Gebhard [ARC Review]

A Riveting Bully Romance | Heartless Hero by Mary Catherine Gebhard [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. This month is probably the month of bullies and dark romance reads for me. Seriously. I haven’t really read books like this and I am a little bit disturbed but fascinated because I just can’t stop reading them! Heartless Hero is really a second-chance bully romance with touches of revenge. Theo is definitely one broken anti-hero that I ended up rooting for. Not only are his motivations for vengeance a little bit harsh and […]

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 […]

Seriously Addictive & Binge Worthy! Slave to Sensation by Nalini Singh [Audiobook Review]

Seriously Addictive & Binge Worthy! Slave to Sensation by Nalini Singh [Audiobook Review]

This book deserves all the stars!! I ABSOLUTELY LOVE this world! Also, QUEEN NALINI SINGH is definitely appropriate! I have been dragging my feet on starting this series – because HELLO, there are already 18 books in the series! And this does not include the novellas! Ack! I’ve read Angel’s Blood and also gave it 5 stars, but it seriously can’t hold a candle on how amazing Slave to Sensation is! But I am seriously kicking myself because I didn’t start reading this book when it first came out! I mean, I know the reason why – I was mostly […]

Enemies to Lovers + Food! The Opposite of You by Rachel Higginson [Book Review]

Enemies to Lovers + Food! The Opposite of You by Rachel Higginson [Book Review]

  I got The Opposite of You for free when it was on sale and I read it on a whim. WOW! I was delightfully surprised! The Opposite of You has a heroine who is starting her own food truck parked across a 5-star restaurant featuring a Michelin starred chef! So, YES there is food, LOTS OF FOOD! I live in Los Angeles and food trucks are very popular here and I have tried a bunch of them, so reading about them is the cherry on top! When I started reading The Opposite of You, I really didn’t know what to expect. But I just […]

I am addicted to this world! Fated by Rebecca Zanetti [Book Review]

I am addicted to this world! Fated by Rebecca Zanetti [Book Review]

  WOW, I can’t believe the awesomeness of Fated by Rebecca Zanetti! Thank you so much to Teresa @reads_romance and Romance Reader for recommending this series! I easily get overwhelmed by really long series, but I just had to dive in! I will try to read the books in order! I’m not really into paranormal and to be honest, it’s a hard genre for me to get into. Well, I got hooked by this series and I just can’t wait to continue reading the series! Fated really captured my attention from page 1. That opening scene alone was a little bit scary […]

Emotionally Heart Wrenching and Current | Grip Series by Kennedy Ryan [Series Review]

Emotionally Heart Wrenching and Current | Grip Series by Kennedy Ryan [Series Review]

I’ve had Flow and Grip on my Kindle since September of last year and I can’t believe I waited till now to read it! I binged this trilogy last month and I still can’t get over it! In fact, I went ahead and read the Soul series and I still can’t get enough! First, let me just say that Kennedy Ryan’s writing is so riveting! The way she chooses the words captured me from page 1! And as I’ve said it before, I am not a fan of slow burn romances or novellas, but Kennedy Ryan has changed me in […]
