A Bittersweet End to a Series | When the Marquess Falls by Lorraine Heath Book Review

A Bittersweet End to a Series | When the Marquess Falls by Lorraine Heath Book Review

I received this book for free from the Publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.   I was a little surprised that I enjoyed When the Marquess Falls because the whole Hellions of Havisham series wasn’t up to par with the other series that Lorraine Heath has written. In fact, I hated The Earl Takes All because the heroine COULD NOT tell the difference between her husband and his twin who was masquerading as HIM! HONESTLY! When the Marquess Falls is George, the Mad Marques’ HEA […]

And his carefully ordered life teeter on the verge of change. “You’ll have to go to London to sort my goddaughter out.” She embellished her point by squeezing her tiny dog Truffles, who […]

OMG THE FEELS! Devil in Spring by Lisa Kleypas Audiobook Review

OMG THE FEELS! Devil in Spring by Lisa Kleypas Audiobook Review

  Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. Devil in Spring was absolutely DELIGHTFUL! Actually, I was a little bit worried about this book because although Pandora was very interesting in Cold-Hearted Rake and Marrying Winterborne, she tended to become very irritating, which really frustrated me. A LOT. Finding out who the hero for this book was, BLEW me away! I actually re-read Devil in Winter last year because I was so excited! As many know, Sebastian St. Vincent is one of Lisa Kleypas’ favorite and beloved heroes. I can see why. But I don’t agree. […]

Insta-love at its WORST! The Fairest of Them All by Cathy Maxwell Audiobook Review

Insta-love at its WORST! The Fairest of Them All by Cathy Maxwell Audiobook Review

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. I honestly don’t know where to start reviewing The Fairest of Them All. To say that I was disappointed is an understatement. I am INFURIATED. Okay, I’d like to explain why my feelings are this… harsh. I absolutely HATE insta-love! Sure, there are books that can do this well, but this was NOT it! There is just too much insta-love in this book that I cannot… ARRGHH!! Sigh. Another reason why I am extremely disappointed is because The Fairest of Them All made my books pubbed in 2016 […]

I also thought the timeline to be off. They met 1 year […]

Flipping Pages: Fair is the Rose by Meagan McKinney Audiobook Review

Flipping Pages: Fair is the Rose by Meagan McKinney Audiobook Review

Reviews of Books Written Before Year 2000. Lions and Lace and Fair is the Rose became available to borrow from the library at the same time, so it was a perfect for binge reading! Luckily, the narrator Lisa Flanagan was very good! Although I didn’t LOVE Fair is the Rose as much as I loved Lions and Lace, it is still one of my most memorable reads. I am not a fan of Western Historical Romance, but there was a time where I read a bunch of them. Fair is the Rose picks up about 3 years after the events of Lions and Lace and tells is […]

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. Where do I start with Mogul? This book was honestly one of my most anticipated reads for 2017, especially after I read Baron and absolutely LOVED it. In fact, I rated Baron 5 hearts, it was that good. Unfortunately, Mogul didn’t live up to my expectations. As much as I want to love it, I just couldn’t. I think […]
