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 […]

Smart and Fun! Outmatched by Kristen Callihan & Samantha Young [ARC Review]

Smart and Fun! Outmatched by Kristen Callihan & Samantha Young [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. I can’t even begin to explain how adorable this romance is! Kristen Callihan and Samantha Young are an awesome writing duo! I have read books written by both authors individually and I enjoyed their books. It didn’t come as a surprise that I love Outmatched! Outmatched is a quirky and emotional contemporary romance, featuring an adorable heroine and a softie hero! Parker and Rhys are adorable together! I love how both authors spun the enemies […]

A Dramatic, Less Gritty MC Romance | Gypsy King by Devney Perry [ARC Review]

A Dramatic, Less Gritty MC Romance | Gypsy King by Devney Perry [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. Gypsy King is my second Devney Perry book and it did not disappoint! Devney Perry has a way with writing that captivates you from page 1! Based on the book I read, I was really curious how she would write an MC romance because her writing style isn’t that gritty as what you would expect an MC romance to feel like. I have to say that her style works well with how she […]

A Spectacular Second-Chance Romance! The Kingmaker by Kennedy Ryan [ARC Review]

A Spectacular Second-Chance Romance! The Kingmaker by Kennedy Ryan [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.   The Kingmaker by Kennedy Ryan is one book that I did not expect. Wow, was I surprised! The Kingmaker is a spectacular second-chance romance where our hero and heroine had a chance meeting for a few hours during a protest. I was also not expecting this book to be very political – but it is and I love it so much! The Kingmaker checked all the boxes for me. I love second-chance romance […]

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 […]

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 […]
