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 […]

Steamy and Scandalous! The Forbidden Man by Karina Halle [ALC Review]

Steamy and Scandalous! The Forbidden Man by Karina Halle [ALC Review]

I received this audiobook for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. The Forbidden Man is the very first Karina Halle book that I read and it won’t be my last. In fact, I binged 2 more books by her! I was really surprised by The Forbidden Man because this book actually uses real sports teams! I don’t think I’ve read any book that used IRL sports teams. If you don’t know, I am not sporty but Pierre is a soccer (football) fan and so I DO […]

Listening to the Audio was Amazing! The Worst Best Man by Mia Sosa [Audiobook Review]

Listening to the Audio was Amazing! The Worst Best Man by Mia Sosa [Audiobook Review]

I received an ebook for free in exchange for an honest review, but opted to listen to the audiobook which I borrowed from the library. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. I did not know what to expect when I started listening to The Worst Best Man. This is my first Mia Sosa book and this will definitely NOT be my last! My initial reaction after finishing the audiobook was this emoji review that I posted on Goodreads: 🤪🤔🤐🚗🚪🌷🍛🥘🔥🤭😑😢😭😭😍🥰🥰🥰🥰🤣. As you can see, I was so full of emotions and it is […]

This was a riveting listen! Where the Blame Lies by Mia Sheridan [Audiobook Review]

This was a riveting listen! Where the Blame Lies by Mia Sheridan [Audiobook Review]

I was not ready when I decided to listen to Where the Blame Lies. This book is riveting and scary and had me at the seat of my pants! I am just amazed at what an amazing and strong character Josie is! Before I start my review, I just want to let everyone know that this book has serious trigger warnings! While some of the scenes during Josie’s captivity, there are parts of her captivity that are so vivid and scary! Where the Blame Lies is a book like no other I’ve read before. I usually avoid triggering books like this, […]

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 […]

A Really Slow Burn Romance | We Are Us by Tara Leigh [ARC Review]

A Really Slow Burn Romance | We Are Us by Tara Leigh [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. We are Us is my first DNF of this year. I am legit DNFing at 90%!!!! I was very interested in the plot of We are Us. In fact, I was bawling through the flashback – especially during the time when Poppy and Gavin met in the woods at thirteen and their friendship grew and ultimately changed to love. That flashback really broke me. Unfortunately, the flashback took more than half of the […]

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 […]
