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 […]

I was a bit disappointed. The Happy Ever After Playlist by Abby Jimenez [ALC Review]

I received this book & audiobook for free in exchange for an honest review. I decided to listen to the audiobook instead. This review is for the audiobook. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. One of my most anticipated books of 2020 is The Happy Ever After Playlist. After reading The Friend Zone, I was already looking forward to Sloan getting her HEA! The Happy Ever After Playlist starts a couple of years after Sloan’s fiancé passed away (this was a plot point in The Friend Zone) and we really get a […]

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 […]

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 Fantastic Ending to an Already Amazing Series! The One For You by Roni Loren [ARC Review]

A Fantastic Ending to an Already Amazing Series! The One For You by Roni Loren [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. It is no secret that I love second-chance romance and The One For You ticked all the right boxes for me. Not only that, but this book is also an unrequited romance! And it’s the hero that’s been crushing on our gal for since they were kids! I’ve also been waiting for Kincaid’s HEA since I read The Ones Who Got Away because she was the brains of their little group and basically rounded up all […]

There was no chemistry at all! Desperate Measures by Katee Robert [Book Review]

There was no chemistry at all! Desperate Measures by Katee Robert [Book Review]

I liked the premise of Desperate Measures. Unfortunately, I felt that there was no chemistry between Jasmine and Jafar! I’ve also watched the Disney version of Aladdin multiple times and I just can’t get the image of the animated Jafar out of my head, so thinking about him as the hero was just eeeew! Desperate Measures is a twisted fantasy erotic romance retelling that really adds a new twist to the fairy tale retellings that have been so popular. Frankly, I do love a good twist in fairy tale retellings but I guess I’m just not the audience for this specific […]

I wanted more groveling. Love Her or Lose Her by Tessa Bailey [ARC Review]

I wanted more groveling. Love Her or Lose Her by Tessa Bailey [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. Love Her or Lose Her is one of my highly anticipated books of 2020 and I am here to report that it did not live up to my hype – for me, at least. I really, really, really wanted to love Love Her or Lose Her, unfortunately, I was really disappointed in Rosie and Dominic’s second chance romance. In Fix Her Up, the first book in the series, we are introduced to Rosie and teased with […]
