An Awesome Sports Romance! King of the Court by Melanie Munton [ARC Review]

An Awesome Sports Romance! King of the Court by Melanie Munton [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 was very surprised that I enjoyed King of Court because I am not sporty at all. I mean,  I know the mechanics of some of the games and I can watch Basketball, but romance? This was also the first book by Melanie Munton that I read and it won’t be my last! Well, King of Court is an amazing read! I also love that it featured a heroine who was going into sports medicine! Usually, […]

A Well Earned HEA! Be with Me by Jennifer L. Armentrout [Audiobook Review]

A Well Earned HEA! Be with Me by Jennifer L. Armentrout [Audiobook Review]

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. Remember that time when I was binge-reading Jennifer L. Armentrout? Well, this book really surprised me in a good way because of the twist in the end! I will not be revealing the twist because I actually loved the way it was revealed to Teresa because that was also the time that it was revealed to the reader. Although, I knew the twist by the second chapter. Yes, it was that glaring to me but maybe because it hit a little bit closer to home for […]

Seducing Her Brother’s Best Friend by Noelle Adams [Excerpt + Giveaway]

Seducing Her Brother’s Best Friend by Noelle Adams [Excerpt + Giveaway]

She narrowed her eyes even more and gave him a cool glare. “You might as well just admit it. I know exactly what happened.” He groaned softly. “All right. Fine. I couldn’t believe you’d be acting like… like that.” “Like what?” She was making this as hard as possible for him, and he couldn’t even blame her. “Like you… liked me.” It sounded ridiculous, immature, but he couldn’t think of any other way to put it. “And you really can’t believe that I do?” He wanted to be anywhere but here, put on the spot like this. He wanted to […]

I Wanted More Heat! Losing It & Keeping Her by Cora Carmack [Audiobook Review]

I Wanted More Heat! Losing It & Keeping Her by Cora Carmack [Audiobook Review]

This is the first book that I read written by Cora Carmack and I enjoyed it! This is another taboo romance because the hero is her professor but he is also not that much older than the heroine. The good thing about this romance is that they didn’t really “hookup” until AFTER the heroine’s graduation! Losing It was a perfect New Adult listen for me during the holidays because it was pretty short and sweet. Although, I wanted there to be more heat and sexy times! So yeah, this book felt too sweet for the New Adult romances that I had been […]

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.

The Sins for All Seasons series is about six illegitimate babies who […]

Opposites Attract | Rule by Jay Crownover [Audiobook Review]

Opposites Attract | Rule by Jay Crownover [Audiobook Review]

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review.   Rule was another surprising read in 2017 when I was on a New Adult kick. I had read Jay Crownover before when I read her Welcome to the Point series. Rule is a little bit different than her Welcome to the Point series because it is a New Adult romance – but it was still dark and emotional. Rule is a typical hate-to-love-girl-in-love-with-best-friend’s-brother trope but I liked the new spin Jay Crownover injected into it. In Love with Best Friend’s Brother This is one of my […]

Meh Reads [Skinny Reviews]

Meh Reads [Skinny Reviews]

This book came highly recommended by one of my favorite authors and you know what, the plot sounds AMAZING! The hero, Lachlain, who is a Lycan has been in prison for almost a hundred years when he scents his mate and chews off his foot to escape. The heroine is a half vampire, half Valkyrie. Vampires and Lycans are at war with each other. Amazing, right? WRONG! I was hugely disappointed. I had such high expectations and I ended up being let down. I liked Lachlain but I HATED Emmaline! Sure, the book started out really good but by the […]
