What a Wallflower Wants by Maya Rodale | Book Review + Giveaway

What a Wallflower Wants by Maya Rodale | Book Review + Giveaway

MY THOUGHTS Warning: This review may contain spoilers What a Wallflower Wants by Maya Rodale is the third book in her Bad Boys and Wallflowers series and features Prudence, the third lady in the trio of best friends. I’m a little bit torn by this book.  And although I liked the writing and the style, I found it hard to relate and like Prudence.  I also didn’t like the abduction scene and how it came about.  I just felt that it was too… uhmm frivolous or something. I really felt for Prudence, though since she was sexually assaulted by someone […]

Tease by Sophie Jordan | Book Review

Tease by Sophie Jordan | Book Review

My Thoughts Tease by Sophie Jordan is the second book in The Ivy Chronicles series (Foreplay #1, Wild #3) and is my favorite of the three.  The heroine in this book is Emerson, the tease/flirt/party girl who acts like she doesn’t have a care in the world.  However, she hides a deep dark secret that she has kept from her closest friends. While at a biker bar, Emerson gets uber drunk and starts a brawl causing her so-called friends to abandon her.  She gets rescued by our hero, Shaw who also has a chip on his shoulder.  He is an […]

Foreplay by Sophie Jordan [Book Review]

Foreplay by Sophie Jordan [Book Review]

My Thoughts I was really surprised that I enjoyed Wild (Ivy Chronicles #3) by Sophie Jordan.  So much so that I read the whole series!  I really loved the story of the three best friends: Pepper, Emerson, and Georgia! Foreplay focuses on Pepper’s love story to bartender/owner Reece.  When shy Pepper finds out that the love of her life, her best friend’s brother breaks up with his serious girlfriend, she sees it as a sign!  She has been in love with Hunter since she was in high school and now wants him all to herself.  But wait!  She has no experience in […]

Finding Miss McFarland by Vivienne Lorret | Book Review + Giveaway

Finding Miss McFarland by Vivienne Lorret | Book Review + Giveaway

My Thoughts I really enjoyed Finding Miss McFarland so much!  The third book in Vivienne Lorret’s Wallflower Wedding series, Finding Miss McFarland is an awesome read. Delaney, the heroine, is a very interesting character.  Coupled with her tendency to be clumsy, especially when she is around Griffin Croft.  Unfortunately for her, their first meeting turns out to be one of the most talked about incidents in the ton which.  This led her to go out of her way to avoid Griffin, to the point of sending someone to stalk him (just so she can avoid him).  But as fates would […]

A Good Debutante’s Guide to Ruin by Sophie Jordan | Book Review

A Good Debutante’s Guide to Ruin by Sophie Jordan | Book Review

My Thoughts A Good Debutante’s Guide to Ruin is the first book in the new series The Debutante Files by Sophie Jordan and it does not disappoint!  It is heartwarming and adorable at the same time.  A little less on the spicy side but still very entertaining. I really love Rosalie and Declan’s story.  Although there aren’t that many interactions between the two, they still sizzle whenever they are in a scene together.  Because of Declan’s grudge with Rosalie’s mother, he lumped her in the same ilk as she and had a hard time accepting her as a different person.  Rosalie, on […]

Wed at Leisure by Sabrina Darby | Book Review

Wed at Leisure by Sabrina Darby | Book Review

My Thoughts Wed at Leisure is the second book in the Taming series by Sabrina Darby and tells the story of Kate Mansfield, the mean sister in Woo’d in Haste. This time, we will find the true reason why Kate was mean to her sister Bianca. We also see glimpses of Kate’s past with Peter Colburn, the Duke of Orland, their neighbor. Although this book is way better than Woo’d in Haste, it still did not reach the mark for me. There was nothing really special about this story and nothing that made me like Kate at all. So, her […]

A Night to Surrender by Tessa Dare | Audiobook Review

A Night to Surrender by Tessa Dare | Audiobook Review

My Thoughts A Night to Surrender is the second book that I read from Tessa Dare.  I read Any Duchess Will Do (the 4th book in the series) first because I love to start reading a series out of order (insert sarcasm here).  This is also the first audiobook that I have listened to since last year’s audiobook debacle.  Why go back to audiobooks, you ask?  Well, I saw a Groupon for a free 2-month audiobook trial and well, tried it.  This is the first “purchase” I have with the system. A Night to Surrender is the first book in […]
