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 […]

It was Boring. Lies by Kylie Scott [Book Review]

It was Boring. Lies by Kylie Scott [Book Review]

  One of my highly anticipated releases this month is Lies by Kylie Scott. I loved the premise and when I started reading it and discovered the names of the main characters Elizabeth and Thom – I was stoked! I mean, I LOVED that the hero is a spy and has been hiding his identity from this fiance and the heroine was planning to leave him because he sucked! I am a fan of the Blacklist and two of the characters there are Elizabeth and Tom, who didn’t really have an HEA on that show. When I was reading Lies, I […]

The Epilogue Saved this Book! The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren [Audiobook Review]

The Epilogue Saved this Book! The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren [Audiobook Review]

  I’ve seen The Unhoneymooners on Bookstagram a lot and I finally got the chance to listen to the audiobook! Unfortunately, I was a little disappointed until I listened to the epilogue! Unfortunately, the epilogue can’t save the book for me. Yes, I have mixed feelings with this book! The Unhoneymooners is an enemies-to-lovers romance. And while that is one of my favorite tropes and I liked Olive and Ethan’s banter and arguments, and yes, I liked the first part of the book. I was very disappointed by the hero, Ethan. I felt that he was spineless and I couldn’t […]

Insta-Love at it’s Worst! Mouth to Mouth by Tessa Bailey [Book Review]

Insta-Love at it’s Worst! Mouth to Mouth by Tessa Bailey [Book Review]

  Mouth to Mouth surprisingly dropped without any notice last year and I was shocked! I did not expect this book at all and I hurriedly purchased it when it came out. Man, was I thoroughly disappointed! I have been reading a lot of Tessa Bailey books for a while and I have enjoyed the majority of the books I read by her, so I had high hopes of the book going in. A few of my romance bookstagram friends who received an ARC for the book were singing their praises for this book, so yeah, I was definitely going […]

This Book Did Not Deliver. The Scoundrel in Her Bed by Lorraine Heath [ARC Review]

This Book Did Not Deliver. The Scoundrel in Her Bed by Lorraine Heath [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 read The Scoundrel in Her Bed in December and this was actually one of my most anticipated reads of last year. In fact, I was ecstatic that I received an eARC of this book because I love this series. Unfortunately, this wasn’t a favorite and it turned out into a dud. Don’t get me wrong, this book is written well. Not only that, Lorraine Heath is one of my favorite authors and I thoroughly […]

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. Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. I seriously wanted to love Unchained: Nephilim Rising so bad but honestly, this book is not up to par with Jennifer L. Armentrout’s other books! As you know, I was mad in love with Wait for You with all the amazing characters and a freaking AWESOME brave heroine, but Unchained: Nephilim Rising failed in all the things that matter! […]

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. Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review.   The Duke Buys His Bride was an interesting read for me, but it honestly didn’t blow me away.
