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. [book-info] 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 […]

It was a bit…. boring. Chasing Cassandra by Lisa Kleypas [Audiobook Review]

It was a bit…. boring. Chasing Cassandra by Lisa Kleypas [Audiobook Review]

[book-info] 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 […]

The Friendship is the best thing in this book! Love on Lexington Avenue by Lauren Layne [ARC Review]

The Friendship is the best thing in this book! Love on Lexington Avenue by Lauren Layne [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. [book-info] Love on Lexington Lane was a book that I was highly anticipating this year, but it really turned into a disappointing read. To be honest, I wasn’t expecting this book to be Chick Lit. Now, don’t get me wrong, I am okay with Chick Lit, it’s just not my cup of tea. At all. I guess this may be why I couldn’t get into Passion on Park Avenue. I really love the premise for Love on Lexington […]

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

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

[book-info]   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, […]

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

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

[book-info]   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 […]

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. [book-info] 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 […]

Annoying, Immature Heroine! Unchained by J. Lynn [ARC Review]

Annoying, Immature Heroine! Unchained by J. Lynn [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. [book-info] 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 […]
