  Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts Welcome to Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts, an original weekly meme hosted here at (un)Conventional Bookworms.

Review ~ Soaring ~ Kristen Ashley

Review ~ Soaring ~ Kristen Ashley

Kristen Ashley never disappoints me and Soaring was no different. This story had it all…engaging characters (even the kids!), character growth, realistic family issues…and I loved it all. Highlights: Seasoned Characters I have to admit to loving the fact that KA writes seasoned characters. Both Amelia and Mickey are closing in on 50 and I like experiencing life with and through characters that have lived as much life as I have. Second Chance Romance If you haven’t yet figured out that I’m a sucker for this trope, you will. Yep, I’m a sucker for it. I adore that Amelia and Mickey have lived the lives they’ve lived, lost at love, but are growing, changing, and getting a second chance at […]

Up Close & (un)Conventional Bookish Babble #5 ~ Notes from the Nest

Up Close & (un)Conventional Bookish Babble #5 ~ Notes from the Nest

Up Close and (un)Conventional Bookish Babble Welcome to this week’s Up Close and (un)Conventional Bookish Babble. This is where we discuss whatever we feel like. It can be something about books or the bookish community, or it can be about something else entirely! I know that some of you may be past the empty nest stage and some of you may be nowhere close to it, but I wanted to share some things I’ve learned now that I’m ~4 months into empty nesting. Some of these things are serious and some are tongue-in-cheek…I hope you enjoy! Always, but always, go with the biggest meal plan for your teenage boy! Otherwise you’ll be sending more money to supplement his food budget. […]

Review: Heartland – Sarina Bowen

Review: Heartland – Sarina Bowen

Heartland pulled at my heartstrings – the friends to lovers trope, the slow burn, and the amazing chemistry made my heart both gooey and achy! Bowen always manages to write stories that bring out all the feels, and Heartland is no exception to that! Chastity was so innocent in many ways – as she had been free from the religious cult she was born into for only two years. In other ways, though, she was both strong and independent. Plus she was definitely motivated to make a good life for herself. The fact that she was in love with Dylan didn’t just complicate her life though, it also made it better in many ways. Heartland is a story with two […]

Review ~ A Lie for a Lie ~ Helena Hunting #COYER

Review ~ A Lie for a Lie ~ Helena Hunting #COYER

HHunting has become an author I can count on to deliver compelling characters and stories, and A Lie for a Lie didn’t disappoint. It was a wonderful feel-good, second chance romance. Lainey and RJ had me giggle-snorting over their meeting. Their romance quickly advanced to something much deeper and meaningful though. Sure they had chemistry that was palpable but in each other they found someone who accepted and appreciated them for who they were. If only RJ had been completely honest about himself from the beginning…before it was too late. Fate seemed determined about these two and they managed to find one another again. But when all secrets are revealed, will their second chance blossom or wither? I adored Lainey […]

Review: Code Name Heist – Sawyer Bennett

Review: Code Name Heist – Sawyer Bennett

Code Name Heist brought me the heist of the century, a hot second chance at love, suspense, and a troubled past. Code Name Heist is Saint’s story, but it’s also Sin’s story. There is also a parallel story arc that made my heart ache, and that brought tears to my eyes. Several characters from prior Jameson Force Security were present as well, which made me feel like I knew what I got myself into when I started reading. Saint used to be a professional thief of high-end art and jewels. After being in jail for two years he decided to go legit, only for his first solo job with Jameson to be going back to his thieving ways. Code Name […]

Before the new year started, there was an implosion regarding RWA – I won’t write about it here – apart from saying #IStandWithCourtneyMilan. However, that had me buying a LOT of books by marginalized authors (over 60!) and I won’t list them all here – […]
