New Release Review: Let Me Love You – Scarlett Cole

New Release Review: Let Me Love You – Scarlett Cole

Let Me Love You – or how best friends can lose touch before they can ever become lovers… Let Me Love You is Chaya and Ben’s story (<i>finally!! </i>) 🙂 These characters have been best friends forever, and everybody but them realized that there was more than friendship to their relationship. It’s not meant to be, though. Because Chaya knows she wants to stay true to her religion, and thus marry someone of the same faith. That can never be Ben. As Chaya meets a man who is her ideal man in all ways, she and Ben grow apart. It seems that nothing can bring them back together. Then, someone close to them both has a health problem, and somehow, […]

Review: Trouble With the Cursed – Kim Harrison

Review: Trouble With the Cursed – Kim Harrison

Trouble with the cursed is an adrenaline rush on crack! Rachel has so many things going on at the same time it’s almost impossible to keep up and breath at the same time! Oh my gosh! I don’t even know why I’ve waited a bit over a month to read this latest installment in the Hollows series, but somehow that happened. Rachel is still my best demon-witch, and I love her with all my heart! Even if there’s not really much I can say without spoiling things for those who haven’t gotten this far in the series yet… Of course, Jenks is very present in Trouble with the Cursed, even when Rachel tries to protect him. And Trent is there […]

ARC Review: Shenanigans – Sarina Bowen

ARC Review: Shenanigans – Sarina Bowen

Shenanigans has all the ingredients I love in a good romance! Humor, friendship, hockey, hotness and a dash of side characters to hate on. To say I loved Shenanigans is a huge understatement! Neil and Charli were such great characters to get to know. From their accidental Vegas wedding to everything they did to not only stay married, but try to work it out as a business thing rather than anything real with feelings involved. Between the friendships in both of their hockey teams, and the way they had to fight their families to get to the finish line – it all just made so much sense to me. I really loathed Neil’s uncle, because his shenanigans were just mean-spirited […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review: Tempt the Boss – Natasha Madison

Blogger Wife Chat Review: Tempt the Boss – Natasha Madison

Wifey, Tempt the Boss was just what I needed. Thank you so much for suggesting it for one of our first buddy-reads of 2022! I laughed so hard at the pranks Lauren and Austin played on each other. What did you think of the humor in this one? Thanks for agreeing to buddy read this one, wifey. And seeing as I was feeling guilty for all the laughing I was doing while reading this on an early morning flight, I suppose you can say I seriously appreciated the humor. 😉 Oh my, what these two could think up! Another thing I loved in Tempt the Boss was the relationship between Lauren and her sister, Kaleigh, and the friendship between Austin […]

ARC Review: Running Wild – K.A. Tucker

ARC Review: Running Wild – K.A. Tucker

Running Wild is Marie’s story, she is a character we met in the prior Wild stories, and she was not my favorite character in those… I wasn’t sure I’d enjoy Marie’s story, because, as I sad, I didn’t really like her in the prior books in this series. Partly, that’s because she was kind of an interloper in Calla and Jonah’s story. As Jonah’s best friend – who also had a crush on him. This is something Marie deals with in her own novel. While she is happy for Calla and Jonah, she also wants that kind of relationship for herself. The family relationships in Running Wild are a bit complicated. Marie is the oldest of three sisters, and she […]

COYER 2022 Sign-up

COYER 2022 Sign-up

COYER 2022 Sign-up If you know our blog, you know that COYER is part of our traditions. We have been participating since the very first COYER, which has led us to have many more bookish friends. And we’ve had the pleasure of meeting some of them at least once in our life. Hopefully, 2022 will be gentle, and we’ll be able to meet up with our bookish friends again in real life. At least, hanging out with our COYER friends virtually – like in the Facebook group – helps us having discussions with like-minded people. The COYER rules are up already at Because Reading is Better than Real Life, and the two other blogs that are co-hosting the challenge with […]
