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 […]

Blogtour Review : For the Love of April French – Penny Aimes

Blogtour Review : For the Love of April French – Penny Aimes

For the Love of April French is a tender, sweet romance between April and Dennis, where they both have some past demons to overcome. As soon as I read the synopsis for this novel, I knew I had to read For the Love of April French! A romance with a trans woman as the main character appealed to me, and the fact that the author is also a trans woman is what completely sold me. I loved getting to know April, and to understand how she thought through so many things before acting. In many ways, she was so very self possessed, and in others, she was insecure and a little afraid. I think that is par for the course […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review: Concrete Rose – Angie Thomas

Blogger Wife Chat Review: Concrete Rose – Angie Thomas

Oh my gosh, Brandee. I don’t know about you, but I absolutely adored Concrete Rose. I love that Thomas used AAVE both for the inner thoughts and for the dialogues, because it made the whole story stand out to me as very authentic and realistic. What did you think of that choice? I can’t imagine anything more perfect than AThomas giving us Concrete Rose. There was more story left after The Hate U Give – it just happened to be the story that came before. And I adored it as well. The fact that AThomas used AAVE for both the inner dialog as well as for the dialogues gave Mav’s story the richness it deserved. Very authentic and genuine. Another […]

ARC Review : Jett – Sawyer Bennett

ARC Review : Jett – Sawyer Bennett

As always, Sawyer Bennett’s hockey stars and the person they fall in love with grabbed me from the first word! Jett is fine, and I loved how persistent he was with Emory when she appeared to not be interested. Jett is a very tender romance in many places, especially because Emory is a single mother. In fact, she turns out being everything Jett thought he would never want, which just made their story even better in my opinion. Emory was very gun-shy, with good reason, and the readers and Jett learned of those reasons little by little. Each time I thought Jett would turn around and run, he surprised both me and Emory by being understanding, caring, and even loving <3 […]

ARC Review: The Mama Diaries – Belle Brooks

ARC Review: The Mama Diaries – Belle Brooks

The Mama Diaries is the book all mothers need in their life. Belle Brooks has a fantastic sense of humor, and in The Mama Diaries, she truly shone that humor on all the hard times mamas can have in the day-to-day life of raising their beloved children. Tantrums, puke, poop, love, hugs and more – it’s all part of being a mama, and it was beautifully (and very funnily) depicted in this novel. I loved that the four women, Tracey, Mia, Anna and Haddie, met and hit it off from the get-go. They all needed some friends, and The Mama Diaries showed that women can be so much stronger together. Building each other up, having each other’s backs, and simply […]

Review: Reel – Kennedy Ryan

Review: Reel – Kennedy Ryan

Reel is a beautifully written realistic romance with characters that feel so real you think they are a part of your circle of friends before the story is over. Kennedy Ryan did it again! I’m sure Reel will become a bestseller, and it already has all the necessary ingredients for a wonderful movie as well! The story is character-driven, which is my favorite kind of story. The narration starts in the past, then follows Neevah and Canon in the present – with snippets of Dessi’s life through the movie. Reel has not only made it onto my favorite 2021 shelf, it’s also on my all time favorite shelf! I would recommend this story to all romance lovers, but even more […]

Review: Love In Secrets – Scarlett Cole

Review: Love In Secrets – Scarlett Cole

Love In Secrets is a perfect friends-to-lovers story, with a ton of chemistry, a whole lot of heat, and a little heart-ache. Love In Secrets is one of those stories where I loved everything! I loved the characters and their back stories. I loved the setting. I loved the romantic elements between Cassie and Jake. And most of all, I loved that Cassie was so true to herself. From start to finish. Cassie had to come back home urgently after her dad was in an accident, and her old friend Jake came to pick her up at the airport. He comforted her and let her stay at his place. What neither of them expected were the sparks. And the chemistry […]

Review: The Girl With Stars in Her Eyes – Xio Axelrod

Review: The Girl With Stars in Her Eyes – Xio Axelrod

The Girl with Stars in Her Eyes is an amazing story, following Toni B from when she was only twelve years old. I don’t even know where to start with The Girl With Stars in Her Eyes! Axelrod did amazing with this novel, that’s for sure! The characters were very realistic, and my feeling were involved from the beginning. Toni knew the backside of fame, and she wanted nothing to do with it. Toni’s hopes and dreams were crushed more than once. First when her mom sent her away to look for fame on her own. Then, when her dad, Mo, didn’t really seem to care about having her around. Finally, when Seb up and left without telling her – […]

Review: The Iron Raven – Julie Kagawa

Review: The Iron Raven – Julie Kagawa

The Iron Raven features Puck as the main character, and I feel like I have waited for his book since forever! What a pleasure to be back in Kagawa’s fairylands once more. And even more so to learn much more about Puck, and how he was often somewhat an outsider, but one who wanted to fit in – at least sometimes. There is trouble in Faerie, and this trouble is so big it might just be too much for Puck, the Iron Fey, and a new possible ally to fight the good fight. The Iron Raven shows a different side of Faerie, now that there is a specific place where the Forgotten have taken up residence. Ethan as their champion […]
