Review ~ Sugarcoated ~ Erin Nicholas

Review ~ Sugarcoated ~ Erin Nicholas

Sugarcoated served as my gateway to all things ENicholas and it was a treat. 😉 Her writing style made for easy reading and her characters were engaging. I’m eager to read more from this series. I buddy read Sugarcoated with my friend, Sophia Rose. 😀 What Worked: Plot/Trope As a brother’s best friend/little sister rom-com, I delighted in the setup. Aiden is Zoe’s older brother’s best friend and they grew up together in a small town. When Zoe decides she wants to punch her V-card, she can’t think of anyone she’d be more comfortable with than Aiden. Aiden has other ideas though so he turns her down until he can put his plans in order and deploy them. Unfortunately, part […]

Review ~ Runed ~ Kendall Grey

Review ~ Runed ~ Kendall Grey

Runed was, in a word, ZANY. Another word? FUN! This was the book chosen for reading on the way home from Book Bonanza. My friend, Denise, did some wacky calculation to pick it but I’m so happy we gave it a go. There was lots of laughing. 🙂 Loki – yes, that Loki – awakes buried in snow and ice. His first concern is getting out of said snow and ice. Next order of business? Dealing with the fact he is now a she. Since there seems to be nothing he, er, she can do about the body she now inhabits, she must focus on finding her runes. Yes, those runes that provide intuition, among other things. Most importantly, immortality. […]

Review ~ Book Boyfriend ~ Claire Kingsley

Review ~ Book Boyfriend ~ Claire Kingsley

The premise of Book Boyfriend resonated with me. Finding a boyfriend in real life that equally as fabulous, if not more so, as those we find in books? Yes, please! Amiright? I was so happy that Book Boyfriend delivered on its promise. Mia is the quintessential bookworm. Someone I’d be friends with due to our love of perusing bookshops for hours, discussing books, and, of course, arguing over book boyfriends. 😉 She’s a closet book blogger, with not a small amount of success and has forged many online friendships with readers and authors. These friendships, one in particular, are lifelines when she wants to discuss things like books or bad dates because her family doesn’t really get her. Alex left […]

Can You Read a Series in a Month? Review ~ Banking the Billionaire ~ Max Monroe

Can You Read a Series in a Month? Review ~ Banking the Billionaire ~ Max Monroe

Hot diggity! Banking the Billionaire delivered on the story I was keen to get on Cassie and added in the delight of the unexpectedness of Thatch. I got snark, pranks, holy hotness, and character growth! That’s a whole lot of goodness. 😉 It wasn’t without its issues but I enjoyed this installment more because of the emotional growth. What Worked Characters Okay, so Cassie was the one I was most excited to get better acquainted with. I mean, she’s a woman who is strong, smart, talented, and sexually empowered. I had no idea she was such a prankster. The stunts she pulls trying to one up Thatch were hilarious. Getting to meet her family and understand her on a deeper […]

Can You Read a Series in a Month? Review ~ Tapping the Billionaire ~ Max Monroe

Can You Read a Series in a Month? Review ~ Tapping the Billionaire ~ Max Monroe

I’d never read Max Monroe before but I owned a copy of Tapping the Billionaire. When Berls recommended this series for this challenge because Max Monroe are signing at Book Bonanza AND it also ticked the box for Bookish Bounty, I decided it was a win-win situation. Lucky for me, it was a good read for the most part. The setup is that Georgia works at Kline’s company but they’ve never looked at each other as anything other than boss-employee. However, one evening Kline finds Georgia being adorable at the exact moment he’s blocking his mom’s attempt at setting him up on a date. He tells his mom he has a date and then sets out to get Georgia to […]

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 […]

Review ~ Spoiler Alert ~ Olivia Dade

Review ~ Spoiler Alert ~ Olivia Dade

Spoiler Alert delivered ALL the feels! It was angsty and emotional, and ODade captured exquisitely the injury and scars that can come at the hands of those we love…those that are supposed to love us unconditionally. I am ecstatic that Spoiler Alert was chosen for February’s COYER Book Club and that I was able to read it with two of my COYER friends, Berls and Kristen. April is a geologist. She chose her field because she loves rocks. She loves rocks for their layers and the stories they tell. She also has a side interest, that of writing fan fiction based on her favorite TV series. The parallels between April’s rocks’ stories and the stories she writes are myriad. When […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Rockaway Bride & The Hero and the Hacktivist ~ Pippa Grant

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Rockaway Bride & The Hero and the Hacktivist ~ Pippa Grant

Wifey, I didn’t think I was going to like Rockaway Bride as much as its predecessors because it didn’t incorporate the full cast like the first 2 installments did. However, after some reading and thinking, I realized that with Willow being the quiet introvert of this group, this was the only way her story could have been told! YAY I’m so happy you enjoyed this as well! It didn’t incorporate the full cast, but my oh my, it was well done, right?   So, the pre-wedding night…I can’t express how elated I was that she was re-thinking marrying what’s-his-name. (As an aside, I really want to read her step-brothers’ books because I love them!) The shenanigans definitely took an interesting […]

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 […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Mister McHottie & Stud in the Stacks ~ Pippa Grant

Wifey, thank you SO much for recommending this series. I needed lots of giggles and PGrant and the Girl Band series delivered. I enjoyed this series so, so much, Brandee! I think they kind of saved me in 2021… laughing out loud and following the crazy shenanigans of these characters just made me feel so good.   I have to say that I’m not the biggest fan of hate sex. BUT PGrant made me a fan of Bro & Chase’s version of it! 😉 LOL, Bro and Chase are definitely it… and I thought it was kind of ‘normal’ for them to have hate sex, yeah?   I adore the fact that Bro, or Sia, as she goes by with […]
