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 […]

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 […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ The Next Mrs Russo ~ Jana Aston

Hooray! JAston is BACK! And with The Next Mrs Russo she’s better than ever! 🙂 Oh my gosh – it was all I could have ever wished for and more! I immediately fell for Audrey. Her quirky personality and her hysterical internal dialog was so much fun and it allowed us to really get to know her. I adored that she up-cycled vintage clothing (I didn’t know that was a thing) and that her plumbing was essentially held together with duct tape. Audrey made me realize how much I’d missed JAston’s characters. What about you? Audrey was fantastic – I loved her stream-of-consciousness talking and thinking. I had never heard of up-cycling vintage clothing either, but that was so cool […]

Review ~ The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared ~ Jonas Jonasson

Review ~ The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared ~ Jonas Jonasson

What a fun, quirky story! The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared is reminiscent of Forest Gump and Allan Karlsson is every bit as endearing and loveable. Steven Crossley, the narrator, who was new to me, made the story that much more entertaining. He was able to convey the wit of Allen’s antics perfectly. Allan, a Swedish man with unique talents (specifically blowing up things), has had a hand in many – possibly every – historical event in his century-long life. Of course, Allan never intended to play a role in any of the events he inadvertently participated in. The only things he truly cared about were having food to eat, vodka to drink, and a place […]

Can You Read a Series in a Month? Challenge Reviews ~ Pucked Series ~ Helena Hunting

Woohoo! This time I did indeed read a series in a month! And I’m patting myself on the back considering I had TWO trips to the Pacific Northwest during the month of November. Of course, 6 hour round-trip flights and time to read while waiting on kids to get out of class helped. 😉 The Pucked Series was so much fun and if you haven’t read it yet, I highly recommend it! *Note* I only read the 6 main novels of the series. I still have novellas to read. 😀 Here are the reviews that haven’t already been posted. Pucked Up features Buck/Miller and Sunny, who is Alex’s younger sister. There was a lot of angst in Miller and Sunny’s […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ If You Give a Jerk a Gingerbread ~ Jana Aston

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ If You Give a Jerk a Gingerbread ~ Jana Aston

If You Give a Jerk a Gingerbread was even more satisfying than its predecessor. Of course, it could have been the British accent. Or the sexy banter. Or all the baking! Yeah, it was definitely the British accent. 😉 All of the above 🙂 I loved the British accent. And I also adored the sexy banter. Plus, the baking was just as hot as the steamy scenes. I don’t know what it was but I found Ginger’s story even more entertaining. Maybe because we’d met her before? Or maybe it’s because she’s adorable…like a kitten. I was thoroughly entranced her her and her inner monologue, her daydreams where she’d get lost in the haze, her real dreams of owning her […]

Can You Read a Series in a Month Review #1 ~ Pucked ~ Helena Hunting

Can You Read a Series in a Month Review #1 ~ Pucked ~ Helena Hunting

Oh golly was Pucked a lot of fun! I loved Violet! Her klutziness, her lack of filter…the things that came out of her mouth! LOL I adored Alex, too. His loyalty, his tenacity, his loving Violet for exactly who she is. I have a feeling I might fly through this series! Highlights: Characters Not only was I delighted with Violet and Alex but HHunting populated their story with an outstanding secondary cast. From Alex’s teammates to his parents and Vi’s step-brother, parents, and best friend – they all combined to better convey the character of Violet and Alex. The secondary characters also gave depth to the story. Plus, I’m eager to learn more about quite a few hockey players. 😉 […]
