Can You Read a Series in a Month? Review ~ Tinsel ~ Devney Perry

Can You Read a Series in a Month? Review ~ Tinsel ~ Devney Perry

Oh my goodness! Tinsel was the perfect way to wrap up the Lark Cove series. It had all the feels as well as dealing with some heady and familiar topics. Sophia and Dakota made for a unique couple and their story allowed me to finish this series with a contented sigh. 🙂 Sophia is Logan’s youngest sister and I’m not gonna lie, she didn’t initially endear me with her bratty, spoiled diva behavior. However, DPerry pulled off the rare feat of changing my mind about a character. Getting to know Sophia, see her past and how it affected and shaped her, definitely altered my perception of her. She wasn’t the “poor, little rich girl” she pretended to be. Under her […]

Can You Read a Series in a Month? Review ~ Tragic ~ Devney Perry

Tragic is a worthy installment in this series. It packed a lot of feels – laughter, growls, tears – they all made appearances often. Piper and Kaine were magical together and watching them fall for one another was good stuff. We met Piper in Tattered as she’s Logan’s assistant. I knew then she was a character I wanted to get to know better. Her story was worth the wait. She’s moved to Lark Cove for a fresh start following an ugly divorce. Piper’s a fighter, though. Lark Cove is good for Piper and I enjoyed watching her blossom in the sun and fresh mountain air. Her meeting with Kaine was something. LOL These two…well, they were explosive to say the […]

Can You Read a Series in a Month? Review ~ Timid ~ Devney Perry

Can You Read a Series in a Month? Review ~ Timid ~ Devney Perry

Timid knocked my socks off in a very not timid way! This story was set up in Tattered and I couldn’t wait for Willa and Jackson’s story. And. IT. WAS. AWESOME! Willa Doon was born and raised in Lark Cove. She’s the kind of girl who’s as beautiful on the inside as she it on the outside. She’s also the kind of girl who sits back and takes it all in. She’s, well, shy. But she’s passionate and gives her all to the things that are important to her. When she first laid eyes on Jackson Page she was a goner. Nine years later, she’s still mooning over the man. Everyone in town knows Willa has a thing for Jackson…everyone […]

Can You Read a Series in a Month? Review ~ Tattered ~ Devney Perry

The first series I’m attempting to read this month is Devney Perry’s Lark Cove series. This is a buddy read with Lenore @Celebrity Readers. The first book in the series is Tattered and although I’d read it previously, it was back in 2019 and I decided to give it a re-read. Here are my thoughts from this time around, some of which are taken from my original review. 🙂   If y’all have been around for a while, you know I’m a sucker for second chance romances. Thea and Logan get a swoon-worthy second chance and I was rooting for them hard. These two initially meet in the hotel bar where Thea works in New York. They both felt an […]

Review ~ Still ~ Kennedy Ryan

Review ~ Still ~ Kennedy Ryan

Still picks up where Grip left off and I couldn’t imagine what else life could throw at Bristol and Grip. After all they’d been though and endured it felt like they should have had some time to coast. And while in some ways they were able to capitalize on their successes and enjoy some relative calm, fate had a little more to toss in their path. Grip is enjoying huge success in his musical career but after enduring a childhood in Compton as well as others trying to squash his achievements, he’s determined to make a difference socially. He’s taking classes towards his degree and has the opportunity to take a class taught by someone he truly admires – a […]

Review ~ Steal You Away ~ Victoria Ashley

Review ~ Steal You Away ~ Victoria Ashley

Naomi, at Naomi’s Reading Palace, first put Victoria Ashley on my radar. After seeing some of VAshley’s posts on Instagram about Steal You Away, I took the plunge via KU. Although there were a few issues, overall I enjoyed my first VAshley read and I’ll definitely check out more. What Worked: Plot The main plot of the story really worked for me. Colson and Kennedy grew up together, his sister being Kennedy’s best friend. They hung out a lot and Colson wanted more but he was younger than Kennedy. Unfortunately for Colson, when he told his older brother he liked Kennedy, Dax went after her instead. Of course, Kennedy never knew of Colson’s interest but they shared a close friendship […]

Review ~ Out of Love ~ Jewel E Ann

Review ~ Out of Love ~ Jewel E Ann

I didn’t realize Out of Love was a spinoff from JEAnn’s Jack & Jill series until it was too late. But even though I gave myself a spoiler for that series, it didn’t ruin this standalone and I’m determined it won’t ruin the series for me either. I’ve been wanting to read JEAnn since 2018, I think, when a friend and fellow blogger recommended her. I’m sorry to have put her off but oh, so happy I finally gave her a go. I’ve already lined up the Jack & Jill series so I can catch up. 😉 Emmy is a complete spitfire and I adored that about her. Curious beyond safety, smart, strong-willed — she did often get herself into […]

Review ~ Waking Olivia ~ Elizabeth O’Roark

Review ~ Waking Olivia ~ Elizabeth O’Roark

I immediately dove head first into Waking Olivia once I’d finished A Deal with the Devil. And to confirm what I’d purported after finishing Hayes and Tali’s story – yes, a resounding yes, EO’Roark is a new favorite author. So much yeesssss! Olivia is starting a new school and a new track team after an incident that got her kicked out of her last school, off her last team. She’s one of the best long-distance runners in the nation but she has attitude to spare and a problem she feels she can’t share. But when her new coach, who happens to be young and hot, won’t get off her case, she opens up to him. And when he understands her […]

Review ~ A Deal with the Devil ~ Elizabeth O’Roark

Review ~ A Deal with the Devil ~ Elizabeth O’Roark

I think I may have found a new favorite author. I picked up A Deal with the Devil after seeing Jana Aston recommend it as the “best book of 2021.” It’s absolutely going on my list of best reads in 2022. The last thing Tali wants to do is a 6-week gig working for Hayes Flynn, temporarily stepping into her friend’s position. Hayes has a certain reputation and Tali’s had enough of womanizing men, especially after being betrayed by the one she thought she’d marry. But she needs the money in the worst way so she’ll take the job and heed her friend’s advice…”don’t sleep with him.” Shouldn’t be difficult to make it the 6 weeks. But the more time […]

Review ~ A Fall of Water ~ Elizabeth Hunter

Review ~ A Fall of Water ~ Elizabeth Hunter

A Fall of Water was the perfect ending to B & Gio’s story, as well as the Elemental Mysteries series. EHunter brought things to a very satisfying conclusion without it being trite. She also setting the stage for the two (?) spinoff series in such a way as to ensure I continue on with these characters. 🙂 Special thanks, once again, to Lenore of Celebrity Readers for buddy reading with me. *mwah* Everything has been leading up to this final book. The culmination of it all was exhilarating, gut-wrenching, and riveting. B and Gio spend much time apart as they deal with politics and locating allies required in order to prevent a war as well as the release of a […]
