{Review+Giveaway} Dear Dwayne, With Love by @eliza_gordon

{Review+Giveaway} Dear Dwayne, With Love by @eliza_gordon

Dear Dwayne, With Love is a standalone romantic comedy by the hilariously funny Eliza Gordon. Eliza’s book, Must Love Otters is one of my favorite romantic comedies. It is so seriously awesome, I recommend it to everyone. I am such a big fan of her books, that I read them all! She never fails to crack me. Her books always feature relateable, quirky characters and an adorable heart racing romance. They are the epitome of funny, feel good reads. And Dear Dwayne, With Love is no different. I was drawn into this story from the very first page. Dear Dwayne is the story of Dani, a girl who is a self proclaimed Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson fanatic. She has been writing letters to Dwayne for the better portion of her teenage and adult life. Let me tell you, her letters completely cracked me up. She even forms responses and has conversations with Dwayne in her head, which are equally funny. We get to watch as Dani balances her real life with… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} Unconditionally by Erin Lyon @forgereads ‏@WritingLyon ‏

{Review+Giveaway} Unconditionally by Erin Lyon @forgereads ‏@WritingLyon ‏

Unconditionally is the second book in the adult romantic comedy series called Contract Killers by Erin Lyon. I loved the first book, I love you,  Subject to the Following Terms and Conditions (See my review here). The contract Killer series is set in a world where the concept of marriage has turned into a series of seven year contracts. At the end of your contract term, you and your partner can choose whether or not to re-sign for another term of years. Unconditionally is part two of Kate’s duology. In the first book, she is blindsided by her partner when he doesn’t want to re-sign, which sets of a change in Kate’s life. We follow Kate as she navigates a new job and lots of new lover interests. It ended on a nasty cliffhanger, but Unconditionally picks up the day after book one ended and we get to see the continuation to Kate’s story. I loved Unconditionally even more than I loved the first book, and I think that has everything to… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} Grudging by Michelle Hauck @Michelle4Laughs @HarperVoyagerUS

{Review+Giveaway} Grudging by Michelle Hauck @Michelle4Laughs @HarperVoyagerUS

Today the Steadfast blog tour takes a stop at Book Briefs. Steadfast is the third book in the birth of saints trilogy. Because I am new to the trilogy, I decided to start at the beginning, which I thought would be a good place to start. And it was a really good idea, because author Michelle Hauck has created a very rich and detailed world, and now that all of the books in the trilogy are out, this series is the perfect binge read when you are looking for some adventure steeped in magic and witchcraft. Grudging felt like magic meets the crusades. It was really interesting and unlike anything I have read lately. I’m not sure how I missed this book when it came out in 2015, but boy am I glad I found it now. Grudging is the first book in the birth of saints trilogy. This is a trilogy that must be read in order. Grudging follows seventeen year old Ramiro and Claire. The atmosphere that Grudging… Read more »

{Release Day Review++Excerpt+Giveaway} Trapped by Rhonda Pollero

{Release Day Review++Excerpt+Giveaway} Trapped by Rhonda Pollero

Trapped is a romantic suspense novel by Rhonda Pollero. It is the third book in the Finding Justice Series. The Finding Justice series follows a set of brothers, but each of the books can be read as standalones. This was the first book in the series I have read, and I didn’t have any problems following the story and the characters. Trapped really did read like a true standalone. I enjoyed both the romance and the suspense aspect of the story, though maybe I did enjoy the romance aspect a tad bit more. Trapped follows Declan and Chasyn. I was initially attracted to this book because of the legal aspect of the story. I am a sucker for anything having to do with law. And I did enjoy the trial part of the story, but Chasyn’s character fell a little short for me. She is a paralegal, which I thought was a great tie in. But sometimes I just couldn’t figure out why she was doing some of the things she was… Read more »

{Mini Review+Excerpt+Giveaway} Totally His by @ErinNicholas #ReadForever @ForeverRomance

{Mini Review+Excerpt+Giveaway} Totally His by @ErinNicholas #ReadForever @ForeverRomance

Totally His is the third book in the Opposites Attract  series by Erin Nicholas. Each of the books can be read as standalones, and they are each contemporary romances. Totally His is the first book in the series that I have read, but I really enjoyed it. It totally hit the spot. I have been reading lots of heavy duty fantasies lately, which I have been absolutely loving, but I did forget how much I enjoy a lighthearted- feel good romance. And Totally His was just that. It was exactly what I needed to break up all the intense books I have been reading. Totally His is the story of Sophie and Finn. I immediately loved Sophie and Finn. Their first encounter was pretty funny. Sophie owns a theater, and Finn is called to the scene of a theater on fire and he is greeted by a woman in a robe and pink fuzzy slippers trying to sneak back into the building. Sophie will do anything she can to save her theater. Insert into… Read more »

{Review} I Love You Subject to the Following Terms and Conditions by Erin Lyon @forgereads ‏@WritingLyon ‏

I Love You Subject to the Following Terms and Conditions is the first book in the adult romantic comedy series called Contract Killers by Erin Lyon. I loved this book. As soon as I read the title, I knew I was going to love this book. (The title still cracks me up.) I love you,  Subject to the Following Terms and Conditions (hereinafter “I Love You”) (see, I can be lawyer funny too…) is set in a world where the concept of marriage has turned into a series of seven year contracts. At the end of your contract term, you and your partner can choose whether or not to re-sign for another term of years. How romantic, right? This book is marketed as, “27 Dresses meets Bridget Jones’s Diary for the millennial set”, which I think is spot on. I really really enjoyed every moment of this book. In fact, when I got to the last page, I kept trying to turn for more. I need more! I’m really hoping that the contract killers series is… Read more »
