{Review} Everything Girl by Emily Mayer

{Review} Everything Girl by Emily Mayer

Everything Girl  is a contemporary romance by debut author Emily Mayer. I was first drawn to Everything Girl because the main character mentioned law school and being a lawyer, so I thought I would be able to relate to her as a main character. Plus, I am always down for a good contemporary romance. And Everything Girl turned out to be a fun slow burn romance read that I really enjoyed. In Everything Girl, we meet our main character Evelyn. Evelyn has her life all figured out- go to a great law school, become a lawyer, get a great job, and live happily ever after. Perfect, right? Well, it turns out to be not so perfect. When Evelyn decides she is miserable at her job she decides to take a different path in life, and she finds herself in Pinehaven Ranch in Montana, faced with stinky rodeo champions and no coffee shops. Oh, the horror! Fans of cowboy romances, will really enjoy Emily Mayer’s story. It will become a great… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} Lycan’s Blood Queen by Catherine Edward

{Review+Giveaway} Lycan’s Blood Queen by Catherine Edward

Lycan’s Blood Queen is the first in the adult paranormal romance duology called the Randolph Duology, by Catherine Edward. I was very intrigued by the summary of this book, and I love books that feature more than one kind of creature because I really enjoy reading about different authors takes on paranormal creatures. The Randolph Duology features Lycans, Vampires and Witches. A classic mix, but we get to see a twist on one of the creatures which I really enjoyed. Lycan’s Blood Queen had a bit of a rocky start. I was confused when I first started reading. I didn’t know what was going on and I wasn’t getting to know any of the characters very well. Honestly, I almost put the book down and went to try something else. But I decided to keep reading to see if the pieces came together for me, and I am very glad that I did. I ended up really enjoying Lycan’s Blood Queen, and I am certainly very interested in reading the… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} No More Bad Dates by Kate O’Keeffe

{Review+Giveaway} No More Bad Dates by Kate O’Keeffe

No More Bad Dates is an adult contemporary romantic comedy by Kate O’Keeffe. It is the first book in the high tea series, which is taglined as a cozy cottage cafe story. I am unsure at the moment if all of the books in the series will be standalones or if you will need to read them in order. If I had to guess, I would think they are will be set in the same world, but will all act as standalone cozy romances. I have to say I don’t love the cover because it reminds me too much of Barbie, but I do love the story setup. In No More Bad Dates we meet our main character Sophie, who gets dumped at a wedding by a royal jerk. Because, seriously…who does that??! Oh don’t worry, he had a great reason. Because Sophie has been burned one too many times, she decides to have her friends help her pick out guys to date before she dates them. This is an… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} Forever Chosen by K.L. Bone

{Review+Giveaway} Forever Chosen by K.L. Bone

Forever Chosen is an adult paranormal romance novella in the vampire brides series. The books in the vampire brides series are each standalones, so they can be read in any order, and they are all written by different authors and have different lengths and heat levels. I like the concept behind a series like this, and I think it would be perfect if you are craving some vampire romance. My problem is I think I am just over vampires at the moment. Most of the time, they don’t feel unique or different enough, and that was kind of my experience with Forever Chosen. This book was ok. It was well written and the story and characters were fine. It just didn’t excite me because I didn’t really want to be reading about vampires. That is entirely a me issue, not a book issue. I think if you are in the mood for a vampire romance, this book and this series will be right up your alley. Forever Chosen is the… Read more »
