{Review} TALK BRITISH TO ME by @RobinBielman @EntangledPub

{Review} TALK BRITISH TO ME by @RobinBielman @EntangledPub

  Talk British to Me is the first book in the Wherever you Go series by author Robin Bielman. I have really enjoyed a lot of Robin’s other books, so I was pretty set on reading this one when it came out. But then I read the summary for it and I was totally hooked. An American man that poses as a British dating guy to stay anonymous for his popular dating talk show. And a young lady who has a huge crush on said british talk show host, but meets the american version in real life and non-dating hijinks ensue. Umm, yes please! Talk British to Me is told in dual narrative between Teague and Mateo. I really liked both of the main characters a lot. We got to know them each really well and I loved the slow burn of their relationship. They are great friends first and foremost, even if Mateo wanted to date her pretty much from day one. Well, maybe date is not the right word…… Read more »

{Review} Finding You by Jo Watson @Jowatsonwrites @ForeverRomance ‏

{Review} Finding You by Jo Watson @Jowatsonwrites @ForeverRomance ‏

Finding You by Jo Watson is the third book in the Destination Love series. I have not read any of the previous novels in this series, but Finding You was so much fun that now I want to. Each of the novels in the Destination Love series can be read as total standalones. I don’t even think there is any character overlap, which is nice because they are true standalones that way. Finding You is the story of Jane, who goes to Greece in search of her birth father. Jane basically has a name and an occupation, and nothing else to go on. She even picks the part of Greece randomly and sets off. Which is crazy, in my opinion and totally unlike the character of the Jane I got to know. (Which she readily admits is true.) Jane was a hoot and a half. I loved her and all of her quirks! She is a successful dentist and she knows trivia about all sorts of topics, and she can’t… Read more »

{Mini Review+Excerpt+Giveaway} Gallowglass by Jennifer Allis Provost

{Mini Review+Excerpt+Giveaway} Gallowglass by Jennifer Allis Provost

Gallowglass is the first book in the adult paranormal romance series of the same name by author Jennifer Allis Provost. I enjoyed Gallowglass and I am excited to continue on with the series. I found this one to be a bit slow in parts, but the characters and the story line, along with the promise of where the series can go was enough to keep me interested in the story the whole time. This book felt more like a foundational book for the series. I think with the foundation to the story laid out, the rest of the books will be even better for me. There were so many elements that I really enjoyed in Gallowglass so I am going to quickly list the things I loved, and then I would encourage you to check out the excerpt above if you think this is the type of book that would interest you. I loved the setting. I have always wanted to visit Scotland, and I adore books that take place there. I… Read more »

{Review} Dating-Ish by Penny Reid @ReidRomance

{Review} Dating-Ish by Penny Reid @ReidRomance

‘Dating-ish’ can be read as a standalone, is a full length 100k word novel, and is book #6 in the Knitting in the City Series. Dating-ish is a romantic comedy from the fabulous Penny Reid. By now, I think you all know that Penny is one of my all time favorite authors. I absolutely love everything she writes. Seriously, everything. I can count the amount of authors that is true of on my hands, so it is a big deal to me. I have not read all of the Knitting in the City books, which I need to rectify immediately because they are so excellent. I have read a couple of them. Each of the novels works as a standalone, but they are about a group of friends, so reading them all does give you some nice character and couple overlap. Dating-ish follows Marie and Matt. I absolutely loved the two of them. I want another book written from Matt’s point of view, or some deleted scenes or something because… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} Forbidden Promises by @katee_robert @Barclay_PR

{Review+Giveaway} Forbidden Promises by @katee_robert @Barclay_PR

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katee Robert delivers the next book in her sizzling O’Malleys family series, hailed as “The Godfather meets Romeo & Juliet.” FORBIDDEN PROMISES features Sloan O’Malley and her mysterious new next-door neighbor, Jude MacNamara. Forbidden Promises is the fourth book in the contemporary romance series, called The O’Malleys by author Katee Robert. I have read several of Katee’s books in the past and really enjoyed the steamy romance, including book one in The O’Malleys.The Marriage Contract,  so I couldn’t wait to continue this series. I enjoyed getting to know some of the O’Malleys, and this is a series that I really want to go back and read books 2 and 3, which I missed. This series follows the three powerful Boston families- the O’Malleys, the Hallorans, and the Sheridans. Forbidden Promises follows Sloan and Jude. Sloan is an O’Malley, and Jude is out for Sheridan blood. If I thought The Marriage Pact was intense, the stakes were notched up even higher in this book. While, I was… Read more »

{Review} Only With Me by Kelly Elliott

{Review} Only With Me by Kelly Elliott

Only with Me is the second book in the adult contemporary romance, With Me series by Kelly Elliott. Each of the books in the With Me series can be read as standalones, and to be honest, I didn’t even realize this was the second book in the series until I pulled up the goodreads page to start compiling my post information. It really did read like a standalone. I loved the family dynamics in Only with Me. In fact, the geek mama was my very favorite part of the book. I found her to be hilariously awesome. The romance was also good, and overall this one was a decent read for me. I enjoyed it (the first half a little more than the second half) but it isn’t going to be a very memorable read in years to come. Still a fun sexy romance that will have you smiling. Only with Me is told in dual narrative between our main couple, Gabi and Nic. Gabi is an awesome cook and… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} Plight by K.M. Golland

{Review+Giveaway} Plight by K.M. Golland

Plight is a new adult romantic comedy by K.M. Golland. I couldn’t turn down Plight because the summary seemed zany enough to be a funny romantic comedy. And it was. But at times it was a bit too over the top for me. A fun read, but it didn’t blow my socks off. The concept is equal parts hilarious and crazy. Basically, two neighborhood friends have proposal when they are 8 years old with a cheese doodle as the ring. Flash forward to when they are 30 and Elliot is ready to cash in on that marriage. Plight is a zany read that was fun. Parts of it are completely unrealistic and unbeliveable but if you are in the mood for some light hearted fun that you don’t take too seriously, Plight is a fast paced read that will put a smile on your face. The reason I couldn’t go from like to love with Plight was the fast pace that the story sets out on. We are in chapter… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} When Danger Bites by Heather Long

{Review+Giveaway} When Danger Bites by Heather Long

When Danger Bites by Heather Long is the first book in the Bravo Team WOLF series. I enjoyed this book. It has been awhile since I have read an adult paranormal romance, and I forgot how much I enjoy them. When Danger Bites was a good start to the series, but it kind of felt like there was a lot of build up, and a lot of working up to the romance in this one. Overall, I liked the story, but I felt like the romance moved a little bit too slow for my liking. When Danger Bites is the story of Kat and Jax. I really, really loved Kat and Jax. I was rooting for them pretty much from the beginning, which is why I think I wanted them to get together a little faster. Because it was so clear to me they are dynamite together. Kat is sent in to join a special ops team and to figure out what is going on with them, and Jax is… Read more »

{Review+Guest Post+Giveaway} Sweet Southern Trouble by @Michele_Summers

{Review+Guest Post+Giveaway} Sweet Southern Trouble by @Michele_Summers

Sweet Southern Trouble is an adult sports romance by author Michele Summers. This is the first book I have had the pleasure of reading by Mrs. Summers, but it certainly will not be the last. I loved Sweet Southern Trouble. It was the kind of book that allowed me to totally escape from the real world. I was very absorbed in this book late into the night and even in the morning before I drove to work. I just had to finish it! And I certainly cannot say that about all books I read. It doesn’t look like Sweet Southern Trouble is going to be a series, but I really really wish it would be. I got to know Q and so many of the other football players well enough. I want them to have their own stories! Please, make that happen! Sweet Southern Trouble is a standalone romance novel told in dual narrative between Marabelle and Nick. Marabelle is like a force of nature. I loved watching her tenacity… Read more »
