{Review+Teasers+ Giveaway} The Opposite of You by Rachel Higginson @Mywritesdntbite

{Review+Teasers+ Giveaway} The Opposite of You by Rachel Higginson @Mywritesdntbite

The Opposite of You  is the first book in the adult contemporary romance Opposites Attract  series by Rachel Higginson. I flippin’ LOVED this book. It is about time I had a 5 star contemporary read and this one earned every bit of those 5 stars. It is so excellent that I want to pick it up and read it again…immediately. You know when you love a book so much you immediately want to read other books like it? Well, The Opposite of You did that to me. I am now craving a great fight/bantering dynamic, so leave me your best new adult/adult recs below. The Opposite of You is told entirely from Vera’s point of view. Vera is a trained culinary chef, a very talented one at that, but because of a troubled past she doesn’t feel like she will ever be able to have her own kitchen. So she opens up Foodie the food truck to start her dream of doing upscale comfort food. I totally want Foodie to be real… Read more »

{Release Day Review+Giveaway} Con Man by @TTorrest

{Release Day Review+Giveaway} Con Man by @TTorrest

Con Man is a contemporary romance by T. Torrest. Guys, it is no secret that I love love love makeover stories. There is just something about the character growth and the confidence they get, and even better if the romance is between the makeover guru and the client. I just eat it up. All the time. And Con Man is no different. I loved Con Man. It was such a fun read! Plus, we don’t only get to see one of his makeover students…we get to see 3! Con Man is the story of Ainsley and Lucas and Mia. The twist on the class makeover story is that Lucas used to be a geek and he used to know Ainsley. Yes, yes, yes. yes too all of it. I couldn’t read this book quick enough. I just kept getting more and more excited as it went on. And then there is Mia. Mia is another client of his that he has a great friendship with. I loved that this book… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} Firestorm by @Donna_Grant

{Review+Giveaway} Firestorm by @Donna_Grant

Firestorm is an adult paranormal romance by Donna Grant. It is the tenth book in the dark kings series. I have not read any of the previous books in the series, but they can each be read as standalones. I do have to say, I feel like this series would be better read in order. Yes, this book can work as a standalone, but I feel like I would have a much better idea of the world if I had read the previous books. That being said, I did really enjoy Firestorm. I found it to be sexy and a great read. Firestorm starts out with our main character, an archeologist, discovering a dragon skeleton. Right away I was hooked into the story. I loved Faith and I really, really loved Dimitri. I admired how determined Faith was, and I really enjoyed the back and forth between her and Dimitri. Dimitri is super interesting himself. I loved seeing his inner struggle with the human v. dragon side and the way… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} Crossing the Friend Zone by Kelly Eadon @keauthor

{Review+Giveaway} Crossing the Friend Zone by Kelly Eadon @keauthor

Crossing the Friend Zone is an adult contemporary romance by author Kelly Eadon. This is the third book in the Belmont Beach Brides series. I really enjoyed the first two books in the series, but each of the books can be read as standalones. They are all set in the same world, and I enjoy seeing the character crossover. I loved Kelly’s easy way with romance and building a connection between characters. Her first book, The Wedding Date, was a feel good read for me, and her next book, The Family Man was the same. And Crossing the Friends Zone was no different. It was a  feel good romance that I read in one sitting. Crossing the Friend Zone is the story of Ainsley and Ryan. If you have read my reviews, you know that I love a good friends to more storyline. Mix that in with Kelly’s gift for writing fun, sweet and sexy romances that make you want to smile, and I knew this one was going to… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} The Cad and the Co-Ed by Penny Reid & @LHCosway @ReidRomance

{Review+Giveaway} The Cad and the Co-Ed by Penny Reid & @LHCosway @ReidRomance

You can see my review of books 1 & 2 here: The Hooker and the Hermit (5 stars) The Player and the Pixie (5 stars) The Cad and the Co-Ed is the third book in the Rugby series by Penny Reid and LH Cosway. I am just going to say it…The rugby series is my favorite sports romance series of all time! Which should come as no surprise to any of you because I think by now you know I have a not so mild obsession with everything Penny Reid (and now LH Cosway) writes. Each of the books in the rugby series can be read as standalones and they each follow a a different character, but trust me when I tell you this, you are going to want to read all of the books in this series. So you might as well read them in order. They are all so stupendously wonderful, and they each follow a different member of the rugby team. Please don’t make me pick my… Read more »

{ARC Review} How to Tame a Beast in Seven Days by @KerrelynSparks @StMartinsPress

{ARC Review} How to Tame a Beast in Seven Days by @KerrelynSparks @StMartinsPress

How to Tame a Beast in Seven Days is the first book in the adult paranormal romance series, called the Embraced, by Kerrelyn Sparks. This is the first time I have read a book by Kerrelyn Sparks, and I have to say I really, really enjoyed it! Actually it was a bit of a surprise for me, because How to Tame a Beast in Seven Days started out pretty rocky for me. I wasn’t feeling the characters and the premise seemed strange, but all of that changed once the main character, Luciana left the island and got to her father’s land. From there, I was totally swept up in the story. More and more with each flip of the page. I fell in love with Luciana and Leo, and I really loved their story. Ana and Leo are not allowed to touch each other. Leo is known as the beast because he can harness the power of lightning and kills with a single touch. I thought his ability was super… Read more »

{Review} THE WRIGHT BROTHER by K.A. LINDE @authorkalinde

{Review} THE WRIGHT BROTHER by K.A. LINDE @authorkalinde

The Wright Brother is the first book in the new adult/adult contemporary romance series, called The Wright series by K.A. Linde. I read another one of her books, Avoiding Commitment, back in 2013 and I really enjoyed it so I was excited to start a different series from her. It follows my favorite kind of series format for contemporary romances. Each book is set in the same world, but follows a different couple. I love this because it is kind of a standalone, kind of a series. You can pick and choose which books you want to read and if you really don’t like one of the characters you can skip their series. I can already tell that this is a series, where I will not be skipping any of the books. I am already kind of obsessed with each of the Wright brothers, and if they are all half as awesome as Jensen, I am in for a big treat with every story. The Wright Brother is the Jensen… Read more »
