{Review} The Upside to Being Single by Emma Hart @EmmaHartAuthor

{Review} The Upside to Being Single by Emma Hart @EmmaHartAuthor

The Upside to Being Single is a romantic comedy by author Emma Hart. This book was a ton of fun, from the New Orleans setting to the awesome banter between the main character and her boss. The Upside to Being Single is currently listed as a standalone, but the main character, Mellie has two best friends who are pretty much additional main characters Peyton and Chloe. Peyton is getting her own book, which is the start of the upcoming Experiment series, and Chloe’s story is slated to be the second book in that duet, so in my mind this is really the first book in the set of interconnected standalone trilogy for Mellie and her friends. I really enjoyed The Upside to Being Single. It is full of humor and lots of unresolved sexual tension. IN fact, there may have been just a tad too much of it. I felt like by the time something actually happened between Mellie and Jake, the book was almost over. That bummed me out a little… Read more »

{Review} Twisted Twosome by @AuthorMegQuinn ‏

{Review} Twisted Twosome by @AuthorMegQuinn ‏

Twisted Twosome is a standalone romantic comedy by author Meghan Quinn. I have really enjoyed all of Meghan’s books that I have read in the past, and twisted Twosome was no exception. This was a fun banter filled romantic comedy about an unlikely couple that I downed in one sitting. There was really only one thing that bugged me, which we will get to later, but I doubt it will bug many of you. I think I am just weird. Let’s start with all of the things I loved about Twisted Twosome. I loved that this book was told in dual narrative between Racer and Georgiana, or Georgie as he calls her. I loved all of the bickering, bantering and pranks galore between the two of them. They were constantly trying to one up the other one, and I found it to be hilarious. Meghan Quinn is so good at writing romantic comedies. Her books always have me laughing. I also love the way she writes romantic tension. She is… Read more »

{Release Day Review+Giveaway} Tempting Levi by @jules_barnard @givemebooksblog

Happy Release day to Tempting Levi, the first book in a new series by Author Jules Barnard. Tempting Levi is the first book in the new adult contemporary romance, Cade Brothers series by author Jules Barnard. I have read, and really enjoyed, the first couple of books in Jules’ series, which used to be called the Blue series, and is now called the Men of Lake Tahoe series. I really enjoyed the books I read from the series, and I have been meaning to finish it. Now that I have read, and enjoyed Tempting Levi as well, maybe that will be the motivation I need to pick up the next book in the Men of Lake Tahoe series. Tempting Levi is told in dual narrative between our main character Levi, and Emily. Before I dive into what I liked about the characters, let me set up the series for you, because I really love the setup. Levi and his brothers have inherited their father’s luxury resort. His father left Levi in… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} Ninja Girl by Cookie O’Gorman @CookieOwrites

{Review+Giveaway} Ninja Girl by Cookie O’Gorman @CookieOwrites

Ninja Girl is a young adult contemporary romance by Cookie O’Gorman. Last year, I read Adorkable by Cookie and I absolutely loved it. It was so stinkin’ cute. Ninja Girl looked super cute, so I couldn’t pass this one up. I didn’t even realize that it was set in the same universe as Adorkable until I was about halfway through the book. It’s not a sequel or anything, so you don’t have to read adorkable first, but if you are looking for cute YA reads, you totally should. Both Adorkable and Ninja Girl were excellent! Ninja Girl is the story of Ash, a politician’s son and Snow, an awesome martial artist. I loved the scene in the movie theater where Ash and Snow “met”. Holy Cow! That scene was making me nervous. Snow has more guts in her little finger than I do in my whole body I think! I know that is what caught Ash’s eye in the first place. Watching him pursue Snow was beyond cute. I loved… Read more »

{Review+Excerpt} Mixed up by @EmmaHartAuthor

{Review+Excerpt} Mixed up by @EmmaHartAuthor

Mixed Up is a standalone contemporary romance by Emma Hart. I read, and really enjoyed Being Brooke, another one of Emma’s contemporary romances. I thought Being Brooke was hilarious and I was really looking forward to seeing if Mixed Up was as sassy and fun as Being Brooke. Sometimes for me, the true test of an author is to read two or three different standalones or series, and see if I enjoy all of them. If I do, the author beings part of my auto buy or auto interest. And I am very happy to say, that I really enjoyed Mixed Up. Even more than I enjoyed Being Brooke, in fact. Mixed Up is an enemies to more trope, and I loved it. I noticed something very interesting after reading Mixed Up. I think I have a new found thing for books featuring chefs. My last 5 star read was The Opposite of You by Rachel Higginson, and that book was also an enemies to more read featuring two chefs…. Read more »

{Release Day Review} The Hot Shot by Kristen Callihan @Kris10Callihan

{Release Day Review} The Hot Shot by Kristen Callihan @Kris10Callihan

  The Hot Shot by Kristen Callihan is the fourth book in the Game on series. in 2014, I read, and TOTALLY LOVED the first book in the series, The Hook Up. I mean, really loved it. I always meant to continue on with the series, but life and other books just kept getting in the way. Fast forward to 2017, and I see another book by Kristen float into my email, and I immediately pounce. The books in the Game on Series can each be read as standalone because they each feature different characters. The first book (and I think books 2 and 3) feature college football players, but the fourth book is set in the same world, at the same time as the previous books, but it features a professional NFL player. The Hot Shot is told in dual narrative between Chess and Finn. Chess is a photographer, and she meets Finn first when she has to take some rather racy pictures of him and his teammates.
