{Review+Giveaway} Hangry by Lily Kate

{Review+Giveaway} Hangry by Lily Kate

Hangry is a contemporary romantic comedy by author Lily Kate. I thoroughly enjoyed Hangry. For those of you that don’t know, Hangry is a word to describe people that get angry or irritable when they are hungry. It is just as hilarious as the title and summary lead you to believe that it is. This book had me laughing pretty much non-stop from beginning to end. If you are looking for a book that is a flat out good time, give Hangry a try. I can’t wait to read more novels from Lily Kate. Hangry is a romance as well. It is the story of Lexi and Bradley. Lexi cannot stand Bradley, but when she gets so hangry she can’t stand it anymore she “sells her soul” for a hamburger. (Seriously, just thinking about this book has me grinning like a fool.) Lexi and Bradley are hilarious together. There is tons of URST, and the chemistry between the two of them is off the charts! Whatever you do, don’t write… Read more »

{Review} The Soul Mate by @KendallRyan1

{Review} The Soul Mate by @KendallRyan1

The Soul Mate is the fourth book in the roommates series by Kendall Ryan. The roommates series are each standalone contemporary romances. I loved book one, the Room Mate, and book two, The Play Mate. I liked the third book, The House Mate, but maybe not every bit as much as books 1 and 2. It was a pretty close call though. The Soul Mate fell somewhere in the same region as the third book. I love the characters, but the pregnancy plot is not always a hit with me. I will give it to Kendall Ryan, though, she took a really interesting take on the story and I really enjoyed where this one went. Overall, it was a feel good read and a great romance, just like all of Kendall’s stories. The Soul Mate is the story of Mason and Bren. They meet one night Mason fell a lot harder than Bren did. Bren scampers away and leaves Mason wanting more. But then a potential baby complication inserts itself… Read more »

{Review} WILD FOR YOU by @Daisy_Prescott

{Review} WILD FOR YOU by @Daisy_Prescott

WILD FOR YOU  is the third book in the new adult contemporary romance, Love with Altitude series by Daisy Prescott. Each of the books in the series can be read as standalone contemporary romances. Wild For You is the first book in the series that I have read, but not the first Daisy Prescott book I have read. I really enjoyed Daisy’s Wingman series, so I knew that I was going to enjoy Wild For You. Daisy is a feel good contemporary author that never fails to put me in a better mood. Wild For You might be my favorite book I have read of hers yet. It was such a sweet romance. Lighter on the sexy than her other books, but really really sweet. I loved it. Wild For You is told in dual narrative between Zoe and Justin. I liked both Zoe and Justin a lot, but I did find myself wishing for more chapters from Justin’s point of view. It felt like there were more Zoe chapters,… Read more »

{Release Day Review+Giveaway} Most Valuable Playboy by Lauren Blakely

{Release Day Review+Giveaway} Most Valuable Playboy by Lauren Blakely

MOST VALUABLE PLAYBOY is a standalone sports romance by Lauren Blakely. I was super excited for this book for two reasons. One, it is written by Lauren Blakely, and I love her romances and two it is written in the guy’s POV! I am such a huge fan of romances written in the guy’s point of view. I just love to get inside their heads and live for awhile, and I know I am not the only person who feels that way. You will all be happy to know that I absolutely LOVED Most Valuable Playboy. It was everything I was looking for in a sports romance and more. It might even be my very favorite Lauren Blakely book to date! Most Valuable Playboy is the story of  Cooper and Violet. There are so many of my favorite Tropes in this story, I don’t even know where to start. We have a fake relationship, we have guy’s point of view, we have best friend’s sister. So many yeses!!! So many!… Read more »

{Review} All I Need by Callie Harper

{Review} All I Need by Callie Harper

All I need is the fourth book in the adult romance All In series by Callie Harper. I didn’t realize this book was part of a series while I was reading it, so suffice it to say it can be read as a standalone. I would be interested in seeing who the previous three books featured. I wasn’t sure if there was character overlap in this world or if they are really standalones. All I need had a contemporary beauty and the beast vibe. I enjoyed this book throughout, but it didn’t blow me away. The writing and romance were good, but I think the main male character rubbed me the wrong way so I didn’t fall head over heels with him. All I need is told in dual narrative between Annie and Ian. Annie is hired by Ian’s father to be a live in caretaker for Ian, who was injured as a teenager in a boating accident. I liked Annie but Ian was way too much for me. Too much… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} PLAINS OF SAND AND STEEL by @AlishaKlapheke

{Review+Giveaway} PLAINS OF SAND AND STEEL by @AlishaKlapheke

Plains of Sand and Steel is the second book in the Uncommon World series by Alisha Klapheke, but the novel is a companion novel, and not a direct sequel so the book can be read without having read the first book in the series, Waters of Salt and Sin first. I really, really enjoyed Plains of Sand and Steel, but I have not read book one yet, which I now need to rectify immediately! This book was so, so much fun! And I really love the covers for the series. Aren’t they super pretty? Plains of Sand and Steel is everything I love about young adult fantasy books. First off, it is described as ” The Wrath and the Dawn meets Truthwitch in the second standalone, full length novel of the Uncommon World series.” Umm, yes please!!! It has an awesome world, awesome characters and plenty of politics to keep me turning the pages just as fast as my eyes would read them. I was honestly super bummed that I didn’t read the… Read more »

{Review} Train Wreck by Elise Faber @faberelise

{Review} Train Wreck by Elise Faber @faberelise

Train Wreck is a standalone romantic comedy by Elise Faber. It is also the first standalone novel in the Life Sucks series. I’m not sure if the series is all going to be set in the same town or not. We might get to see totally new couples in each book that are not connected. Either way, I can’t wait for the next book in the series to find out, because Train Wreck was a lot of fun. Train Wreck follow Pepper O’Brien, who life is a total train wreck. She is basically the running joke for her family. I felt kind of bad for her. On one hand, she comes from a big Hollywood family and grew up very privileged, but on the other hand, she just faced one back thing after another. I kept saying to myself, “when is this girl going to catch a break.” Sure, some of the situations were a bit over the top, but in my opinion that just added to the hilarity and… 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 »

{ARC Review} Sex in the Sticks by Sawyer Bennett @BennettBooks

{ARC Review} Sex in the Sticks by Sawyer Bennett @BennettBooks

Sex in the Sticks is the first book in a new series from Sawyer Bennett. If you didn’t know by now, I absolutely love Mrs. Bennett’s books. They are always well written, with excellent characters and they are always satisfying reads with an awesome romance. When I am in the mood for a go to contemporary romance author, Sawyer Bennett is pretty high up my list on authors I turn to. Sex in the Sticks is the first book in the Love Hurts series. I loved this book. I loved the Alaskan setting. I want to see more small town romances set in Alaska. Sex in the Sticks is the story of Val and Logan. Val is more than a little self centered, and was maybe a little conceited for my tastes, but I liked that she was who she was. She didn’t put on airs around anyone. She was just herself. Take her or leave her. Ultimately, I liked her. I liked her even more once Logan was in… Read more »
