{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} Beard in Mind by Penny Reid @ReidRomance

{Review} Beard in Mind by Penny Reid @ReidRomance

You all know by now that I am the biggest fan of Penny Reid. And of the Winston brothers. As soon as I read Beauty and the Mustache by Penny Reid, and I was introduced to the 6 Winston Brothers, I was hooked. I knew that I wanted to read their stories. And then I read Truth or Beard, and I loved that even more. And then I read Beard Science, and I loved that the most of all!! There is not a Penny Reid book that I don’t love. And what I love even more is her writing. No one writes romance like Penny Reid. Her books are always witty, gripping and so, so, much fun to read. Beard in Mind is the fourth book in the Winston Brothers series. Each of the books in this series can be read as a standalone, but I would recommend reading them in order because they are all pure magic, and you will want to experience every minute of them. Trust me on… 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 »

{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 »

{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} 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 »

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 »
