{Review} I Love You Subject to the Following Terms and Conditions by Erin Lyon @forgereads ‏@WritingLyon ‏

I Love You Subject to the Following Terms and Conditions is the first book in the adult romantic comedy series called Contract Killers by Erin Lyon. I loved this book. As soon as I read the title, I knew I was going to love this book. (The title still cracks me up.) I love you,  Subject to the Following Terms and Conditions (hereinafter “I Love You”) (see, I can be lawyer funny too…) is set in a world where the concept of marriage has turned into a series of seven year contracts. At the end of your contract term, you and your partner can choose whether or not to re-sign for another term of years. How romantic, right? This book is marketed as, “27 Dresses meets Bridget Jones’s Diary for the millennial set”, which I think is spot on. I really really enjoyed every moment of this book. In fact, when I got to the last page, I kept trying to turn for more. I need more! I’m really hoping that the contract killers series is… Read more »

{ARC Review} Need You by Stacy Finz @sfinz @KensingtonBooks ‏

{ARC Review} Need You by Stacy Finz @sfinz @KensingtonBooks ‏

Need You by Stacy Finz is the first book in the Garner Brothers series. The Garner Brothers series will be a series of interconnected standalone romances, set in a small mountain town on the west coast. I enjoyed Need You by Stacy Finz. I thought it was an enjoyable story and I loved getting to know the people in the town. I think this is a series I will look forward to continuing. In the end, this book didn’t blow me away, but it was a good read. Here is what I liked about Need You: I loved the small town setting. I thought the town sounded beautiful. I loved that it was surrounded by mountains and lakes. And I really love that in a small town book you really get to know a wide group of secondary characters. Especially when the series is going to be set up to be a group of interconnected standalones. Now all of the secondary characters can really come to life throughout the books…. Read more »

{Review} The Right Ranger by Donna Michaels

{Review} The Right Ranger by Donna Michaels

The Right Ranger is the third book in the Men of At Ease Ranch series by Donna Michaels. I have  not read either of the first two books, but we did get to see glimpses of the two couples from those books, and I really liked them, so I might eventually go back and read their stories. As for Haley and Cord’s story. I liked it. It was a super quick read for me. Easy to digest in one short sitting, but I didn’t love it if I am honest with myself. It was a good read, but not much more than that. Cord is Haley’s deceased husband’s best friend. But the whole book Haley is carrying this burden of her husband’s secrets. Honestly, it was really intriguing for me. I knew some of what he did, but the way Haley spoke about it, I felt like there was way more than we were being kept in the dark about. I was super interested to find out what all of the… 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 »

{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 »

{Mini Review} KISS OF THE IRISH by Lauren Hawkeye

{Mini Review} KISS OF THE IRISH by Lauren Hawkeye

MINI REVIEW Kiss of the Irish by Lauren Hawkeye is the first book in the adult contemporary romance Foreign Fling series. To me, even the name of the series screams frivolous fun. And I am happy to report this book was just that. I had a few minor issues with the character and some plot things, but overall this book was a lot of fun. Bring on the Irish! Kiss of the Irish is the story of Sarah and Cian. Sarah has had a rough go of it lately, so she breaks free for a fun trip to Ireland, where she meets Cian. I enjoyed Sarah and Cian. I liked each of them about 90% of the time. Sarah irked me a bit towards the end of the book, but overall I thought they were both good characters , and their romance was sexy and fun. Just like I wanted. The couple has minor roadblocks but nothing too dramatic, which I appreciated. I liked the set up of the story… 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 »

{Mini Review+Giveaway} Seeking Mr. Wrong by Natalie Charles @GalleryBooks

{Mini Review+Giveaway} Seeking Mr. Wrong by Natalie Charles @GalleryBooks

Seeking Mr. Wrong is an adult contemporary romance by Natalie Charles. This is the first book I have read by Natalie Charles, and I have to say I really enjoyed it. I thought it was a funny and quick read. It is about an author that is “forced” to switch from children’s books to spicy adult romance books when her publisher is bought by another publisher who publishes romance. Watching Lettie struggle with this problem, which is totally outside of her personality and wheelhouse was really amusing for me.  Not to mention hilarious for the people in her life as well. I loved seeing her family’s reaction to the whole thing. I thought her story was tons of fun. And Lettie herself is really likable and funny. I enjoyed Seeking Mr. Wrong. I don’t want to spoil too much of the plotline for this one, so you will just have to pick up the book for yourself to see. While the book didn’t totally rock my world, I did really enjoy… 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 »
