{ARC Review} Working It by @LeahMarieBrown @lyricalpress @KensingtonBooks

Working It is the third book in the It Girl series by by Leah Marie Brown. The It Girl Series are all adult romantic comedies, and each one can be read as a standalone. Working It is the first book that I have had the opportunity to read, but now that I have seen Vivia so much from this book, I am dying to read her story. She seems awesome! I enjoyed how witty and fun Working It was. It was the perfect mix of humor, chick lit, friendship and romance. Fanny is a very posh, and some might say a bit of a B, lady who loses her job at a top fashion house and finds herself a little lost. She ends up at a non-profit in the middle of Alaska teaching a class. Working It is really a journey of self discovery for Fanny. I loved that she has such great friends. The friendships in this book made me smile almost as much as the romance did. I… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} Beauty and the Mustache by Penny Reid @ReidRomance

{Review+Giveaway} Beauty and the Mustache by Penny Reid @ReidRomance

I first discovered Penny Reid in her excerpt of a new adult story called Bunsen Burner Bingo in a new adult anthology. As soon as I was done with the story, I knew I wanted more! (that story got such a great reception that it is being made into a full length novel to be released in 2015!) And after reading Beauty and the Mustache, books #1-3 from the knitting in the city series are going straight on my wishlist! I loved Beauty and the Mustache. It is an adult contemporary so called “smart” romance. It is witty and adorable, and so, so well done. I know you will fall in love with Penny’s writing just like I did. And her characters. Beauty and the Mustache can be read as a standalone. I never felt lost or confused. The other stories were about her friends in Chicago in her knitting group. We got to see a good bit of them in this book, even though almost all of the story… Read more »

Pursuing the Times by Lauren Baratz-Logsted Kindle Edition, 257 pages Published August 24th 2012 by TKA Distribution Age Group: Adult Contemporary Romance Source: ecopy from Author Series: N/A Summary: All that popular Chick-Lit author Mercury Lauren wants is to have one of her books reviewed by the New York Times Book Review – just one – and she’ll do almost anything to get it. In this contemporary romantic comedy, with a nod toward Pride and Prejudice she crosses swords and hearts with the Editor-in-Chief of the NYTBR in a madcap adventure that takes her from her home in Westport to a yoga retreat to a golf course in Florida.
