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

{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 »

{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} I Believe in a Thing Called Love by Maurene Goo @mauxbot ‏@FierceReads

{Review} I Believe in a Thing Called Love by Maurene Goo @mauxbot ‏@FierceReads

I Believe in a Thing Called Love by Maurene Goo is a young adult standalone contemporary romance. This book had me giggling and smiling right from the very beginning. I seriously loved this novel. I can’t wait to read more by Maurene Goo because this was everything I am looking for in a cute, feel good contemporary romance. This tag line right here sold me from the get-go: “A funny young adult novel about a Korean-American girl who uses K-Drama techniques to snag the boyfriend of her dreams.” Umm, yes!!! And it was every bit as adorable as you think it would be. I loved all of the k-drama inspiration, and I really loved Desi’s list to finding her perfect boyfriend. It was hilarious. Desi and I clicked from the very first page. As soon as she was describing trying to make her pencil move with her mind, and she was so deep into her concentration, she had her dad come into the room and feed her soup, I was… 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} Stroked Hard by Meghan Quinn @AuthorMegQuinn

{Review} Stroked Hard by Meghan Quinn @AuthorMegQuinn

Stroked Hard is the third book in the a new adult contemporary romance series, Stroked, by Meghan Quinn. I loved the first book, Stroked, a LOT,and then I read Stroked Long and that book LEVELED ME. I love Bodi so hard. It is without a doubt, the best book I have read in 2016. Hands down.  And book two is still the best book I have read in 2016. Which brings me to why this review is hard for me to write. It is really hard to follow up a book that I love so so much with another book in the series featuring a different character that is not Bodi, I was destined to not love it as much. But Stroked Hard is still a really good read. It is just hard to follow up such a perfect book. Even so, I love the Stroked Series so much! Each of the books are excellent in their own regard. I think this is a series that everyone needs to read (especially… Read more »

Her books are always witty, gripping and so, so, much fun to read. Beard Science is the third book in the Winston Brothers series. I loved Duane and Jessica’s story, but I missed the second book in the series (which I need to read ASAP). Beard Science features Cletus and Jennifer (known around town as the Banana Cake Queen.) If I thought that I loved Duane and Jessica, somehow they didn’t hold a candle to Cletus. I don’t know how Penny does it, but she just makes me love each brother more than the last one! I remember… Read more »

{ARC Review} Tonic by Staci Hart @imaquirkybird

{ARC Review} Tonic by Staci Hart @imaquirkybird

Tonic is a new adult romantic comedy by Staci Hart. I would put this one more in the vein of a contemporary romance because it takes some time for the comedy part of the romantic comedy to gear up. But either way, I loved Tonic. I was in the mood for a really great romance and it totally hit the spot. I have been wanting to read another Staci Hart book for a while now, because I knew that I would really enjoy it and I was right. She is right up there with Penny Reid and Meg Cabot as my romance go to authors. I loved the perspective that Tonic took. I am a reality tv show junky and Tonic is about a tattoo shop that is getting it’s own reality show. But the story itself is told in dual narrative between Annika and Joel. Joel is the shop owner and Annika is a tv show producer. That is the interesting perspective I am talking about. I think it… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} 12 Steps to Mr. Right by @CindiMadsen @EntangledPub

{Review+Giveaway} 12 Steps to Mr. Right by @CindiMadsen @EntangledPub

12 Steps to Mr. Right is a fantastic romantic comedy by Cindi Madsen. I really, really loved this book. It reminded me of a mash up of (the sister of) How to Lose a Guy in 10 days and He’s Just not That into You. I think 12 Steps to Mr. Right is screaming to be made into a movie. Savannah’s voice would make an amazing rom com movie character. If you are a fan of romantic comedies, this is a must read book for you. (and if you are like me and stuck in a hurricane watch/state of emergency, this is the perfect book to snuggle under the covers with and watch the rain and wind blow all around you.) 12 Steps to Mr. Right is told from Savannah’s point of view, and I absolutely LOVED her. She is smart, and driven and so poised. Not to mention she has a great sense of humor. That was what I liked the most about the dynamic between her and Linc…. Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} Stroked Long by Meghan Quinn @AuthorMegQuinn

Stroked  Long is the second book in the a new adult contemporary romance series, Stroked, by Meghan Quinn. I loved the first book, Stroked, a LOT, so I went into Stroked Long expecting to enjoy it, but I got so much more than that. This book LEVELED ME. I love this book, and Bodi so hard. It is without a doubt, the best book I have read in 2016. Hands down. I don’t even know how to adequately express my love for this book. This is not just a book for romance lovers, or a book for sports romance lovers. This is a book that everyone needs to read! I loved Reese from book one, but Bodi made me say Reese who? I can’t even decsribe how deep my love for Bodi and Stroked Long goes. This book affected me on a very deep level. The care and liove that Meghan Quinn took describing Bodi’s struggles were evidence on every single page. I have seen so many books with OCD characters, and… Read more »
