Review: Devil’s Daughter by Lisa Kleypas

Lisa Kleypas is a master storyteller. She has this uncanny ability of making the most mundane situation, like talking about livestock & accounting, and turning it into the swooniest and most romantic thing ever. And she proved that again and again in Devil’s Daughter. West was a bit of an enigma in the previous Ravenel novels. To Phoebe, he was the boy who bullied her believed Phillip in school. To society, West is a libertine and a drunkard. But to his family, he’s the loyal and loving brother to everyone. Like Phoebe, I slowly and irrevocably fell in love with West’s humor and his steady presence. He exuded strength and understanding like if something goes wrong, you’d never have to worry because he’d be there to solve everything. West is exactly what Phoebe needed. After mourning the death of her husband, Phoebe is faced with the task of handling the […]

Review: Crashing Into Her by Mia Sosa

This book was so good.  Definitely my favorite in the series so far. The two main protagonists, Eva & Anthony, had great chemistry with each other. I love how they just can’t help themselves. They’re like two magnets drawn towards each other despite their protests. I adored the romance in Crashing Into Her. It has great pacing, lots of banter, and some really fabulous sexy times. Eva was my fave Sosa heroine thus far. Her humor, her sarcasm, her point of view on things were really interesting. Anthony was another fantastic hero by Mia Sosa. I just can’t say enough about how much I liked these two characters. They’re perfect for each other! The romance again was exceptional. Mia Sosa made me care about these characters and their feelings for each other. I was invested in seeing things through. I was invested in their relationship from the get and the […]

Review: The Risk by Elle Kennedy

Content & Trigger warning: [miscarriage, drug use (hide spoiler)] The Risk proves that no matter how many times a trope has been done to death, at the hands of a skilled writer, it will still feel fresh and new every single time. This book is Elle Kennedy in her element. The Risk is Brenna and Jake’s book. It’s part forbidden love and part fake dating trope. Jake Connelly is the captain of the rival hockey team while Brenna is the coach’s daughter of Briar U hockey. The moment these two met in The Chase, there’s no doubt in our minds that they’ll get together. The only question is when & how? Well, Elle Kennedy gave us the when & how in this book and I really enjoyed the heck out of it. Jake and Brenna’s chemistry is sizzling hot. These two set the pages on fire. And what I liked […]

Review: Clean Sweep by Ilona Andrews

Of course Ilona Andrews would cure my book slump. Clean Sweep is the first book of the Innkeeper Chronicles and I am hooked. I never fancied myself as a sci-fi reader until now. This was such a fun and interesting read. I would describe this book as a cross between Star Trek, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Firefly! But what really sold this book for me were the characters. The best thing about the Andrews’ characters are their humanity. It doesn’t matter if they’re an alien from another galaxy or a criminal with a bounty on her head, all of them have something that draw readers to them. Plus, they’re just so much fun to read. So fun that you forget these characters are not all pleasant people and could main you without breaking a sweat. I can’t say enough about Ilona Andews and their work. I love them and […]

Review: Kill the Queen by Jennifer Estep

“The day of the royal massacre started out like any other. With me doing something completely utterly useless.” All it took was that line and I was instantly hooked. Kill the Queen is a fast paced, exhilarating new fantasy series from Jennifer Estep. Filled with magic and intrigue, Kill the Queen will leave you breathless with excitement as you follow Evie’s journey from a meek orphan girl to a force to be reckoned with. Part Gladiator, part Game of Thrones, Kill the Queen is about Evie’s journey. In a world where magical abilities determines a person’s worth, Everleigh is at the bottom rung of the ladder in Bellona. No one thinks she will amount to anything. Everleigh of course is hiding a magical ability that could change the power structure in the palace. When Evie’s murderous cousin violently took the throne, Evie was forced to fight for her survival. She […]

Top 3 Reasons Why You Should Read How She Likes It by Carla de Guzman!

How She Likes It by Carla de Guzman was witty, fun, and a delightful read from beginning to end. There are plenty of reasons why you should read this book. But for the sake of brevity, I will give three reasons why you should drop everything you’re doing and go get this book right now. The subversion of the classic boss-assistant office romance trope was so well done. I’ve read a lot of books with a male boss and his female secretary. Isabel Alfonso is a career driven woman. She’s a business woman who owns a cosmetics company, and she’s on the brink of taking over her family’s business. She good at what she does and she makes no apologies for it. But while Isabel does have her career together, she doesn’t think she deserves to be loved or to be happy. Enter Adam Sevilla. Adam is the exact opposite […]

Review: A Duke by Default (Reluctant Royals #2) by Alyssa Cole

My Review “You’re my liege. You’re the person I’m fighting for.” Alyssa Cole delivered another sweet and heartfelt romance with A Duke by Default! She continues to be one of my go-to contemporary romance authors these days. There’s just something about her stories and her characters that speaks to me as a reader. And this book, is a great example of what this talented author can do! Portia Hobbs might be my favorite Alyssa Cole heroine to date. When she was introduced, she was a bit of a hot mess. She has a truckload of issues that made her an interesting character to me. I didn’t like her that much in A Princess in Theory but I was curious about her. And I knew that Alyssa Cole is going to do her story justice. She was done with fuckboys, and fuckbosses for that matter, no matter how sexy their accents […]

Review: Magic Burns (Kate Daniels #2) by Ilona Andrews

When I started reading this series October of last year, I had no idea the impact it would bring to my reading life. Sounds a bit melodramatic, no? But I’m not the type of reader who binge on a series. I just don’t have the disposition for it. I get so bored easily that bingeing on a long series is nearly impossible. Or so I thought until this series. And if there was a moment in the book where everything clicked for me, it would be this hilarious exchange between Curran and Kate: “Not only will you sleep with me, but you will say ‘please.’” I stared at him, shocked. The smile widened. “You will say ‘please’ before and ‘thank you’ after.” Nervous laughter bubbled up. “You’ve gone insane. All that peroxide in your hair finally did your brain in, Goldilocks.” The romance between these two won’t be realized until […]

Review: Iron and Magic (Iron Covenant) by Ilona Andrews

Review Ilona Andrews are one of those authors that can’t seem to do no wrong, and they proved that once again with Iron and Magic. Filled with interesting characters, pulse pounding action, and vivid world-building, Iron and Magic will leave you breathless with excitement. Fast-paced and well plotted with some of the best battle sequences I’ve read in my whole life, Iron and Magic exceeded all my expectations, and then some! “There is a tried-and-true method of making an alliance appear secure,’’ Lamar said carefully. Hugh glanced at him. “A union,” Lamar said, as if worried the word would cut his mouth. ‘’What union?” ‘’A civil union, Preceptor.’’ ‘’What the hell are you on about?’’ Lamar took a deep breath. ‘’Marriage!’’ Bale yelled out. Hugh stared at Lamar. ‘’Marriage?’’ ‘’Yes.’’ They had to be out of their minds. ‘’Who would be getting married?’’ ‘’You.’’ Iron and Magic opens a few […]
