I received an ARC from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. Release date: February 13, 2024 Rating: 4.5/5 At First Spite has a glorious premise that I couldn’t turn away from. Athena’s fiancé gets swayed by his older brother and breaks off their engagement. At that point, Athena had already bought a house that was supposed to have been a wedding present for her fiancé. She has no choice but to move into that house by herself…and now she’s neighbours with her ex-fiancé and his disapproving brother Matthew. Ahhh this book. It’s a romcom that also does a good job dealing with the topic of ..read more

I received an ARC from Valentine PR in exchange for an honest review. Release date: April 28, 2022 Rating: 4/5 Mac and Arro have been friends for years, but there’s an unresolved tension and chemistry between them. Always You begins after Mac and Arro have a mysterious fight that ruins their friendship. Arro can’t stand to even look at Mac after that fight. I was interested in Mac and Arro since book 1, but this mysterious fight hooked me even more!! The flashbacks are told in chronological order to show how Mac and Arro started off as friends, the times that they crossed the line between frie ..read more

In other words, she is a bodyguard and she can kill you with a wine bottle opener. Her new assignment? Protecting Hollywood superstar Jack Stapleton from a stalker. How? By pretending to be Jack’s girlfriend while they stay with his family at their Texas ranch. Easy, right? Okay, how is this my first Katherine Center book?!

I received an ARC from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. Release date: March 28, 2023 Rating: 2.5/5 I was lured by the delicious promise of a forbidden romance between a Countess and her daughter’s self-made suitor, but I was left disappointed in the execution. I love that we have an older heroine because it’s a rarity in historical romance. It’s interesting to read about a married heroine who ends up cheating on her piece of sh*t husband (he has been cheating on her since day 1 of their marriage). The hero is 4 years younger than the heroine and there’s an interesting twist on the f ..read more

I received a complimentary copy from Thomas Allen Ltd in exchange for an honest review. Release date: October 11, 2022 Rating: 4/5 stars After his brother dies, Lachlan inherits his childhood home and he plans to burn the house to the ground. But his dead brother’s fiancée Annelise throws a wrench in his plans because she has been living there renovating it. If you’re looking for a low-key, low stakes, low intensity, and quiet romance, then look no further. The hot cover is a bit misleading. I expected something more intense and steamy, but Love and Kerosene is low on intensity and steam ..read more

An explicit romance audiobook Talk Flirty to Me is a debut and it was such a pleasant surprise!

I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Release date: June 13, 2023 Rating: 3.5/5 When I first read the synopsis of Love, Theoretically, I immediately thought it sounded similar to two of Hazelwood’s previous books. In all honesty, if you’ve read her books before, then you will notice similar themes in Love, Theoretically. Ali Hazelwood found a template that works for her. I know exactly what I’m getting myself into when I pick up one of her books. There are no surprises, which can be a good thing if you’re looking for something easy to read. Love, Theoretically is a ..read more

I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Release date: May 23, 2023 Rating: 3.5/5 The Duchess Takes a Husband is the final book in the Gilded Age Heiresses series and it can be read as a standalone. Finally, Camille gets her well-deserved HEA with Jacob. We have a pretty common tropey situation happening here: Camille asks Jacob for lessons in intimacy and in exchange, she will pretend to be his fiancée in front of his business partners. I enjoyed the lessons in intimacy portion, but the motive for the fake relationship is weak and the author failed to take advantage ..read more

I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Release date: January 19, 2021 Rating: 4/5 Happy Singles Day is one of my older ARCs that I put off because of the mediocre and negative ratings. But I won a print copy from the publisher, so I figured I might as well give it a chance and I’m glad I did because, unpopular opinion, I actually enjoyed it! City girl Paige Parker makes the spontaneous decision to book a vacation at a bed & breakfast on Aurelia Island. She wants to spend the week cozying up at the beach and celebrating Happy Singles Day. But her vacation is off ..read more

I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Release date: October 4, 2022 Rating: 4/5 A Curse of Queens is the 4th book in the Kingmaker Chronicles and I recommend reading the original trilogy first so you don’t miss out on Flynn and Jocasta’s romantic build up. I’ve been pining for Flynn and Jocasta from the beginning and I’m so happy that the author wrote their story. Jocasta has always been in love with Flynn, her brother’s best friend. Flynn and Jocasta were also friends, but one impulsive act completely changed their dynamic 6 years ago. And now things are strained ..read more
