This was a book club pick and read like one. Some interesting characters and situations that led to a fairly good discussion about our thoughts. I liked the overall story and the writing and would recommend this book to someone looking for a light, family drama.
I have been meaning to read a Mia Sosa book for a while, so when her newest was released I decided to give it a try. This felt like a movie romantic comedy and had some genuine funny moments that had me laughing out loud. However, the romance itself was just so-so and I found myself wanting more.
I picked this book up because it fit one of my reading challenge prompts (a book translated from an Asian language) and because the cover caught my eye. Never let anyone tell you that covers don’t matter. This was a fairly quick read and felt more like various vignettes than a novel but there was a uniqueness to the story that I enjoyed.
Whoa boy, this book series. Sierra Simone has become my go-to for well-written erotica and this book didn’t disappoint if you are looking for something very, very sexy. If you are looking for a super dramatic, smut filled romance, look no further. However, by book 3, I was beginning to tire of all the sex and needed some more story. I would recommend this series but didn’t feel the need for it to go on as long as it did.
I read a lot of romances last year and one of the most enjoyable was Tessa Bailey’s “Fix Her Up.” So I was really excited to read her next book in the Hot & Hammered series “Love Her or Lose Her.” Bailey’s books are always fun with minimal angst and are good for a quick read.
Jasmine Guillory could write books as part of the “Wedding Date” series for the rest of her life and I would read every single one. They are just fun, quick, enjoyable romances with great in-depth characters and happily ever afters. This is the third in the series and I think I loved this one the most.
I am on a romance reading kick right now due to my reading group studying the genre so I was looking forward to reading this book based on the good reviews and the description: a romance set in a bookstore with literacy references and romance heroes straight from novels. However, this book really didn’t live up to my expectations despite it having some really good characters and being pretty well written.
Sometimes a book comes along that is exactly what you think it’s going to be…like when a book is called “Rafe: A Buff Male Nanny.” I went into this book hoping to read a hot romance about two attractive people and that’s what I got. However, the actual story was pretty good and there was substance to the characters that I didn’t expect. This was a great contemporary romance that I would recommend to romance fans.
This is not a book I would typically read but when the assignment for my reading group requires a contemporary romantic suspense book, here we are. This wasn’t a bad book, but I felt the description was in accurate and in the end, it was meh.
