Review: A Lesson in Thorns (Thornchapel #1) by Sierra Simone

I bought this ebook months ago, and for the life of me, I couldn’t remember why. The cover description was intriguing, but not my typical fare. It seemed a bit too throw-back Gothic for me. So, I glanced at a few online reviews, and one of them complained about bisexual characters. Who cares why IContinue reading “Review: A Lesson in Thorns (Thornchapel #1) by Sierra Simone”

Review: The Chef's Cutie (River Hill #5) by Rebecca Norinne & Jamaila Brinkley

Disclaimer: I am friends with the authors; I received an advanced ebook in exchange for an honest review. This was a satisfying conclusion to the series of love stories in the town of River Hill!

Review: Resort to Love (Paradise Key #3) by Priscilla Oliveras

Disclaimer: I am acquaintances with the author; however, I purchased the hardcopy of this book for full price. It was so easy to fall into Sofia’s life and connect with her story. Oliveras has an obvious talent for crafting a well-rounded character that is more than just her love life. I supported Sofia’s long-term goalsContinue reading “Review: Resort to Love (Paradise Key #3) by Priscilla Oliveras”

Review: Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston

I started reading romance novels in 2016, in large part due to the emotional chaos wrought by the American presidential election. Luckily, judging by McQuiston’s author note at the end of this novel, she saw a need in the general readership and persevered in filling it. This book is exactly what I needed as theContinue reading “Review: Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston”

Review: Three-Way Split (Comes in Threes #1) by Elia Winters

I binged this book in one evening with a glass of wine and some cat snuggles. Not a bad way to spend my time, and the book was an easy read that was fun to speed through and enjoy every moment. I was thoroughly invested in the individual and group dynamics of the three characters.Continue reading “Review: Three-Way Split (Comes in Threes #1) by Elia Winters”

Review: The Initiation (Filthy Rich Americans #1) by Nikki Sloane

I picked up this book on the recommendation from a writer that I enjoy, who mentioned that it was not her typical fare but that she’d really enjoyed it. The Initiation was definitely not like any romance book I’ve read so far, and I’d even argue that it’s not really a romance book. There’s plentyContinue reading “Review: The Initiation (Filthy Rich Americans #1) by Nikki Sloane”

Review: The Barista’s Beloved (River Hill #4) by Rebecca Norinne & Jamaila Brinkley

Disclaimer: I am friends with both authors; however, I purchased this ebook for full price.

Review: Reverb (Twisted Wishes #3) by Anna Zabo

Disclaimer: I consider the author a friend; however, I purchased this ebook for full price. The final book to follow the romantic escapes of the band Twisted Wishes focuses on bass player Mish Sullivan. She’s pretty much the literal definition of strong, independent woman who knows what she wants. But what she wants is differentContinue reading “Review: Reverb (Twisted Wishes #3) by Anna Zabo”

Review: The Baker’s Beauty (River Hill #3) by Rebecca Norinne & Jamaila Brinkley

Disclaimer: I am friends with the authors; however, I purcahsed this ebook for full price. Sometimes my interest in the romance between two characters takes a backseat to my interest in the development of the characters themselves. This book was sweet and enjoyable, with all the traditional romance novel tropes, but I found myself muchContinue reading “Review: The Baker’s Beauty (River Hill #3) by Rebecca Norinne & Jamaila Brinkley”

Review: The Distiller’s Darling (River Hill #2) by Rebecca Norinne & Jamaila Brinkley

Disclaimer: I am friends with the authors; however, I purcahsed this ebook for full price. I felt a bit guilty enjoying a glass of port while reading this book, but I have a feeling that I’d have loved it no matter the beverage. Iain and Naomi have almost nothing in common on the surface, butContinue reading “Review: The Distiller’s Darling (River Hill #2) by Rebecca Norinne & Jamaila Brinkley”
