Review: A Real Good Lie by Kate Hawthorne

I’m a sucker for the fake relationship trope, so I was excited that one of my favorite romance writers came out with a new book featuring just that thing. Though this novel is less kinky than some of Hawthorne’s other works, it still features the excellent writing, characterization, and storytelling I’ve come to expect fromContinue reading “Review: A Real Good Lie by Kate Hawthorne”

Review: Lonely Hearts Series by Kate Hawthorne

This post includes reviews of the currently available books in the Lonely Hearts series: His Kind of Love (#1) The Colors Between Us (#2) Love Comes After (#3) Until You Say Otherwise (#4) His Kind of Love (Book 1) This dark romance is deceptive, in that even as I was low-key horrified at the depthsContinue reading “Review: Lonely Hearts Series by Kate Hawthorne”

Review: Dual Destruction (Duality #1) by Kate Hawthorne

This book verges on dark romance territory only because of the love-hate dynamic between the two heroes, including the levels and limits (or lack thereof) to their sexual relationship. I highly recommend reading the free prequel available on the author’s website, “Dual Hostilities,” to see whether these characters may be up your alley. It isContinue reading “Review: Dual Destruction (Duality #1) by Kate Hawthorne”

Review: May the Best Man Win by J.R. Gray & Kate Hawthorne

I’m already a solid fan of Hawthorne, but a friend encouraged me to also check out works by Gray, so this seemed like the perfect option. This book is a fun enemies-to-lovers romance with a dash of kink and plenty of wedding shenanigans, so basically lots of my favorite things. Jasper and Lincoln grew onContinue reading “Review: May the Best Man Win by J.R. Gray & Kate Hawthorne”

Review: Mallory Vineyard Series by Kate Hawthorne & E.M. Denning

Future Fake Husband (Book 1) This book is chock-full of fun romance tropes, including fake relationship, a relationship for external reasons, and of course, “there’s only one bed!” Despite these multiple familiar scenarios, the book managed to include plenty of unique elements that I enjoyed. Both Cole and Rhett are solid characters dedicated to theirContinue reading “Review: Mallory Vineyard Series by Kate Hawthorne & E.M. Denning”

Review: Unfettered by Kate Hawthorne

This book is connected to the Room for Love series by the same author (and connects with E.M. Lindsey’s On the Market series) but can easily be read as a stand-alone. However, I am glad that I have the full context of Beau’s relationship with his brothers for the few scenes that involve them. BeauContinue reading “Review: Unfettered by Kate Hawthorne”

Review: Cloudy With a Chance of Love by E.M. Lindsey, Kate Hawthorne & E.M. Denning

After meeting these three characters in another book, showing them enjoying their happily ever after, I had to know how they reached that point. I was not disappointed by their love story. On the surface, Collin, Spencer, and Max lead very different lives. They run the spectrum from age to education to income, but noneContinue reading “Review: Cloudy With a Chance of Love by E.M. Lindsey, Kate Hawthorne & E.M. Denning”
