Book Review – Preston’s Honor by Mia Sheridan

Genres: Adult, Contemporary Romance Standalone/Series: Standalone Published on: February 18, 2017 Pages: 432 Source: Purchased Rating: 3.5 STARS Buy on Amazon This story is a standalone, second-chance romance inspired by the Gemini sign in Mia Sheridan’s signs of love series. I love Mia Sheridan and have read almost all her books, which I loved and enjoyed. Her writing is deep and captivating and makes me subconsciously immersed to the story. I’ve never had a problem with her writing and she is one of the authors that I adore and love… My one-click author. What is the story about? Annalia Del Valle and the twin brothers, Preston and Cole Sawyer had […]

Book Review – Debt by Nina G. Jones

Genres: Adult, Contemporary Romance Standalone or Series: Standalone Published on: December 2, 2014 Pages: 467 POV: Dual first person POV Source: Purchased Rating: 5 STARS! Buy on Amazon OMG.. One of the best books I’ve read so far. Period! I’ve never felt this level of being consumed and connected in a long time, reading wise. In a very rare occasion, I had found myself rereading a book right after I was finished reading it and even got excited all over again even though I’d already known how it would go. My heart was over the place and I was in the state of emotional roller coaster I’ve been longing for. […]

Book Review – Riveted (Saints of Denver #3) by Jay Crownover

Genres: Adult, Contemporary Romance Standalone/Series: Standalone (part of a series) Published on: February 14, 2017 Pages: 368 Source: Purchased Rating: 4 STARS Buy on Amazon Wow… This book has the power to make you completely immersed in the story without even realizing it. I was feeling like I was in the story, not the one who was reading it, since the very first page. It was getting better as I turned the pages and turned out to be completely the opposite of what I’d had in mind. What is it about? It follows an outstanding girl named Dixie. She is sweet and selfless… the kind of girl that […]

Favorite Series – Saints of Denver Series by Jay Crownover

I’ve just read a book from this series that I LOVED. The writing is awesome! I’m planning to read all the books in this series especially since the newest will be released in a few months. I highly recommend this series. Each book can be read standalone since each follows a different couple in interconnected stories. About Book 1: Sometimes you have to tear everything down to build something new… Sayer Cole is frozen inside. At least, that’s what it’s felt like for as long as she can remember. She’s yet to let anyone past her icy exterior – and the one guy she thinks might melt […]

Book Review – Mack Daddy by Penelope Ward

Book Review – Mack Daddy by Penelope Ward

Genres: Adult, Contemporary Romance Standalone/Series: Standalone Published on: February 11, 2017 Pages: 282 Source: Purchased Rating: 3.5 STARS Buy on Amazon This book has all the feels that I always look for in second-chance romance: sexy, funny, and not overly angsty. It had me from the very first page; my heart was pounding with excitement and anticipation that I’d rarely experienced in reading second-chance romance. I’m usually very critical on why the main characters were separated in the past and if the reasons aren’t convincing, I rarely enjoy them. In addition to it, I don’t like an overly angsty story when the purpose is sole to make excuses […]

Book Review – Heat Wave by Karina Halle

Genres: Adult, Contemporary Romance Standalone/Series: Standalone Published on: November 16, 2016 Pages: 307 Source: Purchased Rating: 3 STARS Buy on Amazon Second-chance romance, great angst, hot hero, and forbidden love story are the elements that I love in a story. I was ECSTATIC when I found out that this book has those elements. In addition to it, the author is Karina Halle; I loved her previous books. How in this world have I not already read this book is still a mystery for me now. What is it about? Veronica Locke fell in love with Logan Shephard when she first laid her eyes on him. However, he then […]

I was intrigued after reading the synopsis and the reactions that many reviewers expressed about it, particularly, how emotional they were after reading it. Some even said that this was one of their best reads of 2017. So, I had high expectation on it. Before I explain my thoughts, let me tell you what this story is about. It follows a teenage couple, Elliot and Wade, who was very in love. Yes, Elliot […]

Genres: New Adult, Contemporary Romance Standalone/Series: Standalone (part of a series) Published on: January 31, 2017 Pages: 322 POV: Dual first person POV Source: Purchased Rating: 4 STARS Buy on Amazon Wow.. I unarguably love this book. If you are the fans of New Adult romance, this book (the series) should be your next read. I highly recommend this book and the series for those who love bad, broken boys, yet incredibly handsome and popular. If you love this kind of story, you can skip my review and go purchase the book instead (the series even better). This book is book 2 in How to Date a Douchebag Series […]

Book Review – The Studying Hours (How To Date A Douchebag #1) by Sara Ney

Genres: New Adult, Contemporary Romance Standalone/Series: Standalone (part of a series) Published on: September 13, 2016 Pages: 307 POV: Dual first person POV Source: Purchased Rating: 4 STARS Buy on Amazon I enjoyed this book so much. It is a new adult, college romance that reminds me of my first book-love, Beautiful Disaster (still loving it now), and my current favorite, the Off-Campus series. The hero reminds me a little bit of Travis. If you haven’t known yet, Travis is one of my favorite heroes. I love bad boys, players, popular boys that fall in love with the girls that are not their types, especially when the girls do […]

Favorite Series – How to Date a Douchebag Series by Sara Ney

I’m currently reading this series and totally falling in love with the writing and the stories. It is fantastic. I think the writing itself deserves 5 stars. No kidding. Each book in this series can be read standalone since each follows a different couple in interconnected stories. It is New Adult, college romance that I highly recommend. About Book 1: CRUDE. ARROGANT. A**HOLE. No doubt about it, Sebastian ‘Oz’ Osborne is the university’s most celebrated student athlete—and possibly the biggest douchebag. A walking, talking cliché, he has a filthy mouth, a fantastic body, and doesn’t give a sh*t about what you or anyone else thinks.   […]

Genres: Adult, Contemporary Romance Standalone/Series: Standalone (part of a series) Published on: December 27, 2016 Pages: 328 Source: Purchased Rating: 4 STARS Buy on Amazon Honestly, I hesitated a little bit when I decided to read this book in the beginning because of two facts. First, this is a new author to me; I was not familiar with her writing yet. Second, I kind of had already predicted where the story would go; I was afraid of being bored or even worse deciding to not finishing it. But since I was in the mood for this kind of theme, I gave it a try, and I’m glad I did. […]

Wow.. amazing series. I highly recommend this series for those who love alpha, bad heroes. Each of the book in this series can be read standalone. Go grab this series right NOW! About Book 1: Opposites in every way . . . except the one that matters Shaw Landon loved Rule Archer from the moment she laid eyes on him. Rule is everything a straight-A pre-med student like Shaw shouldn’t want—and the only person she’s never tried to please. She isn’t afraid of his scary piercings and tattoos or his wild attitude.

I’m dying here. I’m falling head over heels in love with this story. What a powerful, amazing story teller Leylah Attar is. I cannot describe enough how I feel about this book, but I’ll try my best. This story is the kind of story that you would not just enjoy and love but would stay with you long, or maybe as long as your novel reading experience after you finish reading it. I’m seriously feeling it now. It has the power like […]
