I devoured and finished it less than a day, which I rarely do it. I loved it. Very few books manage to make me addicted, so I was ecstatic to find the book that made me that way. What is the story about? It is about a woman named Camilla who lost everything. After losing her husband in a car accident, she found out a heart-breaking truth about what her husband had been doing his […]

The story is about family, loss, love, and forgiveness. It starts with a sudden, heartbreaking loss of Savannah’s brother Tommy Dugas who was a UFC fighter. The conflict arises when the man who was the cause of her brother’s death, Michael […]

Book Review – Egomaniac by Vi Keeland

Genres: Adult, Contemporary Romance Standalone/Series: Standalone Published on: January 14, 2017 Pages: 289 Source: Purchased Rating: 4 STARS Buy on Amazon This book is exactly what I was in the mood for. It is hilarious and refreshing at the same time, with a great combination of comedy, a little angst and plenty of emotional touches toward the end. It made me smile, laugh and in an emotional state that I always wanted to experience in reading a love story. What is the story about? It is about a single, workaholic man and woman that seem to not have a thing in common. He is a successfully divorced attorney, […]

Book Review – Under Locke by Mariana Zapata

Genres: Adult, Contemporary Romance Standalone/Series: Standalone Published on: January 19, 2014 Pages: 497 Source: Purchased Rating: 4.5 STARS Buy on Amazon My first introduction to Mariana Zapata’s writing was through The Wall of Winnipeg and Me. Later at the end of last month, I devoured her Wait For Me and Kulti, and I was again hooked. I’d fallen head over heels in love with her writing, characters, and stories. That is the reason I decided to read her previous books, started with Under Locke. Guys, she is amazing!!! I got the same feelings. A lot of people can write, but Mariana Zapata CAN WRITE and an amazing story-teller. What is the […]

Book Review – It’s You (It’s You #2) by Katy Regnery

Genres: Adult, Paranormal Romance Standalone/Series: Standalone Published on: January 17, 2017 Pages: 258 Source: Purchased Rating: 3 STARS Buy on Amazon This book follows the story from the earlier book, that’s why we need to read the previous book (book 1) before jumping into this one. I grabbed this book right after it was published because I couldn’t wait to see what would happen to Darcy and Jack. You can read my review of the previous book here. So, what about it? I might be in the minority here. I didn’t enjoy this book as much as I did the previous book. The previous one was not perfect, I did […]

Book Review – It’s You (It’s You #1) by Katy Regnery

Genres: Adult, Paranormal Romance Standalone/Series: Series Published on: January 3, 2017 Pages: 246 Source: Purchased Rating: 3.5 STARS Buy on Amazon This book was the first paranormal book that I read after more than a year reading full of contemporary romance books. It marked my comeback to my paranormal root which had been the genre that made me fall in love with reading novels in the first place. Thanks to Twilight. You know what? I enjoyed it. After devouring contemporary romance for a long time, I think it’s time for me to try another genre. To be honest, I wasn’t sure what I was getting into when I picked up this book […]

Genres: Adult, Contemporary Romance Standalone/Series: Standalone Published on: January 3, 2017 Pages: 440 Source: Purchased Rating: 4 STARS Buy on Amazon Are you a fan of Cinderella’s story? If you, like me, love a story of a beautiful girl who lives a hard life but eventually finds her prince charming, then this book is for you. Since I love alpha, bad boy/guy, hot as hell with dirty mouth kind of Prince Charming, you can say that I love this story. In fact, I love ALL of the kinds of prince charming. They could be dressed good and loaded with money, or in boots and on motorcycles, or just plain […]

Book Review – Naughty Boss by Whitney G.

Genres: Adult, Contemporary Romance Standalone/Series: Standalone Published on: December 15, 2016 Pages: 127 Source: Purchased Rating: 3 STARS Buy on Amazon I enjoyed the first half of this book. It was funny that I couldn’t stop laughing. I even highlighted lots of their funny interactions including email exchanges that I loved. So, what is the story about? The story follows the life of an executive assistant, Mya London, who worked for a top publishing company, where the CEO was irresistibly handsome, Michael Leighton. However, she didn’t enjoy her work because of how he treated her. He was very demanding and arrogant. That is why she eventually sent an email, […]

Book Review – Big Rock by Lauren Blakely

Genres: Adult, Contemporary Romance Standalone/Series: Standalone Published on: January 6, 2016 Pages: 244 POV: First person POV from the male Source: Purchased Rating: 3 STARS Buy on Amazon Honestly, I have mixed feelings about this book, but I want to say what I love first. It was my first time reading a story that was told from the male point of view. I am used to reading female POVs or double POVs but have never experienced pure male POVs before. You know what? It was awesome. I could not stop laughing. The fact that he was a very successful, handsome man and very proud of himself as well made […]

Book Review – Wait For It by Mariana Zapata

Genres: Adult, Contemporary Romance Standalone/Series: Standalone Published on: December 7, 2016 Pages: 662 POV: Dual first person POV Source: Purchased Rating: 5 STARS Buy on Amazon The title perfectly describes both the meaning of the story and what you would feel as you read it. We do really need to wait for it, wait for the story to be at what we’ve been waiting for: the romance to blossom. It is a 955-page book that took me two and a half days to finish, especially around Christmas. It was hard when, after a day and a half, reaching 50% and it was not fully there. The romance I meant. Very slow-burn […]

Book Review – Take Me With You by Nina G. Jones

Genres: Adult, Contemporary Romance Standalone/Series: Standalone Published on: October 15, 2016 Pages: 378 Source: Purchased Rating: 4.5 STARS Buy on Amazon Wow. What an emotional roller coaster I had been. This story had put me in a terrifying yet consuming world that I always crave in dark reads, although I had to take a break, catch my breath many times, to make sure I was ready to continue. It blew my mind within the first few pages and messed with my mind in a way that I had to countlessly rethink whether I wanted to finish it or not. What is the story about? It was a man named […]

Book Review – On The Island by Tracey Garvis-Graves

Genres: Adult, Contemporary Romance Standalone/Series: Standalone Published on: June 7, 2012 Pages: 352 Source: Purchased Rating: 4.5 STARS Buy on Amazon Are you into forbidden love stories? This one is for you. I love stories that push the envelope, confront the traditional beliefs of what love should be. This story, in my opinion, reflects that. The story was about a 30-year-old woman, Anna, who was offered to tutor a 16-year-old boy, T.J. Callahan at his family summer rental at the Maldives. She accepted the job, and they en route to join T.J.’s family in the Maldives when the pilot of their seaplane suffered a fatal heart attack and crash-landed […]

Genres: Young Adult, Contemporary Romance Standalone or Series: Standalone Published on: March 15, 2016 Pages: 316 POV: Dual first person POV Source: Purchased Rating: 5 STARS Buy on Amazon I want to share one of my all-time favorites, a Thousand Boy Kisses by Tillie Cole. This is one of my favorites in 2016. I’ve read this book since the day it was published but just being able to review it now. I can’t forget this book. This book had me ugly cries for hours after reading it. Since very few books have the power to make me sob, you can see how special this book is. This is a young […]
