ARC Review | The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren

The Unhoneymooners was a book that I was highly anticipating, and it did not disappointment. This is only my third Christina Lauren book, but I am loving their writing. The Unhoneymooners is a book that you can easily read in a day. And it will bring a huge smile on your face. The Story The Unhoneymooners is about Olive and Ethan. Olive is Amy’s twin sister and Ethan is Amy’s husband’s brother. The story began on Amy’s wedding day. When everything that could go wrong DOES. But in a way that was totally Amy’s fault. She won her entire wedding on sweepstakes (I also need to know her secrets because I hardly win anything). The entire wedding party comes down with a type of food poisoning except for Olive and Ethan because Olive is allergic to seafood and Ethan hates buffets. This really kicks off the story, so it was […]

Blog Tour  |  Boyfriend Bargain by Ilsa Madden-Mills

If you’ve followed my blog for a while, then you know that I absolutely love hockey romances even though I’ve never seen a hockey game in my life. I also have a deep love for fake dating, and it is one of my favorite tropes and Boyfriend Bargain had both of my favorite things. Boyfriend Bargain is a heartfelt college romance. I found myself intrigued from the first page. I was expecting a very light hearted read which is kind of what I was looking for but I’m glad Boyfriend Bargain delivered something deeper. Although, I thought the story could have gone just a little bit deeper. I loved Z and Sugar together. Their banter and chemistry were totally amazing, and I couldn’t put my phone down while reading. I also developed a true love for Eric and Julia, and I hope they get their own story because I definitely […]

ARC Review | Forgiven by Carrie Aarons

Forgiven is the second book in The Nash Brothers Series. You do not need to read Fleeting to read Forgiven but personally, I would recommend reading Fleeting. You get a bit of the backstory in Fleeting that helps set up Forgiven. This is a second chance romance between high school sweethearts. The Story We met Lily and Bowen in Fleeting. We were also privy to the fact that both of these had a history. Lily and Bowen were high school sweethearts who were madly in love; they had their future planned out. It wasn’t until one night ten years ago that Lily and Bowen were in a terrible car accident that scared both of them with scars that are both visible and some that aren’t. Lily has no clue how one night could destroy everything they had together, she was mainly looking for closure. She’s confused about the break up […]

Excerpt + Giveaway | Ms. Baker by Lea Coll

Excerpt He came to a stop in front of me and looked down at me with an intense expression. “Is that true, Samantha?” I tried to ignore the butterflies in my stomach and everyone’s eyes on me. “I brought your favorite—blueberry muffins,” I said, thrusting the box in his hands. I continued, “I made these especially for you.” I said quietly, my face turning red from the other guys’ attention. This was out of character for me, but after our conversation the other night, I needed to show Jack how I felt. Several of the guys groaned, but then walked back to the basketball court, leaving us alone. “You know my favorite pastry?” He asked, his lips twitching now with the beginning of a smile. I rolled my eyes, relaxing a bit with his teasing. “I’ve paid attention. Don’t get a big head.” “I asked because I think I love […]

ARC Review | Fleeting by Carrie Aarons

It all started with a dog who ate a pair of lace pink underwear. Fleeting is the first book in The Nash Brothers series. Fleeting is about the oldest Nash brother, Keaton. This is a small town romance where the hometown vet meets the city girl. I have read many of Carrie Aaron’s books and I have watched her grow as an author and I would say The Nash Brothers is probably be one of my favorite books by Carrie. I really enjoyed Fleeting. It is the perfect book to read in a day ESPECIALLY if you are in a reading slump. The story grabs you from beginning to end. The Story The story takes place in Fawn Hill. It is a very small town where everyone knows everything and everyone. There is no such thing as a secret because everyone is up in your business. I really loved the […]

Review | Sugar Rush by Bella Emy

Sugar Rush is the second book in the Single On Valentine’s Day series. You do not need to read the first book Seven Minutes in Heaven to read Sugar Rush. Office Romances aren’t really my favorite trope. I haven’t found one that makes me really love this trope so you have recs please send them my way. This also includes friends to lovers trope, which is one of my favorite tropes EVER. And this one was pretty well done. Just like Seven Minutes In Heaven, Sugar Rush takes place around Valentine’s Day. Now I’m not sure if they all are taking place in the same time period or if they are in different years but other than being involved in the same series and the central idea of Single Status (the dating service for singles on Valentine’s day) I feel like you can read the entire series in any order. […]

Review | Seven Minutes in Heaven by K.G. Reuss

As you’ve heard me rant for the past couple months, I have been in a reading slump. I was searching through Kindle Unlimited and was just praying that one book would stand out to me and help me break this rut I am in. Seven Minutes In Heaven kept me up all night reading. First thing the title automatically caught my attention. It was catchy and it made me want to find out how this was going to work in a New Adult setting. Then I read the synopsis and I was intrigued and automatically borrowed it. Seven Minutes In Heaven is the beginning of the Single On Valentine’s Day series that is written by thirteen authors. Each book can be read as a standalone but is certain around the same concept. The Story Single Status is a dating service for those who are single on Valentine’s Day. It is […]

Mini Reviews: McLoughlin Brothers Trilogy by Emma Tharp

Moving On is the first series in the McLoughlin Brothers Trilogy. It was a very quick friends to lovers / enemies to lovers book. The story begins in Ireland. Braeden is on vacation when he runs into Scarlette who is also in Ireland on her own. Her grandmother wasn’t able to make the trip with her but she wanted to continue the trip with her. Scarlette is going through a rough time, she just broke up with her boyfriend she is also in another country by herself and her luggage is lost! Isn’t that rotten luck? Moving On is told in Scarlette’s point of view only. She was a good narrator I did enjoy the writing and the story. Braeden is one of Scarlette’s friend’s exes. This was actually handled VERY WELL and made me like the story a lot more. Moving On was definitely a quick lighthearted read that […]

ARC Review | The Tenth Girl by Carrie Aarons

My first impressions of The Tenth Girl were that this cover is gorgeous. Carrie Aarons is the queen of gorgeous covers. I’ve read quite a few of Carrie Aarons novels and know that I can expect something light and quick. I’m just a little worried because Carrie writes more New Adult and this is Young Adult. But I’m excited to see what she does in The Tenth Girl. The Story The premise of The Tenth Girl reminded me slightly of my favorite movie ever She’s All That except this one is a bit messier. The bet in She’s All That is taking the most unpopular girl in school and making her the prom queen. The bet in The Tenth Girl is a group of football players making a bet to sleep with 10 girls before senior year and they win this key to a popular hang out in town. The […]

Release Day Blitz | You’re The One I Don’t Want by Carrie Aarons

First Thoughts before starting You’re The One I Don’t Want: I am really excited to read about Annabelle and Boone’s story. There were a few clues about their story in The Tenth Girl and it left me wanting more. The Story You’re The One I Don’t Want is a companion novel to The Tenth Girl. You definitely don’t need to read The Tenth Girl to read this. The story picks up a couple years after The Tenth Girl ends. Annabelle is in college and about to graduate. She’s also on a reality show similar to flipping houses. Boone is just drafted to Austin’s Triple A team and is also working towards finishing his degree before he makes it to the big leagues. I really loved how Carrie showed both Annabelle and Boone working towards their careers and also focusing on school. I feel like sometimes college-based characters never go to […]
