Name Your Favorite Romance Tropes

Ranking is completely out of the question. I have a handicap when it comes to making up my mind about things that are relatively inconsequential -- as opposed to jumping on important decisions without always thinking them through (cough, student loan debt), but that's another discussion. There are many that I love, although some take… Continue reading Name Your Favorite Romance Tropes

Review: Forbidden To Love by Siobhan Davis

This is a standalone written in the world of Condemned To Love, which is one of my favorite books, so I couldn’t wait for this release and it did not disappoint. Natalia and Leo’s story was even more tragic than expected but wow, did they blow me away. The only daughter of the Mazzone don,… Continue reading Review: Forbidden To Love by Siobhan Davis

Review: Angry God by LJ Shen

Vaughn Spencer was the brooding jerk in the background of the other books in this series, so I hadn’t given him much thought until his book came along but, wow. There’s so much more to Vaughn than I imagined. LJ Shen really brings this character to life. He’s tortured and vengeful, passionate and dark, I… Continue reading Review: Angry God by LJ Shen

Review: Make You Beg by Shantel Tessier

This book is dark but it’s so very good. Think Cruel Intentions from Siobhan Davis or Corrupt from Penelope Douglas. The one drawback here is it’s a standalone and I would love to have more. Henley is a force to be reckoned with in so many ways but she has a one weakness she struggles… Continue reading Review: Make You Beg by Shantel Tessier

Review: The Deal by Elle Kennedy

I wasn’t expecting much from another college fake-relationship trope but actually loved this story. Hannah and Garrett seem like opposites at first, but end up having lots in common. They both have traumatic pasts and live secrets because of it, so it was really sweet when they started opening up to each other. Hannah is… Continue reading Review: The Deal by Elle Kennedy

Review: All The Way by Kendall Ryan

This is a unique take on friends-to-lovers. It’s a sweet story and I really couldn’t get enough of Owen and Becca. This book was funny yet handled sensitive topics appropriately and doing both takes skill. They were instantly likable, Owen, for how he handled his drunken friend and Becca for being real and hilarious. There’s… Continue reading Review: All The Way by Kendall Ryan
