Neon Gods & Electric Idol by Katee Robert | Dark Olympus #1-2

I love a good urban fantasy, though it feels like they are fewer and farther between these days. When I came across Neon Gods by Katee Roberts I was surprised I hadn’t seen it before. I love a good Greek pantheon story, and the twist of most of the seats being elected was super interesting! So thanks to my trusty library, I settled in during vacation to this futuristic vision of Olympus. The series starts off with the story of Hades and Persephone (because of course). Persephone is the daughter of Demeter and has three other sisters (also themed after […]

The Honeymoon Crasher by Christina Lauren | Review

This was cute! I hadn’t listened to an audiobook in a looong time prior to this, but I was curious about it and thought I heard it was only available via audio (?) and when Spotify Premium informed me that I had access to audiobooks through my subscription, I thought why not? And proceeded to put it on during a day of catching up on chores around the house. And it was so good! I think this was my first audiobook with a full cast and it made SUCH a difference (normally I feel sort of second-hand cringe when a […]

Bride by Ali Hazelwood | ARC Review

When I heard Ali Hazelwood was dipping her toe into romantasy/paranormal romance, I was excited but stoked! I adore all of her STEM romances and since enemies to lovers is my favorite trope ever in romance novels, Bride quickly shot to the top of my list of most anticipated reads of 2024. I was beyond thrilled when I was reached out to by the publisher about an ARC and joining the blog tour, and am happy to say that Bride keeps the trademark Hazelwood wit, humor and writing style with the fun twist of a paranormal, urban fantasy setting (that […]

Love, Me by Jessica Saunders | ARC Review

*Thank you to NetGalley and the Publisher for providing an ARC for review!* While admittedly (in my opinion) more “women’s fiction” than romance, I was fully captivated by this debut novel by Jessica Saunders that explores the forbidden “what if” you ran into your high school ex fantasy. However, the twist here is what if your high school ex was now a highly popular celebrity? I live for this kind of drama in my stories so this one was RIGHT up my alley. The story follows Rachel, a successful lawyer, mother of two, seemingly happily married woman who is leading […]

Happy Place by Emily Henry | Review

This was an interesting one for me. I thought I’d really enjoy it (second chance romance is a sub-genre I’m interested in exploring more) and I remember enjoying The People We Meet On Vacation quite a bit. However, this story was sort of…a downer? Protagonist Harriet arrives at her annual summer trip at her wealthy friend Sabrina’s family’s summer house in Maine (because of course) and immediately has a secret to hide- her fiance, Wyn, broke up with her months ago but she hasn’t told her friends since she doesn’t want to rock the boat and dissolve their mutual friend […]

Things We Left Behind by Lucy Score | Review

Do you ever read a series and find yourself constantly drawn to the secondary characters instead of the protagonists? This has been me with Sloane and Lucian in the Knockemout series by Lucy Score. I kid you not, when I went back to look at all of my highlighted sections from the first two books on my Kindle, they were literally ALL passages with interactions between Sloane and Lucian! Their tension leapt off the page through two entire books, so I was ELATED to finally have my greedy little hands on their story the day it was released on Kindle […]


Fourth Wing by Rebecca Yarros | The Best Book of 2023?

Fourth Wing by Rebecca Yarros | The Best Book of 2023?

Is it a bold claim to already have my favorite book of the year picked out in July? Definitely. Do I think Fourth Wing might really be that girl? Absolutely. When I tell you I ordered this book on an absolute WHIM, I am not exaggerating. Long story short, I basically had a credit to use on a book and nothing was really calling out to me that I felt the urge to own a physical copy of, but I had heard of the hype surrounding this one and decided to give it a shot. I assumed it was going […]

Romance Mini Reviews | You Had Me At Hola and Things We Hide From the Light

I think my reading experience with You Had Me at Hola is really very much a case of it not being the right book at the right time for me. I really, truly wanted to like it. It was one of my most anticipated reads of 2020 and everything from the synopsis and cover seemed right up my alley. However, when it actually came time to read You Had Me at Hola, I just found myself wishing it wasn’t a romance. I liked Jasmine and loved her “Leading Lady Plan” to focus more on her career and less on needing […]

Ciao for Now by Kate Bromley | ARC Review

When a book is pitched to me with The Lizzie McGuire movie as a comp title, it would be illegal for me not to read it. Therefore, it’s was practically a foregone conclusion that I was going to enjoy Ciao for Now, a romance set in Italy featuring an aspiring fashion designer and a broody screenwriter. However, I didn’t anticipate just how much I was going to enjoy a new novel from a new to me novel- so much so that I’m immediately adding all of Kate Bromley’s backlist titles to my TBR list! First off, this book came out […]

Love, Theoretically by Ali Hazelwood | ARC Review

I am quickly becoming an Ali Hazelwood stan, as her BOOKS.DON’T.MISS. Thought I have my favorites over others, every time I pick up one of her romance novels, I am completely transported into a story with steam and science- an amazing combination! I consider myself #blessed that I continue to be approved for ARCs of her novels via NetGalley, and Love, Theoretically is one of the best romances I’ve read in 2023 (and I’ve read mostly romances this year). First off, I am sooooo happy that all of her novels are set in one universe, and I am absolutely delighted […]
