Meant to Be Mine by Hannah Orenstein | ARC Review

In a market that’s super saturated with romance novels, Meant to Be Mine had a premise that instantly caught my eye. How does one navigate life, dating, romance, and feelings when you know you won’t meet your predestined match until a certain date? This is a classic fate vs. choice premise, and it made for a thoroughly fascinating story. As stated in the premise, Edie’s beloved grandmother has an (arguably) supernatural knack for matchmaking, and has successfully predicted dozens (if not more) matches via the date they will meet. Edie, who has always greatly admired her grandmother and seeks to […]

Go Hex Yourself by Jessica Clare | ARC Review

I’m a huge fan of paranormal witch stories, and the fact that witchy rom-coms are popular right now is making my little book blogger heart burst with joy! Therefore, when I had the opportunity to read Go Hex Yourself, I couldn’t say no! Following down on her luck but still optimistic Reggie and seemingly dark and dangerous warlock Ben, this grumpy-sunshine romance checked all the boxes of what I was looking for in a cute, quick romance with some intriguing lore around magic and curses. Romance wise, Go Hex Yourself is serviceable, but Reggie and Ben’s love story isn’t one […]

The No-Show by Beth O’Leary | ARC Review

I can never resist a romance novel that combines an interesting synopsis with an adorably illustrated cover, so I knew I had to read The No-Show by Beth O’Leary, even adding it to my Most Anticipated Reads of the First Half of 2022 list. I was thrilled to be approved on NetGalley to read what I thought was going to be an anti-romance, John Tucker Must Die type of story…and let’s just say while the story was compelling, I was way off base in my predictions! The story follows three female protagonists who all have the same love interest but […]

Running Wild by K.A. Tucker (Wild #3)

I cannot even begin to explain to you how much I love this series, this setting, this world. The Simple Wild duology (+novella) is one of my FAVORITE all time contemporary/romance series, and one that I had to buy physical copies of for my home library after digitally borrowing for my library (not something I do that often these days, as the past few years I’ve shifted more toward focusing on e-books). When I found out K.A. Tucker was returning to her fictional Alaskan world to focus on Marie of all characters (IYKYK) I couldn’t help but anticipate it was […]

Made in Manhattan by Lauren Layne | ARC Review

I’ll admit, the cute cover of this novel was what drew me to it on NetGalley. Coupled with the Gossip Girl-esque setting (which is my forever reference point for books set in bougie New York society, sorry but that’s what being a teen in the early aughts will do to you) I decided to request on a whim and hope for the best. I was pleased to discover that Made in Manhattan is a super cute, fun romance that was honestly just what I needed after struggling with an urban fantasy book that I eventually DNF’d. Made in Manhattan follows […]

Ramon and Julieta by Alana Albertson | ARC Review

Every year I try and make it a priority to read several books by Latinx authors and/or books that feature Latinx characters, and I’m pleased that I got to kick off 2022 with Ramón and Julieta! Not only was I getting to dive into a diverse romance set in San Diego, but I was intrigued that it was a retelling as well! Add in a stunning cover and a focus on food and I was so excited to read this one! Beginning on Día de los Muertos, Ramón and Julieta follows romantic protagonists from two very different walks of life, […]

Romance Mini Reviews | The Love Hypothesis and Witch Please

I feel like I haven’t heard of a contemporary romance getting this much hype since The Hating Game. After what felt like an unbearably long library wait, I finally got to dive into this graduate school set romance and when I tell you I was addicted, I mean it! I love books set in college (though I still feel as though there’s a huge lack of) and I’ve never read a book set in grad school, so that alone made this one really unique! I loved Olive, loved her determination, her naivety, her dedication to her research and her pursuing […]

Romance Reviews: Heartbreak for Hire and The Soulmate Equation

Heartbreak for Hire has a really unique yet bizarre premise: a company of women who are hired to exact revenge on men who have wronged women. It’s a little crazy to wrap your head around at first, but once you adequately suspend your disbelief it’s intriguing to see how such a company would operate and the moral/ethical questions it poses. The story follows protagonist Brinkley, secret artist and failed (at least in her mother’s eyes) academic who thinks she is healing her own heart through the work she is doing to take down men with “egos” for the company. Since […]

People We Meet on Vacation by Emily Henry | ARC Review

After roughly a year and a half in Covid quarantine, People We Meet on Vacation was such a wonderful, romantic escape. Detailing the reunion of estranged best friends Poppy and Alex, People We Meet on Vacation flawlessly alternates between present and past timelines, showcasing amazing vacations while also building an authentic, riveting, heartbreaking relationship and legitimately exploring the often mocked “millennial ennui.” I read Beach Read last year and thought it was pretty good, but People We Meet on Vacation truly tugged on my heartstrings. Poppy and Alex’s story was lyrical yet bold, and Henry simultaneously works backwards, starting off […]

The Simple Wild + Wild At Heart + Forever Wild | Reviews

I’ve had The Simple Wild on my radar for a few years now- I feel like it would always pop up on Goodreads as one of my friends was either reading or raving about it (or both!) I knew it was a romance set in Alaska, but that was honestly the extent of my knowledge. I have been having some trouble finding my groove my romance novels lately so I was a little hesitant going in, afraid it was going to be yet another romance everyone loved that I ended up having to DNF. However, I shouldn’t have worried because […]
