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?

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 […]


Ciao for Now by Kate Bromley | ARC Review

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 […]


The True Love Experiment by Christina Lauren | ARC Review

The True Love Experiment by Christina Lauren | ARC Review

I love a good Christina Lauren novel, and The True Love Experiment is one of the best they’ve put out in a long time (in my humble opinion!) I didn’t realize until I started it that it’s a companion novel to another CLo book I thoroughly enjoyed (The Soulmate Equation) but there’s something so special about The True Love Experiment that had me falling in love with Connor right alongside Fizzy. I’m admittedly a reality tv junkie (yes, I’m still watching the dumpster fire that is the Bachelor franchise at this point along with many, many other shows) so the […]

Things We Never Got Over by Lucy Score | Knockmeout #1

Where have Kindle Unlimited romances been all of my life? Because let me tell you, I am having the best time reading them! It seems like some are also increasingly getting more mainstream attention, including Things We Never Got Over, which was a Goodreads Awards Nominee for Best Romance in 2022. I had seen this title kicking around on social media so decided to download it when I went on my initial KU downloading spree at the beginning of 2023. I was not disappointed, as the book nearly perfectly satisfied my craving for a small town romance! Things We Never […]

Lovelight Farms by B.K. Borison | Lovelight #1

I decided to treat myself to a Kindle Unlimited subscription for my birthday this year, and I’m so so happy that my first read using KU was Lovelight Farms, because WOW it was amazing! I was seeing it hyped up a lot on Booktube and adored the look of the cover, so decided to give it a shot despite not usually being a fan of the friends-to-lovers romance trope. B.K Borison has converted me! Not only did I love the romance, but the Christmas Tree farm setting, the small town, the quirky cast of characters…I wish I could crawl inside […]


The STEMinist Novellas by Ali Hazelwood| Review

The STEMinist Novellas by Ali Hazelwood| Review

I’m always a bit concerned going into a novella if I’m going to really feel connected with the characters due to the limited length. I’m happy to report that in all 3 of Ali Hazelwood’s STEMinist novellas I not only enjoyed the characters and romances, I adored them. Following a trio of best friends, the first novella kicks off with Mara, an environmental engineer who’s forced by circumstance into being roommates with Liam, a lawyer for a big-oil company, pretty much making them instant enemies. Ali Hazelwood is known for her hate-to-love romances and these novellas are no exception. However, […]


Love on the Brain by Ali Hazelwood | ARC Review

Love on the Brain by Ali Hazelwood | ARC Review

Ali Hazelwood is the queen of writing hate to love romances, and Love on the Brain is no exception. Following protagonist Bee who is distinguished scientist as she teams up with her grad school arch-nemesis fellow doctor Levi Ward, Love on the Brain combines two of my favorite things when reading: a delicious romance and teaching me something new! Hazelwood’s books always focus on protagonists working in the STEM field, and this novel is no exception. Though I don’t work on the STEM field myself, I love that her works showcase not only females making strides in the STEM world […]
