Good Friends Never Say Good-bye

May 22, 2018 Features 6

Hey y’all ūüėÄ It’s been a while. I know that I’ve been posting sporadically or not at all over the last three months. I’m sorry for that. Today I’m here to tell you why. I have been an avid reader since I was a little girl. I enjoy reading everything from the classics to hard science fiction to high fantasy to contemporary romance. I honestly love it all. I always have. It’s only one of the reasons I decided to start the blog in 2014. Over the last year though, I’ve really struggled. As the title suggests, I’m burnt out… Read more »

Review: Perfectly Misunderstood by Robin Daniels

Review: Perfectly Misunderstood by Robin Daniels

May 8, 2018 Reviews 0

The Perfect Series is coming to a close with ‘s¬†Perfectly Misunderstood.¬†While I’m sad to see the series end, this book was a perfect conclusion. Featuring two characters who cannot stand each other,¬†Perfectly Misunderstood¬†reminds me a little of a contemporary¬†Pride and Prejudice. Sassy, fun, and oh so sweet, I guarantee you will fall in love with Jayden and Mike’s story. At the beginning of this book, Jayden is struggling. She’s your typical straight-A student who is failing (well if you call C a failing) Spanish. She’s driven and determined, and knows her father will kill her if she doesn’t get that… Read more »

May 3, 2018 Reviews 0

Seducing Kaden, an all-new taboo romance from USA Today bestselling author is available NOW! Seducing Kaden¬†is the latest installment of by . I have to start by saying I was excited and hesitant to read this book. Why? Kaden has been a mystery the entire series. From shady dealings in a back alley to fighting with Keven, Kaden has intrigued me. Then I got a taste of the blurb and found out that his romance was not only forbidden but taboo to the extreme….a married professor?! Really, Kaden could do better in my mind. Now those were my thoughts going… Read more »

Blog Tour: From the Earth to the Shadows by Amanda Hocking

April 23, 2018 Reviews 2

Some reviews are really hard to write. This is one of them. While I enjoyed aspects of¬†From the Earth to the Shadows,¬†others I didn’t, making this just an okay read for me. I was on the fence about reading this one simply because of my feelings about the first book¬†Between the Blade and the Heart. But after how it ended, I wanted to continue the series and find out what would happen to Malin, Asher, and their friends. From the Earth to the Shadows¬†picks up three days after the end of the first book. I liked this because it meant… Read more »
