Review: Roman and the Hopeless Romantic by Michelle MacQueen

Review: Roman and the Hopeless Romantic by Michelle MacQueen

Best friends….secret love….y’all put my two favorite tropes into one incredibly sweet story. Roman and the Hopeless Romantic is the second book in Macqueen’s series, and as the title suggests, follows the story of Roman Sullivan. If you’ve read book one, he should be familiar as Jesse’s flirtatious, good-natured best friend. I was really excited […]

Review: Skipping Forward by Bethany Wicker

Review: Skipping Forward by Bethany Wicker

This review first appeared on YA Book Central. Skipping Forward by is a standalone contemporary fantasy about a girl who can skip through time. This book surprised me in not being at all what I thought it would be. From the blurb, I expected an adventure romping through time. That was my fault. This book […]

Review: The Noble Guardian by Michelle Griep

Oh my heart! The Noble Guardian by is the latest installment (and last if I’m not mistaken) of series. Previously I said that The Innkeeper’s Daughter was my favorite of the series. Y’all this one blows that one out of the water! All the feels! My heart can’t take it. Samuel Thatcher’s and Abigail Gilbert’s […]

Review: Brentwood’s Ward by Michelle Griep

Review: Brentwood’s Ward by Michelle Griep

Brentwood’s Ward by is the first in that combines mystery with a touch of romance. While the series itself is based on a real profession and location in London during the late 1700s to mid-1800s, the characters and story are pure fiction. I found myself engrossed at times, missing meals to finish the book. Nicholas […]

Review: 12 Days at Bleakly Manor by Michelle Griep

Review: 12 Days at Bleakly Manor by Michelle Griep

12 Days at Bleakly Manor by is a Christmas retelling of the Dickens classic Bleakly Manor. I started this story with zero expectations but quickly fell in love with the writing style of , the mystery surrounding the manor and its guests, and the jilted romance between Ben and Clara. It reminds me a little of Agatha Christie’s And […]

Review: The Faithful One by Cami Checketts

Review: The Faithful One by Cami Checketts

I’m a sucker for overly sweet, cliché holiday romance and The Faithful One by is just that. This is the first book I’ve read in the popular series and it won’t be the last. The series follows a group of woman who as girls made a pact to marry billionaires. It was a silly promise that Trin […]
