They say not to judge a book by its cover, but You Had Me at Hola's absolutely amazing cover conveys everything you need to know about Jasmine and Ashton's story: it's beautifully vibrant, heart-meltingly sweet, and panty-meltingly sensual.
Would I Lie to the Duke by Eva Leigh My rating: 5 of 5 stars You'll laugh! You'll cry! (Like, literally, I cried. Real tears. Running down my face. And I don't cry reading very often. Hit me right in the feels.) I absolutely adored Would I Lie to the Duke! (Even though it made [...]
This book was so funny and loving and GOOD. I usually prefer dual POV, but Alexis Hall did such a great job painting both Luc and Oliver through Luc's eyes that I didn't feel like I was missing too much. (Minus that one time when Luc was like "god knows what was going through his head" and I was like BOY SAME.)
Gahhhh, Olivia Waite just writes such beautiful stories! Agatha and Penelope were both absolutely fabulous in their own right and even better together. I adored all their friends and family as well, and really appreciated the evolution of Agatha and Penelope's relationships with them as well as with each other.
There were a couple of things working against Not Like the Movies for me from the start. First, it's a single POV. I'm not a big fan of single POV romances, especially if it's first-person. I really feel like we miss something by not getting all the MC's POV in romance. I need ALL the feels.
WOW. Wow, wow, wow. Have I mentioned WOW? I'm not going to lie, I had doubts about Ewan doing enough groveling to truly make this redemption arc work, but I NEVER SHOULD HAVE DOUBTED THE QUEEN. Sarah Maclean delivered the MOST satisfying grovel novel and childhood friends to enemies to lovers romance for Ewan and Grace.
I don't even know where to begin, except to say that I loved The Devil of Downtown with every inch of my heart. The Rogue of Fifth Avenue was good; The Prince of Broadway was even better. But The Devil of Downtown worked it's way into my heart with every adorable, steamy, heartbreaking, and love affirming moment between Jack and Justine - and it has taken it's place as one of my favorite romances of all time.
These two idiots....you can't not love them both. Martin is the grumpiest of the grumpy ones, Will is the gooiest of the cinnamon roll, and they've been soulmates - though never lovers - since they were young. They're so cute together and the banter is top tier Cat Sebastian. Two Rogues Make a Right is truly the ultimate friends to lovers!
I'd like to petition for an increase in potential star ratings because Take a Hint, Dani Brown deserves at LEAST 20 stars. It's a friends-to-lovers, fake relationship, grumpy one and grumpy one (but both secretly soft) dish of deliciousness.
There was so much to love about 40-Love! I enjoy everything I read from Olivia Dade, but 40-Love just hit me on such a personal level, made me laugh, and completely melted my heart!
