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!
What a fun sexy read! A Good Man is the first in a series about three brothers and their home renovation show set in Toronto. This book focuses on Michael and Emily "Em" Daniels who, along with her terrible fiance, is their latest participant on the show. Neither Em or Michael are in any kind of position to act on their initial attraction and they certainly weren't looking for each other, but find each other they did.
This book. I loved it so, so much. After discovering, very publicly, that her boyfriend had been three-timing her, Samiah Brooks - along with her two new also-were-cheated-on-by-Craig friends - has sworn off men to focus on herself and her career. Of course it's then that she meets the gorgeous new guy at her office, Daniel Collins.
It's magnificent. It's bananas. It's everything I've always wanted in a romance. I loved every moment of The Virgin and the Rogue, from the outrageous sexy times to tender moments of understanding to the raw confrontation of feelings Charlotte and Kingston would rather ignore.
Like many other Julia Quinn fans, I'd been eagerly awaiting the release of First Comes Scandal for nearly a year and a half before it came out. I was lucky enough to be approved for an ARC, so I actually received it in March and was SO excited! Unfortunately, this one just didn't blow me away.
