Daring and the Duke

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.

The Devil of Downtown

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.

A Good Man

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.

The Boyfriend Project

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.

First Comes Scandal

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.

Say Yes to the Duke

There were parts of this that worked for me and parts that didn’t. I really enjoyed the banter between Viola and Devin. They had some very sweet moments and some very hot moments. While Viola’s character seemed fully formed – although her anxiety does seem to just disappear at some point in the book – I felt like we were pieces missing from Devin.
