Oh wow my heart. 🥺 I somehow managed not to cry while reading this in public, but it was a close thing. These two. 🥺❤️😳🥺
I’ll be honest, I wasn’t sure if my heart was going to survive this one. I’ve been excited to read more about Naomi since the moment she was introduced in The Roommate and then! Then to be paired with an adorably awkward and face-fanningly hot rabbi, I mean come on. I couldn’t resist.
Oh my gosh this book. How do I even begin to articulate how much I ADORED it? In summary: I Just Really Really Love Wesley Koehler, Okay?
I really liked The Dating Plan! It was lighthearted and funny some moments then a little dark and heartbreaking at others (don’t worry – definitely still a HEA, and I feel much more comfortable calling this a rom-com than a lot of other books that have been billed as such).
Okay, so you know that book that you’ve built up in your head and have super high expectations for and then when you finally get to read it, it falls flat? Yeah, this was not that book!
Yes and I loved this book! Hollyn and Jasper were so perfectly imperfect and 100% made for each other. Also…the sex is really hot. So there’s that.
Enemies to Lovers is one of my absolute favorite tropes, so you can imagine my excitement when this anthology was announced. A diverse, well-rounded collection of steamy enemies to lovers with lots of secret pining?? Yes please!
So far January has delivered all sorts of tasty enemies/rivals to lovers, and The Ex Talk might just take the cake. And I love cake. A definite win for me!
This is an absolutely freaking adorable intial-misunderstanding-to-ongoing-antagonism-to-maybe-I-misjudged-you-to-oh-crap-I-love-you romance! Henley and Graeme are super cute (I think I’m legitimately in love with Graeme?) and Henley’s sister Walsh and would-be admirer Nikolai are wonderfully memorable.
So Alyssa Cole is just a fantastic writer and there were parts of How to Catch a Queen that were absolutely fabulous, but unfortunately there were also aspects that made it hard to enjoy fully.
