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 & I Love You
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 : A Steamy Romance Anthology Vol 1
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!
The Ex Talk
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.
How to Catch a Queen
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.
Written in the Stars
Oh my stars! This book! I haven't both laughed and cried so much while reading a book...ever? Written in the Stars was funny, sweet, nerdy, absolutely tropetastic and pretty much perfect.
Simmer Down had its ups and downs for me; some things I really liked, others not so much. While I enjoyed the early banter and pranks Nikki and Callum pull on each other at the beginning, about a third of the way through I felt like the story started to drag.
So when Iona called Division Bells a soft political romance, they meant soft because, oh my heart. Division Bells was exactly the super short, super sweet read I needed right now.
I've been trying to figure out how to convey all my feelings about Spoiler Alert, and I'm not sure I'll succeed, but I'm gonna try. Olivia Dade writes amazing stories about fat women living their kickass lives, having great sex, and finding love and that means so much to me. It also kind of turns me into a puddle of emotion. I mean I had tears in my eyes by the damn dedication. But, like, in a good way.
