A Delicious Dilemma was a super sweet morsel of a romance, with a fiery heroine who'd do anything to save her neighborhood from the encroaching developers trying to take over and gentrify the area, and a cinnamon roll hero — who's next in line to take over one of those development companies — and who'd do anything for her.
Betting on a Duke's heart felt like an homage to older historical romances, in some ways for the better and in some ways for the worse. Dina and Aetius had great chemistry, but he was just a BIT too asshole-ish for me at times.
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).
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!
I don't read a ton of PNR - not for any real reason, it just tends to run under my radar; I plan to rectify this in 2021 - but when I saw the description for Big Bad Wolf by Suleikha Snyder, I knew I needed to get my hands on a copy. And once I did, I was not disappointed!
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.
Oh my. What a ride. Those Singh brothers are something else! I thoroughly enjoyed The Legal Affair, devouring it and The Takeover Effect (Singh Family #1) as fast as I could!
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.
I'd heard great things about The Worst Best Man from Romancelandia before I started reading, so I went into it fully expecting to enjoy it. What I wasn't expecting was that I'd have a shit-eating grin plastered on my face the entire time! Mia Sosa had me laughing out loud and falling in love at the same time. It ended up being the perfect book to read during this time.
