Sunday Update: January 27, 2019

YES, IT’S ACTUALLY SUNDAY Why yes, I’ve finally got a Sunday update up on Sunday!  It’s been another busy week, and I spent most of last night up with my sick daughter, so I’m using my caffeination time to get a few reviews finished and posted.  Coming up this week, we’ve got a hilarious romcom about a lovestruck cupid, a…

Review: Blue Hollow Falls series – Donna Kauffman

I’d read a novella set in this series as part of The Season to Celebrate anthology, and I enjoyed it so much that I had to pick up the rest of the series.  I don’t read a ton of small-town romances, but I found this series quite charming. This first book stars Sunny, who finds out, in one fell swoop,…

Review: Illegally Yours – Kate Meader

“You know what I mean,” Gideon says, annoyed. “She thought he was a perv, poured a beer on his head, flirted her ass off. Some quality meet-cute stuff there. Now she’s ready to get busy except they’ve got a Pride and Prejudice crossed with legal ethics thing going on.” This is the second book I’ve read by Kate Meader, and…

Review: The D.I.L.F. – Amy Andrews

Nurse/doctor romances are not my thing, but it’s Amy Andrews (author of quite possibly my favorite romance ever) so how could I resist?  I’m glad I didn’t, because this is an utterly over-the-top, kinda quirky, and unbelievably fun ride, with some of my favorite tropes (best friend’s sibling and forced proximity). “Connie…he’s my brother’s best friend. My kid brother. Owen…

Review: Willful Depravity – Ingrid Hahn

Content warnings: fat phobia (including heroine’s mother forcing her to diet) It’s rare, in my experience, to find a historical with a plus-sized heroine on the cover, so I jumped on this book as soon as I saw it.  True to the cover, this is an erotic romance with a delightful fuck-buddies-to-lovers story line, starring a plus-sized heroine and a…

Sunday Update: January 20, 2019

STILL NOT SUNDAY? Yup, posting this update on Monday is becoming a bad habit!  I got all caught up in the long weekend (my kids actually have a four day weekend!) and forgot to schedule this for Sunday, so, here we are!  Coming up this week, a historical featuring a plus-sized beauty, a delightful hilarious lawyer romance, and a smoking hot…

Review: Unmarriageable – Soniah Kamal

A retelling of Pride & Prejudice set in Pakistan?  Yes, yes, a thousand yes’s!  From meeting Mr. Darcy and Bungles at the Pakistani wedding of the year, to talking about partition and the place of English literature in Pakistani history, this is an amazing reimagining of my favorite Austen book. “I want,” Mrs. Binat announced, “the girls to fish for…

A Slice of Magic

Review: A Slice of Magic – A.G. Mayes

I have a thing for magic baking books, so I really wanted to like this book.  I think it was going for some sort of cozy mystery with a dash of magical realism, but it never quite hit the mark. It’s told from the first-person POV of Susanna, handyman.  She has fond memories of baking with her Aunt Erma as…

Sunday Update: January 13, 2019

BUT IT’S NOT SUNDAY? Yes, I know it’s not Sunday, but my husband got sick this weekend, so I spent the whole thing running the kids around, cleaning, and trying to cook enough food for the coming week, which is going to be busy, busy, busy!  This week, I have reviews for a “best friend’s brother” / “forced proximity” romance…

Wrong Bed, Right Roommate
Reviews

Review: Wrong Bed, Right Roommate – Rebecca Brooks

What a cute cover! This is a yummy combination of the best friend’s brother and forced proximity tropes, along with the collision of a Peter Pan fuckboy and a control freak, post-it-loving over-achevier. When Jessie’s BFF and roommate Talia goes to London for the summer, finding someone else to sublet their apartment in Brooklyn proves to be stressful, especially since…
