The Locker Room by Amy Lane

The Locker Room by Amy Lane

ORIGINAL REVIEW: 5 stars — Well, at first I was thinking this review was going to be utterly pointless with just a bunch of gushing b/c I was so overwhelmed after I finished. But then I figured maybe I should sit down and actually figure out what specific things worked for me. B/C I don’t […]

Holiday Wishes by Jill Shalvis

Holiday Wishes by Jill Shalvis

3.5 stars — This one started off really strong, and while I’ve only read 1.5 other books in this series, it was still nice to see all the characters that I’d already fallen in love with again.  I loved how we didn’t have to wait too long to find out what happened between Sean and […]

Royally Screwed by Emma Chase

Royally Screwed by Emma Chase

4.5 stars — I’ve been looking forward to this one since it came out, but you know how sometimes you’re so excited for something that you start to worry that you’ve hyped yourself up too much, and it can’t possibly do anything but disappoint you?  That’s how I started to feel about this book.  So […]

The Kidnapped Christmas Bride by Jane Porter

The Kidnapped Christmas Bride by Jane Porter

3 stars — This one ended up just being OK for me.  It had some great moments, and it had a lot of moments that frustrated me or made me want to shake my head.  And honestly?  By the time I got to the end, I wasn’t feeling super satisfied. I will note that from […]

Breaking the Ice by Julie Cross

Breaking the Ice by Julie Cross

4 stars — Earlier in the year I read book 1 in this series and really enjoyed it, despite it being very different from YAs I usually read.  And so I was excited to see another book set in the town of Juniper Falls.  And this one was similarly engaging and yet SOOOOO different!!  Honestly, […]

The Way Back to Us by Jamie Howard

The Way Back to Us by Jamie Howard

4 stars — I had a bit of a harder time getting sucked into this one, but I can’t figure out if that had more to do with me and my frazzled mind, or the book…  That’s always the kicker eh?  Which, obviously if I still gave it 4 stars, does not mean the book […]

Winter Ball by Amy Lane

Winter Ball by Amy Lane

3.5 stars — I enjoyed this one, but to be truthful it just made me want to reread The Locker Room (which I did…review coming soon).  I liked both Skipper and Richie, but they did feel a bit young…but that could be just the nature of these two characters.  They did feel authentic though, that wasn’t […]

Dance with Me by Alexis Daria

Dance with Me by Alexis Daria

4 stars — Well this was a fun sequel!  I loved being back in the Dance Off world and finding out what was happening with Natasha, but the fun thing was that this was a completely different story to the first one!  It may have been set in the same world, but it wasn’t during […]
