Book Review: Yours to Keep

Super cute, and with some laugh-out-loud moments. Those LOL moments are why I keep coming back to Stacey’s books–this family is hilarious and I’d totally hang out with them. Especially because it would mean I get to bag a Kowalski man (seriously, they’re everywhere. This is the biggest family I’ve ever read about). (Also, in

Book Review: Prime Minister

Prime Minister, by Ainsley Booth and Sadie Haller, is a contemporary erotic romance. Some readers complained that they got bored midway through, and it’s true that the pacing isn’t super tight–however, I was riveted by the characters! Ellie and Gavin had me cheering for them from the very beginning! Especially fun was the first third

Book Review: A Promise of Fire

Brilliant book! I loved the characters, and I loved the world–a place where Greek gods are very present.

Bitten: The Television Series

Last week on the Pocket Romance blog, I talked about one of my “first loves”–one of the first urban fantasies I ever read, which was Stolen, by Kelley Armstrong. Imagine my utter delight when I discovered her Otherworld novels had been made into a television series! Unfortunately, the television series didn’t stay true enough to

The book gets an A+ for handling the hero’s backstory, and the heroine’s reluctance to be in a relationship. These were two very complicated characters who I nevertheless

Three Recent Loves

These books! Okay, let’s do this. Truth or Beard, by Penny Reid. This was funny! It contained Reid’s usual humor and sense of fun geekery. Seriously, can’t recommend her enough to people. A Lady Awakened, by Celia Grant. Both of these characters developed so well and thoroughly throughout the story, it was super satisfying to

Three Recent Loves

The Goal, by Elle Kennedy As a fan of this series, I already had high expectations for the book. Kennedy did not disappoint, delivering the fantastic, witty banter, the FEELS (ohmygosh the feels), and a super satisfying story. I love a book that makes me laugh out loud, and the Off-Campus books definitely do this.
