Liza's Recent Reads May 2020

1. The Hookup Handbook by Kendall Ryan. This was a cute, contemporary romance with a workplace romance and the “best friend’s little sister” trope. Amazon US. Everywhere.

2. Destiny’s Captive by Beverly Jenkins. This is my first Beverly Jenkins book! She’s a legend. An enjoyable historical romance. Amazon US. Everywhere.

3. The Ones Who Got Away by Roni Loren. Emotional and satisfying contemporary romance. Some distressing backstory (a school shooting) that almost had me putting it down, but the overall message is positive and I’m SUPER glad I kept reading! Amazon US. Everywhere.

4. Ouran High School Host Club by Bisco Hatori. This is my first manga and it takes skill to read a story that is told in both pictures and words! I kept wanting to read only the words, and then I’d miss the context and have to go back. Loving this, though, and I’ll have to read more. Amazon US. Everywhere.

5. Hate F*@k by Ainsley Booth. This one is steeeeeamy, erotic romance. Thoroughly enjoyable with opposites attract and a forbidden romance. Also enemies-to-lovers. So all the reader catnip! Amazon US. Everywhere.

Book Review: Prime Minister

prime-ministerPrime 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 or so, when they were figuring each other out. Obviously the prime minister couldn’t come right out and tell her he was kinky.

There’s a LOT of sex in this one and it’s at turns hot and funny. It broke some of my preconceived notions about kink, and I always love a book that challenges my beliefs about sex and sexuality.

Gavin’s best friend makes for excellent sequel bait, so I’ll be reading the next book in the series, Doctor Bad Boy, soon!
