Review #314

I gave this YA contemporary romance (clean) a 4.3/5 stars. It’s all written in Madeline’s point of view in first person present tense. Sometimes it was TOO young adult, but overall I thoroughly enjoyed this standalone. It was easy, sweet, cute and read well. I mean who doesn’t like book store rivalry, enemies to lovers,Continue reading “Review #314”

I gave this contemporary romance a 4.5/5 stars. It marked off all the boxes for contemporary genre. Levi is adorable. It was highly predictable but that’s okay because it’s expected. What wasn’t expected was how well the steamy scenes were written. I’ve read a variety of erotica before and even though this one was tame,Continue reading “Review #301”

Review #261

I give this standalone happily-ever-after contemporary a 4.4/5 stars. The story by Melissa Ferguson is in first person, present tense and has an adorable office romance trope. As much as I love novels with two points of view, it’s refreshing that this one sticks with only Savannah’s POV, which is a necessity for the plot.Continue reading “Review #261”

Title- The Unhoneymooners Author- Christina Lauren Rating– 5/5 Genre- contemporary romance POV- first person Trope- If you like “fake relationships,” “forced to be together,” and “enemies to lovers” than this is a great book for you.
