One Last Stop | Casey McQuiston | Book Review

One Last Stop is the sophomore novel of author Casey McQuiston. I think after the success of their debut Red, White, and Royal Blue readers were wondering if they would be able to follow up. Personally, I enjoyed Red, White, and Royal Blue more as a reader but, this is not to discredit One LastContinue reading “One Last Stop | Casey McQuiston | Book Review”

Pug Actually | Matt Dunn | Book Review

Pug Actually by Matt Dunn is a romantic comedy told in the perspective of the main characters pug named Doug. I decided to read this one because it sounded it was going to be a fun easy read. Ultimately, there were some parts that were hilarious but, there were some parts that really just didn’tContinue reading “Pug Actually | Matt Dunn | Book Review”

Hang The Moon | Alexandria Bellefleur | Book Review

Written in the Stars was one of my favorite reads of 2021 so I was very excited to dive back into that world with Hang The Moon. This time the focus is on Brandon and Annie – the brother and the best friend – and it is so swoon worthy! It has everything you couldContinue reading “Hang The Moon | Alexandria Bellefleur | Book Review”

Home At Last | Lily Everett | Book Review

Lily Everett’s Sanctuary Island series is one of my favorite contemporary romance series to date. The setting is a small town with fields of wild horses. It all seems to be very calm and peaceful and a place that I would love to actually live. Previously, I have read and reviewed Sanctuary Island, Shoreline Drive,Continue reading “Home At Last | Lily Everett | Book Review”

The Crown Prince’s Bride | Donna Alward | Book Review

The Crown Prince’s Bride is the second book in the Royal Duology series by Donna Alward. Similar to the first book in the series (The Playboy Prince and the Nanny), I would call this an “escape novel”. It has a fairy tale feel with sweet moments of romance. The Crown Prince’s Bride follows the crownedContinue reading “The Crown Prince’s Bride | Donna Alward | Book Review”

The Playboy Prince and the Nanny | Donna Alward | Book Review

The Playboy Prince and the Nanny is a sweet romance that almost has a fairy tale feel to it. I would definitely call this an “escape novel”. The writing, the location, and romance all allow the reader to step away from their real life for a short period of time. Prince Diego is always makingContinue reading “The Playboy Prince and the Nanny | Donna Alward | Book Review”

The Girl He Knows | Kristi Rose | Book Review

The Girl He Knows is the second book in the No Strings Attached series by Kristi Rose. I had not read the previous book in the series The Girl He Needs but, I did not feel like I was missing very much. I could easily tell how the characters were connected to each other andContinue reading “The Girl He Knows | Kristi Rose | Book Review”

Win Me Over | Nicole Michaels | Book Review

Win Me Over is the second book in the Hearts and Crafts series by Nicole Michaels. I have not read the first book in the series (Start Me Up) but, did not get the feel like I was missing anything. Set in a small town, the air of this book is filled with the warmthContinue reading “Win Me Over | Nicole Michaels | Book Review”

The Edge of You | Theresa DaLayne | Book Review

The Edge of You by Theresa DaLayne is a New Adult novel that was released in 2014. Originally, I had requested this one from Netgalley because I hadn’t read very many New Adult books at the time (still haven’t honestly). I also liked the idea of a book with the setting of Alaska. I neverContinue reading “The Edge of You | Theresa DaLayne | Book Review”
