I loved The Bird and the Sword so hard, and I’m amazed that The Queen and the Cure filled me with equal joy. Once again, Amy Harmon spins a tantalizing tale of love, bravery, sacrifice, and magic. She just may turn me into a lover of romantic fantasy after all.
The Girl in 6E is incredibly unique, so props to A.R. Torre (Alessandra Torre’s pseudonym) for creativity alone. Talk about an edgy thriller!
The Failing Hours is the second book in the How to Date a Douchebag series. While it’s not necessary to have read book one, I think you’ll have a better understanding of the characters and, therefore, enjoy it more if you do. Plus, The Studying Hours is a really great book.
I really enjoyed this college rom-com. How to Date a Douchebag: The Studying Hours is the first sports romance I’ve read about wrestlers. Personally, I’ve never been a fan of wrestling. Big sweaty guys, grabbing each other in headlocks like elementary kids in a playground fight, rolling around on mats, and pinning each other down? Meh. And those unitard thingies they wear? I don’t care how much junk they show, they just aren’t sexy to me. I guess I’m in the minority because all the girls on campus get lady boners over the wrestlers. They must have a really sucky football team or something. Who knows? So yeah. The wrestlers are a big deal at this college and, apparently, the majority of them are big douche canoes.
Excuse me while I dunk my entire body in ice water. First things first: heed the author’s warning. Unconventional is beyond steamy; it’s like the Disneyland of erotica. If you’re looking for something extremely dirty to read, you will enjoy this kinky thrill ride. You impatient bad girls out there—and you know who you are—don’t even have to wait until you’re halfway through the book to get to the “good parts.” Things get naughty in chapter one and only heat up from there.
6 stars My heart is literally pounding in my chest right now. I’m not kidding when I say I just had to take a Xanax. Aly Martinez nailed it with this gripping story that takes you on an inspirational, breathtakingly emotional journey and never lets you go.
Hello Forever is another example of just how sweet and real Sarina Bowen’s M/M romances are. That’s not to say there’s no heat, but the focus is on the emotional connection between the main characters.
Two is a Lie is the second book in the Tangled Lies trilogy, and Pam Godwin mic drops the hell out this turbulent story. I thought the love triangle was fairly easy to handle in the first book, but apparently that was just foreplay. Two is a Lie is like Kryptonite to angst junkies, and only three things got me through this book: ranting on social media, lots of red wine, and a bottle of Tums. True story.
