Perfectly Imperfect has a good message about loving oneself despite a fat shaming society that places too much emphasis on unrealistic body image. Unfortunately, the weak execution of the plot eclipses the intriguing premise.
Just when I thought my tender heart couldn’t handle another love triangle, I took a chance on Drive. Truthfully, if it had been written by anyone other than one of my favorite storytellers, Kate Stewart, I probably would have passed. Drive dragged me through a range of emotions—sometimes kicking and screaming—but man, what a great journey.
I’m in awe of Lauren Blakely’s ability to rapidly write hit after hit. The sheer volume of her work is jaw dropping, but it’s the consistent quality of her rom-coms that is truly impressive. Hard Wood marks the end of her Big Rock compilation, and what a way to go out. This book had me smiling so hard my face hurt.
The first book I read by Mia Sheridan was Archer’s Voice, and I fell madly in love with it. I’ve read many of her books since then, always chasing the same rush I felt that first time. I found a close contender with Most of All You.
I love Jana Aston’s writing. Hers is the type of humor that really clicks for me. I eat up her feel-good stories packed with quirky characters. Sure Thing has all the ingredients needed to make a winning romantic comedy. I just wanted to tweak the recipe a little.
What is this I’m feeling? That would be all the feels. All. The. Feels. Still is the dynamic conclusion to Grip and Bristol’s love story, and to say it consumed me would be an inadequate tribute to Kennedy Ryan’s writing. I’m still in recovery mode.
