Ohmygosh. Oh my gosh. Oh! My! Gosh! What did I just read?!?! Excuse me while I pick my jaw up off the floor. I have no idea where to begin. Okay. Five things you should know about American Queen:
Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy have proven once again that they are a formidable writing team. Put them together and you get magical storytelling that warms your heart and assails you with humor. Good Boy is the first book in the M/F WAGs series, which is a spinoff of the M/M Him series. WAGs is an acronym for wives and girlfriends of professional athletes, in case you didn’t know.
Penny Reid is known for her witty romances. It’s what drew me to her work initially and keeps me coming back for more. Her Knitting in the City series is an excellent example of her clever storytelling. Each book details the life of one of the ladies in an eccentric knitting group. While quite enjoyable, Friends Without Benefits lacks some of the whimsical spirit I anticipated.
I’m reading this series completely out of order, but I still really enjoyed Wrong. Give me a hot doctor romance and I’ll lap it up.
Virtuous is the first book in the Quantum trilogy. The series came highly recommended so this is the first time I’ve gone into a book completely blind. I didn’t read a single review or even the book blurb beforehand. Having since read the book description, it perfectly summarizes the entire plot. Surprisingly, there aren’t many other major events that occur.
I’m trying to remember the last time I laughed this hard while reading a book, and I’m coming up empty. I bought the Kindle version and then added on Audible for $1.99 (well worth the price, in my opinion) so I could listen while driving. I had to keep a travel pack of tissues in the car because I had tears rolling all down my face and whatnot from laughing. I’m amazed I didn’t crash. So yeah. Neanderthal Marries Human is another notch in Penny Reid’s belt of winning smart romantic comedies.
I have enjoyed all of Kim Holden’s books. They are thoughtful, uplifting and frequently stirring, and each book celebrates the power of the human spirit. Franco is no different.
Reading this book was an exercise in frustration. Here’s the plot in a nutshell. A man is a prick, a woman is fixated on his dick, said man breaks said woman’s heart, and they wind up starring in a Broadway show opposite each other as lovers.
