Don’t let the fact that Sweet Fall is a sports romance set on a college campus deceive you. This isn’t a New Adult romantic comedy – at all. It deals with some heavy subject matter, but it still manages to be… well… sweet.
Overall, I really enjoyed this sweet college sports romance. I’ve got a soft spot for smart, geeky heroines, and British transplant Molly Shakespeare fits the mold perfectly. Romeo Prince is an alpha male/player wrapped in an NFL-bound star quarterback package. Romeo and Shakespeare. Get it? The two are adorable together, and their attraction is magnetic. Although Romeo frequently comes across as too needy and whiney, the characters are likable, and the story tugs at your heartstrings. I really enjoyed Molly and Rome’s friends. In particular, Texas gal Cass is a hoot!
After two Alessandra Torre books failed to hit the mark with me, I finally found one I enjoyed. Hollywood Dirt doesn’t have the angst, super naughtiness, or big twists for which she’s known, and that was just fine with me.
It was a good day for Louboutins. I hadn’t planned on wearing statement heels on the runway to death but if this was it, if I was going to be killed by some random psycho with a thirst for blood, what better way to go down than with red-soled “fuck yous” to my murderer?
This was a fun, quick and dirty little read. Lexa is a fact-checker for a fledgling magazine. Three weeks before her wedding, Lexa walks in on her co-worker, Sophie, riding the bologna pony with her fiancé—aka Trager the Mailroom Guy. Jameson Holt is the editor of the magazine and Sophie’s boyfriend—evidently, it’s one big incestuous playground over at InTrend Magazine.
I don’t know how many times I’ve told you I love you but I know that number is all wrong because it isn’t enough I’m beginning to think Melanie Harlow is a magician. How else did she manage to write a romantic comedy, weave in a mental health issue, and make it moving, sexy, and lighthearted as well?
What a great year for Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy. Him was nominated for a 2015 Goodreads Readers’ Choice Awards, and it easily made my list of 2015 favorites. I mean, I was a total fangirl over this book. I’m happy to share some great news with fellow fans. A sequel is on the horizon in 2016! Leave it to Elle and Sarina to make the announcement in their own quirky way. I can’t wait to hear more about Us.
I’m surprised by how much I liked this book. I’m a fan of the friends-to-lovers trope, but it’s a difficult recipe to follow. Add the romance too suddenly, and the dish doesn’t seem authentic. Drag out conflicts, and the meal tastes sour. Some Sort of Crazy has just the right ingredients, and Melanie Harlow follows the recipe expertly.
