New Review! Sugar Daddy by Lisa Kleypas

Sugar Daddy (Travises, #1) by Lisa Kleypas

While I have adored Lisa Kleypas‘s historical romances, Sugar Daddy was my first of her contemporary romances. Unfortunately I didn’t develop a connection with the main romance in this book. I did like the parts that were a coming of age story and the writing was beautiful as always, but I did not care for either the hero or the heroine.

New Review! The Kiss Thief by L.J. Shen

This brutal romance about a young sheltered daughter of a mobster and the love triangle she is forced into when a Senator blackmails her father into giving away her hand in marriage was a tough read. The compelling story kept me invested in their outcomes but it was a harrowing journey to get there.

New Review! The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren

Vivid and lush descriptions of beautiful Maui and a relatable and smart narrator weren’t enough to save this book. I wanted to enjoy it more than I did, but unfortunately the honeymoon wore off quickly.

“Our eyes meet for one . . . two . . . three seconds, and then his gaze drops to my lips, to my neck, and down the entire length of my body. His brow quirks, lips part a little, and I catch how his breathing picks up. When he meets my eyes again, I hear what he’s trying to tell me: I like what I see.”
