Our last book club pick was The Blacksmith Queen by G.A. Aiken and while I loved the family dynamics and laughed out loud at a few parts, I think the violence in this book was overwhelming.
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.
We read Kerrigan Byrne’s How to Love a Duke in Ten Days for our book club pick this month and while I usually love this author, there was a lot I struggled with this book.
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.
I wanted so badly to enjoy Get a Life, Chloe Brown but I unfortunately did not like the main character and it was really hard to make it through this book. Read my full review here.
This book was high tension and at times super sad. Relationship status: It’s complicated. My feelings on this book: also very complicated.
This book has sweet heroine with a love of animals that rivals Snow White’s and a ruthless hero who finds himself caught up in the zoo of her life. I appreciate this book but can definitely say it wasn’t for me.
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.”
