The Meeting Point by Olivia Lara @olilara_writes @NetGalley #romance #fiction #bookreview

Kaceey’s Review: I had somewhat of a love-dislike relationship with this book. Pull up a chair and I’ll explain. The premise grabbed me right away and knew it was a must-read for me! Maya wants to surprise her boyfriend who’s presently across the country in California on business. It’s Maya’s birthday and her surprise isContinue reading “The Meeting Point by Olivia Lara @olilara_writes @NetGalley #romance #fiction #bookreview”

When Sparks Fly by Helena Hunting @HelenaHunting @MacmillanAudio @NetGalley #bookblogger #romance #bookreview

Kaceey’s Review: Avery Spark and her sisters run an events hotel in Colorado. It’s Avery’s burning passion, and her sisters? Well, they support her dream and are all in with just one caveat…Avery must run the show. Avery’s personal life isn’t nearly as exciting as her professional life. She lives with her long time (male)Continue reading “When Sparks Fly by Helena Hunting @HelenaHunting @MacmillanAudio @NetGalley #bookblogger #romance #bookreview”

It Started with a Dog (Lucky Dog #2) by Julia London @JuliaFLondon @BerkleyPub @NetGalley #romcom #contemporaryfiction #bookbloggers #rottiepuppy

Susanne’s Review: Seriously Cute, though a Tad Predictable. A Ridiculous Lyft Share Ends with an Inadvertent Phone Swap and a Meet Cute. If only life worked out this way, for real!  Ha. When Harper Thompson and Jonah Rodgers inadvertently swap phones during a wild Lyft share, they of course start swapping text messages. The factContinue reading “It Started with a Dog (Lucky Dog #2) by Julia London @JuliaFLondon @BerkleyPub @NetGalley #romcom #contemporaryfiction #bookbloggers #rottiepuppy”

The Charm Offensive by Alison Cochrun @AlisonCochrun @AtriaBooks @NetGalley #lgbtqia #romcom #fiction #contemporaryfiction #mentalhealth #bookreview #bookblogger

Susanne’s Review: So much more than a Rom-Com! Have you ever gone into a book expecting one thing and getting something else entirely?  Well, that is exactly what happened to me when reading The Charm Offensive.  I expected an LGBTQIA+ rom-com, and what I got was a book centering around acceptance, identity, mental health, self-esteem,Continue reading “The Charm Offensive by Alison Cochrun @AlisonCochrun @AtriaBooks @NetGalley #lgbtqia #romcom #fiction #contemporaryfiction #mentalhealth #bookreview #bookblogger”

The Forever Girl (Wildstone #6) by Jill Shalvis #jillshalvis #fiction #contemporaryfiction #womensfiction #libraryloan

Susanne’s Review: There’s just something about Wildstone. Returning to Wildstone for her best friend’s wedding isn’t easy.  After all, it’s been several years and Maze walked away for a reason.  Leaving everyone behind broke her heart.  Once part of a foster family that included her estranged best friend Cat, baby sister Heather, and Walker, theContinue reading “The Forever Girl (Wildstone #6) by Jill Shalvis #jillshalvis #fiction #contemporaryfiction #womensfiction #libraryloan”

the Heart Principle by Helen Hoang @HHoangWrites @Dreamscapeaudio @librofm #contemporary #romance #fiction #bookreview #bookblogger

Kaceey’s Review: Oh my gosh. I went into this read expecting a fun romance. Yes, I heard there were some deeper themes involved. But truly I thought those would be a side note. Turns out it was the romance that took second stage. Anna’s long time boyfriend just asked or should I say presented herContinue reading “the Heart Principle by Helen Hoang @HHoangWrites @Dreamscapeaudio @librofm #contemporary #romance #fiction #bookreview #bookblogger”

Beautiful World, Where Are You by Sally Rooney #sallyrooney @librofm @MacmillanAudio #fiction #literaryfiction #bookreviewer

Susanne’s Review: What can I say?:  Sally Rooney has something that I don’t believe that many other authors have and what is even more spectacular is that she can put it down on paper.  She has a deep, innate understanding of life, love, friendships, and relationships, and that is intangible.  “Beautiful World, Where Are You”Continue reading “Beautiful World, Where Are You by Sally Rooney #sallyrooney @librofm @MacmillanAudio #fiction #literaryfiction #bookreviewer”

It Happened One Summer by Tessa Bailey @tessabaileyisanauthor @HarperAudio #romance #fiction #romcom #bookreview #bookblogger

Kaceey’s Review: This was an audio version I’d been looking forward to all year. Having previously listened to Tess Bailey’s  Hot and Hammered series and loving it.    This new series, It Happened One Summer features Piper Belanger, a young twenty-something influencer / party girl. No one has ever taken her seriously and she’s never had a true relationship.Continue reading “It Happened One Summer by Tessa Bailey @tessabaileyisanauthor @HarperAudio #romance #fiction #romcom #bookreview #bookblogger”

Count Your Lucky Stars by Alexandria Bellefleur @ambellefleur @avonbooks @NetGalley @lgbtqia+romance #loveislove #contemporaryfiction #fiction #bookreviewer #bookblogger

Susanne’s Review: Oh, Drat!  How I wanted to love this and count my lucky stars, but alas, Count Your Lucky Stars by Alexandra Bellefleur was not quite for me.  Stop the presses, however, as it wasn’t the plot or the characters I didn’t love, it was something else altogether.. The fact of it is, thatContinue reading “Count Your Lucky Stars by Alexandria Bellefleur @ambellefleur @avonbooks @NetGalley @lgbtqia+romance #loveislove #contemporaryfiction #fiction #bookreviewer #bookblogger”
