ARC Review: Mafia Target by Mila Finelli


Mafia Target is the fourth book in the Kings of Italy series by Mila Finelli. This is the first book I’ve read from Mila, and it can easily be read as a standalone. After reading this one though, I can’t wait to read more from her, especially the previous books in this series!

Mafia Target is the story of assassin Alessio and the target he has been hired to take out, mafia prince Giulio. I loved seeing these two go from enemies to being forced to work together. They had every reason to avoid one another, yet the connection between them was undeniable. The chemistry was there right from the start and these two were beyond hot together! I couldn’t get enough of them and never wanted to put this one down. 

This was such a great book from start to finish, and I can’t recommend it enough. There was steam and action and it was everything I was looking for and more. I can’t believe this was the first book I've ever read from Mila, but it definitely won’t be my last! This was one of the best books I’ve read this year, and if you are a fan of the series or MM books, this is definitely one not to miss!

ARC Review: Hockey With Benefits by Tijan

I absolutely loved Hockey With Benefits! I have always been a fan of sports romance, and Tijan is one of the best when it comes to them! I have to say that Hockey With Benefits is maybe my favorite Tijan book ever! This is the best book that I’ve read this year and I honestly wanted to immediately re-read it after finishing! Hockey With Benefits is a standalone story, but if you are familiar with Tijan’s books, there are some familiar faces here that just made this one even better. 

Mara and Cruz’s no strings attached relationship quickly becomes more complicated than both of them wanted or expected. They had a great thing going and had so much chemistry right from the start. I enjoyed getting to know each of them better and seeing how they dealt with things both in the present and unresolved issues from their past. I felt like they were perfect for one another, and I really liked each of them alone as well as together. 

The other thing I loved about this book was the side characters! Each one added something to this story and I really loved how it all came together. I won’t go into details, but this book was great and I didn’t want to put it down! Real life fell away as I read this one, and I was so consumed with the story that I ended up finishing it in almost one sitting! Such a great story and I highly recommend it. Serious book hangover after finishing Hockey With Benefits, and I might just have to read it again as I’m not ready to leave this world yet.

ARC Review: Toe the Line by Penelope Ward

I absolutely love Penelope Ward and her writing style. While I have enjoyed every single one of her books, I of course have my favorites. Toe the Line is now added to that list! This one was so good, and honestly I didn’t want to put it down. Something about these characters had me hooked from the very first page until the last. I definitely could have read this in one sitting if it wasn’t for real life getting in the way. 

Penelope Ward is always so great at character development, and I always feel like her characters are so unique and genuine. You really feel like they could be real, and that was definitely the case here with Archie and Noelle. They had such a great foundation built from years of friendship, and it was easy to see how strong their connection was. The chemistry between them was also there right from the start, and you just kept waiting for it to ignite!

This book is set over the course of several years, and I loved seeing how things progressed from start to finish. So much happens and it felt like I was right there experiencing everything along with Noelle and Archie. I loved their friendship and how they were able to really be vulnerable with one another, while also having so much more beneath the surface. I am so glad I read this book and went in completely blind. I highly recommend all of Penelope’s books, but this one is at the top of the list!

ARC Review: The Game by Vi Keeland

Vi Keeland is one of my go-to authors whenever I am looking for a great romance that I can get lost in and know it will be a satisfying read. The Game was no exception, and I am always a sucker for a sports romance. This book was different, in that the heroine was unique and I liked that this wasn’t just the same thing I’ve read before. I felt it was one a lot of readers will love like I did and it had me entertained from the very beginning.

I liked both Christian and Bella, I thought that they were interesting, and I loved that they were different yet fit together perfectly! I also really enjoyed the progression of their relationship, seeing them get to know each other and fall for one another. I felt the connection and chemistry between these two right away and it just worked so well. I loved how persistent Christian was, and seeing him fall first was something I absolutely loved!

I will say that at times the family drama was a bit much, but otherwise this one was really enjoyable! I found myself laughing all the way through this one as well as swooning, and it just had so much to love! Vi Keeland never disappoints and I think romance readers (especially sports romance lovers!) will really enjoy this one! Can’t wait for more from Vi, already anxious for her next one!

ARC Review: Dibs by Kimberly Knight & Rachel Lyn Adams

I have been waiting for Dibs since I finished reading the Off the Field Duet! Dibs is a great standalone follow-up to that series, but don’t worry about being able to understand anything here in case you haven’t read Traded or Outed. I highly recommend them though as they are great and you get to see more of Chase!

Chase and Gage’s second-chance story was everything I hoped it would be! It was so good from start to finish that I didn’t want to put it down and I ended up finishing it in one day! These two were just so great, and I never wanted to leave their world! They were sexy and sweet, and I loved that their relationship was just so natural and genuine. These two were meant to be and it was so obvious that they just fit together perfectly. 

Chase and Gage’s story has everything you could want in a great romance, especially for sports fans. This one is sweet and sexy, and entertaining from the very first page. I loved seeing Chase and Gage and their families build a life together as they got to know the adults they had become. Things weren’t always easy for them, but I loved how great they were together and how each struggle just made them stronger. I highly recommend this one, and I am so glad I took a chance on these two authors in 2022 as they were both new to me! I am now a huge fan and can’t wait to see what they have in store for us in 2023!
