ARC Review: Dear Heart, I Miss You by Eliah Greenwood


Dear Heart, I Miss You is the continuation of Finn and Dia’s story, so if you haven’t already read Dear Heart, I Hate You, you’ll need to start there. I also highly recommend reading Dear Love, I Hate You, the first book in the series. Xavier and Aveena are great and I think it really sets up this series, plus it’s just a fantastic book!

This series has become one of my favorites, as has Eliah Greenwood. Her talent for writing just seems to get better with each new book I read from her, and this one was no exception. After the cliffhanger we were left with in the previous book, I was anxious for more. While reading this book, I understood exactly why things played out the way they did, because it was meant to be that way. 


Finn and Dia had so much more to learn and both had to grow up. Seeing their journeys is something I’ll never forget. Each of them had their strengths and their vulnerabilities and they both felt so real and genuine. It was as if I was right there experiencing everything with them. My heart both broke and soared for each of them at times, and I felt so connected to them. 


This book was intense at times, and definitely had me feeling all the emotions. That said, it was absolutely perfect and I truly feel this one went exactly the way it should have. It was well worth the wait, and I’ll never get over Finn and Dia! I highly recommend this one, and already can’t wait to see what Eliah Greenwood writes next!

ARC Review: The Boss Project by Vi Keeland

 



I absolutely love Vi Keeland's stories! She never disappoints and as soon as I finish one, I already cannot wait to see what she'll write next! The Boss Project was everything I have come to love from her, and each new book she releases just hits every time!

Evie and Merrick were great together! I loved seeing how things started between them, and the evolution of their relationship over the course of this book. They were so good for one another, exactly what the other needed and their connection was so genuine. Their relationship had an ease to it, even if things weren't easy for them after all they'd each been through. Their chemistry was super hot and I couldn't get enough of the steam between them.

It also has to be mentioned that Kitty made this book! Her bond with each of these two was so fun to read about! I highly recommend this one! It has everything you could want, steam, humor, a swoon-worthy hero and likeable heroine. I can't wait to see what Vi Keeland has ready for us next!

ARC Review: The Assignment by Penelope Ward


The Assignment by Penelope Ward is a sweet and heartwarming story and I really enjoyed it! I found this one to be a cute and easy to read book that was exactly what I was looking for in between some heavier reads. I think contemporary fans will really like this one!


This book features a cast of real and genuine characters that I had a great time getting to know. Aspyn and Troy are both flawed characters, yet somehow together they are perfect. I loved seeing their relationship progress from enemies to friends with benefits and ultimately more. They were truly a case of your past does not define you, and it is never to late to turn things around and grow both individually and in a relationship. I loved the way things evolved and the heat between them.


I also really loved the side characters here, Aspyn’s niece Kiki, Troy’s grandfather Louie and father Giovanni. Each one had a hand in helping these two figure things out, and Troy’s grandfather was super cute. Overall, the emotion and steam here made this book a quick and easy read for me and was exactly what I have come to expect and love from Penelope Ward. Her books always leave me feeling happy and anxious for the next one. The Assignment was no different, and I recommend this one for contemporary fans!

Review: Don't You Dare by CE Ricci


 

I have become a huge fan of CE Ricci's since reading her River of Rain duet. Having devoured every book she has out since, I honestly couldn't wait for Don't You Dare. This book is different from what she has released previously, but it was every bit as good! I cannot even begin to put into words how much I love her books, but if you are a fan of M/M romance, she is a must read. 

While she normally does enemies to lovers stories, Don't You Dare centers around best friends Aspen and Keene. These two are the friendship that everyone hopes to have in their life, the kind that would go to the ends of the earth and back for one another. I loved their bond and the fact that it had been so strong since childhood just made this one that much sweeter. Of course everything changed with a single dare when they kiss and from there I couldn't get enough of them. Seeing how they each struggled with their feelings and everything they thought they knew about themselves made me want to hug each of them. But it was clear that these two were meant for so much more than just friendship with one another. They were sexy and steamy, and I could not put this one down as they explored everything that was growing and changing between them.

I'm so glad that CE Ricci took a chance on writing something different because it absolutely paid off here. Keene and Aspen's story was perfect, emotional and sexy and captivating from start to finish. I am new to her books, but I have become such a huge fan and honestly can't wait to read everything from her that she writes in the future. If you are a fan of M/M books, she is a must read author and this one was fantastic.

ARC Review: Dear Heart, I Hate You by Eliah Greenwood

 



I have been waiting for Finn and Dia’s story since I first met them in Eliah Greenwood’s book, Dear Love, I Hate You. I absolutely loved the first book in the Easton High series and while it was a great book that I highly recommend you read, you don’t have to read it to understand this book. I highly recommend it though!! I have to say that while I loved Xavier and Aveena from book 1, Finn and Dia are EVERYTHING!

Finn and Dia go through so much here and honestly they had me hooked from the very first page. These two have so much more to each of them than you might realize at first glance, and they really went through a lot. While I know most people aren’t a fan of cliffhangers (myself included), this story honestly needs more than one book. I can see why Eliah had to split their story up. Seeing these two go from where they started to where this book ended, I can’t imagine it any other way, and Eliah is a brilliant writer. 


Finn and Dia had me feeling all the emotions. Their story isn’t easy and it wrecked me emotionally in the best way possible. I don’t typically cry much when I read, but I did here. I felt so connected to these two and honestly my heart broke for each of them. I can’t wait to get more of them, and Eliah has promised we won’t have to wait long. I just know I’m going to fall even more in love with Finn and Dia in the next book and I can’t recommend this one enough! Dear Heart, I Hate You is one of the best books I've read this year, and Eliah Greenwood has quickly become a favorite author of mine! This one is a must read!! Even if you wait until book 2 is out to read this, I highly recommend picking this one up now, you won’t regret it!
