ARC Review: Happily Letter After by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward

I am a huge fan of Penelope and Vi, both individually and as a team! Their books never disappoint and I always look forward to seeing what they will write! Happily Letter After was such a charming read, and I enjoyed it from start to finish. This one was so easy to get lost in and I think readers are going to love it just as much as I did. 

The characters in this book felt so real and genuine. Easy to root for and I felt connected to them right away. It was impossible not to fall for Birdie as well as Sadie and Sebastian. Sadie and Sebastian had such great chemistry and their connection was easy to see right away. Birdie was adorable and really brought everything together. 

Overall, I really enjoyed this story and was captivated from start to finish. The characters were the kind I love to read about, relatable yet unique and interesting. Vi and Penelope have done it again with Happily Letter After and I honestly can’t wait to see what they write next! If you are looking for a great contemporary read, I definitely recommend checking this one out!

ARC Review: Playing With Fire by LJ Shen


LJ Shen continues to get better with each new book she writes! I love that she delivers everything we have come to know and love from her, yet continues to grow and give readers something new as well. Playing With Fire was angsty and addictive and I couldn’t put it down. 

Grace and West were everything! I felt so much for them, and my heart broke the more we learned as the story went on. I felt so connected to them and was so excited to be a part of their journey. These characters were unique and genuine and they seemed to be so real as though they could leap off the page at any time. I couldn’t get enough and I loved how different they were. 

I honestly can’t recommend this book enough. LJ Shen is such a talented author and has proven that she can write anything and excel at it. I always recommend her books because I believe that they have something for everyone and they never disappoint! Playing With Fire is a top read for 2020 for me and a must read for fans of Shen as well as those that have not yet read anything from her.

ARC Review: Wild Fire by Kristen Ashley


I absolutely love the Chaos world that Kristen Ashley has created. It is one of my all time favorite series, so I couldn’t wait to get the story of Dutch. There was a lot to love here for fans of the series, and it was great to see familiar faces as well as meet some new ones. Wild Fire also set up the series to continue with Jagger’s story and I already can’t wait. 

While I liked the characters here and was excited to see Dutch get his story after seeing him grow up with Chaos, it took me a bit to warm up to Georgie. In the end I was happy with how things turned out and was on board with them. They had chemistry and I enjoyed seeing how things grew and changed between them. 

KA is one of my favorite authors and I always jump at the chance to go back to the Chaos world, so I can’t wait for more in this series and to get to know Jagger better. Fans of Chaos will enjoy reading more in this world, and if you are new to KA, I highly recommend giving this series a shot!

ARC Review: The Anti-Boyfriend by Penelope Ward

Penelope Ward is one of my favorite authors, and I am always anxiously awaiting her next book. I was super excited when I first heard about The Anti-Boyfriend as it sounded so good, and it was worth the wait. I really enjoyed reading it and it was one I didn’t want to put down. 

Deacon and Carys were great for one another. I loved their friendship and easy bond that was there from the beginning and seeing how it deepened the more time they spent together. These two had so many things in common that helped them to relate to one another in a way no one else could. The tension and chemistry between them was so strong and I couldn’t help but love seeing them try to fight it knowing that it would explode at some point. 

I also really loved seeing how Sunny fit in with them, and it was so sweet how Deacon cared for her. What kept this one being a five star read for me, was something that I think was just a personal issue. I don’t want to reveal anything and spoil it for other readers. But I just wish that things had gone differently in regards to some outside characters once Deacon and Carys admitted they had feelings for one another. Still a great read that I definitely recommend though, and I can’t wait to see what Penelope writes next!

ARC Review: If I Could by B. Celeste

I love B. Celeste’s books and I could wait to read If I Could after first hearing about it. This is a standalone M/M story featuring two great characters that you might be familiar with if you have read some of her previous books. While it was nice going in knowing these characters a bit, you don’t need to have read either of the books these characters were in before in order to enjoy this story!

Ren and Reece were great! I was hooked from the first page and couldn’t get enough of them. Each of them had vulnerabilities that made them the men they were and without everything they had been through, they might not have been as perfect for one another as they were. But I loved seeing those sides to them, and also how each of them made the other better and loved the other because of everything that they had overcome. They had a great connection right from the start, genuine and undeniable. Their chemistry was off the charts and I couldn’t get enough of them. 

I really enjoyed this story. It was one of those books that just pulls you in and is easy to get lost in. I read it in pretty much one sitting because I didn’t want to put it down. While it does deal with some heavier subjects, it felt light and effortless to me. If you are a M/M reader, I highly recommend this story. I think contemporary fans will really enjoy this one and I know whatever B. Celeste writes next I’ll be reading!
