ARC Review: Take Two by Heather M. Orgeron

I was really excited to read Take Two by Heather M. Orgeron when I first read the blurb. I love second chance romances, especially ones with couples who have been divorced and find their way back to one another. This one was cute and I enjoyed it, but I didn’t love it. 

Nya and Liam were great together and it was clear that love wasn’t ever the problem. I especially loved how supportive and generous Liam was. He was such a great father and husband. I hated that because of one poor decision he made when he was young, Nya did what she did. Especially because Nya was short sighted and immature about how she handled a lot. She was very reactive and hard to connect to for me. I kept waiting for her to figure things out and realize how great Liam really was and thankfully she did. 

I think readers will enjoy this one like I did, but I have to say that Nya was ultimately what kept me from loving this book. I still think it was worth reading, but I just wish that we had been given a heroine I felt really deserved Liam because he was one of a kind and such a great character! Liam is what heroes are made of and I couldn’t get enough of him!

ARC Review: Just One Year by Penelope Ward

I am a huge fan of Penelope Ward. I love her books and her characters and read anything with her name on it. So I couldn’t wait for her newest standalone Just One Year. I enjoyed this book, but at the same time it wasn’t my favorite of hers. For some reason, it felt different than what I have come to know and expect from her. 

While I liked the characters, I didn’t love them or connect with them as much as I would have liked. Their story was good, but it wasn’t one that had me staying up late to finish it and it was easy for me to put down and come back to later. 

I think for me, something was missing here and I’m not really able to put my finger on it or say what it was but i’m sure it was me personally rather than the story itself. There were times that the dialogue felt a bit on the cheesy side and there wasn’t as much angst or urgency like I normally feel in her books. While this one might not have been all that I had hoped for, it was still a good read and I think readers will enjoy it. Penelope Ward is still one of my favorite authors and I am looking forward to her next solo book as well as her co-authored book. You can’t go wrong with any of her books, so I recommend giving this one a shot.

ARC Review: Angry God by LJ Shen

Angry God is the third book in the All Saints High Series by LJ Shen. This series is a spin-off of her Sinners of Saints series and while each book is a standalone story, I highly recommend reading them in order if possible for the most enjoyment. I honestly feel like I’ve been waiting for this story forever! I love Vaughn’s parents so much, and I just knew their son’s story would become another favorite and LJ Shen definitely didn’t let me down. 

Vaughn was so fascinating to me and such a tortured soul. I couldn’t get enough and I knew whoever he ended up with would have to be special. (just like with his dad and mom) Lenora was everything I had hoped he would find and more. She balanced him out and was the light to his dark. I won’t go into details on the actual story here, trust me you need to just experience it! 

Each new book I read from LJ Shen just shows why she is one of my top favorite authors. Her talent goes beyond what I could put into words, and she just gets better with each new story. The emotion and detail she is able to add to each book is something that draws me in every time. This book was captivating and I think fans of this series are going to love it just as much as I did! Already anxious for her next book!

ARC Review: Inappropriate by Vi Keeland

Vi Keeland is one of my all time favorite authors! I absolutely love her books, both her solo releases and her co-written stories. I couldn’t wait to read Inappropriate though, and it definitely didn’t disappoint! I couldn’t stop reading this one and didn’t want to put it down for anything! 

Grant and Ireland were amazing! I loved how things started out for them and how they quickly evolved. It was amazing to see the connection and chemistry they had right away. But watching them get to know one another and seeing how they really got to know one another in a way that they didn’t have with others was what kept me turning pages. Grant had been through a lot, and it explained why he was the way he was. It took someone special like Ireland for him to really start living again, and I was glad that he saw how different she was. These two were meant to find one another, and I couldn’t get enough of them! 

Overall, this was another fantastic read from Vi Keeland. I felt connected and invested in Grant and Ireland’s story, and really enjoyed reading about them. Vi Keeland is a great story teller and I honestly can’t wait to read more from her or recommend her books enough! If you are a romance fan, she is a must read author! Trust me you won’t be disappointed, and Inappropriate is a great book that I'll definitely read again in the future!
