ARC Review: Insatiable by Melanie Harlow

Melanie Harlow is an author that I love everything I’ve read by her. Her stories are feel good romances that always leave me in a good mood and that I enjoy from start to finish. Insatiable was cute and sweet and exactly what I needed in my life. I had a great time reading this one, and if you love contemporary romances, is one I’d highly recommend. While this is the third book in her Cloverleigh Farms series, it is a standalone story that you can read even if you haven’t read the previous two books. 

Meg and Noah have never been anything more than friends, living their separate lives but keeping in touch no matter where life takes them. But after getting dumped, Meg heads home to Cloverleigh Farms to be near family and friends. As Meg and Noah spend more time together, things between them begin to change and soon they are seeing each other differently than they have before. I loved them both and there were so great for one another. Their connection was clear and I enjoyed seeing them transition from friends to more. 

This book was fast paced and kept me flipping pages, not wanting to put it down. I really enjoyed it and I loved the characters. Melanie Harlow delivered another great contemporary romance and I think this is one of those books that will appeal to many readers. It is just a great story that you can lose yourself in and feel good from start to finish. I can’t wait to see what Melanie writes next and definitely recommend this one!

ARC Review: Underneath the Sycamore Tree by B. Celeste

I have loved everything I’ve read from B. Celeste, so I was really excited when I read the blurb for Underneath the Sycamore Tree. I knew I wanted to read it and expected it to be everything I’ve learned to expect from B. Celeste. I have to admit though, that this book was not what I was expecting at all. I won’t be going into detail on the actual story, as I don’t want to spoil anything. 

First let me say though that this book was just as well written as everything else that I have read from Celeste. It flowed well and I was lost in the story and the journey of the characters. It was beautiful and Celeste continues to prove that she is a talented author. 

The problem for me was a personal one. I was not expecting things to take the turn they did, and I’ll admit that while I understood why Celeste did this, as a reader I personally struggle with certain things and that hurts my enjoyment of a story, no matter how well written it is. This is nothing personal towards the author, but each person handles things differently and for me as a reader I want certain things when I read a romance. 

I still think this book is worth the read and incredibly well written, I just personally wished it would have been different and my rating is a reflection of my personal taste.
