ARC Review: The Crush by Penelope Ward

 



I can always count on Penelope Ward to deliver a solid contemporary romance read with each new release, but I couldn’t wait to read The Crush! Best friend’s sister is always one of my go-to tropes, and I really enjoyed Farrah and Jace’s story!


Penelope Ward had me hooked from page one and I didn’t want to put it down. Farrah and Jace had a great connection and I loved seeing them figure things out. I really felt for both of them and the situation. I understood why a lot of things were done, and yet I couldn’t help but be frustrated that sometimes things went certain ways. I knew these two were perfect for one another though, and I had every faith that things would work out for them as Penelope has never let me down yet!


While this one had a few predictable moments, I had a great time reading it and I think fans of Penelope’s books are going to really enjoy Farrah and Jace. The characters are likable and easy to relate to. If you are a fan of contemporary romance, Penelope Ward is an author that you don’t want to miss! I definitely recommend checking out The Crush as well as anything else with Penelope’s name on it!

ARC Review: The Invitation by Vi Keeland



Vi Keeland delivers another fantastic contemporary romance with The Invitation. I couldn’t put this one down! From start to finish, I had a great time reading this book. I have loved Vi’s books since I first read one, and she has never let me down.


Hudson and Stella were great characters. I was invested in both of them right away. The way they met had me hooked from the very first page, and I couldn’t wait to see what would happen next. They were so good together, and I loved seeing how things grew and changed for them. They had such strong chemistry and seeing their connection grow was what kept me captivated. I adored Hudson’s daughter too. His love and commitment to being a good dad to her was so natural and sweet that you couldn’t help but fall for him right along with Stella. 


Overall, I highly recommend this one! It was exactly the escape I was looking for with all the crazy going on in the world and I think readers are going to love this one just as much as I did. If you are already a fan of Vi’s this is another must read, and if you are new to her this is definitely worth taking the chance on!

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!
