Book review: Gym or Chocolate? ~ Stuart Reardon & Jane Harvey-Berrick

Falling for somebody who seems to be your total opposite? Gym or Chocolate? tells the funny and sometimes hilarious story of Cady and Rick, who each live in a different world when it comes to food and fitness. I love it. Cady and Rick are very different people. Both are confident in their own skin, but they each have a […]

Blue Balls is the latest RomCom by RC Boldt, and tells the story of Sarah and Jack. In case those names sound familiar in combination with the author’s name, yes you have met Sarah and Jack before. To be more precisely, in Clam Jam, where they are the best friends of the main characters. Although a bit connected to Clam […]

Book review + excerpt: Joy Ride ~ Lauren Blakely

Joy Ride is Lauren Blakely’s latest Romantic Comedy. Like many of her other books, it’s almost told entirely from the guy’s POV, and the couples from her previous books are happy to make a (small) appearance. Joy Ride tells the story of Max, custom care builder extraordinaire and Henley, his former apprentice and the one lady who drives him mad. […]

Book review: Extra Credit ~ Poppy Dunne

Book review: Extra Credit ~ Poppy Dunne

One of my favorite sub-genres in the romance genre is the single parent category. I love to read about a parent who takes care of his/her kid(s) and finds new love. In Extra Credit by Poppy Dunne we have a single dad who falls for the drama teacher of his 10-year-old daughter. Add to that a bit crazy ex and […]

The Hot One is Lauren Blakely’s latest romantic comedy and tells us the story of Tyler and Delaney. Throughout college they were a couple, until they weren’t. The Hot One is about their second-chance to make it work this time. It’s told in a double POV and I love it! “What do you say? Do you say ‘you should give […]

Book review + excerpt: Full Package ~ Lauren Blakely

Lauren Blakely is one of my go-to authors for funny, sweet reads. Full Package is her newest RomCom story, told in the guy’s POV with a few thoughts of the heroine throughout the book. We’ve met Chase in Well Hung, as the best friend of Wyatt, but he’s also close with Josie, Wyatt’s younger sister. Full Package tells how Chase […]

Book review + excerpt: The Sexy One ~ Lauren Blakely

I know Lauren Blakely mostly for her funny and hilarious rom-coms, written in the guy’s POV. Yes, the books are bit over the top and I wonder if my hubby thinks that much about sex, but I just love these stories. In Mister O we’ve met Simon, the hot single dad. The Sexy One tells us his swoony story. “You […]

Book review: The Fix-Up ~ Kendall Ryan

Book review: The Fix-Up ~ Kendall Ryan

A couple of months ago I’ve read the Hitched series by Kendall Ryan, and although they are over-the-top, the books are very funny. Noah and Olivia – the leading couple in Hitched – have the support of their best friends, who provide them with well-meant suggestions. To their disbelieve, said best friends suddenly find themselves in a strangely familiar situation. […]

Book review: How To Catch an Heiress ~ Natalie Rios

“Let’s make a toast. To new friends, fine scotch, and hopefully some new adventures.” “Hear, hear.” I clinked my glass against his. “Our luck’s got to turn at some point.” Anthony is not in a happy place. He has lost the only parent he had – his mother – to cancer, and due to one drunken mistake he has lost […]
