Wild Kisses (Wildwood #2)

Wild Kisses

(This review is based on the ARC provided by the publisher via Net Galley)

This was a sweet and passionate contemporary romance and the second book in the Wildwood series. I loved this book because of it's brilliant writing and scorching hot chemistry. It was my first time reading a book by Skye Jordan and she manages to bring her characters to life with her heart wrenching writing and unique story. Traces's character was brilliantly conceived and I loved his alpha male side as well as the way he was trying to change his reputation and repent for his mistakes. I also enjoyed Avery'S character because she was strong and independent because she didn't let her past issues knock her down. My favourite part of this book was the chemistry between Avery and Trace especially their intimate scenes which was written so brilliantly that it would leave the reader hot and bothered. The only thing I would like to have seen is the beginning of Avery and Traces's relationship when they first met to start the construction of the bakery. Overall all a wonderful book which has made me a fan of Skye Jordan.

Rating: 4/5

Married at Midnight

Married at Midnight

(This review is based on the ARC provided by the publisher via Net Galley)

This was a second chance romance novel which had a good story, but nothing unique or special. It was my first time reading a novel by Gerri Russell and I found that I really enjoyed her writing and the dual point of view style of writing because it helped the reader understand the characters.  I enjoyed Connor's character because he was intelligent and understood his flaws and he made the effort to change it. At points I felt Ellie's character very boring and she always seemed to feel sorry for herself. The chemistry between Connor and Ellie was good, but it could have been better. I found that I wasn't able to fully understand their decision to break up the first time and end up hating each other, so that was a bit confusing for me. I enjoyed the addition of the meddling Elvis impersonaters because they reminded me of Melody Anne's books. Overall an okay second chance romance novel.

Rating: 3/5

Can't Stop Loving You

Can't Stop Loving You

(This review is based on the ARC provided by the publisher via Net Galley)

It has been ages since I read a book which I loved so much and this story took me on an emotional roller coaster which I completely enjoyed. This was my first time reading a book by Miranda Liasson and with just one book I have become a fan of her flawless writing and brilliant writing style which manages to bring all the characters in the book alive.  I loved the characters because they were made realistic and relatable. Roman's character was passionatemandatory he had the whole alpha male and protector vibe that I loved as well as I really liked the fact that despite his difficult upbringing he was able to make something of himself instead of continously living in the past. I was able to connect with Bella's character because of her strong family background, the respect she had towards her father and her selflessness when it came to her family. The chemistry between Bella and Roman was fiery and passionate and I loved how Miranda did flash backs in order to show the reader their love story from the beginning. The secondary characters were all well written and added some entertainment to the book and I would love to read their stories in the future.

Rating: 5/5

A Christmas Kiss (Kissed by the Bay #5)

A Christmas Kiss

(This review is based on the ARC provided by the publisher via Net Galley)

This was a sweet and short romance that will fill your heart with the warm Christmas spirit.  I really enjoyed this story because it was an easy read set in a winter wonderland. The characters were well written and I loved how they showed the both sides of marriage. I am a fan of Susan from her Better Date Than Never series and I really like her style of writing, but I would have liked to see some parts of the book from Gabriel's point of view. The chemistry between was good and I loved seeing them trying to resist their attraction. Overall this was a good and simple read.

Rating: 3.5/5

Saved by the Montana Hero (Montana Lakeside Series #4)

Saved by the Montana Hero

(This review is based on the ARC provided by the publisher via Net Galley)

This has to be the most BORING book I have ever read, that for the first time I left a book incomplete at 60%. I found the characters boring and Vella's writing style made the story feel even more drab. The chemistry between Terron and Kolina was taking forever to develop and their back stories was also taking too long to come to the forefront. Even the whole dog and wolf story was really annoying because it seemed to be going no where slowly. This book had taken me almost six days to read and I never complete it which is a first for me because I was procrastinating reading because I disliked the story from the beginning. I won't be reading any books in this series again.

Rating: 1/5

The Protector (Sons of Texas #2)

The Protector

(This review is based on the ARC provided by the publisher via Net Galley)

This is the second book in the Sons of Texas series and it follows the story of Mia and Cullen. I loved this book as much as I loved the first book because it keeps both the suspense and romance alive as well as it gives many answers to the mystery that has been unfolding from the first book. Cullen's character was lighter and more playful than his brother and I really enjoyed his alpha male and protector side. I also loved Mia's character because she was strong and independent and could fend for herself. The chemistry between Cullen and Mia was off the charts and I really enjoyed their heart to heart scenes. The writing in this book was again flawless and Donna didn't fail it keeping the reader intrigued throughout the book. This series has made me a fan of Donna Grant and her characters and I am eagerly waiting the last book in this series.

Rating: 4.5/5

Improper Conduct (Chicago Heat #2)

Improper Conduct

(This review is based on the ARC provided by the publisher via Net Galley)

This is the second book in the Chicago Heat series and thank god it can be read as a stand alone because I had not read the first book in the series. For me this was an average book which had its both ups and downs. It is the typical story of a rich girl and poor boy who fall in love and the parents and money come in between their relationship. It was my first time reading a book by Patricia Rosemoor and I found myself sometimes getting confused with the triple point of view writing style, which was a big downfall for me. The characters were kind of cliche and at many points in the book I found myself disliking Isabel's character because she was stuffy and judgmental. I liked Nick's character because he wanted to help those in need because he understood their circumstances. The chemistry and sex scenes were steaming hot and were well written. Overall there is nothing special about the book, its just a cliche love story from a different angle. 

Rating: 3/5

Where My Heart Breaks (A Willoughby Inn Love Story #1)

Where My Heart Breaks

This was a fairly good romance novel which kept me intrigued till the HEA at the end. I enjoyed the small charming town of Bleckerville with the background of a famous novel and love story.  It was my first time reading a book by Ivy Sinclair and I liked her writing style, but I would have enjoyed a dual point of view more because I felt I barely knew and understood Reed's character.  I liked Kate's character because she showed strength and independence as well as she was able to grow and learn from her past mistakes. I am a sucker for alpha males so I had a soft spot for Reed who wasn't as much of a bad boy as he was made to be.  The chemistry between Reed and Kate was hot especially the sexual tension between them at the beginning of the book. I loved the back drop of the fictional novel that had taken place in Willoughby Inn because it made the book dream like which was a good touch. I enjoyed the secondary characters especially Patrick and Miller because they were well conceived and written. This was a good start to the series and I am looking forward to the rest of the series.

Rating: 3.5/5

She's Gotta Be Mine (Cottonmouth #1)

She's Gotta Be Mine

There was nothing special about this in fact I found it quite average and annoying in some parts. Firstly, I could not stand the female protagonist Roberta/Bobbies because she was chasing her husband after he left her for another woman. Also she didn't want to change her life for herself, but was in fact doing it to show her husband. I also find her inner dialogue with her old self very stupid and annoying.  I liked Nick's character because he didn't care what people thought about him and I especially loved seeing him when he got jealous. The writing in the book was good, but at times I felt the story was dragging. The chemistry between Nick and Bobbies was good and their intimate scenes were well written. I enjoyed the suspense aspect of the story especially the twist at the end. This book kind of disappointed me, so I won't be reading the rest of the series.

Rating: 2.5/5

Not The One (London Lovers #4) (Lost in London #1)

Not The One

This is the first time I have had such mixed emotions for a book because I found this book both annoying and at the same time completely addictive. I kept on telling myself I am going to stop reading the book, but I could not bring myself to put the book down.  The reason I found the book annoying was that I could not get over Reyna cheating with her best friends boyfriend, it is just something I am totally against. It has been a while since I read a book with such dark and intense emotions and I found it addicting because the characters seemed to just pull you into their emotional roller coaster.  The writing in the book was flawless and exceptional, it has been a while since I have been so captivated with a book. I enjoyed the character development of Reyna because she was trying to improve herself and sort out her problems. Liam's character at times just did not know what he wants because one moment he loves Reyna and the next he doesn't want to be with her. Hayden's character was a good addition to the book because it brought drama and highlighted Reyna's problems. The secondary characters were well developed and brought some lightness to this dark book especially with Frank's vibrant personality. The chemistry between Liam and Reyna was good, but I did not like how Reyna used to treat Hayden's especially after sex. This was my first time reading a book by Amy Dawson and I have become a fan of her extraordinary writing.

Rating: 4/5
