Book: I’ll Meet You There by Heather Demetrios
I don’t even know how to describe the love that I feel for this book. It’s so unassuming at first and then bam, before I know it, I’m fully obsessed and can’t stop thinking about this book. So much so that I can’t even read Windfall because I’m just reading it and thinking about how I wish I was reading I’ll Meet You There instead. Basically all of this.
Book: Fast Connection by Megan Erickson and Santino Hassell
I went into this book expecting the worst. I didn’t love the first book in this series and I very reluctantly pressed buy on this $1.33 ebook, but I’m glad that I did! I liked both Dominic and Luke, and their chemistry was spot on. There was maybe a bit too much family drama and the resolution of Dominic’s family issues was a little too neat and tidy for me. I wasn’t a big fan of the cameo appearances (am I ever?). I’m curious about the other two books in this series though so I might have to check them out.
Book: In A Perfect World by Trish Doller
I so wanted to like this book, but it fell really flat for me. There was too much going on and I didn’t care for any of the characters, what did Adam and Caroline see in each other that made them want to be together so badly? I just have no idea. There wasn’t enough depth to any of the story lines and had there been a focus on one or two things instead, I think this book would have been much better. Also, not a big fan of the ending.
Book: A Conjuring of Light by VE Schwab
I can’t exactly figure out how I felt about this book, I both loved and hated it. A good “negative” review here. But on the flip side, this and all this.
Book: The Mistake by Elle Kennedy
To be perfectly honest, this is probably my 4th reread but only the second time I’m marking it down. Sometimes, you just need to read a well written romance novel and this was a breath of fresh air after the disaster was Bittersweet. It’s really too bad that the rest of the series isn’t as good at this one.
Book: Bittersweet by Sarina Bowen
It’s probably a good thing I didn’t get around to reviewing this book until now because otherwise, this might have been a really nasty review. I didn’t buy a lot of the plot of this book. The whole restaurant business didn’t make sense. Why they would send an inexperienced person to Vermont as a buyer? Why would you order new equipment for cider if you didn’t have a contract? There were just so many things wrong with this book and the romance was only meh.
Sarina Bowen is officially off my to-buy list. I wavered on this since I did not like her other recent books but I gave into the good reviews for this one and was hugely disappointed. Never again.
Book: Letters to the Lost by Brigid Kemmerer
After about 30% of this book, I started to lose interest and it never really came back. It was a cute concept, and I liked Juliet and Declan but this book was at least 100 pages too long and it started meandering through the middle and then packed way too much in at the end. Everything was resolved way too quickly as well; all of a sudden Declan is fine with his mom and stepdad and Juliet is done thinking her mom is perfect. This is also one of those books that tries to pack in too many issues, it would have been better to fully flesh out a few. I feel like all the characters were very one dimensional and seemed surprised to find out that there are other sides to someone’s personality. But I really liked Rev and his friendship with Declan. And some of the dialog was great, I loved seeing Juliet, Declan and Rev together.
