Book: Wayward Son by Rainbow Rowell
I kind of feel like nothing happened. Like, what was the point of the book? I enjoyed the addition of Shep. But the number of back and forth POVs got really annoying, especially when they didn’t add much and were mostly just repetitive. And I wanted more progress with the Baz/Simon relationship, it just stalled. Interested to see where the 3rd book goes though.
Book: Blurred Lines by Lauren Layne
I liked the first few chapters of the book where they were actually friends. But things kind of went off the rails when they started hooking up. It was a very one-track book, too, it was all about sex. Even the first conversations with her mom were about sex.
Book: Accidentally In Love by Laura Drewry
Surprisingly, I really enjoyed this! I ended up really liking Ellie and her and Brett were super adorable together. I wasn’t planning on reading Maya’s book but since this one was so cute I might have to check it out.
Book: Love Irresistibly by Julie James
Had to bump this rating up on the re-read, I just love both Brooke and Cole so much and their relationship is so natural and easy. I also love their professional life, often I don’t enjoy the real lives of characters in romance novels because they feel so fake but their careers and friends were so interesting and really added to their personalities and the book.
Book: Magnolia by Kristi Cook
Book: Prima Donna by Laura Drewry
This was exactly what I expected it to be – which is a good thing! It was a little tropey, and I didn’t like the insta loveyness from Carter and the few weird macho comments. But the story flowed well and Reegan and Carter were both interesting and their relationship progressed at a realistic pace.
Book: Plain Jayne by Laura Drewry
This book had lots of potential but it was too long and drawn out. I also didn’t really like Nick as a love interest. I did, however, really like Carter so I’m going to read the next book and hope that it’s a little more to the point. Some good thoughts here and here. Also, the resolution with her Grandma? So weird.
