Privacy Policy, GDPR and stuff…

Privacy Policy, GDPR and other fun things Disclaimer: I am not a lawyer, and you should not use this post as legal advice! This is just my take on what needs to be done in order to be in compliance with the GDPR, and a little bit about Privacy Policy and why we need them. If you have a blog, you have probably heard of the new regulations from the EU. And they sure do apply to all of us. What it means, is that each blog needs to have a Privacy Policy, and also a secure connection, including SSL. My privacy policy is pretty straight forward, and I may need to add a few things to it, but I […]

Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts #152 – Good Girl

Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts #152 Welcome to Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts, an original weekly meme hosted here at (un)Conventional Bookviews.

Review: A Thousand Perfect Notes – C.G. Drews

Review: A Thousand Perfect Notes – C.G. Drews

A Thousand Perfect Notes is such a dark tale, where, at the beginning, there seems to be no hope. Then August enters Beck’s life and shows him that there is more. And wanting more can be dangerous… Story: While there is definitely a lot of darkness in A Thousand Perfect Notes – especially for Beck – there is also music, love, tenderness, and a tiny slice of hope. Because of health problems, Beck’s mother had to stop playing the piano. And so, she put all of her own hopes and dreams on her son. She fled the continent and installed her little family of tree – plus an extravagant piano – at the opposite side of the world. Because Beck’s […]

Review: Good Girl – Jana Aston

Review: Good Girl – Jana Aston

Good Girl was delightful! Aston did well – she even made me love her virgin heroine (which is truly a feat, I usually don’t enjoy virgin heroines in my romances). And there was so much humor, and all the feels. Where do I even start with Good Girl? It was so much fun! But it was also very, very hot. Lydia is not your typical romance heroine, that’s for sure. She’s a little naïve. A lot fun. Very organized. A great friend. And she works hard. She really want’s to get rid of her pesky virginity though. In fact, that’s been the case for quite a while. She just hasn’t really felt like ripping her clothes off for anyone so […]

Weekend Wrap-up #237 – I’m Too Cocky For My Shirt…

Weekend Wrap-up #237 – I’m Too Cocky For My Shirt…

Weekend Wrap-up is where I share my new books, as well as what happened here at (un)Conventional Bookviews and elsewhere in the blogoshpere. I’m linking up with the usual suspects, AKA Team Tynga’s Reviews and Caffeinated Reviewer. STS #237 Stacking The Shelves, hosted by Tynga’s Reviews and Reading Reality is all about the latest additions to my library – virtual or actual, with books that are  bought, borrowed, won or ARCs  I will (probably) be reading soon. Without further ado, here’s what I added to my bloated shelves this past week: Thank you, Lyrical Press, Vesuvian Books, Montlake Romance, St. Martin’s Press, and NetGalley! I purchased a whole lot of books with the word cocky in the title… 15, to be exact. Because […]

Safe and Sexy #33 – The Good Luck Sister

Safe and Sexy #33 – The Good Luck Sister

Safe and Sexy #33 Thinking of my romances and safe sex at the same time started when I wrote my discussion post with the same name a long time ago! Not too long after, the idea of sharing quotes about that ensured that the feature Safe and Sexy was born. It’s where I will share a quote from a story I have read, and where there is a lot of hotness and sexiness, but where they still take the time to be safe! It’s important to me to read books that make me dream, but I also want them to be somewhat realistic. And to me, characters seem realistic when they take care of themselves and their partner(s)! Safe sex is […]

Review: The Good Luck Sister – Jill Shalvis

Review: The Good Luck Sister – Jill Shalvis

The Good Luck Sister is yet another feel-good romance from Shalvis! I really enjoyed getting to know Tilly and Dylan better! Story: The Good Luck Sister is short, but sweet. It’s set several years after Lost and Found Sisters, and it shows Tilly all grown up. But still confused about life. And still sharing her wisdom at the beginning of the chapters. I loved that while Tilly was now an adult, there were traits of her character she still had from her teens. She is not one to forgive easily, and if she feels like she’s been faulted, she’s stoic. The Good Luck Sister showed that she is capable of letting the past go, though. But not without the other […]

Review: Marek – Sawyer Bennett

Review: Marek – Sawyer Bennett

Marek was a really good second-chance-at-love story, and I really enjoyed getting to know the background for his and Gracen’s break-up. Story: I have to say that in the beginning of the story, Marek acted like a jerk. There really is no other word for it – and while I could totally understand his anger and hurt, he did not try to make things better. Gracen was a real trooper, though, and did her best to take Marek’s anger in stride. And I really enjoyed how present Lilly was to the storyline. It’s not easy to have a hot romance while also including a young child! As Gracen and Marek got to know each other again, it was obvious they […]
