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 […]

Chat Review: Dear Bridget, I Want You – Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward

Chat Review: Dear Bridget, I Want You – Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward

Dear Bridget, I Want you is a fun and sexy read – and it was even more so because I buddy-read it with my blogger wife, Brandee @ Bookworm Brandee. Lexxie: Hello dahling 🙂 I loved Dear Bridget!!! And I’m happy you did, too! I’ll put my comments underneath yours 😉 Brandee: I’m so happy we decided to buddy-read this one, wifey. I really enjoyed it. I felt Keeland and Ward did well in fleshing out the characters, creating a compelling story, and combining humor with some serious-ness as well. Lexxie : I loved that we were able to buddy-read this, too – FINALLY, right? They did flesh out the characters, and the humor had me laughing really hard – […]

Review: The Schemer – Avery Flynn

Review: The Schemer – Avery Flynn

The Schemer was a fun, hot read, where the main characters did everything they could not to fall in love with each other. Story: Both Tyler and Everly made me swoon! The Schemer – Tyler, thought he had everything he had ever dreamed of. Until Everly moved into the apartment above his. Stomping her high heals at all hours of the day and night, and generally pissing him off. Everly knew from the first time they met that Tyler was not the guy for her. Embarrassed of his humble upbringing, he didn’t even speak in his Waterbury accent anymore. And she was a proud Riverside woman. Never one to let her past bring her down! The Schemer happens just after […]

Review: Sure Thing – Jana Aston

Review: Sure Thing – Jana Aston

Sure Thing made me laugh out loud more than once, and it also made me swoon. The mix of humour and steaminess was perfectly balanced! Story: Violet steps in for her identical twin, Daisy, for a historical tour at the tour company where she works. At the hotel bar the first evening, Violet decides to try some seducing advice on the sexy stranger across the bar. After reading about a trick of  three seconds of eye-contact, then a smile, she wants to see if it works. And boy, does it work. Soon after, she receives a new drink, and the stranger comes to sit with her. Aston is very good at romcom, she mixes humour and hotness seamlessly, and it […]

Review: Love in Transit – Jana Aston et al

Review: Love in Transit – Jana Aston et al

There are six quite long novellas included in Love in Transit, and apart from the same blurb, the stories are very different. Stories: I really enjoyed most of the stories, and I found it funny that they were so different – it is really proof that a summary doesn’t really mean much. Love in Transit is not only six different stories, they are also written by six different authors. I found the stories to be enticing, with good character development and some of them were also very funny. I have to admit that Time Square by Jana Aston was my favorite. She has a way to blend romance and comedy to perfection, and I laughed out loud more than once. […]

Review: Fling – Jana Aston

Review: Fling – Jana Aston

Fling has Aston’s trademark humor, and I laughed out loud more than once. There was also a very relatable work-place romance, characters I wanted to spend more time with, and some glorious hotness! I had already met Sandra and Gabe, very briefly, in Right by the same author, and I loved seeing what they were up to after Everly’s shenanigans at the New Year’s Party in Fling! Sandra is the kind of efficient administrative assistant I’m sure every boss would like to have! She does have a naughty side, though, but she doesn’t let it out to play at work. Apart from that one time during a quarterly meeting when her best friend, Preston, has changed a quiz about the […]

#Review Only You – Denise Grover Swank

#Review Only You – Denise Grover Swank

Only You has a lot of humor, flirty dialogues and characters who think they should stay far away from anything that resembles love… Romantic comedy at is finest – Only You fits the bill, for sure. Between the whirlwind romance, the reluctant couple, the dragon-lady mother-in-law from hell and the fact that Holly didn’t really trust anyone, everything seemed to indicate that there were too many obstacles in the way of happiness for Kevin and Holly. While there is a lot of fun and lightness in Only You, there are some more serious themes explored as well. Like the fact that Holly’s parents were killed in a car accident when she was only five. Or how her grandmother, who raised her […]
