Real Deal

Today is my dad’s birthday!!! In celebration, I decided to review a book about an awesome dad (because my dad is AWESOME. Ask anyone). Caveat: that’s pretty much where the similarities end between this character and my dad.

At the CEO’s Pleasure

Happy Administrative Professionals Day! I know what you’re thinking: “It’s weird to celebrate Administrative Professionals Day by writing about a book that essentially breaks the cardinal rule of being an administrative professional - no workplace relationships!” But I find that office romance novels make it very clear how integral administrative professionals really are for the success of a business.

The Princess Bride

It’s the end of February, and chances are you’ve had to watch at least one “romantic” movie that made you want to gag and roll your eyes. Don’t you wish that a movie could have romance without being super sappy? Maybe have a sword fight or two in there? Perhaps a harrowing battle with Rodents Of Unusual Size?

Worth the Weight

It is the second month of 2019 and I have to tell you guys - I am struggling to keep my New Year’s Resolutions going. I thought I'd review this book because it gave me an excuse to reread a book with a lot of body image-related themes, in the hope that it would give me a boost of confidence to help push me through February.

The Knocked Up Plan

Guys, I am really excited for this review! Why, you ask? Because it's my first requested review!!! My friend Deana sent me the link for The Knocked Up Plan, by Lauren Blakely, on Goodreads and asked me to review it. If you've read any of my reviews before, you probably won't be surprised to know that I actually own another Lauren Blakely book and, after reading the blurb, I figured this one was right up my ally. I was not disappointed.

Christmas Kiss

I came across Christmas Kiss (A Scottish Holiday Romance) (Kisses and Carriages Book 1), by L.L. Muir, because it was a free romance novel around the holidays and I was in the mood for a little Christmas cheer. I know that the holiday season is over and done with - I work in retail, so trust me, I know - but I decided to review this particular book because: 1) It's February - the month of romance - and "kiss" is in the title, and 2) This book makes references to classic works of romance, so it's kind of a double-whammy of perfection for the month of February.

The Selection

I first noticed The Selection, by Kiera Cass, at the Barnes & Noble in the Mayo Clinic when my sister was admitted there for a few days while I was in graduate school. I am a sucker for a YA dystopian story with a strong female lead and this one seemed right up my ally - there was romance, intrigue, and even a prince. The Selection is not a stand alone novel and that is pretty clear from the description of the book. So, I bought the series.

All Knighter

If you want a book with a sexy cajun marine who knows what he wants, a sassy heroine with daddy issues, and some really (really really) steamy sex scenes, All Knighter would be a good choice.
