The Truth About Happily Ever After by Karole Cozzo: Review & Giveaway

The Truth About Happily Ever After by Karole Cozzo: Review & Giveaway

Once again, Cozzo gives us a realistically romantic story of fairy tale proportions. A little note about the genre: The book is officially billed as YA, but the characters are all in college, so I think of it more as NA. I think it’s YA because there are no actual sex scenes (a few implied fade to black scenes) and it’s overall a sweet romance, appropriate for high schoolers, even younger ones (there is a bit […]

Letters to the Lost Review (AKA My Admiration for Brigid Kemmerer)

Letters to the Lost Review (AKA My Admiration for Brigid Kemmerer)

I have read every single one of Brigid Kemmerer’s books, and I have not been disappointed yet. When I first read the description of this one, I was a little surprised to see that it’s a straight-up contemporary (considering that her Elementals Series is paranormal and she wrote so many of those).  But as I read, I started to realize that I was falling in love with it for the same reasons that I fell […]

Long Way Home by Katie McGarry – 5 Star Review, Excerpt & Giveaway

Long Way Home by Katie McGarry – 5 Star Review, Excerpt & Giveaway

I’m telling you right now, Katie McGarry’s writing is downright addictive. This third book in the Thunder Road Series had me completely captivated from start to finish and there was no way I could put it down. Seriously, this is the type of book that gives my blog its name because I found myself falling deeper and deeper into the story and completely ignoring all those real world things that were calling for my attention. They […]

Pushing the Boundaries by Stacey Trombley – Review, Giveaway & Trombley’s Top Ten Addictions

This unique contemporary romance shines the spotlight on cultural differences and the ways that we sometimes judge based on expectation rather than reality.

Gilt Hollow by Lorie Langdon – Review for the Fall Favorite Things Blog Tour

Gilt Hollow by Lorie Langdon – Review for the Fall Favorite Things Blog Tour

Gilt Hollow feels more like a YA romance with a bit of mystery thrown in than like a true mystery, which suited me just fine. (In fact, that’s the way I prefer my mysteries since the romance element typically holds my attention more than the actual mystery does.) I cared a lot more about Willow and Ashton’s personal journeys than I did about who specifically killed their friend. Don’t get me wrong, there are definitely plenty of clues to […]

How to Keep Rolling After a Fall by Karole Cozzo – Review & Giveaway

This book was so much more than I expected it to be. At its heart, this is a story of redemption and forgiveness and finding your way past your worst choices. And, let’s face it, we all have choices we regret – it’s how we deal with them that matters. The synopsis does a great job of describing the plot, so I’ll jump right into my review. What Fed My Addiction: All the feels. This book […]
