Review | The Roommate

When I saw this book on NetGalley, I knew I needed to read it. Unfortunately, life got in the way, which means I ended up buying the audiobook instead. I tend to buy the audiobook anytime I’m late in the review game. I’m delighted that I bought the audiobook because the narrators were great! Brittany Pressley & Teddy Hamilton brought the book to life. At times, I did wish that the female voices were just a bit different, but other than that, they did a fantastic job.

With COVID-19 and a lot of personal issues, I’ve been filling my life with romance, and this book was exactly what I needed. The Roommate is one of those books that will make you smile. It was well written, humorous, and incredibly spicy. Don’t let the cutesy cover fool you. This book packs a lot of steam, and I was here for it.

Review | The Boyfriend Project

I haven’t read a book by Farrah Rochon, so when I saw The Boyfriend Project offered up on NetGalley, I had to jump at the opportunity. Luckily for me, I also received the audiobook from Libro.fm through their influencers program. I’ve been struggling with reading books so listening to the audiobook was a glorious thing. Je Nie Fleming did a fantastic job narrating this book. I’m so impressed with her narrations that I added her to my favorite narrator’s list.

Review | Deal With The Devil

This book was everything I wanted and more. I’ve loved Kit Rocha since I found their Beyond series, so when I saw Tor picked up this book, I was so excited. I couldn’t wait to read this book. It’s honestly everything that I would have wanted. I’m delighted that MacMillian removed the ebook embargo so that I didn’t have to wait three months to read it. But trust me, this book would have been worth the wait.

Review | Take a Hint, Dani Brown

As many of you know, Talia Hibbert quickly became one of my favorite romance authors last year. So, I was extremely excited to get the ARC of Take a Hint, Dani Brown. Unfortunately, due to a death in the family, this book went to the back burner. I finally found the energy to read, but my focus was all over the place. Instead of reading the ARC, I bought the audiobook from Libro.fm and dived in.

Review | Devolution by Max Brooks

When I saw that Max Brooks had a new book out, I had to jump out and request it from NetGalley! World War Z is one of the top books I have read and one that I always recommend, so I couldn’t wait to get started on Devolution! Unfortunately, life happened, and I couldn’t seem to focus enough to pick this book up. Luckily, Libro.FM came swooping in with this audiobook as an option for their influencer program.

Review | Black Tangled Heart by Samantha Young

Black Tangled Heart lives up to its title. Each character is tangled up with pain to the point where I questioned if some of the characters were redeemable. In the first half of the book, we got to see Jane and Jamie grow up, and I loved watching their relationship flourish. Both characters were well written, and I enjoyed seeing them grow up. With that said, I have to say that I struggled to read some of the sexual scenes.

Review | The Happy Ever After Playlist

The Happy Ever After Playlist is the first Abby Jimenez book that I have read. It can be read as a standalone, which made me happy seeing as Libro.fm gave me this one as part of their influencer program. Luckily for me, I didn’t look at the narrators. Look, so many people LOVE Erin Mallon, but I don’t. Her narrations of female characters tend to grate on my nerves. I tend to avoid any of the books she narrates, which makes me sad because she narrates some fantastic books. With all that said, I found that if I speed up her narrations, she isn’t terrible. Zachary Weber, as always, was fantastic.
