Who thought peeling a potato could be so fraught with sexual tension? Seriously.
I adored I Kissed An Earl, the fourth book in Julie Anne Long’s Pennyroyal Green series. This book had a little bit of everything. You have forced proximity, pirates, enemies-to-lovers, adventures on the high sea and sexy potato peeling. What is not to like?

Who would have guessed that this book would have so many puppets in it and that the puppets would actually be so important to the story? I certainly didn’t expect that going in, but somehow Julie Anne Long has a way of making the unexpected work. I’ll be honest – this one felt like a little bit of a letdown after how amazing Like No Other Loverwas. That’s not to say this is a bad book. I still really enjoyed this one, but it felt like it was missing that special something to make it truly shine.
Y’all, I don’t think the Lykae books in theImmortals After Dark series are for me. I’ve been putting off writing this review for almost two months, and my feelings on it have really sunk in now. I did not like this book at all, and it is currently my least favorite in the entire series. The plot and the romance were incredibly lackluster and the only thing that I liked was the epilogue.
Since we first met the mysterious Marquess of Brandon in Her Night with the Duke, I’ve been dying to get his story and learn more about him! Diana Quincy delivered with The Marquess Makes His Move. It’s a bit of a wild ride, but it was a ride I enjoyed being on.
After not likingIt Happened One Summer, I went into this book with slightly lower expectations. And I’ve got to be honest – my feelings on this are a bit mixed. I liked the beginning and the build-up in Fox and Hannah’s relationship (something sorely lacking in Piper and Brendan’s relationship), but the final act of this novel is where the story lost me and made me a bit iffy on my overall feelings on it.
When it comes to Tessa Bailey’s books, they’re incredibly hit or miss for me. And this one was a big ole miss.
I know this book is incredibly popular, but it did not work for me. I found the characters to be unlikeable, the romance underdeveloped, and the writing awkward. Some of the choices also made me angry as the central conflict is based on a failure to communicate.
