Review: Sweetest Taboo (S.I.N. #3)

This story was intense, emotional, and captivating. I was immediately pulled back in and on the edge of my seat. Great conclusion to the series!

Review: The Sexy One
by Lauren Blakely

 

I am so in love with this sweet yet very sexy story. It was so swoony with all these wonderfully touching moments. It was a butterflies-in-your-tummy inducing story. I loved it!

Beard Science

 

5-stars

 

Review: Beard Science (Winston Brothers #3)
by Penny Reid

 

This was above and beyond, a 6 star read for me!!!! I don’t think I can say enough positive things to explain just how deeply I loved this book and how much it moved me. Book hangover for days!!! ​The first line in my notes at 14% is "I can't take my eyes off the page. I feel overcome. I don't know how else to explain it." That feeling stuck with me through the entire book. It was so brilliantly written. To me it was perfection. I don't know how Penny Reid does it but I'm so thankful that she does.

Review: ​The Billionaire Next Door (Billionaire Bad Boys #2)
by Jessica Lemmon

 

Entertaining. Hot. Sweet. Sincere. It checked all my boxes of things I love. And Tag? Swoon worthy! I loved it!

  Keepsake

 

4-stars

 

Review: Keepsake (True North #3)
by Sarina Bowen

 

This was so, so good! Such an excellent story with this wonderful building friendship that turned into so much more for these two characters. A little broken and raw but so kind and sincere, I loved both Zach and Lark. I've been excited for Zach’s story since the first book so I loved getting to know his backstory.

It was a busy month! I updated my blog template (feel free to look around) and I’m still doing some tweaking. Sadly the formatting on a lot of my older posts is gone so I’ll have to update a few of them. There’s no way I can do them all though, I’ve been blogging for over three years and have countless posts so as Elsa says, I guess I’m going to have to let it go (not an easy task, lol!). So be forewarned, if I completely freak out, I might change it all back, lol! 

 

I shared lots of new reviews and new releases, a few On My Radars, I did a series read of The Royals (as in I become obsessed!), and offered up a few giveaways. October was definitely a fantastic month.

 

In preparation for the holidays I’ve lightened my schedule a bit but rest assured I’ll still have plenty to share.

 

Hope you all have a wonderful November. Thanks so much for being here.
