Review Recap: October 2016

This month I said goodbye to three different series and said hello to two new ones plus a handful of some already in progress. I loved them all. 9 new reviews to share this month – all awesome reads.

  Four Letter Word




Review: Four Letter Word (Dirty Deeds #1)

This was so amazing. Such a full, rich story with detailed characters full off passion and emotion. I was so mesmerized by the story and everything that was happening, I honestly feel blown away.

  Sweetest Taboo




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


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!

The Sexy One




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!

Review: Royally Screwed (Royally #1)

I don't think I could have loved this story anymore, it was fantastic! So entertaining and heartwarming with the best characters! I loved Nicolas and Oliva so much. :-)

To Love and to Cherish




Review: ​ To Love and to Cherish (The Wedding Belles #3)
by Lauren Layne


  This was fantastic. Loved every single second! It had great characters (hello swoony Brit!) and a delicious slow burn happening. Excellent read!

Beard Science




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.

The Billionaire Next Door




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!

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.
