Book Review: The Jackal (Black Dagger Brotherhood: Prison Camp #1) by J. R. Ward | About That Story
The Jackal (Black Dagger Brotherhood: Prison Camp #1) by J. R. Ward
The Jackal was absolutely epic! Everything around me melted away as I got lost in this world, caught up in the emotion, pain, and passion. It was incredibly intense and I hung on every detail and loved how it was woven together with an incredible build. It blew me away!


Book Review: A Heart of Blood and Ashes (A Gathering of Dragons #1) by Milla Vane | About That Story
A Heart of Blood and Ashes (A Gathering of Dragons #1) by Milla Vane
A Heart of Blood and Ashes was an epic and intense adventure that was thrilling and exciting to read. I loved the drama and passion and the incredible build to Maddek and Yvenne coming together. From beginning to end I was hooked!


Book Review: The Candle Palace (Jamison Valley #6) by Devney Perry | About That Story
The Candle Palace (Jamison Valley #6) by Devney Perry
The Candle Palace had a little bit of everything that I love, sweetness and longing, conflict and drama, a little heat, and a lot of love. It was a delightful read!


Book Review: The Viscount Who Loved Me (The Bridgertons #2) by Julia Quinn | About That Story
The Viscount Who Loved Me (Bridgertons #2) by Julia Quinn
I absolutely loved this! It was incredibly entertaining with hilariously witty and challenging banter, I loved the verbal sparring between Anthony and Kate! Their back and forth was perfection.


Book Review: Christmas in Quincy (The Edens #0.5) by Devney Perry | About That Story
Christmas in Quincy (The Edens #0.5) by Devney Perry
Christmas in Quincy was so fun, sweet, and entertaining! I love reading Devney Perry, I always feel like I'm coming home to these familiar places with really likable and relatable characters. This was just what I needed!


Book Review: Lock & Key (Lock & Key #1) by Cat Porter
Lock & Key (Lock & Key #1) by Cat Porter
Lock and Key was an intense story with really unique and broken characters that pulled me in. It was a raw and gritty second chance romance and I was consumed by this world, the culture, and the dynamics taking place. An excellent read!



Book Review: Pretend You're Mine (Benevolence #1) by Lucy Score
Pretend You're Mine (Benevolence #1) by Lucy Score
Pretend You’re Mine was so sweet and funny with the perfect mix of emotion and heart added. I was caught up in the lives of these delightful and complicated characters and couldn't wait for them to get their HEA.


By a Thread: A Grumpy Boss Romantic Comedy
I wanted my first audiobook of the year to be one of my Favorite Reads of 2020 so I went with By a Thread by Lucy Score. The narrators did a fantastic job. It had the perfect mix of banter, snark, and antagonism. Read my full review.


Complicated
Next up was Complicated by Kristen Ashley, which I am still listening to. Hixon and Greta are THE BEST! Read my full review.


things-to-note
I made new graphics! Well, I tweaked the one I use for my Recap posts (see above), and I made a new one for my Review posts. Thank goodness for Canva giving me ideas or I'd be lost. I ended up combining two different templates I was inspired by and creating my own in Photoshop Elements, then I added the fonts I normally use. Wa-la! New template. 

Are you on Instagram? This is the best place to follow me besides my blog. You can find me on Facebook and Twitter as well but I find I'm most active on Instagram when it comes to chatting. Follow me on Instagram HERE. If you're interested, you can always follow my reviews on Goodreads HERE. There's also Pinterest, which is a whole other thing, but I am such a visual person, it's one of my favorite places. Follow me on Pinterest HERE.

In case you missed it, I posted my Favorite Reads of 2020. It's a pretty big post full of all kinds of goodness. Read it HERE.

Thanks for stopping by and feel free to say hi. Be kind to yourself!
