Book Review: Lover Unveiled (Black Dagger Brotherhood #19) by J. R. Ward | About That Story
Lover Unveiled (Black Dagger Brotherhood #19) by J. R. Ward
Lover Unveiled was so exciting and entertaining to read. I loved the characters, details, and phenomenal build. I felt like this story was a game changer and I can't wait to find out what comes next in the series.


Book Review: Dream Spinner (Dream Team #3) by Kristen Ashley | About That Story
Dream Spinner (Dream Team #3) by Kristen Ashley
There's a reason Kristen Ashley is one of my favorite authors and this is it. Dream Spinner was freaking fantastic! Amazing story with incredible characters and a solid storyline that contained the perfect amount of humor and heat, drama and suspense, emotion, healing, and love. This had it all!


Book Review: Fallen Jester (Tin Gypsy #5) by Devney Perry | About That Story
Fallen Jester (Tin Gypsy #5) by Devney Perry
Fallen Jester was fantastic from beginning to end. I loved this surprise pregnancy trope with all the emotion, drama, sweetness, and love. I couldn't read it fast enough as Cassandra and Leo experienced so many ups and downs. Riven Knight has been a favorite but this one has given it a serious run for its money!


Book Review: Creed (Unfinished Hero #2) by Kristen Ashley | About That Story
Creed (Unfinished Hero #2) by Kristen Ashley
Creed was an emotional, painful, and passionate story and I loved every second. I loved Sylvie and Creed, learning all about them, and was caught up in the intensity of it all as they found their way back together.


Book Review: Raid (Unfinished Hero #3) by Kristen Ashley | About That Story
Raid (Unfinished Hero #2) by Kristen Ashley
Raid pulled me in right from the start and I swear there was never a time I wanted to stop. It was all-consuming and intense. I loved the drama, tension, and emotion. I loved the healing and love, and all the different bonds. This was an excellent read!



Book Review: How to Survive a Scandal (Rebels with a Cause #1) by Samara Parish
How to Survive a Scandal (Rebels with a Cause #1) by Samara Parish
How to Survive a Scandal was a refreshing and delightful read. It was incredibly entertaining right from the start. I loved the crazy situation Amelia and Benedict were in and the ups and downs of them getting to their happily ever after.


Book Review: Out of the Blue by Kathryn Nolan | About That Story
Out of the Blue by Kathryn Nolan
Out of the Blue was an entertaining and engaging story. I loved the animosity and chemistry between Serena and Cope, the building tension and mystery, and the lighter, fun moments that were mixed in. This made for a really great read!
