Losing My Breath by J Rose Black

“Losing My Breath” by J Rose Black delivers a sweet contemporary romance where opposites attract. The lovely characters and real relationship make it a compelling read. Meridian, sweet and patient, offers hints of depth, but the narrative lacks a deep dive into her character. The standout is Callan, a former Marine clinging to routine, creating an internal conflict that sets this slow-burn romance apart. If you seek a heartfelt story with internal struggles, this is a must-read!

Butcher & Blackbird by Brynne Weaver

Absolutely captivated by Butcher & Blackbird by Brynne Weaver! An exhilarating blend of romance and darkness, this serial killer romcom breaks the mold with intense spice, a perfectly-paced romance, and well-rounded characters. Rowan and Sloan’s journey unfolds brilliantly, making it one of the healthiest dark romances. Highly recommend for fans of Mindf*ck series!

December 2023 Book Bracket – Semis and Finals

Semifinals Middlegame by Seanan McGuire – vs – The Hunting Moon by Susan Dennard So wow, this feels so unfair because these were my two favorite books reviewed this month! BOTH made me emotional. BOTH made me want to immediately re-read them. Middlegame made me cry and almost cry multiple times while at work. The Hunting Moon had me miss out on sleep as I binge read this when it came out because I couldn’t handle being distracted by folks at work (both were audiobooks.) Middlegame was a strong 4.5 stars only due to a small thing I disliked about the ending. The Hunting Moon was a full 5 stars because I absolutely loved everything about it. This is a really hard decision to make. The relationship between Roger and

December 2023 Book Bracket – Quarterfinals

Time for my December books to brawl for coveted position of best read of the month! Since there were nine books reviewed this month, I did not include The Woman in Me by Britney Spears, partly because it wouldn’t make for an even bracket but mostly because I didn’t think it was right to have a person’s life story go up against fiction. That said, let’s get on to the bracket! Bracket positions generated at random: Quarterfinals Ruthless Idols by Michelle Hercules – vs – Middlegame by Seanan McGuire Well this just seems pretty unfair on first glance. We’ve got a book two in a paranormal romance going up against a book one in a magic realism series. Both Ruthless Idols and Middlegame were just shy of getting a perfect

Hateful Heroes by Michelle Hercules

Honestly, I was disappointment with ‘Hateful Heroes’ by Michelle Hercules, the third book in the Gifted Academy series. While I enjoyed the first half of the book and its unraveling plot, the reverse harem began to feel unnecessary and devoid of relational depth compared to the leading duo, Bryce and Daisy.

The Sweetest Oblivion by Danielle Lori

I had mixed feelings about Danielle Lori’s “The Sweetest Oblivion.” There were some good elements, like the main characters’ unresolved attraction and Nico’s brutal action, but the mafia aspects and hasty love connection just didn’t do it for me.

A Holiday Lift by Corinne Michaels

A Holiday Lift by Corinne Michaels is a cute and quick Christmas romance. At only about 100 pages, I think this is definitely a good pick-up for anyone looking to start off the holiday season with a bang.

Faking Christmas by Kerry Winfrey

Faking Christmas by Kerry Winfrey delivers a delightful dose of fun and sweetness. Classic holiday romance tropes blend seamlessly in Laurel and Max’s story of forced proximity, fake marriage, and genuine connection. The slow-burning, genuine romance, devoid of spice, makes it a perfect, cozy holiday read. Highly recommended for a heartwarming experience!
