This book has been on my radar since I read the blurb months and months ago. Signa is twenty years old and at this point in her life, just waiting until the day she can claim her inheritance and be done with all the “caretakers” in her life. They use her for her money and […]
[Portia’s Review]: Love on the Brain by Ali Hazelwood
I, like most other people, loved Ali Hazelwood’s novel The Love Hypothesis. So I was just as excited as everyone else for this book! Unfortunately, there is not a ton to say about this book. While it is completely likeable, I mean it is really cute…. it also felt like a replica of The Love […]
[Portia’s Review]: Blind Side by Kandi Steiner
I really do enjoy a good fake dating trope, especially in New Adult books. Blind Side by Kandi Steiner might be one of the better NA fake dating books I have ever read, and boy was it SPICY (for contemporary, college age NA anyway). Oh and FYI, while this can be read as a stand […]

[Emily’s Review]: Never Been Kissed by Timothy Janovsky
I DNF’d this book at 69%. That is a lot of book to commit to, to not finish.Yet here we are. This is a book about a pretentious film studies “expert”, written by a pretentious film studies “expert” for other pretentious film studies “experts”. The incessant and unnecessary mention of obscure vintage television shows, actors […]
[Portia’s Review]: Meant To Be (Twist of Fate #1) by Jennifer Probst
Meant to be is the first in a new series by Jennifer Probst that follows the lives of 3 best friends, with a book dedicated to each. This book called to me because I love a surprise/accidental pregnancy trope! For the most part I think this book was fine. It was a quick, easy read. […]
[Emily’s Review]: A Forgery of Roses by Jessica S Olson
Myra Whitlock has a gift. One many would kill for.
She’s an artist whose portraits alter people’s real-life bodies, a talent she must hide from those who would kidnap, blackmail, and worse in order to control it. Guarding that secret is the only way to keep her younger sister safe now that their parents are gone.
But one frigid night, the governor’s wife discovers the truth and threatens to expose Myra if she does not complete a special portrait that would resurrect the governor’s dead son. Desperate, Myra ventures to his legendary stone mansion.
Once she arrives, however, it becomes clear the boy’s death was no accident. Someone dangerous lurks within these glittering halls. Someone harboring a disturbing obsession with portrait magic.
Myra cannot do the painting until she knows what really happened, so she turns to the governor’s older son, a captivating redheaded poet. Together, they delve into the family’s most shadowed affairs, racing to uncover the truth before the secret Myra spent her life concealing makes her the killer’s next victim.
[Portia’s Review:] Fair Catch by Kandi Steiner
I’ve read a handful of Kandi Steiner novels, and I love them so much I have reread some, and one has become a top favorite romance comfort read for me (Revelry, SWOON). So when I had the chance to read this New Adult romance I was so excited. There was only one thing that worried […]
