Another favorite from one of my all time favorite authors!!! This one involves a cruz with a doctor called Dr.Cruz… need I say more? (also it will hit you straight in the FEELS. You’ve been warned *cries*)

Only a Breath Apart by Kate McGarry

An old favorite of mine that has all the YA goodness/summer energy/ swoony romance a girl could want. Highly recommend if your looking for something light and dreamy this summer! 

The Chase by Elle Kennedy

While this one doesn’t technically take place during the summer… it still gives me the soft, warm feelings of a summer read and the banter in this is to die for. Great series for summer binge reading!

My Killer Vacation by Tessa Bailey

If your looking for something quick, smutty, and highly entertaining with a side of murder mystery? Than this is the book for you mi amigo. Tessa Bailey writes 10/10 dirty talk and this book is no exception – great summer read!

It Happened One Summer by Tessa Bailey

Another all time favorite of mine by Tessa Bailey! This one takes place in a dive bar in Washington with a coastal cliff… and the summer getaway energy is strong in this one my friend. I loved the characters in this one and I guarantee you will fly through this one if your looking for a unputdownable beach read. 

The Royals Next Door by Karina Halle

I love this one!! If your looking for snarky banter with a sexy british bodyguard then this is the book you need in your life this summer. So many cute moments this books will have you blushing and giggling like a school girl. Plus the protectiveness in this book is so great! Highly recommend! 

Broken Beautiful Hearts by Kami Garcia

If your looking for a book that will have your heart hurting, if you are a reader who lives for the angst, the tension, the PAIN of reading than this book is the one you will want your hands on ASAP. I loved every tender, heart breaking moment of this – so good!

Hit the Spot by J. Daniels

If you want 0% plot and 100% sexy times…. this is the book my friend. No plot. Zero, zip, nada. Spice sprinkled in with banter and the faint wisp of plot line this is the read that will steam up your reading glasses. Highly recommend if your looking for something quick snd dirty to spice up your summer reading TBR.

Hello hello there my little reading friends? How are we doing today?

Well if the title was any indication than you would know that last month was not my most successful reading endeavor. 

BUT we are ignoring that in favor of the candy coated little snacks that DID grace my fingertips last month.

That being said even though I was busy (all this life is getting in the way of my reading time smh) I was able to read some golden coated gems in the form of books that I throughly enjoyed!

On to the books!

What I read this month: 

Dark Lover by J.R. Ward – 5 stars

This book was great. I throughly/deeply/completely am enamored with the sexiness that is Wrath. He is everything and its safe to say I need more. I was throughly entertained with this one and I loved the side characters! So good!

Scarred by Emily Mcintire – 4 stars

This was pretty good. I was entertained. I was flipping the pages. Really enjoyed the first three quarters of this but the end just became a bit overdone for me. Still a really solid read!

Royally Screwed by Emma Chase – 5 stars

This book is really great! Think Princess Diaries 2 but make it dirty and make the prince a self centered, sex obsessed rebel running away from home!! This book read like a rom-com you genuinely didn’t want to end!! I loved the characters, the make over scenes, and the genuine chemistry between the characters – SO good!! Not to mention this book was also hilarious and I could not stop laughing. Great if you want a princess/prince filled dreamy read with a touch of reality. Highly recommend! 

Tangled by Emma Chase – 3.5 stars

OMG this book. Let me tell you if your looking for something super different and super quirky than this is the book for you. Emma Chase knows how to write a guy character that will have you tearing you hair out and seconds away from throwing the book across the room. Seriously I could not decide if I was routing for this man or if I wanted him to fail spectacularly. But at the end I was kinda feeling bad for him and I started pulling for the steamy filled office romance that was Kate and Drew. Will I read the sequel? Probably not. But did I enjoy this one? Yes, yes I did. 

The Secret of Ella and Micha  by Jessica Sorensen- 5 stars

AHHHHH Jessica Sorensen knows how to write a book that pulls at my weak little frail heart!!! This book is just classic goldeness that I will never get tired of reading. Ella and Micha are childhood neighbors that are pulled apart due to a tragic incident that happens to Ellas mother and let me tell you my heart was stretched like putty during this one. I didn’t have answers and was left searching for them desperately while simultaneously becoming deeply attached my to man Micha *sexiness encompassed*. This book was just *chefs kiss* and the romance had me invested the whole time – can not wait to read book two!! 

Down London Road by Samantha Young – 5 stars

UGHHHH THIS BOOK. I do not cry very easily. I do not cry while reading books. I sometimes cry while watching movies. 

I cried while reading this book. 

That is all. This book destroyed me in every way possible. I connected with Jo so much on so many levels and Cam was just ughhhhhhh I need a man like this to exist in real life. This series is just so amazing

Ana Maria and the Fox by Liana De La Rosa – 5 starsMy Review

This book surprised me in the best way! Gideon was such a compassionate, stable, and trustworthy man I simply adored the way he was enamored by Ana Maria! Not to mention the amazing supportive and touching interactions with Ana Marias sisters had me both routing and swooning for every storyline! This book was just so comforting and sweet and cute!!! I loved it – highly recommend if your looking for a great romance with a touch of Mexican history thrown in! 


What about you all??? Read any of the books above? Have any on your TBR? Lets chat it up in the comments below!



Ana Maria and The Fox

by Liana De La Rosa

Rating: 5/5 stars


My Review:

Well this book was a delicious little surprise I was not expecting. 

I admit, I may have picked this one up based on the pretty cover alone …. (I may be suffering from a weakness for beautiful shiny covers thank you very much). That being said this beautiful gem of a cover not only had a gorgeous candy coated outside but a decadent, rich, and flavorful inside!

This book was magical! Taking place in foggy London, Ana Maria arrives on the run with her two sisters her father having sent them away due to it being too dangerous for them to stay in Mexico. After being thrown into the limelight Ana Maria and her sisters struggle to adjust to life in London after engaging  in a wave of gatherings, balls, and social calls but must admit they are beginning to enjoy the small slice of freedom London has offered them.   

Enter Gideon…. (my LOVE). Proper, posed, collected Gideon is on a mission and no one is going to distract him from his political goals… that is until Ana Maria sweeps into the room and steals all of his focus ๐Ÿ˜‰

I must say I was not expecting to love the ABSOLUTE SLOW BURN in this book!!! Every touch, every interaction was so composed and so lingering with underlying attraction that I was DYING from anticipation and could not turn the pages fast enough. The soft love that develops between these two is addicting to watch unfold and I was throughly engaged until the very end!!

I mean the straight up CHEMISTRY between these two was so perfectly plotted that I could not help but route for them and yearn for them all at the same time. I appreciated the way it took its time to unravel, toss in high political stakes, and witty supportive interactions with Ana Marias sisters and I was completely enthralled the whole time!!! 

Overall it’s safe to say my expectations were completely blown out of the water with this one and I love how Mexican history was incorporated throughout the book. Not to mention I am now 100% invested in her sisters flirtations with Captain Dawson and the Duke of Mitchell and I NEED the next books already!!!

If your looking for a slow burn, sweet, enthralling romance with a touch of history than I highly recommend this book! So good!!
