Loved the premise and the narration... felt incomplete. So much steamier than her traditionally published stuff!

I am quite smitten with this trilogy so far. It is steamy, fun, relatable, with just a taste of angst. Wrong to Need You was a genuine pleasure to read. I look forward to the next book.

Who's got a romance novel (or two! or three!) planned for #24in48!? 🙋(Also, if you haven't already signed up for next weekend's #readathon, what are you waiting for!?) .

BeansPage I just wanted to apologize. I had no idea that the graphic actually belonged to you I found it on Google. and for the future all you had to do was ask nicely for me to take it down. I did not know that you even existed until a few minutes ago. There's no need to be nasty about these things. 4y
24in48 People commented on your post days ago, telling you that we existed and tagging us. You cannot pretend to not have known. Next time click through the image and figure out who you‘re stealing from first. 4y
BeansPage Seriously there is really no need to be nasty about this. And yes people told me that somebody else had posted a read-a-thon for the very next weekend and that some people were getting confused. However they did not tell me that you owned the graphic that I was using and the hashtag that I was using. And I didn't steal from anybody. Google is fair play. Perhaps you should think about trademarking. 4y

New chair (thanks Target!) for the new house with a new romance series! I loved Hate to Want You so much, figured I could get the rest of them. #romantsy

CaseyTheCanadianLesbrarian The rest of the series is so good too!! 5y
brennahawleycraig @CaseyTheCanadianLesbrarian I guessed the couple for the second book, but only one half of the one in the third! If I didn‘t have a book due back to the library soon I would be jumping right in! 5y

This was fantastic! Hot, sweet, with engaging characters. I tend to read more historical than contemporary romance, but @EloisaJames has such good things to say about Alisha Rai's books that I had to see for myself. I wasn't disappointed! #romantsy

I love this series so much! It‘s got so much depth to it that most romances don‘t have and the characters are so wonderful. Sadia is so amazing and her and Jackson‘s relationship just goes by so fast! It‘s a longer romance and I decided to stay up and read it instead of sleeping because I had to know how it ended. I cannot wait till the third comes out because I really just don‘t want to leave all of these characters lives!

Tbh, I didn't enjoy this one quite as much as the first in the series, which is a bit disappointing since it has a bi heroine that I was excited about, but I still really liked it! There was just something about their dynamic that didn't 100% jive for me. But I thought this book did a great job of tackling 'falling in love w/ sibling's widow' realistically, while also lovingly fleshing out both of the characters. Plus: both heroine/hero are POC!

Well I managed to finish this today even though I took time out to go see The Shape of Water and come down with my husband‘s virus. Now I feel crappy but really enjoyed getting to know Sadia and Jackson and watch their steamy romance blossom!

Guys, this book. I loved how the male lead was physically an alpha but a complete beta. Such a great play on the trope. The female has a bit of dom in her but it does not go into S&M at all. So many family issues to still work out but things are coming along for many of them. There is some forbidden romance but the real appeal is the steam between the leads. Also love how this author features POC. A very big deal for romance. #romantsy

I‘ve been trying to figure out what kind of romance reader I am. Answer: THIS KIND. This book is perfect, even better than the first in the series. Who would have known this archaeologist, obsessed with all things historical, would find her jam in contemporary romance? Time to go read Alisha Rai‘s entire back catalog!!! I NEED MORE NOW. #romantsy

Finished my last final exam for this semester this morning so I can finally talk about how amazing this book is. I loved reading every single moment of this books. It's so good. So damn good! Sadia and Jackson are just 😍😍😍! I relate to Sadia so much as well, especially when it comes to scheduling everything to maintain a semblance of control. Alisha Rai knocked it out of the park again! YOU SHOULD GO READ THIS BOOK!

Y'all. Every time I think Alisha's written her best book, she turns around and churns out her next best one. This series is my favorite of hers. Bi-Pakistani-American protagonist, sex positive, emphasis on familial relationships, and steamy. Pick it up.
