Quick & entertaining. Typical Evanovich fare except her son finally gets writing credit after ghost writing for who knows how long. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

💙💙💙💙 I really liked this. The characters are multidimensional including the parents. So much of YA has absent/terrible parents & this isn‘t like that. The kids aren‘t perfect & do some stupid stuff. It‘s hard to read about how Sebastian grapples with who he is and how that affects his place in his family and his community. The ending is unrealistic and kind of weak or this would be five ⭐️. #romantsy

CarolynM I completely agree with your review. It's such a shame about the ending, I'm sure it could have been done better. 2w

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️A solid follow up to the first book. Bianca is #badass & holy cliffhanger. Hopefully my hold for book 3 won‘t really take 6 months.

I loved the beginning & middle of this. The meet cute, the snark & banter. But when they got together it didn‘t live up to the buildup. The 🔥 was missing and the dark moment & his subsequent weird behavior almost made me bail. Meh. #romantsy

❤️💛💚💙💜 I loved this so hard. It‘s all my fave things. Enemies to lovers, snarky banter, ridiculously embarrassing incidents, Texas, politics and royals. Alex & Henry are adorable & surely someone will make a movie. I am so there for that when it happens. #romantsy

Not in database. Cornell is injured in accident that kills his best friend. Unbeknownst to him, the best friend‘s son, Rhys, has had a torch for him for years. Cornell moves in with Rhys temporarily because he needs care & it turns out Rhys is just the Daddy he needs. This could have been an ick factor story but Nora is so good that it‘s not. ❤️❤️❤️❤️ #kindleunlimited #romantsy

It would have been a stronger finish without the last 1.5 chapters but I understand why she didn‘t end it there. I ugly cried through several parts of this one. #romantsy 👑👑👑👑

American Prince | Sierra Simone
post image

Book 2 of King Arthur retelling with references to Achilles & Patroclus and The Little Prince. This was set in a mostly accurate world with a fictional enemy. She took liberties with the order of Presidential succession which I didn‘t care for simply because it didn‘t mesh with the rest of the world building and felt lazy. High level of angst and drama. 👑👑👑👑 #romantsy

I put off reading this because I didn‘t think I would like it. I was wrong. But I‘m glad I waited until trilogy was done because the cliffhangers would have ticked me off. This King Arthur retelling starts a little slow but then BAM! This makes me think of soap operas and 80s era bodice rippers and epic sagas. 👑👑👑👑#romantsy

This ought to be one long book instead of 3 part trilogy with cliffhangers. I don‘t really like Keira & Mount is a total alphahole. But the story is interesting enough that I will read book 3 whenever it comes in on my library hold. #romantsy ❤️❤️❤️

Not part of Hot off the Ice series but in the same universe. Connor is a former marine who has become the guardian of his four half siblings after tragic accident & Beau is minor league hockey player in town for the season. I liked these kids a lot more than most kids in #romantsy stories. Connor & Beau were adorable. Bonus points for small town #Texas setting. ❤️❤️❤️❤️

jpmcwisemorgan I started when there was only the first book so I‘ve had to remember to check.

There are two connected series right now. 2mo
