⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5 I really enjoyed this book. A little too slow burn for my taste, but that last quarter was magical. And the characters were so wonderful.

I absolutely loved this book. Features a smart, successful woman. Diverse female lead. Banter is perfection. Will most definitely read it again. TW: domestic abuse (not by the hero)

This was a cute book. A little too slow for the first half, but adorable banter and a lot of pop culture references that I always love. You‘ve Got Mail meets Cyrano (or Roxanne)

Second in the Well Met series. A great follow up, but you should definitely read them in order. Halfway through I thought it had all be solved too quickly, and then BAM, DeLuca hit me with another obstacle. Thoroughly enjoyed this one and can‘t wait for number 3!

I was disappointed. I really loved the first two books in this series. And this book really had me for the first half. And then it just fell flat. The tension building ended up with no chemistry between the main characters. I was disappointed.

1. Yes, but not simultaneously. I will listen while I‘m driving or doing other things, but will read when I‘m able to sit and focus.

2. Audiobooks have gotten me through the pandemic. I couldn‘t focus enough to read, but I could listen whole crocheting or cleaning or playing mindless games on my phone. I was able to read so many books this way!!

I never would have guessed a book taking place at a renaissance faire would be my thing, but this book has sucked me in so much I want to take a sick day and just read! I have to find out what happens with the black leather clad pirate...

rachelm I love this series ❤️ cannot wait for the third! 8mo
Marni @rachelm I bought the second at my first trip to my favorite indie bookstore in a year, and decided I should read this one first. I‘m so glad I did and that I already have the second!! 8mo

3rd in the Hot and Hammered series. Switched from audiobook to ebook when the Texas accent the narrator was attempting just didn‘t work for me. Picturing my favorite Texas characters/people worked better for me. This book was a fun enemies to lovers story that was 🔥🔥🔥

I had been struggling with this audiobook. The narrator‘s version of a male Texas accent just wasn‘t working for me. I switched to the Kindle version and it helped, but it still wasn‘t right. Than I started picturing the character as Tim Riggins (Friday Night Lights) and now it‘s perfection.

This was a powerful book that looks at the impacts of racism and the justice system through the lens of one marriage. It was eye opening and heartbreaking.

I absolutely loved this book. Devoured it. Their banter made the whole book for me. And I cried because I related to Gus and his struggles. Would absolutely recommend to anyone who wants to read a great romance and get lost in writing and laughter.

I really liked the premise and the fact the two characters were single parents in their late 30s, but the barrier to their relationship I didn‘t like, and I didn‘t like the resolution. It seems very unrealistic. I really wanted to love this book but it just fell flat. #read2021

This book could not hold my interest. I was so hoping it would be a great retelling like Eligible, in the same series, but those two books should never been compared because this can‘t live up to any of it.
