REVIEW: An Offer from a Gentleman

Welp, season 2 of Bridgerton on Netflix has me hooked. I haven’t read any of the series, a first for me going straight to the show rather than the written version, but I wasn’t sure I would enjoy it. Season 2 was so sharp and witty, I wanted more so I decided to use someContinue reading “REVIEW: An Offer from a Gentleman”

REVIEW: The Hookup Plan

This was my first Farrah Rochon book, I know, crazy right? I was really drawn into this romcom because the characters were educated and well put together. There was no disorganized woman hoping for love, a trope that I hate, London is successful and cocky and kind. She was the kind of woman you want toContinue reading “REVIEW: The Hookup Plan”

REVIEW: A Lady’s Guide to Fortune Hunting

I’ll admit it Bridgerton has gotten me back into Regency era historical romance. I’ve really enjoyed recent stories from Evie Dunmore and Martha Waters who put a new spin on an Austen-esque opinionated women who aren’t living their life for just marriage. Our heroine in A Lady’s Guide to Fortune Hunting, Kitty, is not that.Continue reading “REVIEW: A Lady’s Guide to Fortune Hunting”

I’m not a huge regency romance reader but I do enjoy when the stories have good banter and women who have depth.

πŸ’ƒπŸ» REVIEW: Ready to Rumba πŸ•ΊπŸ»

Boy does this little novella pack a lot of emotional punch! It’s fun and sweet and intense all at the same time. Nix and Marcus are competitive dancers at rival dance studios.
