Kindle Unlimited Recent Reads Mini Reviews

I’ve really been using KU as a way to sneak in more books over the past few months and break up a lot of my non-romance reads – and I’ve been loving the service. So here are some KU books I’ve read over the past few weeks!

Focused by Karla Sorensen

Focused (Ward Sisters, #1)

Rating: ★★★★☆
Release Date: January 7, 2020

Molly and Noah have really great chemistry. While I cared less about their shared backstory, their present day interactions proved the longing and feelings. While there wasn’t really miscommunication, there was a lack of communicaton that I can forgive because they were coming to grips with their own feelings. The third act conflict was a pleasant surprise as well, impactful but not as cliche. The strong family support system around Molly was fantastic and made me want to continue with the series.

Faked by Karla Sorensen

Faked (Ward Sisters, #2)

Rating: ★★★☆☆ (3.5 Stars)
Release Date: June 16, 2020

I’m always going to have a soft spot for twins in stories and I really enjoyed this installment in the Ward Sisters. While I don’t think we get as much family involvement as in Focused, I still loved all the sibling relationships. Claire and Bauer have great chemistry – even if it gets a little rushed at the end. But I related to Claire’s more reserved nature and thought her insight into child development and socialization added something interesting to the story, especially given the sister’s complicated relationship with their own mother.

Floored by Karla Sorensen

Floored (Ward Sisters, #3)

Rating: ★★☆☆☆ (2.5 Stars)
Release Date: December 9, 2020

This has definitely been the weakest of the series for me so far. It felt the most rushed and I felt the most disconnected from the characters and the relationship. While I liked Jude, Lia never really grew on me and despite the slightly longer page count, I feel like there was less development here.

 Forbidden by Karla Sorensen

Forbidden (Ward Sisters #4)

Rating: ★★☆☆☆
Release Date: May 20, 2021

I’m really torn with this one, because I think Aiden is my favorite love interest in the series, Isobel is my least favorite sister. She is so immature (despite being the second oldest) I did not see them as a good match at all. This story was also really lopsided in the POS. We rarely got any Aiden chapters and so little from his family which I loved seeing the love interest family and perspective in earlier books.
