Recent Reads Mini Reviews

More mini reviews from books I’ve enjoyed to varying degrees over the last few weeks.

Baking Me Crazy by Karla Sorensen

Baking Me Crazy (Love at First Sight, #1)

Rating: ★★★★★
Release Date: October 8, 2019

This book was pure serotonin. Levi and Joss are best friends – and have been for years- but Levi has been head over heels in love with her for years. The longing and pining was so well done here. First and foremost, you can feel their friendship at the core of all their interactions. The number of times I smiled, laughed, squealed throughout this entire story is ridiculous. It kept me entertained from the very first page. I loved the genuine relationship between Levi and Joss and I will definitely pick up the rest of the series.

Rock Paper Scissors by Alice Feeney

Rock Paper Scissors

Rating: ★★★☆☆
Release Date: October 7, 2021

This was a quick and fun read but I didn’t find it very thrilling. Even though there was some twists sprinkled throughout the story to keep you engaged, I either saw them coming or they felt like they have very little impact. I also didn’t really care about the characters – but not in a their bad people and you’re not supposed to like them way – more so in a they’re boring and uninteresting way. But the vibes for this story were perfect and we fall starts to really cool down – you just want to wrap up with something cozy and read this in one go.

Truth or Beard by Penny Reid

Truth or Beard (Winston Brothers, #1)

Rating: ★★☆☆☆
Release Date: July 21, 2015

DNF @28%
I fell head over heels in love with another book (from a different author) that is set in the Green Valley universe so I was really excited to read from the original series and find another favorite. Unfortunately, Jessica and Duane have absolutely no chemistry and the parts that I would have accepted as over-the-top and kooky if I liked this (the entire biker gang subplot) they came across as nonsensical. I love an over-dramatic, escapism romance as much as the next person, but rooting one of those stories in a small town setting just didn’t mesh well in this instance for me.

The Wedding Ringer by Kerry Rea

The Wedding Ringer

Rating: ★★★☆☆ (3.5 Stars)
Release Date: November 9, 2021

A cute and fast-paced romance with a strong focus on friendships at its core. Willa also provides great comedic moments as the lead and her journey or self discovery and healing will be relatable to many people.
<i>I received a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review</i>
