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

Be With Me by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Be with Me (Wait for You, #2)

Rating: ★★★☆☆
Release Date: February 4, 2014

This took a few unexpected turns that I wasn’t the biggest fan of, but I really did enjoy the chemistry between Jace and Theresa – I believe they have a history and are working toward something in the future together, even though both are facing many challenges.

Punk 57 by Penelope Douglas

Punk 57

Rating: ★★★★☆ (4.5 Stars)
Release Date: October 21, 2016

This lived up to the hype for me. It’s addicting and easy to devour. I love Ryen and Misha have a rich history and I really loved their relationship and the many genuine emotions the the difficult journeys they both go on. And going in, I knew this was a bully romance, but I was honestly expecting much worse – it wasn’t tame by any means, but it tension definitely built

Maid of Dishonor by Gracie Ruth Mitchell

Maid of Dishonor (Love Mishaps #1)

Rating: ★★★☆☆
Release Date: September 23, 2021

A quick and cute romcom. I was expecting more wedding hijinks, but this was really in the pre-planning stages – but still fun. Sam and Carter have a solid friendship (with lots of mutual pining) that was great to read about. The beginning was a bit slow and Maya really frustrated me but the story grew on me the more I read

Say You’ll Remember Me by Katie McGarry

Say You'll Remember Me

Rating: ★★★☆☆ (3.75 Stars)
Release Date: January 30, 2018

A complex emotional story about expectations and your future set against the backdrop of an unexpected romance. SAY YOU’LL REMEMBER ME is a powerful story of truth, hope, and honesty that tugs at your heart strings as it examines the advantages and lack of that comes with how society views you.
