More mini reviews from books I’ve enjoyed to varying degrees over the last few weeks.
Something Wilder by Christina Lauren
Release Date: May 17, 2022
The Decoy Girlfriend by Lillie Vale
Release Date: September 6, 2022
I tried to love this. I really did. Because I wanted to love this so bad – a case of mistaken celebrity doppelgänger identity with fake-dating too, what’s not to love. Except for the fact that Freya and Taft have absolutely zero chemistry. The two leads fall into a flirtation and desire pretty quickly, with no build-up and litter interaction. And the few scenes we do get of the two together are innocuous and have little to no buildup. I also found Freya to be a pretty inconsistent character, I don’t know if it’s her impersonating Mandi, or what, but she was a bit all over the play for me.
I received a copy of the book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review
The Last Wolf by Maria Vale
Release Date: February 6, 2018
I just wasn’t feeling this at all. The worldbuilding and writing were really hard for me to get unto. And a quarter of the way into the book were still only getting exposition, no character development, and I’m not still no really sure what’s actually happening. I don’t understand the rules and honestly don’t care too.
The Temporary Roomie by Sarah Adams
Rating: ★★☆☆☆ (2.5 Stars)
Release Date: April 4, 2021
And okay story overall, but I prefer other Sarah Adams books.
