More mini reviews from books I’ve enjoyed to varying degrees over the last few weeks.
Ignite by Melanie Harlow
Rating: ★★★☆☆ (3.5 Stars)
Release Date: November 22, 2021
I Like You Like That by Kayla Grosse
Release Date: August 9, 2022
Birdie and Liam were childhood friends, driven apart by a (seemingly) unrequited crush in high school, but are brought back together when pop star Birdie needs a bodyguard to help with a persistent stalker. This had a bunch of things I love – pop star romance, childhood crush to estranged to lovers, bodyguard romance, but the actual romance that developed in the present day between Birdie and Liam felt kinda rushed and we didn’t really get enough flashbacks to see their relationship to make an impact in the present.
Lizzie Blake’s Best Mistake by Mazey Eddings
Release Date: September 6, 2022
I just couldn’t get into this. I was having a really tough time in the beginning, and it was getting better the more I read, but I was just having such a hard time actually wanting to pick this up. And I don’t know if it was a combination of me kinda-sorta slumping, or just struggling to enjoy this book in particular. Lizzie and Rake have immediate lust for each other, but I never felt like their relationship went beyond that – which is not a great foundation especially with a surprise pregnancy in the mix. There are plenty of quirky one liners and over dramatic characters if that’s what your looking for in a quick, romance I think this will work for you.
I received a copy of the book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review
