Love & Gelato by Jenna Evans Welch- 5+/5 stars

--Be aware you will be hungry while reading this for all things Italian-- hehe

This book was such an awesome easy cute summer read.
I read it while on holidays sitting by a pool and it was just perfection!

I loved the Italian feel, the history, the experience that the author gave the reader by submitting the characters to it. I have been to Italy and Florence and I felt back there while reading. It was really well written and well portrayed.

The character growth and development was amazing as well. All characters have so much story and background to them. In the end of the book you feel a connection to all main characters and I for one always find that an incredible talent on an authors part.

I also thought the author dealt with grief really well. And more than that, the author managed to make the subject not sound or feel heavy on the reader. There is something to be said of an author that can perfectly capture emotions such as grief and loss and still somehow manage to make the story feel and sound light hearted. That was some impressive work.

Now, don't go into this book expecting some grown up and sophisticated book/writing style. This is an easy summer read and nothing more. It does not advertise itself as more either. If you don't usually enjoy easy going and simple written romances chances are you will not love this either.

And lets not forget to mention this shocker: This was a debut novel! Say what?!?!?!?!?! This author has some grand future ahead making my summers shine brighter 😀

A Romance Catch Up!

 It has been a crazy month and I fell behind badly on my reviews! But here are some highlights for you. Barbarian Lover (Ice Planet Barbarians #3) Ruby Dixon  2.75/5 Although I liked this one it is my least favorite in the series so far. The book was going well until a little over the halfway point when it just doesn't read right. She accepts leaving someone behind too easily and although up to this point the book does a good job at dealing with infertility it all of sudden throws it all out of the window. So good, I will carry on with the series, but not great. A Precious Jewel (Stapleton-Downes #2) Mary Balogh  3/5 This was different, unique. And I like that about it. I have not read any other book quite like it. She is a prostitute;  he starts of as just any other client. The story was sweet and interesting . The MC comes across  rather clueless at times,  but it is somewhat endearing. The romance is believable  and they make a very charming couple! The Gunslinger's Guide to

The Cursed King (Inferno Rising #4) by Abigail Owen

This series has been an absolutely delight and I am so glad I've read it. The Rogue King , the first book in the series is still very much my favorite. I discovered Abigail Owen through that book and have read a few of her other books since, this series -obviously-, and others. I highly recommend you all give this wonderful author a try. Blurb: He will burn. She will rise. Airk Azdajah, the rightful King of the White Clan, spent half a millennium being tortured by the false High King Pytheios. The only reason he’s alive is a curse— the man to kill Airk will be consumed in his own fire. Which is why Pytheios kept Airk alive, barely, unable to shift in his prison cage, driving the creature half of him into madness. Airk escaped, but he’ll never be truly free. What good is a king who can never let his feral dragon loose, never fly, and never lead his people? He’s better off dead. Angelika Amon is the last unmated phoenix. The problem? She has no powers. Zip. Zilch. Angelika hates bein

Allison's Adventures in Underland by C.M. Stunich

As much as I really enjoyed this book, I have to be honest and say that unless you, like me, are a big fun of the classic, you might not love it. It relies heavily on your knowledge of the classic. Although everything is well explained you will be missing something without it.  I'm also not sure calling this one a romance is correct. Even a dark reverse harem as it is advertised... but that I think will most definitely become the case in the second book. We are just not there yet and when I went into this one, I didn't know it was series with cliffhangers.  Allison's Adventures in Underland  is a fantastic adaptation of the classic. It is Dark, it is sexy, it has charm.  Allison watches a man with bunny ears murder her crash and runs after him. She falls down the rabbit hole in the process coming face to face with the twins. Expect in this version the twins are two very sexy man with signs hanging around their necks that say, "eat me", "drink me". I am s
