Beautiful Bastart by Christina Lauren - 5/5 stars

OMG! I was still laughing and having giggle fits from this book hours and hours after I finished it. It was phenomenal.

“You realize early in life that beauty is only skin-deep and, ugly goes straight to the bone” 

This was steamy and hilarious. The main characters, Chloe and Bennett start of hating each other. Truly madly deeply hating each other! Their interactions are nothing short of comical. Even the steamy scenes are to some extend just hilarious.

Mr Bennet Ryan is an ass. The boss from nightmares. Incredibly intelligent and accomplished in his business but arrogant and full of himself. He treat his employees like garbage. And that is why she hates him. She had very good reasons too.

Now, he hates her for a  different reason. Chloe can dish out as good as she gets. And she does. She infuriates him. But what also infuriates him is that he is attracted to her. That somehow makes things worse, makes him hate her even more. He thinks he can get her out of his system if they sleep together just once. He is wrong of-course. That doesn't help at all. Once the deed is done he thinks of her even more and hates her even more for it.

To be honest, it sounds like a silly plot to me now that I am reading my own review. But I promise you it is worth it (if you like steamy books). Although it has a lot of tension, it is also funny and rather light hearted. Perfect fast paced light hearted late night read!

Quickies, April 2021

I read a good amount of older releases this past two months. I will not write long individual reviews for every single one of them but here are is a little bit about each one of them:  - Visions of Heat by Nalini Singh It's unlikely I will ever dislike something Nalini writes. She is a master of her craft. This is the second book in the Psy-Changeling series and it is just as good as the first. Shy and isolated Faith is plagued by visions of blood and murder. She has questions and needs help but can't ask those around her. She turns to the changelings and the only Psy she knows that has defied her race (first book in the series). Vaughn is more cat than human but has to control his instincts not to scare Faith away. This was a fabulous paranormal romance read but you really must read the first book first! 4 stars from me :)  - Desperate Measures by Katee Robert Desperate Measures is the story of Jafar and Jasmine. But if you read Katee before you know it is not that simple at

A Touch of Darkness (Hades & Persephone #1) by Scarlett St. Clair

I knew very little going into this book except that it had my current favorite bad boy in it: Hades! Seriously though, I have a "hades tbr" at the moment, it's a thing. And if you know any good Hades based romances do tell me. Always and forever looking for more. Hades, the God of the Dead was phenomenal. I have ZERO complaints about his character. There was more to the underworld than known by other gods and humans, and the same is true about the man that runs the place. He is to the point and although not always up front and straight forward he is always honest and true. He has built a gambling empire but his bets are not always monetary and they are known for being impossible.  Persephone was very much still learning who she really was. Up until meeting Hades and for some time after she has no power of her own. Plants die at her touch and that is that. She is also known as the goddess of spring, but that is not because of who she is but rather because of who her mother

Yes & I Love You by Roni Loren [ALC review]

It is always nice when a book surprises you. Yes & I Love You was more than the title suggests. Yes, it is certainly a romance novel, but it also deals with things most of us don't think about when talking inclusion in books. The main female character, Hollyn, has tourette syndrome and suffers panic attacks. The disease affected the character's daily life but didn't define who she was. The author, Roni Loren,  holds a master’s degree in social work and spent years as a mental health counselor, and it is clear her experiences helped her here. She represented the illness well and did a great job at demonstrating how anxiety and other daily things we take for granted made things harder for Hollyn.   Hollyn is very successful in her field. She runs a popular blog and her word is the law. If she recommends your business or entertainment it is certain it will be successful. But because of her tourettes she hides behind the screen and no one knows what the popular reviewer &qu
