Guest Blogger: Stephanie from Bookworm Between the Sheets with The Rivalry by Nikki Sloane

Our Guest Blogger this week is Stephanie from Bookworm Between the Sheets! 
I am really excited to have her here because it is not often I find New Adult lovers on bookstagram that are as active as she is!
Her Favorite read in 2017 was The Rivalry by Nikki Sloane and she has kindly agreed to share her review of it here in Glimpses of my Books.
Bellow is the review, a little Q&A with her, and the many ways in which you can go follow her afterwards!

Hi Stephanie!
Tell us a little bit about you before we go into bookish questions Where are you from? Southern California
Have you always lived there? 
No, born and raised in Oklahoma before moving out to Sunny So Cal and never left!
Provided you dont think it is rude, how old are you? 
36
What are your hobbies besides reading? 
Exercising when I can and playing with my three young children. I am a stay at home mom and right now they take up a lot of that time. But I do find time to pamper myself whenever I can!

When/What got you into reading? 
I was always an avid reader growing up, but was so tired of reading after college so I rarely read a book. But during my third pregnancy I had horrible insomnia so instead of getting annoyed of not being able to sleep I read romance novels. I joked that romance novels were my pregnancy craving! Hopefully it doesn’t mess up my son haha!

We know what your favorite read in 2017 was now, but what were your top 3 2017 book releases? 
A Little Like Destiny by Lisa Suzanne, Grip by Kennedy Ryan, and Fraternize by Rachel Van Dyken

Do you have a favorite genre? 
Romance NA, YA, Adult I read it all!

Is there a book you really did not enjoy reading this past year? Which one? Why? 
Take Me Back by Meghan March. This book has rave reviews by some of my favorite bloggers, but it went from a second chance romance to a suspense novel. I was thinking it was something else.

Do you have an all time favorite book or book series? 
A Little Like Destiny by Lisa Suzanne I was captivated by her words and I messaged her directly after finishing Book 1 and asking how I can help get her book series out because I just loved it so much and fell in love with all the characters!

"I don't want 'some girl,' I want you."


I am a MAJOR Football Romance fan and this book is going to the TOP of my Fave Football Romances List! I haven't read a book by Nikki Sloane in a while and I am pulling my hair as to why NOT! I LOVE her Blindfold Club Series.

I could not put down The Rivalry with the all the football metaphors and sexual innuendoes this book is hard not to love! The banter between the main characters is laugh out loud funny and hot and steamy all at the same time! I haven't encountered many football romances that solely focuses on the hero & heroine throughout the entire story which is what I thoroughly enjoyed about this story.

If you love a college sports rivalry this romance is for you! You will be thinking back to your college years and fall in love with Jay & Kayla!

How about a favorite author? 
This is another tough question! Can I give you a couple???? Colleen Hoover, Vi Keeland, Helena, Hunting and Lisa Suzanne

Last but not least, where else in this big wide web world can we find you?
I am active daily on Instagram and my Blog

Thank you so  much for being here with us today Stephanie!

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

Radiant Sin (Dark olympus) by Katee Robert [arc review]

This is sadly, not going to be a very popular review. I adore Katee Robert. But this one just wasn't for me. It wasn't a terrible book or anything like that, it just left me wanting more and very puzzled. Every one of the books in this series follows a certain trope and/or subplot genre. Neon Gods is very much a Greek Mythology retelling;  Electric Idol  has the plus size influencer and the sweet bad boy, it is a very modern contemporary romance;  Wicked Beauty , and my favorite so far has that hunger games/dystopian vibe. Radiant Sin  is a murder mystery. The 'one house'/'one train' style that has always been so popular. Here lies problem number one for me, because I don't like murder mysteries at all. Even on my teen years when I read a lot of mystery it was never those. Problem two- there were way too many characters in that house, and they all got their time on the page making it one very confusing mess. It was very hard to follow at times. I think this

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
