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!

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

The Last Tiara by M.J. Rose

The Last Tiara  by M.J. Rose is inspired by a real missing Russian Crown Jewel. She explains in an article to The Adventurine  how she stumbled upon an NPR article about the disappearance of missing Russian Crown Jewels that to date, have not been found. Captivated by it and how such amazing items could simply disappear she decides her new novel will tell the story of the lost tiara.  It is apparent throughout the book that M.J. Rose researched well the Romanov Jewels, the Russian Evolution, and especially the impact it had on the Russian people. Although she never goes into details, the poverty and difficulties the people experienced at the time are carefully and respectfully mentioned.  The book is told from two different perspectives, that of mother and daughter. The alternating chapters reveal Sofiya's life in Russia from 1915 through 1922, and Isobelle's in 1948 Manhattan, US. First we have Isabelle, an young architect in post World War II Manhattan .
