Hating to Love You by Erin Rylie [arc review]

Loving the cover for Hating to Love You
I am proud to say I am friends with this wonderful new writer. Her book was great. If you are a romance lover, give this a go!

Blurb:

Rafe Pierce just wants to keep his head down and earn his next promotion. Becoming Houston’s “Hot Cop” is his worst nightmare, and things only get worse when the sexiest reporter he’s ever met starts digging through his past. Sophie Klein has the power to expose a childhood he’d rather keep hidden, so why can’t he stay away from her?



He’s everything Sophie Klein hates: brash, arrogant, and hot as hell. When a chance encounter with a bachelorette party makes Rafe a social-media sensation, Sophie is the lucky reporter chosen to tell his story. She can’t deny the chemistry between them, but is determined to keep her distance. Unfortunately for her, a drunken hookup in a bar supply closet ensures she will be spending at least the next nine months with him…



4.5 Stars! 

Let's talk first about Rafe... swoooooooon! 
I am very glad I call Erin 'my girlfriend', it would be rather odd how badly I swoon over Rafe otherwise. Seriously... Like... I want to get in his pants. Bad. 
The man was pure freaking perfection. Why oh Why man like that don't exist in real life? So unfair.
He did everything right for Sophie. He fought for her and stayed by her side the whole time.

Sophie was a good character too. She had a fun personality, plenty of sass and was super sweet. I rather liked her. I wasn't always on her side, but I understood where she came from. When you've been burnt from past relationships so many times it is hard to trust again. 

The chemistry between the main characters was spot on. Hot and steamy but also heart warming and beautiful. Above all else, they became friends. 

The half start off is because there were times it got a little confusing for a minute or two when the story's perspective changed from Rafe to Sophie and vice versa. Not enough to damage the story in any way though. 
All in all a FABULOUS book.
I don't mince my words, so I confess I was worried I wouldn't like it. How do you tell a friend you didn't like what she wrote right? I am very happy to say I LOVED it and can't wait for the next book.

Oh... yah... let's not forget to talk about that ending. You are mean Erin. That was not fair.

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
