Let's Get Textual (Text #1) by Teagan Hunter

Just what the doctor recommended :)
A light hearted, funny, charming and very well written romantic comedy!
A huge thank you goes to my beautiful friend Megan@watchmereadingnerdy for the Text series books. Starting the second book straight away.
The blurb:
A wrong number is supposed to be just that—a wrong number.

Delete. Done.

Do not continue to text. Do not flirt.

A wrong number shouldn’t be the first person on your mind in the morning, or the last at night…and you’re definitely not supposed to talk them into buying a baby goat.

Because that would be weird.

When Zach Hastings and I get into a wrong-number mix-up, we don’t follow the rules. We keep texting and flirting, because he’s wicked funny and perfectly nerdy and a wonderful distraction.

I’m not looking for love, and Zach definitely had the wrong number.

But maybe…

Maybe he’s the right guy.


4.5 Stars

I absolutely loved the way the book was written. The text message conversations were a really nice touch and I almost preferred them to the actual narrative. They were on POINT! Do you have a sarcastic friend? chances are you've texted that friend like that once or twice before. Loved it. 

The humor wasn't the kind that makes your belly ache from laughter. It was silly and 'giggle inducing' :) I found myself shaking my head  and giggling to myself often while reading it. It was sweet... Really everything about the book can be described as sweet. Even Delia's breakup at the very beginning was sweet. Who on earth writes sweet break-ups? It was perfect. 

Zach is the coolest nerd to have ever graced the pages of a book. I don't think I could date a guy like that but man I want him to be real because I NEED a friend like him! hehe
He has a heart of gold, is super duper clever and has wit and charm to go with it. 
Delia's personality matched him perfectly. She is straight forward, honest and is super sharp and on point. 
The banter between them and how comfortable they are with each other is what made it all perfect.

Marshmallow the goat was a weird addition and yet it worked. I don't really know how to explain it, it just worked while at the same time never stopping being weird. 

The only reason I can't give a 5 star rating is because Delia comes across as this really mature young lady the whole way through and the drama at the end makes her look childish. 

If you love a good romantic comedy you will love this one!

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 .
