Text Me Baby One More Time (Text #4) by Teagan Hunter

I have finally caught up with the Text series! It has been a wonderful ride and at least one of the books in the series is likely to make into my end of the year list of favorites.


Blurb:
A second-chance romcom.

I love you, he said.
Forever, he said.
Turns out, he lied.

When he leaves me high and dry after a cross-country move, I push him out of my life as much as I can, which is hard to do when the guy who broke your heart also happens to be the most famous dude in town.

After a disastrous year, he’s aiming to rehab his reputation, and I just so happen to be aiming for a promotion at the paper.

So, we strike a deal, and it’s a win-win all around.

Besides, what’s the harm in a few dates to charity galas anyway?

He’s arrogant, a total jerk. There’s no way I’ll fall for him…again.

I used to love him. Now I hate him…I think.
 


3 Stars

After much deliberating I decided that Text me Baby One More Time will get a 3 star rating. What that means is that although I loved the book it wasn't perfect. 

Let's start by talking about Shep... We know he can be an ass from what he did to his brother in a previous book. That being said, don't go into this book expecting a horrible character. Teagan Hunter (at least as far as this series is concerned) only writes nice boys, and Shep is no different. There is a difference between being a horrible person and being an insecure and afraid person that does horrible things. Shep falls on the second category. He actually turned out to be a really nice guy that made really bad decisions. Some of his decisions are the reason I didn't love the book though, it was a little too childish and immature for me. I avoid high school romance novels for that reason and their story starts before college. Although Shep's decision is understandable when you consider how old he was  meant to be when he made it (we all made some dumb things at that age) it still annoyed me. I just can't handle that kind of romance. 

I don't really have much to say about Denver and I guess that says a lot already. She is kind of forgetful. I mean... she eats a lot and like pugs? What else is there? or at least that is how I felt. 
I should probably add I didn't care about her in the previous book too though. I was curious as to what made Shep the way he is but I really didn't care about her and that sentiment carried through. MOST readers actually like her and hate him. I just like bad boys too much I guess 🤣
The only outstanding quality about her to me was that she did not make excuses for Shep's idiocity. She made him face his mistakes and I admire that a lot.

The texting was again my favorite part. I think I said this on a previous review but I would fall in love with Teagan myself the way she texts :) She does an absolute brilliant job with those. The texting was no doubt my favorite thing in all 4 books in the series. 

Although this was my least favorite in the series that doesn't mean I didn't like it. A 3 star rating is still a good rating and I recommend you all to go and read this book and the series as a whole :)

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

The Book Hater's Book Club by Gretchen Anthony

The Book Hater's Book Club  at first appears to be about a struggling bookstore and its imminent sale. Elliot, the co-owner of Over the Rainbow Bookstore, started  The Book Hater's Book Club , a newsletter of reading recommendations for the self-proclaimed non-readers of the world, because he believed there was a book out there for everyone. Something I wholeheartedly agree with! For years he and Irma have kept the store going and always had a recommendation in hand. When you finish this book, you will have yet another list of books to read.  However, this book is about more than just books and a struggling bookstore. It is also about grief, the price of secrets, and a little more grief.  You see, Elliot is gone, and his grief-ridden business partner has agreed to sell the store to developers. Problem is, she didn't tell that to anyone until the deal was almost done. Which is making her daughters ask questions. Why is she selling? Is it grief alone? Is there something else

Promises and Pomegranates (Monsters & Muses #1) by Sav R. Miller

I was very excited about this read. The reviews are good, the people recommending it were people whose recommendations I have liked in the past. And in the end, at did like this one. But I will confess from the start that Promises and Pomegranates  did not blow me away. Blurb: Elena To most, Kal Anderson is a villain. Harbinger of death, keeper of souls, frequenter of nightmares. Doctor Death. Hades incarnate. They say he stole me. Usurped my fiancé and filled the cracks in my heart with empty promises. Imprinted his crimson fingerprints on my psyche and tried to set me free. They’re not wrong, per se. Except it was my choice to stay. Kal To most, Elena Ricci is an innocent. Goddess of springtime, lover of poetry, angel of my nightmares. Little one. Persephone personified. They say I ruined her. Shattered her virtue and devoured her soul like a succulent pomegranate. Embedded my evil as deep as I could possibly get and tried to set her free. They’re not wrong, per se. Except it was she
