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 :)

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 . While renovating her

How to Catch a Duke (Rogues to Riches #6) by Grace Burrowes [ALC review]

How to Catch a Duke, Grace Burrowes I've been waiting for this book for sometime. Lord Stephen Wentworth's past was mentioned many times in previous books and I was hoping Grace Burrowes would give him a happy ending. After everything he went through in life he most certainly deserved it.  As book opening goes, the one to How to Catch a Duke  had me dying of curiosity instantly: "I have come to ask you to kill me, my lord." Miss Abigail Abbott is no damsel in distress, but she also knows when she can't handle an enemy on her own. She believes the only solution to her problems is to disappear and she trusts Lord Stephen will help her. Lord Stephen is a juxtaposition... charming and brutish, sad and happy, caring and ruthless, the most intelligent and most clueless... Although you don't have to have read any of the previous books in this series to enjoy this one, I would advise you to do so. I think Stephen's personality traits and past will be more touching
