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 :)

A Romance Catch Up!

 It has been a crazy month and I fell behind badly on my reviews! But here are some highlights for you. Barbarian Lover (Ice Planet Barbarians #3) Ruby Dixon  2.75/5 Although I liked this one it is my least favorite in the series so far. The book was going well until a little over the halfway point when it just doesn't read right. She accepts leaving someone behind too easily and although up to this point the book does a good job at dealing with infertility it all of sudden throws it all out of the window. So good, I will carry on with the series, but not great. A Precious Jewel (Stapleton-Downes #2) Mary Balogh  3/5 This was different, unique. And I like that about it. I have not read any other book quite like it. She is a prostitute;  he starts of as just any other client. The story was sweet and interesting . The MC comes across  rather clueless at times,  but it is somewhat endearing. The romance is believable  and they make a very charming couple! The Gunslinger's Guide to

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

Allison's Adventures in Underland by C.M. Stunich

As much as I really enjoyed this book, I have to be honest and say that unless you, like me, are a big fun of the classic, you might not love it. It relies heavily on your knowledge of the classic. Although everything is well explained you will be missing something without it.  I'm also not sure calling this one a romance is correct. Even a dark reverse harem as it is advertised... but that I think will most definitely become the case in the second book. We are just not there yet and when I went into this one, I didn't know it was series with cliffhangers.  Allison's Adventures in Underland  is a fantastic adaptation of the classic. It is Dark, it is sexy, it has charm.  Allison watches a man with bunny ears murder her crash and runs after him. She falls down the rabbit hole in the process coming face to face with the twins. Expect in this version the twins are two very sexy man with signs hanging around their necks that say, "eat me", "drink me". I am s
