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 :)

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
