Dating You / Hating You by Christina Lauren [audio-book]

I absolutely LoVe Christina Lauren's work. There are a few of their books that I have not been able to read when they were published and I am finally getting to them. I have Dating You / Hating You in paperback but I actually had this on audio through my local library and listened to it while I worked on my paintings. It was soooooo good. I finished my paintings and sat on my couch listening to the rest later in the night. It was great!

Blurb:
Despite the odds against them from an embarrassing meet-awkward at a mutual friend’s Halloween party, Carter and Evie immediately hit it off. Even the realization that they’re both high-powered agents at competing firms in Hollywood isn’t enough to squash the fire.

But when their two agencies merge—causing the pair to vie for the same position—all bets are off. What could have been a beautiful, blossoming romance turns into an all-out war of sabotage. Carter and Evie are both thirty something professionals—so why can’t they act like it?

Can Carter stop trying to please everyone and see how their mutual boss is really playing the game? Can Evie put aside her competitive nature long enough to figure out what she really wants in life? Can their actor clients just be something close to human? Whether these two Hollywood love/hate birds get the storybook Hollywood ending or just a dramedy of epic proportions, you will get to enjoy Christina Lauren’s heartfelt, raucous, and hilarious romance style at its finest.
 

The review: 5 Stars

Yet another adorable, charming, and super sexy romance by the wonderful Christina Lauren! Everything I could have hoped for and more.
Carter and Evie were absolutely hilarious. The pranks they did to each other had me laughing out loud in my studio room and scaring the crap out of my dog. Fun times :)
I loved the fact Evie was a little older than most heroines. Not all of us find love on our 20s. She had a strong character, strong work ethic, and was all around very relatable.
Carter was adorable. Nerdy, kind, good at what he does.
And of-course the chemistry was on point. Although I love a good enemies to lovers story I was glad this didn't turn into that. They were not portrayed as that kind of people so the innocent pranks they did on each other worked perfectly and was more than enough. The intimate scenes as per usual with these amazing authors were off the charts hot and perfect in every way.
All in all another amazing book by the amazing Christina Lauren duo!

The only thing I wasn't in love with was the female narrator. I wanted a softer voice for Evie.

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
