Delivery Girl by Lily Kate - 4 Stars 

This one I read for my zoom book club. I knew absolutely nothing about it going into it and I am glad to report it was a cute and fun read. 
Andi is working at her dads pizza shop while finishing uni and pursuing a career in stand up comedy. She is funny, sweet and genuine. Easy to like and easy to love. 
Rian is a hockey player on the verge of stardom. Get signed by the right person at the right time and his career is made.
They meet when he orders pizza at his brothers house. It is hilarious from the first moment to the last.

A Quick Bite 

I have never read a paranormal romance book quite like it. It has been a few days since I finished it and I still don't know exactly how to feel about it. As with every first book in a new series it had a lot going on, and I am usually ok with that. But here we had an absolutely crazy amount of characters being introduced to us in the most weird ways and times. I guess the author was trying to make it sound funny...Anyway, overall I liked the book, I just wish the characters were a little less juvenile (specially since they are meant to be over 200 years old), and that the most interesting idea in the book: a vampire that suffers from hemophilia, was explored a tad more.

Scoring off the Field (WAGS, #2)Scoring off the Field by Naima Simone - 4 Stars

Naima Simone never ceases to amaze me. She writes amazing romance, always gets me teary, and they are always hot.
Tenny has decided to move on. Having unrequited feelings for her best friend for as long as she can remember and working for him every day is just not working out. Dom is oblivious to what is right in front of him. Sometimes it takes losing something for someone to realize how important that something or someone is. This was a nice easy read with plenty of heartfelt moments to pull at your heartstrings.

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
