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.

The Book Hater's Book Club by Gretchen Anthony

The Book Hater's Book Club  at first appears to be about a struggling bookstore and its imminent sale. Elliot, the co-owner of Over the Rainbow Bookstore, started  The Book Hater's Book Club , a newsletter of reading recommendations for the self-proclaimed non-readers of the world, because he believed there was a book out there for everyone. Something I wholeheartedly agree with! For years he and Irma have kept the store going and always had a recommendation in hand. When you finish this book, you will have yet another list of books to read.  However, this book is about more than just books and a struggling bookstore. It is also about grief, the price of secrets, and a little more grief.  You see, Elliot is gone, and his grief-ridden business partner has agreed to sell the store to developers. Problem is, she didn't tell that to anyone until the deal was almost done. Which is making her daughters ask questions. Why is she selling? Is it grief alone? Is there something else

Promises and Pomegranates (Monsters & Muses #1) by Sav R. Miller

I was very excited about this read. The reviews are good, the people recommending it were people whose recommendations I have liked in the past. And in the end, at did like this one. But I will confess from the start that Promises and Pomegranates  did not blow me away. Blurb: Elena To most, Kal Anderson is a villain. Harbinger of death, keeper of souls, frequenter of nightmares. Doctor Death. Hades incarnate. They say he stole me. Usurped my fiancĂ© and filled the cracks in my heart with empty promises. Imprinted his crimson fingerprints on my psyche and tried to set me free. They’re not wrong, per se. Except it was my choice to stay. Kal To most, Elena Ricci is an innocent. Goddess of springtime, lover of poetry, angel of my nightmares. Little one. Persephone personified. They say I ruined her. Shattered her virtue and devoured her soul like a succulent pomegranate. Embedded my evil as deep as I could possibly get and tried to set her free. They’re not wrong, per se. Except it was she

Cruel Prince (Royal Hearts Academy #1) by Ashley Jade

Continuing with my newest obsession, bully romance, we now have Jace. Insufferable, hateful, vengeful Jace. Blurb: I never thought I'd step foot in Royal Manor again. But four years later, here I am... back to finish my senior year at Royal Hearts Academy. And forced to face Jace Covington. My first friend. First crush. First kiss. The one I left behind. Only—he isn't the same boy I gave my heart to. This new Jace is as cruel as he is gorgeous. And he's determined to make my life a living hell. Along with the rest of his glorified family and crew of tyrants. They expect me to worship the ground they walk on like everyone else, but I'd rather eat dirt. If Jace Covington wants me gone...he'll have to try harder. Because I've never been the kind of girl to play by the rules. Jace is cruel. Not as cruel as some of the other bully romances I've been reading lately, but he is definitely not a nice guy. Burnt by his past, still hurting from everything that happened
