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

The Cursed King (Inferno Rising #4) by Abigail Owen

This series has been an absolutely delight and I am so glad I've read it. The Rogue King , the first book in the series is still very much my favorite. I discovered Abigail Owen through that book and have read a few of her other books since, this series -obviously-, and others. I highly recommend you all give this wonderful author a try. Blurb: He will burn. She will rise. Airk Azdajah, the rightful King of the White Clan, spent half a millennium being tortured by the false High King Pytheios. The only reason he’s alive is a curse— the man to kill Airk will be consumed in his own fire. Which is why Pytheios kept Airk alive, barely, unable to shift in his prison cage, driving the creature half of him into madness. Airk escaped, but he’ll never be truly free. What good is a king who can never let his feral dragon loose, never fly, and never lead his people? He’s better off dead. Angelika Amon is the last unmated phoenix. The problem? She has no powers. Zip. Zilch. Angelika hates bein

Fortune Favors the Duke (The Cambridge Brothers #1) by Kristin Vayden [arc review]

@glimpses_of_my_books Oh the beauty that is discovering new authors! Kristin Vayden is someone I had not heard of before Fortune Favors the Duke  was announced and Sourcebooks told me she is local to Washington State. I am planning a signing event with her and Lucy Gilmore this December at  Inkling Bookshop  and of-course I had to read the book ahead of time.  Fortune Favors the Duke  was utterly adorable! I managed to read this beauty in two sittings and I will be reading the other books in the series. Blurb: Quinton Errington is perfectly happy teaching at Cambridge, with his elder brother carrying the duties of being the Duke of Wesley. But when a trip to celebrate Wesley's last week of bachelorhood ends in tragedy, Quinton, who becomes the Duke of Wesley, would give anything to have his brother back. Now, under the most heartbreaking circumstances, Wesley's would-be bride, Catherine Greatheart, is left wanting. Her only protection left, her grandmother, has fallen ill, an
