Book Review: Sweet Temptation by Wendy Higgins

Book Review: Sweet Temptation by Wendy Higgins

Young Adult Book Reviews 1 ★★★½

One Line: I’m definitely sighing for Kai after this. What I Loved: Kaiden. DONE! Ok, I know that’s not enough. But seriously, that boy knows how to make me swoon! I’m a sucker for being in a guy’s head when it comes to reading and I loved seeing the his and Anna’s story through his eyes. Seeing his feelings for Anna change so drastically, and with good/believable pacing, made me… Read more »

Blog Tour: Book Review – Capture by Rachel Van Dyken

Blog Tour: Book Review – Capture by Rachel Van Dyken

Blog Tours, New Adult Book Reviews 1 ★★★½

One Line: The romance and characters were great. In My Opinion: Add to cart! I was very hesitant to give another one of Dyken’s books a try after the disaster that was The Consequence of Revenge, but I’m always open to giving authors a second chance. Thankfully, it paid off with Capture. I was drawn to the characters right from the start and they entertained me from beginning to end…. Read more »

Blog Tour: Book Review, Excerpt, & Giveaway – Playing for Her Heart by Megan Erickson [CLOSED]

Blog Tour: Book Review, Excerpt, & Giveaway – Playing for Her Heart by Megan Erickson [CLOSED]

Adult Book Reviews, Blog Tours, Giveaways 2 ★★★½

One Line: The perfect mix of nerdy and sexy and their antics kept me fairly entertained. In My Opinion: Add to cart! This is my second book from Megan and I liked it considerably better than the first one I read, especially in terms of character appeal. Also, I liked how even though there was a kid in the book, it didn’t feel like a plot tool, but just as… Read more »

Book Review: Sustained by Emma Chase

Book Review: Sustained by Emma Chase

Adult Book Reviews 2 ★★★★½

One Line: Now this is how you do a romance book with kids in it! In My Opinion: Add to cart! I’ve had really bad luck with romance books that feature kids in it lately. Sometimes that plot tool is done right, sometimes it isn’t. In this case, Emma does it right. As if I had any doubt. Poor Chelsea is thrusted into the life of raising six kids, ranging… Read more »

Blog Tour: Book Review & Giveaway – Falling for the P.I. by Victoria James [CLOSED]

Adult Book Reviews, Blog Tours, Giveaways 2 ★★★

One Line: Such a sweet and different take on what makes a family, complete with a nice love story. In My Opinion: Add to cart! It’s been awhile since I’ve read one of Victoria’s books, but I really like the first book of hers I read, so I had to give this one a try. For the most part, I liked it. My favorite aspects of this book are of… Read more »

Book Review: Blackmailed by the Hero by Julie Particka

Book Review: Blackmailed by the Hero by Julie Particka

Adult Book Reviews 0 ★★★

One Line: A bit mild-mannered, but still entertaining. In My Opinion: Add to cart! On a scale from 1-10 on the Brazen score, this book would get a firm 5. I liked it enough, but there wasn’t anything that made me hate or love it. It was just okay. It’s not a bad second-chance love story and I liked when Vicky and Dante were together, so it’s worth a read…. Read more »

Blog Tour: Book Review, Excerpt, & Giveaway – Make Me by Tessa Bailey [CLOSED]

Blog Tours, Giveaways, New Adult Book Reviews 1 ★★★★½

One Line: Russell and Abby FTW! In My Opinion: Add to cart! I have totally shipped this couple ever since their first encounter on the stoop of Roxy, Abby, and Honey’s apartment and Tessa did not disappoint. Their story is akin to that of a princess and the stable boy, or should I say, the Duke and the virgin, given Russell’s choice of reading material. Gah! I just had so… Read more »

Book Review: Recipe for Temptation by Gina Gordon

Book Review: Recipe for Temptation by Gina Gordon

Adult Book Reviews 0 ★★★

One Line: A bit disappointing, but Cole kept things going for me. In My Opinion: Worth a try. I’ve always enjoyed this series ever since I first read about the first Madewood brother, Jack. Each brother brings something unique to the table and you know I’m a sucker for sexy brothers. Here we’ve got the budding romance of Penn and Cole. I could tell there were sparks flying between the… Read more »

My Favorite Bedtime Stories, Past and Present

My Favorite Bedtime Stories, Past and Present

Books, Parenting 2

As a part of National Book Lover’s Day, I thought it would be fitting to discuss some of my favorite bedtime stories as a child and as books I read with my children. Being an avid reader, I’ve loved books since before I knew how to read. Even growing up in a household where I was a first-generation Asian-American being raised by an immigrant mother who was learning the English… Read more »
