I love Mia Sheridan and have read almost all her books, which I loved and enjoyed. Her writing is deep and captivating and makes me subconsciously immersed to the story.

Annalia Del Valle and the twin brothers, Preston and Cole Sawyer had been best friends since they’d been kids. Lia was the daughter of a single Mexican woman and had a very tough life, whereas Preston and […]

Genres: Adult, Contemporary Romance Standalone/Series: Standalone Published on: December 2, 2014 Pages: 467 Source: Purchased Rating: 5 STARS! Buy on Amazon OMG.. One of the best books I’ve read so far. Period! I’ve never felt this level of being consumed and connected in a long time, reading wise. In a very rare occasion, I had found myself rereading a book right after I was finished reading it and even got excited all over again even though I’d already known how it would go. My heart was over the place and I was in the state of emotional roller coaster I’ve been longing for. This is why I love reading. It is to be able to experience a story on a deeper level like I did with this book: devouring and doing it again […]

Genres: Adult, Contemporary Romance Standalone/Series: Standalone Published on: February 14, 2017 Pages: 368 Source: Purchased Rating: 4 STARS Buy on Amazon Wow… This book has the power to make you completely immersed in the story without even realizing it. I was feeling like I was in the story, not the one who was reading it, since the very first page. It was getting better as I turned the pages and turned out to be completely the opposite of what I’d had in mind. What is it about? It follows an outstanding girl named Dixie. She is sweet and selfless… the kind of girl that always sees the good in people. The way she treats everyone that comes to her life makes her lovable. She is infectious, the sunshine whose light positively affects everyone […]

Genres: Adult, Contemporary Romance Standalone/Series: Standalone Published on: February 11, 2017 Pages: 282 Source: Purchased Rating: 3.5 STARS Buy on Amazon This book has all the feels that I always look for in second-chance romance: sexy, funny, and not overly angsty. It had me from the very first page; my heart was pounding with excitement and anticipation that I’d rarely experienced in reading second-chance romance. I’m usually very critical on why the main characters were separated in the past and if the reasons aren’t convincing, I rarely enjoy them. In addition to it, I don’t like an overly angsty story when the purpose is solely to make excuses for main characters to break up, fight, or do something stupid like cheating, etc. What is it about? It is about a young first-grade teacher […]

I was ECSTATIC when I found out that this book has those elements. In addition to it, the author is Karina Halle; I loved her previous books. How in this world have I not already read this book is still a mystery for me now. What is it about? Veronica Locke fell in love with Logan Shephard when she first laid her eyes on him. However, he then chose to date and married her sister instead. When her sister died, Veronica was forced—by her parents and the tough situation that she was in […]

Genres: Adult, Contemporary Romance Standalone/Series: Standalone Published on: February 9, 2017 Pages: 282 Source: Purchased Rating: 3 STARS Buy on Amazon This book is quite popular, loved, and highly recommended by readers and bloggers on Goodreads. I was intrigued after reading the synopsis and the reactions that many reviewers expressed about it, particularly, how emotional they were after reading it. Some even said that this was one of their best reads of 2017. So, I had high expectation on it. Before I explain my thoughts, let me tell you what this story is about. It follows a teenage couple, Elliot and Wade, who was very in love. Yes, Elliot is a girl (it is her real name). They had a plan set that after she graduated from high school, they would be married since […]
