The Friend Zone, Superfan, The Unhoneymooners & More! | Recently in Romance

Hi guys! Sorry for my long hiatus, blogging always goes out the window for me when my kid isn’t sleeping well! I’ve read some AMAZING romances in the meantime, though, so I hope you’ll check out some of these fan favourites, especially if you’re looking for a beach read! Review: The Friend Zone by Abby Jimenez Loved this unique story of self-discovery, love at all costs, and friendship. The Friend Zone by Abby Jimenez surprised me in the best way possible. Going into the book, I was initially super annoyed by heroine Kristin Peterson’s brashness and her prejudices against anything […]

Two Contemporary Romances To Read Immediately: 99 Percent Mine by Sally Thorne & Overnight Sensation by Sarina Bowen

Hello all, I’ve read some crazy good romances recently (look out for more romance reviews soon) but both 99 Percent Mine by Sally Thorne and Overnight Sensation by Sarina Bowen are the cream of the crop. They definitely belong at the top of your To Be Read list, and should be read immediately! Read on for my thoughts! Review: 99 Percent Mine by Sally Thorne A solid sophomore effort by Sally Thorne, author of the smash hit romance The Hating Game, 99 Percent Mine has similarly well-defined characters, weird metaphors, and the same intensity of Thorne’s first work. Darcy Barrett […]

The Good Luck Charm, Boy Toy, Making Up, and Sweet & Wild | Recently in Romance #9

Hi all, it’s summer, so I’ve been reading a ton of romance! I’ve got a couple of new romances for you to consider – two releasing this month, a couple from fave authors, and one that I read and re-read because it was so darn good. Give them a look! REVIEW: THE GOOD LUCK CHARM BY HELENA HUNTING You guys know how much I love my hockey romances, so when The Good Luck Charm by Helena Hunting (Toronto author, yay!) was pitched to me, I was an immediate yes. The Good Luck Charm is a second chance contemporary romance starring […]

The Slow Burn Office Romance You Need: Brooklynaire by Sarina Bowen

The Slow Burn Office Romance You Need: Brooklynaire by Sarina Bowen

I think this is my highest rating ever for a Sarina Bowen novel, and that’s saying something. Sarina writes some of my favorite new adult romances, and every single one of her books is an immediate must-read for me. The reason this one struck me so hard? It’s the slow burn of the century. If you’ve read the rest of the books in Sarina’s Brooklyn Bruisers series, you’ll know that she’s already hinted at the romance between billionaire tech guru Nate Kattenberger, owner of the Brooklyn Bruisers hockey team, and his office manager, the sassy Rebecca Rowley. Those glimpses were […]

Your Next Rom-Com Reads: Man Hands and Man Card by Sarina Bowen & Tanya Eby

Friends, as many of you know, I am Sarina Bowen-obsessed. So when I heard she and Tanya Eby were writing two rom-coms called Man Hands and Man Card, I leapt at the chance to review them. Sarina is a great at partnering with other authors to write the best new adult romance out there (see: the Him series; Temporary, etc, etc). Her romances are packed with loveable, relatable characters, found families and friendships, and swoony moments. Please note: These are R-rated, and you may snort laugh while reading these. I sure did. And they got me out of my first month […]

Recently in Romance #7 | New Sarina Bowen, Elle Kennedy & all the Kennedy Fox!

Since becoming a romance reader a few years ago, I’ve struggled to figure out where romance reviews belong on my site.

Recently in Romance is my mini-review feature where I bundle my recent reads and buys for those of you who are fans. Recently Read: Stay is all about Matt Eriksson, star forward on the Toronto hockey team, and teammate of Ryan Wesley (from HIM and US), and Blake Riley (from US and GOOD BOY). Matt’s been burned by […]
