Royal Pain: Tracy Wolff

I read this one a while ago, and did a reread before writing this. I have to say, it was just as sweet the second time around. I love the commoner to royalty trope, like, seriously love it.

Savvy is a commoner who fell in love with not one, but two princes. The first was kind of a dick, but the second, His Royal Hotness, Prince Kian, just enjoyed using his. Their meet cure was hilarious, but perfect. Kian was the the playboy prince won over by Savvy.

Their relationship had a few rough patches, but Kian really was a good guy. I loved that he cared so much about Savvy, and I love where their relationship ended up. The dual points of view in this book were so well written I felt like I was there with each of the characters. 

Prince Garrett (Kian's older brother) played a big part in this book, even though he wasn't present for most of it. He missed out on a wonderful girl, and Kian more than made up for it. I can't wait to read Garrett's book, and all I want is one giant apology from Garrett to Savvy.

This was a quick and easy and light read (aside from the whole kidnapped prince bit). I enjoyed the characters and the plot, it was just so sweet.

Trust: Kylie Scott

As much as I love some of Kylie Scott's other books, this one felt a bit off the mark. I think she just did too good of a job writing a high school character. Because reading this was exactly like being back in my high school minded self . *shudder*

Edie and John were both likable characters, they each had some deep-seated issues that needed to be worked through, but overall were well written and easy to understand their nature. The book was enjoyable, but hard to read at some parts. It felt like a very serious issue, that most of the characters in this book didn't take seriously, and things got a bit crazy at the end.

It was a quick read, great for those of you who enjoy drama filled books.

The Billionaires: The Bosses: Calista Fox

Finally one that kept my attention outside of the ridiculous romance story. It was a bit longer, but worth the read. It seemed easier to enjoy the characters, and be interested in what they were doing, they had a story, some background, and worked well together. It wasn't just romance where they fell in love on the first day and live happily ever after. It was a fast romance, but didn't seem too ridiculous. Well done!

Addiction: Calista Fox

The sheer overuse of the word "sob" and its various forms ruined this book for me. Also, I have lost track of all the different love triangles in this series. There are entirely too many names to keep track of. These books started off really good and interesting, and just sex books, but it is getting more difficult to like them.

I Need You Tonight: Stina Lindenblatt

Finally! A romance book that I enjoyed. I really liked Mason as a character. I loved his development in this book, and the relationship with Nicole. It seemed so natural for them to start as friends and progress to love. They were great for each other, kinda. This book dealt with a lot of serious topics, and they were covered well. I love that Nicole was so strong when dealing with really shitty stuff in this book.

Mason was a good guy, even if it took him a bit longer than normal to truly get there. Which brings me to the end of the book. I felt a little disappointed, but not with the story itself, with the result of Mason's actions. I'm curious as to what's going to happen in the following books and I'm looking forward to finding out.

Wrong Turn, Right Direction: Elle Casey

I have been following Elle Casey for quite some time now. I love this author and she writes amazing books. This one seemed a bit different from her other books. I felt a bit more serious, and maybe a little more outlandish than the past ones. It still had the comedy, the sweet moments, and the serious moments. I liked it, but not as much as her other books.

Mika was difficult for me to like. I understand why she didn't trust anybody, but it was frustrating when things kept getting prolonged because she wouldn't tell anyone anything. Thibault was her perfect match because he was such the opposite. Although he hated it, he totally had a Superman complex, but it was a good thing. 

These two ended up making a great couple, but I wish the falling in love period would have been a bit longer. It was still a well-written and well thought out book. A quick read that was pleasant and still fairly enjoyable.

The Dangerous Billionaire: Jackie Ashenden

I feel like I need to take a break from romance books. I haven't really liked many of these typical run-of-the-mill books. This one wasn't much different. Honestly, quite a few parts of this one were a little creepy. I get that the two characters aren't related, but something about the relationship history just didn't sit right. This one was another flop for me.
