Book Review: Act Your Age, Eve Brown by Talia Hibbert

Book Review: Act Your Age, Eve Brown by Talia Hibbert

Talia Hibbert is an author whose romance novels I’ve really been enjoying. They’re diverse, fun and the couples tend to be pretty cute. I have gone into them knowing they’re smutty. But even if that’s not something I’m a huge fan of in fiction, I’ve still been really enjoying them. I was lucky enough to get a copy of Act Your Age, Eve Brown through NetGalley, and I think it was my favourite of the series.

Eve is the youngest of the Brown sisters. She’s hopped from career to career, and after a recent mistake with doves, she’s been told she needs to hold down a job for a year. Luckily for her, she stumbles upon a chef’s role up in the Lake District. The B&B owner, Jacob, however, doesn’t take a liking to her. But he doesn’t have much choice other than to take her on.

Book Review: Shipped by Angie Hockman

Book Review: Shipped by Angie Hockman

If you’re looking for a fun enemies to lovers romance that will teach you some things, then do I have the book for you!

In many ways Shipped is very much your typical chick-lit novel but one that slips into the romance genre. Our heroine is Henley, a woman who has been working her way up through the marketing department of an adventure cruise line. When a new role is created, she’s one of two names up for the promotion. The only problem is that the other is Graeme, her incredibly attractive work nemesis. To give the both of them the chance to prove what they could do as digital marketing manager, they’re sent on a cruise to the Galapagos to see what they can come up with to help promote that area. Only, things are never as simple as we’d like them to be and being in such close quarters with Graeme on this trip may mean that Henley learns to like him a lot more than expected.

Book Review: Rescue Me by Sarra Manning

Book Review: Rescue Me by Sarra Manning

Sarra Manning is an author I’ve read before. YA contemporary, adult romance and chick-lit. I obviously prefer the chick-lit though this very cutesy book definitely sits firmly within romance.

Rescue Me follows Margot and Will who after running into eachother at a kennel wind up adopting Blossom, an adorable Staffie together. Having her a week each, they wind up spending time together and slowly falling for eachother.

Book Review: Conventionally Yours by Annabeth Albert

Book Review: Conventionally Yours by Annabeth Albert

As a general rule these days, I try to read more queer books these day written by Own Voices authors. I don’t solely read them though and this book looked like the perfect rom-com for me and it was New Adult which is an age-range I’ve not read much of. So when I saw it on NetGalley, I decided I wanted to give it a read.

Conventionally Yours focuses on Conrad and Alden, two young men who play the fictional card game Odyssey. They appear on a vlog called Gamer Grandpa with their play group and their connections to it nets them tickets to a massive con and competition in Vegas. A competition that could win them a lot of fame and money. Something both of them need. Only their journey there is going to be a road trip they won’t forget and, unsurprisingly, they fall in love.
