Hook, Line, and Sinker | Tessa Bailey

I liked this, not quite as much as book 1, but it dealt with some serious subjects-specifically toxic masculinity-in a quality way. This is far more slow burn then is typical of Tessa Bailey but it fit the story. Still includes heavy steam that is typical of this author. 4⭐️

I finished this fun Beauty and the Beast retelling by Jack Harbon. This is very close to the Disney version, but very adult, both in sexy times and violence. In fact the violence was surprising as I was expecting a sexy romance read. Still an entertaining quick read 3.5⭐️

On a roll today! I finally finished the Shadow and Bone trilogy, 3 years after completing book 2 (which was so-so). It was a good finale. It‘s brutal and violent (which I forgot about) but also definitely lives in the YA space. The ending was a little abrupt but still satisfying overall. 3.5⭐️

This was a very steamy indi romance. Our heroine is a podcaster sexologist and our hero is a carpenter bondage rigger. All you need to know. I wish this had been a little longer for better relationship development, but it was a good quick read. 3.5⭐️

This was adorable queer rom-com about a Bachelor like show‘s prince and his handler. So sweet and cute and another hug of a read. Also lots of representation, LGBTQIA+ and mental health. 4.5⭐️

Another entertaining installment in the Immortals After Dark series. This is a long novella featuring two characters from previous books. Though this one lacks some of the plot of the overarching story, I still enjoyed the live story. 4⭐️

Now one of my favorites of the series. I absolutely loved our couple in this continuation of the Immortals After Dark series. Though it can be read alone, it works better as part of the series. 5⭐️

Wow this was a ride of a book. A very dark (see content warnings in comments), very hot pirate romance. It is A LOT, but I could not stop reading it. The heroes of this story are fantastic, but seriously read the trigger warnings before trying this book. 4⭐️

Nessavamusic Trigger warnings: Rape, slavery, extreme violence, torture, cheating, infertility (edited) 10mo
CrowCAH Thanks for the trigger warnings. Since I like pirates and any type of book with them in it: YA, romance, historical, I would have put it on my TBRRRRR. But, I‘m not such a fan of torture and extreme violence, especially if it‘s described. So, I‘ll have to pass. 10mo
Roary47 Oh nice. Thanks for the warning, but it looks really good! 😍 10mo

My first read of February! This was a charming contemporary romance about a meteorologist and a sports reporter that team up to get their bosses back together and fall for each other. Does deal with depression in a very conscientious manner. 4.5⭐️

OriginalCyn620 Such a cute cover! Stacked! And @Clwojick is it too late to get in on the #pantonechallenge? No biggie if so, but I keep seeing the posts and am having serious FOMO! 😩 10mo
Roary47 That sounds really fun. Trying to get people together and end up together. 10mo

This was a very entertaining creepy horror romance. Yes this is a thing! Very Buffy vibes, I do ponder if this started as a fan fic mashup of various ships. Fun read though it had a pet name I am not fond of that was mildly off putting. 3.5⭐️ On #KU
