I can‘t stand high school romances...unless they‘re written by @authorljshen Then they are the most amazing books. So many emotions and the angst! I loved it - especially the little peeks of the hotholes 😍 #romance #romantsy #kindleunlimited

Loved it as much as Book 1, it‘s really 1 novel split into 2 books. Meghan March writes such great romance. #romance #romantsy

Does anyone else procrastinate reading books because even thinking about them being over makes you sad? That‘s why I put off reading this duet- I knew I‘d devour it in a day and then I wouldn‘t be able to read it for the first time again 😭 And I was right I loved Greer and Cav and didn‘t even get up before starting book 2. #romance #romantsy

marleed Oh absolutely. I planned to stare at my copy of The Testaments for a few days - just to enjoy the anticipation. But then I was somehow first on the library audio loan. I didn‘t want to hold onto the audio while others waited so I did I buddy read with myself. 4d

I was in the mood for some angst ridden old school romance and this was perfect. Mistresses, Greek tycoons, accidental pregnancy and amnesia. Crazy fun. #romance #romantsy

I loved this book, it was perfect up until the last chapter. The ending tied in with a huge pet peeve of mine. Totally a great book though - Tag is awesome. I literally read it in one sitting. #romance #romantsy

Great book, loved the two main characters and how they dealt with some serious baggage to be together. Rai‘s diverse characters and inclusion of some important topics, to include sexual harassment, abuse and CTE, made for an even better book.. #romance #romantsy

I‘ve read all the off shoots of this series - figured I should read this one too 😀 I was annoyed with Cat at first, but she got better and better. And I loved Bones. #romance #romantsy

I loved the descriptions of the clothing and weddings 😍 Nanya and Raj were so great - arranged marriage, but seeing how they helped each other was so sweet. Got a little teary at the end. #romance #romantsy

Not my favorite book in this series - Gage‘s “relationship” with the crazy lady while undercover while Tinker was next door just bothered me - even though I understood why it was happening - I did like the second half better than the first. #romance #romantsy

I love how Carly Phillips writes steamy romance. The characters have a history together and there‘s outside problems, but they work together as adults and talk things out (with some 🔥lovin‘)- I appreciate that in a romance. #romance #romantsy

Meh - this book was all over the place, important events were glossed over and Marissa‘s personality and her profession as a psychologist just didn‘t match at all. #romance #romantsy

This book was really good. Such a different topic with returning a girl taken by Kiowas back to her family. I want to learn more about such an interesting psychological topic. And I can totally see Tom Hanks playing the captain.

Nora Roberts is a queen of romance for a reason - and this book shows why. Really dramatic character backgrounds - trigger warning for abuse. Loved the relationship between Zane and Darby and the suspense/mystery was pretty expected, but done really well. #romance #romantsy

Book 3 in the series, but can be read as a stand alone novel.

Great book, love the relationship dynamics with a female domme and male sub. There was such a great focus on their developing relationship in all areas. This whole series has been so good. #romance #romantsy

I wasn‘t sure about this after reading reviews, but I thought it was really good. Depressing how Jamie grew up in such a difficult situation and made even worse choices for herself, but really well written and interesting.

Great book - and very timely with news of ICE raids this week. This was a really heavy and emotional book, but so good.
