Book Review: Defending Taylor by Miranda Kenneally

Book Review: Defending Taylor by Miranda Kenneally

If you’ve been around for a while, reading my reviews, you’ll probably know that Miranda Kenneally is one of my favorite contemporary romance authors. Her books are always perfectly timed, because if anything, they’re the perfect summer reads. But, this being the 7th book, it figures that at some point, she’d resort to tropes that are less my thing. Though I enjoyed Defending Taylor, it wasn’t that special to me. All of the Hundred Oaks books focus on a sport or passion and some shippy romance. This time, the sport is soccer – score, one of the only sports I really like. The main character’s […]

Blog Tour Review + Giveaway: Jesse’s Girl by Miranda Kenneally

Blog Tour Review + Giveaway: Jesse’s Girl by Miranda Kenneally

A new Miranda Kenneally book is always cause for celebration. Since reading all 5 Hundred Oaks books last year, I’ve known I can count on her to bring the fluffy swoons and dynamic characters that instantly put a smile on my face. Such is the case again with Jesse’s Girl. Honestly, by this point, I can’t imagine Kenneally ever letting me down. Jesse’s Girl is the first book in the Hundred Oaks series that is completely unrelated to sports – however, there’s another “hobby” to take its place: music. The main character, Maya (Sam Henry’s little sister), dreams of becoming a musician. She adores 80’s […]

Book Review: Racing Savannah by Miranda Kenneally

Book Review: Racing Savannah by Miranda Kenneally

I start this review in acute distress because I’M OUT OF MIRANDA KENNEALLY BOOKS NOW AND WAITING IS HORRENDOUS. *cough* Racing Savannah is another excellent installment in her Hundred Oaks series, with another swoony romance and a great southern vibe. The sport in question for Racing Savannah is horseback riding, which is new to me, but opens the door to so much adorableness. Savannah quickly becomes close to Tennessee Star, a tricky horse with an impressive pedigree. He hates men, but loves Savannah, and the two together… So magical! Also, the whole story takes place at a ranch, which means cowboys, which is like… hell […]

Book Review: Things I Can’t Forget by Miranda Kenneally

Book Review: Things I Can’t Forget by Miranda Kenneally

I suppose that with every series, it’s natural to encounter a book you like less than the others. It pains me to say that that is Things I Can’t Forget for me. Though I won’t say this book was bad – I still swooned and enjoyed the romance – there were multiple factors that kept me from really connecting with it. Things I Can’t Forget is less sports-focused than the other books in Kenneally’s Hundred Oaks series. Kate used to be a soccer player, but a knee injury put a stop to that. Instead, the story focuses on a summer church camp, where Kate and […]

Book Review: Stealing Parker by Miranda Kenneally

Book Review: Stealing Parker by Miranda Kenneally

My heart hurts right now. Though less cheery and bantery than Catching Jordan, Stealing Parker hit me right in the feels and was so meaningful… I need to just take a moment. *breathes out* Phew. I’m okay. I didn’t know what to expect at all, going into this book. I hadn’t read the premise, since I got it for my birthday from Christina and was resolved to read all the Miranda Kenneally books in existence anyway. The two others that I’d read, Catching Jordan and Breathe, Annie, Breathe were much more romance-centric than Stealing Parker, I think. Stealing Parker was more about character growth to […]

Book Review: Catching Jordan by Miranda Kenneally

Book Review: Catching Jordan by Miranda Kenneally

With so many review copies looming, and many of them being dense fantasies or dealing with tough subjects, I desperately needed something light. Thankfully, Christina gave me all the Miranda Kenneally books to save me on a rainy day. I’d been waiting long enough to finally squeeze Catching Jordan into my TBR pile, and I do not regret forgetting about all my obligations for a day. Yes, I devoured this book in one sitting because it was ALL OF THE ADORBS. First of all, this book is all about football – the American kind that I do not care for. But that didn’t matter. Jordan […]

ARC Book Review: Breathe, Annie, Breathe by Miranda Kenneally

ARC Book Review: Breathe, Annie, Breathe by Miranda Kenneally

Miranda Kenneally’s books have been recommended to me time and time again by the lovely Christina, so while it may seem weird to you that I would read the 5th book in a series first, I promise it’s not actually that strange. Though Hundred Oaks is a series, they are more companion novels than true sequels to each other. The fact of the matter is, I ended up in line for this book at BEA, met Miranda, and thought, “Why not read it?” It felt like the right thing to do, having an ARC, and I was in the mood anyway to have a serious […]
