Book Review: Last Will and Testament by Dahlia Adler

Book Review: Last Will and Testament by Dahlia Adler

Since meeting Dahlia at BEA last year, I’ve been in awe of her utter awesomeness. (*cough* I’m not a kiss ass. Whatever.) And I’ve been more curious about new adult books in the last year, so when I heard about Last Will and Testament, my interest was piqued. But I was also worried, because WE TALK and stuff and WHAT IF I DON’T LIKE IT OMG THE WORLD WOULD END. I shouldn’t have worried, really. Last Will and Testament is excellent and one of my favorite new adult titles to date. I’ve read quite a few of these NA student-teacher relationship books, but I have […]

Book Review: Teaching Roman by Gennifer Albin

Book Review: Teaching Roman by Gennifer Albin

I guess this is karma, right? I read Catching Liam and I was totally in love – filled with hope for more NA books I could completely fall in love with – and then the SAME AUTHOR just has to ruin everythinggggggggg. Teaching Roman is just blah. So bad, it’s almost hilarious but for the fact that I want to cry. I can’t even believe the sheer stupidity that happened in this book. But I’ll try to keep calm and explain. My basic problem with Teaching Roman is that it is nothing but sex. And I like my sexy scenes every once in a while […]

Book Review: Catching Liam by Gennifer Albin

Book Review: Catching Liam by Gennifer Albin

What’s that? A perfect score for a self-published new adult book? YEAH. I’m almost as surprised as you are. But honestly, Catching Liam is basically everything I ever wanted from a new adult novel and it just makes me SO SO SO HAPPY. I should note that prior to reading Catching Liam, I read about 4 other new adult books. I’m binging at the moment. I need the swoons. But whereas all of those previous reads fell to the new adult pitfalls of too sappy, too much sex, too much “sex solves everything”, too much “your love has healed me, let’s be together foreverrrr”, Catching […]

Book Review: Inspire by Cora Carmack

Book Review: Inspire by Cora Carmack

I start this review with pretty much a broken heart. Anyone who knows me has probably heard me yelling about my love for Cora Carmack. She could do no wrong in my eyes. Then… Inspire happened. Inspire was an attempt to bring us something new: new adult paranormal romance. Until now, the only new adult books have pretty much been contemporary romances, so it was exciting to hear that this would be something different. This would hopefully combine some awesome paranormal/fantasy aspects (because I am alllllll about the Greek mythology, seriously) with the hotness we’ve come to expect from new adult books and more specifically […]

ARC Book Review: Rebound by Noelle August

ARC Book Review: Rebound by Noelle August

After falling head over heels in love with Boomerang last year, it was a given that I would read the next book in the series, Rebound. In fact, when I heard it would be about Adam and Alison, I was SUPER excited. The glimpses we got of the two in Boomerang already promised great shipping potential. Rebound was an entertaining, sexy, refreshing read, but not quite as good as its predecessor. I came into Rebound after only reading fantasy so far this year, so it was an extremely exciting breath of fresh air to me. Right off the bat, I was in love. I loved […]

ARC Book Review: When Joss Met Matt by Ellie Cahill

ARC Book Review: When Joss Met Matt by Ellie Cahill

One of my favorite author discoveries in 2014 has to be Liz Czukas – I loved Ask Again Later and Top Ten Clues You’re Clueless – so when she announced a new adult book under a pen name, it was pretty much at the TOP of my wishlist. When Joss Met Matt is banterfluffy perfection, with plenty of swoony sexiness, which all made for the best refreshingly addictive read. So When Joss Met Matt is the quintessential friends-with-benefits romance. Joss and Matt meet in college, and after Joss gets dumped by her loser boyfriend, they come up with the idea of sorbet sex. Their theory […]

Book Review: All Broke Down by Cora Carmack

Book Review: All Broke Down by Cora Carmack

In my latest hopeless romantic binge, I decided I should finally finish my reading of all of Cora Carmack’s books to date. All Broke Down cements her as one of my all-time favorite, auto-buy authors. This woman writes absolute magic. Her characters are so different yet always manage to be relatable. She tackles real new adult issues while simultaneously bringing us the steamiest of romances. All Broke Down is no exception. Now, you’ll notice that I didn’t think this book was really perfect – and that mostly comes down to the characters. Though different and to an extent relatable, I didn’t have the strongest connection […]

Book Review: Finding It by Cora Carmack

Book Review: Finding It by Cora Carmack

After I quickly binge read and loved Losing It and Faking It by Cora Carmack, I put off Finding It, the last book in the series, because I just hadn’t heard many good things. After some time, my desire for more hot romances loaded with chemistry (preferably by Cora Carmack) trumped my hesitance, and I’m happy to announced that I loved Finding It. It is my least favorite of the three, but that’s hardly worth mentioning, because with its heartbreakingly realistic characters and hot romance, it’s a truly great read. Now, Finding It probably won’t work for everyone. Reading some of the many negative reviews […]
