Review: Royally Endowed

Royally Endowed Royally Endowed by Emma Chase
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It took me some time to get my hands on this last book in the series and now that I've finished reading it, I hate myself for not reading it sooner.

I loved, loved, loved this book!!! It's hard to say because I really enjoyed all of them...but this was probably my most favorite in the entire series. Logan was just an easily likable character. Even if I did not immediately feel warmly towards Ellie when I first read about her in the first book, she turned out to be a well deserved equal to Logan.

The book spanned for a number of years and that was probably what I liked best about it. I felt like I was really part of Ellie and Logan's lives and was there to observe how they grew into each other's existence. Its pacing was unhurried and the story felt longer than it really was. But only in the best of ways because that's how I usually want my favorite books to go--to not end!

I can't wait to read the new series spin-off and see how old friends fare.

Review: Royally Raised

Royally Raised Royally Raised by Emma Chase
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Ha, this was a fun short read. Makes me giggle inside (and grin on the outside!) reading about Henry getting a dose of his younger self in the form of his daughter. This series is proving to be such an easy series to read with all these easily lovable characters...that I look forward to maybe reading Jane's book. Fingers crossed on that one.

Review: Royally Matched

Royally Matched Royally Matched by Emma Chase
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Sooo, I have been pitifully absent in the reading game for the most part of the year. This was the longest reading slump I have ever had in my entire life. I can only promise to do better moving forward since there's just no sufficient excuse for it.

I finished this book a while back. Months ago, in fact. But I haven't gotten around to reviewing it so I had no choice but to reread it while I'm enjoying my holidays. And I was thankful that I chose to pick this book up to break my slump--this was a great read. Well, we can never go wrong with an EC read.

I had my doubts about Henry when I first met him in the first book. But this book turned out to be one wonderful surprise and made me change my mind about our hero. His chemistry with Sarah is crazy good and I just gobbled it up. Even if this was a reread, I did not hurry through it. And I still felt all the wonderful things I did the first time I read it. Ahhh.

And the best part was right at the end. EC gave us a rather extended epilogue and I loved that best. Because the characters needed a bit of more growing up to do, I really appreciated that touch. I hate when I'm given a hurried closure, an abrupt ending. Not so with this book. This book had the right touch of royally good to it...and the best way to pick up my reading again.

Review: Pucked Off

Pucked Off Pucked Off by Helena Hunting
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was a long time coming! I've been getting up close with Lance and I thought I knew what I was getting from his story. Turned out I didn't. What a trip! Although Lance was a constant fixture in the past few books in the series, I really wasn't ready to decide on how I feel about the guy. And I really thought that I was getting a story with Tash. See just how good HH is in making me believe all that?

Lies. All lies.

Because what I got was an even sexier story, an even more beautiful lady for Lance. And I finally decided that I do like him. The earlier books felt light after reading this one. This read had more angst and had a more darker tone that I was not expecting but unexpectedly enjoyed because it gave so much more character to Lance and Poppy. Such a good read!

Review: Text 2 Lovers

Text 2 Lovers Text 2 Lovers by K. Webster
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I may have already mentioned in any of my past reviews that I'm easily sold on technology-based or -related romances. So I guess I was already sold on this book just by knowing the title. And I thought this story started off really well--great chemistry between the characters and the text messaging was really all fun. Unfortunately, it kind of slowed down a bit for me after the romance became more personal and face-to-face. It should've been more intimate but I couldn't feel it enough. There was just something missing and I couldn't identify what really went wrong. A bit of my expectations just weren't met in the end or maybe I was just expecting more.

Review: Damage

Damage Damage by Stella Rhys
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This read was the epic conclusion to the Abram-Isla love story that just got complicated! Because that ending in the first book was a killer. Goddamn. I did not expect the spin. Or the spins, because there were lots of 'em. But as with the first book, I loved how well-paced this book was. In your face and no dragging on with the story. I really enjoyed the epilogue because it really detailed things that I wanted to have closure on.

PS--And I also did not expect Jesse Toro. Whaaat?! I am not ready for this villain-slash-hero. I could not even bring myself to hate him. I have not researched it yet but feel free to let me if this delicious piece of a man has his own book.

Review: Havoc

Havoc Havoc by Stella Rhys
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I have yet to read a book by SR that will leave me disappointed and I hope that will never happen. I thought that this book started with a bang. I loved how well paced the story went--although it may come off a bit too fast for some. And I loved how hot the main characters were. The attraction between Abram and Isla was full-on hot! And then the surprise twist in the end...hsdg dldvld allgdfyg!!! Totally stopped my effing heart. Wtf.
