BOOK REVIEW : HIS ROYAL HIGHNESS

I’ve spent eight years wishing I’d fall out of love with Derek Knightley. Blowing out birthday candles, chasing after shooting stars, making it rain spare change into mall fountains—every time it’s the same wish: forget about Derek.

But the day he walks back into my life, I realize there are two things time has yet to soften: my feelings for him and his chiseled jawline.

It’s infuriating that my heart still races when he walks into a room. I refuse to fall prey to old unrequited love, so I decide the less I’m around him, the better. Avoidance is key.

Unfortunately, Derek isn’t going to make it easy. As a teenager, I would have crawled on my hands and knees to attract his attention. Now I can’t seem to escape it.

I’m not sure why he’s bothering. He’s not just out of my league—he’s out of my tax bracket. As the sole heir to the Knightley Company, he’s as close to American royalty as you can get. As for me, I’m just a part-time princess at Knightley’s flagship magical theme park.

I spend my days playing make-believe, but Derek has no use for fairytales. His unwavering confidence makes it clear he thinks I’ll surrender in the end.

He’s just biding his time.
Making me sweat.

His Royal Highness always gets what he wants.
And he wants me.


review

Nope. I just couldn’t get on board with this one. And it’s extra sad because I actually like the author!

Look, if I ever had a crush on a guy ten years older than me when I was just out of high school – which I’m sure I had – I would be super creeped out if that guy actually showed an interest in me.

But the heroine here is still holding out on her crush from 8 years ago. On a guy who was 10 years older than her and happened to be her mentor in a professional mentoring program. In the blurb, this crush is referred  to as love. It gave me the mistaken impression that these two must have had a strong connection. But no. They had only a few coffee meetings, and one long meeting where she unloaded her problems on him. And then she decided to e-mail her 28-year old mentor when she was merely 18, that they should get to know each other.

And guess what he did? He didn’t reply. The gall!

So she not only blames him for not returning her affections 8 years later, she also blames him for not having replied to her mail. The ridiculousness of it all! If I were in her place, I’d be gladder than ever that nobody replied to my mail, because I’d send such a dumb email only when I was drunk or high.

And that’s not even it. The heroine actually tells him all this when they meet in the present time and holds him responsible for breaking her heart a lifetime ago. First of all, who does that?! Second of all, who does that?! Her entitled behavior is not only immature but also delusional. This is just not normal. And I hate that the author normalized it. I even found the hero annoying for letting her get away with it.

As if this absolutely immature and ridiculously entitled behavior wasn’t enough, the heroine is also happy playing a fake princess in a theme park. The owner, who happens to be the grandfather of the hero – repeatedly offers her a better position. But she keeps refusing. Again, who does that?!

The whole theme park setting was another thing that just left me baffled. Maybe it’s because I have very little knowledge about how things work in these places, that I found it all very ridiculous how playing a prince and princess was given so much importance. I’d also expected the title of the book ‘His Royal Highness’ to be a little more literal. If not a real royal prince, then maybe a figurative royal figure of a city? I don’t know. I’d expected anything except what the story offered. And I’d probably have found the intentional misleading title cuter, if the story had meat in it.

BOOK REVIEW : MAKE ME BAD

As Clifton Cove’s resident “king”, he thinks he’s entitled to anyone and anything.

The trouble is, I’ve spent my whole life following the rules and playing it safe. I know what it feels like to be the good girl. I’m the police chief’s daughter and a librarian—for adorable children, no less. My wardrobe consists of colorful sundresses and baggy jeans. I might as well have a Post-it stuck to my forehead that reads: Yup, she’s a virgin.

An all-nighter with a fictional hunk is about as exciting as my life gets, until one day, fate decides to take pity on me and shove me straight into the path of Mr. Off-Limits himself.

Oof.

Just as I suspected, every inch of him promises to be my demise. Up close, he’s tall, menacing, dangerously handsome—the type of man who’s never spent a single moment worrying about the opinions of others. A well-behaved girl would do as she’s told and avoid him at all costs, but I’m overdue for a little rebellion.
No more Friday nights sprawled out on the couch in my comfiest pajamas. No more wishing I had the courage to misbehave.
Everyone thinks Ben is going to ruin me.
They think he’ll chew me up and spit me out.

Well, Ben…go ahead.
Tempt me. Taunt me.
Make me bad.


My favorite kind of romance – slow burn! And burn it did.

Ben and Madison were just too cute. Their growing friendship, flirting, banter, and just that overall chemistry they had going was simply irresistible. I adored Madison. She is my favorite kind of sweet, bubbly, down-to-earth heroine. And Ben was my favorite kind of ‘not-so-nice-guy’. Get my not-so-subtle-reference? You won’t if you aren’t a R.S. Grey fan like me!

I loved the forbidden aspect to Ben and Madison’s romance, with them coming from two different corners of the town, with her father and brother bearing disdain towards anything to do with Ben and his riches. But what I loved the most was the slow and simmering chemistry and tension between the two. The jealousy, the ache, the playing with fire – it was exactly everything I want in my romance reads!

This book might not have been perfect, but it was perfect for my taste. Five fluttering stars from me!

They say that all great love stories have a happy ending.

One kiss.
Two men.
Three lives.
Entwined together.

And somewhere between these two men, I had to find my forever.


review

I hate it when I can’t be aboard the hype train. I want to love the book as much as everyone seems to do! But I just can’t. I like it. But not as much as I’d hoped to have. I’m sure I’d have loved The Kiss Thief a lot more if I’d read it a few years ago. Goes to show that I really have aged as a reader.

There were tropes that I usually enjoy a lot! Enemies-to-lovers and arranged marriage. I was kinda on the edge about the love triangle but there was nothing to be hesitant about. It was clear from the start which guy’s the hero here. My problem with the book is the writing. It was juvenile at places. Some of the lines felt so ridiculous to read, especially from characters that are supposed to be senators and mafia lords.

I enjoyed the romance. I enjoyed Wolfe’s alpha persona. Francesca also was a great character, supposedly weak and naive but displaying strength and boldness when needed. Wolfe and Francesca had chemistry in spades. But I was not convinced by their decisions and actions. I was not convinced by the plot points.

I was expecting more of an insight into the decisions they make. We only see the outcomes or their decisions and realizations but not the process. Like at one point, one character admits that they love someone. But we are just told that they are in love. And that they realized it when the latter left them. And that’s it. Wait. That’s it? You put us through so much angst to just throw it like that?

I liked the ending. There is much-needed groveling and humbling. That was gratifying. But I find it lazy writing when I don’t get to see the thought process of a character even though we are reading their point of view. I’m probably being too harsh because it wasn’t a bad book. I just had higher expectations.

BOOK REVIEW : My Favorite Half-Night Stand

Millie Morris has always been one of the guys. A UC Santa Barbara professor, she’s a female-serial-killer expert who’s quick with a deflection joke and terrible at getting personal. And she, just like her four best guy friends and fellow professors, is perma-single.

So when a routine university function turns into a black tie gala, Mille and her circle make a pact that they’ll join an online dating service to find plus-ones for the event. There’s only one hitch: after making the pact, Millie and one of the guys, Reid Campbell, secretly spend the sexiest half-night of their lives together, but mutually decide the friendship would be better off strictly platonic.

But online dating isn’t for the faint of heart. While the guys are inundated with quality matches and potential dates, Millie’s first profile attempt garners nothing but dick pics and creepers. Enter “Catherine”—Millie’s fictional profile persona, in whose make-believe shoes she can be more vulnerable than she’s ever been in person. Soon “Catherine” and Reid strike up a digital pen-pal-ship…but Millie can’t resist temptation in real life, either. Soon, Millie will have to face her worst fear—intimacy—or risk losing her best friend, forever.

Perfect for fans of Roxanne and She’s the Man, Christina Lauren’s latest romantic comedy is full of mistaken identities, hijinks, and a classic love story with a modern twist. Funny and fresh, you’ll want to swipe right on My Favorite Half-Night Stand.


After being absolutely spellbound by her previous release (I still can’t get over Josh and Hazel’s adorableness), I was expecting to be wowed by Christina Lauren’s new release yet again. She’s such a favorite of mine that the expectations are always automatically heightened. But I was let down this time.

There’s a lot to love about My Favorite Half-Night Stand. I loved the friendship of the main group. All the characters had their own quirks. The banter and ribbing between the friends was fun and I could connect with their friendship. I also loved the texts between Millie and Reid. There was depth to it and I could feel the compatibility between them.

But Millie? I had MANY issues with her character. I get why she is the way she is. I also could empathize with her inability to open up. But I just could not understand the motivations behind her actions. She came off as whimsical and not at all in a relatable or adorable way. She totally played with Reid’s emotions. I found her to be emotionally immature but in a way that did not warrant any sympathy from me. I kept shaking my head in disbelief at some of the things she did and just so randomly.

Friends-to-lovers is my favorite trope but it failed to please me this time. Although, I loved the texts between Reid and Millie, I was not 100% convinced by their attraction towards each other. At one point, I wanted to see more of the friends than these two. I think that says a lot when the supporting characters interest you a lot more than the protagonists.

Although, I’m disappointed by the book, I am pleased with the world that the author created and want to see more of the characters. I’m looking forward to seeing the rest of the guys get their own stories. Fingers crossed that they live up to my expectations!

Book Review : The Kiss Quotient By Helen Hoang

A heartwarming and refreshing debut novel that proves one thing: there’s not enough data in the world to predict what will make your heart tick.

Stella Lane thinks math is the only thing that unites the universe. She comes up with algorithms to predict customer purchases — a job that has given her more money than she knows what to do with, and way less experience in the dating department than the average thirty-year-old.

It doesn’t help that Stella has Asperger’s and French kissing reminds her of a shark getting its teeth cleaned by pilot fish. Her conclusion: she needs lots of practice — with a professional. Which is why she hires escort Michael Phan. The Vietnamese and Swedish stunner can’t afford to turn down Stella’s offer, and agrees to help her check off all the boxes on her lesson plan — from foreplay to more-than-missionary position…

Before long, Stella not only learns to appreciate his kisses, but to crave all the other things he’s making her feel. Soon, their no-nonsense partnership starts making a strange kind of sense. And the pattern that emerges will convince Stella that love is the best kind of logic…


This was such a sweet story! Michael and Stella are the cutest together! If it isn’t obvious from the blurb, The Kiss Quotient is sort of a gender-swapped version of Pretty Woman with an autism twist.

I think the twist worked because the plot started off on a refreshing note for me. Stella’s character and her vulnerabilities appealed to me. I loved how she’s an Econometrician and doesn’t let her Asperger’s syndrome get in the way of pursuing what she wants.

Michael has a mixed Swedish and Vietnamese heritage. My favorite scenes all featured his Vietnamese family. The chaos borne from Stella interacting with his large and loud family were the highlights of the book for me.

Stella and Michael both suffer from insecurities – each letting their respective situations make them feel unworthy of the other. That’s why, it was beautiful to see Michael feeling cherished and valued by Stella, something he was unaccustomed to. But what made my heart swell the most was the way, in the end, Stella deals with what she feels are her shortcomings and comes to terms with them, without the help of Michael.

These little things made this story more than just a sweet romance. Truth be told, I think I made a mistake reading this book now. There were a lot of fluffy romantic parts with graphic details during which I found my interest waning. I should probably have waited for when I was in more of a mood for sweet old formulaic romances to start this book. But that’s on me. The book works perfectly fine as a romance as long as you know what you’re in for.

ARC Review : His Dark Magic (Northern Circle Coven # 1) By Pat Esden

*I’d like to thank the publisher for providing me with an ARC of this book in return of an honest review.*


Its power is legendary. It can fulfill every impossible magical desire. But for one young witch seeking redemption, the Northern Circle coven will challenge her skills—and her heart—beyond measure.

One tragic impulsive mistake made Chloe Winslow an outcast to her influential magic family. As a medical student, she wants to combine science with sorcery to heal those she hurt and right her wrongs. But brilliant, charismatic Devlin Marsh re-routes her plans with a once-in-eternity offer: membership in the exclusive Northern Circle, a mysterious Vermont coven known for pushing the limits.

Enthralled by Devlin and their mesmerizing mutual attraction, Chloe makes a dangerous sacrifice to help the Circle’s high priestess awaken Merlin himself—and learn his timeless cures. But a foreshadowing soon causes Chloe to doubt the Circle’s real motives, as well as Devlin’s . . .

Now Merlin’s demonic shade is loose in the human world, while Chloe and Devlin’s uneasy alliance will pit them against ancient enemies, malevolent illusions, and shattering betrayal. And with the fate of two realms in the balance, Chloe must risk her untried power against a force she can’t defeat—and a passion that could destroy her.


I’m conflicted about this book. I liked the mystery elements and the parts with the coven bonding. But I felt confused for half of the book.

I wasn’t happy with the world-building. For a long time in the beginning, I had many questions swirling inside my mind –  What exactly is the context of this world? Does everyone know that witches exist? Do witches and non-magical people have some sort of verbal agreement about living together and minding their own businesses? How does this alternate universe work exactly? – I’m not sure I got proper answers to these questions by the end.

At one point we get to discover that the High priestess of the coven – that the protagonist Chloe is about to join – has a grandfather named Zeus. The name of the high priestess happens to be Athena. I was thrown by that bit. I found myself wondering – Does this mean there are Greek mythological elements in it? – But then I felt foolish and realized that it makes no sense. These are witches not gods and goddesses. I think I’d have liked the author to address this pop-cultural reference in a fun way. But nothing of that.

I’ll give credit to the author for setting up the atmosphere, though. The way she sets up the surrounding nature and locale was impressive. I could almost feel myself being a part of the places.

This was a book where I liked the side-characters a lot more the main ones. I did not like the protagonist Chloe. I found many of her actions and decisions to be superficial. She felt like a very self-involved character to me. Not that I mind self-involved characters. But I like them to be intriguing and complicated. But I never found Chloe interesting.

Even the love interest Devlin left a lot to be desired. Neither did I see any depth to his and Chloe’s relationship and nor did I find their chemistry appealing. Their relationship felt just as shallow and flat like the two characters themselves.

I liked the coven members a lot. All of them had interesting quirks and histories that I wanted to know more of. Sadly, we see very little of them. I think many of them would make better main characters than Chloe herself.

I’ll end it by saying that this book did not feel like the first of a series but rather a sequel. I felt like I was missing something throughout the first half. The premise was very promising and could’ve been executed in a better manner.

ARC Review : Secrets of a (Somewhat) Sunny Girl by Karen Booth

“Thanks to the publisher for providing me with a free ARC in return of an honest review.”


As sisters, they tell each other all their secrets…except one.

With divorce and infidelity hanging from nearly every branch of her family tree, Katherine Fuller sees no point in marriage. Boyfriends? Sure. Sex? Of course. Wedding vows? No, thanks. Still, when her younger sister Amy gets engaged, Katherine gathers all the enthusiasm she can. She won’t let Amy down. She’s done enough of that for a lifetime.

As the sisters embark on wedding plans, Katherine’s college love resurfaces. It nearly killed Katherine to part from sexy Irish musician Eamon more than a decade ago, but falling under his spell a second time forces her to confront everything she hid from him. The secrets surrounding her mother’s death are still fresh and raw in her mind, but one has haunted her more than the others. She can’t bear to tell anyone, especially not Amy. It could ruin far more than a wedding. It could destroy a sister’s love forever.


Twenty years ago, a ten-year old Katherine took a decision that set in motion the destruction of her family as it was. Now, an adult, she still struggles from the aftermath of that decision. Her sister Amy does too but it’s a lot harder on Katherina who had taken an oath – a drunken oath, to be precise – with Amy to never get married. Flashforward – Now Amy is getting married and Katherine is feeling out-of-sorts about everything.

I had inconsistent feelings throughout the book. I can’t count how many times I jumped between feeling sympathy and irritation towards Katherine. I liked the relationship between the sisters. The emotional attachment between them was pretty strong. But Katherine’s self-pitying thoughts just got under my nerves pretty quickly.

I had two problems with this story –

Firstly, Katherine gets blamed for something she did when she was 10 years old. Yes. A TEN-YEAR OLD CHILD. I just couldn’t get on board with that.

Secondly, the romance was not convincing. Katherine and Eamon had a few-months long intense affair during her visit to his hometown Ireland on a vacation. But they never contacted each other for a decade until Amy – not knowing their history – takes her to his concert (he’s a rockstar now). The very next morning, they meet for breakfast and he tells her that he  wants to start a serious relationship with her and that he never got over her. His reason for not contacting her all these years? He wanted to see if they were really meant for each other by leaving it up to fate. So he left it all up to fate and in the meantime got married to another woman and they had a daughter. My eyes were twitching at this point.

Eamon and Katherine’s relationship was really rushed. Yes, they knew each other before. But that was a decade ago and only for a couple of months. I’d have liked them to take things slower, not have phone sex within a few days and then have him and his daughter live in her apartment when he returns. I also wouldn’t have minded a few flashback. Maybe that would’ve made it easier for me to buy their romance? One can hope.

Anyways, If I didn’t make it clear by now, I just didn’t like Eamon.

Final words – I just didn’t find the storytelling convincing . I did like the ending. But story as a whole failed to engage me. I didn’t feel any connection to the characters.  The premise was good but the execution left a lot to be desired.

Book Review: Block Shot by Kennedy Ryan

A STANDALONE second chance, enemies-to-lovers romance set in the cutthroat world of sports management.

They’re two sharks in a fish tank . . .

JARED

If I had a dollar for every time Banner Morales made my heart skip a beat…
The heart everyone assumes is frozen over.
Her anger is…arousing.
Every glare from those fire-spitting eyes, every time she grits her teeth, gets me…well, you know.
If I had a dollar for every time she’s put me in my place, I’d be an even richer man.
I’m a successful sports agent because I assume “no” means you’ll think about it.
I’m sure what you meant to say is “Coming right up.”
They say even rich men don’t always get what they want, but those men don’t know how to play the game. The trick is to keep them guessing.
Take Banner. She assumes she’s winning, but this game?
She doesn’t even know how to play.

BANNER

If I had a dollar for every time Jared Foster broke my heart, I’d have exactly one dollar.
One night. One epic fail. One dollar…and I’m out.
I’ve moved on.
I’ve found success in a field ruled by men.
Anything they can do, I have done better.
They can keep the field while I call the shots, blocking them when I have to.
And Jared has the nerve to think he gets a second chance?
Boy, please. Go sit down. Have several seats.
I’ll just be over here ignoring the man carved from my fantasies with a lust-tipped chisel.
Oh, I didn’t say the struggle wasn’t real.
But I’ve got that one dollar, and Jared won’t have me.


Okay, I’m conflicted about this one. I liked how it started. I liked Jared and Banner. Both of them were great characters. Banner was the strong, no-bullshit, brilliant girl with strict ethical standards. Jared was also brilliant and a no-bullshit guy. But he had a wholly different moral compass when it came to getting what he wanted. Both of them were perfectly matched. In fact, their chemistry was off the charts. I loved every moment of their interactions and conversations.

And yet, I did not like how they went about with their relationship. Some of the decisions they made were very frustrating for me. I just couldn’t be on board with it. And that’s where the disconnect happened between me and these two characters.

Kennedy Ryan can write intense stories, that’s for sure. And she can create build-up to a love story too well. I had no doubts that Jared and Banner were meant for each other. This, more than anything else, made me sad that I could not fully be on board with the direction the story took.

Also, Kennedy Ryan is an author who makes you want to devour every line she writes. That’s why it’s a bit disconcerting when there are sentences in between which are weirdly worded.  Like this one – “I’ve never felt what I did tonight with Jared, but how
can I know what really happened?” Only knowing the context helped me make sense of this line.

Anyways, I guess that’s more of an editing issue more than anything else, but when you’re in the middle of an intense scene and find a sentence that you need to read a couple of times to try to make sense of it, that’s a bit of a bummer.

Long story short, despite its flaws, it still was an intense and interesting read with a strong and badass couple. So if you’re fan of intense adult romances, then you should check this book out.

Book Review: Someone Else’s Ocean by Kate Stewart

The first time I met Ian Kemp in the sparkling blue waters of St. Thomas, I was six years old and we shared a summer beneath the stars.
The second time I met Ian Kemp, he was a shell of the boy I once knew. Turbulent and infuriating, he refused my friendship at every turn. Like me, he was a casualty of life’s cruelty, but we were planets apart.
We’d both sought refuge on the island, hoping to find our anchor. Instead, we found each other and managed to reclaim our stars…until we both got swept away.


After reading three of her books, I’ve decided that Kate Evans is just not my cup of tea. But hey, I see so much positive feedback and love for her books that it shouldn’t matter that she and I just aren’t meant to be. Right? Riiight?

Book Review: Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating By Christina Lauren

 

Hazel Camille Bradford knows she’s a lot to take—and frankly, most men aren’t up to the challenge. If her army of pets and thrill for the absurd don’t send them running, her lack of filter means she’ll say exactly the wrong thing in a delicate moment. Their loss. She’s a good soul in search of honest fun.

Josh Im has known Hazel since college, where her zany playfulness proved completely incompatible with his mellow restraint. From the first night they met—when she gracelessly threw up on his shoes—to when she sent him an unintelligible email while in a post-surgical haze, Josh has always thought of Hazel more as a spectacle than a peer. But now, ten years later, after a cheating girlfriend has turned his life upside down, going out with Hazel is a breath of fresh air.

Not that Josh and Hazel date. At least, not each other. Because setting each other up on progressively terrible double blind dates means there’s nothing between them…right?



Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating 
has been on my tbr list since I found out about it in June. My past experience has mostly been disappointing with books I get excited about. Thankfully, that wasn’t the case for this one.

This is now on my top 3 best contemporary romances I read this year. I absolutely adored this book. Josh and Hazel were perfect! Their friendship and love for each other warmed my heart.

Hazel was wonderfully weird. I could relate to her at so many levels! I like to think I’m embarrassing and lack no mouth filter just like Hazel. (Well, maybe not to the extent she is, but close.) Hazel was no-nonsense and loved herself. It was so beautiful to see her knowing that she’s too much for a lot of people and still determined to not change herself.

“The world seems full of men who are initially infatuated by our eccentricities, but who ultimately expect them to be temporary.”

We see people throughout the book being embarrassed by her and trying to tone her down. The way she handles these people and yet hides the pain she feels from that was so heartening and sad to read. Yes, I loved her larger-than-life persona, but her vulnerabilities won me over. It was also sad how she wouldn’t let herself entertain ideas of something more with Josh because she thought she wasn’t good enough for her.

“I realize that finding the perfect person isn’t going to be easy for me because I’m a lot to take,” she says, “but I’m not going to change just so that I’m more datable.”

And Josh Im? Josh, oh Josh! Josh really was the perfect guy that Hazel liked to call him. He might be the epitome of all things nice, stable and dependable. He was the antithesis to Hazel’s craziness. And yet, he wasn’t boring. The way he let Hazel shine and just be, made butterflies flutter in my stomach. And every time someone said something remotely negative about Hazel, Josh’s protectiveness springing up melted my heart. It was great to see a hero so in tune with his emotions.

“He doesn’t need me to change or pretend to be someone else. He’s my person. He’s my best friend.”

The plot was good. One thing I really appreciated was that although Josh and Hazel are forced to become roommates for a while, that’s a temporary. I’ve read enough books where something or other forces the protagonists to stay roomie permanently. But no, the friendship between Josh and Hazel was a lot more than being forced roomies.

There was no rivalry or misunderstandings. It was nice to see mutual respect and consideration between two protagonists, which is such a rarity in contemporary romances these days.

I’ve been all praises for this book so far but the direction it took at the end kind of dulled the awesomeness of the book for me. That twist wasn’t as bad as to change my love for the book. I didn’t hate it. But I think I’d have preferred a different direction than the one it took.

In short, if you like contemporary romances that are laugh-out-loud funny; have slow burn, great chemistry, steamy scenes, healthy relationships; then this is the one for you.


My Rating: ★★★★☆
