Dirty Rowdy Thing by Christina Lauren

Dirty Rowdy Thing by Christina Lauren

Reviews 0 ★★★★

The second instalment of the Wild Seasons series packs more heat and romance (if that's even possible) than Sweet Filthy Boy, and reacquaints us with Harlow and Finn.

Seeing Harlow through Mia's eyes meant that I was a bit wary of this book - Mia's not exactly judgemental about Harlow's 'do em and throw em' attitude, but she never really paints in a positive light either. When I got to know Harlow a bit more, I found a funny girl who knows what she wants and has a healthy outlook on sexual relationships. Harlow also has a better family life...

Come Back to Me by Mila Gray

Come Back to Me by Mila Gray

Reviews 0 ★★★★½

Come Back to Me is my favourite kind of NA story. It’s about more than just a hot romance. It’s about family and friends and dreams and love in all its incarnations. I think it’s a beautiful story and have really enjoyed reading it!

King Hall by Scarlett Dawn

King Hall by Scarlett Dawn

I strongly believe the first scene of a novel, the first paragraph, hey, even the first words, absolutely set the tone for the rest of the book. So you can imagine what I was thinking when the first words of King Hall were “Sex Education” and the first scene was…

Slammed by Colleen Hoover

Slammed by Colleen Hoover

Reviews 1

A gorgeous, emotional read, Slammed is one of the best new adult contemporaries I have ever read. It’s not some silly YA story with some sex and violence and illness added in, it’s a real, heartbreaking story of two people who have so much to lose. This amazing story about…

The Vincent Brothers by Abbi Glines

The Vincent Brothers by Abbi Glines

Reviews 4

The second non-SpecFic book I want to highlight is The Vincent Brothers, the sequel to The Vincent Boys, which I reviewed two weeks ago. This book focusses on Sawyer, and we get to see how hurt and miserable he is after the events of The Vincent Boys, and how Lana tries…

The Vincent Boys by Abbi Glines

Reviews 2

I read a lot of contemporary over the summer and want to highlight a few books, even though they aren’t Speculative Fiction. The first of these is The Vincent Boys, a steamy read centred on Ashton Gray, and her relationships with the cousins Sawyer and Beau Vincent. The Vincent Boys…
