My review :
Hello everyone ! If you’ve read my about me page, you know that I have to rewrite all my reviews following a technical problem. It’s quite tricky as it’s been a while since I’ve read most of the books. If you’ve spent some time on the blog, you also might have noticed that I tend to review books that I loved. It doesn’t mean that I’ve loved all my reads but I don’t see the point in detailing why I hated/disliked a book. Well, it depends. Sometimes I need to vent haha. Anyways, all of this to let you know that all my ratings (good and bad) are available on my Goodreads profile.
Let’s get back to Smut by Karina Halle. I’ve liked every previous book I read by her but this one is my favorite!
What attracted me to this book :
- The topic of writing
- Ennemis to lovers is one of my favorite trope in Romance
– Whitney G.
Genre : Contemporary romance
Notation : ♥♥♥♥♥
Okay, so I’m a sucker for ‘best-friends turn to lovers’ stories but I must admit… I’ve never, ever read anything as good as this. I’m not talking about the writing style (it was really great) but that’s not what made that story special. It was the storyline, the perfection of each characters, the cuteness, the depth, the realism of each and every moment…I literally just put down that book, and I’m still overwhelmed.
I know I shouldn’t write my thoughts about this book at this very minute because it’s still so fresh, I’m not being really objective but I will act against my best thoughts and do it anyway because a book that made me feel so much deserves a heartfelt review…
Carter and Arizona have been best friends since fourth grade, nope, fifth grade… Anyway, you’ll get the answer in the story. They’ve never crossed the line despite what everyone else think. Until one particular night.
Be My December
– Rachel Brookes
Genre : New Adult, Romance Contemporaine
Notation : ♥♥♥
I just finished Be My December by Rachel Brookes.
At first, when I read the synopsis, it didn’t really appeal to me but then I read reviews and got curious. I won this book in a giveaway, for which I thank the author again.
If I had to describe Eden and Ky’s story in one word, it would be : INTENSE.
Eden faced a more than traumatic experience when she was 20, since then it had been difficult for her to live as she used to so she keeps pretending to be someone different everytime and comes up with rules that seems really strange at the beginning but well, we kind of get it at some point…
– Meghan Quinn
Genre : Romance Sport, New adult, Romance contemporaine
Rating : ♥♥
Stroked was my first book by Meghan Quinn. The blurb appealed to me strongly as I like sports romance. Also, the reviews were good so I wanted to give it a go.
First, I must admit that it took me too much time to get into the story and as long to finish it.
It could have been an awesome read but it turned out to be just an okay read. I felt there were too many unnecessary details. For example, Bellini’s POV chapters… it’s not to be mean but I seriously couldn’t care.
The Allure of Julian Lefray
– R.S. Grey
Genre : Romantic comedy, Contemporary romance
Rating : ♥♥♥♥
My review :
I really liked R.S. Grey’s writing style in her previous book « The Design » as well as her humorous characters. I remember laughing so much while reading Cammie’s thoughts. But now ! Now, I must admit she surprised me with this book, it was on a whole new level of hilarious, sweet and cute !
Joséphine, aka « Jo » Keller is so damn funny ! She is real, authentic and represents ordinary people so well we can identify (Well, I meant very stunning ordinary people with the chance to work with a very good-looking man, but still…).
She works hard to achieve her goals, lacks self-confidence like anyone else, her situation and her debts are real too ! Her phone calls and emails with her best friend Lily who stayed in Texas are ones any ordinary girl has with her own best friend and I loved the closeness it gives us with her character.
“The first email, sitting right at the very top of my neglected inbox, was from Mr. Fuck-Me himself. Er, I mean, Julian Lefray.”
“He didn’t even know the effect those dimples had on my girly parts. One word : Ijustgotpregnant. Yeah, that’s one word.“
