    Thank you to Kate Willoughby, Sarina Bowen, and the rest of the World of True North for the advance reader copy of Darkroom, the seventh story in the Moo U series.

You gotta read Darkroom to find out. Check out all my World of True North Reviews here. Check out the Goodreads synopsis… “Indi I’m not gonna lie, being a twenty-one-year-old virgin is ridiculously embarrassing, bordering on pitiful. And if there’s anything I hate, it’s being pitied.…

    Jami Davenport’s Gametime ARC Review

    Thank you to Jami Davenport, Sarina Bowen, and the rest of the World of True North for the advance reader copy of Gametime, the fourth story in the Moo U series. This is my first review for a story in the Moo U series and I am so excited to be finally jumping on the train. I have always loved College Hockey Romance. Sarina Bowen created such a phenomenal world and I have already been enjoying what her work inspired in other authors. I absolutely adored the previous three Moo U books, so I was pumped to finally be getting the twins’ story. Check out the Goodreads synopsis… “One drunken night and…

    Jay Crownover’s Goldilocks ARC Review

    Thank you to Jay Crownover and her team for the advance reader copy of Goldilocks, this story releases on the 15th! If you are not a Jay Crownover fan you won’t know about her newsletter books. Goldilocks started like that, a few chapters were released every month. I read about half the story that way and then fell off from reading it. I jumped at the chance to finish it after I found the first half super compelling and the rest of the book did not disappoint. Check out the Goodreads synopsis… “For Olivia Adams, the world has always been too big or too small. Forced to live her life caught between…

    Fiona Cole’s Just For a Little While ARC Review

    Thank you to Fiona Cole and Valentine PR team for the advance reader copy of Just for a Little While. This story was previously in Stories of September, but now Fiona brings an extended story to the table. I absolutely adored the story in its first iteration as I have always been a huge fan of Fiona’s previous take on the student-professor trope. If you have never read Voyeur, please do; it is phenomenal! So I jumped at the chance to review the extended version of Willem and Arabella’s love story. Check out the Goodreads synopsis… “After a year of traveling abroad, my parents finally trap my free-spirit into college. Even worse, my…

    Allie Winters’ Let Go ARC Review

    Thank you so much to Allie Winters for reaching out and providing me with an advance e-copy of her debut novel, Let Go. Here is the Goodreads synopsis… “She keeps her heart locked up tight Putting yourself out there? Getting close to others? No, thanks, I’ll pass. It’s safer to keep to yourself. I’ve learned that lesson the hard way. So when I accidentally tell the muscled hunk I’ve been secretly drooling over all semester how I really feel about him, it’s not like I meant for him to take an interest in me. I don’t want a boyfriend. Not even when it turns out he’s so much more than…

    Elle Kennedy’s The Risk ARC Review

    I want to thank Elle Kennedy and her team at Nina Bocci PR for providing me with an advance reader copy of The Risk, the second book in the Briar U Series. I was astounded to be accepted for this review, as I have been a huge fan Elle Kennedy’s for years. I first read her most famous book, The Deal back in 2016. The Deal established Elle Kennedy as a go-to author for the Hockey Romance trope. I am also biased in my love for her, because she is a fellow Canadian, and I love supporting Canadian authors. Here is the Goodreads synopsis: “Everyone says I’m a bad girl. They’re only partly right—I…

    Are You New to NA… These Are the Hockey Romance Novels You Must Read (and Mini Assignment #4)

    I am going to come out and say it, I love reading hockey romance.   First of all, you need to understand that I am not a fan of hockey, not of sports in general. Why then do I enjoy the trope?! Hockey Romance is the best way to convey a story on the premise that the guy has a reputation and the girl judges him for it. But as they fall in love as she realizes that he is more than just the rumours, that she never really understood who he truly was at the beginning of the story. This premise is such a beautiful way to read about…

    Are You New to NA… This is Where You Should Start

    I was lucky when I started to read New Adult a few years ago that there were many reviewers that steered me in the right direction, so I want to do that for you now. There are important things to consider when jumping into NA for the first time: Don’t go hardcore or extreme right away! This might put you off NA forever. NA deserves a gradual entry, one should start with novels that tow the line between NA and YA. My recommendation for someone’s very first NA book is… Slammed tells the story of an eighteen-year-old girl who moves to a new city with her mother, after the death…
