4 stars! There is a lot to love about this book, starting with it’s not a traditional rom-com, because it brings in issues of infidelity, infertility and bullying with compassion and honesty.
3 stars! Olivia is kind of a hot mess, having just accidentally burned down her new apartment in some kind of purging ritual to banish her previous relationship.
4 stars! Four authors voice the infamous March sisters in this novel based on Little Women, set during WWII.
2 stars! Clever, but not as surprising a plot twist as I was hoping for.
5 stars! Hot sex, heart of gold friends, a campaign to save a restaurant and rescue a relic from the past made this unputdownable.
4 stars! This novel is armchair travel at it’s best. Is it a romance? I still can’t answer that question, except to say Hara and Yujun’s steamy, sweet, and heartstring tugging relationship is prominent and aspirational with another cliffhanger.
4 stars! love the title and the cover of this book so much, but I do not think it qualifies as a romance novel. Rather, it is about identity and finding one’s true course, and is better categorized as fiction with strong romantic elements.
4 stars! This laugh-out-loud funny, boy-meets-prince romance between an urban (assistant) events planner — excuse me, event ARCHITECT — and the heir to the throne is a fast-paced romp littered with pop culture nods, product placement and name-dropping, angst, superhero references, social gaffs and outright disasters, and a dash of social justice.
3 stars! In the Bible, it takes Jacob fourteen years of labor to win his Rachel… in the Matzah Ball, it takes over twenty.
5 stars! Realistic portrayal of the rock star life, rabid fans who think they own their idols, and the challenges and benefits of a May-December romance.
