Here are some relatively short book reviews for you – hopefully I’ll start getting these out more often! Since a majority of what I read is romance, I’d recommend you check recommended ages and trigger warnings before picking up a book.

Skin to Skin by Mica Rae (Under My Skin #1) ⭐⭐⭐⭐
I’m going to be honest, when I first picked it up I just read a chapter or two and was like “these characters are not for me” and I put the book down. But after a good night’s sleep I was incredibly curious what the characters had got up to, so I picked it up again and I ended up really enjoying it! It’s an accidental pregnancy romance between a kindergarten teacher (female) and a tattoo artist (male). The tattoo artist is still trying to get over the death of his wife, so grief is pretty intertwined within the book, but it was still a very cute romance.
Using Fejo by Victoria Aveline (Clecanian #5) ⭐⭐⭐⭐
This is such a cute series! While the first book, Choosing Theo, is definitely still my favorite, I’m excited we finally got to see Fejo’s story. Think outer space pirate/merchant/trader with panache who’s trying to entice a female. And said female is trying to be enticing enough that she can hitch a ride on his ship (and back to Earth) but not so enticing that she gets attached. Would definitely recommend to those who like alien romances.
Rockstar Enemy’s Baby by Lisa Ryan ⭐⭐
(minor spoilers ahead!) This book just wasn’t for me. I was hoping for a cute romance and it turned into a book largely about fighting a drug addiction. That in itself wouldn’t be a deal breaker, but the characters spend most of the book apart, so most character development happens separate to a relationship, which I didn’t really enjoy.
Big, Bossy Mistake by Lilian Monroe (Manhattan Billionaires Book 1) ⭐⭐⭐⭐
A great romance that starts with a fun, chance encounter! I’ll be vague so as to not spoil the book, but I appreciate that this one went above cliche and common tropes and actually had two people that had to actively work towards creating a positive, equal relationship.
Caveman Alien’s Pride by Calista Skye (Caveman Aliens #4) ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Another installment in the Caveman Alien series. Another great series for alien romance lovers. I loved some of the variety this book provided compared to prior books. I enjoy seeing how the author interprets the idea of prehistoric humans and dinosaurs meets modern-day linguists on a foreign planet.
