February 2021 Roundup

Book 5 of 2021

Undercover Bromance by Lyssa Kay Adams

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Adams really is a master of her craft – she writes romance, intimacy, and steam really well, but she really shines when she weaves all of those things with much heavier themes. This book is fun and light and steamy, but the heavier topic of sexual harassment in the workplace is at the forefront. I loved the message in this book and I loved seeing all the women band together and stand up for themselves and each other.

Crazy Stupid Bromance by Lyssa Kay Adams

Rating: 5 out of 5.

How do these books just keep getting better and better? Is that even allowed? Ugh, I devoured this book, and it has earned 5 stars and a place in my heart forever. A swoonworthy friends-to-lovers (the superior trope, IMO) romance between two loveable characters is really all I ever want, and Lyssa Kay Adams delivered. It was sweet and tender and heartwarming and funny, and I’m not going to lie to you, I choked up a few times.

Book 7 of 2021

The Roommate by Rosie Danan

Rating: 3 out of 5.

I was very interested when I read the premise of this book; it sounded so fun and refreshing. While it was a fun and steamy read there were a few big things that I did not like — one of the main characters, the conflict between the lovers, and the “grand gesture” at the end. I did love the sex/sex worker positivity and the emphasis on what makes a healthy sexual relationship.

Book 8 of 2021

The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Hands down the greatest book I’ve ever read. It became an absolute favorite ❤ Achilles and Patroclus have finally been given the love story they deserve. Some may call it Homeric fan fiction, but Miller said, “If it’s fan fiction, it’s fan fiction. I’m still going to write it.” And thank the gods that she did write it because it’s an epic modern classic, one that will forever live on in my heart. To me, this is literature at its best.

Book 9 of 2021

My Favorite Half-Night Stand by Christina Lauren

Rating: 4 out of 5.

There is something about the predictability of Christina Lauren’s books that bring so much comfort, like you know what you’re going to get but the getting there is really sweet. I really enjoyed this read! I identified with the MC, Millie Morris, and I loved her friend group and their dynamic. I need more CLo in my life!

Book 10 of 2021

The Wedding Date by Jasmine Guillory

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

This was my second Jasmine Guillory novel and Guillory is guaranteed to provide fun, lighthearted reads, but I like my romances with a little more depth. 

I loved a few things from this story, but I had a few problems with her debut. I read the fourth book of this ‘series’ first, and so I think that she’s grown so much as a writer and as a storyteller since her debut.

Even though this one wasn’t a favorite, I will continue to read more of Guillory’s books because I like them for what they are: easy, fun, light, and addictive romance.
