Stealing Her – an achingly honest, emotional and controversial romance.

This book had me all over the damn place. From feeling hopeful to uncomfortable to practically swooning with glee, my emotions were put through the wringer in Stealing Her. The reason for this was my simultaneous adoration for the characters as well as slight repulsion at what they were doing. I wanted them to have their happily ever-after and yet I acutely disliked the only means in which they could attain it. Despite the emotional roller-coaster and the fact that I hadn’t read one of her novels in years, Rachel Van Dyken has impressed me again after all of this time.

Author of September: Madeline Ash

It's that time again! A new month and a fresh spotlight on an author we are currently gaga over - Madeline Ash. With the release of Her Cowboy King in July, as well as the up-coming release of His Billionaire Bride, out September 3rd, we couldn't think of a better author to spotlight than Madeline Ash. We adore her books and think they deserve more attention! She also just so happens to be a lovely human being that's been so kind to us during the start of our bookish blogging journey.

It’s a place to talk about the books you’ve been reading, plan to read and have read. Sounds fun, right? This is my first WWW Wednesday and I'm excited to give it a try!

The Love Solution – a story of unrequited love and a chemical potion to fix it all.

The Love Solution is the story of two sisters fighting the memory of unimaginable loss with the present day’s complexities of unrequited love. The first third of this story really captured my attention. It’s not often women in science are primarily featured in a book and I felt a kinship with Molly.

What if it’s Us – a cute coming-of-age love story with unexpected depth.

This story kinda broke me. Without sharing too many spoilers, it’s safe to say that I’m not a resilient reader and the ending of this story completely blindsided me. Maybe in a good way. I haven’t quite come to terms with it yet. Or perhaps I’m just too much of a sap. Either way, this is one story I think I’ll read again. If only to re-write the ending in a way that makes my heart beat a bit better!

Vengeful Prince: a heart-warming reverse harem paranormal romance.

I ADORED the slow-burn love that happened in this story. The friendships between the fae, shifter and vampire princes immediately drew me in. Who can resist a bromance of that calibre? Certainly not me. Add in a lively, moral and considerate kick-ass female lead and I was highly enjoying the story from the beginning.
