It’s been more than three weeks since I finished this book but I couldn’t write my review right away because I was too overwhelmed. Also, I was seriously lost after reading it and didn’t know how to rate it. This book really confused me. I loved it, then hated it and finally adored it. I guess if it made me feel so much, it might have been a great read.
I’m sincerely struggling on how to write my review. I want to stay simple and just say if I liked it or not and why, as I do for any other reads but I can’t talk about Roomies without getting personal. After hesitating a lot, I decided to just write whatever comes to my mind, whatever I feel like writing. This blog is a place I created to share my love of books and I love reading because of how it makes me feel. So here goes and I won’t blame you if you just can’t go through this review (apologies in advance for the ranting, haha!).

Lies Jane Austen Told Me – Julie Wright

– Julie Wright

Genre : Contemporary romance
♥♥♥♥

Lies Jane Austen Told Me is the first book I read by author Julie Wright. I didn’t know what to expect when I started it but wasn’t disappointed. This was a great, entertaining contemporary romance and I enjoyed reading it. Also, I absolutely love the cover of this one!

♥ The story 

Lies Jane Austen Told Me : Ever since Emma read Pride and Prejudice, she’s been in love with Mr. Darcy and has regarded Jane Austen as the expert on all things romantic. So naturally when Emma falls for Blake Hampton and he invites her home to meet his parents, she is positive an engagement is in her future. After all, Blake is a single man in possession of a good fortune, and thus must be in want of a wife.
But when it turns out that what Blake actually wants is more of a hook-up than a honeymoon, Emma is hurt, betrayed, and furious. She throws herself deeper into her work as CMO of Kinetics, the fastest growing gym franchise in the nation. She loves her work, and she’s good at it, which is why she bristles when her boss brings in a consultant to help her spearhead the new facilities on the East Coast. Her frustration turns to shock when that consultant turns out to be Blake’s younger brother, Lucas.

Emma is determined not to fall for Lucas, but as she gets to know him, she realizes that Lucas is nothing like his brother. He is kind and attentive and spends his time and money caring for the less fortunate.

What she can’t understand is why Lucas continues to try to push her back into Blake’s arms when he so clearly has fallen as hard for her as she has fallen for him. It isn’t until Lucas reveals to Emma that he was adopted into the Hampton family that she begins to understand his loyalty to Blake as well as his devotion to the child April-she is Lucas’s biological niece.
Emma opens up to Lucas about the feelings of abandonment she has harbored ever since she was a child and her mother left the family. As she helps Lucas deal with his past demons, she is able to exorcise some of her own.
Realizing that her love life is as complicated as anything Jane Austen could have dreamed up, Emma must find a way to let Blake know that it’s time for him to let her go and to let Lucas know it’s time for him to love her back.

The Goal
– Elle Kennedy

Genre : Sports romance, New Adult, Contemporary romance

Book 1 | Book 2 | Book 3 | Book 4
♥♥♥

When I started this series it was with no real expectations. I loved The Deal , liked The Mistake , absolutely LOVED The Score and as excited as I was about The Goal , I didn’t think I would read something better than Dean’s book from that series. But God…Tucker

 

♥ General impression 

From the other books we have a certain image of him, the caring one, the mature one, the sensible one… but the stars of the hockey team took too much of the focus in the previous books for me to have really noticed him. I’m so happy Tucker got his book because it was amazing and it is definitely my favorite.
