My review : I should start by saying Arm Candy by Jessica Lemmon is one of the most wonderful story I’ve read in a long time. I just put it down and it’s been a while since I’ve wanted to share my views about a book right away. That says something about how excited I am.

Arm Candy is the first book I read from this author and I’m happy I got to discover her. I’m definitely going to check her other books. The writing in this one was great and I loved how I was hooked from the very beginning, how I couldn’t flip through the pages fast enough. This book was addictive.

♥ The story 

Arm Candy tells the story of Davis, a suit-wearing stock analyst and Gracie, a feisty redhead bartender. Davis is a regular at McGreevy’s, the bar Gracie works in. He sat at his regular seat every evening and they enjoy bantering until he takes home his blonde of the day/week. They’re both attracted to each other and they know it but a past full of pain prevents them from acting on it. Hence, why they banter instead.

From the very start of this book, you can sense the strong connection between Gracie and Davis. Their every interaction is fun, full of sexual tension but also holds a subtle, deeper affection. Everything flows from there. Grace bets him he can’t change his habit of dating only blondes and well, Davis can’t turn down a challenge.

My review : 

Hello everyone ! If you follow me on Instagram, you must have seen that I was lucky to receive an ARC from one of my favorite author : R.S. Grey in exchange for an honest review. I’m really happy and I thank the author and her team again. Even more now that The Foxe and the Hound has officially become my favorite novel from this author. Honestly, R.S. Grey is for me the queen of romantic comedy just like Sophie Kinsella is the queen of Chick-lit.

In general

Have you ever read a book that put a smile on your face and that you enjoy so much you don’t want it to end ? Well, The Foxe and the Hound was it for me. I’ve read Anything you can do by the same author and said that R.S. Grey couldn’t do better as I thought it couldn’t be more perfect than that. But she did it! This book exceeded everything.

Dating you / Hating you – Christina Lauren

Genre : New-AdultContemporary romanceRomantic comedies
Notation : ♥♥♥♥♥

My review : I don’t think anyone has escaped the craze around Dating you / Hating you’s release by Christina Lauren. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it and when I did, I read it in one go. I didn’t sleep for an entire night to finish it. It was that good.

 

In general 

First, I’ll have to say I’m so pleasantly surprised by this book. I’ve loved all their previous series (some books more than others). However, I didn’t expect something like Dating you / Hating you. It was something else entirely and still, you could feel it was Christina Lauren. Their humor is there, their endearing characters as well but the subject is way more serious. I found that their characters were so well thought, the story was more mature. This book is really a favorite. Well done to those wonderful authors who succeeded in writing something a bit different from what they’re used to and doing it amazingly! Read More

The Deal – Elle Kennedy (Off-Campus series #1)

Genre : Romance sportNew-AdultRomance ContemporaineComédie Romantique
Rating : ♥♥♥♥

My review :

« The Deal » or the most endearing book from the « University romance » genre ! Book one from the Off-campus serie is according to me the perfect illustration of the expression « feeling in love while reading ».

I have to admit that at the 5 first pages I was doubtful. We learned outright about the traumatic event that scarred our female character and I immediately thought there would be a lot of unnecessary drama. Then, the hero appears and I thought of the cliché of the good-looking football captain who’s full of himself. Well, guess what ? It was that…but so much more !!! (Fisrt, because he was a hockey captain and not a football one…yeah, that’s definitely not the same thing…duh.)

Garrett is confident (a little too much sometimes) but so funny and endearing. Hannah is strong, humble and smart. They’re both talented and determined. Elle Kennedy created characters with such depth and realism that I never wanted the story to end. The remarkable thing the author did in writing this book I think is : taking a « deja-vu » scenario and turning it into something entirely unique. Read More

My review :
Hello everyone ! If you’ve read my about me page, you know that I have to rewrite all my reviews following a technical problem. It’s quite tricky as it’s been a while since I’ve read most of the books. If you’ve spent some time on the blog, you also might have noticed that I tend to review books that I loved. It doesn’t mean that I’ve loved all my reads but I don’t see the point in detailing why I hated/disliked a book. Well,it depends. Sometimes I need to vent haha. Anyways, all of this to let you know that all my ratings (good and bad) are available on my Goodreads profile.

Let’s get back to Smut by Karina Halle. I’ve liked every previous book I read by her but this one is my favorite!

What attracted me to this book :

  • The topic of writing
  • The ennemis to lovers story is one of my favorite genre in Romance
