The Beau & The Belle
R.S. Grey

Genre : Adult romantic comedy
♥♥♥♥♥ (insert infinite number of hearts here)

First of all, I want to start this post by talking about this amazing author.

There’s no way you have missed my love for R.S. Grey‘s work. It’s all over this blog, my Bookstagram and wherever I talk about books.

I am a true fan of her work and I really feel like there’s no better writer in her genre. Her novels are the perfect romantic comedies. I won’t ever stop recommending her work whenever I can to everyone because I really feel sad for those who haven’t read an R.S. Grey book yet. You’re missing out! So if you want to smile, laugh and fall in love, then pick up one of her book. Her characters are all endearing and you get attached so easily because they’re real! Her plotting is perfection and full of pleasant surprises. I really wish her work was even more recognised.

Apart from her books, R.S. Grey really is one of the most genuine author. Last thing I’ll advise you is to follow her on Instagram. Her stories are fun, real and you get a true behind the scene on her work (also adorable glimpses of her life!). She really is as inspiring as the heroines she writes about. Oh, and she has a Facebook group too! Full of fun interactions and exclusive contents from time to time.

Spread the love 🙂

♥ The story 

Kulti by Mariana Zapata tells the story of Sal, a passionate soccer player, as her life is turned upside down by the arrival of the man she admired most her whole life. When Reiner Kulti, international soccer star, is appointed as coach to Sal‘s team, she discovers he’s nothing like she thought he was. He’s rude and seems not to care about anyone but himself. But as they get to know each other on a more personal level, things starts to get interesting.

Books I recommend but never reviewed – #2 : Steamy Coffee Collection series – Whitney G.

Books I recommend but never reviewed - laylareads

Hello dear and amazing readers ! 🙂

So, a week has already passed and it’s time for another post in the Books I recommend but never reviewed series.

Today, I’ll talk about a series of novella by an author I like a lot : Whitney G., but I don’t know why I never review her books. I’m too overwhelmed right after, I think. The only one I reviewed is Sincerely, Carter, which as you can see, I loved! This author is definitely on my auto-buy list.

The weird thing is I’m not generally a big fan of novellas. I prefer long and detailed books where I can enjoy the characters and story for longer. But when I saw she was writing this, I had to try because I’m a fan of her writing. And let me tell you, those 3 books are hot, sweet and dirty and perfect if you need a light and enjoyable read before going back to a heavy one. Also, if you like office-romances. Well, they all are!

Book #1

Naughty Boss – Whitney G.

Like for all those novellas, I wish they were made into super long books. That’s how much I loved them. Naughty Boss tells the story of  Mya, a pretty, efficient and hard-working assistant who works for an a**hole boss, Michael, that asks outrageous things from her. She tries to bear it and when she needs to vent she sends awful emails about him to her best friend. The problem is that she accidentally ends up sending him one. And let’s just say that if her life was hell before, it was worse after he read it. Michael is your typical alpha male : handsome and arrogant. Those two characters were great and I loved that Mya gave as good as she got in attitude. I highly recommend this read and I’m leaving you with the blurb that you absolutely need to read (yes, I’m afraid you won’t click on the link and miss that!) :

Books I recommend but never reviewed – #1 : Enemies to lovers

Books I recommend but never reviewed : enemies to lovers books - laylareads

Hello dear and amazing readers ! 🙂

I keep chatting about books everywhere lately and absolutely loving it. Be it on Instagram or Goodreads (by the way, if you feel like it, join me there for endless discussions and mutual recommendations of books).

While doing so, I kept thinking of how many books I absolutely loved and kept recommending but never properly reviewed, be it here or on Goodreads.

So I thought to gather them by theme in blog posts. I’m thinking of making them into a series : Books I recommend but never reviewed, that I’ll post every week, on Mondays (Gosh, I hope I will really commit to this and not say it but do nothing).

What I’ll be writing are not full and detailed reviews, but more like mini-reviews (at least, I’ll try to make them short). So I’ll put the GR links to the books so you can check the detailed summary.

Please tell me if the format is okay or if you have any suggestions on how I can make it enjoyable for you. Also tell me if those kind of posts would interest you 🙂

So here’s my Top 5 of the enemies-to-lovers trope :


The Hating Game – Sally Thorne

This is one of my favorite romantic comedy in the world! If anyone asks me for a good book in the enemies-to-lovers or office-romance category, this is the first one that comes to my mind. Joshua and Lucy work in the same office, right across from each other and play all kinds of games which has the same goal : making clear how much they hate the other.

Lucy is this really short, people-pleaser, vintage lover woman. Joshua is this really serious, intimidating, and awfully handsome man. But hating someone so
