♥ 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.

– A. Meredith Walters
Genre : Suspens, Contemporary romance, New Adult
I started Exploited by A. Meredith Walters a month ago. But I had a really hard time getting into the story so I put it down then picked it back up only a few days ago. And when I reached chapter 6, I just couldn’t stop.
♥ The story ♥
Exploited tells the story of Hannah, an IT employee by day and a hacker by night. She has a mission and refuses to be stopped. That’s why she decides to get close to the FBI agent who’s on her case. So she can know if they’re close to finding out her hidden identity. What she hasn’t planned is falling for the said agent : Mason.
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 Read More
– 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.
The Fortunate Ones
– R.S. Grey
Genre : Contemporary romance, New Adult, Romantic Comedy
The Fortunate Ones by R.S. Grey was one of my most anticipated release of this year. Every time this author releases something I have to get my hands on it ASAP. It simply means a guaranteed good time for me. And once again she did not disappoint. I don’t know how she does it every single time. She’s truly talented.
Also, I had the great honor of receiving an ARC of this book for which I thank the author again, in exchange of an honest review.
♥ The story ♥
Brooke Davenport works as a cabana girl at Twin Oaks Country Club for sometime now, thanks to her elder sister Ellie. But that is not her dream job. She has a diploma and a talent for languages she actually plans to use. Having spent some time in Europe as an au pair, she wants to find that kind of job again and be able to teach. The only positive point in working at the country club is the gorgeous James Ashwood. She can admire him from afar and be content with that. Until the moment he asks her to “Come and have a seat“. Then, everything changes.
