Her Perfect Affair

Priscilla Oliveras had a successful debut romance with His Perfect Partner, the first in the Matched to Perfection series about three Puerto Rican sisters finding love amid the laughter and tears of everyday life. I enjoyed that story, though I did find it quite emotional as the women deal with thei ...

Bad Bachelor

On the surface, Stefanie London's latest release, Bad Bachelor, is a fun, romantic comedy with a modern premise. It's the story of an unlucky-in-love librarian finding herself in a relationship with a playboy bachelor she first sees on a dating app. While it definitely lives up to that promise, it a ...

Summer Hours at the Robbers Library

Sue Halpern's Summer Hours at the Robbers Library caught my attention initially because of its title, and then, once I read the synopsis, I knew it was a book I absolutely had to read and review.

Ready to Fall

Ready to Fall is an example of tropes done right. There are a ridiculous number of them on display in this eighty-five page novella, from the librarian looking for love to the damaged-by-previous-relationship hero, but the story uses them so well - and with a big dash of humor - that it all works. ...

Practice Makes Perfect

I’m a sucker for romances set on college campuses and this definitely fits the bill, with a college librarian as heroine and history professor as hero. At times laugh out loud funny, this was also always spot-on with insights into academia, while still featuring a sexy friends-to-lovers plot. I ca ...
