Let's Connect

Kelly Jensen’s Let’s Connect was originally written as a serial for the author’s newsletter subscribers, but now she’s collected the instalments together and published them as a novella.  It’s a charming, funny and poignant story about a fifty-year-old divorcé who alternates between wond ...

Loathe at First Sight

I was really excited by the premise of Loathe at First Sight. It’s easy to root for a heroine who is in a hostile environment, and enemies-to-lovers is a well-established trope, especially in the workplace. I liked a lot about the book, but the end was unsatisfying. Melody Joo is a young woman ...

I enjoy hanging out on Twitter, but I’ve also seen more than a few kerfuffles and outright flame wars going on there. That’s part of why Tweet Cute appealed to me. I was lucky enough to win an ARC on Goodreads, and this tale of love and social media was adorable. It was definitely a winning way ...

Dark Matters

The Class 5 series is the absolute best space opera romance available. I’ve adored every one of the books in the set and Dark Matters, fourth in the saga, is no exception. I would strongly recommend reading all three preceding novels; this one is enjoyed best when you know the backstory. She ...

How to Hack a Heartbreak

How to Hack a Heartbreak is a delightful book – a breezy read that grabs the reader from the first page. What amazes me is although I know that Rockaway could not possibly have written Heartbreak yesterday, it reads that way; it’s so of-the-moment. I can see readers juggling Ronan Farrow’s Ca ...

Love and the Laws of Motion

Love and the Laws of Motion is an enjoyable tale of unexpected love between a reclusive astrophysicist and a brilliant, but slightly misguided computer hacker. It’s the second book in Amanda Weaver’s The Romano Sisters trilogy and, like the first book, it’s a delightful read full of lovable ch ...
