Book Review: I’ve Got Your Number by Sophia Kinsella

I’ve lost it. 😦 The only thing in the world I wasn’t supposed to lose. My engagement ring. It’s been in Magnus’s family for three generations. And now, the very same day his parents are coming, I’ve lost it. The very same day. Do not hyperventilate, Poppy. Stay positive!! 🙂

A couple of glasses of bubbly with the girls at a charity do and Poppy’s life has gone into meltdown. Not only has she lost her engagement ring, but in the panic that followed, she’s lost her phone too. As she paces shakily round the hotel foyer she spots an abandoned phone in a bin. Finders keepers! Now she can leave a number with the hotel staff. It was meant to be!

Except the phone’s owner, businessman Sam Roxton, doesn’t agree. He wants his phone back, and doesn’t appreciate Poppy reading all his messages and wading into his personal life. As Poppy juggles wedding preparations, phone messages and hiding her left hand from Magnus and his parents, can things get any more tangled?

Book Review: Unveiled Attraction by Chelsea M. Cameron

Maeve Ivey doesn’t have time for bullshit. She’s got her bridal boutique to run, she just started designing custom wedding attire, and she’s healing from a vicious breakup. Plus, she also has a cat named Shady that needs plenty of belly rubs.

Everything changes when her makeup artist quits and in walks Cedar Shay to interview for the job. The very same Cedar Shay that Maeve spent one reckless and steamy night with a thousand years ago. Okay, it wasn’t a thousand years ago, but it was way in the past. To top it off, that was Maeve’s first time, period. Of course, Maeve is professional enough to overlook that little (MAJOR) fact, especially when it’s clear that Cedar doesn’t remember her at all. Great. 

Things are distant and cordial until Maeve finds out that not only does Cedar remember her, but she’s been thinking about that night too. A LOT. The two are determined to keep everything above board, but will they be able to resist each other when they’re together all the time? Or will they give in to temptation and potentially ruin everything they’ve both worked so hard for?

Book Review: Right of First Refusal (Radleigh University #2) by Dahlia Adler

On the lacrosse field, Cait Johannssen gets what she wants. Off the field is another story. Because what she wants is the school’s hot new basketball student-coach, Lawrence Mason, who also happens to be the guy who broke her heart in sports camp two years earlier.

But it’s Cait’s new roommate who’s got him.

Cait and Mase agree it’s best to keep their past a secret, but she doesn’t expect him to completely ignore their history…or how much it’ll hurt when he does. So when a friend on the basketball team asks her to pose as his girlfriend for a night, Cait can’t turn down the opportunity for distraction. (Okay, and a little spite.) But what starts as an evening of fun turns into a fake relationship with more lies than the usually drama-free Cait can handle, and it’s only keeping her from the one truth that’s nagged at her for years: Why did Mase cut her out of his life to begin with?

And is it really too late to get him back?

Books That Got Me Into Reading

The other day I was watching Booktube videos and saw that one of the challenges in their read-a-thons was to read one of the books that got them into reading. Thus, this post came into fruition. There’ll definitely be books you’ve heard of in this post, but there are some strange ones that I read when I was younger and loved for some reason.
