The Honey-Don't List - ARC Review

Carey Douglas has worked for home remodeling and design gurus Melissa and Rusty Tripp for nearly a decade. A country girl at heart, Carey started in their first store at sixteen, and—more than anyone would suspect—has helped them build an empire. With a new show and a book about to launch, the Tripps are on the verge of superstardom. There’s only one problem: America’s favorite couple can’t stand each other.

James McCann, MIT graduate and engineering genius, was originally hired as a structural engineer, but the job isn’t all he thought it’d be. The last straw? Both he and Carey must go on book tour with the Tripps and keep the wheels from falling off the proverbial bus.

Unfortunately, neither of them is in any position to quit. Carey needs health insurance, and James has been promised the role of a lifetime if he can just keep the couple on track for a few more weeks. While road-tripping with the Tripps up the West Coast, Carey and James vow to work together to keep their bosses’ secrets hidden, and their own jobs secure. But if they stop playing along—and start playing for keeps—they may have the chance to build something beautiful together…

Book Breakdown

*I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review*

Guys. Guys! GUYS!!! This is my favorite book but this duo yet! It's funny, sweet, and even had a moment where I teared up because of how everything went down. Plus, the heroine shares my name, how could I not love her? I also liked James even though he's not my 'normal' type of book boyfriend.

The writing is great as always, flows fast and makes you never want to put the book down. It's also cool that interview/book snippets/twitter stuff are in the book. That's a cool little bit that usually made me laugh and smile but also kept me wondering... just what the heck is going on? I won't go into spoilers so I'll leave that there. You'll see when you read.

This is so much better than Twice in a Blue Moon which I know some people didn't like but I did like. There are sex scenes in here but they're glossed over pretty quickly. I'm just glad it was there, if I read an adult romance, I expect adult content. Otherwise, I'd just read a YA or something.

The tension is strong with this one. Not the sexual tension but between the couple that our MCs have to babysit. You just never know what is going to happen next.

I do have two small nitpicks... parts of the ending just kind of didn't work for me. When things are starting to wrap up with the couple that Carey has spent ten years with... I just wanted more personally. Other than that, I loved this novel so much! It's so cute!

(Pride) Book Review - Sagittarius Saves Libra

True love is on the horizon, Sagittarius. It’s a good time to step out of your routine and into the unknown. Jason Lyall wants someone to come home to, someone he can be his most ridiculous self with. Someone who loves him regardless. But no matter how hard he tries, he can never quite make that connection, and now his last girlfriend has moved on—she’s engaged. So when his identical twin begs him to swap lives for a few weeks, Jason can see the appeal. Suddenly he’s living another life in a tiny Australian town, contending with weird, wild, and wonderful things the likes of which he’s never encountered before. Like spiders. Like snakes. Like his new neighbour, Sergeant Owen Stirling, who is all kinds of . . . suspicious. Prepare to be caught in a merry mix-up, Libra. It’s a dance of side-stepping and seduction. Book Breakdown I did not know this was coming! When I woke up on June 1st and saw an email from Amazon saying the author dropped a new book in this series... I lost it! I hones

Music Monday - Recent Plays

This fun meme is hosted over at Always Me   I listened to a lot of music over this past week because I've been on fall break. It's been pretty good minus all the tornadoes and bad weather, but today the high was only around 70! That's amazing for this part of Oklahoma.  The music I've been vibing to is darker sounding songs since it's so close to Halloween! This year my partner and I are gonna crave pumpkins that always and then I'm gonna go with a friend on a train ride. She said she's done it before and it's fun. I'm hoping she'd right!  But for now, to the songs! Sooooooo what did you think? Let me know below and have a great week! Stay safe, wear a mask, and happy reading!
