Mini reviews for 3 of my recent romance reads!
I’ve talked about this in a few posts, but it’s a goal of mine this year to review every single book I read (so far so good!). But I don’t necessarily want to write a full length review, so some are just short and sweet.
I wanted to find a way to share some of those here so I decided to do some mini reviews when I finish 3 books in a genre!
I really loved this sequel to The Simple Wild!! I was nervous going into this because I absolutely loved how the first book ended and I wasn’t sure where this would go. But I loved these characters and world so much that I knew I had to give this a read!
I don’t think this romance will be for everyone. Since the couple is already together, this book lacks the romantic tension of will-they-won’t-they. However, I really appreciated the peak into the struggles of maintaining a lasting relationship.
I loved watching Calla and Jonah navigate the difficulties of starting a new relationship and balancing their own dreams with the necessary sacrifices for each other. It’s something a lot of people will be able to relate to (although there’s no way in hell I’d like in remote Alaska for anyone 😅)
Overall I flew through this audiobook – which is fantasticallynarrated by the way – in two sittings because I wanted as much time as possible with these characters.
It looks like there’s going to be a novella coming later this year and I’m already itching to get my hands on it!!
This book just further solidified Kandi Steiner as one of my all-time favorite romance authors. Kandi has an amazing ability to balance the sweet, romantic moments with heavy, heartbreaking topics. This entire book felt alive and real, like I could walk right into this vacation town. All of the characters were so realistic and flawed and I was wholly attached to each of them.
Wren’s character was so strong and raw. And even though I’ve never experienced anything like what she was going through, I felt her emotions so viscerally. And her chemistry with Anderson was absolutely fantastic. I couldn’t help but root for them!
I listened to this on audio and finished the entire thing in 2 sittings because I never wanted to put this down. I was hooked from the very beginning, itching to uncover their secrets and watch the romance unfold. This was sweet and heartfelt and had me swooning the whole way through. I can’t get enough of Kandi Steiner’s books and I’m sad that I’m almost caught up with her backlist!
This F/F romance was one of the sweetest and SOFTEST things I’ve ever read. Not only did this have amazingrepresentation, but I loved that the author didn’t shy away from using labels on page. I feel like so often it’s hinted at, but this book was full of explicit labels, and we stan.
I loved the tenderness and support both women showed each other. This book was really short but did an amazing job showing what it’s like to enter into a new relationship and learn to trust that person.
The only reason this didn’t get a higher rating is because I personally love my romances angsty. I thrive on the tension and slow burn. This was the total opposite of that! So if you’re in the market for a soft, sweet romance that’s not sexually explicit, this is your book! Read it, your heart will melt.
