My March reading was… not great. It wasn’t the books. It was 100% me. Well, and the COVID-19 situation. I don’t do a great job focusing on reading when I’m stressed out or anxious and, well, I’ve been that for a solid month and a half now. While I didn’t read all that many books, I did read some great ones. So, let’s talk about them.
The Rogue of Fifth Avenue by Joanna Shupe
I finally read my first Joanna Shupe book and I’m never going to be the same. There were a million little things to love about this one, but none perhaps more than the characters themselves. Mamie and Frank gave me all the swoons. Mamie made my feminist heart sing. What a strong and independent heroine! The historical NYC setting was fantastic, too.
One Fine Duke by Lenora Bell
My first Lenora Bell book! I don’t usually start mid-series, but this book has been on my TBR for ages and just happened to work for a Romanceopoly pick, too. What a delightful book. Mina and Drew gave me all the feels. Lots of laughs (the sex chair!) and swoons in this book. I loved Beatrice, too. I hope she gets her own book soon.
Undercover Bromance by Lyssa Kay Adams
After falling in love with Bromance Book Club last year I couldn’t wait for this follow-up. Mack was one of my favorite minor characters, so I couldn’t wait to get his story. Especially when I confirmed it was with Thea’s prickly sister, Liv. Their story balanced the serious (taking down her creepy ex-boss) with the giggles and swoons.
Tessa Ever After by Brighton Walsh
It’d been just about five years since I fell in love with Tessa and Jason, so I wanted to revisit them to see if the magic was still there. Was it ever. Jason is one of the most perfect book boyfriends ever created. And I don’t have words for how much I adore Tessa and her daughter, Haley. This book is perfection.
