Review Roundup – November 29th to December 6th, 2020

On my way to 100, I read some short, but mostly good, books.

This week, I I tried to finish up my personal reading challenge of 100 books before the end of the year. I only got to 98, but that just means I can take a little bit of time with the last two.

Sebastian Dalkeith by Jasmine Carter

My rating: 2 of 5 stars


Rachel Edwards had a very disappointing life, and Sebastian Dalkieth should have been able to make that better. Except, they keep lying to each other. Can these two hearts find the truth of it all?

You see that trash summary? That’s how I feel about this book. Don’t get me wrong; I definitely finished it, but a few more edits would have been a blessing here.

Rachel’s naivety toward her stepsister was stupid, especially considering how Sofia was the reason Rachel was kicked out of her father’s house. Sebastian’s decision to keep lying was just trash, and Rachel’s decision to leave him after he exposed her family business in front of a bunch of strangers was valid. He was wrong, and the novel didn’t spend enough time talking about that.

I will say that I’m happy I gave this novel a shot, because at least I know It’s not something I want to continue. I love a mindless romance just as much as everyone else, but I love good editing more.

Through the Woods by Olivia Gaines

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Quick and Cute

Jazzy Allen told Justin Wolfe that she’d marry him one day, and he almost didn’t believe her. Now, twenty years later, they’ve found themselves meeting again on the side of a mountain, and Justin thinks it’s time to take Jazzy up on her offer.

I am a sucker for childhood loves and quick romances. I do not have time to wait. While I admit that some small mistakes made it through – and a great editor would have fixed the cracks – I found the story to be enjoyable still.

I recommend this one to anyone who loves something quick and cute.

Walking the Dawg by Olivia Gaines

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Very Sexy

Kieran Dunagan has the terror of the neighborhood in his dog, Buster, but Linda Blaine isn’t scared of them at all. Even the worst neighbors can become the greatest loves.

I enjoyed this one. Linda was definitely a little crazy, but Kieran needed to come out of his shell and try. The chemistry was awesome, and the buildup to the sex was definitely worth it.

The only thing I didn’t like about this book was that a third of it was previews for other books, and I hate that. Still, it was a novella, so I can’t be too mad.

The Life of the Party by Olivia Gaines

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


Renelda was coming down from a high that left her really low. Skylar realized that his plot of revenge left the girl of his dreams in a pit of despair. Somehow the two find strength in each other.

I like these novellas, but considering how Gaines is great for Instalove and Happily Ever Afters, I wish that this was a longer book.

The plot was not as linear as I would have liked it, and the transition into flashback was not as smooth, but I definitely enjoyed it. Skylar was too hot for both mine and Renee’s blood, but we were both here for it.

Fever by Milana Jacks

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Got What I Came For

Leah Jenkins has a Hordesman at her door, and she’s not quite ready to let him in. Still, the one known as Fever doesn’t have time to wait.

I like Milana Jacks. She writes good smut, and I can’t say I’m not here for it. I may never read the whole series, but the ones I do I definitely enjoy.

All things considered, it was a solid story. Not to many mistakes, a linear plot, and I can’t say that there were any plot holes. Four stars simply for good editing.

Dreikx by Milana Jacks

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I loved it

Dreikx is methodical and very logical, but absolutely out of his death when he marries Princess Tamey.

Listen I loved this lil book, and wish it had gone on a bit longer. I love the stoic man falling in love with a ball of sunshine. It feeds my soul.

I am now officially on board with this series in that I will definitely be reading the next one.
