Enemies make the worst neighbors, but the best lovers

After losing her job, her home, and her friends in her divorce, Nora Pitts is determined not to make the same mistakes when she starts over in the small town of Shadow Creek, Washington. No more slaving away in the lab at the expense of her social life, and definitely no more men. Ever. But making friends in her thirties is so much harder than she anticipated. And when it comes to her gorgeous yet obnoxious neighbor, it’s a whole lot easier to make enemies.

Eli Hardin doesn’t have a lot of sympathy for his uptight neighbor, until he overhears her so-called new friends making fun of her un-datable status. Suddenly he finds himself volunteering for a date with a woman who’s been leaving angry hate-notes in his mailbox, and in way over his head. Because all it takes is one disastrous date with Nora for Eli to fall hard.

But falling for Eli isn’t something Nora’s ready for—not when he’s her complete opposite, and especially not when he turns out to be the best friend she’s made in Shadow Creek. But as her attraction and her feelings for Eli grow hotter, resisting him might just lead to heartbreak anyway.

"Siri, why am I still single?" : a super long Rebel Hard review

New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh continues her Hard Play series with a sweet, sexy romance featuring big, fat, OTT weddings, a meddling grandma, and a too-serious hero who needs to be unbuttoned...

Nayna Sharma agreed to an arranged marriage in the hope it would heal the fractures in her beloved family... only to realize too late that a traditional marriage is her personal nightmare. Panicked, she throws caution to the winds, puts on the tiniest dress she can find, and ends up in the arms of a tall, rough-edged hunk of a man who has abs of steel—and who she manages to mortally insult between one kiss and the next.

Abandoned as a child, then adopted into a loving family, Raj Sen believes in tradition, in continuity. Some might call him stiff and old-fashioned, but he knows what he wants—and it’s a life defined by rules...yet he can’t stop thinking about the infuriating and sexy woman who kissed him in the moonlight then disappeared. When his parents spring an introduction on him, the last woman he expects is her. Beautiful. Maddening. A rulebreaker in the making.

He’s all wrong for her. She’s all wrong for him. And love is about to make rebels of them both.

Okay so if you've been following my posts or tweets, then you'll probably know that Nalini Singh is a new-to-me author I've started reading early this year, and I've been a huge fan ever since. After devouring her paranormal works and loving her angels, vampires, and changelings, it's only right that I venture into her contemporary works as well.

Rebel Hard is my first, and holy shit it's SO GOOD. I basically said that about almost every Nalini book I've read so who's surprised? Not me, obviously.

The accidental governess.
After her livelihood slips through her fingers, Alexandra Mountbatten takes on an impossible post: transforming a pair of wild orphans into proper young ladies. However, the girls don’t need discipline. They need a loving home. Try telling that to their guardian, Chase Reynaud: duke’s heir in the streets and devil in the sheets. The ladies of London have tried — and failed — to make him settle down. Somehow, Alexandra must reach his heart... without risking her own.
The infamous rake.
Like any self-respecting libertine, Chase lives by one rule: no attachments. When a stubborn little governess tries to reform him, he decides to give her an education — in pleasure. That should prove he can’t be tamed. But Alexandra is more than he bargained for: clever, perceptive, passionate. She refuses to see him as a lost cause. Soon the walls around Chase’s heart are crumbling... and he’s in danger of falling, hard.

Meg Sanders enjoyed her wild night with a prince and his bodyguard—but now she’s moving on. She has enough problems without borrowing the kind of trouble Theo brings just by being who he is. But no matter how determined she is to leave that night a fond memory, she hasn’t seen the last of Theo and Galen...

Galen Mikos's life boils down to one goal. Keep Theo alive. But as long as Theo draws breath, he’s a threat to the powers that have taken over Thalania—and anyone they associate with runs the risk of becoming a target, too. Galen will never forgive himself if they let their selfish desire for Meg puts her in danger. But it might already be too late...

Theo Fitzcharles might be an exiled prince, but he doesn’t intend to stay that way. He’s only concerned with one thing—clearing his mother’s name and reinstating himself as Crown Prince of Thalania. There’s no room in that plan for distraction, especially when it makes him forget himself the way Meg does. But after spending one perfect night with her and his best friend, Theo has no intention of leaving her alone.

Even if it damns all three of them in the process.

Hi everyone!

It's a new Wednesday and as usual I'm here to share with you another one of my anticipated titles.

Fireworks by Sarina Bowen finally has a cover!

Hey guys!

Nick posted the new cover for Samantha Young's On Dublin Street yesterday, have you seen it? It's the cutest thing ever! I really loved the old cover because it captured the sensuality of the story, but I've always loved good illustrated covers and I adore this new one too. Would be fun to have that one in paperback.

Anyway I have another cover reveal for you, this time for Sarina Bowen's new installment in the True North series. Are you ready?

When A Grumpy Autistic Heroine Meets A Soft Hero: A Girl Like You by Talia Hibbert

Rating: ★★

A Girl Like You was our first book club read. I was so eager that this book got selected as I had heard nothing but praise for Talia Hibbert's books in the romance community. Though I wasn't as impressed by this read as everybody else who has read this read, it has certainly got me interested in reading more from the author.

Let me begin by talking about what I enjoyed in A Girl Like You. I found the characters to be extremely well-written. In Ruth Kabbah, we have somewhat of an unconventional romance heroine and I found that to be so refreshing. She was on the autism spectrum, was cranky a lot, and liked to be left to her own devices in her apartment. Her career as a comic book artist certainly allowed her to thrive in those personality traits of hers. Ruth also was somewhat of a social pariah and had a reputation for being the town Jezebel. I found Ruth's character to be endearing even when she was acting all grumpy. You guys know how often I read books about grumpy heroes, so it was super refreshing to read about a grumpy heroine instead. When Evan, a retired soldier, enters her life as her next-door neighbor, Ruth's whole life turns upside down. Evan was another character I liked in A Girl Like You. He was such a sweet and gentlemanly guy - totally 100% a soft boy! He was patient, kind and just so compassionate with Ruth. It made my heart melt to watch him try his best to understand her and just be there for her.
