#BookReview Love Comes for the Rock Star by Savannah Adams

Love Comes for the Rock Star is another fabulous addition to the Magnolia Grove romance series by Savannah Adams!

This series is absolutely my guilty pleasure series. I sink into these books and am whisked away into a beautiful, romantic world. I couldn’t put the book down and totally binged the whole thing, all the while making notes of the cutesy things that happened along the way!

This time around we have Rick Miller, rock star extraordinaire who just wants some time away from the spotlight, and Macy Cooper, a music teacher and conductor who just wants her students to succeed. These guys met back in vacation bible school when Rick pulled the cute little Macy’s hair and ran away – over and over and over. Flash forward twenty years, and these two soulmates bump into each other… and as it is said, the rest is history.

There are so many amazing things about this book, but let’s just settle on a few of my personal faves:

1. Star Wars themes for ringtones? YES PLEASE! My inner nerd got so thrilled! The Imperial March from Empire Strikes Back and The Darth Vader theme? Heck yes!

2. I thoroughly enjoyed thinking that Rick was strutting around like Mick Jagger on stage. That had me giggling.

3. “Smart aleckey” – I thought I was the only one to use this kind of lingo? Apparently I am not!

4. Music teacher + Rock Star = Love? It’s just too darn adorable.

5. The connections to the other stories was super sweet. Thankfully, these books can be read as a standalone. It’s more of an easter egg than a necessary evil to read the other books. You can understand these easily without any prior information.

Overall, this book was just amazing! I’m so glad I picked up another book in this series. I hope it continues so I can binge more, and I hope that many other readers come to read and love this series just as much as I do!

Five out of five stars!

Quick Book Review: Naughtier Than Nice by Eric Jerome Dickey

24611515

Naughtier than Nice was a fantastic read by Eric Jerome Dickey that is perfect for anyone wanting a soap opera feel kind of book.

This book is incredible! When I first started reading it I wasn’t sure what to expect. Is this book a romance? A drama? It’s both! This novel felt like one of the soap operas I used to watch on tv but instead in book form.

I couldn’t say there was much wrong with this novel, because it did seem like a soap opera. Something was always changing, there was always some kind of romantic action or spite between characters going on and it never seemed boring. There was times that I was quite frustrated with characters or where different plot twists seemed unreal, but if this book was aiming towards being a book soap opera than it did it’s job.

Overall, I was impressed. I would love more books like this where there is constant twists, drama and a big splash of romance!

Five out of five stars!

Book Review: EXPECTING A BOLTON BABY by SARAH M. ANDERSON

Book Review
Book Title: Expecting a Bolton Baby
Book Author: Sarah M. Anderson

Introduction: I was craving some ooey, gooey Harlequin styled romance so I decidedĀ  this book should fit the bill! I also got it from a random garage sale (I know, I know…buy the books from the garage sale don’t benefit the author,so the least I could do was review and get the word out about it).

Review:

Normally, I love ooey, gooey, super romance-y type books but for whatever reason I wasn’t into this book. Now, hear me out, this book was SUPER AWESOME and it definitely fits the bill of being an amazing Harlequin romance, but personally it just wasn’t hitting the notes. Perhaps I thought I wanted to read a romance and I actually needed a different genre, but it just wasn’t doing it for me.

All that being said, this book was really good in the romance genre – my distaste for it wasn’t because of the book itself, I think I just needed a genre change.

So, remove my negative thoughts from the equation and here’s my thoughts:

This is a nice book to read when you don’t want some heavy, crime/psychological/horror type novel. It’s a smooth read, it moves quickly and it’s packed tight with romance. It’s over flowing with a beautiful narrative and sappy lines, which can make every romance fan drool with excitement.

Expecting a Bolton Baby is apart of a series, but I didn’t have any issue picking up on what happened in the first. It won’t leave you confused or lost, but the first book would help connect a few more dots. It can be treated like a standalone for any romance readers who simply need a sappy book to pick up.

Character growth and development was great in this novel as well. I’m not usually expecting much development during a Harlequin romance, but it was there for the picking!! Great job Sarah!!

This book might not seem to be the most realistic novel in the entire world, but it does fit the Happily Ever After sort of build I like to see in novels. I really enjoyed that aspect where it wasn’t depressing and sad for the entire novel – it left me feeling warm and fuzzy. This little slice of life book is great to pick up those winter blues!!

Overall, this was a good book! I might not have been feeling the romance genre, but it was a sweet read! I would definitely suggest anyone who’s a fan of romance or needs a break from reality to pick up this beautiful book!

Three out of five stars!
