Reviews I enjoyed reading!

Note: I haven’t read many of these books. I’m simply sharing my fellow bloggers’ reviews. I hope you find some book recommendations from these!

Living with Regret (Rain #3) by Lisa De Jong

Living With Regret by Lisa De Jong — 4 suns
Reviewed by Sarlene from Waves of Fiction

“The When It Rains series was both captivating and emotional, which was perfect for my current reading mood. Great series that included a cast I won’t soon forget.”

The Finish by Jade Eby

The Finish by Jade Eby — Phenomenal Read!
Reviewed by Jen from Schmexy Girl Book Blog

“This isn’t a story wrapped up in shiny paper with a pretty bow. It is real. It is raw. It makes you feel so many emotions. Jade wrote an incredible story that will stay with me for a long time. I can’t wait to see what she has in store for us. Phenomenal read!!”

The Book of Ivy

The Book of Ivy by Amy Engel — 5 stars & “pretty damn perfect”
Reviewed by Ashley from Nosegraze

“The Book of Ivy isn’t just another “bleh” dystopian. It’s REALLY GOOD. It also has a sweet, hesitant, slow burning romance. The ending will have you desperately clawing for more. I think I cried a little when I realized I’d have to wait until November 2015 to get more.”

Addicted to You by Krista and Becca Ritchie

Addicted to You by Krista and Becca Ritchie — 4.5 stars
Reviewed by Lisa from Lost in Literature

“This story was so unique and like nothing else I’ve ever read. I was instantly draw into their story, tapping my Kindle at the speed of lighting, flipping those pages so quickly. I can even admit that as I finished this book, I immediately purchased Ricochet. I just had to know that I had book 1.5 ready for me as soon as I could fit it into my reading schedule.”

Bad Romeo by Leisa Rayven

Bad Romeo by Leisa Rayven — 5 stars
Reviewed by Head Stuck in a Book

“From the very first page I was enthralled, Bad Romeo is new adult contemporary romance at its best: the bad boy, a virginal good girl, an extremely enjoyable story and the inevitable plotline of any new adult book featuring a main character with a hurdle to overcome before the hero and heroine can find their happily ever afters.”

The Librarian Principle by Helena Hunting

The Librarian Principle by Helena Hunting — 4 stars
Reviewed by Cezanne from BCS Book Reviews

“One of the things I loved about this book was that the characters were in their late twenties/early thirties and they had the own lives and careers. It was a refreshing change from what I’ve read lately. The sexual tension and chemistry between these two was scorching hot. The banter among the characters was so much fun to read.”

After I Do by Taylor Jenkins Reid

After I Do by Taylor Jenkins Reid — 5 stars
Reviewed by Autumn from The Autumn Review

“Don’t get me wrong, there are some fantastic books out there, but this one just hit me on such a personal level. Plus, the writing was amazing. I felt like I was talking to a girlfriend throughout the whole book.”

Leo by Mia Sheridan

Leo by Mia Sheridan — 4.5 stars
Reviewed by Dawn from Up All Night Book Blog

“Each and every time I read a Mia Sheridan book, I walk away feeling like I just received a gift. Truly magical. Her stories are always about a unique kind of love. They are also inspirational with depth and meaning. They make your heart full and your spirit soar. Each one of her books has very special characters.”

Echoes of Scotland Street by Samantha Young

Echoes from Scotland Street by Samantha Young
Reviewed by Ellen from Always YA at Heart

“We’ve seen Cole as he grows up in each of the novels, and I’ve been so excited for him to finally get his story and find his own happily ever after. In fact, he’s turned into one sexy beast, and I just loved him and everything about him in this installment.”
