Review of Neat by Kandi Steiner

By Kandi Steiner

“You’re interesting, Logan Becker.”

I was so over the moon excited for the next installation in this series! The Becker brothers are so easy to love, and Mallory Scooter took the words right out of my mouth when she said that Logan Becker was interesting. 

“ ‘You made me Greek food.’
I grabbed the back of my neck. ‘You said it’s your favorite.’
‘Once,’ she reminded me. ‘Like…in a passing comment. I can't believe you remembered that.’
‘I listen to you,’ I said on a shrug. ‘And I have a pretty good memory.’ ”

Ohhhhhmygawdddd Logan-freaking-Becker. I could write a thesis on why all men should read this book and take notes. Let’s start with the fact that he is an avid reader. ‘Kay, boys, start there. But in all seriousness, Logan is the epitome of a good man. He works his ass off, he loves his momma more than life itself, his passions are far-reaching, and he knows exactly how to treat a woman. Case and point in the above quote, the man LISTENS and acts on the information he learns. 

Watching (yeah yeah, I know reading, but if you’re not visualizing you’re doing it wrong) Logan Becker fall head over heels in love is a masterpiece, and it’s only fitting that Mallory is quite literally the artist in this story. Forbidden romance is always a steamy trope, but the reason these two families hate one another goes beyond a petty rivalry.

Review of Say You Still Love Me by KA Tucker

Say You Still Love Me
By KA Tucker

“Favorite place in the world. Favorite summer. Favorite girl.”

My anticipation for literally anything KA writes is always through the roof. I’ve been hooked since the day I discovered TTB and then binge read everything she’s ever published. So, you can imagine my excitement when I was FINALLY approved for an ARC of Say You Still Love Me.

SYSLM is told in dual timelines: one in the past at Camp Wawa, and one in the present as adults. The second I opened this book and saw that it was the bad-boy, rich-girl summer camp story I was hyped. Kyle was the summer camp dreamboat, and Piper didn’t want to be there.
That changed quickly.

“So…Shane is going home next Saturday, for the night.” Kyle pulls his bottom lip between his teeth and holds it a moment before releasing it, a shy smile touching his lips. “I’ll have my cabin to myself for the night. In case you wanted to hang out there with me.”
My stomach flutters as I grasp what he’s really asking.
“For a few hours…or the night.”

Review of Coming Up Roses by Staci Hart

Coming Up Roses
By Staci Hart

I loved every corner of that store, every flower, every petal, every stem. I loved the greenhouse. I loved Mrs. Bennet. I loved creating, and I loved making something beautiful.
I didn’t hate anything at all.
Except for Luke Fucking Bennet.

I am always overjoyed when Staci announces a new novel, and the second I saw the cover of Coming Up Roses I knew Staci was going to give this novel an inside that matched the beautiful outside. Being honest, I think the only Hart novels I haven’t read are the books in the Austen series. So, I wasn’t as familiar with the connection to the previous series—BUT I didn’t need to be familiar in order to fully understand and enjoy this novel.

And enjoy it I did. I want to start this review by expressing how insanely impressed I am by the amount of research that Staci must have done for CUR. I mean, this could have literally been written by a florist. I was googling flowers and imagining all the beautiful creations. For a written medium, it was so fucking visual.

Tell me that’s not incredible.
