Hello Stranger by Lisa Kleypas

Rating: 3 out of 5.

This is the 4th book in The Ravenels series by Lisa Klepas and I did not like this book at first. It got better but I almost put it down. I hated that our MC was named Garrett. It’s such a small thing but as I listened to the audiobook I had to keep reminding myself that Garrett was a girl and that annoyed me. I also really didn’t like Garrett. She goes on and on about how she is independent and how she doesn’t need a man to make her whole but then a chapter later she is talking about marrying a man who hasn’t mention anything about marriage. In fact he tells her that she will never see him again. And she’s sitting in her room thinking about marriage. I just didn’t like her character.

Ethan well.. I honestly don’t have many thoughts on him. I will give him props for never lying to Garrett. He straight up told her his life was in peril and she wouldn’t see him again.. even if that ended up being a lie.. it was the truth when he said it.

The story itself was fine. yeahhhh that’s all I have. It was fine. Nothing spectacular but it was good and it entertained me.

I want West’s story. OMG I want it now. I am head over heels in love with that man. I am so excited to get his story!

Love and Other Scandals by Caroline Linden

This is the first awesome book I have read in awhile. I LOVED the characters. Joan was me. She was so relatable. She had her flaws but she learned accept them instead of whining about them. She was funny, smart and bold. She was juts all around fantastic. And lord have mercy, Tristan. He is my new favorite HR hero. I am beyond in love with him. I loved how they formed a relationship. It wasn’t just out of the blue. It was a kind of hate to friends to love. I loved it!

I have kind of been in a weird reading slump. I have the romance package through audible so I have been trying out all kinds of new authors and a lot of them just don’t work for me. I haven’t ever read anything by this author but I will be reading more soon! I loved how she wrote her characters and this story!

So I Married a Sorcerer by Kerrelyn Sparks

So it was good.. I don’t know though.. it just wasn’t great. It felt extremely long to me. I honestly think I would have liked it a whole lot more if I would have listened to the audiobook. The story was almost too happy and perfect. That makes no sense. Brigitta is this sweet, caring, beautiful girl whose family happened to be a bunch of dicks. Of course she had no clue what they did because she was sent away. But a bunch of crap happens and she finds out that she’s a princess and then she is kidnapped by the scariest pirate in the seas… who just happens to also be kind of a sweetheart oh and he’s seeking revenge for what Brigitta’s family did to his. Yes, it gets confusing. I honestly don’t really know what he originally planned to do with her.. he wanted to take her to her asshole brother for ransom? But I don’t really understand why. But whatever. They obviously fall in love because they are both just so dang sweet and then there’s a competition for Brigitta when she gets back home.

Honestly I am too lazy to give a real review right now.. and this all makes sense in my head but it’s just not coming together on paper. So yeah I’m done. It was a good book! Just way too freaking long!
