Mini-Reviews Monday #10

Mini-Reviews Monday is a monthly series in which I attempt to get caught up on reviews in bulk. These reviews are a highlight reel instead of an in-depth look into my time reading these novels. If you would like an in-depth version of my review, let me know in the comments!

Addicted After All (Addicted, #3)Addicted After All by Krista & Becca Ritchie

Genres: Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Independently Published
Publication Date: October 31st 2014

Format: E-book

I am smitten with these characters. Lily and Lo have captured my heart in the best ways possible (as have the others!) and I think that this story is going to be one that I refer back to for years to come as I already do. The strength, loyalty, and bonds that Kristi and Becca have woven into this story makes this a five star just for those alone; but the true star in this entire story is the element of family and how we can chose who we call family. I can’t speak on the alcohol or sex addiction rep as I have never gone through those, but I would like to point out that this book/series deals heavily with these concepts as both our main characters struggle with these addictions. 

Bet Me to StayBet Me To Stay by Candace Havens

Genres: Contemporary Romance, Erotica
Publisher: Entangled Publishing
Publication Date: July 9th 2019
Source: Publisher
Format: e-ARC
Rating: DNF 
DNF @ 48%
I was intrigued by this from the moment I started this novel, however as I got further into it I felt like nothing progressed. The main characters never developed and the plot didn’t really move forward. I didn’t feel like there was any chemistry between Cassie and Liam which made it increasingly hard to connect and get invested in their story. I honestly, got really annoyed with our main heroine which was a big reason for why I decided to DNF, as she constantly repeated the same dialogue over and over–both in and out of the bedroom. Another large reason for my DNF was also due to how much the sex felt forced; everything was super rushed and crammed into these small amount of pages, it felt like the author wanted these scenes to be super dirty and steamy so badly that it felt like they were trying to hard to be and thus they…weren’t.

Some Kind of Perfect (Calloway Sisters, #4.5; Addicted, #3.5)Some Kind of Perfect by Krista & Becca Ritchie

Genres: Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Independently Published
Publication Date: May 20th 2016

Format: Ebook

This is a prime example of what I say when I tell people “I am so hooked on these characters that if they had a book about getting milk I would read the crap out of it.”
This is that book.
An extended epilogue of sorts, fans of the series get a look at the years after the series ended. Purely character driven and told in multiple POV’s, the story gives us fans a chance to have one last looks at our favorite character–and I’m not even mad. When I say that every year since my first read of this series I gobble this book up–I’m not joking. With every re-read of this series, I fall harder for these characters and their lives and devour the story like it was the first time. I don’t even have words anymore to describe just how much I love this series and this novel. 10/10 would recommend.
