    I read 35 pages and highlighted 9 things I did not like, including other women being trashed multiple times, insensitive references to disability and disordered eating - this book is not my jam. Maybe it gets better but I?m not going to read any further. So there won?t be a formal ...

    I read Evelyn Lozada's The Perfect Date on a whim, basically as a romantic palate cleanser. The plot was banal, the love interest was an ass sometimes, and the whole mystery aspect didn't make a lot of sense. But overall, it's a fast read. ...

    This was a fast paced contemporary romance. I appreciated that the subject matter was a mixture of both light and humorous and more serious. I found the formatting to be a little difficult to follow as there were no scene breaks between the two POVs. Hopefully, that was only becaus...

    Thank you St. Martin's Press for providing an ARC in exchange for an honest review. I buddy read this with the lovely Azrah and we're both frustrated. Definitely check out her review! :) Well...that was disappointing. Don't let the cover deceive you it's gonna be a fluffy and cut...

    I have recently been into sports romances and I am always up for a fake girlfriend story. Unfortunately this book didn?t work for me. I didn?t connect with either of the characters or buy into their romances. I?m disappointed because this sounded like it was going to be a really ...

    Thank you to the publishers and Netgalley for this digital ARC in exchange for an honest review. Skip this book! I really thought I would like this story but as I read on, the star rating went lower and lower. I was going to settle on at least two stars because this book offers a good...

    Single mother. Hard worker. The chance to make things a little easier. A little better. I am a sucker for a single, unwed young mother getting her chance, making something of herself and improving the life of herself and her son. I was even more happy to see that it was a piece that sh...

    What the fuck. My eyes are bleeding. I'm back to my naive teenage years thinking guys who are mean and treat you like shit are soooo swoonworthy. Seriously. I once had half my calf bitten off by a dog and it wasn't as painful as reading this book smh ...

    I have made a mistake y'all. There is no one to blame but myself. I did this. I decided to read this book. I decided to go into it expecting a cute, contemporary romance, thinking that I would enjoy it. But, alas, it was not. And I did not. But, there's not much to be done about...

    I really wanted to be in love with this book. Sadly, that did not happen. But I did read every part of it, so let me tell you what I thought was the most important thing: THE WRITING WAS GREAT. It flowed really well, it was so easy to read, but at the same time it felt elevated throug...

    Thanks to Netgalley and St. Martin's Press for a digital galley in exchange for an honest review. There are usually two veins in any story that draws me in as a reader. First, strong characterization and second, situations that evoke a ballroom of emotions that connect me with the...

    I'm going to blame myself for this one since I went into The Perfect Date with the expectations of enjoying a cute and fun contemporary romance. I wasn't prepared for the drama and cattiness that I read instead and it made the book less than enjoyable for me. I don't even feel like...

    1.5 stars I?m not sure what I just read but it didn?t live up to the blurb or the sweetness of that cover, the two things that drew me in to requesting this ARC. I am going to keep this short as I don?t have a lot to say that isn?t critical. The story and characters were a h...

    I was a little dubious going into this book. The cover is adorable and the synopsis makes the book sound so good. But I read a few reviews before starting and to say they were mixed would be generous. Still, I received this book in exchange for a fair review, so I was prepared to be op...

    I got about halfway through this book before I just couldn't anymore. Things started out well enough, I thought that the heroine's attitude would cool off for me, or that I'd at least understand where the attitude came from. I thought I'd warm up to her, being a struggling single mothe...

    I don't think I've ever given a book a rating this low. I love romances with baseball/football/sports components, but this was not something I would recommend. Y'all, it was bad. BAD. ...

    This is a fake to real romance but with lots of mean attitudes and behaviour. Angel Gomez may have become a single Mum whilst only sixteen years old but she's determined to do the best for herself and, more importantly, for her son. She's studying to become a nurse, currently on pla...

    Please note that I received this book via NetGalley. This did not affect my rating or review. Good lord. I have never read a book in recent memory that was pretty much panned by all of the readers who posted reviews for it. I wish I had looked at Goodreads before applying for this b...

    I was super excited to read The Perfect Date by Evelyn Lozada. I mean look at that cover! Super cute :). Unfortunately, this wasn't the best romantic read. I feel like this book was more of a drama than a rom-com? I also wasn't a fan of Duke or Angel. Angel has a serious temper ...

    Edited to add: This book was an ARC provided in return for an honest and fair review. This book surprised me because it was both a traditional romance and a surprisingly real depiction of what life is like among people with a lot of money. (For those looking for a sweet romance, kno...

    I feel like I was fooled into believing this would be a contemporary romance. It wasn't. It was a drama show. Angel is a single mother on her way to getting her nursing certification. Duke is a baseball star whose career is on the line. In the blurb ?sparks? are mentioned be...
