I’m pretty sure My Reckless Valentine was written just for me. I mean, the main character’s name is Angie and she loves Romance novels, particularly Erotic Romance. She’s a librarian, which would probably be the perfect job for me. And she likes nerdy guys! Grant creates spreadsheets for everything! Anyway. Angie and Grant have a hilarious chance meeting which ends with mind blowing sex. But the next day they find out that he is her new boss, so no more hanky panky. Especially since Angie’s job is already on the line for her questionable book displays and library activities.

The library is one of my favorite places, so of course I was excited to discover a Romance series set there! Broken Resolutions follows Penny, a shy librarian who has sworn off men for a year, and Jack, a bestselling author trying to avoid the limelight. Penny’s library is hosting a New Year’s Eve single’s night, which she’s tricked into hosting and participating in. While the fun and games are quite embarrassing, she and Jack do seem to hit it off. Which is great since they get snowed in together after the party.
The only reason that I read The Shack was because a random stranger gave it to me. I know that he’ll never know if I read it or not, but I would feel bad if I didn’t. I was hoping that it would surprise me, since it’s not something that I would have picked up on my own. Sadly, I found it completely ridiculous, boring, and at the end, predictable. Four years ago, Mack’s youngest daughter was kidnapped. Her body was never recovered, so she was presumed dead. Now a strange note appears in his mail box asking Mack to meet “Papa” at the shack where his daughter was likely killed. Is it a cruel joke, or is God really wanting to meet him?
Intimate Betrayal had way too much going on. Reese is a journalist and her latest assignment is to get an interview with Maxwell Knight.

But Reese also starts getting severe headaches and nightmares about her past. Soon it becomes clear to both of them that something links them together, but someone doesn’t want them finding out.
The Diabolical Baron is a double romance! Jason Kincaid needs to get married and produce an heir. He really has no interest in it, but then he makes a bet with a friend.

But familial duty comes first, and she finds herself engaged to Jason, whose presence she finds quite overwhelming. However, while visiting his home with her aunt, Caroline and Jason find themselves falling in love. Just not with each other.
Unfortunately, Heart of the Falcon uses my least favorite Romance trope: Oops, I’m pregnant! I was excited to get to know Daniel Falcon more, and it sounded like it was going to be a sweet and steamy friend’s little sister Romance. It just let me down though. Daniel and Madelyn run into each other when she’s trying to escape the rain. There’s an immediate chemistry between them, but Daniel has rules about hooking up with friends’ family. But they can’t keep their hands off of each other and one thing leads to another.
As soon as I saw the title and cover for Every Body Yoga, I knew I had to read it. In the mean time, I looked up Jessamyn’s website, then soon got lost in a sea of YouTube videos of her. She is amazing! As a fellow fat, black, queer Instagram yogini, I was simply in awe of her. This book is part memoir and part beginner’s guide to yoga, complete with a few yoga sequences to get you started.
