The Kiss Quotient RECOMMENDED: The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang is $2.99! I’m jealous of those who get to read this for the first time. We had a wonderful guest squee of this and it was my favorite read of 2018: I truly loved this book. Loved. It made me feel like a champagne bubble – all fizzy and light. When I think of all the magical feelings romance gives its readers, I will forever think of this book. A heartwarming and refreshing debut novel that proves one thing: there’s not enough data in the world to predict what will make your heart tick. Stella Lane thinks math is the only thing that unites the universe. She comes up with algorithms to predict customer purchases–a job that has given her more money than she knows what to do with, and way less experience in the dating department than the average thirty-year-old. It doesn’t help that Stella has Asperger’s and French kissing reminds her of a shark getting its teeth cleaned by pilot fish. Her conclusion: she needs lots of practice–with a professional. Which is why she hires escort Michael Phan. The Vietnamese and Swedish stunner can’t afford to turn down Stella’s offer, and…

C Matzah Ball Surprise by Laura Brown March 16, 2020 · Entangled: Love Struck Contemporary RomanceRomance Content Warning Content warning: Sexism, fatphobia, misogyny, emotional abuse. There are also mentions of food in the book and my review. This book knocked me sideways with its charm, but nuts and bolts were falling apart for me from the second half. By the end I was infuriated with how some things were mishandled and other fucked up things were shoehorned in. A lot of what’s good about this book was really good, but the things that didn’t work for me downgraded my experience a lot. Matzah Ball Surprise is about Gaby and Levi who both have Passover blues for different reasons. Gaby is constantly pressured to have a boyfriend by her family. Her mom blames Gaby for being dumped by her toxic and emotionally abusive ex-boyfriend, and even encourages Gaby to get back together with him. Levi is having boundary issues with his ex because she wants them to continue pretending to still be engaged so her father will lend her the money she needs to start her business. Levi hates lying, especially to his family, and reenacting the Loving Couple skit for…

C If I Never Met You by Mhairi McFarlane March 24, 2020 · William Morrow Paperbacks Contemporary RomanceHumorRomance If I Never Met You is a sweet, but very angsty, fake-relationship romance that is let down terribly by its advertising and blurb: If faking love is this easy… how do you know when it’s real? When her partner of over a decade suddenly ends things, Laurie is left reeling—not only because they work at the same law firm and she has to see him every day. Her once perfect life is in shambles and the thought of dating again in the age of Tinder is nothing short of horrifying. When news of her ex’s pregnant girlfriend hits the office grapevine, taking the humiliation lying down is not an option. Then a chance encounter in a broken-down elevator with the office playboy opens up a new possibility. Jamie Carter doesn’t believe in love, but he needs a respectable, steady girlfriend to impress their bosses. Laurie wants a hot new man to give the rumor mill something else to talk about. It’s the perfect proposition: a fauxmance played out on social media, with strategically staged photographs and a specific end date in mind….
