Hello my fellow bookworms!
I realized I had all of these books left to review and not a lot of year left to review them. So instead of writing three full-length review, I figured I do a little multi-review and combine three awesome romance book reviews into one mashup review! Also, this is my 100th review on this blog! *throws confetti* So why not celebrate with three reviews in one?! Okay, I'll stop with the celebratory intro and let's move on to some fabulous love story reviews:
A Rogue of One's Own by Evie Dunmore
The second installment of Evie Dunmore's A League of Extraordinary Women follows a women's suffragist and her long-time nemesis as they battle for power and love. This book had a very slow start and I think that’s what’s leading me to rate this book a little lower. I loved how both Tristan and Lucie held true to their values and beliefs, but the slow burn romance was a little too slow; however, it picks up about midway through the book and then the ending is great! I appreciated the emphasis placed on the suffrage movement and how there are letters and examples of what women had to deal with during the 1860s while under their husbands rule. While I liked this book, I think I just liked Bringing Down the Duke better.
Rating: ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
Meet Cute Club by Jack Harbon
When Rex, two constantly teases Jordan for reading "books for grandmas," joins Jordan's book club and offers to help him revitalize it, Jordan realizes that maybe he might be guilty of judging this book by its cover. This novel was super funny and a quick and easy read! The best way I can describe this book is The Bromance Book Club meets Beach Read with gay protagonists? I love how Harbon emphasizes the reasons why so many people love romance books and how people like Jordan find comfort in them. Overall, just a super cute love story!

Take a Hint, Dani Brown by Talia Hibbert
This friends-to-lovers, fake-dating romance is the second book in Hibbert's The Brown Sisters Series. This book is the perfect mix of slow burn, steamy scenes, self discovery, and witty banter! Zaf and Dani are completely different, yet are so compatible and it makes this novel that much more enjoyable to read about. The way Hibbert showcases different cultures and diverse characters is refreshing! She also does a wonderful job of highlighting deeper issues like anxiety, depression, grief, and self-worth. Both Zaf and Dani have their own demons and it is only through their friendship and fake dating that they learn to rely on one another and try to work through their respective issues. While this novel could be read as standalone, I highly recommend reading Get a Life, Chloe Brown to just further fall in love with Hibbert’s style of writing and the fabulous Brown Sisters!
