Book Review!!! ~ It’s Me You’re Looking For by Elise Kenny


After escaping a horrible ex, Monica Roche is looking for a fresh start but so far, she feels invisible to people like her inarticulate and miserable co-worker, Samson Okiro. When Monica begins a month of challenges to shake things up, the first challenge is Do something unexpected. Monica decides to answer the 36 questions test with a stranger via email.

When Samson Okiro receives an anonymous email asking if he has a single friend to answer 36 questions, Samson’s first impulse is to delete it. Though, since his life has reached a bit of a standstill, on an uncharacteristic whim, he decides to write back.

With neither knowing who’s on the other end of the emails, they can be new people. Yet as the emails fly, Samson and Monica begin talking in real life, but only time will tell if their email aliases can ever match up to what’s standing in front of them, or if neither of them will be able to take a chance on love again.

Romance Book Review ~ Let Love In by Marie Soleil


There is one person on this earth I cannot stand: Ethan Taylor.

Sure, he looks like he belongs on the cover of a magazine, but don’t let his looks fool you. He is pretentious, arrogant, and self-absorbed. Unfortunately, he is also the son of a reality TV star, and designers who won’t even glance at my portfolio are on his speed dial.

But now he has a proposition for me: If I join him in New York City and pose as his date to his grandmother’s swanky benefit, he’ll take me to Fashion Week and introduce me to the hottest names in fashion. As an aspiring designer, I’d have to be crazy to turn him down.

Except that means spending a week with Ethan. Pretending to date him. His hand pressed to my low back. His sweet grandmother fawning over me, imagining our future together.

If only my heart didn’t race a little every time he came near me, this would be a piece of cake.

Let’s just hope I can remember all the reasons why I hate him…and keep myself from falling for him instead.

Let Love In is an enemies-to-lovers, sweet romantic comedy that keeps the romance closed-door. It’s book three in The Canyon Cove Love Stories but can be read as a standalone.

I really enjoyed this enemies to lovers romance. Thea is a no-nonsense girl who is done with charming rich men like Ethan flipping Taylor, it’s just too bad that Ethan has his sights set on the budding fashion designer.

One ill-fated attempt to capture her attention and he’s forever branded just like all the rest. A beautiful yes, but also charming—yes—and unfortunately very egotistical rich playboy. Thea is not interested.

Nope, not at all.

But then Ethan makes a proposition she just can’t turn down, even if it means spending an entire week with Ethan flipping Taylor.

This was a fun story. The banter and sarcasm between them was so much fun as was the glimpses into Ethan’s heart and the man he was underneath the persona and the bluster and the charm. He was a caring man who did sweet things like feed pigeons with his grandmother in the park. Swoon! The more they learn about each other, the more their feelings changed but felt organic and I appreciated that.

I’m not sure I’ve ever read anything by Marie Soleil but Let Love In was a great introduction to a new-to-me author.
