Crescent Hill by Jackie Wang

Sometimes life calls for a sweet, feel-good romance novel. Crescent Hill fits the bill perfectly. Overall, it's warm and entertaining. It has some wonderful characters and a decent dose of real-life emotions, like doubt and jealousy, without going to extremes.

Only there is so much more going on. It begins with Eden, a broken, creepy girl who can tell people what to… Continue reading Born Sinner by S.L. Jennings

That one is only in the Urban Dictionary, in case you try… Continue reading Neanderthal Seeks Human: A Smart Romance by Penny Reid
