Mixed Signals by B.K. Borison

If you are looking for a sweet, cinnamon roll love interest, this book is the one for you. Caleb is the greenest flag to ever exist, and one of the kindest and most supportive MMCs I’ve ever read in a romance. I loved the fake dating plot and the mutual pining. My only complaint is that the third act conflict felt kind of forced, but it was resolved in the cutest way. I think this is my second favorite Lovelight Farms book! Rating: 5 stars

All This Twisted Glory by Tahereh Mafi

This series just keeps getting better and better. Tahereh Mafi’s writing has matured from useless purple prose (i.e. Shatter Me) to something that I can only call decadent and lush. Her descriptions of setting, actions, and most of all her character’s emotions, are unlike any other. This book is painstakingly handcrafted to be as high stakes and heartbreaking as a Shakespere novel (but even better, of course). Objectively, Cyrus is the most characterized and the most tortured, down-bad love interest I have ever read about. He outshines the main character Alizeh with the detail that has been given to creating his backstory, motivations, and feelings. He is undoubtedly the most fascinating and appealing part of this series, and his blossoming romance with Alizeh is the sweetest type of torture. This was a magnificent read, through and through. Rating: 5 stars

Captive Prince: Volume Two by C.S. Pacat

This book was even better than Volume 1 for me, because Laurent became much more likable and his relationship with Damen was such a well-written slow burn. While court politics and war strategy aren’t usually my style, I was super invested in the larger plot that was filled with battle and betrayal. This is enemies to lovers in its purest form, and I can’t wait to finish the series. Rating: 5 stars

Mrs. Nash’s Ashes by Sarah Adler

I love me a good road trip romance, and this is one of the best ones I’ve read in a while. Although the main character Millie was a bit too quirky for my taste, she had really great banter with the love interest and the writing was humorous. I enjoyed the additional love story that was part of the plot as well. This story had a really interesting discussion on grief, the value of optimism, and long-lasting love. P.S.: This a perfect example of the grumpy-sunshine trop done well! Rating: 4 stars
