This is book #5 in Sarina Bowen’s True North series and can be read as a standalone. For better understanding of the characters and more nuance obviously reading the rest of the books is good but I don’t feel that you’d be lost at all with this one, which I’m sure is intentional on the author’s part.

Right away let me say how much I am in love with this cover! The lighting on it is breathtaking and highlights the couple so beautifully. It also give a vague vibe of the setting very well – which is London in a Cirque du Soleil type show. Which is something Parker does so well, create incredibly unique settings that I don’t read much and I really appreciate that! Continue reading “Book Review: Making Up by Lucy Parker”

This book has an amazing synopsis and set up. I mean the title says it all – Grumpy Fake Boyfriend! I was really all in before I even got to the book. I love grumpy heroes, as long as they are jackasses. And fake boyfriends? Also in! And here the fake boyfriend is the brother’s best friend! It’s like romance trope heaven…and there were a lot of really great aspects to this book. But I didn’t feel like it all came together in the end.

This book has so many things going for it but unfortunately just didn’t work for me over all.
The good: I enjoy triad books and ultimately that’s what this book is. Three people navigating relationships. I really liked Joshua’s character and the setting of a play which was a lot of fun.
The not-so-good: What I couldn’t get around was Nate’s cavalier attitude of how he’s treated people he dated in the past. While it wasn’t exactly cheating because they weren’t in committed relationships it was in this gray area and Nate seems to not care at all about their feelings about that.
I also didn’t particularly love some of the way Nate came to terms with being bisexual. It came off as being homophobic – by the end there was a clear evolution, but it wasn’t great at first. Although, that may have been the point. While I am clearly not a straight man, gay man, or bisexual man, the way Nate treated his previous partners and the people around him just did not work for me.

I am in love with this cover! I completely read a book based on a cover and this one called to me so loudly. Those colors pop beautifully and I can imagine in a bookstore they would do so even more. I’m a huge Sonali Dev fan from her first book, which I’ve talked about a ton here, so I was excited to see a Bollywood YA book like this. I’m so happy to say this book completely lived up to what I wanted. Continue reading “Book Review: My So-Called Bollywood Life by Nisha Sharma”
