After just five months of dating Janie, Quinn - former Wendell and unapologetic autocrat - is ready to propose marriage. In fact he's more than ready. If it were up to Quinn, he would efficiently propose, marry, and beget Janie with child all in the same day - thereby avoiding the drama and angst that accompanies the four stages of prematrimony: engagement; meeting the parents; bachelor/bachelorette party; and overblown, superfluous wedding day traditions.

I have such mixed feelings. I adore Penny Reid's books, but if I never hear the word "slamp" again it will be too soon. Can we just have the lovely books without slut shaming? Or shaming other romance, for that matter.

All revved up for bright lights and steamy nights, writer Veronica Chandler chased her dreams to New York City. When she hit a dead end, reality sent her back home to Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Saving her pride and her new gig - writing a relationship advice column! - requires some faking. No one can know the truth about her big-city flop or her nonexistent sex life. But the town's irresistibly rugged librarian is determined to figure her out...and give her hands-on lessons in every wicked thing she wants to know.

I loved this story, but the audio narrator used a distractingly obnoxious performance voice throughout. I also prefer when books with alternating perspectives use two narrators.

With a famous NHL player for a stepbrother, Violet Hall is well acquainted with the playboy reputation of many a hockey star. So of course she isn't interested in legendary team captain Alex Waters or his pretty, beat-up face and rock-hard six-pack abs. But when Alex inadvertently obliterates Violet's misapprehension regarding the inferior intellect of hockey players, he becomes much more than just a hot body with the face to match.

I swung between love and hate with this one. It's a funny rom com, then it is over the top. It handles consent in such a great way and shows how sexy it can be, then it slut shames incessantly. I nearly DNF'd over the nonstop puck slut comments.

A new standalone novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author, Vi Keeland. The night I met Drew Jagger, he'd just broken into my new Park Avenue office. I dialed 9-1-1 before proceeding to attack him with my fancy new Krav Maga skills. He quickly restrained me, then chuckled, finding my attempted assault amusing. Of course, my intruder had to be arrogant. Only, turned out, he wasn't an intruder at all. Drew was the rightful occupant of my new office. He'd been on vacation while his posh space was renovated.

I usually love an alpha romance, but this was almost unbearable. His crass attitude was not remotely sexy or appealing (won't take no for an answer, makes fun of ex's breasts, etc), and her best features were apparently her ability to stay skinny while eating burgers and her secretarial skills.
