Audiobook Reviews: Deeper & Harder by Robin York

by Robin York Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance Source: Audiobook Series Review I can’t even express how surprised I am by these two audiobooks. I was not expecting to love them so much. The author hit an out of the park homerun with these two characters (Caroline and West) that she created, and her writing was excellent. So impressed! “I want you, and I don’t know how to stop wanting you. I want to get deep inside you, and then deeper, until I’m so deep I don’t even know what’s me anymore and what’s you.” If you follow my reviews and the books I read, then you may have noticed I very rarely read college new adult romances anymore.

Review + Giveaway: The Wall of Winnipeg and Me by Mariana Zapata

The Wall of Winnipeg and Me by Mariana Zapata on February 28, 2016 Buy on Amazon Goodreads Genres: Contemporary, Romance Source: ebook Pages: 473 Vanessa Mazur knows she’s doing the right thing. She shouldn’t feel bad for quitting. Being an assistant/housekeeper/fairy godmother to the top defensive end in the National Football Organization was always supposed to be temporary.
