These ‘about me’ sections, or even sections that inform you about blogs, have never been my forte. Much to my chagrin, I was never taught the unwritten rules of what you are supposed to say. The links at the side of the blog – Twitter and Goodreads, for example – are liable to tell you more than I could ever say in words.

Mostly, this will be a book blog. I read a lot, and I love to share my views on my most recent reads. I try to read a little bit of everything, but if you look closely you’ll notice I will occasionally become obsessed with one specific genre for a short period of time. Old books, new books, yet to be released books – I read them all. If you’re an author looking for advance readers or just wish for more reviews of a book you’ve already released, please feel free to contact me. There is a contact form at the side of my blog – if you scroll down below the Twitter and Goodreads sidebar you will find it – so drop me a message and I’ll be sure to get back to you in double time. After all, finding new authors is what makes the book world go around.

Thanks for taking your time to read this. With a little bit of luck, you will find my blog much more interesting than this mundane introductory section.

Review: Like a Boss

Like a Boss Like a Boss by Lili Valente
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Like a Boss was my first time reading Lili Valente and Sylvia Pierce and I’ll certainly be reading more of both authors in the future. They work so well together, and I’m interested in seeing how they work alone – I’m sure the results will be just as wonderful.

I’ll be completely honest, I expected a standard office romance from Like a Boss. Fortunately, my misinterpretation was quickly put right. Sure, this is an office romance, but it also more. It is a brother’s best friend romance, too. It is an insight into the world as it currently is. It also has a lot of other unexpected goodies to be found throughout. Overall, this one offered so much more than the standard office romance I had been expecting to read – I adored it, and I was addicted.

I do feel as though there could have been a bit more depth behind the romance, though. I enjoyed watching the relationship between the two characters grow, I enjoyed watching the scenes that played out, but the warm and fuzzy feelings never quite reached the level I had been hoping for. I enjoyed them, but I would have enjoyed this book even more had the feels been kicked up a further notch.

As a whole, this was a lot of fun. I’ll certainly be keeping an eye on the authors in the future.
