My to-be-read list is out of control, y’all. Totally, completely, out of control. So, since I tend to review just about everything I read for the site, I thought I should check and see what YOU wanted to see me review. So, here’s the top choices on my TBR list right now. If you want to vote for the book you most want to see reviewed on the site, it’d be a win-win for both of us. Please and thanks.
Age gap romance is a pretty divisive trope in Romancelandia. For me, it all depends on the author. A great author can create age gap romance that I adore. In the hands of the wrong author...well, it can all fall to crap pretty quickly.

We’re living in strange, scary times. Now more than ever, we need great books to comfort us. And while we’ve made our likes and dislikes super clear over the years, we never really gave our readers a voice until now. We asked our loyal friends on Facebook what they wanted to see more—and less—of in their romance novels this year. Their answers might surprise you. (Authors, take note!)

Writing romance is hard. But for some reason, TV and movie screenwriters seem to think it’s a piece of cake. It’s that overconfidence that makes them screw up so many great ‘ships. Here are some prime examples of writers who should’ve had romance authors in the room before they completely wrecked their characters’ love lives for good.
