Reading Round Up: May 1st-10th

Hello Friends! I have been struggling with writing my reviews lately which is why my round ups are taking so long to post. Im just finding it really hard to put into words how I feel about what Im reading. So some of my reviews might be short and some might not be.

Do you ever struggle with writing reviews?

The Most Beautiful Girl in Cuba by Chanel Cleeton – 4.5 Stars Link to my full review. I really enjoyed this one! But so far I have loved all the books I have read bu her.

Tools of Engagement by Tessa Bailey – DNF After giving book 2 in this series 2 stars I wasn’t sure about this one. I tried both the audio and the physical book but I just couldn’t get through it. So in the spirit of not getting into a slump I DNF’d it.

Make Up Break Up by Lily Menon – 3.5 Stars I have enjoyed Sandhya Menon’s YA book so I was happy to try her first adult romance. This was fun and easy to read enemies to lovers romance that takes place in the tech world with rival dating apps.

Last Guard by Nalini Singh – 4 Stars Last Guard is the fifth book in The Psy/Changeling Trinity series which is a continuation of The Psy/Changeling series. These series are some of my all time favorites, I love getting to go back to this world and revisit with my favorite characters. I find this series hard to write a review for because you need to know background and I don’t want to give spoilers away. So in this book we are following Canto Mercant who is in charge of intel for the Mercant family and Payal Rao who is the CEO of a huge corporation. Canto and Payal both had a traumatic childhood and were in an “institution” because they were considered defective Psy. After they are both released Payal gets sent back to her father and she must maintain being the perfect Psy so he doesn’t get rid of her. While Canto gets rescued and taken in by his mother’s family and even though the Psy don’t show emotions the Mercan’t always protect their family. I really enjoyed their story and what they had t overcome to be together. I especially enjoyed Canto’s relationship with the bears!! The bears are some of my favorite characters in this entire series!!

Both of the main characters are Psy and honestly thats my least favorite pairings to read about because Psy are usually emotionless but Canto was not and I loved him so much! The Mercant’s are such a great family to read about. This series is one that you would need to read in order as the overall story arc encompasses all the books and then each book centers on one couple. Thank you Berkley for my gifted copy for review.
