What I read: June 2019

What did I read during June? Here you go…

Million Dollar Devil (Million Dollar, #1)Million Dollar Devil by Katy Evans

Somehow, I *think* this was my first Katy Evans read! A fun, slow burn romance with a reverse My Fair Lady storyline.
TrustTrust by Kylie Scott

Great mature YA dealing with the aftermath of gun violence and drug use, yet it doesn't stay heavy throughout. This is one I wished I'd read sooner.
Written with Regret (The Regret Duet, #1)Written with Regret by Aly Martinez

That ending!
This story hit checked every single mark on my "what I love in a read" list. Characters I can sympathize with regardless of their actions, a hero I can love, a well-rounded plot, side characters who add to the story, moments of laughter and tears. All the feels.
Written with You (The Regret Duet, #2)Written with You by Aly Martinez

I could not wait to dive into Written with You after that crazy plot twist/cliffhanger ending in book one. This one didn't disappoint at all. This is a duet I will happily reread.
Tell Me To StayTell Me To Stay by Willow Winters

This is a novella that feels like a novella. A longer story would serve the plot and these characters better, but it is an entertaining bedtime read.
On the RocksOn the Rocks by Kandi Steiner

I totally forgot to write any notes on this one but I read the entire book in one day. I think that says enough...
Flow (Grip, #0.5)Flow by Kennedy Ryan

This is a prequel with an ocean's worth of depth. Typically, prequels tend to offer us but a small glimpse into the character's story before their "main" novel. Flow isn't like that. This story is heavy with political and race-related conversations that build up the characters of Bris and Grip and give a good insight into a few side characters that I imagine take up more room in the future.

I walk away from Flow knowing who these characters were and look forward to seeing who they are in eight years when the conclusion to their story picks up.
Grip (Grip, #1)Grip by Kennedy Ryan

Once again Kennedy uses her platform for good. Love that Grip and Bristol's story tackles the reality of everyday life for POC. This is a romance with meat.
