    Contemporary Romance Favorites Project: Hate to Want You, Rock Hard, and A Duke by Default

    Contemporary ARC Reviews: The Decoy Girlfriend, A Merry Little Meet Cute, and Lovelight Farms

And overall, I got to read some really great books this month. Personally, this month was… wild. Very wild. Lots of good things, including but not limited to, TAYLOR SWIFT IS […]
