This week I managed to finish five books. Three physical books; one for review. Two e-books; one being a re-read.
Always with Love(Billy & Me #2) by Giovanna Fletcher ****
Just like Billy and Me, Always with Love is utterly sweet and charming. I was so happy to know that we were getting more of Sophie and Billy's story. Yea, I didn't love it as much as Billy and Me, I still thoroughly enjoyed it. Sophie and Billy spend quite a bit of the book apart. Being on different continents is hard. Both characters are equally frustrated. Which sucks. So well Sophie and Billy's relationship had its highs and lows, Sophie had a lot of time to really figure out what she wanted aside from Billy. So I saw Always with Love as more of a book focused on Sophie as an individual. Her hopes and dreams were more prominent. I do have to say that I was a little miffed that from 400 pages Billy and Sophie are only together about a quarter of that. Definitely less than half. I know. I know, Sophie being happy with herself is more important and the key to being happy with Billy. But c'mon, gimmie the romance! I do hope we get one final novella though. The last ten pages were so rushed. All discussions and conflicts between Sophie and Billy were left until then and I'm not sure it completely satisfied me. I think a novella of a certain event would do wonders to really wrap up their story. Overall, I love Fletcher's books and Always with Love didn't disappoint.

Dearest Clementine(Dearest #1) by Lex Martin ****.4(re-read)
Still just as good the second time. I love Clementine(and Gavin).
Finding Dandelion(Dearest #2) by Lex Martin ***
This is a story that's been told a billion and one times. And yea, romance is known to not be on the super creative side, but after finding Dearest Clementine refreshing a pure charm, Finding Dandelion just didn't come close to giving me those Clementine feels. Really that falls on the two leads shoulders. Dani, I liked for the most part. But she's also easily forgettable as in she's nothing different. Jax, on the other hand, is a clueless rich asshole. I understand growing up the way he did can leave its mark. But whatever, that doesn't negate his less than charming ways. And the sad part is that Dani would let them slide. Jax was always forgiven(until the obvious blow up). So well I had issues with Dani and Jax, the book is still readable and for the most part enjoyable.
What did you guys read this week?
