This week, I'm sharing a couple of clean contemporary romance novels with you. One is a fairytale retelling. The other throws a little mystery/suspense in with the romance. Both were short books you could cozy up with for a night or weekend, even though it took me a little while to read 'The Popcorn Prince.'
Book Review: The Popcorn Prince byJohanna Evelyn
The Popcorn Prince by Johanna Evelyn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This was a good book. I was a bit dismayed by some of the circumstances but the author handled this fairly well. I liked the rich environment and the characters were fun. It's a great "cozy up on a rainy day" book. I'd recommend it to anyone who enjoys modern day fairytales and clean romance.

Wow! This might be my shortest review yet. :/ I doubt it was very helpful to the author but I hope it was encouraging for her to read it.
Book Review: Illegal Procedure (aka Protected by the Quarterback) by Christine Kersey
Illegal Procedure by Christine Kersey
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Clean romance with a hint of suspense
I'm really torn about my rating but I think 3 stars is best. I found the characters likeable enough. The setting was easy to picture from the wording.
The MCs did seem to go back and forth a long time on the trust issue. If that was such a big deal, the bulk of the story seems implausible. Another thing that kinda bothered me was how the single word 'hot' was used to describe the hero. Did the heroine really have such a limited vocabulary? She didn't seem that dull to me. And the word 'jetison' while being a fabulous word, just seemed out of place. Was the hero a fan of scifi?
I like how the story ended, though. And I have to say the fact that it was a clean read helped me get through the whole book much easier.
I'd recommend this to someone looking for a quick,clean, contemporary romance read to kill time or meet reading goals.

I did like both stories. I think I was just hoping for a bit more in each one, especially in the second one.
Thanks for taking the time to read these reviews. I sometimes wonder how many of these authors really are hiring editors because the amount of typos can be really high, even in books put out by publishing houses.
Well, technically, it's already here. I'll be spending a lot of time this month on prepping for Nano in November. You can expect my Friday posts to reflect that during the whole month.
I'm preparing another Indie Author Interview. I'm super excited as this lady is my friend and one of my writing group buddies. I hope you'll stick around to learn more about her and her writing. That's coming in November so stay tuned!
Until next time...
