Mini Reviews | Dishing up Love, The Rivals and Until Talon

The books I reviewed in this post are all adult romances.

Dishing Up Love by K.D. Robichaux

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

Very sweet and very cute. Even though I appreciate how much I learned about New Orleans, there was too much information for me. Don’t get me wrong, everything was very interesting (and kind of creepy actually) but I just think that not all of the stories included were completely necessary. The romance, on the other hand, was good and very entertaining. The story might be considered to be a bit rushed, but it’s a short book with insta-love so I expected that. I didn’t know this was a spinoff of a previous novel of the author, so I might read that as well.

The Rivals by Vi Keeland

Rating: 4 out of 5.

I really like Vi Keeland’s romances and this one might be one of my favorites. It is a rivals/enemies to lovers story in a working environment (with a tiny bit of Romeo and Juliet vibes). The characters were very funny and their arguments incredibly entertaining (definitely one of the best parts about this story). I also really enjoyed their relationships with their families and how they were able to be successful in spite of the lack of support. Furthermore, I loved Weston’s journey and how much he grew as a person, as well as Sophia’s strength and drive. I definitely recommend this novel if you’re interested.

Until Talon by Aurora Rose Reynolds

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

As expected, this book made me very happy. This novel was much less problematic than others because the author decided to do something new (which I really enjoyed). This time around, the main characters weren’t the ones directly involved in the dramatic storyline. It was as if we were reading from the secondary characters’ point of view. With this I mean that Cece’s storyline was the baseline for this book and everything that happened revolved around her and her situation. Even though Until Talon is definitely not one of my favorites in this collection, I really enjoyed it and had a smile on my face the entire time I was reading it.
