These last few books have me rethinking my opinions on tropes. I have not really enjoyed rockstar romances, but I am a sucker for a Pretty Woman retelling. My one major issue was that Jewel deserved a better grovel.

Series: Once Upon a Rockstar
CW: Prostitution, Multiple Partners (Opening Scene); Death of a Parent; Grief;
Books like this make me happy I have rediscovered historical romance.
Series: The Somerton Scandals
After reading the Clarkson series, I thought I would try this older Tessa Bailey book; it was no Clarkson.
Series: Broke and Beautiful
TW: Drug use, Mental Illness, Death of a Parent, Suicide
I used only to read HR, but have moved to Contemporary mostly. This book might have brought back an HR kick. Added a demi-sexual (my take on him, at least) hero, and I was all in.
Series: The Montgomerys and Amrstrongs
TW: Threats of rape & sexual harassment; Forced marriage; Blood depiction; Loss of hearing in an accident recounted; Death of a parent; Kidnapping
I loved this fling turned work romance so much, relatable characters, steam for days and wine.
