Magan - Thanks, Rachel! 🙂 I’m so glad you enjoyed the playlist too! (Music twins, per usual!) I think the *biggest* downfall is that it’s a series. I’m SO terrible at keeping up with them, especially if it feels like the story could have been told in one book. Thanks for the comment + for stopping by. xo

Magan - Alexa, if you give it a shot, I look forward to hearing what you think! 🙂

Alexa S. - I do enjoy books that feature characters that are passionate about music. While I’m still on the fence about Exile (especially considering the last part of your review), I’m glad that the musical aspect in it is pretty strong 🙂

Rachel - This book sounds really good! Or, at least something I would like. I’m sorry you found it to be lacking depth in some places :/ That’s always a not-awesome feeling. I also had no clue that this was part of a series. That makes me nervous to read it just because I NEVER keep up with series.

Also, your playlist is A++++, Magan!

Asheley Tart (@BookwormAsheley) - I’ve been wondering about this book! I’ve never actually read an adult romance book before (that I can remember) and I’m trying to figure out where is a good place to start. I like the way you outlined with bullets (lists are a language I understand, you see). I just opened another internet window while I was typing out this comment to check and see if my library has this one in and it’s checked out right now but I added it to my wishlist so they’ll keep up with it for me so I won’t forget about it.

(The thing about some of these adult contemp romance books is that the authors are so prolific I’m a bit overwhelmed when I look at all of the books they’ve written. I want to start reading some but I’m like WHOA there are too many books here and my eyes are way confused. haha)

Thanks, E!

VeganYANerds - RBR is back 😀 HOORAY!

This sounds good and it’s the first I’ve heard of it, I’ll definitely be on the look out for it 🙂

Alexa Y. - I’m so glad you liked this one! It’s also on my list of books to read from Netgalley, and I think I might start it soon, as I’m in dire need of a change from my YA reads. I do like that there appears to be a large cast of characters – bodes well for the future of the series.
