Review: Pretending He’s Mine by Mia Sosa

Pretending he's mine

Amazon | Goodreads

This is my first Mia Sosa book and it won’t be my last. I’ll preface this by saying I bought the first book as soon as I finished this one and I’m excited to read the sequel.

I found the story itself really engaging and enjoyable. We follow Ashley and Julian in the age old trope (that is oh so good) around the older siblings Best Friend. Years of pent up sexual tension come bubbling to a head as Ashley crashes at Julians house AND they have a pretend relationship. I was sold on the premise almost immediately.

Pretending He’s Mine is well written but lacks in some of the things I generally look for in romance. There is to much in the other characters heads for my taste. We read a lot about both Julian and Ashley fantasizing about each other instead of seeing them take action. Much less the fact it took a long time for them to really act anything out.

The positives of this book are more than the negatives though. I loved how the family dynamics were handled and how much growth we saw with the characters. They had relatively healthy family relationships and the drama of the entire book was pretty minor. I liked that it felt more real and not as unrealistic issues we often read about in contemporaries. Also the conflict and resolution happened pretty quickly. I did have my yelling at the book moment when Ashley and Julian hit their main conflict, but we got to see them fix their problems like adults.

Overall I enjoyed my time with these characters and left interested enough to buy the first book and want to read book 3. This really is the epitome of a solid 3 star read for me. I liked it but that’s about it. Perfect palette cleanser too after a heavy read!

If it sounds up your alley be sure to pick it up!

Review: Sanctuary (Beards and Bondage #2) by Rebekah Weatherspoon

I’m going to open my first official review on this by telling you I love Rebekah Weatherspoon’s writing ahead of time. I first discovered her through the fit trilogy (which I need to finish what is wrong with me). I’ve been a fan of her writing since then especially since she writes such different stories from what you may expect in a ‘traditional’ contemporary romance.
