    Whoa. That's so surprising that Beverly Jenkins' books have so few ratings on Goodreads.

    so many good recs!!! ๐Ÿ˜ the low ratings on Ms Bev are a CRIME!!! though i think about this a lot, i feel like historical romances in general might have slightly distorted ratings because I feel like a huge part of the audience might be slightly older readers who don't really have goodreads?

    Hey, Riley! Another great video with book recs I'll soon be devouring. I definitely agree about Tangled Vows and I liked Birthday Girl so I'm stoked to read a book that's similar to it. I hope this isn't too intrusive but I was wondering what happened to From Blood and Ash? I'm scared that you dnf'd it but I'm honestly hoping that you're doing a video for the first and second book because you liked it. Have a great day!

    Omg yes! I did a video like this a couple of weeks ago and raved about Katrina Jackson. Office hours and private eye are amazing. I just read Beautiful and Dirty this morning and it was SO GOOD. But I agree her covers might be deterring potential readers ๐Ÿ˜ญ

    I love the books Because of Him by Terri E Laine -1,142 Ratings, and Lover by Marni Mann 1,715 Raitings. I also think Terri Anne Browning is so underated as an author…less than 1000 ratings

    I've never heard of these books! I really love how unique your recommendations are, in many recommendation videos I've seen people include very popular books which I've already read ๐Ÿ˜… Also, your makeup always looks gorgeous, I'd love to see your makeup routine in one of your vlogs ๐Ÿ’•

    Birth control in romance is basically take the effectiveness % and switch it to failure.

    And Nikki Sloaneโ€™s The Rivalry stand-alone and Blindfold Club series are HOT.

    I already read a lot of these books and feel the same way.

    I think you would like Stay with me from Nicole Fiorina. It's so good, it's dark romance and the writing style โค

    an interesting video concept: ranking romance covers based on aesthetics or how well they convey the topics of the book. came from seeing the cover of The Rakess, because their positions and expressions really convey the heroine as the top and the hero as the bottom ๐Ÿ‘€ or dom/sub if you will. anyways off to start reading like every single one of these books thanks Riley ๐Ÿ˜‚

    Is โ€œSacrificeโ€ poly?

  38. Christine Andersen

    Can't wait to read all of these! Every time you mention Rafe I really want to read it! Maybe I'll make it a priority in April ๐Ÿ˜

    I picked up Go Deep. I'll be reading it this weekend. Fingers crossed I'll like. ๐Ÿคž Thank you for putting the light on these authors. I'll definitely be checking them out. BookTube has a big impact on reading community. And some authors need to be talked about and be given their deserved appreciation. So thank you for this video.

    My jaw literally dropped when you talked about how few ratings Beverly Jenkins books have.

  43. Thany's Thoughts

    July 6, 2021 at 6:47 pm

    It is absolutely a crime that Beverly Jenkins doesn't have higher ratings, because she's amazing. Recently read Forbidden, Rebel, and Wild Rain, and I'm obsessed. They are SO good.

  44. Reetta Raitanen

    July 6, 2021 at 6:47 pm

    Pretty much all of these books were already on my TBR thanks to you. This was a great reminder. And after this video, I will also rate and review the books. I'm bad at that and will do better in the future.

  45. Kelly Ann Aynes

    July 6, 2021 at 6:47 pm

    Have you read..Hellishly Ever After?…. a 12yr old as a joke held a seance and trapped a demon into marriage. 13 years later he comes for her to fulfill that Covenant. OMG!!! YOU NEED TO READ THIS!!!!
