Charming and fun with the perfect dose humor, heart and so much happy

4hearts2 (1)

This was the first book I read by this author and I’m positively certain it won’t be my last. The Fallback by Mariah Dietz was a quick read with plenty of heartwarming and humorous moments.

I really liked the writing and the pacing of the story even if some parts were kind of slow. The plot, while a bit predictable at times, was delightful and amusing. Now, I didn’t completely fell head over heels in love with this book, but I had some amazingly good giggles, laughs, and a dorky smile stuck on my face while reading. There were a few twists that caught me off guard and that kept things really interesting. Of course there were some serious moments and I liked the emotional depth, but what I loved the most about was how Dietz was still able to keep the storyline funny, light and sweet. Sometimes, you don’t really need all that heaviness, outrageously complicated drama, and endless tears and heartache for a story to be intriguing, entertaining, and enjoyable. Not that I don’t love those cause I do… I really do, but sometimes humor and lovable characters are just what my heart needs and this book definitely had those.

The characters were well-developed and I adored them so much. I thought they were likable, interesting, and realistic. They had their own strengths and weaknesses, but overall, they were a really great cast. Brooke was relatable and I loved her determination and work ethic. Levi was charming and sweet.  But, Felicity… Felicity stole my heart hands down no questions no doubts whatsover. I absolutely loved all the scenes with her in it and was having some major best friend crush on her. She was spunky, honest, kind, supportive, and had such a good heart. Everyone needs a best friend like her. I know I’m a romance addict and I did like the romance, but I LOVED the friendship between Brooke and Felicity. Oh and Brooke’s Grammy was so adorable and Catherine surprised me in the end.

As I’ve already mentioned, I did enjoy the romance and rooted for Brooke and Levi to have their HEA. I thought their chemistry was deliciously fun and I liked the development of their relationship. However, the slow burn was just a tad bit too slow for my taste. There were some swoony flirtations, but I needed a just little more tease and spice. Maybe if Levi’s POV was included, then that might have made things more juicy and fun. I personally really love multiple POVs and I was dying to know what was going on in Levi’s head. That being said, things did eventually heat up and the ending was just too darn precious and cute.

Overall, I had fun reading this book. Charmingly predictable, funny, and adorable, The Fallback left had the perfect dose of humor, heart and so much happy. Not only was it romantic, but also inspiring, affecting, and a wonderful story about LOVE — love between family and friends, love for what you do in life, love for the person you want to spend your life with, and most importantly love for yourself.

Go check this book out. I’m sure you’ll be charmed and entertained just as I was!

I received an advance reader copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review. All thoughts, swoons, smiles, and giggles are my own.

mythoughtsDeliciously Fun, Charmingly Entertaining and Wonderfully Addictive 

5hearts2

This book was such a charmingly entertaining read! Lighthearted and fluffy, Match Me If You Can by Tiana Smith had plenty of giggles, swoons, butterflies, fun drama and all the warm fuzzies that kept me flipping through the pages.

I love heartwarming YA rom-coms and this one most definitely did not disappoint. The writing was crisp and easy to read. The plot was incredibly fun, amusing, and engaging. Although a few things were quite predictable, there were some fun twists that completely surprised me. There was never a dull moment and I always wanted to know what would happen next. The characters were realistic and likable and even if they were a bit frustrating at times, you can’t help but fall in love with them anyway. The romance was sweet and swoony. I LOVEDDDD the tension and chemistry between Logan and Mia and thought their interactions were just the cutest. This truly was an enjoyable read  and it made me feel light and just so darn happy.

Before I wrap up my review, I just want to say thanks to Tiana for giving me a new book boyfriend to swoon over. I was instantly smitten with Logan and rooted for him so hard. He’s thoughtful, honest, artistic, considerate and cute. I loved his sense of humor and his sweet sensitive side. He totally gave me the feels. Not to mention his relationship with his sister was absolutely endearing.

Deliciously fun and wonderfully addictive, Match Me If You Can was an absolute delight to read and I savored every moment until the very last page. As a debut author, Tiana Smith proved that she knows how to bring on the FEELS and she did it amazingly. She created an adorably charming, funny, and sweet story that had me glued to the pages. I’ll definitely be keeping a lookout for Smith’s future novels and cannot wait to see what she comes out with next.

If you’re looking for a fluffy feel good YA contemporary story with lovable characters and sweet romance, then this book is the perfect match for you.

I received an advance reader copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for a fair and honest review. All thoughts, swoons, giggles, and opinion are my own.
