🍞πŸ₯°πŸ“š Make A Scene by Mimi Grace | BOOK REVIEW πŸžπŸ₯°πŸ“š

Hey XO Gang, welcome back to my blog. If you’re new here on my blog hi I’m Shabria thank you for stopping by. I write about beauty, books, and affordable lifestyle content, if those topics interested you I hope you stick around by following my blog for more blog posts in the future.

I have another book review for you and I recently finish reading Make A Scene by Mimi Grace. I’m so happy that I got read both books by Mimi Grace this year and both of them were on my TBR (to be read) list, so if you haven’t read Along for the Ride and Make A Scene please do so if you enjoy reading romance books with a guaranteed HEA πŸ₯°.

Okay, this book is about a young woman named Retta who was dumped by her ex boyfriend who’s now getting married to her cousin Irene. In the beginning, Retta wasn’t planning on going to the wedding but eventually, she changed her mind. So, Retta who’s freaking out she awkwardly makes an bizarre offer to Duncan who works next door as a boxing owner to be her fake boyfriend for her cousin’s wedding. But while they’re getting to know each other, Retta and Duncan couldn’t control themselves and they share kisses and steamy embrace. I definitely recommend this book, there’s a few sexual/adult content and strong language for mature readers. My rating: 5/5 stars & steamy level: 5/5 stars as well πŸ₯°

Hey XO Gang, welcome back to my blog. If you’re new here hi I’m Shabria and welcome to my blog. I write about beauty, books, and affordable lifestyle on my blog if those topics interested you I hope you stick around by following my blog for more posts from me in the future. And, to my dear one readers thank you so much for your continuous support. So, I’m trying to get caught up with my book reviews posts here I do post my book reviews on my Instagram but on there I make them pretty short and sweet. But, on here on my blog I write full book reviews without any spoilers.

So, I got the time to read Along for the Ride by Mimi Grace and I’m really glad that I did, it was available in ebook format in my local library on Overdrive. Okay, so this book is about the main characters named Jolene Baxter and Jason Akana who helped out Nicole (Jolene’s sister) and Ty (Jason’s best friend) moved their belongings and along the way, started off not being too fond of each other and then, they started to have feelings for each other and later on having a ‘friends with benefits’ type of situation. I thought that this book was cute and funny and I did fall in love with the characters very much. I will say that this book does have strong adult and sexual content, so if you’re not old or mature enough or comfortable I’m just letting letting know. I really did enjoyed reading this book and I give this book 5/5 stars ⭐️ and the steamy level 4/5 stars ⭐️.
