In a nutshell…

  • April is our technical specialist.
  • Kcee is our graphic teaser master.
  • Jellie is our expert in producing moving visual multimedia teasers/book trailers.
  • Sheryl is our reviewer wordsmith.

April is a teacher by day and contemporary romance reader by night. She loves reading books under the romance genre with HEA. She reviews new adult, adult, and contemporary romances usually revolving around small-town billionaires, military romances and romantic comedies. She prefers not to read books with too much cheating, M/M, F/F, menage, incest and BDSM. She makes edits/graphic teasers sometimes, too. Her favorite authors include Kennedy Ryan, Emma Chase, Mina V. Esguerra, Marian Tee, Jill Shalvis, J. Daniels, A. M. Johnson, Lauren Layne, Melissa Foster, Melanie Harlow, Leisa Rayven and Tessa Bailey to name a few.

Jellie is a hermit by choice, introvert by nature. Loves to express her creativity through video making of her favorite books. A hopeless romantic who is always after happily-ever-afters, including hers. She loves to go through every dark corners of alpha males, angels and vampires’ minds. Loves to read stories that will keep her at the edge of her seat as well as love stories that will make her laugh out loud. Her dream came true when she became a character of a book. Her Favorite Authors are Susan Elizabeth Philips, Judith MacNaught, Kristan Higgings, A.M Johnson, Pepper Winters, Aleatha Romig, Tarryn Fisher, J.L Drake and A. Wilding Wells.

Kcee is a work from home teacher and frustrated graphic designer. She has a thing for love stories that touch her heart, pique her interest and give her a good laugh. She usually reads new adult and contemporary romance. A bibliophile and an introvert since she’s 3, she used to read her favorite fairy tales in her closet. She still loves her fairy tales and HEAs; she just prefers them dirty this time *wink*. After reading, she loves making colorful teasers of the books she really enjoyed. Her one-click authors include Penelope Ward, Vi Keeland, J. Daniels, Emma Chase, Lauren Rowe, Jay Mclean and Elle Kennedy.

Sheryl works like a money maniac in an infrastructure company while half of her brain floats around stories of love. She could have been a mermaid in her previous life, half human, half fish, living in a different world full of heroes and heroines to and from work. Her favorite go-to genres when she’s feeling under the weather include romantic comedy, sports romance, contemporary, young adult and new adult. Believe it or not, she would like to one day explore and read male to male romance novels. Authors she stalks constantly? Colleen Hoover, Amy Harmon, Emma Chase, Elle Kennedy, Kristen Callihan, and Sara Ney. Finally, a mom to two rowdy boys! Mermaid right?
