Winter's Orbit by Everina Maxwell: I listened to the audiobook and didn't love the narration, but otherwise, I really enjoyed this sci-fi romance with it's arranged marriage trope and political intrigue. The main characters were both wonderful, and I loved watching them grow individually and together. Fingers crossed there will be more in this world and of these characters.
Lost and Bound by Eliot Grayson: I enjoyed this latest book in the Mismatched Mates series much more than the previous one. It brings Jared, presumed-dead cousin to the main characters of the first two books, back home and lets us know what really happened to him. Jared and were both a bit oblivious when it came to their relationship, but I really liked them together, and I'm looking forward to more in the series. I'd start with the first book if you're beginning the series—while each book has a different couple/romance, there's an overarching plot that keeps deepening.
Cinderella is Dead by Kaylynn Bayron: The premise of this f/f YA fantasy is that the Cinderella story is real and has been used to oppress the people of the kingdom. Sophia doesn't want to go along with what she and the other women of the kingdom are being forced into, so she runs from the ball and encounters the last descendant of Cinderella, Constance. Together, they learn what the real story of Cinderella is and set about to change things. (And how gorgeous is that cover?!)
The Wolf Moon Rising series by Sam Burns and WM Fawkes: I binged through the currently published books in this series pretty fast, and I'm no experiencing that phenomenon in which I can't really separate which is which in my mind! I'm really enjoying this shifter series about a wolf pack dealing with a mysterious illness that has been sickening some wolves for the last twenty years or so. Each book is about a different couple, but the overall plot carries over through the series, so start at the beginning with this one. I will sit here and wait for the next book to see what it brings.
The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid: I've seen a lot of reviews describe this book as light beach reading about the glamour of old Hollywood, but I feel like it's much more than that. Evelyn is a bisexual Cuban woman who reinvents herself and does whatever she has to from the time she's a teenager to become a Hollywood star. She tells the story of the seven men she married and the woman she loved and considered her wife to a journalist she handpicked for reasons that are only revealed at the end of the book. My favorite part was the found family she created with Harry, a producer and gay man who became her best friend.
