News from Tori: ONLY THREE DAYS OF SCHOOL LEFT!! HALLELUJAH AND PASS THE WINE!! This week has been ho-hum in terms of reading though I have much goodness on my TBR. I got my hands on a copy of Ilona Andrew’s Wildfire and devoured it. A fabulous end to the trilogy through the Andrews leave enough open to revisit if they choose.
When It’s Real by Erin Watt-An amusing and cute romance involving a teenager heartthrob who fake dates a young woman in order to clean up his act. Reminded me a little of Torres’ Hollywood Dirt. Same premise though not the same energy. Enjoyable though it was almost 1/2 way through before the story finds it’s groove. Review to come.
Blood Guard by Megan Erickson-Not bad for first in a series. A sexy PNR with an interesting world and storyline though I wish the world building and character development had been stronger. Both stall at a certain point. Looking forward to the next in the series which looks to be about the hero’s brother.
All I Am by Jodi Ellen Malpas is a HAWT HAWT HAWT novella from the A This Man series that reveals us Drew’s story against a dark and erotic background. I love it’s an older hero with a kid, includes a bromance, and a kinky bent. It also introduces us to the heroine of the following full-length novel-The Forbidden. Reviews to come.
Right now I’m reading Sarah Robinson’s Nudes and enjoying. So far so good. :)
News from Kini: Going Nowhere Fast by Kati Wilde– I finished this last weekend. I liked it a lot but didn’t love it as much as Mandi did. I couldn’t move on from the money issue and why Aspen agreed to go on the trip with Bram. The tension was great and the sex was dirty. Just that one thing held me back from loving it.
Dating-ish by Penny Reid– If you’ve read any of Reid’s books, this is pretty typical of her style. Everyone is super smart and kind of weird. I really enjoyed this book. As a single woman of a certain age, some of the issues Marie faced with dating felt incredibly realistic to me. It was a sweet and slightly sad love story, with a HEA of course.
Right now I am reading Buns by Alice Clayton. The previous book was so-so for me, I’m 30% in and liking Archie and Clara so far.
