News from Kini: I finished Second Chance Season by Liora Blake. It was cute and sexy and with the perfect for me amount of angst. She definitely planted seeds for a next book and I’m hoping to see how that couple develops.
I finished The Spire by Kate Canterbary and it made get all emotional. That hardly ever happens when I’m listening on audio. But she got me with that one. After I finished that book, I went straight into the previous book in the series, The Cornerstone. It was good, but very similar structure to The Spire so it had less impact on me.
As of this writing, I just checked my library for Magic Bites aka Kate Daniels #1 and it is available so it looks like I’ll be testing out the paranormal waters this week.
I’m about halfway through the Rogue Desire anthology. I’m enjoying the stories so far. Review to come in the near future.
After that I am really looking forward to reading The Awkward Path to Getting Lucky by Summer Heacock. I believe this is her debut book.
News from Mandi: I enjoyed Twice as Hard by Amber Bardan – SUPER dirty fun. It will be the Smex Scene Sunday feature tomorrow so I will talk about it more then. Please note that there are some consent issues in the beginning but it will get explained and it makes it all better. (trying not to spoil!)
I wanted Clone Me a Lover by Rosalie Redd to be crazy sci-fi fun but it needed more world building and the romance went from zero to “I love you” too fast and didn’t make sense. It will be part of our August Mini Review.
This weekend I start Illegal Contact by Santino Hassell
