News from Tori: I picked up Melanie Harlow’s Some Sort of Crazy and fell in love with this adorable besties to loves romance. Psychics, sex blogs, spankings, dirty talk, and lots of baked goods made this a super fun read. A standalone though part of the Happy Crazy Love trilogy.
Rough Ride by Kristen Ashley is a Chaos MC novella and part of the 1001 Dark Nights series. Not bad though I was more invested in revisiting with some old friends and discovering all the clues Ashley was dropping about what’s to come then in the romance. Ashley leaves off on a major cliffy which may irritate some readers.
I’m currently reading Honky Tonk Hellion by Z.A. Maxfield. Though this is labeled as the start to a new series, I’m seeing it would really help if you read the series this is spinning off of. I’m hoping to also finally get to read Mister McHottie by Pippa Grant this weekend.
News from Kini: I started the new one by L.H. Cosway, A Crack in Everything. When it starts they are teenagers and I just don’t enjoy reading about teens. I didn’t even get very far in the book and decided it wasn’t for me.
Stiff Competition by Micah Persell– The hero is a gigolo and the heroine is a creator of computer games. I like it, but it has taken me all week to get through. I hope to finish it tonight.
I finished the audio version of The Last Black Unicorn by Tiffany Haddish. I highly recommend this. It’s funny and sad. She is brutally honest about her life. It was uncomfortable at times. But it is her story and it’s wonderful.
And now on audio, I am listening to The Almost Sisters by Joshilyn Jackson. The heroine draws comics and there is a bit of a story within the story about her comic characters. Of course, there is family drama and secrets and I pretty much love listening to her narrations.
This weekend I hope to finally start A Princess in Theory by Alyssa Cole, pubs 2/27.
