News from Mandi: Almost done Worked Up by Tessa Bailey – I’m looooving. The hero is a factory mechanic – heroine is an illustrator. It’s so dirty and hot. The hero is kinda cave-manish and I’m eating him up. Look for a dirty quote filled post tomorrow.
News From Tori: The Sight by Chloe Neill–The 2nd installment of Neill’s New Orleans urban fantasy sets us right back into the world. The romance advances and there is a resolvable conflict that develops alongside the ongoing arc. A satisfactory continuation that entertains though I felt the world building and character development was placid. Review to come.
Worked Up by Tessa Bailey–The latest installment from Bailey’s Made in Jersey series is a sweet, sexy, erotic, laugh out loud marriage of convenience between two committment phobes whose attraction gets them all worked up. I had so much fun reading this book, Bailey certainly set the book boyfriend bar high with her latest hero, Duke.
Close To You by Kristen Proby–The 2nd installment in her Fusion series. This friends to lovers romance contemporary left me unsatisfied with it’s light and fluffy low key storyline. Review to come.
Wild Things by Jennifer Ashley –Currently still free on AMZ this novella takes place right before White Tiger. A sweet and sexy PNR that introduces Broderick’s brother Mason to his mate. A few subplots are resolved and we are formally introduced to the shifter healer-Zander.
Quarterback’s Secret Baby by Imani King– Secret babies and sport stars are my latest crack. I picked this up on a whim (and for the $.99 cost) and enjoyed for the most part. Instalove, class differences, beta heroes, and surprise babies are the core and King delivers a very sweet and cozy story with plenty of heat and drama. Book 2 in this series, Quarterback’s Surprise Baby by Imani King, follows the same formula though I felt this one moved faster in terms of storyline but the ending felt a little rushed.
This weekend I’m reading The Hating Game by Sally Thorne because Mandi said I MUST and Susan Elizabeth Phillips’s First Star I See Tonight.
