Weekend Reminisces #13



Hey, it's Friday, the start of the weekend.

So... lets focus on what's new for me.



What did I add to my shelf recently?

Addicted to You
(Addicted #1)
by
Krista Ritchie



She’s addicted to sex. He’s addicted to booze…the only way out is rock bottom.

No one would suspect shy Lily Calloway’s biggest secret. While everyone is dancing at college bars, Lily stays in the bathroom. To get laid. Her compulsion leads her to one-night stands, steamy hookups and events she shamefully regrets. The only person who knows her secret happens to have one of his own.

Loren Hale’s best friend is his bottle of bourbon. Lily comes at a close second. For three years, they’ve pretended to be in a real relationship, hiding their addictions from their families. They’ve mastered the art of concealing flasks and random guys that filter in and out of their apartment.

But as they sink beneath the weight of their addictions, they cling harder to their destructive relationship and wonder if a life together, for real, is better than a lie. Strangers and family begin to infiltrate their guarded lives, and with new challenges, they realize they may not just be addicted to alcohol and sex.

Their real vice may be each other. 

New Adult Romance recommended for readers 18+ for mature content.

Dangerous Lies
by
Becca Fitzpatrick



Another thrilling read from the queen of YA smoulder, Becca Fitzpatrick. If you enjoyed Hush, Hush, you'll love Dangerous Lies 

Stella Gordon's life is a lie.

She does not belong in Thunder Basin, Nebraska. As the key witness in a murder trial, Stella is under witness protection, living a life she doesn't want. No one can know who she really is. Not even Chet Falconer, her hot, enigmatic neighbour. But against her better judgement, Stella finds herself falling under Chet's spell ...

A storm is brewing. Is Stella really safe in Thunder Basin? And will Chet be her shelter, or her downfall ...?







“I haven't been able to think straight since I met you. I can't think of a day when you haven't been in my thoughts. There are a hundred other things I should be thinking about, but I think about you. What you're doing, when I'll see you next, what you're thinking.” 

A romantic thriller, not my usual read but since it was written by Ms. Fitzpatrick, I wasn't going to pass it up. The romance moved at a slow pace and I felt that there were a few loose ends left untied at the end, but other then that, a great read.

My rating 4 out of 5

Waiting on Wednesday # 99 ~ Sexy Lies and Rock & Roll by Sawyer Bennett




Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine which spotlights highly anticipated upcoming releases.


This week I'm waiting on:

Sexy Lies and Rock & Roll
by
Sawyer Bennett 

Expected publication: November 14th 2016 




From NYT Bestselling author, Sawyer Bennett, comes a SEXY new stand alone romance…

When you’re a rock god, fame and fortune are your two best friends, but they can be fickle bitches. Everyone wants a piece of me and I have no clue how to deal with it all. I’m being sued, pressured to sign contracts, and fending off rabid women who want to steal my virtue.
Well, not that I really have any virtue, but still… my life has turned completely bat-shit crazy.
That’s why I need Emma Peterson. She got me out of a bit of a jam once, and I know she can do it again. The only problem is that sweet, prim and totally straight-laced Emma doesn’t want anything to do with me. Not professionally, and certainly not personally. 
It’s not that I want her in that way. Let’s be realistic… it would take a crow bar of epic proportions to get her to spread those legs for me.
No, I only want her legal expertise and for her to make sense of my crazy world. It’s a good thing I have just the leverage to make her do my bidding, because her refusal is not an option.

*Sexy Lies and Rock & Roll is a hot, romantic comedy STAND ALONE.

Weekend Reminisces #12



Hey, it's Friday, the start of the weekend.

So... lets focus on what's new for me.

I seem to have these sporadic times of super busyness and then short periods of lull. Currently, I'm in a lull. That is to say, that for the moment I'm on top of all my work and able to take a short break.


So what did I add to my shelf recently?

Sad to say... nothing.
I've had little time to browse ebooks on Kindle and even less to browse the book stores. I seriously need to amend this situation.

Empire of Storms
(Throne of Glass #5)
by
Sarah J. Maas


The long path to the throne has only just begun for Aelin Galathynius. Loyalties have been broken and bought, friends have been lost and gained, and those who possess magic find themselves at odds with those don't.

As the kingdoms of Erilea fracture around her, enemies must become allies if Aelin is to keep those she loves from falling to the dark forces poised to claim her world. With war looming on all horizons, the only chance for salvation lies in a desperate quest that may mark the end of everything Aelin holds dear.

Aelin's journey from assassin to queen has entranced millions across the globe, and this fifth installment will leave fans breathless. Will Aelin succeed in keeping her world from splintering, or will it all come crashing down?






A little long but a great read and so, so much action.
My rating: 5 out of 5

Waiting on Wednesday # 98 ~ A Million Worlds with You (Firebird #3) by Claudia Gray




Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine which spotlights highly anticipated upcoming releases.


This week I'm waiting on:

A Million Worlds with You
(Firebird #3)
by
Claudia Gray 

Expected publication: November 1st 2016
(Yes, the wait is not very long... only a few days)




A million universes. A million dangers. One destiny.

The fate of the multiverse rests in Marguerite Caine’s hands. Marguerite has been at the center of a cross-dimensional feud since she first traveled to another universe using her parents’ invention, the Firebird. Only now has she learned the true plans of the evil Triad Corporation—and that those plans could spell doom for dozens or hundreds of universes, each facing total annihilation.

Paul Markov has always been at Marguerite’s side, but Triad’s last attack has left him a changed man—angry and shadowed by tragedy. He struggles to overcome the damage done to him, but despite Marguerite’s efforts to help, Paul may never be the same again.

So it’s up to Marguerite alone to stop the destruction of the multiverse. Billions of lives are at stake. The risks have never been higher. And Triad has unleashed its ultimate weapon: another dimension’s Marguerite—wicked, psychologically twisted, and always one step ahead.

In the epic conclusion to Claudia Gray’s Firebird trilogy, fate and family will be questioned, loves will be won and lost, and the multiverse will be forever changed. It’s a battle of the Marguerites . . . and only one can win.


I have the first two books in this series and have still not read them because I was waiting on this, the final book in the trilogy. So glad I can start the adventure real soon.

Waiting on Wednesday # 97 ~ Till Death by Jennifer L. Armentrout




Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine which spotlights highly anticipated upcoming releases.


This week I'm waiting on:

Till Death
by
Jennifer L. Armentrout

Expected publication: February 28th 2017 




In New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout’s gripping new novel, a young woman comes home to reclaim her life—even as a murderer plots to end it. . . 

It’s been ten years since Sasha Keaton left her West Virginia hometown . . . since she escaped the twisted serial killer known as the Groom. Returning to help run her family inn means being whole again, except for one missing piece. The piece that falls into place when Sasha’s threatened—and FBI agent Cole Landis vows to protect her the way he couldn’t a decade ago.

First one woman disappears; then another, and all the while, disturbing calling cards are left for the sole survivor of the Groom’s reign of terror. Cole’s never forgiven himself for not being there when Sasha was taken, but he intends to make up for it now . . . because under the quirky sexiness Cole first fell for is a steely strength that only makes him love Sasha more.

But someone is watching. Waiting. And Sasha’s first mistake could be her last.

Weekend Reminisces #11



Hey, it's Friday, the start of the weekend.

So... lets focus on what's new for me.



What book(s) did I add to my shelf?

Conquering Love
(Montana Wilds #2)
by
Willow Summers 

Christie thought escaping to the dude ranch in rural Montana would help her forget. With a past like hers, intimacy is no longer an option, and running seems the only way. But when she meets a handsome and carefree ranch hand, suddenly his touch is all she can think about. 

Greg hasn’t given much thought to settling down. He’s happy working the ranch and living off the land. But the troubled yet spunky Christie has his head spinning and his heart aching. He’d sacrifice anything to see her smile. 

With Greg’s support, Christie must finally face the fears of her past. To fail would be to lose the one man that made her feel alive again. 

** This is a stand alone, full length book with HEA. 







A stand alone novel always sucks me in.

Rushed
(Rushed #1)
by
Gina Robinson


A girl who has everything. A guy who has everything to lose.

Some things can't be…

RUSHED

Alexis
Like there has ever been any doubt which sorority my family expects me to pledge. I'm a third-generation legacy. On the first day of rush, I realize I'm in trouble. I'm not like the other girls in the house. But as long as my parents control my college funds, resisting is futile. Until Zach, the live-in houseboy, who's quite possibly the hottest guy I will ever meet, serves me a cupcake and flashes me a sympathetic look. With one enigmatic smile, he flips my heart and my world upside down. My parents will cut me off if they even suspect I'm interested in a house guy. But I can't stay away from him. And so I pledge the house for all the wrong reasons.

Zach
Living in a sorority? I get flipped a load of crap about being a live-in servant, the help. Easy access to the hottest girls on campus? Not with the unbreakable rule—get caught with one of the girls and you're fired. Immediately. Lose this job and I can't afford college. I sure as hell can't ask my parents for help. They wish I'd never been born. Considering what I did, I don't blame them. I've learned to think of the girls like sisters. Until Alexis pledges the house. Now sister is the last thing on my mind. 

*** Standalone novel. No cliffhanger. ***

This is a contemporary romance with mature themes, language, and situations. Readers should be over 17!

This was a quick and easy read. Nothing super but enjoyable nevertheless.
My rating: 4 out of 5
