June Wrap-Up: There’s No Place Like Home!

Once again I’m running behind schedule and posting June’s monthly wrap-up well into July – but what else is new?  June was another crazy month and I spent more nights in hotel rooms than my own bed with a week in both Chicago and Tampa for work and then finally to Door County, Wisconsin for some much-needed R&R (and cheese curds) with the husband.  There was lots of time to […]

A Breath of Fire by Amanda Bouchet

A Breath of Fire by Amanda Bouchet

I finished this book almost a week ago and can’t get this Cat and Griffin off my mind.  Breath of Fire was an enjoyable read, but I’m appreciating it more the longer I have to think through the overall story arc – aren’t books strange like that sometimes? Maybe it has to do with the jam-packed storyline… Overall this series continues to be very enjoyable.  A Breath of Fire is well […]

White Hot by Ilona Andrews

I’m so grateful that the third (and hopefully not final!) installment in the Hidden Legacy trilogy comes out at the end of July because WOW!  This book didn’t disappoint.   White Hot picks up two months after the events in Burn for Me. Nevada is still trying to keep her family’s Private Investigation business afloat while strengthening her powers as a human lie detector.  She hasn’t heard from Connor “Mad” […]

Lick by Kylee Scott (Stage Dive #1)

I am so glad I found this book lingering in my Kindle pile and am excited about this new-to-me author! Lick just gave me all the feels.  Flailing my arms cannot compute words complete book hangover type of feels. And to be honest?  I’m usually skeptical of the New Adult genre.  I might need to rethink that approach in the future. Evelyn Thomas wakes up in a Las Vegas hotel room the morning […]

Golden Dynasty – Kristen Ashley

Golden Dynasty – Kristen Ashley

Golden Dynasty was impressive and I’m not ashamed to say that I really like it!  I’ve never fully committed to the Kristen Ashley bandwagon and I struggled with the writing style in the previous Fantasyland book; however, I read several Goodread’s reviews claiming the second book was better and I have to agree. In fact, I already one-clicked Fantastical, the third book in the series. Let’s get this out of the […]

Twice Tempted by Jeaniene Frost

Twice Tempted by Jeaniene Frost

Twice Tempted is the second installment in Jeaniene Frost’s Night Prince series.  While you don’t need to read the original Night Huntress series (where we first meet Vlad), you do need to read the first Night Prince novel, Once Bitten, for this book to make any sense. Leila is at a difficult crossroads in Book Two.  Her powers are on the fritz following the events at the end of Once […]

The Hating Game by Sally Thorne

The Hating Game by Sally Thorne

Okay, how did I miss this book last year?  The Hating Game made me “Squee,” and trust me, that’s something I don’t do often.  I laughed, I cried, and I swooned – multiple times.  This book was like You’ve got Mail meets  Dr. Suess’s The Sneetches with maybe a little dash of Romeo and Juliet (except much funnier and no one dies). Lucy and Joshua are executive assistants to the […]
