What Are You Reading? (+ Historical Giveaway)

Posted June 15, 2018 by Holly in Features, Giveaways | 12 Comments


Casee: I haven’t read a word since I finished Ocean Light a few days ago. I am so relieved that I finished that book. Which upsets me because it’s Nalini Singh. I’m heading back to the world of the Dark Protectors. I have Consumed by Rebecca Zanetti waiting for me. I can’t wait to start it.

Holly: I’m still finishing my Kate Daniels re-read. This week I read Magic Rises, Dabwaha, Curran Twitter (free), Magic Steals, Magic Breaks, Magic Shifts, Magic Stars, and I just started Iron and Magic. Magic Binds is up next.

I also read Hot Single Dad and Her Best Friend by Claire Kingsley (Free if you subscribe to her newsletter). Her Best Friend is a short story that follows Hot Single Dad and features the kids of the h/h. I really liked both stories. They were cute.

I’m going to start The Kiss Quotient today. Rowena has been raving about it.

Rowena: It’s been a great reading week for me and I’m still going strong so that makes me one happy camper. I’ve had too many suck reading weeks lately so this is a welcome change. I started the week off finishing up Always Never Yours by Emily Wibberley & Austin Siegemund-Broka. It was a cute story but ran a little on the slow side. It felt like I was waiting too long for something to happen but I’m glad that I finished it because it did end up being cute and I adored the love interest. After that, Holly and I were talking about single dads and looking for books featuring them and came across Hot Single Dad by Claire Kingsley so I read that. It was super cute so after I read that, I read Her Best Friend by Claire Kingsley, which was the kid from Hot Single Dad’s story and that was super cute too.

Right now, I’m reading The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang and everything that I’ve read so far online has been true for me too. This book is awesome and I’m so looking forward to lunchtime so that I can finish it. I really want a Michael Phan. He’s so yummy. After this book, I’ll be jumping into a quick re-read of Burn for Me by Ilona Andrews for book club and then after that, I’ll be reading Ocean Light by Nalini Singh.

At birth, Mick Trewlove, the illegitimate son of a duke, was handed over to a commoner. Despite his lowly upbringing, Mick has become a successful businessman, but all his wealth hasn’t satisfied his need for revenge against the man who still won’t acknowledge him. What else can Mick do but destroy the duke’s legitimate son—and woo the heir’s betrothed into his own unloving arms . . .

Orphaned and sheltered, Lady Aslyn Hastings longs for a bit of adventure. With her intended often preoccupied, Aslyn finds herself drawn to a darkly handsome entrepreneur who seems to understand her so well. Surely a lady of her station should avoid Mick Trewlove. If only he weren’t so irresistible . . .

As secrets are about to be exposed, Mick must decide if his plan for vengeance is worth risking what his heart truly desires.
