What Are You Reading? (332)

Posted May 19, 2017 by Casee in Features | 2 Comments

WAYR-New

Casee: It’s been a decent reading week for me. I’ve been plugging away at D.B. Reynolds Vampires in America series. I just finished Sophia. Now I’m reading Duncan, which is book five in the series. My favorite part of this series is that the original couple, Rafael and Cyn, are in every book. The pov’s always rotate between the two, so it’s always from a fresh perspective.

Holly: I finished up my reread of the Kate Daniels series with Magic Stars and Magic Binds. Can the next books just be out already?? I’m dyyingg.

I started the Riley Jensen series by Keri Arthur. Full Moon Rising (book 1) was okay. There were some areas that were problematic for me (mainly the way Riley acted), but I enjoyed it enough to continue on. I’m starting book 2, Kissing Sin, today.

Rowena: I actually have books to report for this week. Woot! I finished The Girl with the Make Believe Husband by Julia Quinn and while I enjoyed it, I struggled a bit with it because I’m not a fan of the secret keeping trope that is involved in this one. Still, Quinn entertained me overall so I wasn’t mad about reading it. After that, I read Alex, Approximately by Jenn Bennett and I really enjoyed that one. It was light, fun and touching. I enjoyed both main characters and the love interest was too cute for words. Right now, I’m reading Shadow Reaper by Christine Feehan and to be honest, I think this is going to be my last book in this series because it’s slow going and I’m just not feeling it right now. I’m going to give it a little more and if things don’t pick up, I’ll be adding another DNF to my reading list for the year. My plan is to pick up Second Chance Season by Liora Blake. I really enjoyed the first book so I’m looking forward to digging into this one.

Happy reading everyone!

Sunday Spotlight: Lethal Lies by Rebecca Zanetti

Posted May 14, 2017 by Casee in Features, Giveaways | 3 Comments

Sunday Spotlight is a feature we began in 2016. This year we’re spotlighting our favorite books, old and new. We’ll be  raving about the books we love and being total fangirls. You’ve been warned. 🙂

Sunday Spotlight

I glommed Rebecca Zanetti late last year. I really enjoyed her Sin Brother series which introduced the Blood Brothers. Her heroes are extremely alpha, while her heroines tend to be TSTL. Not in the Blood Brothers series. That makes me very happy. I really liked Anya for the most part, but it was Heath that really made me like this book.

Lethal Lies by Rebecca Zanetti
Series: Blood Brothers
Also in this Series: Deadly Silence
Genres: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: May 16, 2017
Publisher: Forever

Revenge. It’s the only thing that will help Anya Best sleep at night. The serial killer who murdered her sister is on the loose, and Anya will stop at nothing to put him behind bars-even use herself as bait to lure him out of hiding. But she can’t do this alone.

Private investigator Heath Jones’s job is to bring bastards to justice. This time it’s personal. He knew the Copper Killer’s latest victim so when her sister asks for his help, he’s all in. But when Anya uses the media to taunt the killer, she exposes Heath’s identity, putting them both in jeopardy. Now, secrets buried long ago are coming to light and the forces determined to destroy him are watching Heath’s every move, waiting to exact their own revenge. And they’ll use anything and anyone to get to Heath.

With twists and turns that will take your breath away, LETHAL LIES is sexy, action-packed suspense at its very best from New York Times bestselling author Rebecca Zanetti.

AMAZON || BARNES AND NOBLE || KOBO

Excerpt

She swallowed and met his gaze.

“All right. Let me get this straight. We’re going undercover to flush out a killer who’s obsessed with me, and you’re offering to play at being my man for real with no strings or future?” She hoisted the bag onto her shoulder. “That’s some ego. Are you that good in bed?”

“Yes.” And that was definite interest in her eyes.

She clicked her tongue. “I’ll keep your offer in mind.”

“You do that.” He maintained a low and calm voice. “While you’re considering, let’s look at the situation. You have publicly made me your fiancé in order to draw out a killer, which means I have to act as such. Any halfway intelligent law enforcement officer or private investigator would keep his redheaded fiancée very close after the stunt you just pulled. If you’re not with me, the killer is going to be very suspicious.”

She stilled, expressions crossing her face rapidly. “That’s a good point,” she said slowly.

Yeah. Sometimes reality helped him out a little. Plus, the killer had a hard-on for her, and he must already have plans to take her at some point. She’d just upped the timeline. “In addition, you need protection around the clock now, and I’m willing to provide that. So while you’re keeping my offer in mind, we’ll be staying in the same hotel room or same apartment.” He made sure he had her full attention. “While we plan the wedding, of course.”

Her challenging smile thrilled something inside him. “That’s fair.”

He stepped back to give her some space. “Good. Are you ready?”

“Yes.” She looked around the room. “I do have to ask. What if I didn’t agree with you about your keeping secrets from me? Considering people shoot at you, and I’m going to be at your side, it seems fair that you tell me who these people are.” She cocked her head to the side and focused back on him.

“I have more immediate concerns than being fair,” he said smoothly. “You brought me into this mess.”

A frown drew down her eyebrows. “Listen. I want an answer about you.”

“I just gave you one.” At her mulish expression, he searched for better words that wouldn’t end in an argument.

Suddenly, the door blew wide open and bounced loudly off the table. “Anya!” he yelled, jumping for her.

So what do you think? Doesn’t Heath sound yummy?

WTF Cover Saturday (208)

Posted May 13, 2017 by Holly in Features | 5 Comments

WTFcoversaturday

Our guest reviewer Jen sent in today’s cover. Oh, Jen, Why??

This cover is full of win. The terrible Photoshop job, the panther sinking into the naked man..but my favorite part is the stars from nowhere. Are they meant to be a tattoo. Is it a flesh-colored banner the cat has attached to it’s paw? I can’t figure it out.
