Monthly Reads: April 2019

MR-New

Casee: April was a pretty craptastic reading month for me. I only read nine books. The month started out strong, the it took me two weeks to read one book. It was rather disappointing.

Sweet Dreams (Colorado Mountain #2) by Kristen Ashley | 4.5 out of 5
Magic Bleeds (Kate Daniels #4) (audiobook) by Ilona Andrews | 4.5 out of 5
Mystery Man (Dream Man #1) by Kristen Ashley | 4 out of 5
Fair Game (Alpha & Omega #3) (audiobook) | 4 out of 5
The Savior (Black Dagger Brotherhood #17) by J.R. Ward | 4 out of 5
More Than Want You (More Than Words #1) (audiobook) by Shayla Black | 2 out of 5
More Than Need You (More Than Words #2) (audiobook) by Shayla Black | 3 out of 5
At the Pleasure of the President (The Perfect Gentlemen #5) by Shayla Black and Lexi Blake | 4.5 out of 5
Lost Hearts (Masters and Mercenaries: The Forgotten #1) (audiobook) by Lexi Blake | DNF

My favorite reads of the month were Sweet Dreams by Kristen Ashley and At the Pleasure of the President by Shayla Black and Lexi Blake. My least favorite book of the month was More Than Want You. I know I have a DNF in there, but I think it was more because I didn’t like the narrator, not because it was a bad book. More Than Want You just wasn’t good.

Holly: April was a really sad reading month for me. Nothing but rereads kept my attention. I low key started to get anxious about my lack of reading mojo. I need to work on that. I listed 18, but of those I DNF’d 2, 3 were new reads and the rest were re-reads.

The Bride Test by Helen Hoang | 4.25 out of 5
American Witch by Thea Harrison | 4.25 out of 5
Touch of Frost by S.E. Smith (audio) | 3.5 out of 5
Ice Hot by Tracy Goodwin | DNF
Halfway to the Grave by Jeaniene Frost (audio) | DNF
Repeat by Kylie Scott (reread) (audio) | 5 out of 5
Oracle’s Moon by Thea Harrison (reread) | 4.5 out of 5
Repeat by Kylie Scott (reread) | 5 out of 5
Burn for Me by Ilona Andrews (reread) (audio) | 4 out of 5
White Hot by Ilona Andrews (reread) (audio) | 4 out of 5
Wildfire by Ilona Andrews (reread) (audio) | 4.5 out of 5
Sweet Dreams by Kristen Ashley (re-read) | 4.25 out of 5
One Fell Sweep by Ilona Andrews (reread) (audio) | 4.5 out of 5
Gunmetal Magic by Ilona Andrews (reread) (audio) | 4 out of 5
Magic Slays by Ilona Andrews (reread) (audio) | 4.25 out of 5
Fairytale Come Alive by Kristen Ashley (reread) | 4.25 out of 5
The Gamble by Kristen Ashley (reread) | 3.75 out of 5
Mystery Man by Kristen Ashley (reread) | 3 out of 5

My favorite new read of the month was The Bride Test by Helen Hoang, though American Witch is a close second. My least favorite was Ice Hot by Tracy Goodwin. I ended up DNFing it, because neither the writing nor the characters worked for me. I DNF’d Halfway to the Grave as well, but I plan to read that one soon. I think it was just the audiobook I didn’t care for. You’ll notice I listed Repeat twice. That’s because I read the eBook and separately re-listened to the audio.

Rowena: April was a really busy month for me. I went on a short vacation back to Utah with my family and the weeks before that was spent getting ready for my trip back to Utah. So, like the other months of this year, my reading has been pretty sad. Here’s what I read last month:

The Year We Hid Away (The Ivy Years #2) by Sarina Bowen (Kindle Unlimited) | 5 out of 5
The Key to Happily Ever After by Tif Marcelo (eARC) | 4 out of 5
Fumbled (The Playbook #2) by Alexa Martin (eARC) | 4.25 out of 5
The Understatement of the Year (The Ivy Years #3) by Sarina Bowen (Kindle Unlimited) | 4.5 out of 5
The Shameless Hour (The Ivy Years #4) by Sarina Bowen (Kindle Unlimited) | 4.25 out of 5
Magic Burns (Kate Daniels #2) by Ilona Andrews (eBook) | 4.25 out of 5
Hook Shot (Hoops #3) by Kennedy Ryan (Kindle Unlimited) | 4.75 out of 5
The Bride Test (The Kiss Quotient #2) by Helen Hoang (eARC) | 4.25 out of 5
Ice Hot (New York Nighthawks #1) by Tracy Goodwin (eBook) | DNF
Frost Burned (Mercy Thompson #7) by Patricia Briggs (eBook) | 4 out of 5

My favorite read of the month goes to Hook Shot by Kennedy Ryan because that book hit me in every single feel in my body. I adored both Kenan and Lotus and their romance just flat out rocked. So much goodness there.

My least favorite read of the month goes to the only book that I DNF’d and that was Ice Hot by Tracy Goodwin. I just didn’t like that one at all.

Monthly Reads: March 2019

Posted April 3, 2019 by Rowena in Features, Giveaways | 10 Comments

Casee: I had a wonderful reading month. I mostly listened to audiobooks because I had little time to sit down and read. What I was able to read, I really enjoyed. I discovered Kristen Ashley (help!) and cannot stop reading her. I’ve also listened to some delightful audiobooks. Overall, I am thrilled with my reading month. I read/listened to twelve books in March.

Magic Bites (Kate Daniels #1) by Ilona Andrews (audio) | 3.5 out of 5
Own the Wind by Kristen Ashley | 4.25 out of 5
Written in Red (The Others #1) by Anne Bishop (audio) | 4.25 out of 5
Shadow Warrior (Shadow #4) by Christine Feehan | 4 out of 5
Wicked Abyss (Immortals After Dark #18) by Kresley Cole (audio) | 4.25 out of 5
Murder of Crows (The Others #2) by Anne Bishop (audio) | 4.25 out of 5
Lady Isabella’s Scandalous Marriage (MacKenzies & MacBrides #2) by Jennifer Ashley (audio) | 4 out of 5
Ride Steady (Chaos #3) by Kristen Ashley | 4.5 out of 5
Hunting Ground (Alpha & Omega #2) by Patricia Briggs (audio) | 4 out of 5
Getting School by Emma Chase (audio) | 4.75 out of 5
Magic Burns (Kate Daniels #2) by Ilona Andrews (audio) | 4 out of 5
Magic Strikes (Kate Daniels #3) by Ilona Andrews (audio) | 4.5 out of 5

I am having a really hard time picking my favorites this month because I didn’t read a bad book. If I had to choose, I would say Getting Schooled by Emma Chase and Ride Steady by Kristen Ashley. My least favorite was Magic Bites by Ilona Andrews, but I am so glad that I continued on with the series.

Holly: I had a sad, very sorry reading month in March. I managed to finish 15 books, but the majority of them were re-reads and I read them mostly in the first half of the month. I think I only finished 3 books in the second half.

xo, Zach by Kendall Ryan (audio) | 1.5 out of 5
Wild Irish by C.M. Seabrook (audio) | 2.75 out of 5
Lady Derring Takes a Lover by Julie Anne Long (audio) | 4.25 out of 5
Dane’s Storm by Mia Sheridan (audio) | 3 out of 5
Overnight Sensation by Sarina Bowen | 4 out of 5
Wolf Rain by Nalini Singh | 4/4.25 out of 5
Getting Schooled by Emma Chase (reread) | 4.25 out of 5
Magic Bites by Ilona Andrews (audio) (reread) | 3 out of 5
Magic Burns by Ilona Andrews (audio) (reread) | 3.75 out of 5
Magic Bleeds by Ilona Andrews (audio) (reread) | 4 out of 5
Magic Strikes by Ilona Andrews (audio) (reread) | 4.25 out of 5
Curran POV (novella) (reread) | 4 out of 5
Own the Wind by Kristen Ashley (reread) | 4 out of 5
Ride Steady by Kristen Ashley (reread) | 4 out of 5
Rock Chick Revolution by Kristen Ashley (reread) | 2.5 out of 5
Rock Chick Regret by Kristen Ashley (reread) | 3.75 out of 5

My favorite new read of the month was Lady Derring Takes a Lover by Julie Anne Long. I absolutely loved the heroine and the way she took control of her life. I also loved the female friendships and the romance. It was an excellent read all the way around. My least favorite was xo, Zach by Kendall Ryan. It had promise but quickly went downhill.

Rowena: Like Holly, my reading last month was pretty miserable. I didn’t read nearly as many books that I thought I’d read and what it suck even more is that I just didn’t want to read. This slump that I’m falling into needs to make its way out of my life because I have lots of books to read. Here’s what I did read:

The Dating Game by Kiley Roache (eARC) | 3.25 out of 5
Eyes on Me by Rachel Harris (eARC) | 4 out of 5
Team Player by Julianna Keyes (eARC) | 4 out of 5
Overnight Sensation (Brooklyn Bruisers #5) by Sarina Bowen (eBook) | 4.5 out of 5
Magic Bites (Kate Daniels #1) by Ilona Andrews (eBook) | 3 out of 5
Repeat by Kylie Scott (audio) | 4 out of 5
Getting Lucky Number Seven (Taking Shots #1) by Cindi Madsen (audio) | 4 out of 5
Anatomy of a Player (Taking Shots #2) by Cindi Madsen (audio) | 3.25 out of 5
Next Year in Havana by Chanel Cleeton (eBook) | 4 out of 5
The Right Swipe (Modern Dating #1) by Alisha Rai (eARC) | 3.5 out of 5
When We Left Cuba by Chanel Cleeton (eARC) | 4.25 out of 5
You’d be Mine by Erin Hahn (eARC) | 4 out of 5
Extra Credit by Sarina Bowen (eBook) | 4.25 out of 5

My favorite of the month goes to Overnight Sensation (Brooklyn Bruisers #5) by Sarina Bowen. I adored this book so much, Jason and Heidi were a fabulous couple. My least favorite read of the month is probably Magic Bites (Kate Daniels #1) by Ilona Andrews. I spent far too long being bored in that book and though it does pick up and I am anxious for more, I enjoyed it the least of all the books I read last month.

Monthly Reads: February 2019

Posted March 4, 2019 by Holly in Features, Giveaways | 9 Comments

February is the month of love and even though Holly isn’t a fan of Valentine’s Day in general, we got in on the love train this month. Here’s what each of us read last month, along with our favorites and least favorite reads of the month.

Casee: February was pretty good for me. About half my books were audiobooks. I honestly have no idea how I used to read 20+ books a month with two small children. It really baffles me. These are my reads for the month:

Rush by Maya Banks | 3.5 out of 5
Sweet Sinful Nights (audiobook) by Lauren Blakely | 3.75 out of 5
Fever by Maya Banks | 1 out of 5
The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie (audiobook) | 4.5 out of 5
Repeat by Kylie Scott (audiobook) | 4.5 out of 5
Burn by Maya Banks | 3.5 out of 5
Keep Me Safe by Maya Banks | 1 out of 5
Cake by J. Bengtsson (audiobook) | 3.75 out of 5
Still Not Over You by Nicole Snow | 2.5 out of 5
Say You’re Sorry by Karen Rose (audiobook) | 4.5 out of 5

My favorite reads of the month were The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie and Say You’re Sorry by Karen Rose. Those two just stuck with me. My very least favorite was Keep Me Safe by Maya Banks followed very closely by Fever by Maya Banks.

Holly: February was a bad reading month for me. I managed to read 15 books, but it felt like it took forever to finish them. Let’s hope March is better.

Dirty by Kylie Scott (audiobook) | 2 out of 5
Ariana by Dylan Ash | 3.25 out of 5
Repeat by Kylie Scott (audiobook) | 5 out of 5
Free by Kristen Ashley | 2 out of 5
Devil’s Daughter by Lisa Kleypas | 4.5 out of 5
Written in Red by Anne Bishop (reread) (audio) | 4.5 out of 5
Murder of Crows by Anne Bishop (reread) (audio) | 4.25 out of 5
Vision in Silver by Anne Bishop (reread) (audio) | 4.5 out of 5
Marked in Flesh by Anne Bishop (reread) (audio) | 4.5 out of 5
Etched in Bone by Anne Bishop (reread) (audio) | 4.5 out of 5
Lake Silence by Anne Bishop (reread) (audio) | 4.25 out of 5
Wild Country by Anne Bishop | 4 out of 5
Sweet Dreams by Kristen Ashley (reread) | 4 out of 5
Fairytale Come Alive by Kristen Ashley (reread) | 4 out of 5
Wild Irish Heart by Tricia O’Malley (audio) | DNF

My favorite read of the month was Repeat by Kylie Scott. That was such a fabulous audiobook. My least favorite read was Dirty by Kylie Scott. I didn’t understand the heroine or why either m/c did what they did.

Rowena: February was a short month and I went almost two weeks without reading anything so I’m not at all surprised that I only read 10 books this month. sigh I’m not freaking out about that or anything because according to Goodreads, I’m still on track to meeting my reading goals so that’s something.

The month started out with some fantastic reads, books that I was anxious to read and I was thrilled that they lived up to the hype that I gave them in my head. Too bad my month ended with some serious WTF did I just read books so that was a bit of a downer. I’ll go into that more below but here’s what I read last month.

Devil’s Daughter (The Ravenels #5) by Lisa Kleypas (eARC) | 4.75 out of 5
Risk, The (Briar U #2) by Elle Kennedy (eARC) | 4.5 out of 5
Assist, The (Smart Jocks #1) by Rebecca Jenshak (eBook) | 3 out of 5
Huge Deal (21 Wall Street #3) by Lauren Layne (eBook) | 5 out of 5
Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie, The (Mckenzies & McBrides #1) by Jennifer Ashley (Audiobook) | 4.25 out of 5
River Marked (Mercy Thompson #6) by Patricia Briggs (eBook) | 4.25 out of 5
Only a Breath Apart by Katie McGarry (eARC) | 4 out of 5
The Kiss Quotient (The Kiss Quotient #1) by Helen Hoang (Audiobook) | 5 out of 5
Bad Bachelor (Bad Bachelors #1) by Stefanie London (eBook) | 3 out of 5
Bad Reputation (Bad Bachelors #2) by Stefanie London (eBook) | 1 out of 5

My favorite reads of the month go to Huge Deal by Lauren Layne, Devil’s Daughter by Lisa Kleypas, and The Risk by Elle Kennedy. Kate and Kennedy were fabulous and I’m still not over Jealous Kennedy and the shouting match they got into at Kennedy’s parents anniversary dinner. Gah, that scene was just fantastic. I also completely loved West and Phoebe, seeing those two come together and seeing West with Phoebe’s kids??? Gah, so much goodness here. Brenna and Jake were just as awesome as I was hoping too so I was a happy camper to start the month off.

My least favorite read of the month goes to the last book that I read, Bad Reputation by Stefanie London. That book was a mess for me. The heroine was so extra in the beginning and all of the mystery surrounding why she was so extra about performing in the hero’s show fell flat for me and then the hero does the douchiest thing that pissed me off but none of that compares to how ragey I got over the whole Bad Bachelor app shit. Grrrr, I’m still pretty angry about that so I DNF’d the last book in the series because…I just can’t.

Monthly Reads: January 2019

Posted February 5, 2019 by Casee in Features, Giveaways | 12 Comments

Casee: I started off the year strong, reading/listening to 11 books. That is so much better than a year ago when I only read two books.

Here are the books that I read in January:

Evidence of Desire by Lexi Blake | 4 out of 5
Dirty English by Ilsa Madden-Mills (audiobook) | 3 out of 5
Long Shot by Kennedy Ryan | 4.5 out of 5
Filthy English by Ilsa Madden-Mills (audiobook) | 2 out of 5
Wanderlust by Lauren Blakely (audiobook) | 4.25 out of 5
Toxic Game by Christine Feehan | 3.75 out of 5
Mastered by Maya Banks | 3.75 out of 5
Part-Time Lover by Lauren Blakely (audiobook) | 4.25 out of 5
Dominated by Maya Banks | 3.5 out of 5
Fireworks by Sarina Bowen (audiobook) | 4.5 out of 5
Kept by Maya Banks | 3.75 out of 5

My favorite books of this month were Long Shot by Kennedy Ryan (a new-to-me author) and Fireworks by Sarina Bowen. I love listening to Sarina Bowen’s books on audio. The narrators are always stellar. I also listened to two Lauren Blakely books on audio, which are on the top of my list. My least favorite of the month was Filthy English by Ilsa Madden-Mills (another new-to-me author). I’m not sure if I’ll read anything by her again. She’s not for me.

Holly: I read/listened to 20 books in January. I feel like I’m reading a lot less than I am. Part of it is that I have very little reading time right now, so I’m reading books in stops and starts, instead of all in one sitting like I normally do. Let’s hope things are better in February.

Charming by Dannika Dark (audio) | 3.25 out of 5
Three Little Words by Jenny Holiday | 3.5 out of 5
Never Deal with Dragons (audio) | 3.0 out of 5
Heart of Obsidian by Nalini Singh (reread) | 4.5 out of 5
Rock Chick Reawakening (reread) (audio) | 4.25 out of 5
Jace by Kenzie Cox (audio) | 3.5 out of 5
Aiden by Kenzie Cox (audio) | 3.25 out of 5
Luc by Kenzie Cox (audio) | 3 out of 5
Honor’s Splendour by Julie Garwood (reread) (audio) | 4.5 out of 5
The Wedding by Julie Garwood (reread) (audio) | 4.5 out of 5
Drawn Together by Lauren Dane (reread) (audio) | 4.25 out of 5
The Wrong Game by Kandi Steiner (audio) | 2.75 out of 5
The Good Ones by Jenn McFinlay | 3.5 out of 5
How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf by Molly Harper (audio) | 3.75 out of 5
From Scotland with Love by Kelli Ireland (audio) | DNF
Highland Guard by Hannah Howell (audio) | 3.5 out of 5
Tikka Chance on Me by Suleikha Snyder | 3.5 out of 5
Gimme Some Sugar by Molly Harper | 4 out of 5
Fierce Obsessions by Suzanne Wright | 3 out of 5
Ready to Were by Robyn Peterman (audio) | DNF

My favorite read of the month was How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf by Molly Harper, with an honorable mention to Tikka Chance on Me. My least favorites were Ready to Were by Robyn Peterman and From Scotland with Love by Kelli Ireland. Both were over-the-top full of camp, and I had to DNF them.

Rowena: I’m shooting for 150 books read this year and in order to reach that lofty goal, I have to average about 13 books per month. In January, I read 14 books so…yeah, I’m off to a good start.

99 Percent Mine by Sally Thorne (eARC) | 4 out of 5
Holiday Hoops (Hoops #2.5) by Kennedy Ryan (eBook) | 4.25 out of 5
Governess Gone Rogue (Dear Lady Truelove #3) by Laura Lee Guhrke (eARC) | 4 out of 5
Right Where I Want You by Jessica Hawkins (eBook) | 3.75 out of 5
The Wrong Game by Kandi Steiner (eBook) | 2.5 out of 5
Blood Kiss (Black Dagger Legacy #1) by J.R. Ward (eBook) | 4 out of 5
One and Only (Bridesmaids Behaving Badly #1) by Jenny Holiday (eBook) | 4.5 out of 5
It Takes Two (Bridesmaids Behaving Badly #2) by Jenny Holiday (eBook) | 4.75 out of 5
Merrily Ever After (Bridesmaids Behaving Badly #2.5) by Jenny Holiday (eBook) | 4.75 out of 5
Three Little Words (Bridesmaids Behaving Badly #3) by Jenny Holiday (eARC) | 4.5 out of 5
From Lukov with Love by Mariana Zapata (Audiobook) | 4.25 out of 5
Thirty Day Boyfriend by Whitney G. (Audiobook) | 3.5 out of 5
Fame, Fate, and the First Kiss by Kasie West (eARC) | 3.75 out of 5
The Scoundrel in Her Bed (Sins for All Season #3) by Lorraine Heath (eARC) | 5 out of 5

My favorite book of the month goes to The Scoundrel in Her Bed (Sins for All Season #3) by Lorraine Heath. Man, Lorraine Heath is really bringing her A-game with this series. Each book has been heartbreaking and beautiful and Finn’s book was no different. I absolutely adored it and cannot wait for Aiden’s book..and Beast and Fancy’s. I love how each book revolves around a main theme but are uniquely different. I just…gah. I loved it.

My least favorite read of the month goes to The Wrong Game by Kandi Steiner. It wasn’t the read I was hoping it to be and though I’m not going to give up on the author, this book was a bit of a disappointment to me.

Monthly Reads: December 2018

Posted January 7, 2019 by Rowena in Features, Giveaways | 12 Comments

Casee: I’m actually pretty surprised that I read as many books as I did. I really expected to list four books at the most. I guess the holidays didn’t kick my butt as much as I thought.

Vengeance Road by Christine Feehan | 3.75 out 5
Hate Note by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward (audiobook) | 4 out of 5
Worth the Fight by Vi Keeland (audiobook) | DNF
My Favorite Half-Night Stand by Christina Lauren (audiobook) | 3.5 out of 5
Too Far Gone by Christy Reece | 3 out of 5
Of Blood and Bone by Nora Roberts | 2.5 out of 5
Demon’s Mercy by Rebecca Zanetti | 4.25 out of 5

My favorite read of the month was definitely Demon’s Mercy by Rebecca Zanetti. I just adore the Dark Protectors series. My least favorite was Worth the Fight by Vi Keeland. I’m not really sure if it was because the audio was so horrific or because it was actually a bad story. I’ve thought about reading it, but I don’t really care that much about it.

Holly: December was a pretty busy month for me. I listened to a lot of audiobooks, but didn’t have a lot of time to read. I managed to finish 14 books. All but 4 were audiobooks.

Spiral of Need by Suzanne Wright (audiobook) | 4 out of 5
Force of Tempation (audiobook | 4 out of 5
Lure of Oblivion (audiobook) | 4 out of 5
Echoes of Fire by Suzanne Wright (audiobook) | 4.25 out of 5
Feral Sins by Suzanne Wright (audiobook) | 3.5 out of 5
Wicked Cravings by Suzanne Wright (audiobook) |
Carnal Secrets by Suzanne Wright (audiobook) | 2.75/3 out of 5
Wild Hunger by Suzanne Wright (eBook) | 4.25 out of 5
Hate Notes by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward (audiobook) | 2.5 out of 5
Inside Out by Lauren Dane (reread) (audiobook) | 4 out of 5
Never Enough by Lauren Dane (reread) (audiobook) | 3.5 out of 5
Mystery Man by Kristen Ashley (reread) (eBook) | 3 out of 5
Fairytale Come Alive by Kristen Ashley (reread) (eBook) | 3.5 out of 5
My Favorite Half-Night Stand by Christina Lauren (eBook) | 4 out of 5

My favorite reads of the month were Echoes of Fire and Wild Hunger by Suzanne Wright. I really enjoyed both. My least favorite was Hate Notes by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward. It wasn’t terrible, but it wasn’t good, either.

Rowena: December was a pretty shitty reading month for me. I just wasn’t in the mood to read anything because I was deep in a binge watch of Hart of Dixie and I spent my New Year’s watching Game of Thrones but it’s been a lot of fun catching up on these shows. I did manage to read about 6 books though. Here’s a list of what I read in the month of December.

Once and for All by Sarah Dessen (eBook) | 4 out of 5
Mystery Man (Dream Man #1) by Kristen Ashley (eBook) | 1 out of 5
The One You Fight For (The Ones that Got Away #3) by Roni Loren (eARC) | 4 out of 5
Famous in a Small Town by Emma Mills (eARC) | 4 out of 5
Illegally Yours (Laws of Attraction #2) by Kate Meader (eARC) | 4 out of 5
Playing for Keeps (Heartbreaker Bay #7) by Jill Shalvis (eARC) | 4 out of 5

My favorite read of the month goes to The One You Fight For by Roni Loren. Taryn and Shaw’s romance was heartbreaking and emotional and just all around good. I adored both of them and loved reading their romantic journey.

My least favorite read of the month goes to Mystery Man by Kristen Ashley because I freaking hated that book. Hawk did nothing for me and Gwen was annoying so yeah, seriously, this book was just bad all over for me.
