Casee: My reading over the last week has been subpar to say the least. I’m still reading Vendetta Road by Christine Feehan. I am almost done. I’m thinking of rereading Bound Together after I finish Vendetta Road.

I’m also listening to The Fight for Forever by Meghan March. This is the final book in her Legend Trilogy. It’s an easy listen. I’m enjoying it so far.

Holly: I finished Beauty and the Clockwork Beast, which I really enjoyed, then read the second book, Kiss of the Spindle. It didn’t work quite as well as book one did for me, but I still enjoyed it. I’m currently about halfway through Getting Schooled by Christina C. Jones. It’s fun so far. I look forward to finishing it this evening. I’m not sure what I’m going to read next.

Rowena: This week, I finished The Kissing Game by Marie Harte and hmm, I didn’t really enjoy that one. There were moments when I thought that things would pick up but nah. It wasn’t for me. I also read The Worst Best Man by Mia Sosa and while I did enjoy it (a lot more than the Marie Harte), it wasn’t a favorite either. There were times that I felt the story kind of lagged but I’m glad that I finished it. Now, I’m reading Chasing Cassandra by Lisa Kleypas and already, I’m enjoying it heaps. I can’t wait to finish it tonight. After this, I’ll be jumping into Yes No Maybe So by Becky Albertalli and Aisha Saeed.

Casee: I haven’t been reading much this past week. I finished up At Peace by Kristen Ashley which I enjoyed. I can’t decide what to read next. I keep going from Release by Aly Martinez or Vendetta Road by Christine Feehan.

I’m listening to Dirty Love by Meghan March. Or I was listening to it. I haven’t been in the mood for audiobooks this week. I’m just off when it comes to reading.

Holly: I’m finally reading a book, y’all! Tracy turned me on to a new author. I’m listening to and reading Beauty and the Clockwork Beast by Nancy Campbell Allen. It’s a Steampunk-lite, Gothic novel and I’m loving it. I plan to continue on with this series.

Rowena: Hey guys, Happy Friday! I didn’t get a whole bunch of books read this week but I’m still reading every single day and I’ll take that as a win. I finished up The Witness by Nora Roberts, which I really enjoyed. I really liked the heroine, Abigail Lowery and thought that the hero, Brooks Gleason was an excellent match for her. It’s going to make for an interesting book discussion at book club on Monday and I’m looking forward to it. After that, I read Getting Schooled by Christina C. Jones and that was a short but fun read that I really enjoyed. I need to read more black romances.

Right now, I’m finishing The Kissing Game by Marie Harte and I’m going to be honest, I’m not enjoying it as much as I thought I would. I don’t have much left to read but I’m not all that hopeful that things are going to make a drastic turn so I’m struggling with trying to decide if I should even bother reading it or not. The author’s writing style just isn’t for me. Hmm.

My next read is going to be The Worst Best Man by Mia Sosa and I hope I like that one. Fingers crossed.

Holly: I’m glad Rowena is reading, because I’m not. I haven’t read a book yet in 2020, and this week isn’t looking good either. I took a new position at work and all my extra brainpower is going there. Fingers crossed things relax soon. I miss reading.

Rowena: I’m really kicking ass in 2020 on the reading front. I’ve read hella. This week, I read The One for You by Roni Loren, which was my first 5 star read of the year. I cried a bunch while reading that one. I have enjoyed the series so much and this book really ended the series on the right note. I loved the friendships, the romance, and I really loved Kincaid and Ash’s love for her. Gah, I’m a sap. I also read Love Lettering by Kate Clayborn, which was another good read though it took me quite a while to warm up to Meg, to Reid and to whatever it was they were planning and doing in the beginning but boy does it end on such a high note. I also read Headliners by Lucy Parker, which was another fabulous addition to that series. Parker’s redemption game with Nick Davenport was strong because going into that one, I wasn’t a really big Nick fan but after? LOVE!!! Team Davenport right here. Ha! After that, I read The Rebel King by Kennedy Ryan, which knocked me on my ass at every freaking turn. That entire duet was so intense and so angsty that it took me a while before moving on to my next read. Maxim and Lennix gutted me but Kennedy Ryan put me back together so all is well. I ended my reading week with Heartland by Sarina Bowen. What a sweet romance for Dylan Shipley. Sarina Bowen is a champ for keeping the True North books coming. I absolutely adore this series. I’m curious about Dylan’s friend Rickie and if he’s going to end up with Daphne, maybe? Though I really want to see Keith get a book. I need more of that musician in my life. Fingers crossed!

Now, I’m reading The Witness by Nora Roberts. Book club is next week and I’m preparing this month’s discussion and game so I better get my ass in gear and get this book read.

Casee: This has been a strong reading week for me. I finished four books. For You by Kristen Ashley, Wife by Penelope Sky, The Fall of Legend by Meghan March, and You Were There Too by Colleen Oakley. I think I’m going to start At Peace by Kristen Ashley today, which is the second book in her ‘Burg series. I’m hoping it’s a faster read than For You.

I’m going to start listening to House of Scarlett by Meghan Meghan March today. Her books are easy and quick listens, which I really like.

Rowena: It’s been a strong reading week for me. Stronger than I’ve had in months, tbh. I read three books this week and have already started my fourth. I finished 2019 out with a read of The Kingmaker by Kennedy Ryan, and that book was such a great read even with the messed up ending. It was a lot more political than I like my romances but Kennedy Ryan is such a great writer that I was still invested in the story, the romance, and hell, even the political stuff. It was just a damn good romance. After that, my first read of the year was Grumpy Jake by Melissa Blue and that was another fun read for me. I need to read more of Melissa Blue’s books because I enjoyed this short but fun romance. I just finished reading Grand Theft N.Y.E. by Katrina Jackson and that was another fun romance. I didn’t know that criminal con artists were my thing but Kat Jackson did her thing with Robert and Cleo’s book. It was another short but fun read and I need to read more of her books too.

I need to jump back into my review pile so right now, I’m reading The One for You by Roni Loren and so far, it’s pretty good. I’ll let you guys know next week how that story turns out for me.

Casee: I am still read/listening to the same books I was last Friday. I’m reading For You by Kristen Ashley and listening to Wife by Penelope Sky. I really have nothing interesting to report on what I’m reading.

Holly: Things are still crazy here. I haven’t had much reading time. I did re-read Sweep of the Blade by Ilona Andrews and Repeat by Kylie Scott, but that’s all the actual reading time I had. I listened to two books, Complicated by Kristen Ashley – and Audible original – and The Wallflower Wager by Tessa Dare. I’m hoping I’ll have time to read this coming weekend, but don’t hold your breath.

Rowena: This week was another week that I thought I’d do good on the reading front and then…didn’t. I finished Angelfire by Courtney Allison Moulton for book club tonight and enjoyed that one again. It was a re-read but I read it years ago and didn’t remember much from it so it was a pretty fresh read. It took me a little to warm up to Ellie but I immediately loved Will. Ha! I started The Kingmaker by Kennedy Ryan but didn’t get very far into it so I’m hoping to finish that up this weekend and jump into The Rebel King by Kennedy Ryan though I might just jump into my eARC of Chasing Cassandra by Lisa Kleypas. Who knows. Wish me luck!
