Casee: I might still be reading Hello Again by Brenda Novak, but I’m still reading. It’s a damn Christmas miracle at my house. We’re doing a bunch of remodeling so I don’t have a ton of time to read, but I’m taking what I can get. I’m glad that I’m actually interested in a book. I really enjoy Evelyn and how her mind works. Readers of romantic suspense will really enjoy this series.

Holly: I spent the week reading the Rock Chick series by Kristen Ashley. I skipped the majority of the series after finishing book 1 years ago, because a little bit of the Rock Chicks goes a long way. I was in the mood for KA, however, so I figured I’d finally dive into them. First I re-read Rock Chick Revolution. I wasn’t able to get through the book the first time I tried, but I managed it this time. The romance was good, but KA inserting herself into the story was crazycakes. Then I read Rock Chick Rescue, Rock Chick Revenge, Rock Chick Redemption and Rock Chick Renegade. I also listened to Good Boy by Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy on audio. I read the book for the first time recently, but I hadn’t listened to the audio. It was really good. The chapters alternate between the hero and heroine, and the narrators alternated between a man and a woman in conjunction. It was great.

Rowena: I haven’t gotten any reading done this week. Well, I read some but not nearly as much as I thought I would. I only read A Duke in Shining Armor by Loretta Chase. That was an enjoyable read and I’m looking forward to what’s next for those characters. Loretta Chase is a great historical romance and I’m a huge fan.

I blame all of my non-reading this week to the Los Angeles Dodgers….because WE’RE GOING TO THE WORLD SERIES!! WE’RE GOING TO THE WORLD SERIES (Holly the Cubs fan: UGH!!!)!! I’ve been too into watching my Dodgers battle the reigning champs for the NLCS pennant and last night, we got it. It feels great! This team man…they’re the bomb.

I’ll be reading An Ex for Christmas by Lauren Layne today. I’m looking forward to it!

Casee: I’m reading. I’m actually reading a book. Thank you, Brenda Novak. I’m reading Hello Again by Brenda Novak. It’s the second book in her Hanover House series. This series keeps me on the edge of my seat and I love that about this series. I’m just happy to be reading again.

Holly: I read some contemporary roms this week. I guess I’m finally finished with my ConRom hiatus. I read Sustained by Emma Chase, which was amazing! Rowena recommended it and she was so right, I loved that book. Then I read Sidebarred, the follow up novella featuring the same family. So.Freaking.Good. I reread Stay by Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy and The Promise by Kristen Ashley.

I think I’m going to read Dream On by Stacey Keith next.

Rowena: It’s been a quiet week for me at home so I did manage to get some reading done. I read Played by Jen Frederic and that was a good read. It wasn’t my favorite book in the series but Ty and Ara were lovely characters and it was good to see everyone else again. I’m curious who is next in that series. I wouldn’t mind reading Nichole and Remy’s story.

After that book, I read Holiday Wishes by Jill Shalvis and that was another sweet romance. Sean was everything I hoped he would be when we first met him in Fin and Pru’s book. Now I’m reading A Duke in Shining Armor by Loretta Chase and so far, it’s great! No complaints here.

Holly: I finished Heart Sight by Robin D. Owens. It was really good. I’m not sure where she’s going to take the series now. I love Celta, but are we starting a new generation? It’ll be interesting to see. Hold Her Again by Shannon Stacey was well written – as her novels always are – but the hero drove me up a wall. I finally read Good Boy by Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy. I don’t know how I missed this series when it was released, but now I’m working my way to book 1. Then I read Sustained by Emma Chase, which Rowena has been telling me to read for ages. It was so good. I loved it. I also re-read Rock Chick Regret by Kristen Ashley.

Rowena: First off, I need to take a moment and squeal in joy over Holly finally reading and loving Sustained by Emma Chase. I love when my friends love the books that I love. 🙂

This week, I read On a Tuesday (One Week #1) by Whitney G. which was good and now I’m finishing up Lady Sophia’s Lover (Bow Street Runners #2) by Lisa Kleypas and now I’m re-reading Suddenly You by Lisa Kleypas for my book club meeting next week. I had forgotten how much love I had for old school Lisa Kleypas books. Gah, these books are so freaking good.

Holly: I continued my Garwood binge this week with The Secret, Ransom, Castles and The Lion’s Lady. Now I’m back to reading Heart Sight by Robin D.Owens.

Rowena: It’s been a strong reading week for me. I read Only with You (The Best Mistake #1) and Made for You (The Best Mistake #2) by Lauren Layne and enjoyed both books. I’m finishing up Ready for Wild (Grand Valley #3) by Liora Blake before I jump into On a Tuesday (One Week #1) by Whitney G.. I didn’t know that this book was inspired by Adele’s song When We Were Young but I do now and I’m excited to read it.

Casee: I’ve finally found a book that should get me out of this, well, whatever it is I’m in. Storm Gathering by Rebecca Zanetti is the fourth book in the Scorpius Syndrome series. I’m a sucker for dystopian romance and this series is everything I love about the genre.

Holly: Rowena and our friend Grace forced me to re-read old Julie Garwood novels this week. I wanted to read other stuff, but I just couldn’t make myself set aside those comfort reads. I read The Prize, The Bride, The Wedding, Guardian Angel, Honor’s Splendour and Saving Grace.

Rowena: It’s been a rough reading week for me but I did manage to get the one new to me read finished just last night. I did a bunch of re-reading this week and I blame that all on our friend Grace and Holly. How dare they interrupt my reading schedule with a bunch of Julie Garwood comfort reads. Ha! I re-read Julie Garwood’s The Prize, The Wedding and Saving Grace and each of those reads lived up to my love of Julie Garwood historicals. I also read Duke of My Heart by Kelly Bowen and had high expectations going in since the heroine was a historical Olivia Pope and I thought it would be really interesting but it took me a while to get into that one though I did end up liking it. I just didn’t love it.

Now I’m jumping into Only with You (The Best Mistake #1) by Lauren Layne.
