Casee: I was not looking forward to this week’s post because telling you that I’ve been reading the same thing for six weeks is worse than telling you that I haven’t been reading at all. Last night, I finally finished Year One by Nora Roberts. I won’t say too much about it, but look for my review soon. It’s been a long time coming. I’m going to start Judgement Road by Christine Feehan next and hope it doesn’t take another six weeks.

Holly: I had a pretty busy week without a lot of reading time. I listened to The Gamble by Kristen Ashley on audio, as well as The Secret by Julie Garwood. The only book I managed to read this week was Beyond Scandal and Desire by Lorraine Heath for my joint review with Rowena. This was my first book by Heath. I really enjoyed it. I’ll definitely be reading more in the future. Now I’m reading Whiskey Sharp: Jagged by Lauren Dane.

Rowena: It’s been a good reading week for me. I started the week off finishing The Truth about Love and Dukes by Laura Lee Guhrke for my book club meeting and while I enjoyed the book, it wasn’t a favorite. The stuffiness of the hero, in the beginning, was such a turnoff but I was glad that I finished the book because he got way better and the heroine was a straight boss. It was good but that’s it. After that, I read Breaking the Ice by Julie Cross and you guys, that book was freaking good. I thought Cross did a splendid job on writing Fletch and Haley’s complicated romance. I can’t wait for the next one.

After that, I read Love Between Enemies by Molly E. Lee and that didn’t go over well. I couldn’t stand the female protagonist and ugh. Just ugh. You’ll see why when my review is posted. Now I’m reading The Trouble with True Love by Laura Lee Guhrke because I heard it’s better than the first one and I’m mighty curious about Irene’s sister, Lady Clara. I’m hopeful that it’ll be good.

Enter New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh’s breathtakingly passionate Guild Hunter world with the story of a woman who isn’t a vampire or an angel…or human…

Once a broken girl known as Sorrow, Holly Chang now prowls the shadowy gray underground of the city for the angels. But it’s not her winged allies who make her a wanted woman—it’s the unknown power coursing through her veins. Brutalized by an insane archangel, she was left with the bloodlust of a vampire, the ability to mesmerize her prey, and a poisonous bite.

Now, someone has put a bounty on her head…

Venom is one of the Seven, Archangel Raphael’s private guard, and he’s as infuriating as he is seductive. A centuries-old vampire, his fangs dispense a poison deadlier than Holly’s. But even if Venom can protect Holly from those hunting her, he might not be able to save himself—because the strange, violent power inside Holly is awakening…

No one is safe.

What Are You Reading? (+ Historical Mystery Giveaway)

Posted January 12, 2018 by Casee in Features, Giveaways | 12 Comments

Casee: You guys, I am still reading Year One by Nora Roberts. Last week I was really into it, but due to unforeseen circumstances that actually have nothing to do with my remodel, I have had negative zero time to read. Which is really a shame because I really liked how this book began. I hope I can get back into this because I am also really looking forward to Blood Fury by J.R. Ward. Blood Fury is a book in Ward’s Black Dagger Legacy series, which I’m enjoying more than the Black Dagger Brotherhood series.

Holly: I spent the week reading The Kingmaker Chronicles by Amanda Bouchet. A Promise of Fire, book 1, was pretty good. I had some issues with it, but I enjoyed it enough to immediately start the second. Breath of Fire was really slow moving through the first half, but picked up in the second. Heart on Fire, the final book, just irritated the crap out of me. It was about 300 pages too long and mostly consisted of the heroine whining. It took forever to read and honestly, I feel like that’s 7 hours of my life I’ll never get back.

Next I’m going to read Beyond Scandal and Desire by Lorraine Heath.

Rowena: This week was a little slow for me. I’ve been all over the place but I did manage to finish Beyond Scandal and Desire by Lorraine Heath and I really liked that one. On top of the sweet romance, there was a lot going on there that was just flat out interesting. The baby farming, the real story behind Mick’s birth and just everything. There was a lot of great stuff in there and I’m pretty excited for Gillie’s book.

After that, I read About that Kiss by Jill Shalvis and really enjoyed that one as well. Jill Shalvis has really hit her stride with this series and I’m enjoying the heck out of it now. I adored both Joe and Kylie and everyone else but mostly Joe and Kylie. I’m low key wondering if Molly is going to end up with Lucas. I’ve got my fingers crossed.

Now I’m reading The Truth about Love and Dukes by Laura Lee Guhrke for my book club. I’ve been reading it for two days and I’m not making a lot of progress in it. I’m low key bored but I have to finish it because it’s my book club book and book club is on Monday. Wish me luck!

Death Below Stairs by Jennifer Ashley
Series: Kat Holloway Mysteries #1
Release Date: January 2nd, 2018
Publisher: Berkley
Genres: Historical Mystery
Pages: 336

Victorian class lines are crossed when cook Kat Holloway is drawn into a murder that reaches all the way to the throne.

Highly sought-after young cook Kat Holloway takes a position in a Mayfair mansion and soon finds herself immersed in the odd household of Lord Rankin. Kat is unbothered by the family’s eccentricities as long as they stay away from her kitchen, but trouble finds its way below stairs when her young Irish assistant is murdered.

Intent on discovering who killed the helpless kitchen maid, Kat turns to the ever-capable Daniel McAdam, who is certainly much more than the charming delivery man he pretends to be. Along with the assistance of Lord Rankin’s unconventional sister-in-law and a mathematical genius, Kat and Daniel discover that the household murder was the barest tip of a plot rife with danger and treason—one that’s a threat to Queen Victoria herself.

What Are You Reading? (+Contemporary Giveaway)

Casee: I have finally, finally gotten into Year One by Nora Roberts. I’m only about a quarter of the way through it, but I can say with 99% certainty that it is a paranormal dystopian. It’s so different from anything I’ve read from NR before. I like it. Even a quarter of the way through there is still some world building going on so it’s a little slow. I’m not worried yet. Hopefully I’ll finish it this weekend. Fingers crossed.

Holly: My reading has been pretty lame this week. I did a couple skim-throughs for review purposes, but that’s about it. I did start A Promise of Fire by Amanda Bouchet yesterday. I’m only a few pages in, but I’ve heard great things about the series.

Rowena: It’s a new year with new books to read. I read Man Candy by Jessica Lemmon this week and really enjoyed both Dax and Becca. I thought their story was sweet and super cute so I definitely recommend it. I wrote my review for that book already so you should be seeing that on the blog soon.

Right now, I’m reading Beyond Scandal and Desire by Lorraine Heath and so far, I’m really enjoying it so I’m hopeful that it will continue to be fabulous. After this one, I’m going to jump into About that Kiss by Jill Shalvis, a book that I’m looking forward to.

Sadia Ahmed can’t deal with the feelings her mysterious former brother-in-law stirs, but she also can’t turn down his offer of help with the cafe she’s inherited. While he heats up her kitchen, she slowly discovers that the boy she adored has grown into a man she’s simply unable to resist.

An affair is unthinkable, but their desire is undeniable. As secrets and lies are stripped away, Sadia and Jackson must decide if they’re strong enough to face the past…and step into a future together.

What Are You Reading? (409)

Casee: Nothing. Zero. Zilch. Nada. This is getting old.

Holly: I didn’t have much reading time this week. I’d ended up doing some re-reads and that’s it. Here’s hoping next week is better.

Rowena: It’s the last What Are You Reading post for 2017. Are you guys ready for the new year? I know that I am. I’m ready to see the end of 2017. With that said, I didn’t read much this week. Just one book and I finished it right before the end of the month which is good, considering it’s a buddy review for December. Ha. Sorry, Holly. I read and enjoyed Complicated by Kristen Ashley. Hix and Greta were great and though it was a long story, I still enjoyed the heck out of it. Next up for me is Man Candy by Jessica Lemmon but I’m taking the weekend to prep my planners, binge watch some shows and watch movies so I won’t start a book until Monday.

What Are You Reading? (408)

Casee: Somehow during the busiest time of the year, I have carved out a few minutes here and there to read. I’m reading two books. The first one is a political book. Because this is a safe place, I won’t mention which one. I will say that it is an interesting book. I’m also still reading Year One by Nora Roberts. Given how long I have been looking forward to this book, I cannot believe that I have not devoured it.

Holly: I’ve had no reading time this week. I started The Hookup by Kristen Ashley, but I only managed to get a few pages read. After Christmas I’m on vacation for a week. I plan to do nothing but read. 

Rowena is dealing with a family emergency this week. Hopefully she’ll be back next week.
