Casee: Oh boy. I haven’t been reading much lately, but not because I’m back in my slump. We are remodeling and my life is in chaos. I’m not able to find a quiet place to read in my house to save my life. When I can sneak a few minutes, I’m reading Ride Wild by Laura Kaye. This is the third book in her Raven Riders series. So far it is really good. I just need more time to read it.

Holly: I had a pretty crazy week and didn’t have a lot of reading time. I did some re-reading and finished Play it Safe by Kristen Ashley. It’s an older book but I missed it the first time around. I’m not sure what I’ll read next.

Rowena: I finished reading Wrong to Need You by Alisha Rai and The Wedding by Julie Garwood earlier this week and I enjoyed both books but I haven’t been able to jump into a new read though I did pick up Hard Cherish by Nalini Singh. Wish me luck because I’m starting to feel like Will when he’s back and everything seems okay but he keeps getting stuck in the upside down. I was reading and loving life and then…I was not reading. Or not reading much.

Holly: I’ve been sick for the past week and a half, which has really cut into my reading. I just can’t concentrate on anything. I did read a couple books, but it took me days to finish them.

I read Complicated by Kristen Ashley. This was originally written as an audio-only release. The digital version came out on the 7th. I skipped the audio in favor of the ebook. It was a sweet contemporary romance. I love how Ashley writes small town romances. I started Christmas in Kilts, a Christmas anthology. I finished A Highlander’s Hope by Terri Brisbin, the first novella in the collection, but it didn’t do much for me. I’m not sure if it was the story or my reading mood. I’ve set the antho aside for now and I’ll come back to it when I’m feeling more in the mood for Historicals.

Other than that, I reread Mystery Man and Fairytale Come Alive by Kristen Ashley. I started about 10 other books, but none of them held my attention. Let’s hope I kick this cold this weekend and get back into the swing of things.

Rowena: …and I’m back! I am finally reading again after not reading for a couple of weeks. I buckled down and read some goodies this week and I’m super stoked to have gotten back to my review pile. Lots of good stuff in there.

This week I read Changing the Game by Jaci Burton, which was a cute baseball romance. Why haven’t I read more of her books?? She’s great. After that I read Hate to Want You by Alisha Rai, which was another fantastic romance and right now I’m finishing up Wrong to Need You by Alisha Rai and I’m liking this book more than Hate to Want You and I adored that one. After I finish this book, I have to do a quick re-read of The Wedding by Julie Garwood for my book club this weekend and then I’m going to jump into Hard Cherish by Nalini Singh.

This is me, reuniting with all of my books…

Casee: I’ve actually finished two books since last Friday. Whoop! I can’t believe how much reading helps my stress levels. Honestly, how could I forget?

I discovered a new-to-me author, Laura Kaye. I’m reading Ride Rough which is the second book in her Raven Riders MC series. Her backlist is long and I’m really looking forward to glomming her.

Holly: I didn’t have a lot of reading time this week. I finished Bountiful by Sarina Bowen and reread Archangel’s Consort by Nalini Singh. I’m feeling kind of blah about contemporary romance right now. I may try a historical next.

Rowena: I still haven’t really gotten into the swing of reading anything. Not after the way that my Dodgers lost the World Series. 🙁 Oh well. I’m reading, I’m just reading really slowly. I’m making slow progress through Changing the Game by Jaci Burton and so far, it’s pretty good.

Casee: I’m still reading Hello Again by Brenda Novak and I still don’t care that I’m still reading it. I’m reading! I’m on a road trip so I expect to finish it this weekend and I can start new-to-me author Laura Kaye.

Holly: I finished the Rock Chick series with Rock Chick Reckoning and Rock Chick Reawakening. While I enjoyed certain aspects of each book, the series will never be my favorite. Then I read Radiance, Eidolon and A Matter of Trust by Grace Draven, a historical fantasy series. I adored Radiance and liked Eidolon, but it was much darker than the first. The change in tone was somewhat unexpected since the first book was a lighter read. A Matter of Trust is a short story that follows Radiance. It was cute. I enjoyed both full-length books and the novella, but I’m not quite ready to start the Master of Crows series, which is set in the same world.

I need a break and a palate cleanser so I’m reading Bountiful by Sarina Bowen.

Rowena: I can’t believe that we’ve been doing this feature for 401 weeks. We’ve been doing this for quite a while now. We’ve read hella books, too. 🙂 This week, it’s still a slow reading week for me because, at my house, the World Series has taken over. My Dodgers are playing and we’re hoping to bounce back from that game on Wednesday.

I was reading Hate to Want You by Alisha Rai but I’m not focusing on it so it’s taking a long time to read it so I think I’m going to put it down for now and read a baseball romance. Maybe that will be my ticket to focusing on reading since I’ve got baseball fever right now. I’m starting Changing the Game (Play by Play #2) by Jaci Burton. Wish me luck!

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!
