What Are You Reading? (+ Autographed Contemporary Giveaway)

Posted March 23, 2018 by Rowena in Features, Giveaways | 5 Comments


Casee: I finished a book! I read Covert Game by Christine Feehan this week. I just adore the GhostWalker series. I think I was reading it last week (who remembers that far back?) and really got into it. I just need to accept that it takes me longer to read now. The days of reading 10+ books a month are over for me. I decided to stick with Feehan for now and am reading Shadow Keeper.

Holly: It was a sad reading week for me. Nothing I started really worked for me. I ended up re-reading For You and Sweet Dreams by Kristen Ashley. I tried to listen to Sweet Dreams in audio, but I don’t think KA books are for me in audio. There’s way too much fluff that I skim while reading (especially re-reading). It was 25 hours. 25! Ain’t nobody got time for that.

Then I finally read Dark Desires by Eve Silver (it’s free for Kindle right now!) and The Woman Left Behind by Linda Howard, both of which I really enjoyed. Now that I’m finally reading new books again, I’m going to dive into my review pile. First up is The Darkling Bride. I’m determined to finish it today.

Rowena: It’s been slow going for me on the reading front. This week, I only read Bayou Moon by Ilona Andrews. Instead of reading, I’ve been spending time with my nephew that is here from Utah. Time is ticking away until he returns home and I’m opting to watch Moana a million times with him instead of read.

I did pick up Jockblocked by Jen Frederick to read for my book club on Monday and I’m about halfway through that. After this re-read, I’ll be reading The Love Coupon by Ainslie Paton and then Hot Response by Shannon Stacey.

Permission To Approach

According to Judge Bennett Walker, trying to kill him is a dumb idea. They might make him wear a big black nightgown to work, but it covers a lot of muscles, and he's definitely packing beneath it. He's also an ex-prosecutor and an ex-GI Joe. So when his brother brings in Callie Robbins to protect him, Ben has a few issues. First, he doesn't need a bodyguard. Second, she's a 130-pound girl--more smoking hot than smoking gun. And third, what if his body wants her guarding the night shift?

Callie has no problem brushing aside Ben's disbelief. She left the FBI to escape the boys' club, but she can be deeper undercover and twice as lethal as any beefy John Doe. As for whether someone's after Bennett or not, the death threats and car bombs look pretty convincing to Callie. Of course, she might get distracted, sitting inches from the sexiest judge in DC for ten hours a day. Keeping him safe is no picnic. Keeping it professional--that might be impossible.

"She's a delight!"--Christina Dodd

"So smart, sexy and fast paced. I devour her stories."--Lori Foster

    Some recent reads here ~

     –- enjoyed Shadow’s Edge: Psychic Detective Mysteries by S.C. Wynne, a mystery romance featuring two men one of whom is (surprise!) a psychic.  There were a few elements that strained credulity, but overall it was a fun story (if you look past the fact that a number of young men were getting killed).
    –quite enjoyed A Closed and Common Orbit (Wayfarers)  by Becky Chambers which is the second in a series and plan to continue reading more by this author.  I found this book to be very different than the first book; it had a far less complex storyline.  I think it could stand alone. 
    —  an older Mary Balogh story “The Forbidden Daffodils”  in a collection of historical romances entitled Blossoms; it was a pleasant read.
    — the contemporary male/male romance Loud and Clear by Aidan Wayne.  This could be described as a sweet romance.
    — the male/male contemporary story Standby by Kim Fielding.  I like this author’s works; however, this one fell short of my favorites.  Incidentally, a compilation of other stories by the author is currently free for Kindle readers: The Sacrifice and Other Stories
    by Kim Fielding, https://www.amazon.com/Sacrifice-Other-Stories-Kim-Fielding-ebook/dp/B0180W71RY/ref=la_B006FN2T78_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1521910607&sr=1-1&refinements=p_82%3AB006FN2T78
     — continued my reading of Emma Jameson’s Lord and Lady Hetheridge series with Black & Blue (Lord and Lady Hetheridge Mystery Series Book 4) and Blue Blooded (Lord & Lady Hetheridge Mystery Series Book 5). I am now up to date with the series with the exception of book two.   (The first book in the series Ice Blue (Lord and Lady Hetheridge Mystery Series Book 1) remains free to Kindle readers.)  I’d recommend reading this series in order.
    — re-read Anne Bishop’s Lake Silence (The World of the Others) which I enjoyed once again.
    — a quick non-fiction book that I enjoyed: Do Geese See God?: A Palindrome Anthology  by William Irvine with illustrations by Steven Guarnaccia

    I recently finished Love Me Whole by Nicky James. One of the characters has dissociative identity disorder. I can’t imagine what it’s like to live with DID, because just reading about it made me emotionally exhausted.
