What Are You Reading? (+ Alisha Rai Giveaway)

Posted August 17, 2018 by Holly in Features, Giveaways | 5 Comments


Casee: I’m just finishing up Cry Wolf by Patricia Briggs. I didn’t have a lot of time to read last week because I was getting my son ready to move to college. I think I literally have two pages left. I’m going to read Cross Breed by Lora Leigh next. I’m really curious how Cassie’s story turns out.

I’m also waiting on the first Harry Potter book in audio from my library. I never got into the craze as everyone else did and I’m super curious about the books.

Holly: I haven’t had a lot of dedicated reading time this week. I want to read, and in fact I’m in the middle of four books, but I just haven’t had time. It’s depressing.

I’m currently reading The Duke with the Dragon Tattoo by Kerrigan Byrne, When a Scot Ties the Knot by Tessa Dare and Herons Landing by JoAnn Ross. I’m also listening to Wanderlust by Lauren Blakely. I DNF’d The Bourbon Kings by J.R. Ward. I managed to slog through 30+ chapters. If I were close to the end I’d probably finish it, because I want to know if my thoughts about where the plot is heading are right, but there’s still 20 chapters to go. I just can’t.

I did manage to read Diamond Fire by Ilona Andrews, though. It was so good. I can’t wait for the next book (fall 2019!).

Rowena: I got some good reading in this week so I’m one happy camper. I finished up Down with Love by Kate Meader and while I enjoyed it, there were some things that annoyed me about both the hero and the heroine but I am looking forward to the next book in the series. Yay for Lucas! After that, I started listening to When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon at work. It’s a good way to get some reading in while I’m at the office but it also takes forever. I’m enjoying what I’m reading so far even though Dimple is aggressive as hell. I do adore Rishi though. I also read Diamond Fire by Ilona Andrews already because, I couldn’t help myself. I adored that and am so looking forward to more Catalina and Leo and Arabella and just seeing them grow into their powers. Woot!

Right now, I’m reading When a Duke Loves a Woman by Lorraine Heath and I’m loving it. I love Thorne and I adore Gillie so I’m going to finish this one up pretty quickly then I’ll be moving on to Two Weeks Notice by Whitney G.

Happy reading, everyone!

One night. No one will know.

That was the deal. Every year, Livvy Kane and Nicholas Chandler would share one perfect night of illicit pleasure. The forbidden hours let them forget the tragedy that haunted their pasts—and the last names that made them enemies.

Until the night she didn’t show up.

Now Nicholas has an empire to run. He doesn’t have time for distractions and Livvy’s sudden reappearance in town is a major distraction. She’s the one woman he shouldn’t want . . . so why can’t he forget how right she feels in his bed?

Livvy didn’t come home for Nicholas, but fate seems determined to remind her of his presence—and their past. Although the passion between them might have once run hot and deep, not even love can overcome the scandal that divided their families.

Being together might be against all the rules . . . but being apart is impossible.

    Casee, I hope the college move goes/went well.
    Holly, I too gave up on the Bourbon Kings.
    Rowena, I look forward to hearing your thoughts on When Dimple Met Rishi.

    Recent reads here ~

    — News of the World by Paulette Jiles for my book group. I found this a quick and enjoyable read, and I look forward to my group’s discussion.
    — re-read with pleasure Lyn Gala’s Assimilation, Love, and Other Human Oddities and Affiliations, Aliens, and Other Profitable Pursuits,
    — three dog themed romances:  M.L. Buchman’s Off the Leash (White House Protection Force, book 1) plus Most Eligible Billionaire by Annika Martin (I enjoyed parts of this book and laughed aloud at one scene, but I also had issues with some of the hero’s behavior).
    — Courtney Milan’s historical romance After the Wedding. Overall, I enjoyed it, but I did feel as though it could have been a bit shorter.

    @Holly – I enjoyed The Bourbon Kings. Everyone was dysfunctional and the murder mystery wound up being implausible, but it was still an interesting read.

    I read How To Keep a Secret by Sarah Morgan. It was good. I didn’t think I’d like her change in writing direction, but there was still enough romance in the book.
