Casee: I’m reading At the Pleasure of the President (Perfect Gentlemen #5) by Shayla Black and Lexi Blake. I haven’t had much time to read this week, but when I was able to pick it up for longer than five minutes, I was instantly pulled in. Zack Hayes. Sigh. I also read The Savior (Black Dagger Brotherhood #17) by J.R. Ward this week. Review to come.
I’m listening to More Than Want You (More Than Words #1) by Shayla Black. I don’t have very nice things to say about this book at the moment. If I was a quitter, I would have already DNF’d this book. Alas, I’ve invested too many hours into listening to give up now, but I have a feeling it won’t get much better. I still intend to listen to the second book in the series just to see if this one is a fluke. I really do enjoy Shayla Black.
Holly: I finished Touch of Frost by S.E. Smith. I really loved how capable the heroine was, but the story kind of went off the rails near the 70% mark. Still, I enjoyed it enough to seek out more books by the author in the future. I ended up re-reading the Hidden Legacy series by Ilona Andrews. I finished Burn for Me and White Hot, and I’m almost finished with Wildfire.
I started listening to Better Homes and Hauntings by Molly Harper, but I didn’t get very far before life got in the way. I also started reading American Witch by Thea Harrison, but didn’t get far in that either. I plan to finish both this weekend.
Rowena: This week, I read The Key to Happily Ever After by Tif Marcelo and Fumbled (The Playbook #2) by Alexa Martin. I enjoyed both books though I enjoyed Fumbled more. I adored TK, Poppy, and Ace. They were so much fun to read about and Alexa Martin writes a great romance so I’ll definitely be going back for more.
Now, I’m reading Magic Burns (Kate Daniels #2) by Ilona Andrews and Hook Shot (Hoops #3) by Kennedy Ryan. It’s slow going because I’ve had a bunch of stuff going on this week but so far, I’m enjoying both books. We’ll see how that goes as I keep reading though. I’m hopeful. After this, I plan on reading Frost Burned (Mercy Thompson #11) by Patricia Briggs for my TBR Challenge read for this month. Wish me luck!

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Shelley Shepard Gray’s latest Christmas novel in her Amish of Hart County series.
It’s set to be a white Christmas in Hart County, and Grace King is pet-sitting in a beautiful home with only a difficult dachshund for company. Just as she starts to miss the bustle of her large Amish family, Grace runs into a familiar face. Living right next door is John Michael Miller. He’s a fireman now, but five years ago, he had courted her older sister, then broke her heart. Seeing him again stirs Grace’s anger, but also reminds her of deeper feelings she’s done her best to deny.
The infatuation John Michael once saw in Grace’s eyes is long gone, though his complicated attraction to her remains. He had walked away all those years ago when he realized he was falling in love with the wrong sister. Now, as suspicious fires are set in their community, that’s not an option. Grace dismisses his warnings, and John Michael vows to keep an eye on her. But he can’t help wondering if he’s reconnected with Grace, only to risk losing her again.
Now all John Michael wants for Christmas is to keep Grace safe, in the hopes that they can one day have a future together.
