I have combined these two in a Weekly Wrap-up post because I’m a lazy butt.
Thanks to Bookish Owlette for the idea of a FOLLOW TRAIN to support my fellow bloggers (and it would be wrong not to say that you’re helping me too). Drop a comment that you followed and I’ll follow back. See? Easy-peasy. The follow button is to the right!
BOOKS I BOUGHT
I was somewhat reasonable this week. Somewhat.
- Pestilence by Laura Thalassa and Long Shot by Kennedy Ryan are new releases. The cover is just beautiful and it’s still only $2.99 in case you’re interested!
- Accidentally on Purpose, Tempt the Boss, The Legend of Lyon Redmond and Beneath the Truth were all bargains.
ARCS I RECEIVED
Henry Harris was living his dream as a staff sergeant in the Marines. When he’s killed in action, his devastated family is in for one more shock: he had a daughter they never knew about.
Morgan Riley has been raising Etta on her own, and that’s always been fine by her – until Henry’s brother Trevor arrives on her doorstep, willing to do anything to help and make up for his brother’s mistakes. Their attraction feels wrong, but Morgan can’t seem to turn him away.
Trevor is suddenly in too deep. He has always wanted a family, but Etta and Morgan come with complications. Yet as Etta brings them closer together, Trevor begins to imagine giving Morgan and Etta the life his brother never could. But he wonders if Morgan will ever learn to trust another man with her heart, especially a man whose last name is Harris.
I have never read this author but I heard from book friends that they love Nicole Jacquelyn so when this popped up on Netgalley I couldn’t resist and grabbed it.
Lennon McCartney is not a broken man. Because being broken implies being whole once. When a horrific accident deprives him of the one thing he loves—his talent as a fierce and explosive drummer—Lennon is left with a life chained by an abusive mother, by crushing guilt over a tragic past. A life he doesn’t want.
Dr. Georgia Starr is a legend. She’s one of the most successful neurosurgeons in the world, coming from a long-line of respected New York doctors. Her life is built around solving complex medical cases in order to bring relief and hope to sick children. But the one problem she can’t solve is how to live her life. How to be shake loose the burden of being her elitist, arrogant father’s daughter. How to be free.
Can a man who despises his life and a woman who desperately needs to live find the answers, and love, with each other?
And I couldn’t withstand the call of this one. I love a good rock star romance and this sounds right down my alley! And those are all the books I got this week. Incredible huh?
Thank you to St. Martin’s Press and Forever Romance.
I was supposed to post the new Goodreads meme I found but I got home late from work on Monday so my plans were thwarted. Then I thought, oh well, you have your WWW Wednesday post. Alas, I’d felt exhausted and a little like somebody had put me through a grinder so I went to bed.Turns out, I have the flu. Still do. Still have a headache and I’m running a fever so I’ll try to keep this sexy and short.
I posted two reviews:
- What a Difference a Duke Makes by Lenora Bell which was underwhelming but I’ve read worse.
- The Dom Who Loved Me by Lexi Blake. She’s a favorite of mine but some things just didn’t work for me but I’ve been told the next ones are superb. I love her mix of suspense and romance
I posted a little opinion piece:
- How The Romance Genre Empowers – this as actually born from my frustration about people belittling the romance genre. And when Penguin’s video landed in my inbox I jumped at the idea of writing a short article about it.
I have finished reading and reviewing three books but two of them aren’t due soon so they’ll go live on the blog in April. The other one is The Last King by Katee Robert, which I loved.
Busy busy busy.
I’m only making tentative plans since I’m not sure yet how fit I’ll be.
- The Last King by Katee Robert – review will go up next week. Since that one is done it’ll definitely happen
- I’ll be reading the next in the Masters & Mercenaries series by Lexi Blake so the review should also go live next week
- I’m already deep into April releases with my ARCs so next I’m starting Midnight Wolf by Jennifer Ashley
AUDIOBOOKS TO REVIEW
Thanks to the author for offering these two audiobooks. Jacob Morgan/Zachary Webber can read the phone book and I’ll listen, he’s that good. Plus it’s a rock star romance and I said before how much I love those!
That’s it. I’ll soon head back to bed. I apologize for a slight delay responding to comments in advance!
