Searching for my reading Mojo ….

Searching for my reading Mojo ….

I haven’t reviewed in weeks. It isn’t that I haven’t been reading (boy have I been reading….) but I can’t seem to get out of my re-read cycle! In the last two weeks I’ve reread Cat and Bones (One of my all time favourite UF series), some of the Penny Reid Dating in the City (not all. I really don’t like a few) and I’m on to the O’Kane series by Kit Rocha (I may be here a while guys because….   So what did it? What killed the best reading streak I’ve been on in years? It was a book. Not a bad book, just a meh book. The issue with following so many book bloggers on twitter is that you get caught up in the excitement.

I went into said book thinking ….   I came out thinking …   I… Keep Reading »

Hot Cover Monday : Avoiding the Badge by Dorothy Shaw

JUST WHAT THE DOCTOR ORDERED   Rayna Michaels may be a veterinarian, but she knows a little something about the human heart—especially when it comes to worried pet owners. Law enforcement’s bonds with their K9 partners are legendary, and Derek Hansen is a perfect example—he’s had his dog Axle in more times than she can count in the last few months. And Derek’s sculpted muscles and heart-stopping smile would be truly irresistible, if only he wasn’t an officer of the law… Derek can’t get Rayna’s stunning face and no-nonsense smarts out of his mind. Any excuse to see her will do, until he works up the nerve to ask her out. He’s not sure where her resistance to cops comes from, though he’s more than willing to prove he’s one of the good ones. But when casual dating turns into explosive lovemaking, Derek knows he has to come clean about his past before the woman he loves finds out what he’s been hiding and turns tail to run…

Of course, the plus-sized beauty isn’t interested in romance… but Nik isn’t interested in giving up. Aria Granger has sworn off relationships for her own good.

Hot Cover Monday : Damaged Goods by Talia Hibbert

Hot Cover Monday : Damaged Goods by Talia Hibbert

They fell in love fifteen years ago and never quite fell out again… Laura Burne arrives in Beesley-on-Sea searching for peace, happiness, and safety—not for the teenage sweetheart she left behind. And yet, one moonlit night on the beach, she finds him anyway. Samir may be a man now, but he’s still sexy as sin, still sweet as pie, and still determined to take care of her. The problem is, while he’s remained the same, Laura’s life is forever changed—and not just by the unborn child she carries. She’s on the run from her own personal monster. Her baby’s father. Her husband. There isn’t a man alive who’d take on those complications. So Laura has to remember that just because Samir protects her, and makes her smile, and watches her with something close to hunger in his eyes, it doesn’t mean he wants her… Which is a shame. Because, against all reason and all goddamn common sense, Laura just might want him. Damaged Goods is an interracial romance starring a… Keep Reading »
