Happy Monday!!! I can’t believe July is almost over. This summer is just flying by, but I’m having very good reading luck these days, and tomorrow’s big release day is going to be awesome (Kristen Ashley!!!). 😉
<— P.S. I just one-clicked this one!!! 😀 I’m going to start it tonight. I’m so in the mood for it.
Wanna do “Three Things”? Okay I’ll start!
1.) My mom and sister just arrived yesterday and they are spending 3 weeks with me!!! They’ll even be here on my birthday. 😀 YAY ME!
2.) I’m reading “The Perfect Mother” and I’m only a quarter into it but I’m still not sure what I think of it yet… It’s too early to tell, and the frequent POV switch through multiple characters can get confusing. I think Tasha loved it though, and she’s my other book-twin (especially for psych-thrillers), so I’m sticking with it.
3.) My mom hates vegetables, and always thought she hated “Zoodles” (zucchini that has been spiraled to look like long strands of spaghetti – so we can get our “pasta fix”), but I made her the ultimate bowl last night. Zoodles, covered in homemade meat-spaghetti sauce (very hearty), and melted cheese and parmesan all over it. SHE. LOVED. IT. 🙂 *beams*
4.) Okay I’m cheating here but!!! Kate Stewart’s latest book is LIVE and here’s my Book Review of Someone Else’s Ocean by Kate Stewart!!
LOOK WHAT JUST WENT LIVE !!!
- Dr. Strange Beard (Winston Brothers Book 5) by Penny Reid <— PENNY REID ALERT!! HE GHOSTED HER… “…Ten years after Roscoe Winston dropped out of her life, all Simone Payton wants is to exploit him. She’d also like some answers from her former best friend about why he ghosted her, but if she never gets those answers, that’s a-okay. Simone let go of the past a long time ago. Seriously, she has. She totally, totally has. She is definitely not still thinking about Roscoe. Nope. She’s more than happy to forget he exists. But first, she needs just one teeny-tiny favor . . .”
- Commitment: A Second Chance Romance (Redemption Book 1) by T.K. Leigh <— HIS SISTER’S BEST FRIEND… “…When the man she’s been dating proposes, she thinks it’s exactly what she needs to finally close this chapter of her life. After all, over sixteen years have passed since she gave Andrew Brinks her heart, only for him to destroy it. Why should that matter now? But it matters to Drew. When he learns of her engagement, he realizes he has a decision to make...”
- Indeed by Amabel Daniels
- Tainted Heartbreak (Tainted Knights Book 3) by Terri Anne Browning <— TERRI ANNE BROWNING ROCK STAR ALERT!! “...Cash Graves. I knew the name, even if it was a newer one to the rock world. He’s the bassist for Tainted Knights, the band who was making huge splashes in the music world. Their newest hit was all over the radio and currently on repeat on my playlist … and I just spit my margarita all over him. With a wink and a smile, he should have gotten on stage and let me go on with my life, if a little star struck over the delicious rocker…“
- Playboy by Katy Evans <— THE LATEST BY KATY EVANS IS LIVE!!! And it CAN be read as a standalone! “…I discovered who he was: Gambler. Famous playboy. Silver-eyed player who never plays to lose. …And my best friend’s soon-to-be brother in law, Cullen Carmichael. He needed a good luck charm, I needed a distraction. So we made a gamble and set off for Vegas—but pretty soon—I was in too deep…”
Erica: Oh my goodness! Reviews are saying Remi has been “dethroned” and losing his spot in reader hearts over Cullen. I have to see if this is true!
Lisa M: Playboy!!!! Perfect for a Sunday afternoon read!!! Can’t wait to get started!!! Love Katy Evans books!!
- Piper: A Last Score Spin Off by K.L. Shandwick
- Filthy Lies (Blackstone Dynasty Book 2) by Raine Miller <— RAINE MILLER ALERT!! HE’S HIDING SOMETHING FROM HER… “...I knew I loved him.

He’s also hiding something from me…”

- Butterface (A Hot Romantic Comedy) (The Hartigans) by Avery Flynn <— SHE DOESN’T KNOW WHY HE’S PRETENDING THAT THEY’RE DATING… “…It’s true. I’m not what most people would call “pretty” and, well, high school was rough. Fast forward ten years and life is good… Until a bunch of jerks think it’s hilarious to put the “butterface” (AKA me) on a wedding Kiss Cam with the hottest guy ever—and that old humiliation hits hard. I recognize him immediately. The sexiest cop in Waterbury and totally out of my league…”
