Okay, so I’ve recently put down a couple of books I’ve started (good books but just not holding my attention in my current state) and I also have a few reviews I’m working on at the same time. Unfortunately, due to my recent encounter with those evil butt-kicking Canadian cooties (read: flu virus) during my trip to Canada last week, my medicine head is preventing me from being coherent long enough to get anything finished both reading and writing-wise.
The only good thing about feeling like this is that I get plenty of uninterrupted reading time, in bed. All cozy with my warm and fuzzy pajamas, and all the time in the world now, to read. Thing is, I keep conking out.
But I figured I’d let you in to the three books I’ve started. Yes. THREE. I’m usually one to start and finish each book before I move onto the next, but those cooties have me all discombobulated, and I’m actin’ crazy!!
READING RIGHT NOW (fell asleep reading this one, and will be getting right back to it as soon as I’m done with this little update): Dirty by Megan Hart
So far so good. Eloquently written, beautiful introspection and yet… dirty. Somewhat troubled but professional woman meets handsome stranger, but there’s something about “them” that has her confused. Normally she’s a “sex ’em and leave ’em” type (yep, I said SHE). But with him, she can’t get him off of her mind. He seems to feel the same way. I’m curious as to where this is going…
P.S. I’m dying to read another novel from the same author: Broken (this one is calling me….)
And next is the book I was reading at the airport and on the plane over the weekend (and could likely be the cause of my current cootie overload. Whoops! Not the book… LOL!! The airport): Rock Chick by Kristen Ashley
Super steamy read so far (i’m at about 40%) and it made me blush a few times in the airplane and had me glancing over my shoulder to make sure nobody else was reading along with me…. hee hee!!
Already they had an amazing *fight* where he was all insulted by her assumptions of him. Love it when the guy says “get your stuff and get out!”
I dunno why. It just always makes me giddy!
Why did I quit reading it? No reason. I love it plenty so far, I think just all the super-sleuthing was messing with my inability to concentrate, and I set it aside until I’m feeling better.
Coming Undone by Lauren Dane
Real good, I’m plenty into it, but it’s just not rocking my world. And I’ll tell you why. I feel Brody as a bad-boy perfectly until it gets to the “steamy scenes”. Then… well. To be honest? I just don’t see a guy like him saying the stuff he does when getting busy. Already that he’s too wordy, in my opinion, when he’s… you know… ;). Oh sure… some of the stuff he says has me giggling, but not hot and bothered. I’m more “Really? Would a guy actually say that, during THAT?”
So I did the unthinkable. I read a few scenes to my husband. Yep. First he said: “WOW! Now I know what “romance novel” really means.” Eeeeeeeep!! I had to clarify that this was more “erotic” romance. But then he did agree that Brody was a bit too articulate for what the scene called for. But I will certainly finish it as I see a certain female might be up to no good, and I’d like to see how that plays out.
So that’s it guys. Oh yeah. And the reviews I’m working on are for both of the “Neighbor From Hell” novels that I loved so much. Loved ’em both equally, but for different reasons. Each had a unique *feel* for me. Oh and working on the review for Fallen From Grace by Laura Leone. I read this one last year, but it totally deserves a 4 star review, and I’m catching up on it, too.
