Whatcha Reading? (June 16th)




Romance News: The Good Edition





My Week

If you follow me on Twitter, you probably know about my utterly shitty week. It all started Sunday night when my grandmother was life-flighted to the city hospital. Tuesday morning we had to make the decision to take her off life support. The rest of the week has been a painful blur of grief and loss, family drama and stress, and a struggle to get everything taken care of, the bulk of which rests solely on my shoulders. I've had a few moments of laughter while going through her things (here and here), and a combo laugh/cry when something I had ordered for her showed up (here). But I'm not going to lie, this week has been rough, and I don't see that ending any time soon. I know many of you understand what I'm going through -- both the loss of someone you love in general, but also specifically losing a beloved grandmother that you were very close to. I haven't been able to reply back to all the messages, but I see them all and I appreciate them so very, very much.

Needless to say, things are a bit up-in-the-air with blog stuff right now. I'm terribly behind on emails, so if you've sent me one, please know that I see it, and will get back to you as soon as I can. I'm still keeping posts going on the blog, partly because that work gives me a bit of an escape from everything else. Even so, don't be surprised if things slow down for a bit, or I miss a post or whatever. I know, I know, "It's okay, take all the time you need, the blog will be here when you're ready." But I can't shut off the part of my brain that is focused on how behind I am with things.


No surprise then that my reading week has been, well, shit. I don't have much time for reading, and even when I do have some free time, I can't seem to concentrate. Hopefully that'll change soon, because I desperately need the escape of my romance novels to get me through this...

Pat's Review: Hot Response

Hot Response by Shannon Stacey
Publisher: Carina Press (May 1, 2018)
Series: Boston Fire, 4
Genre: Contemporary Romance


The men of Boston Fire are back and hotter than ever! Don’t miss this brand-new novel from New York Times bestselling author Shannon Stacey.

Gavin Boudreau lives for the job, but he also believes in “work hard, play harder.” As the youngest guy in Ladder 37, he figures he’s got plenty of time before settling down becomes a priority. Soft, pretty women who aren’t looking for promises are exactly his type, and he’s comfortable with that. Working with a gorgeous EMT isn’t going to change who he is.

The last thing Cait Tasker needs in her personal life is a firefighter whose challenges on-scene have been a thorn in her side from minute one. Her plate’s too full for a man anyway. Back in her childhood home to help her family cope with an unexpected tragedy, she’s got enough to handle without throwing a hot, testosterone-laden fireman into the mix.

As long days on the job lead to long nights together, Gavin and Cait will discover how far temptation can take them—and what happens when the one you thought was all wrong for you turns out to be the person you can’t live without.

Pat's Review: Queen of Diamonds

Remember, since this is a Royal Pick, come back on June 28th for a chance to win an ecopy of your own!



Queen of Diamonds by Sandra Owens
Publisher: Sandra Owens (June 5, 2018)
Series: Aces and Eights, 4
Genre: Romantic Suspense


Looking for a family she never knew… She finds a love she never expected.

For Kinsey Landon, learning that she has three brothers was the shock of a lifetime. Finding out her brothers are the owners of the biker bar took shock to a whole new level. She goes to Aces and Eights, and deciding against introductions, Kinsey leaves—but not before locking eyes with a man so sexy he could make a saint want to sin. When he shows up at Kinsey’s job and invites her to lunch, she sees it as an opportunity to learn about her brothers, not to mention spending time with a handsome man. But there’s more than good looks to Rand. A sadness so deep, she’s not sure anything can heal him. Not even love.

FBI agent Rand Stevens is outside his comfort zone. Undercover as a hard-living biker who co-owns the bar is testing his acting skills. But pretending he’s not attracted to the Gentry brothers’ kid sister will earn him an Academy Award…if he could ignore the attraction. The heat between Rand and Kinsey is explosive but Rand doesn’t want a relationship. The breakup of his marriage hurt, but the death of his little girl left him broken, and he won’t risk heartbreak again. Even though Kinsey makes him feel alive again, he ignores his feelings for her…until the unthinkable happens. Now Rand only has one chance to save Kinsey…before it’s too late
