Whatcha Reading? (26)

A new Saturday post where you can share with us what you are currently (or just finished) reading and we will share our brief thoughts on books that we read during the previous week but will not be reviewing.

December 20th - 26th: 


-- Dirty Deeds by Megan Erickson --

Love this series (and Erickson's writing in general) and Dirty Deeds was no exception. Posh, British hero and a fiery (mechanic!) heroine = perfect. Between 3 1/2 and 4 STARS

Favorite quote:

“I don’t know if I deserved it. All I know is that you deserve a man who loves and respects you, and that was me. That is me, Alex. Every part of me loves every part of you. And even though this won’t work, even though I know we don’t have a future, I can’t leave with you thinking you gave your heart to someone who didn’t cherish it. I’ll remember all my life that I was worthy enough to have a few weeks of your time.”

-- Woo Me by Karina Bliss --

My first time reading Bliss. I think I'll look into trying more of her books though. A quick read, I did enjoy this one. STARS

-- His Risk to Take by Tessa Bailey --

Another solid (quick) read from Bailey. I do love her dirty talking heroes, and Troy was no exception! :) Between 3 1/2 and 4 STARS

Favorite quote:

“I’m not capable of turning you down,” he said on a pained laugh, gaze devouring her breasts. “I’m going to take you to my bed and pleasure the fuck out of you. But the panties stay on. It’s nonnegotiable.”

Her entire system rebelled against his words. How could he touch her, kiss her like this, and refuse to take it all the way? It didn't make sense. Men didn't have that kind of willpower, did they? She certainly didn’t have that kind of willpower. “W-what? Is it too late to give a different answer about why I changed my mind?”

“Yes. But don’t worry, baby.” Before she could register his intention, he’d swung her up into his arms.

“Even with your panties on, it’ll still be the best sex of your life.”

-- Unwrapping Her Perfect Match by Kat Latham --

A quick holiday read, very enjoyable, sweet and sexy. Who can resist a gentle giant like John?STARS

-- Stranded by HelenKay Dimon --

To be honest, I wasn't very fond of this novella and here's why: I felt lost for most of it. I couldn't keep up with the story playing out -- who tricked who in the past, who did what, who's working for who, and so on. It was all a jumbled mess for me, and that was enough of a distraction to keep me from actually getting into the story. The sex scenes were hot, but that's not enough. Was this a bad read? No. But I wasn't impressed with it, either. I think it might have worked better as a longer story, to allow for enough time to really explain their past, etc. 2.5 STARS

Kame enjoyed it

-- Tied to Trouble by Megan Erickson --



*more incoherent fangirling*

Because Chad and Owen, you guys. *all the hearts*

More coherent review, and favorite quotes, will be posted on Jan 1st! Needless to say, I freakin' loved this book, and there are So. Many. QUOTES. STARS

Favorite quote:

“But how fun was that first time when we competed?” 

He smirked. “I won.” 

Owen smiled and ran a thumb over Chad’s lips. “Mmm, you might have thought you won.” 

“What d’ya mean? You came first!” 

“Yeah,” Owen said softly. “But I got to watch you. You are so fucking hot when you come, Chad. And I got to see it all, right there in front of me, with all my concentration. So I’m thinking I won.”

-- Nowhere Ranch by Heidi Cullinan -- [Audiobook]

More kink than I originally thought, and not all of the kink was what I prefer in my romances, BUT I did like these two men, and Cullinan's writing, and in the end it worked for me. It was a bit slow going at first, but as the story went on, I became more invested in Roe and Travis and seeing them get their HEA.

As always, Iggy did a great job narrating. I hope he does all of Cullinan's audiobooks. 3 1/2  STARS

Favorite quote:

I was feeling like all that crazy sea inside me was settling into a calm. He had drawn it all out of the bottle I kept it in, but when I looked up at him like that, it settled, because if my wild insides were a sea, those gray eyes were the world's biggest fucking bowl, and they held me. Caught me and held me and bore me up.
