Whatcha Reading? (49)

A new Saturday post where you can share with us what you are currently (or just finished) reading and I will share my brief thoughts on books that I read during the previous week.

May 29th - June 4th:


-- Sleepless in Manhattan by Sarah Morgan --

Such a charming, fun read; the romance was great (heroine is little sister to the hero's best friend, so there's that Oh No We Can't battle), but I also loved the focus on the three women and their friendship, the new business they opened, and just living in NYC. I'm a small town country girl, and that's where I'm comfortable, but I do enjoy reading about NYC and other big city lives even if I don't want to go there, you know? Anyway, great start to the series, I'm looking forward to both Frankie's story (next up) and Eva's story. I'll have a full review up June 6th. 4 STARS

-- Him by Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy -- 

Perfect. Just perfect. I'm so glad I finally picked up this book. I remember the buzz when it came out, and yes, it lived up to it completely! I listened on audio, and the two narrators did a fantastic job as well; I had no complaints at all about their narration of the story. 5 star story + 5 star narration = double win!

Loved Ryan and Jamie, and their journey to find out if they could be more than just childhood friends. I thought Jamie's coming to terms with his bisexuality was also done well. The chemistry was off the charts, as was the sex. I also loved the humor that would pop up throughout. I honestly can't think of anything "negative" to point out about this one, so I'm giving it a solid 5 STARS.

Favorite quote:

My weakness is him.  

How about one more, just because?

I’ve been walking around with a hollow chasm in my chest where my heart used to be.

But that gaping hole is full again. My heart is back, because Jamie is here.

And he fucking loves me.

-- Raw Redemption by Tessa Bailey --

Oh man. Dirty-smutty-goodness ahoy! Like you'd expect anything less from Bailey. :) I'll have a full review up June 9th! 4 STARS

Favorite quote:

"I like that you're so much bigger than me. I like that you ask permission...but you don't really need it," Ailish said, her voice lacing in between the shower spray. "Can I climb up and get closer to your mouth? It doesn't seem fair that you're always having to bend down."

FYI: The kiss a page or so later is completely UNF.

-- Ink Enduring by Carrie Ann Ryan --

A quick read for me, I liked it. Definitely chemistry in this triad. I'll have a review up June 10th
3 1/2 STARS

"You take no shit, I'm guessing."

"If I did, I'd have to give a shit."
