Whatcha Reading? (57)

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.

July 24th - 30th:


-- All Note Long by Annabeth Albert --

Loved getting Michelin and Lucky's story. Fair amount of conflict (and angst from that conflict) but also sweet and sexy. I'll have a full review up Monday! 4 STARS

Favorite quote:

"What do your friends call you?"


"And the guys you . . . date?" She might as well have made air quotes around "date" for all the credibility she gave the word.

"My boyfriends call themselves lucky. Me they tend to call 'Oh, god, please'."

-- Burn Down the Night by M. O'Keefe --

I finished this Wednesday and I'm STILL in a Great Post-Book High. Such an amazing book that gave me so many feels, was sexy AF, and captured my full attention. I'll have a (hopefully more coherent) review up August 5th! 5 STARS

Favorite quote:

The black ink of his tattoos stood out in vivid relief and I nearly reached down to touch the swirl beneath the words "Brothers In Arms" beneath his collar bone. Like it might be soft.

Like one of those touch and feel books from the library when I was a kid.

Feel the soft little bunny.

Feel the dangerous biker.

-- The Hotter You Burn by Gena Showalter -- [Audiobook]

Another library find.

I didn't like this one as much as book 1, though I really wanted to because Beck was a notorious player and flirt. But there were a few things that I didn't care for -- or believe. Like the fact that this small town, named Strawberry Valley of all things, all hated Harlow enough to let her live in a tent for nearly a year after her mom died. That they treated her like shit, just because she was a bitch as a teen (and she was -- though she had a "reason" for her actions). But what got me was that when Beck and Harlow hit a rough patch and he threw her out, they AGAIN allowed her to live on the streets for two weeks. Not just Beck, which was such an asshole move, but also Harlow's new "friends" (and fellow heroines from other books). I say "friends" because they didn't act it at this point. If my friend was kicked out by her boyfriend(ish) and I knew she used to live on the street before him, I'd be helping her before the guy's door shut behind her. Instead, no one could find her. For two weeks. In. A. Small. Ass. Town. *side eyes* Bullshit.

Otherwise, I still liked this book -- fun moments, sexy moments, love the three guys' friendship, etc -- and will be continuing the series. Once again it was a good audio listen too, with the same narrator as book 1. 3 STARS

-- Boyfriend Material by K.A. Mitchell --

A quick read (92 pages) that continues Ethan and Wyatt's story (review), this time from Wyatt's POV. I really liked it. Full review August 2nd. 3 1/2 STARS
