Whatcha Reading? (72)

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.

November 6th - 12th:


-- Take Me Home by Lorelie Brown --

My first F/F read (not including menage/orgy scenes in other books) and I very much enjoyed this. The cover grabbed me first on NG. Quick and cute. Heroine needs a girlfriend to take to Thanksgiving dinner and finds a tattoo artist who is more than happy to help. There's also a very adorable puppy involved. 4 Stars

Favorite quote:

“I think any lesbian who figures out how to bottle up what they’ve got would make a million bucks.” She nestles against my side, her chin on her fist and elbow above my shoulder. 

“They’re called vibrators.” I twirl a lock of her hair around my finger. It’s so fucking vibrant. “Billion-dollar industry.” 

“Good, but not the same.” 

She leans down and licks me from the top of my stomach, through my cleavage, all the way to my sternum. I give a choking, gurgling gasp. “Fuck. Okay, I get your point.” 

“There’s something about girls. About women. We’re amazing. Beautiful and special and different and something altogether made of miracles.” 

“I like that. Lesbians, made of miracles.” 

“Like girl juices are the Gatorade of the sex world.”

-- The Luckiest Lady in London by Sherry Thomas -- [Audiobook, Library]

I really liked this one. I admit, the beginning was a bit slow for me, but then things picked up. The heroine is very much curious about exploring her sexuality, and I always appreciate that, especially in HR. The sex isn't the most explicit -- occasionally going a bit purple prose-ish, actually -- but it's still pretty damn hot and pops up more than a few times. :) The hero had his jerk moments when he begins to fear catching feels (of course) but he made up for it later. Overall, a solid read. Audio narration was pretty good as well. 4 Stars

-- Hold Me, Cowboy by Maisey Yates --

I loved the beginning of this one. The set up is fun, the hero and heroine do not like each other. Heroine has weekend plans at a cabin with a man she met (plans on breaking her celibacy reign) but snow happens and the guy can't get through and there's no electricity at her cabin . . . but there is next door, and who's staying there but the hero? After they agreed to ignore their dislike of each other and enjoy the weekend, I felt like things start to drag. To be fair, I was reading this during the election and . . . well, I wasn't in the mood to read anything, or rather my mind wouldn't shut off enough for me to do so. Even so, this was a quick holiday read, but I didn't love it as much as the previous Yates I read. I think it might also be due to this one being a category (Desire) while the other book I read was not. 3 Stars

Favorite quote:

No, she had no interest in love and marriage. But she had abundant interest in orgasms. So much interest.
