Whatcha Reading? (88)

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.

Feb 26th - Mar 4th

Stealing Mr. Right by Tamara Morgan

Kindle | NOOK | Kobo
Releases Tuesday!
Rating = 4 Stars

  • 1st POV, heroine only
  • Alternates between present and past (but it makes sense, I swear!)
  • She's a jewel thief
  • He's FBI
  • Oh, and they're married. Yeah.
  • Fun start to a new series
    • Not a cliffhanger, it is HEA but it's book 1 of 3 for them
    • Can't wait for the next book
      • I hear Grant's POV will be included which makes me really happy!

Stuck-Up Suit by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward

Kindle | NOOK | Kobo
Audiobook from Overdrive
Narrators =  Joe Arden and Maxine Mitchell
Narration rating = 3 Stars
Rating = 2 Stars

  • Premise to start out with sounded good and fun
  • First part of the book was okay -- a few minor things, but overall I was liking it
  • Then the manipulative evil ex and secret baby came in and it spiraled down from there
  • Often really wanted to throw something at the characters
  • Clueless hero
  • Heroine went from feisty to spineless and annoying
  • Did I mention I hated the ex?
  • Narrator: Female was okay, no complaints; male was annoying with his pauses and sounded a bit creepy, did not like or add to the story favorably

Review going up Monday!

Insight by Santino Hassell

Kindle | NOOK | Kobo
Releases Mar 13th!
Rating = 4 Stars

  • 1st POV
  • Hero 1, Nate, has psychic powers
  • Hero 2, Trent, is a void (no powers)
  • Nate's twin, Theo, suddenly dies in NYC after Nate gets a vision of his death
    • Nate takes off to NYC to find out what happened, he knows it wasn't suicide
    • Meets Trent, who gives him the ride to NYC
  • Good new world being built here
    • I did feel the first bit was a bit slow in the pacing, and really things didn't pick up to a nice speed until the last 30% or so
    • Very curious to know more about the Community and all the secrets that are being hidden
  • Mystery, suspense, PNR
  • The connection between Nate and Trent is relatively quick, and I wish we had his POV as well as Nate's, but I still enjoyed it as is
    • Still hot, because Hassell
  • Holden's story is next and his partner is a "tattooed lumbersexual with a man-bun and a steely gaze" UM YES PLEASE
