What a week!
It was a fabulous reading week to say the least. There wasn't one I read that I didn't really like and most I loved - that's a very rare thing as far as I'm concerned.
Then there was the start of the DIK Ladies blog which has been brain fryingly wonderful. You can visit there daily for info on a different DIK lady starting tomorrow. Then soon we'll be talking about our DIK book picks as well as our DIK hero picks and then visits from some fabulous authors (check the right side of the blog for the current author schedule) who'll do the same. Should be a ton of fun!
So onto the books...
I started off with Wicked Game - you can check out the review I did last week for further details but let me say it's definitely worth the read.
After reading about vampires I wanted to move on to something that was the polar opposite so I then read The Lost Duke of Wyndham. What a great book! I truly loved Grace and Jack. And some of those tender thoughts that Jack had? OMG - so stinkin romantic. This was my first book by Julia Quinn but it certainly won't be my last.
Ok so I'd done Vamps and a historical so I figured I'd delve back into the contemporary world of the Troubleshooters again with The Defiant Hero by Suzanne Brockmann. I kind of figured that since I had liked the first book so much that it liking just couldn't continue. Well it definitely proved me wrong! It was a wonderful book and again loved moving through time with Eve's stories of her past with Ralph to the problems with Nilsson & Meg. I also freakin loooooved the subplot with Starrett & Alyssa Locke - I mean, how could you not? Can hardly wait to read more of the stories of Team Sixteen.
A Lady in Waiting by Samantha Kane was a nice novella in the middle of the week. It was a good story with lots of hot sexin - oh yeah baby. There was one part at the end that was little disappointing but after talking to a friend and hearing that she actually really liked that part - I have to question myself! lol You can read an excerpt here.
My big SQUEEEEE for the week was an ARC that I received for Hostage to Pleasure by Nalini Singh. Holy cow and oh.my.god. I loved, loved, loved this book. I loved Dorian before this book and now I'm even happier that he's in my hut on the DIK island. What an amazingly wonderful man...who's fuckin HOT!!! Oh yeah, the heroine was good too I think. HAHA! Just kidding. The book was great, the romance was great, I love Nalini's work and I will definitely be reading it again when it releases in September.
My last book of the week was The Assignment by Evangeline Anderson. This was m/m fiction and I loved it. Nick and Sean are cops, partners, best friends. Nick has discovered that he's in love with Sean. Their current assignment is to infiltrate a gay resort to catch a coke dealer. What follows is hot, hot, hot...but parts are so touching and loving it was amazing. I'm definitely looking forward to reading more of E.A's work!
