It's about 7pm and I walk into the office:
Me: Are you going to be on the computer long?
Hubby: No, not long.
Me: I thought you said you weren't gonna be on there that long. Are you going to be much longer?
Hubby: No. (a man of few words, my husband)
Me: Just tell me, are you gonna be on there all night?
Hubby: Chill Trac, I'll be off soon.
I finally gave up trying. At 11:30pm he walks into the bedroom
Me: I thought you weren't gonna be on there all night.
Hubby: I wasn't *looks at clock* there's still a 1/2 hour of night left.
Hubby: I love you too, baby.
So - I'm behind and it's all his fault! lol Anyway - I now have coffee in me so I'm ready to post!
First up was Long Hard Ride by Lorelei James. I really liked this book. At first I thought that it was going to really annoy me. When Colby is telling Channing “da rules” and says “you will get me off any time I want” I was like – whoa buddy. And I hate the word tits. Lol I don’t know why – it bugs me. When someone is saying it in a degrading way it doesn’t seem to bother me cuz normally those people are scum of the earth and have no brain. But when the hero is saying it to the heroine – it just annoys me. But it end it didn’t have any effect on how much I enjoyed the story so I easily let those things drop. It really was done well. I’m looking forward to reading the next book in the series. (warning: this story does have an HEA but there is menage action as well as a littl m/m)
Next up was The Night Before the Wedding by Debra Mullins. This was a historical but with a paranormal twist. There's a curse on 2 Scottish families from centuries back. The clans chief of the MacBraedon's must always marry the "marked" woman from the Farlan family. The one female from Farlan family that has a dagger birthmark. If the MacBraedon does not marry The Bride then both families lands will suffer greatly and the Farlan woman will go mad. This was a great story. I loved that the hero was going to do anything he could to get his bride, but he was doing it for a noble cause so his caveman type attitude was easily overlooked. And for all that the heroine thought she was going mad and was resisiting the MacBraedon she was also kind and giving. They sound sappy - but they weren't at all. Good book.
Next up was With Love by J.L. Langley. This was a novella - the start of the With or Without series and a great m/m werewolf story. I didn't love Laine - he was a little too giggly for me. (I wouldn't have liked it in a female either). But I really liked Dev, his mate, and I thought the story was a great set up for the rest of the series - which I'm very much looking forward to reading.
Next up Breaking the Silence by Katie Allen. A story about a solitary man who sees a woman walking her dog every day and finally decides to talk to her. He's painfully shy and isn't quite sure what to do. I thought he was almost too freakily shy, but I really began to enjoy his character after a while. I really enjoyed Jenny's character as well. She was just fun-loving and just the kind of person you'd want as your friend.
Biting Nixie by Mary Hughes was next. See review below.
Demon's Hunger by Eve Silver was my next read. I'll be doing a review The Book Binge so keep your eyes peeled. Let me just say that I liked it better than the last one.
The Long Way Home by Z.A. Maxfield was my next book. This was a very interesting m/m story about a police detective and a psychic coming together. It had a slower pace than I normally like in my books but it was still very good. I liked it.
Last but not least a novella that has 4 short stories in it. What Legends Are Made Of by Heather Beck. Again, read this for The Book Binge so keep your eyes peeled for the review.
