As I said yesterday...Merry Christmas. I hope you all had a great day and got everything your little hearts desired. I had a loud yet wonderful day with my family and we ate and played Fact or Crap and ate some more and opened gifts and laughed and it just showed me how much I love them. The girls were quite happy with their day as my oldest got the iPod nano she wanted and my youngest got a trampoline - both from Santa of course...among other things.
I was off today and thank heavens I was because it's taken me all freakin day to recover from Saturday and Sunday. lol Between getting everything ready and cleaning the house for guests I was exhausted! lol
I didn't read much last week and mostly shorter books which I think is pretty normal for me for the week before Christmas but this is what I read:
Unshakeable Faith by Lisa Worrall was first. I reviewed this last week. It was the story of a bartender and the amnesiac he takes into his life and his heart then loses when the man recovers his memory. The book was very good and I really liked it. You can read my review here. 4 out of 5
Next up was One Wicked Night by Kelly Jamieson that I read for The Book Binge. This had Tyler and his best friend and fuck buddy, Nick, returning to their home town for Tyler's sister's wedding. They run into Kaelin who is considered a "very good girl" a moniker that Kaelin despises. She initiates a threesome and falls for the men. It was a good menage story but had some odd aspects to it as well. I'll let you know when my review posts. 3.75 out of 5
Apparently I was into reading books that began with One and ended with Night because my next read was One Perfect Night by Rachael Johns. This was about a woman who ends up playing the part of a girlfriend to her bosses family so that they'll stop bugging him about dating since he's a widower. The pair end up in bed but then their casual affair turns into so much more. I really liked the book but the hero really bugged me at first. It was the story of discovery for the man but it took so long it was a bit frustrating. I really liked the heroine and wanted her to be happy so in the end it all worked out for me. lol 3.5 out of 5
The Cross of Love by Barbara Cartland was a free download from All Romance eBooks last year (I think) so I picked it up. The story was about the vicar's daughter who becomes the housekeeper for the local Earl after her father dies. They fall in love but must defeat the evil man who is determined to marry his daughter to the Earl. It was a cute, kind of cheesy read with a lot of melodrama but a short and quick. 3 out of 5
My Book Binge reviews that posted last week:
Holiday Kisses by Jaci Burton, Shannon Stacey, HelenKay Dimon and Alison Kent
Happy Reading and Happy Holidays!!
