Hopefully I’ll be better about organizing my time, reading and being online this week *crosses fingers*.
Since I don’t have much to say I’ll just post a picture of my cat. lol I can’t believe that Echo’s already 11 months old!
So what did I read?
Linda Howard. A really good book that I definitely recommend. You can read my review here. 4 out of 5
Eloisa James called Seduced by the Pirate. This is a companion novella to her novel The Ugly Duchess. In TUD we meet Griffin who is James’s cousin. He got married 14 years ago, didn’t consummate his marriage and now he’s headed home to be a husband. He gets a chilly reception from his wife, which was expected but what wasn’t expected was the fact that she now has 3 children! This was a very cute novella and I enjoyed it a lot. (releases 10/30, I believe) 4 out of 5
Terry Spear. This is the first book in a new series about Jaguar shifters. The story revolves around a brother and sister who are jaguar shifters who are vacationing in the Amazon. The brother, Connor, had saved Kathleen, an Army captain, from certain death a year before and now he’s saving her again when he finds her lost. The sister, Maya, wants a mate for her brother but she also wants family for herself so she turns her into a shifter. The story revolves around the romance, the issues Kat has dealing with being a shifter, getting home to America and escaping from drug lords. It sounds like there’s a lot going on but the story was actually pretty slow. It was an entertaining read but didn’t knock my socks off. 3 out of 5 ( Read for Book Binge)
Josephine Myles was a book that I was really looking forward to – unfortunately it wasn’t working for me and I ended up with a DNF. The story was slow for me and one hero seemed too reticent and one too eager – they just each rubbed me the wrong way. Bummer. DNF
Isabella Bradford was next and this one didn’t work for me at all. I really, really liked the first book in the series, but in this one I didn’t like either the hero or heroine nor the story all that much. The arranged marriage is one of my favorite tropes but in this case it just didn’t work. 1.5 out of 5 (Read for Book Binge)
Stephani Hecht. This is the story of a paramedic James who has a crush on doctor Calvin. Calvin has that same crush but neither one has ever made a move. When they do it’s hot and sexy. Unfortunately James believes that Calvin wouldn’t want anything more than a one night stand. He couldn’t be more wrong. Good novella – liked the characters and the story. 3 out of 5
