I'm looking for a new book so thought I'd peruse what you all are reading.

I finished this over the weekend The Kent Brothers Trilogy: All She Wants For Christmas, A Rare Gift, The Best Thing
Author: Jaci Burton and enjoyed all three.

I'm finishing up Blood Magick (Cousins O'Dwyer, Bk 3) Author: Nora Roberts which, as much as I was looking forward to it, isn't holding my interest.

I was going to start The Kent Brothers trilogy just last night but decided to start Driven by K Bromberg instead.

Finished two small ones yesterday, Grace Burrowes A Kiss for Luck and Jill Shalvis's Merry Christmas Baby, both sweet short reads.

I'm currently reading The One Who Saves Me - Home Series, Bk 6 Author: Cardeno C..  I'd read most of the rest of the series but not this one.  I love friends to lovers books and this one does a great job of that.

Howdy, Patrick!

I'm still reading Driven. I'm liking it so far but I'm having a heck of a time finding reading time this week.

I read a few books that were okay but nothing special - This is Falling by Ginger Scott, and Eversea and Forever Jack by Natasha Boyd.

Finished Mary Wine's In Bed with a Stranger and it was good, glad I didn't pay full price for it though.

Time for my annual rereads of Sweet Light (Harlequin American Romance, No 467) Author: Judith Arnold and Season of Light (Harlequin Superromance, No 528) Author: Lorna Michaels.  Very sad that I can't find anything newer!

I read Jamie McGuire's Happenstance and it was alright. Now reading Rome by Jay Crownover.

I'm working thru the SEALs of Winter boxed set.  Love me some military romance.

Taking a break from that to read Nobody's Lost by Kallypso Masters that released today.

I'm reading Jacked by Tina Reber.

Just saw that one. I'll be anxious to hear how it is. Love Unscripted was my first Kindle Prime borrow and got me hooked on indy NA authors.

Lsressler: I loved both of those books and I'm not much of an NA reader. I've just started but it has hooked me right away.

I read Nobody's Lost in one day.  It was good but not nearly as good as the other books in the series.  I think it could have used another polish before publishing.

Back to my SEALs of Winter.  The stories are all set around Christmas which is what I like to read this time of the year.  About halfway thru.  It's a mega-volume with over 800 pages but it was only 99 cents so quite the bargain.

I haven't been reading a lot lately but I did read Jay Crownover's Rome and I'm now reading Nash.

Finished Karen Ranney's Till we Next Meet and it was good...could have used a bit longer ending, IMO. I also finished Sharon Sala's Going Gone and it was a good read...nothing is wow'ing me lately.

I finished Nash and like it. Then read Kiro's Emily (currently free on kindle) but if you haven't read the series, it probably won't mean much to you. And if you're not current with the series, the ending gives something away that happened in a previous book.

Think I'm going to read Entice by Rachel Van Dyken. It's in the middle of a series, but it was loaned to me through booklending so I'm hoping I can follow it without reading the previous books.

I'm such a slacker. I haven't been in here in too long.

I loved Driven and am looking forward to the rest of that trilogy.

I read a few m/m's:

Drown by Alex Jones....WAY too many religious issues for me.

Full Disclosure by Kindle Alexander....loved.

Let it Ride by LC Chase...loved.

I think I'll start the new Larissa Ione, Revenant.

I finished Entice and it was pretty good, considering I was missing the back story on all the characters. It was different and a little unrealistic (20 year old mafia bosses?), but still good.

Then I read Bad For You by Abbi Glines. It was similar to most of her books but I still liked it.

I just finished Mexican Heat (m/m) and I absolutely loved it. Far and away one of the best m/m books I've ever read. And pretty high on my favorites list regardless of genre. Recently finished Reaper's Stand by Joanna Wylde - very good also. Love that series.

Haven't decided what's next yet.
