Moving this to June where it belongs...LOL!  Although...I cant believe its June already!

I should get The Liar soon, I just had it posted to me a few days ago. Cant wait! I love Nora's suspense novels. Yeah, they're somewhat predictable and you notice the recycling of a scene or patterns in the romance but they're comfort reads for me. Easy to read and I know I'll enjoy them.

Gus was pretty great. Then I read For the Living by LA Witt, who seems to be a hit or miss for me. This one was a miss.

Now reading Chasing the Rainbow by Kade Boehme.

Melissa, I knew what you meant. ;-)


 

I finished Jennifer Ashley's Grant and really liked it much better than the first one. Ladies, you have go grab Claudia Conner's Worth The Risk and Worth the Fall, the McKinney Brothers. These have been phenomenal reads...at least I thought so. I didn't review them very well, but they have lots of detailed reviews on GRs. I can't wait for JTs book...hate that we have to go to 2016 to get it. Then we get a whole flock of brothers with Heather's brothers. Yea Nick and Tia's book will be first. They almost took Stephen and Hannah's book over with their smoldering looks. Also finished Hades, Larissa Ione's book and it was a sweet read. Shards of Hope should be in my mailbox today....yea!!! Now if I can just hold off until the weekend to start it.

I mentioned in last month's thread, that I was reading Robyn Carr's Virgin River series.  While waiting for a book to come in so I could read the series in order, I started reading her stand alone novel, The Wedding Party.  Sure am enjoying the book.

Loved the first four books in the VR series and then it became kind of formulaic from that point. Her Grace Valley trilogy are all good solid reads and they tie in with VR in a small way.

I'm trying to read a physical book each weekend when I'm home so this past weekend I read White Trash Damaged. I really liked it, better than the first book. Then I read Beautiful Broken Mess, which lived up to its name, the relationship between the H and h was a broken mess. I wanted to start the third in the series but I started watching the second part of Outlander and got hooked on that.

Finished Nalini Singh's Shards of Hope and it was a awesome read...loved Aden and Zaira's romance. Wasn't as strong as say Kaleb and Sahara's, but very important to the overall story arc.

I keep losing track of this thread. :/

I'm reaching the halfway point in The Fiery Cross. Slow-moving, but that's about the only bad thing I can say about it.

Lisa, it's part of a three book series, Beautiful Broken Rules, Beautiful Broken Mess and Beautiful Broken Promises. The main characters are introduced in the previous book but you could read them as stand alones. You just wouldn't know the back stories.

Just finished the second book in Robyn Carr's Virgin River series . . . Shelter Island.  It's every bit as good as book #1.  Now on to #3.

lol - moving my post too...

Uncivilized was awesome. I really really liked it! Very erotic and different. Read an SEP - Kiss an Angel - that was good too. A little different for her too. Some mystical elements. Read Coming Home by MJ O'Shea (m/m) also good. Now I'm reading Law of Moses. I've been putting it off forever. I know it will be good, but I'm afraid it's going to be emotional. Haven't had the energy for that lately.

Finished Penny Watson's 3 Klaus brothers books that she currently has out, but I sure hope she gets finished with Gregori and Heather's book soon, I want to know what those two are up to. It is a very light, sweet series and perfect for someone that doesn't want any of the hard lovey dovey stuff.  Also finished Grace Burrowes's Thomas and I really liked Thomas, what a sweetie he was to Loris, but all of her mens are. A very solid good read.

I didn't really care for Chasing the Rainbow but I gave the author another shot with Chance of the Heart and am so glad I did. I really, really like that one!

I also read Getting Played by Mia Storm and loved it. I didn't know that the hero in this one was the brother in the first book. I adore him!

Just finished The Boy with the Painful Tattoo by Josh Lanyon. Very good third installment of the series. JX is so good for Christopher. I do find that I always wish there was a little more of their relationship in the books though. There's a scene where they're discussing their sexual relationship and it's just so awesome I want to read it over and over. Adrien English and Jake make a cameo in this one too. I haven't read that series yet though. But I'm sure gonna!! Also reading Fixed on You by Laurelin Page but it's just meh, and it may just be a dnf for me.

I finally finished The Fiery Cross which was, of course, amazing.

This weekend I also finished Naughty Bits by Joey W. Hill which was pretty meh, and Cherise Sinclair's Edge of the Enforcer which was amazing. DeVries was one of my favorite masters yet. :)

I  read Lorelei James's Cowgirls Don't Cry. I liked it but it had the worst prologue ever. Then I read Megan Hart's Lovely Wild, not a romance but really good. Next is Amy Harmon's Song of David. I love her books.

Finished Jennifer Ashley's Lion Eyes out of the Dark and Damaged anthology, picked 6 stories for 99 cents, but it was worth it for that one ebook alone. Really liked Bree and Seamus as a couple. Also reading Mary Balogh's The Proposal and really liking that. I recently finished Karen Hawkin's An Affair to Remember. It was a cute, fun read, but not sure what the title had to do with the book. Looking forward to the next in that series.

Omg...I just finished In the Absence of Light by Adrienne Wilder. I cant even say how much I loved it. I was freakin' downright giddy throughout most of the book. Stupid smile on my face and even laughing out loud.  I SO didn't want it to end.

I read a novella by Kade Boehme, Proud Heart and loved it. It was a nice catching up story starring the Chance of the Heart guys. 

I also read Grey by E.L. James. Yep I admit it....I bought it. Now I'll admit this...I coulda lived without it. Lol. I didn't hate it, but I didn't love it either.

I really liked The Song of David, not quite as much as The Law of Moses, but it was still really good. Now I'm reading Obsession in Death, good so far.

I'm on my library's waiting list for the ebook of Grey. I feel like I have to read it but am glad the library has it. With all the lending sites and overdrive from the library, I'm almost too cheap to spend $8 on an ebook anymore. I have a few $5 books I plan to buy but am hoping the price goes down a little.
