Just finished Saint Odd by Koontz and The Clairvoyant by Marian Thurm both pretty good reads.  Clairvoant  romance was intresting with the Male lead being the reader.  Funny book with 2 story lines going.  

Starting Bella and the Beast by Olivia Drake.   First chapter is reading very good hope it keeps up!

Just finished Maya Rodale's Lady Bridget's Diary and it was good, but was more interested in what her sister had been up to and where. She is the next book, so I am eager to get that one.

I finally had the time to finish The Air He Breathes. I was teary eyed through practically the whole book, sooooo good. I wouldn't change a thing.

I read Six Ways from Sunday and Sidelined by Mercy Celeste, today. Both good but I REALLY enjoyed Sidelined!

Hmmmm, not sure what's up next.

I've been gone for a week (did you miss me? cheeky ) and got so much read!! 

Two more in the Bluewater Bay series:  Wedding Favors by Anne Tenino and Rain Shadow by L.A. Witt.  The Tenino was the least favourite of the series so far.  

I also read two Portland Heat books by Annabeth Albert but neither is in the system here: Served Hot and Baked Fresh.  I'd read the third book, Delivered Fast, in the trilogy first.  LOL 

I also read a Mitford book by Jan Karon: Somewhere Safe with Somebody Good. 

It was so lovely having time to read!

Just finished reading Last One Home by Debbie Macomber.  Not bad, but I found out there are (4) other copies posted now so I guess I'll have it for awhile.  surprise

We did Ani. :-) I finished Anna Lee Huber's Mortal Arts, while mainly a mystery, Keira and Sebastian "relationship" is starting to heat up. I also finished Jill Sorenson's Against the Wall and it was good. It was a New Adult, so it took me awhile to tune into it.

I started on The Most Wanted by Annika Martin.  Anyone else reading this series?  It makes me literally LOL.  I find it a bit twisted but I just go with it because it's so witty.

I see Linda Howard's backlist is coming out in ebook.  My library keeps getting them, I see MacKenzie's Moutain is the latest one they've gotten.

I just finished Night Raven by Kaitlyn O'Connor. She is one of my favorite authors and I don't know why I left this one on my TBR pile this long.  Another good KO read.

Knave of Hearts by Elizabeth Boyle

First dance by Karen Kendall

First Love byJulie Kenner

Finished Cindy Gerard's Taking Fire and while it wasn't the strongest book of hers, it was certainly a good read. Also read D D Ayers Primal Force and while that book was the strongest in the series so far....I had a lot of questions once the book was over and the ending had a HFN feel to it. I am hoping with Law's sister's book we get some more of Law and Jori. LOL...he was such a jerk for most of the book, he was hard to like, but DD eventually did it and turned him around. I think this book needed about a 100 more pages to be an outstanding read.

I'm reading book 9 in the Bluewater Bay series (yes, I've read out of order.  It really doesn't matter after the first couple): When to Hold Them by G.B. Gordon.  I'm about half way through and still waiting to figure out if I like it or not.  And if I don't, why not?

I read Mariana Zapata's The Wall of Wennipeg and Me and it was an AWESOME read!! It was a recommend from my GR friends and I didn't think I was going to like it. It is a slow moving romance to be sure, but well worth the time. I am so glad that I read it. Aiden was a real jerk at times, but not as big a jerk as we thought once we get the story. A reall winner for me. I also read Dukes in Disguise an anthology with Grace Burrowes and they were cute stories. Currently reading the 3rd book in Rebecca Zanetti's Sin Brother's series, Blind Faith and so far so good.

I finished When to Hold Them which could have been a lot better.  I also finished How the Cookie Crumbles  by Jaime Samms, which I enjoyed more except for the abrupt ending. I also read an old Mary Calmes I had someone missed After the Sunset (not listed here) and now I'm starting Come Rain or Come Shine by Jan Karon.

Finally I have a few minutes to pop in here!

So I read Butterfly Dreams by A. Meredith Walters and it was decent.

I read Guardian by Sierra Riley and really liked it. 

Last night I finished Sixty Five Hours by NR Walker and despite a few small editing issues I loved it! Gay socks and all.  *snicker*  Guess you had to be there. cheeky

Reading Rock Addiction by Nalini Singh.  LOVE it.  Can't believe I started it a number of weeks ago and put it down for a while.  I can't put it down now though.

Finished Fire Touched by Patricia Briggs and it was still a good read, even though to me it felt like a story ARC transition book. Which is fine, it just didn't have the impact that she normally does for me. Finished all of Rebecca Zanetti's Sin Brother's seies....*sigh* I loved that entire series and I am so glad to see that she is spinning the series off with another set of "found" brothers!!! Yea!! Called the Lost Bastards series...I think. lol Reading currently Anne Bishop's Marked in Flesh and Mariana Zapata's Under Locke.

Omg, I spent the day reading A Thousand Boy Kisses. I'm exhausted. I've cried so very much. I now have a headache. It was really, really amazing. I very much enjoyed Tillie Cole's MC series so I jumped right into this one, never in a second imagining what I was getting myself into. So totally worth it tho.

Finished off Rock Addiction, can't wait to get my hands on the next one.  I may have to buy it in ebook.

Started and finshed Keep Me Closer by Rhyannon Byrd.  Another awesome book!  Couldn't put that down either until I finished it.

Happy Easter to all my friends! I finished The Seal's Rebel Librarian is was an ok read, but the editing was terrible. I also finished Jeaniene Frost's Halfway to the Grave and again it was just a good read for me. I didn't love it like everybody else does. I have started The Hooker and the Hermit and having a hard time liking Annie. I have a hard time with people that dish it out, but can't take it when someone gives it back to them. There are other unlikable things about her, but that is the major thing right now. Love Ronan though.

I'm working my way thru Lisa Marie Rice's Ghost Ops series.  On the last one now, Breaking Danger.

Good reads but I'm sure I'll forget the plots once I read another book or two after them.

I've just read the first two books in Felice Steven's Breakfast Club:  Beyond the Surface and Betting on Forever.  I just started the third late last night, Second to None.  There's a small follow up, too, but I can't remember the name right now.
