I'm reading Lady Luck by Kristen Ashley.  I wasn't expecting it to wow me based on the reviews on Goodreads (KA fans liked it but not with the love that some of her other books got), but I think it's fabulous.  For a change, it's the heroine who is making the book for me.  I love Lexie, and who she is and what she wants to be for Ty.  Such a touching love story - two people sticking together against the world.

Finished How to Misbehave -- good story. Now I think I need to reread Trick of Time so I can review it. Sigh...

Lady Luck is my favorite KA book.

I'm still reading Shadow by Laurann Dohner.

Again been on a reading binge this time with Anne Gracie and her Devil Riders series, I finished To Catch a Bride, The Accidental Wedding and Bride by Mistake and they were all solid good reads and I do hope to see Marcus's book one of these days. I also finished KMM's The Highlander's Touch and I must say that was an awesome sexy read! I liked book one, loved book 2, but book 3 was just downright sexy at times. I hope some day she comes back to this series. She sat Douglas up beautifully for his own story. *sigh*  Now I am reading Karen Rose's No One Left To Tell. I had it on my currenly reading list since the end of last year, but hesitated because I wasn't in the mood for a high body count book, should have trusted KR because this book has been really good and the sparks are just flying between Paige and Grayson.

I just finished Caine's Reckoning by Sarah McCarty. It's been sitting on my tbr shelf for quite a while now. I'm not really much into cowboys or westerns. I think I picked this up at a ubs somewhere or something. And now I'm hooked! It was really good. Wow! Caine was a total dream. <sigh>

Now I'm reading The Edge of Never by JA Redmerski. And Lover Unbound by JR Ward.

E-version of Lara Adrian's Kiss of Crimson. Hooked me in at the first page, just like the first book did.

I love that Annabel Joseph series, too, Melissa. Still haven't gotten to Odalisque yet, though. 

I'm almost finished with Pamela Clare's Breaking Point (I-Team, Bk 5). Really liked it so far.

Tonya, The Edge of Never was SO good!!

I'm pretty sure this is the one my bf said had her bawling at the end. And she thought something was wrong w/her cuz she's not an emotional person. Nevertheless, I'm bracing. I'm a total sap. Though I haven't had a book make me cry in a good long while.

Finished Lady Luck.  I loved it.  Ty and Lexie were the bomb, and I loved how much of Tate there was in this one.

I should probably give myself a break from KA, but I really want to dip into Breathe now that I've finished Lady Luck and I want to get to Chace's story.

I have the latest Jill Shalvis (Animal something?) and the latest Hells Eight from Sarah McCarty.... but I also have a book I need to review, too.  lol   Decisions decisions!

Reading The Fortune Hunter by Diane Farr -- everyone was right, it's much better than Falling for Chloe.

Discarded three ebooks last night that were not even noteworthy enough to mention their names.  Believe I am going to start the newest Maya Banks KGI book tonight.

Yep, I was bawling when I read The Edge of Never.

I finished Odalisque. I think they keep getting better and better! Now on to the last one, Command Performance.

The Gamble (Colorado Mountain, #1) 
Sweet Dreams (Colorado Mountain, #2) 
Lady Luck (Colorado Mountain, #3) 
Breathe (Colorado Mountain, #4)
 
 
I just finished Breaking Point (I-Team, Bk 5) and thought it was great. What an action-packed final few chapters! Moving on to Evangeline Anderson's Claimed

Finishing up Escorted -- forget the author's name. It has some "self-published" issues but the storytelling is very good.

I finished Command and Performance. Loved the whole series!

Now after listening to EVERYONE rave about Hopeless by Colleen Hoover, I'll be starting that.

Finished Karen Rose's No One Left To Tell and I must say that the love scenes were really kicked up several notches. I think this is her best book to date and she has quite a few out there. Also her highest body count ever. Can be read a standalone with no problem. I also finished Victoria Vane's Treacherous Temptations and although I had problems with our hero, Hadley, she did a great job of turning him around for me. However the ending didn't quite work for me, so 3.75 stars. Now I am reading James Rollins and Rebecca Cantrell's Blood Gospel. Good and creepy so far.

Gah, why does Rose keep feeling she has to get *more* violent?

To be truthful Willa, this wasn't the in your face body count that she generally goes with. This was more subtle and off page to where it didn't feel as bad as some of the others, but the ending layes it all out and we are talking over several years, but you will be surprised at who did it...or I was anyway.
