I just started a free ebook - touching ghost I think it's called- something with ghost in the title - it's a SEAL romance...only a page or 2 into it but hopefully it will be good.

I finally finished Silent Scream... the romance was good, but the rest never really worked for me. Oh well, it's done and I can move on in the series.

Picked up an astonishingly bad m/m freebie today, Greeting Cards. It was cute, but so awkwardly and flatly written. I'm flabbergasted by all the 4 and 5 star reviews.

I finished The Fault in Our Stars last night and bawled my eyes out. I was really great though.

Now on to some m/m...Plan B, by SJD Peterson.

I finished Groupie and I totally get why everyone thought he was such a jerk. He was.

I'm reading Darynda Jones Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet. It's been so long since I read the third one, some things are kinda foggy. Reyes is super freakin hot though, I do remember that!!

Keri - I loved TJ & Harley, too.  Fun book!

i'm reading Brenda Novak's When Snow Falls.

I need to find another book to WOW me, because after reading so many Kristen Ashley books lately, which are so so so good and fun and funny, I'm having a hard time even liking anything else.  She's ruined me.

Nobody does alpha heroes like her.

I am currently reading NTM Jill Sorenson's Aftershock and so far it has been pretty darn good.

It was just so frustrating. He wasn't like Jake in The Mighty Storm - who I really liked. He really never redeemed himself in my eyes. Spoiler: He couldn't keep it in his pants and she was supposed to be okay with that because he never promised he would. She was always "the other woman". After awhile it became obvious that he wasn't going to change and it made me lose respect for her in the end. There was a twist on the ending that made it not really an ending at all, but more of a segue into the next book. Will he redeem himself there??? Idk, and I haven't read any reviews on the second book yet either.

Nora Roberts - Angels Fall.  Just started, seems good.

Just finished:

Teresa Medeiros - (1) Some Like it Wicked and (2) Some Like it Wild, both wonderfully entertaining.

Gave up on: Nora Roberts - Private Scandals, kept having to force myself to read it, finally skipped to the end to see whodunit.  Uninteresting, flat characters.

I'm actually reading Rock Chick again to see if I like it better now that I've read the whole series. So far it is better than the first time.

I also totally think that KA writes alpha heroes better than anybody else. Edited because holy crap I do know the difference between write and right.

Finished the Jill Sorenson book and I loved it! I liked the h/h, but OMGosh I fell in love with young Owen and his and Penny's situation kept trying to overtake the story. Hope we get their book in the future.

Keri I will check my Nook and see and if it is, I will loan it to you.

I finished Night Blade by JC Daniels and really , if you haven't read this series yet, you need to.  I was GUTTED emotionally.  It was just incredible.

I finished When Snow Falls by Brenda Novak.  It was just meh.  Good bad boy from the wrong side of the tracks hero, but that's about it.

I finished Boys by G.A. Hauser. Aside from one character that I absolutely despised, I liked it.

Now reading How to Save a Life by Sloan Parker.
