I'm feeling so anxious about all my review books that I'm taking a sanity break with an HP. (It's for a buddy read though, so I'm not completely slacking! ;-) ) Forgotten Husband by Helen Bianchin. Insensitive Douchebag Huband might be a beter title.

I read Off Limits by Sawyer Bennett. Its a new adult romance with a freakin' sexy as hell Marine. Yum...I loved it.

Now going to start Semper Fi by Laura Cooper. Apparently I need another Marine fix.

LOL Willa!

finished The Dom's Dungeon by Cherise Sinclair - re-reading parts of some of my faves just for the heck of it. not sure if I want to co ntinue her club shadowland series - made it through 4 books (cullen's story) but not sure about marcus and raol's stories-they sound darker - at least raol's does with a 24/7 sub relatinship and the sub had been in human bondage /kidnapped - blech!

Finished Dan Brown's Inferno then knocked off Trail Boss by Julia Templeton. Getting ready to start Twitchhiker by Paul Smith. It's a book about a man who traveled around the world by Twitter. He could post where he was and was entirely dependent of being offered transportation and shelter by people via Twitter.

I'm reading Tangle of Need by Singh. I've put off reading it because I hated the cover, which I know sounds stupid. So far though, it's great.

Read The Midnight Breed Companion by Lara Adrian yesterday.  Pretty good and it included a novella of Gideon and Savannah's backstory, which was very good.  Enjoyed it.

I just started that one last night, too! I love how prominent Hawke/Sienna are so far.

did some more reading through my fave ebooks for a while then started Emma, Mr. Knightley and Chili Slaw Dogs by Mary Jane Hathaway - I 'know' this author from a christian romance/cooking blog - mainly the cooking blog - but she has a Love Inspired under Virginia Carmichael. I liked the first in this series (this is book 2) so decided to try this one. haven't gotten too far into it yet but it's ok so far.

Now going to read the next Sawyer Bennett, New Adult book...Off The Record.

I downloaded two NTM Kristen Ashley's, Heaven & Hell and Play it Safe.  They were great, as usual.  I went to her site to see if they should be read in a particular order or whatever (they're stand-alones) and she had a contest running where you answer trivia questions about her books and I was one of the winners.  I get to participate in a small group chat session with her on Friday.  Since I love her books I'm very excited!  Anyone have any questions they want me to ask?

Renee, that's awesome! Heaven & Hell is one of my favorites of hers. Speaking of which, I've been seriously jonesing for the next book in that series — Hap and Luci's story (Untitled (Heaven and Hell, #2)). I'd love to know when she plans to have that one released.

My, that's quite a title, Susanna! smiley

I started The Chocolate Rose by Laura Florand. Would rather space the books out more but I wanted to finished The Chocolate Touch by the end of June so I can recommend it for July if I like it. The Chocolate Rose has a Beauty and the Beast theme, so I'm wondering if The Chocolate Touch will be King Midas.

I am dying to read more Kristen Ashley.  Still have the last Rock Chick book to read, and the Burg series, and all of the stand alones.... but too many books I need to review first.  <sigh>

I've read the Rock Chicks and the Dream Man series.  Not sure if the next one I'll pick up will be the Colorado series or the Burg series.  Any suggestions?

I'm reading Paper Roses by Amanda Cabot. It's a western marriage of convenience story.

I LOVED The 'Burg series!!!  Of course, that's the only KA series I've read so far though.  cheeky

Michelle, Sadie & Hector's book is one of my favorites.  It wasn't an easy read, though.

Sherri, I loved both series, but I think the 'Burg was better, JMTCW.

My account seems to be in hyperdrive lately.  I posted a bunch of WL books that I weeded from my keeper shelf and I've gotten a TON of FIFO requests, so much that I've mailed out close to 50 books in the last 3 weeks.  I've also gotten about a dozen WL offers come in, so it's good I've got the credits!

I am reading the Dream Man series finished MM, WM and currently reading LM and personally I think Mitch is being a real asshat currently. Sherry I have read one Burg and one Colorado series and liked them both.

I haven't read any 'Burgh books yet, but I love love love the Colorado Mountain series. The Gamble will forever hold a special place in my heart since it popped my KA cherry.

Sherri, the Chaos series might be a good way to follow the Dream Man series since it follows that same line of characters. Plus, it has bonus Tack scenes. ;)

Paper Roses by Amanda Cabot was a dud. Read about 100 pages and dnf'd.

As far as KA goes, I'm so terrible about having to read IN ORDER.  KA's site suggested reading order  says Colorado or Burg series next.  I want to read the Chas series too but I just finished with the Dream Man series and I don't want to overindulge.  LOL
