WWW Wednesday [42]

Posted January 18, 2017 by Kim in WWW Wednesday / 1 Comment

It’s that time again… time for the W… W… W… Wednesday meme! The original meme was good, but I’m a moody reader who doesn’t stick to a schedule, so I had a tough time with the “reading next” question each week. Problem solved! My girl Jessica from Lovin’ los libros was having the same problem, so she decided to tweak the meme to better fit her needs. (And mine, in the process!) She changed the final question to ask “What are you waiting to read?” so it gives a chance to talk about an upcoming release you’re excited about OR a book from your TBR!

Are you ready to hear about what I’m currently reading, what I recently finished reading and what I’m waiting to read?

WWW Wednesday [42]Kulti by Mariana Zapata
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance
Publication date: March 20, 2015
Publisher: Self-Published
Add it: Goodreads

“Trust me, I’ve wanted to punch you in the face a time or five.”

When the man you worshipped as a kid becomes your coach, it’s supposed to be the greatest thing in the world. Keywords: supposed to.

It didn’t take a week for twenty-seven-year-old Sal Casillas to wonder what she’d seen in the international soccer icon—why she’d ever had his posters on her wall, or ever envisioned marrying him and having super-playing soccer babies.

Sal had long ago gotten over the worst non-break-up in the history of imaginary relationships with a man that hadn’t known she’d existed. So she isn’t prepared for this version of Reiner Kulti who shows up to her team’s season: a quiet, reclusive, shadow of the explosive, passionate man he’d once been.

Nothing could have prepared her for the man she got to know.

Or the murderous urges he brought out in her.

“Sal, please don’t make me visit you in jail. Orange isn’t your color.”

This was going to be the longest season of her life.

I’ve not gotten too far into this one yet, but I’m far enough in to know I’m really going to enjoy it! I just love Mariana’s writing. I’m so glad I finally made the time to read her books!

WWW Wednesday [42]Dirty Money by Jessica Clare
Series: Roughneck Billionaires #1
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance
Publication date: January 17, 2017
Publisher: Penguin/InterMix
Add it: Goodreads
Buy it: Amazon

Boone Price and his brothers know oil; at least, the dirty, backbreaking side of working an oil rig. But when their scrubby, worthless hunting land turns out to be sitting on top of one of the biggest oil wells in North America, they go from the rig to the boardroom and end up billionaires practically overnight.

Now with enough money to do whatever he wants, Boone is developing a taste for fine things. And the finest thing he's ever seen is Ivy Smithfield, local realtor. Boone's determined to buy her affection and show the world that he's more than just a dirty fool with a bit of money. Ivy's classy and beautiful - she'll make the perfect trophy wife. The fact that she's sexy and funny is just a bonus.

There's one tiny problem - Ivy's as dirt poor as Boone is. Her carefully crafted veneer of luxury? All an act to promote her business. What's Boone going to do when he finds out the woman he's falling for is, well, in his league?

I liked this one quite a bit! It’s especially good if you like your heroes a little gruffer … and unafraid of a little hard work. The dirty talk didn’t hurt matters, either.

WWW Wednesday [42]The Devil's Daughter by Katee Robert
Genres: Adult, Romance, Suspense
Publication date: January 24, 2017
Publisher: Montlake Romance
Add it: Goodreads
Buy it: Amazon

Growing up in a small town isn’t easy, especially when you’re the daughter of a local cult leader. Ten years ago, Eden Collins left Clear Springs, Montana, and never once looked back. But when the bodies of murdered young women surface, their corpses violated and marked with tattoos worn by her mother’s followers, Eden, now an FBI agent, can’t turn a blind eye. To catch the killer, she’s going to have to return to the fold.

Sheriff Zach Owens isn’t comfortable putting Eden in danger, even if she is an elite agent. And he certainly wasn’t expecting to be so attracted to her. As calm and cool as she appears, he knows this can’t be a happy homecoming. Zach wants to protect her—from her mother, the cult, and the evil that lurks behind its locked gates. But Eden is his only key to the tight-lipped group, and she may just be closer to the killer than either one of them suspects…

This book releases next week, so I need to read it this week! I’m excited about reading something new (and suspenseful!) from Katee Robert.
