WWW Wednesday [50]

Posted April 26, 2017 by Kim in WWW Wednesday / 2 Comments

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 [50]For You by Kristen Ashley

Publication date: March 14, 2011
Publisher: Self-Published

Lieutenant Alexander Colton and February Owens were high school sweethearts. Everyone in their small town knew from the moment they met they were meant for each other. But something happened and Feb broke Colt’s heart then she turned wild and tragedy struck. Colt meted out revenge against the man who brought Feb low but even though Colt risked it all for her, Feb turned her back on him and left town.

Fifteen years later, Feb comes back to help run the family bar. But there’s so much water under the bridge separating her and Colt everyone knows they’ll never get back together.

Until someone starts hacking up people in Feb’s life. Colt is still Colt and Feb is still Feb so the town watches as Colt goes all out to find the murderer while trying to keep Feb safe.

As the bodies pile up, The Feds move in and a twisting, turning story unravels exposing a very sick man who has claimed numerous victims along the way, Feb and Colt battle their enduring attraction and the beautiful but lost history that weaves them together.

After it was announced that Kristen Ashley would be at Apollycon in 2018, I decided it was time to binge another of her series. I picked up all the audios for The ‘Burg series because my bookish bestie always talks about how great they are. I’m about 3/4 of the way done with this one now and I have a total love/hate relationship with the book. (Mostly love, however.) It’s a total mindfuck… but in a good way. I’ve gone from swooning to wanting to throw my phone across the room to being totally freaked out to swooning again. What a roller coaster!

what did you recently finish reading

WWW Wednesday [50]It Happened on Love Street by Lia Riley
Series: Everland Georgia #1
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance
Publication date: April 25, 2017
Publisher: Forever
Add it: Goodreads
Buy it: Amazon

The most romantic place she never wanted to be...

Pepper Knight moved to Everland, Georgia, as step one in her plan for a successful legal career. But after this big-city gal's plans go awry, going home with her tail between her legs isn't an option. So when the town vet-and her sexy new neighbor-offers Pepper a temporary dog-walking job, she jumps at the chance. No one needs to know that man's best friend is her worst nightmare... or that Everland's hot animal whisperer leaves her panting.

The last thing Rhett Valentine wants is to be the center of small-town gossip. After his first love left him at the altar, he's been there, done that. These days, life is simple, just the way he likes it. But sultry southern nights get complicated once sparks fly between him and the knockout next door. When she proposes a sexy, secret fling-all the deliciousness and none of the prying neighbors-it seems too good to be true. And it is. Because Pepper's determined to leave Love Street, and when she goes, she just might take his heart with her...

If you saw my review for It Happened on Love Street yesterday, you know how much I enjoyed this book! If you’re a small town romance fan, you should absolutely check this one out.

WWW Wednesday [50]Mister Romance by Leisa Rayven
Series: Masters of Love #1
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance
Publication date: April 30, 2017
Publisher: Self-Published
Add it: Goodreads
Buy it: Amazon

Max Riley is the man of your dreams. Or at least he will be, for a price.

As his alter-ego Mister Romance, Max is a drop-dead gorgeous escort who makes romantic fantasies come to life. No sex, just swoon-worthy dates to die for, and the cream of New York's socialites can't get enough. Whether they want a dominating billionaire, bad boy with a heart of gold, hot geek, sexy biker, or best friend who loves them from afar, Max can make it all happen, but he's careful to keep his real identity a secret.

Enter investigative journalist Eden Tate. Having caught wind of the urban legend of Mister Romance from a lovestruck client, Eden is determined to publish a scathing expose on Max and his ability to swindle lonely society women out of their fortunes.

Desperate to protect his anonymity and his clients, Max challenges Eden to give him three dates. If she doesn't fall in love with him, she can run her story with his blessing. If she succumbs to his charms, the story dies.

Cynical Eden has no doubt she can resist his fake romance personas, but when the real Max admits he’s falling for her, she has to decide if the professional liar is telling the truth, or if the passionate man with the mysterious past is just one more character designed to con her out of her career-making story.

This one sounds really good and it’s been awhile since I read one of Leisa’s books. I’m looking forward to diving into this one soon!
