WWW Wednesday [60]

Posted July 12, 2017 by Kim in WWW Wednesday / 0 Comments

Happy hump day, y’all! It’s time for a little midweek reading round up as I talk about what I’m currently reading, what I recently finished and what I’m waiting to read — either an upcoming release or a book from my TBR.

WWW Wednesday [60]Under Locke by Mariana Zapata
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance
Publication date: January 19, 2014
Publisher: Self-Published

He was my boss, my brother’s friend, a Widower, an ex-felon, and a man I’d seen casually with a handful of women. But he was everything that gripped me, both the good and the bad. Worst case scenario if things turned awkward between us, I could go somewhere else. I’d gotten over epic heartbreak before, one more wouldn’t kill me.

After moving to Austin following six months of unemployment back home, Iris Taylor knows she should be glad to have landed a job so quickly... even if the business is owned by a member of the same motorcycle club her estranged father used to belong to. Except Dex Locke might just be the biggest jerk she’s ever met. He’s rude, impatient and doesn’t know how to tell time.

And the last thing they ever expected was each other.

But it was either the strip club or the tattoo shop.

… she should have chosen the strip club.

I figure I can reread my favorite Mariana Zapata books forever… or I can branch out and tackle the rest of her backlist. So, that’s what I’m doing. I am liking this one! I’ve just not had a whole lot of audiobook listening time lately, so I’m pacing myself.

what did you recently finish reading

WWW Wednesday [60]Illegal Contact by Santino Hassell
Series: The Barons #1
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance, LGBTQ
Publication date: August 15, 2017
Publisher: Penguin/InterMix
Add it: Goodreads
Buy it: Amazon

New York Barons tight end Gavin Brawley is suspended from the team and on house arrest after a video of him brawling goes viral. Gavin already has a reputation as a jerk with a temper on and off the field—which doesn’t help him once he finds himself on the wrong side of the law. And while he’s been successful professionally, he’s never been lucky when it comes to love.

Noah Monroe is a recent college grad looking for a job—any job—to pay off his mounting student debt. Working as Gavin’s personal assistant/babysitter seems like easy money. But Noah isn’t prepared for the electrifying tension between him and the football player. He’s not sure if he’d rather argue with Gavin or tackle him to the floor. But both men know the score, and neither is sure what will happen once Gavin's timeout is over…

My first ever Santino Hassell book (or, when he wasn’t writing with someone else, anyhow) and I LOVED IT. It was raw and gritty and realistic. I’m a sucker for football books and this one ticked all my boxes. So good.

WWW Wednesday [60]The Difference Between Us by Rachel Higginson
Series: Opposites Attract #2
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance
Publication date: July 25, 2017
Publisher: Self-Published

I'm cursed.

At least when it comes to finding Mr. Right.

I'm tired of men that only want one night stands or blind dates that are nothing but awkward and uncomfortable. I'm tired of avoiding inappropriate text messages and the constant disappointment of always meeting Mr. Wrong.

After all these years of dates that lead nowhere, I can admit that it's me. I'm the problem. I'm shy and picky and cursed. Definitely cursed.

So I've decided two things.

The first? I'm giving up dating and relationships and men in general. Maybe, possibly, forever.

The second? I'm going to have to try harder to avoid Ezra Baptiste.

If I couldn't hack it in the kiddy pool of dating, I certainly can't swim in his deep end. He's too successful. Too intense. He's all man when I'm used to nothing but boys pretending to be grownups. He's everything I'm afraid to want and so far out of my league we might as well be different species entirely.

So he'll need to find a different artist to paint his mural. And a different graphic designer to help him with his website. He'll need to find someone else to glare at and flirt with and kiss.

It can't be me.

We're too different.

I’ve been looking forward to this book since I finished The Opposite of You and I just found out I’m getting an ARC! Eeeep! I think Molly and Ezra’s story is going to be great. I can’t wait to go in!
