It’s time again for the Monday Musts! I love this meme and am so excited Jessica of Lovin’ los libros came up with it! Let’s talk about my Must Read, a Must Listen and a Must See for the week, shall we?


Must Read

Monday Musts [4]After the Kiss by Lauren Layne
Series: Sex Love & Stiletto #1
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance
Publication date: August 26, 2013
Publisher: Loveswept
Add it: Goodreads

Julie Greene loves flings. Loves steamy first dates, sizzling first kisses, and every now and then, that first sexy romp between the sheets. Comfy pants, sleepy Sundays, movie nights on the couch? Shudder. But when Julie gets assigned the hardest story of her career—a first-person account of that magical shift between dating and "I do"—she'll need a man brave enough to give a total commitment-phobe a chance at more.

Normally, Mitchell Forbes would be exactly that man. A devastatingly hot workaholic who tends to stay in relationships for far too long, he should be the perfect subject for Julie's "research." But what Julie doesn't know is that Mitchell is looking to cut loose for once in his life. And the leggy journalist notorious for avoiding love is exactly the type of no-strings fling he's looking for. In other words, Mitchell is the polar opposite of what Julie needs right now. And, at the same time, he's exactly what she wants.


I spent a large part of this weekend binge-reading Lauren Layne’s Sex, Love & Stiletto series. I regret nothing. I love Lauren’s writing. This series was sexy, sweet and funny. It also packed an emotional punch at times. Books like this are why I love contemporary romance so much. This one should absolutely be on your TBR.

Must Listen

This isn’t new, but I kinda fell into a Ed Sheeran hole the other night and probably watched this six times. I love Ed’s covers and this one… *fans self* Love that little smirk. 😉

Must See

In honor of last night’s Super Bowl – which I’m watching as I write this post – I give you one of my favorite things on the internet… Bad Lip Reading of the NFL. These are amazing. Bonus with this one? My future husband JJ Watt is featured. <3

  1. Ed Sheeran covering Pony is probably one of the best things I’ve listened to in a long time. I swear that man can sing anything! Definitely adding After the Kiss to my TBR I have a lot of fantasy/scifi planned for the next while. It’ll be nice to have some good contemporary to break it up!

      *sigh* I love me some Ed. Singing dirty songs? Even better. I hope you’ll love Lauren’s writing! If you’re a contemporary romance fan, I suspect you might. She’s wonderful!

  2. Obviously you’re killing me with the Lauren Layne books because I think I only have the first. But I definitely will get the others after I read it! I’m so glad you loved them! Oh I need to watch that video especially if JJ is involved. LOL.

    And I’ll give Ed’s version a listen in just a few! Excited though! I love him.

  3. New follower here! Just had to say that I love your blog and I LOVE this meme, I think I’m going to start doing this one on my blog cause it looks like a lot of fun 🙂 I love Ed Sheeran, he’s such a beautiful genius when it comes to music! And thanks for the Bad Lip Reading of NFL, this was hilarious!!!

      Hi!! Thanks for stopping by and giving my blog love. 🙂 I love this meme, too. It’s nice to talk about books AND other things. I feel like I really get to know the other bloggers who participate because I’m seeing the other things they enjoy or find amusing. Ed Sheeran is amazing. There are SO MANY incredible covers on YouTube. I frequently fall into an Ed hole. Bad Lip Reading is my favorite. They always make me laugh out loud!
