3 Quick and Dirty Reviews

I've read three books very quickly over the last few days, and I wanted to get out my thoughts on them. They were all released by Loveswept in May and June of this year, and I've been really tardy in getting to them.

As a group, I thought all three were middling contemporary romances, one featuring a billionaire, one a bad boy/nice girl, and one a cowboy. They were all quick reads - a couple of hours at most - and well written, though I had problems with each.

So... hello!

Hey folks!

I know it's been an age and a half since you last really heard from me. Life this summer has been crazy busy. 

Mainly, it's having my daughter home for the summer. She's much more demanding in terms of attention and being entertained than my son is. 

I've got a pair of book reviews that will go up this week, and I'm hoping to get back on the wagon through the end of the month. I'm also expecting that I'll insert a few non-review type posts, chatting about balancing blogging and life, about reading, about books in general. 

So, please, stick with me!  There's lots of great content on the way.

Release Blitz: Scorched by Jennifer L. Armentrout


I'm happy to participate in the Release Week Blitz for Jennifer L. Armentrout's Scorched. Scorched is a standalone New Adult Contemporary Romance and is a part of Jennifer L. Armentrout’s Frigid Series. With everything happening in the US last week, the author asked us to hold blitz posts, so I'm blitzing a bit late, but I'm still coming to the party!

Amazon Paperback ** Amazon Kindle ** Barnes and Noble **iBooks

 SCORCHED Synopsis: Sometimes life leaves a mark… Most days, Andrea doesn’t know whether she wants to kiss Tanner or punch him in the gut. He is seriously hot, with legit bedroom eyes and that firefighter body of his, but he’s a major player, and they can’t get along for more than a handful of minutes. Until now. Tanner knows he and Andrea have had an epic love/hate relationship for as long as he can remember, but he wants more love than hate from her. He wants her. Now. Tomorrow. But the more he gets to know her, the more it becomes obvious that Andrea has a problem. She’s teetering on the edge and every time he tries to catch her, she slips through his fingers. Andrea’s life is spiraling out of control, and it doesn’t matter that Tanner wants to save her, because when everything falls apart and she’s speeding toward rock bottom, only she can save herself. Sometimes life makes you work for that happily ever after…  

Praise for SCORCHED: “Armentrout’s latest new adult offering tackles substance abuse and mental illness — and, thankfully, the love of a good man is not going to be what heals this heroine.” – RT Book Reviews


And don’t miss the first standalone book in the series…



Amazon ** Barnes and Noble ** iBooks
